As we hoped Kathryn is in New York this weekend for the special screening of the Reverie pilot at the New York Comic Con event.

And by the looks of it she is having some fun.

A couple of photos now in the Gallery courtesy of social media accounts.  More will be added as I find them.

Update 1: A short video of Kathryn and Jessica Lu added.

Update 3: A load of red carpet photos added.

Reverie Posters! Kathryn!

artwork_002Despite the announcements there is always that doubt that maybe Kathryn won’t be in the TV series Reverie.  For what ever reason these things can change.  Assuming Kathryn will star we can’t yet be sure the extent of her role within the show.

artwork_002Ahead of the pilot screening this weekend some of those fears have been allayed by the release of a couple of posters.  As you can see above, Kathryn is right there on the promotional material confirming a March 2018 première.  In this composite image she’s been placed between Sendhil Ramamurthy and Dennis Haysbert.  Sarah Shahi’s pose shows what the previously released, rather awkward looking artwork was based on.

To the right is a clipped section from one of the poster versions showing Kathryn in much greater detail.  Lovely.

Both versions are now in the KM UK Gallery, along with a couple of obscure on set images I added yesterday.

It is good to see the publicity for Reverie is stepping up.

Reverie Pilot Screening & Panel @ NY Comic Con

artwork_002In New York on Saturday 7th October 2017?

Want to see an exclusive screening of NBC’s new virtual reality-themed drama series Reverie?

If you’ve managed to answer Yes to both the questions above then I have some good news for you

The Sarah Shahi (Person Of Interest), Jessica Lu (Awkward.), Sendhil Ramamurthy (Heroes), Dennis Haysbert (24), and, of course, Kathryn-starring show pilot will be shown at the New York Comic Con this weekend.

The fan-service convention opens just at lunchtime on Thursday (5th Oct) and continues until late Sunday afternoon.  Amongst other elements there are over 40 screenings and discussion panels covering a range of movies and TV shows.  The X-Files, the new Pacific Rim film sequel, Dr Who, Robot Chicken, Star Trek: Discovery, Black Mirror, The Gifted and many, many more. Lots of stars and creators will be attending to talk about their new project.

The Reverie screening of the first episode, months ahead of the planned series broadcast starting, includes a panel discussion with cast and crew.  It starts at 4:15pm in room 1A10 of the Javits Center, Hells Kitchen, New York City. Creator/writer/producer Mickey Fisher (Extant) will certainly be there.  The main cast members are also expected.  From what I’ve seen, Kathryn could well be amongst them.

We look forward to finding out.

More details of the whole event can be found on the New York Comic Con website HERE.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – September 2017

The nights are starting to draw in.  Summer is definitely over.  Instead of running about outside settle in and read about the continuing careers of the Cold Case cast that aren’t Kathryn in September 2017’s Cold Case Cast Catch-up.

In the August CCCC-up I mentioned Jeremy Ratchford (Nick Vera in CC) appearing in a short film called Radio 88.  We had hint that the film would be premièred in mid-September at a film festival.  That may or may not have been correct.  However, on the 18th of September the 11 minute film was made available on YouTube as part of a promotion for a new very high definition Panasonic camera.  You can watch it in full HERE.  The cinematographer/producer Johnny Derango (Small Time Crime also starring Jeremy) is key to the film, hence the link to the camera equipment.  The story involves a young woman (Cyrina Fiallo, Temporary) making the final broadcast of a small radio station created by her father (Jeremy) and an equally young English man (Paul Holowaty, Hollyoaks) trying to see her again and get his record played.

It is not a promotion for a European hatchback car, it’s a movie by James Gray (Lost City Of Z) and it stars John Finn (John Stillman in CC).  The Brad Pitt (Lost City Of Z) starring sci-fi epic Ad Astra has been given a release date.  You’ve got plenty of time to save your pennies for a cinema ticket because that date, in the US at least, is the 11th of January 2019.  That makes it a futuristic film, I guess :-)  Brad (we’re on first name terms) plays an Army Corps engineer looking for his long-missing father.  Mr Tommy Lee Jones (Men In Black) is the man lost on an mission to find aliens 20 years previously.  Ruth Negga (Preacher), Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games), and Jamie Kennedy (The Hunger Games) also star.  James Gray is directing and co-wrote the feature.

Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC) made her promised return as Monica Walker in Criminal Minds just a few days ago now.  It sounds like it might have been a really emotional one.  In the previous season finale Tracie starred as the wife of one of the main characters.  The dropping of that actor from the show meant he wasn’t going to be coming back.  This première episode of the 13th season dealt with that.  As we know a character key in a major plot development in a top rated TV show is not enough for Tracie.  That’s a Wednesday for constantly working Tracie.  Next up is another short film.  This one is called Top Ramen, a 20 minute drama about two girls forced to look after themselves when their mother (presumably Tracie) is arrested at a protest demonstration.  Long-time TV producer, mostly of reality shows like Hell’s Kitchen, Rebecca Hertz is making her directing debut with Top Ramen.  No news on a release yet.  If that wasn’t enough Tracie spent a couple of days at Dartmouth to star in a performance of Antigone In Ferguson.  The piece is a series of dramatic readings and gospel songs about the shooting by police in Ferguson, Missouri of Michael Brown in 2014.  The text is from the original 2,500 year old tragedy Antigone by Sophocles, which has plenty of parallels with more recent events.  Tracie spent time with students at Dartmouth College after performing.  Of course that is not enough for Tracie, oh no.  A YouTube video of Tracie and others performing a cover of the P!nk (is that right?) song Dear Mr President was posted the other day.  You can watch it HERE.

Cold Case Is 14 Today

CC_Titles_16Yes!  Nailed it!  I’ve remembered and got the right date for the first time in a few years.

The 28th of September is one of those key dates in the KM UK calendar.  In 2003 it was first time the world got to Look Again.  The first episode of Cold Case premièred that Sunday night on the CBS network in America.

Happy Birthday Cold Case.

The basic formula of investigating old unsolved cases was set from the beginning, but the Cold Case greatly expanded the flashback elements as that initial season progressed.  They became key to what made the show different from other procedurals, and no doubt added greatly to the cost and complexity of making each episode.  Two actors were often used to play the same character at different ages, and the sets needed to be changed to match the time periods too.

One significant change in the early season was the departure of actor Justin Chambers.  Justin played Chris Lassing, the detective paired with Kathryn’s Lilly Rush.  He only appeared in three of the first four episodes (Look Again, Gleen, and Churchgoing People).  The order the episodes were filmed may have been different from the order they were broadcast, explaining Justin’s absence from number three.  Justin went on to become a lead character in Grey’s Anatomy.  The hospital drama returns to TV tonight to start its 14th season.  In the coming months Justin will be celebrating his 300th episode of Grey’s.  One hundred times more than he did on Cold Case!  That’s quite a milestone.

Danny Pino as Scotty Valens was brought in as Lilly’s cop partner from episode five, so the decision to change was likely taken before Look Again first aired.  Danny remained for the rest of the show’s seven season run.

With all the remakes and ‘re-imaging’ going on in Hollywood these days it is surely time to get the old gang back together again (as I pondered HERE in July) or for a Cold Case: The Next Generation?
