Kathryn’s Start Story

StartTV_My_Start_Story_part_1_010

Sit down children, and then I’ll begin…

Remember the surprise selfies (selfi?) posted by Tracie back in March?  Well in case you don’t you can view that post HERE.  It was clear the photos had something to do with the new female-centric US television network Start TV, currently broadcasting Cold Case daily, and I hoped we would hear about it later.  That time has finally arrived.

Start TV has published Kathryn’s My Start Story article.  It details Kathryn’s early life performing in her family’s gospel group, The Morris Code, through her introduction to movies and getting the role of Lilly Rush in Cold Case.  There are quotes from Kathryn throughout and a couple of short video clips as companion items.

I urge you to read the full article HERE on the Start TV website.

Of course Tracie was there too and you can read her My Start Story HERE.

It wouldn’t be KM UK without some images and in this case we have some nice HD (720p) screencaps from the two video clips in the Gallery, and we have small versions of the videos for completeness.

Have a good weekend.

Reverie S01E07 – The Black Mandala Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e07_1080p_080So, where were we?

Oh yes, Reverie image updates as part of KM UK’s sort of annual Summer Of HD for 2019.

The last episode we looked at was number 5.  During its run in 2018, Reverie took a week off for the July 4th holiday period and Kathryn wasn’t in episode six.  All of which means we return to this after a few weeks off ourselves.

We got quite a lot of Monica Shaw in this one.  She was key to the plot after Mara (Sarah Shahi) finds a boy in a VR world who claims he is being held against his will accused of being a terrorist.  The DoD is clearly making use of the mind entering technology outside of the Onira-Tech company, without the crew’s knowledge.  Is Monica allowing this?  Can she stop it?  Does she want to?

The mandala of the title is a spiritual symbol.  The VR program uses symbols as emergency exit points if the normal methods fail.  The use of the word ‘black’ could well be a reference to secret military ‘black sites’.  Put the two together and you’ve possibly got the hint that this is a sign of the dark uses of the tech.

Nearly 130 new full HD (1080p) screencaps have been added the Gallery. And, the single promo photo (below right) we have for this episode has also been increased in size a little.

Happy 4th Of July 2019

wallpaper_111_2484x2000_smallbarbieTo Kathryn and all KM UK’s friends in the US, we say Happy 4th of July.

Congratulations to the USA on reaching another 4th of July.  I hear you having a parade this year.  Sounds like lots of fun.  Can’t believe you didn’t think of doing that at some point before in the last 243 years.  Perhaps throw in a firework or two.  But don’t actually throw them, that’s dangerous.  Keep your pets indoors too, they can get scared by all the noise.

The UK is rapidly, and by rapidly I mean mind-numbingly slowly, heading towards it own independence day.  Appropriately enough, we’re trying to make it the 31st of October, aka Halloween.  Wish us luck.  Many of would probably try and stay with you guys instead but we understand conditions are a bit cramped at the moment.

smallbarbie‘s image always forms the centrepiece of our 4th of July post.  It is just one, albeit a particular find example of, fan art created by our viewers especially for this site.  Find it and many, many other in our Fan Art Gallery. If you would like to add an image please contact me.

Cold Case Cast Catch-up – June 2019

danny_pino_002_430x180.jpgThings are heating up in the UK and they haven’t exactly gone cold in the showbiz news front either.  KM UK’s CCCC-up for June 2019 is a busy one for members of the Cold Case cast that aren’t Kathryn.

Mayans M.C. is coming back.  The spin-off from Sons Of Anarchy returns to the FX network airways on September the 3rd (a Tuesday), which is now less than 10 weeks away.  Danny Pino (Scotty Valens in CC) is set to reprise his role of Miguel Galindo.  Those attending the San Diego Comic-Con in a month’s time will be able to see a sneak peak of season two on the Sunday (21st July) afternoon.

Earlier this year Danny did a guest starring appearance (covered in December’s CCCC-up) in a couple of episodes of the Netflix show One Day At A Time.  Not long after that the series cancellation was announced.  The events were unrelated I’m sure.  In what is being described as the first case ever of a show leaving a streaming service and moving to cable television, ODAAT has been picked up by Pop TV.  The cable network has ordered a fourth season to air next year.  Netflix will still host seasons 1 to 3 but Pop will also be able to broadcast them.  In an interesting twist Pop TV is owned by the large CBS network.  This means that ODAAT season 4 will likely get a network TV showing later next year.  At this stage there is no news on whether Danny’s Tito will make a return.  We’ll take it one day at…

July 2017.  Remember then?  That was when the CCCC-up first made mention of Ad Astra.  No not a car commercial (I must have made that “joke” before!), but a sci-fi movie starring Brad Pitt (Moneyball), Tommy Lee Jones (Men in Black), Liv Tyler (Armageddon), Donald Sutherland (The Hunger Games), Ruth Negga (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) and John Finn (John Stillman in CC).  The wheels of Hollywood often turn slowly.  Two trailers for the film have been released this past month see them on YouTube HERE and HERE.  John features in both.  He’s the first voice you hear in the second clip.

Speaking of voices, the Roger Ailes bio-series The Loudest Voice is due to start today (30th June) on the Showtime network.  If the info is correct John features in the first episode.

We’ve got this far without mentioning Tracie Thoms (Kat Miller in CC).  That ends now.

In movie news Tracie is starring in a new rom-com called Back To Lyla.  The plot involves a young man setting out to find his old friends after receiving a terminal diagnosis.  As Tracie’s character is titled Dr Nolan I’m tempted to say her role is relatively small and in the first part of the film.  Hey, I can put 2 and 2 together and come up with approximately 4.  Emma Kenney (Shameless) and Hassie Harrison (Tacoma FD) star in the director America Young (Barbie Dreamhouse Adventures) directed and Guillermo Noriega (Confetti) written movie.  The project only finished filming a few weeks ago so we have no news yet on a release date.

KM UK first referenced Straight Up back in October of last year.  It’s a movie in which Tracie dons the stethoscope and white coat again, this time as Dr Larson.  James Sweeney gets all selfish by writing, directing and starring in this rom-com with Katie Findlay (The Carrie Diaries) playing the other half of the love line (it’s not a triangle).  The twist being that Todd is gay.  The film had its première last week at the Frameline Festival, which is an LGBTQ+ film festival, held in San Francisco.  It will be out Outfest in July.  No signs of a wider release date at this time.

Just occasionally we step outside the usual additional cast to look at some other key people connect with Cold Case.  One of them is Veena Sud, producer and writer on the show, who went on to do the same things on The Killing.  Veena has joined something called Quibi, a mobile video service backed by Jeff Katzenberg (DreamWorks co-founder), that has already signed-up such talents as Steven Spielberg (Jaws), Steven Soderbergh (Traffic), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), Donal Logue (Gotham), Chrissy Teigen (Hotel Transylvania 3: A Monster Vacation), Don Cheadle (House Of Lies), Emily Mortimer (Mary Poppins Returns), and Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) to make on projects.

Reverie S01E05 – Altum Somnum Full HD Screencaps

reverie_s01e05_1080p_213We don’t often blow our own trumpet here on KM UK but this has to be one the best updates we’ve had.

Episode 5 of Reverie, ‘Altum Somnum’ (which means ‘deep sleep’), brought us a significant amount of Kathryn’s Monica Shaw.  There’s been a bombing (you may recognise the building they use from a certain other show popular around these parts) and Monica wants to use the mind-entering VR tech to question a possible witness to the events who is in a coma (hence ‘deep sleep’).  During this process Monica starts to see the others as a team that can achieve much as a group, and not just individuals good at specific things.

As part of the KM UK Summer Of HD, not only do we have some, if I say so myself, some very high quality new HD (1080p) screencaps, but also vastly bigger versions of all five promo photos issued for this episode.  We’re talking quadruple the pixel count in most cases!  Rather than replace the existing photos the new ones are added as extras so you can still choose the smaller ones if that’s easier.

Over 200 new HD (1080p) screencaps are HERE and the promo photos are HERE in the KM UK Gallery.
