Day and Night
Netflix has acquired the Chinese series “Day and Night”, a 32-episode drama series that follows the investigation of a grisly unsolved murder. Per THR, “The police detective in charge is recused from the case when it is revealed that his twin brother is the top suspect. Spurned by the suspension, the detective then quits his job — only to be recruited by the new lead investigator as a secret consultant. The title is a reference to the dual but often uncertain identities of the two brothers — one ostensibly righteous by day, the other allegedly evil at night.” Directed by Wei Wang, the series stars Yueming Pan as both brothers.
“Red Dog” and “Hulk” star Josh Lucas has joined the cast of the Kevin Costner mini-series. Per Deadline, “Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders — land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park. It is an intense study of a violent world far from media scrutiny — where land grabs make developers billions, and politicians are bought and sold by the world’s largest oil and lumber corporations. Lucas will play the young John Dutton.” The show hails from Oscar-nominated writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan.
Bobby Cannavale (“Annie”, “Ant-Man”) has joined Julia Roberts in the new half-hour drama series “Homecoming”, which has received a two-season straight-to-series order at Amazon.
