Star of the 1994 flick “Four Weddings and a Funeral” Andie MacDowell is set to star on the upcoming limited TV series, scheduled on Hulu. The series is inspired by the classic film, and is being written and exec produced by Mindy Kaling and Matt Warburton.

MacDowell will play a different character to that of her’s in the film, and Nathalie Emmanuel has been cast as the lead. Other cast include new additions Brandon Mychal Smith, Zoe Boyle, Jennie Jacques, Harish Patel, and Guz Khan, and previously cast Nikesh Patel, Rebecca Rittenhouse and John Reynolds.

According to Deadline, the series revolves around four American friends — Maya (Emmanuel), Craig (Smith), Ainsley (Rittenhouse) and Duffy (Reynolds) — who reunite for a fabulous London wedding. But after a bombshell at the altar throws their lives into turmoil, they must weather a tumultuous year of romance and heartbreak. Relationships are forged and broken, political scandals exposed, London social life lampooned, love affairs ignited and doused, and of course, there are four weddings… and a funeral. MacDowell will play Mrs. Howard, Ainsley’s (Rittenhouse) mother. Boyle will play Gemma, Jacques has been cast as Zara, Patel will play Haroon, and Khan will be Basheer.

“Four Weddings and a Funeral” will head into production shortly, for a 2019 debut.

Actor Breckin Meyer, appearing at this past weekend’s “Clueless” reunion panel at C2E2, told attendees that he’d spoken to Netflix about a spin-off of 2001 comedy “Josie and the Pussycats”.

The actor confirmed that he, co-star Seth Green and the film’s directors, Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan (also Meyer’s ex-wife), pitched the streamer a mockumentary that would’ve featured the fictional boy band ‘Du Jour’ from the movie.

You’ll recall, Meyer and Green played members of the pop group, alongside Donald Faison (also on the “Clueless” panel) and Alexander Martin.

“It was right when the Backstreet Boys were doing their big comeback – so we tried that, but it didn’t take” says Meyer, also an accomplished writer, whose credits include “Star Wars Detours”, “Robot Chicken” and “Men at Work”.

Can we please revisit the idea, Netflix!?

“Thor Ragnarok” helmer Taika Waititi recently shot an episode of Disney Plus’s “The Mandalorian” – the live-action “Star Wars” TV series that will feature, among others, fan-fave Boba Fett – and now it’s being revealed he’s also playing a character in it.

Showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau (“Iron Man”) has posted a behind-the-scenes pic on Instagram of the beloved filmmaker recording his voice for the part of bounty hunter IG-88. The droid character is best known for his appearance in “The Empire Strikes Back” but he didn’t speak in his brief moments on screen.

Waititi, you may recall, also voiced a part in “Thor Ragnarok” – that of amiable Kiwi rock-guy Korg.

“The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.

Executive producers Robert Singer and Andrew Dabb also confirmed the end of the long-running CW drama.

“Firstly, we would like to thank all the people who have been involved with the show both in front of and behind the camera,” the duo wrote in a statement published by THR. “For us it has been an experience of a lifetime.”

“The support we have had from both Warner Bros Television and The CW has been incredible,” Singer and Dabb continued. “We’d like to give special thanks to Jensen, Jared and Misha for making this journey so special. It is now most important to us to give these characters that we love the sendoff they deserve.”

“Supernatural”, which first aired on The WB in 2005, is the long-running sci-fi/genre series in American broadcast television history.

The CW has attempted to launch a couple of “Supernatural” spin-offs over the years but CW president Mark Pedowitz has since said he’s given up on that idea, convinced the spin-offs never came together because they’re lacking the magical ingredient : Ackles and Padalecki.

The fifteenth episode of the series airs later this year.

The CW are now looking to a wave of new shows to help fill the void left by “Supernatural” and “Jane the Virgin”, which is also concluding, with punters sugegsting the new “Lost Boys” TV series, a “Nancy Drew” reboot and “Batwoman” starring Ruby Rose will be the net’s next-big-things.
