Showtime has released the trailer for limited series “The Loudest Voice”, starring Russell Crowe as Roger Ailes, ahead of its 6/30 premiere.

In today’s politically charged media landscape, no figure looms larger, even after his passing, than Roger Ailes, molding Fox News into a force that irrevocably changed the conversation about the highest levels of government. The Loudest Voice premieres Sunday, June 30 at 10/9c only on Showtime.

“The Loudest Voice” is based on extensive reporting by Gabriel Sherman in his bestselling book, The Loudest Voice in the Room, which included interviews with more than 600 people. In addition to Crowe, the star-studded cast also includes Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts as former Fox News anchor Gretchen Carlson, Golden Globe nominee Sienna Miller (Layer Cake) as Ailes’ wife Elizabeth, Oscar(R) nominee and Emmy(R) winner Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) as former Fox News PR chief Brian Lewis, Screen Actors Guild Award(R) nominee Simon McBurney (The Theory of Everything) as News Corp leader Rupert Murdoch, Annabelle Wallis (Peaky Blinders) as former Fox News booker Laurie Luhn and Aleksa Palladino (Boardwalk Empire) as Ailes’ longtime assistant Judy Laterza. Guest stars include Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Josh Charles (The Good Wife) as Casey Close, Gretchen Carlson’s husband and Josh Stamberg (The Affair) as former Fox executive, Bill Shine. Emmy nominee Kari Skogland (The Handmaid’s Tale) directed multiple episodes.

In today’s politically charged media landscape, no figure looms larger, even after his passing, than Roger Ailes, who molded Fox News into a force that irrevocably changed the conversation about the highest levels of government. To understand the events that led to the rise of the modern Republican party, one must understand Ailes. The upcoming limited series takes on that challenge, focusing primarily on the past decade in which Ailes arguably became the Republican Party’s de facto leader, while also touching on defining events in Ailes’ life, including his experiences with world leaders that gave birth to Ailes’ political career and the sexual harassment accusations and settlements that brought his Fox News reign to an end. The series aims to shed light on the psychology that drives the political process from the top down.

The first episode of the limited series was written by Oscar winner Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and Sherman. The project is a co-production from SHOWTIME and Blumhouse Television (Sharp Objects, The Jinx, Get Out). In addition to Crowe, McCarthy serves as executive producer with Alex Metcalf and Emmy winner Jason Blum, as well as Marci Wiseman and Jeremy Gold for Blumhouse Television, Liza Chasin of 3dot Productions and Kari Skogland.

“The Loudest Voice sarring Russell Crowe Premieres Sunday, June 30 At 10 PM ET/PT.

Comic-Con : Cobra Kai Season 3 reveals; Okinawa and more!

The producers, and cast of the series, appeared at SDCC today

At this afternoon’s panel for YouTube’s “Cobra Kai”, fan questions – not surprisingly – weighed heavily on whether or not Ali Mills, played by Elisabeth Shue in the original 1984 film, would appear in the show’s upcoming third season.

Shue hasn’t played the role of Daniel LaRusso’s love interest since John G.Avildsen’s original “Karate Kid” but her character has been referenced fairly heavily on the sequel series, which recently concluded its second season on the streamer.

While the show’s producers, along with cast members Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, refused to answer the ‘will she or won’t she?’ question, they did raise the hopes of fans with their cheeky ‘we’ll be non-comittal’ answers, even refusing to answer a question about whether or not they’ll be meeting up with Shue at Comic-Con, where she’s promoting her new series “The Boys”.

A betting man might lay down money on a Shue appearance very soon – –  it’s just possible some i’s need to be dotted and some t’s crossed before an announcement can be made though.

What the producers could confirm for season 3 was the return of Okinawa, the birth place of Pat Morita’s Mr Myiagi.

In 1986’s “The Karate Kid Part II”, Daniel LaRusso tagged along with his mentor to his home.

Daniel will return to the portal between Japan and the tropics, for a little r and r, and to help get himself back on track.

Might that mean a possible reunion between LaRusso with old flame Kumiko, played by Tamlyn Tomita?

Further ahead, there’s also the possibility we might either see – or at least hear of – Julie Pierce, the character played by Hilary Swank in “The Next Karate Kid”.

The show’s producers confirmed that Julie is indeed part of this world and hinted that we might get an update on her in the future.

As far as the producers are concerned, everything but the animated “Karate Kid” series – which they admit makes some questionable choices – is considered canon so the possibilities are rather endless.

For those anxiously awaiting a home video release of the two seasons of “Cobra Kai”, the producers suggested that things are looking good for a DVD and/or Blu-ray release in the future.

We hope to snag some cast over the weekend so we can bring you more “Cobra Kai” juice over the next week.

Ahead of Saturday’s final “Arrow” panel at San Diego Comic-Con (no dice on getting panel passes yet, so we hope we get in for you guys – ed), star Stephen Amell spoke to EW about the final ten episodes of the series as well as previewed his new emerald get-up.

“I’m very emotional and melancholy, but it’s time,” Amell, who features on the cover of the magazine in the new ‘Green Arrow’ garb he wears next season, said.  “I’m 38 years old, and I got this job when I was 30. I’d never had a job for more than a year. The fact that I’ve done this for the better part of a decade, and I’m not going to do it anymore, is a little frightening.”

And here’s a look at Oliver’s look for the final batch of eps, hitting in just under 3 months.

“Arrow” premieres Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

Eight years after the original website went dark, a new generation of New York private school teens are introduced to the social surveillance of Gossip Girl.

WarnerMedia’s proposed reboot of the popular teen drama will reportedly address just how much social media – and the landscape of New York itself – has changed in the intervening years.

To air on HBO Max, “Gossip Girl” has been commissioned straight-to-series for a 10-episode order. Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage of Fake Empire and Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo of Alloy Entertainment will produce the redo, which like the original Blake Lively-starring series is based on the book series of the same name.
