“Solo” star Alden Ehrenreich is headed to TV, leading the cast of “Brave a New World”, an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Aldous Huxley.

Originally set up at SyFy, the series has snagged a straight-to-series pickup at USA Network, where it’s rumored to be premiering on the NBCU streaming platform in 2020.

Produced by Amblin, the series imagines a utopian society that has achieved peace and stability through the prohibition of monogamy, privacy, money, family, and history itself.

As citizens of New London, Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne have only ever known a rigid social order, a perfect pharmaceutical called Soma, and a culture of instant gratification and ubiquitous sex. Curious to explore life beyond the strictures of their society, the two New Worlders embark on a vacation to the Savage Lands, where they become embroiled in a harrowing and violent rebellion. Bernard and Lenina are rescued by John the Savage (Ehrenreich), who escapes with them back to New London.

The arrival of John, a subversive outsider, in the New World, threatens to disrupt the stability of New London’s utopian society.

Owen Harris will direct the first episode and executive produce the series, which has been written by David Wiener, Grant Morrison and Brian Taylor.

Arrow

With the reappearance of The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) in the season seven finale of Arrow, there’s no doubt that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Team Arrow will be facing a “crisis” unlike anything they’ve previously faced before. Cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television’s hit DC series elaborated on what’s in store for the future in Arrow’s final season Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 20.

Following last season’s introduction of next-gen vigilantes Mia Smoak and Connor Hawke, Comic-Con fans were excited to learn of John Diggle’s other son, John Diggle, Jr., to be played by new series regular Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll). Diggle, Jr. – known as J.J. – is the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson). We meet J.J. in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor.

Barnett joins previously announced new series regulars Katherine McNamara, Joseph David-Jones and Ben Lewis as Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke and Oliver Queen’s adopted son, William Clayton, respectively.

The Rocketeer

A new comedic, animated adventure series “The Rocketeer” – inspired by Dave Stevens’ beloved superhero comic books and Walt Disney Pictures feature film – follows Kit Secord after she learns she’s secretly next in line to become The Rocketeer, a rocket-pack wearing superhero who can fly. The series will debut on Disney Channel and Disney Junior this fall with actor Billy Campbell, who starred as Cliff Secord in “The Rocketeer” film, as the voice of Dave Secord, Kit’s father. Kathy Najimy (“Hocus Pocus”) will voice Kit’s mother, Sareena Secord, and Kitana Turnbull (“A Series of Unfortunate Events”) stars as Kit. The news was announced today during Disney Television Animation’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con International.

Armed with her cool new gear and secret identity, Kit takes to the skies to protect her town of Hughesville and its residents from danger. Assisting her on her heroic adventures are her best friend Tesh, bulldog sidekick Butch, and airplane mechanic grandfather, Ambrose Secord.

Of joining the cast, Campbell said “This is my first voice-acting job ever and I’m thrilled that it’s for ‘The Rocketeer.’ This has been a really nice full-circle moment for me and I’m looking forward to introducing a new generation of kids, including my own, to the Rocketeer’s stories.”

Additional casting announced today includes legendary voice actor Frank Welker (“Scooby-Doo”) as Grandpa Ambrose and Butch the bulldog; Callan Farris (Disney Channel’s upcoming “Gabby Duran & The Unsittables”) as Kit’s best friend, Tesh; and Navia Robinson (Disney Channel’s “Raven’s Home”) as Kit’s flight school classmate, Valerie Valkyrie. Voicing the recurring comedic villains in the series are Maria Bamford (“Arrested Development”) and Kari Wahlgren (“DC Superhero Girls”) as sister team, Laura and Harley; Maurice LaMarche (“Futurama”) as Sylvester Slapdash; Charlie Adler (“The Transformers” franchise) and Parvesh Cheena (Disney Junior’s upcoming “Mira, Royal Detective”) as The Great Orsino and Deany, respectively; and celebrity chef Ted Allen (“Chopped”) as Cast-Iron Chef.

Exclusive : The Flash’s Harrison Wells as an Aussie?

Cavanagh on the version of Wells we’ll see in season 6

Tom Cavanagh – the scene-stealing, dynamite performer who plays many incarnations of Dr Harrison Wells on TV’s “The Flash” – tells Moviehole that this season’s version of Wells was nearly an Australian.

“He was almost an Aussie. We played with that idea. I love Australia and I’d love to do that version. We ended up going with something different — but we were very close to making him Australian. I think it’s possible a future version will indeed be from Down Under.”

Cavanagh, who said a big appeal for him in doing the show is playing the many versions of Wells each season, said the version of the character we’ll see this year isn’t someone we’ve seen before.

“It’s a new character. You’re going to really, really dig it.”

“The Flash” returns for its 6th season on The CW in October.
