The Hollywood Reporter broke news that HBO is teaming up with J.J. Abrams and Bad Robot for an hourlong drama series that would center on the exploration and colonization of another planet titled Glare. Javier Gullón, who penned Enemy will write the script and act as executive producer.

Four new set photos of Netflix’s Iron Fist dropped on the Marvel-loving public adding to the already fever pitch level of excitement for Netflix’s final Defenders stand alone series before the team up later in 2017.

Amazon dropped the first trailer for Z: The Beginning of Everything, the story of Zelda and F. Scott Fitzgerald to the TV watching public and it appears to be… well… something. Christina Ricci plays the famous wife and some say the more talented of the power couple.

Sherlock Season 4 on BBC and Netflix dropped a 47 second trailer complete with Toby Jones as one Culverton Smith, one of Sherlock’s greatest foes, always awkward baby interactions and Sherlock showing the love to… who?! Episodes air January 1st and the final episode will get a theatrical release.
