ENGLISH TRAILER FOR LAVISH 'MAGNIFICENT CENTURY: KOSEM SULTANA' EPIC TV SERIES! BBC TO TURN 'HIS DARK MATERIALS' EPIC NOVELS INTO TV SAGA! SYFY ORDERS FEMALE LEAD VAN HELSING' EPIC SERIES!

'HIS DARK MATERIALS
EPIC FANTASY NOVELS TO BECOME BBC MINI SERIES 
TV news today, starting with the super exciting ones coming from BBC who will turn Philip Pullman's epic fantasy novels HIS DARK MATERIALS into TV series. The story, already adapted into GOLDEN COMPASS movie eight years ago, follows two children, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they travel through various parallel universes and meet a host of fantastical creatures including witches and armoured polar bears.
'VAN HELSING' SYFY SERIES
Meanwhile, after closing down DOMINION and DEFIANCE, SyFy will fill the empty space with new VAN HELSING series! Coming from Neil LaBute, the story will, unlike the brilliant movie with Hugh Jackman, have a female hero! It will be told from the point of view of Dr Abraham Van Helsing's daughter Vanessa Helsing, who is resurrected five years into the future after a long sleep in the world that has been overrun by vampires, leaving Vanessa Helsing as the last hope for humanity's survival. The 13 episodes will be filmed in Canada to air Fall 2016!

'KOSEM SULTANA' 
STUNNING NEW ENGLISH TRAILER
After showing you a number of Turkish language teasers for Star TV and Tims Production's incredibly lavish epic series MAGNIFICENT CENTURY: KOSEM I finally have for you an exciting new trailer for it with English subtitles! Check it out below together with some new
photos depicting some of the characters that will appear in the ambitious historical saga following the life of Sultana Kosem, one of the key figures in the so called Sultanate of Women, a period in Ottoman history during which ladies were ruling the empire. Great excitement and anticipation surrounds the airing of the first episode which is scheduled for Thursday next week, November 12th after a very long wait!
SULTANATE OF WOMEN  
Just like the previous mega successful series on Sultana Hurrem, KOSEM will be set four generations after Suleyman's rule in Istanbul's Topkapi palace following the rise to the throne of Sultan Ahmet (Ekin Koc) with the help of his grandmother Sultana Safiye (Hulya Avsar) and his wife Sultana Kosem ( Beren Saat and Anastasia Tsilimpiou) one of the most influential woman in Ottoman history, who served as wife, mother and grandmother to four Ottoman sultans!

  1. Van Helsing photo is very Steam Punk looking. If the show is Steam Punkish, I may give it a try.

    1. I liked the movie too unlike some other people... bad casting with Kidman and Craig and godawful Eva Green, but good film especially how it spits on the church and pope :)

    1. I know now Sam Smith is, thank you very much. Man, does that song of his suck big time. I fell asleep and the movie hadn't started yet.

    2. it doesn't suck as much as Madonna's song did, but it still sucks to heavens and back.... Wait, who is Bond?

    3. True, but it sucks in a boring way. Daniel Craig is no James Bond.

    1. especially on SyFy! I'm guessing the lead in the series won't be this sexy.. SyFy prefers manly ladies :) either lesbian looking or the lil' girl types
