'CHRONICLES OF NARNIA' TO GET EPIC REBOOT WITH 'THE SILVER CHAIR'! 'AZTECS' EPIC TV ADAPTATION OF DANIEL PETERS BOOK! ABC ORDERS NEW KELLY RIPA SITCOM, FOX NEW COURTNEY COX COMEDY!

'THE SILVER CHAIR' TO BE A
REBOOT OF NARNIA MOVIE SAGA
If you love legendary epic fantasy saga THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA from CS Lewis and are sad that the movie franchise ended last decade with three films, do not despair because the fourth one is coming in the future. Producer Mark Gordon has announced that it will be based on THE SILVER CHAIR book and will be a reboot - a start of a new franchise with new actors, directors and team. The story follows Dawn Treader's Eustace and his schoolmate Jill who end up in Narnia where they need to hunt down the ageing King Caspian's missing son.

'AZTECS' EPIC TV SERIES
BASED ON DANIEL PETERS' BOOK 'THE LUCK OF HUEMAC'
Speaking of book adaptations, Televisa USA will turn Daniel Peters' acclaimed book 'The Luck of Huemac' into AZTECS TV series! MARCO POLO's and BLACK SAILS' Mark Chernuchin will run the series about a family in the waning moments of a glorious but little known civilization as the Spanish invasion looms. As 'Deadline' reports the project will tackle of the subject of the pre-Columbian empire from the family’s vantage point, rather than that of Cortez and the Conquistadors. Intrigue, betrayal and romance told from the eyes of the people that built and lost this great civilization.

NEW SITCOM PILOTS FROM
KELLY RIPA, MARK CONSUELOS
Since it is the season when comedy pilots get ordered, here's the today's batch: ABC has ordered a pilot of Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos untitled multicamera sitcom about husband and wife who are trying to fend off the gentrification of their neighbourhood in Brooklyn. When each of their three daughters announce they are romantically involved with the very people who irritate the two of them so much, they are forced to finally let these people into their lives.
AND COURTNEY COX
Fox is, meanwhile, counting on Courtney Cox in a pilot for new untitled single camera sitcom in which she would play a woman who inherits her late billionaire husband’s charity and quickly finds that changing the world is far less glamorous than she had imagined.

  1. It will be interesting to see what they do with The Silver Chair. That was always one of my favorites.

  2. I agree with Debra. I turn off the TV every time I see Kelly. Oh wait, you can't see her because she's getting so skinny that she's disappearing.

    1. I haven't seen her as a host. Is she annoying?

    2. I actually like her as a host. I used to watch her all the time when she was with Regis. When he left, I lost interest though.

    3. I liked her in FAITH AND HOPE, although she was annoying in that one too :) She and Mark seem like a lovely couple, though

    4. I think why I find her so annoying is she talks about eating so much, which she obviously is not doing. Or, she's binging and purging. Her weight loss is astounding from how she used to look.

    5. or maybe Mark is keeping her fit... you did see how he looks :)

    6. Yes, I found her talking about food all the time so annoying on the show, but then she later admitted that she only ate one egg for breakfast. Who the hell survives off just one egg for breakfast?

    7. I live on a radish or a beet for breakfast with some whole wheat bread LOL But I'm a poor church mouse....

  3. I did hear about The School for Good and Evil being picked up--probably from you. I'm excited about the Narnia news. Here's hoping they do it right!

  4. Well, I think this is exciting news regarding the Silver Chair. I'd also like to see an adaptation of Lloyd Alexander's Prydain chronicles. I wonder if they ever will. I guess you would know before any of us, Dezzy so I'll keep checking back.

    1. PRYDAIN was done by Disney long time ago and wasn't successful so I'm not sure they will do it again, but you never know, we do love fairy tales and such shenanigans

  6. Heard about The Silver Chair and hope it turns out well. The Aztecs series seems quite ambitious.

  8. I think I would like the Silver Chair. Kelly Ripa sitcom - no thanks!

  9. I love Narnia. Kelly Ripa is too hyper for me, at least on her morning show. I haven't seen her acting yet.

    1. the first one was OK, the PRINCE CASPIAN was painfully boring, I remember I watched it after one of my surgeries and feeling even deeper pain than from my stitches :)

  12. With a live morning talk show all the time, I never thought Kelly Ripa had the time

    1. it is just a pilot, and if the sitcom gets ordered it usually has about ten episodes, not that much

  13. I'm super excited for Narnia! Waaah!

  14. The Courtney Cox one sounds like something she would play well. I didn't realize that Kelly Ripa actually acted though...

  15. That's very cool about Narnia! I'm looking forward to that. And like Jaclyn above me, I had no idea Kelly Ripa acted.
