A darker-than-expected take on the Archie Comics source material, Riverdale’s teasers have gone for eeriness and atmosphere, which has led to Twin Peaks comparisons aplenty. We'll be able to see if they're warranted in a fortnight or so. Riverdale is the high school story of Archie, Jughead, Veronica and the gang, starring a collection of promising newcomers. This teen drama comes written by Archie Comics’ Chief Creative Officer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and has Greg Berlanti of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl executive producing.
Starts: Thursday the 26th of January on The CW, Friday the 17th of January on Netflix UK.
Today we have our first look at Sky and Amazon’s new ten-part series Britannia. Featuring Kelly Reilly and David Morrissey the series the takes us into the dark heart of the Roman Conquest of Britain.
Written by Jez Butterworth, whose recent works include Edge of Tomorrow, Black Mass and a hand in the script for James Bond’s latest outing Spectre, the flagship series has assembled a solid cast to tell its story.
As well as being a fine looking show, there’s a great deal of mythology to dive into. Butterworth has spoken on the subject,
“Besides being hard, hard warriors, the Celts have a belief system which makes them almost invincible. It’s a deep, heavy magic. Last time the Romans tried to invade, the mighty Julius Caesar took one look, turned round and went straight home. Now, almost a century later, the Romans are back. I’m fascinated in what happens when gods die. When an entire, ancient faith stalls, topples, collapses – and a whole new one grows in its place.”
