First Look Teaser for Netflix's 'Florida Man' Series with Edgar Ramírez
"I have to go to Florida… so I can leave Florida." They've finally gone and did it! They made a series based on the "Florida Man" meme. Of course they did. Netflix has revealed the first look teaser for the series titled, simply, Florida Man. It's not a documentary series, it's a fictional (or is it??) drama limited sereis starring Edgar Ramírez. When a struggling ex-cop is forced to return to his home state of Florida to find a Philly mobster’s runaway girlfriend, what should be a quick gig becomes a wildly spiraling journey into digging up buried family secrets, and an increasingly futile attempt to do the right thing in a place where so much is wrong. The show is "a wild odyssey into a sunny place for shady people." Sounds about right. The cast also includes Abbey Lee, Anthony LaPaglia, Otmara Marrero, Lex Scott Davis, Emory Cohen, Clark Gregg, Isaiah Johnson, Paul Schneider, & Lauren Buglioli. Huh. This doesn't seem as amusing or as bizarre as it should, much more of an intense thriller about how wacky and weird and screwed up Florida is.
Fun Full Trailer for 'Agent Elvis' Animated Series with McConaughey
"It's groovy, dontcha think?" Netflix has debuted the explosive full trailer for Agent Elvis, the animated series about Elvis as a secret agent. Right in time for Baz Luhrmann's Elvis to win awards at the Oscars?? In this series, Elvis Presley trades in his white jumpsuit for a jet pack when he is covertly inducted into a secret government spy program to help battle the dark forces that threaten the country he loves -- all while holding down his day job as the King of Rock 'n Roll. Academy Award-winner Matthew McConaughey stars as the voice of "Agent Elvis", with a voice cast including Kaitlin Olson, Johnny Knoxville, Niecy Nash, Tom Kenny, Don Cheadle, Priscilla Presley, Jason Mantzoukas, Asif Ali, Ed Helms, Christina Hendricks, Kieran Culkin, Fred Armisen, and many more. Robert Valley created the character designs, and Agent Elvis' wardrobe was designed by John Varvatos. With music by Tyler Bates and Timothy Williams. It was animated by the studio Titmouse in Vancouver. The style still reminds me of Archer or Clone High, but with a few different twists. This seems like a blast!! Totally ridiculous, though in an entirely entertaining way. I'm in! What about you?
First Look Teaser for 'Fatal Attraction' Remake Starring Lizzy Caplan
"So what do you think would happen?" Paramount has revealed a first look teaser for a streaming version of Fatal Attraction, out to watch at the end of April. Described as a "fresh take" on the 1987 erotic thriller film of the same name that starred Michael Douglas and Glenn Close. “In the film, Alex is the villain of the story, and Dan is the hero and there is no gray area,” Caplan states. "Now, audiences have changed so much, we are no longer primed to believe in this villainous woman story. She's clearly mentally ill and that's not something that is really touched upon at all in the movie." This new version is a "deep-dive" reimagining of the classic 80's thriller, exploring the timeless themes of marriage and infidelity through the lens of modern attitudes toward strong women, personality disorders and coercive control. Joshua Jackson and Lizzy Caplan star in Fatal Attraction, along with Amanda Peet, Alyssa Jirrels, Toby Huss, Reno Wilson, Brian Goodman, Wanda De Jesus, and Jessica Harper. This teaser has some sultry shots in it, along with Dead Ringers it seems like another enticing update on a film from the 80s that will get your attention.
First Look Teaser for 'Dead Ringers' with Rachel Weisz & Rachel Weisz
"Ladies in red." Amazon has revealed a first look teaser for Dead Ringers, a series based on the 1988 film of the same name by David Cronenberg. Yes, another TV adaptation / remake of a classic movie from the past! They're going to get through every last one of these before they stop making them. The Mantle twins, identical from head to toe, are on a mission to change the way women give birth, starting in Manhattan. The original film's synopsis is pretty much the same: twin gynecologists (originally played by Jeremy Irons) take full advantage of the fact that nobody can tell them apart, until their relationship begins to deteriorate over a woman. This time, Rachel Weisz stars in both lead roles, as Elliot and Beverly Mantle. The series cast also includes Michael Chernus as Tom, Poppy Liu as Greta, plus Britne Oldford, Jeremy Shamos, Jennifer Ehle, and Emily Meade. There's not much to this first look, just 30 seconds of footage, but it is enough to whet our appetite for more. We'll definitely be keeping an eye on this series… Take a peek below.

First Trailer for Musical Romantic Comedy 'Up Here' w/ Mae Whitman
"This isn't your life, this is my life!" Hulu has revealed an official trailer for a new musical series titled Up Here, arriving for streaming in March in just a few weeks. Who's ready for some more singing and dancing in New York City?! Ditch the noise and listen to your heart.

Set at the end of the 90s, the series follows the extraordinary story of one ordinary couple, as they fall in love and discover that the single greatest obstacle to finding happiness together might just be themselves.

Announcement Teaser for 'FUBAR' Starring Arnold Schwarzenegger
"I'm back, baby." Netflix has revealed a first look teaser for a series called FUBAR, a spy comedy thriller from TV creator Nick Santora (of "Prison Break", "Scorpion", Reacher"). So THIS is pretty much Arnold's continuation of Cameron's True Lies, even though they already made a True Lies sequel series (this one) and apparently it's no good. FUBAR is a global spy adventure with a father and daughter at the center of the story. Schwarzenegger explains: "Everywhere I go, people ask me when I’m going to do another big action comedy like True Lies. Well, here it is. FUBAR will kick your ass and make you laugh - and not just for two hours. You get a whole season." Sounds good, I guess? We'll find out soon enough. FUBAR stars Arnold, along with Monica Barbaro, Milan Carter, Gabriel Luna, Fortune Feimster, Travis Van Winkle, Fabiana Udenio, Barbara Eve Harris, Aparna Brielle, Andy Buckley, and Jay Baruchel. Not sure if this will be any good, but I'm curious. Though it does still have that TV gloss. Stay tuned for more footage.

Freaky Full Trailer Drops for Pop Star Obsession Horror Series 'Swarm'
"They are not your friends… Those are some crazy ass fans." Amazon has unveiled the main official trailer for a disquieting horror thriller series titled Swarm, an anti-hero tale of a woman obsessed with a pop star. They've been keeping the plot of this a big secret, with the creators Donald Glover and Janine Nabers saying it's inspired by Haneke's Piano Teacher and The King of Comedy (which is quite enticing). Swarm follows a young woman named Dre, played by Dominique Fishback, whose extreme obsession with a pop star takes a "dark turn". That's all they offer up so far but from this trailer it seems she goes over the deep end - murdering someone. For money? For more fame? Out of anger? The series also stars Chloe Bailey, Damson Idris, Leon, Rory Culkin, and Karen Rodriguez. It's clearly commentary on being infatuated with Beyonce, and about how celebrity obsession turns people into psychopaths. Which is refreshing to see in a time when few are bold enough to say something like this. Thank goodness for Donald Glover's genius.

FX Networks has revealed their full trailer for the 2023 adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic Great Expectations, a mini-series arriving for streaming this March.

Nature Fights Back in Eco-Thriller Series 'The Swarm' Official Trailer
"The idea of not being alone is… strangely comforting." ZDF Studios has unveiled an official trailer for a sci-fi streaming series from Germany titled The Swarm, also known as Der Schwarm. This is premiering at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival in their new "Berlinale Series" section, streaming this March in Germany. Still no info for the US. This eco thriller is based on a novel and is an international co-production, with all of the dialogue in English. Intro from the book: Whales begin sinking ships. Toxic, eyeless crabs poison Long Island's water supply. The North Sea shelf collapses, killing thousands in Europe. Around the world, people are beginning to feel the effects of the ocean's revenge as the seas and their inhabitants begin a "violent revolution" against mankind. At stake is the survival of the Earth's very fragile ecology—and ultimately, the survival of humanity. The series writers/directors "have created a world-encompassing mystery series that is more than just a spectacularly illustrated thought experiment." Starring Cécile de France, Alexander Karim, Leonie Benesch, Joshua Odjick, Takuya Kimura, and others. It looks pretty cool - and scary.
