  • “Manifest”: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent, but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible. From executive producer/writer Jeff Rake, and executive producers Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke and comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.  The cast includes Melissa Roxburgh, Josh Dallas, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina and Parveen Kaur. From Compari Entertainment and Jeff Rake Productions in association with Warner Bros.

  • “The 100”: Over the last four seasons The 100 have fought to survive against unimaginable odds, only to see the world end for a second time. Season five begins six years later, with our heroes still separated: Bellamy’s team in space, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) on the ground, and hundreds trapped in the bunker below. But when a massive prison ship descends upon the last survivable place on earth, The 100 must come together to reclaim their home. As two armies converge on one valley, alliances will shift, friends will become foes, and the march to war threatens to destroy all that’s left of the human race. Can our heroes break the cycle, or is humanity doomed to repeat the past? In this epic battle for survival, one thing is certain: there are no good guys.  Based on the book series by Kass Morgan, “The 100” is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios with executive producers Jason Rothenberg, Dean White and Leslie Morgenstein (“The Vampire Diaries”).  Starring Eliza Taylor, Paige Turco, Bob Morley, Marie Avgeropoulos, Lindsey Morgan, Christopher Larkin, Richard Harmon, Tasya Teles and Henry Ian Cusick, the series airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.  Become a fan on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CWThe100, and follow the show on Twitter at @CWThe100.
  • “Freedom Fighters: The Ray”: All his life, Ray Terrill has fought injustice, dreaming of making a real difference like his older brother, a Marine who was killed in Afghanistan. One day, he stumbles upon a dying superhero from another Earth and is stunned to find that this superhero looks just like him—because it is! The dying Ray Terrill of Earth-X transfers photokinetic energy to this Earth’s Ray, making him a superhero – THE RAY. However, Ray quickly learns being a Super Hero isn’t all hanging muggers from streetlamps and fighting giant robots. As the evil Nazi New Reichsman of Earth-X, led by Overgirl, close in, The Ray must learn to harness his powers by coming to terms with his true self, even if that means also finally coming out of the closet to his parents. The fate of Earth-X depends on it!  Based on the DC characters, the animated series is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Blue Ribbon Content, Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio.  New episodes stream on CW Seed, starting July 18.

Twentieth Century Fox Partners with Tongal to Turn Alien over to Fans

“In Space, No One Can Hear You Scream” –
Twentieth Century Fox Partners with Tongal to Turn the 40th Anniversary of Alien over to the Fans

Fans to Develop Shorts Set in the Alien Universe

Los Angeles, California—June 27, 2018—Twentieth Century Fox today announced it is joining forces with Tongal, an online creator network, to launch a campaign celebrating the legacy of the Alien franchise – but this time, fans will be driving the spaceship. In honor of Alien’s 40th anniversary, Twentieth Century Fox is seeking visionary super fan filmmakers to produce shorts set after the events of the original movie.

The “by the fans, for the fans” campaign asks filmmakers to create wholly original stories that draw on the elements that makes Alien uniquely Alien—from slow atmospheric buildups to badass female protagonists to “space truckers.” As part of the campaign, six fans will have the opportunity to work under FOX mentorship to craft their shorts.

“Alien has influenced an entire generation of sci-fi and horror filmmakers with its definitive style and ‘edge-of-your-seat’ storyline. Now, we’re giving fans the chance to put their own stamp on it,” said Beth Goss, Chief Brand Officer, Twentieth Century Fox Film. “Through this partnership with Tongal, we’re thrilled to give this next generation of filmmakers the opportunity to continue the Alien story with whatever chest-bursts and facehugs they see fit.”

Starting today, fans can submit their pitches by visiting Tongal.com/Alien. From this initial pool of pitches, eighteen filmmakers will be chosen to further develop their pitch with a visual treatment, pitch video and scripts. Then, six filmmakers will be selected by Twentieth Century FOX to bring their short to life.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Twentieth Century Fox on the anniversary of such an epic franchise and bringing that opportunity to our creator community,” said James DeJulio, Co-Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Tongal. The Tongal and Fox collaboration is a bullseye for us as we continue our work to empower creators to engage current and future fans around titles like Alien.”

The “Mr. Mercedes Immersive Experience” will give fans a glimpse into the past and a peek into the future of the AT&T AUDIENCE Network original series based on the trilogy by Stephen King. Fans can be the first to play the virtual reality (VR) escape room game, “Mr. Mercedes: Lair Escape,” on the HTC Vive Pro – the next generation of VR headsets. In the “Mr. Mercedes: Finders Keepers” augmented reality (AR) adventure game, they’ll collect clues to unlock never-before-seen content and special prizes.

The “Mr. Mercedes Immersive Experience” will include:

Augmented Reality Adventure Game – Download the app to embark on an AR-driven investigation helping Detective Bill Hodges crack the case and claim a reward if you succeed.
Virtual Reality Escape Room Game – Be fully immersed in a virtual escape room inside Brady’s lair. Escape before time runs out or you’re trapped forever!
Recreating the Physical World of “Mr. Mercedes” – The show’s set designers are recreating Finders Keepers, Mercy General Hospital and Brady’s lair using actual props.
Bringing Brady to Life Through Projection Mapping – 3-D light projection will creepily bring Brady to life in his hospital bed. Is he in a coma or did you just see him move?
Lenticular Photo Experience – This photo op will transform the participant’s face into Brady’s along with a socially shareable GIF.
Private Screening Room – Media, VIP and lucky fans will get the chance to watch a sneak peek of season 2.

The series picks up a year after Brady Hartsfield’s thwarted attempt to perpetrate a second mass murder in the community of Bridgton, Ohio. Since the incident, Hartsfield has been hospitalized in a vegetative state. Retired Detective Bill Hodges has done his best to move on from his Brady obsession, teaming up with Holly Gibney to open Finders Keepers, a private investigative agency. But when unexplainable occurrences begin to affect hospital staff members attending to Brady, Hodges is haunted by the feeling that Brady is somehow responsible.
