Showrunner Brian Young stated “I know I’m a writer, but words truly cannot describe how excited we are to be bringing Fate: The Winx Saga to life with these incredible actors.”

DAVID MAKES MAN, which stars our Jordan Bolger, premiered last night in the US.
The series, created by Oscar Winner Tarell Alvin McCraney and Produced by Oprah and Michael B Jordan, has had rave reviews, with a selection below.
“David Makes Man emerges as one of the most innovative television shows debuting this year.” New York Times
“viewers seeking a well-told story about life among economically struggling people of color, one still too rarely told, will soon enough be able to count themselves lucky too.” Variety
“its poignant humanism, a potent mixture of gritty clarity and a dreamlike nostalgia for childhood and the past, is something distinctive.” Hollywood Reporter
“Something as simple as a song on the radio can tell you that you’re not a nobody. Something as simple as a TV show can do the same thing, particularly when a character like David is still such a rarity in a universe with 500-plus scripted TV shows — and when the show is as good as David Makes Man.” Rolling Stone
“David Makes Man is a stirring portrait of Black boyhood” Time
“brought to vivid life by a strong cast and director Michael Francis Williams’ enthralling visual design. Grand, intimate, and pressing, there’s a lot to admire” IndieWire
“David Makes Man transcends expectations. It transcends genre. It just… transcends. One of the most transcendent stories on television this year.” Paste
“a gorgeous, attention-grabbing new series” TV Guide
“It’s a powerful ode to the many different types of bonds we form — with friends and family members, with teachers and classmates; even with people who are no longer here” Them
The trailer for Andrew Davies’ upcoming drama Sanditon starring our Leo Suter has been released.
Inspired by Jane Austen’s last unfinished novel, the series follows the story of Charlotte Heywood who is transported from her rural hometown of Willingden to the would-be coastal resort of Sanditon and encounters the characters whose fortunes depend on its commercial success.
Leo will be playing the series regular role of James Stringer who develops a relationship with Charlotte and plays an integral part in the construction of Sanditon.
The eight-part drama will be coming to ITV and Masterpiece PBS soon.
We are thrilled to announce that our Staz Nair has been cast as a new series regular role in the fifth season of Supergirl for CW.
Staz will play hardened reporter William Dey, an original character created for the series. On the surface, he’s a cynic and a sellout who looks down on Kara’s earnest idealism. Dey’s not interested in making friends, he just wants to get the story — but his ties to the criminal underworld could prove problematic.
Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television and based on DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.
He will make his debut during the season five premiere episode on Sunday 6th October at 9/8c on CW.
