Come Wednesday, March 7 on SundanceTV, Hap and Leonard season 3 will officially arrive! This season is subtitled “The Two-Bear Mambo,” and it is going to serve both as further exploration into the Hap and Leonard friendship as well as a reflection on modern-day issues. Over the course of this season you will see the title characters head to Grovetown, a place riddled with racism and the Ku Klux Klan. What they run into there will be so much more than either one of them ever bargained for.
In leading up to the start of the new season we were fortunate enough, for the second straight season, to do an interview with James Purefoy discussing some of what appeals to him about this season, the topical nature of the story, and also how he would prefer to film the next season of the series if given an opportunity.

Women don’t fare well in Netflix’s Altered Carbon.
The series, a loud, visually stunning sci-fi set in a distant future where human consciousness can be transferred between bodies, sees the female form brutally beaten, maimed and laid bare as par for the course. The early reviews haven’t been kind:

Posted on Feb 3rd, 2018 in InterviewNews | Comments Off on James Purefoy calls ‘Altered Carbon’ ‘a warning to us in the present’
Feb. 2 (UPI) — The Following alum James Purefoy says his new dystopian drama Altered Carbon is “a warning to us in the present.”
Now streaming on Netflix, the 10-part adaptation of Richard K. Morgan’s novel is about a futuristic society in which human consciousness may be transferred between bodies, meaning the wealthy can essentially live forever by adopting another “sleeve” when the old one wears out. The series co-stars Renee Elise Goldsberry, Will Yun Lee, Martha Higareda and Ato Essandoh.
Asked by UPI at a roundtable interview Tuesday with reporters what appealed to him about telling this story, Purefoy replied: “I think working on anything where you are talking about a dystopian future on a show, which is very clearly a warning to us in the present. Read the rest of this entry »

‘Altered Carbon’ Premiere Date & Teaser: Futuristic Netflix Drama Stars Joel Kinnaman
Posted on Dec 6th, 2017 in News | Comments Off on ‘Altered Carbon’ Premiere Date & Teaser: Futuristic Netflix Drama Stars Joel Kinnaman
“Live forever, in the body you deserve.” Netflix has set a premiere date for Altered Carbon, its futuristic sci-fi series based on Richard K. Morgan’s cyberpunk novel. The series from Skydance Television starts streaming Friday, February 2. Check out a new teaser above that plays as an ad for Psychasec, the company behind the body transfers.
The Killing alum Jeol Kinnaman stars as Takeshi Kovacs, a former elite interstellar warrior known as an Envoy who has been imprisoned for 300 years and is downloaded into a future he’d tried to stop. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitized, human bodies are interchangeable, and death is no longer permanent. Kovacs is the lone surviving Envoy after they were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned, “on ice”, for centuries until Laurens Bancroft (James Purefoy), an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder — that of Bancroft himself.
Martha Higareda also stars as Kristin Ortega, a smart and tough lieutenant in the Bay City PD who is following in the footsteps of her father, a cop who died heroically in the line of duty.
Miguel Sapochnik (Game of Thrones) directed the first episode. Skydance’s David Ellison, Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross executive produce alongside Steve Blackman and Kalogridis’ Mythology Entertainment partners Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt.
