All 10 episodes are available for streaming on Amazon. Enjoy!
Mindy is back today with a new episode, called “Hot Mess Time Machine.” Garret isn’t in it, but it’s a fun one. You can watch it here.
Elsewhere, it’s less than a month until Amazon releases the second season of Hand of God. From the press release:
Hand of God Season 2 – March 10
Created and written by Ben Watkins (Burn Notice), Hand of God returns with Golden Globe winner Ron Perlman (Sons of Anarchy), starring as Judge Pernell Harris. The hard-living, law-bending king of San Vicente, “Judge Maximum” has finally hit bottom as he faces trial for the murder of a cop. While his visions and the ghost of his dead son will slowly lead Pernell through a conspiracy that is bigger than he could have imagined, they will threaten his relationship with his wife and everything he holds dear. This season, Judge Maximum must fight on two fronts – to restore his sanity and gain his freedom. Hand of God also stars Dana Delany (Body of Proof), Garret Dillahunt (Justified) and Andre Royo (The Wire).
Garret has been cast as the lead in Monsters of God, a new pilot for TNT produced by Plan B Entertainment. It is a post-Civil War drama written by Rod Lurie (The Contender, Resurrecting the Champ, Commander in Chief), who will also direct it. A few fun details from Deadline:
In Monsters of God, written and to be directed by Lurie, savagery and violence are the cornerstones of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster (Dillahunt)’s holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local townspeople, Lancaster sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing chaos to the town of Slater.
Vicious, relentless, and a tower of a man, Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster is the newly in-charge leader at Fort Thayer, a military base in Texas that exists to make peace with the nearby Comanche tribe. A fighter for the North in the Civil War, Lancaster’s morals stopped there; he now focuses on the total extermination of the Comanche, a goal in contrast to his orders. — Deadline
Monsters of God is also the silver lining to Hand of God not getting picked up for a third season. The second and last season of that show won’t be released until 2017.
In the meantime, here is a brief synopsis for Wheelman, the Netflix movie Garret is currently filming with Frank Grillo:
Grillo plays a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race for survival after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him, and the only person he can trust is his 14-year-old daughter. — Variety
Here is a pic Grillo posted on Instagram last week:
Wheelman was written by Jeremy Rush, who is also directing.
Elsewhere, The New York Times is reporting November 11 as the release date for Come and Find Me, so we should probably start seeing and hearing more on that front soon.
COME AND FIND ME Aaron Paul (has it really been three years since “Breaking Bad” ended?) stars as a man whose wife disappears. It turns out she was living a double life, so finding her isn’t simple (or necessarily advisable). With Annabelle Wallis and Garret Dillahunt. Zack Whedon wrote and directed.
And The Mindy Project is coming back with its fifth season next week. The first of 16 episodes will be released on Hulu on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Here is a new trailer:
Amazon Prime is ramping up its original slate in a big way, picking up a whopping five primetime pilots to series: two dramas — the 1969 newsroom-set Good Girls Revolt, starring Genevieve Angelson, Chris Diamantopoulos and Jim Belushi; and political thriller Patriot, written and directed by Steven Conrad and co-starring Terry O’Quinn — and three comedies: dark comedy One Mississippi starring comedian Tig Notaro, written and executive produced by Notaro and Diablo Cody and executive produced by Louis CK; as well as Highston and Z starring Christina Ricci.
On the kids side, the streaming service has picked up Danger & Eggs, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie (26 episodes) and Niko and the Sword of Light
Additionally, freshmen Red Oaks and Hand of God will join freshly renewed The Man In the High Castle in getting second-season pickups. And kids staple Tumble Leaf will return for a third season. Additionally, I hear Amazon is extending the option on Shane Black and Fred Dekker’s Western Edge starring Max Martini. — Deadline
Congrats to the cast and crew!
