“Save the cheerleader, save the world.”

In 2006, it was nearly impossible to be a fan of television and not know HEROES. The sci-fi drama about ordinary people discovering they had extraordinary abilities was arguably the biggest show of the year, as fans obsessed over whether the rag-tag group of new heroes could defeat supervillain Sylar (Zachary Quinto).

Now, new—and old—fans can experience it again, as the four seasons of the original series are streaming on Peacock. (2015 revival HEROES REBORN isn’t currently included.)

“It was one of the best pilots I’ve ever read,” Ali Larter, who portrayed Niki, Jessica, and Tracy, recalls. “Tim Kring wrote it, and when we came together, David Semel, who was our director, had an extraordinary vision for that show. When I think about all all the pieces it takes to really come together and make something that is so special, and connect with an audience the way that it did, I just feel really proud and grateful.”

Here, Larter looks back at her time on the show, and reflects on why it may be the best binge watch for 2020… Read more

Peacock Battlestar Galactica Reboot

NBCUniversal has revealed plans for its new streaming service, which it intends to call Peacock.

The platform, which will be available in both a subscription or ad-free model, will launch in April 2020. NBCUniversal says they’ll have over 15,000 hours of content at launch.

“The name Peacock pays homage to the quality content that audiences have come to expect from NBCUniversal – whether it’s culture-defining dramas from innovative creators like Sam Esmail, laugh-out-loud comedies from legends like Lorne Michaels and Mike Schur, blockbusters from Universal Pictures, or buzzy unscripted programming from the people who do it best at Bravo and E!,” said Bonnie Hammer, Chairman of Direct-to-Consumer and Digital Enterprises, in a statement. “Peacock will be the go-to place for both the timely and timeless – from can’t-miss Olympic moments and the 2020 election, to classic fan favorites like THE OFFICE.”

Here’s what they have on tap, including another reboot of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, SAVED BY THE BELL and PUNKY BREWSTER revivals, a new season of A.P. BIO, the second PSYCH movie, and more… Read more
