BBC AMERICA announced today the start of production on Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.
Penned by Max Landis and from the producers of The Walking Dead, the series is a comedic thriller that follows the bizarre adventures of eccentric “holistic” detective Dirk Gently (Samuel Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Elijah Wood). The series is an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ (Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy) wildly successful comic novels, Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, and is set in the unexpected world of the hyper, absurd, eponymous detective.
This season, Dirk and Todd wind their way through one big, seemingly insane mystery, crossing unlikely paths with a bevy of wild and sometimes dangerous characters, each episode landing them a few random steps closer to uncovering the truth.
Oscar-winning director Dean Parisot will direct the series’ first two episodes.
Robbie Coltrane and Julie Walters lead cast of Channel 4’s ‘National Treasure’
“A timely exploration of truth, memory, trust and family,” National Treasure will examine “the impact, both public and private, of accusations of historic sexual offences against a fictional much-loved public figure.”
National Treasure, written by Bafta winner Jack Thorne, features ageing comic facing police investigation into accusation of rape in 1970s
Coltrane will play Paul Finchley, one half of a much-loved comedy double act – a cherished household name with a career that spans several decades. He’s not quite as successful as he once was, but nevertheless he’s frequently recognised on the street, affectionately called upon by taxi drivers to repeat his famous catchphrase and is a familiar face in the TV schedules. He’s a bona fide national treasure. But, in the face of accusations of historic sexual offences from the 1990s, the life of this adored comedian begins to unravel.
The Harry Potter actor will be joined by Julie Walters (Indian Summers) as Paul’s wife, Marie, and Andrea Riseborough (Birdman) as their daughter, Dee, who is a recovering addict.
Directed by Marc Munden.

"The Girl with All the Gifts"
Being mixed in Berlin as we speak, Cristo's latest score can be heard in theatres later this year; his first feature film, the sci-fi thriller "The Girl with All the Gifts" is directed by Colm McCarthy, starring Glenn Close, Gemma Arterton, Paddy Considine and introducing the wonderful Sennia Nanua.
The screenplay was adapted by the author of the critically acclaimed novel himself, Mike Carey. Produced by Camille Gatin and Angus Lamont, Company credits include Poison Chef, Altitude Films and Warner Bros. UK as distributor.
Yes, eventually we will produce a full soundtrack album!
Il n’y a rien comme Série noire. Bien sûr, la série se nourrit de références et d’une culture riche qui la rend plus forte, mais que ce soit au Québec ou la télévision en général, c’est une audace qui a son propre souffle et, simplement parce qu’on a voulu pousser le tout encore plus loin dans sa deuxième saison, cela devrait être une raison amplement suffisante pour ne manquer sous aucun prétexte la suite de ces indescriptibles aventures.
