TGL Round-Up: Lucy Liu To Direct, BoJack Horseman Return Date Announced, George R.R. Martin Producing New Show
Lucy Liu will direct the first episode of Marvel’s Luke Cage series 2.
It’s not the first time the Charlie’s Angels actress has stepped behind the camera. She has already directed four episodes of her hit CBS show Elementary.
Luke Cage executive producer executive producer Jeph Loeb said of her debut, “When you’re dealing with a bulletproof man,” Loeb said, “it helps if you have a bulletproof director.”
BoJack Horseman’s fourth series will debut on Netflix on September 8th.
The animated show, which stars Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris and Alison Brie, shared the news on Twitter with the series’s main character tweeting out a picture.
Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin has signed on to produce a new show for HBO, Variety reports.
HBO is developing an adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor’s book Who Fears Death, which is about a girl named Onyesonwu—or “Who fears death?”—in a post-apocalyptic Africa who realizes she has magical powers as she grows up, which threatens the rule of a genocidal tribe that is enslaving her people.
Okorafor announced the news herself on Twitter, noting that George R.R. Martin will be an executive producer.
