nielsen finally tracked me down and are sending a meter thingamabobber,
relatedly, something I only recently became aware of: you won't find any of the Harry Potter films on HBO Max, because NBCU has the TV rights to the entire franchise through 2025. Sure, some of Disney's content is tied up too - you won't find Black Panther, Infinity War, or Incredibles 2 on Disney+ at launch, because of their Netflix deal, but my understanding is that most or all of those deals will expire fairly early in Disney+'s lifespan.
Pretty sure the HP films were being aired on FX and Sci-Fi...relatedly, something I only recently became aware of: you won't find any of the Harry Potter films on HBO Max, because NBCU has the TV rights to the entire franchise through 2025.

So much TV news this week.Showtime has given a series commitment to an untitled musical drama executive produced by multiple Grammy winner Alicia Keys and the Oscar, Tony and Grammy winning team of Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen, The Greatest Showman). Pasek and Paul also will contribute music to the series, produced by Fox 21 Television Studios (Homeland, The Chi). Kyle Jarrow (SpongeBob SquarePants musical) will write the series and executive produce with Oscar-nominated producer Marc Platt (Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert, The Band’s Visit, La La Land), Emmy winner R.J. Cutler (Nashville, American High), and Emmy winner Adam Siegel (Grease: Live!)
The as-yet untitled series traverses generations to tell an emotionally complex family story that interweaves modern-day and 1959 Detroit, centering on a mystery uncovered by a young musician who moves back to her childhood home.
this makes a lot of sense considering Man in the High Castle is rife with dark, dreary visuals and goofy sci-fi
Thank God. That storyline was just creepy.

Paging torre_avenueUnder the pact, the comic book and TV writer will adapt some of his beloved titles and develop originals for the studio.
Legendary Television has signed another top comic creator to an overall deal.

Under the pact, Brubaker will adapt and collaborate with other TV creators to bring some of his most iconic creator-owned properties to television.
The deal marks the latest TV gig for Brubaker, who served as a supervising producer on HBO's Westworld and worked with Nicolas Winding Refn on Amazon's upcoming Too Old to Die Young series. He is best known for his comic crime sagas like Criminal, Incognito, Fatale, The Fade Out and Kill or Be Killed, which have sold millions of copies internationally. Brubaker has earned Eisner and Harvey Awards for best writer an impressive five times. While working for DC Comics, he revamped Catwoman.
Now that's what I'm talking about. I have a strong feeling that Esmail is gonna stick the landing hard and it's going to blow the other seasons out of the water. Having Fernando back is definitely going to make things very interesting too. Can't wait
