Not many people can land a TV deal while on house arrest, but famed con artist Anna Sorokin (aka Anna Delvey) has proven that if anyone can do it, she can. Variety reports that a new unscripted series starring Sorokin called Delvey’s Dinner Club is currently in the works. The project comes courtesy of Butternut, former Food Network president Courtney White’s lifestyle and entertainment media company.

Fresh off helping Dave Bautista solve Fibonacci riddles in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Story, Jackie Hoffman, New York theater actress extraordinaire, is now lecturing the young women of Rydell High on proper behavior in Grease: Rise of the Pink Ladies. Paramount+ debuted the teaser trailer today at the show's panel at the Television Critics Association 2023 winter press tour. Hoffman's Principal McGee isn't the lead of the new series — that would be the titular Pink Ladies, Jane (Marisa Davila), Olivia (Cheyenne Isabel Wells), Cynthia (Ari Notartomaso), and Nancy (Tricia Fukuhara) — but her warning that "a girl's reputation is all that she has" certainly puts her at odds with the burgeoning bad girls of Rydell.

After The White Lotus and House of the Dragon dominated Sunday night viewing in 2022, HBO is hoping to keep its streak of appointment television going with The Last of Us. And from what we've seen of it, that seems entirely possible. Based on the acclaimed video game that’s been praised in some circles as the greatest game of all time, this adaptation comes from Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin and the video game's creative director Neil Druckmann. The series is set in the aftermath of a global apocalypse where a mutated Cordyceps fungus ravaged the world's population and turned the infected into zombie-esque hive-mind killing machines. One man is tasked with bringing a young girl across the country to safety and possibly to save humanity. The word "harrowing" is used in just about every commentary about the game, so this should be a gripping good time.
Light spoilers ahead for The Traitors on Peacock. It’s been nearly three years since Kate Chastain, Below Deck’s longtime chief stewardess, signed off the Bravo franchise, but she finally returns to television in a regular capacity in The Traitors — and how sweet a homecoming it is. As fans have come to expect from the reality star, Kate is fully uncensored in Peacock’s competition series, turning her nose up at the show’s challenges and delivering savage one-liners about the other contestants’s perceived weaknesses. But even if she quickly becomes the season’s villain, a role she embraces, it’s a gift to have Kate and her self-obsessed, give-no-f*cks energy back on our screens.
While it would be foolish to suggest we've reached the endpoint of reboot culture, HBO Max's animated series Velma at least gives the impression we're at a moment of high anxiety about how to do a reboot right. Mindy Kaling’s reimagined origin story of the Hanna-Barbera Scooby-Doo series, Velma is focused on Velma Dinkley (voiced by Kaling), the gang's bespectacled, turtleneck-sweater-clad smartypants. That’s a clever entry point for a reboot series, especially one that wants to be as comedic as this show clearly does. Her status as the least obviously campy member of the Scooby-Doo gang makes her, ironically, the best suited to a postmodern campy take on the character. And her longtime status as a queer icon offers a ton of potential in a reimagined setting. Velma was only canonically confirmed as queer in last fall's Trick or Treat, Scooby-Doo, but there's obviously a lot of ground that a show like Velma can cover. And because Kaling has so much to work with here, it's frustrating to watch the show nervously wink at its audience, assuring them that what they're watching is smarter than the IP-mining trend that birthed it. It would be a better series if it could just calm down.
In just over two minutes, the trailer for the upcoming Apple TV+ series Dear Edward makes you one solemn promise: it's going to make you cry. Apple debuted a handful of trailers at its presentation for the Television Critics Association on Wednesday, but Dear Edward definitely packed the biggest emotional wallop. Based on Ann Napolitano's best-selling novel, Dear Edward comes to Apple from Jason Katims, who previously cracked the code on delivering sentimental-yet-substantive TV with Friday Night Lights and Parenthood. And when it came to casting the show, it seems he didn't fool around, choosing to reunite with FNL star Connie Britton.
While 2022 was a banner year for prestige TV, genre releases may reign supreme in 2023. Sparking off the year is HBO's highly-anticipated video game adaptation of The Last of Us, which follows two survivors — played by Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey — of a zombie apocalypse. There are also new seasons of fan-favorite shows to look forward to, as well as the final chapter of M. Night Shyamalan's eerie horror series Servant on Apple TV+.
It is a very good time to be a fan of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the hit 2000 movie from director Ang Lee that was a crossover hit for its wuxia action and earned 10 Academy Award nominations.

If you’ve played The Last Of Us, then in some ways, you know what to expect from HBO’s high-budget adaptation. It is the future, and the world is ruined. Dormant cities lie overgrown with weeds, and rodents dart through the charred husks of automobiles. People live in militarized enclaves, in far-off communes, or else as scavengers.They were driven there because In 2003 — in this timeline — a mutant fungus spread to humans, overpowering their brains and transforming them into bloodthirsty monsters. Vegetal profusions burst from their heads. One bite from one of these bad boys and you’re headed to Team Mushroom. In the midst of this desolation, a gruff warrior named Joel is entrusted with the care of a whip-smart teenage girl who is, somehow, immune to the fungus.
