19 minutes ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s a reason why there’s more TV than ever: networks are spending boatloads of money.

As expected, Netflix isn’t skimping on their per-episode price tags. But it’s not just their lavish period pieces that are getting surprising amounts of funding. The report also cites a previously speculated $5 million-an-episode price for “13 Reasons Why.”

Littleton and Ryan also note that the popularity of “Stranger Things” got the show an overall per-episode cost bump from $6 million to $8 million for the series’ upcoming Season 2. When placed against other TV behemoths like “Game of Thrones,” it seems like the cost of doing business. »

Given *gestures at the shitshow of America in the last 11 months*, it’s perhaps not surprising that the last time white people went truly bugnuts crazy, in the early 1990s, has been capturing the imagination of filmmakers recently. “Oklahoma City,” about the worst domestic terrorism incident in American history, is one of the best documentaries we’ve seen this year, Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany starred in a miniseries about the Unabomber, and Jaume Collet-Serra is planning a movie about the Waco siege.

Back when The Martian was prepping for its home video release, I had a chance to chat with the novel's author, Andy Weir. At the time, he had been working on his follow-up novel, some Hollywood screenplays, and a TV series pitch. Weir had actually back-burnered a book project by the name of "Zhek" in order to work on a new story "about a city on the moon" that was "going to be another technically accurate sci-fi story." Though he was understandably reluctant to dish out too many specifics at the time, now, it looks like … »
