Manny Coto Fox Series ‘NeXt’: Why We Should Really Be Afraid Of A.I. – TCA

  • Deadline
Manny Coto Fox Series ‘NeXt’: Why We Should Really Be Afraid Of A.I. – TCA
One of the inspirations for Manny Coto’s Fox series NeXt came from his son’s Alexa: The device, out of the blue, began talking at 3Am one night.

“He claimed it happened a couple of times, but we never got down to the mystery. These things have a mind of their own even though we have five of them in the house because the kids won’t let me get rid of them,” said Coto who also submerged himself in a number of scientific books, many off Elon Musk’s theories, about the looming fears of superintelligence and how it could potentially turn against us.

The series, which looks to hit the network in May, focuses on one serious A.I. which is hellbent to destroy the lives of those trying to stop it. John Slattery, Fernanda Andrade, Jason Butler Harner, Eve Harlow and Michael Mosley star.

Coto billed the first season,

neXt: Fox Creepy A.I. Series Trailer Arrives After Series Order

Joseph Baxter May 14, 2019

Fox TV series neXt plays on real artificial intelligence fears. The series stars Avengers: Endgame's John Slattery.

neXt will arrive under Fox’s network television tentpole playing on increasingly widespread – certainly legitimate – fears about privacy from our own devices, specifically what information our artificial intelligence helpers are stealthily stealing from our lives.

While the news-headline-ripped topic centers on the idea that device-dwelling A.I.s like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home are gleaning metadata (maybe more) by listening to our conversations, the premise of neXt takes the notion a step further, showcasing the story of a tech mogul, played by John Slattery of AMC’s Mad Men and Avengers: Endgame, who is attempting to stop his rogue A.I. invention from causing chaos.

Having just been picked up to series by Fox, neXt will arrive under the purview of creator/executive producer Manny Coto (24:

Fox Orders Four More Dramas, Two More Comedies for 2019-2020 Season

  • Variety
Fox Orders Four More Dramas, Two More Comedies for 2019-2020 Season
The New Fox is ramping up for the 2019-2020 season with six new series pick ups.

The broadcaster handed out orders for four dramas — “Deputy,” “Prodigal Son,” “neXt,” and the untitled Annie Weisman/Jason Katims project — as well as two comedies. One of the comedies is the animated series “The Great North” and the second is the multi-cam “Outmatched,” formerly known as “Geniuses.” These orders join the previously announced straight-to-series orders for the animated comedies “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” at Fox.

Each of the newly announced pick ups is a co-production with Fox Entertainment (formerly Fox Broadcasting). The move will allow Fox to maintain a stake in the shows despite not having a vertically-integrated studio like they did before the 21st Century Fox-Disney merger that saw 20th Century Fox Television move under the Disney umbrella. Both “Duncanville” and “Bless the Harts” are co-productions as well. “Duncanville” is produced by Universal Television,

Stage Door: Bernhardt/Hamlet

by Dancin' Dan

It's a tall enough order to write a play about one of the greatest actresses the world has ever known. It's quite another to write a play about that same actress taking on one of the most famous plays ever written. But Theresa Rebeck has never been one to back away from a challenge. Her delightful new play Bernhardt/Hamlet imagines what it must have been like for the great Sarah Bernhardt to assay the role of none other than Hamlet, all the way back in 1897. To say the least, it was difficult.

Bernhardt (Janet McTeer), in her fifties, was past the point where she could believably play the dying ingénues that made her famous (and also far past the point where she wanted to). Out of money but full of ambition, she decides that Shakespeare's melancholy Dane will be her vehicle for a comeback after her last play,

Broadway Newcomer ‘Boys In The Band’ Was A Revival, Tony Committee Decides

  • Deadline
Broadway Newcomer ‘Boys In The Band’ Was A Revival, Tony Committee Decides
Joe Mantello’s recent Broadway staging of Mart Crowley’s The Boys in the Band will be eligible for a 2019 Tony Award – no surprise there – but theater trivia buffs might quibble with the category: Best Revival of a Play.

Although the gay groundbreaker has been staged many times since its Off Broadway debut in 1968, The Boys in the Band had never made its way to Broadway until Mantello’s star-packed production last April. So revival, or new play?

Revival, says the Tony Awards Administration Committee.

The decision was one of six announced today. Although the committee does not publicly explain its decisions, Boys’ 50-year production history – Broadway notwithstanding – apparently persuaded the committee toward the revival designation.

The designation was made during the first of four scheduled meetings planned by the committee for the 2018-2019 Broadway season. Other determinations made today:
