Doctor Who Companion Series Class, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, And Falling Water Are Coming To Space
If it sometimes seems there aren’t enough hours in the day to watch all the TV series that interest you, expect that problem to escalate in the months ahead. Bell Media has announced 22 exclusive new series premiering on its specialty channels (including Bravo, The Comedy Network, Discovery, Gusto, E!, MTV, and Much) during the 2016/2017 season—and there really is something for everyone. Space viewers should be especially excited, as Bell’s announcement includes three major additions to the network’s lineup.
Set in contemporary London, this Doctor Who spin-off (from executive producers Steven Moffat and Brian Minchin) is being described as “scary,” “funny,” “painful,” and “sharp as youth.” Class stars Greg Austin, Fady Elsayed, Sophie Hopkins, and Vivian Oparah as four Coal Hill School students who “have hidden secrets and desires, and are facing their own worst fears, navigating a life of friends, parents, school work, sex, sorrow—and possibly the end of existence.”
Stan Lee’s Lucky Man
Stan Lee may be 93, but he’s still generating plenty of new material. Based on an original idea from the comic book legend, Lucky Man tells the story of Harry Clayton (James Nesbitt), a gambling-addicted cop, who is having serious issues with his wife, his boss, and an infamous gangster. When a mysterious woman gives Harry an ancient bracelet, his luck suddenly turns around—with some unforeseen consequences.
Executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Falling Water is the story of “three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream.” This series is already earning comparisons to Inception, but as you’ll see in the trailer below, Falling Water has some creepy ideas of its own.
