Exclusive Video Interview: Merritt Wever on her Role in New AppleTV+ Series Roar

Merritt WeverOn Friday, AppleTV+ dropped its new anthology series, Roar. Based on Cecelia Ahearn’s collection of short stories, this offbeat series tells the stories of eight women – mothers, daughters, wives and sisters - navigating love, marriage, motherhood and even murder.

Apple TV+ calls the stories “darkly comic feminist fables,” which perfectly describes episode eight, “The Woman Who Was Fed by a Duck.” Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) stars as Elisa, a single woman who spends most days sitting beside a duck pond, studying for her med school entrance exam. She’s stuck in a bit of a rut until she meets a talking duck who might (or might not) be just what she’s looking for.

Exclusive Video Interview: Brian Watkins on Creating Outer Range & Blending Genres

Brian WatkinsBlending a western saga with a supernatural mystery, Outer Range, which premieres today on Prime Video, tells the story of Royal Abbott (Josh Brolin) and his family as they struggle to keep their land. Things become much more complicated when Royal finds a mysterious void on his ranch and events begin to unfold.

Containing elements of drama, humor, westerns, and science fiction, creator Brian Watkins, who recently spoke with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview, said that it’s the emotional aspect of the series that joins everything together. “I feel like the sci-fi in the show we always try to tell people is meant to be not extraterrestrial, but terrestrial, very kind of, of the earth,” said Watkins. “In that way,” he continued, “I think the blending of it only blends when we're feeling something about the characters, and hopefully, those are things that we can relate to.

Exclusive Video Interview: Taskmaster's Greg Davies & Alex Horne

Greg Davies and Alex HorneRecently, it became a lot easier in the US to stream all things Taskmaster, when at the beginning of the month, Taskmaster Supermax+ streaming service became available. Today the first episode of season nine of the series drops, soon to be followed by the rollout of subsequent seasons, as well as international versions. Having their own streaming service rather than being hosted allowed more control, according to creator and star Alex Horne, who spoke with SciFi Vision in an exclusive interview last week. “Everything's going to be in one place,” said Horne, “no adverts, and all the ones from around the world. So, it's all there, and it just means that we're in control of it. They will still go up on YouTube for free, but it just seems like this way, we don't have to bother with any other middleman.”

Chicago MedSciFi Vision has been making the rounds at Chicago Med and had the chance to speak with series regulars Marlyne Barrett and Oliver Platt, who costar as two hospital veterans: charge nurse Maggie Campbell and Dr. Daniel Charles, head of psychiatry.

Both characters often act as teachers and mentors to their younger colleagues, but they come at it from different angles. We love watching Dr. Charles work with resident Vanessa Taylor, and we asked Platt about their working relationship.

Interview: Hugh Laurie, Will Poulter, & Lucy Boynton Talk Why Didn’t They Ask Evans?

Why Didn't They Ask Evans?Today Britbox released the miniseries Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? The story follows Bobby Jones (Will Poulter) and Lady Frankie Derwent (Lucy Boynton) who become amateur sleuths looking to solve a murder and find the meaning behind the victim’s mysterious last words. The three-episode series is based on the Agatha Christie mystery, with a script by Hugh Laurie, who also directs and executive produces, as well as plays the role of Dr. James Nicholson.

Last week, SciFi Vision talked to Laurie during a press conference with the three performers to promote the adaptation about the difficulties choosing what parts to draw from the original vs adding his own ideas to the story. “That's a tricky one,” said Laurie. “I suppose you just have a sort of instinct that, oh, no, that's not going to work here. Something else needs to happen. We need some other ingredient here that you can't really explain why it is; you just feel it. Sometimes I feel when writing I am sort of partially acting as a reader, just reading rather than writing, and when acting, I feel like I'm watching as much as acting…As a reader, or as a viewer, you just get a sense of, I need something different to happen here. I need some surprise, or I need some alteration of energy or pace or something. And as far as I know, there's no great theory to it. Or if there is, I didn't know what the theory is…I think it's just a sort of an instinct…just sort of a rhythmic thing.”

Exclusive Video Interview: That Dirty Black Bag's Douglas Booth

Douglas BoothDouglas Booth stars as Red Bill in the new eight-part drama series on AMC+, That Dirty Black Bag. The series, which plays homage to the classic spaghetti westerns, tells the story of the clash between the sheriff, Arthur McCoy (Dominic Cooper) and Bill, a bounty hunter known for decapitating his targets and keeping their heads in his bag, because heads weigh less than their bodies.

According to Booth, who really changed his looks for the series, the costume, which was a collaboration, really helped him get into character. “When I put his outfit on, I felt a change came over me,” said Booth in a recent exclusive with SciFi Vision. “I'm quite different in the series from how I am in real life, so something happens there, I’d say.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Tosin Cole Talks 61st Street & Doctor Who

Tosin ColeTonight AMC premieres its new series 61st Street, which follows high school track star Moses Johnson, played by Tosin Cole, who witnesses a shooting during a drug bust and flees, which starts off a chain of events that puts him in the middle of the corrupt Chicago criminal justice system when a police officer ends up dead.

The series highlights a lot of what’s going on in the world today, tacking real world issues of racial profiling, institutional racism, police corruption, and more. Cole feels honored to be in such a series and takes it seriously. “You feel like you’ve been chosen to be a vessel for a bigger discussion,” Cole told SciFi Vision during an exclusive interview. “Obviously there’s a sense of responsibility that you have. I mean, obviously, I’m a black man, so I’m trying to make sure I represent and tell the story the best way I can and as truthful as I can, and, obviously, you want to make sure it’s part of a bigger discussion and a discussion that’s held with empathy…I’m just honored to be a part of that discussion and to make something that effects people in that way and [makes] them think.”

The actor continued that the series is based in Chicago, but the themes are universal.

Video Interview: Aasif Mandvi Hosts Would I Lie To You, Premiering Tomorrow

Aasif MandviTomorrow night, The CW premieres its new game show, Would I Lie To You?, based on the British panel series of the same name. Actor and comedian Aasif Mandvi takes Rob Brydon’s role as host, with Matt Walsh and Sabrina Jalees taking on Lee Mack and David Mitchell’s roles as team captains. For each show, two celebrities join each captain to make up the two teams. Players take turns revealing outrageous and unusual facts, and the opposing team of panelists must decide if they are telling the truth or lying.

Mandvi, who recently took part in a roundtable to talk about hosting the new show, told SciFi Vision that he was “very familiar” with the original series. “I was addicted to the original series,” said Mandvi, “and that's why I wanted to do this one. My wife and I just ended up watching it. I think it was in 2019 we discovered it, maybe 2018. I found it on Britbox, and I just started watching it. They’ve got fourteen seasons of the British one, so there was just a lot of material there. So, we would watch it at night as a way to just decompress…We would just use it as a way to kind of just chill and laugh.”
