Video Interview: Annie Murphy’s New Animated Series, Praise Petey, Debuts Tonight on Freeform

Praise PeteyFreeform’s hotly anticipated animated series Praise Petey premieres tonight on Freeform. The new show stars Annie Murphy (Schitt’s Creek) as Petey, an “it” girl whose well-curated life comes crashing down, forcing her to take on a new challenge and learn what it truly means to be a leader. 

Prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, Murphy chatted with journalists about the quirky new series and its hilarious premise.

“When we meet Petey,” Murphy told SciFi Vision, “she's a real New Yorker, a real city girl who thinks she has it all figured out. But unfortunately, she loses her job, her apartment burns down, she breaks up with her boyfriend, and her dead dad bestows a cult upon her. So, she has to move from New York to the south and try to figure out how to be the leader of a cult with no previous experience.”

What Murphy loves most is creator/writer/EP Anna Drezen (Saturday Night Live)’s no-holds-barred approach. “It's so uncensored and so outrageous. It's very, very funny,” she enthused, “but it's also a very smart show, and it's touching on a lot of different relevant themes. So, I think if you have a quirkier sensibility, then this show is going to be very, very, very up your alley.”

Interview: The Walking Dead: Dead City's Željko Ivanek, Gaius Charles, & Mahina Napoleon

The Walking Dead: Dead CityTonight, the new spinoff, The Walking Dead: Dead City, premieres on AMC. The series follows Maggie (Lauren Cohan) and Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) as they venture into a post-apocalyptic Manhattan that has been cut off from the mainland, hatching a plan to rescue Maggie’s son, Hershel (Logan Kim), who has been kidnapped by The Croat, (Željko Ivanek), an evil man who Negan has dealt with before. Meanwhile, the two must also stay ahead of the marshal, Armstrong (Gaius Charles), who is trying to bring Negan to justice for crimes he has committed.

Ivanek and Charles, along with Mahina Napoleon, who plays the character of Ginny, recently spoke with the media about the new series.

Both Ivanek and Charles’ characters serve as adversaries for the heroes of the story. Charles views Armstrong as an obstacle mostly for Negan. “I want to bring him to justice for something,” the actor told SciFi Vision. “I think anybody that's watched the show really resonates with season seven, [with] Glenn (Steven Yeun) [and] a lot of the other stuff he's done. He's got a long rap sheet. I think it's cool that we're using law and order to try to reestablish this world, and that becomes a huge obstacle for Negan and for a lot of people in this world where right and wrong isn't clear.”

“I think for my character, The Croat, [he’s] being pulled back into a world that he left,” said Ivanek. “…I think that's the last thing he wants to do, unfortunately.”

“I think that Ginny brings out a different point of view for fans and a different side of Negan and Maggie,” added Napoleon. “So, I think Ginny creates this whole different perspective, because normally fans think that Maggie is the hero and Negan is a villain, but I think that Ginny brings a totally opposite, different perspective.”

Video Interview: Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’ Ethan Peck & Paul Wesley

Star Trek: Strange New WorldsThe second season of Star Trek: Strange New Worlds begins today with episode 201, “The Broken Circle.” With Ethan Peck back as Spock and Paul Wesley cast as Kirk, fans are looking forward to the big moment when the franchise’s foremost characters meet for the first time.  In the runup to the season, Peck and Wesley sat down with a panel of journalists to talk about playing two legendary characters as young men whose enduring friendship is still in the future. 

Peck’s Spock is much younger than the previous versions (played by Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto) and he’s still trying to get to get a handle on his emotions.

“We will see Spock further explore his human side,” Peck told SciFi Vision, “and he does this in various situations and relationships as well.  I think it's very apparent in his interactions with Nurse Chapel (Jess Bush). There's a really wonderful situation where Spock can do nothing but face his human-ness that I'm very excited about.”

The pair also talked about their chemistry on and off-screen and gave plenty of insight into what motivates young Spock and Kirk. One writer even got Peck to talk about an early episode that highlights a “secret ability…that my friends don't even know [about].”
