Exclusive Video Interviews: EP & Cast on The Calling, Now Streaming on Peacock

The CallingThe new series, The Calling, premieres today on Peacock. The series, which comes from creator David E. Kelley, was adapted from the Avraham Avraham novels by D.A. Mishani and follows NYPD Detective Avraham Avraham (Jeff Wilbusch) who is guided by his spirituality and has a way of connecting with others that allows him to see things that others may miss.

SciFi Vision spoke with the cast and executive producer, Matthew Tinker, Kelley’s producing partner, recently, to promote the series.

Although the series is an adaptation, there were certain things that had to be changed, according to Tinker, such as placing the series in Brooklyn. “[T]here's the saying of write what you know,” the producer told SciFi Vision. “So, the books take place in Tel Aviv. That's not a place I've lived; it’s not a place David [Kelley]'s lived. I think to tell this as authentically as possible, we found an actor who was very much Avraham and could authentically portray Avraham in Jeff, but in setting it, we needed to be able to write about a place that we were familiar with…We have tons of different perspectives and voices on the show in the writers room and the producers and the various directors we've had that it should feel like a melting pot of perspectives and voices, but at the end of the day, to kick things off, both David and I looked at Brooklyn and felt like this is the place where we can tell this story authentically and efficiently.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Showrunner Simon Barry Discusses Season 2 of Netflix's Warrior Nun

Warrior NunAfter over two years of waiting by fans, today marks the anticipated return of Warrior Nun to Netflix. SciFi Vision spoke with showrunner Simon Barry earlier in the week about what fans can expect.

Season one of Warrior Nun revolved around trying to free Adriel (William Miller). They’ve now discovered that Adriel was not an angel as they had believed, and this season focuses on Ava (Alba Baptista) and the other nuns of the Order of the Cruciform Sword defeating him. “We really wanted to have Ava be given an adversary that was worthy of her and worthy of the situation that she finds herself in and is embracing as a character,” Barry told SciFi Vision, “because Ava in season one kind of got over this situation she found herself accidentally in and decided that this was a life of purpose and a life that would have meaning. She found love and companionship with her sisters, and so now she has someone to fight for. It wasn't just about her anymore and being selfish. It was about her being selfless. So, we needed season two to really be the expression of that, and in doing so, we needed to give her something that she could conceivably give everything up for if she had to, because that's ultimately what the hero does.”

The World is Dark and Broken - The Walking Dead 11x22, Faith - Review

The Walking Dead“[The Walking Dead] ends with a really definitive conclusion for both the series and then each individual character.”
--Scott Gimple, interview with Entertainment Weekly, 25 October 2022

With only two episodes to go before the end of the series, it feels like The Walking Dead is somersaulting so unevenly through the convoluted Commonwealth plot that the show has little chance of sticking the landing. The season as a whole has been, at times, bewildering in its narrative choices, with dead ends (Leah’s arc) and sudden drop-offs (Oceanside) that frustrate any viewer who has been tuned in for more than one season.

“Faith” has as its focus Negan’s redemption arc. Ostensibly, the episode deals with questions around our faith in each other, our faith in the world, and our faith in ourselves. Maggie doubts her decision to bring Hershel Jnr into the world; Pamela fights to retain the support of the disillusioned Commonwealth citizens; and Mercer reveals a realignment of his loyalties. But, undoubtedly, the primary purpose of 11x22 is to move Negan’s story forward, towards his upcoming spinoff with Maggie.

Exclusive Video Interview: Kosar Ali Costars in Starz' Dangerous Liaisons Prequel Series

Kosar AliWith its new series, Dangerous Liaisons, Starz takes on a well-known story from a fresh new angle. 

The show, which premieres tonight, was inspired by the 1782 novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses, a tale of seduction, secrets, and revenge among the French aristocracy. The original story centers on the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, cruel ex-lovers who concoct a scheme to ruin other people’s lives and destroy themselves in the process. The novel has been adapted dozens of times including two recent feature films: 1988’s Oscar-winning Dangerous Liaisons and 1999’s Cruel Intentions.

The new show is not a remake or an adaption so much as it is a prequel, imagining how happy couple Camille and Pascal (Australian actors Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton) become vengeful social climbers determined to get what they want. Pascal is obsessed with reclaiming the title and fortune his stepmother stole from him, while Camille seeks power in a man’s world.

Sujaya DasguptaShantaram is back and better than ever! There are a lot of incredible moments, especially for Kavita, played by Sujaya Dasgupta. Last week, we saw her begin to make her mark as a journalist, which is something that was a long time coming. It not only has an impact on her career, but on her as a person.

“It's the first time we properly see Kavita, who's my character, and how she plays in this whole series and the start of her journey in this whole show,” Dasgupta told SciFi Vision. “She kind of lands with a big kind of blast. She's really hungry for a story and very eager to make her mark as a journalist.”

She went on to say that Kavita will continue to dig around for more as the season goes on, all while she tries to prove herself in the world of journalism. “I'm really excited to see where she can go,” she added, although she admits that there are several places the writers can take the character, especially since we only saw glimpses of her in the books.

Exclusive Video Interview: Stars Ramirez & Long Tease Season 4 of Manifest

***The following interview contains slight spoilers***

ManifestTomorrow, Netflix releases the first half of season four of the fan favorite Manifest. The series follows passengers of Flight 828 who not only returned home to find that five years had passed, but started receiving visions of the future called callings.

One of the ones left behind during those five years to pick up the pieces and try to move on was Jared Vasquez (J.R. Ramirez), fiancé of Michaela Stone (Melissa Roxburgh), who was on the flight. This season, which picks up two years after the events of season three, he really balances the duty of his job at the NYPD with helping Michaela and the other 828 passengers. “He's put his job on the line for Michaela over and over and over again; this woman will always have a piece of his heart,” Ramirez told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “He's tried to move on countless times…Over the two years, I feel like there's been a sense of maybe reflection that he's taken to work on himself and grow up and just accept what he has and what this life looks like with or without her. There's a sense of kind of calmness that you see that you'll see now…within the mix of all the other stuff. Helping figure out the Death Date and being there for Ben (Josh Dallas) and the family trying to find baby Eden, obviously he’s a very integral part to all that with his detective work.”

Exclusive Video Interview: Manifest Stars Dallas & Roxburgh Talk Season 4, Premiering Tomorrow

ManifestTomorrow, fan favorite Manifest comes to Netflix. The series has followed passengers of Flight 828 who returned to their lives discovering that five years had passed. The passengers soon realized they might be meant for something greater than themselves as they started to get “callings,” or guided visions of future events, some of them coming to believe that there is a death date coming for them if they don’t use their knowledge to help others and change things around.

At the end of season three, misguided passenger Angelina (Holly Taylor) killed Grace Stone (Athena Karkanis) and kidnapped baby Eden. This season, Ben (Josh Dallas) mourns the loss of his wife, but won’t give up hope in finding his daughter. The rich script made it easy for Dallas to tap into that darkness and grief. “Jeff Rake and our brilliant writers have created such a rich landscape for us to play around and tap into,” Dallas told SciFi Vision during a recent interview. “All those things were there for me to embrace and take into myself, just the idea that his wife was murdered, his daughter was kidnapped, and his son has grown older, so he misses out on more of his years. It was all devastating and not hard to tap into the melancholy and the emotionality of all that.”
