A nice quote about this serie: “Bloys has expressed confidence that Westworld is the heir to Game of Thrones’ flagship status, so the focus now is on finding different kinds of drama — not necessarily expansive genre undertakings. “We didn’t have a lot of variation in drama,” he said of the network he inherited a year ago. “I’m trying to get high-quality dramas with a lot of different feels to them. For a while, we were just looking for the next big tentpole.” One different kind of hourlong on the horizon comes from network favorite Alan Ball. The family drama, once titled Here, Now, is described by Bloys as “a mix of True Blood and Six Feet Under.”
This will be amazing. Will it be out in time for 2018 Emmys?
Ready to see what Alan Ball comes up with next. I just watched the pilot to “Midnight, Texas,” and it’s such warmed-over network silliness that “True Blood” did so much better on HBO years ago. Premise and cast both sound promising. Hope that’s not the title they stick with.
