It’s a sad day for America: there will be no The Great British Baking Show on PBS this summer.

Mindy Kaling has remade Richard Curtis’s classic rom com Four Weddings and a Funeral as a miniseries, and it’s coming to Hulu.

A new reboot of All Creatures Great and Small is planned! I’d be more excited, as I love the books, but honestly, I don’t know how it will be possible to top the original. Robert Hardy AND Peter Davison together? That was some genius casting.

New BBC One drama: Dark Money.

BBC One drama Holby City: adds Jo Martin to the cast.

Is there going to be a series 5 of the classic comedy Blackadder?

A follow-up to Penny Dreadful is planned: casting news.

New Welsh (dark) comedy series planned: In My Skin.

I’m no fan of drones, so I’d kind of like to see this new BBC Two documentary about the danger drones can pose to all of us.

New Zealand teen sci-fi drama series The Cul de Sac coming to the BBC.

Monty Python to mark 50th anniversary with a new album.

Is Doctor Who series 12 going to “tackle environmental issues“? (And speaking of the Doctors, Jodie Whittaker and David Tennant will be singing to support a new BBC album for children’s charity Children in Need.)

A new BBC documentary about trans athletes is getting good reviews.

Piers Morgan is keeping busy “looking into the world of psychopaths” for a new documentary, and also, picking on dads who dare to carry their babies in baby slings.

What’s with all the wimpy, disappointing men on TV right now?

Phoebe Waller-Bridge on how Fleabag put her family in a spotlight, and not necessarily a good one at that.

Lennie James (of the sublime Line of Duty, and many other programs): Profile.

One of my favorite things about the Brits is how much they like Kylie Minogue.

Australian drama Halifax: Retribution casting news: American Anthony LePaglia will join the cast.

Jamie Dornan to star in a new movie with Kristen Wiig.

Hobbs & Shaw: Not a British movie, but starring Brits Jason Statham and Idris Elba. (Although I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: it looks absolutely ridiculous.)

The Good Liar (starring Helen Mirren and Ian McKellen): Trailer.

New short video: On set with Bond 25.

New(ish) Brit horror flick: Slaughterhouse Rulez. Here’s the trailer.
