Apple TV + will feature Mexican superhero series featuring “Rebel” actor; Dickinson is well received at festival

O Apple TV + really has the whole ball: we still have almost a month and a half until the service streaming Apple makes its official debut for the general public, but Apple continues to add stars to its (ever-growing) series catalog and even win awards.

Let's take a turn for the news, then?

?El Gato Negro?

Apple continues to add series and stars to its catalog. The latest arrival, brought by the Hollywood Reporter, of ?El Gato Negro?, adaptation of the Mexican comic story of the same name.

Diego BonetaDiego Boneta

The series will be directed by the filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, known for his work in movies as ?Sin City? and ?Alita: Fighting Angel?; Rodriguez also plays the role of executive producer with the actor Diego Boneta (?Rebel?), who star in the production.

There is still no more information about the series, but the comic on which it is based tells the story of two heroes fighting crime in southern Texas, one of them, a young man who takes on the cloak after the death of his best friend, and the another, his grandfather, a veteran of lucha libre Mexican who played the same role decades before.

In addition to Rodriguez and Boneta, the series will be co-produced by Joel Novoa, and will be made in partnership with MGM Television and producer Three Amigos.

?Carpool Karaoke?

For the second year in a row, the variety program ?Carpool Karaoke: The Series? took a Primetime Emmy Award This is one of the ?main? awards Emmy, of artistic category.

Just like last year, the award billed by Apple was the Best Short Range Series. Among the other nominees in the category, we had two series running on YouTube (?Honest Trailers? and ?The Randy Rainbow Show?) and two others produced by the comedy group Funny or Die (?Billy on the Street? and Gay of Thrones).

Remember that the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, responsible for the Emmy, released part of the awards yesterday; the most coveted figurines in the main categories will be announced (and delivered) next Sunday (9/22) at a ceremony at the Microsoft Theater (heh) in Los Angeles (California).


As announced, Apple recently aired the first full episode of one of its Apple TV + series. It is the pilot of Dickinson, which premiered at the Tribeca TV Festival and, to the relief of Ma, received good reviews and was well received by the audience present.

O AppleInsider was one of the specialized websites present in press, and reported that the episode received applause, although it was not standing ovation. As expected, "Dickinson" brings a number of purposeful anachronisms in the quest to recount part of the life of poet Emily Dickinson, who lived in the mid-19th century the show's pilot, for example, brought in a Billie Eilish song as a soundtrack and yet showed the rapper Wiz khalifa as a stylized embodiment of death.

According to reports, the series even with a light and comical tone does not deviate from themes or scenarios considered more adult. The first episode features a brief sex scene, and implies that the production plot focuses on Dickinson's romantic relationship with his sister-in-law, Susan Gilbert. For those who complied with the fact that Apple would focus entirely on content family-friendlyThis information can be a breath.

John MulaneyJohn Mulaney

In a related note, a new name has been added to the cast of ?Dickinson?: John Mulaney, comedian known for his presentations of stand up and for the work in Saturday Night Live. Mulaney plays in the series a fictionalized version of the poet Henry David Thoreau who, in real life, never met Dickinson. To know how this meeting is going to be good, only after November 1st.


Another cast news is in Shantaram, series based on the novel of the same name by author Gregory David Roberts that we already talked about here. According to the Variety, the actor Charlie Hunnam, in Sons of Anarchy, was cast as protagonist of the overproduction, which should have its filming started soon.

Finally, the Geeks Worldwide reported that the actor Justin theroux (in ?The Leftovers?) star in a new series of Apple TV +, yet unnamed released.
