Studios is excited to announce the June debut of The Fiction, a new limited series from Curt Pires (POP, Mayday) and rising star artist David Rubín (Battling Boy: The Rise of Aurora West) about a group of childhood friends who discover doorways to other worlds through a set of strange books, in the vein of The Unwritten and Jumanji.  
“Everyone loves getting pulled into a good story, but what happens if the story doesn’t want to let you back out again?” said BOOM! Studios Editor-in-Chief Matt Gagnon. “Curt has tapped into the ultimate fantasy of escapism and turned it on its head. David is a hugely talented artist who’s been tasked with creating two worlds in The Fiction, and he’s blown us away. This is a series that embraces the beauty and narrative potential of the comic book medium.”
Four childhood friends discover a box of strange books that, when read aloud, can transport them to the beautiful, imaginary worlds described within. But when one of them goes missing, the others vow never to reveal where they’ve been and what they’ve seen. Years later, when one of the remaining kids, now an adult, also mysteriously disappears, it’s up to the last two of the group to dig up their dusty books to find him and finally figure out what happened to their friend all those years ago.
The Fiction #1 arrives in comic shops on June 17th with a main cover by series artist David Rubín for the price of $3.99 under Diamond order code APR151177.

Eight-Part Series Explores a Parallel Present Where Artificially Intelligent Servants Live Among Us

NEW YORK, NY – May 14, 2015 – AMC today announced its new eight-part drama series “Humans” will premiere Sunday, June 28th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Set in suburban London, “Humans” takes place in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a Synth – a highly developed, artificially intelligent servant eerily similar to its living counterpart.  Penned by British writing partners Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley (“Spooks,” Spooks: The Greater Good) and based on the award-winning Swedish sci-fi drama “Real Humans,” the series explores the emotional impact that comes as the lines between humans and machines become increasingly blurred. This bold new series is produced in conjunction with the UK’s Channel 4 and Kudos, the makers of “Utopia” and “Broadchurch.”

“‘Humans’ is a series that is both incredibly entertaining and engaging on a character level, and a very timely exploration of the kind of impact the A.I. technology being developed today might have on our everyday lives,” said Joel Stillerman, AMC’s executive vice president of programming, production and digital content.  “You don't have to be a sci-fi fan to enjoy this story. As the title implies, it's very much about the human side of the topic. Sam and Jonathan's scripts are amazing, and we're thrilled to be working with the amazing teams at Kudos and Channel 4.”

TODAY – In Nagasaki, Japan, a hotel staffed primarily by robots will be opening this summer. These robots won’t just clean your room and pick up your laundry. They’ll check you in, make your dinner reservations, mimic human behaviors and speak four languages.  TOMORROW – Your Saturday afternoon errands could result in purchasing a fully functional robotic domestic helper that will get your kids ready for school or take care of an ailing parent.  Whether that’s a good or bad decision is the question “Humans” sets out to explore. It’s not about what this technology is capable of; it’s about the impact that this advanced technology will have on the human population. Will this new way of navigating life be detrimental or beneficial to us as a human race?   And who will we become when this technology arrives? 

At the center of the four concurrent storylines explored throughout “Humans” is the flawed but loving Hawkins family. Joe Hawkins (Tom Goodman-Hill) makes the decision to invest in the latest must-have gadget for any busy family – a Synth. His relationship with his wife Laura (Katherine Parkinson) is becoming increasingly strained and he believes that the addition of a robotic servant to the household will give them back the time they so desperately need and help them re-connect both as a couple and as a family.  The Hawkins’ new Synth, Anita (Gemma Chan), is an immediate hit, and their chaotic house is suddenly transformed into an oasis of tidy, organized, well-fed contentment.  With hesitation, Laura gives in to the family demand, but soon senses there’s something different about Anita. There’s something not right.

Others, though, have long since abandoned any scepticism and are embracing their Synths as family members. Widower George Millican (William Hurt) has formed a close relationship with his out-of-date Synth, Odi (Will Tudor), whom he treats more like a son than a piece of machinery. When Odi begins to malfunction, the National Health Service forcefully upgrades him with a new stern elder-care model named Vera (Rebecca Front) and George must hide the bond he has with Odi or risk forfeiting him to the authorities.

Meanwhile, a young man named Leo (Colin Morgan) and his Synth, Max (Ivanno Jeremiah), are desperately searching for someone from Leo's past. But who is it, and why? And why does Max seem to be so unlike other Synths? On their heels is a mysterious man named Hobb (Danny Webb), who is determined to uncover a secret before it can destroy humanity as we know it.

Finally, D.S. Peter Drummond (Neil Maskell) works for the Special Technologies Task Force, solving Synth-related disputes to get away from his frustration over his wife's flawless Synthetic physical therapist. Pete spends most of his days pushing papers and solving petty incidents, as Synths rarely, if ever, malfunction, until one day he investigates a case that defies all possibility.

“Humans” stars William Hurt (A History of Violence, “Damages”) as Dr. George Millican, Katherine Parkinson (“The IT Crowd,The Honourable Woman”) as Laura Hawkins, Gemma Chan (“Sherlock,” “Dr. Who”) as Anita, Tom Goodman-Hill (“Mr. Selfridge,” The Imitation Game) as Joe Hawkins, Lucy Carless (“Code of a Killer”) as Mattie Hawkins, Colin Morgan (“Merlin,” “The Fall 2”) as Leo, Pixie Davis (“Utopia,” “The White Queen”) as Sophie Hawkins, Ivanno Jeremiah (“The Hollow Crown”) as Max, Theo Stevenson (In Bruges, Fred Claus) as Toby Hawkins, Emily Berrington (“24: Live Another Day,” “Sons of Liberty”) as Niska, Neil Maskell (“Utopia”) as D.S. Peter Drummond, Will Tudor (“Game of Thrones”) as Odi, Rebecca Front (“The Thick Of It,” “Just William”), as Vera, Danny Webb (“Dr. Who,” “Being Human”) as Hobb, and Sope Dirisu (“Utopia”) as Fred.

“Humans” is produced by Kudos (“Utopia,” “Broadchurch,” “The Hour”) in association with Matador Films (“Real Humans”).  Directed by Sam Donovan (“Utopia”), executive producers are Jane Featherstone (“Broadchurch,” “Utopia,” “The Hour”) and Derek Wax (“The Hour,” “Occupation,” “Lip Service”) for Kudos, with Chris Fry (“The Smoke”) producing for Kudos and Henrik Widman and Lars Lundström for Matador Films. The series was commissioned for Channel 4 by Piers Wenger, Beth Willis and Simon Maxwell, and Kristin Jones and Joel Stillerman for AMC. Distribution will be handled by Endemol Shine International.

BOY-1 Evolves This August At IDW
The Experiment Begins With A New Mind-bending Mini Series

San Diego, CA (May 14, 2015) – IDW Publishing is pleased to add the thrilling new creator-owned science-fiction miniseries, BOY-1, to their hit list of summer releases.

Penned by writer and creator HS Tak and vividly rendered by artist Amancay Nahuelpan, BOY-1 captures the futuristic journey of a man who discovers he is the subject of a groundbreaking experiment that spins out of control and soon threatens the extinction of all mankind. With nations hunting him as they struggle to maintain order, every move he makes comes with a thousand repercussions.

“I was impressed by the singular vision that Himkar had for Boy-1 when we first talked about it a while back, and seeing it come together visually thanks to Amancay’s great artwork makes it even more vivid,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “I’m very happy we could make this one happen at IDW.”

BOY-1 is set in a world after the completion of The Human Genome Project heralds a new age in science, medicine, and technology, but any form of human cloning has been deemed incompatible with society’s standard of ethics. It then goes on to explore what could happen if a group of intrepid researchers didn’t listen…

“I just tried to make a story that would grip and not let go,” said writer/creator Tak. “I’m thankful that Chris Ryall put his eyes on it and brought it into IDW—I can't think of a better team of storytellers around me. Amancay took the words and lifted them up with his ink.”

BOY-1 is also being developed for television by Scripted World (Alon Aranya & Rob Golenberg), the producers behind Hostages and Betrayal.

“These are the kinds of stories that explode into your life and take you to another world, one that might seem far off but is much closer than we think. We're thrilled to develop the series for TV,” said Aranya.

Look for BOY-1 coming from IDW this August with stunning covers by Zach Howard (Wild Blue Yonder) and Amancay Nahuelpan as Scripted World targets a network TV launch in 2016.

In the NARUTO manga and animated series, Naruto Uzumaki wants to be the best ninja in the land. He's done well so far, but Naruto knows he must train harder than ever and leaves his village for intense exercises that will push him to his limits. NARUTO SHIPPUDEN begins two and a half years later, when Naruto returns to find that everyone has been promoted up the ninja ranks – except him. Sakura’s a medic ninja, Gaara’s advanced to Kazekage, and Kakashi…well he remains the same. But pride isn’t necessarily becoming of a ninja, especially when Naruto realizes that Sasuke never returned from his search for Orochimaru. Plus, the mysterious Akatsuki organization is still an ever-present danger. As Naruto finds out more about the Akatsuki’s goals, he realizes that nothing in his universe is as it seems. Naruto is finding that he’s older, but will he also prove wiser and stronger?

Beverly Hills, Calif., May 13, 2015 – Starz today announced the highly anticipated premiere of original series “Blunt Talk” and return of the critically-acclaimed “Survivor’s Remorse” on Saturday, August 22nd.  The comedy block kicks off at 9 PM ET/PT with the premiere of “Blunt Talk,” the 10-episode first season of the half-hour scripted comedy series from MRC and executive produced by Seth MacFarlane, Jonathan Ames (creator and showrunner), Stephanie Davis and Tristram Shapeero. The laughs continue at 9:30 PM ET/PT with the sophomore season of “Survivor’s Remorse,” from executive producers Tom Werner, Maverick Carter, LeBron James, Mike O’Malley, Paul Wachter, Victor Levin and Hilton Smith. The second season of the half-hour scripted comedy series will feature 10 episodes – up from its six-episode first season.

About “Blunt Talk”
Set in Los Angeles, the story follows Walter Blunt, a British import intent on conquering the world of American cable news and the fallout from his well-intentioned, but mostly misguided decision-making, both on and off the air.

Through the platform of his nightly cable news show, Blunt is on a mission to impart his wisdom and guidance on how Americans should live, think and behave.  Besieged by network bosses, a dysfunctional news staff, numerous ex-wives and children of all ages, Blunt’s only support is the heavy-drinking, devoted manservant he transplanted from the U.K. to join him in Los Angeles.  The series is greenlit for a two-season, 20-episode commitment.

The cast is led by Patrick Stewart (X-Men franchise, Ted) in the role of Walter Blunt, Jacki Weaver (Silver Linings Playbook) as Rosalie, Blunt’s tough and motherly producer-manager and Adrian Scarborough (The King’s Speech) as Harry, Blunt’s manservant. Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em”) who was cast as Celia, Blunt’s senior producer and head writer, with Timm Sharp (“Enlightened”) who was cast as Jim, Blunt’s head writer, round out the cast.

MacFarlane and Fuzzy Door Productions, Inc. serve as executive producers.  Ames, who created the series, will also serve as executive producer, showrunner as well as a writer on the project.  Tristram Shapeero (“Community”) and Stephanie Davis (“Bored to Death”) serve as executive producers with Shapeero also serving as director. Stewart will also serve as producer on the series.

MRC, the studio behind MacFarlane’s directorial debut Ted, which is the highest grossing original comedy of all time worldwide, the highly anticipated sequel, Ted 2, and the award-winning series “House of Cards,” is best known as one of the most artist-friendly independent studios.
