DEADLINE – Starz has teamed with BBC to co-produce the limited series Howards End, based on the classic E.M. Forster novel with Oscar-nominated Manchester by the Sea screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan writing the TV adaptation. Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), Matthew Macfadyen (Ripper Street) and Tracey Ullman (Tracey Ullman’s Show) have been tapped to star in the project, originally greenlighted by BBC One in December 2015. Hettie Macdonald (White Girl) will direct the four-part series that will air on BBC One in the UK and Starz in the U.S. Howards End will film in and around London.
Howards End explores the changing landscape of social and class divisions in turn-of-the-century England through the prism of three families: the intellectual and idealistic Schlegels, the wealthy Wilcoxes from the world of business and the working-class Basts. Playground is executive producing in association with City Entertainment and KippSter Entertainment.
Atwell will play Margaret Schlegel, Macfadyen will portray Henry Wilcox, and Ullman will play Aunt Juley Mund.
“Starz continues our commitment to bring quality drama to the screen with Howards End, and we’re delighted to once again work in partnership with the BBC and Colin Callender on this literary period piece,” said Carmi Zlotnik, President of Programming for Starz.
Callendar also is producing The Missing and The White Queen franchise for Starz — both back for second installments. He executive produces Howards End with City Entertainment’s Joshua D. Maurer (Papillon) and Alixandre Witlin (The Last Tycoon) and KippSter Entertainment’s David A. Stern (The Last Tycoon) as well as with Playground’s Sophie Gardiner (Eureka Street) and Scott Huff (The Missing) and Lucy Richer for the BBC. Laura Hastings-Smith (Hunger) is producing.
Said BBC executive producer Richer, “Kenneth Lonergan is one of our truly great contemporary voices, and his adaptation of this adored timeless classic will surprise and delight a whole new audience with its timely and relevant themes.”
I’ve just added high-quality screen captures of Hayley as Hayes Morrison in the last two episode of Conviction, respectively entitled “Enemy Combatant” and “Past, Prologue & What’s to Come”. Head over to our gallery to check these out:
Sorry for the delay, but I have now added screen captures of the tenth episode of Conviction to our gallery. High-quality stills of the show’s season finale have been added as well. The episode, untitled “Past, Prologue & What’s to Come”, will air on January 29 on ABC.
“Past, Prologue & What’s to Come” – Hayes revisits the failed case of Gerald Harris from her days as a defense attorney – the very case where she met Wallace nearly a decade earlier. Harris was found guilty of murdering his wife despite Hayes’ belief in his innocence due to Wallace unearthing Gerald’s darkest secret. Meanwhile, a member of the CIU team is forced to revisit their illicit actions in the controversial Rodney Landon case. In the end, Hayes and Wallace’s future, as well as that of the CIU team, hang in the balance.
I’ve just updated our gallery with high-quality stills of the two last episodes of Conviction, respectively entitled ‘Black Orchid’ and ‘Enemy Combatant’. Synopses can be found below.
“Black Orchid” – While Hayes and Wallace struggle to balance their professional and personal lives, they are summoned to a crime scene that fits the M.O. of the infamous “Black Orchid Killer.” Is the latest murder the work of a copycat? Or is the man now in prison for the earlier crimes actually innocent? As the investigation accelerates, the CIU team, spearheaded by unlikely serial-killer expert Tess, closes in on a suspect who may have committed all the murders – but will it be too late?
“Enemy Combatant” – Former President Morrison pays Hayes an unexpected visit and lobbies her (and CIU) to take on the case of Omar Abbas, a Muslim-American citizen held for years without trial in a military facility for allegedly planning a chemical attack on Manhattan. But taking on the federal war on terror is a hot-button issue, and Hayes and the CIU find themselves battling the authorities in their search for the truth. Meanwhile, just as Hayes and Wallace become more comfortable with their relationship, her father raises questions about the couple’s long-term viability.
High-quality screen captures of Hayley in the latest two Conviction episodes, respectively entitled ‘#StayWoke’ and ‘A Simple Man’, have been added to our gallery. Check them out by clicking on the thumbnails below:
The first stills of Hayley in the ninth episode of Conviction have just been revealed. The episode, entitled ‘A Different Kind of Death’, will air on ABC on December 5.
Wallace brings the case of a death-row inmate, Earl Slavitt, to the CIU. Earl was convicted of murdering federal prosecutor Tom Simon, one of Wallace’s best friends. Simon did not believe in the death penalty, and Wallace, along with Simon’s widow, want to ensure that Earl did in fact commit the crime. With only days left before the execution, the CIU team shifts into high gear, looking for possible errors in the case. Instead, they uncover cracks in Simon’s reputation. Hayes and Wallace are challenged both professionally and personally, as the case draws to a stunning conclusion.
The first stills of Hayley in the eighth episode of Conviction have just been unveiled. The episode, entitled ‘Bad Deals’, is set to air on ABC on November 28. Head over to our gallery to discover the 12 stills.
CIU revisits the case of Sierra Macy, a teenage girl who was kidnapped ten years ago and assumed dead—until she manages to escape her captor’s home after he suffers a heart attack and dies. Sam, one of the original prosecutors, steadfastly believes that the right man was convicted: Sierra’s former teacher Josh Fleck. Sam’s undeniable conflict of interest has Hayes second-guessing her decision to keep him on the CIU review of the case. Meanwhile, Hayes is determined to intercede on Wallace’s behalf – and against his wishes – in an investigation into his professional misconduct. Her stunning discoveries about quid pro quos that Wallace brokered in her cocaine bust and an earlier case they worked back in Chicago force the two to re-examine their personal and professional relationships.
