JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales – A new Adult Swim series from the creator of Trap Universe, according to The AV Club: “There’s no better way to describe JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales than with this voiceover line from the trailer: “They’re not just Grimm… they’re grim… AS FUCK.” These are fairy tales with attitude, insert guitar wail over shots of blood and viscera, throw in an F-bomb, holy shit can you believe they put this on TV?! The basic premise is, well, exactly all of the above. Fairy tales, but naughty and weird. That’s it. That’s the deal. JJ Villard’s Fairy Tales debuts on May 10, and if you can hold on to your nards for that long, you’ll get to enjoy a profane cartoon featuring the voices of horror faves like Linda Blair, Robert Englund, Corey Feldman, Warwick Davis, and Jennifer Tilly.” More info, and that trailer, is here: https://news.avclub.com/adult-swim-drops-a-gnarly-little-trailer-for-jj-villard-1842617884

Red Dwarf – The Radio Times have published an early review which suggests the forthcoming feature length special isn’t all that special, and which ends with: “The end result is a good-but-not-great first stab at the feature-length format for Red Dwarf – The Promised Land is unlikely to convert anyone who’s found themselves immune to the show’s charms thus far, but it’s a reasonably rewarding outing for the faithful.” https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2020-03-31/red-dwarf-special-promised-land-review/
