A couple cast additions…Katy O’Brian, who recurred on this past season of The Walking Dead as a member of the Saviors who was captured and held at Hilltop, will join the upcoming fifth season of Z Nation as new regular character Georgia “George” St. Clair, a leader in NewMerica who 8 years prior as a college freshman led a group of students and teachers to safety in NewMerica. O’Brian also appeared in episodes of How To Get Away With Murder and Halt And Catch Fire.
Deadline reports that Selma Blair (Anger Management) will join the upcoming Netflix sci-fi series Another Life, starring Battlestar Galactica and Longmire star Katee Sackhoff.
Blair will recur in the role of Harper Glass, a media influencer “who uses journalism, social media and keen intelligence in an attempt to break one of the biggest stories in human history.” The show follows astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) on a mission to find extraterrestrial life.
The Amazon series based on the 1999 hit sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest is on hold according to writer Paul Scheer, but he is confident it will proceed.
According to an interview with The Wrap, Scheer says the show is “in a little bit of a hold pattern,” due at least in part to the June firing of former Paramount TV president Amy Powell for racially insensitive comments.With any regime change, there is also uncertainty over projects greenlit under the previous management, but it seems at least in this case there is a good chance that things will still proceed once management shakes out.
