TV’s Looking Has Been Cancelled, But The Boys Will Get A Wrap-Up Special

looking-s1-slideIt’s been a short and interesting run, bitHBO has announced that after two seasons, they won’t be renewing their gay-themed show Looking for a third outing. If you’re panicking that this means you’ll never find out what happens next for Patrick (Jonathan Groff), Agustin (Frankie J. Alvarez), Dom (Murray Bartlett), Kevin (Russell Tovye) and co., there is some small solace, as the TV network has promised that things will get wrapped up with a feature-length special.

The news isn’t too unexpected, as after decent ratings for Looking very first episode, the viewer numbers dropped and it’s never really recovered. It’s a shame, as its slightly wonky first few episodes seem to have put a lot of people off, meaning they’ve missed out on the fact that it’s improved significantly and its second season showed promise that it would become a truly excellent series – indeed its sophomore run got a decent amount of praise from critics.

To show how low things had dropped, just 298,000 US viewers tuned in for the recent season two finale, which is just over half the number who watched the final episode of Season 1.

At least we’re not being left completely high and dry and there will be a TV movie that will hopefully bring closure to the stories the the gay San Franciscans. That special is expected to air later this year.

New Poster For Disney’s Frozen Emerges

frozen-teaser-quadDisney is hoping that the audiences that flocked to Tangled will like their latest fairytale adventure, Frozen, when it opens this coming December. Now a new US quad poster has emerged, which is certainly a nice contrast to the balmy summer weather.

Here’s the synopsis: ‘Walt Disney Animation Studios, the studio behind “Tangled” and “Wreck-It Ralph,” presents “Frozen,” a stunning big-screen comedy adventure. Fearless optimist Anna (voice of Kristen Bell) sets off on an epic journey—teaming up with rugged mountain man Kristoff (voice of Jonathan Groff) and his loyal reindeer Sven—to find her sister Elsa (voice of Idina Menzel), whose icy powers have trapped the kingdom of Arendelle in eternal winter. Encountering Everest-like conditions, mystical trolls and a hilarious snowman named Olaf, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom.

‘The film is directed by Chris Buck (“Tarzan,” “Surf’s Up”) and Jennifer Lee (screenwriter, “Wreck-It Ralph”), and produced by Peter Del Vecho (“Winnie the Pooh,” “The Princess and the Frog”). Featuring music from Tony® winner Robert Lopez (“The Book of Mormon,” “Avenue Q”) and Kristen Anderson-Lopez (“In Transit”), “Frozen” is in UK cinemas in 3D on December 6, 2013.’
