Exclusive Video Interview: Stars & EPs Talk Irreverent, Now Streaming on Peacock

IrreverentIrreverent premieres today on Peacock. The series follows a criminal mediator, Paulo, who on the run from the Chicago mob, assumes the identity of Reverend Mackenzie Boyd (Colin Donnell) and flees to the small Australian reef community of Clump in Far North Queensland, posing as clergy. Things there, however, are not what he expected when he finds himself in a small town with no phone or internet, and the townspeople are desperate for a leader. Can he keep up the illusion and settle into the new life? What starts off as an escape and pretending to care may just become a bit real for the criminal.

SciFi Vision recently spoke with members of the cast as well as the showrunner and executive producers about the new series.

The idea for the series came from showrunner Paddy Macrae, whose father is a church minister. “I grew up with my mom and my dad and my sisters and my brother in a very, very remote church, in a little house right next to a church, where the Minister is relied on for absolutely everything,” Macrae explained to SciFi Vision. “They're involved with the sports in the town, with every community event, every wedding, every funeral, every time there's a police matter…I thought [about how] I grew up in a small community. I love the sense of community and family around people. So, I wanted to make a show about community, and I thought, ‘What better place to put it than a small church?’…I didn't want to make a show about religion so much as about people and about connection.”

We are the Strongest Thing Together - The Walking Dead 11x24, Rest in Peace - Review

The Walking Dead“[Despite the upcoming spin-offs] it ends with a really definitive conclusion for both the series and then each individual character.”
--(Scott Gimple on the series finale, interview with Entertainment Weekly, 25 October 2022)

The first stories most Western children hear end with happily ever after, and that phrase settles into their subconscious as the model for what an ending should look like—an ending in life as much as in fiction. With maturity comes the understanding that happily ever after is as fantastic an element of those stories as are the dragons and fairies. Nonetheless, fiction, for adults as well as children, exists not only to reflect reality, but also to redress it. Stories hold up a mirror, and are, too, a window into somewhere else: a place not subject to the whims of fate, but controlled by storytellers.

Exclusive Video Interview: Colette Dalal Tchantcho Costars in Dangerous Liaisons

Dangerous LiasonsWith its new series, Dangerous Liaisons, Starz takes on a well-known story from a fresh new angle. 

Since its publication in 1782, the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses has been adapted dozens of times. Modern audiences are probably most familiar with 1988’s Oscar-winning Dangerous Liaisons, which starred Glenn Close and John Malkovitch as the Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont, bitter exes who use sex and secrets to manipulate and destroy their fellow aristocrats.

But the Starz production is not a retelling; rather, it’s a prequel. Throughout the first season (and presumably the second; it has already been renewed), we see happy couple Camille and Pascal (played by Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton) take the first steps toward becoming the Marquise and Vicomte. It all starts with a collection of sexy letters that fall into the wrong hands, setting the stage for blackmail.

Interview: The Walking Dead's Gilliam, Marquand, Payton, & Ridloff on Their Characters' Journeys

The Walking DeadTomorrow, the hugely popular series, The Walking Dead, takes its final bow as the last episode airs. Earlier in the week, SciFi Vision spoke with cast members of the series and asked them to look back at their characters’ journeys and talk about what they felt was the most defining moment of the series for their character and how it changed them.

For Seth Gilliam, who plays Father Gabriel in the series, it was when he lost his vision in his right eye. “It seems to coincide with him seeing things a lot clearer and being a little more devout in his belief in himself and his decision-making process and his courage level and his conviction levels,” the actor told SciFi Vision. “I think he went partially blind and gained a bit more insight into himself.”

“It's always been Shiva for Ezekiel,” said Khary Payton about his character’s tiger, “because, to me, Shiva dying, it coincided with Ezekiel losing half of his Kingdom in the war, in all out war, and I think he has been fighting to come back from that ever since…She was always, for me, the embodiment of the Kingdom itself. So, when [he] was grieving her and mourning her, it was Ezekiel mourning his people and his worth as a leader, and as a person, for thinking that the power of positive thinking means that everything's always going to be okay, and coming to find that really, it's about persevering. It's not that everything's going to be okay; it's how you get through and still make life worth living.”

Interview: The Walking Dead's McDermitt, Matsuura, Shaw, & Robins Look Back

The Walking DeadTomorrow night marks the end of an era when the hugely popular series, The Walking Dead, airs for the final time. To promote the series finale, SciFi Vision caught up with cast members and asked them to look back at their characters’ journeys and talk about what the defining moment was that changed their characters and how.

For Josh McDermitt, this season his character Eugene was most affected by finding out the truth about Stephanie/Max. “[I]t's just finding out the truth about the decoy Stephanie (Chelle Ramos), who turned out to be Shira, and who Max (Margot Bingham) really was,” the actor explained to SciFi Vision. “I think that that brought him down to his lowest point, but then meeting Max kind of brought him up again and gave him a new outlook on life…When he came to the Commonwealth, it was definitely when he felt like all hope was lost that he saw this little tiny light off in the distance, and that light has grown to then shine the light on all the misdeeds and the bad things going on in the Commonwealth.”

For Eleanor Matsuura, who plays Yumiko, it was finding her brother Tomi (Ian Anthony Dale)’s picture on the wall. “It was the beginning of drawing everyone into the Commonwealth by virtue of making the group that I was with stay in that moment,” said the actress. “It was this glimpse into her past, this pull that was keeping her from leaving with the group, an opportunity to sort of see where she came from. How that's unfolded in this season with the courtroom stuff and representing Eugene, it felt like the past and the present were all just brought together.”
