Life-Size 2″ Starring Tyra Banks Is Headed to Freeform

life-size-sequel-confirmed

By: Amelia Fabiano

After seventeen years, the wait is over. Tyra Banks is officially returning for the sequel to her hit Disney TV movie, “Life-Size.”

The sequel, “Life-Size 2,” will be brought to the small screen by Freeform, a sister network to the Disney Channel. The sequel has been in talks for the past few years. “There is no one else that can play Eve but me, thank you very much,” Banks, who starred as iconic doll Eve in the original movie, said in 2015. “I’m just joking with you, but yes, I am going to be Eve.”

The premise of the sequel will be similar to its predecessor, only this time, Eve is all grown up and magically awoken to help a young woman learn to love again. The network described it as a “fun, edgy, modern Christmas movie.”

Lindsay Lohan played the doll’s owner in the 2000 movie, but no further casting has been announced for the sequel. “We have not talked about casting at all so I have no idea who is going to be the young person that will be the owner of Eve,” Banks said in 2015.

“Life-Size 2” is set to air in December 2018, during the network’s popular “25 Days of Christmas” month long special programming season.

Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them – except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from CBGBs to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco — told through the lives and music of the South Bronx kids who changed the city, and the world…forever.

 

CRASHING Season One Is An Impressive Debut

 

crashing-s1-sampling-hp-1349x758

By: Jeff Graham

HBO Just finished it’s first season run of CRASHING. The show, which aired this winter after GIRLS in what critics are calling the “Apatow-hour” on HBO, met with positive reviews in it’s first season.

As a panelist on Afterbuzz TV’s review panel for the show, I have some opinions on what I thought worked well, and what I’d like to see for the second season. Above all, CRASHING is Pete Holme’s show. It’s a perfect distilation of his voice as a comic, which is to say: sweet, goofy, earnest, and subtly hiding an appreciation for life’s complex depth. At it’s best, CRASHING allows Pete to explore life’s challenges with a perfect mix of joy and darkness.

For the second season, I’d appreciate a larger crop of developed supporting characters. Pete’s unfliching vision is both the shows strength and it’s weakness. There are moments in season 1 where Mr. Holmes isn’t quite able to shoulder the entire show on his own, and I suspect that other supporting characters would help to alleviate this problem.

All that being said, CRASHING is an impressive debut, and a great addition to HBO’s slate.
