THE DIRECT – Marvel Studio was set to start Phase Four with a bang, not just with their initial 2020 films Black Widow and The Eternals, but also with television shows produced exclusively for Disney+. The first Marvel Studios series, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, was set to release in August 2020, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped production in its tracks in early March.

While the series has been recently gearing up to complete filming, the likelihood that The Falcon and the Winter Soldier would be able to meet their release date was becoming more and more uncertain. Now, a new report seems to confirm the inevitable news.

NEWS
According to a report from Laughing Place, The Falcon and the Winter Soldier was not on the list of titles coming to Disney+ in August 2020. While Walt Disney Studios has yet to make an official statement concerning The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, it is expected that the show will not meet its initial August release window for the streaming service.

WHAT THIS MEANS
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier still needed to finish filming for a few days in the Czech Republic and in Atlanta, Georgia as well. While it’s unfortunate to see the show’s release officially be delayed, it was not a surprising outcome given that the series had yet to wrap principal photography.

It’s likely that the other Disney+ shows like WandaVision and Loki will also see some delays, as the Disney+ slate gets pushed back in the same way Marvel Studios’ film slate did back in April. This will give every series all the necessary time to finish filming and post-production, without having to be tied to a quickly approaching release window.

Delaying the Disney+ shows would also be necessary for the MCU’s timeline, given that the shows were created with the intentions of both affecting and being affected by the events of the films. Marvel Studios plans everything out to a tee, and while it may be a few more months before fans can see these highly-anticipated shows, there’s no doubt it will all pay off in the end.

DISNEY INSIDER – After Marvel Studios’ Disney+ series WandaVision was moved up to December 2020, the series hit a major snag, as did the rest of Hollywood due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Major film and television productions are slowly been given the green light to restart production again. According to a Facebook post by Tampa Bay Comic Con, Paul Bettany had to cancel his appearance due to being called back to resume WandaVision filming in July, the cast and crew had a wrap party back in March, but work still needs to be done, which includes reshoots.

“We finally received word from Paul Bettany’s representation, and unfortunately Paul had to cancel his appearance at TBCC this year due being called back by Disney for WandaVision filming in July, in Los Angeles. We’re working on guest additions!”

The studio has been working on post-production during the Hollywood shut down. If work indeed continues on small shoots in July, that would mean the series could still hit it’s December 2020 release.

Bettany reprises the role of Vision and Elizabeth Olsen returns to her role of Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, as they become the perfect married 50’s, nuclear family.

Teyonah Parris will also appear on the series as the grown-up version of Monica Rambeau, who was introduced to audiences in Captain Marvel. Kathryn Hahn is playing a nosey neighbor reportedly named Agatha. Josh Stamberg will also appear alongside Randall Park as secret agents.

According to recent reports Doctor Strange himself, Benedict Cumberbatch was on set for the last week of filming for WandaVision, which lines up with another story reported stating longtime Doctor Strange villain Nightmare would be the antagonist for the series, as well as Marvel Studios CCO Kevin Feige previously stating the film will lead directly into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Earlier this week, A report surfaced that Evan Peters (American Horror Story) joined the series last summer in an unknown but a key role and shot his scenes towards the end of last year. Fans are now speculating what his role could be; the popular but least likely guess is Wanda’s brother Pietro aka Quicksilver, a role he played in Fox’s X-Men universe and was played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

The series is also rumored to have shot in front of a live studio audience, and will pay homage to the multi-camera sitcom comedies throughout television history, including I Love Lucy.

WandaVision is expected to make its debut on Disney+ later this year.

THE VERGE: Marvel Studios used its big Super Bowl advertising spot to quickly tease three upcoming Disney+ series: Falcon and Winter Soldier, Loki, and WandaVision.

There wasn’t much footage from any of the series, but there was enough glimpses to tease fans. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Anthony Mackie’s Sam “Falcon” Wilson pick up Captain America’s shield and maneuver around with it. The series picks up where that arc ended, as Steve Rogers’ best friends try to navigate a world he’s no longer in. The show brings back Mackie’s Wilson and Sebastian Stan’s Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Avengers: Endgame ended with Steve Rogers handing over his Captain America shield to Sam. The teaser also showed a glimpse of Zemo’s return, the villain made famous in Captain America: Civil War.

WandaVision’s footage showed off scenes of Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Paul Bettany’s Vision interacting with each other in a house. The show was previously teased at Disney’s biennial D23 convention as a surreal sitcom-like take on their relationship. Loki had the least amount of footage, but showed actor Tom Hiddleston back in the role.

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier is one of two big Marvel series hitting Disney+ this year. The company previously announced that WandaVision would receive a 2020 release date, moving up from its original 2021 window. Both WandaVision and Falcon and the Winter Soldier will tie into the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Much like what The Mandalorian was to Lucasfilm, all eyes will be on The Falcon and the Winter Soldier as Marvel’s first big Disney+ series. Since Disney has launched Disney+, big changes behind-the-scenes have shed light on how important the integration between the Marvel Cinematic Universe and the TV shows will be going forward. Kevin Feige, the visionary behind the MCU, now oversees all of Marvel Entertainment. Prior to the Disney+ launch, Jeph Loeb oversaw the various Marvel shows on various Disney networks, and streaming services like Hulu and Netflix. That changed late last year.

Now, Feige oversees everything Marvel, both cinematically and on the TV side. The Falcon and the Winter Soldier will be joined by the aforementioned WandaVision this year, followed by Loki, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Moonknight in the coming years.

Sad news!!! I hope they find another network to pick up the series!

The social media giant is scaling back on the number of scripted series for its streaming platform.

DEADLINE – Facebook Watch is paring back on scripted series, canceling Limetown after a single season and Sorry for Your Loss after two.

The moves come as the social media giant is paring back on scripted shows for its streaming platform, which have had some trouble breaking through despite critical acclaim for Sorry for Your Loss and generally positive notices for Limetown. Scripted series already ordered — including the third season of Real Bros of Simi Valley and Blumhouse’s Sacred Lies, which is set to premiere Feb. 20 — will still run on Facebook Watch, but the streamer will redouble its efforts in unscripted programming.

The Jada Pinkett Smith-hosted Red Table Talk has earned a Daytime Emmy nomination and regularly racks up 5 million or more views, per the company’s public stats (like other streamers, Facebook Watch doesn’t release detailed viewer data). The service’s unscripted offerings also include Returning the Favor starring Mike Rowe, the docuseries 9 Months With Courteney Cox and the talker Steve on Watch with Steve Harvey, which debuted Jan. 6.

Based on a narrative podcast of the same name, Limetown stars Jessica Biel as a journalist investigating a mass disappearance at a neuroscience research facility. Biel also executive produced the series along with her Iron Ocean partner Michelle Purple, podcast creators Zack Akers and Skip Bronkie and Midnight Radio’s Josh Appelbaum, André Nemec, Jeff Pinkner and Scott Rosenberg.

Sorry for Your Loss stars Elizabeth Olsen as a young widow who is trying to rebuild her life following her husband’s death. She also exec produced alongside creator Kit Steinkellner, Robin Lizzy Weiss, James Ponsoldt, Marc Turtletaub, Peter Saraf, Cynthia Pett, Brad Petrigala and Jon Liebman.

Facebook Watch’s retrenchment in unscripted somewhat mirrors that of YouTube, which scaled down its scripted offerings as it switched from a premium to an ad-supported model for original programming. Both companies sought to leverage their massive user bases for original programming, but with a handful of exceptions, those shows had a hard time breaking through in the Peak TV era.

Deadline first reported the news.

Posted on November 24, 2019 / by AliKat in Press, Sorry For Your Loss

Elizabeth Olsen plays a young widow in this thoughtful and loving series about navigating grief.

 

VOX – In Watch This, Vox critic at large Emily VanDerWerff tells you what she’s watching on TV — and why you should watch it, too. Read the archives here. This week: Sorry for Your Loss, which airs on Facebook Watch.

Every article about the TV show Sorry for Your Loss must cover the following bullet points, as though they are recorded in the Constitution:

  •  It’s a brilliantly devastating little drama, full of light and love
  • Its amazing cast is anchored by the sweet and soulful Elizabeth Olsen
  • It airs on Facebook Watch, so good luck finding it [insert boilerplate about how Facebook is destroying the planet]

All of the above, so far as it goes, is true. Sorry for Your Loss is a terrific show — one of TV’s best — but the fact that it’s sequestered within a section of Facebook that seems almost intentionally difficult to find means that extremely few people have seen it. I watched the entire second season via screener and I could not possibly imagine how anyone would organically stumble upon the show on Facebook, short of just Googling it.

And that’s why I’m writing about Sorry for Your Loss and linking to it here — I really want people to watch it. What the show does is in short supply on TV right now, and if it doesn’t get a third season (season two just ended on Tuesday, November 19), I might have to finally get mad at Mark Zuckerberg.

So what does it do that’s so unique and interesting? I’m glad you asked.

Sorry for Your Loss somehow turns the debilitating process of grief into a TV show

When I first learned the premise of Sorry for Your Loss — a young widow named Leigh (Olsen) tries to live in the wake of her husband’s death — I had the same thought that many others probably did: How in the world is that enough for a TV show? A movie, sure. A novel, absolutely. A stage play, I’m writing it right now! But a TV show? One that will air week after week after week? It can’t possibly work.

I was wrong. What makes Sorry for Your Loss so good is that it understands grief isn’t a neat arc with a beginning and an end. It’s a process of atomization. An incident happens and your whole body feels like it’s engulfed in the flames of a nuclear blast. But with every passing day, it dissipates a little more and a little more. You’re able to do more, to get out of bed, to resume your life. But you always live with the residue of what happened. Your body is now radioactive, no matter how much the most immediately deadly elements dull with time. You learn how to live with grief; you don’t learn how to defeat it.
