The Blacklist – an American crime thriller television series that premiered on NBC on September 23, 2013, has been renewed, and is returning for the eighth season on the Novemver 13, 2020. With other details yet to be unveiled, it is believed Season 8 will start with the decimation that is Liz’s decision to side with Katarina Rostova — a person who has proven ruthless and diabolical, but who The Blacklist’s behind-the-scenes brass has characterized as trustworthy.

The seventh season of the American crime thriller television series was ordered on March 11, 2019. The season premiered on NBC on Friday, October 4, 2019 at 8.00 p.m. The season was originally set to contain 22 episodes. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic forced the show produced by Sony Pictures Television to shut down production On March 14, 2020; the season was cut to 19 episodes, with the season finale containing some animated sections to complete the episode.

The final episode utilizes animation to complete the episode, as it had been in the middle of filming when production was suspended. The actors were able to record dialogue for the animation from their homes.

The producers considered having the cast “read their lines while an old fashioned radio appeared on the TV screen, or just putting voiceover to still comic book frames” before settling on fully animated sequences. Thought bubbles and text boxes were also added “to help bridge the gap” between the animated sequences and the live action footage.

The show follows Raymond “Red” Reddington (James Spader), a former U.S. Navy officer turned high-profile criminal, who voluntarily surrenders to the FBI after eluding capture for decades. He tells the FBI that he has a list of the most dangerous criminals in the world that he has compiled over the years and is willing to inform on their operations in exchange for immunity from prosecution.

ENOCK DARKO: “I Relocated To Nigeria To Enhance My Movie Career

Published

Young Ghanaian actor and producer, Enock Darko who’s better known as ‘watabombshell’ is doing well in Nollywood. Enock left the shores of Ghana a few years ago to Nigeria in his quest to save his budding acting career.

“ I left to Nigeria to get roles to play in movies and the best part was I got accepted by Nollywood directors,” he said.

For most new movies being produced in Nigeria, Enoch is the face to see. He recently got featured in a movie called ‘Joro’, starring Nollywood star Destiny Etiko and Ghana’s own Toosweet Annan which got a lot of attention during the COVID-19 lockdown time. Enoch has acted alongside other Nollywood legends like Patience Ozokwo, Zack Orji amongst others and as if that’s not enough, he has hinted of a new movie coming out soon titled JEHOVAH WITNESS ft Osita Iheme (PAWPAW), produced by Uchenna Mbunabo.

Addressing the issue of Ghana’s failing movie industry, Enoch’s concern is on how young talents are not being allowed to showcase their talents and how the media is projecting foreign content and pushing Ghana’s to the background.

“I’m urging the Ghanaian government to ban all telenovela content being shown by the media houses to allow for more local content and also producers must work hard to save the Ghanaian movie industry” he added.

Enoch has upcoming projects like ‘The Couple’ and ‘Jehovah’s Witness’ coming soon amidst an epic series featuring a lot of Nollywood stars.

“I MAY DESTROY YOU: Michaela Coel Latest TV Series To Debut On DSTV – 1Magic On Aug. 26

Published

Writer and director Michaela Coel stars as Arabella, a celebrated young writer who is drugged and raped during a night out with friends — a fact she pieces together afterwards from the fragmented images coursing through her mind. Over 12 episodes that boldly dart back and forth in time, the series follows Arabella and her best friends Terry (Waruche Opia) and Kwame (Pappa Essiedu) as they wrestle with the aftermath of the assault.

“I May Destroy You” was inspired by Coel’s own experiences — not only as an assault survivor, but as the daughter of Ghanaian immigrants raised in working-class London and a creative person struggling to make a living by channeling her life into art. It has received ecstatic praise for its nuanced examination of sexual consent and the complications of race, gender, sexuality and class, as well as its authentic portrayal of contemporary, multicultural London.

Since the U.K. went into lockdown in late March, Coel — whose previous series, “Chewing Gum,” centered on the efforts of a 24-year-old religious woman to lose her virginity — has been holed up at home in East London, catching up on “Ozark” and making the odd loaf of vegan banana bread. But mostly she’s been working remotely on post-production on “I May Destroy You” and enjoying the socially distanced love the series has received.

“It’s required a lot of actors under their duvets trying to make soundproof rooms doing ADR. The morale was high the whole time, so I’m very grateful that we were able to finish it, and finish it with joy,” she told The Times by video conference call.
