“Love in War” (‘HEELS’ Main Title Theme) by Jeff Cardoni & Ben Bridwell Released

Love in War - Heels - Season 1The main title theme “Love in War” and select tracks from episode one of the upcoming Starz wrestling drama Heels—from writer and creator Michael Waldron (Loki, Rick and Morty) and showrunner Mike O’Malley (Shameless, Survivor’s Remorse)—are available for pre-save today, ahead of Sunday’s August 15th series premiere. Weekly episodic playlists featuring a combination of score and source music will be released on Spotify and Apple Music, in conjunction with the episode air dates.

For “Love in War,” series composer Jeff Cardoni (Silicon Valley, The Kominsky Method) collaborated with Ben Bridwell, frontman of the Grammy-nominated American rock group Band of Horses. The main musical theme wasn’t originally in the Cardoni’s line of duties, until music supervisor Jonathan Leahy suggested that he and Bridwell pair up. The artists wrote the song together and Ben lent his vocals, resulting in a soaring main title theme that is emotional, uplifting, and poignant.

Heels is a story about the men and women who chase their dreams in the world of small town pro wrestling. Set in a close-knit Georgia community, it follows a family-owned wrestling promotion as two brothers and rivals war over their late father’s legacy. In the ring, somebody must play the good guy and somebody must play their nemesis, the heel. But in the real world, those characters can be hard to live up to — or hard to leave behind.

Mark Millar Confirms Oscar-Winning Writer For WB Nemesis Movie

Comic book superstar Mark Millar – creator of Kick-Ass, Jupiter’s Legacy, The Secret Service & Kingsman – has confirmed to retailer Forbidden Planet that Emerald Fennell – winner of the 2021 Oscar for Original Screenplay (Promising Young Woman) – will pen the script for Millar’s hotly-anticipated Warner Bros adaptation of his critically acclaimed comic book, Nemesis.

Speaking exclusively to Forbidden Planet TV, Millar said: “Emerald Fennell, who just won an Oscar for best screenplay for Promising Young Woman, has just delivered the latest draft of the Nemesis screenplay, which is extremely cool, especially after the initial development of the movie by the late Tony Scott, who established some amazing visual ideas for the movie!”

Nemesis is a tale of one man with a plan for vengeance! Who is Nemesis? He is a son of privilege, an inheritor of billions from his deceased parents. He owns a fleet of the finest cars and a hangar full of planes, and has countless technological gadgets at his command. He’s the ultimate super-villain fighting relentlessly for a nihilsitic cause in which he believes.

Forbidden Planet TV host Andrew Sumner said: “This interview with Mark Millar is another example of the pop culture status that enables Forbidden Planet to attract high-profile creatives from the comic book and entertainment industry, whether it’s for an interview for our newly-launched online TV show, a store signing or an exclusive edition. Fans won’t want to miss out on this special interview, as Millar introduces his new Netflix show Jupiter’s Legacy, chats about a new Netflix spy show he’s developing, previews the latest Kingsman movie and reveals an all-new anime adaption of his comic book Supercrooks.”

“The Garcias” Formerly Known as “The Brothers Garcia” Gets 10-Episode Reboot to Air on HBO MAX

Pre-Production Starts Now with New Cadence Productions

New Cadence Productions (NCP) announced today that they will re-boot the hit series “The Brothers Garcia” with “The Garcias,” featuring the entire original cast who are all grown up with diverse families of their own.

The original series “The Brothers Garcia” ran on Nickelodeon for 50 episodes from 2000-2004. It also aired in 40+ countries around the world. The new series will be shot in the Riviera Maya, Mexico, specifically in a town called Puerto Aventuras, as well as in eco-theme parks Xcaret, Xplor and Xel-Ha. These four locations will add a unique production value to the show.

“The Garcias” is a slice of life of an American family that just happens to be Latino. By shooting the show in San Antonio, Texas and Mexico, the series juxtaposes an American Latino family in Mexico.

“We want audiences to see that we are totally American and part of the ‘new mainstream,’” exclaimed NCP Partner and show creator Jeff Valdez. “There are no themes of narcos, border walls, gang bangers or maids anywhere in this series – a fact that we are very proud of and hope that Hollywood will follow suit. We are extremely proud of the fact that this show will easily achieve 90+% positive Latino inclusion both in front of and behind the camera.”

“We are excited to be partnering with WarnerMedia, who believes in the project and ordered 10 episodes,” states Sol Trujillo, NCP Partner and global media-communications and technology icon. “The themes of our new series are aspirational and universal. “The Garcias” will be in English and, of course, every episode will end with the trademark, ‘Todo para la familia,’ which means ‘Everything for the family.’”x
