**** DAVID SELBY IN “NEWNESS” MOVIE AND IN “LEGION” TV SERIES HOME VIDEO RELEASE

 

--- DAVID (Quentin) is “Artie Hallock” in the new Netflix “romance drama” movie NEWNESS. Brief summary: “In contemporary Los Angeles, 2 millennials navigating a social media-driven hook-up culture begin to navigate a relationship that begins to push both emotional and physical boundaries.”

NEWNESS Official Site: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt6408226/

 

Variety 1-22-18: It screened at the acclaimed Sundance Film Festival in January. “A swanky verité love story about two L.A. millennials who meet on a hookup app and have to decide if they want to hook up forever…. A drama about love in the age of the endless sex-shopping-mall hookup app, is a movie that wants to look and feel like ‘life’ …. Do open relationships work? In rare cases, yes, but for the vast majority of us, open relationships are doomed to crash and burn. Regardless of how much we’ve actually tried the experiment ourselves we’ve all seen movies about it. At first, it looks like freedom, but then, of course! it breeds jealousy, possessiveness, mistrust. NEWNESS explores the lures — and pitfalls — of an open relationship in the new culture of the digital meat market.”

Full review at: http://variety.com/2017/film/reviews/newness-review-sundance-1201966751/

 

--- DAVID also has the recurring role of “Brubaker” in FX Network’s science fiction LEGION-Season 1, now on DVD & Blu Ray. He appears in Episodes 1, 3, and 5. The show premiered 2-8-17 (SHADOWGRAM UPDATEs #392 / #393).  David also appears in LEGION’s new Season 2.

 

Los Angeles Times 3-25-18: LEGION “reinvents the superhero show with a trippy take on one of Marvel Comics’ strangest characters (who is) a spookily powerful telekinetic mutant who can’t always tell when he’s reading minds and manipulating matter or when he’s suffering from mental illness “ It has “a great supporting cast…(and) eye-popping action sequences that a series like this demands, put into a story that’s mostly about how it feels to be different.”

 

Please share with SHADOWGRAM any media publicity, reviews, or other coverage, etc. for SPIDORA, LEGION, and NEWNESS. Please include the source’s full name and date, Send all info to SHADOWGRAM’s e- or postal- mail addresses found in this Update.

 

**** SHADOWGRAM SOON TO PREMIERE-ANNOUNCE DS DOCUMENTARY DETAILS

 

Recent SG Updates reported a new full-length documentary will premiere this year. SG Updates will be FIRST to announce confirmed location(s), date(s), expected DS guests, and other details.

This highly-anticipated documentary thoroughly explores DS’ history, popularity, and more, including the story of creator/producer DAN CURTIS.  It extensively chronicles DS’ development, TV broadcasts and motion picture history, media and public response over the years, and much more. Now in its final stages, it includes a range of candid commentary from DS cast/crew members, entertainment industry and media personnel, selected representative scenes, and other features.

 

Anticipated activities: Guest/audience Q&A sessions and presentations, autograph/photo opportunities, unique and new DS collectibles and memorabilia available for purchase, charity auction offering rare and special items, and more.

 

DARK SHADOWS is nearing its 52nd anniversary. Debuting on ABC-TV’s daytime schedule June 27, 1966, weekday episodes aired to April 2, 1971. Breaking the then-standard “daytime soap opera” mold, it featured an array of supernatural storylines, characters, time-travel, and often-daily “cliffhanger” episodes. Viewers were young children to seniors; its huge popularity led to 2 unprecedented major movies (1970-71). Within a few years after its daytime cancellation, it uniquely generated: National and some international TV syndication; all 1225 episodes with many extra features released on VHS video, then DVD, and now streaming; a 1991 primetime NBC-TV series; a 2004 proposed new TV pilot; an ongoing series of new audio drama stories on CD recorded by many of the original DS cast; a 2012 major movie shown internationally; a vast range of specific DS merchandise, books, and collectibles; ongoing fan creativity of all kinds since the 1970s; and much more. For 40+ years, fans and DS personnel have gathered at the Official DARK SHADOWS Festival weekend conventions, special presentations, commemorative celebrations, ocean cruises, and more. Like its “eternal” characters, fans of all ages and backgrounds are found worldwide, and DS fandom has continued to thrive for 51+ years.

 

**** UPCOMING NEW DS COLLECTIBLE MUSICAL SNOW GLOBE - & MORE

 

SG Updates recently reported an upcoming special DS collectible: A classic musical snow globe. It features a detailed model of the iconic “Collinwood” mansion and plays “Quentin’s Theme”/“Shadows of the Night.”

 

Plans also are currently underway for another new, unique DS item. SG Updates will share all details as they are finalized.

 

**** DARK SHADOWS FEATURED IN RECENT ISSUE #140 OF SCI FI MAGAZINE

 

The publication’s “Time Warp” section includes an article about the DARK SHADOWS TV series and movies. It also features numerous DS photos. The new DOCTOR WHO is pictured on the magazine cover.  A question in the article asks reader to pick “What would you watch on TV in 1968?” DS was among the answer options.

 

**** DARK SHADOWS Q&A FEATURED IN 2 RECENT ONLINE QUIZ ES ON 1960s TV SHOWS

 

---  ME-TV’s website recently posted a nostalgic quiz: “What Would You Watch on TV in 1968?”

 

Description: “What a year! And they call today the golden age of television. Bah! The schedule was stacked with classics in 1968 – stacked! So many of our favorites were on the air that year. Which makes it a particular hard year to play ‘What Would You Watch?’ There were no VCRs, no DVRs. You had to pick and stick. So, what would you have watched?”

 

Listed by a single specific broadcast time per Saturday to Monday nights, the quiz offers 3 choices for each timeslot. Pictured at 4:00 is a b&w photo of some of the DS cast. The question/answer choices:

“Good news – Monday is a holiday! You have no school…. It’s now 4PM and you’ve been watching TV all day. Hey, it’s a day off. What’s on now?”

 

Dark Shadows (ABC)

The Match Game (NBC)

Art Linkletter’s House Party (CBS)

 

Online votes for each option were listed as percentages. DS: 57%. Match Game: 34%/. House Party: 8%.

The full quiz is at: ttps://metv.com/quiz/pick-what-would-you-watch-on-tv-in-1968

 

--- PLEASE NOTE: The following online quiz was on the MeTV site. However, DARK SHADOWS is not on the actual MeTV broadcast schedule.

 

--- Zoo.com quiz title: “We'll Give You Three Characters, You Give Us the '60s TV Show”

Description: “The 1960s was a rich decade for television, from Westerns to dramas to situation comedies that are now considered classics. See if you can identify the '60s show from just three characters.”

 

Question #24: What show featured Barnabas, Quentin, and Angelique?

Question #24 Hint: Would you turn on the light please? It's spooky in here.

Dr. Kildare

Hong Kong

Gidget

Dark Shadows

 

Answer Explanation: “In the late 1960s, teenage girls all over the country raced home from school in order to watch ‘Dark Shadows.’ The campy horror/soap opera centers on the wealthy Collins family, whose estate is soon populated by witches, werewolves, vampires, and cheap scenery that routinely fell down during the episode.”
