New report details how HBO and ‘Big Little Lies’ producers undermined director Andrea Arnold



Big Little Lies Season 2

Little did Andrea Arnold know that when she first signed on to direct the eagerly awaited second season of the hit drama Big Little Lies that HBO and showrunner David E. Kelley would later plot to take away most — if not at all — creative control she might have over the show, a new report from IndieWire claims.

Sources close to the production of the Emmy-winning series tell IndieWire that “there was a dramatic shift in late 2018 as the show was yanked away from Arnold, and creative control was handed over to executive producer and Season 1 director Jean-Marc Vallée,” who — at that point — had essentially become the de facto director of season 2 as well.

But the decision to hand over the reins of the show from Arnold back to Vallée was not a sudden one. At the time Big Little Lies was about to begin shooting its second season, Vallée was in post-production on HBO’s limited series Sharp Objects and the producers needed to find a replacement that could fill his shoes — that’s when they hired Arnold, who was under the impression that she would virtually have free rein over every aspect of the show.

While the choice to hire Arnold, an auteur whose credits include films such as American Honey and Fish Tank, was a rather unconventional one, the creative team behind the show saw her as the perfect fit because they believed her work would be easy enough for Vallée and his editing team to “shape into the show’s distinctive style in post-production.”

It wasn’t until Arnold began post-production with her editing team in London that the plan for Vallée to take over began to hatch, with the show’s entire operation suddenly moving from London to Montreal — where Vallée and his own editorial team were based — and 17 days worth of reshoots being ordered in which Vallée would have full control over everything being shot. The experience, according to sources close to Arnold, was “devasting” and left her “heartbroken.”

When asked about the report, a rep for HBO emailed Silver Screen Beat the following statement, which doesn’t seem to deny any of the claims made in the story: “There wouldn’t be a Season 2 of Big Little Lies without Andrea Arnold. We at HBO and the producers are extremely proud of her work. As with any television project, the executive producers work collaboratively on the series and we think the final product speaks for itself.”

As its ratings continue to grow, HBO renews the teen drama ‘Euphoria’ for a second season




Just mere weeks after debuting its first episode, the hit teen drama series Euphoria has been renewed for a second season at HBO, the premium cable network announced Thursday. The show, which airs on Sunday nights, is created and written by Sam Levinson and stars Zendaya.

Euphoria creator Sam Levinson has built an incredible world with an extraordinary cast led by the supremely talented Zendaya. We are so grateful that he chose HBO as the home for this groundbreaking series,” said Francesca Orsi, EVP, HBO programming. “We look forward to following these complex characters as their journeys continue through the challenging world they inhabit.”

So far, the series has been a ratings juggernaut for HBO, especially on its digital platforms, where it averages more than 5 million viewers per episode, in addition to the 563,000 viewers it manages to pull in during initial telecasts, the network says.

Euphoria stars Zendaya as Rue Bennett, a 17-year-old drug addict who’s just gotten out of rehab and is struggling to make sense of her future when she meets Jules Vaughn (Hunter Schafer), a trans girl who she befriends and navigates the minefield of drugs, sex, identity, trauma, social media, love, and friendship at their school with.

The show is produced by A24 and executive produced by Levinson along with Ravi Nandan, Kevin Turen, Drake, Future the Prince, Hadas Mozes Lichtenstein, Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, Tmira Yardeni, Mirit Toovi, Yoram Mokady, Gary Lennon, and Jim Kleverweis.

Zack Snyder partners with Jay Olivia for anime series inspired by Norse mythology at Netflix



Zack Snyder

Zack Snyder will make his first foray into television with an all-new anime series set in the vast world of Norse mythology, further expanding his relationship with streaming giant Netflix, for whom he is currently writing, directing, and producing the zombie thriller Army of the Dead.

Snyder will serve as the showrunner, director, and executive producer for the upcoming series, which he is co-creating along with his creative partner Jay Olivia. The duo previously collaborated on DC Universe movies such as Justice League, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Man of Steel.

Deborah and Zack Snyder will produce the series alongside Wesley Coller via Stone Quarry Animation, their production company’s newest label with Olivia, who is currently in production on Netflix’s original anime series Trese.

“Zack Snyder’s innovation in visual storytelling has pushed the industry forward and established him as one of the most distinctive filmmakers of his generation,” said Netflix’s head of anime programming John Derderian.

He added, “We are beyond excited to partner with him and his exceptional team to bring the iconic characters and stories of Norse mythology to life in his inimitable style.”

Netflix has not yet announced a premiere date or episode count for the new series.
