BBC Drama ‘Baptiste’ Returns For What Could Be Its Final Season, With Fiona Shaw Joining Cast
Exclusive: BBC One’s gripping missing persons drama Baptiste is to return for a second, and potentially final season, with Killing Eve star Fiona Shaw joining the cast.

The six-part series, made by Fleabag producer Two Brothers Pictures, follows retired detective Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) as he delves into Budapest’s corrupt underworld in an attempt to find a British Ambassador’s family, who go missing on a skiing holiday in the Hungarian mountains.

Ambassador Emma Chambers is played by Shaw, a character who is thrust into the crosshairs of Baptiste’s most complex case to date, as the detective navigates an untrustworthy Hungarian police force and international media interest as he hunts for her husband and two sons.

Harry and Jack Williams, writers and managing directors of Two Brothers Pictures, said the second season will pay homage to The Missing, the BBC drama from which the character of Baptiste originated,

DVD Review – Baptiste Series One

Rachel Bellwoar reviews series one of Baptiste…

Not every TV detective is made to have a TV show named after them. With Julian Baptiste, it feels like the natural next step. After acting as the primary carryover between seasons one and two of The Missing, Baptiste and Tchéky Karyo, the actor who plays him, get the Columbo treatment they’ve always demanded: Julian’s surname as the title of The Missing’s spin-off, Baptiste.

Still limping but fully recovered from the brain tumor that threatened his life in The Missing season 2, the brilliant French detective, who made a name for himself working missing persons cases, has finally decided to retire. It goes without saying that retirement doesn’t last long. Convinced to help the police on a new case, Edward Stratton’s niece, Natalie (Anna Próchniak), has gone missing. A sex worker who may have gotten mixed up with a Romanian gang,

“Mary Magdalene” Wastes Rooney Mara And Joaquin Phoenix

There’s so much talent involved in the production of Mary Magdalene, you know it would only sit on the shelf for so long. Caught up in the dissolution of The Weinstein Company, it now hits theaters this week, a year or so after when it was figured to arrive. For some, this will be a must see curiosity. Unfortunately, for most it’ll just be a disappointment. Despite all of the talent that came together for the movie, they can’t grt it to engage with the audience. It remains stuck in neutral. Even after seeing it, you’ll almost certainly be left wondering what all the fuss once upon a time was about. The film is a biblical drama, telling the story of, you guessed it, Mary Magdalene (Rooney Mara). A woman unsure of her place in the world, she’s only sure that she wants more than

Baptiste finale: was the bloody, moody Missing spinoff worth your time?

There was some deft end-game venom, but after six twisty episodes the show was so convoluted it became a pain in the derrière. Julien is not the man he was

This article contains spoilers for the finale of Baptiste.

Searching for lost souls in the seedy underbelly of Europe tends to be a po-faced business. But after six twisty episodes, an increasingly bloody bodycount and some rug-pulling family revelations there was the remarkable sight of Julien Baptiste, the French ex-cop played with samurai solemnity by Tchéky Karyo, bursting into gales of laughter. It may have been a cathartic reaction to surviving a nocturnal car chase through Amsterdam boulevards – an assassination attempt set in motion by his secret lovechild – but it was an outburst that felt both surprising and weirdly plausible. It was also a rare moment of lightness in a spinoff drama that has skewed determinedly dark.

Dobermann

Reminiscent of Franju’s Judex, director Jan Kounen pits the brutal anti-hero Dobermann (Vincent Cassel) against the equally brutal detective Christini (Tchéky Karyo). Packed with enough eccentric characters for two Alejandro de la Iglesia films, Kounen’s movie did well enough that a sequel was announced but it has yet to materialize.

The post Dobermann appeared first on Trailers From Hell.

‘The Sinner’ competes as a limited series at 2018 Emmys and will be back for season 2
USA network has announced that it will be extending its 2017 limited series “The Sinner” with “a second limited season” to air summer 2018. The network confirmed to Gold Derby that it will submit “The Sinner” for Emmy consideration in Best Limited Series instead of Best Drama Series. It has become commonplace at the Emmys recently for shows to compete repeatedly in the limited categories.

The first season of “The Sinner” saw Detective Harry Ambrose (played by Bill Pullman) investigate a murder by Cora Tannetti (Jessica Biel); the second season will again follow Ambrose, as he takes on a new “sinner.” Biel is continuing as an executive producer and said in December that she was open to reprising her character in a potential second season. Based on the aggregate predictions of Gold Derby’s Experts, Editors and Users, Biel is the frontrunner to win Best Movie/Limited Actress this year.

The Missing Season 2 Trailer: Alice Webster Returns

  • TVfanatic
The first season of the Starz series The Missing did not provide the traditional happy ending we've come to expect with Hollywood productions.

That could be due to the fact this is a co-production with BBC One in the UK. Life isn't falsely painted with surgical smiles to make everyone happy.

So what will happen when Alice Webster returns to her family after being abducted in 2003?

We'll have to watch to find out, of course, but this trailer is anything but a puff piece.

The only original character returning is Julien Baptiste (Tchéky Karyo) and one of the first things he says is many years ago, he made a mistake.

How that mistake will impact this case we can only guess, but my guess is it will be in a big way.

What's even more shocking than Alice's return is that she make know the whereabouts of another missing girl.
