PRODUCTION & DEVELOPMENT

After a first season that drew over 67 million viewers, Netflix renewed “Sex/Life” for a second season. (Netflix’s metric counts households that have watched two or more minutes of a program.) Production will take place back in Toronto, and series regulars Sarah Shahi, Mike Vogel, Adam Demos and Margaret Odette will all be back.

Toni Braxton will headline and executive produce Lifetime’s movie series event “The Fallen Angels Book Club” (wt). Braxton will portray Hollis Morgan, an ex-con turned amateur sleuth who sets out to investigate a series of murders at her book club. Debuting in 2022, Rhonda Baraka (“Pride & Prejudice: Atlanta”), who will also executive produce, wrote the scripts for the two movies, based on the Hollis Morgan mystery book series by author R. Franklin James.

The CW has greenlit a reboot of “Babylon 5,” from original series creator J. Michael Straczynski and Warner Bros. Television. It will center around John Sheridan (portrayed by Bruce Boxleitner in the original series), an Earthforce officer with a mysterious background who is assigned to the space station.

All3Media International signed an agreement with Peacock to bring the globally popular “Escape to the Chateau” to the U.S., as well as brand extension “Escape to the Chateau: Make Do & Mend.” The series follow the adventures of Dick and Angel Strawbridge and their young children, who have relocated from a modest English apartment to a 45-room 19th century French chateau.

“On My Block” premieres it fourth and final season on Netflix on Thursday, October 4, but there is good news for viewers. The series is getting a spinoff, “Freeridge.” The new female-driven YA comedy will follow a new crew of friends from the fictitious California city where “On My Block” was set. Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jermy Haft, who co-created the original series, will re-team for the spinoff with the addition of Jame Uyeshiro and Jamie Dooner.

David E. Talbert is developing a musical series for Disney Branded Television, following the success of his Netflix film, “Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey.” “Madelyn Square Gardens” explores the journey of a young woman named Madelyn who moves to New York from Mississippi with dreams of being on Broadway. Talbert and his wife and partner, Lyn Sisson-Talbert, will produce the project via their Golden Alchemy Entertainment banner.

British broadcaster IT has ordered four-part “DI Ray,” starring Parminder Nagra (“EG”), according to Deadline. The project, which hails from “Line of Duty” duo Maya Sondhi and Jed Mercurio, centers on Rachita Ray, a police officer who takes on a case that forces her to confront her British identity and South Asian heritage, and explores racism in the workplace.

The WNET Group and Love Nature are collaborating on “The Ocean’s Greatest Feast,” a documentary feature originated by factual wildlife producer, Earth Touch. The project harnesses new filmmaking technology to capture South Africa’s famous annual sardine run and a lineup of marine characters in ways never seen before. It will debut in the U.S. on PBS as part of its “Nature” series.

Mara Brock Akil has set her first slate of developments with Netflix. She has a deal with the streamer under her story27 banner. The projects include “Agency,” a drama based on the real life of sports agents Aaron and Eric Goodwin; “Forever,” an inspired-by adaptation of Judy Blume’s YA romance novel; “Astronaut Chicks,” a half-hour comedy that follow four young, female Black friends; and “Stamped from the Beginning,” a partnership with One Story Up, which is a hybrid documentary feature adaptation of Dr. Ibram X. Kendi’s work of the same name.

GaryLico.TV is launching a worldwide commemoration of the 25th anniversary of the premiere of “Forensic Files” (aka “Medical Detectives”). The company has produced a tribute special for the series, which will air globally on RTL, CBS Reality, Atresmedia, E.TV, SBS and more. It is built around a worldwide survey of viewers’ favorite and most memorable episodes and includes never-before-seen-footage, behind-the-scenes of recreations and exclusive interviews with the production team, including series creator Paul Dowling of Medstar Television.

STREAMING

After NBCUniversal warned YouTube TV viewers that they may lose the programmer’s channels if a new distribution agreement can’t be reached, the streamer quickly responded. YouTube TV announced that if NBCU offers it “equitable terms,” it will renew its agreement with the programmer. But if a new pact can’t be reached and NBCU lineup of channels leaves, YouTube TV promised to decrease its monthly price by $10, while their content is off its platform. In the interim, YouTube TV directed subscribers to sign up for NBC’s direct-to-consumer streaming service, Peacock, which starts at $4.99 per month and offers NBCU programming including Sunday Night Football.

Pluto picked up hours of factual programming from Rive Gauche. The content will debut on the free streaming TV service in markets including the U.S., UK, Spain and Latin American, including Brazil. The package includes multiple brands having access to popular crime series “Homicide Hunter,” while “Dog Whisperer” will have its own channel in the UK, LatAm, Spain and Brazil. “My Strange Addiction” and “My Crazy Obsession” will combine to create a new channel in the UK, LatAm and Spain. “Buying American Homes” will have its own individual channel in the UK.

TECH TALK

TikTok has crossed a major milestone: over 1 billion in monthly active users. That’s a 45% increase from mid-2020. In a video posted on the service on Monday, TikTok COO Vanessa Pappas said that each month “over a billion from around the world come to TikTok to be entertained, inspired or discover something new, like sports, music, arts and culture, fashion, DIY and more.”

“Instagram Kids” has been officially tabled by Facebook, for now. However, Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, said launching an app for kids under 13 is still “the right thing to do.” News of Instagram Kids was quickly met with opposition by different quarters earlier this year. Critics included over 40 state attorneys general, who urged Facebook to abandon the project, providing research showing that social media can be harmful to the emotional and mental well-being of children. The move to pause Instagram Kids comes days before the September 30 House committee hearing, “Protecting Kids Online: Facebook, Instagram and Mental Health Harms.

Redbox signed a promotional agreement with Roku to further attract multi-platform users. Beginning now through mid-2022, a $5 Redbox streaming credit will be offered on Roku players sold exclusively at Walmart.
