FRASIER (REBOOT SERIES) (Paramount+) - Jack Cutmore-Scott and Nicholas Lyndhurst have been cast opposite Kelsey Grammer in the sequel series. Cutmore-Scott will play Frasier Crane's son Freddy: "Charming and handsome, Frasier's son Freddy (Cutmore-Scott) is a nuanced combination of his father and grandfather. Years ago, Freddy rejected following in his father's footsteps - dropping out of college to become a fireman - and he's never looked back until now, when recent troubles have left him with no one to turn to in his life. If they can overcome past differences, Freddy and Frasier might finally have a chance to repair old wounds." And Lyndhurst will play Alan Cornwall, "Frasier's old college buddy turned university professor. British, boozy and larger than life, Alan has an intellect on par with Frasier's - if only he ever felt like using it. Alan's mischievous streak might be just what Frasier could use to shake up his routine, while Frasier's thoughtful guidance might help Alan find some of the direction he's been missing in his own life." (Deadline.com, Variety.com)
MARY & GEORGE (AMC) - Nicholas Galitzine has been cast opposite Julianne Moore in the eight-part limited series. Moore will play Mary Villiers, Countess of Buckingham, "who in 17th century England molded her beautiful son, George (Galitzine), to seduce King James I and become his all-powerful lover. Through outrageous scheming, the pair rose from humble beginnings to become one of the richest, most titled and influential mother and sons England had ever seen." (Deadline.com)

When they impulsively decide to get married, they will soon learn that there's a lot they don't know about each other - and they can't outrun their pasts forever.
