‘Heroes Reborn,’ Keith Richards Netflix Doc, to Debut in Toronto Festival’s TV Lineup

Morgan Neville’s Netflix documentary “Keith Richards: Under the Influence” will world premiere in the Toronto International Film Festival’s inaugural Primetime program, in advance of its smallscreen premiere next month.

Primetime, which showcases the best in international TV, will also screen the world premiere of “Casual” (Lionsgate, Hulu). Created by Zander Lehman and directed by Jason Reitman, the comedy follows the story of a young, single internet entrepreneur and his recently divorced therapist sister. Tommy Dewey, Michaela Watkins and Tara Lynne Barr star in the series.

The series premiere of NBC’s “Heroes” reboot, “Heroes Reborn,” from creator/exec-producer Tim Kring, will also bow in Primetime.

The new festival strand will unveil the Argentinean eco-thriller series “Cromo,” season two of the International Emmy-winning French supernatural series “The Returned” and the Icelandic noir “Trapped.”

Platform screenings will be followed by Q&A sessions with show creators. The festival’s industry confab will host an array of leading international smallscreen producers.

The 40th Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 10 to 20.
