FIRST LOOKS

Amazon Prime has released the first trailer for “Forever,” starring Fred Armisen and Maya Rudolph living a not-so-quaint life in suburban Riverside, California.

Season 1 of the series created by Alan Yang and Matt Hubbard premieres on Prime Video on Friday, Sept. 14. Watch the trailer below.

CASTING

Michael Kelly (“House of Cards“) has signed on for Season 2 of “Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan” for Amazon Studios. Kelly will play Mike November, a smart, seasoned career field officer in the CIA who works with both Jack Ryan (John Krasinksi), and Jim Greer (Wendell Pierce) across the new season set against a dangerous, declining democratic regime in South America. Previously announced series regular cast members include Noomi Rapace (” The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “Prometheus”) and John Hoogenakker (“Colony”). The first season of “Jack Ryan” will premiere globally on Aug. 31 on Prime Video.

PARTNERSHIPS

BAFTA LA is teaming up with digital platform IfOnly, who has featured experiences with Andy Samberg, James Corden, and Judd Apatow as well as with shows like “Westworld” and “One Day at a Time,” to offer two fans an opportunity to attend BAFTA LA’s TV Tea Party on Sept. 15.
