WIGS to air on Skewing

Lifetime UK is turning to a web series for their next acquisition. The female skewing channel has snapped up the exclusive UK rights to the WIGS series Blue starring Julia Stiles (The Bourne Ultimatum) for their Spring schedule, TVWise has learned.

Blue stars Stiles as the title character, who works as an accountant by day, but as an escort by night. As she leads two lives she struggles to keep these worlds apart. Ultimately, Blue is threatened with exposure and becomes desperate to shield her son from the truth, forcing her to descend deeper in to a world of deception. William Peterson, Eric Stoltz, James Morrison and Uriah Shelton also star.

The series is produced for WIGS, the YouTube channel launched in 2012 by Jon Avnet and Blue creator Rodrigo Garcia with a decided focus on scripted drama, and has aired three seasons. As part of their deal with Fox, Blue and other WIGS series have also aired longer-form, TV-length episodes on Hulu and Hulu Plus.

BlueLifetime UK’s deal for Blue covers the content produced for the first two seasons, which originally unspooled on YouTube as close to 40 webisodes. For its run on Lifetime, those webisodes have been re-cut into 10 hour-long episodes, which will begin airing on the channel on Monday March 2nd at 10pm.

Out of the Dark in Cinemas February 27th 2015

Last month JoBlo brought us the effectively creepy international trailer for Lluís Quílez’s supernatural thriller OUT OF THE DARK, which stars Julia Stiles, Scott Speedman, and Stephen Rea, and today we have word on when you finally expect to check it out in theaters as well as a look at the film’s poster.

Sarah Harriman’s (Stiles) family has relocated from London to a small town in Colombia to take over her father’s business. Moving into a beautiful old home and having her father nearby, their new life in Santa Clara seems like a promising place to raise their young daughter Hannah. But Sarah and her husband, Paul (Speedman), soon learn of an ancient legend that haunts the town and has created a culture where ghosts have become the answer to anything that goes wrong.

As they settle into their new surroundings Hannah begins to act strangely, wandering off into the jungle as if following something, and suddenly falls ill. When Sarah and Paul begin to see disfigured ghost-like creatures around the house Hannah disappears, sending them on a frantic search to find her. As they delve deeper into the town’s superstitions they discover a shocking secret about their family and must uncover the truth in order to save their daughter.

OUT OF THE DARK arrives in theaters February 27 from Vertical Entertanment. Vertical’s Rich Goldberg says that “Out of the Dark is much more than it seems on the surface. We think it will surprise genre fans with its ability to reach beyond just the scares and great storytelling and have a thought-provoking motif that will stay with them well after they see it.” Sounds good to me! In the meantime check out the new poster, here.
