The trailer is great fun. Worth a watch, even if you’re not familiar with the show.

With efforts to downplay the stupid virus in the early months of the year, there are reportedly concerns within Fox News that it may have opened itself up to a lawsuit.

Gabe Sherman:

I've heard Trish Regan's being taken off the air is, you know, reflective of this concern that Fox News is in big trouble by downplaying this virus and The New York Times reported days ago that the Murdoch family was privately taking the coronavirus seriously. The Murdochs, of course, own Fox News. So, they were taken personal steps to protect themselves while anchors like Trish Regan and Sean Hannity were telling viewers that it's a hoax and putting themselves in potentially mortal danger. So I think this is a case where Fox's coverage, if it actually winds up being proved that people died because of it, this is a new terrain in terms of Fox being possibly held liable for their actions.

Dean Devlin is a producer and writer. You may have seen his show Leverage or The Librarians. He’s best known for writing a little film called Independence Day.

He’s just launched a new show called Almost Paradise which is doing something a bit different. It’s a US series that is filmed and set in the Philippines

We are trying to show that the filmmaking community in the Philippines has evolved so much in the last 12–15 years, beyond what anyone really knows. This is the first international television scripted series ever done in the Philippines. I think this is really an opportunity to show what amazing talent they have both in front of and behind the camera.
