This article is derived from the COASTAL ELITES online panel. Rudnick and his fellow COASTAL ELITES executive producer, director Jay Roach, and cast members Bette Midler, Kaitlyn Dever, Dan Levy, Sarah Paulson, and Issa Rae each appear from their respective homes, answering questions from the press.

HBO’s new series WATCHMEN premieres on Sunday, October 20. Developed for television by Damon Lindelof, WATCHMEN is essentially a sequel to Alan Moore’s 1987 graphic novel of the same name (as with other adaptations of his work, Moore has disavowed the TV follow-up).

Regina King plays Angela Abar, who is part of a […]Read On »
