In Season 2 of AT&T Audience Network’s MR. MERCEDES, based on a trilogy of novels by Stephen King, things are heating up.

Breeda Wool plays Lou Linklatter, […]Read On »

New 4K, Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Releases for 1/16

BLADE RUNNER 2049 | © 2018 Warner Home Video

Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. BLADE RUNNER 2049 So, I really liked this. I know that it was very mixed between people who thought it was too long or too convoluted or too preachy. But I thought I was as best of a follow up to a movie that is 35 years old as it is highly entertaining and expands upon the whole BLADE RUNNER universe. It also has concrete ties to the original film beyond just bringing back Harrison Ford as Dekker. While he plays a role that is extremely important […]Read On »

In AT&T Audience Network’s MR MERCEDES, airing Wednesday nights, no one but the audience knows the true identity of the title character.

However, in this ten-part adaptation of Stephen King’s bestseller, Brady’s hobby is murder.

In AT&T Audience Network’s Wednesday-night drama MR MERCEDES, based on Stephen King’s novel, no one has yet figured out that Brady Hartsfield (Harry Treadaway) is actually a mass murderer. Certainly Breeda Wool’s character, Lou Linklatter, has no clue about her coworker at the suburban Supreme Electronix store. In fact, Brady is the rare friendly face in a work environment where the boss (Robert Stanton) tolerates extreme homophobia toward  Lou, a lesbian computer tech specialist. Wool was a regular on UNREAL as Faith Duluth, and got her own ten-episode spin-off, THE FAITH DIARIES. This season, the actress has also had guest […]Read On »
