And the beat goes on, as the project changes hands yet again... although maybe in Forest Whitaker's hands (as producer) - who seems to be at the beginning of a bit of a roll (after the huge success of Fruitvale at Sundance this year - a film he produced) - it'll finally become a reality.

We still don't have a date as to when season 3 of Luther will debut, but we assumed that it would happen sometime later this year, given that principal photography ended in mid-February, and post-production has since begun.

As previously announced, Russ Parr's contentious drama The Undershepherd, will make its broadcast TV premiere on TV One on Saturday, March 30th at 8pm/ET, and will screen again on Sunday, March 31, at 5:30pm/ET.This will be the very first time most of you will get a chance to see it, since it screened at only 4 or 5 film festivals last year through this year, and it never received a theatrical release (I'll be posting my interview with Russ in the next day or two, in which he discusses his struggles in getting the film in theaters). In the meantime, TV One has released more clips from the film, which are embedded below, for you to get a glimpse at what to expect.The film's synopsis reads:

Sergio could probably speak more authoritatively about Vanessa del Rio than I could, so I'll let him fill in any holes (pun intended; or is it porn intended) left in my summary. But in an era when the lines between pornography and mainstream celebrity are blurred, with sex tapes becoming launching pads for lucrative careers in the entertainment industry, porn icons of old like Vanessa del Rio would probably fare very well in this century.She was huge (in more ways than one) in the 1970s and early 1980s, appearing in well over 100 porn flicks (softcore and hardcore) including Rear Busters, Afro Erotica, and many more.
