Part college show, part Hunger Games - with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys." Amazon Studios, Sony Pictures Television, Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film will co-produce with Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, James Weaver, Neal H. Moritz and Pavun Shetty likewise executive producing. (Deadline.com)

WOMAN IN THE BOOK (Facebook Watch, New!) - Crypt TV has booked its first animated horror series at the streaming service which "follows the lives of three estranged siblings who reunite at an aging Mexican hacienda to wrestle for their inheritance, but inadvertently unleash a book-bound horror upon them that has plagued their family for generations."
