+ OpenTV’s critically acclaimed web series Brown Girls has caught the attention of HBO. (Also probably the stunning box office numbers for Get Out and Hidden Figures and the huge awards season success of Moonlight have caught the attention of HBO.) Fatimah Asghar and Samantha Bailey are developing their series for a full season of big time TV!
+ Hey, here’s this new thing called The Bisexual Representation Awards! There are five categories and you can vote in all of them. It’s like the People’s Choice Awards specifically for bi folks.
+ Orphan Black is back this weekend. (Look for Valerie Anne’s recaps on Mondays.) One of the main ways the show has been promoting its final season is character clips on YouTube and Twitter. For example, this one where Cosima and Delphine are crawling all over each other like a pair of adorable Slytherin kittens.
+ Thanks to Trump, Broad City says it’s new season is going to be darker than ever, but mostly it just seems more glorious than ever. Here’s the trailer for season four. There’s a sneaky peek of Wanda Sykes in here.
+ I am very sad to report that both Underground and Sense8 have been cancelled. However, a Change.org petition calling for a third season of Sense8 already has almost half a million signatures. And there’s one for Underground as well.
+ CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has cast Tala Ashe as “Muslim hacktavist” Adrianna Tomaz. The show has actually done a pretty solid job with resurrected bisexual badass Sara Lance, especially in the second season as it basically made her the commander of her crew. Tomaz will be the first Muslim character to join a superhero team in TV or movie history.
+ Netflix isn’t the only one getting in on the childhood nostalgia game. The Disney Channel is about to unleash a spin-off of That’s So Raven called Raven’s Home, in which she and Chelsea raise their kids together. (But not together-together, I don’t think.) (Even though they’re living in the same house and have been gay for each other a really long time.)
+ Angela Robinson, who you know from D.E.B.S., The L Word, True Blood, and oh so much more, has written and directed a new biopic called Professor Marston and the Wonder Women that explores WW creator William Moulton Marston’s life and explains how his unusual beliefs (for example, he was a hardcore matriarchy believer) influenced the most iconic woman superhero in the world. I’d also suggest Tim Hanley’s Wonder Woman: Unbound if you’re into this kind of thing.
+ The Carmilla movie has started filming! It’ll be released later this fall.

+ Film critic Marya Gates is keeping a running list of Wonder Woman reviews written by women. I think she’s up to 100!
+ Hypable made you a list of 14 more women-directed movies to see in the wake of Wonder Woman.
+ Netflix has acquired the rights to distribute The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, a documentary about the pioneer trans activists and the mysteries surrounding her death. Entertainment Weekly is exclusively hosting the trailer for the film.
