+ HBO is adapting potentially the most beloved gay video game of all time (or, well, video game with a gay storyline), The Last of Us, with the game developers and and the writer/producer of Chernobyl.

+ Power is spinning off again, this time with Power Book III: Raising Kanan, and it will include LaVerne “Jukeboxwp_postsThomas — who clocked in at #83 on our Top 100 Queer and Trans Women of Color Television Characters in TV History — to be played by Tony Award nominee Haley Kilgore.
