Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
The makers of “What We Left Behind,” a documentary celebration of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” for the show’s 25th anniversary, have been raising funds to deliver a behind-the-scenes look at the darkest chapter of the Trek franchise. Initially, the plan was to include just five minutes of remastered HD footage from the acclaimed series.

Now a new round of crowdfunding has begun in the hopes to include more – almost 15 minutes more of footage – spread across all seven seasons of DS9 which won’t get the full HD remastering process that “Star Trek: The Next Generation” received. Head to the official site for details, and check out a brief video which includes a look at Andy Robinson’s Garak in crisp HD on Youtube.

Star Wars: Resistance
Disney Channel has released a behind-the-scenes featurette about Team Fireball, the team of heroes that make up much of the cast of the new animated series “Star Wars Resistance”.

The high-flying adventure series, which takes place prior to the events of The Force Awakens, follows young pilot Kazuda Xiono who is recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order.

Olivia Welch, Mike Faist and Ashlei Sharpe Chestnut have scored lead roles in the young adult series pilot “Panic” at Amazon Studios. Joe Roth & Jeff Kirschenbaum are producing.

Lauren Oliver created and penned the series which centers on a forgotten rural town where every year the graduating seniors risk their lives in an illegal, high-stakes game to win life-changing money – and a chance to escape. [Source: Deadline]

Deep State
Walton Goggins has joined the second season of the espionage thriller “Deep State” both in the cast and as executive producer. The series, the first regional commission from Fox Networks Group Europe & Africa, also stars Joe Dempsie, Karima McAdams, Alistair Petrie, Anastasia Griffiths, Victoria Hamilton, Lily Banda and Shelley Conn.

Having failed in the Middle East, global powers are now turning their attention to sub-Saharan Africa and the scramble to plunder its natural resources – the first dirty war over clean energy. Goggins plays Nathan Miller, an ex-CIA agent, who now acts on behalf of the deep state. [Source: The Live Feed]

For its third season, The CW’s “Archie” adaptation “Riverdale” is only going to get darker and stranger with the first trailer arriving teasing a satanic ritual, potential human sacrifice, longing looks and multiple flashes of KJ Apa’s chest. The series returns on October 9th.
