TV Promos: Dirk, Gotham, Expanse & More

While Saturday was a big day for film promos, a couple of TV series also dropped a few key trailers as well.

Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency
Chief amongst them was “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,” the new Max Landis produced TV series take on the classic Douglas Adams book. Elijah Wood and Samuel Barnett topline the eight-episode series which follows the time-and-space-shifting adventures of eccentric ‘holistic’ detective Dirk Gently (Barnett) and his reluctant assistant Todd (Wood). The series premieres October 22nd.

The new season of “Gotham” is set six months after the end of the second season with Hugo Strange’s “monsters” now having been unleashed on the city and causing complete anarchy. Jim Gordon is now a monster-killing bounty hunter, Leslie Tompkins has left him, the Court of Owls are now involved, and the Bruce Wayne doppleganger is still out there and has a mission in mind.

The show’s producers say discussions of Ra’s al Ghul’s inclusion have happened but it’s not anything serious at present as “it’s a big step we would take if we ever took it.” They’re also open to the return of Jerome (Cameron Monaghan), and they dropped a trailer which includes a recap of the second season along with a first glimpse of scenes from the third season which returns September 19th.

The Expanse
Syfy’s acclaimed space drama returns for a second season in January and the first trailer has been released. The brewing war between the affluent Earth, the militarised Mars and the struggling asteroid belt heats up as the protomolecule infection spreads.

Legends of the Hidden Temple
The first trailer was released for “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” Nickelodeon’s upcoming telemovie reinvention of the 1990s game show. The story follows three siblings who visit a Hidden Temple theme park and fall through the floor of an old temple ruin and discover it’s real. The original game show’s host, Kirk Fogg, appears in the film which premieres in November.
