HBO Europe, TNT Serie Join Forces on Cyber-Crime Drama ‘Hackerville’

HBO Europe and the German TNT Serie channel are delving into the murky world of cyber-criminals and the investigators tasked with tracking them down in “Hackerville.” The six-parter will bow on TNT in Austria, Germany and Switzerland, and HBO Europe in Central Europe, Scandinavia and Spain.

Both HBO Europe and TNT Serie have been moving more deeply into original programming, but this is the first time either has set up an international co-production. The show will mostly be in Romanian, with some dialogue in German.

Igor Cobileanski, whose credits include HBO Europe original “Umbre,” will direct with Anca Miruna Lazarescu (“That Trip We Took With Dad”). The show was created by Ralph Martin and Joerg Winger (“Deutschland ’83”) from UFA Fiction and will be produced by Cristian Mungiu and Tudor Reu through Mobra Films.

Spencer Pratt Breaks Down All the Drama on This Week’s Siesta Key

Everything’s gone to hell in Siesta Key. Last week, while Madisson was having her dreams shattered in New York, Brandon was cheating on her back home. And this week? Well, it all came to a heart-wrenching head at the Halloween party — with Madisson being the last to learn that the man she’s spent an entire summer loving never really had her back. So what happens now? Cosmo caught up with reality king Spencer Pratt to get his take on Brandon’s low-down, dirty behavior. And boy did he have thoughts.

On Brandon’s voiceover

“As much as Brandon’s always on that microphone, I felt like his narration was a real disappointment. I get he didn’t like what he was discussing, but it didn’t come off as smooth as his rap flow. If that music producer gave his music a C, I think he’d give this voiceover a D-. Sorry.”

‘Search’ Review: John Cho Stars In Abduction Drama on Computer …

As technology has infiltrated every aspect of modern living, a number of films have attempted to integrate its influence into their storytelling methods. However, few have gone beyond mastering the basics, like making an on-screen text message look believable. In 2015, the horror outing “Unfriended” took the idea to a new level: the entire feature takes place on a laptop screen and plays off the weird interconnectivity that allows cyber-stalking – in this case, seemingly from beyond the grave – to seep into “real life.” Aneesh Chaganty’s “Search” similarly blends storytelling with theme, but the final result is something far more inspiring, one that reaches way beyond its initial gimmick to deliver an engrossing ride.

27 Jun

Fleeing New York in an attempt to evade a cyber criminal and stalker who has hacked into a number of Beth Shak‘s email, social media, and bank accounts did not put an end to the hacking, as Shak recently reported to police that someone had broken into her Pennsylvania home as well.

Shak, an ex-Full Tilt Red Pro who has cashed for almost $500K in live tournament action and was previously married to hedge fund trader and  poker player Dan Shak, claims that a diary detailing the chronology of her hack victimization was stolen in the latest crime. Also missing is her list of passwords that the miscreant apparently used to disable her home security system.
