NEWS HIGHLIGHTS THIS WEEK:

  • “The Walking Dead” experienced another ratings drop in its 5th episode of Season 8. The episode brought in 7.8 million viewers which is a 10% drop from episode 4. The Season 8 premiere, which was the show’s 100th episode, brought in the lowest ratings for a season premiere since Season 3.
  • Ellen Page will star in Netflix’s “Umbrella Academy” series as Vanya, the black sheep of the superfamily the series revolves around.
  • CBS is developing a “Stripes” TV series. The adaptation comes from Trevor Moore, Sam Brown, and Zach Cregger from sketch group, “The Whitest Kids U’ Know,” and Ivan Reitman will even return to direct.
  • Fred Armisen will write, executive produce and star in a new Spanish language half-hour series on HBO. The project is called “Mexico City: Only Good Things Happen,” and it’s reportedly about a group of friends in a “dreamy version” of Mexico City who are “obsessed with horror films and monster makeup.”
  • Neil Brennan, the co-creator of “Chappelle’s Show,” is set to write and host a new Late Night series for FOX.
