Live Action Last Airbender Series and Bodyguard to Air on Netflix

Netflix continues to make moves that helps it maintain its major player standing amongst all of the networks, cablers, and streaming services.

The latest offerings will be:

  1. Netflix will produce a live action series based on the popular cartoon series, Avatar: The Last Airbender. The original creators will be the executive producers and the show will be made in partnership with Nickelodeon. Avatar: The Last Airbender was set in a world where some people can manipulate the elements by “bending”. It followed twelve-year-old Aang and his friends, who must bring peace and unity to the world by ending the Fire Lord’s war with three nations.  Production of the show will begin in 2019.
  2. Game of Thrones fans rejoice as Richard Madden’s latest show, Bodyguard, will be airing on Netflix starting October 24th. Here’s the synopsis from the BBC: Set in and around the corridors of power, Bodyguard tells the fictional story of David Budd (played by Richard Madden), a heroic but volatile war veteran now working as a Specialist Protection Officer for the Royalty and Specialist Protection Branch (RaSP) of London’s Metropolitan Police Service. When he is assigned to protect the ambitious and powerful Home Secretary Julia Montague (Keeley Hawes), Budd finds himself torn between his duty and his beliefs. Responsible for her safety, could he become her biggest threat?
