Published on

On the Pilot TV podcast this week we get the lowdown on Netflix’s South London superhero series Supacell from the show’s creator, Rapman, who dropped by for a chat with Empire's very own hero Alex Godfrey about bringing supes back down to Earth (literally) with his Black-led superpower saga [approx 23:30 - 46:15]. Due to embargo, our pod review of Supacell will drop on Pilot+ later this week. But, while we’re talking about things we couldn’t review for the pod this week, you can also look forward to a whole debacle about The Bear (a Bearbacle?) that plays out in the booth — so if you happened to be joining us to find out what Carmy and the gang have been up to in Season 3 of everybody's favourite restaurant-set drama, you may well be disappointed.

But fear not, dear listeners, there are things we have seen that James, Kay, and Boyd chat about in the reviews section. Namely, this week we're talking Hugh Bonneville and Karen Gillan in Steven Moffat's four-part cancel culture satire Douglas Is Cancelled, which premieres on ITV1 at 9pm on 27 June. Then, we head off to Spain with Eva Longoria for secret identity dramedy Land Of Women, whose first two episodes land on Apple TV Plus on 26 June. Elsewhere, alongside all the usual news and chat — Batman: Caped Crusader castings! The Penguin trailer! A Knight Of The Seven Kingdoms first look! — this week's listener question has us contemplating nerdy trips to iconic filming locations.
