Damian and Helen Mirren Join Forces for The Queen’s 95th Birthday – March 10, 2021

Album Project: “The Music of the King and the Queen”

by Sheldon Dane | London News Time | March 10, 2021

Helen Mirren joined forces with Damian Lewis to pay tribute to the Queen before her 95th birthday.

The 75-year-old actress, who won the Oscar on the big screen as a monarch in 2006, and her homeland star, 50, tell a series of stories about British kings and queens throughout history.

Each piece is set in music by contemporary composer Debbie Wiseman, who was asked to create a soundtrack to the Queen’s official birthday parade in June before it was put on hold due to ongoing coronavirus regulation.

The album, entitled “The Music of the King and the Queen,” tells the story of making England through 12 monarchs, beginning with William the Conqueror and ending with the current Queen.

Each royal family will feature the story of Helen and Lewis, accompanied by the music of the Grammy-nominated composer Wiseman, who embodies the individuality of the monarch.

The words were written by Simon Brooksward, an event producer and director who was involved in the planning of the Queen’s 90th birthday celebration.

Dame Helen  said: “I enjoyed the opportunity to work with Debbie on a musical journey into royal history.

“I am honored to be able to record the words with Damian and participate in celebrating Her Majesty’s 95th birthday.

“Debbie did a great job of composing and recording music.

“We may not remember most of the prime ministers, politicians, military forces, and even groundbreaking scientists, but in a good understanding of our kings and queens who shaped our country. Let’s say this is their story and their legacy. “

Billions Returns in 2021 – Oct 1, 2020

Billions Season 5 Returns in 2021 and Renews for Season 6

by Elaine Low | Variety | October 1, 2020

Billions has been renewed for a sixth season at Showtime — and fans will be pleased to know that five new episodes of Season 5 will air in 2021, after the ongoing coronavirus pandemic put a wrench in the premium cabler’s scheduling for the year.

David Costabile, who plays Wags on the show, recently shared with TV Fanatic that season 5 filming would commence around March, 2021 and they will film season 6 back-to-back,

“We will go back and finish the end of the last few episodes of season five, and then we will continue working straight through and shoot season six. So next year, it will be an onslaught of Billions because we will just work from when we start until when we finish season six. They’ve been writing since July, I think. That’s exciting. The writer’s room has been up and swinging. My guess is that by the time we start, everything will be written. We’re probably not starting until around March shooting again, and the [CoVid-19] protocols, my guess, will still be in effect then.”
