by Gingersnap | damian-lewis.com | June 15, 2022

Today, June 15, 2022, invitation-only attendees gathered for a private viewing of an art exhibit showcasing exclusive photography pieces of Helen McCrory to support the Sir Hubert von Herkomer Foundation and to honor The McCrory Award. The foundation – which Helen was the former Patron of and is now patroned by Damian – gives access to free art and media workshops for disadvantaged children “…so they can express their inner artist” and flourish. Other featured photographs that were donated by friends include Fay Ripley, Mark Strong, Eddie Redmayne, Helen Bonham Carter, Sienna Miller, Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Billie Piper, James Purefoy, Harriet Walter, Harry Treadaway, Stephen Mangan and Andrew Scott, all who posed for Debbi Clark, photographer and CEO/Founder of HvH Arts Foundation.

The McCrory Award was announced that evening, with Damian presenting the award to three young HvH Arts Foundation artistic beneficiaries. The foundation is dedicated to supporting children and young people who are gifted in their art, yet many do not have access to resources, training or support to fulfill their dream. The McCrory Award and charitable mentorship will make their dreams become a reality. Helen always believed every child should have equal opportunities and accessibility to the arts.

Potential Release Date, Cast and Plot

by Harsha | Nilsen Report | February 16, 2022

Are the rumours about Masters Of The Air (Band Of Brothers third sequel) true? Can we expect the third season any time soon? Well, come along, let’s try and figure out what the scenario is like!

Masters Of The Air: When’s it Releasing?
Rumours about Masters Of The Air have been in the air for several years now. However, the production team or the makers of the show haven’t come up with any official announcements or updates as to when the show is going to hit the screens. It is for sure that it will premiere on Apple TV+. But when we do not know. The director asserted in an interview that the show has been in development for many years now. Due to one reason or another, it could not happen. Even as of now, no official affirmation has been provided. Considering how awesome the first two parts of the series were, the third sequel is much awaited! The makers have confirmed that there will be a renewal. So, it’s for certain that Masters Of The Air is happening! Apple TV+ revealed that its filming and production began in March 2021 (with a production cost of around $200 million). If we were to anticipate the release date of Masters Of The Air, it would be either by the end of 2022 or later in 2023. Given the Covid situation, the postponement is inevitable.

25 of the Most Expensive TV Series of All Time

Band of Brothers

by Angela Underwood | Stacker via MSN | January 5, 2022

TV is a numbers game in more ways than one. Creating intricate sets, using new visual effects, and paying famous actors make television an expensive enterprise. Some of the biggest numbers in show budgets are on actors’ paychecks: In the 1990s, well-known stars like Kelsey Grammer were getting $1.6 million for each episode while Jennifer Aniston and her five “Friends” raked in up to $1 million per episode. In the final season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” several of its stars made $500,000 per episode, revealing paying talent top dollar has not changed.

“Band of Brothers” was among the first big-budget shows not on major network television when it began its run on HBO in the late 1990s with an almost unheard of budget of $12 million per episode. Having Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg attached to the project pushed HBO into funding it. The network has since spent even more on making shows like “The Pacific” and “Game of Thrones.”

To find out the 25 most expensive TV series of all time, Stacker conducted independent research via news reports and entertainment outlets and ranked the shows by budget. Ties were not broken when shows shared the same budget. Read on to discover which shows cross the $10 million-per-episode budget threshold—and which takes the cake, with a budget of a whopping $21.7 million per episode.
