Inside Look At Amazon Prime Video's New Show 'Utopia' Starring Rainn Wilson

We spoke to the cast and creator of Utopia to get the inside scoop on this new sci-fi action thriller series that parallels what we are living through today.


Utopia is a British series that has been adapted by Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn. Utopia is about a killer virus, created by an evil doctor, that was predicted to happen in the comic book "Utopia." The main character of the comic, Jessica Hyde, is discovered to be alive and joins a rag tag group of believers that the comic book is really coming true.

Rainn Wilson, from The Office, stars as Michael Sterns, a forgotten scientist.

"It's astonishing the amount of parallels between Utopia and what's going on in the real world today as we were filming this kind of fictional pandemic just months before a real, actual pandemic. Gillian and I and the cast were absolutely dumb-struck."

John Cusack plays Dr. Kevin Christie, the brilliant biotech who wants to change the world.

"Surreal is the right word. I don't think when we started we though that it would mirror reality quite so much."

Ashleigh LaThrop is Becky, a young girl with a terminal illness that believes "Utopia" has the answers for curing her.

"Utopia is dark but it's got such moments of levity and it's got so much action and it's, you know, adventure and questions and conspiracies."

Jessica Rothe is playing the comic book expert Samantha.

"I think that this show has so much hope and so much heart and I can't wait for the world to see it."

The creator Gillian Flynn told us that art is at its best with people want to discuss it and with how much this show mirrors our lives today and what we have lived through since March people will be buzzing about Utopia.

The cast hopes that viewers will feel a sense of processing, coping and persevering through these unprecedented times after watching Utopia.

Utopia is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

Little People, Big World

Youtube

Kicking off this week's Reality Reel, TLC's Little People, Big World is preparing to say goodbye to its latest season and part of the family's past. The show, which follows the Roloffs as they upkeep their family farm while navigating life at four feet tall, has been airing since 2006.

Over fourteen years later, the family is wrapping up on season 21.

This ending of a season is especially bittersweet as the Roloffs are packing up to move and saying goodbye to the farm and family home.

Amy Rollof told us how hard it has been to make the adjustment.

"You sometimes don't think that you can get through it. And moving...I was like "where am I gonna go?" Like, my life is forever changing."

She went on to reveal the hardest part of it all...

"It's always been hard for me to watch my own show. To tell you the truth that is the hardest thing about doing this show for so many years."

Counting down to the season finale, Amy has been doing Instagram live sessions where she answers fans questions while sharing some favorite recipes. She currently runs her own shop called "Amy Roloff's Little Kitchen" where she sells home goods, kitchen supplies, apparel and more.

Check out this new series: I Love a Mama's Boy

The trailer is as awkward as it sounds. On this new show, viewers follow a few couples across the country who bud heads over who the most important woman is in a relationship. While the girlfriends are certain their priorities should come first, their boyfriends are convinced that mother knows best.

We talked to just one of the couples, Emily and Shekeb, ahead of the season premiere.

Explaining the situation, Emily said:

"I'm never, you know, prioritized in his life. You know...in my eyes, I wanna be number one."

Shekeb gave his response:

"It's not so bad though. I'm trying to keep the balance."

We hope to see the two find some middle ground on the show!

I Love a Mama's Boy premiers October 35th on TLC.
