‘The Chaperone’ Trailer: Flapper-Era Tale Of Rebellious Future Star & A Stuffy Matron From ‘Downton Abbey’ Team
“I know you’re pretty and the boys like you, but I’m here to protect you.” So says Norma Carlisle (Downton Abbey‘s Elizabeth McGovern), a local society matron in Kansas who never broke a rule in her life and impulsively volunteers to accompany Louise Brooks (Haley Lu Richardson) to New York while the teenager studies dance for the summer. The question is Norma’s motivation, which we learn in the first trailer for The Chaperone, from the Downton Abbey team of writer Julian Fellowes and director Michael Engler.

‘Scandal’ Actress Darby Stanchfield to Star in ‘Locke and Key’ for Netflix
Scandal” alum Darby Stanchfield has signed on to star in Netflix’s upcoming horror/fantasy series “Locke and Key,” TheWrap has learned.

“Locke and Key” follows the Locke family — Nina (Stanchfield) and her three children — who move across the country to Nina’s family home (called the Keyhouse) after Nina’s husband Rendell is murdered. Once there, they discover that the house hides numerous horrifying supernatural secrets — and answers to the mystery of Rendell’s murder.

In the Hulu version, Frances O’Connor played Stanchfield’s role — but she wasn’t the original Nina either. Back in 2011, “Locke & Key” was a pilot at Fox, and Miranda Otto was cast as Nina.

Netflix worked hard to bring the days of the charming bingeable reality show back with properties like Queer Eye and Nailed It! HBO continued to be HBO by debuting brilliant comedies like Barry,
