Mr. Reeves and blockbuster director Roland Emmerich are set to work on a sci-fi, action series called New Angeles.

New Angeles will tell the story of a man who enters a virtual reality named, unsurprisingly, New Angeles, to escape his boring everyday life. There, he crafts a new identity for himself and begins to uncover his destiny and a mystery that has implications for him in both virtual reality and his real life.

The show sounds perfect for them both. One being a Veteran actor of all things sci-fi and the other writing for films like Independence Day  and The Day After Tomorrow. So, what could be better? I’m excited to see this collaboration and am thrilled there’s more Keanu to come in all of our futures, on the big screen and small.

Get ready 2014/2015! It’s gonna be the Year of Keanu!!!!!

Is TV Ready for Keanu Reeves?

TV Programs (yes, programs because I’m an old lady) have as of the past years been on the up and up with successes from series like Game of Thrones and Breaking Bad allowing us as viewers to really connect with these characters. Unlike movies we see these characters develop and grow in different ways, good and bad, and see them as more complex beings over a period of time rather than a matter of hours.

This mini-series Keanu is starring in and executive producing is called RAIN and is set to air in 2016.

The character of John Rain is based on writer Barry Eisler’s series of novels, which see the half-Japanese, half-American assassin traveling the world and finding his marks – but never finding human connection. His whole schtick is making his target’s deaths look like natural causes, which should add an interesting puzzle element to the series if the “hits” are where the series’ focus lies.

I’m thrilled to see how Keanu will fair at this new adventure into to television and feel like he’ll really show us what he’s got, really being able to see him open up into something more then just an action hero, “whoa!” guy.

I think the question isn’t if Keanu is ready for TV but are we ready for Keanu on TV? Well, are you?

I know I am.
