★Peacock's drama series Mrs. Davis has added David Arquette and Elizabeth Marvel in recurring roles opposite Betty Gilpin and Jake McDornan. Plot details are scarce but the series is described as an exporation of faith versus technology, an epic battle of Biblical and binary proportions. Andy McQueen, Ben Chaplin and Margot Martindale also star.

★HBO Max has renewed adult animated series Ten Year Old Tom, which follows the misadventures of an average kid as he contends with questionable guidance from the well-meaning grownups around him. Being a kid is hard enough for Tom, but when bad influences seem to lurk around every corner – from litigious parents and drug-dealing bus drivers to school administrators who want to sleep with his mom – it’s downright impossible. While the adults in Tom’s life certainly mean well, they just can’t manage to lead by example.

★Apple TV+ has revealed the cast for the live-action Godzilla and the Titans series: Anna Sawai (Pachinko), Ren Watabe, Kiersey Clemons (Hearts Beat Loud), Joe Tippett (Mare of Easttown), and Elisa Lasowski (Versailles). Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the untitled Monsterverse series will explore one family's journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.

★Peacock's straight-to-series adaptation of Field of Dreams is no longer moving forward at the streamer. Universal Television is shopping the series to other outlets.


★NBCUniversal will be unplugging The Olympic Channel which was launched five years ago as a destination for Olympics programming. The final day of broadcast is September 30. NBC will be announcing new plans for Olympic content in the Fall.
