RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars is sashaying from VH1 to Paramount+ for its upcoming sixth season, TVLine has confirmed, joining a few other familiar reality titles.

Though neither a cast nor premiere date are known at this time, whomsoever wins All Stars 6 will join previous winners Shea Coulee (Season 5), Monet X Change and Trinity the Tuck (Season 4), Trixie Mattel (Season 3), Alaska (Season 2) and Chad Michaels (Season 1).

Here’s a breakdown of the other reality titles Paramount+ has in the works:

* A reboot of the classic MTV reality competition Road Rules will introduce viewers to a new roster of “Road Warriors.” Per the synopsis, “these strangers will be abandoned in a far-flung location and stripped of their modern-day luxuries by boarding a restricted life in an RV, traveling from location to location. They will be guided by a set of clues, odd jobs, and missions for money. If they last to the end of the trip, they walk away with the life changing prize.”

* MTV fans can also get pumped for The Challenge: All Stars, which will bring back the “most iconic, boldest, and fiercest Challenge all stars from the original Real World and Road Rules” for a second chance at glory — and a $500,000 grand prize.

* And The Real World‘s original seven strangers will return, as previously reported, for The Real World Homecoming: New York. The multi-episode docuseries, which takes everyone back to the NYC loft where it all began, premieres on Thursday, March 4.

* A new series titled Queen of the Universe will pit drag queens from all around the world against one another in a musical melee. Per the release, we can expect “high heels, high octaves and high competition.”

So here is the process I used to get the PARAMOUNTPLUS promo to work on our existing account. First I switched to Annual. After switching to Annual added the promo code. It now shows 50% off for 12 months applied to our account.

Nickelodeon to expand Avatar: The Last Airbender with creators — first up is an animated film

Avatar: The Last Airbender

When the world needed it the most, the Avatarverse has returned.

Nickelodeon is launching Avatar Studios, a new division to create original content spanning animated series and movies based on the world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra, the network announced Wednesday during ViacomCBS' Investor Day presentation. Original creators and executive producers Michael DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko will lead the studio as co-chief creative officers.

The first project is already lined up: an animated theatrical film set to begin production this year.

Credit: Courtesy of Nickelodeon

In an exclusive statement to EW, DiMartino and Konietzko expressed their excitement to "develop our franchise and its storytelling on a vast scale, in myriad exciting ways and mediums."

"It's hard to believe it's been 19 years since we created Avatar: The Last Airbender," they said. "But even after all that time, there are still many stories and time periods in Aang's world that we are eager to bring to life. We are fortunate to have an ever-growing community of passionate fans that enjoys exploring the Avatarverse as much as we do."

"And with this new Avatar Studios venture we have an unparalleled opportunity to develop our franchise and its storytelling on a vast scale, in myriad exciting ways and mediums," they continued. "We are exceedingly grateful to [Nickelodeon president] Brian Robbins and [president of Nickelodeon Animation] Ramsey Naito for their enthusiasm and respect for the Avatar property and us as its stewards. From the start, they've supported our ambitious plans and created a positive, proactive environment for us."

DiMartino and Konietzko concluded, "We're excited to be back at Nickelodeon where Avatar began, doing what we do best in the biggest way possible. We can't wait to build the great teams and productions to make all of this fantasy a reality."

ATLA, which ran on Nickelodeon from 2005 to 2008, follows a young monk named Aang as he masters the four elements and strives to save his divided world from the ruthless Fire Nation, with help from his friends. The Emmy- and Peabody-winning series has been acclaimed for its storytelling, world-building influenced by Asian and Native cultures, and handling of darker subjects like misogyny and imperialism. It spawned a sequel, The Legend of Korra, as well as numerous graphic novels.

Both series have enjoyed an immense resurgence in the last year as they came to streaming platforms. In 2018, Netflix also stoked excitement when it revealed it was working with the creators on a reimagined Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series. So fans were disappointed when DiMartino and Konietzko announced their departure from the project in August, stating they had lost control of the series' "creative direction."

Now that the creators are helming Avatar Studios, fans have a lot more to look forward to.

The studio's output will debut on platforms including Paramount+, ViacomCBS' subscription video on-demand service; Nickelodeon's own linear and digital platforms; and third-party platforms and in theaters.

Re: CBS AllAccess becomes Paramount +

Well, given I'm going to drop Disney+ before my subscription was to renew in April, will replace it with Paramount+ just for this alone (and bonus of other TV shows coming).

Edit: So decided to sign up and used the code for 50% off but on the page (CBS All Access Account Manager), still show the price of $59.99 for the year (and also the discount was applied). Not sure if it was actually applied or not. Could be that it won't show until after the 7-day free trial?

I've noticed similar in the past. For example we had the $9.99 plan. That showed and underneath it shows 100%off for 1 month while our promo was on there. In the months we paid $4.99, it showed 50% off.

NOw that we have the annual promo, for us it shows the price $99.99 for the year and right below that it shows the discount 50% off for 12 months.

I plan to check our CC history once this charge shows up to be certain it was $49.99.

I wonder if Paramount plus will keep the 2 seasons of the now cancelled Twilight Zone.

They said it stays on there.

I wonder if Criminal Minds will get a bit edgier now that it is on a streaming service. Not sure fans of the show would go for it, though.

Good news:
The company also announced that the commercial-free premium plan will include "4k, HDR and Dolby Vision, mobile downloads and cross-platform dynamic play functionality", without highlighting any specific titles in 4K Dolby Vision. There was no mention of Dolby Atmos sound.

Regarding their library content,
They also need to get all seasons of the original CSI and CSI NY and The Amazing Race. CSI is on Hulu and CSI NY is not on any streaming service. The Amazing Race is on Hulu, but is missing the last 3 seasons. And they also need to get the rights to NCIS LA. Currently CBS AA only carries the current season for some odd reason.

They are getting all 15 seasons of Criminal Minds. Currently 12 seasons are on Netflix and the last 3 are on Hulu. The rights situation for their TV shows is all over the place and pretty fragmented.

Re: Paramount+ (formerly CBS All-Access) - ViacomCBS streaming service - rebrand 3/4/21

Paramount+ is launching with 30,000 episodes and 2,500 movies, along with live sports and 24/7 news coverage. 50 exclusive original series across scripted dramas, kids and family, reality, comedy, music, sports, news and documentaries that are set to premiere on the service in the next two years, including 36 arriving in 2021.

Here are the original titles that have been announced so far:

Scripted Dramas

  • Criminal Minds – top rated series in broadcast and streaming returns with a new scripted series that brings the team back together to investigate a single, fascinating case over 10 episodes.
  • Flashdance – a young woman struggles to make her mark in the ballet world while navigating romance, money, art, friendship, and how to love herself. Award-winning Mad Men writer Tracy McMillan is writing and executive producing the drama series which will pick up from where the story left off, but in present-day. True Blood’s Angela Robinson will direct and executive produce the series with Lynda Obst.
  • Halo – based on the iconic Xbox® franchise, Halo’s epic universe and cast of characters come to life in this new original drama series. In the new television adaptation, Halo will take place in the universe that first came to be in 2001, dramatizing an epic 26th-century conflict between humanity and an alien threat known as the Covenant. Halo will weave deeply drawn personal stories with action, adventure and a richly imagined vision of the future.
  • Land Man – set in the proverbial boomtowns of West Texas, Land Man is a modern-day tale of fortune seeking in the world of oil rigs. The series is an upstairs/downstairs story of roughnecks and wildcat billionaires fueling a boom so big, it’s reshaping our climate, our economy and our geopolitics.
  • Love Story – Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the executive producers of Gossip Girl, The O.C. and Looking for Alaska, are bringing to Paramount+ a series based on the award-winning perennial film, Love Story.
  • Mayor of Kingstown – follows the McLusky family, power brokers in Kingstown, Michigan, where the business of incarceration is the only thriving industry. Tackling themes of systemic racism, corruption and inequality, the series provides a stark look at their attempt to bring order and justice to a town that has neither.
  • Star Trek: Strange New Worlds – the next installment of the popular Star Trek franchise is based on the years Captain Christopher Pike manned the helm of the U.S.S. Enterprise. The series will follow Captain Pike, Science Officer Spock and Number One in the decade before Captain Kirk boarded the U.S.S. Enterprise.
  • The Italian Job – when the grandchildren of the legendary Charlie Croker inherit his old safety deposit box, the quest for the infamous Italian bullion is reignited. The series, from Paramount Television Studios, is executive produced and written by Matt Wheeler (Hawaii Five-0), and produced by Donald De Line.
  • The Man Who Fell To Earth – starring Oscar-nominee and BAFTA-winner Chiwetel Ejiofor, is based on the Walter Tevis novel of the same name and the iconic film starring David Bowie. The series will follow a new alien character who arrives on Earth at a turning point in human evolution, and must confront his own past to determine our future.
  • The Offer – a scripted limited event series from Paramount Television Studios, based on Oscar-winning producer Al Ruddy’s extraordinary, never-revealed experiences of making The Godfather. The 10-episode event series is written and executive produced by Michael Tolkin (Escape at Dannemora, The Player). Ruddy will also serve as executive producer, alongside showrunner Nikki Toscano (Hunters), and Emmy® Award-winning producer Leslie Greif (Hatfields & McCoys).
  • The Parallax View – a scripted series from Paramount Television Studios, based on the iconic film. The series will be executive produced by Paula Wagner.
  • Y:1883 – follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. It is a stark retelling of Western expansion, and an intense study of one.
  • Yellowstone Spinoff, 6666 (Working Title) – founded when Comanches still ruled West Texas, no ranch in America is more steeped in the history of the West than the 6666. Still operating as it did two centuries before, and encompassing an entire county, the 6666 is where the rule of law and the laws of nature merge in a place where the most dangerous thing one does is the next thing… The 6666 is synonymous with the merciless endeavor to raise the finest horses and livestock in the world, and ultimately where world class cowboys are born and made.

Kids and Family

  • Avatar – Nickelodeon’s new animation studio division dedicated entirely to creating content based on the wildly popular world of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra. Led by the series’ original creators Mike DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, in partnership with the Nickelodeon Animation Studio, Avatar Studios will produce for Paramount+ a wide-range of Avatar-inspired content, ranging from spinoffs and theatricals to short form.
  • Dora the Explorer – a new live-action series based on the iconic character, designed for an older audience of kids 6-11 and their families.
  • iCarly – a new chapter for the most successful kids’ sitcom of all time, where original cast members Miranda Cosgrove, Nathan Kress and Jerry Trainor join new friends for a look at these characters’ present-day lives, adventures and comedic mishaps.
  • Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years – the first-ever spinoff of SpongeBob SquarePants, Kamp Koral is a CG animated original series that takes viewers back to when the iconic characters of Bikini Bottom met for the very first time, in a summer camp like no other.
  • Rugrats – an all-new series featuring Nick’s iconic babies, back together with the original voice cast in new CG animation.
  • Star Trek: Prodigy – the first-ever Star Trek for the kids and family audience, combining the Nickelodeon sensibility with the action and adventure hallmarks of the Star Trek franchise.
  • The Fairly OddParents – a live-action take on one of Nick’s longest running and most successful animated hits.
This Nickelodeon-created slate joins Paramount+’s previously announced original kids’ series such as WildBrain’s Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, Boat Rocker’s new Danger Mouse and new editions of Lassie, George of the Jungle and Mr. Magoo from DreamWorks Animation’s Classic Media.

  • RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars – the best of the best from the Emmy® Award-winning RuPaul’s Drag Race return to compete for $100,000 and a coveted spot in the Drag Race Hall of Fame. In each episode, legendary queens will battle it out until only one drag queen is crowned the winner.

All have history, but when relationships are the key to survival, will these legends be able to form new bonds or will their past lead to their demise? With $500,0000 and their legacies on the line, which of these All Stars will prove they are still the best of the best?

Re: Paramount+ (formerly CBS All-Access) - ViacomCBS streaming service - rebrand 3/4/21

Additionally, exclusive original comedy movies that will reignite franchises for new and nostalgia-driven fans alike are expected to arrive on Paramount+ in year one:
  • Untitled Beavis & Butt-head Movie – Emmy® Award-winning Mike Judge reimagines MTV’s seminal, Gen X-defining Beavis and Butt-Head who return for another movie adventure to kick-off the new series.
Wait, WHAT?!

Okay. Okay, then.

I would watch that.

I signed up. I'm an absolute sucker for "commit to a year for a discount". My account does list both the regular price and the discount.
I did the commercial free, glad I did especially since it appears that has 4k.
Not sure what I'm interested in watching at this point - probably Twilight Zone and maybe the Stand, my wife wanted to watch the Star Trek originals.
There's definitely some stuff on the upcoming list I'm interested in.
I liked Behind the Music, but it has to be artists I'm interested in. I really liked Pop Up Video.
It'd be cool if the MTV channel offered some music instead of reality - I would have 120 Minutes and Headbanger's Ball on most of the time.

Does the current app have a queue, my list, favorites functionality? If not, hopefully the PPlus version will.

There's currently about 650 movies listed at CBS All Access. So that's a huge bump. I hope they go deep into the Paramount catalog. I'd love to see more classics that aren't available on other streaming services.

Hopefully the 4k stuff doesn't just mean movies. I want the newer ST stuff in 4K

I'm pretty sure we'll be seeing ST: Strange New Worlds in 4K HDR as well as the new season of Picard whenever the hell they get around to it.

NOw that we have the annual promo, for us it shows the price $99.99 for the year and right below that it shows the discount 50% off for 12 months.

I plan to check our CC history once this charge shows up to be certain it was $49.99.
I contacted the CBS Access support and they told me that once my free trial ends, I will be charged the half off rate of $29.99 (since I chose the plan with ads).

Wow, glad I signed up. In for Criminal Minds (as well as Frasier, the reason I originally jumped in board).

‘Mission: Impossible 7,’ ‘A Quiet Place 2’ to Debut on Paramount Plus After 45 Days in Theaters

“Mission: Impossible 7,” “A Quiet Place Part II” and more upcoming Paramount Pictures releases will be available to view at home sooner than expected.

Those films will debut exclusively in theaters as planned. However, the studio has newly shortened the amount of time they will play only on the big screen. After 45 days, new Paramount theatrical films will land on the budding streaming service Paramount Plus. Currently, “Mission: Impossible 7” is scheduled to release in theaters on Nov. 19 and “A Quiet Place Part II” is set for Sept. 17.

During Wednesday’s presentation, Paramount studio chief Jim Gianopulos reaffirmed the company’s commitment to theatrical releases. In a post-pandemic world, Paramount will continue to look to a 30-day theatrical window for most titles and 45 days for tentpoles like “Top Gun: Maverick.”

Question for those who have had CBS All Access for a while, and this is assuming nothing major changes when it switches to Paramount+, but is there any way to add a movie or show to a watch list? That's one of the things I like about HBO Max and Discovery+, but can't seem to find it in my brief time with the app.

No. Hopefully that changes. They also have a shitty thing where you literally have to pause a show to pick the best sound (usually DD+).
No way to set it to default. And won't carry over if you watch a show back to back. Stupid UI.

More info from Twitter:

#ParamountPlus will give you access to films from @ParamountPics, which has one of the greatest film libraries in the world, plus +700 @Miramax titles.

Thousands more movies will be streamable on #ParamountPlus in late spring, thanks to our #EPIX deal. Films like James Bond, Hunger Games, The Addams Family & The Avengers, next to recent @ParamountPics
favs like @DoraMovie, @SonicMovie, @bumblebeemovie & @rocketmanmovie.

In total, you’ll be able to stream +2,500 movies on #ParamountPlus.

Some of the biggest @ParamountPics releases this year will go to #ParamountPlus after they’re in theaters, starting with the sequel to one of the most original and memorable films of the past few years: #AQuietPlace Part II.

Next, the latest installment of one of the most beloved action spy series of all time, @MissionFilm #MI7, coming to #ParamountPlus after its theatrical run.

Next year, we’ll add even more new @ParamountPics releases to #ParamountPlus after their respective theatrical runs and EPIX pay 1 debut, like @GIJoeMovie #SnakeEyes @CliffordMovie, and @TopGunMovie #TopGun: Maverick.

@ParamountPics will also be making ORIGINAL movies exclusively for #ParamountPlus. First up, new versions of the horror movies @TweetYourScream #ParanormalActivity and @petsematarymov. Then, a totally new story: The In Between, featuring Joey King.

These +2500 movies will be available in late Spring on #ParamountPlus.
