This week we’re talking about a TV adaptation of Ernst Hemingway’s memoir, upcoming NBA programming and the return of a classic TV show.

HBO’s “Succession” returns. The family drama is back for season two, and last Sunday’s episode marked a series high of 1.2 million viewers across HBO’s linear network and digital platforms, up 32% from last year’s premiere episode and up 22% from the season one finale. (Deadline

Ernest Hemingway gets the television treatment. Hemingway’s memoir “A Moveable Feast” is projected to become a TV series with Village Roadshow Entertainment Group. The story follows Hemingway’s early years in Paris in the ‘20s, where he encountered F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, James Joyce, Ezra Pound and Gertrude Stein. Producers for the series include John Goldstone, Marc Rosen and Mariet Hemingway, the granddaughter of the author, who says the series’ aim is to “reveal on film the coming-of-age story that has captivated readers and burgeoning writers for several decades.” The producers are still in search of a writer.

NBA programming is out. The NBA released its upcoming season game schedule, saying it’s been working closely with their broadcast partners to ensure doubleheaders will be covered. Upcoming notable player appearances include Kawhi Leonard in Toronto on Dec. 11 for an LA Clippers versus Raptors game; Celtics guard Kemba Walker will be in Charlotte on Nov. 7; and Jazz guard Mike Conley will be in Memphis on Nov. 15. The games air on ESPN, ABC, TNT, and NBA TV. (ESPN)

A third season of the British royal family drama and the classic stone-age cartoon series will soon be available on Netflix and broadcast network MeTV, respectively. After premiering 59 years ago, The Flintstones airs beginning September 30 at 6pm, Monday through Friday. (Cynopsis)
