A huge congratulations to Diesel La Torraca for his casting in upcoming Netflix series 'Ginny & Georgia'.

The 10 episode drama will follow angsty and awkward fifteen-year-old Ginny Miller who often feels more mature than her thirty-year-old mother, the irresistible and dynamic Georgia Miller.

For Ginny, that means navigating a prestigious school, rising popularity, and complicated love interests. But it’s not all carpool and Kombucha as Georgia’s past threatens her and her family’s new way of life.

Diesel will play Austin, Ginny’s sweet, innocent, perpetually unkempt younger son.

After losing her job and her boyfriend, city girl Gabriela (Christina Milian) spontaneously enters a contest and wins a rustic New Zealand inn.

SJM actors star in 'The Nightingale'

SJM's Magnolia Maymuru and Danzal Baker (aka Baker Boy) star in Jennifer Kent's new feature film 'The Nightingale'. The film has already picked up the Special Jury Prize at Venice 2018.

Australia's dark colonial past is examined in the story of Clare, an Irish-born convict who's served her sentence. But nothing can stop Clare's abuse at the hands of Hawkins, an ambitious and amoral British lieutenant. So begins an unforgettable tale of violence and retribution in which Clare forms an uneasy alliance with a young Indigenous guide named Billy. 'The Nightingale' is frequently brutal and shocking – and necessarily so. Transcending traditional boundaries of the revenge thriller, Kent's savagely beautiful film confronts us with uncomfortable truths about the formation of the Commonwealth we call home.
