“[Hawke promises a] rare and exclusive look at the careers of both actors and a complex 50-year relationship that ultimately managed to beat incredible odds,” Hawke said in a statement.

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward’s 50-year love story began when they became colleagues in the set of 1958’s The Long, Hot Summer. Shortly after that, they both got married in Las Vegas on January 29, 1958. They were praised not only for their withstanding devotion and respect towards each other but also for being one of the few first Hollywood couples, who chose to raise their three daughters outside of California. Their marriage lasted for 50 years up until Newman’s death at the age of 83 years old in 2008.

The docufilm will be produced by Nook House Productions’ Emily Wachtel and Lisa Long Adler along with Under the Influence Productions’ Adam Gibbs and Ryan Hawke. This project marks the second time Hawke will be directing a documentary after six years since 2014’s Seymour: An Introduction.

Alongside newcomer Nathan Owens, who will take on the role of Ocean, Leah’s character will introduce an interesting dynamic. The Whisper is “still harbouring feelings for her powerful boss”.

Speaking of said “powerful boss”, Batwoman‘s newest adversary Safiyah Sohail will be portrayed by former EastEnders star Shivaani Ghai, who soap fans will remember as Ayesha Rana.

So far, Safiyah has had a large off-screen presence in the Arrowverse but has yet to be seen in Gotham City. Until now, of course.

Meanwhile, in other Batwoman news, series boss Caroline Drier recently reassured fans that the show will address Ruby Rose’s departure as Kate Kane.

“We have two major stories this season as we come into season two,” she explained at the DC FanDome event.

“The first one is: Where is Kate? What happened to Kate? Is she alive? Is she dead? Is she missing? Is she on the run? Is she held captive? Is she lost?”

Batwoman will return for season 2 on The CW in the US. E4 airs the series in the UK.

Little Mix have spoken about why aftercare for their contestants on The Search is so important to them.

The girl group were put together on The X Factor in 2011 and hinted they didn’t have a lot of support after they won the show.

Speaking to Digital Spy and others at a virtual press conference, the girls talked about the difference between being judged and doing the judging.

Leigh-Anne explained: “Being judged is definitely more stressful, but it’s more about having their lives in your hands.

“That’s a massive responsibility and you can’t really prepare yourself for that, it’s intense… Judging and saying no and having their dreams in your hands, snatching away their dreams at the last second.”

She added: “I feel like we really do give amazing advice and constructive criticism, and I feel they have such a good experience on the show that even if they don’t do through, it’s something they can take away with them.

“We didn’t have that really on the show that we came from… It was so important for us that we had that in place.

“We’ve all had ‘no’s in our lifetime and it really does affect you.

“What we want is to encourage them to come back and try again, it’s not over because you get one ‘no’. It’s really important we put that in place, definitely.”

Speaking about why the show was different from other reality TV shows, Jade added: “It’s fun, it’s authentic.

“We’ve been in this position ourselves so we can relate more, and that shows when you’re watching it. It’s just fresh and cool.

“It’s exciting and you really get an insight [into] the four of us and how we gel together as a group with our personalities. It’s really fun to watch, as well as seeing some incredible talent.”

Little Mix: The Search starts on BBC One at 7pm on Saturday, 26 September.
