A ‘WEDNESDAY’ SPINOFF CENTERED ON UNCLE FESTER IS IN THE WORKS: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Netflix is working on a spinoff of its hit show, Wednesday. The new series will focus on Uncle Fester, played by Fred Armisen. “When you create a world like this, the intention is any one of these characters could be the lead in their own show,” showrunner Al Gough told the outlet. “Certainly it’s cast that way, when you have Fred Armisen, when you have Catherine Zeta-Jones, when you have Luis Guzman. It’s certainly something we’ve discussed and would very much like to, in success, really branch out this world beyond just Wednesday.”
