Alison Brie has signed on to another Netflix show in addition to voicing Diane Nguyen on BoJack Horseman.
As was reported back in January, there’s a new Anne of Green Gables adaptation in the works, from the CBC and Breaking Bad writer Moira Walley-Beckett. Now Netflix says they’re picking it up for audiences in America and elsewhere around the world. A celebratory round of raspberry cordial for everyone!
It’s almost September, which means it’s almost time to pack the kids off to school, get out the coats (oh god, please let this heat finally recede), and get ready for the new TV season to begin. Some of these shows even manage without time travel!
Things didn’t work out for Luke Cage and Jessica Jones, so Cage has moved uptown. Like many comic book super heroes before him, he’s here to clean up the neighborhood.
In February, it was reported that NBC had ordered a series based on Cruel Intentions, the 1999 movie that helped many of us discover true horniness for the first time. In May, they announced the series at their upfronts, but it was then nowhere to be seen on their fall schedule. There are now too many Cruel Intentions…
Portrayals of abortion on television often lack nuance. Usually, they’re a grab for an emotional response from the viewers, a totem of despair for the character or, most often, a plain old cautionary tale. Jenny Slate’s film Obvious Child opened up what an abortion narrative can look like onscreen by being charming,…
Rory and Lorelai are back, shooting the shit in Stars Hollow. Noted set design investigator Bobby Finger observed that they have sat down to a meal of what looks like a family sized pack of toasted Pop Tarts arranged on a platter. It’s gonna be a great four episode (or possibly more!) stint.
Movie musical impresario Baz Luhrmann is deep into the 1970s Bronx—that era and place in which city blight and rampant poverty led young people to get beyond creative, inventing hip-hop, punk, salsa and disco—and finally, his Netflix show about it will debut August 12.
On its surface, Netflix’s new ‘80s-inspired series Stranger Films is an homage to the kid-posse films of that era: it opens with four boys, around 11 or 12, playing a very heated and rambunctious Dungeons & Dragons campaign at the moment of a crucial showdown, a foreshadowing of what’s to come.
You’ll have to wait until August 12 to see Baz Luhrmann’s ‘70s hip-hop drama The Get Down, but in the meantime, this dazzling trailer will whet your appetite.
In its infancy, Orange Is the New Black was the story of Piper Chapman, a narcissistic white woman thrown into a prison complex that seemingly erased privilege. It didn’t take long for the series to reveal itself as less about the chronicles of Piper—the show’s obnoxious nucleus—and more as a tragic saga about the…
Here is a bad idea: to celebrate the return of Orange Is the New Black, a restaurant in Singapore, in an apparent partnership with Netflix, is doing a pop-up “prison dining experience.” That means “home-cooked prison grub” served in a jail-like cafeteria setting. Piper Kerman, who wrote the book the show is based on…
Netflix describes its new series as “a love letter to the supernatural classics of the ‘80s,” and it’s certainly got that feeling all the way down to the Wes Craven-style font and Alan Howarth-worthy score. Premiering July 15, Stranger Things is the tale of a small-town boy who disappears without a trace, which the…
Former resident of Alderson Federal Prison and Facebook Live master Martha Stewart was a guest on Wednesday’s episode of Chelsea Handler’s talk show Chelsea, and one of the topics the two women discuss (behind a coffee table inexplicably covered in apples) is another Netflix property, Orange Is the New Black.
Variety has done the stats on the new scripted TV shows signed to the Fall 2016-2017 season at ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and the CW, and the landscape is looking all too familiar: 90% white, and 80% male. The publication writes:
Netflix has finally released some data about how much its members binge on certain programs.
As previously reported, Netflix is turning Nasty Gal founder and former CEO Sophia Amoruso’s autobiography #Girlboss into a 13-episode comedy series, one that will likely not dwell on the layoffs and reported dysfunction—including the alleged firing of several pregnant employees—faced by the company in recent years.
Truly a great week for fans of soothing streaming TV options. Not only will Julie Andrews be doing a show about the performing arts with puppets, but Netflix has also added Beauty is Everywhere, one of the shows by beloved, gentle-voiced, slightly nap-inducing painting teacher Bob Ross.
