ST. LOUIS (AP) — The NAACP wants a St. Louis-area TV station to fire a newscaster for what he called an unintentional racial slur while talking about Martin Luther King Jr. KTVI newscaster Kevin Steincross was discussing a tribute to the black civil rights leader on Jan. 17, when he referred to King as “Martin […]

‘American Gods’ Season 2 Trailer: The Gods Go to War

American Gods is returning this March, and the full trailer is here to sound the alarm. The second season of the Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel will unleash all-out war as the old gods go to battle with the new. This trailer certainly looks epic, but can the show distance itself from its many behind-the-scenes troubles? Time will tell. Watch the American Gods season 2 trailer below. American Gods Season 2 Trailer  I enjoyed American Gods season 1, but the behind-the-scenes dram...

Rachel Brosnahan Fits in Perfectly in the First ‘Saturday Night Live’ of 2019

Rachel Brosnahan has found success pretending to be a comedian on the hit Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel (which is worth watching right this very minute if you haven’t already). But how did she fare taking the reins of one of the most revered comedy shows of all time? Saturday Night Live didn’t use Rachel Brosnahan as effectively as fans might have hoped, not giving her much opportunity to play any standout characters, but the actress did feel comfortable on the series, blending in rat...

‘This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy’ Trailer Features Doomsday Prep, Artificial Intelligence, and More

Kal Penn and director Adam McKay want to teach you about the global economy. That doesn’t sound very exciting at first, but just wait – the This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy trailer goes to great lengths to make all of this sexy, funny, and, well, kind of scary. And it’s educational, too. For instance: you’ll learn all about how we’ll turn into cannibals a mere two months after the global economy collapses. This Giant Beast That is the Global Economy Trailer This Giant Beast T...

‘Unsolved Mysteries’ Reboot Coming to Netflix From ‘Stranger Things’ Producer

Unsolved Mysteries, the classic show in which Robert Stack told us all about serial killers, missing people, UFOs, and ghosts, is getting a reboot for Netflix. Shawn Levy, producer of Stranger Things, will oversee the Unsolved Mysteries reboot, which will once again focus on the unexplained and the mysterious. This could be very cool – but it just won’t be the same without Robert Stack. Deadline broke the news about the Unsolved Mysteries reboot, and I’m cautiously optimistic. I was a huge f...

‘The Punisher’ Showrunner Already Has An Idea For Season 3 [Interview]

The return of Marvel’s The Punisher comes at a precarious time for Marvel shows on Netflix. Along with Luke Cage and Iron Fist, Daredevil was recently cancelled after its third season, leading m any to wonder why Netflix is dropping them. It still remains unknown if these shows will continue on Disney+, but the Jon Bernthal-led series The Punisher is back with a second season on Netflix right now.

Netflix Reveals Users’ ‘Black Mirror: Bandersnatch’ Choices and Teases More Interactive Entertainment

Netflix is notoriously stingy when it comes to releasing any information about its user base and their viewing habits – except, of course, when that data makes the company look good or its social media managers are allowed to have a bit of fun with its audience. Now the company has pulled back the veil of secrecy and offered a brief peek at some of the Black Mirror: Bandersnatch choices users made when watching the interactive movie. Read on to discover the numbers and a quote from chief conten...

Money talks: UFC reaches ESPN with first fight of $1.5B deal

NEW YORK (AP) — Years before UFC was worth billions, Dana White used to plead his case with ESPN for air time. This was no negotiation for a big-money rights package — the UFC president simply wanted highlights on “SportsCenter.” “I was out there all the time,” White said of his trips to ESPN’s Connecticut […]

‘I Am the Night’ Review: Patty Jenkins and Chris Pine Reunite For Some Pulp Fiction

Hard-boiled dialogue. Trips to the morgue. Boozy floozies. Sharp-dressed men lurking in the shadows. Dames, death and danger. We’re knee-deep in the world of pulp and noir. This is a highway trafficked by Raymond Chandler and James Ellroy. Where the women are imperiled, the men are corrupt, and not even all the stars of Hollywood can cut through the darkness. Say hello to I Am the Night. The Wonder Woman team of director Patty Jenkins and actor Chris Pine re-team to tell this tantalizing tale, ...

Critically-Acclaimed ‘The Kominsky Method’ Gets Season 2 Renewal at Netflix

If you’ve been paying attention to the awards circuit over the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that one Netflix show keeps popping up again and again: The Kominsky Method, which stars Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. The series hails from creator Chuck Lorre, the guy behind Two and a Half Men and The Big Bang Theory, so naturally I ignored it when it premiered late last year. But the show has been slowly racking up awards and appearing on “best of” lists, and now Netflix has officially ...

‘Creepshow’ TV Series Adapting Stephen King’s Most Disturbing Story

As a horror fan, there’s not much that actually shocks or disturbs me. But there are exceptions. One of those exceptions is Stephen King‘s grisly short story Survivor Type, featured in his collection Skeleton Crew. It’s a queasy, nasty piece of work about a man shipwrecked on a desert island, forced to slowly eat his own body parts to survive. And now, it might be coming to TV. Director and special effects make-up artist Greg Nicotero is currently working on a new Creepshow TV series for Shudde...

Netflix has no plans to cut ‘Bird Box’ scene despite outcry

NEW YORK (AP) — Netflix’s post-apocalyptic survival film “Bird Box” is drawing criticism for using footage of a real fiery train disaster but the streaming giant has no plans to remove it. The footage concerns a 2013 tragedy in the Quebec town of Lac-Megantic when an unattended train carrying crude oil rolled down an incline, […]

‘Channel Zero’, the Best Horror Show on TV, Has Been Cancelled After 4 Seasons

I suppose this was inevitable, but it still stings a little. After four creepy seasons, Syfy has cancelled the excellent, but under-watched, anthology series Channel Zero. While the series had fans (myself included), it failed to generate the same amount of buzz as American Horror Story. Now, it’s over. One can hope that now that with Channel Zero cancelled by Syfy, another network – or streaming service – might pick it up. But in the meantime, we’ll have to be content with the four memorable s...

‘Homecoming’ Season 2 Will Not Feature Julia Roberts

If you were hoping to see Julia Roberts in Homecoming season 2, I have some bad news. While Roberts will remain an executive producer on the fantastic Amazon series from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail, she won’t be returning to play her season 1 character Heidi Bergman. This is a bit disappointing, as Roberts turned in a wonderful performance in season 1. THR is reporting that Julia Roberts isn’t coming back for Homecoming season 2, and I’m sad about that. Per their story, “Roberts’ initial de...

Netflix ‘Space Force’ TV Series Will Reunite Steve Carell and ‘Office’ Creator Greg Daniels

Donald Trump’s Space Force idea sounded like (and still sounds like) a joke, so making a Space Force comedy series only seems fair. Netflix will launch Space Force to series soon, reuniting Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels in the process. The show will be a workplace comedy focusing on the people who have been tasked with making Trump’s goofy-as-hell Space Force idea a reality. Space Force TV Series I suppose it was only a matter of time before we started getting TV show...
