Designated Survivor Renewed

Last week brought dozens of cancellations by TV networks clearing the path for new shows hitting the air for the new 2018-2019 television season. Brooklyn Nine-Nine was lucky enough to be saved with a last minute renewal, and now one more has been given a new lease on life after being canceled.

Designated Survivor is an ABC drama following Kiefer Sutherland as Tom Kirkman, a lower-level cabinet member in the United States government who is suddenly appointed President of the United States after a catastrophic attack on the US Capitol during the State of the Union. With his new responsibilities, he had to keep the country and his own family from falling apart, while navigating the highly-volatile political arena and while leading the search to find who is responsible for the attack.

The series lasted just two seasons before being canceled by ABC last week, but now production company eOne is in talks with Netflix about the political thriller getting picked up for another season. However, it’s not a done deal yet. Read More »

Chappaquiddick Trailer

It’s no secret that the Kennedy family has been stricken with grief on numerous occasions, so much that Ted Kennedy, the youngest brother of John F. Kennedy, once wondered if there was some kind of curse that hung over his name. Now, audiences will see a dramatization of the tragedy that led to this heartbreaking conclusion.

Chappaquiddick takes us back to 1969 when Ted Kennedy (Jason Clarke) was the last hope at continuing the Kennedy family bloodline. During a celebration for a group of women known as the Boiler Room Girls (who worked on his brother Bobby’s ill-fated presidential campaign the year before), he went off for a night drive with one of the female campaign workers, 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne (Kate Mara). Little did he know that there was another tragedy in his future. You can find out what we’re talking about in the Chappaquiddick trailer below. Read More »

the last thing he wanted

While all of the attention has gone to socially conscious Oscar front-runners like Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri and Get Out, Anne Hathaway and Dee Rees both quietly delivered two of the most powerful movies of 2017. Hathaway starred in the clever Colossal, whose themes of domestic violence elevated its quirky sci-fi underpinnings, while Rees directed the racially-charged period drama Mudbound. Now, the two of them will be teaming up for their next project.

Hathaway will be starring in The Last Thing He Wanted, an adaptation of a Joan Didion political thriller directed by Rees.

Watch Our Cartoon President

Since every single day is a waking nightmare thanks to the actions of Donald Trump and his bumbling administration, some good old fashioned satire is exactly what we need to help us get through the next three years.

Showtime has teamed with Stephen Colbert to deliver an animated series called Our Cartoon President, providing us with a comedic take on the Donald Trump presidency. Since the administration itself is already laughable, mocking them satirically has proven to be a bit of a challenge (as evidenced by Saturday Night Live‘s hit or miss sketches on the matter), but this show looks to be wacky enough to bring some levity to the situation in Washington D.C.

And you can watch the pilot episode for free right now, even if you don’t subscribe to Showtime.  Read More »
