Filming on The Morning Show season 2 was interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, and in a new interview, Emmy nominee Mark Duplass says that the second season is being rewritten to factor the ongoing global pandemic into the storyline.  Read More »

Palmer

I suspect that for a lot of people, Fisher Stevens is still best known as the white guy who wore brownface to portray an Indian character in the Short Circuit movies. But while he’s still acting (you may have seen him recently on Succession or The Blacklist), he’s also an Oscar-winning filmmaker who has produced and/or directed a handful of big documentaries over the past couple of decades.

AppleTV+ has just acquired the new movie, and you can read more about it below. Read More »
