Plan B trailer

You might know Natalie Morales for her work as an actress on shows like Parks and Recreation, The Little Things, Happily, Stuber, or Bojack Horseman. But after directing several short films and multiple episodes of television, she’s making her feature debut in 2021. Her first film is a pandemic-era drama called Language Lessons, but it seems she quickly leapt to the next level with her second feature, Plan B. This one is a road trip comedy about a straight-laced high school student who attends a party, has sex for the first time, and then goes on a quest with her best friend to find the morning after pill. Think Booksmart or the Netflix show Never Have I Ever, but crossed with the HBO Max comedy Unpregnant. Check out the first trailer below. Read More »

The Series: Sasquatch

Where You Can Stream It: Hulu

The Pitch: While working on a weed farm in Northern California in the early 1990s, David Holthouse witnessed a fellow employee tell an unbelievable story: according to the guy, multiple people on the farm where they worked had been ripped limb from limb, and Bigfoot was to blame. Decades later, Holthouse (now an investigative journalist) sets out to get to the bottom of that story and find out what really happened in those woods all those years ago.

Why It’s Essential Viewing: Over the past few years, I’ve gotten increasingly interested in deep-dive stories that follow journalists as they sift through a unique setting or situation in an attempt to get to the bottom of a mystery. Podcasts like Wind of Change and this episode of Reply All have done it very well lately, but in the realm of TV, I haven’t seen anything recently that has scratched this specific itch quite as well as Sasquatch.
