– I’m not a big fan of animated food, which I am often told is a character flaw by both my colleagues here and my family members, but I love Bob’s burgers, and the boy is more enthusiastic about the feature film than any other film on the market. It feels like it’s been evolving forever (and I think the release date was pushed back?), But it’s finally coming on Memorial Day weekend, May 27th. It will involve a sinkhole and an attempt to save Bob’s Burgers. Here is the first trailer:
– Chip and Joanna Gaines’ Magnolia Network – the newly transformed Discovery DIY Network – has already had to pull one of its upcoming series, Homework hosted by Candis and Andy Meredith, from his schedule. Why? Because the network, known for its home renovations, is being accused of sloppy renovation work. This comes after three homeowners featured in the series took to social media allegations of “damaged homes, long delays and overbudget renovations.” To know:
First of all, I’m surprised we’ve not seen more claims like the ones above – I mean, these home remodeling designs for TV may not all be very good, can they? Besides, I had no idea that people actually paid to be a part of these home renovation shows. Huh.
– I was a little worried when Disney took over Hulu that they would let it fall into a permanent state of decay. Fortunately, they still put a lot of money into original content. To know: They have commissioned a new comedy series called Restart with Judy Greer, Johnny Knoxville and Keegan Michael-Key. Here’s the meta premise itself: Cast from an early 2000s show is forced to reunite as Hulu orders a reboot of the sitcom. It’s a real series about a fake reunion of a fake sitcom.
Judy Greer – who replaced Leslie Bibb – will play “a small-town competition girl who always dreamed of being an actress and a princess” and achieved both; Keegan Michael-Key is set to play a Yale-trained actor who is annoyed by the comedy; and Knoxville will, fittingly, play a malicious stand-up comic returning to its only sitcom role. The series comes from Modern family Steve Levitan.
– I know Mike mentioned it in Pajiba Love last night, but it’s worth mentioning again that Fox will be Taylor Sheridans (Yellowstone) best work, Hell or high tide, in a series. Taylor Sheridan will not be involved. It seems… strange, but then again, they captured Jessica Mecklenburg (Dopsyg, Stranger Things) as co-exec producer. Dopsyg was phenomenal so I approve!
– No book has been recommended to me by the book recommendation algorithms more than Anthony Doerrs All the light we can not see, and yet I consistently reject these algorithms. YOU DO NOT KNOW ME. Still, the novel is being adapted by Netflix and will star Mark Ruffalo and Hugh Laurie, which feels like it might have been cast by a different algorithm to my liking. The four-part series will be about a teenager who is blind and a German soldier whose paths cross in occupied France as they both try to survive the devastation of World War II. It is worth noting that the book recommendation algorithms also told me to read I know so much is true, which was transformed into an HBO series starring Mark Ruffalo. Both the book and the series were amazing, but also way for heck depressing (especially in the first months of the pandemic).
Production on the third – and potentially last – season of Ted Lasso has begun.
– Casting is underway for the second season of HBO’s White Lotus. Jennifer Coolidge will be back and she will be joined – so far – by Michael Imperioli and Aubrey Plaza, according to THR.
– Here is finally the trailer Suspicion, a new Apple TV + series that premieres on February 4th. Here is the log line:
When the son of a prominent American businesswoman (Uma Thurman) is kidnapped from a hotel in New York, the eye of suspicion quickly falls on four seemingly ordinary British citizens who were at the hotel that evening. As they find themselves in a transatlantic cat-and-mouse race to evade the combined efforts of the National Crime Agency and the FBI to prove their innocence, it becomes clear that not everyone can be trusted. Who is really behind the mysterious abduction and who is only guilty of being in the wrong place at the wrong time?
It looks decent.
