“J6”, a new feature on the January 6, 2021 uprising in the US capital, is to be shopped around with Billy Ray (“Shattered Glass”) to write and direct, while Adam McKay (“Don’t Look Up”) will produce.

As a follow-up to Ray’s Showtime miniseries “The Comey Rule,” the film saw him interview key principals a few days later from police officers to members of Congress who were trapped during the violent siege in order to offer a ground-level view. [Source: Deadline]

We’re going to talk about Cosby
Showtime has released the trailer for its four-part documentary series “We Need to Talk About Cosby”. The series explores Bill Cosby’s lineage from “America’s Dad” to an alleged sexual predator.
