Amazon’s MODERN LOVE is Guranteed to Make You Cry
Amazon’s Modern Love, a series in which each episode tells a separate story about love in NYC, is one of the most heart wrenching series I’ve ever seen. Just when you think it can’t get any more romantic/dramatic/moving, the next episode sends you racing for the Kleenex box. And the star power! Dev Patel, Ed Sheehan, Tina Fey, Julia Garner, Katherine Keener, Anne Hathaway (who will absolutely rip your heart out) and more.
In honor of the show, Amazon had an event at the H Club and allowed us to photograph our own modern love stories. Check out mine below.
Take a Bite of Apple TV’s The Morning Show
Stop whatever you’re binging and tune in right now to Apple TV’s riveting new The Morning Show, which I think is one of the best new series our there. You’ll see stars like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell doing some of their best acting ever. Do I smell awards nominations?
Frankie Says Thankie to Disney+
In honor of their launch yesterday Disney+ gave BioFit 360 Ambassadog Frankie Feldman one of their special dog-friendly pup cakes, and I got a colorful sprinkled mini cupcake as well! Woo Hoo! So of course I had to run home and subscribe. Frankie can’t wait to see the live action version of Lady and the Tramp, although he’s still bummed he wasn’t cast. As for me? The Mandalorian is first on my agenda.
Fresh Off the Boat to Dock Permanently
In case you haven’t heard, Fresh Off the Boat is ending its six-season run early next year, with an hour-long bon voyage series finale on Friday, February 21 at 8p. “We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” said Karey Burke, President of ABC Entertainment. “The success of Fresh Off the Boat has helped pave the way for inclusion throughout the industry.” I’ll miss it!
What Could Be Better Than Billions?
As if Showtime’s Billions isn’t great enough, some of my absolute favorite actors Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards) have been signed to guest star in multiple episodes of Season Five. Already in production, the new season is slated to premiere sometime in the Spring of 2020.
Lance Bass and HGTV Kiss and Make Up for the Holidays
Former NYSNCer Lance Bass may have been outbid by HGTV for the iconic Brady Bunch house, but it looks like there are no grudges being held. Bass is hosting an HGTV holiday special, Outrageous Holiday Houses, to run on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, at 11pm. It will spotlight such festive towns as Santa Claus, Indiana, and North Pole, Alaska. And it’s all produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment. In fact, it kicks off with Property Brother Drew Scott and his wife, Linda Phan, in LA.
I’ll watch…er…record it. The tryptophan will have kicked well before that.
Steven Soderbergh Goes Adam McKay in THE LAUNDROMAT
Currently playing on Netflix, The Laundromat is a political dramady about the Panama papers, told from the perspective of outrageous fictionalized characters. Starring heavyweights like Meryl Streep, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright and Gary Oldman and directed by Steven Soderbergh, expectations have been high.
Worth the hype? You’ll be reminded a lot of Adam McKay’s The Big Short in ironic tone and style. The Laundromat is equally amusing, but not quite as impressive. But it’s still worth a watch—good for really getting your dander up about big business. And always fun to see these masters at work.
The Addams Family Offers A “Spooktacular” Option to Trick-or-Treating
A Spacey New Talk Show from Jim Henson Co.
Yet another reason to subscribe to Disney+ — a Jim Henson puppet talk show called Earth to Ned, which will be a comedic half-hour involving an alien host and his lieutenant interviewing celebrity guests. Love the wildly original take on what was up ’til now a stale format. Get more details at HollywoodReporter.com.
Don’t Miss the New Series ‘The Politician’ on Netflix
So binge-worthy! Soapy satire ‘The Politician’ from Ryan Murphy on Netflix, about a never-say-die guy (Ben Platt) running for student body president at an elite private high school, is just the juicy jolt you need to distract you from the country’s real life political scene. I’ve heard a Season 2 is already in the works. Gwyneth Paltrow: All is forgiven.
