The skirts! The brutal dismissal of cheating men! She and Prince Charles, of course, proceed to embark on a very nice whirlwind romance that you definitely know the evolution of, which ends due to the Windsors deeming her unsuitable to become a future queen (well, at the time, that is) despite her and Charles’s borderline soulmate status. Earlier this week, Vulture hopped on the phone with Emerald Fennell, the English actress and writer who portrays Bowles, to discuss sacrificial love, the subtle art of smoking in tubs, and what we really talk about when we talk about Camilla. One thing that surprised me about Camilla is how — even though her life is now diligently recapped in The Daily Mail every day — … [Read more...] about ’s Emerald Fennell Wishes More TV Shows Would Let Her Smoke in Bathtubs
By Charlie Ridgely - November 21, 2019 03:56 pm EST Share 0 Comments 0 Ever since its launch last week, the new Disney+ streaming service has been the talk of the streaming town. Nearly every word about a new addition to the service or mention of a single bug has made headlines. With such an impressive roster of beloved titles and an incredibly cheap price point compared to its streaming rivals, Disney+ was a smash hit upon arrival. There is a lot to love about Disney+, but when it comes to sheer content numbers, the fledgling service still doesn't hold a candle to Netflix. Not to speak on the quality of the content on either service, Netflix just has significantly more movies and shows than Disney+. Some of those may be films you don't ever plan on watching, while every title on Disney+ has a built-in audience. Still, Netflix seriously outweighs Disney+ in terms of quantity, perhaps enough to justify its higher price. Netflix currently boasts a roster of … [Read more...] about Disney+ Has Less Than 15% of Netflix’s Catalogue
UnbelievableDirectors - Lisa Cholodenko, Michael Dinner, Susannah GrantCast - Toni Collette, Merritt Weaver, Kaitlyn Dever There is a catharsis to watching the new Netflix miniseries, Unbelievable, that goes beyond its difficult subject matter. Most of it has to do with the timing of its release. In addition to being an excellent television show, it serves as an uncomfortable, but necessary capper to a particularly sickening week.In the span of a few days, two supremely disheartening things happened. Music composer Anu Malik, accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, was reportedly reinstated as a judge on a reality show. And Aamir Khan, one of the most respected actors in the country reversed his decision to not work with Subhash Kapoor, a filmmaker who’s been accused of sexual misconduct.Watch the Unbelievable trailer here In the cases of Malik and director Subhash Kapoor, allegations were made, and subsequently denied. The … [Read more...] about Unbelievable review: New Netflix miniseries is gut-wrenchingly good, but difficult to watch
In 2004, indie comedy powerhouse Carsey-Werner abandoned its efforts to sell the company after none of the three bidders was willing to pony up close to a billion dollars, which the company estimated its library was worth. A year later, amid rising vertical integration and a comedy downturn at the broadcast networks, Carsey-Werner shut down its production operations as the last of its big hits, Fox’s That ’70s Show, was winding down its eight-season run. Carsey-Werner became a sales/distribution company, with Jim Kraus, President of Carsey-Werner TV Distribution, and his team, mining the company’s library for off-network sales in broadcast and cable syndication. That library includes over 2,000 episodes of hits on all of the Big 4 networks from the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, including Roseanne and Grace Under Fire on ABC, The Cosby Show, A Different World and 3rd Rock From the Sun on NBC, Cybill and Cosby on CBS and That 70s Show and Grounded For Life on Fox (the latter … [Read more...] about Carsey-Werner Seeking New Streaming Deals For Library In Current Comedy Boom, Starting With ‘That ’70s Show’, ‘Roseanne’ & ‘A Different World’
