From the Office of Greg Daniels and
Steve Carell (with an all star cast
featuring John Malkovich), Space Force is
a workplace comedy series that centers on a group of
people tasked with establishing the sixth branch of the
United States Armed Forces, the United States Space
Force. Carell's character, Mark Naird, is the general in
charge of the effort and the series follows his
collaboration to get "boots on the moon" per the orders
of the President. Air Force Lieutenant General Mark
Naird is promoted to full four-star general and is
hoping to take over as the Chief of Staff of the Air
Force. However, he is appointed as the first Chief of
Operations of the newest United States military branch:
the United States Space Force. A fresh and original
premise based in reality. A great cast of comedic
talent, but doesn't lean on the fame of it's lineup.
Great writing, so you're not sitting through predictable
jokes and plot points.
Survive The Night
An action thriller film directed by Matt Eskandari and
starring Bruce Willis, Chad Michael Murray,
and Shea Buckner. It follows a doctor who is taken hostage along
with his family inside their homes after two injured criminals break in. The
film is well-paced and the camera work is slick. Bruce has a surprising larger
role then I expected as the grandfatherly patriarch and he's effective enough to
keep be engrossed. The rest of cast are admirable. With the stand out being,
Shae Buckner who plays a unhinged but sympathetic criminal and does well to add
layers to the role.

After being in development at Showtime for more than two years, the Gal Gadot-led
Hedy Lamarr has instead moved to Apple TV+, with the tech
giant giving the project an eight episode limited series order. The show will be
executive produced by Gadot (Wonder Woman) who will also star, and
Sarah Treem (House of Cards). A release date has not

was first exalted and iconized, then destroyed and eventually forgotten by
American audiences, all the while keeping her brilliant mind active through a
series of inventions, one of which became the basis for the spread spectrum
technology we use today.
