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
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.

Sonic the Hedgehog is to return for a sequel, after the

The future for Latino voices in mainstream entertainment looks to be a little
brighter with the announcement that the Disney+ family series Diary of
a Future President has been greenlit for a second season. The series,

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 been determined. Hailed as “the most
beautiful woman in the world,” Hedy Lamarr 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.
In an unusual move, Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, HBO,
Starz and other major Hollywood players are using their corporate social

Saturday-night schedules to cover protests breaking around the country in
reaction to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, while the
nation’s three main cable-news networks featured ongoing coverage of public
dissent instead of regularly scheduled programming.
