"Big Little Lies" sounds amazing
HBO is moving full steam ahead with new content. It feels like every other day I hear about a new project coming to the network. I spent the week watching the incredible miniseries The Casual Vacancy (the adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s novel), and Issa Rae and Snoop Dogg have shows in the works, there’s a Gloria Steinem miniseries in the works, and a host of other projects. Now I have to add one more must-watch series to the list. Big Little Lies is a book that’s being adapted into a miniseries, and Reese Witherspooon and Nicole Kidman are both the executive producers and stars. Click inside for more!
Bound For The Promised Land
HBO Films has announced a new television film project that will tell the tale of escaped slave turned civil rights icon Harriet Tubman based on the biography of her life Bound for the Promised Land. Actress Viola Davis (The Help, How to Get Away with Murder) has signed on to play Tubman in this biopic movie that only seems like the most perfect casting ever. It’s been many years since I studied the life of Harriet Tubman so I think I’m due for a refresher. Considering the high quality of films that HBO has produced in recent years, I cannot think of a more fitting studio to bring the story of Harriet Tubman to life. More »
Action figures, books, TV specials, LEGO play sets and MORE!
After that unsavory business concerning the comments made by Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner earlier today, I’m ecstatic that I have some very positive comic book / superhero news to share right now. DC Comics has announced that the will unveil a line of products designed for female comic book fans. DC Super Hero Girls will be a line of products that will range from books to TV shows, movies to toys and everything in between. While there is no reason that any person of any gender can enjoy anything comic book-related, it’s refreshing to see that DC Comics has decided to gear a line of products specifically for the large portion of their fanbase that is all too often neglected and taken advantage of.

“I’ve got so many tales to tell."
Madonna continues to promote the release of her new album Rebel Heart and the forthcoming launch of her new Rebel Heart Tour in any way she can and this week sat down for an interview with Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2 to talk about thangs. In her chat, Madonna revealed that she’s been thinking about the possibility of writing her autobiography. Maddy reveals, duh, that she’s “got so many tales to tell” and since she made a stunning career telling stories in song, it makes sense that she might be interested in penning her own life story. According to Madge, if she wrote a book like this it would have to cover her whole life story … which is something that I DEFFO would want to read.

"LOOK AT MY TITS!!!"
J.K. Rowling switched gears a while back and published her first novel for adults, The Casual Vacancy. A lot of you were skeptical about the book, but also interested, given the author’s unprecedented success with the Harry Potter series. And someone must have liked the book because it’s been adapted into an HBO miniseries. Judging from this first drama-filled trailer, I will definitely be tuning in come April. Johnny Campbell (of Doctor Who) directed, and the three-part miniseries stars Rory Kinnear, Simon McBurney and Michael Gambon. Peep the video for more!
I co-sign this movement
This is weird. I’ve been obsessing over Amber Rose a bit via her Instagram posts, but I’m actually finding myself aligned with her on an idealogical level and it’s a little bizarre. In just a few key Instagram posts, she took down entertainment articles that fat-shamed her, slut-shamed her friend Blac Chyna, and announced the release of her forthcoming book. So. Yeah. I think I’m in love or something. Click inside for more.
