For your deliberation
Back in March we learned that Scandal actress Kerry Washington signed on to star as Anita Hill in an upcoming HBO biopic film that will tell the tale of the 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Clarence Thomas, the man that Hill accused of gross sexual harassment. Today, we get our first look at Washington in character as Hill on the set of the HBO biopic film Confirmation, in production now. The film is being directed by Rick Famuyiwa (whose excellent new film Dope opens in theaters this Friday) and executive produced by Washington herself.

"I'm scared ..."
Oh man … when I first learned that Will Ferrell and Kirsten Wiig were starring in a Lifetime made-for-TV movie titled A Deadly Adoption, I had a feeling it would be something that I would have to see. The short teaser trailer we got last week looked promising but the just-released extended trailer embedded above proves it … THIS MOVIE IS A MUST-SEE. What do you get when you mix Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig and Jessica Lowndes in a schlocky television drama? You get pure gold, apparently. OMG, I can’t believe how excited I am to watch this mess. A Deadly Adoption premieres on Lifetime next Saturday, June 20.
June 20, yes for real
Last week we learned the surprising news that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig will be starring in a ridiculous made-for-TV movie on Lifetime this month titled A Deadly Adoption and today we get to feast our eyes on the FIRST TRAILER for the TV movie. Based on a true story, A Deadly Adoption is described as “a high-stakes dramatic thriller about a successful couple (Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig) who house and care for a pregnant woman (Jessica Lowndes) during the final months of her pregnancy with the hope of adopting her unborn child” … and then, I’m assuming, MAYHEM STRIKES! When this TV movie was revealed last week, many people believed that it was a hoax of some kind … and maybe it is a hoax … but it is also a real TV movie that will premiere on Lifetime on June 20. Check out the teaser trailer above and see if it looks like something you’d like to watch. I am definitely going to tune in, I can’t wait :D
"Oh, HELL YES!"
Another year, another Sharknado made-for-TV movie is coming to Syfy … and today we get our first look at the latest installment in the TV movie franchise — Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! This time, the Sharknado action moves to our nation’s capital where the flying sharks wreak havoc on Washington D.C. LOL. Even tho I’m not really a fan of these silly movies (which is surprising, I’m sure, since it would appear that I’d be into this kind of thing), I have to give some bit of love a TV movie franchise that keeps both Ian Ziering and Tara Reid employed. Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! will premiere on Syfy on July 22 — WHO’S EXCITED!?
"The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong"
OK … this is really weird. A couple of months ago, The Hollywood Reporter caught wind that Will Ferrell and Kristen Wiig would be starring in a made-for-TV movie for Lifetime and after they reported the news, Ferrell seemingly got so pissed that the secret was spoiled that he made it appear that the movie would be scrapped and would never be released. This week, billboard advertising the June 20 release of this odd Lifetime movie titled A Deadly Adoption started popping up all over LA, letting us know that the movie is being released after all. I mean … it sounds like a mess. The movie tagline for A Deadly Adoption is The Birth of a Plan Gone Wrong. LOL, OK. And the billboards have the glaring error that the movie will be released on SUNDAY June 20 when, in fact, June 20 is actually a Saturday. MESS. Click below to learn more about this Lifetime made-for-TV movie starring Will Ferrell and Kirsten Wiig and make your plans to watch … or not. 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 »
The Next Generation of Villains
Way back in December of 2013, we first learned that Disney was planning a TV movie that would focus on the children of some of the most infamous Disney villains — Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella de Vil and Evil Queen. In June of last year, we got our first look at the cast of this new TV movie, Disney Descendants. Last December, we got to see the first teaser video. Today, we get the first full-length trailer … and our first really good look at the movie’s plotline. Obvs, this TV movie is intended for kids but it’s cool to see how much fun Disney is having with their bad guys. Check out the trailer for Disney Descendants above and get ready — the movie will premiere on the Disney Channel this summer.

I randomly ended up spending my entire night with Whitney Houston last night, totally on accident. I was in Anaheim, CA for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend when Lifetime aired their biopic Whitney so I wasn’t able to watch it live when it aired. It was recorded on my DVR but after I got back home from my weekend away, I wasn’t able to get around to watching the movie before I had to fly off to Detroit for most of last week so … my first chance to watch the movie was last night. After I watched the biopic, I watched a bunch of Whitney Houston interviews and then … it was 2 AM. More »
