Ellen Pompeo Hints at Grey's Anatomy End, Khloe Defends Kim's 40th B-Day Trip Amid Backlash
"It's time for some daily. Pop Morgan. Is out today suggested I joined once again by actress kitchen night polio. Thank you for joining us from Georgia. Loving for having me. Thank you. says. They do even. Just in case. Well, thank you very awesome. I want some. Okay. One of your favorite TV shows may be ending grey's anatomy has been on for fifteen years and Ellen pompeo just made a very shocking confession about what is next she tells variety. We don't know when the show is really ending it, but the truth is this year could be at this is also the last year of Ellen's contract. Okay. So Justin. Do you think they should end the show now while they're on top because people are still loving the show. Grey's anatomy is Kinda Sorta like young and the restless in the sense that like it can go forever and could miss a whole year. I'm back watched two episodes and then be caught up again you know what I mean. Yeah and the answer minds right and almost reminds me of the time. Do you remember when the hills was I going off Air Lauren Conrad was going to walk out the church and it was going to finish and she thought the curtains were going. To close and all of a sudden kristen cavalieri walks in and they revamp did I think Ellen pump? POMPEO is gray but the show can survive without her but can't survive without Shonda see. So Shonda, of course, just send them big NETFLIX's deal and it's to my understanding from what I was reading that she is literally parting ways with ABC completely, which may mean she's not GonNa have our hands on this show as much as she has in the past maybe not at all. And without shining once you've created show. Yeah. But once you've created a show, it's your show and I mean who's changed things happen we don't know how her contract is structured it could just be humming net flicks. One hundred percent but do I mean I think ABC has Shonda rhimes was so early in her career I don't think any see would have given Shonda. rhimes so much ownership over that show where she could move it to ABC but I think that Shonda rhimes, this voice, her blood, her sweat is so in this show that yes if shot arrives went to Netflix she will still get her coins from this show and she will let Iran. We'll be run by somebody else. That's does her voice. Okay. So listen I know somebody who used to write for how to get away with murder and he told me that his job was literally pointless because he says we were instructed to come in with ideas and we always did we came in and we said here's this. Here's that here's this but it always went with whatever Shauna had envisioned. Thank you for your ideas. Those are good and all but. We're going to do this. Appreciates the help but what did you say? No I said well, clearly, she has something you know I know it can be frustrating for someone to shoot down your ideas but the longevity of her career and all the shows that she is there's a reason why they've been successful and I know the Debbie Allen has been doing a lot with race mad at me. You know. You never know she still no matter she goes to net she still you know that's still her show. They can't take that away even if she starts creating another network. One hundred percent you know what? I am all about being petty and I heard about the drama shameless ABC for not giving Shonda that extra fast pass at Disneyland Shame on you. But if I'm Shonda RHIMES, I don't give y'all keep the show going on still get the cash I'm not gonNA. You know bitch and fuss about it. I have two kids got college should be four and I love living fancy like Oprah. We'll see what happens but I know there's some diehard grey's anatomy fans that are just not ready to say goodbye yet. So we will have to wait and see okay Khloe Kardashian has a message for the people who are hitting on Kim's birthday trip. She told Ellen Degeneres. She knows this year has been very frustrating for everyone but there Was a good thing. I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town but also its her fortieth, and this is something that she really wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing and being there with all the precautions and everything that we took and being there and how grateful everybody was for the tourism aspect of it and how. So many people said that we were their first party or guests that they've had in months and what it's done like for them to be able to pay their bills or to do. So for their family I mean just hearing those. Yeah. Messages when we were there, it was really a we felt really good and we felt so safe. So safe Wow. You know I knew the minute that first photo went. Oh, here we go. It's GonNa be a firestorm and For me I went to Cynthia Bailey's wedding in Atlanta and a lot of people were giving flack about that I thought about it for ten seconds and when it's a milestone, a wedding or fortieth birthday or something. Of that magnitude, it's hard. Skip it. It's hard to say or I'll just wait until next year. So I completely understand why there was so much backlash but I also understand why you wanted to continue in go on with it because you know sometimes. Life Yeah Kisha. And and the truth is that you know they did everything I think unfortunately, the Kardashian. Sometimes are just a position where you're kind of damned if you do damned if you don't. I'm not mad at him. I'm like, go ahead live your best life you share money you should be able to spend it how you WANNA spend it and they did everything they could to keep people safe in terms of quarantine in terms of getting Kobe task I mean, what more can you ask for it? Some people are upset because they don't have the option to do it, but you know sometimes you you can't just live perilously through the and plan your trip that newest you.
"shonda rhimes" Discussed on Ringer Dish
"Wasn't jam session. I'm really outlet man I'm Amanda Dobbins Hello. Julie. How are you? Good I'm glad to you got to see. How Lovely We are going to talk about a wide range of topics today all gals kind of and that includes Lauren. And just kind of like millennials which I'm like obviously really excited to dig into, we are going to attach on frequent jam session heroines, Chrissy Teagan and Emily Roddick Hausky and first. Let's talk about my beloved America's beloved shot her IAMs who had a bang-up Hollywood reporter profile last week following in the tradition of the Ellen pompeo Hollywood reporter profile man what'd you think loved it? This is extraordinary stuff. This is the kind of thing in this did happen. A few days ago last week and it was time so. We didn't get to talk about it on jam session, but I did get to talk about it with everyone in my personal life, and this is the one where it's like I texted you texted every other group chain I'm on your group chain of Juliette and texted you know it was like recounting it at dinner have just been reflecting my own relationship to the work. I really commend Shonda rhimes for being Shonda rhimes. So the bigger vehicle in the story was that she left. ABC After fifteen fruitful years at least to the outside I think one takeaway by the way she like working in network television is crushing. It is really hard work. She left after fifteen years because she'd created incredibly valuable Ip for herself and for more for ABC, which is owned by Disney, which you may know has a theme park business including Disneyland or did never did until twenty twenty still still exist kinda part of disease problem. And actually, I can speak to this from a point of personal experience. I was once Disney employee when I worked at ESPN and part of the perks of working at ESPN are you get fifty percent off Disney hotels if you go to like a Disney location one of the parks or cruises I would absolutely never gonNA cruise but that's what you're interested in go for it and The also get the famed silver, pass you, and if you're married, your spouse gets one as well. The silver pass allows you and three guests to enter any of Disney's theme parks or free. There's a few stipulations you must be present you the employees or you the spouse of employee I will say it's like very like marriage. Supremacy but whatever we come back to that in a second you get it for free. If you're caught giving someone your past like if you're caught not following this, not only the spirit but the absolute letter of the rural, you lose your silver pass, they're really serious that it and indigenous overpass. You also get like two tickets so you can give out per year and they roll over. So some people like will store them up for years or they're leaving they'll give them away like what are so China I. Think I'm actually surprised that she gaas overpass as an working with ABC because I doubt she was a string of employees of ABC, but probably is part of her deal. She got silver passed but she wanted another one and she was denied and as a result. She looks and affects she took her talents elsewhere. So we gotta dig into this because I wanNA talk about the the story itself and the details that she provides and the experience, and then I also WanNa, talk about how she tells this story in this narrative because all of it's extremely inspiring to me. So she talks about this pass and she talks about wanting an extra pass because she knows the rules that you just explained and she's telling the Hollywood reporter that she wanted her sister to be able to go and take her children because she's not able to go. Because as she says, the Hollywood reporter I have things to do. Like I have several shows to make. But she knows that they're not transferrable. So she emails a friend, not a friend. It's like someone that she works with her contact at at Disney and is like, would this be possible and right off the Bat Disney gives a hard time. They're like we really don't do that. We're very strict about that. That is true. Okay. and. On the one hand I think that's great because treat you know. Treat your employees equally and I think that's that's good. But also as Shana ranch points out in this piece, she brought the company. Chew Billion Dollars. Give or take a it is Shonda rhimes with with respect Juliette. I. Think you would be the first to say that you know Shonda in a as a former Disney employee you would possibly understand that Shana contributed a lot to the company. Yes. And things are very great before. So they give her a hard time and then they're finally like, okay, we'll do this. And then. Her sister and children go to the park and only one of the passes works and so she calls again to have it resolved. And finally makes her way to a Disney executive who I believe says to her on the phone in her memory, and as she recounts to the Hollywood reporter is an important distinction. Don't you have enough. Is Literally what the Disney executive says to Shonda rhimes one of their biggest and most consistent moneymakers while her family member and children are standing outside Disneyland trying to get in. I also WANNA. Add. F. Shonda. rhimes married she would have to silver passes that worked and I do find that discriminatory it's a really crucial point. Yeah..
Shonda Rhimes Recounts How A Disneyland Ticket Helped Push Her To Leave ABC
"Shonda rhimes has finally revealed why she left ABC Ethernet flakes back in two, thousand seventeen, and apparently it all boiled down to a single. Disneyland pass a serious snub from a network executive in a new interview with the Hollywood reporter Rhimes that as part of her contract with the network she had negotiated all inclusive passes to the theme park for herself and her family. But when she called to ask for another pass for her sister, they gave her a hard time about it but eventually gave her past that didn't even work when she called an executive to try and sort things out. She was told quote. Don't you have enough already keep in mind that at this point rhymes had already made the company somewhere around two billion dollars and all she was asking for one, hundred, fifty, four, dollar ticket rhyme says her relationship with ABC was already on shaky ground with the network constantly pushing back over budgets and trying to tone down the content of shows. So it wasn't the first defense, but it was last she said after the conversation she collected herself called her lawyer and told them she was moving to net flix she went on to a one hundred and fifty million dollar deal one of the biggest in streaming history. Wow. way to drop the ball. Disney

Actress a mother and you probably know her from house of pain and the cosby show. Thank you for joining us again and we are. Coordinated, in our Maulvi Pinky we are. Show and here we go. All right. Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either

Insiders scoff at Meghan and Harry's reported $150M Netflix deal
"We've been talking the last couple of days about Meghan Markle and hair, ese. Deal with Netflix. Okay. And there are some reports that have been saying that Prince Harry in Meghan Markle that their production deal signed this week with Netflix could be worth as much as $150 million. And Hollywood insiders are saying Absolutely not. There's no way it could be that much because they're producers, not content creators. So what The comparison is is to some of these deals like Shonda Rhimes, For example, you know who's created Grey's Anatomy on everything. She has a reported $150 million deal with Netflix and then the creator of Black ish Kenya. Barris. Also, that deal reported to be worth $100 million. But there's a top Hollywood agent who says that he'd be shocked if Meghan and Harry's deal was worth more than two million a year because they aren't creating these shows, you know, like Shonda And Kenya are creating the concepts writing. I mean, Shauna writes everything. Yeah, Yeah. Big difference. Mona Content she produces is extraordinary. Unbelievable. I mean, she writes she has a team to about 20. But yeah, I mean her her vision. Her concepts exacts important. You're showrunner and your head writer. They set the tone of everything right. So Harry and Megan, they're going to just kind of source it out and and they're going to hear a name on it. Yeah, and they're going to be producer so they'll put their name on it. But there will be other producers as well.
As Unemployment Skyrockets, So Too Do LinkedIn Learning, Coursera Enrollments
"From one day I'm David Brown and this is business awards daily on this Thursday April thirtieth. Have you learned something new over the last few weeks signed up for an online course on work related skills or maybe decided to take up a new hobby. You are in good company. My friend during the first week of January Lincoln reported that its users watched more than a half million hours of linked and learning. That sounds like a lot but the first week in April learners watched one point seven million hours of classes three times as many same transit true of other online learning platforms to among the heavy hitters in this category is core. Sarah launched in two thousand twelve. The platform offers virtual classes taught by university professors for a fraction of university prices. Since stay at home orders began. The company. Says there's been eightfold increase in enrollment in social science personal development and arts and humanities courses according to The Guardian? That's an unprecedented increase core. Sarah Chief Product Officer Shrub on Goalie told newspaper. So what's happening? Well like so. Many Corona virus related phenomena. A lot of things are happening at once. I of course it's simply that millions of people have been home and while parents are busier than ever trying to help their children learn online. Many people without kids at home have time on their hands. And there's only so much netflix you can watch can hear it amen. In addition millions of us are searching for ways to tame pandemic inspired anxiety both linked in learning and core Sarah have seen enormous enrollment jumps in classes designed to help us manage stress for instance core. Sarah serves up the yield course. The science of wellbeing last year. Half a million students took the course encore Sarah's online platform making it the company's bestseller but that's nothing compared to this year so far in twenty twenty one point. Six million people have signed up for the class and on linked in learning over the last few weeks. People have been gravitating toward classes on mindfulness stress reduction and resilience. And then there's the elephant in the room layoffs as of last week. More than twenty six million. Americans had filed for unemployment. Some people are using. This moment is an opportunity to learn skills. Intended to make them more employable to prepare for job-hunting students are signing up to learn everything from data science and computer to personal branding both core Sarah and linked in are also trying to help solve pandemic related problems.

Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'
"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in.

"shonda rhimes" Discussed on Download
"I mean, you are paying for the privilege using that Jj Abrams or bad robot name in the opening credits or closing credits of your TV show. You know that's really what a lot of this is, although it's worth noting that he is working on his first series. He's created. Alias called them ammonia. And that's four H B O. So he does still put his stamp on certain projects and yet, but to your point, it is it is a question, right? That these companies have to dress, how much do they want to spend big to lock down the marquee, talent versus finding and kind of building up new talent at argue that a good pot, former or media company would would do a little bit of both. You know, you're seeing that with, like HBO kind of helped find and, and move ISA Ray from the digital world to television. And now they've gotten overall deal with her, and she's doing a lot more for them. So insect says, you know, you can kind of do do both and help make someone into that next Jj Abrams or shonda rhimes, or, you know, the next kind of big show runner. But, you know, the other the other question, we're still waiting to hear a lot of details because this deal as much as we've reported the Warner's the final final bitter here. I don't think it's it's fully done on, you know, win when JJ was paramount. He didn't actually do a whole lot for paramount because he was busy directing stars. So, you know, if Warners smart and able to they will, you know, have a part of their, you know, part of pain him five hundred million dollars will be for that exclusively and really making sure that he's coming on board to direct movies for one of others. I'm sure paramount. Feels like they wish they had gotten a little more of his attention on the Star Trek franchise, right? Whereas, you know, instead he sort of stepped away and, and made a couple of Star Wars movies. I do want. I mean there's still a place. Also, just as as you should, as you were saying, sort of be cultivating talent, while also like new talent. While also using big names. There's also some talent who doesn't want to be pinned down. I've definitely seen interviews in the Hollywood reporter and elsewhere, where people creators say they really kind of like the idea that they're free agents and that they can they can guide their projects to destinations where it's more appropriate. And I guess that's the risk. If you are Jj Abrams is getting a lot of money, which is great, but you your stuff needs to fit into the. At forms that Warner media has. And if you've got a project idea that doesn't really fit, maybe maybe you'll lose out, but what you get is guaranteed money, but I can also see why somebody might want to be a free agent and take the end of this project over here in this project over there, because something might be a better fit for Netflix, something might be a better fit for a more niche, streaming service or cable channel. I mean, that's the same argument for why in, in some cases, it can be good to be Sony. You know a, a company a studio that doesn't have a network that they have to sell into they can kind of play the field. I would also argue that, that's you know, if you had looked at JJ deal before the AT and T acquisition of Warner Brothers, maybe it wouldn't have been as appealing. But now that they're this kind of, you know, multi-pronged company with all these different distribution opportunities, including this upcoming streaming service that starts to be a lot more. Compelling to creative like a Jj Abrams because, yes, you're more limited. But you're also you know, you've got a pretty big playing field to work with within one company. It's a big pond that the big fish swimming in because of all of this, what is your take while we're on this subject about sort of where Warner media is in general?.

Lack of media diversity an effect of slavery, BuzzFeed beauty director
"As the beauty director of digital media, giant BuzzFeed, essence, can't make sure it's content is inclusive and sensitive helping to balanced representation and reflect diversity growing up in the southern US state of Georgia. She recalls that she was surrounded by people who always validating, her as a black woman, but it was only later, she said, in an interview with you a news that she realized how underrepresented people of color were in the media, highlighting lack of diversity, as a direct result of the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with MS Gant told Anacom, what media needs to do to change. The narrative my main message was around representation because I work in media, and I think the lack of representation and diversity as we see it in media, whether it's like, TV magazines movies, whatever it is, is that wrecked result of, you know, the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with just a lack of representation the lack of diversity at every level. Well, in media from people behind the cameras that people on the camera to people writing stories, and telling narratives, and so my main message was that, you know, that matters in the media landscape because media such an important tool for education and for helping to change narratives and so change norms, and to help redistribute power. So we were speaking about the facts of slavery today. What do you think it's the importance of still learning about that period of history in the present days, I think it's something that we always have to educate ourselves about it just can't be lost as such a huge part of our history. And you can't ignore it. And you can't act like it didn't happen because it did. And people are still suffering here in the US and all around the world as a result of it. I think that it does a disservice to people who were victims of slavery when you act like that part of our history doesn't exist. So in order to honor them in order to make sure that they're. Our lives were not lost in vain, and that their suffering was not in vain. We have to keep talking about it, and we have to be realistic and acknowledging that we're still paying the price for it even today. And I think that it's important also because we have to do better and it, how it reminds us of mistakes that we've made so that we can hopefully, correct them so he worked for BuzzFeed, can you tell me a little bit about your work, and what specifically do do in order to change the stereotypes that you feel that are still into society, and especially in the fashion world, for sure? So I work at BuzzFeed, I've been there about four years, and I am the beauty director there now. And I guess a short bulletin list of what I do is really helped to shape the tone and language around content, especially as it relates to women's lifestyle and diversity. So I try to make sure that the content is inclusive and sensitive, my role in helping to change their you'll type. It's just by normalizing. Representation and diversity. I think that those things become a thing quote unquote when we don't see them often. And that's why you know, it's such a big deal when there's an all black cast for movie because it's not something that, you see, so often, even though you see all white casts for movies or it's a big deal. When you see a black woman on the cover of a magazine, because traditionally, we have not been on the cover of magazines. We've not been heralded as the standards of beauty. And I think that through my work in acknowledging that and trying to do my part to combat that I try to just normalize that and normalize black people's place in media to normalize our seat at the table, without always a disclaimer, without always saying, you know, here's this beautiful black transgender woman, and here's her story is just like, no, here's this beautiful amazing, awesome human being. And here's her story. Sorry, because I've never opens a magazine or watched TV and saw disclaimer, when it came to white people, it's just what it is. It's the norm. It's the standard. And I'm just trying to make you know, other people apart of that Norman standard just as readily do feel that it's changing somehow or do still feel like it's a lot of just covert. I do. I, I don't know if I believe it's changing for my own sanity and wanting to believe that, you know, we are progressing that humanity is progressing, but I do see small changes. I think that beliefs in how we feel about people, and how we judge people is so ingrained in that own, we're so conditioned to, to judge and make assumptions and treat people, a certain way and there has to be a conscious on learning and desire to unlearn those things. But and I think that is like the part that takes the longest because it's really, really hard to unlearn what she's been taught for so long, but I do see changes in just the up the uprising of black people in the space in media, particularly and the arts and just the unapologetic nece and the creation of their own opportunities to create their own narrative. So we're no longer depending on white. Filmmakers in Hollywood were no long. Depending on white women's lifestyle publications we're creating our own as we've seen with, you know, people like Ryan Kugler overdue for nay, and shonda rhimes and people at a much more micro level like myself, and Julie Wilson essence magazine. We're seeing it at every single level. So in that regard, I will say that I think it's, you know, getting better because we're at a point now where we are empowered enough to start creating some of those changes that we wanna see do you have any personal story that you would like to share that you felt that inspired you throughout your life, or that made you follow this path, or this passion of yours for sure. I don't know if it's like much of a story, but I think just my own experience. I'm from Georgia. I'm from the south and I grew up and black church in the south, and I will say that a black church, especially in the south every Sunday is where you will see some of the best beauty. And fashion that you've ever seen in your lives from the makeup to the hair to the big church hats. And so I've just always been around that representation, and I can honestly say that, that impacted me in such a positive way and made me feel so confident about myself, because the woman that I was surrounded by who looks like me were very confident, and they invested in what they looked like and how they carry themselves and so it gave me this confidence and to a point that I was somewhat unaware of all the bias until I got a little bit older because I was just so rounded, so heavily by people who were affirming invalidated me and my existence as a black woman, and then, you know, my grandmother was a hairdresser. She had a shop attached to the back of her house. My oldest sister is now a hairdresser and owns her own salon in Augusta Georgia, and my parents were very good about keeping media and publications around the house that reflected us as a family. So we watch TV shows that had black. Families appearance always had essence and ebony magazines and the house. So I was always constantly seeing reflections of who I was that significantly impacted the way that I navigate throughout the world. I don't walk with my head down. I wasn't afraid to go after opportunities. I wasn't afraid to have big dreams because that's what I saw people doing around me, who looks exactly like me. And now that I'm older. I'm so grateful for those opportunities and just that experience that I had because I see the benefit, and I and I'm reaping the reward of that. And so now it's become such an intentional part of my own career, you know, talks about it a little bit earlier, but even getting into media and women's lifestyle from a far it can seem very shallow or superficial, but is so much deeper than that for me. It's not about cosmetics. Although I love those things. It's not about fashion. It's about having a seat at the table and being able to be in a position of power to change the narrative, and to change the converse. Station and to expand it and to call people out when they get it wrong and says show, you know, girls who are dark skin, whether they're in the US, whether they're in Africa, whether they're in India that they are beautiful, even though they are left out of the beauty standard and they're left out of the narrative, and that they don't need to bleach their skin. It's, you know, being physical representations also allows me just by simply being there in existing. I'm able to show other girls who look like me that you don't have to straighten your hair if you want to you can because you're the authority on your own body and what you look like. But if you want to keep your hair in its natural state, no matter how tight the curls are or how kinky they are you can do that, and it should just as beautiful, and you don't need to change. There's nothing wrong with how you are physically made up. I think all of those things have definitely played a role into just my conviction and making sure that I get those messages across you were speaking to the use if you could just give them one. Advice to go through life and feel secure and confident of what they are, what would that be? I think that if I had to give the students advice or any young person advice is that your enough, and I know that, you know, we hear that so many in so many different ways all the time. But it's so true you're enough. You have everything you were born with everything that you need in this world to survive and make it through, and I'm not talking about material things. I'm just talking about your components as a human being you're intelligent. You're beautiful. And you know, your perspective and your experience is what makes you special. So when we talk about intelligence and smarts, it's not always like book, smart like you need to do what you have to do in order to get through school. And that's very important. But are you socially aware? How smart are you about your own self and your own abilities? And your own bias sees how, you know, do you talk to other people who don't look like you do you firm those relationships? So you figure out are do you talk to other people and ask about their experiences. Those are the things that make you smart and that make you sensitive and conscious. And so, I would just say, as long as you have the as long as you are able to do those things, then you, you'll have everything that you need to navigate through the world. So don't ever feel like just because you're not reflected in on TV are in a magazine that you're that you're not worthy. Are that you don't have what you need that you don't have the essential tools that you need to make it throughout the world because you definitely do.

I mean, a standing ovation. A couple of minutes into the is not bad. That was that was a lot of energy really early on in the show. Yes. And what happened at the end. I hear something special happen at the end to the end he after the curtain call. He gave a message to people and gave things brought his father up on stage. So he's father also spoken gave thanks to everybody in the production. Everybody who was there. Putting the show together the people from like, you mentioned the family young arch fun. The twelfth people who have received funds from this organization. That's doing the fundraising in Puerto Rico for the arts, the twelve people have received funding from it were there in the audience, and at the very end he pulled out the Puerto Rican flag started waving it wrapped around his shoulders. And it was very very moving. I understand it wasn't just all native Puerto Ricans and the audience like some some some big celebs came to support the men. Well, yes. Yes. Well, you know, Jimmy Fallon was in Puerto Rico and last night, he aired a special show about Puerto Rico, and he was filming outside of the venue right before the start in the audience producer shonda rhimes. Was there watching the show? Jimmy was there. Question was there there was there were some celebrities that came down to the show and that will continue to come down throughout the run of the show. So I mean sure there were celebrities there, but needless to say all of the intention on Puerto Rico was dedicated Lin Manuel. Miranda just just how important is he to Puerto Rico? You just become this incredible figure. He also brought in the height to Puerto Rico for him. He has said many times that it's very important for him to be able to bring his shows to Puerto Rico, even though it's very costly and logistics are complicated to set up a Broadway show in someone he wants to do it because he wants to perform for his people, and he constantly could sing I just want people to be proud of what I made. I just want my country to be proud and my father's country to be proud us me and people are very appreciative of him bringing not just the show, but the attention he's been doing a really big push for Tories him Indiana land, and for people to come and invest in and spend money and small businesses in the island. So it's not just about the fund that he's doing. He's also been doing calling attention to agriculture and coffee and. Getting the island back kind of cheap. So people are very appreciative of him. And just very proud of him being a Puerto Rican roots and in doing all this good stuff out in the world. I know you're a reporter. I know you're an editor. You know, you're a journalist, but I have to ask you. I mean, you have obviously a deep personal connection to Puerto Rico born and raised there. What does all this mean to you personally for me? It was very special to be able to be home for this opening beyond the news of Hamilton, which is an enormously successful Broadway musical being there in the room when he'd open and Puerto Rico having Lynn come back to the row and play on that stage. I used to go to that theater when I was young like school field trips to see place and every Christmas. I would go see their ballet with my aunt there. See the nutcracker. So this is a venue.

"shonda rhimes" Discussed on Scrubbing In with Becca Tilley
"But when we were doing this movie, I was very apprehensive about doing it for that reason. And then Sereny talked and I'm like, we're on the same page. We're, we're going to do this due diligence. We're going to show life at its worst. It's best. It's and everything in between because that's what people will relate to more versus like, okay, I believe in Jesus. Everything's great. Now that all the sunshine came in unicorn. No, that's not how that works. Yeah. I mean, I feel like that's, I think having seen how you are just following on social media and seeing how you are in like it's It's just. just very real in the sense that you're like this, what I believe, but also like there's other stuff going on you. It's not all just like one one straight line. And I think he's seeing this movie and seeing you to doing it together. I was like super excited because I'm thinking this is going to be a real of really good film based on just what we've seen of your acting general. But just like something that feels good, but also berry like deep and meaningful. I'm super excited and I feel like grays people are going to be so exciting. Everyone. Reunion. All show up a weekend Hicks, October twenty six. Quick question. If you do as a person of faith who ended up playing a person of faith and conic person characteristics, did they mold that character around you? Or did you happen to get no addition for this wonderful part now they actually didn't my character. It wasn't revealed that she was a person of faith until I had been on the show for three years. And so at the end of season eight, it's revealed and and I remember when we were starting to work on that episode talking to shonda rhimes and she said, look, I wanna tell the most honest story possible about a person of faith. I want it to feel totally authentic. So please let me know if come, you know the doors wide open, come in pitches stories. Anything that doesn't feel like something you might say, you let us know. So I really took that to heart as a real open door kind of situation and and I walked through that door almost every episode just. To to to to throw my own experience into it and to try to be as sensitive as possible in in telling the most authentic story possible because so many depictions of people of faith are were the butt of every joke or were just so judgmental or recommend lately unrelated -able. And that's just not my community. You know, we're, we're not those people like so many of us like screw up. And then I have to say we're starry, and then we're also just really trying to live out our faith in love the people that we come to contact with. You know, it's not we're most of us aren't that. I, in my community are not trying to impose our beliefs on anyone else, and we're not judging anybody and we have friends in every different walk of life. And so I wanted April to represent that kind of of a Christian. I think that's more what Jesus was about any. Yeah, that's I think what I liked the most was that. I, you know, I feel like a lot of most TV shows there aren't if they are showing anyone who's Christian or faith based, it's they are kind of the butt of the joke or they're like it's a bad light. And so I think that's what I remember when like you in Jackson started how like y'all got married, and then it was like an and you got pregnant was like, how are we going to raise the baby? Like we haven't talked about in this stuff, and it was like, that's real stuff like relationships and marriages were. They don't have the same faith in like, how do you navigate that? So it was real. I mean, I just I could talk about, I could talk to both. No one has time for that. Thank you so much for coming today. I really, really, really, really appreciate it. Everybody go go, go see the movie. It is out October twenty six and it's called indivisible and this Friday. Yeah. Well, Well, my friend, my friend, Dan..
"shonda rhimes" Discussed on Toure Show
"I mean, we've had black films that have made money, but I think that you in the past five years have started to see movies that have consistently made money with diverse audiences. I mean, I'm I, I have nine number one movies, not number one in Detroit, not number one in Atlanta, you know? But nine number one across the boys did some you got it. I did something those weekends that you know much of the film's wish they could have done. I got more audience is going to see my movies than others. And so I'm certainly have been a part along with a lot of other people in showing Hollywood that there's real money to be made in the content. The other thing is that you've got all those storytellers that you named who are hungry and who, and who are doing it by any means necessary. You've got a generation of creators and filmmakers and. Storytellers right now who will not be denied, who are going to figure out a way to get their stories. I feel like in the television space, the success of shonda rhimes and Oprah opening up at own and Netflix expanding the playing field massively. Yes, has changed that a lot of black creators are coming question. Yeah, there's there's more. Hollywood king right now you were pictures than they used to make each studio is contracting area interest too high. So exactly. So what is the thing that led Hollywood? Does the tipping point? What is it was their movie, or was there a success that led them to say is this before Black Panther back may their benefits from this trend? What was the thing that made folks say, let's give more of them a chain economics. It's the economic imperative the business operates under. So again, they were not making money in the same way. They did traditionally with like, you know, a white male star and you just put elements around him and you win like it's the star system is completely upside down. Now, you know what I mean? A star doesn't really mean much when it comes at the actual movies. So what happened was Hollywood had to figure out how we going to bring these other. These marble needed Black Panther right as much as the culture needed. Black Panther marvel needed black pants too, because they needed something to make sure that they continue to feel relevant as big as those movies aren't. You know, there's just there's a shelf life after a while. People will get tired of, you know, comic book franchises, it will happen, but this gave a whole new life to it in a whole new dimension that can open up. So Hollywood needed diverse storytelling to help keep the lights on as crazy as that may sound. They need all those people. You just name. They need to join pills and the spikes and the boots and everybody else to come and create content that's going to bring audiences to the audiences aren't going like they used to. What's your superpower. Well, this is this is where it gets weird. I'm able to turn invisible to react thought. I wouldn't know that nut. What he meant that Joe. What about gay? Really straight answer. I'm glad you asked me time teleport say, was shaped shift. When I go left, she loves looking after. Me faith, faith, brother, yes, faith faith in God, faith in myself. That's what it is surely for you to have gotten here. You went through a lot of knows. Absolutely. And you kept going through the? No. So why? How were you able to keep going when you're getting no from this because you're going out asking a bunch of white people for millions of dollars to tell black story. I'm sure you get forty knows where you get to one..

So you you're just kind of contract to like, bounce on a different things while I'm writing my own pas had a bunch of failed pilots. Finally, I did a pilot with the whites brothers who had done. They just come off Merican pie and it was, but it was before they did about a boy and they were, they had a story. And so I worked with them in the three was created the show on the WB that ran two seasons called off center, which didn't know not enough people saw, but it was there some good people on it. I mean, it was like John chose state a friend of mine. Oh, he's a great guy. So Jason George is like on all shonda rhimes stuff. Cool. Yeah, that's a great. Like I feel like to get that to get a deal with a studio and you're like, I'm kinda set for a while. I have money coming in their different little jobs to work on the where you kind of like can get excited about a new project every so often and keep yourself engage the best and they're disappearing and it's like it's like, oh, you know, like you just feel it. 'cause television is so no one's doing that anymore, really as well. They're doing it. Like if you're Ryan Murphy, one hundred. Right. Phil also not making Ryan Murphy pop into the American vandal right. Something like that. Yeah. That's like something you hear from some people with overall who are like hoping to not get stuck on this dying. Show like there's a show that's failing kids. Euchre in there. Let him fuck in rough things like no, no, no. Have you ever. Have you ever been movie punch-ups that you're never asked to punch up a good movie? They don't need you at that. So when I every movie punch-up I've ever gone to name them because they're out there, but it's like it's a movie that they've shot and it's supposed to be funny and it's not funny. Yeah. And so the studio, just as we'll get a bunch of comedy writers and we'll spend a weekend and we'll just throw jokes at it, which of course doesn't work. Yeah, right. It's like how many, how many oughta Kennedy. Yeah. How many off-camera characters can deliver a lot. What we're just ADR ING jobs. Been in the films you're watching our. Two of them. Yes. So I did that and we had that show that failed. I did. I did a bunch of other failed shows. 'cause on that would wanna brothers deal. Remember they did couple coupling was the British version of friend and they did the American version of the British. Not didn't go, and and that comes up like every three years, right? Coupling reboot in some capacity try. And then I made a fuck steel and like this is my great choice at that moment. But I stand by because I really want develop. The two shows I could go on was, and if I went on this one, I have a lot more money because they would have given a piece of it, but how I met your mother. But when he saw the pie, what I thought like, oh, feels like it's gonna be a lot of work. I'm not sure we're gonna be there and I didn't go there. So I said, I wanted to show where I can do that and develop. And so I chose stacked with Pamela Anderson. Yes. Smart move. Yeah, obviously, genius. Go for. You get it 'cause she works in a bookstore, which has stacks. She's also stat tuning in you. Got me sold on that and then for the books. Yeah, who cares how the mother was? Yeah. Oh, man. Those decisions, though. That's an easy one to look back on in the shower every once in a while. A path diverge in the woods chose way less traveled. Exactly. Okay. We need to take a break. There's just not enough ties time. We're in the nineties. We're just arriving decade. We know. My cliff notes jumps really quick just so we can get you good modern family. So I, there was a writers strike. I didn't wind up working for a year. All my friends.

Claire Foy Says She Was Never Actually Given That Back Pay She Was Reportedly Promised for 'The Crown'
"It's recess, and I did end up seeing mission, impossible fall out this weekend and I can confidently tell you that I did not understand a single thing that happened except that Henry Cavill grew a mustache to try to trick us into forgetting that he was superman, but I'll never forget and they'll never forgive speaking of hiding behind your facial hair. It's time for the news or as I like to call it your recess from the real news. Here we go. A new cooking show is coming to net flix called the curious creations of Cristine McConnell. It was inspired by the Instagram of McConnell who makes weird creepy pastries, and then post pictures of them. We are in the middle of a trend where apps turn into cooking shows nailed it was inspired by Pinterest. This new show was inspired by Instagram, and I think now it's time for a baking show inspired by Tinder where two opposing teams bake an extravagant cake and then take pictures of the cake on a hike. So people know that the cake is outdoorsy and adventurous and then take a picture of the cake with a dog so that the cake seems playful and nurturing, and then add a picture of the cake at a bar so that at some level you're warned that this cake is not looking for a serious relationship that cake is sending a pretty strong message with that bar picture. Don't let the dog picture fool you. It is a trap tenure barris, the creator of blackish and right. Her of girls trip is leaving ABC studios to accept a potential nine figure deal with net flicks. This is just the latest installment in net flicks poaching creator from another network. It just happened earlier this year with shonda rhimes on a separate note. I had to count what nine figures meant on my fingers. And then once I did, I had to Google how much money there is in the world because I was worried that Netflix had maybe used it all buying shows that haven't been written yet Claire Foy who played the Queen in the Netflix series. The Queen was promised backpay after the news broke that she was paid less than her male co star this despite the fact that she was playing the actual Queen from the title now clear for says she has not gotten paid yet, which is very good evidence for my theory that Netflix has used all of the money. This could cause wides. Spread chaos, but don't panic. Money is over. So let's just decide on a new currency right now, my vote is for gently used hair ties or half empty tubes of chat stick either way. I am a millionaire now, the Chilean adventures of Sabrina are coming this fall. It's the reboot of Sabrina. The teenage, witch starring Kieran Shipka who was so ice cold sassy as Sally and madman that I was almost like, whoa, Sally take it easy on your dad, Don Draper. Yes. He brings suffering to literally everyone around him, but you're mean, girl, I roll is going to make him wish he'd never conned his way out of that horror house and even better news. The series will drop on Netflix right before Halloween. Is it just me or do you also suddenly yearn for the holidays? Right smack dab in the middle of summer. Do you feel it too? What are you doing right now? Should we throw on some costumes rosta Turkey and watch? It's a wonderful life. Oh, yeah. And just. One more quick thing over the weekend, Nick Jonas, former Disney star and member of the Jonas brothers, a pop group that was basically Hanson except that they all had Brown hair and didn't want anyone having sex before marriage got engaged to good, Joe pra actress, former Miss World. One of the biggest celebrities in India and friend of Meghan Markle's who wore the sickest purple hat to her wedding. These two got engaged after dating for two months. So I just wanted to give you a heads up that the rapid celebrity engagement is here to stay and I couldn't be more thrilled getting to know each other is for normal people when it comes to my famous is I want couples and I want them immediately. Do you hear me celebrities? You'll get a fiancee, you get a fiance, and just when it seems like you should be going on your third date, boom, you get a fiancee, here's how I want my celebrity relationships to go.

Of the dry grass and brush that would continue the fires spread March as it was moving south they're hoping that they'll be. Able to stop it there, and hopefully then start to get those containment. Numbers three hours. South of. There there is more fires burning KPI TV's and Drean Ikano from Napa there are homes on both sides of this area right here where seven homes have been destroyed so they're really concentrating. On making sure that this fire doesn't pick up with the wind and that no other homes are burned Throughout the night CBS news update on that piper KCBS news time twelve thirty two YouTube line of television, programming YouTube.

Smith Kirsten Dunst and Robert Downey junior are, headed your way Robert Thompson is a professor, of TV and popular, culture at Syracuse university he joined KCBS anchor Susan Kennedy to talk more about the streaming TV landscape stuck a. Little bit about original programming. It's being done by what Netflix Hulu and now YouTube which isn't new to the game but I guess they're really stepping it up. Right then of course you know, we still think of who's been. Around by the way for for quite a while it started in April of two thousand five. So compared to a lot of these other operations Hulu is getting to be one of the old legacy program providers but for Many, years we've thought of Hulu as a place that you would go to. Watch user generated, videos cats playing pianos dogs on skateboards and. That kind of thing now we're seeing. YouTube signing up some of these big names much like Hulu and Netflix yeah and you mentioned Hulu Netflix seems to be a DVD. Rental service and until not that long ago I mean this is the. Summer of two thousand, eighteen it was the spring of two thousand thirteen so only five years ago that house of. Cards debuted and then it was five years ago this July this month that orange is. The new black debuted and that's what really started to, net flicks, revolution so, it's right and then wasn't that long ago that Netflix was a company that uses. The post office exactly exactly so I mean. Was this a natural evolution then for these companies, to start doing original programming I think so I mean I think, everybody now Now is trying to make sure that they've. Both got the distribution system, but they've also got a. Deep well of programming as well because. After all Disney is going to have their own online service. And that's gonna take a lot of stuff already. Has a out of the out of the pool HBO's got their own things CBS has got their own. Thing, so. I, think Netflix, is making all this stuff just to make sure that people keep having to? Subscribe to Netflix. Because there's, so many things going Now these these YouTube things some of them are more exciting than others when. You hear Will Smith that. Gets you pretty excited but from. The looks of that it's going to be a live broadcast in September on his birthday where he bungee jumps out of a helicopter so that's it I. Guess that's exciting The other hand the the key and Peele appeal who of. Course did get out he's doing a six. Episode comedic Sifi anthology that sounds like that. Could be a promising and Kirsten dunces thing, is ten episodes long so it's going to be hard to judge how good any of this stuff is going to be. Until. We see it okay so it sounds like, everyone is, trying to I guess a drive subscriptions. To their premium? Services is that correct does that YouTube I think is is looking to have programming that they can give advertisers a predictable problem with advertising and YouTube is, every now and again weird stuff appears on YouTube and that can. Corrupt the advertisers reputations this. Will, be predictable programming well I, guess the the buffet so to speak is. Now like so diverse if you have people like shonda rhimes David Letterman. On that flex why not Robert Downey junior and Will Smith on Hulu and? YouTube no that is absolutely true I mean once upon a time in the early fifties radio. Was the big, medium and all the big stars were, on radio and they didn't. Want to go near television because it was. The poor poor cousin then of course network. Television was the big medium and nobody wanted, to go to cable that was the second class citizen that is certainly no longer the case with direct to internet matter. Of. Fact right now if it's a twenty one, year old, kid were offered a feature film to. Direct or a? Netflix series my guess is they'd probably choose the Netflix series Robert Thompson he's a professor of TV and popular culture at Syracuse university the bloodsuckers of summer, are multiplying their Bruhns in our backyards so what are the best.

"Like they're in that show almost fan service for politics like giving the political junkies what they want you know it's just like in in star wars where they had like these little scenes i gave the allusions back to previous episode ready player one where it's all like fan service just i i'm tossing out like nostalgia for you it's almost like that for politics i feel this way about an issue and the characters just mirroring what you feel exactly no one's struggling with it the one that i'm trying to remember that was more recent was a black teenager gets shot in his own backyard and it's like so clearly ripped from the headlines because that happens like every week and tragically just happened just having again and so of course i feel the same way that shonda rhimes in her writing team feels about this kid however her about this this whole thing that keeps happening in our country so the family shows up and the only people in the whole scenario that think that the cops were right to shoot a kid in the back in his own backyard are the cops and none of the doctors and none of the nurses and none of the family and so i'm sitting here looking at this going like if you're really trying to teach something you're missing the teaching moments because the only teaching moment happens is when people disagree and people listen to each other and understand and then you then you get that person to see how they were wrong but an amd era cop who's has two lines and is not really a part of the show we don't have any investment in whether or not they change or care we only have that investment in the main characters so the writers of tv shows need to be willing to sacrifice one of their main characters.

"And it was like a funny someone had a funny plot to us like oh there's going to be there would have been a seinfeld episode where they all voted for trump in the end for escalating reasons selfishness yeah so like jerry was i wanted to sleep with a high trump supporter or something so georgia to curry favor with steinbrenner or kramer they're like accidentally because he couldn't right and julia louis dreyfuss did it because like peterman yeah something it would yeah i'm glad though shows are april okay i'm glad that we had our that could be a political ahead a shared experience didn't evolve into a hot button issue but here's the thing so you've got grey's anatomy and it's very clear how that i can tell how at the very least how shonda rhimes feels but probably how writing saffy lls be liberal hollywood because every single episode there's a hot button issue comes up and they are it's an issue and they're putting it out there and they're telling you how you feel how they feel and even though a lot of how they feel aligns with how i feel i feel like they're trying to tell me teach me something and when i'm watching grey's anatomy i'm not trying to be taught something i also get the fact that they have a platform and people are watching their show and if they think there's something important to say they wanna share it so that's so you and you should as an artist you always wanna use whatever platform you have to say something and be the voice of something so i get that too but it has become so that concept host become so one dimensional that it's is not representing me either so despite the fact that all of their characters are liberal and all their the somehow feel the exact same way about all of these topics and it's very similar the way i feel i don't feel represented in that show because that's because they don't even seem to have to struggle with it.
