"I was just <Speech_Female> trying to make them away <Speech_Female> for myself. <Speech_Female> And to discover that <Speech_Female> it's helped so many <Speech_Female> other people, <Speech_Female> or they feel like it's <Speech_Female> helped them is <Speech_Female> amazing. <Speech_Female> And don't say <Speech_Female> generations, I'm not that <Speech_Female> <Speech_Male> old. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> What <Speech_Male> shows <Speech_Male> other than shondaland <Speech_Male> shows <Speech_Male> do you actually <Silence> really <Speech_Male> enjoy and watch on a <Speech_Male> regular basis? <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> I watch Abbott elementary. <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> I watch American auto. <Speech_Female> Those are the two shows I think <Speech_Female> are just the funniest shows <Speech_Female> right now. <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> watched Succession <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> yellowjackets <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> a couple of those shows, but I'm <Speech_Female> saving that, so you can't tell me anything <Speech_Female> about it. Don't worry. <Speech_Male> Those are <Speech_Male> gathering. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> <Silence> <Speech_Female> I think that <Speech_Female> there's really good shows out <Speech_Female> there. I'm discovering new <Speech_Female> shows. I've been making <Speech_Female> a show for so <Speech_Female> long right now that <Speech_Female> there have been, <Speech_Female> there's been a period <Speech_Female> which I haven't seen anything <Speech_Female> new. So I'm <SpeakerChange> sort of behind. <Speech_Male> You're talking about a <Speech_Male> specific show or just <Speech_Male> all the shows. I'm just saying, yeah, <Speech_Female> like, I haven't had <Speech_Female> a chance to, <Speech_Female> and this is kind of one of my <Speech_Female> greatest pleasures because you <Speech_Female> curl up in bed, and then you <Speech_Female> browse to see what <Speech_Female> shows are out there. And then I <Speech_Female> make a little list of what I'm going to watch. <Speech_Female> I haven't had a chance to <Speech_Female> do that recently. So <Speech_Female> it's been a while <Speech_Female> since I've gotten to really do <Speech_Female> that because I'm <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> doing Queen Charlotte and I'm <Speech_Female> editing Bridgerton. So <Speech_Female> it makes it <Speech_Female> harder to jump into <Speech_Female> something else, but I'm <Speech_Male> looking forward <SpeakerChange> to it. <Speech_Male> In <Speech_Male> your <Speech_Male> mind, are there <Speech_Male> specific things <Speech_Male> that you <Speech_Male> haven't yet accomplished <Silence> that <Speech_Male> you would be upset with <Speech_Male> at yourself if you <Speech_Male> don't at some <SpeakerChange> point accomplish? <Speech_Male> In the film <Speech_Male> industry? <Speech_Male> In show business, <Silence> yeah. <Silence> No. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> I sent this to somebody <Speech_Female> the other day and I was <Speech_Female> kind of shocked to hear myself <Speech_Female> say it out loud. But <Speech_Female> if I retired <Speech_Female> tomorrow, <Speech_Female> I'd be perfectly <SpeakerChange> content. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> Is there a day <Speech_Male> that you can <Speech_Male> envision where <Speech_Male> you actually would <Speech_Male> retire <Speech_Male> or are you going to be <Speech_Telephony_Male> like Norman <Speech_Male> Lear where you're doing <Speech_Telephony_Male> it past a hundred? <Speech_Male> Yeah, I'm not going to be doing <Speech_Music_Male> anything. <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> But <Silence> <Speech_Female> I went through this phase where <Speech_Female> I told everybody at the office <Speech_Female> that I was retiring, and they <Speech_Female> all laughed at me. <Speech_Female> Because they knew <Speech_Female> I wasn't retiring. <Speech_Female> And then I went <Speech_Female> promptly wrote Queen Charlotte. <Speech_Female> I feel like, <Speech_Female> <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> for me, it's just <Speech_Female> about wanting to have <Speech_Female> stories to tell. As long as I <Speech_Female> have stories to tell, I'm <Speech_Female> going to keep doing this. <Silence> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Male> And finally, <Speech_Male> just, you know, <Silence> this is <Speech_Male> a <Speech_Male> <SpeakerChange> real <Speech_Male> big picture one, but I guess <Speech_Male> just many years <Speech_Male> from now, when we're all <Speech_Male> gone, what <Speech_Male> is it, somebody <Silence> <Speech_Male> Wikipedia's <Speech_Male> Shonda Rhimes <Speech_Male> or <Speech_Male> maybe there'll be <Speech_Male> some newer, <Speech_Male> more reliable <Speech_Male> version than Wikipedia or <Speech_Male> whatever it is, but <Speech_Male> what is it that you hope <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Male> say <SpeakerChange> about you? <Speech_Female> That is a legacy <Speech_Female> question. And I <Speech_Female> do not. You don't do those. <Speech_Female> No, <Speech_Female> it's not up to me to <Speech_Female> judge what somebody else is <Speech_Female> saying. <Speech_Female> Maybe they'll be saying <Speech_Female> I'm a hack back then. <Speech_Female> You don't know. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> You're too in it <Speech_Male> right now. Yeah. <Speech_Male> Well, thank you <SpeakerChange> so much. <Speech_Female> Thank you so much. This was <Speech_Music_Female> nice. Thanks. <Speech_Music_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Thanks for listening <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> to awards chatter. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> We really appreciate it <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> and would really appreciate <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement>

"With Netflix was Christmas Day 2020 with Bridgerton number one first season where basically it's like the whole world except North Korea essentially gets it at once. The whole season. Obviously, when network television had that, what do you, what was that like? And the conversation that ensues as a result, again, what you have your background with social media with scandal and all that. But just to have something that you've worked on for that long, go out at once, what's that like? I thought it was great. I mean, it was lovely to have it all out there. I knew how I was growing to watch television. I'm a person who now will save up all the episodes of yellow jackets so I can binge them as opposed to just watching one at a time. I like that binge thing. So I was excited that we were going to get to do that. That was fun for me. And having been through it once before with Queen Charlotte, is you already know how you want to spend that day when everybody else is seeing what you've done. Oh no, I hadn't thought about that. And to me, it's already done. And then it's going to be out, but I hadn't really thought about reaction. In the Emmys universe of which your shows have often been a part of, is it logical to keep network TV competing against cable competing against streaming? Or are they such apples and oranges? You've been on both sides of this. It just feels like, is it a fair fight to put them in the same races? I think everything's evolving. And I think as long as shows like Abbott elementary, compete, then it should be fine. I think that, you know, where television is going as a whole is evolving. And that evolution has to just happen.

"Like Pete had the idea, you know, sort of fully formed and was very excited about it, and we did develop it. But that was really Pete's creative baby. And so for me, it was more about having this great opportunity to make a space for Pete and his story and to sort of shield him under the protection. I always say that sounds crazy, but shield him under the protection of shondaland, which allowed for just a difference in how notes were given and all of that stuff. And Pete had started with you. He had been a baby writer. I don't know if it was private practice or grace. He'd been there, they'd all been there forever. Yeah. And it seems like there's been a number of instances where I mean, you've worked with people for multiple shows over long periods of time. Is do you see it as almost like a farm system where that is the trajectory where if you can do it in the ideal way, somebody grows up the food chain like that? It's nice to have them grow up the food chain because you're not having to reteach anything, but also what was good was, I don't think I ever thought we'd have this kind of longevity. I mean, Meg, marinas, was a PA on Grey's Anatomy season one, and she's running the show now. That idea. I don't think we ever thought we'd have that longevity. And I think I like to work with people I like, and people just stayed. You know, they'd go from one show with me to another show with me. And they just stayed. And so as they grew up, I mean, people who started out as baby writers ended up being co EPs by the end. And a lot of them were just fantastic writers. So getting to have that opportunity to give that space was great. And I wasn't about learning to delegate because I'm very good at that. I'm oddly good at that. I've learned that if you don't let other people do the jobs you've asked them to do, they will be dissatisfied. Sure. One of the things that I think has kind of changed concurrently with and partly because of your shows is the fact that this idea that there are film actors and then there are TV actors, which for most of the history of television was the case, right? There was sort of a segregation. So between, I guess, Sandra Oh, and Kerry Washington, and then right through maybe first and foremost, Viola Davis, who, I guess, did you find it easier to appeal to people who had made their name and film to come work in TV as time went by? It wasn't even my goal. I'd never seen Kerry Washington do anything before I heard her. Seriously. Yeah, I didn't I'd seen save the last dance, but it had been so long ago. I didn't actually connect the two. So for me, it was really just about hiring people who I thought were great and interesting. Viola was different. Viola very much felt like, when it was just a joke, we would say, like, wouldn't it be crazy if we got Viola Davis? And then getting viola was amazing. But it wasn't, it's not how we cast our shows. My shows are mostly cast with fresh faces. That's what makes it fun to me. We get to give people who haven't had an opportunity and opportunity. A leftovers, or

"Like I didn't, I don't still don't feel like that was a revolutionary thing. It just made me feel embarrassed for everybody else that they didn't happen to ever see any people of color. I mean, I didn't know what they were doing. So I guess in your view, there are other things and absolutely correctly that are trailblazing about the show that maybe get overlooked when people start focusing on that. What to you maybe should they be focusing on instead? The incredible number of women who've gone into the medical profession or other sciences because they watch Grey's Anatomy. I get letters from those women. I meet those women. Those women were 12 sometimes when they started and now they're already full doctors. It's amazing to me how many people are focusing on science because of it. And I know also I think you've talked about the fact that there had not necessarily been a show where a female lead was kind of owning her sexuality, things like that, right? Yeah, but also just a show in which the women weren't nice. Yeah. You know what I mean? They weren't. I wanted to write a show about women I knew and all the women I knew were highly competitive. And so it felt more like real women to me to write women as they are not to keep them in a box that somebody's wife or somebody's girlfriend or the Kiki one in the show. I wanted them to be the leads and I wanted them to get to be as unpleasant and interesting as everybody else gets to be. So that was 2005 when it starts, right? Two years into that, you have your second show that you're juggling at the same time with spin off private practice. You then 7 years into that have scandal come into the picture. Did you have any reservations or concern that taking on? I mean, this is a heavy workload at one point. I think you had 70 hours of television season. I mean, not many people have ever taken on bitten off that much. Did you always believe you could do that? And what did you have to kind of, what were the biggest sacrifices that had to be made in order to juggle those? I don't think it ever occurred to me that it was going to be a problem. In the sense that I also didn't believe that I could say no. You know, I was young and I was new to the business and there were these opportunities in front of me. I felt crazy not to take them. It really did. And so for me, it was more about I was like, who knows how long this is gonna last. It could be two years. It could be, you know, whatever. I was trying to build a career. I mean, really. And yeah, it was hard, and it was a lot of time spent. But it was also somehow it worked. I still don't know how, but somehow it worked. What did you feel was the impact on you personally of having now not only a heavy workload, but also a profile that where people kind of you yourself were now very much front and center as well. I mean, I never was comfortable with the idea of being front and center. And most importantly, I couldn't wrap my brain around the fact that I couldn't, I couldn't name any other showrunners that I could recognize. Except for Norman Lear.

"The idea of getting into the world of television was that ever, how did that first kind of even become a possibility? You know, I hadn't really been thinking about television. At the time, I mean, I wanted to television just at the cusp of television became television. But I hadn't really been thinking about it. And then I became a mother. And I can't go anywhere when a baby is strapped to your chest. And I started watching television. And I really started to see, oh, that's where all the great character development is happening. That's where you can sustain a story and really take your character from one point to another. And also, somebody told me that in television, the writer fires the director and found the director fires the writer. And so it felt like a place to have some creative control. Right. So the seeds of what became Grey's Anatomy wasn't just going to be sort of war. No, no, no. So the first thing I wrote and developed for them was a story about four war correspondents for female workers. And I loved writing it. We had a great time, but I didn't know anything about television, and we wrote a pilot that must have cost like $20 million to make. So that wasn't going to happen, but they did say like, oh, we want to do something else. And so the next pilot, I was very smart. I said, what does bob Iger want? Right. And someone said he wants a medical show. And I was like, I'm into medical stuff, surgery. And so I wrote a medical show. And even in the process of just getting a pilot together for the first time, or the second time. Well, they didn't make that first question. They didn't even okay. So it's new territory at that point for you. I guess finding out what is within and without your outside of your own kind of oversight, I guess you're having to learn that and you've talked about just

"I don't know that I had any idea what I wanted to be when I got to school. I was interested in a lot of things. I knew I was going to be an English literature with creative writing major. I knew that was happening. But I came in sort of wide eyed and open. And honed in that I really wanted to be a writer. Did a lot of theater when I was there, but honed in that I really wanted to be a writer. And I wanted to figure out a way to make that a career. So when you graduate 1991, you go off though and start, I guess I read an advertising, how does that then lead to USC film school? It seems like quite a different direction. So I didn't know what to do after school. I was literally that person who had angry that I had to leave college. I would have stayed there forever. And I moved to San Francisco and lived to my sister's basement. And got a job at an advertising agency, which was fine and good, but I knew it wasn't my final stop. I knew it was a job. And then I felt a little lost that lost you feel when you're supposed to know and you don't know. I read an article in The New York Times, I said it was harder to get to USC film school than it was to get into Harvard Law School. And I thought, well, it's education, my parents will be fully supportive of that. And there's writing there. So I applied and went. How many kids would be in a class there at that time? 8, ten. Wow. Those are the screenwriting program, which was smaller. And was it what you hoped it would be? You know what? It was sort of an magical experience in the sense that I had not really even been thinking about the film industry very much at all. I really learned a ton. I made some really good friends. But, you know, film school is for people who already know what they want to do in a lot of ways. Like you have to really know.

"The Hollywood Reporter's awards chatter podcast. I'm the host Scott feinberg. And my guest today is one of the most talented prolific and trailblazing storytellers and hit makers in the history of television. Through her production company shondaland, she was at ABC the creator head writer and executive producer of Grey's Anatomy, which went on the air in 2005 and is still running, private practice, which ran from 2007 through 2013, and scandal, which ran from 2012 through 2018. They collectively made her the first female showrunner ever responsible for at least three shows with runs of at least 100 episodes. And she was also the executive producer of the networks, How to Get Away with Murder, which ran from 2014 through 2020. Varying combinations of those shows filled a three hour block of prime time TV on Thursday nights for 5 years, a truly remarkable achievement. Since moving herself and her company to Netflix in 2017 in a 9 figure deal that made her the highest paid showrunner in television, she has served as the executive producer of Bridgerton 2020 through the president. And the creator head writer and executive producer of inventing Anna from 2022, and most recently, Queen Charlotte, a Bridgerton story, which will drop on the service this Thursday. She was the first black woman to create and run her own scripted network TV series, the 2016 recipient of the producers guild of America's Norman Lear award for achievement and television, a 2017 inductee into the television Hall of Fame, making her only the third black woman ever inducted after Oprah Winfrey and Diane Carroll, and one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world, three times. Each in different decades. In 2007, 2013 and 2021. A woman described by Ted sarandos as one of the great storytellers in the history of television by Julie Andrews as one of the most powerful creative forces in film and television today, and by Oprah Winfrey as the most powerful showrunner in television period, Shonda Rhimes.

"So is it odd they're suing Netflix but not Shonda Rhimes or shondaland? I did find it unusual, typically a plaintiffs will sue everybody under the sun who might have some colorful responsibility or liability. Just to be safe. I'm not saying that there's any wrong about that I'm often you don't know in advance the exact locus of liability and it may not be with Netflix maybe with the production company. The safest thing to do would be here to Netflix because they actually are the ones who quote unquote published it with respect to defamation and you have to show public publication of defamatory statements in order to have a cause of action because if it's not published to the public, then you have been harmed because the harm that the plane of suffrage is from a bad reputation or in this case being shown in a bad light. And so in that sense, clearly Netflix was a proper defendant Williams option the rights to her Vanity Fair article and unwritten book to HBO. Does that play in anywhere here? I'm not sure plays in as a legal matter. It depends on what got optioned if it's just a very broad license to prepare a work about her experience here. It probably does not factor. And in a legal sense, I think it has to have some bearing on wide lawsuit that brought in the first place. A Netflix paid on a Sorkin $320,000 for the rights to her story and made this docu drama, a clearly Rachel Wilson was helping HBO would do the same, but now that Netflix has come to the market so quickly, there may not be no value to HBO in pursuing a project like this. And that may have had a financial impact. I don't know. I don't know the details of her option agreement. But one wonders if that might have been part of the motivation for filing lawsuit here. These things don't normally go to trial, do they?

You know, he's not just going to walk back in there and save you. I don't know. James, would you go like, would you assume that naji Harris takes the leap here and you're offensive line is going to be pretty dang good and then you just you just say to Jameis like we're going to ask you to throw like three times a game so just don't screw it up and you have Chase claypool, Jameis has a big arm, I don't know, something like that, maybe? Either way, I mean, either way, it's going to cost money. Jameis Winston isn't doing one of those saints deals again. I think he showed enough before he got hurt that even he's probably like a 14 or $15 million a year player at this point, right? I don't know. Not for my team, but my team doesn't exist, so. Right. I'm just saying like Ryan Fitzpatrick is like 1617 at this point or whatever it was that he played for last year. If the going rate for that steady mercenary guy. Now that's that market's getting squeezed a little bit because teddy Bridgewater was getting what he had this three year 63. I think in Carolina. Yeah, so I don't know. I mean, we also just trade for Taysom Hill. What do you think, by the way? I mean, I am a Matt Canada guy. You're a Big Mac Canada guy. I think that's putting it accurately there. What do you think? Would you want like, this is kind of baiting you because I know you really like Marcus Mariota, but I see Marcus Mariota as a guy where if you had a highly schemed offense, highly skiing. You could plug Mariota in there and maybe get some stuff going. You know, at least for most of the 2022 season, if you take Mario out of it, if you just had like, you know, sort of mobile traits Y guy X does that intrigue you more than getting a Jameis or a Garoppolo or someone maybe a little more traditional traditional drop back in that met Canada offense. Hell yeah. And you bring on chip Kelly to be assistant offensive coordinator. Or head coach. I don't know, trade Mike Tomlin to like the, you know, just bring like the 2000 would that have been the 2000 12 organ ducks, right? Yeah. Some along there, 2014 drafts of 2013, Marcus Mariota. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I thought Marcus Mariota played really well for the Raiders. And they had him kind of doing the gimmicky stuff by the end, but he was an effective player. I really like that. That's actually like a sneaky, brilliant thing. I hope they're listening to the podcast. He'd look cool in a steelers uniform too, wouldn't he? Well, those are great uniforms. Everyone. That's true on those. I'd look cool in those. Except for every steelers at the game, but yeah, you know. Oh man. And you're all ugly.

From Shonda Rhimes and the creators at shondaland inventing Anna tells the story of a young woman who charmed her way into the pocketbooks of New York's elite. Was she gonna take off with that $20 million from the banks or was she gonna pour it into this foundation? You know, people look at Anna and see what they want to see. On this podcast, you'll get VIP access to the real people who inspired the television series and to the actors and creatives like showrunner Shonda Rhimes, who brought them to life. We were working on the show while the trial was going on. I remember doing a dramatic reading of Todd's opening statement for the writer's room. Who is the fake heiress and Adobe?

Oh, wait, sorry. Is there any do you want to say your name? No, I'm good. Go ahead. We're the hosts of ridiculous crime. People love true crime, right? The mystery, the intrigue, the human frailty. Totally. But what a lot of us don't like is the blood and the guts and the mayhem. Wait, wait, wait, wait, some of us do like the mayhem. Okay, but let's be real. There's nothing funny about murder. Okay, that's right. Our show gives you stories like the kidnapping of Frank Sinatra junior and the max headroom signal hijacking. Oh, so you mean ridiculous stories like the UK cat shaver and Pablo Escobar's cocaine hippos. Yeah, stories like the dudes who stole buzzy the animatronic whatever he was from Disney World, and the woman whose husband tried to kill her but came back from the dead and surprised him at her own funeral. Yeah, that does sound good. You can find this new podcast ridiculous crime all over the place. The iHeartRadio app, the Apple podcast, or wherever you get your podcasts. I don't know how you live. Ridiculous crime. Let's talk jets here, jets are still in that kind of in between in betweens not quite the word, but I don't think anyone's convinced the jets are on the right track, but there are plenty of signs that suggest that they are and obviously they once again have some money to spend here. If Joe Douglas gets the quarterback thing wrong, that's on Joe Douglas, right? But ultimately, I don't think and I hate, I hate playing the game of like who gets enough credit because credit is ultimately our responsibility. And so I'm basically just saying that like other people who assign the credit are wrong. But I don't think that Joe Douglas gets enough credit for how well he's gotten them set up. I think he has them set up really well. So I think from a GM standpoint, it's like, okay, you know, maybe a messed up on some stuff, but you inherited an absolute garbage fire from Mike mcadam. And I think you're cleaning it up as best you can. You have some decent players on the roster. You got two first round picks for Jamal Adams, who's like just like a bad outside linebacker now. It's pretty phenomenal. Where do they put that money at this point? I guess that's the linebacker seems an obvious spot. I mean, you do kind of look at that Robert solid defense and be like, boy, they kind of miss a Fred Warner here. And they certainly don't have that guy. CJ Mosley is a solid probe, but he's not athletically the kind of mover that Fred Warner is. Great up the middle in the secondary there. So I guess that's where you go with it. But yeah, it's an interesting spot, and then on top of that, I mean, you have so many blue Bloods in the AFC now or emerging blue Bloods. It's just, it's gonna be really sad if Zach Wilson doesn't basically become the guy there. Yeah, and he might not. But I think this will be a good evaluation year. Like if he can swim, I think all signs will be pointing up, you know, I'm not saying I'm not declaring the offensive line fixed when you have like Lauren duvernay tardy penciled in his right guard right now, but I think it's gonna be it's formidable. I think that offensive line is you could put it up against anybody, especially if you resign Morgan Moses. But..

"Who's who's really into gaming but has a limited budget and might choose an offering like this over something else. I think that this is not about gaming at all. This is about phantom. I would pay attention to what greg peter said. Because they're not only doing this hiring a person to game development but they're also hiring someone to do podcasting and i bet we're going to see some other unexpected interesting. Hires over the next couple of years where netflix. And this is where i actually differ with you. A little bit justin. Netflix is interested in getting people excited about its properties right. The idea of having properties like house of cards was a big deal. Then the idea of having properties that had fandom like stranger things was a big deal now. Netflix is like our product is not going to be streaming. Our product is going to be fandom. That's my guess. That's what i think this point to is they want to. They don't have them yet. They kind of have it in stranger things. They kind of had it in a protean phase with other things. They want to create franchises. That are big and dominant and last like a marvel does now. That's their goal and this is just one small step and getting there is oh well. Let's create games that bind you to what we're doing. And that's where i differ. Justin is. I don't think they'll make new franchises with the games. I think they will tell stories that maybe they wouldn't have told in the mainline series. I i wish we could figure out a verbiage here that we could make a bet because i think that netflix's brand ease the new is the thing that you have not loved before and then all of a sudden you fall head over heels and while the easiest thing that they could do was skinned a bunch of random stuff until new little interactive chapters of already established. Ip that they have created. I think that the real future for them is to lead in this space. Even if it's just in this kind of interactive storytelling that they've already done with banners match to create new fun and interesting things that you can go in and interact with that. I believe is there real bread and butter that being said again. They've got they've got what i always heard. Was that for net flicks. You are always three months away. From cancelling at the earliest after you like or interact heavily with the thing you watch thing whatever that is the latest stand up comedy special a true crime documentary. Whatever that is. It's your three months away from canceling games. Are just another thing that once you get through all the stand up and once you get through watching the big legacy television show. That netflix has the rights to this month. And then you watch the original movie and then you watch shonda rhimes thing if there's a game for you then you're still another three months away and keeping that ball on the air is netflix's entire operation. I think my theory. Ken work with your construction. Which is yes. We want to keep you three months away and deepening. The connection to our existing franchises is the way to do that. Yeah well. I think i think they're gonna. They're gonna put a bunch of those out there i do. I do think that they are just could do a lot of. I think we can both agree on this. They're going to do a lot of experimentation before they can really say..

Script of hers It ended up not being produced at that time but she received an assignment shortly thereafter to co write the hbo movie introducing dorothy dandridge in nineteen ninety nine which earned numerous awards further star. Halle berry. get out. I didn't realize that she colorado so interesting. Oh wait till you hear the the plethora of things that she's worked on.

But you have heard of her next project in two thousand and one rhymes wrote the debut film of pop singer. Britney spears the starring zoe saldana and taryn. Manning crossroads everybody. I didn't know that she wrote that. Get out up saying. I feel like it's been really it was really panned by the next but maybe for them. Okay no sometimes. It's it's sometimes you just want a nice story about friendship road trimming going on a road trip and having a nice time and may be hitting up a karaoke joint. Heck yeah and singing. I love rock and roll. That's all i'm saying is that maybe it's for them. I think lauren has actually seen crossroads. I have felt you know. She wrote that and then the next thing that she worked on in two thousand four was the sequel to the princess. Diaries called the princess diaries. Two royal engagement. Get out. yeah. I didn't realize that she was so like a dummy. I just assumed like shonda rhimes right out. The gate was grey's anatomy but apparently she was introduced are obsolete reduce. So she's working on all these film things in two thousand three. She actually wrote her first tv pilot. Abc it was about young female war correspondents but the network. Turn it down. You know what they didn't turn down ask project. So here's where sean hillen comes in sean. Billion is the name of rhymes production company shine million and its logo also referred to the shows that she has produced an also to rimes herself. So when we say shaun d land.

"They're watching broadcast TV. They're still there Play up Cape Rabbit ears. I would in fact, say that there might even be a little bit of a resurgence for ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox. Yeah, You're I think that they you know they they've They've gone through the lean times now, man, and they had to figure out what works for a broadcast audience. He stays and that's where you see people like Dick Wolf and Shonda Rhimes. Not just doing one or two shows anymore. Now they're doing just whole Bunches of shows and keeping the lights on at these networks. Chuck Laurie. Every time. Chuck Laurie has a brain fart. He gets a contract to do a sitcom for CBS. You know he was the guy that did 2.5 men, right? That's that he's and he's got the B positive, and he's got the Bob Heart. Taba, Shola and he's got and they just announced. He's gonna do a new sitcom. That's a greater on network TV to fail that got so that guy feels right. I like Chuck. Anyway, I'm just saying that the network TV is not going anywhere local TV and, you know, we know that the newsrooms have been decimated, so they're they're having to work with smaller crews, and there's there's not as much money around is more there used to be. I think everybody was thinking that cable would You know, rule the universe and that and that people would just stop watching local TV and Fox and CBS altogether and turns out cable is kind of like the CDs of television. They were that shite there. That shiny thing that nobody wants anymore. All right, So if you don't want to watch the Super Bowl, give give the people here something they could watch that you just discovered that you think they'd like.

"The crown has landed on my head that way, not a killer. This is the way Yeah, to leave. The killer wasn't offered before me. If you're trying to curse you can't pull shirt. We have so many disasters bombarding us right now. Today, We're gonna talk about Bridge or Tim, one of the hottest shows on Netflix. Right now hot in various ways. We'll talk about that. In less than a month, more than 60 million homes streamed it. Naturally, a second season is already in the works. It is a Shonda Rhimes production. Richardson is set in London during the early 18 hundreds, and it follows the Bridget in family during the social season in which well to do young ladies are presented from marriage. Today is a most important day. And for some, a terrifying one. But today's the day London's marriage minded Mrs are presented to Her Majesty. The Queen. May God have mercy on their souls. Well, we've seen this type of drama in countless Jane Austen remakes. But this show is different in some key ways, namely, it is multiracial. Joining us to talk about Bridget Tin is Melanie McFarland, TV critic for Salon. Hi. Hi. Thanks for having me great to have you. Well, this really is the talk of well the talk of a lot talk of social media. And how did it become such a viral sensation? Well, I think there was already a lot of high expectation around the show for two reasons. One. It's one of very few of any adaptations of what is very much you know. It's a romantic novel. I mean, it's It's part of like the romance novel is just kind of generally looked down upon in literature. There are various reasons for that, and it's not right. But unfortunately, it's kind of a fact. So the fact that this is a serious that is being adapted. I think that already brought a lot of heat with it. And the second thing is Shonda Rhimes got a huge deal that killed her away from ABC and landed her Netflix and this is her first release with Netflix. And so I think a lot of people were curious. You see what that would look like, and it's very steamy. As a Shonda Rhimes production is it's d me? Yes, but I think one thing that Shonda Rhimes does really well in her Syriza is to show the world as she would like to see it, you know, And as she does see it in all of her production, she does have an element of inclusive casting now. With Bridger 10. The way that it's executed is in my opinion, not the best on we can talk about that a little bit more. But she also has its very fantastical way of looking at love, You know, even in Gray's, You know, all of the relationships are in some ways, you know, Even the breakups are, you know, hyper dramatic and kind of hyper fantastic. And here you have this very polite society. You know, with this, you know, all of the glamour of, you know, Regency all around it. To have Shonda Rhimes presented Ryan's production of Granted. It wasn't created by her. It was created by Chris Van Dusen, but to have her name attached to something like that. I think that there was a lot of expectation and for a lot of people, it exceeded those expectations of what a Shonda Rhimes Netflix production could look like. So you notice it from the get go. The first episode you see that The Queen herself is black Queen Charlotte and then later on the main romantic interest, the Duke Duke of Hastings. He is black and Quite fetching if I may say, and but that's not commented on until a while into the series, the multiracial nature of this and I just want to play a clip of a conversation between the Duke and the woman who raised him. About that, because this I think this is the first time that they talk about it. We would to separate societies divided by color until the king fell in love with one of us. I love your grace conquers.

"Down. You do not know me, but I know you. This is what they have been trained for since birth. Which young ladies might succeed at securing a match. We've always amused me, Miss Bridget. Ever since I was a schoolboy, and you were but five. From the ornate costumes to the enormous cast the plummy accents and lush locations. Britain is good fun, which is the result of a lot of hard work. BAFTA nominated veteran director Julie Ann Robinson directed the pilot and executive produced the first episode of Britain as well as directing subsequent episodes. And she joins me now from Los Angeles. Julie Thanks for being with us. Hi. You're welcome. It's good to talk to you. Since you were the part of the show from the beginning. I love to start talking about casting. Did you always know Julie Andrews would be the voice of Lady whistle down? Yes, that was decided before I became attached to the show. It was very exciting, Of course, a zoo child I remember watching the sound of music and just idolizing her. So that was wonderful. The lead. The much sought after but troubled Duke of Hastings was always attached to this project. The actor had worked with Shonda Rhimes before and of course, Shonda Rhimes is corruption company in a production deal overseas, the show How did you all go about finding his match? The actress who plays Daphne? Well, that took a very long time. Um, it was a kind of a scholar to horror situation. We saw many, many people on I came across Phoebe on D just was captivated by her. On I She just has such a modern sensibility. Um, so she was somebody that I loved draw her attention, draw attention to her to everybody else involved, and then It went from there. Really? We had a chemistry read with reggae and then That was how Phoebe happened. She was she's so captivating as an actress. You are a veteran director of people have seen your work orders New black Brooklyn, 99 parks and rec. This is a huge undertaking. I mean, there's these enormous formal balls to recreate these manor homes, costumes, horse rides, duels. For you is someone who's been doing this a really long time. What was the most challenging thing to shoot? The bull room sequences were without doubt the most challenging thing to shoot. They were hundreds of people to choreograph and coordinate. And if you think about it, the scenes are incredibly complicated because You have to know exactly what point of the dance. The dances are going to be when the conversation we're having, because it's happening in the background. So luckily, I have got theater background, so I I drew upon that to rehearse with the actors. We were has thoroughly we weigh curry grafted with the director of photography. And, um, off we went. We were able to hit the ground running when we arrived, because obviously there's never enough time. What about locations where Was it filmed? I know it's obviously film in several different locations. And how did you decide to find how did you find the bridge Return home, for example? Well, the bridge it in home. It's It's so funny. I used to live in a place called Black. He's in London and I would walk past the bridge it in home every day on. So when I arrived when I arrived in London, I just immediately thought off that house. I didn't originally think of the British and home for the bridge turns. I thought of it for the Fed ringtones. And that was actually Chris Medusa and Betsy Beers. Who's a fantastic Producer. She she's the land of Shondaland. She holds herself. They decided to make the switch, and they thought it was a more embracing embracing home than the one that was originally chosen for the For the Fed ringtones. And Chris Van Dusen is the show runner and a protege of Shonda Rhimes. What did you think when this project came about this idea of taking this Rome essentially romance novel and creating television out of it? You know, I can't quite late to the show I the project had been in development to might heard about it on guy was fascinated. Um, I I mean, I'm a huge fan of those romance novels. I Woz. When I was younger, I would read them and think I'm I think that at this moment in time, it's It's exactly. It's just what the doctor ordered. We weren't to know that when we were shooting, of course we were shooting it before the time of Covic. Um But it's uh I I think that it was I always knew was gonna be a tonal question Mark around. It was gonna be difficult to just maintain the toners as a director. Was wanting to, you know, Thread the needle between Shondaland between romance novel between U. K Company between All of these all of these A lot of these issues, and that was always the thing that guided me with questions off. Is this Is this coherent? Is it cohesive? My guess is Director Julie Ann Robinson. We're talking about Bridger iton talking about tone. There's a great deal of humor and shakiness in the show on, I'm thinking six specifically what exactly I want to give first is about the music for using these very, very popular songs performed by Ah String quartet. So you have these fancy balls. He's highly choreographed dances, these beautiful dresses. And then you see yourself. Is that Ariana Grande I I'm going to, um this is the This is the one that caught my ear first, Billy, I'll ish.

"8 51. This is morning edition from NPR news. I'm Tanya mostly, and I'm Rachel Martin. A lot of us are looking for an escape right now, Right? And even though it's tough to get on a plane, you can get into a time machine called Netflix and get transported to a completely different world called Bridget in Show takes place in 18 hundreds era England They're all these amazing costumes that come with a period drama. There is mystery and manipulation. And there is romance My friends there is so much romance. And viewers are way into this so much so that Netflix says the show is one of its most successful Syriza ever. And in its first month, roughly 63 million households are expected to fix their gaze on Daphne and the Duke and all the other characters who we've this story together. But this is not just a fun romp through romantic travails. The show says something important about race and whose stories are told and how so to talk about all this. We've brought together. Aisha Harris, pop culture critic and co host of NPR's pop culture, Happy Hour, as well as NPR. TV critic Eric Deggans. Hey, you guys Thanks for being here. Hey, Rachel. Thank you. Thanks for having us Okay, So Eric Asia we've got romance and we've got Shonda Rhimes, who is very good at entertainment. What's not to love about this show? Well, I know Eric is not a huge romance person and I'm not either, but I do think that Shonda Rhimes Is one of the biggest names in television. People are going to be naturally curious about this. The show is created by Crispin Jason, who is basically a Shonda Rhimes protege, has worked on previous show shows of hers like Grease Anatomy scandal, And so even though she is not the actual career of the show, she has all of her like DNA's flowing through through it. And I think that it's just kind of perfect to see this gossip Girl type of show set in Regency era London with lots of nudity and romance. It's like it's just the perfect combination and something that she wouldn't necessarily be able to do on network TV. Okay, So I have to say I am romance challenge that is raising. But romance seems to be an underserved community on television. You know, Aisha and I were trying to think of The Syrians that might be available to people besides Bridgeton, and we came up with like Outlander on stars and shows on the heart. My chance, So you know there's not a lot out there, and I think it's also a signal to the industry that this is an underserved community, and maybe they ought to be creating more shows to speak to them. So Shauna Rhymes has really made a name for herself for being a creative genius, but also for really prioritizing diversity in her casting, and I mean, we see this in British in right and a lot of people have talked about how it's really significant. It's important to see black people included in this show among British aristocracy. But sure you have both said that shows take on race is absolutely more complex than that. Can you talk a little bit about how you see it? Sure. So. So when you look at virgin Tin you see a several key characters, including members of the aristocracy are people of color. They're not white. But there also seems to be this unacknowledged hierarchy to the people of color. A lot of the key characters and people have the most status. Light skin black people, arguably the show's biggest villain. The Duke of Hastings, Abusive father is one of the darkest actors on the show. And the show seems ambivalent about race, You know, While ah lot of the characters don't talk about race that much and seemed to act as if race doesn't matter. There is this moment where the dick of Hastings, who's Who's the You know, most eligible bachelor in this in this era, he's a person of color. He's talking to the woman who raised him. Her name is Lady Danbury. She's a woman of color as well. And their discussion kind of explains why we're seeing black. People in the aristocracy in this world. Let's check it out way would two separate societies.
The 5 biggest Netflix original series have been revealed
"Netflix. Says these are it's five most-watched original series now. This one is weird to me because we were talking the other day about mandalorian. How it's a real flagship series for disney. Plus it's generated subscribers and big budget and all the rest and we were curious where like we'll netflix's has been around for a while. What is their flagship stuff. And so i. I thought of stranger things i also thought about some of the money. They paid for a lot of those comedy specials I wasn't the the escobar show. What was that called. What norcal narcos was that. Another one yes. Ozark is very good. Okay oh sorry anyway. They've done them as done them. But i saw this list and this list kind of surprise a lot of shows. I never watched or heard of for their top five. Most watched shows and well some of them are recent. Which kind of explains you know. Maybe i'm not necessarily watching him. So some of them are recent but number of coming in at number five with sixty three million viewers by the way in order to be viewer. Show on netflix. All used to do is watch two minutes really just so you know that's the threshold while two minutes which for a series. It's kinda crazy to say you watch the series if you only watch two minutes. But that's the metric that they're using they They got this deal With the former the former producer maker of grey's anatomy scandal. What is her name. Rhymes shonda shonda rhimes. Anyway they produce this show. Renton and sixty. Three million people watched it came out recently. And never heard of yeah. See you've never heard of it. I've never i mean. I don't think it's targeted at us. By the way if you scroll down a little bit oh we don't see image for some reason but if you did see the image you would know it is not targeted at you. Okay and then you go or maybe you feel that that's targeted at you. Don't alley brought from sean to land. Who brought you grazing so her. Production companies called sean dillon. She signed one hundred. Fifty million dollar deal with netflix to make some content and this is one of them. That's coming in number filing number four tiger king. This one i heard of but i never watched. Did you watch that. no i'm with you. I've heard many things about it. Good and bad. So when i saw this have a big number for viewership coming in at number four. I believed it. Because i heard the chatter on social media right around the time. When a lockdown lifestyle was taking off it was a lot of tiger king talk. So i i understand that one. Go number three number three stranger things. That's the other one that i had heard about seeing some of the promotions. Seizing three was the top of the bunch. Sixty four million you can see. Some of these are pretty close. Scroll down to number two this one money heist which is a translation. This was a spanish show that i sure you've never heard of but huge in the spanish speaking world is it. Yeah i've seen The hero image on netflix But i haven't watched it. Yeah i guess it would be subtitles if you watched it. Yeah yeah and then coming. In at number one. The witcher seventy six million. Did you know this. Did you watch this I believe this was a really popular show. I have not watched it yet. You see that's going though to lot of. We did not watch it and we're netflix subscribers. So it's kind of. It's a bit interesting. Yeah but we don't watch anything really. I don't watch enough stuff to even say. Maybe this stuff is amazing. But if you ever if you were curious like what are the statistics of a popular show on netflix. This should give you an idea. Between sixty and eighty million between sixty and eighty million viewers is a hit considered a hit original for net flicks. I'd be curious what the mandalorian pulled off. Because i feel like there's a different level that's why i feel like is a big threat to netflix's model the disney's powerhouse in

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 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

"Morning everyone are you ready for some day leave? Just out today. So Morgan and I are joined again by Kisha Knight Polio. 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. Normally Corsair sells a version of its platform to schools and universities but when schools closed the company offered it to them for free in February fifty campuses were paying for the service today. Sixty eight hundred. Schools and universities are using the platform. The company says course era has also just started to make its courses free to the unemployed through partnerships with state local and international government. The company launched the program last week in Illinois Oklahoma and Arizona linked in to is offering classes in everything from small business management sales skills leadership for free to anyone who wants them unemployed or not normally linked in courses come with premium memberships. Which cost thirty dollars to a hundred dollars? A month courses from these platforms are useful but also quite serious. So what if you're just looking to learn something new for fun? Will you could turn to masterclass which offers eighty courses taught by celebrity? Instructors consider for instance a class self expression from Dragonstar Rupaul. Tennis from Serena Williams were screenwriting from Shonda rhimes. One class costs ninety dollars. In annual all access pass is just twice that much masterclass which is privately held. Says it's enrollments are growing but it's tight lipped and won't give any numbers away. Clearly though masterclasses leaders know how to grab eyeballs with so many of its ideal customers at home. It seems to be advertising more than ever video trailers seem to be all over facebook and instagram streams. The company claims it has an increased. Its advertising budget is just targeting its prospects precisely still. The ads are so ubiquitous that Saturday. Night Live spoofed. M. S. and L.'s. Version parodies actor Timothy. Shell may teaching students. How to wear a Hoodie? And Josie with the teenage former dance MOMS star teaching tick tock skills. Satire is rarely far from the truth. Of course masterclass has such diverse
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.

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.
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.
