Jon Stewart to Host New Current Affairs Series for Apple TV+:

Jon Stewart is returning to television with a new current affairs series at Apple, the company announced Tuesday.

The untitled series, which has been picked up for multiple seasons, is described as a “one-hour, single-issue series will explore topics that are currently part of the national conversation and his advocacy work,” according to Apple. Each season will be accompanied by a companion podcast which will “continue the discussion.”

Apple TV+ Signs Seth Rogen & Rose Byrne Comedy, PLATONIC

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne Reteam for Apple Comedy Series ‘Platonic’ – Variety:

Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne are attached to star in a new comedy series that has been ordered at Apple, Variety has learned.

Titled “Platonic,” the half-hour series will see the pair reunite with Nick Stoller, who directed them in both of the “Neighbors” films and also worked on the screenplay of the sequel. The show has received a 10-episode order.

“Platonic” explores the inner workings of platonic friendship. A pair of former best friends who met in their youth (Byrne and Rogen) reconnect as adults and try to mend the rift that led to their falling out. As their friendship becomes more consuming, it destabilizes their lives and causes them to reevaluate their choices.

Hey, whatever gives me an additional, non-Ted Lasso show worth recommending from the service.

Tenacious D Does The “Time Warp”

It’s astounding… time is fleeting… and the 2020 election is here. Time to ROCK-Y THE VOTE! And remember: it’s just a jump to the LEFT, and not a step to the right!

An absolutely perfect cover. Seventeen-Year-Old Me is losing his mind over this.

I’d kinda be into Tenacious D covering the entire Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack?

Netflix Signs Deal to Launch ASSASSIN’S CREED TV Series

‘Assassin’s Creed’ Live-Action TV Series in the Works at Netflix | Hollywood Reporter:

Another massive video game franchise is getting the TV treatment.

Netflix and Ubisoft are teaming to bring Assassin’s Creed to television and will develop a slate of properties based on the best-selling game. The first project under the pact is a live-action, genre-bending adaptation of the game. A search is under way for a showrunner for the project, which is currently in the development stages.

Honestly, the television format is way better for Assassin’s Creed than the movie format.

They could easily change assassins and eras season by season to freshen up the show, which I know is sort of Netflix’s want to keep things new and different.

An interesting note here, though…

The deal for Assassin’s Creed will also see Netflix and Ubisoft mine the game’s trove of stories for other live-action, animated and anime series based on the global franchise.

So, it sounds like this is just the beginning for the franchise.
