There is a Prince documentary coming to Netflix and I am HERE FOR IT.

A Prince documentary by Ava DuVernay is coming to Netflix. The filmmaker has been given the blessing of Prince’s estate to make the documentary and has been given full access to his archives and unreleased music. “Prince was a genius and a joy and a jolt to the senses,” DuVernay said in a statement to Deadline. “He was like no other. He shattered every preconceived notion, smashed every boundary, shared everything in his heart through his music. The only way I know how to make this film is with love. And with great care. I’m honored to do so and grateful for the opportunity entrusted to me by the estate.” YESSSSSSSSS. (I would normally include this story in the “In Development” section, but my deep love for Prince forbade it. Also, it’s my blog, I do what I want.)

Curious about how much the kids on Stranger Things made per episode? Or how much ABC is paying Alec Baldwin for that talk show no one asked for? Wonder no more.

Heathers had to be pulled AGAIN in the wake of the synagogue shooting. The show was originally scheduled to air early in the year but was pulled from the schedule after the Parkland school shooting. It’s a telling statement about how violent our society has become that they couldn’t air the entirety of this series over the course of five days without a mass shooting happening in the middle of it. Sickening.

I don’t usually post about wrestling news here because who cares. But reportedly, John Cena is refusing to participate in the WWE’s “Crown Jewel” show in Saudi Arabia following the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. If you have seen the last couple of episodes of Last Week Tonight, you know that John Oliver has been slamming the organization for going forward with their plans to host the event in Saudi Arabia, and I thought it was interesting that Cena, the WWE’s biggest star, officially pulled out.

Hey nerds, it looks as though the Game of Thrones prequel is going to be set in Essos.

OOH, INTERESTING: Two of your favorite Stranger Things characters were originally supposed to die in the first season.

Apparently, FX passed on Broad City because it was “too girly.” While that is infuriating, it sounds like Comedy Central really understood the show and it was the right place for them to be.

Steven Yeun says that playing Glenn on The Walking Dead made him feel “beige” and “cramped,” which is mostly interesting because he is one of the most beloved characters from that show.

Shannen Doherty basically called out her former Charmed co-star Holly Marie Combs for being an asshole about the reboot. But I mean, not in so many words, but that was the gist of it.

If you’re looking for something scary to watch in the next 36 hours or so, Vulture has a decent list of the scariest episodes of television. All of my absolute favorites are in here, including The Twilight Zone‘s “Living Doll,” The X-Files‘ “Home,” (~shiver~) and “Tooms,” Buffy‘s “Hush,” and Lost‘s “The Man Behind the Curtain.”

FilmStruck may be dying soon, but you can stream nearly 400 classic movies FOR FREE on this site if you have a library card.

Fun fact: This World Series was the lowest-rated in four years.

NBC doesn’t want to pay Megyn Kelly the entirety of her $69 million contract. Get the popcorn.

“There is no invasion. No one is coming to get you. There is nothing at all to worry about.”

And when Matt Drudge is mad at Fox News, you know they done fucked up.
