Happy Disney+ Day to all who celebrate

All Other TV News

It’s Disney+ Day, the day when Disney releases first looks and premiere dates for upcoming series and movies, announces new series and movies, and generally tries to convince their shareholders that EVERYTHING IS FINE even though Netflix just overtook them in terms of market valuation. They’ve dumped a lot of news this morning, so I’ve tried to put each piece in the appropriate category below. In terms of other, non-title-related news, Disney is not ruling out doing more same-day releases on Disney+, unlike Warner Brothers, who seemed like they were shamed into promising to go back to theatrical-only releases.

In which Julianna Margulies explains what everyone who is honest with themselves knows: streaming is just better for the creative process than networks and their advertising requirements:

Could I ever do a network show again? The answer I finally come to, especially after doing The Morning Show, is no. I feel like I put my time in. I did a combined 13 years of network television between ER and The Good Wife. And what you see with streaming services and cable is, there’s no time issues. If an episode needs to be 52 minutes long, it is—or an hour and 10 minutes, or 48 minutes. The advertising doesn’t get in the way of the creative process, and I see the benefits of that tremendously. I know it used to drive the Kings [The Good Wife creators Robert and Michelle] nuts when we had to hand in a 43-minute cut every week, even though we shot probably an hour-and-15-minute show. It killed them, and I’d say, “What happened to that scene in the bedroom where I’m talking to myself?” And they’re like, “We didn’t have the time.”

I think you can do 10 great episodes of a show. I don’t think you can do 23 great episodes of a show. There’s always going to be a filler episode. I had it said to my face: “This episode is not going to be so great. It’s a filler. We just got to do it so we can get to sweeps.” I never want to be in that position again. 

You’ll soon be able to easily share 30-second clips of Amazon shows on your phone, which is just smart and free marketing, honestly.

Wait, is Lil Nas X really going to be on Maury next week?

Or is this all an elaborate plug for his single and video, “That’s What I Want”?

(I think you probably know.)

Dominion Voting Systems keeps suing Fox News and I am here for it.

Yes, Christopher Walken painted over an original Banksy painting on a British show called Outlaws — and Banksy was in on it the whole time.

Sadly, the death toll from Astroworld climbed to 9 yesterday, when one woman who was hospitalized passed away. A 9-year-old boy remains in a coma at this time.

The students at Dave Chappelle’s alma mater in DC want nothing to do with him.
