Good news for thirsty bitches everywhere! Bottomless mimosa Idris Elba continues to make money moves and recently signed a deal to star in an adaptation of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame for Netflix. This the second project he’s announced with Netflix, the first being the Manny/DJ comedy Turn Up Charlie. That Manny/DJ show sounds cringey on paper. But it’s a comedy so it could be fun. But Hunchback is like, high brow art for grown-ups, right? No more dicking around with turntables and nobs and no more singing, Idris. Just give us some darkly brooding hump flexing.
Back in February, Amazon let it be known that there would no longer be a reserved spot in their parking lot for Jeffrey Tambor after completing an investigation into allegations that he harassed several women on the set of Transparent. Amazon and Transparent co-creator Jill Soloway clearly didn’t want anything else to do with Jeffrey. Netflix, on the other hand, doesn’t share the same feelings. A spokesperson for Netflix confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that Jeffrey will be appear in the fifth season of Arrested Development.
Any questions you may have had about the 4th season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt (Did New York ever fully recover from Hurricane Tammi (with an I)? Did Boobs in California inevitably go double platinum?) have now been replaced with one: WHY??? Because that’s all I can ask after finding out that the 4th season of Netflix’s Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt will be the last.
Idris Elba’s got some whickety-whickety-whack news for his fans. No, it’s not that he’s married (not yet at least). It’s that Idris will be relying on his skills on the ones and twos for his upcoming Netflix comedy series where he will play a DJ/manny.
Amy Poehler’s directorial debut will be in a Netflix comedy which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, is about a group of “longtime friends who go to Napa for a weekend getaway to celebrate a 50th birthday“ and for some reason it’s not called White Girls (And Maya Rudolph) Trip. Seems like a missed opportunity to me but they’re going with Wine Country as the title. In addition to directing, Amy will also be producing and is cramming as many of her lady comedy cohorts into the cast as she can.
Netflix is out to ruin your childhood while simultaneously damaging future adults by trying to scare the bejeebus out of them as children with their super serious remake of Lost In Space. It’s a Netflix Original Series that looks like an expensive feature film and it also looks absolutely terrifying. While the general plot may be the same, Netflix has ditched the camp and embraced the FX for LIS 2018.
