and here we go:

Disney Assumes Full Control of Hulu in Deal With Comcast
Disney and Comcast announced a deal under which Disney will assume full operational control of Hulu, effective immediately.

Under their pact, Comcast’s NBCUniversal will retain its 33% ownership interest in Hulu but as early as January 2024, Comcast can require Disney to buy NBCUniversal’s interest in Hulu. By the same token, Disney can require NBCUniversal to sell that interest to Disney for its fair market value at that future time.

Hulu’s fair market value will be assessed by independent experts but Disney has guaranteed a sale price for Comcast that represents a minimum total equity value of Hulu at that time of $27.5 billion.

Disney and Comcast have agreed to fund Hulu’s recent purchase of AT&T Inc.’s 9.5% interest in Hulu, pro rata to their current two thirds/one third ownership interests and, going forward,
Expect bundling with Disney+ and ESPN+ to be a thing when Disney+ launches. Streaming bundling, it's the new cable bundling.

I hope they don’t start taking NBC and Fox shows off of Hulu. The variety is really nice.
That was my first thought as well. Where are we going to watch episodes of NBC shows? Their website?! I think not. Plus, rumors of Universal/Comcast wanting to start their own streaming platform are making many of us groan hard.

Freeform trailer time!


Fuck me. This show is absolutely going to wreck me. Josh Thomas you absolute bastard. Please Like Me was astoundingly good, and this is easily the best show trailer of the upfronts.


Slightly too maudlin for me, maybe it's the music choice.


I still have no idea what to make of this

they also renewed Sirens for season 3

Hyde Park Mounting Mohiro Kitoh Anime ‘Bokurano’ With Showrunner Charlie Craig
Jesus, just say that Hyde Park is adapting an anime as live action, hire an editor please.
Ashok Amritraj’s Hyde Park Entertainment continues its expansion into television with a live-action adaptation of the highly acclaimed Japanese manga series Bokurano. The series was created by celebrated author Mohiro Kitoh and published by Shogakukan Inc.

Hyde Park has tapped veteran writer Charlie Craig (Pretty Little Liars and Freeform’s The Perfectionists) to be showrunner and executive producer the live-action series. Amritraj will be executive producer, along with Rob Golenberg. Addison Mehr and Priya Amritraj will co-executive produce for Hyde Park.
Bokurano is a coming of age series that follows a group of detention-worthy teenagers from around the world tasked with saving the Earth. The eleven-volume manga series has gained cult classic status over the last decade.
okay so that's fine. but what picture do y'all think they have accompanying the article?
A manga cover? Nah.
Something from the anime? lol no.
A hideous nightmare image that someone made for their blog that as far as I can tell has absolutely nothing to do with the anime or the manga?

lmao. of course


Also, googling the thing to see what it actually looked like... can like someone explain? Anyone?

Behind you.
FX casts up "Ms. America" miniseries:
Mrs. America tells the true story of the movement to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment, and the unexpected backlash led by a conservative woman named Phyllis Schlafly, played by Blanchett. Through the eyes of the women of that era — both Schlafly and second-wave feminists Gloria Steinem, Betty Friedan, Shirley Chisholm, Bella Abzug and Jill Ruckelshaus — the series explores how one of the toughest battlegrounds in the culture wars of the ’70s helped give rise to the Moral Majority and forever shifted our political landscape.

AP Bio needs to come back. It is just so funny.
Does season 2 get any better? We watched season 1 and Liked it enough to be happy when Season 2 came, but the first 2 episodes left a lot to be desired. It's like it can't get out of a rut of "Jack does a horrible thing. The kids are roped in. It works out somehow. Jack maybe learns something for 5 seconds" and then the next episode does the exact same thing.

I never watched the Bandersnatch thing but seeing that season 5 picture has definitely made me pumped for the next full season. Is Bandersnatch worth the time? I'm really turned off by the whole idea.

Cancelled and Ending aren't listed separately. It's why Big Bang Theory is also listed as cancelled.
Semantics. However BBT would be cancelled as it's done this season, rather than "ending" next season to air

No matter what, shows not returning have technically been cancelled.

Tiffany Haddish To Host ‘Kids Say The Darndest Things’ Reboot On ABC

‘The Bold Type’ Renewed For Season 4 By Freeform With Wendy Straker Hauser As New Showrunner

Edit:
The Conners Season 2: ABC Expands Episode Order to Nearly a Full Season
During a conference call with reporters on Tuesday, Karey Burke, president of entertainment at ABC, revealed that the hit sitcom’s Season 2 episode order — which was originally pegged at 13 — has been expanded to nearly a full season. An ABC rep declined to confirm a number, but a network source tells TVLine that the second season will consist of 19 episodes. That’s a dramatic increase from Season 1’s 11-episode haul.

I mean, sure, that's true. But without the nuance of "ending" vs "cancelled", people may be prone to misjudging something. Counterpart got cancelled, but luckily most of the threads got resolved, whereas Elementary is ending, and thus will finish on the show's own terms (which may or may not involve unresolved threads).

It really doesn't work like that though. Sites call things cancelled even if they're planned out. I know what you're trying to say, but judging doesn't matter.

Not the person you quoted but give it a few more episodes. I feel like they have sort of moved away from that. It's still there but the storylines and schemes are getting more involved with other people at the school and what they do and interpersonal stories. The relationship between Jack and the kids feels like it is changing for the better as well

What if you could command a giant mecha to fight off invading mecha but you died when you piloted it just one time. A massive bummer of an anime that's pretty good. Also has one of the most iconic themes where sad anime girls tell you to uninstall over and over.

The parents in Mixed-ish need recast.
Weird that they posted the "mixed*ish" trailer with Anders Holm now that he's been recast.
Wow, they actually recast the dad! The mom needs recast too though.

I checked his history. Nothing that was cited since Monday although I'm gonna assume it was his last two posts and they just haven't put the ban notice up yet. Anyway hope theyre back soon
Yeah, it was that. He'll be back soon though!

In the meantime, he wanted me to tell you all that he's finally watched Claws and he thinks it's the best show of all time. I personally think that's going a bit too far, but at the same time I didn't want to argue with another fan - there are so few of us here after all 🙃

When someone's right, they're right, after all.
