As TV Consumption Shifts, Streamers Struggle With How to Apply Programming Standards

  • Variety
When she launched her ultimately short-lived Hulu talk show “I Love You, America” in 2017, Sarah Silverman wanted to make a point. This wasn’t a traditional broadcast or cable talk show with content restrictions or language limits — and so she experimented with that freedom on her very first episode.

“Because we can — we’re streaming — why not test the limits of what we can do and see what’s what?” Silverman said, revealing a man and a woman sitting in her audience, both completely nude. “We’re on Hulu, and the human body isn’t something that Hulu deems unviewable!”

Unlike broadcast or cable networks, Hulu doesn’t have a specific standards and practices department — the kind of staffers who examine content and identify anything that might be problematic.

What Hulu does have is a policy where a cross-functional team of execs might be asked to take a look when

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Debuts on Disney+ With Tony Stark’s Emotional Post-Snap Deleted Scene

‘Avengers: Endgame’ Debuts on Disney+ With Tony Stark’s Emotional Post-Snap Deleted Scene
Avengers: Endgame” has officially made its streaming debut thanks to the launch of Disney+, and Marvel Studios has rolled out a handful of must-see special features to go along with the online debut of the highest grossing film in box office history. Five “Endgame” deleted scenes with commentary from directors Joe and Anthony Russo are available to stream. The cut sequences are different from the six deleted scenes that appear on the “Endgame” Blu-ray, and one scene is the much-touted moment between Robert Downey Jr. and “13 Reasons Why” breakout actress Katherine Langford.

The Russo brothers revealed in May during an appearance on MTV’s “Happy Sad Confused” podcast that Langford was cast as the adult version of Tony Stark and Pepper Pott’s daughter Morgan (played by Lexi Rabe as a young girl). Langford filmed a dream sequence in which Tony Stark meets his teenage daughter after he snaps

Watch: Avengers: Endgame Deleted Scene Of Tony In The Afterlife Leaks

When it was first announced that 13 Reasons Why star Katherine Langford had joined the cast of Avengers: Endgame in a mysterious role, tons of theories sprung up suggesting who she might be playing. A common idea was that she could be showing up as Kate Bishop. When the film finally hit theaters, though, not only was Bishop not part of it, but Langford was nowhere to be seen, leaving many to wonder what had happened to the actress and which role she ended up in.

Over the past few months, however, more light has been shed on the situation, with the Russo brothers explaining that the actress was cast as an older version of Morgan Stark, Tony’s daughter, and she shot a scene where she appeared in a vision to Tony after he snapped his fingers at the end of the film. This deleted scene, that would’ve

You Can't Unsee the Family Resemblance Between Josephine and Katherine Langford

  • Popsugar
If you're wondering if actresses Josephine and Katherine Langford are related, the answer is a resounding yes! The Australian actresses have both had major breakout roles in the past year or so, and they're actually sisters who grew up together in Perth before heading to Hollywood.

Both sisters hit the big time by starring in a breakout teen/young adult drama: Katherine, of course, was the original protagonist of the Netflix drama 13 Reasons Why, and Josephine starred in the romantic drama film After. Despite being in the same industry, the sisters apparently try to keep their professional lives out of their personal relationship. In an April 2019 interview with W Magazine, Josephine said, "Everyone asks me [if we advise each other at home], and honestly the answer is no. Not to sound arrogant, but we both sort of know what we're doing."

Of course, since they're sisters in the public eye and tend to keep their professional lives separate,

Golden Globe spotlight: Zendaya deserves first nom for her searing breakthrough turn on ‘Euphoria’

After getting her start on Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up” (2010-13) and starring in several box office hits, such as “The Greatest Showman” (2017) and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” (2017) and its 2019 sequel “Far From Home,” Zendaya has now ventured into vastly different territory headlining HBO’s gritty teen drama “Euphoria,” which could earn her a Golden Globe nomination for Best TV Drama Actress.

Euphoria,” which aired this summer and has been renewed for a second season, follows 17-year-old Rue Bennett (Zendaya) who returns home from rehab in the pilot after a near fatal drug overdose in time to start her junior year of high school. Despite a cautiously optimistic mother, she has no intention whatsoever of staying clean.

Drew Macdonald Offers a Theory of Relativity in ‘Perception’ at Mia (Exclusive)

  • Variety
Rome – In the hours after a blow-out beach party a body washes up on shore, bringing with it unanswered questions for a group of high school students in an Australian town. But in the 24 hours leading up to the body’s discovery, the personal biases and vices of each character are revealed, altering the storyline and proving that truth is always relative.

“Perception” is an 8 x 60’ drama series created by Drew Macdonald and produced by Australia’s Essential Media Group. The show was selected to take part in the drama series pitching competition at Mia this week. Lagardère Studios is handling international distribution and world sales.

Netflix Misses Subscriber Growth Projections for Second Straight Quarter

  • The Wrap
For the second straight quarter, Netflix came up short of subscriber growth projections when it reported its Q3 earnings on Wednesday afternoon. Still, investors didn’t seem to mind, with the streaming giant’s stock jumping 5% in early after-hours trading after the company easily topped Wall Street’s earnings estimates.

Netflix added 6.8 million new subscribers during Q3, narrowly missing the 7 million new customers both the company and Wall Street analysts had projected. After losing U.S. subscribers for the first time last quarter, Netflix bounced back during Q3, adding 500,000 domestic customers. Internationally, Netflix added 6.3 million new customers — a 23% year-over-year increase. Altogether, Netflix now has more than 158 million global subscribers.

Netflix championed the third season of “Stranger Things” in its letter to shareholders on Wednesday, saying it was watched by 64 million accounts in the first month following its July release — setting a show record in the process. (Netflix counts a view

Netflix Q3 Earnings Preview: Will the Streaming Giant Rebound From Its Rocky Summer?

  • The Wrap
Wednesday’s third-quarter earnings report comes at a critical time for Netflix, only weeks before deep-pocketed competitors in Disney and Apple enter the streaming battle. The streaming giant and its shareholders have been through a wild 2019. Netflix’s stock, after rocketing up more than 40% during the first half of the year, has dropped 25% since July, when the company reported underwhelming subscriber growth — punctuated by a decline in U.S. subscribers for the first time since it separated its DVD and streaming business in 2011. Despite the growing pressure on Netflix, analysts are cautiously optimistic it’ll hit its internal projections of about 7 million new subscribers. Ampere Analysis research director Richard Broughton said he’s anticipating a “bounce back” quarter from Netflix, thanks to the return of several prominent Netflix originals, including “Stranger Things” and “13 Reasons Why,” during Q3.

‘The Politician’ Review: Ryan Murphy’s First Netflix Series Is an Empty Teen Comedy About Emptiness

‘The Politician’ Review: Ryan Murphy’s First Netflix Series Is an Empty Teen Comedy About Emptiness
In the first scene of “The Politician,” Payton Hobart (Ben Platt) is in the midst of a college admissions interview at Harvard; specifically, he’s at the height of a clearly rehearsed speech about his grand plan to become the next President of the United States. This clean-cut, over-prepared high school senior has studied past presidents to discern critical shared characteristics, and he’s following in their most effective footsteps to his own seat at the White House. As far as he’s concerned, Ronald Reagan created the modern presidency — “the presidency of television and celebrity.” “People like to think of their presidents as characters on TV,” Payton says. “Most actually never meet them in real life.”

But that’s as close as he comes to talking about Donald Trump, and it’s as close as “The Politician” comes to acknowledging the general state of modern politics as a lawless
