A new Netflix original series is making its way to your computers, televisions and tablets and this time, it’s entirely in Spanish.
The streaming giant announced their plans to create a comedy series entirely in Spanish. The show will be directed by Gaz Alazraki, who created one of Mexico’s most popular movies, Nosotros Los Nobles (We Are The Nobles). The show will run for 13 episodes and star Nosotros Los Nobles actor Gerardo Mendez.
No word yet on the name of the series, but it will reportedly be a satirical look at the world of professional soccer and is set to be released in 2015.
Some big names in the acting game are headed to the Saturday Night Live stage this May.
According to reports, Andrew Garfield, Charlize Theron and Andy Samberg are each slotted to host the show at some point during the upcoming month. Garfield, who plays Spider-man in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, will host the show May 3. The following week, Charlize will return to SNL for a second time, while funny-man Andy will host his former show’s season finale on May 17.
Joining them will be musical guests Coldplay, The Black Keys and St. Vincent.
In movie news, The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants is slated to get a third installment in the film series.
“The Sisterhood series is one of Alloy’s most cherished properties and we are looking forward to continuing it’s legacy with “Sisterhood Everlasting” nearly a decade after the first film was released,” Alloy Entertainment’s president, Les Morgenstein, revealed. “The original film brought together an incredible group of talent who we hope to unite for fans once again.”
The first and second films in the series starred actresses Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara and Amber Tamblyn. None of the former cast members have signed on for the third film as of yet, though we’re crossing our fingers.
The drama ain’t over for the Real Housewives Of Atlanta.
Earlier this week, viewers watched on in horror as the reunion show went from hostile to absolutely explosive in just a matter of moments. The reunion brought together the entire RHOA cast, including Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams, who have a long-standing beef. That beef came to a head after Kenya pulled out a bullhorn and began slinging insults at Williams, leading to a physical altercation.
Fellow castmate NeNe Leakes took the stage at The Arsenio Hall Show to talk about the reunion and the fate of the show and trust us, you don’t want to miss this interview.
It’s a good day to be Elmo.
Kevin Clash, the man who famously voiced Sesame Street character Elmo for 28 long years, has been cleared of three charges of sexual abuse after a court of appeals threw out the case.
The 53-year-old was accused by multiple men of sexually abusing them throughout the course of 10 years; each of the men were minors when the alleged sexual abuse occurred. Multiple lawsuits were filed against the puppeteer, but in July 2013, a judge ruled that it was too little, too late and were outside the statute of limitations.
According to the law, such lawsuits must be filed within six years of the event, or three years after the plaintiff’s 21st birthday.
Kevin left his job as Elmo in 2012 after the allegations were made public. He denied all claims, saying any and all relationships had occurred with consenting adults.
