Charlie Rose Markets "#MeToo Redemption" As if it isn’t disturbing enough that there’s already talk of celebrities accused of sexual assault plotting comebacks, known creep Charlie Rose is reportedly going to take part in a new show about famous men dealing with the consequences of their actions. The show, which has already received a ton of backlash, would feature interviews with men including Louis C.K. and Matt Lauer. Read more, including editor Tina Brown’s refusal to produce the show, at Page Six. Samantha Bee Celebrates James Shaw Jr....
In the dimly lit basement of Berkeley City College in 2001, surrounded by her classmates and the flickering glow of dimmed monitors, Tess Sweet was terrified. It was time for her Digital Animation class to showcase their final projects, short animated movies about a character of their choice. At the front of the room, another student unveiled his work: two animated cats crawled to the middle of the screen, paused, and licked each other tenderly on the cheek. The 31-year-old Sweet ran her fingers through...
After one and a half excruciating years, the hit sci-fi/Western Westworld is returning to HBO this Sunday for a highly anticipated Season 2. The trailers, unsurprisingly, haven’t told us much: Will Maeve ever find her daughter? Will more hosts become conscious? How will Dolores' revolution unfold—and who will suffer the reckoning?  But amidst all the confusion, we do know one thing: Clifton Collins Jr. is back. We saw him in both of Season 1’s timelines—first as Lawrence, and later (but technically, earlier) as El Lazo. By the...
Mix the stoner bromance of Broad City with the biting race critiques of Master of None, and throw in a dash of the L Word queer drama, and voilà — Leah Byrd’s new comedy web series, Hot and Bothered. Once upon a time, Byrd was a young black queer girl growing up in an ultra Christian household in Dayton, Ohio. Education was no sanctuary either — thirteen years of Catholic school. Then, one day, she stumbled onto Dannielle Owens-Reid and Kristin Russo's site, everyoneisgay.com, and everything changed...
After nearly breaking the internet by hinting that someone bit Beyoncé, Tiffany Haddish is back with a new announcement: she’s going to be exec producing Unsubscribed, a new comedy series in development at HBO. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Unsubscribed  “will examine female blackness, beauty and identity through a behind-the-scenes look at the Instagram hustle.” Haddish will be joined by co-writers and producers Xosha Roquemore (who appeared in Showtime’s I’m Dying Up Here and Fox’s The Mindy Project) and Danielle Henderson (HBO’s Divorce, Hulu’s Difficult People). This...
If you have felt a visceral absence of ice cream, aviator sunglasses, and dignified government leadership in your life, you are not alone. In these dark times, we must look to animation for solace. Yes, the greatest bromance of all time is getting its own animated series. Barry & Joe is in the very early stages of development, and the theme song by femcee Miss Eaves was released today. Created by Adam Reid, Barry & Joe: The Animated Series follows the adventures of Obama and Biden,...
Since Selina Kyle and her alter ego Catwoman were first introduced by DC Comics in 1940, her character has been portrayed onscreen by Eartha Kitt, Halle Berry, and Anne Hathaway. As a teenage Selina on FOX’s Gotham, though, Camren Bicondova brings something new to the role, and it isn’t just her age: She understands her. “I think a lot of people see her as this very closed-off, very selfish person,” Bicondova tells BUST. “I don’t think she’s selfish. I think her self-awareness makes her think of...
Thanks to Broad City’s Abbi Jacobson, Mozart in the Jungle’s Will Graham, and Amazon Studios, A League of Their Own is getting a brand-new TV reboot. Based on the 1992 classic directed by Penny Marshall, Amazon’s take will look at the film through a contemporary lens, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Though not much information is available yet, we know that Jacobson and Graham will be executive producing the series alongside Hailey Wierengo of Field Trip Productions. Each episode will be a half hour long. Amazon has...
It’s hard to think of a man who personifies the idea of masculinity more than Terry Crews—I mean, he’s literally in ads for Old Spice. Maybe that’s why it’s particularly exciting to hear him, of all people, decry the effects of “the cult of masculinity.”  “That’s the only way to effectively describe what’s happening so you can really understand it. It’s a cult no different than Jim Jones or David Koresh,” says Crews, 49, of the toxic sexism now being confronted by the #MeToo and...

The last time I cried at a reality TV show elimination, I was eight and Sanjaya Malakar was eliminated from American Idol season six. But here I was, a twenty-year-old blubbering over a pixie-cutted woman in palazzo pants who in turn was crying over a man she had been dating for two months — Bekah from The Bachelor. My roommate asked if I was okay; I nodded while shoveling more stale dining hall cookies into my face. It had happened again: I started enjoying what...
