    “I just started to think about all the privilege I’ve benefited from in this industry, specifically — being a Jew is a bonus, being a girl as comedian when I was coming up. I had every advantage. Every door opened for me,” she said of the inspiration for the project. “When I started to look around at people that don’t have as successful of a career or are working twice as hard to achieve the same things, I started to feel very gross about myself. On a very fundamental level, I wanted to explore it further … [starting] with my...

    While Hollywood constantly preaches diversity, some of the entertainment industry’s most powerful and influential executives have given almost exclusively to Democrat candidates and left-wing PACs. According to The Hollywood Reporter, nearly 100 percent of the millions donated from the top executives in Hollywood went to Democrats or PACs working to elect Democrats. Of the more than $4 million in federal donations made by the top Hollywood executives and entertainers, 99.7 percent went to Democrats and Democratic-leaning political action committees or organizations, according to a Hollywood Reporter data review of Federal Election Commission records. Only three members of this year’s THR...

    Democracy depends on the ability to end others’ lives before they’re even born, according to one famed feminist. Netflix released a trailer for its new documentary, Reversing Roe, on Sept. 4. The timely teaser for the abortion law film comes during Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearings. The film hits computer screens Sept. 13, and appears to include interviews with abortion activists including Gloria Steinem. The trailer gave a sneak peak of her comments. “It’s the basis of democracy, that you control your own body,” she said in the film worried about Roe v. Wade, the 1973 Supreme Court...

    It appears there has been a recount! As foreshadowed by our August 13 Blind Item, the Kiefer Sutherland drama Designated Survivor — cancelled last May at ABC — has been resurrected by Netflix, with the streamer ordering a 10-episode Season 3. Netflix confirmed the news late Wednesday, while also announcing that Neal Baer (Law & Order: SVU, Under the Dome) has taken over showrunner duties. This marks the series’ fourth showrunner change in two years. To recap: Amy B. Harris (Wicked City) originally served as showrunner on the series (which was created by David Guggenheim), only to be replaced in...
  • Netflix Teen Dramedy Mocks Christianity With Girls Singing Sexual Hymn ‘Sweet Jesus Inside Me’

    From the endless mockery of Christianity and Christian beliefs, to the promotion of all kinds of sexual and gender identity exploration among minors and adults alike, to liberal issues like abortion, Netflix’s newest teen dramedy Insatiable is definitely not anything I would have let my kids watch when they were impressionable, teens. The series is rated TV-MA, but it's clear they're aiming for a much younger audience. Since its release August 10, Insatiable has been met with intense scrutiny and criticism by the liberal media, especially for so called “fat-shaming.” But there are so many other disturbing aspects that go...

    Earlier this year, so-called comedian Michelle Wolf was so disgusting during her performance at the White House Correspondents Association dinner that even liberal media outlets said it might possibly be the last dinner they have. During her performance, Wolf used disgusting jokes about abortion that drew criticism from both sides of the political aisle. Now Wolf is paying the price for her disgusting pro-abortion comedy and Netflix is canceling her comedy show after just 10 episodes. At the dinner, attendees were subjected to a vulgar, profane and bullying attack against women, especially personally lambasting pro-life Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders....

    Liberal Democrats who consider themselves the champions of tolerance constantly show that their actions are quite different from their talking points. Take the case of Israel Broussard, an actor in Netflix’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before movie. After being “outed” for “problematic” tweets and likes -- including liking tweets from Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, President Donald Trump and Florida Senator Marco Rubio – the conservative celebrity has officially apologized for his "inappropriate and insensitive words and likes on social media." In an article written by James R. Barrett for the Daily Wire website, the actor who played...

    <p>Just before he recently departed ABC Studios to embark on a rich overall deal at Netflix, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris sold one last high-profile project to ABC: Bewitched, a single camera, interracial blended family comedy based on the popular 1960s sitcom of the same name. It took a little while for all the deals to close, but the network has given a pilot production commitment to the new take on the classic supernatural sitcom, from Barris and Black-ish writer/producer Yamara Taylor. The project hails from ABC Studios; Sony Pictures TV, which has the rights to the title; and Sony-based Davis Entertainment (The Blacklist).</p>

    19 Aug 20181075 Netflix’s Insatiable star Alyssa Milano railed against President Donald Trump’s nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court, declaring that he will “affect everything we know to be true as American citizens.” Speaking alongside far-left pro-abortion activists including Lauren Duca, Cecile Richards, Jessica McIntosh, Jessica Morales Rocketto and Meagan Hatcher-Mays at the Los Angeles stop of the “Rise Up for Roe” tour, Milano described it as “f***ing absurd” that they are fighting to keep abortion legalized and called on people to mobilize against Kavanaugh’s nomination.

    If you're browsing Netflix for a new show to watch, don't bother looking for reviews on the platform to see if a title is worth your time. The streaming service is done purging user reviews -- a decade's worth of comments praising and excoriating shows, all gone. Under the question "How do I post reviews on Netflix?," the service's Help Center now says: "Netflix customers were able to leave reviews on Netflix.com until mid-2018, when reviews were removed due to declining use.

    Hard to believe, I know, but Netflix has canned the supremely unfunny Michelle Wolf's "comedy" show after a brief run: Well, that was fast. On Friday, Netflix quietly pulled the plug on The Break with Michelle Wolf, one of the only “late-night” shows on “television” hosted by a female comedian, just three months after it premiered. The streaming service also ended the short-lived Joel McHale Show with Joel McHale, but it was the news about Wolf’s show that came as a much bigger shock. That’s because, when The Break premiered in May, Wolf was riding higher than pretty much any...

    Comedian Michelle Wolf's Netflix talk show,"The Break With Michelle Wolf," will not be returning to the streaming service for a second season. Deadline reported on Friday that Wolf's Netflix series had been canceled only about three months after its first episode aired. The show's last episode was released on July 29. Wolf has not yet made a statement about her show's cancellation. The "Daily Show" star gained widespread notoriety earlier this year after giving a speech during the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner in which she repeatedly slammed White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "I actually really like...

    Netflix will not release a documentary about the life of Louis Farrakhan after all, despite the controversial Nation of Islam leader’s claim that it would hit the streaming giant on Wednesday, a company spokesperson told Fox News on Tuesday. “This film will not be released on Netflix. Due to an internal miscommunication, it appeared to be scheduled for release on Netflix, but it is not. We apologize for any confusion this has caused,” the Netflix spokesperson said. Netflix issued the statement after Fox News asked about a tweet sent by Farrakhan to promote the film. “My dear viewers and listeners,...

    Netflix is developing a superhero show from a comic book, and America loves comic-book superheroes. This one is about an American superhero, for modern American tastes, and it’s bilingual so this epic superhero show will be inclusive, too. It involves a boy who suddenly and surprisingly discovers, in the way of all young superheroes, that he has amazing powers. And not just any superpowers. He has power over death itself.-snip- I don’t know much about “American Jesus.” But if you’ve got plenty of lumber and nails and pitch, now might be a good time to start building an ark. We...

    Samantha Bee is demanding women take action against a man who could make abortion illegal. Or so she says. On her show Full Frontal July 18, host Samantha Bee ordered women to get “hysterical” over President Trump’s pick for next Supreme Court Justice: federal judge Brett Kavanaugh. She needn’t worry – they already have. But Bee’s fuss over abortion sounds like crying “wolf” after she called pro-lifers “d**kheads” of “toxic bullsh*t” in 2016 – not to mention other abortion outbursts. And there’s also that time she called Ivanka Trump a “feckless c***.” (Talk about looking out for women, as she...

    (Reuters) - Netflix Inc's subscriber growth and forecast fell short of Wall Street expectations, sending shares of the normally high-flying stock crashing 14 percent on Monday. The company's total monthly customers reached 130 million worldwide, 1 million fewer than forecasts from Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S, as it added new programming including "Lost in Space" and new episodes of Marvel's "Jessica Jones" and "13 Reasons Why." "We had a strong but not stellar Q2," Netflix said in a quarterly letter to shareholders. Netflix said it had "over-forecasted" quarterly fluctuations in the pace of new customers. Before the earnings report, Netflix shares had...

    Ever since Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the Supreme Court, the left has been in hysterics over the very real possibility that Trump will appoint an originalist judge who will, you know, actually interpret the Constitution as it was meant to be interpreted. Their biggest fear is our greatest reason to rejoice: this paves the way to overturn Roe v. Wade. So leave it to someone like Michelle Wolf, the “comedienne” who faceplanted all over the White House Correspondent’s Dinner earlier this year in an attempt to be funny, demonstrating instead her hatred for Trump and everyone who...
