    What a feat — two canceled Fox shows this year made the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter, and now both have found new homes. Netflix has made a deal for comic book drama Lucifer, which will become a Netflix original starting with its upcoming fourth season. The Tom Ellis–starring Lucifer joins cult canceled comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which landed at NBC after the Fox cancellation. Netflix’s pickup decision comes just as the options on the Lucifer cast were about to expire at the end of day today. It follows a big #SaveLucifer campaign that has stayed in the social media...
  • Report: Netflix Bans Employees from Looking at Each Other for More Than Five Seconds

    This is completely ridiculous and could end up hurting more than it helps. Netflix has reportedly banned workers from looking at each other for more than five seconds as part of its new anti-harassment rules. The new policy also bans the company’s film crews from asking their colleagues for their phone numbers, according to an article in the Sun. “Senior staff went to a harassment meeting to learn what is and isn’t appropriate,” an on-set runner told the Sun. “Looking at anyone longer than five seconds is considered creepy.”
  • Federal judge clears AT&T's $85 billion bid for Time Warner with no conditions

    AT&T announced that it was buying Time Warner for $85.4 billion in October 2016. The Justice Department sued last year to block the merger, citing concerns that AT&T, owner of satellite television provider DirecTV, could charge rival distributors more for Time Warner content, resulting in higher prices for consumers. The outcome of the trial could have implications for future deals in the telecom and media industries, as well as vertical mergers, where companies combine with their suppliers. A federal judge said Tuesday that AT&T's $85.4 billion purchase of Time Warner is legal, clearing the path for a deal that gives...

    [FULL TITLE] Netflix Approval Plummets Among Republicans Amid Obama Production Deal, Susan Rice Board Appointment Republican’s approval of the internet streaming giant Netflix has dropped amid the company’s recent embrace of Susan Rice and Barack Obama, according to polling data obtained by Variety. A survey by the research firm YouGov found that Netflix’s positive impression rating with Republicans fell by 16 percent since the beginning of 2018. Meanwhile, the company’s positive impression rating with Democrats has risen by 15 percent in the same period. While Netflix maintains strong overall approval ratings from the American public, data shows that on a...
  • Vanity - Barack Hussein Obama, his wife and Netflix has little glimmer and shine.

    06/04/2018 6:49:49 AM PDT · by JLAGRAYFOX · 32 replies
    Netflix, The power player TV supplier, etc. has badly wounded the "Netflix, Goose that lays the Golden Egg". Clearly committing a dumb business move by hiring Barack Hussein Obama & his wife Michelle to perform film production for the Netflix brand. Hiring a failed, flawed, criminal, POTUS, with no positive legacy whatsoever, is not the sharpest choice in the least. Netflix, in time, will come to suffer the selection they have made. The blow back is in progress right now from their customers, enmasse. In the movie "The Running Man" "Arnie" fights for his life and friends lives against the...

    Michelle Wolf doesn’t think ABC was brave to revive the conservative-leaning Roseanne, nor does she think the Disney-owned network deserves credit for cancelling its biggest hit. On Sunday’s episode of her Netflix variety/sketch show The Break, Wolf weighed in on Roseanne Barr’s bigoted tweet about former Obama advisor Valerie Jarrett, saying, “It’s not a joke. It’s barely a tweet,” and “her excuse for tweeting it was [also] bad. You’ve gotta get better at one of those, Roseanne,” Wolf added. The comedienne then showed a picture from Barr’s most controversial photoshoot: a 2009 spread for the satirical Jewish magazine Heeb, in...

    Hollywood’s left-leaning politics has made the industry a bęte noire among conservatives for decades. But Netflix has made some recent moves that have especially rankled Republicans. In March, the streamer named Susan Rice — former national security adviser to President Obama, and a conservative target in the Bengazi scandal — to its board of directors. Last month, Netflix officially announced an exclusive multiyear deal with the Obamas’ Higher Ground Productions for original programming. And last week, it premiered “The Break with Michelle Wolf” — a late-night-style show from the comedian who delivered a blistering takedown of the Trump administration and...
  • Netflix CEO bundles money for Obama, Netflix gets net neutrality, Obamas get huge contract

    American Thinker ^ | June 1,2018 | Jack Hellner
    So now here is a summary of the Netflix-Obama relationship: Netflix CEO raises large amounts of money for Obama in 2012 campaign; Netflix lobbies and gets net neutrality; and then, around 16 months after Obama leaves office, the Obamas get a contract worth $50 million even though they have no experience providing content. Since Obama, Netflix, and others are so interested in equality, I am sure they will be glad to list all other similar contracts to the Obama's with other men, women, blacks, Hispanics, LGBTQ members, and others. They should highlight the contracts with other people with no experience....

    Okay, I'll say that this started happening after IMDB scrubbed their forum boards -- which I found very useful. The signal to noise ratio was pretty good, but I'm sure they dropped it so's to attract advertisement dollars. Like who wants to invest their money or give advanced information to a website that's likely to get trashed in there forums? Now what's happening over at Netflix that I find upsetting? Films and television series that are not in English. Now I love asian films non dubbed with just Closed Captioning. And I understand that some people don't mind and that...

    Barack and Michelle Obama are raking in the cash, thanks to the influence of a former campaign supporter. The couple last week signed a creative production deal with Netflix that one entertainment-industry source said could be valued at more than $50 million. Ted Sarandos, a major campaign contributor for Obama and the streaming giant’s creative-content chief who oversees an $8 billion budget, helped to broker the deal, the source told The Post. Sarandos and his wife, Nicole Avant, bundled nearly $600,000 in contributions to Obama from their friends and associates during the 2012 presidential campaign. The couple is friends with the...

    They should have realized it wasn’t to the UN where this megalomaniac was headed, but somewhere where BS counts far more than hard work Boom! and Bingo! all at once. The celebratory sound of Barack and Michelle Obama hitting Netflix pay-dirt. Until Jan. 20, 2017 they were just U.S. President and First Lady where they got to torment half of the masses they were elected to serve for eight, miserable, long years.

    On Tuesday, all three network morning shows were gleeful over the news that Barack and Michelle Obama had signed a deal with Netflix to create original content for the online streaming service. Hosts happily touted “a lot of people very excited” about the announcement and cheered that the former president and first lady “got paid,” with the agreement rumored to be worth tens of millions of dollars. Missing from much of the adulation, except for a brief mention on NBC, was the fact that the Netflix executive in charge of content was a major Obama campaign donor. “This morning, the...

The former first couple will, according to an announcement Monday from the company, potentially work on scripted and unscripted series as well as docu-series, documentary films, and features under the multi-year deal. "Michelle and I are so excited to partner with Netflix — we hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world.” Barack...

    TV HAS BRAINWASHED MUCH OF OUR NATION In many of my articles I have mentioned that I don’t watch tv, and haven’t since 1987. Some people have written me and have accused me of doing a self-righteous act in mentioning that. Some have scolded me for inflicting my children with a ‘goody two-shoes, forced piety’. Still others actually accuse me of lying, saying that ‘everybody watches TV’. Well I don’t. And let me qualify that my wife and I do enjoy watching DVDs of all sorts of movies occasionally. And we like some YouTube and some stuff on Netflix as...

    Eighteen years after the collapse of the dot com bubble, US tech companies find themselves in another precarious situation. During the current economic expansion, stocks like Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Netflix and Google (FAANG) have led the soaring Nasdaq stock index. However, valuations have become stretched, and the party may be coming to a dramatic end very soon. The wind has already been taken out of the sails of Facebook. A few weeks ago, #DeleteFacebook went viral after it was revealed that Cambridge Analytica gained access to the information of millions of Facebook users to learn about their identities and influence...
