            ‘RBG’ Filmmakers Cook Up Next Project: A Julia Child Documentary (Exclusive)

            ‘RBG’ Filmmakers Cook Up Next Project: A Julia Child Documentary (Exclusive)
            After charting Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s rise to the top of the legal world, the filmmaking team behind “RBG” is reuniting to tell the story of a different kind of trailblazer: Julia Child, the television chef and cookbook author who taught America how to eat.

            Co-directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen will examine Child’s unconventional life, one that saw her seize the spotlight with the 1961 publication of her best-seller “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” when she was nearly 50 years old. She then brought her love of fine food to the masses with WGBH television program “The French Chef,” which was syndicated nationally by PBS, and later, in appearances on “Good Morning America.”

            “She was larger than life, literally,” West told Variety days before flying to France to conduct interviews for the film. “She was 6’2” or 6’3” and kind of clunky in a way, but also totally self-confident and funny and authentic,

            TV Ratings: ‘The Walking Dead’ Season 10 Premiere Sinks to Series Low
            It seems to be the same story every year, but “The Walking Dead” returned for its tenth season on Sunday down significantly in the Live+Same Day ratings.

            The show fell 34% in total viewers from its season 9 premiere to 4 million, and declined 42% among adults 18-49 to a 1.4 rating, as well as 35% in AMC’s preferred 25-54 demographic. The previous series lows in the first two metrics were delivered by the penultimate episode of season 9, which was watched by 4.15 million total viewers and posted a 1.5 rating in the 18-49 demo.

            However, that decline technically isn’t as steep as for last year’s premiere,

            Karen Pendleton Dies: Original Mouseketeer On Disney’s ‘The Mickey Mouse Club’ Was 73
            Karen Pendleton, one original Mouseketeers from The Mickey Mouse Club in the 1950s, died Sunday of a heart attack in Fresno, CA. She was 73. Author and Disney historian Lorraine Santoli announced the news today.

            Known for her shoulder-length blond curls, Pendleton was among the youngest of the original Mouseketeers. She appeared on The Mickey Mouse Club during its entire first run from 1955-59, one of only nine to do so among a regularly changing cast. She famously was paired with Carl “Cubby” O’Brien in the episode-closing “Now it’s time to say goodbye” song. Because of their tender ages, Pendleton and O’Brien originally were “Meeseketeers.” Both were part of what was referred to as the “Red Team” of Mouseketeers, which included Annette Funicello.

            Produced by Walt Disney Productions, The Mickey Mouse Club was a variety show for kids and starring kids. Each day featured a different theme, including “fun with music,

            There’s gonna be a new coach in one of the big red chairs on “The Voice” next spring.

            ‘Search Party’ Moves From TBS To HBO Max For Season 3, Gets Season 4 Renewal By Streamer

            ‘Search Party’ Moves From TBS To HBO Max For Season 3, Gets Season 4 Renewal By Streamer
            TBSSearch Party is becoming an HBO Max original. The upcoming third season of TBS’ cult comedy series will air on the upcoming WarnerMedia streaming platform, which also has ordered a fourth season of single-camera series.

            Season 3 of Search Party, starring Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, Brandon Micheal Hall, John Early and John Reynolds,, will debut on HBO Max at launch in Spring of 2020, two years after it was originally ordered by TBS.

            A critical darling, the dark comedy about a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder, was never well suited for a linear network like TBS.

            Sensing that, TBS brass gave the series a multi-platform launch, which included a binge release of the entire first season over Thanksgiving week, which drew more than 1.1M viewers per episode across all platforms over five days, showing strong appeal to millennials, with 18% of its audience in the adults 18-34 demo.

            Brendan Gleeson to Play Donald Trump in CBS Studios Miniseries Based on James Comey’s ‘Higher Loyalty’
            CBS Studios has found its Donald Trump for its upcoming miniseries based on the former FBI director’s memoir, “A Higher Loyalty.” Brendan Gleeson will play Trump, who figured prominently in Comey’s 2018 memoir.

            The project is written by “Richard Jewell” and “Captain Phillips” writer Billy Ray and comes from Alex Kurtzman’s Secret Hideout and Shane Salerno’s The Story Factory. Filming for the four-part series begins in November, which could air on either CBS All Access or Showtime.

            Aldous Harding roams the lush New Zealand hills in the fantastical new video for “Zoo Eyes.” The track is the third single from her new album, Designer, released earlier this spring.

            Directed by Martin Sagadin, the video features Harding singing the surreal lyrics — “I drove my inner child to a show/It talked all the way home” — against a cloudy backdrop. She assumes different roles in the clip, appearing in a clown-like suit and as a lurid monster that resembles Death from Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal. “It’s

            The Avett Brothers performed their new song “Tell the Truth” on Monday on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Scott Avett took lead on the mid-tempo electronic, piano ballad, with his brother Seth joining in unison during the song’s chorus.

            “Tell the truth to yourself,” Scott sings, “and the rest will fall in place.”

            “Tell the Truth” is a song from the band’s new album, Closer Than Together, which the Avetts say is their attempt at something approaching a political record. But “Tell the Truth” is a typically inward-looking original from the group,

            Busan: Oscar-winning Composer A.R. Rahman Sings ‘99 Songs’
            A.R. Rahman, Oscar-, BAFTA- and Grammy-winning composer of “Slumdog Millionaire”, will world premiere his debut as screenwriter and producer “99 Songs” at the Busan International Film Festival on Wednesday.

            The film, directed by Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy (TV’s “The Dewarists”), will play as part of the festival’s ‘Open Cinema’ strand. The screening will be preceded by a live piano performance by Rahman where he will bow themes from the film.

            “It’s like a fairy tale, where a guy has to write a 100 songs to win the girl, but it’s not that simple,” Rahman told Variety. The peripatetic composer spends a lot of time on planes. That coupled with his post-Oscars composing phase where Hollywood’s comparatively relaxed schedule as opposed to his frenetic pace of life at home in Chennai, India, gave him the time to conceive the idea of writing a film about music.

            Fox and its steady “9-1-1” broke away from last week’s tie with NBC, finishing first last night solo in primetime TV ratings.

            After “9-1-1,” Fox’s “Prodigal Son” slipped a bit from the prior Monday, but it didn’t make a difference: NBC’s “The Voice” and “Bluff City Law” each declined one-tenth of a ratings point as well.

            Though Fox finished first among adults 18-49, the network was last among the Big 4 broadcasters — CBS, NBC, Fox and ABC — in terms of overall eyeballs. NBC had the largest average audience size on Monday.

            Robert Downey Jr. Appreciates Martin Scorsese’s ‘Different Perspective’ on Marvel Movies
            Iron Man himself, Robert Downey Jr., is the latest Avenger to offer his perspective after Martin Scorsese said Marvel movies are “not cinema.”

            Scorsese’s comments gained traction after he compared the Marvel Cinematic Universe to “theme parks,” adding, “It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.”

            Downey Jr. told Howard Stern Monday on the radio personality’s SiriusXM show that he acknowledges Scorsese’s nuanced take.

            “I appreciate [Scorsese’s] opinion because I think it’s like anything, we need all of the different perspectives so we can come to center and move on,” Downey Jr. said.

            Stern probed Downey Jr., suggesting the actor was being “too nice” about Scorsese’s remark.

            “No, really,” Stern responded. “Were you insulted when he said it’s not cinema? That somehow Iron Man isn’t cinema? It is cinema to me.”
