I remember running through the wet grass, falling a step behind. Both of us never tiring, desperately wanting… The Weekly Static!
Because the world’s a better place any time there’s a little more Better Than Ezra in it – and because I need the world to think that I’m dead until I can find a way to control the raging spirit that dwells within…
The Weekly Static is our righteously desperate-yet-endearing look at the past week in the land of the networks, cable, streaming, smoke signals, cloud formations, and shadow puppets from an interesting, unique and entertaining perspective. At least that’s how it reads on paper… let’s see how this goes:
So we here at The Weekly Static (myself, Rocky, Trejo and Bat-Murr) are making you, our dedicated eye-ballers, these three promises about what you can expect from us free of charge (minus postage & handling):
● Offer a blunt, honest perspective on about five random TV news post topics from the past week that also highlights your relentless team of news-thirsty Bleeding Cool writers and the quality work they do. My views are my views and not a reflection of the opinions of those who wrote the article. Translation? I own what I say 110%.
● Spotlight a news item that we missed when it first hit, but we’re pretty sure you’ll still find it interesting.
● Feed my voracious ego with copious amounts of praise, adulation, social media shares, pizza, Superman Funkos, Eisner Awards, write-in votes for the 2020 U.S. Presidential Election (…keep it movin’…) and a nightly talk show.
“The slate includes the coming-of-age female-driven drama The Honor List featuring a cast that has prominent social media presence including Meghan Rienks (Freakish, Mr. Student Body President), Sasha Pieterse (Pretty Little Liars, Inherent Vice), Karrueche Tran (Claws, The Bay), and Arden Cho (Teen Wolf). Australian director Elissa Down (The Black Balloon, Confess) helms the film written by Marilyn Fu. The movie is also the debut release of newly-launched POPSUGAR Films, the film unit of the popular website POPSUGAR. The movie is set for a May 11 release date.
Studio L will also release Most Likely To Murder which is set to premiere at South by Southwest in March. The home-for-the-holidays noir-comedy stars The Mindy Project‘s Adam Pally, Golden Globe-winning Crazy Ex-Girlfriend actress Rachel Bloom (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) and Mad Men alum Vincent Kartheiser. The movie, which will be released May 1, comes from he writing-producing team of Dan Gregor who directs the film in his feature debut; and Doug Mand, who plays the supporting character, Duane.” (more)
