Lin-Manuel Miranda has moved from rapping about the Washington Administration to rapping about the Bartlett Administration. The Tony-winning “Hamilton” creator and “Moana” songwriter has released a new rap set for “The West Wing Weekly,” a podcast that provides in-depth analysis on every single episode of Aaron Sorkin’s famed Bush-era political drama. The show features guest appearances from former political staffers and is co-hosted by “West Wing” cast member Joshua Malina, who provides an insider’s perspective. For this episode, Miranda collaborated with the podcast creator, Hrishikesh Hirway, to create “What’s Next?”, a song named after Martin Sheen’s oft-repeated catchphrase during his run. »

Lin-Manuel Miranda Sings a New Song for ‘The West Wing’: ‘What’s Next?’

16 January 2017 10:14 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

More than 10 years after President Bartlet left the White House, “The West Wing” continues to feel relevant — maybe now more than ever. On the eve of this Friday’s presidential inauguration, “Hamilton” creator/star Lin-Manuel Miranda has written a new song for the West Wing Weekly podcast named after one of the political drama’s most oft-repeated questions: “What’s Next?” Watch below.

“Ginger get the popcorn / The filibuster is in / I’m Toby Ziegler with the drop in / What kind of day has it been?” begins the track, which is accompanied by footage of the show. Created by Aaron Sorkin, “The West Wing” ran for seven seasons between 1999 and 2006 and took place in what increasingly seems like an alternate reality where our elected officials do their utmost to serve the American people rather than themselves. »

Our 100 Most-Anticipated Films of 2017

11 January 2017 9:34 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

After highlighting 50 films that we can guarantee are worth seeing this year, it’s time we venture into the unknown. Rather than regurgitating a list of dated-years-in-advance studio releases, we’ve set out to focus on 100 films we’re genuinely looking forward to, regardless of their marketing budgets. While some might not have a set release — let alone any confirmed festival premiere — most have wrapped production and will likely debut at some point in 2017, so make sure to check back for updates over the next twelve months and beyond. Be sure to keep the following one-hundred films on your radar (with release dates, where applicable). If you want to see how we did with our picks last year (potentially to shame us), head on over here.
