Santa Clarita Diet season 2 confirmed by Netflix

29 March 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Mar 30, 2017

Santa Clarita Diet season 2 is a go at Netflix with a confirmed renewal of the horror-comedy series.

Netflix won't be falling off the wagon with Santa Clarita Diet. The horror-comedy series, unveiled earlier this year with a series of conceptual promos, may have arrived as a bizarre and random genre amalgam of irreverent comedies with the ubiquitous trope of zombies, but it has apparently managed to make enough of a quantifiable impression with streaming audiences to justify the greenlighting of a second helping.

‘Barbie’ Needs Lead Actress, Director & Has To Start Shooting This Summer Because Of Toys

24 March 2017 7:36 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We knew that “Barbie” was never about presenting premium cinema, but the hope was that with the involvement of Amy Schumer as lead actress and even polishing the script by Hilary Winston (“The Lego Ninjago Movie,” “My Name Is Earl“) and Kim Caramele (who has worked with Schumer, as a producer on “Trainwreck,” and producer/writer on “Inside Amy Schumer“), the movie would at least be somewhat more than an extended commercial for a doll.

Nadine Velazquez Talks History Channel's Six and Women's Empowerment

8 March 2017 6:13 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Chicago native Nadine Velazquez currently stars on History Channel's Six as Jackie Ortiz, the sassy and independent-minded wife of Buddha, a member of Navy Seal Team Six.

The show was recently picked up for a 10 episode second season. Velazquez's other credits include Sophia on Fxx's The League, Catalina on NBC's My Name is Earl and Emma Rios on TNT's Major Crimes.

She's also starred in films opposite Denzel Washington (Flight) and Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (Snitch).

We had an opportunity to speak with Nadine about her role as Jackie, women's issues and her upcoming charity project, the Total Beauty Project.

If you haven't yet seen the show (what are you waiting for?!), you'll know that Jackie, like the rest of the Seal wives, is a strong, family-oriented woman who doesn't tolerate much of anything from her husband, Buddha.

It's one of the things that attracted Velazquez to the role. »

Logan: X-23 Creator Pitches Potential Spinoff For The Badass Mutant [Spoilers]

8 March 2017 2:05 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers for the ending of Logan

******

While Logan was a pitch perfect sendoff for both Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, there is little doubt that there is also some real franchise potential for the third mutant of the trinity of broken heroes. That’s right, Logan also served as a highlight for Laura Kinney (a.k.a. X-23), a young girl who was a product of inhumane genetic tampering.

She may have been just a little girl, but she was just as broken as Logan and Charles, and given that the ending of the film saw her heading to Eden with the rest of her mutant friends (The New Mutants?), giving the filmmakers room to take advantage of the character later on down the line.

But where could they take the character? Speaking with THR, X-23 creator Craig Kyle gave his pitch as to what he »

How Drew Barrymore's Gore-Filled Zombie Sitcom Became 1 of TV's Most Relatable New Shows

14 February 2017 1:45 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Drew Barrymore is into werewolves. In a small, dimly lit hotel room in New York City surrounded by a group of reporters, she brushes her perfect California-girl beach waves over one plaid-shirted shoulder and smiles while revealing her preference. "Something about a werewolf gets me hot," she laughs. "Sorry, that came out wrong." It's a sentiment that might sound bizarre coming from any other actress, but much like everything else that comes tumbling out of Barrymore's mouth, it's utterly and disarmingly charming. A similar thing can be said about her new Netflix show, Santa Clarita Diet, which somehow transforms a seemingly ridiculous story about a woman who turns into a zombie (of sorts) into a delightful, incredibly disgusting, and feminist half-hour of television. Sitting at the room's small table, Barrymore is flanked by the show's creator, Victor Fresco, and her onscreen husband, Timothy Olyphant, who is more of a vampire guy himself, »

PSA: This Is Us Star Chrissy Metz Was on American Horror Story

1 February 2017 12:05 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

At this point, we all know and love Chrissy Metz from This Is Us, but once upon a time, she was on another very popular show: American Horror Story. Even fans of both shows may not have realized that Metz starred on season four, Freak Show, as Ima "Barbara" Wiggles, unfortunately and un-politically correctly referred to as the Fat Lady. While she had bit parts on Entourage and My Name Is Earl, she explained to Glamour in February that she was sure Ahs would be her big break: "And then in 2014 American Horror Story came up. I'd wanted the role of Ima [Barbara] Wiggles desperately, and after I got it, I thought, Ok, awesome, this is a jumping board for my career! But when it wrapped, there was . . . nothing. I almost moved back to Florida, but my mom said, 'You can either be miserable here and not pursue your dreams, or »
