“When we started referencing other movies that are telling a story like this, they’re all like ‘Norma Rae,’ ‘Blue Collar.’ They’re all ’70s stories. People haven’t been making very many stories in that culture in a while actually,” director Craig Zobel told IndieWire.
What came from the process was a 10-episode season set in the western Pennsylvania town of Braden. Set against the backdrop of a mysterious death at a steel mill, the resulting story winds its way through a factory town kaleidoscope of individuals, all via the path of a single dollar bill.

Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully manages to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan with the help of a white surrogate.
BlacKkKlansman tells the story of real-life police officer Ron Stallworth’s (John David Washington) undercover mission to infiltrate the Kkk. However, Spike Lee is less interested in telling the story as it happened and more interested in using it as an allegory for the current political struggles occurring in Trump’s USA. And for the best.
The central focus of BlacKkKlansman is of course Ron’s infiltration of the Kkk, which sees him pose as a white man over the phone while his white partner Flip
Going back to the days of natural afros and Motown funk, Lee steers a strong cast – including John David Washington (son of Denzel) as the title character – into a crazy ride of subterfuge and exposure of a hate group that was still incredibly influential during that era. The story, according to Lee, is (asterisks theirs) “crazy, outrageous fo’ real, fo’ sh*t” truth, as a black rookie cop makes a call to the Kkk, and sends a white colleague to represent the false character he had convinced them wants to be a new member. The film has humor,

Ron Stallworth, an African-American police officer from Colorado, successfully managed to infiltrate the local Ku Klux Klan and became the head of the local chapter.
There is a rather on-the-nose joke early in BlacKkKlansman as Colorado Springs’ first recruited African-American officer Ron Stallworth is prepping to go further undercover into the Ku Klux Klan. Ron is initially convinced that the hate group is all arrogant talk and unlikely to resort to physical violence, to which a co-worker replies that he is very naïve for a black man (especially at this point in time and place during the 70s). The conversation uses that humorous retort to then crack jokes regarding how
Set in Colorado Springs in the early 70s, Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is set to become the local force’s first black policeman. With his nappy hair and groovy gear, he is very much the outsider, coming across the unit’s unthinking racism as black suspects are referred to as ‘toads’. After a period spent sorting files, he nominates himself for undercover work (and is obviously given the option of narcotics by his boss Chief Bridges – Robert John Burke – in another act of racial profiling), but instead he has to attend a talk organized by the black student union. They’ve invited Kwame Ture to talk,
Series lead Stephen Amell teased via Twitter that Colin Donnell is back on set at the CW superhero drama, though one can only speculate how the late Tommy Merlyn will “return” this time. (Amell’s tweet ruled out the notion of a flashback.) The news comes on the heels of reports that Caity Lotz will bring Sara Lance back to Arrow for its season finale.
Earlier this season, Donnell appeared in the “Crisis on Earth-x” crossover event, as that alternate world’s Nazi version of Tommy. The actor can
Created by Jason Mosberg, $1 is set in a small Rust Belt town in post-recession America, where a one-dollar bill changing hands connects a group of characters involved in a shocking multiple murder. The path of the dollar bill, and point of view in each episode, paints a picture of a modern American town with deep class and cultural divides

“They never understood what the show was about,” Corden said of the U.S. networks. “They would buy the show and immediately change it.” Corden spoke Sunday to an audience of “The Late Late Show” fans at EW’s PopFest in Downtown Los Angeles.
“Gavin & Stacey” followed the budding relationship between Gavin (Mathew Horne) from Essex and Stacey (Joanna Page) from Wales, and how their families are brought together. Corden played Gavin’s best friend, Smithy, while Jones was Stacey’s pal Nessa. The show launched in 2007 on digital channel BBC Three, but was so popular
In an effort to address the lack of horror films directed by women, female Director/Writer Stewart Thorndike is in the process of making three female-centric horror movies. Lyle is the first of the three, and Putney, currently raising funds via a Kickstarter campaign, is the planned second entry. There are 44 days left of the Putney Kickstarter campaign, and Stewart recently announced that fans can watch Lyle for free on the movie’s website for the rest of the Putney Kickstarter campaign.
