Shondaland Steps Into the World of Podcasting With ‘Scandal’ Star Katie Lowes

  • The Wrap
Fans may be saying goodbye to Quinn Perkins when “Scandal” wraps its final season next month, but her real-life counterpart Katie Lowes is remaining a resident of Shondaland for the foreseeable future. However, this time the Tgit actress isn’t starring in a Shonda Rhimes’ series but is hosting the production company’s first-ever podcast.

“That’s right! I get to stay in Shondaland for ‘Katie’s Crib’ which is the best!” Lowes told People Thursday. The show will be mommy-centric.

“This whole thing of motherhood is insane. It’s a rollercoaster, which I love because the Shondaland logo is a rollercoaster. That’s basically how I feel every day,” Lowes joked.

The actress and husband Adam Shapiro welcomed their first child, son Albee, in October 2017.

“Shondaland approached me about it actually,” Lowes added. “They came to me and thought, ‘I feel like you’re going through this huge thing called motherhood and there are probably a lot of people that would benefit going through this stuff with you.’ It’s been amazing.”

The weekly podcast will feature fellow celebrity moms like Kristen Bell, Casey Wilson, Jennifer Finnigan, Angelique Cabral and June Diane Raphael.

Beers and her guests will discuss cultural moments and how they’ve shaped each of their lives.

Both pods will be available on iTunes and other platforms, as well as on the Shondaland.com website. You can go ahead and subscribe to “Katie’s Crib” on iTunes now.

The final season of “Scandal” airs Thursdays at 10/9 c on ABC.

Sundance Review: ‘The Long Dumb Road’ Makes the Case for Jason Mantzoukas as a Leading Man

Welcome to the Jason Mantzoukas show. The Long Dumb Road, directed by Hannah Fidell, leans full-tilt into the anarchic charm of the long-time cult comedian to decidedly mixed results. Though it’s hard to blame the actor. Co-starring Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel), the film concerns two strangers brought together on the… road. One is Nat (Revolori), an art school-bound teen lacking in experience; the other a recently-fired, middle-aged wanderer named Richard (Mantzoukas). On the way to Los Angeles, the duo become fast friends before it all starts to get complicated. Running 90 minutes and featuring some lovely southwestern scenery (courtesy of Andrew Droz Palermo), the film moves along at a nice clip until it begins to run out of steam.

Revolori’s doing fine work here, but the bulk of the weight lies on Mantzoukas. As written by Fidell and Carson D. Mell, the script demands a lot from the actor.

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Long Dumb Road’

Sundance Film Review: ‘The Long Dumb Road’
Freshman photography student Nathan (Tony Revolori) is on a quest to find the real America. On “The Long Dumb Road” of director Hannah Fidell’s title, his trek from Texas to Los Angeles, he pulls over to shoot shuttered movie theaters and American flags drooping over drive-thrus, the kind of cynical corporate salute a kid like him considers deep. He’s too snobby to actually eat a fast-food burger, but when his purple minivan breaks down in Fort Stockton, the real America — or at least, an alcoholic mechanic (Jason Mantzoukas) drifting through it — takes the wheel of his trip, with several disastrous detours and stretches of pleasant pointlessness.

The normcore-meets-nutcase road comedy is older than Route 66, and the film’s destination could have been plotted by Google Maps, as well as the familiar screen sight of two men companionably peeing together in the wilderness. Along the way, Nathan and Richard bond and bicker while navigating, and detonating

First red band trailer for the Heathers TV series

Paramount Network has debuted the first red band trailer for the small screen reboot of the 1988 cult classic Heathers. The series stars Grace Victoria Cox, Melanie Field, Brendan Scannell, Jasmine Mathews, and James Scully, and features guest appearances from Selma Blair, Casey Wilson, and original cast member Shannen Doherty; take a look at the trailer here…

Based on the iconic cult classic film of the same name, “Heathers” is a pitch-black comedy anthology series that is set in in the present day with “good girl” Veronica Sawyer dealing with a very different but equally vicious group of ‘Heathers.’ Heather Chandler (Melanie Field) is the unconventional leader of this popular high school clique and rules Westerburg High through fear, intimidation and amazing fashion sense. Heather Duke (Brendan Scannell) is Heather C’s #1 sidekick and harnesses the Heather’s power to destroy whoever he views as a total discount hobgoblin. Heather McNamara

The most ruthless clique of same-named teens gets a sublimely vicious update for the Adderall era in the first trailer for Heathers, a new anthology series based on the beloved 1988 black comedy of the same name.
