Hollywood Basic Crafts Unions Announce Tentative Agreement

Hollywood Basic Crafts Unions Announce Tentative Agreement
A coalition of Hollywood crafts unions announced on Friday evening that they have reached a tentative agreement on a new three-year contract.

The coalition of five bargaining groups represents about 7,500 electricians, drivers, plumbers, laborers, animal trainers and others. The three-year agreement must still be approved by a vote of the membership.

No details of the contract were released. The unions are expected to reveal the terms of the contract to members ahead of the vote.

The negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers began in December, shortly after the 60,000 members of International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees narrowly ratified their new contract.

‘Nancy Drew’ Bosses on That Finale Heartbreak and What Might Come Next
[Warning: The following contains Major spoilers for the Season 3 finale of Nancy Drew, “The Ransom of the Forsaken Soul.” So unless you are caught up, go hide behind the veil that protects Horseshoe Bay from Temperance’s evil plan.] The end of the world as Nancy (Kennedy McMann) knows it was averted, thanks to some crafty Scooby-squad assistance. But just because our gumshoe was able to vanquish soul-stealing witchypoo Temperance Hudson (Olivia Taylor-Dudley), that doesn’t mean her world wasn’t completely upended in the process. The Copperhead may have been stealing hearts all season, but this finale twist ripped ours right out of our chests. Reeling from the fatal showdown—which wound up killing Ryan (Riley Smith) as well as Temperance, thanks to a shard of the cursed hatchet used to kill her—a morose Nancy re-emerged a month later to see her friends again and admitted to Ace (Alex Saxon) that she was guilt-ridden over taking Temperance’s ...

It seems like just yesterday that Kenan‘s second season began (it was January 3), but the final two episodes are already here. And in the January 31 finale, everyone’s going to Miami! TV Insider has an exclusive sneak peek at their arrival at the hotel. As Mika (Kimrie Lewis) leaves the others, Kenan (Kenan Thompson) can’t help but ask, “Did you all notice she was half-naked up underneath that cover-up?” But as Tami (Taylor Louderman) sees it, “Good for her. A woman that knows what she wants.” To that, Gary (Chris Redd) scoffs, “Unlike you,” before explaining, “David’s only crime was loving you too damn much.” Tami disagrees. “No, his only crime was crying every time we had sex,” she says. “It’s called a tear-gasm, and it represents strength in some countries,” he tells her.

The co-hosts of the Today show’s third hour are pumped about their recent shoutout on Family Guy — even if it wasn’t exactly a compliment.

The reference, which was brought to the attention of co-host Dylan Dreyer by her husband, was from Family Guy‘s Jan. 9 episode, during which Peter gifts Lois a Peleton-esque exercise bike for Valentine’s Day. “I thought you’d like it,” Peter says. “I saw it on the Today show.” Lois replies, “Second hour with Hoda and Savannah, or third hour with the nonsense people?” When Peter confirms it was the second hour, Lois is immediately sold.

‘The Righteous Gemstones’: Tim Baltz Breaks Down Bj’s Outrageous Baptism and What’s Next
[Warning: The below contains Major spoilers for Season 2, Episode 4 of The Righteous Gemstones, “As To How They Might Destroy Him.”] The Righteous Gemstones is a show that’s not shy about going big, but the latest episode took the holy comedy to new heights with the adult baptism of Judy Gemstone’s (Edi Patterson) usually timid husband Bj (Tim Baltz). The occasion saw tensions flare as Bj contended with the judgment of his non-secular family and the pressures of living up to the evangelical in-laws he so desperately wants to be accepted by. The garish celebration, covered in shades of unforgettable pink which extended to Bj and Judy’s bright wardrobe, made way for plenty of laughs based solely on appearances. When Bj transforms into a bridezilla-like partygoer though, all hell breaks loose. Below, Baltz opens up about the big episode for his character Bj, teases whether amends will be made between him and patriarch Eli (John Goodman) after accidentally

Gayle King Signs New Deal to Stay With CBS News
Gayle King, who over ten years at CBS News has become one of that ViacomCBS division’s most recognizable personnel, has signed a deal to stay for another contract cycle.

“I still feel that in many ways I’m just getting started,” King told listeners of her SiriusXM radio program on Friday.

‘The Afterparty’ Review: Christopher Miller’s Apple TV+ Whodunit Is a Slick Showcase of Sweeping Talent

‘The Afterparty’ Review: Christopher Miller’s Apple TV+ Whodunit Is a Slick Showcase of Sweeping Talent
There’s ambition for ambition’s sake and then there’s ambition by design. “The Afterparty” — an eight-episode comedic murder-mystery where each episode is not only told from a different character’s perspective, but in a distinct genre befitting each person’s particular story — is 100 percent the latter. Created by Chris Miller (who also directs every episode) and written by Miller, his long-time creative partner Phil Lord, and a talented staff, the Apple TV+ limited series puts its creative team to great use, building out an engaging, ongoing whodunit with striking individual pieces, including rom-com, musical, and animated episodes. But rather than limit their eclectic talent exhibition to what the production staff can do behind the camera, Miller & Co. enlist an enviable cast of comedians to flex more than just their chuckle muscles onscreen.

While a little lengthy in parts and with a central puzzle that will entice devout sleuths more than casual fans,
