GOSSIP - Keke Palmer una di noi: "più che al liceo, ho imparato tutto dalle serie tv"!
Keke Palmer looks gorgeous as she flashes a smile on the cover of Galore‘s latest issues, on stands now. Here’s what the 23-year-old Scream Queens actress had to share with the mag:
On what advice she’d give younger girls: “I just feel like it’s so much easier to allow life to change you instead of you trying to fit yourself into your ideas of life. Life is a surprising thing to experience and it’s beautiful because it’s filled with mystery and magic…real magic that I’ve seen with my own eyes! I guess my biggest tip would be not to label yourself. When you label yourself unconsciously, because that’s what society does, you don’t realize how much you’re limiting yourself.”
On what she missed because she grew up in the entertainment industry: “I never had a real high school experience. My only idea of it is from watching TV shows, but I think I would’ve liked to have experienced that. I still had those types of dynamics, but maybe I wasn’t in the backdrop of a school, I was in the backdrop of a set.”
On whether she feels the responsibility to speak out on important issues: “I don’t feel pressure to speak up on issues of my culture but I do hate the emphasis my generation (me included) puts on social media in terms of creating changes within our world. To me, the importance has got to start being less about how many posts we’ve put up on the issues and more about what we are doing in the REAL world to create future change.”
On how she feels about Miley Cyrus twerking: “Miley Cyrus has always been that, I’ve known her since she was a kid. That’s always what she’s been into. If she loves hip hop music and she loves hip hop culture, that’s what she loves. My sister is a black girl and she loves alternative music and people think she’s weird [laughing].”

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! Il personaggio di Lady Gaga in "American Horror Story: Roanoke" è ispirato ai Druidi
News tratta da
On Wednesday's episode of American Horror Story: Roanoke, we finally got a deeper look at Lady Gaga's mysterious character. At first glance, it would appear that she is just a creepy seductress and husband stealer, but her backstory reveals more nuance and her ties to the ancient Druids, members of an Celtic religion dating back centuries.
In previous episodes, Gaga's 'The Witch of the Woods' persona has been less than prominent, only appearing periodically in the background. Last night, however, we learned through Cricket that she is in fact "the bitch with the real power." 
You see, Lady Gaga's Witch was a real OG sorceress, way before any of the Salem stuff happened.
Born in England, she was a descendant of the Druids. They existed in ancient Britain and France as priests and priestesses who communicated ancient wisdoms about the natural world from the Gods to the humans, according to Live Science. They also believed that the human soul was immortal and would be reincarnated in new forms over time. 
In American Horror Story: Roanoke, Gaga's character was inhabiting a boat on its way to the New World, but it wasn't exactly a luxury cruise-line experience. The voyage was plagued with misfortunes as countless men on board inexplicably died. 
Upon arriving to America, the crew accused Gaga of witchcraft because she was the only woman on board (sexism sucked pretty badly then, too). She became the suspect of a brutal witch hunt and was sentenced to being burned alive. But after ferociously slaughtering her captors, the Witch liberated herself and became one with the forest.
According to the beloved Cricket (may he rest in peace), "the old magic and the New World created something new, something original." All of this meaning that through the carnage and violence, Gaga's character became even more powerful and omnipotent. Being an immortal forest goddess has its downsides, though. Apparently, The Witch is now lonely and is craving some male attention. She has her sights set on Shelby's husband, Matt, and it doesn't seem like she's gonna give him up without a fight. 
Viewers will have to see how this twisted mé·nage à trois pans out during the next episode, airing Thursday at 10 p.m. Eastern on FX.
E intanto, un "milione di ragioni" per seguire Lady Gaga...

NEWS - Benvenuti a Disneyland! Al via progetto di una serie tv sulla nascita del parco divertimenti di Topolino&Co.

News tratta da
Agent Carter Showrunners Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters have sold an hour-long dramatic television series pitch to Disney-owned network ABC, that is “based on the Disney theme park mythology”. As a Disneyland fanatic, this excites me, even though I can’t quite comprehend what this even means.

So what do we know about this tv series pitch? Not much. Deadline (via) has reported that the television project is “based on the Disney theme park mythology.” We know that the show project is untitled, although it is going under the code name “Hyperion.” The duo is executive producing with former Disney executive-turned-producer Jason Reed (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles). Other than that, details are being kept tightly under wraps for now.
My first thought is this dramatic series could be about the creation of Disneyland, following the struggle of Walt Disney and the early Imagineers. I’m not sure Dinsey would want to put their legendary founder as a character in a tv series, although they did have Tom Hanks play Disney in Saving Mr. Banks and Walt was originally a much larger part of Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland.
My second thought is that maybe it’s somehow like the Magic Kingdom film project that Jon Favreau spent years trying to make, set inside the theme park where the lands and characters come to life after the park gates are closed. Favreau was hoping to get back to the Magic Kingdom after Jungle Book, but he instead, for whatever reason, decided to do a “live-action” remake of The Lion king instead.
Disney has a series of children’s books called The Kingdom Keepers, which follows the adventures of five teens who, by day, are holographic hosts in the Disney Theme Parks and by night, battle Disney Villains to keep them from taking control of the parks, the Disney entertainment empire, and the world. Fans have wanted a movie adaptation for some time, but author Ridley Pearson has said that “Disney currently has no plans to make any Kingdom Keepers movies,” that he “would love to have the Kingdom Keepers become a movie” but “unfortunately it is not up to me.” It’s possible this could be an adaptation of this successful book franchise.
It’s possible it could be an anthology series of some kind, but it doesn’t appear as if the project is based on a ride or attraction, but the mythology of the park itself.
During the Hyperion Studios short 14 years, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Snow White, Pinocchio and many more beloved characters were given life. In many ways, the Hyperion Studios represents “the golden age” of Walt Disney’s imagination.
But by 1939 there was no more room to grow on the Hyperion Studio lot and the company was forced to move to Burbank. Of course, the Hyperion days were well before Walt Disney started construction on Disneyland. But he did come up with the earliest ideas for the park in the 1930’s when his office was still in the Hyperion studio. However, the earliest date of Walt’s plans to build a theme park was not until 1948, so we can’t find a connection between Hyperion and Disneyland itself. I’ve often thought that a theme park would make a great setting for a television series. MTV had a show called Happyland, but it was pretty horrible even by the lowest of standards. I’m very curious to learn how the mythology of Disneyland fits into this tv pitch.
Fazekas & Butters credits include Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Reaper, Dollhouse, Hawaii Five-0, Resurrection and Agent Carter.

L'EDICOLA DI LOU - Stralci, cover e commenti sui telefilm dai media italiani e stranieri

Con "Westworld" la tecnologia si ribella all'uomo creatore
"Per onestà dichiaro che la fantascienza non è un santo del mio paradiso televisivo e cinematografico e che non ho visto Westworld (Il mondo dei robot), il film del 1972 scritto e diretto da Michael Crichton da cui è tratta la serie omonima HBO. Per questo, forse, ho faticato a entrare dentro i meccanismi narrativi del primo episodio firmato da Jonathan Nolan e prodotto da J.J. Abrams (Sky Atlantic, lunedì, 21.15). Descritta come «un'oscura odissea sull'alba della coscienza artificiale e sul futuro del peccato» (che il peccato abbia un futuro è abbastanza scontato), Westworld racconta di un parco a tema abitato da robot: in alto ci sono ricchi clienti desiderosi di giocare con il futuro (un futuro che indossa abiti del passato), in basso invece agiscono robot progettati per interpretare una parte in una sorta di film western ambientato nella Monument Valley, lo scenario ideale dei film di John Ford. L'aspetto più interessante della serie è la sua struttura circolare, dove gli eventi si ripetono cambiando ogni volta trama quasi a sottolineare la ribellione della tecnologia nei confronti dell'uomo creatore. Nelle intenzioni dei burattinai (tra cui un bravissimo Anthony Hopkins), i burattini del western (ricordiamo i due protagonisti: Evan Rachel Wood e James Marsden) sono creature sottratte al gioco dell'evoluzionismo. Solo alcuni bug impediscono loro la perfezione. II tema «filosofico» di fondo risiede proprio nel contrasto tra i gestori di questo strano parco divertimenti: da una parte, quelli che pensano solo al successo economico, a incrementare il «gioco», dall'altra quelli che sono stati presi dal desiderio folle della perfezione e sognano una nuova razza «umana» slegata dai meccanismi degli stadi evolutivi, della selezione naturale (una specie di creazionismo scientifico, di disegno intelligente). Ancora una volta, dietro un impianto razionalistico si cela un'inquietudine di natura religiosa". (Aldo Grasso, 05.10.2016)
"Westworld", il fascino del non capirci nulla
"Stanchi del GFVip? La soluzione è Westworld, la cosa più ardita in tv, la nuova serie Hbo che Sky Atlantic manda in contemporanea con gli Usa ( il lunedì sera gli episodi con sottotitoli, una settimana dopo quelli doppiati). Siamo all'incrocio tra Blade Runner, Truman Show e Jurassic Park — sono tempi di nuove serie che citano a mani basse il passato. Gruppo di autori efferati e tecnici di prim'ordine (il capo è Anthony Hopkins) allestiscono un parco a tema ambientato nel West. Ci vanno tipi molto solventi a cercare avventure: nel parco i cowboy e gli altri sono robot, continuamente riprogrammati per le esigenze. Succede di tutto, non si capisce nulla — o quasi. Ma è di fascino assurdo, con nomi come JJ Abrams e Jonathan Nolan in costruzione e, va da sé, Michael Crichton autore in origine. O è una cosa di assoluto futuro e niente sarà più come prima, oppure andrà in un altro modo, ma sarà stato eccitante lo stesso". (Antonio Dipollina, 05.10.2016)

NEWS - Clamoroso al Cibali! Netflix si dà ai reality-show (20 già in produzione)...Avvertite Clemente Russo (e il fido Bettarini)
News tratta da
Watch out, "Real Housewives," "Big Brother," and "Survivor" — Netflix is getting into the business of reality TV. "We are embarking on a lot of unscripted programming," Netflix's chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, said during a Royal Television Society event in London on Tuesday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. According to Sarandos, the streaming company has about 20 unscripted shows in production. He even named one type of reality show that the company was especially interested in. "The newest thing we're encroaching on are competition shows," Sarandos said. As an example, Sarandos pointed to Netflix's "Ultimate Beastmaster" project with Sylvester Stallone attached as an executive producer. Netflix's first competition show, "Ultimate Beastmaster" will feature 108 contestants from around the world who tackle physically tough obstacle courses until only one person is left standing.
This push into unscripted television is just part of Netflix's bid to double its number of original programs for the fifth year in a row. It now has 30 scripted originals in production along with 35 kids programs and 60 documentaries. Original productions are attractive to Netflix, The Hollywood Reporter points out, because they are watched more than licensed shows and help build Netflix's brand as a quality entertainment destination.
"This year, we had 17 different shows for 54 Emmys," Sarandos highlighted.
At least one person in entertainment doesn't see Netflix's original programming growth as a good thing. John Landgraf, the president of FX, said last month that he thought that there were too many shows on TV and that quality would suffer with increased programming.
FX has about 17 shows, and Landgraf said he may be able to keep up with 20 or 21 maximum.
"You could give me all the money in the world and I couldn’t supervise 71 shows the way I do ours," he said.
GOSSIP - Sarah Paulson: "devo tutto a Ryan Murphy"!
Sarah Paulson holds her Emmy on the cover of Variety‘s new issue.
Here’s what the American Crime Story and American Horror Story actress had to share:
On what her Emmy win means to her: “This means someone else will ask me to do something great.”
On feeling like she belongs: “As an actor, you’re always afraid that you don’t belong, especially when you keep getting let into rooms that you’re not sure you should be in, with more people that you respect and admire. You say to yourself quietly, ‘I hope they don’t realize that they let me in here and make me leave.’ Somehow, standing there with all of those people, their reaction made me think that I belonged.”
On Ryan Murphy: “He wanted [success] for me because I think he really sees me,” she says. “He knows the why of it. He knows it’s going to make me feel that I’m tethered to something in this business that we’re in. He knows that I come from a fractured home and that this is going to make me feel more linked to something in my family of choice — this community that I work in. He wanted it for me because deep down he’s one of the more vulnerable, caring, gentle people you could possibly meet.”
