Tons of things are happening in Hollywood this week, so let’s dive right in!
There’s a Britney Spears musical headed to Broadway next spring, and I bet it’s not what you’re thinking.
It’s a musical that features Britney Spears’ greatest hits while telling a revisionist fairytale. The show is set to begin previews in May and will have its opening night on June 23rd.
The story will follow Cinderella, Snow White, Little Mermaid, and other classic storybook characters as they have a book club meeting and receive the book The Feminine Mystique, which opens their eyes to the fact that there’s more to life than just their clothing and a true love’s kiss.
Amazon is also beginning to heavily promote its new series Daisy Jones and the Six, based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s novel of the same name.
The miniseries will follow a band who goes from obscurity to fame, then, after a sold-out show, they call it quits. Years later, they’ve decided to come together and tell the story of what really happened.
The band featured in the series, though fictional, is inspired by Fleetwood Mac who let the drama behind the scenes drive the product that their fans saw and loved.
The miniseries is set to premiere on Amazon on March 3rd and will feature well known names like Sam Claflin, Suki Waterhouse, Riley Keough, and more.
Here’s your first look at the series.
Netflix also has an exciting series set to drop on January 1st that’s unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.
The series, called Kaleidoscope, is a series that has been created so you can watch the episodes in any order you choose.
Each episode has so many connections to the other episodes that you can build a connection and meaning in the series despite the order in which you watch the episodes.
The creators say it’s going to be something you’ll just want to watch over and over again because everyone is going to be watching a different series.
The creators have been a bit tight-lipped on what the series is actually about, but what we do know so far is that it’s about a bank heist. Watch the teaser below to get your first look at the series and to see what the cast and creatives are saying so far about the series.
Lastly, Sundance Film Festival, which will take place from January 19th – January 29th, has announced its lineup and there are some super great movies coming to the big screen, one of which I think you listeners will really like – a documentary about Michael J. Fox called Still: A Michael J. Fox Movie.
