Madam Secretary: Measles Risk Outbreak, Jay Fills M-Sec’s Shoes

Sickness is something that we all go through in our lives. From the chicken pox to cancer, there isn’t a disease that humankind has not encountered. In this week’s episode of Madam Secretary, Elizabeth heads to Camp David to write her presidential campaign speech, leaving Team M-Sec to hold down the fort. Jay steps in for the secretary and tries to secure an international Climate Migration agreement. One that grants asylum to the displaced citizens of nations affected by global warming. Oh, and there’s a possibility of measles making a comeback. I am seriously not liking President Andrada very much.

‘Chambers’ Photos: Uma Thurman and Tony Goldwyn in Disturbing Netflix Horror Series

Uma Thurman is the latest A-lister to join the Netflix talent pool: the Oscar nominee will attempt to heal trauma with horror in the streaming giant’s newest psychological fantasy series “Chambers.” The “Pulp Fiction” actress stars alongside Tony Goldwyn, Candian TV’s Griffin Powell-Arcand, and newcomer Sivan Alyra Rose in the ten-episode drama, set to premiere late April. The drama centers around a young heart attack sufferer (Rose) who is recovering from a much-needed heart transplant, but what comes afterward is anything but celebratory. There’s something odd about her new heart, and she’s determined to find out what caused her donor’s sudden death. The closer she comes to uncovering answers, the more she begins to lose herself and take on the more sinister characteristics of the deceased.

Netflix released an intriguing batch of first-look photos that promise plenty of fresh-faced talent, while hinting ominously at the

Walmart Might Make Its Own Game Streaming Service

Gaming has changed a lot over the course of a few decades. For instance, there was a time when a game would be sold as a complete product, which could receive one or more expansion packs provided that it proved to be popular enough. In more recent times, the Internet has enabled a partial transformation of games into services, which started up with the popularization of MMOs in the early 2000s but has since taken on a wide range of other forms that include season passes, microtransactions, and game subscription services. Now, it seems that gaming will be stepping even

Apple’s Cavalcade of Stars Sets High Expectations (Column)

Apple’s March 25 conference announcing various new services — including their upcoming passel of video content — was heavy on grandeur and light on specifics.

No Revolution: Apple’s Plans for Changing TV Remain Mysterious — Yet Predictable

When Apple revealed the name of its new streaming service, set to serve up a $2 billion lineup of original content, the seats in the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, Calif., shook from the bass. But while the presentation of “Apple TV+” — the new moniker for the collection of premium series that the tech giant will release in Fall 2019 — received much applause from the assembled crowd, it represented built-up anticipation with nowhere to go.

Monday’s Apple event covered multiple launches within the Apple ecosystem, including the subscription news service Apple News+ and new spins on Apple Pay (including a new Apple credit card). The main attraction, however, was Apple’s foray into television, which occupied half of the nearly two-hour presentation. It included a look at upcoming changes to the Apple TV app, followed by a preview of Apple’s new original series in which celebrity creators summed up what their audience already knew.

Apple Sits Out This Emmy Season, but Get Ready for a Frenzy of Contenders in 2020

Apple won’t be entering the Emmy race this year — but get ready for 2020. The tech giant’s not-so-surprise launch of its new Apple TV+ video service on Monday included a hefty roster of top producing and acting talent that will immediately make the service an awards contender when it launches in the fall.

That means Apple’s first major awards at-bats will be the Golden Globes and various guild kudos (such as the SAG and WGA awards). Those events will serve as a warm-up for Apple’s inaugural Emmy campaign season next spring.
