I’m a HUGE TV Fan so I always look forward to the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview. Over the years it’s given me a chance to ‘meet’ TV shows that I hadn’t planned to watch but after seeing the first first episode and hearing the cast/creators talk I am willing to give them a ‘test watch’ or sometimes an unexpected fan (I’m looking at YOU the CW Dynasty!). This year they have Netflix’s Bojack a animated series that is really good and has characters that I see reflected in myself despite not being a talking horse, dog or cat! As far as the new shows I’m curious about the Charmed (the CW) reboot with Latina flavor and the Rookie (ABC) since I have a weakness for police dramadies but am willing to give all the shows the networks selected to highlight a chance but not Last Man Standing (Fox) didn’t like it on ABC so am sure I won’t like the continuation with move to the new network.
“Every September television fans know PaleyFest Fall TV Previews is the place to be for a first look at the most buzz-worthy new shows of the fall TV season, and engaging conversation and insight from the cast and creative teams behind them,”said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “We’re honored to present this stellar lineup of new shows as well as several Emmy-nominated returning fan favorites.”

I spoke with the producers and stars of Freeform’s drama Siren .

The second season of the Netflix series ‘Dear White People‘ has dug even deeper into race, sexual norms, classism, ‘good negro’ and homosexuality AND detoured into white nationalism with a season finale that had me SHOOK!

The Expanse is a series that takes place in the future where mankind has conquered our solar system and spread but we learn we aren’t the only intelligent lifeforms after discovering the protomolocule.

SYFY channel did not renew the series but passionate fans have launched a renew The Expanse campaign and have appealed to Amazon Video, Netflix, Hulu, and the Networks.
This year Jeff Bezos will be accepting the Gerard K. O’Neill Memorial Award for Space Settlement Advocacy at the 2018 ISDC hopefully they will cross paths and Mr. Bezos will choose to add The Expanse to the Amazon Prime lineup. The Expanse fandom is looking at numerous streaming platforms to renew the science fiction series with a 100% approval on Rotten Tomatoes the SyFy #1 series is still seeking a new home in our galaxy!

Cas Anvar, who plays starship pilot Alex Kamal, will join fellow cast members to discuss the science of the show.
I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the Bob’s Burger table read of “Long Time Listener, First Time Bob” at the North Hollywood Studio on Friday, May 11th. It was my first table read, so I was very excited and it was also my first time at Bob’s Burgers studio office! After the entertaining reading with H. Jon Benjamin (Bob Belcher), Kristen Schaal (Louise Belcher), Dan Mintz (Tina Belcher), John Roberts (Linda Belcher), Loren Bouchard (creator), and guest stars Ron Fuches (Patrick), Nick Offerman (Clem) and Rob Huebel (Vance). I was able to have a one-on-one conversation with Jim Dauterive, writer and developer of Bob’s Burgers. During the interview, we discussed the process of creating an animated show for Fox.
Originally, when Jim came to Hollywood, he had no ambitions of becoming a writer for animation. He wanted to write for films, but the opportunity to presented itself when he wrote some spec scripts for a few television shows. By 1996, he was hired for King of the Hill to bring a more realistic portrayal of Texans in the series. Jim treated writing King of the Hill as writing for a live action scripted series, which wasn’t hard for him to do since it’s such a naturalistic setting. In that way Bob’s Burgers is similar to King of the Hill. Both shows are pretty realistic, discounting the occasional fantasy scenes. The Bob’s Burgers character work in a restaurant and they have natural, organic dialogue. Jim even jokes that Texans call King of the Hill a documentary. Fox has used The Simpsons as the seed to grow the animated series with teaming up experienced staff with new creative talent. Simpsons as an established series is a template for their other animated series. They take an established Fox series showrunner and pair with a new talented creator to establish a winning team who can navigate the business of TV while allowing them free reign to make a unique show that fits the lineup. That’s how Jim and Lorne teamed up after Fox ordered Bob’s Burger. For Family Guy, David Zuckerman of King of the Hill was paired with Seth Macfarlane. Even before the start of Fox animations, The Simpsons showrunner Matt Groening was paired with James Brooks and Sam Simon.
It takes about nine months after the table read for the animators to finish an episode and have it ready to be viewed on air. Sometimes they will save five or six episodes that will air the next season. Jim said there is no linear schedule they follow, but they do make holiday episodes like the Halloween episode “The Wolf of Wharf Street” follow a schedule. The most recent Bob’s Burgers episode, “Boywatch”, was written a year and a half ago, but Jim wanted to wait until it was summertime-ish to air it. There is truly no strict order they follow when it comes to releasing episodes.
For “Long Time Listener, First Time Bob”, Scott Jacobson pitched the idea, and Loren approved it. The episode idea then goes through the writers who will help Scott structure the story. Scott will make an outline that must be approved, and once it was approved he wrote the script. Then following Loren’s notes, the writers will edit the script. The final script rewrites always occur the night before the table read. According to Jim, the voice actors will be recorded Wednesday, and the animators will listen in to see how the animations will work in the episode. This process is obviously long and very collaborative, so episodes are not finished until they are about to be aired.
Jim describes the show as a family environment, where for the most part the staff have been together since the beginning. The writers are always in a great mood, and their work environment is very conducive to doing a great show. It shows in the quality and tone of the show. The lightheartedness and positivity in each episode is a also a reflection of the work room. I believe that has contributed to the longevity of this show, and I’m excited to see what they plan to do next season.

The season 3 premier picked up where we left off at S2 with our intrepid heroes being in a whole lot of trouble! The Expanse has amped up the problems with betrayals, love & friendship lost, lack of trust and changing alliances. The enemy of my enemy is my ‘friend’ or something like that in space!
In the 23rd century nobody can hear you scream when tossed out of an airlock or blown up in the icy darkness of space. The lack of humanity in the hardscrabble future where children can be experimented and secret test subjects for nefarious purpose (isn’t kidnapping illegal) is a reminder that human life doesn’t hold much value especially for the poor and powerless belters.
This season is still going to be all about everyone trying to live by a moral core that’s pretty shaky especially on the Rocinante with a crew who’s been betrayed. James Holden (Steven Strait) has lost his jiminey cricket whispering ‘do the right thing’ after Naomi Nagata (Dominique Tipper) decided to ignore the crew vote and give a sample of the protomolecule to Fred Johnson (Chad Coleman) so that everyone is ‘equal’ (Earth, Mars, the Belt). The repercussions has left Naomi on the outs not just from her lover but her BFF Amos Burton (Wes Chatham) who has relied on her for direction as well. It looks as if both men will have to rely on themselves and grow but right now they are both hurt and not handling it very well. Alex Kamal (Cas Anvar) is the one trying to navigate his ship ‘family’ while dealing with the emotional fallout of juggling being a husband, father and a martian while failing at all three realizing what he really wants. As well as MAJOR Queen Bee moves with Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) reminding everyone who’s boss (but that she should NEVER fire a gun again) and Roberta Draper (Frankie Adams) being the Marine I’d always o my six. Between the two of them getting in formation I think that Sadavir Errinwright (Shawn Doyle) better HOPE the truth doesn’t come out since neither of them are the ‘turn the other cheek’ type of women.
This was a solid premier episode that drops some major bombshells of how shifting alliances and thirst for power at all costs could lead to the death of humanity as well as who’s really a hero. As well as what we’ll chat about tonight about
Watching the last few moments of E2 looks like we have new shipmates, will they pick up the escape capsule and WHERE is the data with Sadavir Errinwright (Shawn Doyle) betrayal of Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo)?
Leave a comment below and don’t forget to watch myself, Rick Hong and Kari Lane at 6PM on Afterbuzztv talk about The Expanse
