The hacking group that goes by the name The Dark Overlord doubled down on its piracy of the new season of Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black” by claiming to have absconded with content from four other networks as well.
ABC, Fox, National Geographic and IFC were specifically cited in a tweet issued late Friday from the Twitter account of the hacker, with a chilling warning: “Who is next on the list? Fox, IFC, Nat Geo, and ABC. Oh, what fun we’re all going to have. We’re not playing any games anymore.”

Hacker Threatens to Release New Season of ‘Orange Is the New Black’
A hacker who claims to have stolen the new season of “Orange is the New Black” is threatening to release the episodes online, unless Netflix pays an undisclosed amount of money, Variety has confirmed.
“We are aware of the situation. A production vendor used by several major TV studios had its security compromised and the appropriate law enforcement authorities are involved,” Netflix said in a statement.
Using the alias The Dark Overlord, the hacker reportedly stole other TV shows in the breach, according to the AP, and may have already uploaded the first episode of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 5 to an illegal file-sharing website.
The F.B.I. is said to be investigating the matter. »

Samantha Bee Tackles Trump, CNN, in ‘Not the White House Correspondents Dinner’
Washington, D.C. – Samantha Bee was ready to make one thing clear: She appreciated journalists trying to find the truth and has little time for those trying to obscure it.
In a taped segment before the no-holds-barred comedienne launched her “Not The White House Correspondents Dinner” Saturday after at Dar Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C., an audience of about 2500 watched a sharp parody of a White House press conference – with Allison Janney, who played the press secretary C.J. Cregg on the drama “The West Wing,” reprising her role. When one reporter asked if Bee was a witch, Janney annihilated him with laser vision.
After she took the stage, Bee promised to treat reporters well. “At a later date, I will get Mexico to pay for your drinks,” she promised a crowd of reporters from organizations including the Committee to Protect Journalists, The New York Times and CNN. She praised reporters “for continuing ‘to fact check »

Strike Watch: How Hollywood Labor Strife Would Affect Your Favorite TV Shows
The WGA’s master contract with Hollywood’s major studios is set to expire at midnight on Monday. If no new agreement is in place, striking writers could be marching with picket signs the next morning — instead of writing TV shows.
A writers strike would not mean that all television would suddenly be thrust into reruns. But some effects would be immediate, and a lengthy walkout could have a huge impact across the dial.
Late-night, where writers’ rooms are open year-round, would be the first television sector affected. “The Tonight Show,” “The Late Show,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” “Conan,” and “The Daily Show” would go dark immediately — though they might not stay dark for long. David Letterman, whose Worldwide Pants production company owned “Late Show” and “Late Late Show” a decade ago — cut a separate deal with the WGA that allowed him and Craig Ferguson to return to the air during the 2007-08 strike with their writing »

Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey Discuss ‘Ellen’ Coming Out 20 Years Later
“I’m Ellen and I’m gay.”
In 2017, with “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” consistently ranking among the highest-rated syndicated TV shows and the film and television industry at large consistently working toward increased visibility of Lgbtq characters, a declaration of that sort doesn’t feel quite so jarring. But two decades ago, when Ellen Morgan — the quirky, sweater-vest-clad title character of DeGeneres’ then-sitcom, “Ellen” — spoke those words on network television, the confession was revolutionary.
To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the iconic five-word phrase that nearly destroyed — and later launched — her career, Degeneres sat down with Oprah Winfrey and Laura Dern (both of whom played integral characters to Ellen’s coming out story line) on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” Friday to discuss the repercussions of “The Puppy Episode.” »

‘13 Reasons Why’: Canadian Schools Ban All Talk, Issue Warnings About Netflix Series
“13 Reasons Why” is causing controversy in Canada after some schools have started warning parents about the graphic nature of the young adult adaptation, despite the show’s positive messages regarding bullying and suicide prevention.
After debuting on the streaming service on March 31, executive producer Selena Gomez’s hit series has become the subject of dispute at multiple Canadian school systems in less than a month. According to the CBC, St. Vincent Elementary School in Edmonton, Alberta, sent an email to the parents of sixth graders letting them know their students were prohibited from even mentioning the show on school grounds.
“The discussion that is unfolding at school is troubling. This series is rated Mature and the theme is the suicide of a high school student. This show includes graphic violence (rape) and gore, profanity, alcohol/drugs/smoking, and frightening/intense scenes,” read the letter. “The purpose of this email is to provide you with this information.

Gordon Ramsay to Open ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ Restaurant in Las Vegas
Gordon Ramsay is set to open a “Hell’s Kitchen” restaurant in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace, Ramsay announced Friday.
He unveiled the plans for the restaurant live to his fans on Facebook, with the new eatery expected to open this winter. To commemorate the announcement, Ramsay ignited his series’ 17-foot signature pitchfork, transported straight from the set of the Fox show, in the center of Caesars’ fountains. This marks Ramsay’s fifth Las Vegas restaurant and extends his partnership with Caesars Entertainment.
“Fans of the show have been asking us to bring a ‘Hell’s Kitchen’ restaurant to life since day one, so I’m thrilled to finally be doing it here at Caesars Palace,” Ramsay said. “A key element of the show’s success has always been the diners’ experience, so we are excited for guests in Las Vegas to feel like they too are part of the show – flames and all.”

‘Sweet/Vicious’ Canceled By MTV After One Season
MTV finally has made a decision on its well received dark comedy Sweet/Vicious, opting not to renew the freshman series for a second season. The decision comes three months after MTV canceled the other two comedy series that debuted in 2016, Loosely Exactly Nicole and Mary + Jane, as the network is putting a stronger emphasis on unscripted and live programming. All three shows had been developed and picked up before Chris McCarthy took over the network in late October as… »
Hacker Threatens Release of ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 5
When you think of hackers and their criminal activity you associate them with taking down websites and threatening individuals whose private accounts they’ve hacked into. You don’t normally think of these guys holding a TV network hostage. This is definitely a new one when it comes to hackers and their ransom demands. According to Variety A hacker who claims to have stolen the new season of “Orange is the New Black” is threatening to release the episodes online, unless Netflix pays an undisclosed amount of money, Variety has confirmed. “We are aware of the situation.

How to Stream the White House Correspondents’ Dinner Online
The annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner has long established itself as a cornerstone (albeit an increasingly glamorized one) of Washington’s commitment to upholding the tenets of the First Amendment and preserving the freedom of the press. The event, though initially devised as a means of honoring journalists from around the country, has grown to adopt the glitzy facets of a pretty standard high-profile award show — complete with droves of Hollywood celebrities, politicians, media outlets, and a highly-anticipated stand-up monologue.
And, for the first time in 36 years, the President will not be in attendance. President Trump and his entire White House staff announced that they’re going to pass up this year’s dinner, but made no mention as to why (although, considering the Trump admin’s pretty forthright crusade against the liberties of the nation’s media, perhaps they felt there was no need).

Fine, I’ll Talk About How I Don’t Want a Roseanne Revival
When you consider how successful the show Roseanne was and the amount of TV revivals going on right now it’s not hard to understand why it’s being brought back to television. From a financial perspective it makes perfect sense. From Roseanne Barr, John Goodman, Sarah Gilbert, Laurie Metcalfe and everyone else it makes sense too. They’ll have solid work again, be in the spotlight again and have a chance to better their careers. John Goodman Goodman and Sarah Gilbert also recently staged a mini-Roseanne revival in a video filmed during Goodman’s visit to CBS’ The Talk, which Gilbert created, co-hosts and

Wonder Woman Finally Has a New Trailer: It’s About Time
Either the studio executives are avid readers of the internet or this is just an incredible coincidence but Wonder Woman finally came out with a new trailer and perhaps this is a sign the film is going to pick up its marketing before it’s June 2nd release. Literally yesterday I wrote an article about how absent Wonder Woman’s been from the public eye and how other movies have been and are being marketed considerably more. Perhaps yesterday’s release of a new trailer is a sign of more things to come? The new trailer, called “Goddess” hit at some point during

Incredible Fan Made Trailer for “Back to the Future 4”
I think we can all safely agree that the Back to the Future trilogy will always be regarded as a fantastic film franchise. While the 3rd installment didn’t nearly match up to the first and second movies it’s tough to argue with the success of these films. But have we ever considered that a fourth film could make complete sense? While I think we realistically know this isn’t possible, it hasn’t stopped some fans with incredible imaginations from conjuring up images of what a Back to the Future 4 would look like. One talented fan put together this spectacular trailer

That Time Danny Glover Had A Cameo in Maverick which is a Hilarious Nod to Lethal Weapon
If you haven’t seen the movie Maverick then I highly recommend that you do. It’s a very underrated comedy starring Mel Gibson, James Garner, and Jodie Foster loosely based on a TV show that Garner starred in of the same name. Looking back on the film there are a ton of hilarious lines as well as actors with parts in the film that were memorable. James Coburn was awesome in this film, as was Alfred Molina and Graham Greene. But perhaps the best appearance in the film was a short cameo by none other than Danny Glover. Moviephone best described
