Netflix defends Insatiable as petition calling for its cancelation surpasses 200,000 signatures
Netflix vice president of original series Cindy Holland was asked about the petition to cancel the Debby Ryan series, which has been accused of fat-shaming. “The creator (Lauren Gussis) felt very strongly about exploring these issues based on her own experiences, but satirically, in a very over the top way,” Holland said at the TV press tour. “Ultimately, the message of the show is that what is most important is you feel most comfortable."

Today fails to ask Robin Wright about "toxic" Kevin Spacey allegations on House of Cards set
Source: The Baltimore Sun
In her first interview promoting the final season of House of Cards, Wright told Savannah Guthrie that the cast and crew were “all surprised, of course, and ultimately saddened” by the sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey. “Kevin and I knew each other between action and cut, and in between setups where we would giggle,” Wright said. “I didn’t really — I didn’t know the man. I knew the incredible craftsman that he is.” But as David Zurawik points out, Guthrie failed to ask Wright about a CNN report, sourced to eight current and former House or Cards staffers, that the set of the Netflix drama was "toxic" with Spacey’s abusive and predatory sexual behavior. "One of journalism’s primary jobs is providing clarity by trying to resolve such contradictions — not serve up the kind of questions that allow someone who was in a position of authority and responsibility on that set to avoid taking the contradiction on," says Zurawik. "Wright was a director, executive producer and co-star. She was not as powerful as Spacey, but she had enough power to say something if any part of what CNN alleged about that set was true." ALSO: The interview exposed several absurdities about the show’s decision to keep going.

Michael Kelly says the post-Kevin Spacey House of Cards "all worked out, and Robin is so frigging talented"
Kelly says he's learned a great deal working closely with Robin Wright in the final season. To have all those years to have learned from Kevin, and now all this time to learn from Robin, it’s just like as an actor, you can’t ask for anything more than that, to learn under those two people. (It’s been) the greatest acting classes for the last six years," he says. As for Spacey, whom he hasn't spoken to since his ouster from the Netflix series, Kelly says: "There’s obviously a million emotions that I went through, that I processed during this whole thing. I don’t want to talk too much about it because it was heartbreaking in so many ways." He adds that he's "still processing" what happened. "You go from talking to someone often to not at all, and in any profession, in anything, circumstances removed, what happened removed, it’s strange … and I’m still processing," he says. "I haven’t formulated any opinion, and I haven’t talked publicly about it. This is the first thing I’ve ever said. I think I’m still going through a lot, processing the whole thing. It’s tough."

Netflix is No. 1 in showing TV characters smoking, led by Stranger Things
Season 1 of Stranger Things featured 182 incidents of tobacco use, while The Walking Dead came in at No. 2 with 94 scenes of characters using tobacco, according to a study from the antismoking group Truth Initiative. In total, Netflix had 319 "tobacco incidents," more than any cable or broadcast network. Netflix ranked third through sixth, with Orange Is the New Black, House of Cards, Fuller House and Making a Murderer each showing numerous scenes of tobacco use. The Truth Initiative also found 20 instances of tobacco use on Modern Family. Fuller House was the only show on the list that's rated TV-Y7, for kids as young as age 7.

Jon Favreau is the creative equivalent of vanilla ice cream, which makes him perfect for the live-action Star Wars TV series

Favreau is the perfect choice because he has a history of making stylistic, broadly appealing hits. "Lucasfilm doesn’t want to take anything close to a risk with its first live-action TV series," says Miles Surrey. "This will be the preeminent product of Disney’s new streaming service, an incentive for people who might not want to fork over another monthly fee if they’re not getting any worthwhile content. Think of Favreau’s new series like the way Netflix approached House of Cards: The company got a famous, recognizable director (David Fincher) and two bankable movie stars (Robin Wright and a pre-scandal Kevin Spacey) for its first big stab at original programming. Now that five years have passed and Netflix has the budget to produce 700 pieces of original content in 2018 alone, the company can afford to get a little strange through sheer volume. Dark never could have been one of Netflix’s first shows, but now, why not?"
