Van Jones hopes his new CNN show will be a place where both average and above-average Joes feel at home talking about what’s going on in America.

“This is an opportunity to really reflect on where we are and where we are going,” he says of “The Van Jones Show,” which will debut Saturday, January 27, at 7 p.m. on CNN, taped before a live audience. “We will have cultural icons and political leaders on the one hand, but we will also be going out into the country, talking to ordinary people.” Jones intends to use social media, live-crowd interaction and taped segments of visits with people across America to analyze the trends shaping the 2018 and 2020 elections.

Frank Darabont Sues AMC Over ‘Walking Dead’ Again
Former “The Walking Dead” showrunner Frank Darabont has filed another lawsuit against AMC, claiming that an audit has uncovered more money that is owed to him from the hit zombie drama. The new suit, which also lists Creative Artists Agency and Dark Woods Productions as plaintiffs, seeks damages “in an amount to be determined at trial, but in no event less than $10 million.” “Having recently completed an audit of AMC’s accounting records, it is now clear that AMC’s wrongful conduct extends well beyond artificially deflated license fees,” the suit, filed Thursday in New York Supreme Court, reads. “AMC has used...

Karate Kid Based Youtube Series “Cobra Kai” To Be Faithful to the Movie

Karate Kid Based Youtube Series “Cobra Kai” To Be Faithful to the Movie
The fact that the Karate Kid YouTube series, Cobra-Kai, is going to be faithful to the original is pretty cool. So far I’ve been on the fence about whether or not this series will really be something worth watching. One would almost think that Johnny might have gone on his merry way and done something greater with his life than the Cobra Kai could offer, but apparently that’s not the direction the writers wanted to use. You might have gotten the idea that being choked nearly to death by his sensei would show him that this wasn’t the best course

Movies That Our Future Children Should Watch

If a person would ask you what your favorite childhood movie is, you will most likely respond with a Disney movie title.

Grammy Awards Producer Ken Ehrlich on the Show’s Big (and Expensive) Return to New York, and This Year’s ‘Woke’ Factor
