JERRY SEINFELD SAID IT WOULD NEVER HAPPEN

Jerry Seinfeld’s 2020 Netflix comedy special was one of the streamer’s highest rated programs, and now Jerry might TOP those numbers with what they all said would never happen- a Seinfeld reunion! My source told me that Jerry and his former costars -including Julia Louis Dreyfus- are in top secret talks to revisit their popular sitcom, 25 years after its series finale. The details are far from worked out, but Jerry and his gang could each pocket millions, depending on the format. Netflix is HOPING for a 10 episode revival, but it could easily wind up being a two hour reunion movie. The source says it all comes down to money, but a deal is certainly looking more and more like a strong possibility.

CHRIS ROCK’S HUMOR WILL NOT BE CENSORED

That was fast! No sooner did Chris Rock’s live Netflix special air than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reached out to the powers that be at the streaming giant to voice their displeasure. In one bit, Chris poked fun at Meghan’s claim of racism in the Royal family, which obviously didn’t sit well with the couple. Harry and Meghan DO have a lucrative Netflix deal which has already earned them millions, but despite that, they were politely told that the network does NOT believe in censorship. Chris’ jokes were funny and they were HIS – not the network’s. It’s unlikely that Harry and Meg will walk away from their deal over this, but to say they’re upset would be an understatement…

PRINCE HARRY IS THE LUCKY ONE

Meghan Markle has given Prince Harry the best of both worlds. They are in New York to take part in the Global Citizen Live 24 hour worldwide event in Central Park promoting equal access to covid vaccine. Besides continuing their charity work, the couple has a highly profitable deal with Netflix to create content and Meghan is working on an animated feature about a 12 year old girl who becomes inspired by successful women in history. Of course they are meeting and working with the most prominent people in New York and Hollywood. Besides their flourishing business lives, they are living a dreamy life near the beach in idyllic Santa Barbara with their young son and daughter born in June. Isn’t that better than being stifled in the palace and told what to do every day? Meghan has given Harry a wonderful and enviable life…

TIGER KING GROUP PREPPING SPECIAL ABOUT ROY HORN’S GRISLY TIGER ATTACK

Figures. Only a day after the death of Siegfried & Roy star Roy Horn, members of the Tiger King production team are scrambling to put together a special about Roy’s 2003 tiger attack. Since Tiger King was Netflix’s Most Watched Series, the special is likely a go. Of course it will feature the beautiful cats, but remember, Siegfried and Roy are – to put it mildly- fascinating characters themselves, and definitely competition for Joe Exotic

DON’T BE TURNED OFF BY THIS PHOTO – “ROMA” IS BRILLIANT

Netflix is going to take home the Oscar for Best Foreign Film this year – Alfonso Cuaron’s Roma is an unexpected MASTERPIECE! We can’t say enough good things about it. This is the story of the director’s memories of his childhood in the early 70’s in Mexico City. His upper middle class family has beloved servants and these young women are considered to be part of the family. It is their story we are drawn into. And “drawn into“ is no exaggeration – almost from the first scene we feel as if we are part of the family living this story. It’s a rare and wonderful connection, perhaps partly due to the fact that most of the cast are non-actors working without a script. An astonishing achievement.
