Disney CEO Bob Iger “More Development Planned"


high fidelity

From the Star Wars perspective, "more in development for Disney+", huh? Well, with the cinematic side closing down for awhile after the ninth film, it makes sense. As for the "many more" with Marvel, this get even more interesting considering what's been going on behind the scenes.
With Kevin Feige now pretty much "Overlord of All Things Marvel" (not his official title), Jeph Loeb is setting sails from Marvel  – and probably to an exclsuive deal with WarnerMedia's HBO Max running their DC Universe "hub" (our bold prediction). We know Marvel's Helstrom is moving forward but Marvel's Ghost Rider is DOA, and then you have Marvel's Cloak & Dagger ending its run. The adult animated Marvel block spearheaded by Loeb for Hulu featuring Howard the Duck, M.O.D.O.K., Hit-Monkey, Tigra & Dazzler (and team-up series Marvel's The Offenders) appears to be a go – for now.
Then add What If…?, She-Hulk, Moon Knight, Ms. Marvel, and a while bunch of others into the mix, you'd think there would be more than enough (if there is such a thing). But we still don't know what will be left in q post-Loeb world – and what might take their places.
So what could Iger mean by "many more"?
Let "The Dumpster Fire of Mindless Speculation" burn brighter than ever!
Speaking with CNBC Closing Bell host Julia Boorstin on Thursday prior to the all, Iger also revealed that cable network FX will have Hulu as its new streaming partner: "We're going to create a huge FX presence on Hulu".
The home to Fosse/Verdon, Atlanta, Baskets, Archer, American Crime Story, and Pose will create original content for the streamer, beginning with four new currently-in-production programs slated for a late March 2020 debut. In addition, the network's programming will be made available to stream on Hulu within hours of their live FX broadcast.
The network is slated to create original content for the streaming service. Currently, four new programs are in production with releases planned for late March, Iger said. Additionally, FX shows that air on the network will be available to stream on Hulu within hours of going live on television.

For Iger, it's a relationship that feels like a perfect match that will prove beneficial on a number of levels for both the network and the streaming service:
"I think it's a really good thing because of the brand FX represents. Meaning the power of its programming, the quality of its programming. I think it's a great thing for Hulu and good for FX."

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
