I have gotten a plethora of cool press releases have been flooding my inbox recently that you may find interesting. This post will include blurbs on Mega Python vs. Gatoroid, Secret Diary of a Call Girl, The Roots, Most Daring, Jonas, Chad Vader, and Johnny B Homeless.
- First let me shamelessly remind you of my contest where you can win the third season of Ice Road Truckers on Blu-Ray. For those tha cannot wait, you can also purchase it at Amazon (see below):
- God bless Syfy. Shortly after announcing they are letting you the viewers determine their next crappy B-Movie of the Week (my suggestion: oil mutated pelicans from the gulf battle Chernobyl mutated super-fish), they announce another going into production named Mega Python vs. Gatoroid. If the name alone doesn’t draw you in, the movie will also feature eighties mall heroes Debbie Gibson and Tiffany with Gibson playing a pro-snake animal advocate with Tiffany playing a pro-gator park ranger in the everglades.
- Showtime recently announced that it picked up the fourth and final season of Secret Diary of a Call Girl and will start production sometime in August. The final seasion will consist of eight episodes. No word of when we will see it.
- The Roots can just stay at their day job when promoting their new album when they performed Dear God 2.0 on Late Night along with Jim James, an orchestra and a choir to help them out.
- Just in time for July 4th weekend, next Wednesday TruTV is running a special episode of Most Daring entitled Holidays from Hell featuring fireworks gone wrong, Christmas trees up in smoke, and April Fools pranks gone wrong. Luckily no one got my attempt at making the Thanksgiving turkey on tape.
- The latest season of Jonas recently premiered on Disney Channel and The Daily Beast has obtained a Disney internal research found kids think they are dorky. On the bright side for the brothers Jonas, Hanson still put out decent music over a decade after losing their tween fans.
- Chad Vader is an internet icon and now Babelgum has acquired the entire library of the series. For those unfamiliar with the web series, Chad Vader “features the adventures of Darth Vader's younger brother and his comedic struggles as the Day Shift manager at the Empire Market grocery store. He clashes with customers, tries to earn the respect of his employees, and occasionally incorporates dialogue and concepts from the historic franchise.” Look out for a new episode every month over at Babelgum.
- A heads up that another of Johnny B Homeless hit Atom.com this week.
