This is what the hidden episode of Tiger King will contain

Hey, all you cool cats and kittens! Netflix’s Tiger King docu-series may be returning for a brand new episode, according to one star of the show. Considering how big of a hit the original seven-episode series was, the news has fans practically roaring with excitement.

Tiger King launched on the streaming platform on March 20, 2020, and it quickly became the most popular show on television, per Variety. The series takes viewers on a truly wild ride of tiger breeding, polygamy and murder — a ride with so many twists and turns that it’s hard not to watch all seven episodes at once, leaving many fans thirsty for new content. Sure, Carole Baskin’s blog is full of hidden gems, but a new episode would be even better! And, according to one cast member, one could be on the way as early as April 10, 2020.

At the time of this writing, Netflix hasn’t officially confirmed the “bonus” episode, so some fans are skeptical of the announcement. That being said, there is some promising evidence that a new Tiger King episode could, indeed, be on the way. Let’s take a look.

A 'Tiger King' cast member revealed the news

Tiger King star Jeff Lowe, who viewers will remember as the swinger who took over Joe Exotic’s private zoo, leaked the news about a new episode in a video on the Cameo app. Los Angeles Dodgers player Justin Turner posted the video to Twitter on April 4, 2020. “Netflix is adding one more episode,” Lowe said. “It will be on next week. They’re filming here tomorrow.” 

Netflix didn’t respond to multiple outlets’ requests for comment, including Variety and Vanity Fair, so it’s unclear what exactly will be in the new episode. It could be a follow-up episode that depicts more recent events, or it could be a reunion episode.

However, there are some obstacles to either possibility. First of all, the coronavirus pandemic forced Netflix to shut down production on all scripted film and TV shows, according to Deadline. Tiger King isn’t a scripted series, so it may not have been included in that shutdown. Still, the crew may not be able to safely pull off filming an entire new episode right now.

Then, there’s the timing factor. Lowe said the episode is coming “next week,” which would mean it’d likely drop by April 10, 2020, but the original Tiger King was filmed over the course of five years, per Bustle, so putting together an episode in just over a week would seemingly be kind of difficult.

However, a new Tiger King episode is definitely still a possibility based on previous comments from the docu-series’ showrunners.

The bonus episode might consist of cut footage

Rather than consisting of brand new content, it’s possible that the new Tiger King episode will be crafted mostly from material that was left on the cutting room floor. Tiger King showrunners previously told Entertainment Weekly that they have a ton of unused material — enough to potentially create an entire second season.

“To be continued,” showrunner Rebecca Chaiklin told EW on March 23, 2020. “I mean, yes we have a crazy amount of footage and it’s a story that’s still unfolding.”

She added, “We’re not sure yet, but there could be a follow-up on this story because there’s a lot that’s still unfolding in it, and it’ll be just as dramatic and just as colorful as what has unfolded these past few years.”

Given just how much wild material made it into the first seven episodes of Tiger King, we can only imagine what got cut, or what’s “still unfolding.” Joe Exotic is still locked up as of this writing, but he’s somehow still a captivating character from behind bars. Plus, there’s Doc Antle with his harem of wives, Jeff Lowe’s new zoo, and Carole Baskin’s continuing crusade against cub petting.

While we wait for confirmation of the new episode, we still have the confirmed scripted spin-off series featuring Kate McKinnon to look forward to!

Narcos Mexico: Why did Diego Luna refuse to meet the real Felix Gallardo?

Narcos: Mexico season two was released earlier this year on Netflix for fans to follow the downfall of drug boss ‘el padrino’ Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo. In the series he is played by actor Diego Luna whose depiction of the real-life figure has been widely praised.

Why did Diego Luna refuse to meet the real Felix Gallardo?

The first two seasons of Narcos Mexico on Netflix mainly feature the story of Felix Gallardo.

As fans of the show will know, he was a Mexican drug dealer who helped form the Guadalajara Cartel in the 1970s.

By the 1980s, he was in charge of almost all of the drug trafficking in Mexico and the border between the US which made it possible.

However, as the second season of Narcos: Mexico shows, this was not to last for the well-known drug kingpin.

By the end of the 1980s, he had lost much of his power and was arrested by Mexican authorities in 1989.

He is currently serving a 37-year sentence in a Mexican prison and it is expected he will be out in 2026.

Although when it came to portraying him, actor Diego Luna revealed he did not consult with the real-man at all.

He spoke to Variety about this ahead of the second season of the show, explaining he did not think he would gain much from an interview.

Luna told the publication: “There is a very long interview he gives that I read, but then I realised it was more useful for me to read what people said about him.

“I think if I ask you who you are, you might say half-truths, but if I ask the people around you what stamp you left in their lives, I might understand who you were.”

The actor also told Entertainment Tonight how he would try to ignore any requests to speak to him or those around him if they came.

He explained: “If that ever happens, I will try to ignore it as much as possible.

“It’s not something I need to know. To me, the purpose of doing this is what can be said about the big picture.

Narcos Mexico season 3: Will Diego Luna return as Felix Gallardo?

“I’m not here to give you a take or an angle no one has seen before, because that would be pretentious. And also, it’s not a character that you can find anywhere.

“It’s not like Escobar, where you have documentaries, you have other films, you have recordings, you have books, you have notes.

“Gallardo is pretty much a character that people don’t actually know, so that gave me some freedom.”

Now the second season has come to an end, fans of the show are eager to know if there will be a third outing of the show.

Nothing has been confirmed so far but if it does it has been confirmed Luna will not be back to reprise his role.

This was confirmed by series showrunner Eric Newman to The Hollywood Reporter.

He said: “But I do think [this is our goodbye to that character]. Diego is going off to a galaxy far, far away!

“He’ll always be with us in spirit and, honestly, what an incredible privilege to work with him the last two years. I love him.”

Instead, viewers will be able to see him next in the Disney+ live-action series about his Star Wars character Cassian Andor.

Narcos: Mexico seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Netflix.

Ron Perlman Tells All About Infamous Harvey Weinstein Handshake: ‘He Knew It Was Clammy’

Ron Perlman went viral on social media in June 2018 after revealing he once urinated on his own hands before shaking Harvey Weinstein’s hands at a public event. Now, in a new interview with The Daily Beast, the “Hellboy” and “Sons of Anarchy” actor tells the full story of what happened between himself and the now-convicted rapist. Perlman said his encounter with Weinstein took place at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival, which the actor attended while taking a short break from filming “Blade II” in Prague with director Guillermo del Toro. Perlman jetted down to Cannes and the infamous handshake took place at one of Weinstein’s own charity events.

“I never really had a relationship with Harvey but I wanted to show up to one of his charity events,” Perlman said. “When I got on the phone with him to request a ticket, he just acted like a fuckin’ piece-of-shit pig, like, ‘Who are you to ask me? Do you know who I am?’ He thought I was returning the Revlon guy’s phone call [Ron Perelman], which is why he returned my phone call in the first place, and when he realized I was just the actor he just went off on me.”

Perlman continued, “I said to him, ‘Well, it’s OK, Harvey, I managed to get a ticket between the time I called you and now, so I’ll be there tonight.’ And he said, ‘Oh, you’ll be there? Well, make sure you shake my hand out of respect.’ And I said, ‘Oh yeah, Harvey, I sure will.’ And that’s the genesis of that story.”

Popular on IndieWire

When asked by The Daily Beast whether or not Weinstein noticed what Perlman had done in the moment, the actor said, “Well, he knew it was clammy. I’m hoping he read the tweet where I finally outed myself. That was a one-off. There aren’t many people that deserve that move like Harvey Weinstein did.”

Weinstein is currently serving a 23-year prison sentence after being found guilty of rape in the third degree and criminal sexual acts in the first degree. Weinstein was sentenced March 11.

Perlman, meanwhile, appears in the new action film “Clover,” which was released on digital platforms April 3. Read Perlman’s recent interview with The Daily Beast here.

Knotts Berry Farm Extending All 2020 Annual Passes Through 2021

Like all theme parks across the United States, Knott’s Berry Farm is currently closed due to the efforts to stop the spread of coronavirus. It’s undoubtedly a necessary precaution, but it does short change those customers who purchased annual passes for 2020. Thankfully, Knott’s Berry Farm is going the extra mile to make sure their annual passholders don’t get screwed by what will likely be several months of closure. The 2020 Knott’s Berry Farm annual pass is being extended through 2021.

Here’s the letter posted to the theme park’s website for Knott’s Berry Farm annual pass holders.

As we all continue to navigate this unprecedented situation, we want to thank you for your continued patience and support of Knott’s Berry Farm.  Our team would like nothing more than to open our park and welcome you back.  Clearly that is not an option for us right now, and our priority is to keep everyone safe — our valued guests, our amazing associates, and our cherished communities.

Given the uncertainty around our park reopening, we want to share how we will manage 2020 Season Passholder benefits:

  • 2020 Season Passes and purchased 2020 Season Pass Add-On Products (if applicable) will be valid for the remainder of 2020 when our park is able to reopen.
  • Additionally, 2020 Regular, Gold and Platinum Season Passes (as well as purchased 2020 Season Pass Add-On Products) will remain valid through the 2021 Season, ending December 31, 2021. *
  • For 2020 Passholders participating in our Easy Pay Program, we have automatically suspended monthly billing as of today, April 4, 2020, and will continue to do so while the park is closed.   When the park reopens, billing will resume.   Passholders will need to be current on payments in order to receive both 2020 and 2021 Season Pass admission and associated benefits.

Our Season Passholders represent some of our most loyal guests, and we want to ensure that you receive a full season of fun as promised when you purchased your 2020 Season Pass.  This is a very unusual time for all of us, and we again thank you for your understanding and loyalty to Knott’s Berry Farm.

*Scary Farm Pass Add-On will be valid during 2020 only.

This is an extremely generous offer for Knott’s Berry Farm to make. It means that there’s an entire group of customers who won’t be paying for their annual passes next year. That feels like a lot of revenue to give up, especially when they’re already going to lose a ton of money from not being open for at least two or three months this year, maybe more. But at the same time, it’s probably the best decision to keep annual passholders happy when the park won’t be accessible for a decent chunk of the year. This could be an indicator that the theme park is planning to stay closed for longer than anticipated, maybe through the summer.

Meanwhile, Disneyland and Walt Disney World offered refunds for the time that they’re closed and they’re halting payment plans for annual passes until they re-open again. That’s pretty much the least they could do in this situation, and it’s exactly what customers would expect. There’s always a chance they’ll change their mind if they end up having to be closed through the summer, but that’s doubtful. Considering the size of both Disney resorts, the number of employees who work there, and the amount of money they bring in for The Walt Disney Company each year, they probably can’t afford to extend annual passes through 2021.

Many are hoping that theme parks and other assorted businesses will be able to re-open late this summer, but at the rate the spread of coronavirus is going, especially in the higher populated states and their cities, that may not be in the cards. It all depends on how the next month or two goes.

Quibi First Impressions: Everything You Need to Know on Launch Day

How US-China Relations Intersect With Hollywood | PRO Insight

Quibi First Impressions: Everything You Need to Know About the Star-Studded App

Are viewers willing to add another $4.99-$7.99 per month to their streaming budget for short-form content that’s only available on their phones?

Quibi, at long last, has arrived — and the TheWrap has your early look at the app.

The new mobile-only streaming service, led by founder Jeffrey Katzenberg and CEO Meg Whitman, debuts following a seemingly never-ending string of show announcements over the last year. With $1.75 billion in funding, Quibi has lined up a star-studded slate that includes shows from Steven Spielberg, Jennifer Lopez, LeBron James, Will Smith, Reese Witherspoon, Kendall and Kris Jenner, among others. Episodes will only run 10 minutes or less, in a move aiming to differentiate Quibi from the pack and cater to viewers on-the-go.

Quibi’s road to launch hasn’t been completely smooth: Multiple executives exited the company last year, and, amid the coronavirus pandemic, plans for a glitzy launch party were scrapped last month. The company also is being sued over Turnstyle, the app’s backbone technology that allows viewers to seamlessly move between vertical and landscape video.

Quibi now becomes a high-profile test of whether viewers are willing to add another $4.99-$7.99 per month to their streaming budget for short-form content that’s only available on their phones. (Quibi is offering a 90-day free trial through the end of April, along with a year of free access to T-Mobile customers.)  With that in mind, let’s run through some initial Quibi impressions.

The App Experience: 

Overall, Quibi’s design team did a good job with its app. It’s sleek, easy to navigate and comes with a few nifty features.

After a brief signup to start, Quibi opens to its “For You” section, highlighting which of its 50 available shows it thinks you want to see. The algorithm takes a little time to kick in; the first show Quibi recommended I watch was “I Promise,” a docuseries based on the school LeBron James opened in Ohio. I get why, after entering my age and gender, Quibi might’ve pushed it my way. But even though I’m a diehard Lakers fan and a big fan of James, a show that seemed like a nice PR campaign didn’t look that appealing. The “For You” section became a little more dynamic after I used the app for a few days, though, recommending new episodes of shows I had watched on the app.

Alongside the “For You” tab are three sections at the bottom of the screen: “Browse,” which lets users search by show name and genres, while also featuring a curated look at shows trending on the app; “Following,” which houses shows users have indicated they want to be kept up-to-date on; and “Downloads,” which includes all the episodes users have opted to download, allowing them to watch offline. Pretty simple stuff, but that’s a point in Quibi’s favor. The app is fairly dummy-proof.

Users can scan for new shows on the “For You” or “Browse” tabs by scrolling up and down, similar to someone looking through their Twitter timeline or Facebook news feed.

A few things that stood out to me:

– The advertisements weren’t overwhelming. Shows tend to start off with a 15-second ad, and if users jump out, then back into an episode, they may see a 5 or 10 second ad.

– Quibi’s volume control, which you can find by tapping the screen during an episode, is featured on the right side of the screen and is vertical, rather than horizontal. If users are more comfortable using their phones with their left hand, Quibi gives them the option of sliding the volume control over to the left side of the screen.

– Another useful feature: If users are watching one of Quibi’s “daily essentials,” which includes quick-hit news shows from outlets like NBC, TMZ and Telemundo, each episode has a table of contents feature that allows them to skip ahead to a part of the episode they might prefer.

– Quibi made a big deal of its Turnstyle technology, and understandably so: Shows look crisp, whether you’re watching vertically or horizontally. But I doubt many first-time users, who haven’t been following Quibi closely, will care that much. It’s a nice feature that sets it apart from watching content on Snapchat, HBO Go or Amazon Prime Videos, which only let you view a show in one direction, but it’s not something that will have users getting their credit cards ready.

The Content:

This is where it gets a little dicey.

At first blush, everything seems top notch: The shows have star power; the production value is high; and the presentation is strong. So what’s the problem? Frankly, the shows weren’t that compelling.

This isn’t to say they were all terrible. Some were fairly entertaining. “Most Dangerous Game,” for one, was promising. The action-thriller stars Liam Hemsworth as a terminally-ill former athlete who’s desperate to help his pregnant wife; he soon accepts an offer from a “facilitator,” played by Christoph Waltz, for big bucks. The catch: He’s about to be hunted for sport. After Waltz makes his pitch in the first episode, I found myself fairly interested in seeing what happens next. (About half a dozen episodes are available for users to binge right off the bat.)

Quibi’s “Punk’d” reboot was passable, with Chance the Rapper doing a decent job filling in for Ashton Kutcher as the show’s prankster-in-chief. The first episode features Megan Thee Stallion having an unexpected run-in with a “gorilla” turned loose. Fun times. Jennifer Lopez’s “Thanks a Million,” meanwhile, does a decent job of pulling on your heartstrings, with good samaritans getting $100,000 and being asked to pay it forward. And for people who enjoy “Forensic Files” and “Flip or Flop,” Quibi’s “Murder House Flip,” where designers revamp homes people are living in that were once the site of a tragic event, isn’t terrible.

But they’re also not shows I found myself scrambling to watch more of before falling asleep.

And some other series were just rough. “Chrissy’s Court,” where Chrissy Teigen is judge and jury, fell into this category. The show had a “The People’s Court”-meets-“Maury” kind of vibe, which on paper sounds good. But the debut episode quickly moves from quirky to unfunny. The gist: Joey, an older gentleman who sings at restaurants, was asked by a young man to sing a rap song. Joey, who vaguely resembles the late Robert Evans, turned the guy down and was so startled by the face the guy made that Joey knocked over his $999 speaker; Joey now wants the young man to pay for the speaker. Before you know it, John Legend is in the court room crooning alongside Joey and the wheels have fallen off.

The daily news shows are fine, but they didn’t seem that much different than what’s been done on apps like Snapchat in the past.

Of course, this is just the input of one man in his late-20s. There are still plenty of big-name shows coming by the end of the year; a few standout series will likely emerge. Still, I found myself expecting a couple more shows featuring big names to already be on the app, ready to go. I doubt I’ll be the only user who is surprised Spielberg’s “After Dark” horror series isn’t available, for example. And what was available, while at times mildly amusing and always well-produced, wasn’t earth shattering.

The Verdict: 

Quibi comes across like the young star athlete who appears to have all the pieces, but you’re left wondering if he or she will put it all together.

To recap: The company is being stewarded by a proven entertainment kingpin and a business guru. Its app is understated yet first-rate. The company has plenty of money. It has a grip of Hollywood A-listers signed on. And on top of that, people are desperate for content right now while quarantined.

Yet the question remains: Will enough viewers feel they have to pay for another subscription to keep watching these shows? Judging from the initial slate, I’m skeptical.

Tokyo  and Rio were busy fighting off a military tank and their lives were left hanging in the balance.

How Late Night Hosts Are Playing a Key Role in Keeping Us Sane

Melissa Herwitt/E! Illustration

Does this experience sound at all familiar: You’re trying to set up a teleconference and you can see the other person, but can’t get the audio to work. Or only one of you can hear the other. Eventually, despite this having worked fine just yesterday, you end up taking out your phones to make the conversation happen.

That was the case when Stephen Colbert was trying to get Daniel Radcliffe on the line last Tuesday for what The Late Show has become in the time of the COVID-19 pandemic—an entirely at-home production. 

As in, the host is at home, the crew is at home and the guests are at home.

But such is the situation that all of the late-night hosts have found themselves in amid this still-unfolding crisis that has left millions of people out of work, others risking their health to show up for work and the luckiest of the bunch able to do their work from home.

Whether you never miss an episode (or the clips the next morning) of your favorite show or you can only handle politics these days filtered through a comedic lens, late-night TV has been a pop culture staple for over half a century.

Nowadays there are more options than ever, and it’s impossible to keep up with all of them every day, but we’re used to at least always having myriad options to entertain us. Kind of like how sports is usually always there for us.

Sigh.

Right now, however, most of the entertainment world is at a standstill due to the threat of the highly contagious novel coronavirus. Athletes and late night hosts alike attempted to ply their trades in empty arenas and studios, but that was a short-lived experiment before professional sports and mass gatherings of any kind were shut down.

So, it’s been most soothing to find that the folks who are used to coming out and being funny, creative, informative, warm and endearing in front of a live studio audience are pressing on remotely, be it from a rustic abode in upstate New York, a Manhattan apartment or a Los Angeles mansion equipped with a wood-burning pizza oven.

Most of the usual late-night shows returned to their respective networks with new episodes last week following a brief hiatus that was pre-scheduled for some and due to the pandemic for others (especially Andy Cohen, who was recovering from COVID-19)—necessary breaks either way, it turned out, to regroup and figure out this new format. (The Late Late Show With James Corden is due back tonight, though Corden did host the CBS special Homefest from his own hastily assembled studio out in the garage.)

“He’s in your house nightly, so welcome to his,” went the teaser for Jimmy Kimmel Live From Home, featuring Kimmel managing the usual tomfoolery and celebrity interviews from his den.

YouTube/ABC

Now we have monologues delivered into the void without audience laughter to collectively get us in the mood (as John Oliver said on Last Week Tonight, which he’s taping in front of a stark white wall in an undisclosed location in New York, he started his career doing stand-up in England so he’s used to his jokes being met with silence); audio that doesn’t always match up with the lips moving onscreen; homemade signs; and spouses and kids serving as grips and makeup artists.

In turn, moments have occurred that would be impossible on some normal show with a flashy set and the usual slick-production parameters. (Though Colbert did fire off some swears one night to make sure that the CBS censors weren’t asleep at the switch—and they were not.)

YouTube/CBS

For instance, after they got the audio sorted out, Radcliffe showed off the Jurassic Park entrance he’d built entirely out of LEGOs, complete with a T-Rex lurking behind the doors. Jesse Eisenberg talked to Conan O’Brien from an RV in Kansas. Jimmy Fallon had a heart-to-heart with his wife on a walk and, a few nights later, interviewed his dog.

Lady Gaga was supposed to break news with Fallon on Wednesday, but when he got her on the phone she asked if he wouldn’t mind bumping their FaceTime chat to Friday. Then she called back and said Monday would actually be better for her.

None of this is normal—in fact, much of it is quite weird—but it is nice to have something going along as it usually would, even if the finished product is literally homespun.

YouTube/NBC

“We have to write, produce and record everything much earlier in the day because, since everyone is home, the post process takes much longer,” said Daily Show executive producer Jen Flanz told The Hollywood Reporter

“Instead of watching the final show edit in the control room or an edit bay,” she explained, “we’re now screening final show edits on FaceTime held up to an editor’s home computer screen. It’s super janky, but it works.”

YouTube/NBC

It really does. This format may not be sustainable forever (Fallon isn’t climbing the walls yet, but he is climbing trees) and there is a subtle air of melancholy to these proceedings, no matter how delicious Ryan Reynoldscan’t help but still be, even from a questionable camera angle, or how funny and charming Julia Louis-Dreyfus (KimmelTina Fey (Tonight Show) and Amy Poehler (Late Night) are under any circumstances.

But what we’re seeing night after night is a bunch of dedicated people doing their darndest to put on a show, pushing aside their own anxieties for a few hours so that they can assuage ours. 

Anxiety and fear being a few of the things not in short supply right now.

(E!, Bravo and NBC are all members of the NBCUniversal family.)

The Walking Dead’s Melissa McBride explains why Carol doesn’t fear Negan like everyone else

THE Walking Dead’s Melissa McBride has explained why Carol doesn’t fear Negan like everyone else.

The two characters finally shared a scene together in a recent season 10 episode when Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) delivered the severed head of Alpha – leader of the Whisperer's – to Carol.

A flashback sequence then revealed it was Carol who had freed Negan from his cell to strike a deal about Alpha.

Speaking about their dynamic after finally coming face to face, Melissa told Comicbook.com Carol isn't as afraid of Negan as the others as she didn't witness his brutal killing of Glenn and Abraham in season seven.

She said: "I think she certainly knows and has heard stories, and he's a legend, but in a way of a bit of a mythical character because she wasn't here.

"It's the first time we've ever seen them together and the first time they've seen one another, I believe.


"So there is that separation factor and knowing what he could quite possibly be capable of, and he also has the most to gain if she's looking for a cohort, a cohort to help her catch or kill the Alpha."

Carol was desperate to get revenge on Alpha (Samantha Morton) after her adopted son Henry was slaughtered by the Whisperer's leader at the end of season nine.

Despite the grim nature of their scenes, Melissa loved having the chance to finally work with Jeffrey.

She said: "It was so much fun, and I was so excited.

"But it was great fun, and we did the scene several times and did it different ways.

2020 WWE Wrestlemania 36 Night 1 Results: Undertaker Vs. AJ Styles Was An Instant Classic (April 4)

Night 1 of 2020’s Wrestlemania 36 on April 4 was a blast, even without one single person in the audience. Now it’s Night 2 of the WWE PPV–you can check out the results or the live review–and it should be a ton of fun. If you’re trying to catch up, you can check all the results from the first part of this two-part event below, including the over-the-top and highly-entertaining Boneyard match.

This year’s event is happening at the Performance Center–it was originally scheduled to take place at Tampa, Florida’s Raymond James Stadium. One of the biggest matches of the night was going to be Roman Reigns vs. Goldberg for the Universal Championship. However, Reigns revealed in a video that he pulled out of the event, so Goldberg will face a replacement opponent at the show.

Additionally, the Undertaker returns to Mania, and he’ll be taking on AJ Styles in a Boneyard Match, and Styles explained to GameSpot why having this PPV is so important, regardless of the circumstances: “Our job is to make you forget about what’s going on in the world. It’s just not good right now. But we’re going to get past it. We’re going to get over it. And then, in the meantime for Saturday and Sunday, we’ll make fans forget about what’s going on and just enjoy that time and watch some television.”
