Before you know it, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here — and then the year 2022.
I’m not ready.
But what I am ready for is some of the new content becoming available.
Three things to watch
‘The Morning Show’
Season two starts Friday, and new cast member Hasan Minhaj talked to me about some of what they are delving into this season, including racial inequality.
The show streams on Apple TV+.
‘Everybody’s Talking About Jamie’
It’s been a long two-year wait for the stars of “Everybody’s Talking About Jamie.”
The musical about a British teen who longs to become a drag performer fell victim to the pandemic pushback, but finally gets to let its glitter shine.
It was the first starring role ever for Max Harwood, who plays Jamie. He told me he wanted to pay honor to the pioneers of the LGBTQ+ community.
“I think it’s just important for my generation and (costar Lauren Patel’s) generation to remember the history and remember where we’ve come from,” he said. “There’s still so many battles we have to fight.”
The film starts streaming Friday on Amazon Prime.
This Netflix documentary uses archival footage and interviews to shine a light on the already private Schumacher, who has retreated even further from the limelight.
It’s streaming on Netflix.
Shameless self-promotion: If you missed the first episode of my new Fintech Zoom show — Pop Life Pop Off! — you can watch it here. Be sure to subscribe to it on YouTube!
Two things to listen to
Lil Nas X has come a long way from “Old Town Road.”
But he hasn’t stopped making music, and “Montero” marks his first full-length studio album.
It drops Friday.
The year was 2007 when singer-musician Chris Daughtry shot to fame as a contestant on “American Idol.”
He’s now firmly established as the frontman of his band, Daughtry, and still rocking out.
The group’s new album, “Dearly Beloved,” comes after the singer used the pandemic to reflect and recalibrate.
Look for the new music Friday.
One thing to talk about
Where was Ferris, though?
It’s far from the first time Hollywood has intertwined with politics — and it won’t be the last.
Something to sip on
These days, celebrities almost seem expected to be in constant contact with their fans via social media, but I can’t imagine that would be easy.
Social media can highlight the best of us — and the worst — so if Spears wants to take a break, I think we can all agree she has more than earned it.
