AMC Is Developing a Black Lives Matter TV Show

AMC is developing a drama series about the creation of the Black Lives Matter movement, based off of the bestselling book by Pulitzer winner Wesley Lowery, They Can’t Kill Us All: Ferguson, Baltimore, and a New Era in America’s Racial Justice.

The show will use the nonfiction novel as a jumping off point, but, Deadline reports, the characters and narratives in the series will be fictional.

They Can’t Kill Us All examines police brutality in segregated neighborhoods has led to the high-profile murders of Michael Brown, Tamir Rice and Freddie Gray, and the subsequent fight for justice that birthed Black Lives Matter. The TV adaptation will be written by LaToya Morgan (Into the Badlands, Turn: Washington’s Spies).

The show is being produced by Makeready, who’ve got an impressive roster of upcoming projects, including work from producers like Leonardo DiCaprio and Chloe Grace Moretz.

Riz Ahmed Addresses Systemic Lack of TV Diversity in Emmys Press Conference

Share Button

 

Riz Ahmed won the Best Actor in a Limited Series at last night’s Emmy awards, becoming the first person of Asian heritage to receive an Emmy for acting. While this is significant, Ahmed pointed out in a press conference after his win that one trophy does not mean a finite change to the “systemic issue of inclusion.”

“I don’t know if any one person’s win, or one person snagging a role, or one person doing very well, changes something that’s a systemic issue of inclusion,” he explained. “I think that’s something that happens slowly over time. If there’s enough isolated examples of success over time then the dots start joining up and it is not as slow a process as it sometimes is.”

Take a look at his press conference.

 

 

In terms of diversity, this year’s Emmys proved historic: Donald Glover became the first black man to win an Emmy for comedy directing for Atlanta, and Lena Waithe became the first black woman to win for comedy writing for Master of None. 

Ahmed’s acceptance speech also addressed issues of race and xenophobia:

“It’s always strange reaping the rewards of a story that’s based on real world suffering,” he said. “If this show has shone a light on some of the prejudice in our society, Islamophobia, some of the injustice in our justice system, then maybe that’s something.” Take a look below.

Chromat’s Spring 18 show this NYFW saw a diverse cast of models of all shapes, ages, races, gender identities, and sizes grace the runway, further cementing the brand as a leader in inclusive, socially-conscious (and impeccably designed) fashion.

 

 

Women walked the runway in swim and athleticwear that included denim crop tops, crystal-covered G-strings and gold, puffy foil sleeves. The feeling in the air was electric—each model seemed to trigger a response of overwhelming awe as she strutted the catwalk, while the gorgeous howling of Suzi Analogue composed an ethereal soundtrack over the whole scene. Upon each seat in the audience was placed a zine created in collaboration with Chromat’s mastermind, Becca McCharen-Tran, and her collection of influencer models.

 

 

Among those in the show were the gorgeous trans Filipino model Leyna Bloom, who opened the show, and Maya Monès, pictured above, who closed the show in a shiny golden skirt-dress.

The show was a glorious representation of Chromat’s ability to update their designs in subtle yet eternally fresh and forward-thinking ways. Enjoy some of our favorite looks in this article, and head here to check out the full show.

Lana Sadly Drives Away From a Long-Haired Man in ‘White Mustang’ Video

Share Button

 

Lana’s just dropped the music video for “White Mustang,” and the best word to describe it is simply classic.

Lana wears a flowy floral gown. Lana straddles a man on her living room floor. Lana sips a cocktail. Lana drives away into the night while a long-haired man pursues her.

It’s certainly not anything to suprising from our Lady of Lamentation, but it’s the kind of scenarios Del Rey does best, and we’re here for it. There’s also a lot of thigh caressing, which is really fun.

“White Mustang” is off Lana’s latest album, Lust For Life, which has also seen the release of videos for the title track and “Love.” Take a look below:

Italian musician L I M, previously part of the dui Iori’s Eyes, has released the music video accompanying her new single, “Rushing Guy.”

In the clip, a series of male models subtly morph into each other’s faces, so gradually that the resulting film is positively entrancing. Take a look below.

 

 

L I M (Sofia Gallotti) began her solo musical project in 2014 in Edinburgh, leading to last year’s debut EP Comet, which has garnered strong review among European critics. Take a listen to the full album below.

 

Laverne Cox is the New Face of Beyoncé’s Ivy Park

For its fourth season, Beyonce’s activewear line, Ivy Park, has tapped actress Laverne Cox to be the face of its Fall 17 campaign. Cox is joined by Bey’s 60-year-old choreographer, Karen McDonald, as well as models Grace Bol and (our eternal Insta-crush) Ralph Souffrant.

“The message for this campaign is to celebrate everyone’s uniqueness,” Beyoncé says. “True beauty and power are born out of strength of character and defined from the inside out. There is no one standard of beauty.”

Here are Cox and Souffrant together…

And here’s Souffrant again (you’re welcome)…

And here’s the Ivy Park Fall 17 campaign video…

The first full trailer for Natasha Lyonne’s directorial debut with Kenzo is finally here, and it looks as magnificently vaudevillian as we could have ever dreamed.

The film also stars Fred Armisen, Leslie Odom Jr., Greta Lee, Macaulay Culkin, Waris Ahluwalia, James Ransone, Matt Lucas and Natasha herself. Titled Cabiria, Charity, Chastity, it is  about, according to Paper“the illusion of significance in a surreal, unjust and often unintelligible world, yet finding meaning within it and retaining a form of hope despite of it.”

The full film will be released September 15.
