In news that shock nobody: The X Files season 11 only has male writers



Basically:

- None of them happen to be Vince Gilligan so rip our hopes
- Chris Carter, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, and James Wong will be back.
- New additions are: Gabe Rotter, Benjamin Van Allen, and Brad Follmer (CC's former personal assistant). The other two were writers' assistants on S9 and S10. Chris Carter has expressed "concern that new writers wouldn’t be able to match the original style of the series." rme
- The show has run for 20 years, with 201 episodes. Out of these, only 8 were written by women. Similarly, only 2 women have directed episodes for the show.
- They'll shoot this season this summer (July/August through November iirc) for an early 2018 premiere.

Today's hosts: Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Sara Haines, Jedediah Bila and Whoopi Goldberg
Today's 🔥 topics:
TUESDAY TUESDAY TUESDAY!!! The View talks about the mind blowing comments 45's complicit daughter shares in an interview with FOX. She says she's not a political savant and how she tries to stay out of politics. Joy says that Jared and Ivanka are not the liberal advisers of 45. They are just dead weight.

They talk about Senate healthcare bill. Joy gives a rant about the healthcare and the tax cuts that this bill will introduce. Whoopi argues for everybody to get healthcare and yet we pay for wars. Joy talks about how she uses Medicare. (What are the healthcare benefits for ABC?) Joy shares her thoughts on the real problem with this administration is Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. The whole panel agrees that this bill is awful.

Hillary Clinton cites study saying kids who read Harry Potter grow up to be more compassionate



Harry Potter fans worldwide have been celebrating the series' 20th anniversary this past week, with many notable individuals acknowledging the impact that the series has had on our current generation. While speaking at the American Library Associaton conference in Chicago, Hillary Clinton cited a study which says that children who read J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series were more compassionate toward immigrants, refugees, and members of the LGBT community. She went on to say that books like Harry Potter encourage children to dream a little bigger, since it allows kids to see themselves in the pages of a book, as well as many individuals who are unlike them.

True Crime Post: Serial, Maura Murray, and Mysteries

johnny_depp_maura_murray


*Serial Season 3 will not be true crime. Ira Glass says, "Season three takes on something huge and different with characters and narrative but very different from the first two seasons.”.

*On that topic, Adnan Syed will receive a new trial and is asking to be released from prison as he awaits the retrial.

*Two men have been indicted for the murder of Tara Grinstead. Grinstead was a teacher and beauty queen from Georgia who vanished in 2005. Though the podcast Up and Vanished led to increased public interest, it did not contribute to solving the case. Police received a tip that led them to two of Grinstead's former students, who burglarized, strangled, and burned her.

*But a Swedish podcast did help free a man wrongly convicted of murder and imprisoned for 13 years.

*Brendan Dassey's prison release has been blocked, AGAIN. A federal judge overturned Dassey's conviction in August 2016, finding his confession was coerced. He has remained in jail while the state of WI appeals his release.

*A young Chinese scholar's disappearance is shaking up the University of Illinois Urbana-Champain. Yingying Zhang vanished in broad daylight without a trace... the college campus is terrified and bewildered.

*Johnny Depp is in talks to star as James Renner, a man who became obsessed with the disappearance of Maura Murray. A true crime TV series called True Crime Addict, based on his memoir, is being developed. Maura Murray was a college student who vanished and has never been found.

*Finally, here are 13 addictive mystery series to enjoy.


Do people become too obsessed with true crime?

Read Ron Howard's 1999 Defense of Jake Lloyd's Phantom Menace Performance




In 1999, Ron Howard wrote a letter to Newsweek in response to one of the writers repeating rumors for a buzz article in the months before Phantom Menace came out. The writer called Lloyd "Mannequin Skywalker" and just said that he couldn't act (which turned out to be true) for which Ron Howard got offended. Newsweek stuck by the writer but in the next year he ended up quitting and going back to Slate.

The letter made the rounds back in 2015, but it's become relevant again since Howard will be directing the Han Solo film.
