Viacom studios 1a

The 88,000-square-foot studio will serve production for network brands, such as Nickelodeon, MTV and Comedy Central. Their goals to help “global productions in multiple languages.” Including daily scripted series, music special, game shows and short-form content for mobile and digital platforms.

Viacom is already produced shows for  Nickelodeon’s telenovela Every Witch Way, Grachi, Talia in the Kitchen,  and I am Frankie.

“We have had terrific success with the recent live-action productions we have coming from Miami, and we are very excited to be committed to doing more,” said Cyma Zarghami, president Viacom Kids and Family “We are constantly looking for new creative ideas and content formats that allow us to tell stories in a completely different way, and this facility will certainly forward that effort.”

The studio has two 15,000-square-foot sound stages, 12 post-production rooms, 16 dressing rooms, 6-star dressing room, two make-up rooms, two-green rooms, production offices, commissary seating for up to 200. Warehouse space with wardrobe rooms with washing and dryers and rooms to accommodate other places such as boardrooms.

This is a great for filmmaking too. Florida is a beautiful state, and they have beautiful location shots including the beaches. Check them out here. And here too.

Sources say by one of the actors, the building is built over a gravesite. So, if it is big, and covers a lot of space. It took over a grave site.

Annie the Backseat Driver Cow in a Pick-Up Truck

So, what do you called a cow that rides on the back of a pick-up truck? Mooo-vin!

I know it’s a bad joke of a cow riding in a pick-up truck, but actually, the cow enjoys riding in the backseat of a pick-up truck and sticking her head out the window and enjoying the breeze.

By the way, the cow name is Annie, but people in the social media call her Annie the Highway Cow, and she now has a Facebook page? The video has been viewing a million times since this week alone.

Wow, the cow is a celebrity now. She could be the spokesperson or spokes-animal for Chick-fil-A. Eat more chicken. 

Anyway, Annie is a rescue cow. Her family rescued her, and her twin from a factory farm and the mother rejected her. Her owner, Cory Morris says “loves to go for rides in the truck”

Please check out her updates of what she is doing. Here. (Facebook page)

Manifest

Manifest 1

Have you ever thought when you are flying on an airplane, that you could travel into the future? That’s what happened in the new show called Manifest on NBC on Monday nights!

Melissa Roxburgh

Michaela and Ben Stone (sister and brother) had a rocky reunion with their families when they came back from the airport. They left Jamaica in 2013 and came back in 2018. What happened, Michaela (Melissa Roxburgh, top), Ben (Josh Dallas, bottom)  and Ben’s son Cal aboard Montego flight 828 and the rest of the people were assumed to be dead for the past five years.

Josh Dallas

Turbulence and lightning caused the plane to skip ahead into the future of 2018.

Be careful when you take your next flight!

Ben and Michaela realize things were different when they landed in 2018. Ben’s daughter Olive grew up while her twin brother Cal, who has leukemia, is still the same since 2013. Ben’s wife Grace move on, and he doesn’t know where to find her.  

And Michaela Stone is welcome back to her job at NYPD but finds out that her boyfriend who she reluctant to marry back in 2013 for some vague reason, he is with her best friend.

That’s bummer. Don’t go missing for five years.

And also, she learns that her beloved mother got sick and passed away during her absence. Ben and Michaela now have psychic abilities to hear voices in their head and the ability to foresee future events.

Maybe she could win the lottery too?

Another passenger, by the name of Dr. Saanvi (Parveen Kaur) whose research could be the key to saving Cal’s life. Her laptop got broken during turbulence. When she came back, they were already using her regeneration experimental of stem cells in an acceleration motion.

While the rest of the survivors has a connection to the flight and maybe they have special abilities too, that will be explained in future episodes. Who are these people? And why did they survive? What is their mission?

But all of the survivors were summon to the plane and watch the explosion of their aircraft disintegrate.  Meaning they can’t go back, they must try to figure out why they were sent to the future and fix whatever they need to do. It’s like your worst nightmare coming true.

It’s like Lost but different.

Be sure to watch Manifest on NBC on Mondays at 10pm!

It Looks Like Rein (Rain) Deers

loch Ness Hurrican flo

We are all experts in something, and we have skill and talents. We can play an instrument, sing, dance, and act. But how much do we know about our weather?

We can quickly, look out the window and tell that a storm is coming or watch it on the news before and we post it on Facebook. When we write a post on Facebook, we could be overdramatic in our writing. We all want to be a journalist one day and tell the truth, and they are fake news all over the place. Spreading rumors like there’s a shark swimming in the city or they found a Loch Ness monster too.  

Sharkando?

Loch Ness Monster?

Really?

When posting a post on facebook just informed people to be safe and take cover.  Scaring them, people would panic. Like it’s the storm of the century, it’s the big one, and it’s the end of the world! We are not going to die just because the storm is coming, it might flood some areas, but what we can do is prepare ourselves before the storm is coming. Get your supplies before the store shelves are empty!

The news is the best source of what to do when the storm comes in your area. For example, when reporters tell you the safest part of the room is the bathroom. If we go to the toilet, how will we know if someone wants to go to the bathroom and we are in the bathroom? What about privacy when using the bathroom? Then,  someone flushes the toilet!

The weather apps on your cell phone, but are they accurate to forecast the storm and other daily forecasts? Do you know most people either use it or not before they go out? They expect the weather will be the same as yesterday. Do people check the weather before they go out?  Probably not. They depend on weather apps on their phone and the national weather channel. Have you ever watch your local TV weather in your local area? Before you go out? You will never know what kind of weather you will have tomorrow. It could be raining squirrels!

America’s Got Talent: Aaron Crow

Aaron Cowell

Aaron Crow is somewhat like he was  Sacred Riana, but different. He doesn’t twitch his face but stares at the judges, and he knows his magic and his performance quite fantastic. He was one of the bottom three along with Daniel Emmet and The Future Kings. Daniel Emmet and Aaron Crow were saved, and unfortunately, The Future Kings was eliminated.  

Us the Duo

Hans

Us the Duo (above)  and Accordion Hans. Hans was a  fantastic performer, why do they have to pair him with Us the Duo, I swear this show is rigged.  They match contestants with the most votes and the least side by side in different categories. Us the Duo was saved, and Accordion Hans put a smile on his face as he left the stage. He’s a happy guy. If people get rejected for any reason, just put on a pleasant smile and leave. Accordion Hans will be remembered because he is rememberable.  He impresses the judges and America.

Brian-King-Joseph

Brian King Joseph, the violinist player, and Joseph O’ Brien, singer. Even though Joseph O’Brien was eliminated, he’s a fantastic singer and songwriter. He was the total package.  He will do better. Will his crush be there? Brian King Joseph played his violin, and it was fantastic. I love classical music soundtracks played on a violin, and Brian King Joesph was astonished, and he survives to stay in the competition.  

michael-ketterer

Michael Ketterer brought Simon Cowell to tears, and his performance was extraordinary. Some of the other judges were in tears too, it was very emotional, and he sang great. He was saved.

Rob Lake

Rob Lake, made a motorcycle disappear which was great, and reappear in the audience. Unfortunately, the judges thought, the act was cheesy, maybe the judges were hungry. Why would people want to reveal how the magic was done? Magic should be entertaining to watch, that’s what magician do. It’s living for them.  If you know it, just walk away from it and watch a showgirl act next door. Just enjoy it. UDI dance disappeared, and Tyra banks’ Zurcaroh dance team was saved.

Be sure to watch  America’s Got Talent every Tuesday and Wednesday on NBC at 8 pm!

Neil Simon Master of Comedy Died

neil-simon

Neil Simon is a master of Comey – I meant comedy, his playwriting and screenplays were a success on the big screen, TV, and Broadway. His plays deal with urban living, agonizing conflicts of family intimacy. Died on Sunday in Manhattan. He was 91. The cause was a complication of pneumonia.  

His career started as sketch comedy writer with Sid Caesar in “Your Show of Shows” where he worked with Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner, Larry Gelbart, and Sid Caesar.

Simon dominated Broadway in the 1960’s and 70’s with hits like “The Prisoner of Second Avenue,” “The Sunshine Boys,” (my favorite)“California Suite,” “Chapter Two.” “Barefoot in the Park.” “The Odd Couple.” “Sweet Charity.” “Plaza Suite.” “The Last of the Red Hot Lovers.” “Brighton Beach Memoirs.” “Lost in Yonkers.” and “Laughter on the 23rd Floor.”  To name a few. He wrote more than 30 plays.

He wrote the books for the musicals “Promises, Promises” and “They’re Playing Our Song.”  And his plays won Tonys for actors and play writings too.

He will be missed. But he kept us laughing with his movies and Broadway.
