Colin Kaepernick is joining with Emmy-winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay on a Netflix drama series about the teenage roots of the former NFL player's activism. 

"Colin in Black & White" will examine Kaepernick's high school years to illuminate the experiences that shaped his advocacy, Netflix said Monday. 

"Too often we see race and Black stories portrayed through a white lens," Kaepernick said in a statement. "We seek to give new perspective to the differing realities that Black people face. We explore the racial conflicts I faced as an adopted Black man in a white community, during my high school years."

Kaepernick, born to a white mother and Black father, was adopted in Wisconsin by a white couple who moved to California when he was a child.

In 2016, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback began kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial inequality, drawing both support and criticism, with his More

BURBANK, Calif. -- 

Hula Post has launched Hula Post Everywhere. Primarily developed as a solution to create remote workflows during the COVID-19 pandemic, Hula Post Everywhere is wherever feature and television editors need to be, anywhere in the U.S.  

“Remote editing became the norm once the pandemic evolved and safer at home orders were issued. But as the production side of the industry begins taking steps to return to work, a lot of editors will continue to work from home for the foreseeable future, so a substantial remote editing workflow needed to evolve,” explained Denine Nio, Hula Post CEO. “Hula created a more long-term solution to accommodate our existing clients, who have always depended on Hula to provide solutions for their needs, in any situation.” 

Hula Post Everywhere fully allows Avid’s Media Composer shared Project and Bin feature on Avid Nexis storage that maintains original editorial functionality when working with multiple editors and More

"The Young and the Restless" won best drama at the first virtual Daytime Emmys along with three acting trophies on Friday night, with some winners speaking out about racial injustice.

Ellen DeGeneres accepted the trophy for best entertainment talk show for her self-titled program.

"I intend to use the next two years of my show as a platform for change, to amplify voices of Black people and people of color and to educate my audience," she said from home. "More than ever, I feel like this is a responsibility to effect change."

CBS' "The Young and the Restless," whose co-creator Lee Philip Bell died in February at age 91, earned four other trophies in technical categories.

Jason Thompson, who plays Billy Abbott on "The Young and the Restless," won his first Daytime Emmy for lead actor in a drama series. He becomes the third actor who has played the part to win. David Tom did so in 2000, and Billy Miller won in 2010, 2013 and More

Hollywood's hopes for salvaging its summer season have effectively ended after the releases of both Christopher Nolan's "Tenet" and the Walt Disney Co.'s live-action reboot of "Mulan" were again delayed. 

With reported cases of the coronavirus surging in parts of the U.S., Disney on Friday followed Warner Bros. in pushing "Mulan" to late August. The film, initially planned to open in March, had been slated for July 24. It's now moving to Aug. 21. 

"While the pandemic has changed our release plans for 'Mulan' and we will continue to be flexible as conditions require, it has not changed our belief in the power of this film and its message of hope and perseverance," said Disney co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman in a joint statement. 

Late Thursday, Warner Bros. also postponed "Tenet," starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson, from July 31 to Aug. 12. The studio stressed the need for flexibility.

With reported cases of the coronavirus surging, Warner Bros. on Thursday postponed the release of Christopher Nolan's "Tenet," further delaying Hollywood's summer kickoff.

The sci-fi thriller starring John David Washington and Robert Pattinson will move from July 31 to Aug. 12, a Wednesday. In a statement, the studio stressed the need for flexibility. 

"We are choosing to open the movie mid-week to allow audiences to discover the film in their own time, and we plan to play longer, over an extended play period far beyond the norm, to develop a very different yet successful release strategy," a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement.

Movie theaters had been pinning their hopes on the film as a major July release that could bring audiences back to theaters. 

Warner Bros. had planned to re-release Nolan's 2010 blockbuster "Inception" in early July as a way to lead in to "Tenet." "Inception" will now open on July 31, the More

"The Magic School Bus" has traveled everywhere from Pluto to inside the human body. Now it's going somewhere new: the big screen.

Scholastic Entertainment said Thursday that it will make "a feature-length, live-action hybrid film" based on the animated TV show that ran from 1994 to 1997. Elizabeth Banks will play the manic science teacher Ms. Frizzle. 

"The Magic School Bus," adapted from a series of books written by Joanna Cole and illustrated by Bruce Degen, centers on a group of school children who board a yellow school bus for field trips to such unlikely places as outer space or the human digestive system. 

Lilly Tomlin supplied the voice for Ms. Frizzle in the original cartoon series and Kate McKinnon voiced her sister in a recent Netflix reboot, "The Magic School Bus Rides Again."

The film version will be led by Scholastic Entertainment, Brownstone Productions, Marc Platt Productions and Universal Pictures. No More

A great majority of marketers believe that future brand growth will be tied to marketing innovations and technology, but many of them spend little time learning how to utilize either of those tools, according to a new ANA report.

The report, “Marketing, Innovation, and Technology,” was conducted by the ANA’s Marketing Futures Program, which is part of the Association’s Marketing Knowledge Center. It was developed and executed in partnership with R3, a consultancy that focuses on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of marketers and their agencies.

The survey revealed several key insights, including the significant disconnect between marketers who believe in the power of innovation and technology to build brands and those who actually learn about and implement those tools. According to the survey, 84 percent of respondents believe that future brand growth will be tied to marketing innovation and technology, yet 45 percent indicated More

A conservative social media user whose far-right memes have been praised and reposted by President Donald Trump has been kicked off Twitter for repeated copyright violations.

Logan Cook, a Kansas man who posts under the name Carpe Donktum, was permanently banned from the platform Tuesday night, days after he posted a video criticizing CNN that used doctored footage from the news channel.

The clip, which Trump retweeted last week, used footage from a CNN story from last year about the friendship of two toddlers, one Black and one white. Cook doctored the clip, set it to ominous music, and inserted a fake misspelled CNN caption reading "Terrified todler runs from racist baby," then a clip from the original video before showing the message "America is not the problem. Fake news is the problem."

Twitter later placed a "manipulated media" warning label on the clip. It was originally posted last year but received significantly more More

Ross Katz, a two-time Best Picture Oscar nominee (for In the Bedroom, and Lost in Translation) as a producer, has launched Sui Generis Pictures. Plans call for the new L.A.-based venture to be active in feature films, TV and both short- and long-form documentaries.

Phelps was killed in action in Iraq. Strobl escorted the fallen soldier across America back to Phelps’ hometown of Dubois, Wyoming, in the spring of 2004.

In his DGA acceptance speech, Katz More
