First Look: House Of Cards Season 3 Trailer

First Look: House Of Cards Season 3 Trailer

Some of the biggest buzz surrounding last night’s Oscar’s broadcast had little to do with Neal Patrick Harris in tighty-whities, John Travolta heavy-petting Idina Menzel’s face or John Legend and Common’s moving musical performance to their Oscar-winning song, “Glory.” Today, many people are talking about the President of the United States. Okay, okay, the fictional President of the United States, but still…people can’t stop talking about Francis Underwood, the devilish fake president played by Kevin Spacey on Netflix’s House of Cards and the series’ dramatic Season 3 trailer. Last week, the third season of the critically acclaimed drama was “accidentally” … Continue reading

Esquire Network documentary series to chronicle Clay Aiken’s congressional campaign

Esquire Network documentary series to chronicle Clay Aiken's congressional campaign

Clay Aiken, perhaps the most famous second-place finalist on American Idol (he was runner-up to Ruben Studdard in Season 2), came in second once again yesterday when North Carolina voters chose not to elect him to the House, opting to stick with incumbent representative Renee Ellmers. Had he won in the predominantly Republican 2nd Congressional District, Aiken, who ran as a Democrat, would have been the South’s first openly gay representative in Congress. The drama of Clay Aiken’s improbable congressional campaign will be chronicled in a four-hour documentary series for Esquire Network, set to premiere on the cable channel in … Continue reading

If the 1980s were America’s technicolor candy land, filled with shoulder pads and parachute pants, MTV and the Brat Pack, the 90s was the decade that grew us up a little and connected us a lot, in ways that both thrilled and horrified us. With television cameras in places they’d never gone before — courtrooms, war zones, emerging crime scenes — the line between news and entertainment blurred and then nearly disappeared, while, in the White House, … Continue reading
