I binge it, support it and want more of it.
Let’s talk about it.
When Kathleen Peterson was found dead at the bottom of the stairs in the home in North Carolina she shared with her husband, Michael Peterson, in 2001, it started a mystery that people still talk about two decades later.
The first three episodes are now streamed on HBO Max (which is owned by CNN’s parent company).
‘The Big Conn’
To stick to the theme, “The Big Conn” tells the true story of lawyer Eric C. Conn and one of the biggest cases of social security fraud in history – more than half a billion dollars big.
The series caused quite a stir during its world premiere in March at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin, Texas. As an added bonus, there is an accompanying podcast with more interviews and information behind the scenes.
The show started streaming Friday on Apple TV +.
‘Star Trek: Strange New Worlds’
The Star Trek series loves a good prequel, and now there’s a new one.
The new show is streamed on Paramount +.
Two things to listen to
Jack Harlow takes a couple of friends with him to his second album.
Drake, Justin Timberlake, Pharrell and Lil Wayne all appear on the tracks of “Come Home the Kids Miss You”.
Not too shabby.
But again, Harlow has been aware that he wants to work with the best and be the best.
The new album was released on Friday.
“We’ve Been Going About This All Wrong,” the latest from Sharon Van Etten, is the album we probably need right now.
“I wanted to approach this release differently, to engage my fans in a conscious way, in an attempt to present the album as a collective work,” Van Etten said. “These ten songs are designed to be listened to in order, at once, so that a much greater story of hope, loss, longing and resilience can be told.”
This is the sixth album for the singer-songwriter, and it’s out now.
One thing to talk about
Hi Norma Jeane.
Marilyn Monroe, aka Norma Jeane Mortenson, is back in our consciousness for two reasons.
Investigative journalist Anthony Summers shared his collection of 650 audio tapes from interviews with 1,000 people about Monroe.
The story itself is interesting, but Hollywood’s story is even more compelling – especially when it comes to Monroe.
Something to sip on
Speaking of the Met Gala and history, a reminder that Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Pete Davidson actually met for the first time at the Met Gala last year.
She was estranged from husband Kanye West, and Davidson was single at the time.
“He knew I was hosting ‘SNL,’ but it was not announced yet,” Kardashian recalled. “So he came to me and we were talking about ‘SNL’.”
She said Davidson asked for her number, but since she was wearing gloves, she could not get into her phone. When she told “SNL” starring it, he said “Cool” and left.
That, of course, was not the end of their story. They came again when she appeared in his show, kissed during a sketch, and the rest is, as they say … see above.
