Some breaking TV news today that I’m actually excited about!

Nightly, my wife and I always have the discussion about what we are going to watch.  She is great at picking shows that I would have never found.  She just has a knack for finding really interesting shows, so I love it when she decides what to watch.

We just finished season 4 of the Netflix series ‘Virgin River’.  They finished the season with lots of great cliffhangers for season 5, but that is a year away.

So tonight’s question of what to watch tonight may prove to be difficult.  I’m sure she will find a great show for us!  Fortunately between all the streaming services, we have plenty of choices!

However I am planning for the future and I am excited about some TV news released earlier today.

‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

As a long time fan of Larry David’s work on ‘Seinfeld’,  I’m also a fan of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and I’m stoked because season 12 is going into production this fall!

They are in the script writing process now.

The show has experienced a chaotic schedule  in years past with the show once taking a six year hiatus after the release of season 8.

‘The Morning Show’

Last year ‘Mad Men’ actor Jon Hamm was featured on ‘Curb’ and today we found out that just months after his “everyone but Jon Hamm” AppleTV+ commercial, Jon has joined the cast of ‘The Morning Show.’

Jon will star alongside Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Billy Crudup as Paul Marks, “a corporate titan who sets his sights on UBA, pulling Cory (Crudup), Alex (Aniston) and Bradley (Witherspoon) into his powerful orbit.”

I am a huge fan of ‘Mad Men’ having watched the series at least twice!  It will be interesting to see if Hamm plays a role close to brooding Don Draper or if his role will be a totally different personality.  On recent TV roles, Jon has enjoyed acting and having fun in comedies.

No specific release date has been set for the new season of ‘The Morning Show’.

Happy viewing, just remember to come back to the radio!!
