Solar Eclipse: TV Aims to Capture Emotion Around Moon’s ‘Magical’ Moment

1 hour ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

For TV news producers, delivering live coverage of Monday’s total solar eclipse will be akin to covering a celestial sporting event and a cross-country tailgate party at the same time.

The challenge is to be sure to have maximum impact in the big moment — the estimated two minutes and change when parts of the country will be darkened by the shadow of the moon — and plenty of on-the-ground material to capture the revelry before and after.

“I’m looking at it as a giant block party,” said Marc Burstein, senior executive producer of special events for ABC News. “We’re going to have really good storytellers on the ground that will be able to bring you the excitement from where they are.”

ABC News’ live coverage from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. Et will feature reports from 12 locations within the “path of totality,” the 73-mile wide swath in which the total eclipse will be visible. The »

Luke Cage Called Out Iron Fist’s Privilege in ‘The Defenders’: Here’s Why Mike Colter and Finn Jones Loved It

1 hour ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for “Marvel’s The Defenders” Episode 3, “Worst Behavior,” follow.]

While “The Defenders” takes its time in delivering on a promised team-up of Netflix’s Marvel heroes, it doesn’t shy away from acknowledging just how different those heroes are. That’s especially true of Luke Cage (Mike Colter) and Danny Rand/Iron Fist (Finn Jones), a street-wise black man fresh out of prison and a kung-fu expert who also happens to be a young white billionaire.

This leads to one of the stand-out moments of the season — one that involves no kung-fu. Instead, Luke and Danny have a real moment about the real world — a scene that both Colter and Jones were excited about.

“It was great,” Colter said about the scene to IndieWire. ” A lot of times when we see good material, it’s refreshing because this is what we’re here for. As actors, we want something to do. We want something to play. That’s why we got into this business. »

How much has changed in nearly a century? When this 97-old grandfather gets to take his first ride in a Tesla it’s kind of amusing because he’s so blown away by the experience. A lot of us tend to laugh and get a good hearty chuckle out of showing our grandparents our brand new toys that are a product of the current day and what is still to come, but their reactions tend to vary from mildly impressed to to extremely dismissive. This gentleman however seemed to be quite impressed and couldn’t seem to believe what he was seeing. That’s
