LOS ANGELES—May 4, 2020—Awesomeness, a subsidiary of ViacomCBS, today announced the greenlight of two brand-new original series in remote production, created to entertain today’s Gen Z audiences. The Click (working title) follows several strangers in quarantine from different walks of life as they form new connections, and Date Drop is a new twist on speed dating that takes place entirely over videoconference. Production is underway on both series, with premieres scheduled to roll out in June on the AwesomenessTV YouTube channel.

In addition, Awesomeness is developing two new YouTube projects based on its hit My Dream Quinceañera (MDQ) series: My Dream Quinceañera at Home (working title), a three-part multiplatform special that involves fans in planning the ultimate at-home quinceañera celebration with two MDQ stars; and The Sweet Life of Honey, a new spin-off show following MDQ star Honey Robinson. Both shows will debut in May.

Following are additional details on Awesomeness’s new shows:

· The Click (six episodes): An AwesomenessTV original docu-series, The Click follows multiple quarantined strangers from all over, as they make new and intriguing connections, while tackling their new normal. Feeling as if they are living under one roof, the group will use a video chat platform to learn about each other by participating in a variety of activities that will potentially spark romantic relationships. Tara Cole is Supervising Producer.

· Date Drop (six episodes): Pushing the dating format into today’s world, six YouTube influencer contestants will meet their potential companions via videoconference "gallery mode" for a series of speed dates to find their perfect match. At any moment, the dater could “hang up” on a particular contestant, eliminating them from the game. Christopher Babers serves as Supervising Producer. Marta Palley is Associate Producer.

· My Dream Quinceañera at Home (working title, three episodes): In this three-week digital journey, fans will follow two My Dream Quinceañera stars who missed their big day in the works amid the COVID-19 pandemic. On a mission to celebrate virtually, cast will seek interactive fan input on party planning elements including voting on their party dress, hair and makeup looks, and the chance to join the cast in a virtual dance practice. The finale will culminate in a virtual quinceañera that will air in June, featuring surprise guest appearances. Tara Cole is Supervising Producer.

· The Sweet Life of Honey (three episodes): The series will follow My Dream Quinceañera star Honey Robinson and her family during life in quarantine, fresh off planning and celebrating Robinson’s quinceañera. Tara Cole is Supervising Producer.

Continuing to build upon its slate of innovative programming, Awesomeness is also in development on 100+ new episodes and pop culture segments for its ongoing YouTube originals: The Daily Report, Life After Quince, Model Material, Cheerleaders, Growing Up Eileen and Vs., which features new guest stars including Brent Rivera, Lexi Rivera, Lexi Hensler, Andrew Davila, Alan and Alex Stokes, the Lopez Brothers, Hannah Meloche, Alex Guzman and Ben Azelart.

Awesomeness Greenlights 2 Remote YouTube Series

Rather than waiting out the pandemic, some entertainment companies are adapting to its unique limitations.

ViacomCBS’s Awesomeness just greenlit two original series in remote production, which are expected to debut on YouTube in June.

Tentatively titled “The Click,” the first show is a docu-series that brings together a group of young strangers as they adjust to life under quarantine, and overcome the limitations of video chat to achieve intimate connections.

The second show, “Date Drop,” subjects YouTube influencers to speed dating via videoconference.

Both projects are targeting Generation Z viewers, which have had some of their prime dating years interrupted by the health crisis.

Each series is also designed to serve as a distraction from the seriousness of the COVID-19 crisis, according to Nikki Scoggins, senior vice president, creative at Awesomeness Digital Studio.

“We came up with these new formats as a way to create and connect with our audience while in quarantine, but brands don’t have to be concerned about being associated with the serious tone in today’s marketplace that may not work for them right now,” Scoggins said. “We wanted to do something that’s fresh, fun and will be evergreen when things are back to normal.”

Still looking for sponsors, Scoggins said food and QSR brands would be perfect for both projects.

“Those categories lend themselves to easy integration,” she said. “For the dating shows, eating the same food or getting take out from the same place helps to share an experience, even if you’re on a date on video conference.”

Awesomeness is also developing two new YouTube projects based on its hit show “My Dream Quinceañera.”

One is a three-part multiplatform special, which will attempt to engage fans in planning an at-home quinceañera celebration, while the other will follow Honey Robinson, one of show’s existing stars.

Separately, Awesomeness says that more than 100 new episodes are currently in development to support its existing titles, including “The Daily Report,” “Life After Quince,” “Model Material” and “Cheerleaders,”

If and when entertainment companies can return to normal is an open question. Among other issues, producers and unions must first agree on new post-outbreak industry standards.

As part of a broader restructuring last year, Brian Robbins, Nickelodeon president, was assigned to oversee Awesomeness, which he cofounded. It was acquired by Viacom in 2018.

ViacomCBS Networks Closes TeenNick Italy

ViacomCBS Networks are reportedly planning close down TeenNick Italy (Italia) on Saturday 2nd May 2020.

Although currently unconfirmed, Sky Italia's online TV guide currently doesn't have any listings for TeenNick Italia past Friday 1st May 2020, the "broadcast day" that TeenNick is rumoured to be shutting down on.

Update (4/5) - Unfortunately, ViacomCBS has closed TeenNick Italia, along with MTV Rocks International and MTV Hits International. Additionally, it has been reported that Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. are currently airing no advertisements, with the credits of shows being "cut off" for the most part. It's currently unclear whether this has anything to do with the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, which hit the country quite hard.

Update (5/5) - TeenNick programming will now be integrated into Nickelodeon Italy's schedules as well as be available on on-demand platforms.

Launched on Friday 4th December 2015, TeenNick is Nickelodeon-branded channel targeted towards older Nickelodeon viewers, and has seen the Italian premieres of such Nickelodeon series as Every Witch Way (Emma - Una strega da favola), Make It Pop, Noobees, Double Dare, The Dude Perfect Show, Vikki RPM, The Bureau of Magical Things, Star Falls, The Bureau of Magical Things, Hunter Street and I Am Frankie, as well as the home of Nickelodeon hits such as Zoey 101, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide (NED: scuola di sopravvivenza), Bella and the Bulldogs (Bella e i Bulldogs), Sam & Cat, The Legend of Korra (La Leggenda di Korra) and Big Time Rush.

If ViacomCBS Italia does close down TeenNick, it's currently unknown whether it'll be replaced with another Nickelodeon-branded channel, such as Nicktoons, or whether it'll just close with no replacement.

From Duesse Communication:


Fine delle trasmissioni per i brand Disney. Si spegne anche Teen Nick

Dal 2 maggio hanno chiuso le trasmissioni, sulla piattaforma Sky, Disney Channel (Epg 613) e Disney Junior (Epg 611) , insieme alle rispettive versioni +1. Esce così dall’area kids Sky l’offerta Disney, che si concentra quindi su Disney+ (a meno di colpi di scena come una presenza del servizio svod su Sky Q, come accaduto in Uk). Sempre dal 2 maggio sono terminate le trasmissioni di Teen Nick, del gruppo ViacomCbs, i cui contenuti sono in parte presenti su Nickelodeon. A oggi, dunque, l’offerta kids di Sky comprende i brand DeAKids, Nickelodeon, Nick Junior, Cartoon Network, Boomerang, DeA Junior, Baby Tv, Super!, K2 e Frisbee.


From Bloggo:

Sky cancella altri canali dal bouquet d'intrattenimento

Ai due canali Disney spenti il primo maggio si sono aggiunti gli stop ad altre 4 emittenti, tre della quale del gruppo Viacom.

E' senza ombra di dubbio un momento delicato, complicato per Sky Italia che a causa della crisi provocata dall'emergenza pandemica del Coronavirus si sta ritrovando un'altra emergenza da fronteggiare legata all'offerta d'intrattenimento che già pochi giorni fa ha dovuto dire addio ai canali Disney dopo un'onorevole storia di 22 anni.

Per poter attutire l'impatto della crisi sulla pay-tv Sky ha dovuto apportare altri tagli tra cui quello del canale sportivo Bike Channel (brand del gruppo Reteconomy) nella notte fra venerdì 1 e sabato 2 maggio.

Anche MTV Hits, MTV Rocks e l'emittente per bambini TeenNick della casa televisiva Viacom sono stati spenti. Tuttavia sottolineiamo che il gruppo Viacom ha spiegato che i contenuti dei canali non più visibili su Sky (poiché la licenza dei diritti di questi canali è scaduta) saranno dispensati sui canali 'madre' oltre che on demand sulle proprie piattaforme.

Quindi: a Nickelodeon sarà affidato il comparto di TeenNick mentre MTV Music (che resta in onda al canale 704 di Sky) potenzierà la sua programmazione "In un'ottica di semplificazione dell'offerta in favore degli spettatori" comunica Viacom.

Ricordiamo che dallo scorso ottobre 2019 Sky ha ridimensionato il pacchetto 'Famiglia' con lo spegnimento dei canali tematici Fox (Animation, Comedy e NatGeo People) e di due canali Disney (In English e XD). Diversa è la situazione con Discovery, con la quale corre già da tempo un accordo pluriennale che dovrebbe scadere nel 2021.


From Calcio e Finanza:

Sky elimina altri otto canali dalla piattaforma

Sky sta vivendo uno dei momenti più complicati della sua storia, iniziata nel 2003 in Italia. L’emergenza Coronavirus – con conseguente blocco forzato degli sport – ha praticamente azzerato gli ascolti dei canali sportivi dell’emittente satellitare.

Come spiega ItaliaOggi, anche la raccolta pubblicitaria è in calo, e in più Sky si trova a dover combattere con la Lega Serie A sul pagamento dell’ultima parte dei diritti tv per la stagione 2019/20. Gli spiragli per una ripresa ci sono, ma da qui a tornare in campo mancano ancora diversi step.

In questa posizione, Sky sta cercando di ridurre al minimo gli impatti della crisi e ha deciso – tra il 1° e il 2 maggio – di eliminare otto canali di editori terzi, dopo i sette che aveva già chiuso nella seconda metà del 2019, e dopo lo stop delle pubblicazioni della guida tv cartacea Sky Life, dall’aprile 2020.

In particolare, dal bouquet dei canali sportivi è stato eliminato Bike Channel. Il brand, controllato dal gruppo Reteconomy di Franco Cappello, era in crisi da tempo e già nel luglio 2019 era sparito dal radar dell’emittente satellitare per alcuni giorni.

Chiusi anche il canale per ragazzini TeenNick e i due canali musicali Mtv Hits ed Mtv Rocks, di Viacom Italia, anche se i contenuti di tutti e tre verranno recuperati all’interno dei palinsesti degli altri canali televisivi che Viacom edita su Sky (Nickelodeon, Comedy Central ed Mtv, tutti in esclusiva).

Anche la storia con Disney giunge al termine. Si spengono Disney Channel, Disney Channel +1, Disney Jr e Disney Jr +1 (i contenuti passano su Disney+ e saranno comunque visibili anche sui canali in chiaro Rai Gulp e Rai YoYo).

Operazioni che si aggiungono alle chiusure passate di Disney XD e Disney in English; oltre a quelle di Fox Animation, Fox Comedy e National Geographic People, canali editi da Fox. Nella pulizia di canali, da ricordare anche l’addio a Premium Joi (Mediaset) nel luglio 2019 e ad Alpha (De Agostini) nel dicembre 2019.


From TV Zoom:

Cura dimagrante a Sky. In parte voluta, in parte no

La nostra rassegna stampa, con gli estratti degli articoli più interessanti: meno ascolti per lo stop allo sport. Meno raccolta pubblicitaria. E, ora, anche meno canali dopo i tagli decisi dalla nuova proprietà Comcast: ne spariscono 8.

Sky canella altri otto canali

Giovedì 7 maggio Sky cinema proporrà per tutti i suoi abbonati Parasite, il film che appena tre mesi fa ha sbancato agli Oscar vincendo quattro statuette. Iniziativa lodevole per un gruppo televisivo che, come tutti gli altri, sta vivendo uno dei momenti più drammatici della sua storia, cominciata in Italia il 31 luglio 2003: lo sport mondiale è fermo da due mesi e lo stop andrà avanti ancora parecchio, gli ascolti dei canali sportivi della piattaforma Sky guidata dall’a.d. Maximo Ibarra si stanno ovviamente azzerando, la raccolta pubblicitaria è in forte calo, fioccano le disdette agli abbonamenti per i pacchetti sport e calcio e, in questo marasma, si deve pure lottare con la Lega Calcio per capire che fine faranno il campionato di calcio e i 445 milioni di euro complessivi che Sky, nella gran parte, e poi Dazn e Img, devono ancora versare ai club per i diritti tv della stagione 2019-20. Guardando anche a quanto accade all’estero, sembrano esserci spiragli per una ripresa, con l’ok agli allenamenti facoltativi individuali dei calciatori e i match di Serie A che potrebbero tornare da metà giugno a porte chiuse.

Naturale che in una situazione del genere si cerchi, intanto, di ridurre al minimo gli impatti della crisi tagliando dove si può: tra il 10 e il 2 maggio, ad esempio, la piattaforma Sky ha cancellato otto canali di editori terzi, dopo i sette che aveva già chiuso nella seconda metà del 2019, e dopo lo stop delle pubblicazioni della guida tv cartacea Sky Life, dall’aprile 2020.

Canali tematici chiusi
Nell’ultimo colpo di ramazza, tra il 1° e il 2 maggio dal bouquet dei canali sportivi è sparito Bike Channel. Il brand, controllato dal gruppo Reteconomy di Franco Cappello, era in crisi da tempo e già nel luglio 2019 era sparito dal radar di Sky per alcuni giorni.

Il gruppo Viacom Italia, invece, si vede chiusi il canale per ragazzini TeenNick e i due canali musicali Mtv Hits ed Mtv Rocks, anche se i contenuti di tutti e tre verranno recuperati all’interno dei palinsesti degli altri canali televisivi che Viacom edita su Sky (Nickelodeon, Comedy Central ed Mtv, tutti in esclusiva): «Dal 2 maggio i canali TeenNick, Mtv Hits e Mtv Rocks non sono più visibili su Sky, perché la licenza dei diritti su tali canali è scaduta. Nei prossimi mesi i principali contenuti di TeenNick saranno visibili sul canale Nickelodeon. Inoltre», spiegano da Viacom, «molti dei contenuti di TeenNick saranno disponibili on demand assieme a quelli di Nickelodeon. I principali contenuti delle selezioni musicali, andranno ad arricchire l’offerta lineare e on demand di Mtv Music (canale Sky 704) in un’ottica di potenziamento di questi e di semplificazione dell’offerta in favore degli spettatori».


From dituttounpop:

Si spengono altri canali su Sky, ma non è un dramma solo il declino dei canali lineari pieni di repliche

Teen Nick, MTV Rock, MTV Hits e Bike Channel vengono spenti su Sky, il declino dei canali lineari è ormai inevitabile
Prosegue la diminuzione dei canali su Sky. Dopo i due canali targati Disney tra cui lo storico Disney Channel, i cui contenuti sono stati spostati su Disney+ dalla società che li fornisce (indovinate chi…Disney), nei giorni scorsi sono stati spenti anche Bike Channel e tre canali del gruppo ViacomCBS MTV Rock, MTV Hits e Teen Nick.

Con tutto il rispetto per chi li fa e per chi li guardava, tre canali decisamente minori. Non solo ma per quanto riguarda i tre ViacomCBS il gruppo che li edita ha subito spiegato che i contenuti si sposteranno on demand e sui canali principali quindi MTV Music e Nickelodeon. Non una dismissione ma un cambio di strategia.

E proprio questa dovrebbe essere la chiave di lettura adeguata e non quella sensazionalistica che prevale nelle ultime ore. Partiamo dalla smentita di un falso mito: i canali non sono stati chiusi per una crisi di Sky legata al Coronavirus. Per carità sicuramente il gruppo sta soffrendo vista anche l’assenza del suo contenuto di pregio principale come il calcio e lo sport. Ma fa parte di un gruppo solido internazionale come Comcast NBCUniversal e pur con tutte le difficoltà, le spalle sono coperte.

Le uscite più dolorose sono quelle dei canali Disney, perchè storici e perchè portatori di contenuti di rilievo. Ma qui rientra la decisione del gruppo di spostare il pubblico e soprattutto i bambini sullo streaming Disney+. L’app nel Regno Unito è già su Sky Q dove viene presentata agli abbonati con un’offerta combinata sullo stile di Intrattenimento Plus. In Italia Disney+ ha stretto un accordo esclusivo con TIM ma una volta scaduto sarà seguita la strada inglese.

Per gli altri tre canali la decisione è dell’editore che punta a una riorganizzazione degli spazi. Un’idea coerente con la contemporaneità. In un’epoca in cui prolifera lo streaming, in cui i contenuti hanno una forte vita on demand sono così necessari tanti canali pieni di repliche? Probabilmente no, meglio concentrarsi su meno canali. E da questo punto di vista sembra nell’aria una chiusura di FoxLife che probabilmente aspetterà l’estate per spostare tutto tra Fox e Fox Crime, tutti canali che fanno capo a Disney, che ha dismesso il proprio impegno sul fronte “bambini” spostandoli su Disney+ e punta a una razionalizzazione dei suoi spazi su Sky (in attesa chissà dell’arrivo di Hulu magari?)

Il futuro è nelle app e sopratutto nella “proprietà”. Quindi è possibile l’arrivo di nuovi canali targati Sky sulla falsariga di quanto fatto nel Regno Unito, per concentrare contenuti propri e affidarsi meno agli altri. Altri che magari finiranno per essere delle app su Sky Q. Il futuro è lì, la tv da zapping con 100 canali sul digitale terrestre è il passato (anche se duro a morire).

Nickelodeon Brazil to Launch 'Nick Gold' Programming Stunt on Monday 4th May 2020

Nickelodeon Brazil (Brasil) will be treating viewers stuck at home during quarantine with the launch of Nick Gold, a new programming stunt which will see the return of the hit Nickelodeon series Drake & Josh, Sam & Cat and Fairly OddParents to the channel!

Airing as part of Nickelodeon Brasil's #GaleraUnida campaign which, complementing Nickelodeon's global #KidsTogether initiative, aims to raise awareness, educate and transmit positive messages to the public during the fight against COVID-19 (coronavirus), Nick Gold will launch on Monday 4th May 2020. Fairly OddParents will air weekday mornings at 9h30, Sam & Cat will air weekday evenings at 21h30, and Drake & Josh will air weekday nights at 20h00.

Additionally, Nickelodeon Brasil will air Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards 2020: Celebrate Together on Tuesday 5th May 2020 at 21h.

From Notícias da TV:

Série de Ariana Grande e Drake & Josh voltam à TV para ajudar na quarentena

Para ajudar o público infantojuvenil que está isolado em casa durante a quarentena, as séries Drake & Josh (2004-2007) e Sam & Cat (2013-2014) vão voltar à grade da Nickelodeon no mês de maio. A segunda comédia era estrelada por Ariana Grande, atualmente uma das principais cantoras da música pop. A sessão retrô do canal também contará com o retorno da animação Os Padrinhos Mágicos (2001-2017).

Os três programas de ouro do canal serão exibidos de segunda a sexta em uma programação especial chamada de Nick Gold, parte da campanha #GaleraUnida que a Nickelodeon tem promovido para conscientizar, educar e transmitir mensagens positivas para o público durante o combate ao coronavírus.

As reestreias acontecem já na próxima segunda (4), às 9h30, com o desenho Os Padrinhos Mágicos. A história é protagonizada pelo menino Timmy Turner e por suas fadas-madrinhas com poderes mágicos, Cosmo e Wanda. Juntos, os três vivem grandes aventuras e se metem em muitas confusões.

A cantora Ariana Grande terá um horário de destaque na grade noturna da Nick, pois Sam & Cat será exibida às 21h30. A série aproveitou as duas personagens, que fizeram sucesso em iCarly (2007-2012) e Brilhante Victoria (2010-2013), e as uniu em uma nova atração que durou apenas uma (divertida) temporada.

Longe de seus amigos dos programas anteriores, Sam (Jennette McCurdy) e Cat (Ariana Grande) decidem montar um serviço de babás, mas suas personalidades opostas rendem as maiores trapalhadas.

Por fim, Drake & Josh será a atração do Nick Gold às 22h. Estrelada por Drake Bell e Josh Peck, a comédia mostra como dois estudantes que não têm nada em comum um com o outro veem suas vidas viraram do avesso quando o pai de um se casa com a mãe do outro. A convivência fica ainda pior por causa de Megan (Miranda Cosgrove, estrela de iCarly), irmãzinha de Drake que inferniza a vida dos dois.



Clássicos Nick em 'exibição de ouro'

Nickelodeon inicia programação com sucessos históricos do canal

"Nick Gold": é o nome da programação especial que a Nickelodeon iniciou ontem. Na prática, funciona assim: alguns das atrações mais queridas da história do canal estão de volta à programação. São "Os Padrinhos Mágicos", "Sam & Cat" e "Drake & Josh". Os episódios vão ao ar de segunda a sexta-feira, sempre às 9h30, 21h30 e 22h, respectivamente.

"Os Padrinhos Mágicos" conta com interessantes aventuras de um menino de dez anos, Timmy Turner, e seus padrinhos com poderes especiais, Wanda e Cosmo.

Junto, esse grupo provoca um caos mágico em divertidas histórias com muita magia e imaginação.

Em "Sam & Cat", tudo gira em torno das melhores amigas e companheiras de quarto mais diferentes de todas. As coisas ficam ainda mais divertidas quando as duas começam a trabalhar como babás. A série foi responsável por impulsionar a carreira de Ariana Grande, que interpretava Cat Valentine, além de contar com o sucesso de Jennette McCurdy como Sam Puckett. Sam também é a melhor amiga de Carly Shay, com quem apresentava o web show humorístico "iCarly".

Sucesso nas telinhas, "Drake & Josh" conta a história de Drake Parker e Josh Nichols. Os dois estudam na mesma escola, mas não possuem nada em comum. Isso vai mudar quando a mãe de Drake e o pai de Josh decidem casar e eles terão que dividir a mesma vida, inclusive o mesmo quarto. Mais que amigos, brothers - essa dupla vai enfrentar diversos desafios cômicos enquanto lida com uma série de problemas da adolescência.


A programação "Nick Gold" faz parte da campanha "#GaleraUnida", uma iniciativa do canal para conscientizar e transmitir mensagens positivas às crianças ao redor do mundo, por meio do entretenimento, durante o combate à Covid-19.

Shawna and Julie are a powerhouse sister writing team who not only share the same birthday (three years apart), but also share a love of genre TV, film, and comics. That love inspired their move from the cornfields of Illinois to sunny Los Angeles to pursue their careers in screenwriting.

The Benson Sisters are currently developing a live-action television show with the Jim Henson Company based on a popular Young Adult (YA) series and recently wrote for Nickelodeon’s Untitled Star Trek animated series. Before that, they wrote on Netflix’s Wu Assassins, The CW’s critically acclaimed The 100, and penned episodes of the Emmy award-winning web series Emma Approved. Alongside their TV career, they’ve written for DC Comics on the popular 2016 Rebirth launch writing Batgirl and The Birds of Prey, followed by a run on Green Arrow.

AFF: How did you break in or get your start in screenwriting?

Benson Sisters: Over the years, we both worked multiple assistant jobs, everything from pouring coffee and getting lunches to finding our way into the writers’ room as Writers’ Assistants. The prospect to land our first staffing gig was teed up numerous times, but either the pilot wouldn’t go to series or the show was cancelled after the first season. But we kept pushing and finally staffed on the third season of CW’s The 100 after Shawna was the writers’ assistant for season two. This is a war of attrition—a marathon, not a sprint.

AFF: What was a major turning point in your career?

Benson Sisters: This is an industry built on twists and turns and our journey is full of winding roads. We never intended to write together as a team. Shawna was focused on writing, while Julie was interested in producing. But we decided to write a sci-fi drama show together and were floored when an A-list actor optioned it to not only produce but direct. Unfortunately, the WGA strike of 2007 led to the project dying on the vine. But that was the turning point for us; if we had that much success right out of the gate… what could we accomplish if we became a writing team?

AFF: Who are some of your favorite screenwriters?

Benson Sisters: So many, but in television, we are huge fans of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Damon Lindelof, Vince Gilligan, Noah Hawley, Sally Wainwright, Peter Morgan, David Milch, JJ Abrams, Jane Espenson, and D.C. Fontana.

In film: Emma Thompson, Lawrence Kasdan, Billy Wilder, Greta Gerwig, Rian Johnson, Jordan Peele, Quentin Tarantino, Wes Anderson, The Coen Brothers, and Christina Hodson.

About AFF's “25 Screenwriters to Watch”:

Since 1994, Austin Film Festival has sought to elevate the recognition and stature of screenwriters through a myriad of initiatives and programs, including its industry-renowned Writers Conference, a film festival perennially packed with the visionaries of tomorrow, and the largest screenplay competition in the world. Released on the AFF website, the 2020 “25 Screenwriters to Watch” list is an extension of its mission and includes a roster of promising and innovative voices, featuring writers from diverse backgrounds, mediums, and points in their careers. A full list of 2020 “25 Screenwriters to Watch” honorees can be found at https://austinfilmfestival.com.

Amanda Bynes & Paul Michael Not Expecting First Baby

Update (5/5) - Amanda Bynes‘ lawyer, David Esquibias, has revealed that the actor is not pregnant, nearly two months after she announced that she was expecting a child with fiancé Paul Michael. “She is not living in a sober living facility,” he told Us Weekly. “She’s sheltering at a safe environment.”

Baby on board! Amanda Bynes is pregnant with her first child. The news comes after she reunited with her fiancé, Paul Michael, hours after calling off their engagement.

The Nickelodeon alum's fiancé, from whom she split on March 8 after getting engaged in February, announced that the two are going to be parents by posting two photos via Instagram on Tuesday, March 17.

“Baby in the making,” he captioned an old selfie of the pair. He also shared a second photo of their baby’s first ultrasound with Bynes’ name listed on the image.

“Baby on board,” the The Amanda Show star, 33, wrote via Instagram on the same sonogram photo.

While the couple later deleted their posts, a source confirmed the news to Us Weekly: “Amanda is just barely pregnant and she is very happy.”

Earlier in the day, the former actor was spotted at an OBGYN’s office in Los Angeles. She was in the waiting room with a female friend, according to an eyewitness.

The What a Girl Wants star was there to have an ultrasound, the eyewitness tells Us exclusively: “[The friends] were chatting about what to expect” during the visit.

“She seemed excited,” the insider revealed, noting that Michael was not at the appointment. “She was dressed casual and keeping a low profile. The lobby was pretty empty so no one bugged her.”

Congratulations Amanda & Amanda! :)

The Easy A actor last posted a photo with Michael via Instagram on March 9, one day after taking down all of the photos of herself with him. “My love,” Bynes wrote alongside the image with a black heart emoji.

Following the couple’s split, Michael told In Touch that the California native was still his “best friend.”

Shortly after Us confirmed the rift, a source admitted that Bynes was “really upset” about the breakup and she wasn’t “taking it well at all.”

“Paul realized the relationship just couldn’t go forward because of the obstacles of the conservatorship and Amanda must live at a sober living facility,” the source added.

The insider explained that Michael had reservations about their romance after popping the question because of the former child star’s complicated conservatorship agreement that she’s been under since 2014.

After her March 5 conservatorship meeting with a judge, Bynes was ordered to seek psychiatric care, Us confirmed on March 9.

She reportedly agreed to enter a mental health treatment facility, but then refused to check herself in after leaving the courthouse.

Bynes has also been working on an exciting passion project, she revealed in February during a check-in with her Instagram followers, something she is "really looking forward to."

"I'm really looking forward to starting my clothing line, and I'm hoping that in the near future it will be out online," she teased at the time.

From People:

Amanda Bynes Is 'Seeking Treatment for Mental Health Issues,' Says Lawyer: 'We Ask for Privacy'

"We ask for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better," Amanda Bynes' lawyer tells PEOPLE

Amanda Bynes is focusing on her health.

After returning to Instagram in December following a two-month hiatus, Bynes, 33, revealed on Valentine’s Day her engagement to Paul Michael, a man she met at her former sober living home in late 2019.

Just three weeks later, the couple split — but on Monday night both Michael, 28, and Bynes announced on Instagram that they were expecting their first child together in posts that have since been deleted from their accounts.

Now, Bynes’ lawyer David Esquibias is asking for privacy on behalf of his client, who he says “is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues.”

“Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false,” continues Esquibias in a statement. “We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better.”

A source close to Bynes previously told PEOPLE she had been residing in a sober living facility but recently checked into a treatment center for continuing care of mental health issues.

Bynes previously entered a treatment facility in January 2019 after she started struggling following a return to the public eye.

“Amanda is still inpatient in a mental health facility,” a friend of Bynes told PEOPLE last June after she attended her graduation from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. “She was able to get an outing pass for a few hours for the special occasion so she could walk with the other students. But she left a little early and was back at the facility at the end of the graduation.”

In a November 2018 cover story with Paper, Bynes — whose mother Lynn has been her conservator since 2014 following several legal run-ins — opened up about her mental health and addiction struggles.

Earlier this month, Bynes marked 14 months of sobriety on Instagram. “Celebrating being sober a year and two months!” she captioned photos of herself spending time with friends.


From Blasting News US:

Amanda Bynes' pregnancy could lead to a custody battle due to conservatorship

Amanda Bynes's pregnancy could find the former "Nickelodeon" star facing even more courtroom drama in the near future. According to TMZ reports, the 33-year-old actress could potentially lose custody of her baby due to her conservatorship.

Amanda Bynes, who revealed her pregnancy news via social media on Tuesday, is roughly around six weeks pregnant, and already there is talk of possible custody issues due to Bynes' mental health issues. The "She's the Man" star is currently undergoing treatment in a psychiatric facility.

TMZ reports that due to the rules of Amanda's conservatorship, which is run by her parents, Amanda could be forced to give up her custody rights.

Amanda Bynes unaware that custody plans for her baby are underway

Bynes' attorney, David Esquibias claims that Amanda is not in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, but, did confirm that she is in treatment for her ongoing mental health issues. He also added that he was not confirming his client's pregnancy, and felt it was premature to speculate over a custody issue.

Despite Bynes' attorney's statement to TMZ, the celebrity news site states that they were told that Amanda's father and her fiance Paul Michael have been making plans to share custody of the baby. At this time, it is revealed that Bynes is unaware of the potential custody plans being made by her family. As previously reported by Blasting News, Amanda Bynes announced her engagement to Paul Michael on Valentine's Day, revealing she had found the "love of her life."

Amanda Bynes and Paul Michael's pregnancy reveal deleted from social media

Since Amanda had only known Paul Michael for about two months after meeting in rehab, her mom Lynn Bynes was not thrilled with her daughter's engagement news.

Amanda also announced recently that she had every intention to fight her parents in court to be released from the conservatorship that is run by her parents. Bynes feels that she is in a place in her life now where she is ready to handle all of her own life decisions and finances.

Her mother, Lynn, disagrees, and feels Amanda needs to remain in a "controlled environment." Lynn also has the power to keep Amanda from marrying Michael.

So, if momma Bynes is unhappy about the engagement, one can only believe that she is less than thrilled about Amanda's pregnancy.

Paul Michael and Amanda Bynes' future up in the air
Amanda's conservatorship has been in place since 2013 after Bynes underwent court-ordered psychiatric care after the troubled actress set off a fire in front of a Thousand Oaks home. Recently Amanda's mental health was called into question once again after the actress made mention of her celebrity obsession Drake on social media.

Celebrity news followers will well remember Amanda Bynes's alarming and explicit social media posts about Drake back in 2013 during her very public downfall.

In light of Amanda's pregnancy, one can only think that her life is only going to get harder along the way between herself and her parents.


From Yahoo! via AOL:

Amanda Bynes 'seeking treatment' for mental health amid pregnancy reports

Amanda Bynes is seeking treatment for her mental health. A lawyer for the former Nickelodeon star denied speculation she’s getting help for substance-abuse issues and asked for privacy.

"Any reports that Amanda is suffering from drug or alcohol addiction issues are completely false," her attorney tells Yahoo Entertainment. "She is seeking treatment for ongoing mental health issues. We ask for privacy during this time, and for any speculation about her personal life from the public and the media to cease so Amanda can focus on getting better."

The news comes one day after Bynes announced she’s pregnant.

The She's the Man star and her ex-fiancé, Paul Michael, both shared on Instagram that they are expecting their first child together. The posts have since been deleted. Michael, whom Bynes met at the end of 2019 through a sobriety program, shared an ultrasound photo with the actress’s name on it. He captioned his post, "Baby in the making." People confirmed she is pregnant.

Bynes, 33, and Michael announced their engagement on Valentine’s Day. They split three weeks later.

"I love her though, she’s my best friend," he told In Touch earlier this month, adding that they were on good terms.

They have reportedly reunited.

A source told E! News in February, "Amanda's parents are fully aware of her engagement and at this point are not approving Amanda to legally get married under the conservatorship."

A conservatorship was granted in 2013 after Bynes underwent court-ordered psychiatric care for setting a small fire in front of a Thousand Oaks home.

In a 2018 interview with Paper magazine, the She’s All That star detailed her past substance-abuse issues. She said she started smoking marijuana when she was 16, which eventually "progressed to doing molly and ecstasy." Bynes admitted she "definitely abused Adderall." As for her mental health issues, she said, "It definitely isn’t fun when people diagnose you with what they think you are."

"That was always really bothersome to me," she explained. "If you deny anything and tell them what it actually is, they don’t believe you. Truly, for me, [my behavior] was drug-induced, and whenever I got off of [drugs], I was always back to normal."

Amanda, who graduated from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in June 2019, had a relapse months later. She reportedly checked into a sober living facility. Earlier this month, she celebrated 14 months of sobriety.

The conservatorship is reportedly set to last until August.

TikToker Goes Viral for Her Incredible ’90s Nickelodeon Cosplays

From Helga Pataki, Reggie Rocket and Debbie Thornberry to Didi Pickles, Angelica Pickles - and even Cynthia, her beloved doll, this creative TikTok user is going to make any ’90s “Nick kid” nostalgic!

Cookie, who goes by @cookiecorp on the platform, has 44 videos of her completely transforming into various animated characters, including many iconic Nickelodeon characters.

She shows the behind-the-scenes of how she develops these intricate costumes, which require a lot of glue, several wigs and attention to detail.

Cookie starts out with her first character, Reggie Rocket from Rocket Power, and sets up a purple wig and pulls the straight bangs to the sides. She spray paints a set of curly yarn purple and pins it as the new set of bangs.

Afterward, Cookie prints out a yellow cartoon rocket and irons the print onto a red T-shirt, pulling off Reggie’s iconic costume. Cookie flashes a screenshot of Reggie from the show and then a photo of her in the full costume, complete with sunglasses and a drink from the Shore Shack.

For the next cartoon, Cookie pulls out a long-haired yellow wig and cuts off the sides — leaving just the bangs. She tapes the hair down and glues them all together, leaving her with two stiff boards of wig hair.

She glues the boards to a headband, topped with a giant pink bow, and puts it back on the mannequin head with the wig. The unusual hairstyle can only mean one thing: She’s cosplaying as Helga Pataki from Hey Arnold!.

For another cartoon, Cookie has a red-haired curly wig, which she splits up into three parts. She hot glues each part onto a styrofoam cone — two on either side of the head and one on top. It’s another unmistakable hairstyle that ’90s kids will recognize as belonging to Didi Pickles, Tommy’s mom on Rugrats. In a seperate video, Cookie transforms into Cynthia, Angelica's beloved doll!

Cookie’s TikToks get thousands — if not sometimes hundred of thousands — of views and hundreds of comments with compliments and suggestions for future cosplay.

Fans can purchase '90s Nickelodeon button packs on Cookie's official website, www.cookiecorp.net.

In other videos, Cookie transforms into Debbie Thornberry from The Wild Thornberrys, Daria, The Joker from Batman, Beetlejuice, and characters from The Proud Family.
