Heathers: The Musical is going to make a killing on The Roku Channel
August 2nd, 2022 under Roku. [ Comments: none ]

Staged musicals are no longer just for the stage. Thanks to Disney+ streaming Hamilton and Trevor the Musical, Apple TV+ sharing Come From Away with us, and Netflix thinking we wanted to see Diana: The Musical.

Well, The Roku Channel, which got an Emmy nomination for Zoey’s Extraordinary Christmas, wants to stay and get into the musical business so that they will be debuting Heathers: The Musical on September 16th.

The West End production is based on the 1989 movie that starred Shannen Doherty and Christain Slater.

Let’s just hope they have better luck airing their take on Heathers than the Paramount Channel that never got to air the TV series based on the movie due to school shootings.


Weird: The Story of Al Yankovic gets a premiere date

Weird: The Story of Al Yankovic is the most-anticipated film of the year. And today, we found out when it will debut on The Roku Channel. That date is November 4th. So mark your calendars because you don’t want to miss it.

I expect the telemovie to sweep the Emmys with Daniel Radcliffe walking away with Best Actor as the man himself. It would be a travesty if he and the movie did not win.

Oh, and The Roku Channel is the new UHF! Get it?

Quinta Brunson is having quite the 2022! First, her ABC show Abbott Elementary is a huge hit! So much so, she and the sitcom got Emmy nominations.

If that is not enough amazing news for the actress, here is even more. And this is her biggest accomplishment to date! Brunson will be playing Oprah Winfrey in Roku’s Weird: The Al Yankovic Story.

Do you know how many actors and actresses would do anything to play Lady O? And Brunson is actually doing it? What is left for her? I know, continue to make us laugh!


The Weird: The Al Yankovic Story trailer is magnificient 
May 3rd, 2022 under Harry Potter, Roku, Weird Al Yankovic. [ Comments: none ]

Roku released the first trailer for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story with Daniel Radcliffe in the title role.

All I will say is that Harry Potter worked his magic, both literally and figuratively, because that is brilliant. It reminds me of Weird Al’s music video, I Lost on Jeopardy.

Radcliffe was born to play this role, and he deserves all the accolades he is going to get for it.

When it comes to the biopic, I can’t wait to see what new things we learn about the most famous accordion player in the World!

The Movie of the Week is coming to The Roku Channel later this year. It is not the only thing coming to channel this year. To see what else will be streaming there for free, then click here!

In case you haven’t heard, Roku is doing a biopic about Weird Al Yankovic with Funny or Die. Last week, we saw Daniel Radcliffe in character because he is playing the title role.

Today, we found out that Evan Rachel Wood will be playing Madonna, and Shlock Rocker shared a photo of her as the singer. Weird Al covered her song Like a Virgin and parodied it into Like a Surgeon to become one of his biggest hits.

Rolling Stone also revealed who is else is starring in the movie. Rainn Wilson is playing the legendary radio host, Dr. Demento, who gave Weird Al his big break. Toby Huss and Julianne Nicholson will play his late parents, Nick and Mary. Their death still haunts me to this day.
