The Price of Glee shows the price the Glee cast paid
January 16th, 2023 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, Glee. [ Comments: none ]

In 2008, we fell in love with the cast of Glee. Just 12 years later, three of them would be dead. Tonight at 9p on ID, we learn about The Price of Glee and the toll it had on everyone’s life who was part of the series.

Things seemed like they were as swell for the cast of Glee as what we saw on television, but it was not. In the three-part series, we learn what it was like to work on the show. And it was a challenging job for so many reasons.

Before they got the roles, they had to audition. One actor sent in a video of him playing fake drums. One person got into a car accident on the way to their audition and was pulling glass out of their hair throughout it. And can you guess who lied about their age?

Finally, it was time for them to shoot the pilot. There was so much unknown, like if the show would succeed. However, whoever watched the episode, knew it was going to be a hit. And soon after it debuted, the cast might’ve wished it failed.

In order to be a cast member, you need to be a triple threat. But not all of the actors could sing, dance, and act. So along with filming their scenes, they had to take singing lessons, dance rehearsals, voiceover classes, and record the songs in the studio for the albums. As a result, there were times when they were working over 100 hours a week. And just when they thought they were going on hiatus, they were sent out on tour. So they were never able to rest.

If that is not enough, they were instant stars. People were jumping the fence at the studio to get closer to their favorite Glee cast member. They were afraid for their safety. So they had to build a wall between the trailers and the stage so that no one could get in. In fact, at least one actor had to move out of their house because security thought it was the safest thing to do.

But what security couldn’t protect them against was the effect it was having on them. Cory Monteith suffered from drug and alcohol addiction when he was a teenager. He was able to get himself clean long before Glee, but was the stress of being famous too much for him? The show spoke to his former roommate and people who worked on the show, and you will get to hear their take on it. Then, the hairdresser, who worked on the show, says something that will haunt you.

Something that has also haunted us is how Naya Rivera died. The show will talk to an expert who might be able to give some insight into what happened that fateful day in the river. While her father gives us insight into his daughter.

Her father talks about the time she dated Mark Salling, and he cheated on her. Were there clues that the show might’ve known about his horrible secret that led to him taking his own life?

And it is no secret that Lea Michele was not well-liked by her cast members. So what do the crew and other cast members have to say about her?

Along with all of the above, they talk about the crew members who died.

The three hours go quickly because we learned so much about their time on the show and after it ended. I left out so much, like who was the reason they went back into production so shortly after Monteith died and the effect it had on everyone but that person.

If you are a fan of Glee, you are not going to want to miss The Price of Glee tonight on ID and streaming on Discovery+.


The Price of Glee asks if the show is cursed
December 8th, 2022 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, Glee. [ Comments: none ]

In 2009, we fell in love with Glee. And 13 years later, we are obsessed with the awful things that happened to the cast since its debut.

No one is more infatuated with their demise than ID, so they are bringing us The Price of Glee on January 16th.

The special will look at how “In May 2009, 10 young actors made their TV debut on Glee. By 2020, all of them would be famous. And three of them would be dead.”

What a fucking tagline. But so fucking true. One overdosed, one committed suicide while being investigated for child pornography, and one died saving her son.

So you have to wonder, is this show cursed? Because what other scripted series had a cast with so many controversies as this one? None.

Therefore, I can’t wait to hear what they found out when the 3-part limited series.


Discovery+ is going to renovate a funeral home
September 7th, 2022 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+. [ Comments: none ]

I am a fan of Horror movies, so I have seen the ones where people move into abandoned funeral homes. They never have a happy ending.

Hopefully, that will not be the case for the Blumberg family, who actually bought a real dead, I mean real live, funeral home.

Heather, Arryn, and their two kids, Rafferty and Noa, are going to renovate a 12,000-square-foot, 1800s Victorian funeral home in Dresden, Ontario. What could go wrong as they do construction in the 38-room house? They find bats and bones, and that is only the beginning.

I can’t wait to see what else happens when the 6-episodes of We Bought a Funeral Home debuts October 1st on Discovery+.


HBO Max and Discovery+ will become one streaming service
August 4th, 2022 under DIscovery Networks/Discovery+, HBO Max. [ Comments: none ]

Discovery recently merged with Warner Bros, and they have made a lot of changes to the studio. One of the biggest changes they are going to make was announced today by Warner Bros. Discovery chief David Zaslav on a second-quarter earnings call. Just like they merged companies, they will be merging their streaming services Discovery+ and HBO Max next summer, according to NBC News.

That means for the 92 million people (77 million for HBO Max) who currently subscribe to the current services, they will have a lot of content to watch. The question is, will they want to watch it all at whatever price point they set?

But then again, there are way too many streaming services, so I say merge away!

Will you add their app to your subscription list?


The Rock is catching the sharks for Shark Week

If ever there was a celeb that could take on the sharks for Shark Week, it is The Rock. Therefore, it makes sense that Discovery Channel asked him to be their first ever Master of Ceremonies.

“I’m honored to be your first-ever Shark Week Master of Ceremonies. Our Seven Bucks Productions has partnered with Discovery to bring you a very special (and bad ass) Shark Week. I filmed exclusively in my home state of Hawaii, these beautiful predators, Aumakua (Gods), are deeply revered and respected in our Polynesian culture,” said Dwayne Johnson.

This year, they are airing 25 original programs starting on July 24th at 8p.
