Photo: Getty Images It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a full season of television devoted to his search for a wife. Luckily, Netflix’s Bridgerton has just announced Sex Education actress Simone Ashley has been cast as Kate Sharma, the female lead across from Jonathan Bailey’s exceedingly single Anthony Bridgerton, the focus of the show’s second season . “Kate is a smart, headstrong woman who suffers no fools - Anthony Bridgerton very much included,” the streamer tweeted Monday , announcing Ashley’s addition to the cast. Knowing this show, however, Kate is absolutely going to be suffering some foolishness (and romance and heartbreak) on the path to love. The show’s beloved first season followed the romantic adventures of younger Bridgerton child Daphne, played by Phoebe Dynevor, as she danced around the issue with Regé-Jean Page ’s dashing Duke Simon Bassett. You’ve got to work hard to … [Read more...] about ’s Simone Ashley Joins the Ton as

Photo: SAG AFTRA Last month, the Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists — the labor union better known by its acronym SAG-AFTRA, though it’s my understanding most people just call it SAG — approved an “ influencer agreement ,” setting up a pathway for the now-ubiquitous creative class to gain membership and access protections typically afforded to more traditional forms of creative work. I learned this, of course, the same way I learn about most other economic developments in the influencer space, which is by reading Taylor Lorenz, who wrote an informative piece on the matter for The New York Times. What happens in influencer-land is increasingly pertinent to what happens here in podcast-land, in part because influencers as a talent ecosystem have flowed quite a bit into the podcast business in recent years, as they have just almost everywhere else as part of their search for greater revenue diversification. It’s also just interesting to … [Read more...] about Can the Screen Actors Guild and Podcasters Get Along?

Some say “the future is female.” Wait, before I get into this, I have to apologize for the title of this piece. Apology accepted? Cool. Okay, let me start over. Some say “the future is female.” After watching this week’s featured videos, I’d have to agree. Not because I like the t-shirts (they’re fine, I just prefer tees sans text), but because when I started working in comedy six years ago, and taking classes in comedy before that, the ladies were often supporting players. In discussions, in writers’ rooms, in performances, they were made to feel like they weren’t “as funny.” Not intentionally, most times, and never explicitly (that I saw or heard). It was just a kind of expected energy shift they always found themselves on the wrong end of.
