What’s new at Disney+? The Disney streaming service burst onto the scene late last year, got everyone talking with The Mandalorian, and then…kind of quieted down. But Disney+ is still going strong, and they’re greenlighting new shows as we speak. One such new show is a docuseries called Parenting Without Borders, which will be hosted by Jessica Alba. The series will follow Alba around the world as she looks at various parenting practices. And maybe they’ll throw Baby Yoda into the show, just for fun.
Deadline has the scoop on Parenting Without Borders, a new docuseries starring and executive produced by Jessica Alba. The show is described as “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown for parenting”, and “will follow Alba, an actress, producer, entrepreneur and mother of three, as she immerses herself with families around the world, exploring the parenting beliefs and practices shaping families today.”
The series is inspired by the book of the same name, by Christine Gross-Loh Ph.D. The book has a more in-depth synopsis:
Research reveals that American kids lag behind in academic achievement, happiness, and wellness. Christine Gross-Loh exposes culturally determined norms we have about “good parenting,” and asks, Are there parenting strategies other countries are getting right that we are not? This book takes us across the globe and examines how parents successfully foster resilience, creativity, independence, and academic excellence in their children. Illuminating the surprising ways in which culture shapes our parenting practices, Gross-Loh offers objective, research-based insight such as:
Co-sleeping may promote independence in kids. “Hoverparenting” can damage a child’s resilience. Finnish children, who rank among the highest academic achievers, enjoy multiple recesses a day. Our obsession with self-esteem may limit a child’s potential.
I don’t have kids, and I have no plans to have any anytime soon, so none of this registers much with me. But if you, dear reader, are a parent, or someone who longs to have offspring someday, perhaps this will be right up your alley. Or you can just wait around for The Mandalorian season 2. Kathryn O’Kane, who was a producer on the Netflix series Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, will serve as director and showrunner for Parenting Without Borders.
The elevator pitch for Brittany Snow and Sam Richardson's new film, Hooking Up which is available on VOD, reads like an '80s sex comedy. “A romance columnist meets a sad sack near virgin and they bone across the country on an epic road trip!” But while that's a true representation of the film's basic plot, it doesn't touch on the level of damage both Snow and Richardson's characters are working through, bringing depth to the story in a way that allows Hooking Up to feel like a unique and, it should be said, good entry in the rom-com genre. And as Richardson told Uproxx during a recent interview, that was part of the appeal to taking on a role that might, not break his on-screen nice guy streak, but add dimension to it.
Connecting more than a week ago when things were still on the precipice of whatever the hell this week has been, Richardson reflected on his character, Bailey's, rough ride through life, offering an increasingly useful view of how people cope by searching for levity in dark times. But the interview isn't all so serious. We also discussed why it's creepy when people laugh during sex, Detroiters his and Tim Robinson's sadly departed Comedy Central show, his possibly cursed directorial aspirations, and how Veep changed his view of politics okay, that last part is a little depressing.
You inadvertently altered the course of my life last time we spoke. I asked you about the great Coney dog debate. I was on a trip from Cleveland to Chicago two weeks later and basically made my wife turn off so I could visit Detroit to see for myself.
I tried both. Side by side in front of Lafayette and American. Loved them both. But yeah, the Lafayette definitely has the edge. Then I zipped past the massive abandoned train station from Justice League, Motown, and where Tigers Stadium used to be before heading down the road to eat my bodyweight in deep dish pizza.
[Laughs] I'm so glad. It's my job as an ambassador for Detroit to make sure you do all the right things when you go there.
Honestly, I hated that I had to zip through. Honestly, I would have liked some more time there.
You should go back.
I will! So, this is a really interesting film. It's got some depth to it. Tell me a little bit about why it appealed to you?
Well, I was excited to play against type in this because usually, I play like bland, kind, sweet people. I think Bailey is still very sweet. But he's also very cynical and I was curious and I wanted to kind of do that and play a bit of a cynical character who's going through a hard time but is still trying. Just trying to make it in life and that was one of the things I wanted to bring to the character. This is a character who's going through testicular cancer for the second time. I think it's easy to get into the game of,...
