The first three episodes of Hulu’s adaptation of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale were finally released on the streaming platform today.

 The first look at the buzzy show came in February, when a trailer for the show served as Hulu’s debut Super Bowl ad, kicking off the high-profile marketing plan for the show, which includes an experiential partnership with the New York social club for women, The Wing, as well as an art installation on the High Line by graphic artists Paula Scher and Abbott Miller.

Hulu is The Wing’s first major experiential partner, noted Audrey Gelman, co-founder of The Wing, bringing themed events and a book club to the social club’s 600 members and its 100,000 total followers in social media. 

The installation by Scher and Miller was unveiled today to coincide with the show’s premiere. It will be on display at New York’s High Line park until April 30. The effort “houses 4,000 paperback copies of the novel, which passersby can take down to reveal messages and ‘Easter eggs’ from the story including ‘Nolite te Bastardes Carborundorum’ (translation: Don’t Let the Bastards Grind You Down),” wrote Wall. 

Hulu’s marketing team is also collaborating with the New York City-based design collective and fashion label Vaquera, which will be creating and displaying a capsule collection inspired by themes from the show and the handmaids’ gown and wings. adweek.com
For a long time Alisyn Camerota was reluctant to describe the dark side of working at Fox News. That has changed now that the channel's CEO Roger Ailes and biggest star Bill O'Reilly have been ousted by the Murdoch family.

"Yes, Roger Ailes did sexually harass me," Camerota said in an interview on CNN's "Reliable Sources." 

Other prominent Fox anchors and reporters have made similar charges. Ailes resigned under pressure last July after another longtime anchor, Gretchen Carlson, sued him and the Murdochs retained an outside law firm to investigate the allegations.

Another accuser, Fox contributor Julie Roginsky, filed suit against Ailes and Fox News earlier this month. Through his lawyers, Ailes has strongly denied all of the allegations, adding he "never engaged in the inappropriate conversations."  cnn.com
After almost a lifetime on television, Kenan Thompson might be on a first-name basis with the general public, but he doesn’t come close to registering as one of the most famous people to walk through the doors of 30 Rockefeller Plaza. His time on the show has never translated into Hollywood stardom or his own TV show. Even at SNL, there has always been someone else who took the title of favorite ― a Tina Fey, or an Andy Samberg, or a Kristen Wiig, or a Kate McKinnon. 

The Huffington Post spoke with a dozen current and former SNL writers and cast members for this story. What emerged is a portrait of excellence, and of a man who has mastered a set of skills that many of his peers feel have not gotten enough recognition. 

What makes Thompson special is not best utilized in movies, or on a pre-recorded sitcom, or behind a desk ― but right there, live on air at 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night. 

Thompson makes everything at SNL better. The writers can rely on him to bring them back a laugh. The cast members know that he’ll set them up for their own moment. And the crew members know that they’ll have someone who will act as an on-stage director, controlling the tempo of the sketch and the people around him. huffingtonpost.com
It has been widely reported for weeks that big cuts are coming to ESPN—so widely reported, and dissected, and gossiped about, in fact, that ESPN moved up its schedule and is notifying people earlier than it originally planned.

The 100 people getting cut are all “on-air talent,” a label ESPN uses for TV personalities, radio hosts, and writers who regularly appear on TV and radio. (ESPN says it has 1,000 such people, prior to these cuts.)

In addition to those 100, a “limited number of other positions will also be affected,” according to a note sent to all employees on Wednesday morning from ESPN president John Skipper.

A source tells Yahoo Finance the number of non-talent getting cut is indeed a “very limited” number, but nonetheless, the number is on top of the 100 on-air talents.

In his companywide memo, posted publicly, Skipper frames the cuts around a shifting content strategy. ESPN’s content strategy, he writes, “still needs to go further, faster… and as always, must be efficient and nimble. Dynamic change demands an increased focus on versatility and value, and as a result, we have been engaged in the challenging process of determining the talent—anchors, analysts, reporters, writers and those who handle play-by-play—necessary to meet those demands. We will implement changes in our talent lineup this week.” yahoo.com
