Out with the old: What’s leaving Netflix in April



“Silver Linings Playbook,” with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Tucker (JoJo Whilden / Weinstein Co.)

All good things must come to an end, even if you’re not prepared to bid adieu. In typical Netflix fashion, the streaming giant puts an expiration date on classic sitcoms and new age originals. Honestly, some of the content needs to get the boot but there’s a few we wish would remain on the network a little while longer –– either way, dozens of series are leaving come April and there is nothing you can do about it –– not even a well-orchestrated protest at their headquarters. Sorry.

Before the anticipated arrivals of the new season of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and throwback movie, Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, we’ve listed the all of the departures on the Spring 2019 chopping block.

Rema drops Afrobeat track dedicated to women around the globe



Rema by Niyi Okeowo

For the third week in a row, Rema is set to release “anotha banga.” Dropping on Mavin Records/Jonzing World, “Woman” is a song that expresses his appreciation and admiration for all females. 

Recently crowned Apple Music’s Up Next artist – previously awarded to Billie Eilish, Khalid & H.E.R – Afropop’s prince Rema has now released a trio of singles throughout June and July. He kicked things off with “Ginger Me,” a song created in a late-night studio session in London with UK producer The Elements. Quickly followed by trap-influenced track “Alien” which took us on a trippy journey through the mind of a young heartbreaker. 

Crediting his parents for introducing him to Fela Kuti & 2Face, Rema draws influences far beyond West Africa with Bollywood, Trap, Afrobeats, and Pop all becoming part of his trademark sound. With co-signs from the likes of Drake, Barack Obama and now Rihanna, Rema is on his way for a global takeover.

Stream “Woman” via Spotify below.

NiteLite Pictures unleashes Coronavirus Positivity Initiative



NiteLite Pictures’ Harry Lowell and Ari Wilhelm

In response to a real demand from its broadcast, Web and distribution partners, as well as charities seeking support, award-winning, Los Angeles-based production company NiteLite Pictures has unveiled the Coronavirus Positivity Initiative, a worldwide effort to create programming that promotes togetherness, community and celebrates the human spirit during the global lockdown.  

Under the banner of the Coronavirus Positivity Initiative, the company is launching a series of programs that spotlight the heroes on the front lines, inspiring individuals from around the world, and comedy shows that take a lighter look at life during the pandemic. All the programs will feature real people from around the globe in an effort to help bring audiences closer together.  

“This is truly a unique time in the world’s history,” comments NiteLite producer Ari Wilhelm.  

“While everyone is doing their part to help keep family and communities safe, there is a need for entertainment content like never before, and specifically relevant, uplifting content that is understanding and respectful of the situation we are all living.”

NiteLite is working closely on the initiative with its UK sales agent Meredith Coral of Lost Art Television to develop programming content tailored to viewing audiences and requested by broadcasters and media platforms during this time.

“NiteLite is responding to broadcasters’ needs and the audiences desires for not only new content, but relevant content to their current situation,” adds NiteLite executive producer Harry Lowell.

“We’re developing heartwarming and comedy programming  that connects to people’s lives during this new norm, while devising production solutions to deliver shows in a matter of days, not months, both remotely and safely.”

The entertainment hub will produce “self quarantine-based” content designed to resonate and connect to audiences. The company’s homebound, creative teams are currently developing engaging programming that can be produced quickly and remotely, while under stay at home orders.
