Lucky Prescott (Isabela Merced, Dora and the Lost City of Gold) never really knew her
late mother, Milagro Navarro (Eiza González, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw), a
fearless horse-riding stunt performer from Miradero, a small town on the edge of the
wide-open frontier.
Like her mother, Lucky isn’t exactly a fan of rules and restrictions, which has caused her
Aunt Cora (Academy Award® winner Julianne Moore) no small amount of worry. Lucky
has grown up in an East Coast city under Cora’s watchful eye, but when Lucky presses
her own luck with one too many risky escapades, Cora picks up stakes and moves them
both back with Lucky’s father, Jim (Oscar® nominee Jake Gyllenhaal), in Miradero.
Lucky is decidedly unimpressed with the sleepy little town. She has a change of heart
when she meets Spirit, a wild Mustang who shares her independent streak, and
befriends two local horseback riders, Abigail Stone (Mckenna Grace, Captain Marvel) and
Pru Granger (Marsai Martin, Little). Pru’s father, stable owner Al Granger (Emmy winner
Andre Braugher, Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine), is the best friend of Lucky’s father.
When a heartless horse wrangler (Emmy nominee Walton Goggins, FX’s Justified) and
his team plan to capture Spirit and his herd and auction them off to a life of captivity and
hard labor, Lucky enlists her new friends and bravely embarks on the adventure of a
lifetime to rescue the horse who has given her freedom and a sense of purpose, and has
helped Lucky discover a connection to her mother’s legacy and to her Mexican heritage
that she never expected.
Spirit Untamed is the next chapter in DreamWorks Animation’s beloved franchise that
began with the 2002 Oscar-nominated film Spirit: Stallion of Cimarron and includes an
Emmy-winning TV series. The screenplay is by Aury Wallington (Netflix and DreamWorks
Animation Television’s Spirit Riding Free) and Kristin Hahn (Dumplin’)

 

Cayman Kelly The National Voice of ESPN Honored for Excellence in Voiceover Artistry

Best-selling author and radio personality Cayman Kelly has been included on this year’s Benztown list of the top 50 Imaging Voices in the U.S. and Canada.

Best-selling author and radio personality Cayman Kelly proudly announced he had been included on this year’s Benztown list of the top 50 Imaging Voices in the U.S. and Canada. Each year Benztown partners with P1 Media Group to compile the list from over 300 surveyed U.S. and Canadian broadcast groups, based on voice talent recognition, station count, station information, and overall audience reach. Kelly is a two-time recipient of the award, while also announcing he had been selected as the imaging voice for K104: Hip Hop and R&B and the new throwback station, KZCE 101.1: The Bounce

Making the Benztown list is a big honor for a variety of reasons,” said Kelly. “First of all, it’s industry acknowledgement of all the hard work that voiceover artists do – day-in and day-out – to keep radio and voiceover art alive and thriving. There’s also a deeply personal and humbling sense of satisfaction for me, appearing on this list with so many other amazing artists and performers. Each of our journeys have been uniquely different and inspiring – but we’re all a family of sorts. And I’m deeply grateful to be where I am today.”

 

K104, Dallas/Ft. Worth: A Leading Station for Over Four Decades

“Cayman is one of the premiere voices in media and culture today,” said Service Broadcasting Group’s Head of Content, George “Geo” Cook. “He and I have been looking for ways to collaborate for a while now. Thankfully, Cayman’s agent Robin Steinfeld at Don Buchwald & Associates, and my Head of Production Jerry Vigil made it happen. All of us at K104, DeDe in the Morning, and the SBG Content Factory are elated to have Cayman join our meta-team and add his distinctive voice and creative talent to our content.”

“Geo and I have a long history, and I’m absolutely thrilled to be working with him,” said Kelly. “I first walked into K104’s studios as a young man on a promo tour for a calendar that I was in, 21 years ago, long before I became a radio imaging voice. I remember thinking, I would love to work at this radio station! And here I am now, full circle. Life has a funny way of working out.”

The Voice of Cayman Kelly at KZCE, Phoenix

“Cayman Kelly is top shelf,” said radio veteran and KZCE founder, John Candelaria. “When we developed the unique sound of KZCE, we wanted to create more than a big voice growling at female listeners; we wanted someone who can actually have fun with scripts and connect with the target. Cayman is that signature voice. He can turn it up, turn it down, and his range is limitless. He actually makes my copy come alive. He is easy to work with and his turnaround is fast and always correct. I have not received one error with any of his reads. I am very meticulous when it comes to casting a new station and grateful that Cayman is more than a voice person. He is a true partner that collaborates with me to help build the brand.”

Lily Frilly

 

Congratulations to Lily Frilly a line of children’s hair accessories, clothing and more, is proud to announce their first launch into 1,102 Walmart stores and on their website, Walmart.com this month. Part-owned and ran by the brand’s namesake, Lily Adeleye, a 6-year-old hailing from Orlando, Florida, this launch is a historic step for both the Lily Frilly company and for the retailer itself.

According to Courtney, “Lily Frilly started out as a brand my daughter Lily and myself created, as I have always believed it’s important to let your children follow their passions, whether that be art, sports or in this case, growing a business.” She continued, “Now, Lily Frilly has become so much more than just that – it’s become a brand children love, as well as a symbol of inspiration and confidence for young girls as well as for the black community. It’s amazing to see what kids can do, and we’re so glad Walmart is providing this platform to give Lily Frilly the room and attention it warrants.”

According to Walmart’s Omni Associate Merchant Hair Accessories, Jennifer Aguirre, “We are excited to bring Lily Frilly to Walmart and honored to work with Lily Adeleye, as she represents the youngest founder among our Black-Owned business initiative.  We have been enchanted by Lily’s ingenuity and designs.

(from left) A bus thug (Alain Moussi) and Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) in Nobody, directed by Ilya Naishuller.

 

Emmy winner Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul, The Post, Nebraska) stars as Hutch
Mansell, an underestimated and overlooked dad and husband, taking life’s indignities on
the chin and never pushing back. A nobody.
When two thieves break into his suburban home one night, Hutch declines to defend
himself or his family, hoping to prevent serious violence. His teenage son, Blake (Gage
Munroe, The Shack), is disappointed in him and his wife, Becca (Connie Nielsen, Wonder
Woman), seems to pull only further away.
The aftermath of the incident strikes a match to Hutch’s long-simmering rage, triggering
dormant instincts and propelling him on a brutal path that will surface dark secrets and
lethal skills. In a barrage of fists, gunfire and squealing tires, Hutch must save his family
from a dangerous adversary (famed Russian actor Alexey Serebryakov, Amazon’s
McMafia)—and ensure that he will never be underestimated as a nobody again.
Nobody is directed by acclaimed filmmaker Ilya Naishuller (Hardcore Henry), from a
script by Derek Kolstad, the narrative architect of the John Wick franchise, and co-stars
legendary Emmy winner Christopher Lloyd as Hutch’s father and multi-hyphenate
musician-actor RZA as Hutch’s brother, whose own hidden talents aid Hutch in his quest
for vengeance.
The film is produced by Kelly McCormick, p.g.a, and David Leitch, p.g.a.,

PANDEMIC THRILLER TYGER TYGER ON FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 26, 2021

Kerry Mondragon’s TYGER TYGER is a pandemic thriller (shot before the events of COVID-19) about love and addiction that ignites the emotional chemistry between its professional actors, led by Dylan Sprouse and Sam Quartin, and its cast of non-professional actors, who are the actual hyperreal edge dwellers of real-life Slab City, California. It tells the story of a band of youthful edge dwellers who raid a pharmacy of pandemic meds to distribute freely in Free City, an anarchic desert encampment of abandoned, sensitive, and vulnerable young people. Their chemistry brings to life the whole spectrum of the authentic experience of today’s traumatized youth underworld in ways that are recognizable to those who have lived it.

Mondragon was recognized and mentored by director Spike Lee on the set of Lee’s film DA SWEET BLOOD OF JESUS, and has been inspired by Lee’s films growing up.

By including the actual non-actors who comprise the not-yet-heralded global counterculture we see at Slab City, as well as their very real improvised living conditions and dwellings, Mondragon aimed to shoot the film like a psychedelic Dorothea Lange. His cinematic POV aims to provide the audience with an unforced magical realism that tells a stark truth in the form of a road odyssey stripped of Hollywood illusion.

Catherine Zeta-Jones announces the launch of her women’s Ready-to-wear collection for spring

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Casa Zeta-Jones clothing collection started with conversations between Catherine and Universal Alliance about the ethos of the brand, who they wanted to dress, the aesthetic and direction of the collection.

“It took the course of a year to develop the collection. We have created a collection that not only embodies my vision, but speaks to my customer, a multi-faceted, modern, and confident woman who’s living a dynamic life,” said Catherine.

“We wanted it to represent a real lifestyle, that dresses women  from morning to night, as we like to say from ‘everyday to extraordinary.”

“Before I met Catherine I knew she had exceptional personal style, but as we spoke more I began to realize Catherine really understands design, color, finishing, proportion, and fabric, ” said Fred Tutino, creative director of the Casa Zeta-Jones collection. “We would start talking about one idea and then as the conversation progressed we would come up with twenty more. It is a very fluid partnership.”

The Collection is made using luxurious natural fabrics such as silks, cotton, and cashmere. Whether it’s for easy day dresses, chic yet casual sweaters and knit lounge pants, or your new favorite go-to luxurious blouse and perfect form fitting pants for an evening out, everything has a premium look and feel. The collection is fashion-forward but designed to convey the effortless style. Catherine likes to describe it as “timeless classics with a feminine sensibility”.

The spring collection Future Natural by Casa Zeta-Jones collection takes its inspiration from the colors, shapes, and textures found in nature mixed with an edge of modern luxury.

Buried by the Bernards

Buried by the Bernards 

In 2017, Ryan Bernard opened the doors to R Bernard Funeral Services, offering complete, yet affordable funeral packages to help his community deal with exponentially high funeral costs. With family dra-medy at the center, the family-owned and operated business provides their community top tier care, service and comfort with a side of laughter in the toughest of times. In this line of work, the Bernards can’t neglect supporting each other and have their own special recipe for preserving their relationships – it’s one part understanding, a pinch of sarcasm, and a heaping spoonful of blatant honesty. This unorthodox funeral home is only outmatched by the unconventional Bernard family themselves.

Belle Collective

The new series from the producers behind the hit “Love & Marriage: Huntsville” centers on the personal and professional lives of five successful, glamourous boss women who are redefining what it means to be a southern belle in Jackson, Mississippi.

These dynamic women represent Mississippi’s finest Black female entrepreneurs, determined to break ceilings – glass and otherwise – while shredding long-held stereotypes of the South. They must set aside their differences to redevelop a struggling mid-twentieth century historic district that was once known as the hub for Black-owned businesses.

The five principal belles include:

Dr. Antoinette Liles, one of the few Black female dentists in the state. Dr. Liles is navigating a recent divorce and opening her very own dental practice.

Lateshia Pearson is the CEO of the National Women’s Brunch Organization. Her brunches bring powerful women together and help promote self-empowerment, but now she has one goal in mind: to bring the ladies together to revitalize Farish Street, an iconic Black neighborhood in Jackson, Mississippi.

Latrice Rogers is the young mastermind and entrepreneur behind Goddess Lengths, the most successful hair care emporium in the region.

Marie Hamilton-Abston, a self-made millionaire and CEO of the bustling Hamilton Davis Mental Health empire.
