Many years ago, my friends Andrea and Lalo introduced me to the works of Caleb Carr, a historian and author who caught my attention with his work of historical fiction, The Alienist. Apparently, Carr has wanted to turn this book into a film or movie, and in January 2018, he’ll finally have his wish granted.

I only hope they stick to the book as much as possible.

[Television] Univision to End ‘Sabado Gigante’ After 53 Years

Anyone who grew up in a Spanish-speaking household will be very familiar with Sábado Gigante, and its ringleader, Don Francisco. It was the be-all and end-all of Latin American variety shows, and it spawned countless cheesy imitators.

The king has given up his throne. 53 years of fun and silliness will always be appreciated.

The Hollywood Reporter has more on the end of an era here.
