I'm Isabella Rossini, thanks for joining us here at Naked News. We're starting off with the latest from TV land! The Ashley Madison scandal has rocked the online world, and guess what? A show about the site's rise - and potential fall - could be coming to the small screen! Eila Adams has all the details, Inside the Box!
The Ashley Madison leak was bad news for the 30 odd million people who had their private info exposed, but it could be great news for production company OutEast Entertainment. It's partners are pitching a new project called "Thank You Ashley Madison". Rather than centering the plot around founder Noel Biderman, the writers are making the story about a fictional mother who launches the site to help support her family. The show's writers say any time 30 million people are doing something, it's worthy of discussion. We'll soon find out if Hollywood feels the same way!
Big news for Sons of Anarchy fans: a spinoff could be in the works! Creator Kurt Sutter says he's prepping a potential spinoff focusing on the show's Mayans Motorcycle Club. In the original series, the Mayans were rivals to the Sons of Anarchy, but the gangs eventually formed an uneasy partnership. Sutter's keeping tight-lipped on the details, but one thing's for sure: he certainly has his hands full! He's been busy producing the upcoming FX medieval drama "The Bastard Executioner", so who knows when the Sons spinoff will see the light of day.
Stephen Colbert's looking to get a boost from A-list talent when he debuts as host of The Late Show next month! Colbert will have George Clooney as his very first guest in the premiere. MY vote would have been for Jon Stewart, but I guess George is a pretty good plan B. The rest of the first week is packed with other big names including Scarlett Johansson, Amy Schumer, Kendrick Lamar and Stephen King! Colbert takes the reins on CBS starting September 8th!
And if you think people are getting tired of zombies, think again! "Fear The Walking Dead", AMC's new spinoff series to smash hit "The Walking Dead", broke cable ratings records when it debuted on Sunday. The 90 minute premiere pulled in 10.1 million viewers, easily surpassing the previous record of 7.7 million set by TNT's "Raising The Bar" in 2008. "Fear" will have a six-episode run in season 1, and AMC has already given it the green light for a second season.
Speaking of the Walking Dead, season 6 is just around the corner and AMC wants to get us excited for another round of adventures with Rick and the gang. Here's a preview of what you can expect. The Walking Dead returns on Sunday October 11th, can't wait! That's what's happening, Inside The Box. Take care.
I'm Katherine Curtis. In the news today, if there was any doubt about the popularity of the Apple watch, think again. Best Buy is TRIPLING the number of its stores selling the Apple Watch after a surge in demand. They were originally only going to sell it in 300 stores by Christmas but that has now been expanded to ALL of their 1050 big box stores. Apple has so far refused to provide sales numbers for the high-tech gadget since its launch in April, leading many analysts to guess that it had FLOPPED.
Good news for all you travelers out there: faster internet on flights is coming. The US Federal Aviation Authority has approved a proposal to increase Wi-fi speeds on planes by up to 20 times what they are now. Gogo, the company behind the inflight service, expects to have 500 planes across 7 airlines up and running by the end of 2016.
And watch out Siri, you've got competition! Facebook is coming out with its own virtual assistant named “M”. The feature is tucked into Facebook's Messenger app and is currently being tested by users in the Bay Area to start. Unlike Apple's Siri, M is text-based only and is powered by a mix of artificial intelligence and real-life staff. The service will help users make reservations, order flowers or even connect them to customer service hotlines. You can expect to see M on YOUR Facebook in the next few months. If I can't afford a REAL personal assistant Isabella, at least I can have robots doing my bidding!
See you later Kat. She'll be back with more headlines a little later. Now for a look ahead to this weeks Naked Weather Forecast, let's say hello to Natasha Olenski. What do you have for us, Nat?
Isabella, tens of thousands of people are making their way the Burning Man Festival in Nevada right now. It starts on Sunday and I'll have a look at the notorious arts festival and some of its offshoots that happen around the world. Watch for it coming up.
Will do, thanks Nat. Okay, up next Angie Heyward, is going to present our Boob of the Week, and THIS one is going to be a contender for Boob of the YEAR.
Isabella, every year, a new crop of rookies are signed to the NFL. They’re young, newly rich, and thrust into a whole new world of celebrity. The league offers some support to these young men. There’s an annual symposium, where rookies are given advice on subjects like financial planning, drug and gun awareness, and how to use your friends to take the rap for you when you do something stupid or illegal. Wait WHAT was that last one?
Yeah, it turns out that last year, Hall of Famer Cris Carter gave a talk to rookies, where he told them that they had to have a “fall guy” in their crew. That if a player’s “homeboys” wanted to “keep rolling” with him, one of them had to be prepared to go to jail, to keep the player out of trouble.
After the video went viral the NFL released a statement disapproving of Carter’s comments, even though that video has been on their website for MONTHS. Carter’s current employer, ESPN, also distanced itself from the comments, and Carter himself has apologized. But is an apology enough? It wasn’t a slip of the tongue or a misunderstanding. It was instructing players to have a plan to evade responsibility for their actions.
And in light of Ray Rice, Michael Vick, Adrian Peterson, Sheldon Richardson, and the umpteen other NFLers who’ve found themselves in legal trouble, clearly what NFLers NEED is instruction on OBEYING THE LAW. Or, considering SIXTEEN percent of former NFLers declare bankruptcy after retiring, maybe suggesting they SAVE money instead of NEEDING that "crew" of fall guys on the payroll.
But what CRIS CARTER needs is just what we’re giving him: infamy as our Boob of the Week. For Naked News, I'm Angie Heyward.
This weekend, tens of thousands of free-spirited "Burners" will trek to the Nevada desert for the Burning Man festival, and I'll be guiding you through the experience in THIS edition of my Naked Weather forecast. First let's get to our Brainstorm Trivia.
Every year, Burning Man attendees are witness to a particular type of TORNADO. Do you know what type, and why? Stick around for the answer.
And now to the forecasts! According to Burning Man lore, the first edition of the party was in 1986, when a mere TWENTY people witnessed two friends set fire to an eight-foot wooden figure on Baker Beach in San Francisco. THIS year's event is expected to draw seventy THOUSAND people to the Black Rock Desert, where they'll express themselves through art in every possible form - and then watch a MASSIVE man burn. Burners can look forward to a dry, mostly sunny weekend with a high of 84 (29C)
There are a NUMBER of sanctioned Burning Man events beyond the original. Afrikaburn, in Tankwa Karoo, South Africa, celebrated its ninth year in April, with nearly ten thousand participants. This event traditionally has a "clan" of sculptures rather than the individual single burning "man". The clan represents the concept of community and unity - though it still gets burned to close out the festival! Locals will experience a cloudy, cool weekend, with rain and a high of 68 (20C)
One of the newest regional versions, Midburn, takes place in Israel's Negev Desert, near the Sde Boker kibbutz. This May was just the second edition, but over six thousand people took part. Like all Burning Man events, Midburn encourages "radical self expression", and participants created spectacular art installations, costumes, and performances. Sde Boker will be sunny all weekend, with the mercury hitting 94 (34C)
While not an official Burning Man event, Russia's Archstoyanie festival in Kaluga definitely honors its spirit. Since 2006, artists from around the country have gathered to build installations out of natural materials. The sculptures resemble towers, open buildings, and even ships. While some ARE ceremoniously burned, others are left behind to become part of the environment. Kaluga has a grey weekend ahead, with a mix of sun, cloud, and rain, and a high of 70 (21C)
Now for the answer to our Brainstorm Trivia question! When the massive Man is set on fire to close out the festival, the sudden heat causes a strong updraft, which spins violently into FIRE TORNADOES! They're technically dust devils, but the smoke, sand, and reflected flames make them spectacular.
That'll do it for my Naked Weather Forecast. For Naked News, I'm Natasha Olenski!
Amazon has launched a new service that could see booze delivered to your door in 60 minutes or less! Amazon's new "Prime Now" service will see thousands of items - from Kindle's to paper towels, ice cream to wine and alcohol - available for delivery within an hour. For the time being, it's only available to Amazon Prime members in the Seattle area. But the online retailer says they'll evaluate consumer response and consider bringing it to other cities.
Google has launched its long-awaited new site dedicated to video games. YouTube Gaming is a blend of thousands of games and live streams, offering specific channels for 25-thousand titles. It's designed to compete directly with Twitch, the gaming channel bought by Amazon last year for 970 million dollars. Twitch should be a bit nervous because early reviews for Google's new service have been positive. Many are calling it a better version of Twitch.
Also in the gaming arena, the once mighty ROVIO, the maker of the uber-popular Angry Birds franchise, is cutting nearly 40-percent of its work force. About 260 people are being laid off. This is actually the company's SECOND round of layoffs in the past year. Rovio says its cutting back to focus on what it does best: making games. The company has expanded wildly in the past few years, opening Angry Birds themed amusement parks, books, and online and TV cartoon series. Whether Rovio can rebound remains to be seen. In late July they released Angry Birds 2, a free title offering in-app purchases that the company says was downloaded 50 million times in its first month. From the Naked Newsroom, I'm Katherine Curtis.
I always knew Angry Birds had a shelf life, guess that proves it. Thanks to Kat Curtis for the stories. As we all know, music is the soundtrack of our lives and Carli Bei is standing by to TURN IT UP even louder!
I know this first story is going to CRUSH many of the men in our audience, I'm just hoping you're sitting down for it. British boyband "One Direction" is breaking up, TEMPORARILY! The four members announced they'll be taking at least a YEAR off to focus on solo projects, and probably to count all their cash! The band will still release their fifth album next year, but they WON'T be touring in support of it. The big question is, will the break be permanent? The boys have expressed interest in continuing, but 12 months is like, what, 12 YEARS in boyband life?
Kayne West has been tapped for the 2015 Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Mr. Kim Kardashian will pick up the honor at the MTV Music Awards on Sunday. The Vanguard award is considered MTV's highest accolade and previous recipients include Guns n' Roses, Beastie Boys and Beyonce. There is already a campaign to have TAYLOR SWIFT present Kayne with the statue. Although you have to wonder if Kayne would let her finish the introduction!
Johnny Depp is forming a rock supergroup with a who's who of music legends! Alice Cooper, Aerosmith's Joe Perry, Guns n' Roses Duff McKagan and Matt Sorum have all signed on to play with Depp in the band called Hollywood Vampires. The band's self-titled debut drops September 11th and will feature additional performances from Paul McCartney, Perry Ferrell and Dave Grohl. You can catch their first gig on September 16th at the Roxy in – where else? Hollywood.
The Beatles' first recording contract is up for grabs. The six-page document was signed by THREE of the Beatles plus former drummer Pete Best. It dates back to 1961, aka pre-Ringo, when the quartet recorded a German single with Tony Sheridan under the name “The BEAT Brothers”. Heritage Auctions in New York is auctioning off the contract on September 19th and hope to get at least 150 THOUSAND for it!
Last but not least, Jimi Hendrix's historic performance at the 1970 Atlanta Pop Festival is the subject of a new documentary coming to Showtime. “Jimi Hendrix: Electric Church” will feature interviews with his bandmates, as well as Paul McCartney, Steve Winwood and Kirk Hammett. Here's a sneak peek. An estimated 300 THOUSAND people witnessed the rock legend play that day. For those of us who couldn't be there, Jimi's 16-song set is being released as a 2-disc CD called Freedom: Atlanta Pop Festival. You can pick it up starting August 28th and catch the doc on Showtime September 4th. TURNING IT UP, for Naked News, I'm Carli Bei!
