Kaley is gecast als Doris Day in de nieuwe gelimiteerde serie voor Warners Bros genaamd “Doris Day: Her Own Story. De serie is gebaseerd om de biografie die Hotchner in 1976 over de zangeres en actrice die vanaf de jaren 40 bekend werd aan de hand van interviews die Doris had gegeven. Actrice Doris Day verscheen o.a. in de Alfred Hitchcock film “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” in waarin ze het nummer “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be) zong. Hoogstwaarschijnlijk zullen we dus ook de zangkunsten van Kaley zien.

After their collective success with “The Flight Attendant,” Kaley Cuoco’s Yes, Norman Productions will again join forces with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television to develop the story of Doris Day as a limited series, having gotten the rights to A.E. Hotchner’s “Doris Day: Her Own Story.”

Hotchner wrote the 1976 biography based on a series of interviews with Day, and it’s considered to be her autobiography. Cuoco will play Day, the iconic actor, singer and animal rights activist. No network is currently attached to the project.

Day, who died at age 97 in 2019, started in show business as a singer, and made her film debut in the late 1940s in movie musicals. In the ’50s and ‘60s, she was a huge star and box office draw. Day showed her talents in such movies as “Calamity Jane” (1953); Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” in which she sang “Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be),” which became her signature song; “The Pajama Game” (1957); and “Pillow Talk” (1959) with Rock Hudson and Tony Randall, a successful combination of actors that repeated itself twice more. Day was famously seen as the “good girl,” with conservative tastes and politics reflected in her real life, and her image fell out of step with the times as the ’60s progressed.

Day married four times, and her third husband lost all of their money, leaving her in debt when he died in 1968. A new television career, which she was loathe to have, saved her from financial ruin. In the ‘70s, she turned to animal welfare causes, which reflect Cuoco’s interests as well: Cuoco is a competitive horse rider, and owner of many dogs, as she recently told Variety.

After 12 seasons on “The Big Bang Theory,” also produced by WBTV, Cuoco is on a run with the studio. She founded Yes, Norman in 2017, with an exclusive overall deal with WBTV. “The Flight Attendant,” the first live-action manifestation of that pact, was a success for HBO Max, and has been nominated for numerous awards by SAG, the PGA, the WGA, the HFPA, and more — both for the show and for Cuoco’s performance as Cassie. It will surely be an Emmys contender.

Executive producers for the untitled Doris Day project are Cuoco, and from Berlanti Productions, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter and David Madden. Co-executive producers are Suzanne McCormack from Yes, Norman and Bob Bashara, the trustee from the Doris Day Estate, with which the series will be working. Consulting producers are Jim Pierson, who worked with Day, and Tim Hotchner, her biographer’s son.

In a Variety cover story, Cuoco mentioned the Doris Day project as something she had set her sights on, but she and her partners hadn’t yet gotten the rights yet. Coming up for Cuoco and Yes, Norman are Season 3 of the delightfully filthy animated series “Harley Quinn” on HBO Max, in which she is an executive producer and voices the title character, as well as Season 2 of “The Flight Attendant,” for which the writers room will soon convene, and should begin production in September or October.

Nick is samen met o.a. Joe Jonas begin januari gecast in de nieuwe film ‘Devotion’, deze zal gaan over de Koreaanse oorlog. De film is gebasserd op het boek ‘Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship and Sacrifice’ door Adam Mkos.

Joe Jonas, Daren Kagasoff and Spencer Neville have joined the high-flying cast of Devotion, a Korean War drama from Black Label Media.

Nick Hargrove and Thomas Sadoski have also joined the call sheet for the feature. Jonathan Majors and Glen Powell star in the true story, which is due to begin shooting in February in Savannah, Georgia, with J.D. Dillard in the director’s chair.

Based on the best-selling book by Adam Makos, Devotion: An Epic Story of Heroism, Friendship and Sacrifice, the project tells of two U.S. Navy fighter pilots, Jesse Brown (Majors) and Tom Hudner (Powell), from different worlds. Per the official logline, they are initiated together into the VF-32 squadron and pushed to their limits, testing and flying a new design of fighter jet. But their friendship is tested when one of them is shot down behind enemy lines.

Jonas and Neville are playing members of the 32 squadron. Kagasoff is a squad member who knows Hudner from their younger years while Sadoski will play the squad’s head.

Jake Crane and Jonathan A. Stewart wrote the script, which has been revised by Dillard. Molly Smith, Rachel Smith, Thad Luckinbill and Trent Luckinbill are producing via Black Label Media.

Sony is distributing domestically while STX is handling international sales.

Jonas was one of the three brothers that made up the Jonas Brothers, a teen sensation pop act in the 2000s. While the singer has made a few appearances beyond music videos, including in the music-themed Disney Channel movie Camp Rock, Devotion may be his first dramatic outing. He is repped by UTA and Mannatt, Phelps & Phillips.

Kagasoff was one of the stars of The Secret Life of an American Teenager. He appeared in horror movie Ouija and recently starred in TV’s The Village. He is repped by Gersh and manager John Carrabino.

Neville is an up-and-comer who has appeared in TV shows such as Ozark and Good Trouble. He is repped by Pakula/King & Associates, 3Arts and Morris Yorn.

Sadoski appeared in two John Wick movies and is repped by UTA and Industry Entertainment.

In December, following the Thanksgiving holiday when lockdowns again became necessary because millions of people selfishly decided to ignore Covid-19 guidelines, the economy lost 140,000 jobs. On its own, that’s bad enough, but it’s not even close to the whole story. The truly shocking part is that women made up 100% of those job losses, losing a total of 156,000 jobs, while men gained 16,000 jobs that month. While women fared better than men in the January jobs report, 275,000 left the labor force that month.

These statistics are illustrative of just how severely this pandemic is affecting women. This why I support the Marshall Plan for Moms, which attempts to bring equity back to women and the labor force. Its most discussed feature — a short-term monthly payment to moms to compensate for the unpaid and often invisible labor we are doing — is so important, but it’s just a small part of what the plan will achieve.

Other fundamental tenets include passing policies that support working women such as pay equity, family leave and affordable childcare; retraining programs that will help women step into emerging jobs; and safely re-opening schools to take the childcare burden off mothers. By focusing on these issues, the plan will begin to address persistent structural disadvantages that take economic power and freedom from women and perpetuate a workforce that allows us to be underpaid and left out of positions of power and influence. When we can go back to the paid workforce, a Marshall Plan for Moms can make sure we can do it in a way that is equitable.
We all already know that the economy and jobs market are worse for women. As a whole, we are paid 82 cents for every dollar men make, according to a report from the American Association of University Women based on US Census Bureau and the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ data. It’s even worse for Black, Indigenous and women of color: According to the same report, Black women make just 63% of what white men make, and Latina women make just 55%. At the outset of the pandemic last spring, women were disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Our unemployment rate increased by 12.8% compared to 9.9% for men between February and April of 2020. Not only do we make less money when we are employed, it’s harder for us to get and keep jobs.
But to be clear, it’s not that women aren’t working; it’s that we are doing the critical and extremely difficult unpaid labor of motherhood. And for so many women during the pandemic, this is a forced career change, one they did not ask for and did not train for, but one which they undertook anyway.

Last September alone, four times as many women left the labor force as men, and twice as many women as men did so for childcare purposes. At home, we suddenly became teachers and full-time caregivers. We’re figuring out how to keep our kids engaged in their education and participating in schooling — often without any support. My kids are a few years apart in age — which means a big difference in how and what they are taught — and it’s often on us moms to figure out how to make that work. I’m very lucky that I have support and resources to do this, but I know countless women in America do not.
It’s not just education we’re managing, though. It’s the mental health of our kids who have been unable to see their friends and do the normal socializing and activities that are critical to their development. We’re managing households, figuring out how to get groceries safely and without the finances we had when we had paying jobs. We’re doing the domestic work of the home and doing it with a whole new level of care and attention because we don’t want one particle of the virus surviving in our households. We’re working so much more — and we’re not getting paid for it.

Look, I get that dedicating funds to compensate mothers might sound impossible. Covid-19 just gutted our economy. It has stripped the country down to its foundations and laid bare so much deep rot lurking inside its walls. But this is our chance for a remodel. We can fix the problems and rebuild the job market in a way that is better, safer, and more equitable for all.

The Marshall Plan for Moms is an important first step. There hasn’t been an opportunity like this to mold workforce practices since World War II, when millions of women entered the workplace for the first time. We failed women then by stripping the gains they made once the war ended. When men came back from the war, women left the workforce in droves and went back to working for free at home; the ones who remained in the workforce were often demoted. Generations later, women still have not achieved workplace equity. We can’t let that happen now. We need to get it right this time.
This pandemic has illustrated, once again, a core truth of our nation: the work of women is essential. It’s time we were paid like it.

Kaley was eerder deze week vanuit haar huis virtueel aanwezig op de 78th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Dit jaar was ze genomineerd als beste actrice voor haar rol in ‘The Flight Attendent’, helaas won ze niet. Een dag eerder werd ze wel verrast door haar man Karl die vanaf een paardenwedstrijd speciaal naar huis vloog om bij haar te zijn tijdens de uitreiking.
