HOTCHKA Daily News - May 31, 2022


★Is there more drama behind-the-scenes than there will be on screen? Leslie Mann and Tim Robbins have left Amazon's upcoming series The Power. Mann had been cast as lead Margot Cleary-Lopez in October 2019 opposite Rainn Wilson as Daniel Dandon. After months of delay due to COVID shutdowns, Wilson became unavailable and was recast with Robbins in January 2021, and the role was reduced to a recurring character. Both roles will now be re-cast and their scenes will be re-shot. The 10-episode series is based on the feminist sci-fi book by Naomi Alderman.

★Kate Bush's 1985 single 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)', from the Hounds of Love album, has hit Number 1 on iTunes after being featured in a Season 4 episode of Stranger Things. The song is Number 2 on Spotify's US charts and Number 4 globally, having seen an 8700% increase in global streams on Monday, compared to its total on Thursday, the day before the first part of the season dropped. In the US, streams increased by 9900%. The single's surge will also be reflected in next week's Billboard charts.

★Kaley Cuoco is not sure if there will, or should, be a third season of The Flight Attendant, stating that it would be very hard to make it better than the previous two. While the door is always open for more, the Season 2 finale also functions as closure, with Cuoco saying "for me the plane has landed."
