This morning on the TODAY show, I preview some movie and tv shows that some of you might be interested in watching this August. Think of it as an August Preview. My wife liked many of what’s on this list, specially Fun Mom Dinner. I once again enjoy the new format they’re using when doing these monthly or weekend segments – sofa seats and a 200 inch TV screen! Feels like you’re hanging with friends in living room watching movies. Below is a transcript of what I said on the show…
These segments are my absolute favorites because of how informative they are. It takes me a full day of focus to research all the items, which are usually about 10, to digest and put them into succinct words ready for television. I was very happy to be able to review the biggest and buzziest film of the year – Wonder Woman along with recommending several other other movies, music albums and TV shows for you to see and listen to this June. Please, click on the video and see what catches your eye!
On March 24, Netflix will launch the first season of the anticipated Mexican original series, Ingobernable. The thriller and drama series will debut at 12am and feature a total of 15 episodes that will tell the story of a Mexican Presidential family and how in a matter of seconds everything can change. Kate del Castillo (Emilia Urquiza) and Erik Hayser (Diego Nava) portray the First Lady and President of Mexico. Emilia Urquiza, is the First Lady of Mexico with big plans to improve conditions for the country through her commitment to fighting for peace. As Emilia starts to lose faith in her husband, President Diego Nava, she finds herself at a crossroad where she will need to find a way to deal with a great challenge and uncover the truth. Emilia is a woman with a strong personality, conviction and clear ideas that make her capable of doing anything: making a president, leaving a president and killing a president.Read More
This morning’s segment felt as if Kathie Lee, Hoda and I had an off-camera conversation that happened to be caught-on-camera. They have an incredible ability to make an interview feel like a nice chat. I usually prepare, research, read many articles for the segment, but as soon as Hoda asks you the first question, you can’t help but feel as if they are very close friends of yours who you went to lunch with. Time flies by when you are with them. Enjoy the segment.
Who would make a better President? Frank Underwood or Donald Trump? Season 5 of House of Cards will never be more timely and reflective of the current political landscape. With Donald Trump now officially in office, Kevin Spacey’s fictional character of President Frank Underwood will be a eerie example of life imitating art. Check out the trailer and tell me your eyes didn’t pop wide open.Read More
The first Monday of 2017 and I got the chance to be on the same show Katie Couric co-hosted. Alas, I didn’t get a chance to see her, but awesome to know I was feet away from her. This is also my second New Year’s Day segment in a row. Last year we pre-taped, but this morning was live. I discussed the ‘Most Anticipated Movies and TV Shows of 2017’. Check out above my personal picks for this year!
Of all the segments I have done for the TODAY show in the last 3 years, this was by far the most challenging and visually dynamic one I’ve done. The concept is simple: discuss three cultural topics, under 5 munutes, on three stages with three hosts. It sounds like an obstacle course, right? Lol. From what I was told, these types of segments have been done before but with THREE contributors. The fact that TODAY producers allowed me to do all three means they have tremendous trust in me which I highly appreciate them for it. Also, I found out it was the first time they were testing out the new format so whatever you see here has never been done before on their show. I’m very fortunate to have had the opportunity and for actually pulling it off!
