Disney’s streaming service will include a cooking show called ‘Be Our Chef’ starring Angela Kinsey

angela-kinsey-to-tell-the-truth.jpg

As part of its plan to build a Netflix-esque streaming platform, Disney is producing a new cooking competition show that will feature families participating in food challenges at Walt Disney World. The new series, dubbed Be Our Chef, will land on Disney Plus during the first year of the service, which kicks off on November 12.

Hosted by Angela Kinsey, the actor who played Angela on The Office, the series will feature “families from diverse backgrounds” cooking in a competition that’s “positive and playful in tone,” according to a press release. Each episode will feature two families cooking dishes based on their own traditions and “the magic of Disney.” At the end of the competition, the finalists will be asked to “create a dish that represents their family through a Disney lens.”

While shows like Top Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, and the Great British Baking Show are perennially popular, the TV landscape is littered with competition series that never took off, including the Great American Baking Show, a program produced by Disney-owned network ABC. That series was plagued by casting and concept changes since its inception, and the sexual misconduct allegations against judge Johnny Iuzzini resulted in most of Season 3 getting pulled from the air. The streaming platform might be a better place for a new cooking competition, but at the end of the day, the success of Be Our Chef will likely depend on whether or not the producers can nail the format and/or offer something new to stand out from the rest of the pack.

In other Disney Plus news, the streaming platform will include a new nature show called Earthkeepers produced by Chef’s Table creator David Gelb and his frequent collaborator Brian McGinn, as well as a new series called The World According to Jeff Goldblum, where the Hollywood actor will explore various subjects of interest including, occasionally, food. And the service will also have a limited series called Forky Asks a Question, a new animated explainer show starring the spork character from the forthcoming movie Toy Story 4. Apparently, in one episode Forky will learn all about cheese.

These titles will join all the Star Wars movies, every Simpsons episode, the entirety of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Disney classics from the vault, and a slew of new TV series and feature films. The service will cost subscribers $6.99 per month.

Angela to star in ‘Tall Girl’ on Netflix

Newcomer Ava Michelle has been cast in the high school comedy that Nzingha Stewart is directing.

After what it described as a worldwide casting call, Netflix has selected newcomer Ava Michelle for the title role of its comedy Tall Girl, which has begun production in New Orleans. Michelle, a 6-foot-1-inch-tall actress, dancer and model, will make her feature-film debut in the role of Jodie, a 16-year-old who is the tallest girl in her high school.

“It was essential for us to find an actor to portray our lead who can speak to the challenges and lessons that Jodi experiences from a very personal place of authenticity,” Nzingha Stewart, the film’s director, said in a statement. “Ava’s ability to beautifully and uniquely showcase those attributes stood out to us in a way that we believe audiences will connect with. Tall Girl showcases that embracing the very qualities that make you different is what allows you to overcome anything.”

The film also stars Griffin Gluck (American Vandal) as Jack Dunkleman, Jodi’s best friend; Luke Eisner (The Goldbergs) as Stig, a handsome and equally tall Swedish foreign exchange student; Sabrina Carpenter (The Hate U Give) as Harper, Jodi’s older sister; and Paris Berelc (Alexa & Katie) as Liz, the unconventional best friend of Jodi’s bully.

Rounding out the cast are Steve Zahn (Valley of the Boom) as Richie Kreyman, Jodi’s manic and anxious dad, and Angela Kinsey (Haters Back Off!) as Helaine Kreyman, Jodi’s former pageant-queen mom.

Additional castmembers include Anjelika Washington (DC Universe’s Stargirl) as Fareeda, Jodi’s best friend; Clara Wilsey as Kimmy, the most popular girl at school and Jodi’s nemesis; and Rico Paris as Schnipper, a popular jerk and one of Jodi’s regular tormentors.

Directed by Stewart, who is repped by Paradigm and Management 360, and written by Sam Wolfson, the film is Netflix’s fourth collaboration with Wonderland’s McG and Mary Viola. Wonderland’s Corey L. Marsh serves as a producer.

Terror in the Woods

Catch Angela tonight in Lifetime’s Terror in the Woods!

About: 

Inspired by true events, Rachel (Ella West Jerrier) and Kaitlyn (Sophie Grace) are two quiet, shy 12-year-old best friends in small-town Georgia. Like many 12 year-olds, they liked having sleepovers and spent much of their time on the internet often looking up scary stories. Their favorite internet spooky story is that of the Suzerain, a clawed monster who lures children to his palace in the forest. To their parents, it seemed like a harmless ghost story, but in reality, the girls believed the Suzerain was real and that he would hurt their families unless they did what he told them to, which was perform a blood sacrifice. Together, they settle on their friend Emily (Skylar Morgan Jones) as their target, stabbing her with a pair of scissors. Miraculously, Emily survives the brutal attack, and Rachel and Kaitlyn are picked up by the police. As the investigation begins, bigger questions about use of the internet and the state of the girls mental health come to the forefront. Had Kaitlyn’s parents Dani (Angela Kinsey, “The Office”) and Nathan (Drew Powell, “Gotham”), and Rachel’s mom Jackie (Carrie Hood, “Devious Maids”), been aware of the extent of the girls fascination with the Suzerain? Should the ultimate blame be placed on the dark side of the internet or the deeper issue of mental health? Or was there nothing that could stop the hold that Suzerain had over Rachel and Kaitlyn.

‘The Office’ gets the pop-up bar treatment in Lincoln Park

image

You’ll think you’ve departed Chicago and arrived in Scranton, Pennsylvania, when you walk into Replay Lincoln Park’s new The Office pop-up bar, which officially opened its doors over the weekend. A section of the arcade bar received a 9-to-5 makeover, recreating desks belonging to Jim Halpert and Dwight Schrute, complete with desktop computers, Post-It notes and Froggy 101 bumper stickers (we didn’t check to see if there’s a stapler submerged in Jell-O in Dwight’s drawer).

Throughout the pop-up, you’ll find cardboard cut-outs of your favorite characters and walls peppered with references to specific episodes from the long-running series, including Michael Scott’s $340 check to science, an “It is your birthday” banner and Pam’s painting of the Dunder Mifflin office park. At the bar, you can order drinks inspired by the series, such as the One of Everything, featuring equal parts Scotch, absinthe, rum, gin, vermouth, triple sec and two packs of Splenda.

Replay’s The Office pop-up will be open for business through August 20, so stop by and put all of those Michael Scott quotes you’ve memorized to good use.

The Office: 25 Behind-The-Scenes Photos That Completely Change The Show

The cast of “The Office” was extremely close on the set of the iconic series, and it really shows in these adorable behind-the-scenes photos.

The-Office-BTS-Photos-Cast-Andy-Bernard-e1530721417884

The Office tops many TV viewers’ list of best… well, everything. Best onscreen relationship? For a lot of people, that’s Jim and Pam. Or, alternatively, Michael Scott and Holly Flax. Best main character? Michael Scott is often considered the heart and soul of the show. Best writers room? Again, with BJ Novak and Mindy Kaling in tow, The Officefrequently lands in the top spot of that list.

So, naturally, it just makes sense that basically every single behind-the-scenes photo taken of this iconic cast is completely heartwarming.

Even though they were well-loved by viewers, the characters featured throughout the series were often undeniably terrible people. They were selfish, awkward, and frequently made immoral choices that hurt those around them. It’s kind of hard trying to imagine sitting next to them for eight hours at a time.

Fortunately, the actors behind these characters weren’t like this at all. Much of the cast is still incredibly close years after the series’ end. They built strong friendships that are evident in their joyful set photos.

The entire crew is constantly shown smiling and laughing in each other’s presence. Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer’s beautiful friendship is well documented, and Steve Carell’s serious work ethic is on full display.

With that said, here are the 25 Behind-The-Scenes Photos That Completely ChangeThe Office.

Angela discusses cats, an ‘Office’ reboot and pizza at UMD

Angela Kinsey knows about Pizza Kingdom.

When The Office star showed up in College Park the night before her Student Entertainment Event’s lecture, she was hungry. On her way to the parlor known for giant late-night slices, a rowdy group from the bar pointed her to Lotsa. Although her food search ended in trail mix at the hotel, at least one student snapped a photo with the 5″1′ actress known for playing the uptight, cat-loving, party-planner Angela Martin.

On March 1, Kinsey relived one of the happiest parts of her career as she spoke to a sold-out Grand Ballroom. And no, she’s not tired of talking about it.

“It makes me really proud that something we did all those years ago is still resonating with people,” she said before the show.

Angela to co-star in Justin Noble’s ABC comedy pilot

From Deadline.com:

The Office alumna Angela Kinsey is set for a lead role opposite Kat Dennings in ABC’s untitled Justin Noble comedy pilot.

Written by Noble and directed by Will Gluck, the untitled project is based on the book and blog How May We Hate You? The workplace ensemble comedy centers on two guest-services associates at a high-end resort and the co-workers and guests they’re stuck with for eight to 16 hours a day.

Kinsey will play Dana. A kind hotel employee, Dana has the worst luck of all time. If something bad can happen, it has probably already happened to Dana. Nevertheless, she tries to keep her head up.

The single-camera comedy hails from Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer-producer Noble, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment, Wendi Trilling’s TrillTV, CBS TV Studios and ABC Studios.

Known for her role as Angela on all nine seasons of hit comedy The Office, Kinsey most recently was a series regular on Netflix’s Haters Back Off. She can currently be seen in Heather Graham’s feature Half Magic. She’s repped by UTA, LINK Entertainment and Felker, Toczek, Suddleson, Abramson. – Source
