TCB Debriefing 11/9/23: SAG-AFTRA Strike, Please Don’t Destroy, Coyote vs. Acme, Inside Out 2, Ms. Pat

1. TENTATIVELY (don’t mean to be a killjoy here), the SAG-AFTRA strike over, which would, TENTATIVELY, bring the historic double strike between the WGA and SAG-AFTRA to a close with both unions getting pretty much want they wanted. With that in mind, when all is said and done, let history remember that the AMPTP made both unions wait over a hundred days to agree to their demands.

2. Rather than waiting for Saturday night/Sunday morning for your next hit of Please Don’t Destroy, here’s the first 4 min. of PDD’s first feature length movie, The Treasure of Foggy Mountain.

3. One has to wonder if David Zaslav shelving a Wiley Coyote live action/animated hybrid movie (that has tested well in focus groups) as a tax write-off (Deadline) is him being a spoiled sport kicking rocks since the strike ending in the favor of the unions?

4. As much as Pixar movies have been boiled down to kind of a precise emotional science these days, one might ponder the choice for them to push forward with a sequel (considering people essentially know what they’re doing now). Yet, here we are with the trailer for Inside Out 2 with the introduction of Maya Hawke as Anxiety. Take a gander at the first teaser here, then look for it in theaters come June 2024.

5. Ms. Pat hosts a court show now, but don’t be surprised if she has a talk show in the not so distant future. Just watch her with the undeniable charm that an ex-drug dealer-turned-affable comedian that only she possesses on Seth Meyers.


6. We’ll leave you with this: Who is staying in town in LA for the holidays to do/see comedy/not leaving us hanging after the 3rd week of December?
