George Clooney has signed on to direct Showtime’s new political series called TheDepartment.
The new thriller will be based on the French series Le Bureau des Legendes and will start production later this year.
The CEO of Showtime said about the series, “Just as Homelandelevated global espionage to new heights, The Department will take viewers even deeper into a world of intrigue and subterfuge with complicated characters who struggle with their own demons as they fight existential threats to the nation and the world.”
The 65th Grammy Awards ended in chaos as Harry Styles won the top accolade.
The British pop artist beat Beyonce, who was expected to win Album of the Year for Renaissance.
Accepting the Album of the Year award, Styles said that “there was no such thing as best” and that he had been inspired by all the other artists in the category.
It didn’t go unnoticed that Beyoncé lost to the British artists after losing in 2017 to Adele for her album 25. One audience member shouted that “Beyoncé should’ve won,” but the singer made history by becoming the most Grammy-winning of all time with 32 wins.

Bad Bunny Kicks Off Grammy Awards With Lively Puerto Rico Tribute
The reggaeton/Latin trap sensation Bad Bunny is the first artist to perform in Spanish and be nominated for album of the year.
He performed an upbeat set that included songs from his number-one album “Un Verano Sin Ti” to kick off this year’s Grammy awards.
The artist’s medley began with “El Apagón” (“The Blackout”), a passionate love letter to his native Puerto Rico. The lyrics of the song make reference to the ongoing problems with the island’s electricity grid left behind by Hurricane Maria.
Bunny then launched into a party song with merengue and mambo influences called “Después de la Playa,” also performed by El Conejo Malo.
What did you think of Bad Bunny’s Grammy performance? Do you think he was the right artist to open the show?
Paramount+ has renewed 1923 for a second season, and Harrison Ford recently shared more about the series.
Ford said about understanding the family dynamics of this prequel series versus the other series, “I’ve got a working knowledge of it — I could be wrong, but I think I’ve got it pretty clear.”
He continued about how difficult these types of series can be for actors, “They don’t talk about it, they complain about it. I’m down with it, but it’s sometimes bloody cold.”
He added, “The reality of the thing is amazing, I mean, we’re out there with 1200 sheep, 800 head of cattle. … They’re really doing it. I mean, when we’re out there with the cows, we’re herding the cows, you know? The actors and the real cowboys.”
He also mentioned that he would be joining season 2 of 1923 and is excited about the season renewal.
Ford continued about why he joined the new Indiana Jonesmovie that is currently in the works and said, “I always wanted to do it. I wanted to do the rest of the story to see the end of his career.”
