Bentley to blitz area for book
Former Buffalo Bills player Ray Bentley will make multiple area appearances here this weekend in conjunction with the release of his debut fiction novel, “Driftwood.”
Bentley will sign books and be part of a Bills roundtable from 1 to 4 p.m. Dec. 19 at Nice Ash Cigars & Lounge, 5334 Transit Road, Depew. Also Dec. 19, from noon to 2:30 p.m., he will be at Dave and Adam’s Card World, 8075 Sheridan Drive, Williamsville.
He will then sign books and host a Bills watch part from noon to 2:30 p.m. Dec. 20. Bentley, who was a linebacker with the Bills from 1986-91, previously wrote children’s books featuring Darby the Dinosaur.
New deal for ‘House of Cards’
“House of Cards” returns March 4, which means the tune-in campaign begins … oh, right about now, or Tuesday night, in the middle of the GOP debate when Netflix released this clever little tease in advance of the fourth season.
The tag is “FU 2016.”
That’s “Francis Underwood,” by the way, who’s running an election campaign, and he promises in this tease – which looks like any of the thousands of campaign teases we’ve been snowed under over the years – that “I’m only getting started.”
Which means naturally that the fourth season will be filled with even more murderous subterfuge – and murder.
Last time we saw Francis (Kevin Spacey), he wasn’t quite in command as much as he is as seen here: Claire (Robin Wright) had just left him, presumably for good. Their marriage is on the rocks, but at least FU had a good showing in Iowa!
Oh, and Doug Stamper (Michael Kelly) – FU consigliere and back to his own murderous ways? Remarkably, he doesn’t appear in the campaign commercial. Nor, you will note, does Frank’s most valuable asset: Claire Underwood.
subhed goes here
If you think the 2016 race for the White House is a circus worthy of a reality TV program, Showtime is right there with you.
The premium cable network announced Tuesday that it is launching a weekly documentary-style series called “The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth,” which will go behind the scenes of the campaign. The series will be produced by Left/Right, a company that specializes in unscripted TV shows.
According to a statement from Showtime, “‘The Circus’ will follow multiple individual stories and key characters from the campaigns and capture their unique perspectives in weekly half-hour shows between January and November.”
