Amy Schumer Sets Second Netflix Comedy Special

Amy Schumer is headed back to Netflix.

The comedian will star in her second stand-up special for the streamer, Amy Schumer Growing, which is set for release March 19. Schumer announced the special Tuesday on her Instagram.

Growing will be Schumer's first special since her February 2018 marriage to chef Chris Fischer. The show will feature her riffing on marriage, pregnancy — Schumer announced in October that she and Fischer are expecting their first child — the joys of womanhood and, of course, sex.

Schumer filmed the special in December in Chicago, about a month after she had to cancel some tour dates when she was hospitalized with hyperemesis, a pregnancy complication characterized by extreme nausea.

Netflix criticized for Bird Box using actual train-wreck footage

Netflix criticized for Bird Box using actual train-wreck footage Netflix slammed for Bird Box using real-life disaster footage Bird Box is provoking some controversy again. This time it’s for the Netflix hit movie using real-life footage of Canada’s Lac-Mégantic rail tragedy, which killed more than 40 people in 2013. The footage is used early in the film to help depict the world descending into apocalyptic chaos. The footage also recently showed up in another Netflix production, the Canadian-American science fiction show Travelers.

Schumer is coming off the 2018 film I Feel Pretty. She also executive produces the Amy Schumer Presents series of stand-up specials for Comedy Central, which was also home to three seasons of her sketch show, Inside Amy Schumer.

The latter show is in a state of semipermanent limbo at the cabler. The show's fourth season concluded in June 2016 and was renewed for a fifth that month. Schumer insisted later that year the show wasn't canceled, but there's been no movement on it since then.

Schumer: Trump 'did the right thing' leaving Kim talks.
Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) offered rare praise to President Trump on Thursday after Trump walked away from negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. "President Trump did the right thing by walking away and not cutting a poor deal for the sake of a photo op," Schumer said on the Senate floor on Wednesday. "Just like the president, I want a deal with North Korea that would bring an end to the co nflict and change the course of the region," he added. Schumer urged Trump to be equally willing to walk away from trade negotiations with China if the U.S. cannot secure a favorable agreement.
