Down And Nerdy Podcast

Aug 13, 2021

Maybe our most packed show ever!  We'll start off by jumping into the ring with the new Starz series, Heels!  Joining us to talk about the series are Michael Waldron (Exec. Producer/Creator), Mike O'Malley (Showrunner), Alison Luff (Staci Spade) and Kelli Berglund (Crystal Tyler).  They'll talk about the show's roots in pro wrestling, the family drama behind it and how the women are very much at center stage in this story as well.  WATCH HEELS BEGINNING SUNDAY AT 9PM ON STARZ!

Next we turn our attention to hitting the big time with the Netflix limited series, Brand New Cherry Flavor.  Hear from Nick Antosca and Lenore Zion (Exec. Producers, Writers, Showrunners) about adapting this mind bending story, why Rosa Salazar was perfect as Lisa Nova and what is up with those kittens!  WATCH BRAND NEW CHERRY FLAVOR, NOW STREAMING ON NETFLIX!

We also have a few laughs this week talking about Awkwafina Is Nora From Queens ahead of the Season 2 premiere on Comedy Central.  BD Wong (Wally) and Teresa Hsiao (Co-Creator, Showrunner) about what changes are ahead for Season 2, if we'll see more from Wally and Brenda, what it's like working with the amazing Lori Tann Chin and much more!  SEASON 2 OF AWKWAFINA IS NORA FROM QUEENS PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 18TH ON COMEDY CENTRAL!

That's not all!  We're breaking from our traditional format to offer you some of the biggest and best reviews of the week.  Hear our thoughts on Marvel's What If?, the Season 2 premiere of DC's Stargirl, the Season 3 premiere of Titans and even the animated Batman: The Long Halloween Part 2 movie.  Consider this week our own summer blockbuster!
