In the television industry, the show must always go on.

The trusty iPhone, of course.

After a few hours of handwringing, the crew decided to use limited lighting and a number of Plus-model iPhones.

According to Apple Insider, the stunt may represent one of the first times a major TV show has been shot on iPhones without it being an intentional gimmick.

For years, Apple has touted its video-recording quality as one of its winningest features on its iPhones.

The iPhone 6s Plus has the capacity to shoot in 4K resolution with optical image stabilization.

Medium has a new head of product, while the startup behind the defunct texting app Talkshow appears to be done for good.

Talkshow Industries was led by Michael Sippey, who’d spent two years as vice president of product at Twitter.

The company’s first product was the Talkshow app, which allowed you to follow other users’ text message conversations.

The app was shut down at the end of 2016 (“We don’t see it getting big enough to have the impact we had hoped for,” the company said at the time), but in a new Medium post, Sippey writes that Talkshow Industries didn’t close its doors — it was working on a new podcast product called Episode.

As part of the testing process, Sippey says he started talking to Medium CEO Ev Williams (who previously co-founded and served as CEO at Twitter), which in turn led to a conversation “about where Medium is headed, and how I could help.”

Now Medium has acquired Talkshow Industries.

Carol Burnett talking about important life issues with young kids is bound to be comedy gold for Netflix.

Legendary comedian Carol Burnett is returning to television, with plans to star in a new child-oriented talk show for Netflix called A Little Help With Carol Burnett, reports Variety.

The comedy is unscripted, filmed in front of a live studio audience, and will feature Burnett, along with other celebrity guests, chatting with kids ranging from age 4 to 8 about real-life issues.

As we can expect, the conversations are bound to be both funny and honest.

Each episode will run for 30 minutes, and Netflix has ordered a total of 12.

Burnett says she feels like a kid inside, “so it’s going to be a lot of fun playing with kids my age,” she joked.

Enlarge / Gosh, I love that planet pin.

Bill Nye's social capital has been on the rise in recent years, as he has transitioned from a kid-friendly science show host to a no-nonsense defender of hard science and bow ties .

His polite aggression has appeared on talk shows, lecture halls, and comedy series, but none of his enjoyable bluster has come in his own series in some time.

Netflix has announced plans to change that with the introduction of Bill Nye Saves the World, a new Netflix-exclusive talk show series launching in spring 2017.

In a Wednesday press release, Netflix described the show's aspirations to "refute anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders, or titans of industry"—so the show is clearly aiming to maintain the junk-science battle that Nye has loudly fought in recent years.

Like his '90s TV series, the new Netflix show looks like it will provide equal parts comedy and hard science, as head writers have been hired for those elements with comedian Mike Drucker and astronomer Phil Plait filling those respective roles .

Every few weeks, talk show host Conan O Brien invites celebrities to his set to rip apart new video games in his Clueless Gamer segment.

We ve gotten to the point where video game companies are sending us their new product for us to play and make fun of because it s been such a huge success.

We re going to go into production on a series of that.

The segment has seen the likes of actors Elijah Wood, Terry Crews as well as Game of Thrones Peter Dinklage and Lena Headley join Conan in artfully reviewing titles like Overwatch, Final Fantasy XV and Battlefield 1.

Water-cooler talk about the hottest shows on TV isn t a new concept.

But in a day and age when social media is replacing the water cooler and the talk consists of hashtags, an interesting trend is emerging.

Inspired by Bravo s late night talk show , hosted by Andy Cohen, AMC led the charge toward this trend for the primetime drama genre.

In 2011, the network commissioned self-professed geek and CEO of Nerdist Enterprises Chris Hardwick and aired an hour-long talk show called Talking Dead immediately following episodes in the second season of The Walking Dead.

Seeing how committed fans became a light bulb moment: There s so much work that goes on behind the scenes of such an elaborately-produced show and so many theories floating around, why not create a talk show where super fans, cast, and crew can express their thoughts, and viewers can weigh in?

That was followed up by another edition of Talking Dead, which airs after The Walking Dead spin-off Fear the Walking Dead; then Talking Saul to follow Better Call Saul Breaking Bad s spinoff .

For those looking for signs of an impending apocalypse, Barstool Sports is coming to ESPN.

The Chernin Group-owned digital publisher, beloved by frat houses across the country, has signed a deal with ESPN for a weekly late-night talk show called “Barstool Van Talk.” At a time when big digital publishers are pursuing linear TV deals, with only a few having launched shows on the air so far, Barstool can now boast of having done two cable TV shows in 2017, including a Super Bowl-themed late-night program for Comedy Central earlier this year.

The ESPN link-up is also a high-profile deal for Barstool, which has a smaller but highly loyal audience of self-described “stoolies.”

A half-hour show, “Barstool Rundown” will be hosted by popular Barstool personalities Dan Katz (known as “Big Cat”) and the anonymous PFT Commenter inside of a conversion van.

“Plus, Barstool started because Dave [Portnoy] started handing out papers in an Astro van in Boston.”

“Barstool Van Talk” is the company’s second cable TV show this year.

If you're writing a book or planning to write one, prepare yourself for doing the publicity it will take to help make it a success.

Unless you're a talk-show host with promotional opportunities and an existing audience or a social media influencer with hundreds of thousands of followers, you'll need a marketing campaign.

As book publicists know, meeting the competition requires a wall-rounded program and one that includes blogs.

Blogs span an infinite variety of topics and interests, making them ideal for book and author promotion; here's why: Niche audiences with a keen interest in a subject will buy books.Most people who follow blogs are loyal and read posts routinely.

They have trusted relationships with their readers and understand the content that will generate new or further interest.

Readers trust and value the blogger's opinions and become curious when something is mentioned, including newly released books.Word-of-mouth recommendations are some of the most potent forms of promotion, and the mentions you receive on a blog are virtual versions of them.
