Discovery+ 2021 Winter TCA Press Tour Panel Interview: Magnolia Network & Chip & Joanna Gaines

Magnolia NetworkOn Thursday, it was announced that on July 15th Magnolia Network, a joint venture between Chip and Joanna Gaines and Discovery, Inc., will be launching on Discovery+ and the MAGNOLIA app with its full slate of original programming and will replace the Magnolia Network preview that is currently inside Discovery+. Both apps will offer unlimited access to its complete collection of programming and will be at no additional cost to Discovery+ subscribers. Magnolia will also include immersive content such as workshops, recipes, shoppable features, and more. The official launch of its linear TV home with the rebrand of DIY Network will be in January 2022.

Chip and Joanna Gaines, as well as president of Magnolia Network, Allison Page, participated in a Discovery+ TCA panel to talk about what’s to come for their immersive brand and original programming.

Joanna talked to SciFi Vision about the interactive part of Magnolia Network. “I think for us, we've been spending so much time on building this library of content.  I think one thing that we really felt like [has] always been important for us at Magnolia, is giving people the tools, the next steps to be able to say, ‘Hey, I'm inspired by that, but now I want to go do it.’

“So, the workshops are going to be that tangible tool where we're going to have people who really know their trade, whether that's design, cooking, painting, whatever it is, so that if you're wanting to kind of deep dive into some of these topics or subjects and learn more about it, you can almost be taught by the experts.

HBO/HBO Max 2021 Winter TCA Press Tour Panel Interview: Genera+ion

Genera+ionThe first three episodes of the new original series, Genera+ion, premieres on March 11th on HBO Max. Two episodes of the dramedy, which was created by Zelda and Daniel Barnz, who also serve as executive producers, will follow on March 25th, with another on April 1st. The rest of the season will come later in the year. Genera+ion is a 30-minute series that follows a group of diverse high school students and their exploration of their sexuality as they deal with what life brings them.

Stars Nathanya Alexander, Chloe East, Lusitania Maxwell, Haley Sanchez, Uly Schlesinger, Justice Smith, and Chase Sui Wonders, as well as Zelda, Daniel, and executive producer Ben Barnz, recently joined the HBO Max TCA panel to talk about the series with journalists.

Zelda and Daniel Barnz, who are also both writers on the show, talked about balancing the issues of race and sexuality through the eyes of multicultural characters.

According to Zelda, “We drew a lot of inspiration from authenticity and real-world influence when we were writing and creating the show.  I think if you're basing a show off something real and authentic, something that's real and authentic is intersectionality and people who identify across the gender and sexuality spectrum and with different races and different ethnicities.  So, I think it’s important to remember that they're not just people who are straight and gay; there's a whole spectrum and all those identities deserve to be represented.”

"For All Mankind: Time Capsule," a new augmented reality experience based on the Apple TV+ space drama, is available today in the App Store

Available today, "For All Mankind: Time Capsule" is a new augmented reality (AR) experience that brings the world of the popular Apple TV+ series "For All Mankind" right into the homes of fans to uncover memories from the lives of Danny Stevens (Casey Johnson) and his parents, astronauts Gordo (Michael Dorman) and Tracy Stevens (Sarah Jones), in the decade between season one and season two. Through an interactive AR experience, fans join Danny as he examines keepsakes full of details about the off-screen lives of the characters and world of "For All Mankind,” where every object tells a story. 

“AR presents a new and exciting opportunity to bring the world of "For All Mankind" literally into the homes of the audience in a way that hasn’t been possible before,” said Ron Moore, creator and executive producer of "For All Mankind." “I was intrigued from the very beginning at the idea that we could use AR to immerse the audience in the alternate history aspect of the series, explaining and illustrating some of the historical events and technological advances that are implied in the show but which we never had a chance to fully present. Using this technology allows the audience to immerse themselves into the series by interacting with objects, people and media in an impactful and meaningful way that will bring them even closer to world we’ve created.”
