Forgive us for another delay, but your friend in podcasting, Dean Haglund is working CRAAZY hours shooting his hosting segments for “The X-Files” forthcoming syndication run on YouToo, a brand new cable network. Dean describes more of what he’s been shooting, and what kind of interactive technologies this network plans on utilizing on-air. And since talk of “The X-Files” is in the air, it’s only fitting that Dean and Phil discuss the brand new show Frank Spotnitz has sold to Cinemax and that show’s origins. What will be of particular interest to X-philes is the discussion Dean and Frank had in London about the possibility of an X-Files 3 and the real reason it hasn’t happened already (and no, Fox is NOT to blame).
Of course, even if you’ve never seen an episode of “The X-Files”, there will be plenty to love about this week’s installment of YOUR Chillpak Hollyood Hour, including discussions of a new Alien, a new Blade Runner and a new …The Wild Bunch?!?
Phil sings the praises of three actresses who have really come into their own as movie stars and whose extraordinary talents are on display at American multiplexes right now.
As podcast royalty, it is the responsibility of Dean and Phil to remember the Queen of Hollywood and a former First Lady, both of whom died this past week.
Finally, amidst all the stories of marketing madness and bizarre celebrity behavior, Dean and Phil find time to plot a way of attracting a brand new sponsor for show, looking to “The Jersey Shore”‘s The Situation for inspiration!
