USA’s ‘Dare Me’ and Netflix’s ‘Spinning Out’: TV Review

When your job entails watching several new shows a week, overlapping themes are inevitable. Still, similarities between shows are rarely as stark as those between the first seasons of Netflix’s “Spinning Out” (out Jan. 2) and USA’s “Dare Me” (which premiered Dec. 20). Both dramas focus on teen girls as restless as they are talented, a combination that serves them well in their respective competitive sports — figure skating for “Spinning Out,” cheerleading for “Dare Me” — and have them scrambling to survive in their daily lives. Both examine motherhood, and how adults can blur the lines in their relationships to the

Bts Rocks New Year’s Eve With Times Square Performance
Ryan Seacrest predicted that half of Times Square would be fans of South Korean boyband Bts, and judging by the volume of screams heard throughout ABC’s broadcast of “Dick Clark’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest,” the Bts Army was in full force.

Loyal fans came early to cheer on the group — comprised of members Jimin, Jin, Rm, Suga, Jungkook, J Hope, and V — and patiently waited with handmade signs and light sticks to cheer the occasion. All day, the group was prominently displayed on billboards in Times Square as diehards secured spots for the group’s early afternoon rehearsal.

The rights holders to some of TV’s biggest hit series set themselves up in 2019 to cash out big time as media companies committed enormous sums to license properties that will eventually help their streaming services stand out.

First up was “The Office ” — a pillar of Netflix’s library — which NBCUniversal in June committed to paying $500 million for the streaming rights to (it will be housed on Peacock in 2021). Just a few weeks later, WarnerMedia secured the rights to “Friends” — another Netflix staple — for a cool $425 million (“Friends” will be available on HBO Max in 2020).

Madrid — Movistar Plus, the pay TV/Svod arm of giant European telecom Telefonica, is upping the ante. On New Year’s Eve, it announced a first 2020 release line-up – more titles may be added – that has two big swings, more emphasis on action, and a larger number of comedy and non-fiction plays.

2020’s 14 new series or seasons marks an all-time company record.

That, however, is just Movistar Plus, and does not count any big series in the second half of the year, or any that it might put into development via a new joint production venture, announced in September, with broadcast network Atresmedia.
