Deadline Hollywood, reported October 30, 2018: Whitey Bulger Dies: Mobster-Turned-Informant Inspired Film & TV Characters.
James “Whitey” Bulger, the one-time leader of the South Boston mob who became a controversial FBI informant and was played by Johnny Depp in Scott Cooper’s 2015 film Black Mass, was killed this morning in a high-security West Virginia federal prison. He was 89. Details of his death have not been announced.
He inspired a number of characters in Hollywood films and TV shows. Along with the Black Mass film, Jack Nicholson’s Frank Costello role in Martin Scorsese’s Best Picture Oscar winner The Departed was based on Bulger, as was James Woods’ Sully Sullivan in Ray Donovan. Another Showtime drama, Brotherhood, about a state politician whose brother was a crime boss, was inspired by Bulger and his brother Billy.
No tears for Whitey from me.

Variety, reported October 26, 2018: RIP ‘American Vandal,’ TV’s Best Depiction of Generation Z.
We may never exactly know why Netflix decided to cancel its Peabody Award winning comedy “American Vandal” after two critically lauded seasons. Without Netflix confirming any solid ratings numbers, it’s impossible to know if enough people watched; the best bet is that Netflix simply didn’t feel like gambling anymore on a show owned by CBS Television Studios instead of one wholly its own. But the truth is that no matter the reasoning was behind the decision, it truly is a shortsighted shame.
"American Vandal" was also nominated for an Emmy, which I wrote about in Crime and punishment a major theme of Limited Series nominees at the Emmy Awards for National Wildlife Day at Crazy Eddie's Motie News.

Deadline Hollywood, reported October 19, 2018: Netflix Pulls The Plug On ‘Luke Cage’, No Season 3 For Marvel’s Harlem Hero.
One week after Iron Fist was canned and the same day that the long awaited third season of Daredevil launched, Netflix has canceled Luke Cage.

“Unfortunately, Marvel’s Luke Cage will not return for a third season,” Marvel and the streaming service said on Friday. “Everyone at Marvel Television and Netflix is grateful to the dedicated showrunner, writers, cast and crew who brought Harlem’s Hero to life for the past two seasons, and to all the fans who have supported the series.”

This axing of Luke Cage came as a surprise.
Unlike Iron Fist, this was probably undeserved.
