Monica Lewinsky objects to the title of an HLN special – and the …

On Tuesday, Monica Lewinsky publicly complained about the title of an upcoming HLN documentary focused on the scandal around the relationship between the former White House intern and President Bill Clinton. By Wednesday morning the network changed the title.

Beginning Dec. 3, HLN will air a two-part episode of its true crime series, “How it Really Happened,” about Clinton and Lewinsky – the affair, the fallout and household names that followed. The network originally titled the special “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal,” and Lewinsky was not having it.

On Tuesday, Lewinsky, who has emerged from her scandal-scarred past as an anti-bullying activist, suggested her own correction to the title. She had retweeted a promo for the special, photo-shopping a red line in front of the words “The Monica Lewinsky Scandal” and replacing it with her own suggestions: “The Starr Investigation” or “The Clinton Impeachment.”

“Fixed it for you. You’re welcome,” tweeted Lewinsky.

‘Mindhunter’ renewed for season 2: ‘We need to talk to more subjects’

“I don’t think they’ve officially green-lit a second season,” said “Mindhunter” star Jonathan Groff when we chatted with him recently, and he didn’t want to jinx it. “Until I’m taking a shit in my trailer while we’re shooting I’m really not going to believe that this job is happening — that’s just my MO.” Well he can breathe a sigh of relief because the renewal became official when “Mindhunter” announced it on November 30 in an Instagram post. Scroll down to see that announcement as well as our video interview with Groff.

“We need to talk to more subjects. ‘Mindhunter‘ season 2 is coming,’ says the announcement, referencing the show’s central premise. The Netflix drama stars Groff as FBI Agent Holden Ford, who studies the criminal mind by interviewing real-life imprisoned serial killers including Ed Kemper (played by Cameron Britton) and Jerry Brudos (played by

‘The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All’ Gives Viewers A Whole New …

You may think that you’ve already learned everything there is to know about the infamous Menendez Murders after watching the first season of the new Law Order spinoff, Law Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders. But although this fictional series covered many of the events surrounding the crime and the eventual trial, it was still a scripted drama that was free to interpret some events as the writers saw fit. The new AE documentary series, The Menendez Murders: Erik Tells All, (airing Thursdays at 10 p.m.) seeks to sort through the rumors and speculation regarding the case to get down to the facts (at least the facts as Erik sees them). And Erik Menendez himself will speak out regarding the murders, in the most in-depth interview he has given since the trial.  

Erik and Lyle Menendez were the

Documentary ‘What Happened in Vegas’ blows the whistle on local …

A filmmaker’s brutal encounter with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department compelled him to make “What Happened in Vegas,” a documentary profile that blows the whistle on a disturbing pattern of excessive force and corruption within its ranks.

Ramsey Denison, a TV editor by trade, was vacationing in Las Vegas several years ago when he placed a 911 call after witnessing what he felt was police brutality against a handcuffed man, only to himself be subsequently arrested and sentenced to three days in the Clark County Detention Center.

Judging from the four case studies included in this documentary, Denison got off comparatively easy, given the fatal police shootings of Trevon Cole, Erik Scott, Stanley Gibson and Tashii Farmer-Brown, which to date have resulted in seven-figure settlement payments by the LVMPD to the families of Cole and Gibson.

Denison’s experience cutting true crime programs pays off, delivering a polished production that also profiles the

HLN Teases Special Titled ‘The Lewinsky Scandal’ — And Monica Isn’t Having It

President Donald Trump is not the only person who has a beef with CNN. HLN, whose parent network is the cable news giant CNN, got put on blast by former presidential intern Monica Lewinsky over a planned television special that bore her name.

It started when HLN began running promotional ads for the special, which was to run as part of a true crime series on the network. The Hill reported:

HLN, sister network of CNN, is set to revisit “the shocking affair that nearly toppled a presidency” with a two-part special on Monica Lewinsky and former President Clinton.

“The Monica Lewinsky Scandal” will run Sunday at 9 p.m. as part of HLN’s true crime series, “How It Really Happened,” with host Hill Harper, the network announced Tuesday.

When Does ‘Mindhunter’ Season 2 Premiere? A Second Season Is Officially Happening

We’re not done hunting minds yet, y’all. A month and a half after producer David Fincher’s edge-of-your-seat serial killer thriller Mindhunter premiered, Netflix has announced that a second season is officially on the way. Fincher has actually already let some details about the upcoming season slip, and it sounds like fans of the show have a lot to look forward to. So when will Mindhunter Season 2 premiere, and what is going to happen next with the messed-up moral gray area that is Holden Ford? Let’s get into everything we know about the new season right now.

This renewal should come as no surprise to fans of Mindhunter — the crime drama landed on Netflix in October to rave reviews (its first season holds an impressive 96 percent on Rotten Tomatoes), and the season finale left viewers with a bunch of pressing, unanswered questions. Oh,
