Pop Culture Fix: CBS All Access Wants “One Day At a Time” But Might Not Get It, So You Have That In Common

Welcome to your weekly pop culture fix, full of news about — you guessed it — POP CULTURE!!!!

+ So, CBS All Access Wants to Save One Day at a Time. But Netflix’s deal with Sony allows it to veto any move to a streaming network for at least two years post-cancellation. However, it doesn’t have to do that. It just can. Apparently Norman Lear personally reached out to beg them to let it happen, but “as of Tuesday, however, it appears Netflix is unwilling to budge and allow One Day to shift to the much, much smaller CBS All Access.” If Netflix does veto the deal, the show could still find a home on a broadcast or cable network.

+ Nafessa Williams Is TV’s First Black Lesbian Superhero:

I play the first black lesbian superhero, who’s bold and fearless. She’s unapologetic with who she is. She’s also an activist, which is my most passionate characteristic about her. She fights for what’s right, she stands up [to] the injustice. The social injustices we’re seeing within our country, we’re literally mirroring those in the show. It’s really cool. We got some dope music. The show is just fly, it really is. I’m having a fun-ass time doing it.
