Happy mid-week Pop Culture Fix, friends and foes! (Just kidding, none of you are my foes!)
+ Hallmark’s upcoming movie, Wedding Every Weekend, will feature a lesbian wedding as one of those weddings that happen every weekend. These are Hallmarks first gays ever. NBC News’ article about it has absolutely delighted me for this quote alone: “Thank you Hallmark Channel USA!,” commented one man on Facebook.
+ Hold the phone: Keke Palmer had a Disney Channel series that didn’t get picked up???
+ Oh you know, just Stacey Abrams out here moderating a One Day at a Time panel at PaleyFest.
+ I believe you (and Carmen) will have plenty of feelings about TV Line’s list of Grey’s Anatomy characters, ranked.
+ Yesterday, Twitter-er Thedude3445 asked us to investigate whether or not they’d found the actual first lesbian kiss on TV: “It was between country singer k.d. lang and an unnamed cow muppet during episode 9 of the JIM HENSON HOUR, back in 1989.” We cannot yet confirm this, but Natalie did find the full clip on YouTube and wwwwoooow!
+ Roxane Gay will adapt her graphic novel, The Banks, for TKO Studios’ Marco and also obviously will executive produce. (If you’ve never read The Banks, you should; it’s illustrated by Bombshells‘ Ming Doyle. She and Gay are a dream team.)
+ This is NOT good news: Avatar‘s creators have left Netflix’s live-adaptation of the series.
