Well folks, it looks like there is another version of the classic tale of Little Orphan Annie underway.
Will and Jada Pinckett-Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment, is officially in production and have Beasts of the Southern Wild actress, Quvenzhané Wallis, hard at work.
Question, are you done with the story or are you up to just one more push? Either way, you should buckle your seatbelt cause Hollywood is taking Annie from the depths of the depression in 1930 and jump cutting to her riding a Citi bike through present day Harlem!

With all of the heat wave hoopla and binge-watching, we forgot to mention that we are taking a Summer break from the podcast.
Fear not fans, in between episodes of Orange is the New Black and the new season of Breaking Bad, we are brainstorming new show ideas for the Fall season and as always we are counting on you, our listeners, for suggestions.
Be sure to leave your comments below or feel free to email us at podcast [at] yougetitgotitgood [dot] com.
Okay, back to barbecuing and being bad. Enjoy the rest of your Summer guys and stay safe!
