Amazon Studios is reportedly developing the limited event series “Mercury 13” which sounds essentially like a female spin on “The Right Stuff”. Based on Martha Ackmann’s novel “The Mercury 13,” the story is set in 1961 and tells the story of a group of female crackerjack pilots and patriots who underwent secret testing to become the first American female astronauts. Though they sacrificed much and passed their tests at the Lovelace Foundation, NASA and Capitol Hill never let them progress.
Sony Pictures has reportedly won the right to finance and the domestic and international distribution rights to Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film currently going by the title “#9”. The ensemble drama is set in Los Angeles in the late 1960s and early 1970s, with Tarantino hoping hard that Margot Robbie will play the role of Sharon Tate.
The FCC has voted 3-2 to endorse the new ATSC 3.0 TV standards. Already endorsed by many networks and the National Association of Broadcasters, the new voluntary standard is now in active tests in parts of the United States. The new standard will change broadcast network presentation – opening up additional bandwidth to allow higher-grade 4K picture, enhanced audio and interactive layers not currently offered by over-the-air networks (such as multiple angles of live sporting events).
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
