TV Diversity Won't Increase With Pilot Season 2017
Fans were intrigued when FOX added a TV version of the DC/Vertigo title Lucifer to its prime time lineup. The show follows the titular Lucifer (Tom Ellis) as he returns to the mortal world out of boredom, and, after getting mixed up in a murder case, decides to help LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) punish criminals. The crime-fighting duo is occasionally interrupted by larger issues, like tetchy angels and visits to Hell.
AI are making a comeback in media, from poignant films like Ex Machina to popular TV shows like Person of Interest and Humans to upcoming video game titles like System Shock 3. As technology develops more and more rapidly, shows and movies have become interested in the moral consequences of that development, which has led to some thought-provoking creations.
Disney fans have been patiently awaiting the release of the studio’s next animated venture, Moana, for some months now. The computer-animated film follows the titular Moana (Auli’i Cravalho), a sixteen-year-old Polynesian girl and natural-born navigator, as she teams up with the demigod Maui (Dwayne Johnson) to take town mythical baddies and save her home.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
