Netflix is adding even more star power to its queue. The streaming service, with a current market cap of $121.63 billion, has ordered Bertie and Tuca, a new animated series with Girls Trip star Tiffany Haddish. The series is created by Lisa Hanawalt, the artist and designer behind the critically acclaimed, existentialist Bojack Horseman. Hanawalt will be executive producer of Bertie and Tuca.
The film, a cross-cultural musical, stars Brie Larson as an agricultural scientist traveling to India touting a new super-rice. She quickly falls for the culture and her love interest, Rajit, played by Utkarsh Ambudkar of Pitch Perfect. “It’s a very unusual film," says director and writer Dan Baron. "We knew that from the beginning, that this was a very unorthodox idea to take a subject tends to be covered more in the documentary genre. But we wanted to do this inside of a musical romantic comedy."
For the fourth year in a row, BBC Radio 3 will spend International Women's Day righting wrongs. Radio 3 will spend the day celebrating female composers who have been excluded from the narrative of musical history for centuries. And for the first time this year, the station has had a call-out for young female composers on the BBC Introducing page.
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".
