Dancing With the Stars Junior Edition - Cheryl Burke: I tuned in for an episode or two to check out this new ABC series. It's cute, I'll give it that. Each pair of young dancers is a professional dancing youth and a entertainment personality. Each pair has an adult coach. One pair's coach is Cheryl Burke. I haven't seen her in a few years and if her name was not spoken or in print, I would not have recognized her  I'm not sure what it is she had done, but her face seems so much thinner or taller that I truly would not have recognized her, despite watching all seasons of Dancing with the Stars that she was on. A true head scratcher, but my wife says that she must have lost a lot of weight. This seems different, but there's that.

The Enthralling, Six-Part Crime Story will be Brought to Life on Sundance Now Commercial-free and with all new Dynamic Captions

Sundance Now, AMC Networks’ direct-to-consumer SVOD service curated with high-quality dramas and crime thrillers, announced today that “Exeter,” its first-ever scripted podcast, will premiere Thursday, October 25th. Season 2 of the thriller podcast series has also been greenlit with new episodes slated to premiere in early 2019.

“’Exeter’ is an innovative project and my first foray into the scripted podcast space. I love living in the world Ronnie Gunter created and exploring the character of Colleen Clayton in this medium. She’s a loner and very strong – almost to a fault – who lives for her work as a detective as well as taking care of her brother,” said Jeanne Tripplehorn, “I’m thrilled to team up with Sundance Now.”

The six-episode podcast series, created by indie writer/director Ronnie Gunter (Lighter), stars Jeanne Tripplehorn (“Big Love,” “Grey Gardens”) and Ray McKinnon (“Rectify,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Deadwood”). “Exeter,” will be further brought to life utilizing dynamic captions, also known as ‘kinetic typography,’ a process by which words and phrases in the character’s dialogue are animated to underscore emotion and heighten tension. The presentation will not only introduce a deaf audience to a previously inaccessible format, but also create an exclusive, unique visual experience for fans of the traditional audio drama. This marks the first time this process has been utilized for a scripted dramatic podcast.

“Exeter” is a gripping crime mystery that follows a veteran detective, Colleen Clayton (Jeanne Tripplehorn), as she is forced to reconcile the errors of a past case when a woman she convicted of murder is exonerated after 10 years in prison. Detective Clayton struggles to keep the trust of her department as a series of grisly and ritualistic murders rock her decaying South Carolina town, putting her at odds with her ambitious partner, Lester Pruitt (McKinnon) as they race to put the pieces together.
