THE

Defender Picks

 

SDT-TV Returning to Fox


Don’t call it a comeback but, Sidney Torres is renewing his relations with the little screen. THR reportedthat Fox picked up ‘APB,’ a television series based on a NYT articles about SDT titled, “Who Runs the Streets of New Orleans.” Unlike, the ill fated Trashmen, the new drama will not be a reality show meaning the Trashanova won’t receive screen time.


Sinkhole Seer

2000's "On Hostile Ground" Foreshadowed Infrastructure Drama (Sort Of)



You might not know the name Sharon Y. Cobb, but she is a visionary as far New Orleans is concerned. Cobb predicted the city’s current spate of sinkholes 16 years ago in her oft neglected television masterwork “on Hostile Ground.” The masterwork followed the story of a NOLA technocrat and her battle to stop sinkholes from devouring the Crescent City. Perhaps some of it will sound familiar.


TV Sinner?


Sean Payton may have another challenge during the preseason. A new report from Mike Florio of NBCSN professes that the Saints are concerned about being forced to star in the next season of “Hard Knocks.”


Champions Squared


Champions Square will host yet another big-name show this spring. Weezer and Panic! at the Disco will be coming to town on June 12th.


M83 To Light Up The Civic

Spell casting: Q & Miss P Ready to Rock Region


Did the Halloween rain ruin your fall does of funk? Fear not, the City is due for an emergency injection of costumes, weirdness, and msuic. Quintron and Miss Pussycat just announced dates for their fall tour and NOLA will host the final show.


Winners: Trombone Shorty & Scott Van Pelt Team Up (Video)


Jon Batiste was not the only local making a late night television debut this week. Over at the House of Mouse, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue picked up a weekly spot on Scott Van Pelt’s new 11p.m. (CST) ESPN SportsCenter “Winners” segment.


Y'at Pack


In New Orleans, we love our local music, but there is still a respect for the masters. On October 23rd, local musical institution David Torkanowsky will convene a meeting to honor the Chairman of the Board. The Orpheum Theater will play host to a night honoring Frank Sinatra.


One (House) Call Does It All


Morris-Mania is only growing stronger. NOLA’s favorite personal injury attorney made an appearance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show alongside 2-year-old superfan Grayson Dobra.

La-SPCA Builds Memorial to the Federal Flood's Pets



As the city comes closer to the tenth anniversary of the devastation brought upon the region by Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, memorials to the storm are popping up across the city. One such memorial will be a community art display hosted by the Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals La-SPCA). The display will act not only as a way to remember the animal lives that were lost in the storm, but also as a fundraiser to give collars and microchips to the thousands of animals that the SPCA cares for each year.
