The partnership is comprised of former Cartoon Network GM Brian Miller, comic and screenwriter Dan Abnett, long-time film executive Quincy Newell,and animation shop Team Legend Studios.Newell, who founded Code Black Entertainment then ran the group focused on Black-oriented films for five years at Lionsgate, said the partnership has been cooking between the principals for a long time, fueled by a keen awareness of a hole in programming available for BIPOC families even in the vast sea of content available on streaming services.Speaking to British GQ, the La La Land star admitted he has to keep an eye on the clock these days in "a way I never used to".“In the animation space, just like in the traditional content space, there's a lack of diversity, but in animation it's particularly severe,” Newell said.And wearing a trademark wrestling singlet, he defeated Tommaso Ciampa on Tuesday night to win the NXT title at New Year’s Evil.“We have the capability if we want to serve the (broader) market (for BIPOC-focused content).He said: ""Our kids were at a difficult age not to be able to see other kids and interact with people, even though Eva and I did our best.But I think there's a greater opportunity when we move toward the family end.

We do have a lot of adult content on primetime TV.And when discussing his movies, he admitted that he isn't in a rush to introduce his kids to his work incase they struggle to decipher what is fantasy and what is reality.” Taking place in front of an audience of approximately 450 people at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, the 24-year-old Rechsteiner showcased why is he is the future of the industry.We're saying, ‘Hey, here's our opportunity.’” The partnership will create and sell its own projects, but also hopes to recruit and mentor up-and-coming BIPOC animation talent, providing a package of services and support to help make those projects happen, Newell said.One way the F9 actress does this is to avoid sharing their faces on social media.Given the crush of streaming services, Newell said he expects the group will be able to find plenty of potential homes for its shows, especially as those streaming services branch out beyond the U.It featured its share of highlights, primarily when he hit Ciampa with an Alabama slam onto the broadcast table.S."I'll talk about them of course, with limits, but I won't post pictures of our daily life.

borders.MORE FOR YOU."And I won't post their image until they're old enough to give me consent.Ciampa tapped, which was the finish–but it was also symbolic for the future of NXT, which no longer features the same black-and-gold era stars it did just six months ago.

Family Sues for Damages Over Clubhouse Pool Swim Diaper BanJack Yeager and Simone Yeager claim their diaper-clad granddaughter’s civil rights were violated when she was ejected from the pool. So was she wearing a real swim diaper or a regular diaper that explodes when it gets submerged in water. I’m guessing the latter. And nobody is discriminating against your goddamn un-potty trained toddler running around in a close to exploding diaper full of pee and pool water I am never going to be in the same pool with a kid wearing diapers. Absolutely pathetic 🙄
