‘Keith Richards: Under the Influence’ doc due Sept. 18 on Netflix.

Here’s the latest from the Television Critics Association summer meeting in Beverly Hills, California, at which TV networks and streaming services are presenting details on upcoming programs (all times local): “I’m sure ‘Saturday Night Live’ wishes they were on the air right now,” Fey said during a panel discussion at the summer Television Critics Association Meeting. “I’m sure next year at this time you’ll be doing a panel with Darrell Hammond (the former ‘SNL’ cast member who does an impression of Trump).” Fey was head writer and a cast member on “Saturday Night Live” before she went on to star in NBC’s “30 Rock.” Now she’s a co-creator and executive producer of the Netflix series “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.” Stephen Colbert, whose hosting reign of “The Late Show” doesn’t begin until September, recently posted a video on the show’s YouTube channel, mocking Trumps announcement to run for president. “There’s no real policy,” Netflix content head Ted Sarandos told a panel of journalists Tuesday. “There’s no ‘a show has to check off these boxes to make it.'” “Longmire,” starring Robert Taylor and Katee Sackhoff, was canceled by A&E in 2014 after three seasons.Rolling Stones songwriter and lead guitarist Keith Richards is the subject of a new documentary, “Keith Richards: Under the Influence,” coming to Netflix in September in conjunction with the release of his first solo album in more than 20 years. Director Morgan Neville, whose exploration of the careers of several backup singers “20 Feet From Stardom,” earned him an Academy Award, this time looks at one of the most colorful characters and widely respected songwriters and guitarists in rock music. “If there’s a Mount Rushmore of rock ‘n’ roll, Keith’s face is surely on it,” Neville said in a statement. “He has always represented the soul of rock music — for all of the light and dark shades that implies. Marvel series’ will be supplemented with new content featuring the Defenders, an Avengers-like group whose characters include Jones, Daredevil, Iron Fist and Luke Cage.

To my relief, Keith Richards turned out to be a real man — full of humor, knowledge and wisdom.” The film will delve into Richards’ musical journey, tracking the songs and genres that influenced his style as an artist. All four will join forces in a combined “Defenders” season after each has been introduced with its own first season. “Daredevil,” which premiered this spring, has been picked up for a second season. That’s the real Keith we’ve worked to capture in our film, and I’m honored to bring it to a global audience via Netflix.” The doc, a RadicalMedia (What Happened, Miss Simone?, The Fog of War) and Tremolo production, hails from many involved with Netflix’s critically acclaimed Miss Simone doc, which The New York Times recently called “an often electric, bracingly urgent documentary.” Joining producers Neville, Justin Wilkes and Jane Rose on Under the Influence are Emmy-nominated cinematographer Igor Martinovic and editor Joshua L. It also will include some video shot in New York during the making of “Crosseyed Heart,” which was previewed for journalists and others last week in Los Angeles and New York.

And that momentum continues with a July 23rd announcement of another Netflix original movie, an adaptation of Loung Ung’s memoir First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers, from filmmaker Angelina Jolie. Netflix, which aired a fourth season of the show in 2013, is planning to bring the cast, including Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi and Will Arnett, together for more episodes, but Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos says the sticking point seems to be coordinating their busy schedules. “We are plugging along,” he said. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox.” Sandler, whose latest movie, “Pixels,” pulled in $24-million in the U.S. in its first weekend — less than analysts expected — stars in “The Ridiculous Six,” which premieres on Dec. 11 on the streaming site.
