Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen ‘teetering’ on returning to ‘Fuller House,’ Netflix exec reveals at TCAs.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told TV critics here Tuesday morning that the twins are “teetering back and forth” on whether to join virtually every other original cast member in the upcoming Netflix revival of the sitcom “Full House.” Most of the cast has agreed to join the 13-episode revival, which Sarandos said will “be in the spirit” of the original, but with an updated look and sensibility. “I understand they’re in a different place and I wish them the best,” Stamos tweeted in May. “I promise you will not be disappointed with our reunion and spin off!!” The news of the Olsen twins’ possible reunion comes one day after Stamos confirmed that Jesse will still be married to Lori Loughlin’s character, Aunt Becky, in the new show. But in this instance, Keith Richards: Under the Influence is the title of a new Netflix documentary from Academy Award-winning director Morgan Neville.Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen haven’t made a final decision about returning for Netflix’s Fuller House — find out the latest intel on a possible reunion.LOS ANGELES — Netflix boss Ted Sarandos is standing by Adam Sandler’s Ridiculous Six, which has been plagued by accusations of cultural insensitivity. They said they were protesting its content, which they found offensive to their culture. “We live in a very complicated time with social media and everything where things take on a life of their own very quickly,” Sarandos told reporters Tuesday. “I think when people see Ridiculous Six it will speak for itself in terms of its treatment of American Indians.” According to the actors who walked off, the film’s treatment of female American Indians was particularly off-putting, with character named things like “Beaver’s Breath” and “No Bra.” “It was a very interesting time in history when there were 120-some folks on that set and one person had a problem and it blew up,” Sarandos added. “It’s unfortunate the way it played out.

The fortunate thing is that when it comes out, people will see it was unfair.” “Not to give you a defensive answer here, but I definitely don’t have to defend Adam Sandler,” Sarandos added. “Pixels did $24 million domestic opening; did $25 million international. So it just felt like a great fit, it’s a really, really marvelous film.” The doc charts the journey of Keith’s sound – and that of the Rolling Stones, obviously – as it looks back to the music that inspired him.

A third of our subscribers are outside of the U.S., and we did our deal with Adam Sandler because he’s an enormous international global movie star.” It features rare archival material and intimate, reflective conversations with Keith. “To my relief, Keith Richards turned out to be a real man, full of humour, knowledge and wisdom,” Neville said in a statement. “That’s the real Keith we’ve worked to capture in our film and I’m honoured to bring it to a global audience via Netflix.” Speaking of global audiences, Sarandos pointed out it was only three years ago that Netflix began creating original content. The cast members “have fallen right back into their roles,” Sarandos dished. “It’s very much in the same spirit, but it’s a modern take on Full House.” The new series follows eldest Tanner daughter D.J. (Candace Cameron Bure), now a widow, and her fellow single-mom BFF Kimmy Gibbler (Andrea Barber), as they raise their children together. This year, Netflix will be releasing 475 hours of original programming, with such marquee titles as House of Cards, Orange is the New Black and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Jodie Sweetin (middle daughter Stephanie Tanner), Bob Saget (patriarch Danny Tanner), John Stamos (Uncle Jesse), Lori Loughlin (Aunt Becky), Dave Coulier (Joey), and more original cast members are all returning for the reboot, scheduled to debut on Netflix in 2016.

The latter show, of course, comes from Tina Fey and Robert Carlock, and just landed an Emmy Award nomination in the best-comedy category for its first season. As for other developments at Netflix, when Sarandos was asked about the Fuller House project, he said, “The Olsen twins are teetering on whether or not they’ll be around.” Asked about more Arrested Development, Sarandos said the “intent” is to have another season, and negotiations are underway, but it’s complicated not only because the actors are busy doing other things, but also because the show is owned by Fox (where Arrested Development aired during its network days). More programming announcements from Netflix: Longmire, revived after being cancelled by A&E, debuts Sept. 10; Aziz Ansari’s series Master of None debuts Nov. 6; the animated Bojack Horseman, with Will Arnett, has been renewed for a third season; and new standup specials will feature Mike Epps, Demetri Martin, Anjelah Johnson, Anthony Jeselnik, John Mulaney and Brent Morin.
