James Franco's Emmy-nominated series “Making A Scene" comes back for its third season Monday to impersonate some of pop culture's most memorable moments.
While the first two seasons focused on the buzziest movies and television shows, the third season has a huge emphasis on music videos. Each 10-minute episode will explore a largely improvisational short skit which will include, “Beyonce's Express” mixing up Queen B's “Lemonade” and the iconic film “Pineapple Express;” “Famous Potter,” which will mash up Kanye West's “Famous” with “Harry Potter;” and “Anaconda Scissorhands” that will explore a parody of Nicki Minaj's “Anaconda” and Edward Scissorhands.
The topics for this season were randomly determined using a dart board and the show's reoccurring spinning wheel.
Franco has also made another big change for his upcoming series switching the VOD service to Blackpills, a digital media company who specializes in short scripted premium content.
In a joint statement, executive producers Vince Jolivette and Eric Day said, “We hope fans of the show are as excited to make the jump to Blackpills as we are. We're in the company of some great directors and talent on Blackpills and as such James and all of us worked very hard in this third season to bastardize the work of each and every one of them. Fans are going to love it.”
“Working with James Franco and his entire team has been incredible,” Patrick Holzeman, co founder of Blackpills said. “Both of our visions align so clearly, truly reflective how millennials actually want to watch their content. Who better to add raw, artistic expression to Blackpills than James Franco.”
Josh Peck, Juno Temple, Liza Koshy, Brandon Rogers, Toby Turner, Brittany Furlan, Kian Lawley and Lia-Marie Johnson will appear for special cameos.
