We might as well just go ahead and call the next three days “Arrested Development Weekend.” Yes, the sixth (SIXTH!) “Fast & Furious” cars-and-explosions-fest is out this weekend. Yes, it will compete with the third (THIRD!) “Hangover” movie, which also rolls into theaters this weekend. Not to mention the other blockbusters that are already out, the day-baseball games, barbeques, or anything else that goes into an action-packed Memorial Day Weekend (including, we hope, remembering the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces).
But if you’re a Man (or Woman) of the Internet, your mind is most likely preoccupied with one thing, and one thing only: “Arrested Development” is back. This Sunday. On Netflix. Fifteen episodes of a long-awaited fourth season served via an all-you-can eat streaming buffet.
If you’re a web video provider, that’s a tough thing to compete with this holiday weekend. Which is why if you plan to launch a new show on the Friday before “Arrested Development” returns to the living room (or bedroom, smartphone, or tablet), it doesn’t hurt to debut one that can easily latch on to the buzz surrounding the critically acclaimed comedy.
Yahoo! debuted a new cooking show today, “Cinema & Spice,” which features custom recipes based on hosts Julianna Strickland and Natasha Feldman’s favorite movies and TV shows. Guess which TV show they chose to honor with their first episodes? Check Strickland and Feldman making cornballs and frozen banana dishes here.
“Cinema & Spice” is part of Yahoo’s new slate of lifestyle shows, spanning topics such as food, health, fashion, and relationships. This slate is collectively launching on June 10. We have reached out to Yahoo reps for more info on “Cinema & Spice” as well as the lifestyle slate, and will update accordingly.
