Show Notes for Friday August 16, 2019

Emmy- and WGA-nominated writer and actor, producer, showrunner, and moonlighting DJ, Diallo Riddle has proven to be one of the most creative and multifaceted talents in the entertainment industry today.

South Side is an aspirational, scripted comedy set in and around the working class neighborhood of Englewood on the South Side of Chicago. The show follows two friends who just graduated community college ... so now they're ready to take over the world! But until they do they're stuck at Rent-T-Own, a retail-rental crossroads where the South Side's vast ensemble of characters come together. Despite the obstacles of inner-city life, these friends and their co-workers all strive to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams. Brought to life by local Chicagoans, both in front of and behind the camera, this show gives viewers an authentic portrayal of what life on the South Side is all about. It's evidence that what you see on the news is only a small piece of the city. It's written by Bashir Salahuddin (Glow) and Diallo Riddle (Marlon). Salahuddin, Riddle, and Michael Blieden - all Late Night with Jimmy Fallon alumni - are executive producers.
A sketch variety show like none before, Sherman's Showcase travels through time via music and clips drawn from the forty-year library of a legendary (fictional) musical variety show. Inspired by shows like "Solid Gold", "Soul Train" and "Laugh-In".
The eight-episode series has it all: music, comedy, games, and dancing (executive produced by John Legend's Get Lifted Film Co). Guest stars include Marlon Wayans, Tiffany Hadish, Common, Quincy Jones, and Ne-Yo, to name a few.

While handcuffed behind her back in the rear of a Kentucky squad car, a suspect removed a bag of narcotics from her private parts and snorted the white powder inside, according to police who arrested the woman on drug possession and other charges. Responding to a report about an intoxicated couple preparing to drive a car, cops in Winchester encountered 28-year-old Kathryn Ahlers and her boyfriend outside a vehicle on Main Street around 11:30 p.m. Friday. According to a court citation, Ahlers was attempting to remove her toddler from a car seat, but was unsteady on her feet. Ahlers, whose speech was slurred, told police that she and her companion became lost en route to Cincinnati from Lexington. Ahlers was handcuffed behind her back when she somehow “pulled a clear plastic baggie from her vagina cavity” and “dumped some white substance on the seat.” Ahlers then “began to inhale it through her nose.” Ahlers was charged with endangering the welfare of a minor, public intoxication, tampering with physical evidence, and possession of a controlled substance.
