About This Club

This club is for the writer nerd. Come in and vent about your daily troubles with words or stick around for the leads. I get leads from all over and would love to see a fellow nerd writer come up. In addition, BGN could use some new voices from time to time, and I often need a writer for a particular assignment. Join the club for the leads and the conversation. Or, to find others to commiserate with.

  1. What's new in this club

  7. Here's a guide for new Fall TV in 2018 AUGUST 31 "Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan": A fine TV series take on the espionage franchise previously done in movies starring Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford, Ben Affleck and Chris Pine. John Krasinksi takes over the role of the CIA analys, and Wendell Pierce offers solid support. (Streaming on Amazon) SEPTEMBER 4 “Mayans M.C.”: A new sequel of sorts to “Sons of Anarchy” from Kurt Sutter and Elgin James, this tells the story of Ezekiel “EZ” Reyes (JD Pardo), and his dealings with a motorcycle club located on the California/Mexico border. The cast includes Edward James Olmos and Danny Pino. (10 p.m. FX) “The Purge”: A 10-episode TV version of the movie franchise, following what happens to various characters during the 12-hour period when all crime is permitted and legal. (10 p.m. USA Network) SEPTEMBER 5 “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia”: The irreverent comedy returns for Season 13. (10 p.m. FXX) SEPTEMBER 7 “Marvel’s Iron Fist”: The superhero adventure returns for Season 2. (Netflix) SEPTEMBER 9 “The Bad Seed”: Rob Lowe stars in and directs a TV take on the classic 1956 movie about a child who seems so sweet and lovely until…well, let’s say there’s a reason for the title. (8 p.m. Lifetime) "Rel": Lil Rel Howery (“Get Out”) is the latest in a long line of stand-up comics to get their own sitcoms. Based on the pilot, “Rel” looks like a comfortable fit. Howery stars as Lil Rel (when will sitcoms stop naming lead characters after the stars?), whose well-ordered life goes awry when he learns his wife had an affair with his barber – “my hair confidant.” Howery is easy to like, and the solid cast includes Sinbad as his father. (8 p.m. Fox) “The Miniaturist”: Anya Taylor-Joy stars as an 18-year-old whose marriage to an affluent merchant in 1686 Amsterdam may not be what it seems. An early preview makes this “Masterpiece” miniseries look extraordinarily beautiful, with a Vermeer-like visual quality. The atmosphere is moody and mysterious and the cast includes the excellent Romola Garai (“The Hour”). (9 p.m. PBS; premieres a week later, Sept. 16 on OPB) Maggie Gyllenhaal in "The Deuce" Season 2. Photo: Paul Schiraldi/HBO “The Deuce”: David Simon and George Pelecanos’ series about the rise of the porn industry continues in its second season. The cast includes James Franco is a dual role, and Maggie Gyllenhaal. (9 p.m. HBO) “Shameless”: The premium cable hit about the dysfunctional Gallagher family returns for Season 9. (9 p.m. Showtime) “Kidding”: Jim Carrey returns to series TV as Jeff, better known as “Mr. Pickles,” a Mr. Rogers-like host of a beloved childrens’ show. But a terrible personal loss has rocked Jeff’s world view, threatening his state of mind, and the future of his very profitable program. Dave Holstein (“I’m Dying Up Here”) created the series, which also reunited Carrey with his “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” director Michel Gondry, who’s a director and executive producer. The cast includes Catherine Keener and Judy Greer. (10 p.m. Showtime) “You”: You’ll really be creeped out by social media after this thriller drama starring Penn Badgley as a guy who gets way too fixated on a woman he meets. (10 p.m. Lifetime) SEPTEMBER 11 “The Great American Read”: Meredith Vieira hosts this eight-part series in which authors and book-lovers talk about favorite works as the search continues for America’s best-loved novel. (8 p.m. PBS; OPB is delaying this until 6 p.m., Sept. 16) SEPTEMBER 12 “American Horror Story: Apocalypse”: The horror anthology brings back familiar faces for the new edition, a “Murder House”/”Coven” crossover. Look for Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Emma Roberts, Jessica Lange, Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott and more. 10 p.m. FX) SEPTEMBER 14 "American Vandal": The first season of the spoof of true-crime series was a surprising hit with critics -- despite the central mystery revolving around high school students investigating a case of vandalism involving penises. So, here's Season 2, which was filmed in and around Portland. And the high school case this time involves finding out the identity of the so-called "Turd Burglar." (Streaming on Netflix) “Bojack Horseman”: The critically adored animated series (not for kids) returns for Season 5. (Netflix) “Forever”: Fred Armisen (“Portlandia”) and his “Saturday Night Live” castmate Maya Rudolph star in a new comedy as a long-married Riverside California couple who shake up their routine in an unexpected way.

Sean Penn, who hasn’t done much acting in a while, stars, along with Natascha McElhone. I’ll pass on visiting Mars, thanks, but this sounds like a trip worth taking. (Streaming on Hulu) SEPTEMBER 18 “The Hunt for the Trump Tapes With Tom Arnold”: The comedian and non-fan of Donald Trump meets with activists and celebrities as he searches for rumored tapes of Trump that Arnold believes will be damaging. (10:30 p.m. Viceland) SEPTEMBER 21 "Maniac": Cary Joji Fukunaga (“True Detective”) directs this limited series, which looks trippy and daring. The cast is certainly familiar, with Emma Stone, Jonah Hall and Justin Theroux starring in what is vaguely described as “a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial gone awry.” Uh, oh. (Streaming on Netflix) “The Good Cop”: Josh Groban and Tony Danza star in a new series about a New York Police Department detective who gets advice from his father, an NYPD veteran who left the department on less than glowing terms. (Streaming on Netflix) "The Big Bang Theory" begins its twelfth and final season in September. Photo: Michael Yarish/Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. SEPTEMBER 23 “9-1-1”: The nonstop emergencies continue in Season 2. (8 p.m. Fox) SEPTEMBER 24 “The Big Bang Theory”: The hugely successful comedy begins its twelfth and final season.

(8 p.m. HBO) “Young Sheldon”: The “Big Bang” hit prequel returns for Season 2. (8:30 p.m CBS) “Magnum P.I.”: Jay Hernandez inherits Tom Selleck’s old role in an updated version of the Hawaii-set series about a private investigator and his buddies. (9 p.m. CBS) “Bull”: Michael Weatherly returns as the ace trial consultant for Season 3 of legal tales. (10 p.m. CBS) "The Good Doctor”: The medical drama that was a breakout hit in its first season returns for Season 2. Freddie Highmore stars. (10 p.m. ABC) "Manifest": Passengers of a plane leaving Jamaica and heading to New York experience terrible turbulence mid-flight. When they land, it turns out their plane took off in 2013, but this is 2018. What happened? It’s a juicy mystery, though the danger is we’ll be led down a path to nowhere (“Lost”), or the show will vanish before anything is explained (“The Crossing”). But the pilot is good and twisty. (10 p.m. NBC) SEPTEMBER 25 “NCIS”: Last season ended on a messy note, with the departure of Pauley Perrette, who played forensics whiz Abby. But the series is still watched by tons of people, which is likely to be the case as Season 16 begins. (8 p.m. CBS) “The Gifted”: The series inspired by Marvel Comics “X-Men” tales returns for Season 2. (8 p.m. Fox) “This Is Us”: The hit family drama returns for Season 3. Expect to learn more about what the late Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) experienced in Vietnam.

(9 p.m. CBS) “Lethal Weapon”: We don’t know what’s coming in Season 3, but the off-camera situation has been action-packed. Between the end of Season 2, and the official announcement of Season 3, former costar Clayne Crawford was fired, and Seann William Scott was hired to play a new police partner for Murtaugh (Damon Wayans). (9 p.m. Fox) “NCIS: New Orleans”: The crime-fighting team returns for Season 5. (10 p.m. CBS) "New Amsterdam": The pilot of this medical drama is packed with action – and clichés. Ryan Eggold (“The Blacklist”) overdoes the charm as Dr. Max Goodwin, new medical director of New Amsterdam, a Bellevue-like public hospital founded in 1766. He’s got personal challenges, but gosh darn it, Goodwin is idealistic and everything you wish a doctor and administrator could be. Maybe Americans worried about health care will find this comforting, but the show needs to get better if it’s not going to try our patience. (10 p.m. NBC) Jude Demorest in "Star." Photo: Wilford Harewood/Fox SEPTEMBER 26 “Survivor”: The reality competition returns for Season 500 – er, make that Season 37.

(10 p.m. NBC) "A Million Little Things": Once you get past comparing it to such predecessors as “The Big Chill” and “This Is Us,” the characters, writing and performances make this drama worth sticking around for. A group of friends reacts to what seems to them the inexplicable suicide of their successful pal (played by Ron Livingston), and the shock forces them to examine their own lives. The excellent cast includes James Roday, David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Grace Park, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Stephanie Szostak and Christina Ochoa. (10 p.m. ABC) The cast of "The Good Place." Photo: NBCUniversal SEPTEMBER 27 “The Good Place”: Nobody can say this comedy starring Kristen Bell and Ted Danson is predictable.

(10 p.m. ABC) “S.W.A.T.”: The rebooted crime procedural gets back on the case in Season 2. (10 p.m. CBS) SEPTEMBER 28 “Last Man Standing”: There was plenty of hubbub when the Tim Allen comedy was canceled by ABC about a year ago. Now, it’s back, this time on Fox, but with Allen and Nancy Travis returning to their roles as Mike and Vanessa Baxter. (8 p.m. Fox) “MacGyver”: More adventure awaits, in Season 3. (8 p.m. CBS) “The Cool Kids”: David Alan Grier, Vicki Lawrence, Martin Mull and Leslie Jordan play quippy seniors in a new comedy about folks in a retirement home.

Joe Morton (“Scandal”) plays Miles’ father, who’s a preacher at a church in Harlem. (8:30 p.m. CBS) “Family Guy”: The night of long-running series continues, with the Season 17 premiere of the animated comedy.

The cast also includes Max Greenfield, Tichina Arnold and Beth Behrs. (8 p.m. CBS) “Happy Together”: Damon Wayans Jr. plays Jake, an accountant whose peaceful domestic life with his wife, Claire (Amber Stevens West) is upended when one of Jake’s clients, Cooper James (Felix Mallard), moves in with the couple.

"The Romanoffs": Matthew Weiner (“Mad Men”) created this anthology series, which boasts a splendid cast. We don’t know much about it yet, other than it’s contemporary, and explores characters who think they’re descendants of the royal family of Russian history. But how can you not look forward to an eight-episode series featuring such talents as Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Andrew Rannells, Amanda Peet, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Isabelle Huppert and Diane Lane?

(10 p.m. ABC) "Manifest": Passengers of a plane leaving Jamaica and heading to New York experience terrible turbulence mid-flight. When they land, it turns out their plane took off in 2013, but this is 2018. What happened? It’s a juicy mystery, though the danger is we’ll be led down a path to nowhere (“Lost”), or the show will vanish before anything is explained (“The Crossing”). But the pilot is good and twisty. (10 p.m. NBC) SEPTEMBER 25 “NCIS”: Last season ended on a messy note, with the departure of Pauley Perrette, who played forensics whiz Abby.

(9 p.m. Fox) “NCIS: New Orleans”: The crime-fighting team returns for Season 5. (10 p.m. CBS) "New Amsterdam": The pilot of this medical drama is packed with action – and clichés. Ryan Eggold (“The Blacklist”) overdoes the charm as Dr. Max Goodwin, new medical director of New Amsterdam, a Bellevue-like public hospital founded in 1766. He’s got personal challenges, but gosh darn it, Goodwin is idealistic and everything you wish a doctor and administrator could be. Maybe Americans worried about health care will find this comforting, but the show needs to get better if it’s not going to try our patience. (10 p.m. NBC) Jude Demorest in "Star."

(10 p.m. NBC) "A Million Little Things": Once you get past comparing it to such predecessors as “The Big Chill” and “This Is Us,” the characters, writing and performances make this drama worth sticking around for. A group of friends reacts to what seems to them the inexplicable suicide of their successful pal (played by Ron Livingston), and the shock forces them to examine their own lives. The excellent cast includes James Roday, David Giuntoli, Romany Malco, Grace Park, Allison Miller, Christina Moses, Stephanie Szostak and Christina Ochoa. (10 p.m. ABC) The cast of "The Good Place."

  8. It’s so discouraging when you work hard on a well-researched editorial with the facts to back it up and people will still question your words. It just goes to show there’s always a critic.
  9. So I wrote an article about the mass shooting problem about a major statistic that no one really is talking about. https://blackgirlnerds.com/bgn-opinion-can-we-talk-about-why-white-guys-are-allowed-to-keep-shooting-up-our-country/ I thought it was well researched. I had another editor look it over before posting. Well, why did my childhood best friend--a white woman--jump on there trying to pick my stuff apart? Then the son of my former foster parents jumped on and is still trying to silence the debate on the article? They are attacking the data and everything else. Ole girl even trotted out the white tears. Smh. It is the friends I made as an adult who are holding me down and embarrassing the hell out of those who knew me when I still wearing barrettes in my hair. The beat down is funny. Here's a link. Anyone else have that trouble? Write something controversial and the folks who know you best, instead of holding you down they are first to try to tear you up.
  10. There is a whole slew of new shows and show premieres coming up. As managing editor, I need to ensure that I have enough folks to cover it all. So, I am calling out for tv writers. BGN pays for the review and/or premiere recap of the show. We then leave the writer to continue the recaps (which becomes a great way to interact with the cast, crew, and fans) or move on to another show. The recaps are also a great portfolio builder, but they are unpaid and not mandatory. However, there are so many show reviews and premiere recaps needed that there is plenty of paid work to go around. Apply for the gig by sending me your resume and links to published clips. My email is jonita@blackgirlnerds.com. If you are light on entertainment writing, draft a recap of an episode of your favorite show--doesn't have to be current--and send it as a sample. BGN is an access point, so we do work with writers who a trying to break inot the industry. I just need to see you writing skills before we begin, hence the sample recap. We wil not use the sample. Apply today. The premieres start in just a few weeks!
