JULY 3-9, 2019 UCW 23 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM WEEKLY HOROSCOPE NEWS OF THE WEIRD by the Editors at Andrews McMeel Syndication Niche marketing Say you have a new baby. Say you're overwhelmed with love and sleep deprivation, and say you've been auditioning names for months, to no avail. Future Perfect, a web startup, will hap- pily accept your $350 fee to "email you a customized list of names" to choose from, plus 15 minutes of phone time with one of its consultants. "Working your way through thousands of alpha- betized names can be a useful exercise for some," the website explains, "but the lists we pro- vide are personalized, hyper-cu- rated and unique to each client's specific criteria." They'll even help you name your pets! WABC reports that Future Perfect offers less expensive packages as well, such as a $100 "namestorming session." [WABC, 6/11/2019] Awesome! Hundreds of divers set a Guin- ness World Record on June 15 at Deerfield Beach, Florida, where they met to perform an under- water cleanup. Fox35 reported that 633 divers collected 9,000 pieces of debris on the ocean floor during the event, which was organized by Dixie Divers. The previous record, 615 divers, was set in the Red Sea of Egypt in 2015. [Fox35, 6/16/2019] Chutzpah German Instagram "influ- encers" Catalin Onc and Elena Engelhardt have faced a digital dressing-down after they set up a GoFundMe page requesting donations for a bike trip to Africa. They want to raise about 10,000 euros for the jaunt, but some people aren't on board. Onc and Engelhardt live with Onc's moth- er, who supports them by work- ing at two jobs, The Independent reported. They posted on their In- stagram page: "Some will just tell us to get jobs, like everyone else and stop begging. But when you have the impact we do on others' life (sic), getting a job is not an option. A normal job at this point would be detrimental." Com- menters let loose on the couple: "Get a job and treat your mum, she shouldn't be funding her grown son to wander the world like a lost boy." And, "You're not impacting anyone's life, you are just a couple of freeloaders trying to get holidays paid for by mugs."

Question: Is the PBS show "e Durrells in Corfu" coming back? It is such a fun show! Even my 95-year-old mom likes it! — Becky Matt Roush: at's quite the endorse- ment, and I get it. (My mom just turned 90, and it's harder and harder to get her involved in episodic TV that isn't "Downton Abbey.") e good/ bad news is that a fourth season of "Durrells" is forthcoming — no air date announced yet, though most likely will air on PBS in the fall — but it will be the final season. Question: When might the BBC pro- duction of "A Gentleman in Moscow" be shown in the U.S.? Just finished reading the marvelous book by Amor Towles and heard that Kenneth Branagh is directing and starring in it in a series for the BBC, and my book club is eager to view it. Any informa- tion as to when it will hit our shores?? — Betty Matt Roush: It's a bit premature, since news of the adaptation surfaced just two months ago. Depending on how long production takes and who picks it up — no network or platform was announced at the time, so it's not even known yet if it will air on a network like PBS or cable or on a stream- ing service — I'd imagine we'll see it sometime in 2020. e book is high on my own must-read list—finding time to read is its own challenge—and I must say this sounds very promising. To submit questions to TV Critic Matt Roush, go to tvinsider.com. by Damian Holbrook Cheers to "Big Little Lies" for com- ing back in a huge way. Any fears we had about HBO's star-studded soap stretching past Liane Moriarty's novel with an original Season 2 vanished as soon as we saw how Meryl Streep's prickly new character mixed it up with the murderous Monterey Five. Jeers to DC Universe for draining the "Swamp ing." Less than a week after its debut on the comic book empire's digital platform, the A-plus horror drama about a Louisiana bog beast (Derek Mears) was canceled despite scary-good reviews and a fanbase ready to dive in completely.
