Last year, we all bemoaned the fact that Netflix — home of some of the best prestige television in the industry — had decided to get in bed with Adam Sandler, signing him to a four picture deal. Our worst fears were confirmed when we found out the first one was Ridiculous Six, and they were doubly confirmed after controversy erupted on the set about the depiction of Native Americans. They were triply confirmed when Sandler defended himself, calling the film “pro-Indian.”
That movie is gonna shine real bright coming on the coattails of The Beast of No Nation, Netflix.
How do you crawl any lower than Adam Sandler, Netflix? Got anything in mind?
Rob Schneider’s eight-episode comedy series Real Rob is coming to Netflix this December, just in time for the holidays (in fact, just ten days before Ridiculous 6 is released). The sitcom, like Schneider’s previous sitcom, is based on his life. It’s said to be “an exaggerated yet brutally honest depiction of Schneider’s real life” and it will mix scripted elements with Schneider’s stand-up material.
Norm Macdonald will make guest appearances, hopefully to berate Schneider, who will be played by a colostomy bag.
