Welcome to Screen Juice, the TGJ original feature whipped up to keep you in the loop with all things Film and TV-related.
Who makes up the ingredients in this edition’s entertainment shake?
The performer Miche’le and First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama.
Perhaps best known for her romantic ties to feuding Hip-Hop titans Dr. Dre & Suge Knight, Michel’e has learned that the Lifetime Network intends to tell her story by way of a biopic after it was glossed over in the box office-rocking ‘Straight Outta Compton.’
The release, named ‘The Miche’le Story’ will come as part of its 2016/2017 programming schedule and see them unearth the domestic violence-related secrets many believe derailed her career.
A premiere date is yet to be set.
Miche’le isn’t the only one set to impact the world of television in the coming months.
For, Michelle Obama is to do the same.
Indie Wire reports:
First Lady Michelle Obama will appear in an NCIS episode in conjunction with “Joining Forces,” a nationwide initiative supporting service members, veterans and their families.
In the NCIS episode “Homefront,” First Lady Michelle Obama welcomes NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the wife of a Marine to the White House for a “Joining Forces” roundtable with military spouses. The extras cast in the roundtable scene were actual military spouses.
In 2011, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden came together to launch “Joining Forces,” a nationwide initiative calling all Americans to rally around service members, veterans and their families and support them through wellness, education and employment opportunities.
Catch the episode when it airs on Tuesday, May 3 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT), on CBS.
