Just a few days ago, Sky Arts served up the first trailer for Urban Myths, a comedy series dramatizing legends about famous people. While the show features lots of interesting casting, including Ramsay Bolton from Game of Thrones as Hitler and Eddie Marsan as Bob Dylan, the one that got the most attention was Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson. Predictably, people were pissed.

Predictably, that is, to everyone except for the people involved with that production. Following social media backlash, multiple petitions, and very harsh words from the late musician’s daughter, Paris Jackson, Sky has finally realized that maybe casting a white Englishman to play a black American wasn’t such a hot idea after all and announced that they’re pulling the episode altogether. 

The Urban Myths Michael Jackson episode was to follow Jackson on a road trip with Elizabeth Taylor (Stockard Channing) and Marlon Brando (Brian Cox) in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. Fiennes’ casting was first announced a year ago and immediately attracted widespread criticism. But the Urban Myths team apparently paid the controversy no mind and went on with making the episode. It wasn’t until this week that they finally got the message.

The biggest twist of American Horror Story: Roanoke has been revealed finally. When “AHS” ended its fifth episode last week with the apparent conclusion of the tale of Shelby and Matt’s Roanoke nightmare, everyone wondered what was next. Well, let’s let Cheyenne Jackson’s slimy reality producer, the one who created “My Roanoke Nightmare,” tell you: “It’s like ‘Big Brother,’ but with scares!”

Shelby (Lily Rabe) has seen herself the victim of death threats and her marriage to Matt (Andre Holland) is on the rocks and she’s had an affair with fake Matt, Dominic Banks (Cuba Gooding Jr.).
