Not sure if anyone else has noticed, but it looks like Paramount Plus (ANZ) might be accidentally getting the domestic (North America) versions of all their content, rather than the International? (e.g.) “NCIS” episodes and “Lethal Weapon 4” (this I detailed in another thread) to name a couple are a bit different to the same titles on Foxtel’s Binge.

That’s a bit strange. However I can confirm that some content has the international version, for example the South Park Movie has the WB logo, if it was the American version it would have the Paramount logo instead. I feel like that they just use the same print for all content for all countries Paramount+ is in except for content that has different distributors in different countries (etc. example above)

NCIS and LW4 are definitely not the same between Paramount+ and Binge, just thought it was strange, you’d expect they’d be the exact same, only one provider

Paramount+ Debuts Official Trailer For Highly Anticipated Second Season Of Yellowjackets.

Paramount+ Original Series, Yellowjackets Season Two. Streaming Exclusively On Paramount+ On Friday, 24 March.

Paramount+ has released the official trailer for season two of the Emmy-nominated drama Yellowjackets. The season two trailer also marks the release of Grammy® Nominated Artist Florence + The Machine’s exclusive new single Just A Girl, a cover of No Doubt’s iconic song from 1995, which is now available to download and stream. The single is produced by Florence Welch and Mark Bowen of IDLES. Season two of Yellowjackets will debut exclusively on Paramount+ on Friday, 24 March. Season one has a rare 100% score on Rotten Tomatoes and received seven Emmy nominations. Yellowjackets is produced by studio Entertainment One (eOne).

“I’m such a huge fan of Yellowjackets and this era of music, and this song especially had a huge impact on me growing up, so I was thrilled to be asked to interpret it in a ‘deeply unsettling’ way for the show,” said Florence Welch about Just A Girl and Yellowjackets. “We tried to really add some horror elements to this iconic song to fit the tone of the show. And as someone who’s first musical love was pop punk and Gwen Stefani it was a dream job.”

What an awful positioner, this should explain why:

Produced in house, the campaign creative also debuts a new visual design system, which reimagines the company’s iconic branding while honoring its heritage and creative spirit.

Some examples:

Now I’ve looked into it a bit more, seems to be a US only thing across the whole of the Paramount business as it highlights CBS, Paramount+, Paramount Network, CBS Sports, Nick Jr, Paramount Movies etc.

Yep - it’s only a US thing. Thought it might be of interest though.

Grease Is The Word Official Music Video From Upcoming Paramount+ Original Series.

Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies. Exclusively Streaming Friday, 7 April On Paramount+.

Paramount+ today released the official music video for the single, Grease Is The Word from the upcoming new original series, Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies . The musical series will premiere with two episodes on Friday, 7 April exclusively on Paramount+. Following the premiere, new episodes of the 10-episode season will be available to stream weekly on Fridays.

Grease Is The Word is a modern take on the iconic song Grease, which was written by Barry Gibb and performed by Frankie Valli and served as the opening track of the 1978 classic musical film. Grease Is The Word will be featured alongside 30 original songs in season one of Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies , with executive music producer and GRAMMY Award nominated songwriter Justin Tranter at the helm. As seen in the Grease Is The Word music video, each song in the series will be accompanied by a choreographed dance number, led by choreographer Jamal Sims.

Release details on the full Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies soundtrack from Capitol Records will be announced at a later date.

Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies stars Marisa Davila as Jane, Cheyenne Isabel Wells as Olivia, Ari Notartomaso as Cynthia, Tricia Fukuhara as Nancy, Shanel Bailey as Hazel, Madison Thompson as Susan, Johnathan Nieves as Richie, Jason Schmidt as Buddy, Maxwell Whittington-Cooper as Wally and Jackie Hoffman as Asst. Principal McGee.

The musical series takes place four years before the original Grease. In 1954, before rock ‘n’ roll ruled, before the T-Birds were the coolest in the school, four fed-up outcasts dare to have fun on their own terms, sparking a moral panic that will change Rydell High forever.

From Paramount Television Studios, Grease: Rise Of The Pink Ladies is written and executive produced by Annabel Oakes (Atypical, Minx), who also serves as showrunner and directed a later episode. Alethea Jones (Made for Love, Dollface, Evil) directed the pilot plus two more episodes and executive produces. Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey executive produce for Temple Hill, and Adam Fishbach also executive produces. Erik Feig and Samie Kim Falvey executive produce via PICTURESTART, and it’s produced by Grace Gilroy. Choreography by Jamal Sims, who also directed, and music by GRAMMY Award nominee and executive music producer Justin Tranter.

The first episode will also be shown on 10 on 27 March at 9.15pm (after Australian Survivor grand final).

A three-way crossover for April on CBS.

Watching Last King of the Cross on my laptop, and whilst it’s a great series it’s obvious that Paramount are primarily a content business and have not invested enough in technology or advancement of its streamer to date.

Few things that need to improve which are essentially standard nowadays:

  • The time between new episodes starting when binging is far too long, you have to wait for the option to appear after nearly all the credits have aired
  • The show shrinks back from full screen mode and you need to select that option again at the end of each episode
  • No option to skip the recap at the beginning or the opener

I do believe this feature exists on the service. but only for some shows for some strange reason. Totally stupid.

Totally odd that it’s not there for a massive P+ original series.
