‘Afterparty’ stars talk about roles in new Apple TV+ series




We told you Tiffany Haddish was busted for DIU, but before she got behind the wheel, she talked to Deco. Tiff’s one of the stars of the upcoming Apple TV+ show “The Afterparty.” Sounds like she kept on partying last night. Anyway, here’s the 411 on the new series.

Going to your high school reunion can be fun and nerve-racking, but you know you’ve made it when you get invited to the reunion’s after party.

In Apple TV+’s “The Afterparty,” the coolest kid in school, played by Dave Franco, invites old friends back to his pad.

But he has a party foul. Franco dies.

Actually, he’s murdered, and everyone is a suspect.

Tiffany Haddish is the detective who wants to find out who done it, but she has her own way of getting to the bottom of things.

Tiffany Haddish: “I would describe her as someone who is a little quirky, unconventional. She’s not your typical hardcore police officer, and she’s fun.”

Haddish interviews each suspect. Each episode of the show is their perspective of the night and the murder.

Sam Richardson is Aniq, a lovable brainiac and possible killer.

Sam Richardson: “Aniq is a hopeless romantic whose perspective is romantic comedy. He’s a bit of a nerd, and he designs escape rooms for a living.”

Yasper, played by Ben Schwartz, is the guy who hoped to be popular by association. Now he’s hoping not be a murder suspect.

Ben Schwartz: “My character’s aspiration is to be this big musician, this big music star when he was younger, and he never quite hit that aspiration. He’s hoping, being so close to someone like Dave Francos character Xavier, he will help him get closer to being a big, big star.” 

The series has a little bit of everything: the jocks, the cheerleaders, and even music geeks will like it.

Tiffany Haddish: “I would define this as a comedy, musical, murder mystery, rom-com, action-packed series.”

Tiffany Haddish (as Detective Danner): “We need to know who killed him tonight.”

“The After Party” starts streaming on Apple TV plus on Jan. 28.

Thursday is warming up Orlando, but the heat won’t stay for long




A warming trend is rising in Central Florida, but another cold front is hot on its heels coming into the weekend.

Temperatures are approaching well above the average for January, with the high forecast for 79 degrees Thursday, the temperature low is predicted at 58, said Maureen McCann, Spectrum News 13 meteorologist.

A southwesterly wind is warming things up ahead of an approaching system thought to be bringing rain and cold temperatures to Central Florida, McCann said.

Thursday is not anticipated to have rain, but rain chances emerge Friday at 20% and Saturday at 40%. Following the rain, temperatures should drop, with Saturday’s high forecast for 65 degrees and the low at 48. That cold trend should remain in the five-day forecast through the rest of the weekend and into the start of the next work week.

Driver transported after crashing into fence in Hollywood




HOLLYWOOD, FLA. (WSVN) – A woman has been transported to the hospital after crashing her vehicle into a fence in Hollywood.

7SkyForce hovered over the scene where rescue crews could be seen carrying the woman away from the side of the road on a stretcher.

The crash happened along the eastbound lanes of Pines Boulevard near 68th Avenue, at around 5:45 a.m., Thursday.

The vehicle the woman was driving crashed into a nearby neighbor’s yard. There was apparently another vehicle involved in the crash.

The victim’s condition remains unknown.

7News spoke with the homeowner whose fence was destroyed. He said his son woke him up after hearing a loud crashing sound.

At around 6 a.m., his neighbor then called to see if he knew about the damage to his fence.

He said he was shocked but thankful his house wasn’t hit.

“I think the car that hit my house, she hit that black car then she ran into my fence and my neighbor’s fence and she damaged both of them,” he said. “Luckily nothing [else] happened because the concrete stopped her from going further.”

Missouri highway patrol blasts out ‘Batman’ cell phone alert by mistake




(CNN) — The Joker is not on the rampage in Missouri, but it looks like authorities there are ready for the “Batman” villain.

An emergency alert mistakenly sent to mobile devices Tuesday by the Missouri State Highway Patrol asked residents of Gotham City to be on the lookout for a purple/green 1978 Dodge 3700 GT. The sedan, with license plate “UKIDME,” sounds a lot like the cars used by the Joker’s goons in the 1989 Batman movie.

It turns out there is no Gotham City in Missouri, and the message was sent in error during a test — apparently by someone with an impressive knowledge of the vehicles used in the movie that pits characters played by Michael Keaton and Jack Nicholson.

“This was meant to be a test message, THERE WAS NO ALERT,” the law enforcement agency soon posted on social media. Similar errors by other public agencies sometimes have sparked real concern — and also gotten corrected quickly.

Missouri State Highway Patrol had been conducting “a routine test of Missouri’s Blue Alert system” when the message was sent to wireless devices around the state, the agency said in a news release.

“The Patrol regularly tests the Blue Alert system to ensure it works properly when needed. During the test, an option was incorrectly selected, allowing the message to be disseminated to the public,” the release said.

The Blue Alert system is designed to quickly spread information about “violent offenders who have killed, seriously injured, or pose an imminent and credible threat to law enforcement,” according to the highway patrol.

Last year, authorities in Chile mistakenly sent a tsunami evacuation warning following an earthquake. And in 2018, residents and tourists in Hawaii were terrified by a text warning of an incoming ballistic missile that turned out to be a false alarm.
