With so many true crime and horror shows and movies dominating the big and small screen, it’s no wonder Hollywood producers can hardly keep up. This fall alone we’ve already seen a slew of new horror programming that have been announced on streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime. There’s a new one, however, headed our way and we’re legit anticipating this more than anything.

Netflix has announced a new series partnership with Guillermo del Toro  called “10 After Midnight.”

The show will be anthology series and Netflix is calling it a “new genre-defining” show, which means it’s beyond scary.

“Creator and executive producer del Toro will bring his own visionary style as both a writer and director to certain episodes,” Netflix said in a statement. “In addition, he will hand pick a team of the genre’s best writers and exciting new filmmakers to bring his selection of stories to life.”

Netflix says the series will be “personally curated stories” picked by del Toro “that are both equally sophisticated and horrific.”

Aside from collaborating with his producer from “The Shape of Water” for this Netflix project, del Toro will also “bring his own visionary style as both a writer and director to certain episodes.” So you know it’ll be extra freaky.

If you’re wondering what del Toro can bring to Netflix, please consider what he has already done.

Del Toro is the mastermind of films such as “The Devil’s Backbone” (2001), “Pan’s Labyrinth” (2006), “Blade II” (2002), “Hellboy” (2004) and “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” (2008). He also worked on the science fiction monsters-versus-robots film “Pacific Rim” (2013). Did we forget to mention the 2017 Academy Award-winning film “The Shape of Water”? Might as well prepare to be stuck to your couch.

Netflix has yet to announce a release date for this series.

The Charlotte Hornets Will Be The First Team In The NBA To Have A Full Time Latino Coach

In another first for the NBA, a Latino has been named a full-time head coach for the first time in league history. The Charlotte Hornets gave James Borrego the reins as head coach. This is a first for the league in the 72-year history. The 40-year-old coach was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His coaching career started in 2001 as an assistant for University of San Diego and then made the leap to the NBA as an assistant for the San Antonio Spurs in 2003.

James Borrego joins a select group of Latinos to ever be named head coach in the NBA but the first to ever be an external full-time hire.

Dick Versace, head coach of the Indiana Pacers from 1988 to 1990, and Earl Watson, who coached the Phoenix Suns from 2015 to 2017, were both of Latino descent but were only given interim coach titles. Borrego’s resume speaks for itself as he has amassed 15 years of experience in the NBA as well as an interim head coach run in 2015 for the Orlando Magic.

“He has been a part of teams that have ascended to the highest levels of success in our league and understands what it takes to win in the NBA,” Mitch Kupchak, General Manager of the Charlotte Hornets told the official team website. “James is considered one of the NBA’s most well-regarded assistant coaches and it’s great to have him as part of our team.”

Borrego’s hiring is positive news for the NBA as the number of Latino players have decreased.

The number of Latino players in the NBA decreased from 6.3 percent in 2015-16 to 4.9 percent during the 2016-17 season according to the 2017 Racial and Gender Report Card: National Basketball Association. The NBA has paved the way for coaches before as Bill Russell in 1966 became the first non-white and African-American head coach in the NBA after the Boston Cetics hired him. Erik Spoelstra became the NBA’s first Asian-American head coach when the Miami Heat promoted him in 2008.

Many are cheering for this landmark moment for Latinos in the NBA.

For the NBA, this isn’t just another hiring but a moment to acknowledge the growth and expansion of the league and how far Latinos have gone to make an impact in the sport. Good luck to James this season and I’m sure all Latinos will be cheering for his continued success in the NBA.
