At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, we got a chance to speak with Emily Whitesell and Eric Wald, the showrunners of the Freeform hit series, Siren. Eric and Emily spoke on a range of issues including doling out story in the larger season and continuing to tell non-traditional relationship stories without judgment.

Today is Red Nose Day and NBC, in particular, is going all out with its programming. From NBC’s website, “Red Nose Day was created by Oscar-nominated and Emmy Award-winning writer-director Richard Curtis, (“Love Actually,” “Four Weddings and a Funeral,” “Notting Hill”) and leverages the power of entertainment to bring the nation together to have fun and make a difference for children in need — here in America and around the world. It has raised over $1 billion globally since its launch in the UK in 1988.”
