Moore, a series written by "La La Land" creator Damien Chazelle, a Kristen Wiig comedy series, See, an epic world-building drama, Home, a docuseries focusing on incredible homes, "Little America," an anthology series from "The Big Sick" creators Kumail Nanjiani and Emily V.

produced by M. Night Shyamalan, known for movies like "Signs," "Sixth Sense," "Unbreakable," "The Village," and "Split."
Yeah, let's just leave out the decade of steaming piles he directed between The Village and Split.

Honestly, if you're going to do that, you should probably leave The Village off as well. And possibly even Signs. Frankly, I don't care how good Sixth Sense was or how redeeming Split was, his track record is abysmal.

It's clear by the continuing careers of M. Night Shamalyan, Tyler Perry, Adam Sandler and Michael Bay that they'll let any idiot make a movie.

I'm not holding out much hope, but I'd like to see the HomePod as a central character.

The only twist ending here is that M. Night still has a career.
