Jordan E Cooper × The Ms. Pat Show

OBIE Award-winning, 26-year-old trailblazing creative Jordan E. Cooper serves as the showrunner, creator and executive producer for the highly anticipated BET sitcom “The Ms. Pat Show.” The 10-episode series will debut August 12 on BET+.

The R-rated sitcom is filmed in front of a live audience and based on Patricia “Ms. Pat” Williams’ stand-up comedy and memoir. Created & executive produced by Jordan E. Cooper and Ms. Pat, this grown folks comedy follows a former convicted felon turned suburban mom as she tries her best to navigate family, her comedy career, and a new all-white neighborhood.

Recently chosen to be one of OUT Magazine’s “Entertainer of the Year,” Cooper starred in a sold out run of his play Ain’t No Mo’ which was a New York Times Critics’ Pick. Last year, Cooper created a pandemic centered short film Mama Got A Cough, which was featured in National Geographic and named ‘Best Of 2020’ by The New York Times.  He was also featured on the final season of FX’s critically acclaimed, award-winning television series POSE as “MC Tyrone.” Cooper also founded his own production company Cookout Entertainment- a platform for television and film work that centers community, conversation, celebration, and liberation.

Friends: The Reunion

The One Where They Blew Up Social Media

 Friends Reunion Generates 7.4 Billion Engagements, Talkwalker Says

The Friends Reunion show, slated to start streaming on HBO Max, has generated 2.8 billion mentions and 7.4 billion engagements in the last week alone, according to international enterprise listening company Talkwalker.

Ranking by mentions of Friends cast alongside the reunion

           •   Lisa Kudrow 15K

           •   Jennifer Aniston 12.3K

           •   Courteney Cox 10K

           •   Matthew Perry 9K

           •   David Schwimmer 7.5K

           •   Matt LeBlanc 7.4K

The most mentioned celebrity appearances in the forthcoming reunion show include BTS, Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga.

Demographically it’s almost an even split of who’s talking about the show with 50.3 percent female and 49.7 percent male, Talkwalker reported.

Interestingly, self-described artists are making up 12 percent of the conversation, with

18-24s the largest cohort discussing the reunion online at 48.4 percent of the total, followed by 25-34s at 41.9 percent. So Gen-Z is talking about this more than Millennials, who grew up with the show.

The most excited fanbase for the reunion, as for many things, is Korean super-group BTS. Their posts about their appearance on the show are generating the most engagement.

As a fun aside, the phrase “the one where they” has seen 15K mentions, a huge uptick, over the last month, and in the last week especially, as fans prepare for the show. 

One of 2020’s key social media trends was nostalgia, which continues to be apparent in 2021 as evidenced by reunions and spin-offs like this Friends reunion.  Talkwalker’s Media & Entertainment Report give more details about Friends, along with Fuller House, Sex & the City and Seinfeld/Curb Your Enthusiasm.
