A Visit to Camp Kikiwaka: On the Set of Disney Channel's BUNK'D

Having attended "camp" several times as a kid (for Boy Scouts & church), there was a strange familiarity stepping onto the set of BUNK'D at Hollywood Center Studios last month. Along with 24 other familiar writers from the pop culture parenting space, I entered Camp Kikiwaka and took a seat inside a mess hall/lodge to meet the kids from the principal cast. A spin-off of the ever-popular JESSIE (which has come to a close after four seasons), there's some familiar faces in Peyton List (Emma Ross), Karan Brar (Ravi Ross) and Skai Jackson (Zuri Ross) as siblings sent from New York City to Maine (Cameron Boyce is now over on GAMER'S GUIDE TO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING) - an adventure that finds them as Counselors-in-Training at the very camp where their parents first met. Rounding out the cast are Miranda May (Lou), Kevin Quinn (Xander), Nina Lu (Tiffany) and Nathan Arenas (Jorge).


Empire Reveals Three New Looks at BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE

If there wasn't a certain film called STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS set for release this December, I'd try using my time-shaper to fast-forward right to March 25, 2016 to see my two favorite superheroes battle it out on the big screen. See, BATMAN v. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE has me conflicted, if only because SUPERMAN was my favorite superhero during my religious reading of comic books in the 1980s... but then Tim Burton's 1989 BATMAN film bumped the caped crusader into the top spot, where he's forever remained. Personally, I believe it's because my own personality is closer to that of BATMAN and his alter-ego, BRUCE WAYNE... but knowing that they'll be going head-to-head is still a weird thing - but one I look forward to. Today, EMPIRE Magazine unleashed a trio of new images that will be featured in their September issue (get it here). Take a look...


UNBOXED: Netflix Stream Team DRAGONS RACE TO THE EDGE Special Edition

Netflix #StreamTeamAdventure. Being parents of two little girls, adventure is something we witness daily - fueled by the kind of imaginative space that we only wish we could re-live. To be a kid and be able to view the world as an infinitely big space filled with mystery is something that I miss, but seeing the girls have those experiences is something to behold. The Netflix Original Series DRAGONS: RACE TO THE EDGE (set in the world of HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON) is all about adventure, too - and as a member of the Netflix #StreamTeam, a mystery box recently arrived here at Rock Father HQ... and guess what? It's contents were all about adventure, and they led to a special edition episode of UNBOXED for #RockFatherTV. Check this out...


Exclusive: Talking the Musical Genesis of Disney's DESCENDANTS with Director Kenny Ortega

When I found out that I'd get to spend some time with filmmaker/choreographer Kenny Ortega on one of my recent visits to Los Angeles, I was pretty excited. The Director of NEWSIES, HOCUS POCUS and HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL actually helmed the film that was the very first Blu-ray I personally bought after beginning my format switch - the 2009 documentary musical, MICHAEL JACKSON'S THIS IS IT. I may not mention it often, but Jackson has been a big influence in my own musical life, so it was fitting that THIS IS IT was my first Blu-ray purchase, as THRILLER was the first album I remember asking for on vinyl. Ortega's connection to "The King of Pop" not only as a Director, but as a Choreographer, was not the reason for our meeting, however... it was all about his latest work, Disney's DESCENDANTS.
