Transcript for Madonna to co-write and direct her own biopic
Good morning, guys. Robin, I see you got the memo. Glad to see we're sporting our fall colors already. And it is feeling like fall this morning as we get right to it. We're going to begin with the material girl writing her own material. That's right. I'm talking about Madonna announcing she's co-writing an original screenplay based on what she calls the untold true story of her own life. Madonna has been teasing this project for a couple of weeks sharing some pictures on Instagram, some videos as well. There you go, of herself working alongside Oscar winner diablo Cody who will write it. Amy who produced her in "A league of their own" on board. No word on who will star in the still untitled film but Madonna will express herself as director, yep. I said it. Also this morning, so many teachers are going above and beyond for their students and we want to share with you this teacher in Texas, second grade teacher using a very catchy song to help her students learn math. Take a look at this. Baby shark, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo daddy shark, doo, doo, doo Another teacher you heard her singing next door. Videoed the lesson which has 20 million views and counting. Telling "Gma" you do whatever it takes to engage kids and one viewer who loved the video wrote, quote, if I had teachers like that I would have paid attention, had fun and gotten better grades. I couldn't agree more. Thanks for sharing that. Then finally it's getting chilly as we said. Here in Connecticut before you know it it will be time to celebrate a holly dolly Christmas. Yeah, that is the name of dolly parton's new holiday album and this morning, she is sharing her second track with us, it is a true Christmas classic. Listen up. I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus underneath the mistletoe last night The classic from 1952 getting dolly's magic touch. Everyone, "A holly dolly Christmas" is set to release in two weeks and two days on October 2nd. I can't believe October is two quarterbacks away. Unbelievable. I'll throw it back to you in the studio. Riva has gotten her hands on our products for "Deals & steals" coming up very soon. All right. Thank you, riva. Always in the mix.
