It’s our ToTaLLy 100% Joshua Rush Exclusive interview...and YES, Piper asked about Cyrus being Disney Channel’s first openly gay or #LGBTQ character on Andi Mack. But, that’s not why we’re keeping this interview long. The reason for the length is Joshua himself! He’s funny, super-smart, sincere, sweet and AwEsOmE to talk to! You really need to stick around for this one, especially if you’re an Andi Mack fan! We’re getting into behind the Andi Mack scenes stuff, Josh’s real life interests and goals stuff, and even Asher Angel’s weird Chipotle order stuff!
BTW, We’re focusing on Andi Mack here, but Joshua has also done a bunch of voice work! He’s Bunga from Disney’s The Lion Guard, Breehn from Clarence, Jeremy Birnbaum from Star Vs. the Forces of Evil, and Toby from The Adventures of Puss in Boots!
Last year we predicted that Andi Mack would be the number one show on kids TV before the show even launched. This year, we predicted that Joshua Rush’s character, Cyrus, was going to be Disney Channel’s first gay character months before it was announced. 2 for 2! Yup, breaking wind….errr….news since 2007. Speaking of 2007…Piper’s Picks turns 10 years old in December! HoLy PiPeRoNi!
As the first and longest running online entertainment news show (for any demographic), we are looking toward the future and to expanding beyond Piper’s Picks. It’s always been about making kids smile through staying high energy and focusing on fun and positive stuff. Thank you soooo much to everyone who watches and interacts with us! We know many of you have been watching since 2007! Some of you started watching in elementary or middle school and are college graduates or even have your own kids. It’s MeGa-surreal, very PiPeRDeLiC and hard to even grasp. Thank you!
You really like reading, don’t you? I mean…you’re this far in. Well, in that case, we recommend reading the other 270 Piper’s Picks episode descriptions and maybe Deadtime Stories: The Witching Game (Nancy Patanski is my personal favorite character in it.😜) 💖PiPeR ReeSe

If you are into time travel, black holes, Einstein, relativity, The Little Mermaid, the speed of light, space stuff, or physics, I think you’ll like this.
I ToTaLLy loved doing this one and can’t wait to see what you guyz think about the mix of the usual style with something MeGa-complex! So, comment below, please…in other “words”… #LMKWYT

So, last September, we released another one of our MeGa-kEwL interviews with Cree Cicchino & Madisyn Shipman. To keep things moving, we saved the face cleaning, fighting off acne and make-up talk for a short & sweet special beauty and skin care insider episode! Yup, you guessed it…THIS is the one! 😃
Cree and Maddie always are full of energy, sparkle and shine! So, I asked them about some of their beauty secrets for keeping their skin looking so pretty. It almost always comes down to how you clean your skin (and drinking water). So, here are their on-set Game Shaker secrets. How to fight acne, keep your skin clean and stay beautiful so your face can match your sparkling personality!
BTW…We haven’t officially launched a beauty & skin care segment yet, but this is definitely something that we’d love to hear from you guys on. We think it might be kind of awesome to get some inside secrets from some of your favorite people on TV. After all, they’ve got pros helping them out on set and teaching them the latest and greatest tricks in how to keep your skin healthy.💖

HoLy PiPeRoNi! We finally made it to the TWiT Studios! TWiT has been a MaJoR-HuGe inspiration behind Piper’s Picks TV since we launched nearly 10 YEARS ago! When we started in South Florida back in 2007, there was no other online entertainment news show. We couldn’t even find anyone else in the entertainment industry on Twitter (including Disney and Nick)! Almost nobody had heard of podcasting. We were playing in a space still only known to techies and geeks. We were there and learned a lot about it from watching Leo Laporte, aka The Tech Guy! Leo took his radio and Tech TV background and created a future model for online broadcasting.
TWiT shows how well produced, professional content can be delivered online and compete with the cable channels and news networks at a very small fraction of the cost (and with much more involvement with viewers). Today, Leo and his team are producing about 20 podcasts per week from TWiT.TV and pulling in 7 million downloads per month. There’s a ton of TWiT content you’ll want to check out. Just type TWiT into Google or iTunes!
We're talking about everything from iJustine and Apple to Minecraft, ColecoVision, publicists, branding and marketing! Oh! BTW, after we toured the TWiT studios, Leo actually asked Piper to join his panel on TWiT! Be sure to check it out: http://piper.tv/s/twit
PPicks Insiders Note: If you really want to go back in time to check out the TWiT episode that motivated us most to launch Piper’s Picks TV, check out This Week In Tech 92, The Tiki Gods (with Jeff Macpherson and Kevin Gamble from the classic podcast, Tiki Bar TV)!

INFO (“I’m the boss…I need the info” - quote courtesy of Dr. Evil):
Plus, we’re breaking down what the Professor can do and how his Stein-O-Matic app works. It’s like a How-To for robots and their human companions. Professor Einstein is super into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (that part is for your teachers and parents). He’s MeGa-PiPeRiFiC.
Hanson Robotics was founded by David Hanson. He used to be a sculptor and consultant for Walt Disney Imagineering. He’s taken his animatronic experience way beyond theme parks and into artificial intelligence.

OK, you Guyz! THIS is probably our most popular blooper of all time! It’s my intro blooper and second interview with the legendary George Takei (aka Captain Sulu from Star Trek). It’s MeGa-fun and Entertaining! That’s why we’re pulling this one out of the 2013 Piper’s Picks Planetary Headquarters archives! It’s THAT funny!
All goes wrong from the get-go! When I tried to do my intro…well, YOU tell me what went wrong! 4 years later, I’m still not sure (and I don’t know if I ever will be). We eventually move on to talking about saving whales, saving turkeys, Tom Hanks, changing history, and voicing a computer (Majel Roddenberry would be so impressed)!
Oh, if you’re not sure about Free Birds (yeah, it sounds like an odd concept for a cartoon), it’s really good and much funnier than you’d ever think! put it on your Netflix list for Thanksgiving!
Let’s get into a little behind the scenes info! George Takei and his partner, Brad Altman are both really nice! Mr. Altman actually came up to me before this interview and said how much he and Mr. Takei liked my first interview from the Larry Crown premiere in 2011. That’s a HuMoNgOiD complement for me! You can see it (the interview, not the complement #teehee) here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ebn0q3UT184
If you’re a fan of George Takei or interested in Asian-American history, definitely check out the PBS special George Takei: Growing Up Asian-American. It’s about the hardships that Mr. Takei experienced growing up in the United States. http://www.pbs.org/wnet/pioneers-of-television/video/george-takei-growing-up-asian-american/

HoLy PiPeRoNi! STEVE CARELL part 2!!!! OK, lemme back up for you guys! Yesterday was the MeGa-AwEsOmE world premiere for Despicable Me 3! It’s the third installment (we’ll count Minions as a separate one) in the most despicable cartoon franchise of them all (you know, in that universe where despicable means ultra-kewl-major)!
If you’ve been watching Piper’s Picks, you probably saw our first interview with Steve Carell! People always ask what celebrities are like in person. Well, Steve is really super genuine and nice, just like he seems like he’d be. So, it’s really great to interview someone like that! Oh yeah, he’s funny too! His alter-ego (or alter egos in this case) are pretty kewl too, even if they are balancing between good and evil.
In Despicable Me 3, Steve Carell is working double-duty playing Gru and his blonde twin brother Dru! There’s a new car too…a despicamobile! They actually had one at the premiere. I sat in it…the security dog sat in it…the other security dog would not sit in it. Anyway, let’s move on. Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures did some really kewl stuff for the big day.
So, as a special bonus and a way to get these interviews out fast, we decided to add on a special extra interview to this episode with one of Gru’s 3 favorite kids, Edith! It’s my first interview with Dana Gaier! Edith is the super-cute middle child who seems to have just a touch of that middle-child syndrome, then ratcheted up some! Wait until you hear how long Dana has been voicing Edith for! Time moves fast! Speaking of…let’s get on with the episode!💖

It’s the double-episode you’ve been asking about! Two Piper’s in one episode! Piper Reese, the secret inspiration behind Henry Danger’s Piper Hart???, interviews…well, Piper Hart. Better yet, Ella Anderson! Ella’s been on a bunch of Disney and Nick shows including Liv and Maddie, Dog with A Blog and A.N.T. Farm. By now, you know her best as Henry’s younger, high energy sister Piper on Nickelodeon’s Henry Danger.
One episode is from this year’s (2017) KCAs…and yes, the relationship question comes up. We wanted to see if she’d spill any info on the #Jaele rumors. This was just before we caught up with Riele and asked a little more directly. Watch this: https://youtu.be/ofzCjyGWWK0
Then, we flash you back to our 2014 set visit to Henry Danger for some background info and a look back at how much Ella has changed since starting the show just a few seasons ago.
Let us know whatchya think guys! 💖

FIRST of all, Major HuMoNGoiD CONGRATS to the Andi Mack cast and crew on the 2ND SEASON pickup (as IF anyone even doubted that one happen)! Number one show, as we predicted, in like every girl-who-can-read demographic through tweens.
So, there we were at Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards 2017 and, not only were Peyton Elizabeth Lee and Asher Angel there too, but so was Sofia Wylie (aka Buffy)! We almost…didn’t release this one because it went a little off course when we were stopped in the middle from singing by someone’s Dad! Almost! (Nope, not that Dad you’re thinking!) We thought we’d have to cut too much out. BUT, Sofia Wylie is so real and MeGa-Sweet every time I see her that we didn’t want to do that. TeamPiper decided to leave the whole Daddus-interruptus in for you guyz to check out. Why! Well, as Roger Rabbit would say…”’Cause it’s funny!!!!”
OK, admitted, this sentence is only here for people who either love reading our descriptions or like not clicking play. Seriously! Go watch! it’s sweet…and cute…and yes, for our old-school PiPeRazzi, it’s very #PiPeRiFiC, baby! Yeah!💖

Lilimar & Brec Bassinger Freaky Announcer Interruption, Knight Squad & Forever Boys with FIYM! WHAT!?
What!? Lilimar and Brec Bassinger are both working on new shows!? Of course they are! I caught up with these two MeGa-AwEsOmE girlies at Kids Choice Awards 2017. Between “the carpet is closing” announcements, we pulled out a fewww details. Yeah, we did some wardrobe talk too!
You all know that Brec moved over from Bella and the Bulldogs to School of Rock where she’s playing Kale. If you haven’t head (which means you haven’t seen this Piper’s Picks episode: https://youtu.be/-XjUg_5ytCE ), Brec has been moonlighting over at Disney Channel! Seriously!? Yes! She filmed a TV movie/pilot with Forever In Your Mind called Forever Boys! The #FIYM boys are playing teen vampires from the 60s who are now in high school, in a boy band, and in modern day times. It sounds a little like JONAS, but with much more of a “bite” to it. Haha! Get it!? Bite!? Ha! (OK, I’m wasting too many bytes on that one. Yeah, I know…🙄).
OK, as for Lilimar! There’s been a little more secrecy about what she’s been up too, but we now know it's called Knight Squad and it's set at a magical school for knights (hmmm...WOWP sounding, eh?)! So, let’s see how all that goes down and get into some fashion talk too! Lilimar is always funny and soooo sweet!
OK! Go…watch…sub…check out the weird interruption from the orange carpet announcer and, yeah…watch!💖

OMG! You guyz will ToTaLLy LOVE this one! We’re on the red carpet at the premiere for Victoria’s new movie The Outcasts and it looks AwEsOmE! Of course, you’ll get the deets on Victoria’s latest role and her reunion with Avan. What!? That’s right! Victoria isn’t the only Victorious actor in this one! Avan Jogia (yup, Beck!) is in it too (and so is Peyton List)! But, there’s a lot more here…like…a MAJOR flashback We’ve got an unseen, on set interview with Victoria at Nickelodeon on Sunset right after the Victorious premiere!
So, I haven’t seen Victoria in like…forever! Our first interview for Victorious was 8 MONTHS before the show even premiered in July 2009! We did two interviews that we’ve kept pretty quiet about in 2010 including one on-set at Nick on Sunset! So, It’s been 7 YEARS…so, you get a double-dose: a brand new 2017 interview with Victoria plus a at 2010 interview that I haven’t even seen since 2010!
So, get ready…watch the episode…go see The Outcasts and then, go back and watch some MeGa-AwEsOmE old-school Victorious episodes. OH! One more thing. YES, we DO have more, unseen interviews with the cast (be sure you caught the recent release with Ariana Grande)! So, stay tooooned! You never know when we’ll dig back into the vault at Piper’s Picks Planetary Headquarters!💖

HoLy PiPeRoNi! It’s The Revenge of Casey Simpson! Casey Simpson ToTaLLy calls out Mace Coronel on Mace’s swag comment from our last KCA interview! Does the hair change get Casey more attention from girls? Who has more swag and how can you have more swag!? That’s a tough one…but Casey just upped the stakes!
It’s always fun to interview Casey and Mace from Nickelodeon’s Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and this time around, things get funnier! Casey has lots of info plus a new movie on the way! Escape from Mr. Lemoncello’s Library sounds AwEsOmE, so watch for that! He’s also sporting a blue and red cast…that he let me sign!
Mace mysteriously brings a little less info to KCA 2017. In fact, we may not have been speaking with the real Mace because he didn’t seem to know exactly what was happening with Dicky Harper on #NRDD, but he did have a theory on Casey’s arm!

HoLy PiPeRoNi! The #HuMoNGoID new Disney Channel show Andi Mack ToTaLLy crushes the field! Terry Minsky returns to Disney for the first time since Lizzy McGuire (which is in our very top tween shows of all time) and we’ve got Peyton Elizabeth Lee (Andi), Asher Dovangel (Jonah Beck), Joshua Rush (Cyrus), Sofia Wylie (Buffy) AND Emily Skinner (Amber) here to talk boys, girls, characters, crushes and on vs. off-screen chemistry!
THIS is precisely what we’ve been hoping to see from Disney Channel. Background? OK! Disney and Nick have long been avoiding what’s called “low concept” shows (see this article on adamfeinsilver.com). Development execs told us following pitch meetings for a show we’re working on (hint) that they only want “high concept” and didn’t want shows with “kids at school or at home.” Weird? YES! We’ve listened to you guys for like…over 9 years…and good low concept shows always work (i.e. Lizzie McGuire, Even Stevens, Girl Meets World!) Maybe it took Terry Minsky to get things back on track. Hmmmm!? Anyway, Andi Mack (aka Andiland) is AwEsOmE! In addition to Terri Minsky, Michelle Manning is on board! Michelle is behind Teen Beach Movie 2 and Disney’s remix of Adventures in Babysitting!
So, we had some special insight (i.e.. the original script) into what was coming…and saw some changes that made the show a fit for Disney. Somehow, they kept all the magic of the original (kept it real) and still made it Disney-style. Let us know if you want us to go into techie details (or if you’ve read this far into the description).
So, we’re NOT giving away the big secret sauce at the end of episode 1! You have to watch! As for why Bex is missing from interview, Lilan Bowden cut out before our round of interviews! We’ve already reached out…and hopefully we’ll be seeing Bex again soon (Piper does have a picture! 😃)
OK, before we spill any more beans…check out the interview…comment…and watch for this show to go really big!

HoLy PiPeRoNi! Girl Meets World Cancelled by Disney Channel? What!? We’ve got info: what Disney may be thinking; the new shows on the way; and 2 of our unreleased interviews with ROWAN BLANCHARD! Seriously! Somehow, TeamPiper had not one, but two interviews stashed away with me talking to Rowan about Girl Meets World (aka El Mundo de Riley), her cast and more from before the show launched!
So, Let’s talk, guys! First, this episode gets into some reasons why Disney might have for canceling Girl Meets World. (Could it have something to do with Andi Mack f.k.a. Andiland, Forever Boys and Raven!?) How long does a series get before cancellation on Disney versus the Networks and other cable stations? Gotchya covered.
Moving on, I’ll get into how I first met Rowan and Sabrina Carpenter. A lot of you have asked about it over the years. You guys saw the first time I met Rowan, but there’s more to fill in! (We actually ended up at the same school for a while between Spy Kids 4 and #GMW.) We went back into the Piper’s Picks archives and saw that Sabrina had reached out to us all the way back in 2011 around the time working on her video for “Fall Apart.” Lots of stuff to cover here guyz! Check it out!💖
