Welcome to the weekly bonus episode of Hot off the Wire, where we look back at some of the top headlines from the week in the world of sports and entertainment. 

As always, be sure to check out our latest episode of Streamed & Screened, a podcast dedicated to movies and television. 

This week Bruce Miller and I discuss movies and TV shows that tell true stories. The episode includes an interview Bruce had with Jann Mardenborough, the real-life driver who was portrayed in the movie “Gran Turismo.”

Listen to the latest episode of Streamed & Screened here. 

This week’s top headlines include:

  • ABC is adding NFL football games to fill the void due to the writers and actors strikes. The strikes already led to the postponement of the Emmy Awards, which should have been held Sept. 18. 
  • YouTube suspended Russell Brand from making money off the streaming site following  sexual assault claims.
  • And the Tampa Bay Rays moved a step closer to securing a new stadium in St. Petersburg.

Those stories and more from The Associated Press. But first, Bruce Miller talks about true stories turned into movies during the latest episode of Streamed & Screened.
