It's hump day! And what a day it's been, with all the new information pouring in about James Comey (more on that shortly) and so much more. Read on for a recap of all the news and events you might've missed in this hectic day, from details on the Comey firing to what musical NBC is doing for its next live show:
James Comey + What's To Know
By now, you're likely well aware that President Trump has fired James Comey, the former FBI Director. The full details of what happened and why are still being unraveled, but it's being reported that Comey allegedly requested additional funding for his Trump-Russia investigation just days before his firing. Naturally, that's raised plenty of eyebrows, but Trump claims that Comey's firing came simply because the director "was not doing a good job." Mhm. Maybe Burt Macklin can figure out what really happened?
Donald Glover + Deadpool
This is gonna be cool: Donald Glover has co-created a Deadpool animated series, to debut in 2018. The actor and his brother Stephen, who worked on Atlanta together, will write and co-produce the show, which is set to be as intense and unique as the work they've done together in the past. Who else can't wait to see this?
LOL: The "Bow Wow Challenge" is taking over Twitter, and the posts are so, so good.
Christopher Boykin + A Big Legacy

Save The Date: NBC's next live musical will be... Jesus Christ Superstar. The event will take place on Easter Sunday in 2018.
