When the TV show ‘The Lamps’ goes on hiatus, a new way to celebrate it’s return
The Lamps is a Netflix original series from creators Michael Moore and Bill Hader that explores the power of television to illuminate the world around us.
The series was created by Moore, who also directed episodes of HBO’s Girls, The Sopranos, The Wire, and more.
Moore, a longtime Hollywood producer, is best known for his films such as the 2001 film The Departed, which was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Picture.
Moore has also made a career off the screen, having written and produced numerous films for films such The Social Network and The Theory of Everything.
Now, in a bid to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show, Netflix is planning to air new episodes of The Lamp, starting with the series premiere on April 17, 2019.
“The Lamp” will be a special, Netflix exclusive on April 16, 2019, to mark 10 years since the series debuted.
“It’s a little surreal, the fact that it’s a new episode that I’ll be able to watch,” Moore told Business Insider.
“I don’t know what it is, but it’s pretty neat.
I think it’s kind of an opportunity to celebrate 10 years, a chance to celebrate that show in a very special way.”
In addition to Moore, the series will also include a new cast member.
The cast of The Lamp includes the late Emmy Award winner Margo Martindale, who played the mother of the main character in the show; Lola Rose, who starred as a former TV producer and now runs a clothing company; and actress Emily Mortimer, who plays Lola’s daughter.
The Laps is a project of Netflix, and Moore said it’s part of the company’s mission to make the internet the best place to see and do what you love.
“This is the kind of world where we think the internet can become a platform for everything from music to storytelling,” he said.
“We believe that the internet is the greatest way to do all of those things and we’re excited to continue exploring it as a platform.”
The LAMP will be available to stream starting on April 13, 2019 and will also be available for purchase via Netflix Originals.
Moore said the idea behind the series was to bring the series back to life, but with the advent of streaming services like Amazon Prime and Hulu, it felt like the perfect time to take it to the next level.
“When you think of television, you think about the story and what happens, and the action and the twists and turns,” he explained.
“But that’s not what we were trying to do.
We wanted to make it a show where you could watch and not watch.
You could watch the show and then have the whole world watch it.”
The series will debut on Netflix on April 15.
The next season will be released on Netflix in 2019.
