April Fools’ Day on the Internet: Bronx Zoo Cobra, James Franco, and So Much More

Animal Planet just sent us a press release announcing that the Bronx Zoo Cobra will get her own show, Snake on the Town:

With never-before-seen footage, the cobra’s home movies, photography and an exclusive interview with confessionals, the candid special will offer the real story behind the cobra’s escape and solo adventures through New York City. The special also will highlight the cobra’s meteoric rise to fame and her interactions with the city’s elite including Mayor Bloomberg. During her brief time away from her enclosure, the cobra has exchanged tweets with several Hollywood A-listers, including Ellen DeGeneres, Jon Favreau and Steve Martin.

“We’re looking for raw, untapped talent,” says Marjorie Kaplan, president of Animal Planet and Science Networks. “We have a triple threat on our hands. @BronxZoosCobra is relatable, audacious and venomous, and you don’t turn your back on a snake like that!”

“I’d really like to do a talk show like The Soup where I make witty and sssarcastic comments about other animal shows,” explains @BronxZoosCobra when asked about her asp-irations. “The possibilities are endlesss.”

FX released the first trailer for its new series, The Aurors. Ever wanted to hear Harry Potter and “Viewer Discretion Advised” in the same breath? July 31 is your lucky day, as you get to see an older Harry battling dark wizards in the post-Voldemort world.
