Watch The Cook-Off! Trailer

Reality-show shenanigans mix with the true-life fiery-and-fierce world of competitive baking in the deliciously sly mockumentary Cook-Off! As a buffet of quirky contestants prepare for the renowned Van Rookle Farms Cooking Contest, the heat is on to win a one million-dollar prize.

The filmmakers follow them as the foodie media and celebrity judges descend on a hotel convention area to see which contestants rise, which ones fall, who will reveal their true nature, and who will find love with the contest’s costumed Muffin Man mascot.

Costarring a cast of improv geniuses including Melissa McCarthy, Ben Falcone, Stephen Root, Diedrich Bader, Wendy McLendon-Covey, Gary Anthony Williams, and Sam Pancake, the zesty Cook-Off! is an affectionate nod to ordinary Americans who believe they’re one dollop of spray cheese away from achieving their dreams.

Cook-Off will be released on November 17, 2017.

Read An Exclusive Excerpt From Stephen King & Owen King’s Sleeping Beauties

“You cannot believe how nice it is to have somebody that you raised come to you and say: ‘Let’s work together,’ ” said Stephen King, who has previously collaborated with his older son Joe on two books.

For their first joint effort, he and Owen dreamed up Sleeping Beauties (out Sept. 26), a horror tale set in a remote Appalachian town where women lie down to sleep and never awaken, their bodies shrouded in gossamer webs. And as their sons and husbands and brothers soon learn, disturbing those mysterious cocoons comes with consequences.

Harry Potter – A Journey Through A History of Magic 

Harry Potter: A History of Magic is the official book of the exhibition, a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between Bloomsbury, J.K. Rowling and the brilliant curators of the British Library.

It promises to take readers on a fascinating journey through the subjects studied at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry – from Alchemy and Potions classes through to Herbology and Care of Magical Creatures.

Each chapter showcases a treasure trove of artifacts from the British Library and other collections around the world, beside exclusive manuscripts, sketches and illustrations from the Harry Potter archive. There’s also a specially commissioned essay for each subject area by an expert, writer or cultural commentator, inspired by the contents of the exhibition – absorbing, insightful and unexpected contributions from Steve Backshall, the Reverend Richard Coles, Owen Davies, Julia Eccleshare, Roger Highfield, Steve Kloves, Lucy Mangan, Anna Pavord and Tim Peake – who offer a personal perspective on their magical theme. Readers will be able to pore over ancient spell books, amazing illuminated scrolls that reveal the secret of the elixir of life, vials of dragon’s blood, mandrake roots, painted centaurs and a genuine witch’s broomstick, in a book that shows J.K. Rowling’s magical inventions alongside their cultural and historical forebears.

This is the ultimate gift for Harry Potter fans, curious minds, big imaginations, bibliophiles and readers around the world who missed out on the chance to see the exhibition in person. Harry Potter: A Journey Through a History of Magic will be published by Scholastic on October 20, 2017.
