  • ABC BRINGS ISRAEL’S TOP RATED REALITY SERIES “RISING STAR” TO U.S. FROM KESHET DCP
    Set For Summer 2014 - ABC has ordered 10 episodes of the highly sought-after Israeli format “Rising Star” from Keshet DCP, the joint venture between Keshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of dick clark productions (dcp). Keshet DCP was formed to leverage Keshet’s globally successful unscripted business with DC Media’s expansive U.S. infrastructure and production expertise. The singing competition for ABC will mark the company’s first foray into the market since its formation in October. The show is slated for Summer 2014.
    “Rising Star,” produced by Tedy Productions for Keshet Broadcasting, made a record-breaking debut on Israel’s Channel 2 this fall and keeps breaking records with a 49.4 percent share, having almost half of all TV audiences tuning into the show. The show has far outperformed all second screen data ever recorded in Israel, with a participation rate 10 times higher than previous shows, and is maintaining high ratings and conversion rates (viewers to second screen participation) of over 30 percent.
    The format has already sold to numerous territories, including France, Germany, Italy and Russia, and interest continues to grow worldwide, with ABC beating out several competitors for the U.S. market.
    “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as--for the first time ever--the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances. During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition. If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.

  • DISCOVERY CHANNEL IN DEVELOPMENT WITH LIONSGATE ON MINI-SERIES NORTH AND SOUTH
    --Lionsgate to Produce New Original Mini-Series Chronicling Antebellum America and the U.S. Civil War –
    Discovery Channel announces today its order to development of the network's next scripted mini-series, NORTH AND SOUTH, based on the trilogy of North and South novels by John Jakes, the bestselling author who mingles the lives of historical personages and strong characters, and involves them in the great events of the U.S. and world.
    NORTH AND SOUTH will tell the epic story of two families – the Hazard family, northern factory owners from Pennsylvania, and the Main family, southern plantation owners. The story begins when lead characters George Hazard and Orry Main meet as young men at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. The Hazard and the Main families become close, brought together in bonds of friendship and affection that neither jealousy nor violence can shatter.
    At a time when great technological advancements were made and social and political groups worked for anti-slavery legislation as well as women’s equality, the economic foundation of the country began to rapidly change. Spanning three generations and chronicling the lives and loves of two great family dynasties, NORTH AND SOUTH shows the vastly different ways of life for the Main and Hazard families which threaten to drive them apart, fracture marriages and poison sibling relationships. They are put to the ultimate test as fathers, sons, brothers and friends fight each other on the battlefields of the deadliest war America has ever seen.
    NORTH AND SOUTH is a co-production between Discovery and Lionsgate. John Jakes is represented by Joel Gotler of IPG and Frank Curtis of Rembar & Curtis. Jakes will also serve as an executive producer on the project.

  • E! News Exclusive: The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Find Out Which Ladies Are Returning for Season 7
    All six stars of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are set to return for the upcoming seventh season, E! News has exclusively learned.
    A source confirms to us that despite the ladies' differences, and rumors that at least one cast member would be out, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, and NeNe Leakes all will return to the Bravo reality hit.
    Season six drew to a dramatic close when Kenya and Porsha got into a heated exchange at the RHOA Reunion, with a source at the time telling us it was "highly doubtful" that both would return to the show.
    Now, however, a source tells us that Porsha and Kenya are currently finalizing their contracts, along with their four costars.
    There was also speculation that Nene, who recently competed on Dancing With the Starsand has guest-starred on Glee, might also leave the show, and she recently opened up about the pros and cons of being one of Bravo's peaches.
    "For me, It's like a blessing and a curse. It has definitely opened up so many doors and opportunities for me. I have been able to do some of everything just from being on this platform," she explained. "But at the same time, it can be very negative and very draining and all of things. But also, it can put a lot of money in my pocket. Not just the show, I'm saying, other things come to you."
    Filming for the seventh season will begin soon, with the new season likely premiering in November.
    And with all six ladies back on board, you just know it's gonna be the best kind of TV insanity. Win.
     

  • E! NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Scandal: I'd Love Bill Clinton to Be on the Show, Says Series Creator Shonda Rhimes
    Bill Clinton certainly knows a thing or two about scandals, so don't you think he'd be the perfect guest star on Scandal?
    While series creator Shonda Rhimes says she's not that into real-life politician stunt casting, she'd make an exception for the former president.
    "That's not really our thing, but I will say, 'Bill Clinton, if you're out there, we would love to have you…We would always love to have you," Rhimes told me last night at Women In Film's Crystal + Lucy Awards, where she presented Kerry Washington with the Lucy Award for Excellence in Television.
    At the same time, Rhimes isn't too sure Bill would want to run in Olivia Pope's circle of friends, lovers, enemies and every person in-between.
    "There are always interesting politicians out there who would be interesting [to have on the show], but our show is a very heightened, very dark view of Washington," Rhimes said. "I don't think really Bill Clinton or any of those people belong in our Washington."
    Maybe not, but how awesome would it be to see Olivia go up against Bill?
    Washington revealed last year that Clinton apparently watches the show.
    "Bill Clinton was another person where I was like, ‘What?! You watch Scandal?!'" Washington told Entertainment Weekly. "I feel like it happens at least once a week—that I am totally floored by somebody who watches the show."
    Olivia Pope is based on D.C. crisis manager Judy Smith, whose client list once included—gulp!—Monica Lewinsky.

    LOS ANGELES – June 11, 2014 – Esquire Network announced today that it has greenlit production on new original series, CAR MATCHMAKER. The 13 episode series is hosted by comedian Spike Feresten and executive produced by Ellen Rakieten of Ellen Rakieten Entertainment, a division of Relativity Television. CAR MATCHMAKER is slated to premiere Fall 2014 on Esquire Network.
    In each half hour episode of CAR MATCHMAKER, Feresten finds a guy in need of a car, gets to know him, and then draws upon his two decades of expertise and instinct to find three different cars perfectly suited to the buyer. At the end of each episode, a car is chosen. Whether it’s someone looking to reconnect with a car from their past, a guy lusting after the muscle car of his dreams, or the father of triplets searching for a manly “dadmobile,” Spike doesn’t pick the expected car - but he always picks the perfect one.
    “Spike has been his friends’ go-to car buying guy for years, and his passion for and knowledge about cars is truly remarkable," said Matt Hanna, Head of Original Programming, Esquire Network. "There’s definitely a lot of fun to be had with the format and the material in this new series, and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with Spike, Ellen and her outstanding production team at Rakieten Entertainment.”

  • ZENDAYA TO STAR AND PERFORM IN LIFETIME ORIGINAL MOVIE AALIYAH: PRINCESS OF R&B (WT)
    Based on the Bestselling Book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman, Film Chronicles the R&B Superstar’s Rise to Fame and Tragic Death
    Los Angeles, CA (June 16, 2014) – Platinum-selling recording artist Zendaya (Shake It Up!, Dancing with the Stars) will portray Aaliyah in a Lifetime Original Movie about the life of the actress and R&B sensation who, at the height of her stardom, tragically died in a plane crash. Zendaya will record four of Aaliyah’s songs for the film, including many of her hit singles. Based on the bestseller Aaliyah: More Than a Woman by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher Farley, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B (wt), the first movie about the beloved artist, will be filmed this summer and premiere in the Fall.
    Before Beyonce and before Rihanna, self-proclaimed “street but sweet” Aaliyah was poised to become a global icon with top-selling albums, a hot movie career and an adoring fan base. But behind the spotlight, Brooklyn-born, Detroit-raised Aaliyah Dana Haughton struggled to succeed in a tough business while staying grounded in the midst of her growing celebrity. The film follows the beautiful and talented performer’s inspirational journey, from her debut on Star Search at the age of ten to the challenges she faced during her rise to become the Princess of R&B. On August 25, 2001, at the height of her popularity, her life was tragically cut short when a plane carrying the singer and some of her video crew crashed after takeoff from a Bahamian runway. Although just 22-years-old at the time of her death, Aaliyah continues to lead a legacy as Billboard’s tenth most famous R&B artist of the past 25 years and one of the recording industry’s most successful artists in history.

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Jan. 19, 2014 — NBC has given a 10-episode straight-to-series order for “Emerald City,” a reimagining of the classic Frank L. Baum books that have inspired everything from “The Wizard Of Oz” to “Wicked.”
    Based on the 14-book series that first created the wonderful – and treacherous – Land of Oz, “Emerald City” is a dramatic and modern reimagining of the tales that include lethal warriors, competing kingdoms, and the infamous wizard as we’ve never seen him before. A head-strong 20-year-old Dorothy Gale is unwittingly sent on an eye-opening journey that thrusts her into the center of an epic and bloody battle for the control of Oz.
    Writer Matt Arnold and Josh Friedman will serve as executive producers. Universal Television is the production company.
    NBC is also ordering eight episodes of the miniseries “The Slap,” based on the critically-acclaimed Australian project of the same name that aired in 2011.
    Written by Jon Robin Baitz (“The West Wing,” “Brothers & Sisters”) and also produced by Universal Television, “The Slap” is a complex family drama that explodes from one small incident where a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. This seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets, and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it.
     

  • NBC ‘PETER PAN LIVE!’ TAKES MUSICAL FLIGHT DEC. 4 ON NBC
    Executive Producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron Return to Produce the Live Broadcast of a New TV Version of James M. Barrie’s Revered Musical
    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — Jan. 19, 2014 — On the heels of the very successful airing of “The Sound of Music Live!” in December, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt announced today that the network will present a new television production of the classic musical “Peter Pan” as a live telecast on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014.
    Multi-award-winning producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced “The Sound of Music Live!” will again executive produce the production. Casting is currently on a fast track.
    “The Sound of Music Live!” that starred Carrie Underwood averaged a phenomenal 5.6 rating in adults 18-49 and 22 million viewers overall in the live-plus-7 totals from its Dec. 5 telecast.
    “We’re very pleased to be underway on ‘Peter Pan’ as our next live holiday musical for the whole family,” said Greenblatt. “We were all delighted to see how ‘The Sound of Music Live!’ struck such a chord in December and brought nearly 19 million people to the live telecast plus another several million viewers over the weekend. In the hopes that lightning strikes twice, we think we’ve landed on another great Broadway musical — which ironically also starred Mary Martin — that is a timeless classic for all audiences, young and old, who just never want to grow up.”
    "We’re thrilled to be reteaming with NBC and Bob Greenblatt in bringing ‘Peter Pan’ back to its roots as a live television event,” said Zadan and Meron. “We hope to create the joy that has made this musical so beloved. We would like a whole new generation to experience ‘Peter Pan’ and for families across the country to share the magic."
    The original Broadway production of “Peter Pan,” directed and choreographed by Jerome Robbins and featuring the iconic songs “I’m Flying,” “I’ve Gotta Crow,” “I Won’t Grow Up,” and “Never Never Land,” opened on Broadway in 1954. The show had a book by J.M. Barrie and a score by Mark “Moose” Charlap & Carolyn Lee, with additional songs by Jule Styne & Betty Comden and Adolph Green.

    UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. — March 31, 2014 — NBC has given a straight-to-series 13-episode order for the drama “Aquarius,” starring two-time Golden Globe Award winner David Duchovny in his return to broadcast television.

    LOS ANGELES, CA; JULY 21, 2012 -- PBS announced today that THE ROOSEVELTS: AN INTIMATE HISTORY, a new seven-part, 14-hour documentary by Ken Burns, will air in 2014 on PBS. The film weaves the stories of Theodore, Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, three members of one of the most prominent and influential families in American politics. The series marks the first time their individual stories have been woven into a single narrative.
    “The Roosevelts have played significant roles in other stories we’ve told before, from the National Parks to World War II,” said Burns. “It’s impossible, in fact, to visit many parts of the American experience without encountering their presence. But beyond simply sharing a bloodline or political success, they each shared a passionate belief that America is at its strongest when everyone has an equal chance. And on a personal level, they each struggled to overcome their own fears while maintaining a public face of courage.”
    THE ROOSEVELTS follows the family’s story for more than a century, from Theodore’s birth in 1858 to Eleanor’s death in 1962. Over the course of those years, Theodore would become the 26th president of the United States, and his beloved niece, Eleanor, would marry his fifth cousin, Franklin, who became the 32nd president. Together, they redefined the relationship Americans had with their government and with each other, and redefined, as well, the role of the United States within the wider world. The series encompasses all the history the Roosevelts helped to make — the creation of National Parks and the digging of the Panama Canal, the New Deal and the defeat of Hitler, and the postwar struggles for civil rights at home and human rights around the world in which Eleanor Roosevelt played a central role. But it is also an intimate human story about love and betrayal, family feeling and personal courage and the conquest of fear.
    “In THE ROOSEVELTS, Ken delves into these three larger-than-life figures in a way that’s never been done before, exploring not only the characteristics that made them such tremendously influential and strong leaders, but also their interpersonal relationships and human, vulnerable qualities,” said Paula Kerger, president and CEO of PBS. “It’s a wonderful story and we’re very excited to present it to our viewers.”
    Legendary actress Meryl Streep portrays Eleanor Roosevelt in readings from her personal letters and writings. Of her performance, Burns said, “As we’ve seen time and time again, Ms. Streep is a magician. Here, she completely transformed herself into Eleanor Roosevelt, simply through her voice. It was remarkable to witness. The entire cast delivers what I consider to be some of the finest voice-over work we’ve ever been fortunate enough to present.”
    Joining Streep are Paul Giamatti as the voice of Theodore Roosevelt and Edward Herrmann, two-time Emmy Award nominee for his performance as Franklin Roosevelt, as the voice of FDR.
    Rounding out the cast are Patricia Clarkson, Adam Arkin, Philip Bosco, Keith Carradine, Kevin Conway, Ed Harris, John Lithgow, Josh Lucas, Carl Lumbly, Amy Madigan, Carolyn McCormick, Pamela Reed, Billy Bob Thornton and Eli Wallach.
    THE ROOSEVELTS is written by longtime Burns collaborator Geoffrey C. Ward, who is an authority on Franklin Roosevelt. The author of two biographical volumes, A First-Class Temperament and Before the Trumpet, he is also the editor of Closest Companion, which revealed for the first time Roosevelt’s close friendship with his distant cousin, Daisy Suckley. Ward’s interest in FDR grew in part from the fact that he, like FDR, is a polio survivor.
    In addition to THE ROOSEVELTS, Burns’s THE DUST BOWL will air on PBS on November 18 and 19, 2012. THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE, which recently premiered at the Cannes Film Festival, will air in 2013 or 2014.

  • Michael Bay's 'Black Sails' Gets Early Second-Season Renewal at Starz
    The pirate drama will premiere in January, with production resuming in November 2013 for a second run of 10 episodes.
    More than five months before its series premiere, Starz has granted an early second-season renewal to pirate drama Black Sails.
    The Michael Bay-produced drama will premiere in January, with production on a second season of 10 episodes resuming in November 2013, the premium cable network announced Friday at the Television Critics Association's summer press tour.
    Launching in 2014, the eight-episode first season follows Captain Flint (Toby Stephens) and his men two years before the story of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island takes place. Described as a brilliant and feared pirate captain, Flint takes on a fast-talking addition to his crew, John Silver (Luke Arnold). They fight for the survival of New Providence Island, an infamous criminal haven teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by ideals and brutality.
    The series was created by Jonathan Steinberg (Jericho) and season-two executive producer Robert Levine (Touch). The drama had a major presence at San Diego Comic-Con. The network used the pop culture confab to screen the pilot at a fan-only event outside of the convention center. The series also had a massive pirate ship on the convention floor.
    "Michael Bay, Jon Steinberg and their teams delivered a spectacular first season of Black Sails, and we are incredibly proud of everyone's work," Starz CEO Chris Albrecht said. "Based on the strong fan response to the preview screening at last week's Comic-Con, we felt an early order for a second season would allow the writers, cast and crew enough time and space to continue crafting such unique and epic storytelling."
    For Starz, the early renewal marks a sign of confidence in the series, which films on elaborate sets in South Africa. The network previously has granted early second-season orders to shows before their series premieres, most recently for Kelsey Grammer starrer Boss.
    The series joins a roster that includes Ron Moore's Outlander, Fortitude and the second season of Da Vinci's Demons. The network is in development on a slew of original dramas including recently announced series Power, from Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson, as the network looks to ramp up its scripted programming by 50 percent in 2014.

  • TBS Greenlights The CeeLo Life (working title)
    Unscripted Series to Follow Five-Time Grammy Winner through Hectic Schedule,
    Including Reunion with Legendary Hip-Hop Group Goodie MOB
    Chart-topping, Grammy-winning recording artist, entrepreneur and pop culture iconCeeLo Green is coming to TBS in the brand new show The CeeLo Life (working title). TBS has ordered six episodes of the unscripted series, which will follow CeeLo as he tackles not only a packed schedule of producing, recording and performing, but also a creative partnership with his longtime best friends - Big Gipp, Khujoand T-Mo - as they prepare to bring their legendary hip-hop group Goodie Mob back to the world stage.
    Set to premiere on TBS in 2014, The CeeLo Life is being produced by Emerald TV Productions, LLC and Rogue Atlas. CeeLo is executive-producing the series with Larry Mestel (CeeLo Green is Loberace), Emerald's Andrew Jameson (Living Lohan) and Rogue Atlas' Eli Frankel (Family Trade).
    The CeeLo Life follows world-renowned recording artist CeeLo Green into the next stage of his career, which is ironically a blast from the past. After a long hiatus and the explosion of CeeLo's solo music career, CeeLo now wants to share his success with the best friends with whom he started. Together, they are now bringing their legendary hip-hop group Goodie Mob back into the spotlight with their fifth album, Age Against the Machine, which is set to be released on Aug. 27. They also have a successful Las Vegas headlining gig and an international tour on the horizon. To enjoy this ride of a lifetime, all they have to do is navigate a demanding schedule, the perks and temptations of being at the top of the music game, and twenty years of history together, all while still keeping their friendship intact.
    The Goodie Mob revival, however, is just one of the many creative projects on CeeLo's plate. He recently completed a run of performances in the musical spectacular Loberace at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. He's also putting the finishing touches on his fourth album, which is slated for release later this year, and will be seen in the movie Can a Song Save Your Life?, starring Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo and Catherine Keener. And as if that wasn't enough, he is a partner in Emerald TV Productions and serves as Chief Creative Officer for his management company, Primary Wave.
    Update: This is now called "The Good Life" and premieres June 23.

When Charlie (Vanessa Ferlito) tries to get close to her, she discovers that Amber is much more than she bargained for.
    Morgan starred in HBO’s “True Blood” as the werewolf “Debbie Pelt. ” She also had guest roles on “Desperate Housewives”, “Southland”, “Two & Half Men” and “Shameless.” Morgan is repped by Innovative Artists and David Dean Management

Sometime in the future

  • NBC Buys ‘Wizard Of Oz’ Drama From Matt Arnold As Frank Baum’s Classic Becomes The Hottest TV Property This Season
    EXCLUSIVE: A century after the release of L. Frank Baum’s Wizard Of Oz series, the books have become the toast of this TV development season. NBC just nabbed Emerald City, an Oz-themed drama from Siberia creator/showrunner Matthew Arnold. Two weeks ago, CBS put in development Dorothy, a medical soap inspired by the characters and themes from The Wizard of Oz. I hear there is another Oz drama making the rounds from Heroes alums Adam Armus and Nora Kay Foster, with Heroes creator Tim Kring supervising. And just last month, Syfy picked up for development a miniseries titled Warriors Of Oz from director Timur Bekmambetov, a fantasy-action reimagining of the classic story. The great interest in Wizard Of Oz is not entirely unexpected as the title has been getting a lot of attention in conjunction with the upcoming 75th anniversary of the classic 1939 feature, which will include a 3D re-release of the Judy Garland starrer. It also comes on the heels of the success of Oz The Great And Powerful earlier this year.
    Emerald City, which Arnold is writing and executive producing through Universal Television, is described as a dark reimagining of the classic tale of Oz in the vein of Game Of Thrones, drawing upon stories from Baum’s original 14 books. Following the success of the 1900 The Wonderful Wizard Of Oz, Baum wrote 13 sequel novels. Emerald City reunites Arnold with NBC, which acquired his mystery drama series Siberia that had been financed independently and sold internationally before finding a U.S. home on NBC as a summer series. Arnold wrote and directed the pilot and the season finale. He also co-wrote three additional episodes and directed seven of the first season’s 13 episodes. Arnold, repped by ICM Partners, David Engel at Circle Of Confusion and attorney Jennifer Levy, recently wrote and directed the supernatural thriller feature Shadow People.
     

  • Dynasty Set To Return on Big Screen
    TV Series Creators Plan Movie Reboot
    Somewhere in the world there is an episode of Dynasty airing right now.
    More than 30 years after its creation, the iconic nighttime soap opera still resonates with audiences, so show creators Richard and Esther Shapiro are following the trend set by the big screen remakes of series like Sex and the City, The A-Team, Charlie’s Angels, Starsky & Hutch and the planned 21 Jump Street film by rebooting Dynasty as a new film franchise.
    “The time is right,” said Esther Shapiro, co-creator of the series with her husband Richard. “Nostalgia has always been big, but we want to take it a step further. We want to go back to the beginning with these characters and use the film to trace their roots. We’re taking Blake Carrington back to his young manhood and when he met Alexis, and setting the movie in the Mad Men era of the 1960s. It will give us the opportunity to start fresh, without the constraints that television placed on our characters in the series.”
