Misc. News not put up yet

This is just an unofficial fan page, we have no connection to any shows or networks.

I get sent LOTS of news by the networks and their PR people. There's only me at the present time to go through the emailed news, post it on the Primetime Forum and then put part of it on our weekly news/schedule pages, so I frequently fall behind.

Here you will find news that I'm behind on putting up. The most recent news is at the bottom! Scroll down to find it first. Older news is at the top. This is somewhat in chronological order, but not all of the info is dated.  Sorry, we do our best!

OUTSIDE TELEVISION GOES THE DISTANCE WITH VOLVO OCEAN RACE

Network to air world’s longest sporting event in a documentary series

WESTPORT, Conn. (Sept. 25, 2014) – Starting this fall Outside Television will once again set sail to the Volvo Ocean Race, the world's toughest sailing event in which the elite of the profession battle it out on the most treacherous oceans. Welcoming viewers to their vision of a world that is 70 percent covered by water and only 5 percent explored, seven international sailing teams of modern Magellans will be profiled in this intimate series.

The world’s longest sporting event, the race is a nine-month marathon on the seas, passing through four oceans and five continents. Since 1973 the race has served as an exceptional test of sailing prowess and human endeavor where the athletes push themselves to the limit of endurance in what is commonly referred to as the ‘Everest of Sailing.’ The network will broadcast the race as a part of its Life at the Extreme documentary series. Starting Monday, October 20 at 10:30 p.m. EST, the Life at the Extreme series will premiere with new episodes every Monday for 39 consecutive weeks. Re-airs of each week’s episode will run throughout the week.

“This is one of the world’s ultimate sporting challenges and we’re pleased to see it return to Outside Television,” said Rob Faris, Senior VP, Programming and Production at Outside Television. “The Volvo Ocean race is a remarkable event and the series captures the real adventure and human drama that unfolds during the nine months of racing.”

Outside Television will also show a full slate of live streaming and online coverage of the race at OutsideTelevision.com that includes digital streaming of the leg starts, in-port races, current standings, news features and live look-ins with the boats.

The race will start from Alicante, Spain, October 4 and finish in Gothenburg, Sweden, June 27 of next year competing over 70,000 kilometers in some of the world’s most hostile and remote environments. Over the duration of the race, the seven race crews experience life at the extreme: no fresh food is taken on board so they live off freeze-dried food. Competitors experience temperature variations from 5 to +104 degrees Fahrenheit and only take one change of clothes with them on board.

The Volvo Ocean Race is the first of several new longform programs to roll out from Outside Television this fall. Faris noted that Outside Television viewers can expect more in-depth looks at world-class events in the future.

SYFY RENEWS DEFIANCE AND DOMINION

FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

BOTH ORIGINAL DRAMAS SLATED TO RETURN IN 2015

NEW YORK – September 25, 2014 – Syfy today announced a third season for its original series Defiance, giving a 13-episode order to the action packed drama, and a second season for the epic supernatural thriller Dominion, which will also consist of 13 episodes. Both series are produced by Universal Cable Productions and are slated to return with all-new episodes in 2015.

Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica, Hellcats) will resume his role as executive producer and showrunner of Defiance while Vaun Wilmott (Sons of Anarchy) will continue to fill the same posts for Dominion.

Season to date, Dominion and Defiance are the top two cable programs in the Thursday 8-10pm time period among P25-54s. With most current Live+7 data, both series are averaging 2.7 million total viewers, 1.2 million viewers 18-49 and 1.4 million viewers 25-54. Drawing an especially engaged social audience, Dominion was the most social drama on Thursdays across all of TV in tweets (15.4K) and tweets per unique (8.0).

Set in the near future, Defiance features an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Redefining the transmedia experience, Defiance has distinguished itself with an unprecedented partnership between Syfy and Trion Worlds, by creating the first-ever true convergence of television and online gaming.

Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), Dominion is an epic supernatural drama set in a transformed post–apocalyptic future, 25 years after an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity. Rising out of the ashes, are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control over the people and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war escalates between the human race and the angels that are hell-bent on destroying humanity. Dominion is produced by Universal Cable Productions and Bold Films.




TV LAND ORDERS TWO NEW COMEDIES, “IMPASTOR” AND “TEACHERS,” TO SERIES

Michael Rosenbaum and Sara Rue to Headline “Impastor” from Christopher Vane, Eric and Kim Tannenbaum

Comedy darlings The Katydids to Star in “Teachers,” Executive Produced by Alison Brie, Ian Roberts and Jay Martel

New York, NY – October 1, 2014 – TV Land has ordered 10-episode first seasons of two new single-camera comedies, “Impastor” and “Teachers,” it was announced today by TV Land President Larry W. Jones. Both series will premiere on TV Land in 2015.

“’Impastor’ and ‘Teachers’ are perfect examples of the type of comedies we’re looking for as TV Land evolves its original series – innovative, unconventional, and hilariously funny for an audience that enjoys smart humor with a hint of heart,” said Jones.

“Impastor,” a single-camera comedy from Christopher Vane (“Wings”), stars Michael Rosenbaum (“Smallville”), Sara Rue (“Less Than Perfect”), Aimee Garcia (“Dexter”), Mircea Monroe (“Episodes”), Mike Kosinski (The Second City Chicago), and David Rasche (“Ugly Betty”). The series revolves around Buddy Dobbs (Rosenbaum), a gambling, pot-smoking slacker on the run from a loan shark, who steals a man’s identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tight-knit town. Though he’s tempted to immediately run off with the pastor’s money, Buddy has a change of heart when he realizes that the people there, including his prim church assistant Dora (Rue), actually like this new and semi-improved alter ego…and he kind of likes them back.

Other officials at Buddy’s new church include Alexa Cummings (Monroe), the gorgeous treasurer that has Buddy rethinking his whole con; Russell Kerry (Kosinski), the young secretary who’s very excited to have a gay pastor; and Alden Schmidt (Rasche), the church president and the only person who seems to be just a little suspicious of Buddy. As Buddy deals with his new life, his bartender ex-girlfriend Leanne (Garcia), has to deal with the huge mess he left behind.

“Impastor” is executive produced by Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum (“Two and a Half Men”). Rob Greenberg (“How I Met Your Mother”) directed the pilot.

“Teachers” revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America’s youth, even though they don’t really seem to have their own lives together at all. From refusing to read fairytales because “sometimes Prince Charming wants to date other people” to hitting on the resident “hot dad,” these teachers are certainly changing the world, one student at a time. The series stars improv group The Katydids - Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas – who also wrote and starred in the web hit that the TV series is based on. In addition to writing for and starring in “Teachers,” they will also serve as executive producers alongside Alison Brie (“Community”) and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel (“Key and Peele”).

Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV also serve as executive producers of “Teachers.”

ENVIRONMENTAL MEDIA AWARDS ANNOUNCE RECIPIENT OF

2014 EMA GREEN PRODUCTION AWARD

Fox Broadcasting Company to Receive Honor at October 18 Gala

LOS ANGELES, CA, October 2, 2014 – The Environmental Media Association (EMA) will honor Fox Broadcasting Company (FOX) with the EMA Green Production Award at the 24th Annual Environmental Media Awards on Saturday, Oct. 18. The award will recognize FOX for its efforts to raise awareness of sustainability issues and funds for various environmental causes via the FOX Fall Eco-Casino Party.

FOX also has achieved remarkable results as a presenter of sustainable events. The FOX Fall Eco-Casino Party kicks off the Fall TV season, while simultaneously raising awareness and funds for environmental causes. Over the past decade, more than a quarter of a million dollars has been raised at these parties. Its wide range of efforts include increasing the use of LED and fluorescent lighting and limiting the use of conventional lighting instruments to reduce power; best efforts for all recycling of paper, cans, bottles and cardboard; composting all waste in food and beverage outlets; utilizing Fair Trade and sustainable food products wherever possible; renting all event furniture, décor, lighting fixtures, linens and napkins; and measuring the carbon footprint to offset all CO2 created by this event, making it carbon-neutral.

In addition, FOX continually works with its partners to encourage them to implement green initiatives. For example, Sweetwater Video Productions, FOX’s main supplier of audio/visual equipment, has changed its entire fleet of trucks to run off more eco-friendly B20 bio-diesel, and it powers its facility with solar power. These types of efforts affect industry-wide events.

Full Press Release:

NEW HIT AUSTRALIAN PERIOD DRAMA

MAKES U.S. PREMIERE ONLY ON ACORN TV

Beginning Monday, October 6th at www.Acorn.TV

Six-part miniseries tells the true, and largely overlooked, stories

of courageous nurses during WWI

Silver Spring, MD – Riding the success of the U.S. premieres of Australian mysteries Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Guy Pearce’s Jack Irish, Acorn TV will be adding the U.S. Premiere of ANZAC Girls, the new hit Australian drama from All3Media International. Recently airing to impressive ratings in Australia on ABC, ANZAC GIRLS is a moving six-part miniseries based on the true and largely unknown stories of five brave Australian and New Zealand nurses at Gallipoli and the Western Front during World War I. Beginning October 6, Acorn TV will debut a new episode every Monday through November 10th. Acorn TV is the first proprietary digital channel from RLJ Entertainment (NASDAQ: RLJE) and is widely considered the premier British TV service in North America. Besides British content, Acorn TV continues to acquire first rate Australian dramas like ANZAC Girls.

Rich in detail and authenticity, ANZAC Girls tells the harrowing but ultimately life-affirming true stories of five unsung heroines of the Great War. Based on the book The Other ANZACS by Peter Rees, and drawing on the original diaries, letters and photographs that passed between the nurses and their lovers, families and friends, as well as on countless historical records, the miniseries is one of the first to be told from the points of view of the courageous nurses from the Australia New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC). The nurses tend to the wounded and maimed soldiers of World War I with their own unique warmth, compassion and humor – bringing a ‘touch of home’ to distraught and damaged men. Despite the shocking hardship of war, they also form lasting bonds of love with the soldiers they care for and lasting friendships with the nurses they work alongside. As these young women put their lives on the line for King and Country, they undergo extraordinary personal journeys, overcoming prejudice, heartbreak and adversity as they play their parts in the theatre of war.

ANZAC Girls stars many up-and-coming Australian actors, including Georgia Flood (House Husbands), Antonia Prebble (White Lies), Laura Brent (Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader), Anna McGahan (House Husbands), and Caroline Craig (Underbelly) as the five nurses.

“We’ve been huge fans of Frank’s work for a long time, and it’s been such a pleasure getting to know Frank himself in the beginning stages of working together on the character of Gabriel,” said Executive Producers Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields. “We look forward to a great season together, and to what we’re sure will be a phenomenal creative collaboration.”
Season 3 of The Americans will premiere on FX in January 2015.

Dallas - Release Date Revealed for The 3rd (and Final) Season of the 2012 Show

TNT's cancelled the rebooted series, but the last season is scheduled for DVD
 We had the heads-up a few weeks ago that Dallas - The Complete 3rd Season is coming to DVD some time in 2015, but Warner Home Video had not provided a specific street date for the title. Now, following the rebooted show's official cancellation a week ago today, Warner has updated the Amazon.com pre-order listing (see button link below) with word to expect the 3rd (and final) season to hit DVD on January 13th.

Note that there are rumors around the 'net that this will be an MOD (manufacture on demand) release, not sold in stores...to the best of our ability to discern, that is NOT true. Warner (and Amazon) has this item marked as a traditional "factory-pressed" DVD release, so you should be able to buy it locally if you prefer. Or you can click on the button links below for Amazon.com and/or the WBshop and pre-order your copy, and have it sent straight to your doorstep (doing that helps to support our site, by the way).

We know that Deleted Scenes are included among the bonus material. What else might be in the extras (if anything else)? We're still waiting on the official Warner press release with the formal announcement of this item. Stay tuned!

Intruders - Press Release and Box Art for 'Season 1' of the BBC Show
Blu-ray Disc and DVD versions will be available near the end of December
From tvshowsondvd.com
" 'Don't Let Them In' reads the show's tagline, but we're happy to have this show intrude upon our Saturday nights..." - Entertainment Weekly
DVD and Blu-ray December 23, 2014
New York; October 15, 2014 - BBC Home Entertainment will release the eight-part suspense series Intruders on Blu-ray and DVD on December 23, 2014. From writer and executive producer Glen Morgan (The X-Files), Intruders is a chilling tale that spins a fascinating and complex web of drama in the moody Pacific Northwest. John Simm (Doctor Who, Life on Mars) and Academy Award-winner Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite, Norma Jean & Marilyn) star in this paranormal thriller about a secret society devoted to chasing immortality by seeking refuge in the bodies of the living. The Hollywood Reporter called the series "...spooky and riveting, a paranormal thriller as addictive as anything on television." The Blu-ray and DVD includes "Inside the Intruders" a special behind-the-scenes look at the series featuring interviews with John Simm, Mira Sorvino, Glen Morgan and more.
As strange, apparently unrelated events start happening, multiple story-lines - a missing wife, an assassin covering his crimes, a child on the run - begin to intertwine to reveal a conspiracy that will forever change our understanding of human nature. The series, based on British novelist Michael Marshall Smith's 'The Intruders,' gave BBC AMERICA its biggest ever Supernatural Saturday series premiere when it debuted on August 23, 2014.
Jack Whelan (Simm), a former LAPD cop with a troubled and violent history, finds the quiet idyllic life he has created with his wife, Amy (Sorvino), shattered when she vanishes. Jack is drawn deeper into the mystery when his high school friend, Gary Fischer (Tory Kittles, True Detective), shows up on his doorstep asking for help with a murder case. Initially dismissive of Gary's claims, the more Jack investigates the more complex and surreal his discoveries become. What Jack uncovers leads him down the dark path of his own past and closer to the terrifying revelations about a secret society known as Qui Reverti.
In order to conceal the truth, an assassin named Richard Shepherd (James Frain, Tron: Legacy, True Blood) is embarking on a series of lethal executions and is in pursuit of a seemingly innocent nine-year-old girl, Madison (Millie Brown, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland) - a run away with a score to settle who could be the end of them all.
With Gary's help, Jack is determined to find and save the wife he loves, at any cost...
Under the direction of Eduardo Sanchez (The Blair Witch Project, Exists) and Daniel Stamm (13 Sins, The Last Exorcism), the creative team includes acclaimed production designer Mark Freeborn (Breaking Bad), and the series has music by Bear McCreary (The Walking Dead). The series is executive produced by Jane Tranter (Criminal Justice, Getting On, Da Vinci's Demons) and Julie Gardner (Getting On, Doctor Who, Torchwood) for BBC Worldwide Productions, Glen Morgan and Rose Lam (The L Word).

ABC Marks Best-Since-Premiere Sunday With “Revenge” At A Nearly 8 Month High
Quick Take for Sunday, November 16, 2014
(Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Ratings)
ABC Grows to Best-Since-Premiere Numbers on Sunday and is Up Year to Year
“Once Upon a Time” Builds Year to Year for its 8th Straight Telecast this Season
“Revenge” Gains 15% in Adults 18-49 to Deliver its Top Rating in Nearly 8 Months
Sunday Night (11/16/14) - ABC Total Viewer and Adult 18-49 Projections
“Once Upon a Time:” Live + 3 = 9.5 million/3.3 rating and Live + 7 = 10.2 million/3.5 rating
“Revenge:” Live + 3 = 8.0 million/2.2 rating and Live + 7 = 8.6 million/2.3 rating
Fast Affiliate Live + Same Day Results:
ABC Sunday Prime (7:00-11:00 p.m. – 6.3 million and 1.9/4 in AD18-49):
Up against a strong Sunday Night Football contest (Patriots-Colts) on NBC and another high-rated NFL overrun on Fox (Packers-Eagles), ABC dominated its Sunday non-sports competition on CBS by 36% in Adults 18-49 (1.9/5 vs. 1.4/4).
Growing week to week in viewers (+5%) and young adults (+19%), ABC scored 7-week highs for a best-since-premiere performance – since 9/28/14. In addition, the Net grew by double digits from the same night last November (5.6 million and 1.4/4 on 11/17/13) in Total Viewers (+13%) and Adults 18-49 (+36%).
“Once Upon a Time” (8:00-10:00 p.m. – 6.6 million and 2.4/6 in AD18-49):
From 8:00-10:00 p.m. against NBC’s Sunday Night Football, ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” (2.4/6) beat Fox’s NFL-fueled comedies in Adults 18-49 (+4% -- “The Simpsons”/”Brooklyn 9-9”/”Family Guy”/”Bob’s Burgers” = 2.3/6) and towered over CBS’ dramas “Madam Secretary”/”The Good Wife” (+71% - 1.4/4). The show marked ABC’s best young adult rating in the 2-hour slot in 6 weeks – since 10/5/14.
“Once Upon a Time” grew from its year-ago telecast (+26%) for the 8th consecutive week in Adults 18-49 (1.9/5 on 11/17/13) and season to date, the ABC drama is trending 13% ahead of the same point last year.
“Revenge” (10:00-11:00 p.m. – 5.2 million and 1.5/4 in AD18-49):
During the 10 o’clock hour, ABC’s “Revenge” built for the 3rd-straight week in Adults 18-49 (+15% - 1.5/4 vs. 1.3/4), hitting a new season high for the series’ top rating in nearly 8 months – since 3/23/14.
“Revenge” continued to produce impressive time period improvement for ABC from the year-ago night (3.4 million and 0.9/2 on 11/17/13) in viewers (+53%) and young adults (+67%).
A note about increasing DVR penetration and year-to-year rating comparisons: Year-to-year rating comparisons based on the Live + Same Day data stream are distorted by the level of DVR penetration in the Nielsen sample, which has jumped up to 49% currently, from 48% at the same point in 2013. More viewers are watching shows on their own timetables, which may not be reflected in the overnight next day numbers. The only truly valid year-to-year comparison would be one based on the Live + 7 Day metric, once those stats are released by Nielsen.

JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED: USA NETWORK’S HIT ORIGINAL SERIES ‘ROYAL PAINS’ GETS GREEN LIGHT FOR TWO NEW SEASONS
Seasons Seven and Eight Will Each Feature Eight All-New Episodes of the Universal Cable Productions Popular Drama
NEW YORK – November 5, 2014 – The doctor is still in! USA Network announced today that it has greenlit two new seasons for the concierge doctor series, ROYAL PAINS. Seasons seven and eight will each feature eight all new episodes. The popular drama, which wrapped its sixth season on September 2, remains a top 10 series on its night, averaging 3.36M total viewers. The series will celebrate its 100th episode in season eight.
The renewal comes on the heels of a season five announcement for the hit legal drama SUITS, which was a top five scripted series in ad-supported cable in all key demos in 3Q, and a season two for USA’s newest entry SATISFACTION, which was among the top 10 new original scripted series in A18-49 for 3Q. Both series are from Universal Cable Productions.
“‘Royal Pains’ remains a staple for fun summer TV viewing, and we are pleased to bring back the series for two additional seasons,” said Chris McCumber, President USA Network. “We’re extremely proud of both the talent and creative team, who, season after season, have brought to life to these relatable and multifaceted stories, which continue to attract a loyal fan base.”
“‘Royal Pains’ was a breakout hit from its first episode and continues to deliver for USA and our studio,” said Jeff Wachtel, President and Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “It’s no easy feat to maintain a real connection with your audience season after season, but Andrew, Michael, Mark, Paulo, Reshma and the rest of team have done that and more.”
For six seasons, ROYAL PAINS has centered on HankMed, a concierge medical practice serving all of the Hamptons. It stars Mark Feuerstein (“Defiance,” “In Her Shoes”), Paulo Costanzo (“40 Days and 40 Nights”), Reshma Shetty (“30 Rock”), Brooke D’Orsay (“Two and a Half Men”) and Ben Shenkman (“Burn Notice”). Over the years, ROYAL PAINS has enjoyed 1.4 million social media fans, with 926K Facebook fans and 464K Twitter followers.
ROYAL PAINS kicked off this past season when Hank (Feuerstein) returned from his world travels with Boris (guest star Campbell Scott) to find that his HankMed family had moved on without him. Hank forged ahead to fit into this new normal, but everything changed when Emma (guest star Willa Fitzgerald) showed up in the Hamptons claiming to be Hank and Evan’s (Costanzo) half-sister. Upon discovering the claim was true, the brothers invited her to stay to strengthen a familial bond, but the reunion was made more difficult when Emma’s desire to fit in led to a number of mishaps.
Elsewhere, Evan and Paige (D’Orsay) both dealt with new obstacles in couple’s therapy but rediscovered their love for each other. Divya (Shetty) struggled to balance motherhood with her job but found herself at odds with Jeremiah (Shenkman), who was furious with her for meddling in a developing relationship. Later, Hank rekindled his relationship with Charlotte (guest star Gillian Alexy), an adventurous blind woman he met during his travels with Boris.
In the season finale, after Boris purchased Hamptons Heritage Hospital, Hank reluctantly accepted the offer to join the board of directors, along with the rest of HankMed. Divya, in the midst of her battle for custody for her daughter, found comfort in the surprise return of Raj (guest star Rupak Ginn), and Emma and Eddie (guest star Henry Winkler) embarked on his book tour together, bringing their family closer than ever.
From Universal Cable Productions, ROYAL PAINS is written and executive produced by Andrew Lenchewski (“UC: Undercover”) and Michael Rauch (“Life is Wild”). Rich Frank (“More”) also serves as executive producer along with Jeff Kwatinetz (“Unstoppable”) and Paul Frank (“Comanche Moon”) from Prospect Park.

TERRY CREWS TO HOST 2015 "TV LAND AWARDS," HONORING "PARENTHOOD," "THE WONDER YEARS," "ALLY MCBEAL," BETTY WHITE, AND DONNY AND MARIE OSMOND
The Late Joan Rivers To Be Honored In First Awards Show Tribute To Her Life And Career
"TV Land Awards" Tapes Saturday, April 11th In Beverly Hills And Airs Saturday, April 18th At 9pm ET/PT
New York, NY – April 2, 2015 – It’s the ultimate celebration of TV! TV Land announced today that the "TV Land Awards" will be hosted by Terry Crews ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine," "World’s Funniest Fails"), one of the most versatile performers of TV and film. This year’s awards will honor the most creative, popular and loved stars and series, including "Parenthood," "The Wonder Years," "Ally McBeal," Betty White, who will receive The Legend Award, and Donny and Marie Osmond, who will be accepting the Pop Culture Award. The late groundbreaking comedian Joan Rivers will also be honored with a special tribute. Presenters and more honorees will be announced in the coming week. The ceremony will tape on Saturday, April 11th at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills and air Saturday, April 18th at 9pm ET/PT on TV Land with simulcasts on Nickelodeon and NickMom. Viewers can follow the night on @tvland on Twitter with the hashtag #TVLA.
"Parenthood" is receiving the Fan Favorite Award, a salute to a series that is considered an All-American classic and much-loved by its fans. The drama series – based on the movie of the same name – just wrapped its sixth and final season on NBC, and tells the story of the Braverman family as they face life’s triumphs and struggles. Confirmed to be at the "TV Land Awards" include series stars Lauren Graham, Craig T. Nelson, Peter Krause, Bonnie Bedelia, Erika Christensen, Miles Heizer, Sam Jaeger, Savannah Paige Rae, Max Burkholder, Tyree Brown, Sarah Ramos, Xolo Maridueña and executive producer Jason Katims.
"The Wonder Years" will receive this year’s Impact Award, which honors shows that have made a significant impression on American entertainment and culture. The Emmy®-winning ABC series revolved around a young boy, Kevin Arnold, who narrated the story of his family and friends growing up in the late 1960s and early 1970s – one of the most revolutionary social time periods in American history – from his now-adult perspective. Series stars Fred Savage, Danica McKellar, Josh Saviano, Olivia d’Abo, Jason Hervey and Alley Mills will be in attendance.
"Ally McBeal" will be honored with the Groundbreaking Award, given to a series that sparked conversation about cultural issues. The comedy-drama, which ran on FOX from 1997 to 2002, revolved around Ally, a successful lawyer with a sloppy personal life that only gets crazier when she starts working with her childhood sweetheart Billy…and his wife. The series was known for braving the subjects of sexual politics in the workplace and gender norms with its eccentric yet loveable characters, combining heartfelt drama and silliness. Executive producer David E. Kelley, along with stars Calista Flockhart, Peter MacNicol, Lisa Nicole Carson, Gil Bellows and Courtney Thorne-Smith will be accepting the award with more cast members expected to join.
Receiving The Legend Award this year is Betty White. With a show business career that spans over 70 years, Betty White is widely regarded as a national treasure and one of America’s sweethearts. After her big break in TV with the 1949 variety show "Hollywood on Television," she went on to appear in over 100 television shows and films, including those that gave her her most beloved roles – "The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "The Golden Girls," and most recently, TV Land’s "Hot in Cleveland." White won seven Emmy® Awards in her career, the most recent in 2010 for her hilarious turn on "Saturday Night Live." She also won two consecutive Screen Actors Guild Awards® for her portrayal of Elka on "Hot in Cleveland," and was honored with the Guild’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010.

Hart, known for his raw and unfiltered comedy, joins the star-studded line-up for this year's show, including host Amy Schumer, "Trailblazer Award" recipient Shailene Woodley and confirmed presenters Miles Teller, Reese Witherspoon, Vin Diesel and Sofia Vergara.
Hart made his comedic debut during an amateur night at a Philadelphia comedy club and was instantly hooked. He quit his job as a shoe salesman and began performing full time. In 2011, during the "Laugh At My Pain" comedy tour, Hart sold out the Nokia Theater two nights in a row breaking the record previously set by Eddie Murphy.
With his passion for stand-up, Hart continues to tour the country to sold-out audiences and has grown his empire to include box-office hits including: Ride Along, The Wedding Ringer, Think Like A Man, The Five Year Engagement, Little Fockers, Fool's Gold, Death at a Funeral, Along Came Polly and The 40 Year Old Virgin. His latest movie, Get Hard, with Will Ferrell opened this weekend. On television, Hart has been equally as successful as executive producer of the show "Real Husbands of Hollywood," along with other television credits that includes his most recent role as Roast Master for the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber.
This year's "Movie Awards" nominees span every film genre from dystopian universes (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 and The Maze Runner) to heart-felt coming of age stories (The Fault In Our Stars and Boyhood), out-of-this-world comedies (Guardians of the Galaxy, Neighbors, The Interview, The Wedding Ringer and Top Five), real-life heroes (Selma and American Sniper) and more. Fans will witness epic match-ups between the likes of Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt taking on funny-men Chris Rock and Kevin Hart for "Best Comedic Performance," Rosario Dawson battling it out with Jason Sudeikis, Jonah Hill and Seth Rogen for "Best WTF Moment," Meryl Streep and J.K. Simmons vying for "Best Villain" and Zac Efron defending his 2014 title for "Best Shirtless Performance" against the beautiful Kate Upton and teen heartthrob Ansel Elgort.

NEW ULTIMATE CHALLENGE SERIES “BULLSEYE,” HOSTED BY KELLAN LUTZ, TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, MAY 27, ON FOX
Comedian Godfrey Tapped to Co-Host
BULLSEYE, an exhilarating one-hour unscripted challenge series, hosted by Kellan Lutz (“The Legend of Hercules,” “The Twilight Saga” franchise), premieres Wednesday, May 27 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. From Endemol Shine North America, the producers of “Wipeout” and “Fear Factor,” BULLSEYE will challenge four men and four women to test their bodies and brains in three ultimate challenges that ask nothing more than for them to hit the BULLSEYE – literally. Comedian Godfrey (“The Godfrey Complex”) will serve as co-host.
Watch/Share a preview of BULLSEYE here: https://youtu.be/-8TKypv1eE0
BULLSEYE’s fierce “weekend warriors” will participate in three levels of extraordinary challenges, all of which involve using their bodies like human darts to hit targets – on land, sea and air. As the rounds advance in this fun-for-the-family summer series, only those with the sharpest aim move forward. The first challenge finds the eight competitors vying to hit the center of a stationary target while leaping from a moving 18-wheeler, being pulled by a helicopter or acting as a human slingshot being projected hundreds of feet through the air. In round two, the remaining four competitors – two men and two women – race to hit as many targets as possible. These competitors may be aiming for targets while descending down a building or jumping between two racing speedboats. In the third and final challenge, the remaining three competitors race against the clock to conquer the ultimate test and hit the final BULLSEYE.
The competitors’ ability to defy gravity and the laws of physics, while maintaining their focus, could mean the difference between going home empty-handed …or up to $50,000 richer.
“I am a huge fan of extreme sports, and for me, nothing beats an adrenaline rush, which is why I am so excited to host this series,” said Lutz. “I love the concept of physicality and strategy combined with the most awesome challenges that will blow your mind. I am looking forward to watching these competitors push themselves out of their comfort zones and I’ll be on the sidelines cheering them on, and probably wishing it were me trying to hit the BULLSEYE!”
Kellan Lutz most recently starred in the feature films “The Expendables 3,” “The of Legend of Hercules” and in the worldwide phenomenon “The Twilight Saga” franchise. He will next be seen starring opposite Bruce Willis in the action feature “Extraction.” Lutz began his acting career as a series regular on the cable series “The Comeback,” opposite Lisa Kudrow. He was also seen in the network series “90210,” “Heroes” and the award-winning cable miniseries “Generation Kill.” When not acting, Lutz is an avid enthusiast of extreme sports. Born and raised in North Dakota, Lutz had a simple upbringing but learned to live every day to the fullest. From sky diving to parasailing, from motor cross to white water rafting, he has always approached life as an adventure. Lutz also gives his time to three charities: Saving Innocence, PETA and the St. Bernard Project.

Each judge can hit the Golden Buzzer only once for an act they think has what it takes to win America’s vote. Live performance shows will premiere Tuesday, Aug. 11 (8-10 p.m.).
A new version of boot camp will shake things up this season, beginning Tuesday, July 14 (8-10 p.m. ET). Each week, one judge will receive a special advantage over the others in determining which acts become part of the Top 36 to perform live for America’s vote.
To celebrate a decade of talent, “AGT” will also debut a two-hour special featuring the best acts of the series, the most heartwarming stories, the oddest personalities and the biggest show-stopping moments from the last 10 years.
Tickets are available now for the final audition tapings, April 6-8 and April 10-11 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Calif. www.nbc.com/tickets
