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!

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 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.

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.


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.”

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.

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.

Currently, “Tosh.0” is in its sixth season and premiered on June 4, 2009. It features razor-sharp humor and biting commentary from comedian Daniel Tosh.

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 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 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 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).

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
" '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).

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.

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.

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.

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.

Presented by late-night funny man Jimmy Kimmel, the award will honor Hart for his bold and irreverent comedic style that has captivated audiences from his movies and sitcoms, to stand-up specials, award show performances and in front of packed arenas of fans. The first recipient of the award was Hart's Get Hard co-star, Will Ferrell, in 2013.
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.

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:
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.

Enhanced Boot Camp Round, Golden Buzzer and Two-Hour Series Retrospective on Tap for Upcoming Season
NEW YORK – April 2, 2015 – “America’s Got Talent,” NBC’s hit reality-competition series, announced today new features and surprises to celebrate its 10th anniversary season, premiering Tuesday, May 26 (8-10p.m. ET). New features will include an enhanced Golden Buzzer, bigger and more extreme acts, new elements in the boot camp round of auditions and a two-hour series retrospective.
To accommodate acts that are simply too big for the theater, “AGT” will bring the show outdoors to showcase some of the biggest and most dangerous acts to ever audition. Similar to the acts in theater, the extreme contestants, filmed at the Fairplex in Pomona, Calif., will be subject to the judges’ dreaded “X” buzzers.
This season’s Golden Buzzer will send an act from the audition stage directly to the live performance shows at Radio City Music Hall. 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.
The only competition show open to all ages and all talents, “America’s Got Talent” stars host Nick Cannon and judges Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howard Stern. Last summer, “America's Got Talent” remained the #1 summer show in total viewers for the ninth consecutive year. For the first time in the show’s history, America chose a magician as their winner: Rhode Island native Mat Franco, who will star in two upcoming NBC primetime specials that will capture Mat as he prepares to open his own show in Las Vegas at the LINQ Hotel & Casino. Along the way Franco will perform magic for big-name celebrities and for his family, friends and everyday Americans who helped make his dream come true.

THE KNICK: THE COMPLETE FIRST SEASON "Fascinating!" - The New York Times

- Modern medicine had to start somewhere. In the hit Cinemax drama series The Knick, from executive producer Steven Soderbergh (who directed all ten episodes), brilliant surgeon John Thackery (Clive Owen in a Golden Globe-nominated performance) pushes the boundaries of medicine, morality and race relations in 1900 at a downtown NYC hospital known as The Knick.

In The Knick, while Dr. Thackery searches to solve a plethora of medical mysteries and develops an unhealthy addiction to cocaine, which was legal at the time, the fate of The Knickerbocker Hospital hangs in the balance. Thanks to the influence of rich patrons like Cornelia Robertson (Juliet Rylance) Thackery is paired against his will with a young black doctor, Algernon Edwards (André Holland), whose intelligence and at-all-costs methods rivals Thackery's, and who is hired over Thackery's protégé, Dr. Everett Gallinger (Eric Johnson). Other supporters of Thackery at the hospital include Dr. "Bertie" Chickering Jr. (Michael Angarano), a young surgeon secretly in love with nurse Lucy Elkins (Eve Hewson), who is drawn to Thackery; Sister Harriet (Cara Seymour), who runs the foundling hospital and maternity ward; Herman Barrow (Jeremy Bobb), the Knick's crooked superintendent, awash in debt and willing to risk The Knick's future to pay it off; and Tom Cleary (Chris Sullivan), the ambulance driver who will stoop to the lowest depths to bring the right kind of patients to The Knick.

Showcasing the early days of one of the most honored and beloved shows in television history, the DVD set will feature episodes from the program's first five seasons...unseen by the public for more than 40 years!
Following the company's enormously successful 2012 release of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW: ULTIMATE COLLECTION featuring the best of Seasons 6-11, THE LOST EPISODES will feature original, uncut episodes from Seasons 1-5, hand-picked by Carol herself. The iconic variety show's first five seasons have been unseen since their original airing (1967-1972) and included in this highly-anticipated collection will be the show's inaugural episode, the first performances of many of Carol's most famous sketches (including the debuts of "As the Stomach Turns," "Carol and Sis" and "The Old Folks"), legendary guest stars, and show-stopping musical numbers.
You'll see the magic of the Carol's cast come together, plus an incredible array of guest stars including Carol's hero, Lucille Ball, along with Bob Newhart, Don Rickles, Phyllis Diller, Jonathan Winters, Joan Rivers and many more!

Benjamin Bratt stars in this
CANNES, FRANCE (May 21, 2015) – Broad Green Pictures announced today the U.S. acquisition of Brad Furman’s adaption of THE INFILTRATOR. Purchased during the Cannes International Film Festival, the studio plans to add the film to their growing slate for 2016.
Adapted by Ellen Brown Furman based on the autobiography by Robert Mazur, Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) directs an all-star cast headlined by Emmy® and Golden Globe® winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad, Argo), alongside Diane Kruger (Inglourious Basterds), Golden Globe® nominee John Leguizamo (Chef), Benjamin Bratt (Traffic), Yul Vazquez (Captain Phillips), and Academy Award® nominee Amy Ryan (Gone Baby Gone). THE INFILTRATOR is produced by Good Films’ Miriam Segal, with Bank Leumi, Good Films and LipSync co-financing.
Based on the true story of a fearless operative, THE INFILTRATOR is a heart-stopping account of one of history’s largest and most elaborate stings. Set amidst the lavish excess of the 1980’s, THE INFILTRATOR tells the story of undercover US Customs agent Robert Mazur (Cranston) AKA Robert Musella, who became a pivotal player for drug lords cleaning their dirty cash. He traded on mob connections to become the confidant to scores of the international underworld, and the bankers who enabled them. Laying his life on the line, he infiltrated the globe’s largest cartels and discovered just how deep into society their influence extended. The operation reeled in key players in a chain stretching all the way to Escobar. Their arrests would lead to the collapse of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International, and shake the underground economy to its core.
“I’m thrilled to be partnering with Broad Green Pictures” Furman stated. “This project was truly a labor of love for all involved, and I can’t wait for Broad Green, whose passion for film is unparalleled, to bring THE INFILTRATOR to a wide audience.”

The Bold Ones: The Protectors - Leslie Nielsen Stars in 'The Complete Series' on DVD
Hari Rhodes co-stars in this Timeless/Shout! release coming in September
The Protectors stars Leslie Nielsen as Sam Danforth, the deputy chief of police in a volatile California city. He is a conservative law and order type who is brought in from Cleveland to try to keep the lid on, but often is at odds with the city's idealistic, liberal black DA, William Washburn played by Hari Rhodes.
The Bold Ones series were well known for being some of the best television ever produced; bringing together highly skilled craftsmen to create programs that were a cut about the rest and The Protectors was no exception.
The pilot movie, "Deadlock," was produced by William Sackheim ("The Law") and directed by Lamont Johnson ("That Certain Summer"), Emmy winner Daryl Duke ("Payday," "The Senator") directed three of the six episodes, Vilmos Zsigmond ("Close Encounters of the Third Kind") was the cinematographer, bringing a big screen look to the series, and top notch guest stars including Edmond O'Brien, Charles Aidman, James Broderick, John Rubinstein, Robert Drivas and Louise Sorel pumped up the stories with a powerful dramatic flair.
The lack of background music, the soundtrack just being the din of the city and offices where it took place, really grounded the show with a realism that was unmatched at the time.
Long before he was a funny cop in 1982's Police Squad! series or its Naked Gun spin-off film franchise, Leslie Nielsen took police work seriously as "Sam Danforth" in 1969's The Bold Ones: The Protectors - The Complete Series, coming to DVD September 15th from Shout! Factory-owned Timeless Media Group.
Earlier this year Shout!/TMG announced another series from the "umbrella program" NBC ran beginning in 1969, The Bold Ones, with the upcoming release (two weeks from today) of the complete series of The Senator. Now they're announcing a follow up, with the complete series of The Protectors, a 2-DVD set running $34.99, that's available beginning September 15th.

Hill Street Blues - The Next-to-last Season of the Classic Cop Show is Coming to DVD
Dennis Franz (NYPD Blue) joins as 'Lt. Bunz' in these 'Season 6' episodes
Join the heroic men and women of the Hill Street precinct in the fantastic sixth season of Hill Street Blues, the groundbreaking series created by Steven Bochco (NYPD Blue, L.A. Law) and Michael Kozoll that rewrote the television cop genre with a mix of gripping, dramatic realism and is universally hailed as one of the greatest programs in the history of television.
Combining gritty realism and surprising humor to document both the personal and professional challenges of the officers and detectives who protect and serve, the sixth season of Hill Street Blues continued the series' tradition of high-quality, compelling television. With top-notch writing, directing, and ensemble acting (from cast veterans Daniel J. Travanti, Veronica Hamel, Bruce Weitz, Joe Spano, Betty Thomas, Robert Prosky and Dennis Franz appearing as Lt. Norman Buntz), the sixth season of Hill Street Blues maintained the program's dominance as one of the greatest television series of its time, and further solidified its place as one of the all-time finest.
Originally broadcast on NBC in the 1985-86 season, these twenty-two episodes represent some of the finest television programming of their - or any other - era, and remain as vital and gripping today as when they first aired!
The next-to-last season of the show gets an individual season set release from Shout! Factory on September 8th when stores will put out copies of Hill Street Blues - Season 6 for DVD. This 5-disc set will cost $34.99 SRP, and includes closed captioning. Let's do it to them before they do it to us. Let's go do our jobs.

UP Greenlights its First Dance Pilot: “DANCIN’ THE DREAM”
Docu-Series Follows Eight Aspiring Young Dancers – Aged 9-15 – As They Train with Top Hip Hop Dancer/Choreographer Kiki Ely
Featuring Pop Sensation Singer/Songwriter Leona Lewis’ New Hit Single “Fire Under My Feet” and Singer/YouTube Sensation Jade Novah’s Upcoming Single “Blood, Sweat & Tears”
ATLANTA – June 18, 2015 – UP announced today it has greenlit its first-ever dance docu-series pilot, “Dancin’ the Dream." The series will follow eight diverse, highly-talented, young aspiring stars as they go through grueling dance classes to perfect their craft, and reveal the sweat, desire and emotion that goes into their intense training, along with its impact on relationships with family, friends and each other. Production is currently underway in Atlanta– “Hip-Hop's center of gravity,” according to The New York Times – on two half-hour pilots produced by Crazy Legs Productions, which produces the new hit series “The Prancing Elites Project” and “Dance Crash.” The debut episodes of "Dancin’ the Dream," which feature pop sensation singer/songwriter Leona Lewis’ hit single “Fire Under My Feet” and singer/YouTube sensation Jade Novah’s upcoming single ““Blood, Sweat & Tears,” are slated to premiere exclusively on UP in Fall 2015.
“For anyone who has ever wondered how top performers like Bruno Mars and Christina Aguilera got to where they are today, this series will help answer that question through a new generation of immensely talented, hopeful stars," said Amy Winter, EVP and General Manager, UP. "Dancin’ the Dream' will give viewers a true sense of the effort that goes into becoming a 'star,' the sacrifices that must be made, and relationships and bonds that grow or suffer along the way. As the leading network for compelling content for you and your family, we are proud to unveil ‘Dancin’ the Dream' as the latest example of our commitment to produce original series that move and entertain."
"Dancin’ the Dream" follows eight of the hottest young dancers, ranging in age from 9 to 15, as they train in every genre imaginable with top Hip Hop dancer and choreographer, Kiki Ely, at her Atlanta-based studio, “ATL Takeova.” She and her assistant, BeeJay Harris, a professional dancer for 12 years, offer the kids Master Dance Classes and prep them for a variety of entertainment auditions and professional engagements, ranging from film and TV to music videos and concert tours in Atlanta – a city on the cutting edge of dance and choreography.
Each episode of "Dancin’ the Dream" will follow one or two of "Ely's kids" as they juggle their family lives, schoolwork and professional dance training. At times, the kids will work as a team on special performances, booked gigs or in competition against other dance studios. Other times, they’ll be asked to compete against each other for one coveted spot in a show. Ultimately, Ely and Harris have forged these kids and their parents into “a band of brothers” who work together to achieve their dreams. The stakes are high, as most of these families fully support their kid’s shot at the big time.
But no matter what the assignment, the kids, their parents and mentors will come together at the end of each episode for a final, jaw-dropping performance. The high-energy, exuberant performances may include a sudden flash mob for a charity event, a reinterpretation of a famous dance performance, dancing backup for a celebrated singer, or a music video that highlights an up-and-coming artist.

NEW YORK, June 24, 2015 – Aliens are invading Comedy Central as the #1 brand in comedy is expanding its animation offerings by ordering “Jeff and Some Aliens” to series, it was announced today by Kent Alterman, President, Original Programming, Comedy Central.

International Co-Production, From Big Talk (U.K.) and Shaftesbury (Canada), to Premiere on U.K.’s ITV Encore in Spring 2016, followed by Canada’s Global
Series Hails From Executive Producers David Titcher, David Hoselton and “House” Creator and Executive Producer David Shore; Stephen Hopkins Joins as Series Director
Michael Weston (“House,” “Six Feet Under”) and Stephen Mangan (“Episodes”) have been cast in the lead roles of HOUDINI & DOYLE, a mystery adventure drama series scheduled to debut in Spring 2016 on ITV Encore and in 2016 on FOX. Inspired by true events, HOUDINI & DOYLE will draw heavily on the rich history of the period. Two great men of the 20th Century – Harry Houdini (Weston), master magician, escape artist and paranormal debunker; and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (Mangan), prolific writer, creator of “Sherlock Holmes” and paranormal aficionado – grudgingly join forces with New Scotland Yard to investigate unsolved and inexplicable crimes with a supernatural slant.
Also joining the cast is breakout Canadian actress Rebecca Liddiard (“Man Seeking Woman”) as “Constable Adelaide Stratton,” whose character is the first female constable ever to work for the London Metropolitan Police Force.
The 10-episode drama was commissioned straight to series for ITV Encore in the U.K., and by Global in Canada, and licensed in the U.S. on FOX. Acclaimed director Stephen Hopkins (“24,” “Californication”) will direct the series.
“I’ve long been intrigued by both Houdini and Doyle; men who were ahead of their time, each fascinating in their own right. But the idea that these two, seemingly so different, could have been friends is almost too perfect,” said executive producer David Shore. “In Michael and Stephen, we have found two incredible actors that embody the intelligence, humor and mystique of these men who, even when viewed through the lens of history, are larger than life.”

truTV's Impractical Jokers Head to San Diego for the Museum of Impractical History
Activations to Celebrate Season 4 of the Hit Series and the Return of New Episodes Thursday, July 16, at 10pm ET/PT
The stars of truTV’s hit hidden-camera series Impractical Jokers are headed to San Diego for the opening of The Impractical Jokers Museum of Impractical History, a specially curated exhibition that will be open to the public during Comic Con International from Thursday, July 9 until Sunday, July 12. Q, Murr, Joe and Sal will be present at various times throughout the exhibition, which will feature fan-generated artwork and show artifacts from some of the most legendary moments in Impractical Jokers history. It'll be like Planet Hollywood, but funnier.
The museum, housed within the Michael J. Wolf Fine Arts gallery, is located at 363 5th Avenue at the corner of J Street in San Diego. It kicks off at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 9 with a “Don’t Go Hungry on the Way to the Con” activation which will supply visitors with a complimentary Impractical Jokers-themed breakfast (Murr-ito anyone?) until noon, then beginning at 4 p.m., fans will be offered bite-sized snacks after a long day of panels, before closing at 7 p.m.
“Instead of waiting for the Smithsonian, MoMA or the Getty Center to finally launch a wing dedicated to the art of daring your best friends to embarrass themselves in public (seriously, what’s taking so long?), we decided to create the Museum of Impractical History ourselves to celebrate four successful seasons of the show and to give something back to the viewers who’ve been so supportive,” said Raymond Dooley, Vice President of Marketing at truTV. “We can’t wait for Sal, Q, Murr and Joe to invade San Diego and personally thank and reward their biggest fans with exclusive Impractical Jokers experiences just days before new episodes begin airing July 16.”
Throughout the exhibition, fans will have an opportunity to experience themed activations each day that they will recognize from popular Impractical Jokers moments, including portraits from caricature artists, spray paint tattoos chosen randomly by a spin from the Wheel of Doom, and an interactive photo booth that will put fans alongside The Jokers. A full list of activations can be found below.
Additionally, on Friday July 10 from 3 p.m. – 5 p.m. visitors to the museum will be treated to an Impractical Jokers comic book signing with Q, Sal, Joe, and Murr. The comic book, The Secret Origin of truTV's Impractical Jokers, is a reissue from a limited partnership run with DC Comics Entertainment and features an original story and new imagery from the series.
Impractical Jokers’ fourth season returns with new episodes on truTV on Thursday, July 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Fans who visit the museum will also be given access to a free iTunes download of the mid-season premiere. In each episode, Q, Murr, Joe and Sal compete to embarrass each other in a series of hilariously humiliating challenges and outrageous dares, all to the amusement and consternation of the general public. At the end of every episode, the biggest loser must endure a punishment of epic proportions. They have to say it. They have to do it. You have to see it!

truTV's THE CARBONARO EFFECT, returning for season 2 on Wednesday, July 29th at 10:00pm ET/PT
SEASON 2 PREMIERE: "Just Made History" – Wednesday, July 29, at 10pm ET/PT
After successfully convincing the public to believe the unbelievable, magician Michael Carbonaro is back with unexpected tricks that will astound and amuse audiences in a second season of truTV’s breakout hit series The Carbonaro Effect. The hidden camera series will premiere on Wednesday, July 29, at 10 p.m. ET.
This season, Michael slips into a wild range of roles from baker to beautician and casts his unique brand of magic on everyday, unsuspecting people in various locations and situations. Whether it’s hitting golf balls that suddenly hatch live birds, instantly cloning babies or shrinking a luxury yacht into a toy boat, The Carbonaro Effect will blow your mind, beguile you and leave you wanting more.
In the season two premiere, Michael poses as a healthy hipster at a farmers market, stunning customers with a special spigot that keeps an endless supply of juice flowing from fresh fruit. Then, things become a bit blurry at the eye doctor when patients start seeing double. Plus, while working at a science lab, the discovery of a shape shifting alien species sends Michael’s co-worker into a frenzy.

The trailer for season 2 of the Netflix Original Series BoJack Horseman is here!
BoJack is back for a second season with a B.N.A. (Brand New Attitude). The darkly hilarious, serialized animated adult comedy BoJack Horseman will premiere twelve (12) new episodes only on Netflix on Friday, July 17, 2015 at 12:01am PST in all territories where Netflix is available. BoJack Horseman Season 1 is now streaming on Netflix.
Will Arnett voices BoJack, the legendary 90's sitcom star, who has been trying to find his way through a muddle of self-loathing, whisky and failed relationships. Now starring in his dream movie (a biopic of Secretariat), but humbled by the events of last season, BoJack attempts to use his career second wind as a stepladder to a springboard to becoming a newer, better BoJack. But new challenges on set and in his personal life, and the demons of his past make it difficult to shake off the skin of his previous self. If season one of BoJack Horseman is about a character learning he needs to change, the new season is about whether or not he can. It's a character in a rut, trying to pull out of that rut, and the rut pulling back.
Also, there are lots of surprise guest stars and funny talking animal jokes.
The all-star cast includes Will Arnett as BoJack Horseman, Aaron Paul as Todd Chavez, Amy Sedaris as Princess Carolyn, Alison Brie as Diane Nguyen and Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter. Lisa Kudrow guest stars as Wanda Pierce.

Doctor Who - Industry Gossip Gives a Date for 'Dark Water/Death In Heaven' 3D Blu-ray
No official word from the BBC or from Warner yet, but sources say September
The title hasn't actually been announced to the press yet by BBC Home Entertainment, or by their North American distributors at Warner Home Video. But one of our contacts in Canada have passed along to us that BBC/Warner are planning on a September 22nd release of the 8th season's two-part finale, Doctor Who - Dark Water/Death In a 3D Blu-ray Disc. This will be The Doctor's second "3DBD" release, following the December 2013 3DBD/BD/DVD combo pack for The Day of the Doctor: 50th Anniversary Special.
Details, pricing and finalized package art for Dark Water/Death In Heaven on 3DBD haven't been made available yet, and it might just be best to chalk it up to "rumors" at this point in time, and nothing we've said above is finalized and could be subject to change. But on the above right we've got an early thumbnail-sized look at possible key artwork for the package, supplied by our retail sources. Stay tuned for updates, as further developments occur!

'True Blood' Cast, Showrunner on the Storylines That Could Have Been

[Los Angeles, CA]--- Last night, Access Hollywood caught up with Pierce Brosnan at the NOVEMBER MAN premiere and shared his funny experience from the first time he met Robin Williams.
Pierce Brosnan: “Well it was a strange experience because I read the script and I knew what the story was of course …. I'd never met the man and I went into the makeup trailer and there was Robin, with Ugg boots and a Hawaiian shirt with the head of Mrs. Doubtfire! So I really never got to see Robin throughout the whole shooting, not till the wrap party. Then he popped his head in the door and he said ‘Hello Pierce, how are you’ I said, oh my God, it's Robin. There you are! I haven't seen you in weeks.”
Then Pierce reflects on his experience with shooting MRS. DOUBTFIRE: “That was such a beautiful experience. That job came into my life in the most perfect time. It is a film that I hold dear to my heart and the memory of Robin will forever be kept alive by the sheer genius, humanity of the man.”

The Facts of Life - Revised/Corrected Package Art for 'The Complete 7th Season'
A young George Clooney is front-and-center on this updated box image
Yesterday we reported that The Facts of Life - The Complete 7th Season is coming to DVD this fall from Shout! Factory. The 3-disc set will be out October 20th, and features a new cast member: George Clooney! At the bottom of yesterday's story, we raised the point that the provided box art seen at Amazon and the Shout! store was incorrect, as it featured Cloris Leachman on the cover...and she didn't join the show until the start of Season 8.
We told you we would alert Shout! Factory about the situation immediately, and we did. Late yesterday the studio provided us with revised package art, correcting the mistake, and we've got a high-res 3D look at that new packaging below. As you can see, Charlotte Rae's "Edna Garrett" isn't in evidence, but a young Clooney is front-and-center in the new image. Amazon still hasn't updated their picture as of this writiing, but the Shout! store certainly has.

In the process, he will take on the entire system -- with deadly consequences. Syfy greenlit the pilot in April, which is scheduled to commence production later this year.
Ormond will play Ben's mother-in-law, Elizabeth, a whip-smart, powerful top executive who enjoys the perks of her position, but is also trapped in a ruthless system that demands results. Ben lives with wife Laura (Haig), Elizabeth’s daughter, in the lush, manicured Green Zone of the well-to-do, while Theo (Ramos) dwells in the dangerous, poverty-stricken Red Zone, and may provide a surprising connection to Ben’s past. In a high-stakes world where the ethical boundaries we know have been completely redrawn, how far is Ben willing to go -- and what happens if he fails?

Today, The Kennedy Center Honors announced their honorees for 2015 are the American rock band Eagles, singer-songwriter Carole King, filmmaker George Lucas, actress and singer Rita Moreno, conductor Seiji Ozawa and actress and Broadway star Cicely Tyson. They will be recognized during THE 38TH ANNUAL KENNEDY CENTER HONORS, to be broadcast Tuesday, Dec. 29 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. CBS has broadcast the special each year since its debut 38 years ago.
“The Kennedy Center Honors recognizes the extraordinary and unparalleled talents of individuals whose impact and genius have left an indelible mark on civilization,” stated Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein. “Quite simply, our Honorees represent the voices, soundtracks and stories of our personal lives and memories. The music of the Eagles has endured as the quintessential American rock and roll sound for generations; Carole King’s heartfelt lyrics and tunes are woven throughout the tapestry of American music; George Lucas’ films have enriched our world with stories of epic adventure; Rita Moreno’s iconic spitfire roles are embedded in the heart of American culture; Seiji Ozawa’s artistic leadership as a conductor has set a new standard for orchestras around the world; and Cicely Tyson’s range of strong female roles on stage and screen have broken boundaries for women of color.”
“When I look at this year’s outstanding slate of Honorees, I am struck by a powerful common theme – artists as history-makers, artists who defy both convention and category,” commented Kennedy Center President Deborah F. Rutter. “Each Honoree and their career-spanning achievements exemplify a rare quality of artistic bravery. They have pushed the limits of their gifts as musicians, actors and storytellers to inspire generations of Americans and those around the world. Their individual paths to excellence are inspirational and their contributions to the fabric of American culture are equally permanent and timeless.” In a star-studded celebration on the Kennedy Center Opera House stage, the 2015 Honorees will be saluted by great performers from Hollywood and the arts capitals of the world. Seated with President and Mrs. Obama, the Honorees will accept the thanks of their peers and fans through performances and heartfelt tributes.

The 2015 Kennedy Center Honors Gala concludes with a supper dance in the Grand Foyer.
The Honors recipients are recognized for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts – whether in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures or television – and are selected by the Center’s Board of Trustees. The primary criterion in the selection process is excellence. The Honors are not designated by art form or category of artistic achievement; over the years, the selection process has produced a balance among the various arts and artistic disciplines.

Dan Jinks And Paul Rudnick To Executive Produce, With Rudnick Writing The Pilot
New York, NY – July 13, 2015 – TV Land has greenlit "I Shudder," a dark comedy pilot starring Hamish Linklater ("The New Adventures of Old Christine," "The Newsroom") and written by Paul Rudnick ("In & Out," "Addams Family Values"), about a meticulous but generous man who sees the world in very black and white terms: what is acceptable, and what is unacceptable. Dan Jinks ("American Beauty," "Pushing Daisies") and Rudnick will executive produce.
Linklater stars as the eccentric Elyot Vionnet, an advocate of manners, style and most importantly, common decency. Observing people committing heinous crimes of etiquette, he tries to counsel them from afar, inserting himself into their lives most unwelcomely. When the individuals he deems classless choose not to take his advice, they are met with terrible consequences. In the midst of his mission, Elyot allies himself with his neighbor, an 11-year-old girl named Stella, to try to make the world better, one tactless person at a time.
"This pilot is a unique dark dramedy, and is truly outside the box for TV Land," said Keith Cox, Executive Vice President of Development and Original Programming for TV Land. "We’re excited to explore new paths of genres for the network as we continue to evolve."
About the series, Dan Jinks added, "Paul Rudnick is one of the funniest writers on the planet Earth, and Hamish Linklater is one of the funniest actors. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with both of them. I’ve wanted to work with Paul for many years. I’m so pleased that he’s making his TV debut with this hilarious series."

Marilyn Monroe Musical That Originated on NBC’s “Smash” to Begin Development for Legit Life
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – June 22, 2015 – Following the explosive and well-received Actors Fund benefit that featured the music of “Bombshell” from the NBC television series “Smash,” Universal Stage Productions has begun development on “Bombshell” as a musical for the stage.
The announcement was made by Robert Greenblatt, Chairman of NBC Entertainment, and Jimmy Horowitz, President of Universal Pictures, who run Universal Stage Productions together.
In the wake of the June 8 benefit concert, the New Yorker proclaimed “Bombshell” “the best Broadway musical that doesn’t exist,” and the New York Post said, “Technically there was never a Marilyn Monroe musical, but after a production like this, maybe there should be.”
“There is a still a lot of love for ‘Smash’ and a rabid fan base out there, and we’re thrilled to be able to keep the dream alive as we work towards bringing ‘Bombshell’ to theatre audiences,” said Greenblatt. “‘Smash’ was ambitious because every episode was a complicated musical for television and we also built the foundation of the musical-within-the-musical about Marilyn’s endlessly fascinating and tumultuous life. Over the course of two seasons an entire ‘Bombshell’ score was written to service ‘Smash’ storylines, and now that show will have a chance to stand on its own.”
“We are so thrilled that ‘Smash’ isn’t over and that ‘Bombshell’ gets to live on,” said Craig Zadan, who, along with partner Neil Meron, will serve as the lead producers of “Bombshell.” “The Emmy-nominated songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, including the iconic ‘Let Me Be Your Star,’ are every bit the caliber of their Tony- and Grammy-winning Broadway work. The Actors Fund benefit reinforced how alive this material is on stage and how much the audience wants to see the Marilyn Monroe musical in its entirety.”
Added Meron: “As life imitates art, Joshua Bergasse, our brilliant Emmy-winning choreographer from ‘Smash,’ actually made his Broadway debut this season as a choreographer and was nominated for a Tony Award. Now he will get the chance to reimagine his exhilarating ‘Bombshell’ dances for the theatre.”
Steven Spielberg had long wanted to develop a series about the making of a Broadway musical and "Smash" was that idea come to life. He was the executive producer of the series and will be involved in the new stage production of "Bombshell." A book writer will be announced shortly.
Shaiman and Wittman, also executive producers of the series, will continue on “Bombshell” with Shaiman serving as composer and co-lyricist and Wittman as co-lyricist. Their Broadway successes include “Hairspray,” “Catch Me If You Can” (based on the film directed by Spielberg) and “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” which is currently running in London’s West End and will arrive on Broadway in the future.
