Coach Carter, 15 Years Later: What the Cast Is Up to Now
Happy birthday, Channing Tatum! Ok, so it's not really the superstar's birthday (that would be April 26 and he's turning the big 4-0!), but Jan. 14 does mark the official film acting debut of Tatum, who made his first appearance on the big screen in 2005's Coach Carter.  The inspirational and true story starred Samuel L. Jackson as the new head coach of his old high school's basketball team, with the superstar portraying Ken Carter, the real-life figure who made headlines in 1999 when he suspended some of his team's biggest stars due to their poor academic performance. With Jackson as its draw, the sports film, which was co-written by One Tree Hill creator Mark Schwahn, went on to...

Elizabeth Hurley Laments The Royals' Disappointing Ending, Offers No Hope for Season 5: 'The Sets Were Burned'
It’s been more than a year since The Royals‘ reign at E! reached a premature end, but fans — and series star Elizabeth Hurley, apparently — are still mourning the loss of the Henstridge monarchy.

During an appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on Monday, Hurley was asked by a caller if she was satisfied with the show’s conclusion. “No,” she replied. “We didn’t expect it to end. Everybody thought there would definitely be a fifth season, so the storylines weren’t really finished properly. I think a lot of the fans were upset that we didn’t tie up loose ends.

Sophia Bush Says She Quit ‘Chicago Pd’ Due to ‘Abusive Behavior,’ ‘Intolerable’ On-Set Conditions
Sophia Bush has been fairly tight-lipped about her reasons for leaving “Chicago P.D.” at the end of Season 4. But on Monday, the actress who had played Det. Erin Lindsay on the Dick Wolf NBC series since the drama’s premiere in 2014, finally revealed details of the on-set conditions and “consistent onslaught barrage of abusive behavior” she says led to her 2017 exit.

“I programmed myself to tolerate the intolerable,” Bush told Dax Shepard on his podcast, “Armchair Expert.” “And part of the big break for me in saying, ‘No. I don’t necessarily know what it is, but I know that what’s happening is not good for me and everything has to change.’ That was a big cutoff point when I quit my job.”

“It has to stop, everything stops,” she continued. “I quit because what I’ve learned, I’ve been so programmed to be a good girl

The Royals: Season Four Ratings

Despite declining ratings each season, E! has continued to renew The Royals TV show, when it might have been cancelled on other networks. As the cabler's first foray into scripted fare, they have given this primetime soap opera every chance. After production was done on the fourth season though, they fired creator Mark Schwahn, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations. How that ultimately affects this low-rated show's fate remains to be seen and likely depends on the ratings in the fourth season. Will The Royals be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.

The Royals Canceled at E! After Four Seasons!

  • TVfanatic
At a time the royal family is as popular as ever, The Royals has been canceled at E! network.

As it was their last remaining (and first) scripted program, the cancelation leaves them with only reality programming for now.

Deadline reports producing studio Lionsgate TV has been shopping the drama around to other networks with Pop a possibility for a fifth season.

As the real royal family has been an inspiration for The Royals and with Meghan Markles' introduction this year, the timing seems off for a network otherwise focused on celebrity.

Markle surely brought in a sizeable audience while on Suits and an even larger one as she married into the royal without a capital R family.

It wouldn't surprise anyone if The Royals wanted to introduce a new Hollywood celebrity of their own into the storyline.

Time’s up for misogyny in TV writers’ rooms

A new survey shows that these spaces are hotbeds of sexual harassment. Do women always have to be collateral damage for male creativity?

TV writers’ rooms, so we have long been told (mostly by male writers), are hotbeds of creativity. Places where intense geniuses bat one-liners back and forth like tennis champions and everyone talks like Don Draper landing an account with Chevy. Normal workplace rules don’t apply in this weirdly mythologised space. Everything must be at the service of the story. So if that involves a male writer forcing a female writer’s head between her knees, then balancing a soda can on it while making a joke about her ability to perform oral sex, then so be it. An award-winning show might be the end result.

CBS, Showtime, Paramount Execs Talk At&T-Time Warner, ‘Roseanne’

  • Variety
A federal judge’s decision to allow At&T’s acquisition of Time Warner is destined to have ripple effects in the media business.

“I think you’ve cleared the way for more consolidation,” Epix president Michael Wright said Wednesday at Variety‘s Tune In! TV Summit. “My personal expectation is you’re probably going to see more of it.”

Wright was joined by studio and network chiefs from across television in a panel moderated by Variety executive editor Debra Birnbaum — who kicked things off with a conversation about Tuesday’s At&T-Time Warner decision.

Several execs shared Wright’s view.

“Unlike some of the fears that it’s going to be anti-competitive, I think it’s going to create a situation where more people are going to be able to compete with some of the streamers who have eaten up some of the environment,” said Lionsgate Television president Sandra Stern.
