Julia Louis-Dreyfus is starting to dominate her Emmys category of Best Comedy Actress.

Rob Lowe — or at very least, Rob Lowe's corpse! — is heading to Lifetime. Lowe will star in the network's new ripped-from-the-headlines film Beautiful and Twisted as Ben Novack Jr., the heir to Miami's luxury Fontainebleau hotel fortune who was found brutally murdered. Paz Vega will play his wife, Narcy, a prime suspect in his murder, while Candice Bergen plays his mom. Presumably he isn't murdered right away and/or the film relies heavily on flashbacks/ghosts, or else Lowe is just seriously trying to cut down on his work schedule these days. »

The Hollywood panel at Herb Allen's Sun Valley annual get-together took place Thursday night and insiders tell me that Brian Grazer charmed, Chinese hot property Lee Wong intrigued, Candice Bergen endeared and Harvey Weinstein … well, he was Harvey. Several people in attendance said the Weinstein Co. mogul caused eyes to roll and visibly annoyed moderator Charlie Rose by touting his TV division, which is apparently about to be sold. “Harvey was his usual self-promoting self,” said one person in attendance, who declined to be named. “He dug himself a hole.” Also read: Sun Valley 2014: Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg Among Attendees Weinstein. »

For a recent feature in Entertainment Weekly, we spoke to showrunners who’ve had the pleasure – and pressure — of wrapping up some of TV’s most beloved series. Murphy Brown creator Diane English had left the CBS comedy after season 4 but returned for its tenth and final season and penned its hour-long 1998 series finale. In the two-part “Never Can Say Goodbye,” Murphy (five-time Emmy winner Candice Bergen) — who’d battled breast cancer that year – contemplated retirement as she dealt with a second scare. While under anesthesia for a surgery that ultimately confirmed she was cancer-free, Murphy scored her biggest interview, »
