NBCUniversal’s E! said it would launch three new series and a set of specials as part of its new programming in the year ahead while it continued to focus on development as it casts about for a new hit franchise on the order of its various programs centered around the colorful Kardashian family.
The network, which the cabler’s parent has been seeking to turn into a more upscale venue since receiving the network as a result of its purchase by Comcast Corp. in 2011, is placing a bet on scripted fare – a significant maneuver for a network that has largely depended on reality series to stock much of its schedule.
“The Royals,” E’s first original scripted drama, is set to launch in early 2015. Starring Elizabeth Hurley, “The Royals” is produced by Lionsgate and will depict a set of members of a modern-day royal family as their lives are »

Fear can be a strange thing. It can pop up at unexpected moments, and for unexplainable reasons. While some people can have irrational fears of things like clowns and spiders, there are a select few who fear places meant to be a safe haven for people in their time of need. A place that always seems to garner a mixed feeling of either dread or serenity is a hospital. They’re big buildings full of many individuals, and yet they always feel so empty. It could be the dull colors, the odd silence, or the cold that drifts down its many dark hallways that makes one uneasy. Or maybe it’s the aroma of rubbing alcohol and latex that triggers an unpleasant past experience for a person. All of these things are enough to make one think of a horror movie, because they are the perfect setting for disastrous events. »

Just think how much the tabloids are going to be missing: They don’t have Alec Baldwin to kick around any more.
The last year has been rough on Baldwin professionally. Privately, it’s been a time of great joy, as he and his wife, Hilaria, welcomed a baby daughter. But even »

So, we’ve arrived at the top 20, slowly creeping toward those films that are exactly what a romantic comedy should be. We’ve seen films that fall into the category, but lean more toward other genres. We’ve seen romantic films that are funny enough to be comedies, but don’t entirely represent the spirit of the rom-com, despite being brilliant films. Now, we form a clearer picture of what a romantic comedy is. Not all of the films in this section are necessarily “good,” but they’re all iconic, definitive romantic comedies (hence their inclusion). Memorability does not necessarily come partnered with quality. It means right place, right time.

The director and writer of “Weekend at Bernie’s” have sued Fox and MGM over the studios’ alleged failure to pay them profits from the comedy.
