Exclusive: 40 Years After 'Laverne & Shirley' Premiered, Cindy Williams Spills Secrets From the Set

16 December 2016 5:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

40 years after the premiere of Laverne & Shirley, Cindy Williams opens up to Et about what it was like shooting the revered show.

The 69-year-old actress sat down with Et's Nischelle Turner, shortly after guest appearing on The Odd Couple, and shared that the famous Laverne & Shirley opening sequence was an idea that Penny's brother and show co-creator, the late Garry Marshall, came up with on the spot.

"We were out on the lot at Paramount on New York street, and he said, 'Penny, teach Cindy that little dance you did on the way to school with your chums,'" Williams recalled. "And he said action and we did it once, and I didn't get it -- the up and down, 'Schlemiel! Schlimazel!' -- and so the second take I got it, and he said, 'Ok that's good. We're out of here.'"

Dawber and Harmon, both 65, will celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary next year. When Dawber and Harmon wed, the actress was still going strong off the success of her sitcom, Mork & Mindy, and the handsome heartthrob was more than a decade into an extraordinary TV career, which included roles on The Love Boat and St. Elsewhere. Today, Harmon stars on CBS' No. 1 rated drama NCIS, while Dawber gave up fame more than a decade ago to raise the couple's two sons: 28-year-old Sean and 24-year-old Ty.

Exclusive: Penny Marshall Opens Up About Late Brother Garry Marshall: 'He Gave Me a Life'

4 November 2016 3:39 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Et was on the set of the upcoming Odd Couple tribute to Garry Marshall, where his sister, Penny Marshall, revealed just how much he meant to her.

"My brother gave me a life," Penny told her nephew, Scott -- Garry's director son -- who was interviewing her for Et. "It's not many people who have a brother who give them a life. He gave me a life and I appreciate it and I tried to not let him down."

Penny's career was just one of many that Garry launched in his five-decade-long career. As the mastermind behind such beloved TV shows and movies such as Happy Days, Mork & Mindy, Pretty Woman and The Princess Diaries (to name just a few!), Garry greatly impacted the careers of stars like Julia Roberts, Robin Williams, Anne Hathaway, Kate Hudson, Henry Winkler, Rob Lowe, John Stamos, Scott Baio and Mayim Bialik.

The Fades: celebrating BBC Three originals

18 February 2016 6:52 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




With great writing, a strong cast and a gripping story, Jack Thorne’s 2011 supernatural drama The Fades was one of the best…

According to former BBC Three controller Zai Bennett, fans of The Fades have themselves to blame for Jack Thorne’s superb fantasy drama not being recommissioned. We were too few and too old.

The BBC Three remit aimed to attract 16-34 year olds, Bennett explained at the 2012 Edinburgh International Television Festival. Because The Fades found more love among those with mortgages and middle-age spread than it did with fresh-faced teens and twenty-somethings, it didn’t fulfil that remit.

However much critical acclaim (plaudits from The Guardian, The Telegraph, some website called Den Of Geek) or however many awards (a Bafta for Best Drama, nominations for Best Writer, wins for Best Music and Digital Effects) The Fades received, the kids weren’t down so it had to go. »
