A product of the same team behind “Cruel Intentions: The Musical,” “The O.C.” musical will be adapted and directed by Jordan Ross, with Lindsey Rosin producing. The one-night-only event will go down in Los Angeles on August 30.

At this point, only the roles of Luke Ward, Kirsten Cohen and Josh Schwartz have been cast. That’s right: the show’s creator will be a character in this musical, although not a singing one.

Schwartz’s series ran on Fox from 2003 to 2007 and revolved around a herd of wealthy, dramatic teenagers living in Orange County, Calif. The series is responsible for launching the careers of Adam Brody, Rachel Bilson and Mischa Barton. Tate Donovan, Peter Gallagher, Kelly Rowan and Ben McKenzie also starred.

Here's the Full List of Critics' Choice TV Awards Winners

1 June 2015 6:45 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.

"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.

Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.

The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

"Center Stage" Turns 15 -- See What the Cast Looks Like Now!

12 May 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

"Cooper, you're an amazing dancer, and you're a great choreographer, but as a boyfriend... you kinda suck" -- if you remember Jody Sawyer's classic line, you can call yourself a "Center Stage" fan. It's hard to believe it's been 15 years since Jody (Amanda Schull) danced into our hearts (and all over he ex-boyfriend's heart!) in the 2000 teen drama about ballet life at the fictitious American Ballet Academy. The film was filled with steamy love triangles and well-choreographed dance moves, as well as an epic finale to "Canned Heat" by Jamiroquai.  In honor of the film's 15th anniversary, toofab is taking a look back at the cast to see what they've been doing since the movie's big screen debut.   So, where is Jody now? Schull has had success on the small screen, landing recurring roles on "One Tree Hill," "Pretty Little Liars" and "Suits." She currently stars as virologist Cassandra Railly on Syfy's new series, »

Amanda Peet ('Togetherness') on why it's 'fun to play a desperate person' [Exclusive Video]'

4 May 2015 2:12 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

"She's still pretty lost and desperate, so I'm happy about that," says Amanda Peet about playing lovelorn Tina in HBO's freshman comedy "Togetherness." She's currently in production on season two. "For some reason it's really fun for me to play a desperate person. I don't know what that means. I find it to be really relatable. I don't know if it's from years of being an actor or not thinking I got enough attention as a child, but there's something about it that is really fun for me." -Break- Melanie Lynskey ('Togetherness') on 'feminist' love scenes [Exclusive Video] In the first season, which finished airing in March, Tina was down on her luck, insecure about her career options, and unsure if she should settle down with a hotshot Hollywood producer she doesn't love (Peter Gallagher) or her friend Alex (Steve Zissis), a struggling actor. As an actress, she c »

10 Sitcom Pilots Inspired by Real People: Which Will You Watch?

17 April 2015 5:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Last week, in the wake of Eddie Huang's complaints that he felt ABC's "Fresh Off the Boat" was distorting and softening his childhood experiences, this column examined how hard it is for any biographical or autobiographical sitcom to be true to the life of its source and still be a crowd-pleasing primetime network entertainment. You'd think, after decades of trying, TV writers and network programming executives would be aware of this.

Nonetheless, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the networks have no fewer than ten such sitcom pilots in production, as the first episodes of potential 2015-16 primetime series. Some are based on the lives of already famous entertainers, some on the self-referential stand-up comedy routines of not-quite-famous comics, and some on memoirsts who've lived interesting lives.

Here's a rundown of these pilots, with a look at who these shows are about, who's starring in them, what the series might be like, »

Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard Accused of Stealing Idea for The Cabin In The Woods

15 April 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

I’m always baffled and suspicious when litigation over a movie comes up years after the film has been released. That being said, the case against The Cabin in the Woods looks to have some basis in fact even though the lawsuit isn’t timely. Or at least, it isn’t timely to that film’s release; it just happens to be coming up as co-writer Joss Whedon’s new movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is a couple weeks from hitting theaters. According to THR, author Peter Gallagher claims Whedon, co-writer/director Drew Goddard stole the idea from his 2006 novel The Little White Trip: A Night In the Pines, and is suing the two filmmakers for copyright infringement along with distributors Lionsgate and production company Mutant Enemy. Gallagher is asking for $10 million in damages. [caption id="attachment_159682" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Lionsgate[/caption] More often than not, the similarities are so broad that the suit is clearly frivolous. »

15 April 2015 9:16 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Joss Whedon has been sued for $10 million for alleged copyright infringement over his 2012 movie The Cabin in the Woods, just over two weeks before the May 1 release of his latest film, The Avengers: Age of Ultron. In a complaint filed on Monday at a California federal court, author Peter Gallagher claims that the film "borrows heavily" from his 2006 book The Little White Trip: A Night In the Pines. Whedon and the other defendants—The Cabin in the Woods director Drew Goddard, who co-wrote the script with Whedon, and studio Lionsgate, have not commented.

Joss Whedon Sued For Stealing The Cabin In The Woods

15 April 2015 8:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Joss Whedon is exhausted from his work on Avengers: Age of Ultron. The last thing he needs right now is to get hit with a massive lawsuit for one of his past films. Three years after The Cabin in the Woods hit theaters, Whedon and the film’s distributor, Lionsgate, have been served with $10 million lawsuit for infringing on intellectual property. Peter Gallagher (not to be confused with the actor) is the author of a book called The Little White Trip: A Night in the Pines. According to The Wrap, the suit he filed with the U.S. district court claims The Cabin in the Woods is “virtually identical” in a number of ways, including “plots, stories, characters, sequence of events, themes, dialogue and incidents.”  Whedon co-wrote the script for the film with director Drew Goddard, telling the story of a group of »
