PBS’ New Season Will Feature Walt Disney Documentary, Civil War Drama ‘Mercy Street’

3 June 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

PBS this coming TV season will boast an unvarnished look at entertainment entrepreneur Walt Disney, a revival of Ken Burns epic documentary “The Civil War” and something that has been a rarity on the network in recent years: a drama financed by PBS set in America.

The network best known these days for pickups of British productions like “Downton Abbey” and “Call the Midwife” will in January debut “Mercy Street,” a six-part Civil War epic that is produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and is the first American drama to air on PBS in more than a decade. Such stuff “is expensive,” noted Beth Hoppe, chief programming executive and general manager of general audience programming at PBS, in an interview, but the network expects to monetize the product through international distribution. Josh Radnor and Mary Elizabeth Winstead are among the members of the show’s cast.

28 April 2015 11:00 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Gloria Estefan has passed on her musical genes to her daughter! Emily Marie Consuelo may only be a college sophomore, but she's already making a name for herself as a singer.  "The reality is they're amazing golden footsteps to follow in," the 20-year-old musician told "Today" when asked about following the same career as her mom. "My biggest fear now is just being able to do the past justice."  The college student grew up on the stage, first showing off her skills when she was only 10-years-old. She made her official singing debut in 2014 at The Hollywood Bowl, which she called "daunting." "All the people who have been able to perform there that ... deserve it," she said. "Oftentimes, I don't believe that I deserve things ... There's no way of knowing when you are a descendant of the Conga Queen." As Emily builds her own career, Gloria and husband Emilio Estefan »

They sure grow up so fast! If you ask Gloria Estefan, it feels like yesterday when her daughter Emily was a baby backstage at her sold-out concerts. Fast-forward to today and the 20-year-old college sophomore is totally grown up and ready to rock out on her own. "I always think about it as a double-edge sword," Emily shared on Monday's Today show when asked about following the same career as her mom. "I don't even understand that saying because doesn't a sword have one edge?" She continued, "But the reality is they're amazing golden footsteps to follow in so my biggest fear now is just being able to do the past justice." While Gloria has been touring the »

Rumer Willis has been changed by Dancing With the Stars. Physically. The House Bunny star took the stage Monday in a revealing Cher-inspired disco outfit to dance the cha cha cha to Gloria Estefan's "Turn the Beat Around."

"It's pretty tough when you're jumping up and down and shaking it everywhere." But don't expect many costumes similar to the midriff-baring disco number you see in the video above. "This was very exposed for me. I tend to like to keep myself a little more covered up," Rumer told us. So don't expect a »

VH1 ‘Divas Live': Salute to Chart-Topping Femmes Ignited New Era

28 January 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the late ’90s, women ruled the pop charts, but it took Ken Ehrlich to unite the performers and usher in a new Era of the Diva.

In 1998, Ehrlich and VH1 launched “Divas Live,” an annual benefit for the channel’s Save the Music Foundation that showcased the towering talents of both the day’s top female artists and the legends that influenced them.

Nearly 20 years later, the inaugural edition, which aired live from New York’s Beacon Theater, still stands out for Celine Dion, the first artist who officially signed on to appear.

“To me, the show felt like a very important career moment,” she says. “I mean I had the chance to share the stage with these amazing ladies … Gloria Estefan, Mariah Carey, Shania Twain, Carole King, and the one and only Aretha Franklin, who was one of my idols growing up. This was such an huge honor for me. »

We’ve know for a while now that Pam Anderson was coming to Glee in its final season, but we still didn’t know who would be playing Pam, who is actually just the character of Blaine’s mother (not the real-life Pamela Anderson).
