Every time you change the channel, it seems that another primetime network has revamped another classic for the small screen — and sometimes, to viewers’ displeasure.
After this week’s Dirty Dancing remake, which, well, wasn’t a fan favorite, we’re taking a look back at what the Internet has had to say about the rest of the primetime musical adaptations, from the low to high notes.
The latest addition to the primetime lineup of musical remakes was a little different. ABC’s Dirty Dancing wasn’t technically a musical, and it wasn’t live, as many of the revamps have been. »

Dee Rees’ next project will be a horror film exploring domestic life, race, sexuality, and small town America. Originally reported by the New York Times, the Tracking Board and Shadow and Act have confirmed that Rees is collaborating with “Get Out” producer Jason Blum on a horror movie about a black lesbian couple living in a rural town.
According to the Times, the “Pariah” and “Bessie” director informally pitched Blum the idea, which is inspired by her own life. Rees told Blum about her move to a small town: “You’ve got me and my wife, two black lesbians, and when we first moved in, we fought every day over all these little things: ‘Why is this over there? Did you move that?’”
“Maybe it was a ghost,” she observed. “Or maybe it was some other force — like us not wanting to be there or fitting in.”
Blum was intrigued by the pitch and followed up with her. Rees said that she is ready to “make the best possible version of what I want to make.”
“Visibility is great because it shows other African American women they can be whatever they chose to be. But for me, the story comes first. If I’m visible fine, but I really want the story to come first,” Rees told us, referring to opportunities for black women directors. “I stand on a lot of shoulders: Euzhan Palcy, Kasi Lemmons, and Julie Dash. It was great to be pursuing my dreams and hopefully I’ll build a body of work and I will be among them one day.”
Rees’ latest film, “Mudbound,” earned rave reviews when it premiered at Sundance earlier this year. Set in post–World War II South, the drama centers on two families facing racism and poverty. “Mudbound,” which Rees co-wrote with Virgil Williams, sold to Netflix for $12.5 million — the biggest deal of Sundance 2017. It stars Carey Mulligan (“Suffragette”), Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Jason Mitchell (“Straight Outta Compton”), Mary J. Blige (“The Wiz Live!”), Rob Morgan (“Stranger Things”), Garrett Hedlund (“Inside Llewyn Davis”), and Jonathan Banks (“Better Call Saul”).
“Mudbound” doesn’t have a release date yet, but is expected to debut sometime this year. Most recently, Rees has helmed two episodes of “When We Rise,” an ABC miniseries chronicling the gay rights movement in the U.S.
Dee Rees Working on a Horror Film About a Lesbian Couple in a Small Town was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

At one point in her chat with Martinez, the Grammy winner was almost brought to tears when referencing the "hurt" and "betrayal" that led to her breakup with Isaacs.

Among the many skills that Sean “Puff Daddy/P. Diddy” Combs has (or has not) displayed over the years, the greatest might be a preternatural ability at self-promotion that borders on self-mythologizing. And with the aid of first-time director Daniel Kaufman, and the extended family and friends around Bad Boy Records, the wildly successful record company Combs founded in 1993, the documentary “Can't Stop, Won't Stop: The Bad Boy Story” — which premiered on Thursday at New York’s Beacon Theatre as part of the Tribeca Film Festival — goes a long way toward sealing that myth.
While the story of Combs and the label is compelling — fatherless kid rises up from the streets and founds company that leads him to become one of the greatest black entrepreneurs in history, overcoming adversity and tragedy along the way — the fact that the filmmakers didn’t really have much to work with beyond »
