Ryan Kavanaugh Sells Malibu Home Amid Relativity Crisis

21 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ryan Kavanaugh, founder of the financially plagued Relativity Media, has sold his Malibu estate for $8.75 million.

Kavanaugh bought the home through a trust six years ago for $7 million. The beachfront property, built in 1955, includes four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a deck and a patio with ocean views. The home is 3,087 sq. feet.

On Wednesday, Relativity laid off 75 employees in the face of looming Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The divisions hit hardest were said to be Relativity’s ancillary fashion, education and digital units.

Kavanaugh, producer of such film and TV shows such as Bradley Cooper’s “Limitless” and MTV’s “Catfish,” has been desperately trying to find new investors or loans to fill a $320 million debt obligation.

According to the L.A. Times, his Malibu estate was up for lease at the end of May at a rate of $65,000 for one month.

TruTV Sets ‘Billy on the Street’ Season Premiere Date, More

29 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judging by the fall lineup it announced on Wednesday, TruTV believes the element of surprise is key to a good laugh.

The Turner Broadcasting System-owned cabler has announced an Oct. 8 return of Billy Eichner’s rapid-fire comedy routine “Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street.” The show famously forces unsuspecting pedestrians into the spotlight as they’re forced to answer inane questions or perform stunts with good-natured guest stars. This year’s crop of A-listers accompanying Eichner on his quests include Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Anna Kendrick and Julianne Moore.

Meanwhile, hidden camera show “Impractical Jokers” will be partying in August with a week-long celebration that culminates in a celebration of its 100th episode with the “Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special.” Airing on Sept. 3 and hosted by Howie Mandel, the special promises a “heart-stopping dare that’s above and beyond anything the guys have ever done.”

'America's Got Talent' Recap: Is the Best Act of the Night Eliminated During Judge Cuts?

28 July 2015 1:44 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

We're halfway through the brand-new Judge Cuts round on America's Got Talent's 10th anniversary season, a format that I find a welcome change from the usual rapid-fire Judgment Week. And thankfully so far, the panel has gotten it mostly right.

With multifaceted entertainer extraordinaire and Nick Cannon look-alike Marlon Wayans joining the crew, let's hope that trend continues. The White Chicks star is the guest of Howie Mandel, who promises that Heidi Klum will snuggle, though Marlon would prefer Mel B. The Spice Girl agrees to a little cuddle, but only if she can be the big spoon.

Why You Should Watch: 7 Days in Hell

26 July 2015 8:03 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

7 Days in Hell is an HBO TV mockumentary about the greatest game of tennis ever played, a seven day affair between American Aaron Williams (Andy Samberg) and Englishman Charles Poole (Kit Harrington). The movie was released on July 11th, coinciding with Wimbledon 2015. Somewhat in the spirit of wild sports movies like Adam Sandler’s Happy Gilmore, this fictional documentary comes off as sweet, cameo-chocked, and wholly palatable. It was a welcome comedic foil to the real games of 2015 Wimbledon, which saw elation in Serena’s inevitable victory, and felt defeat for the Swiss Maestro.

Serena Williams, who dominated the real court in at 2015 Wimbledon, leads off a massive list of cameos. According to 7 Days in Hell myth, Aaron Williams is the adopted son of Richard Williams, and third lion in the Williams pride. At only forty-two minutes long, this TV short film is definitely worth a watch.

'America's Got Talent' Recap: Judge Cuts Get Underway with Neil Patrick Harris

14 July 2015 1:23 PM, PDT | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

With the audition round of America's Got Talent's 10th anniversary season in the books, it's time for the revamped Judge Cuts portion of the competition. It replaces (and is superior to, I think) Judgment Week, which had to be renamed because this process will last several of those.

Judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Mel B. and Heidi Klum have narrowed down the advancing acts to their Top 80, and four shows of 20 performances each with seven acts moving on will pare down the group to 28. Those acts will join stuttering comedian Drew Lynch, contemporary dance duo Freckled Sky, gospel singer Sharon Irving and 11-year-old opera singer Arielle Baril -- the Golden Buzzer recipients -- on the stage at Radio City Music Hall for the live shows.

'7 Days in Hell' is 45 Minutes of Boredom

9 July 2015 11:51 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

HBO's "7 Days in Hell" airs this Saturday, July 11, at 10 Pm Et/Pt and whew, it's not good. Starring Andy Samberg and "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington as rival tennis players, the 45-minute special is a send up of the 2010 Wimbledon match between John Isner and Nicolas Mahut, which ran for three days. Bad boy American, Aaron Williams (Samberg) and British home favorite Charles Poole (Harington) battle it out over the course of seven days with interviews and vignettes spliced in-between each day's play and with every passing minute it weighs heavier and heavier on your soul. Williams is something of an Andre Agassi, tennis bad boy that falls on hard times after killing a linesman with an errant serve, while Poole is a dimwitted Brit who can hardly tie his own shoes.

'7 Days in Hell' Trailer: Samberg Vs. Harington in an Epic Tennis Match

22 June 2015 4:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Following the first trailer that debuted earlier this month, HBO has debuted the full-length trailer for the upcoming comedy special 7 Days in Hell with even more revealing and hilarious footage. Starring Andy Samberg (Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Saturday Night Live) as Aaron Williams and Kit Harington (Testament of Youth, HBO's Game of Thrones) as Charles Poole, the HBO special presentation 7 Days in Hell debuts Saturday, July 11 (10:00-10:45 p.m. Et/Pt). Prior to its debut on the main HBO channel, 7 Days in Hell will be available on HBO Now and HBO Go, starting July 8.

They were two of the biggest tennis stars of their day: Aaron Williams, a hyper-malcontent American bad boy, and Charles Poole, a dim-witted prodigy who carried England's hopes for a championship on his shoulders. In 2001, these sworn archrivals met for the longest and greatest tennis match of all time: a seven-day, five-set marathon that took literally everything out of them. »

Andy Samberg and Kit Harington Go Head-to-Head in Full 7 Days In Hell Trailer

22 June 2015 11:55 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

HBO has released the first full trailer for their upcoming comedy short 7 Days in Hell, which stars Andy Samberg and Kit Harington as rival tennis champs embroiled in the longest, grandest, and most utterly absurd match in Wimbledon history. Samberg stars as Aaron Williams, malcontent and adopted brother of tennis royalty Serena and Venus Williams, and Harington as his opponent Charles Poole, a staggeringly dumb tennis prodigy. Directed by Jake Szymanski (Saturday Night Live, Brooklyn Nine-Nine), the 45-minute short is a mockumentary retelling of the legendary Williams-Poole seven-day fiasco, featuring cameos from tennis pros John McEnroe and Serena Williams, as well as Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Howie Mandel, and June Squibb as the queen, because HBO knows about good casting. I'm getting a real Blades of Glory vibe here, which is a very good thing in my book. Samberg is rocking a very Chazz Michael Michaels attitude, »

Watch Human Firework Explode in Extreme 'America's Got Talent' Stunt

17 June 2015 5:15 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"America's Got Talent" was on fire Tuesday night, with several auditions held outdoors to showcase major stunts. There was Damone Rippy, the 16-year-old flyboarder who got the girls squealing, the Metal Mulisha freestyle motocross team performing "Kiss of Death," and Wally Glen -- who calls himself Pyro Boy, despite seeming closer to senior citizen than senior in high school.

For his act, Pyro Boy covers his body in fireworks, dances around, and explodes on stage. Hearing this, judge Howard Stern announced, "I feel like I've been institutionalized and we're all in one crazy house together, 'cause this sounds nuts to me. I mean, do women get excited by this when they see you covered in fireworks?" Pyro Boy: "They find it hot." Haha. Ba dum dum. But seriously, sometimes they should consider changing the name of the show to "America's Got Issues."

Pyro Boy's audition was set to "Also sprach Zarathustra, »

The 6 most surprising things about summer reality TV (so far)

10 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The summer TV season has barely started and already, there's been a flood of new reality TV shows, everything from Fox's fun "Bullseye," which is basically a reboot of "Fear Factor" but without the gross stuff, to CBS' "The Briefcase," which is just cruel. There's a lot more to come, too. In two weeks, "Big Brother" returns for its three-episodes-a-week, 24/7-online-feeds onslaught of game play and ridiculous competitions. Later this month, ABC is resurrecting "Battlebots" (June 21), and a month after that,  Caitlyn Jenner's series "I Am Cait" will debut on E! (July 26). Those are just a few of the dozens of other reality shows that will be airing on broadcast and cable networks this summer (here's my list of them all). But over the past few weeks, several shows have offered unexpected moments and surprised us. Some of the shows are summer staples, and some are brand-new, but they've »

7 Days In Hell Teaser Sets Andy Samberg and Kit Harington As Tennis Rivals

5 June 2015 8:07 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Get ready for hot tennis action! HBO has released the first teaser for their upcoming tennis-rivalry mockumentary, 7 Days in Hell, which looks back at the tournament that pitted Andy Samberg's Aaron Williams against Kit Harington's Charles Poole. The quick glances we get at the film suggests that director Jake Szymanski, a veteran director of Saturday Night Live and numerous Funny or Die sketches, will be making fun of founding works of the mockumentary genre, including The Blair Witch Project. The film will also utilize tennis stars the likes of John McEnroe and Serena Williams to give the film just the slightest hint of legitimacy amongst the seemingly plentiful guffaws. On top of that, the film will co-star Lena Dunham, Will Forte, Michael Sheen, Mary Steenburgen, Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Howie Mandel, and June Squibb.
