19 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The late casting director Marion Dougherty will be awarded the Television Academy’s 2014 Governors Award.

HFPA Settles Golden Globes Lawsuit with Dick Clark Prods.

14 July 2014 9:22 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. has reached a settlement with Dick Clark Prods. after nearly four years of litigation over the rights to the Golden Globe Awards.

The exact terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Both sides had been awaiting word from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, where the HFPA had been seeking to overturn a lower court ruling in favor of Dcp.

NBC has the rights to the Golden Globes through 2018, in an agreement the Dick Clark Prods. reached with the Peacock in 2010.

But the HFPA challenged Dick Clark Prods.’ contractual authority to do so, and filed suit against its longtime producer in 2010. Dick Clark Prods. contended that it could continue producing the show as long as it reached a broadcast deal with NBC, under a clause of a 1993 agreement that seemingly gave Dcp rights to produce the show in perpetuity.

Under the terms of the settlement, »

Interview: Kevin Hart Leads the Crew in ‘Think Like a Man Too’

19 June 2014 10:46 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Sequels just need a dose of energy and creativity, and then they work. The cast of “Think Like a Man Too” – including Kevin Hart, Regina Hall and Terrence Jenkins – provide that energy, as the gang from the first film heads to Las Vegas for a competing bachelor and bachelorette parties. The audience wins that contest.

Kevin Hart is arguably one of the hottest performers of the moment. Fresh from his record breaking stand-up film of last year, he hit a trifecta in late 2013 and early 2014 with the films “Grudge Match,” “Ride Along” and “About Last Night.” His quick wit and energy also has the character of appreciation, for the collaborator and director Tim Story, and his co-stars Terrence Jenkins and Regina Hall.

Casey Kasem: 10 Things You Didn’t Know About His Early Career

15 June 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Everybody knows that Casey Kasem was the voice of “American Top 40″ and countless cartoon characters for decades. But who could forget him on “Astrology for Young Lovers”? Or in “Scream Free!” Or as the host of “Shebang.”

In the 1960s and ’70s, Kasem, who died Sunday at age 82, logged roles in a string of B-grade independent features, from American International Prods. and others. He romped with wild bikinis, frisky teenagers, motorcycle clubs, “high on Jesus” types etc. He did a fair amount of on-camera TV work too, as a host and through gusts shots on “Baretta,” “Hawaii 5-0” and such. He was money on NBC’s “Dean Martin Celebrity Roast” specials, judging by the number of appearances he made.

But nothing plumped Kasem’s pocketbook like his commercial work. In 1973 his agent Charles Stern bragged that Kasem had voiced 600 commercials in four years. »

Maker Studios Teams Up With Jukin Media And Its Viral Video Library

24 April 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Two companies well-versed in the YouTube space are teaming up. Top multi-channel network Maker Studios has teamed up with Jukin Media and its library of user-generated content. Jukin Media has a "boutique"-sized McN of its own, and as part of the deal, Maker will manage and monetize Jukin's channels, which currently claim 400 million views a month. One channel of particular interest to Maker is FailArmy. Maker will build a specific website for the popular collection of viral video fails, which has nearly five million subscribers and is currently being shopped to foreign TV markets by Dick Clark Prodcutions. In exchange for the management assistance, Jukin will offer Maker its clip library, which includes an expansive collection of user-generated viral videos. Maker will use those clips to create programs featuring the network's partners. This strategy sounds similar to the one Fishbowl Worldwide Media has used to turn America's Funniest Videos »

Future Uncertain for Exiled Golden Globes Member as HFPA Attempts Rehab

14 April 2014 12:40 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

In Hollywood, a kiss-and-tell autobiography is Ok, but a kiss-and-mock book is out of the question.

Longtime Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. member and former president Philip Berk has taken a six-month leave of absence from the organization that hands out the Golden Globes, which was not pleased with his memoir “With Signs and Wonders.” His sabbatical means that he will not be attending meetings or voting. It’s not clear yet whether he automatically rejoins after six months, or whether the org and he will renegotiate his possible re-entry — or further repercussions.

At a time when the HFPA has been working to clean up its image, the book paints a negative portrait of the org, often with anecdotes from 10 to 20 years ago. Berk also talks about the contract talks with Dick Clark Prods., which produces the very profitable Golden Globes telecast and Berk does not portray the org’s negotiating skills in a favorable light. »

NBC, CBS Scramble for the Next Big Awards Show

5 March 2014 3:00 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Think the awards-season jockeying ended with the Oscars? Think again.

Competition among the networks for kudocasts is heating up because live events with celebrities are highly conducive to second-screen activity (aka snarky live tweeting).

NBC and CBS in particular are parrying with startup events that take aim at established franchises: The Eye has partnered with Dick Clark Prods. to launch the Hollywood Film Awards, which will air in the fall in the hope of becoming a pace setter for movie awards season — and in so doing steal some thunder from NBC’s Golden Globe Awards in January.

NBC has returned the favor by teaming with Ryan Seacrest Prods. and Clear Channel for the iHeart Radio Music Awards, to air live from the Shrine Auditorium on May 1.

That’s a salvo lobbed at CBS’ crown-jewel kudocast, the Grammys.

Ready, aim … envelope please!
