Upfronts: USA Network Grabs ‘SmackDown,’ Loads Up on Scripted Development

7 April 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is doubling down on WWE, bringing “SmackDown” over from Syfy next year as part of an effort to hike the volume of live programming on NBCUniversal’s flagship entertainment cabler.

The move of “SmackDown,” a slew of development projects, new programs featuring the Chrisley clan and summer scheduling announcements were unveiled Tuesday morning at USA Network’s press upfront gathering held at 30 Rock’s Rainbow Room.

USA Network president Chris McCumber made it clear in his presentation that the cabler is shifting the focus of its original programming to court a millennial audience. He noted that the generational shift of millennials now making up the largest component of the 18-49 audience is well under way. USA’s new shows are built around stories and characters that exhibit “bravery, optimism, self-reliance and hope” — all themes that resonate with millennials, per McCumber.

Boston College Hoops Scandal Subject of New Movie (Exclusive)

4 March 2015 7:13 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mad Hatter Entertainment is developing a movie project about the 1978-79 Boston College point-shaving scandal.

Michael Connolly’s production company has acquired movie rights to David L. Porter’s “Fixed: How Goodfellas Bought Boston College Basketball.”

The point-fixing scheme, which was orchestrated by mobster Henry Hill of the Lucchese crime family, involved several Boston College players attempting to hold down the score so that the team would fall short of the point spread.

The conspiracy was discovered when Hill was arrested on drug trafficking charges and resulted in the conviction of Jimmy “the Gent” Burke, wanted for masterminding the Lufthansa Airlines heist.

The FBI ultimately used this scandal to bring down one of the most powerful crime families in New York, responsible for multiple murders and the largest cash heist in U.S. history. Hill testified against his associates and went into the federal witness protection program.
