The educational system and its failures and successes are always relevant, but lately our nation's schools have been moved to the forefront of our pop-culture sensibilities with David Guggenheim's disheartening documentary, "Waiting for Superman." In promoting the new film, Guggenheim showed us the worst of our schools -- highlighting everything from budget problems to unqualified teachers.
NBC's brand-new renovation show, "School Pride," hopes to inspire some hope in a seemingly hopeless situation. "There are endless problems with the education system in this country - I'm not trying to pretend there aren't," executive producer Denise Cramsey tells Zap2it. "But the one thing we found in 'School Pride' is that there's a lot to be positive about. There are really great teachers, and there are really smart, mature students who care about their communities. Hopefully, when the show comes on, people will find a little hope in that. »
The executive producers of this new NBC reality show discuss their school-makeover series
NBC's new reality series School Pride, which revitalizes deteriorating schools all across the country, will premiere on Friday, October 15 at 8 Pm Et. Two of the show's executive producers, actress Cheryl Hines and Denise Cramsey, recently held a conference call to discuss their new show, and here's what they had to say:
I wanted to ask you about the selection of Tom Stroup and what you think he brings to the show?
Cheryl Hines: Well we love Tom for lots of reasons. He is a leader. We were looking for a strong leader and he's also very good with kids and with people. And on top of that, he knows how to build and fix things. So there a lot of reasons why Tom was a great choice for us.
He's pretty photogenic too it seems like. »
The first Space Chimps wasn’t exactly an animation triumph when it hit theaters back in 2008, nor did it stand up as a decent film. Jokes fell flat, the premise was weak, and the animation felt years behind even some of the smaller independently produced CGI films. It wasn’t a promising venture from Fox animation and invoked questions as to whether or not they had any hope in the field without a supplementary production house like Ice Age’s Blue Sky Studios behind it. Perhaps the most perplexing aspect of the Space Chimps sequel, Zartog Strikes Back, is that it seems a genuine regression in animation quality from its studio’s earlier ventures like Happily N’Ever After and Valiant. Nothing works in this direct-to-dvd sequel, and it’s hard to understand under which merits it was greenlit.
If you’ve been following along, at the end of the first Space Chimps, »

Because you couldn't get enough of those lovable animated apes the first time around, and because the conclusion of Zartog's imprisonment in stone just couldn't last, Fox has seen fit to give us a second Space Chimps movie as of October 5th. Yes, my friends, Space Chimps 2: Zartog Strikes Back exists, and you can win it on DVD. Have some kids desperate for monkey antics? Have some kids who should be on Adderall but you figure a movie about space-traveling chimps and departiclization rays might just do the trick as you run out to the grocery store? Well, then, we've got just what you need.
The film follows Comet, who is usually left at mission control, but longs to venture into space like his chimp-colleagues. Comet gets the chance to travel to Planet Malgor where he meets Kilowatt, the once shy alien, and lives out his ultimate fantasy of exploring outer space. »

We present the facts about this incisive education-themed documentary from Oscar winner Davis Guggenheim so you don't have to cram.

Students in "Waiting for Superman"
After his last filmmaking effort, "An Inconvenient Truth," took the Oscar for Best Documentary, director Davis Guggenheim had the bar set rather high for his future projects. He seems to have met the challenge as his latest work, "Waiting for Superman," has been generating awards-show buzz and serious acclaim since it debuted at the Sundance Film Festival early this year. ("Superman" won the fest's Documentary Audience Award.)
MTV News has been following the poignant film, from its start at Sundance to the debut of the first trailer, and even logged some conversation time with Guggenheim. The arresting documentary finally arrived in theaters on Friday (September 24), and we've gathered all the facts you need to know.
First of all, what's all the fuss about? »

Los Angeles — It's already taken the Sundance Film Festival by storm — both with critics and audiences — creating buzz from within the U.S. Department of Education, and it has found major-league celeb support from the likes of Oprah Winfrey and Bill Gates. So what more can "Waiting for Superman," Davis Guggenheim's glaring examination of our nation's school system do?
MTV News hit up the film's L.A. premiere Monday to find out.
"The movie has a chance to help change our schools," Guggenheim said. "We really need to do it. I think our schools are in big trouble — not just in schools 'over there'; schools everywhere are in trouble. It's a great film, »
Vanessa Hudgens, Kristen Bell, and Mandy Moore walked the red carpet on Friday before heading in to take their seats at the Stand Up 2 Cancer phone banks in La. The hour-long telethon was broadcast on multiple major networks and streamed across the web, and the effort raised more than $100 million dollars for research in the fight against the disease. Modern Family's Sofia Vergara and mom-to-be Christina Applegate, both of whom battled cancer in the past, proudly modeled t-shirts that read "Survivor." Gwyneth Paltrow arrived on the West Coast on Thursday, ready to add her support to the event after attending Fashion's Night Out in London last week. She caught up with Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, while Rob Lowe joined Diane Lane. Cindy Crawford, and Chuck's Zachary Levi helped in collecting donations, and fresh-from-Mexico Ryan Seacrest also lent his star power to the cause. Contributions to the charity are still being accepting, »
“Cancer doesn’t care how many Oscars you’ve won or how many tough guys you’ve played,” said the actor, who is currently battling stage 4 throat cancer.
A huge number of stars took part in the event – simulcast live and commercial-free on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, Bio, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, Mlb Network, mun2, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, The Style Network, TV One, and VH1 – including Elizabeth Banks, Kathy Bates, Sir Richard Branson, Michael Chiklis, George Clooney, Baron Davis, Emily Deschanel, Bill Hader, Dorothy Hamill, Anne Heche, Cheryl Hines, Randy Jackson, George Karl, Dr. Jon Lapook, Rob Lowe, Jane Lynch, Marlee Matlin, Shareen Mitchell, Olivia Munn, Lisa Niemi, Kelly Osbourne, Gwyneth Paltrow, Matt Passmore, Will Smith, Sam Trammell, Denzel Washington, Aaron Yoo, Renee Zellweger, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Tatyana Ali, »
A-list actresses, comedians, singers and newscasters came out in droves Sept. 10 for a singular cause — cancer. Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow, Renee Zellweger, Ryan Seacrest and Seth Rogan worked the phone banks for an hour and a half taking donations while artists like Stevie Wonder, Natasha Bedingfield and Martina McBride sang in the background.
What did you miss by watching the special on TV? For starters, Reese Witherspoon’s, “the dishes can wait – pick up the phone” segment was pre-taped, as was George Clooney’s. Ditto for Lady Antebellum and Green Day singer Billy Joe Armstrong’s performances — both of which I was completely bummed to not have seen live. Luckily, we got some epic performances from Heart, Michael Jackson’s prodigy Orianthi, Stevie, Natasha, Martina, Leona Lewis, The Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart and »

It's nice to know not all Hollywood divorces are messy. Case in point: Cheryl Hines... "You know what," Hines told us earlier today at the Stand Up to Cancer telethon in Los Angeles, "it's an adjustment [but] I married a really great guy, so we still have a really great relationship." The 44-year-old Curb Your Enthusiasm star and producer-manager Paul Young announced their split about two weeks ago, after quietly filing for divorce on July 20. According to a statement released by Hines' rep on August 23, "They will remain extremely close friends" and will raise their 6-year-old daughter, Catherine Rose, together. »

The season finale of Curb Your Enthusiasm left Cheryl Hines in an interesting position: Would her character rekindle a relationship with her estranged husband Larry David, or was her habit of not using a coaster too much for him to bear? When I ran into Hines at an Emmy party recently, I tried to pry her for information about how involved she'll be in the upcoming eighth season, but as you'll see, she had a spoiler policy even Matthew Weiner would be impressed by. »
