The boys in pinstripes are hitting the Great White Way. “Bronx Bombers” a new play written and directed by Eric Simonson, will begin performances on Broadway starting next year, and will use the story of baseball legend Yogi Berra to shine a light on the sport’s most successful franchise.

Marin Hinkle, best known for playing Jon Cryer’s disapproving ex-wife on “Two and a Half Men,” will take her withering looks to the Off-Broadway stage in the Roundabout Theatre Company’s upcoming revival of “Dinner with Friends.” In addition to spending nine seasons on the CBS sitcom smash, Hinkle has extensive theater credits including Broadway productions of “Electra” and “A Thousand Clowns” and such Off-Broadway shows as “Graceland” and “Miss Julie.” “Dinner With Friends” won the Pulitzer when it premiered in 2000. It’s a wry and witty look at two couples who are close friends, but are forced to grapple with the. »

Undoubtedly stepping onto the coattails of The Breakfast Club and such similar 80s outings with this poster, The Geography Club is being released by Huffington Pictures which is, yes indeed, stems somewhat from the online kinda-news channel The Huffington Post.
However, the film is an adaption of Brent Hartinger’s novel, in which the focus is Russel (played by Cameron Dean Stewart), who finds companionship in a group of students all hiding their sexual preferences, so this could definitely be a new twist – and an up-to-date one – dealing with honest, modern-day issues. It’s been recently picked by Shoreline Entertainment, and their CEO Morris Ruskin had this to say:
“This film is a clever, feel-good, coming-of-age story with an important social message. Cameron Deane Stewart delivers an outstanding performance along with a magnificent supporting cast.”

Shoreline Entertainment has picked up "Geography Club," an upcoming adaptation of Brent Hartinger's novel of the same name. The film, from Huffington Pictures, is produced by Michael Huffington and Anthony Bretti. (Huffington is the former husband of this site's Editor-in-Chief.)
"Geography Club" focuses on Russel (Cameron Dean Stewart), who finds companionship in a group of students all hiding their sexual preferences. Nikki Blonsky, Marin Hinkle and Scott Bakula co-star in the film, which is based on the first novel in Hartinger's Russel Middlebrook series.
"This film is a clever, feel-good, coming-of-age story with an important social message. Cameron Deane Stewart delivers an outstanding performance along with a magnificent supporting cast," Shoreline CEO Morris Ruskin said in a statement.
"Geography Club" does not yet have a release date. Check out the film's first poster, debuting here at Huffington Post, below:

HollywoodLife.com has an exclusive clip from the Jan. 21 episode of ‘Deception.’ Enjoy!
Nobody likes being ambushed with questions on the street — especially when the questions are “Did your brother kill your sister?” and “Did you know your sister was a junkie?” So you can imagine how Julian (Wes Brown) feels about the swarm of paparazzi bugging him in HollywoodLife.com‘s exclusive clip from the Jan. 21 episode of Deception. Not great.
In fact, he quickly takes the Edward (Tate Donovan) route by man-handling one of the reporters, which really only incites the mob even more. Fortunately, Joanna (Meagan Good) is waiting in the wings to save the day. And by “waiting,” I obviously mean “lurking,” because that’s what Joanna does. She lurks.
Joanna manages to keep Julian out of too much trouble, but she’s forced to let loose her inner law enforcement officer to do so, which »

"...when 'Vivian Bowers', a famous socialite, is found dead from an overdose, her best friend, 'Detective Joanna Locasto', begins to uncover the truth of what really happened..."
Click the images to enlarge and Sneak Peek "Deception"...
- M. Stevens
All families are complicated, and coming off of the holidays, few would disagree. But few families are quite as complicated as the Bowerses.
The Bowerses are the family of NBC's drama "Deception," premiering Monday, Jan. 7. The family has amassed the sort of obscene wealth that usually comes at others' expense. This features people behaving really badly and expecting to get away with it because they are so rich.
The pilot is crowded as it tries to lay the foundations for many stories, but stick with it. By the second episode, the pace improves, and the characters are more nuanced, and by the third, it becomes compelling.
Set in New York and Connecticut, the show opens with the death of the family's adult daughter. It was initially considered a drug overdose, but Vivian was clearly beaten. Figuring out who did it sets up the series.

Chicago – The brain trust of programmers at NBC continues to make baffling decisions, producing yet another soap-covered drama that feels like it could have been created by a computer trying to replicate the success of other networks. Take a bit of ABC’s “Revenge,” a bit of AMC’s “The Killing,” and a dozen daytime soap operas and throw them in a shredder. Despite some decent performances from a cast too talented for the writing here, “Deception” is simply a generic waste of time. It too often reminds one of shows that do the same thing in a more entertaining fashion. Just watch one of them instead.
Television Rating: 1.5/5.0
I’ll admit that soap operas aren’t my number one genre of choice but I can still tell when one is working and when one is flopping. There’s a confidence on display in the first season of “Revenge” or »
