If you're curious about what went on behind the scenes of the art design of District 9, you'll want to bring home that hardcover book mentioned above, which details the whole laborious process.

"Don't ask, don't tell" (Dadt), a 17-year-old bill passed during the Bill Clinton Administration, which many believed represented a severe step back for gay rights and the civil rights movement has been repealed, according to the Washington Post.
"This victory belongs to all who fought to end #Dadt," tweeted President Barack Obama. "Let our allies in Congress know how grateful we are for their help."
Dadt, which forbid gay soldiers in the United States military from serving openly, was struck down in the U.S. Senate on Saturday, Dec. 18. It was a decisive vote of 65 to 31, with eight Republicans crossing the aisle to join 57 Democrats.
"Can't hold back the tears+pride," tweeted Lady Gaga, who had been using her pop star status to campaign for the bill's repeal. "We did it! Our voice was heard + today the Senate Repealed Dadt. A triumph for equality after 17 Years."

Chicago – Some studios slowly roll their catalog films out to Blu-ray as directors or actors release new films with which to tie-in but Lionsgate has decided that holiday season 2010 is the time to import most of Tyler Perry’s films to the HD format just as his “For Colored Girls” is turning out to be a critical and commercial disappointment. Catch up with five of his previously-released films along with the Blu-ray release of “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family: The Play.”
As far as a review goes, Lionsgate has always treated Tyler Perry fans well and these releases are no different. The HD video and audio are above-average and every film includes special features. As for the movies themselves, “Why Did I Get Married?” is easily the best (although the sequel is horrendous) and “The Family That Preys” has moments but I personally can’t stand anything »

NBC has announced that it will not be picking up a full season of Undercovers. The network has decided to axe the show due to falling ratings, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The pilot episode of the spy drama attracted 8.57m viewers in late September, but more recent episodes have failed to hit the 6m mark. Produced by J.J. Abrams, Undercovers stars Boris Kodjoe (more) »

Move over Outlaw, NBC has cancelled another new series. The spy dramedy Undercovers is ending its run after 13 episodes.
Undercovers revolves around a married pair of former spies who are pulled back into service after their close friend goes missing. The TV show features the talents of Boris Kodjoe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Mekia Cox, Carter MacIntyre, Gerald McRaney, and Ben Schwartz.
The series stumbled right out of the gate and attracted a disappointing 2.1 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic and 8.7 million viewers. In week two, the demo fell by 24% to a 1.6 rating and the numbers essentially kept on falling. Last night's episode hit a new demo low with a 1.3 rating and 5.913 million total viewers.
Though NBC ordered four additional scripts in mid-October, the studio suspected that that show's been doomed for quite awhile. Today, the »
A new drama about sexy spies from J.J. Abrams, the creator of Alias? That would seem to have “Hit” written all over it. And so it went that NBC’s Undercovers arrived this fall as one of the season’s most promising new shows. But even with an energetic pilot helmed by Abrams himself, appealing and strikingly attractive actors in the lead roles, and an undemanding, easy-breezy approach to storytelling, the newfangled Hart to Hart failed to stir any true passion among TV viewers. It bowed to weak numbers (8.6 million), and only grew weaker as the weeks progressed (Wednesday’s »

According to Variety, NBC has decided not to pick up the show's "back nine" episodes essentially canceling the series.
While its ratings has seen nominal improvement in recent weeks, it continued to struggle with the coveted 18-49 year old demographic with a 1.3 rating.
A much-hyped entry into this fall's offering, "Undercovers" was co-created and executive produced by "Lost" and "Alias'" J.J. Abrams. Alas, the gorgeous Blooms, caterers (played by Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw) who return to the C.I.A. after a five year absence, never quite caught on with viewers. Even as the mythology of why the C.I.A. sought to bring the couple back has started to emerge, it's apparently too little too late to capture viewers' attention. »
The magic touch of J.J. Abrams was not enough to save NBC's "Undercovers." The network announced it canceled plans to pick up the rest of the season for the spy drama. The new series was a ratings boondoggle for its Wednesday 8 p.m. slot. According to NBC, three more episode of "Undercovers" will air, on Nov. 10, Nov. 17 and Dec. 1. "The Sing Off" reality competition will commence on Dec. 8. "Undercovers" featured German born actor Boris Kodjoe and British actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw as caterers who have retired from the CIA, and then reinstated. »

NBC has elected not to pick up the back nine episodes of 'Undercovers,' effectively putting an end to the freshman show's short run.
Last night's episode of 'Undercovers' could only muster 5.8 million viewers, a series low since the show debuted a couple month ago. The poor rating was the final straw that left NBC little choice but to cancel any additional episodes. The remaining six episodes already produced are still expected to air.
NBC had high hopes for 'Undercovers,' starring Boris Kodjoe and Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Mr. and Mrs. Bloom, after winning a bidding war for the J.J. Abrams conceived concept last year. The show bears a resemblance to James Cameron's True Lies movie which is being developed into a television series by Lightstorm and Twentieth Century Fox TV. »
This just in, NBC has canceled Boris Kodjoe and Gubu Mbatha-Raw's spy series "Undercovers." Spearheaded by film and TV producer and screenwriter J.J. Abrams, the show, which aired on Wednesdays at 8 p.m., was the first primetime show on NBC to feature two Black leads since "The Cosby Show." The network has chosen to not to continue beyond the show's 13 episodes. "Undercovers" is currently filming its 12th episode. Meaning, if you want to see Boris' sexy self fight international crime, you better get it in over the next two Wednesdays. »
Well, actually, it’s no surprise right? Not to me anyway.
Nice try J.J. Abrams, but you just didn’t try hard enough! Opportunities like this (primetime, hour-long, drama series starring black people, on a major network) rarely come by, so it may be the last for a long while. Let the blame game begin!
Deadline says today, NBC decided not to pick up any more episodes from the series beyond the original 13-episode order. You’ll be able to watch the next 2 episodes over the next 2 weeks, and then the final original episode airing on December 1st.
I was actually one of the few who stayed with it through last night’s episode, even though I said I’d pretty much given up after the first 3.
Harry Lennix is to make a guest appearance in a forthcoming episode of NBC spy drama Undercovers. TV Squad reports that the former Dollhouse star will play Gary Bloom, the estranged older brother of Steven Bloom (Boris Kodjoe). Kodjoe admitted that he was surprised by the character's introduction, explaining: "I was told that I have a brother about a week before I shot with him, so that came out of nowhere! I read (more) »

Seems like mythology will become the forefront of Undercovers, making this viewer swallow his words about it being unnecessary in abundance.
Tonight's episode of Undercovers jump starts the mythological aspect of the show, which deals with why the Blooms were really called back into the CIA after a five year absence. This will take the show into a new somewhat serialized format, which is a sharp departure from the self-contained episodes fans have been used to.
TV Guide's Kate Stanhope spoke with one half of the Bloom equation, Boris Kodjoe, and Co-creator/Exec. Producer Josh Reims about the change in story structure and how it will benefit everyone in the end.
"Every episode we find out new elements and new aspects about this master plan that was in place even before they came back to the CIA," Kodjoe told Stanhope.
"They're kind of upset that they were sent into this »

Throughout its opening set of episodes, Undercovers has sent Stephen and Stephanie Bloom around the world in order to complete missions and save innocent lives.
But the NBC drama has now tasked the fictional couple with its most difficult mission yet: saving itself.
With just over five million viewers tuning in, the series has been a ratings disappointment for the network. Instead of giving it a full-season order, as NBC did for other new shows such as The Event and Outsourced, only four additional scripts for Undercovers have been ordered.
Therefore, with an eye on an extended run, producers say the spy drama will shift away from weekly missions and broaden storylines to include the mythology of why the Blooms were brought back to the CIA.
"They're kind of upset that they were sent into this dangerous field without knowing the exact reason why they were there," co-creator and executive »
