While Others Sing His Songs, Randy Travis Still Owns the Stage at Tribute Concert

9 February 2017 10:10 AM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

It was up to Garth Brooks to give the near-sellout crowd in Nashville what they wanted to hear most: Randy Travis’ voice.

Brooks was the final singer among more than 30 who came to honor the country legend on Wednesday night with a tribute concert at Bridgestone Arena.

“The hardest thing I believe I’ve ever done is sing one of your songs with you sitting right there,” Brooks announced to Travis, who was perched stage right with his wife, Mary, for the entire three-hour concert.

“So it’s gonna suck, but it’s all love,” Brooks said before launching into Travis’ signature hit, »

Behind the Scenes at ‘Face the Nation’ as Battle of Covering Trump Begins

23 January 2017 5:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Washington, D.C. — Lindsey Graham made some news, Kellyanne Conway delivered some spin, and Bernie Sanders challenged the new occupant of the White House to make good on a campaign promise by sending a tweet.

The first edition of CBS’ “Face the Nation” of the Trump era went smoothly on Sunday morning, but it played out against the backdrop of rising hostility from the nascent administration toward the mainstream news media. The challenge for CBS News and others in covering the presidency of Donald Trump is heightened by the depth of the political divisions in the country — a cultural Grand Canyon that was vividly displayed in Washington during President Trump’s inaugural weekend.

Face the Nation” anchor John Dickerson did his best to break through Conway’s armor of talking points in his top-of-the-show interview with Trump’s former campaign manager, who is now a counselor to the President. During her earlier appearance Sunday on NBC’s »

Conecta Fiction, A New International TV Series Co-Prod Event, Eyes Spanish-Speaking World

18 January 2017 5:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The first edition of Conecta Fiction, a pioneering TV co-production and networking event aimed at connecting the European, Latin American and the U.S. Hispanic markets, will run June 21-23 in the picturesque Santiago de Compostela, the capital of northern Spanish region Galicia.

Recovering from a double-dip recession, Spain boasts a considerable TV market and production sector, by far the largest in the Spanish-speaking world, investing $2.8 bullion in TV programming compared to an expenditure of  $1.5 billion for Mexico and $1.4 billion for Brazil.

A consequence of the golden age that Spanish TV fiction is living at home and abroad, as the demand for scripted fare lifts across much of the world, the launch of Conecta Fiction finally begins to put Spain on the level of other big European TV markets that already operate full or partially dedicated fiction TV co-production meetings, such as France’s Series Mania and a proposed Cannes TV festival, »

Mark Hamill's Joker Reads Donald Trump's Meryl Streep Tweets

15 January 2017 2:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Mark Hamill decided to reprise his iconic role as The Joker from Batman: The Animated Series in order to get a little political. He decided to take some of president-elect Donald Trump's tweets and read them as the Clown Prince of Crime and the internet absolutely loved it, even if many found it unsettling how well it worked. Now Mark Hamill has done the same for Trump's rant against Oscar winner and Hollywood legend Meryl Streep.

For those who maybe missed it, Meryl Streep went after Donald Trump during her acceptance speech at the Golden Globes after being awarded the Cecil B. DeMille award. The new Potus didn't take very kindly to that and went on a pretty aggressive Twitter rant against here. Just in case you need a refresher, here is what Donald Trump had to say about Meryl Streep.
