‘Star Trek: Renegades’ Sets World Premiere at LA’s Crest Theater in August (Exclusive)
“Star Trek: Renegades” will get its world premiere at the Crest Theater in Los Angeles on August 1, TheWrap has learned exclusively. The project is an independently produced TV pilot for a potential new “Star Trek” online series. In the film, The Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium crystals are disappearing. Space and time have folded around several planets, effectively isolating them from any contact with outside worlds, so Admiral Pavel Chekov (“Star Trek: Tos” star Walter Koenig), head of Starfleet Intelligence, turns to Commander Tuvok (“Star Trek: Voyager” star Tim Russ), Voyager’s former security officer and current head of the newly reorganized Section. »

Peg Lynch, Writer and Star of ‘Ethel and Albert,’ Dies at 98
Peg Lynch, who wrote and starred in the early TV sitcom “Ethel and Albert,” died Friday at her home in Becket, Mass. She was 98.
Lynch pioneered writing and performing her original characters — live on stage — decades before such figures as Tina Fey and Amy Schumer. Jerry Seinfeld was far from the first comic to make a show about the mundane lives of single New Yorkers; that too can be credited to Lynch.
“Ethel and Albert” followed the ordinary life of a young married couple, Ethel and Albert Arbuckle, who lived in an American town called Sandy Harbor. The domestic comedy would include life’s everyday bemusements such as balancing the family budget or entertaining guests at a party.
In her heyday, Lynch and co-star Richard Widmark performed the happy couple on radio programs five days a week.
By 1950, the show was being adapted to the smallscreen co-starring Alan Bruce as the man of the house. »
