MIPCOM pays heed to deepening influence of DVD format

7 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

LONDON -- That former Warner Home Video president Warren Lieberfarb is attending a television market like the upcoming MIPCOM event in Cannes, which opens Friday, is a mark of the extraordinary change DVD has wrought on the audiovisual business. The Godfather of DVD has been invited to pick up a lifetime achievement award for his pioneering of the format and to give a keynote speech during a day devoted to the all-conquering disc. Lieberfarb's presence is symbolic of the growing importance of DVD, not just to movie exploitation, but to the entire home entertainment canon. Deepening penetration of DVD players worldwide has tweaked the interest of distributors of all sorts of audiovisual products and has, in turn, broadened the scope of such television markets as MIPCOM and MIPTV. In a turbulent TV market, studios have recognized the strength of DVD and video as a highly profitable means of exploiting nonfilm product. While the studios have made much DVD capital out of the likes of Friends, The Sopranos, The Shield and Star Trek (in all its forms), independent distributors have also spotted that the TV markets offer the chance to examine product that can comfortably feed a release schedule. Event organizer Reed Midem has recognized the importance of the medium to the TV industry by setting up a DVD day Saturday with baldly commercial panels like "DVD: Delve Into the Revenue Potential." »

Shatner Slams Stale 'Star Trek'

14 March 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Acting veteran William Shatner may have gained fame by starring in the Star Trek series - but he believes the show is now "old hat." The 71-year-old star first shot to fame as Captain James T. Kirk in the 1966 TV series, but now he refuses to watch the many spin-off programs and films, believing they've lost what made them great. He says, "It needs something new. The people responsible for it have lost its way and they need to find it again. They need a whole new group of talent to give a fresh approach. By doing too many things, they have lost Star Trek's way because of greed." Despite his comments, Shatner was this week reunited with many former original cast members at the TV Land Awards, in which Star Trek won the Pop Culture award. He commented, "Here I am winning a Pop Culture Award and I am disconnected with pop culture. Whenever I get on these shows and they ask about pop culture I never know what to say." »

Bottoms elected to portray Bush in '9/11' telefilm

5 March 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Timothy Bottoms, who portrayed President Bush in Comedy Central's short-lived comedy series That's My Bush! is on track to reprise his role in a much more somber setting. Bottoms, 24 co-star Penny Johnson and Star Trek veteran George Takei are in talks to star in Showtime's telefilm DC 9/11, an inside look at Bush in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the decisions he and his administration faced. Johnson is expected to play National Security Adviser Condeleezza Rice, while Takei is in line to portray Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, who ordered the grounding of all aircraft in the skies over the United States soon after the attacks. Yet to be cast are the roles of Vice President Dick Cheney, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and Secretary of State Colin Powell. DC 9/11, written and produced by Lionel Chetwynd, will be directed by Daniel Petrie Sr. Johnson plays the president's (Dennis Haysbert) wife in Fox's real-time drama 24. Her credits also include HBO's The Larry Sanders Show and the 1997 feature Absolute Power. Takei is best known for his role as Capt. Hikaru Sulu in the Star Trek movies. Showtime declined comment Tuesday. »
