17 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

A report surfaced last week revealing that Downton Abbey is ending after Season 6, since the cast members' contracts all expire with this upcoming season, and most of them are ready to move on. Today, Carnival Films and Masterpiece on PBS confirmed that the show will come to an end after Season 6, although executive producer Gareth Neame revealed to E! Online that the producers are contemplating a Downton Abbey movie. Here's what he had to say below.

"Our position on that is we would be very interested in that. It is definitely something we're contemplating. It would be great fun to do. I think it would be a wonderful extension of everything that people loved about the TV show, but I can't confirm that it's definitely going to happen. We shall see."

19 March 2015 5:30 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

"Break the internet." The phrase has been used a little too often ever since a certain somebody posed for a decidedly non-Sesame Street-friendly magazine cover last year. But Cookie Monster might be the only one who didn't see that infamous cover, because he's investigating exactly what it means to break the internet. "Why everyone breaking the internet?" he asks. He brings up a good point. Cookie Monster, who recently told People his favorite celeb Sesame Street guests, is not alone in his quest to understand, either. He's got Grumpy Cat beside him. Although Grumpy is not exactly helpful, »

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to both star in and produce Fraggle Rock: The Movie, nearly three and a half years after New Regency picked up the rights back in October 2011. The project has been in various stages of development for nearly a decade, with The Jim Henson Company first announcing the feature film back in October 2006. We last reported on the adaptation in October 2012, when screenwriters James Ward Byrkit and Alex Manugian signed on to write the screenplay.

It isn't immediately clear what role Joseph Gordon-Levitt will play in Fraggle Rock: The Movie quite yet. The actor will produce alongside The Henson Company's Lisa Henson. Here's what Joseph Gordon-Levitt had to say about Fraggle Rock: The Movie in a statement.

Before becoming the big star that he is today, Joseph Gordon-Levitt was a child actor, and he had roles in films geared towards younger audiences, such as Beethoven (a bit part), Angels in the Outfield, and 10 Things I Hate About You. And now he's heading back to more family friendly fare as Variety reports Gordon-Levitt will produce and star in the new film adaptation of Jim Henson's classic puppet series Fraggle Rock set up at New Regency.

Gordon-Levitt sounds pretty excited about the project saying: "The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock.'

Joseph Gordon-Levitt Heading Up 'Fraggle Rock' Movie

19 March 2015 12:19 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

First time I wrote about the possibility of a "Fraggle Rock" movie was back in 2006 when The Jim Henson Company officially announced a full length feature based on the stars of the 1980s HBO television show was in development with Ahmet Zappa working on the screenplay. Nothing happened ended up happening with that project, though two years later The Weinstein Co. picked up the rights to the live-action musical feature and brought on Hoodwinked director Cory Edwards to write and direct. Once again, nothing came of it. Now, here we are, seven years later and we are talking about the Fraggles yet again as it seems they just won't go away. This time around it's Joseph Gordon-Levitt on board to produce and star in the live-action "Fraggle Rock" movie for New Regency, The Henson Co. and Lisa Henson. The attachment of an actual star certainly gives the project far more »

Cookie Monster is the life coach you need

When I think of the wisest "Sesame Street" cast members, I think about classic cast members like Maria, Gordon, and maybe even Snuffleupagus. Cookie Monster doesn't seem like the sagest Muppet, but as this video proves, he's years ahead of his time. Watch as Cookie Monster gives essential counseling to some dejected humans. You could learn something about yourself and the power of cookies. »
