Lifetime’s latest project is “all for you!”
The cabler announced Monday that it has given a six-episode, straight-to-series order to Damien, a sequel drama based on the 1976 horror classic The Omen.
Written and executive-produced by former Walking Dead showrunner Glen Mazzara, Damien follows the adult life of evil Omen child Damien Thorn, who must come to terms with being the Antichrist after growing up unaware of the satanic forces around him.

Bob Barker, the former host of "The Price is Right," brings his animal advocacy to a whole new level in this clip from "The Bold and the Beautiful." Barker, who became a vegetarian in 1979, always signed off each show reminding viewers to spay and neuter pets; he's also donated millions of dollars to various advocacy groups and programs, including $5 million to the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society for an anti-whaling ship.
The nonagenarian lands quite a few punches on Wyatt Spencer (Darin Brooks) after hearing Wyatt talk smack about animal lovers - but not before advising the young man to consider adopting a pet himself. Barker told TV Guide, "CBS and ['B&B' exec producer] Brad Bell have been incredible about using the soap to increase awareness. And if I get a chance to punch out a guy who thinks animal lovers are stupid wackos, even better!" Hey, Wyatt's got a pretty punchable face.

CBS Radio News confirmed the news with a Tweet:

Pardo lent his voice to every season of “SNL” except one, making his the longest tenure of anyone associated with the show (creator Lorne Michaels was away for five years in the 1980s). He also missed one episode in 2013 due to a hip injury. “SNL” alum Darrell Hammond filled in for him then, doing his best Pardo impression throughout the show.
Since his official retirement from NBC in 2004, Pardo would often pre-record the “SNL” intros from his home in Arizona.
A 2010 inductee into the Television Hall of Fame, Pardo also served as the announcer »

Veteran television and radio announcer Dominick “Don” Pardo, best known as the voice of Saturday Night Live, has died. He was 96.
Pardo passed away Monday evening, an NBC rep confirms to TVLine.
Pardo retired from NBC in 2004, but continued to provide the introductions for SNL — most recently, pre-recording them from his home in Arizona. He had only missed one season of SNL — the show’s seventh — giving him a longer tenure than even Lorne Michaels (who stepped away for five seasons).
“I can’t imagine the show without [Don],” Michaels once said, “and as long as he’s there, I stay young. »
When Wes Ball finished reading The Maze Runner, the first book in James Dashner’s hugely popular trilogy about a group of teenage boys mysteriously imprisoned by the sky-high walls of a seemingly impossible-to-crack maze, his mind started spinning as he began to think about what Dashner’s world would look like. He hadn’t even signed on to direct the movie yet, but, with a background in VFX it just seemed natural.
“I went and pulled up some of the 3D assets I made for Ruin,” Ball says of his arresting 2012 short about a post-apocalyptic universe. “This one image »

Ah, the long-running phenomenon of the TV game show. These programs may be appointment viewing for you every night or just something you stumble upon when you're home sick from work, but we've all indulged in the great television pastime of watching other people win (and lose) money on the small screen at some point.
There are a whole slew of game show series that have stood the test of time. For instance, the original "Jeopardy" premiered back in 1964 and "The Price is Right" has been kicking since the early '70s. One show hitting a milestone is "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" -- the U.S. version of the quiz program first aired on August 16th, 1999, so it's about to hit its 15th anniversary. Yup.
But not all game shows are as lucky. Sure, some of them live on through syndication and Game Show Network re-runs and occasionally there's modern reboot, »

Lucy should win the weekend, marking the first time a film helmed by director Luc Besson has captured the top spot since all the way back in 1997 (The Fifth Element). Has any other director gone 17 years between winsc The only thing that could derail it is that R rating. Only four weekends in 2014 have had an R winner -- Lone Survivor, 300: Rise of an Empire, Neighbors and 22 Jump Street. Four out of 29, not promising, but the tracking is there, and even though Scarlett Johansson has no actual track record of box office success as the lead, I'm willing to take the plunge and bring it in at $34.9 million. The other game in town is Hercules. I can't think of anyone who wants to see this, though clearly Mtc tracking doesn't exclusively poll my pals. I'm going slightly high at $24.5 million, but this one is a mystery. Given the non-success »

This will be my third year attending the venerable Fantasia International Film Festival here in Montreal, and this year’s slate does not disappoint. I was asked to pick the five movies I was the most excited to see. This proved to be a difficult task, seeing as how my original list had upwards of thirty titles. But here are the five that have got me the most intrigued.
Directed by Terry Gilliam
Even though this movie has been finished for a while and already released in certain territories around the world, there’s a sense that a new Terry Gilliam movie is some form of minor miracle. Stories of Gilliam’s distended budgets, lost projects, and squabbles with producers lend the director a kind of bizarre mystique. But by all accounts, this was the easiest time Gilliam had making a movie in a while. »

SAG-aftra’s national board has approved the tentative deal with production companies for a three-year master contract covering movie and primetime TV work.
Saturday’s action by the performers union board triggers a ratification vote by the 165,000 SAG-aftra members.
Postcards notifying members about voting will be mailed out July 23. Members can vote electronically or by paper ballot with a deadline of Aug. 22, when the votes will be counted.
The board met for more than 12 hours and recommended approval of the new deal with 90% of the board members in favor.
SAG-aftra and the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers reached the agreement July 4 following two months of negotiations. In a message to members that day, the union touted “significant gains” in the new tentative deal – including a compounded 8.7% hike in minimums over three years; unification of the SAG and AFTRA TV contracts; and improved terms and conditions and full TV »

"Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek became the answer to his own bit of trivia last week when the longtime game show host set a Guinness World Record for most episodes of a single game show hosted by the same presenter.
Trebek hit the milestone last Friday, when he wrapped his 6,829th episode of the venerable quiz show. The "Jeopardy!" host beat out former "The Price Is Right" host Bob Barker, the previous holder of the Guinness record.
Despite suffering several heart attacks throughout "Jeopardy!"'s 30-year run under his tenure, Trebek has never missed an episode due to illness. The only installment of the show he didn't helm during that timeframe came in 1997, when he switched duties with "Wheel of Fortune" host Pat Sajak for an April Fool's Day prank.
"It's an honor to hold the Guinness World Record for hosting Jeopardy!, which I've often said is the best of reality T. »
