From 1987 to 1990, Debbie Gibson was the teen pop princess. With 9 top 40 hits, 2 multiplatinum albums and constant video rotation on MTV, she was on top. As the pop stardom inevitably cooled, Gibson found a home on Broadway. She made forays into reality TV and kept writing and recording music independently. She also worked with children in summer music camps. Gibson drew on this experience to star in Summer of Dreams, a TV movie that will premiere on the Hallmark Channel on Aug. 27.

NBC Bets on Maya Rudolph, Martin Short to Revive a TV Mainstay

26 May 2016 9:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

With the buzz around Beyonce’s “Lemonade” still fresh, many people have been asking Maya Rudolph to do her popular impression of the singer just one more time. Will she? “It’s got to be right,” the comic actress says in her best Beyonce voice. “It’s got to be just a little sour, and just a little bit sweet.”

Rudolph may find her moment next week, when she and actor Martin Short – known for everything from “Sctv” to giving voice to “The Cat In The Hat” on PBS – tackle an interesting mission. On May 31 at 10 p.m. on NBC, the pair will launch “Maya & Marty” a six-episode exploration of what for  a younger generation of viewers will be a new frontier: a variety show, complete with special guests, singing and comic sketches. Not everyone could hold their own under such circumstances, but Short and Rudolph can do more than just get laughs. »
