When Gil Goldschein took over as head of Bunim/Murray Productions in April, he knew he had big shoes to fill. The company's well-liked co-founder, Jonathan Murray, 59 — partner Mary-Ellis Bunim died in 2004 from cancer — had stepped aside after spending nearly three decades as a reality TV pioneer, first by co-creating The Real World in 1992 and later producing Project Runway and Keeping Up With the Kardashians, among dozens of shows. However, just four months into his gig, Goldschein has a headline-making show with E!'s I Am Cait, which debuted July 26 to 2.

Update: MTV exec Susanne Daniels is exiting the cable network to run originals at YouTube.
With Daniels’ departure, Mina Lefevre has been promoted to exec VP and head of scripted development.
Daniels, who’s been with MTV for three years, held the post of president of programming at MTV. In an internal memo to the net’s staff, she is said to be leaving to pursue another opportunity. Her YouTube position was announced shortly after the MTV on Wednesday.
During her time at the cabler, Daniels and her team launched scripted series “Finding Carter,” “Faking It” and “Scream,” all currently on MTV’s slate, plus the short-lived Victoria Justice vehicle “Eye Candy.” On the unscripted side, she was instrumental in developing dating show “Are You The One?” and “Broke A$$ Game Show.” She also worked on “Real World,” “Challenges,” “Ridiculousness” and “Fantasy Factory.”

It was the summer of 1995. Bill Clinton was president, Rudy Giuliani was mayor of New York, and Oj Simpson was on trial. That summer’s youth-oriented movies included Pixar's first movie Toy Story, the Disney musical Pocahontas — and Kids, in which wayward, stoned teens fuck each other senseless and head-stomp random strangers.
It might be hard to remember just how notorious Larry Clark's indie-skater odysey was. The movie grossed a modest $7 million at the box office that summer — a wild success when you account for the fact that it »
We've broken down the new Batman V Superman trailer. How much of this did you spot?
This article contains potential Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice spoilers.
If you weren't a fan of the first trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, perhaps this new one will make a believer out of you.
Not only is the new trailer considerably more action-packed, it puts an equal amount of spotlight on both Batman and Superman, and gives us our first look at Gal Gadot in action as Wonder Woman. Just on the off chance that you haven't seen it yet, or maybe just want to watch it again, here it is. Then we'll get into the deeper stuff.
But there's an awful lot to unpack in these three minutes, so we'd better get to it.

It's time for a spouse swap! On Friday's episode of "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," Kendra Wilkinson reaches her breaking point and tells estranged hubby Hank Baskett that she can no longer be his puppet. Fed up with the couple's road blocks, directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll decide to switch things up and have all of the couples swap spouses in order to break through their walls. The former NFL player is strategically paired with Tami Roman, who the 30-year-old has butted heads with all season long. In the exclusive sneak peek, we get a look at the "Real World" alum and the dad-of-two on a mock date -- and Tami can't help but bring up the drama with Kendra. "I brought up the dinner fight between Kendra and I when I was on the date with Hank because that's his woman," Tami explains in an interview. "I wanted him »

‘Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election’
Pity Wonga. Go on, try. Clobbered for £2.6m by the Financial Conduct Authority for sending out fake legal letters, faced with losses of £37.3m in 2014, considered so morally inferior for its exorbitant interest rates that even MPs and archbishops feel able to have a go at it, and all the while suffering the stigma of association with Newcastle United Fc. Its name is worse than mud. It is Wonga.
Having ditched those baffling ads featuring latex pensioners, it’s now rebranding itself as the lender of choice for the sort of people David Cameron successfully wooed at the last election. Hence this latest ad. “What are you responsible for?” asks a sensible lady voiceover, as we meet a dinner lady, »

That’s right Indie Game lovers, our day has come once again. The beloved, cyan-suited, side-scroller, Shovel Knight is taking big steps “into the Real World!!” as Yacht Club Games has put it. Earning over 100 awards (including tons of Game of the Year accolades) and more than 700,000 copies sold, our favorite spade-wielding hero will finally be coming to retail.
After Shovel Knight was successfully chosen to be distributed via Steam through the Greenlight initiative, it’s safe to say this might be one of Yacht Club Games’ biggest announcements to date. After all, it’s always interesting to see what affect the addition of physical copies (rather than just digital) has on the company and the game.
In the case of Shovel Knight, this is a bold and well-deserved leap for the franchise and clearly shows what’s possible with the support of a community and a little “good-ol-fashioned” video game luck. »

The companies said they will create "one of the world’s biggest independent production and distribution companies, and the largest not controlled by

It has been a long and pothole-ridden road to “Scream,” which premiered on MTV tonight (June 30). While the one-time music video channel has produced reality shows that have been both genre-defining and ratings-winning (including but not limited too “The Real World” and “Jersey Shore”), its history with scripted dramas makes the Philadelphia Phillies current win-loss record look impressive. MTV has been trying to break the scripted drama code for more than 20 years, with very little to show for it. Personal crises, sexual mischief, groundbreaking depictions of same-sex relationships and other elements that have worked for reality TV have rarely struck gold with the network’s audiences when an actual script supervisor involved. “Awkward” and “Teen Wolf” -- a pair of shows that premiered in 2011 -- are still on the air, and have garnered mostly positive reviews to go with small but devoted followings. (“Awkward” will begin airing its fifth and »

Despite being known for celebrating the unusual and the extreme, reality television might be the genre that has done the best job of normalizing the lesbian, gay and bisexual experience for America’s households.
While there will always be outliers like Phil Robertson of A&E’s “Duck Dynasty,” reality TV more frequently offers viewers a look into the lives of subjects like AIDS educator Pedro Zamora (who had a commitment ceremony on MTV’s “The Real World”) and Richard Hatch, the first winner of CBS’ “Survivor,” as well as more recent contestants on CW’s “America’s Next Top Model.”
“Reality TV has been significantly influential in changing the public perception of what it means to be gay or lesbian,” says Matthew Breen, editor-in-chief of the Advocate and deputy editor of Out magazine.
Breen says reality shows that feature gays make it easier for public figures like Neil Patrick Harris, »

Tna Wrestler Eric Young was part of the Slammiversary main event on Sunday night and after the show he took to Twitter to fire off an expletive-filled tweet.
Real world!!! If you watched #Slammiversary2015 and didn’t like it Go F**K Yourself #ProWrestling #proud #5thday #agame #teameffort
Young ended up deleting the tweet about a half hour later and then posted a censored version of it.

Young also responded to a fan that said he wanted Tna to go out of business. He makes a good point because wrestling fans shouldn’t want the company to die, »

Whether or not you agree with today's Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage(*), there can be no argument that this was a historic day in America. (*) And as a reminder, this blog is not the place to debate the merits of that ruling. In watching the news coverage of the decision, reading the official Court opinion and the four dissenting ones, it was hard not to think of the not insignificant role TV played in paving the way for this decision. This was a case that wound its way through the courts, just as the wave of state-level cases did over the last few years, and it involved lawyers and activists and politicians and judges. But it also involved changing attitudes across the country about gay people and same-sex relationships, and that's where pop culture in general and TV in particular come into play. TV shows come into our homes (and these days, »

Amongst animation fans, Ralph Eggleston is something of a legend.
Pixar hired Eggleston in 1992, when the studio was in full swing on the first "Toy Story" and he has served as a production designer, storyboard artist, writer and director. (In 2000, his short film, "For the Birds," won an Academy Award.) He has contributed substantially to every Pixar film and this week's "Inside Out" is no different.
For the brilliant new film that takes place inside the head of an 11-year-old girl, Eggleston served as Production Designer. And it's a pretty unbelievable task, conjuring forth worlds as vast as the human mind (including the subconscious, Dreamland Studios, where dreams are made, the Train of Thought, and, of course, Headquarters).
We sat down with Eggleston and talked about the film's lengthy development and production process, being part of the fabric of Pixar, and what he's got coming up next.

Schlubby working class hero, Crime And Punishment’s Porfiry Petrovich for primetime, fatherly fighter of crime... I was introduced to the rumple-coated and rumple-faced one back in 1987, following an off-hand attempt from my mother to get five-year-old me to sit down and shut up for a few minutes. Desperately looking for something to grab my attention, and zeroing in on what ITV happened to be repeating that Sunday, her “Oh, look! Columbo! You like him, don’t you?” – “Huh?” – “He’s the one with the cigar and coat, you know him!” got me to sit down, be quiet, and puzzle over whether or not I did like him. She turned out to be right – I liked him a lot.
By then in the late 80s, Lieutenant Columbo had been »
When Caitlyn Jenner revealed her transgender truth to Diane Sawyer on primetime TV, Lgbt issues were thrown under an ever bigger spotlight than ever before. And while scripted series have sporadically featured gay characters, unscripted television embraced the Lgbt community a long time ago.
Certainly television, in general, is far from having evenly distributed representation, with GLAAD’s 2014 annual report of diversity in television calculating only 3.9% of primetime scripted series regulars as members of the Lgbt community.
On all sides of equation, scripted or otherwise, television is experiencing an influx of Lgbt awareness, including Jenner’s new docu-series “I Am Cait” on E!, Laverne Cox’s recurring role in the scripted series “Orange Is the New Black,” Oyxgen’s docu-series “The Prancing Elites Project,” above, which follows an African-American, gay and gender non-conforming dance team, and TLC’s upcoming show “I Am Jazz” about 14-year-old trans teenager Jazz Jennings.

Don’t expect surprises when Emmy nominations and winners are announced in reality TV. The genre has seen no major hits and a few big thuds this past season, and with “American Idol” winding down, some folks are worried. “Reality television desperately needs new formats,” says Susanne Daniels, president of MTV programming. “I say that both as a viewer and an executive.” She adds with a laugh, “I wish I knew what they were!”
Since the reality explosion 15 years ago, viewers have overdosed on the familiar templates. Most agree that reality needs new formats — or innovations to the old ones. Lee Metzger of Crosshair Entertainment points out that the problem is not unique: Scripted series are basically using variations on formulas that date back to the 1950s. Similarly, “In reality TV, the formats themselves are working — it’s the approach that needs to be updated.”
He speaks with authority, since “The Voice” accomplished exactly that. »

Continuing her legacy. MTV stars took to Twitter and Instagram on Friday, June 12, to pay tribute to the late Diem Brown on what would have been her 35th birthday. Alums of The Challenge and Real World honored the beautiful TV personality and encouraged followers to recognize Brown's birthday by contributing to her charity MedGift. Before Brown's untimely death in November 2014 at the age of 34, she founded the charitable organization in support of patients dealing with cancer or other chronic conditions. Brown battled multiple forms of [...] »
