Macaulay Culkin Heads to Sitcoms

31 October 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin has signed to star in his own sitcom on American TV network NBC next year. The 23-year-old actor has already met with Late Night host Conan O'Brien - a former writer on The Simpsons - about the possibility of collaborating on a project. NBC's development boss Kevin Reilly says of Culkin, "We're going to use him in an unconventional way. I don't think you'll see Macaulay as a straight-down- the-middle romantic lead. I think you'll see him in something surprising, a little offbeat." Macaulay's comic timing caught the attention of network bosses when he took on a guest-starring role in hit sitcom Will & Grace. Reilly explains, "He came out and just did a great turn on that show. He reminded everyone here that he possesses genuine talent. There are certain child stars who figure out how to translate that talent to adulthood, and I think Macaulay's been waiting for the right time to come back and re-emerge as a star." »

24 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NEW YORK -- Despite double-digit dips in primetime among younger adults, NBC has kept its late-night audience intact from last season while CBS' viewership has gone through the floor. CBS has lost so many adults 18-34 in the first four weeks of the season that NBC's Late Night With Conan O'Brien has surpassed Late Show With David Letterman by a wide margin, a 1.2 rating vs. a 1.0, according to Nielsen Media Research. Letterman's losses in the demo are staggering, down 40% from this point in the season a year ago. Similarly, The Late Late Show With Craig Kilborn is off 29% and trails ABC's new entry, Jimmy Kimmel Live by a 0.6 to a 0.5 in the demo. »

NBC takes 'Pride' in ani series

14 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

NBC is jumping into the white lion's den with a 13-episode order for a groundbreaking CG animated series from DreamWorks TV about the lives of the family of lions who perform in Siegfried & Roy's Las Vegas magic show. Titled Father of the Pride, the half-hour family comedy is targeted to debut in fall 2004. Peter Mehlman (Seinfeld) and Jonathan Groff (Late Night with Conan O'Brien) have been tapped to write the pilot episode. "This is going to be the most anticipated series of the fall of 2004," NBC entertainment president Jeff Zucker said. "This is the first time this technology has been seen on TV. The fact that DreamWorks has become the dominant film animation studio in town and is now going to take its act to TV is a big deal." The project is the brainchild of DreamWorks SKG principal Jeffrey Katzenberg, who originally conceived it as a feature about 18 months ago. "I love animals, and I love the satire of being able to look at our world through their eyes," Katzenberg said. "I was watching the (Siegfried & Roy) show and the idea popped into my head: What must those lions be thinking? What must their life be like?" »
