R.I.P. Jeffrey Hodes

14 September 2011 7:22 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Comedy writer Jeffrey Hodes has died suddenly from cancer treatment-related complications. He was in his 40s. Hodes had cancer but was in remission and was getting ready for a bone marrow transplant. He went in yesterday for a blood transfusion in preparation for the transplant when he started having breathing problems. An Mri revealed blood in his brain and, after a day in intensive care, he was taken off life support this afternoon. For his entire career, Hodes worked with Nastaran Dibai, who was his wife and writing partner. Hodes is survived by Dibai and their young daughter.

Drescher Pens Children's Book

12 September 2011 6:35 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actress Fran Drescher has penned a children's book.

The Nanny star's Being Wendy is a book that encourages kids to embrace their talents and interests, and, for Drescher, the story's message hits close to home and mirrors her own upbringing.

She tells the New York Post, "I felt I had a message to share... Be who you are... The story was inspired by my own childhood. I was a young person with extremely diverse interests which was very atypical of the world I grew up in...

"This is a story about a girl named Wendy who doesn't want to be just one thing, kind of like me... Kids should be encouraged to follow their passions, try new things and explore."

Drescher's book will hit stores in November. »

Niche, Scripted Programming Faces Tough Road to TV

19 August 2011 8:17 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

If you haven’t seen or heard of it, Half-Share, a show about six gay men vacationing on Fire Island, is hilarious. But as Edge Media editor Steve Weinstein noted, it may be “the funniest sitcom you’ll never see on TV.” Despite praise from audiences at festivals and screenings, Half-Share, like most pilots, remains unsold. At a panel Weinstein organized at New York's Lgbt Community Center, creator Sean Hanley, Here Media’s Josh Rosenzweig, Logo TV’s Christopher Willey and Us Weekly’s Bradley Jacobs, got together to discuss why gay cable networks in particular are having a difficult time with scripted content, despite seeming demand. "Don't you think a gay network needs a signature show?" asked Hanley, referring to the rise of nondescript reality television on cable. Hanley, a TV alum (The Nanny), produced the half-hour pilot independently to pitch to television networks. Having screened at the multiple festivals, »

The Nanny: Cast Reunions Coming to Happily Divorced

27 July 2011 2:15 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Though the CBS sitcom ended 12 years ago, many will always think of Fran Drescher as her character from The Nanny. Drescher has no problem with that though and has invited two Nanny vets to guest on her new show, Happily Divorced.

On August 3rd, Drescher's mom from The Nanny, Renee Taylor, will play an old friend of Fran's mom on the new series, played by Rita Moreno. On the August 17th season finale, Charles Shaughnessy (Drescher's former TV boss/husband) will play a potential new suitor but, is he interested in Fran or her gay ex-husband, Peter (John Michael Higgins)?

Happily Divorced was renewed for a second season of 12 episodes last week.

Here's the press release from TV Land:

'Happily Divorced': What did you think of Fran Drescher's new show?

16 June 2011 12:22 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Inspired by her real-life experience, Fran Drescher's "Happily Divorced" is about a woman (named Fran!) whose husband of 18 years, Peter, discovers that he's gay. Naturally, they get divorced, but because of their financial situation, they continue to live together in their house.

Drescher and her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson, are the executive producers. After their 1999 divorce and his subsequent coming out, Drescher and Jacobson remained close and continued to work together to further equal rights for the Lgbt community.

"This show is inspired by our story, because Peter is now living as an openly gay man, but Peter and I split up before he came out," she says. "That wasn't the reason why we split up, and I was the one who ended the marriage, and he didn't want it to end. It was only after that, and The Nanny ended, and he moved 3,000 miles away and went into »

'Happily Divorced' a tough sell, Drescher's life fodder for TV Land sitcom

15 June 2011 1:22 PM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

Nobody likes being lied to, and who would want to live a lie for appearances? The dilemma that once was Fran Drescher's real life is now sanitized, gussied up and presented as a farcical male-female version of The Odd Couple. TV Land sitcom "Happily Divorced" centers around Los Angeles florist Fran (Drescher) thrown back into the dating pool middle-aged, after finding out her real-estate agent husband of 18 years (John Michael Higgins) is gay. Happily DivorcedTags: Free Full Episodes,Classic Video Clips,TV Land Schedule Because of this economy, they must live together and make the best of it.

Review: Fran Drescher’s "Happily Divorced" Unhappily Mediocre

14 June 2011 9:29 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

John Michael Higgins and Fran Drescher in Happily Divorced

It’s pretty easy to see how Fran Drescher has become a gay icon: the woman with the face and body of a super-model has one of the most annoying voices of all time. But in best gay icon fashion, Drescher has chosen to “own” her voice, and her Queens roots, by exaggerating them in the campiest way possible.

Naturally, superstardom was inevitable.

Even better, the star of The Nanny has now created a sitcom based on her real-life experience with her ex-husband, Peter Marc Jacobson who revealed, after many years of marriage, that he is gay.

In the pilot for Happily Divorced, Drescher’s character, once again named Fran (as in The Nanny), learns almost immediately that her husband Peter is gay. They agree to divorce, but they can’t afford to sell their house at a loss and they »

Happily Divorced TV Review

13 June 2011 8:01 AM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

TV Land is kicking off another original series, and Happily Divorced fits in the same mold as its other successes. That is to say, it's a fairly screwy comedy that you'd expect to see coming out in the 80's. Fran Drescher is an L.A. florist who finds herself dating again after 18 years of marriage. Nothing that doesn't happen everyday, except that Fran isn't married anymore because her husband suddenly came out of the closet at her, and he still lives in the house.

The pilot solidifies itself pretty quickly, and establishes the idea that, at least for quite some time, the show will revolve around the curious husband/wife/new boyfriend triangle, with support coming from - Fran's parents Dori and Glen (Rita Moreno and Robert Walden), Fran's best friend Judi (Tichina Arnold), and her flower delivery employee (Valente Rodriguez).

By the way, Fran's husband Peter is played by John Michael Higgins, »

Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal takes his hit show to Russia in this hilarious new documentary, in theaters Friday.

Documentaries aren't supposed to be this funny, but director Philip Rosenthal's latest project Exporting Raymond packs more laughs per second than any other comedy released so far this year. The movie chronicles Phil's journey to translate his hit sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond for Russian audiences. Of course, hijinks ensue as Rosenthal finds himself hitting one cultural roadblock after another.

We recently caught up with Philip Rosenthal, who is also the star of Exporting Raymond, to chat with him about this unique experience. Here is our conversation.

Because this is a documentary, you have no idea how funny this is going to be at the end of the day. What gave you faith that chronicling this particular adventure would bore such magnificent fruit?

It's been years since The Nanny went off the air, and we've barely had our dose of Fran Drescher. Luckily, she decided to star in another sitcom premiering later this year. Joining her in creating the upcoming series, Happily Divorced, is her ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson, who also worked with the actress on the show that catapulted her to small screen fame.

On Happily Divorced, Fran Drescher stars as Fran (what else?), a Los Angeles florist who finds out that her husband of 18 years is gay. She's decided to re-enter the dating realm since then, but it's going to be tough juggling relationships when you're still living under one roof. »

The newly out Josh Flagg at the Bravo Media's 2011 Upfront Presentation in Los Angeles

The recipients for this year's Peabody Awards have been announced, and included is the Degrassi two-part episode focusing on transgender teen Adam. Hollyoaks won a Bubble Award for "Best Love Triangle" for the Ste/Brendan/Rae relationship. Little known Betty White will host the new NBC reality show Off Their Rockers, which "follows a band of seven senior citizens who make it their mission to play pranks on unsuspecting whippersnappers." Like most of you, I've been dreaming of seeing Ashton Kutcher and Justin Beiber starring together in a big screen comedy, and we may get our wish. Outsports takes a look at the new Abercrombie & Fitch campaign starring Ae fave Nick Youngquest, and how they've airbrushed him to make him appear ... generic. This will not do.

Elizabeth Taylor: Nancy McKeon recalls 'Can't Hurry Love' Black Pearls episode

23 March 2011 11:31 AM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

For Nancy McKeon, one of the facts of life is a hugely memorable experience with Elizabeth Taylor.

On the day of the screen legend's death (Wednesday, March 23), the familiar television actress behind the tomboyish character Jo on the classic NBC sitcom "The Facts of Life" is recalling the time she spent with two-time Oscar winner Taylor on an episode of "Can't Hurry Love," a 1995-96 CBS comedy that McKeon produced and starred in.

"There was a night where our show and others, including 'Murphy Brown' and 'The Nanny,' all had her in every episode," McKeon tells Zap2it. "The story threaded through all the shows, and it was about missing pearls or something.

"It was wonderful to have her on the set, but we also did some photo shoots, so I got to spend a little extra time with her and all these other fabulous ladies »

TV Land Greenlights Two More Sitcoms, Retired At 35 Returning

22 March 2011 12:29 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Living large on the fairly amazing success of Hot in Cleveland, TV Land is not only bringing back its newest venture, Retired at 35, but has also given the go ahead to two more, brand new sitcoms. Thus far, there seems little doubt that the people at TV Land know how to get audiences, and as things continue to play out with the two sitcoms they have, it seems that there are plenty of people looking for a return to the glory days of sitcom, in more ways than one.

Given a solid fanbase of viewers tuning in for "old school" comedy fare, the channel apparently figured it could put together some fresh meat with perhaps more in common with those bygone classics than today's efforts, and the results have been surprisingly positive.

The two newcomers are Happily Divorced with Fran Drescher, and The Exes, which focuses on three divorced men - Donald Faison, »
