‘Descendants 2’: How This Long-Running Female Writing Team Came Up With One of Disney’s Most Important Franchises

21 July 2017 3:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon first teamed up 32 years ago, the door had just started to crack open for female film writers.

“We came at the right time, it was right when women writers were coming into vogue,” McGibbon said. “It was the time of ‘Thelma and Louise’ and there was two of us — a blonde and a brunette and it all fell into place.”

Parriott and McGibbon’s latest project, “Descendants 2,” premieres Friday night on Disney Channel, as well as ABC, Freeform, Disney Xd and Lifetime. It’s now a key franchise for Disney, and the latest career twist for Parriott and McGibbon, who now boast one of the longest-running writing partnerships in all of Hollywood.

All of this is to say that there was once a time when the romantic-comedy genre was a slam dunk when it came to turning a profit at the box office.

The last several years have made one thing very clear: Indie film is the savior of the rom-com. Click through the gallery for 11 great films that prove why.

Julia Roberts in Talks to Star in Sam Esmail’s TV Series ‘Homecoming’

5 June 2017 10:06 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Julia Roberts is in talks to team up with “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail on his next TV series, “Homecoming,” Variety has confirmed.

“Homecoming” is an adaptation of the fictional podcast of the same name from Gimlet Media, which launched this past November. The podcast is about staffers at a secret government agency where some are desperate to rejoin civilian life. Written by Esmail, the political thriller centers on a caseworker at a secret government facility, her supervisor and a soldier. Roberts is in talks to play the government caseworker.

When “Homecoming” was first announced in early development, Variety reported that the project would be a star vehicle before it hit the marketplace. Should Roberts sign on, the series will surely become a hot package with much interest across networks.

The TV project hails from Anonymous Content and Universal Cable Productions where Esmail is under an overall deal. Along with Esmail, executive »

Lakeshore Entertainment Closes Deal for $250 Million Credit Facility

8 May 2017 12:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lakeshore Entertainment Group — which has financed the “Underworld” franchise — has closed its fourth iteration of its revolving credit facility with partners recommitting to over $250 million for another five years.

JPMorgan again led the deal as sole bookrunner and administrative agent, alongside Bank of America and all existing capital partners, which provides a further five-year agreement. According to the company, the transaction never made it to the open capital markets, because Lakeshore’s current group of 10 banks all recommitted early to the new facility, most in amounts exceeding their prior commitments.

Lakeshore was launched in 1994 by CEO Tom Rosenberg. Producer Gary Lucchesi has been president since 1998. Its notable releases include “Runaway Bride,” “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Lincoln Lawyer,” “The Age of Adaline” and “The Boy.”

The company has one television show airing in January (Paramount TV’s “Heathers”) and plans to have another in production by the end of 2017.

21 March 2017 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ted Field’s Radar Pictures is developing a movie about the Chicago Cubs winning the 2016 World Series — their first in 108 years — with the team and its recently-retired catcher David Ross.

Radar has acquired movie rights to Ross’ upcoming memoir “Teammate: My Journey in Baseball and a World Series for the Ages.” The book is co-written by sportswriter Don Yaeger and will be published May 9 by Hachette Books.

The book centers on the final game of the series against the Cleveland Indians, during which the 40-year-old Ross became the oldest player to homer in a Game 7 of the World Series.

The Cubs won the game 8-7 in 10 innings. Ross had announced that he would retire at the end of the season following a 15-year career in Major League Baseball.

Radar has titled the movie project “Teammate: My Life in Baseball. »

Madam Secretary: Love Meets Politics and Heartbreak for Jay and Daisy

5 March 2017 11:18 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Everyone loves a love story. It doesn’t matter what it is as long as there is a fairy tale happy ending. Though in this week’s episode of Madam Secretary, there’s no such thing as a fairy tale ending. The whole modern-day Romeo and Juliet thing is an interesting take on political marriages. Usually, a union like this doesn’t last for very long. Or so I’ve heard. At least Juan-Luis and Soledad are smitten with each other instead of having to learn how to love. That is until the latter got all Runaway Bride on her husband-to-be. I completely understand why she

Rita Wilson, Archie Panjabi Cast in Fox Pilot About Sexual Assault on College Campuses

28 February 2017 11:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Rita Wilson and Archie Panjabi have been cast in Fox’s drama pilot about sexual scandals on college campuses, Variety has learned.

The untitled university project — formerly titled “Controversy” — centers around the Junior Counsel of a prestigious Illinois school that must deal with an out-of-control scandal when a young co-ed accuses several star football players of sexual assault. From the football coaches and boosters who wield outsize influence, to a university administration under siege, the series explores the type of high-profile controversy all-too familiar on today’s college campuses, as well as the corrosive, dangerous nature of institutional power.

Wilson will play Constance Hawthorne, the dignified but fierce head of Uci Board of Trustees. Panjabi will play Jourdan Price, the crisis management consultant brought in to help with the scandal.

Previously announced, Austin Stowell will also star in the Fox pilot as the central character, Matt Kincaid, the Junior Counsel of the university.
