  • TMZ
[[tmz:video id="0_wx525mno"]] Jennifer Lawrence's self-appointed producer role on the 'Real Housewives' franchise is just that, according to the franchise's honcho Andy Cohen. We got Andy at Lax Wednesday where he called J. Law more of a 'Housewives' enthusiast than anything else. She told Jimmy Fallon on 'The Tonight Show,'  she gives Andy "a lot of advice" on the series. Andy says it's true, although it sounds like it's more than just friendly suggestions. In fact,

Producer Mark Gordon Slips the Bonds of Hollywood

Producer Mark Gordon Slips the Bonds of Hollywood
Producer Mark Gordon was only a few years removed from landing a best picture Oscar nomination for “Saving Private Ryan” when he decided to move into TV production in a significant way. His first series to make it on the air was “Lax,” a poorly received sudser for NBC that was canceled eight weeks after takeoff in the fall of 2004. The following year, the two shows that came from the Mark Gordon Co. enjoyed considerably more longevity. Both are still on the air, and both are tentpoles for their respective networks: ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” and CBS’ “Criminal Minds.”

Nearly a decade later, “Grey’s” and “Criminal Minds” would prove to be the financial engines that would allow Gordon to take another big leap. In January 2015 he set an innovative deal with British-Canadian distribution company Entertainment One to establish an independent studio that bears his name. The producer now has his own money on the line

Fox Orders Two Workplace Comedy Pilots From Will Ferrell, ‘New Girl’ and ‘Modern Family’ Producers

Fox has picked up two comedy pilots for “Type A” and “La —> Vegas,” Variety has learned.

Both are 30-minute, single-camera comedies that will be produced by 20th Century Fox Television.

Hailing from executive producer Will Ferrell, “La —> Vegas” is an ensemble workplace comedy about a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world, set on the Friday night flight from Lax to Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday, who all share the same goal: to come back a winner in the casino of life.

Lon Zimmet created the pilot and will serve as writer and executive producer, along with Ferrell, Adam McKay and Chris Henchy of Gary Sanchez Productions.

“Type A” is an office comedy about a group of consultants hand-picked to do the dirty work most professionals can’t handle: layoffs, downsizing, generally delivering horrible news. To everyone else, they’re the enemy, but to each other, they

Newswire: Mindy Kaling, Tonya Harding, and a meta take on Titanic lead the 2016 Black List

Mindy Kaling, Tonya Harding, Madonna, and Lax Mandis—not to be confused with Max Landis—all make appearances in one way or another on this year’s Black List, the annual collection of Hollywood film executives’ favorite unproduced screenplays. However, Kaling’s contribution, an untitled script about women in late-night comedy, is well on the way to becoming a reality with Emma Thompson attached. The same goes for Steven Rogers’ take on the Harding saga, I, Tonya, which Margot Robbie has boarded. Meanwhile, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman also pops up on the list with Life Itself, another multigenerational story bound to make you weep that will star Oscar Isaac.

The entries on the Black List are ranked by how many mentions they received, and the most by far went to Elyse Hollander’s Blond Ambition, which purports to tell the tale of Madonna in the ’80s before she

After Fox revisited “The X-Files,” TheWrap looks at other TV reboots that never should’ve happened. “Charlie’s Angels” “Charlie’s Angels” perfectly captured the goofiness of the ’70s, but it felt painfully out of date in 2011.

Stars Sing Broadway Tunes for Alzheimer’s at Sardi’s Benefit

Stars Sing Broadway Tunes for Alzheimer’s at Sardi’s Benefit
“We’re very happy to be here tonight,” said “The Big Bang Theory’s” Johnny Galecki, sandwiched on the Beverly Hilton stage between co-stars Kunal Nayyar, Simon Helberg, Jim Parsons, Melissa Rauch and Kaley Cuoco-Sweeting at Wednesday’s A Night at Sardi’s benefit, an annual ode to Broadway for the Alzheimer’s Association — where the actors were honored for their unwavering support last year. “And we’re happy that we’re not singing,” added Nayyar.

“I thought you liked singing,” Helberg bantered back, to which Nayyar responded, “I mean, yeah, I like singing, except it gives me months and months of anxiety.”

“I’m sad that we’re not singing,” Cuoco-Sweeting attested. “It’s the one chance we get to work in complete unison. I think we make beautiful music together, guys.” And they weren’t alone.

“My friend Jason Alexander’s opening the show,” noted Lea Thompson in

Failed TV pilots that paved the way for breakout hits

Had these pilots been given the green light, we might have been without Breaking Bad, 24, Hannibal, Community and more…

It’s not all grumble and moan round here when TV networks decline to pick up pilots. Sometimes, we’re even grateful.

Hindsight teaches that every so often, passing on a particular show is the best thing a channel could have done. Not ordering one pilot to series spurs its creators on to start another, and frees up its cast to join new projects.

Had the failures below all thrived, there’s a chance we could now be living in a world with no Breaking Bad, Hannibal, or even South Park. Had these pilots gone on to enjoy healthy, lengthy lives, then Jack Bauer, Oberyn Martell, Chandler Bing and more might all be unrecognisable today.

Here then, are the TV pilots we’re grateful weren’t taken to series because their

'Speed' 20th anniversary: Screenwriter Graham Yost looks back on 'the bus movie' that became a classic

'Speed' 20th anniversary: Screenwriter Graham Yost looks back on 'the bus movie' that became a classic
Screenwriter Graham Yost, now the showrunner of FX’s Justified, admits that the plot of Speed sounds ridiculous: A bomb on a bus will detonate if the bus travels below 50 mph. But when the movie was released June 10, 1994, a funny thing happened: It became a hit with moviegoers and critics alike. To quote EW’s grade-a review: “The film takes off from formula elements – it’s yet another variation on Die Hard – but it manipulates those elements so skillfully, with such a canny mixture of delirium and restraint, that I walked out of the picture with the rare sensation that

Channing Shows His Biceps - and Support For Jenna - During a Vancouver Set Visit

She has been keeping a busy filming schedule lately, and Jenna showed off her postbaby body in a tight lace tank top while on set last week. The family made the trek to Vancouver together with Channing cradling Everly in his arms as they flew out of Lax with Jenna earlier this month. He's reciprocating the support for his wife's work as she did for him earlier this year by relocating to London, where she gave birth to Everly, while Channing filmed Jupiter Ascending in the Spring.

This Is the End: 5 Celebs You Want for the Apocalypse
The end of the world as we know it feels more than fine if you party with James Franco, Seth Rogen, Jay Barachel, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride and a ton of other La hipsters. After Seth picks up his old pal Jay at Lax (with the paparazzi taking notice) they eventually end up at Franco's cool pad. Then the rapture hits. Yep, This Is the End is a Bible-inspired cautionary tale about living the Hollywood life. While the good folks at a convenience store get zapped up to heaven via a blue beam, all the guests at Franco's get left behind. If you thought this would be so dumb it's funny, like Franco versus McBride in a filth-off funny, you'd be right. Monsters, bad CGI and plenty of decapitations give the...
