Lee tells Entertainment Weekly: "This is the first show that I've been a part of that will blow our minds and reveal things that will explain almost all our questions.

Motley Crue Settle Manager Lawsuit

  • WENN
Latest: Motley Crue stars Vince Neil, Mick Mars and Nikki Sixx have reportedly settled a $20 million (GBP10 million) lawsuit against bandmate Tommy Lee's manager Carl Stubner.

The rockers filed the suit against Stubner in June accusing him of becoming too focused on Lee's career to the detriment of the band, citing breach of fiduciary duties and constructive fraud.

They claimed Stubner damaged Lee's reputation by signing him up for a series of reality shows including Rock Star: Supernova and Tommy Lee Goes to College, and then took the drummer away from rehearsals, recording and touring with Motley Crue by loading his schedule with other commitments.

The complaint also stated that their former manager had demanded an increase in his commission and threatened to make Lee unavailable for their 2006 Red, White and Crüe tour if they didn't comply.

A judge in California previously ordered the stars to amend the suit, which asked for more than $20 million (GBP10 million) for loss of earnings and profits, with more evidence of wrongdoing before the lawsuit could go further.

But according to Blabbermouth.net, the band have now arrived at a settlement agreement with Stubner. The two-page document states a request for dismissal will be filed by 31 May on the successful completion of the undisclosed terms arrived at by the warring parties.

A hearing scheduled for Friday has also been cancelled.

October grabs int'l formats for U.S. shows

Eddie October Prods., the independent production company behind NBC's Tommy Lee Goes to College and Comedy Central's Wanda Does It, has secured U.S. rights to a trio of international series formats: unscripted series How Long Will You Live? and game shows Top of the Tables and Resistance.

How Long is a hit in the U.K., where it averages above a 30 share on RTE One. The series features people whose out-of-control lifestyle choices -- for example, smoking, drinking, poor diet, stress or no exercise -- wreak havoc on their health and drastically reduce their lifespan. Doctors calculate their life expectancy and put them on an eight-week regimen to change and extend their lives, after which their life expectancy is recalculated and the new results are revealed in an emotional unveiling.

"I try to do comedy-based or positive reality shows, and this is a totally positive, emotional, life-changing show," Eddie October said.

The original series is produced in Ireland by Waddell Media.

Tables, which is in its fifth season on Belgium's Canvas Network, has been the highest-rated primetime series on the channel.

'Brother' scores big win Tuesday

'Brother' scores big win Tuesday
NEW YORK -- CBS continued its winning ways in Tuesday's primetime, with first-run Big Brother 6 topping a slew of reality series in the adults 18-49 demographic and a repeat of NCIS beating everything in total viewers. Preliminary data released Wednesday morning by Nielsen Media Research showed Big Brother 6 (9 million, 3.5 rating/9 share in the demo) outpaced every other Tuesday show in adults 18-49. Only a repeat of NBC's Law & Order: SVU (9.2 million, 3.2/9) came close an hour later. The night wasn't as fortunate for other reality shows, including NBC's Meet Mr. Mom (5.2 million, 2.0/6) at 8 p.m., NBC's Tommy Lee Goes To College (5.6 million, 2.7/7) at 9 p.m. and CBS's Rock Star: INXS (6.4 million, 3.0/8) at 10 p.m. Fox carried two hours of the 2005 Teen Choice Awards, averaging 4.8 million viewers and a 2.0/6 in the demo.

Anderson: 'Romance with Lee Is for Publicity'
Pamela Anderson has declared that she and her ex-husband Tommy Lee have been stepping out together to generate publicity for his upcoming reality show. After the divorcees were spotted holidaying in Hawaii recently, gossips speculated they were getting back together and had plans to wed again. But now former Baywatch beauty Anderson admits, "(I'm) just trying to get him a little press for his new show." Anderson admits she's yet to see an episode of Tommy Lee Goes to College - which debuts in America on August 16 - so she's not really endorsing it, but more "endorsing him, which has been a problem in the past". She adds, "He's family."
