Relativity Raises $250 Million From San Francisco Investment Firm

6 April 2015 6:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Relativity Media has secured a round of fresh financing from VII Peaks Capital ahead of its long-planned Ipo, sources confirm.

Ryan Kavanaugh’s film and television studio is getting an injection of $250 million in funding from the San Francisco investment management firm, which isn’t a usual source of finance for Hollywood.

The deal follows months in which Relativity made the rounds with hedge funds and investors amid what sources described as a cash crunch at the company. A source close to the company disputed that characterization and said the equity investment was sought as a means of strengthening its balance sheet in preparation for an Ipo sometime in 2016.

“We have executed a deal which will bring significant equity into Relativity ahead of a planned Ipo. Relativity is in a better position as a diversified global media company than ever, and it remains under Ryan’s leadership,” said VII Peaks »

1 April 2015 2:30 PM, PDT | Us Weekly | See recent Us Weekly news »

It feels so good! After five episodes apart, Max Joseph and Nev Schulman are finally reuniting on Catfish's April 1 episode. (Cue the slow-mo run-and-hug!) But before we watch the Internet detectives meet again in a tearful embrace (just projecting, but that's 100 percent what we want to see), let's examine how each of the five guest hosts fared in Joseph's place. Joseph took a Catfish hiatus during the first half of season 5 to direct his feature film debut, We Are Your Friends (starring Zac Efron!). [...] »

While most of Teen Wolf‘s upcoming fifth season remains a mystery, one thing is clear: Scott’s pack will be down one (major) member when the supernatural MTV drama returns.

Tyler Hoechlin decided he wanted more time to pursue movies,” executive producer Jeff Davis tells BuzzFeed. “We talked and creatively agreed that maybe this was a good season to refocus on the teens of Teen Wolf, and while he won’t be a series regular anymore, I can say that you probably won’t have »

With only two episodes left in Eye Candy‘s freshman season, time is running out for leading lady Lindy to expose the Flirtual killer and track down her sister — but first, a little boy drama.

Catfish star Nev Schulman: 'We almost called it The Facebook Family'

7 March 2015 1:00 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Catfish has grown to become one of MTV's most popular shows since Nev Schulman and Max Joseph launched it back in 2012.

Nev and Max have returned for a fourth collection of heartbreaks and deceptions caused by so-called 'catfishes' on the internet, and the first episode has proven that the results are as shocking as ever.

Fans may be disappointed that Max was busy filming his new DJ film with Zac Efron for a large chunk of this season, but Nev is instead being joined by five celebrity co-hosts including MTV's Charlemagne and model Cassidy Wolf.

Digital Spy caught up with Nev to find out what to expect from the new season and what challenges he was met with this time around.

A fourth season brings a fresh challenge

"The challenge to find new and different stories becomes greater every season, obviously. For me, personally, I'm challenged by the show because »

Interview: 'The Jinx' director Andrew Jarecki on the origins of his HBO series

13 February 2015 9:00 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hopefully you checked out last Sunday's premiere of HBO's "The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst," which I gave an A- review and said had the potential to be the year's best new show. Director Andrew Jarecki's second attempt at unraveling the mysteries surrounding Robert Durst, including the three murders he's been linked to over 30 years, began as a slow-burn building to the revelation that, after seeing Jarecki's "All Good Things," Durst agreed to sit down with the filmmaker.  This Sunday's episode relies heavily on Durst's recounting of his own biographical details, but also gradually shifts that focus to the "character" of Durst's wife Kathleen McCormack, missing since 1982. Even in her absence, Kathleen McCormack looms almost as large as Durst and, in an important role, Jarecki himself. I got on the phone earlier this week with "Capturing the Friedmans" director Jarecki to talk about the structure and narrative direction of "The Jinx, »
