Fast-rising Korean star Lee Min-ho will headline two Chinese movies from Hong Kong’s indie sales and production outfit Fame Universal Entertainment.
Lee stars in “The Bittersweet,” an action thriller now in post-production, and in upcoming “F Team,” a $10 million feature adaptation of a hit reality TV series. Both will be released in the second quarter of 2016.

Tyra Banks is back on daytime TV with new panel show “FABLife,” but the model-turned-television host promises the syndie talker will be unlike anything viewers have seen before on the small screen.

It is hard by yourself, it is lonely by yourself, it is tiring by yourself,” says Banks, who hosted six seasons of her own syndicated talk show “The Tyra Banks Show” from 2005 to 2010, adding that the “life-stylist” co-hosts are what make the show unique.
“I was not interested in coming back to daytime and doing like, ‘Tyra Show’ part two,” the host insists.

Congratulations to Jules O'Dwyer and her loveable border collie Matisse who won Britain's Got Talent last night (May 31). We must admit we came over a tad teary-eyed when Matisse's three-legged collie companion Skippy made his debut in their final act.

"It's fantastic and he brings a whole new energy to the programme and I am very much looking forward to working with him again tomorrow, »
