Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Megan Hilty (Smash) have earned membership in TV Land’s The First Wives Club remake.

Alyson Hannigan & Megan Hilty to Star in TV Land’s ‘First Wives Club’ Remake

3 June 2016 5:41 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Alyson Hannigan and Megan Hilty have been cast in TV Land’s “First Wives Club” pilot, Variety has confirmed.

The duo will star in the television reboot of the 1996 film, which will take place in modern-day San Francisco. Like the original rom-com, the story revolves around three women who were friends and classmates in the ’90s and reconnect after their close friend from college dies in a freak accident.

Hannigan and Hilty will play two of the three leads. The original movie starred Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.

The casting is a huge “get” for TV Land, as “First Wives Club” will mark Hannigan’s first major role after “How I Met Your Mother” and Hilty’s since “Smash,” which turned her into a household name. While the project has only been greenlit for a pilot, with the two ladies now attached, the series should be appealing for a full series order. »

"Mary Poppins Returns" and "In the Heights"

1 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Broadway's Hamilton fever has caught up with mainstream Hollywood. The Tony winning writer/director/actor Lin-Manuel Miranda, whose Hamilton is the easy frontrunner going into the Tony Awards a week from Sunday (I'm finally seeing it, too, wheeee, albeit a few days after the Tony Awards - thanks Rory!) has two big movies brewing now.... and that's before anyone gets around to trying to get Hamilton on the big screen. He exits Hamilton on July 9th so he'll have plenty of time to chase these Hollywood opportunities.  

Mary Poppins Returns

We've heard rumors of a Mary Poppins remake for ages but it looks like we're getting a sequel instead with the delightfully versatile Emily Blunt as the magical nanny (the iconic Julie Andrews part) and Lin-Manuel Miranda as a new character but I'd still expect a jolly-holiday sort of partner in magical highjinks for Mary. He's described as a "lamplighter »

The 'Mary Poppins' sequel has a shot at being special

31 May 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Now that he has utterly and completely conquered Broadway, it’ll be interesting to see how Hollywood handles Lin-Manuel Miranda. It’s clear that he’s already been embraced by the creative community. He and Jj Abrams had a lot of fun creating that cantina song for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and had apparently even more fun performing the song live for crowds waiting for the daily Hamilton ticket lottery. He’s working on songs for Moana, the Polynesian-themed Disney musical that will feature Dwayne Johnson singing. His long-rumored connection to the Mary Poppins sequel has finally been verified by an official press release from Disney. While I consider Mary Poppins one of the crown jewels of Disney’s entire filmography, I am not instantly opposed to a sequel. It’s clear now that they are not remaking the original, and considering how much other material P.L. Travers wrote »

Lifetime Scrapped Plans for Morning-News Movie That Put Spotlight on ‘Today’

10 May 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Lifetime movie that was supposed to cast a jaundiced eye on the war between the nation’s most-watched morning-news programs will not see the light of day at the cable network.

Lifetime generated headlines when it announced its intention to develop a TV movie based on CNN media reporter Brian Stelter’s 2013 tome “Top of the Morning.” The book took readers behind the scenes of NBC’s “Today” show in 2012 as it suffered amid ratings declines and the ouster of then co-anchor Ann Curry, all while it grappled with losing the morning TV crown to ABC’s “Good Morning America.” Some pundits even offered their takes on which actors should play each of the morning personalities involved in the a.m. drama.

But Lifetime, part of A+E Networks, a joint venture of Disney and Hearst, let its option on the project lapse several months ago, according to three people familiar with the situation. »

Tina Fey, Megan Hilty Fete NBC’s Bob Greenblatt at Actors Fund Gala

25 April 2016 9:40 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tina Fey took time out from the opening of her husband’s latest Broadway effort on Monday night to shower praise on NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt as he received the Actors Fund’s Medal of Honor.

Fey noted that during her 19 years of working at NBC she’s seen nine heads of NBC come and go. Greenblatt, who has run the entertainment side of the network since 2011, stands out as uniquely qualified for the job, drawing an analogy to characters from her NBC comedy “30 Rock.”

“He comes from a creative background, not a corporate one,” Fey told the crowd at the Marriott Marquis. “Bob Greenblatt is much more Kenneth the Page than Jack Donaghy.”

Fey hustled across the street in Times Square to present Greenblatt’s kudo shortly after the opening of Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s one-man effort “Fully Committed,” which features original music by her husband, Jeff Richmond. »

Coulson’s latest mission is a real drag.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. star Clark Gregg slips into his finest stewardess duds for an unforgettable — and, honestly, really impressive — performance of Britney Spears’ “Toxic” on Thursday’s episode of Lip Sync Battle (Spike TV, 10/9c).

Can 'Vinyl' be fixed after such a disappointing first season?

17 April 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The year's still young, but it's safe to call HBO's Vinyl one of its biggest TV disappointments. Whether you're looking at ratings (where viewership for the initial Sunday night airing keeps coming in at well under 1 million), reviews (my lukewarm initial appraisal was kinder than many), or buzz, the show hasn't remotely been what either viewers or HBO executives might have hoped for from the team-up of Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and Terence Winter, who was fired as showrunner after this season wrapped. (He'll be replaced by The informant! and Bourne Ultimatum writer Scott Z. Burns, in his first real TV job.) For HBO to take such an aggressive move with Winter, who created Boardwalk Empire and was David Chase's top lieutenant for virtually all of The Sopranos, speaks both to a tenuous moment for the pay cable giant — which hasn't been able to turn a drama other than »
