The show’s original creator, Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, is attached to lead the reboot.
“Designing Women” ran for seven seasons on CBS, before concluding on May 24, 1993, sharing a night with “Murphy Brown.” You know, that other classic comedy about to return to the network.
The series centers around the fictional design firm Sugarbaker and Associates, a witty bully pulpit for caustic social and political humor. The founder of the company is Julia Sugarbaker (Dixie Carter), a sharp-tongued but elegant and surprisingly compassionate woman. Her younger sister, Suzanne (Delta Burke), is a former beauty queen who is long on charm but a bit slow on the uptake. Their associates are Mary Jo Shively (Annie Potts), a recent divorcee,
Later in the week, STX will release what they hope is a franchise-starter in Mile 22 featuring Mark Wahlberg re-teaming with director Peter Berg, while Sony's Studio 8 will release Alpha.
Beginning with Crazy Rich Asians, the adaptation of Kevin Kwan's novel of the same name has been making headlines for some time now. Originally published in 2013, the book has found a place on Amazon Charts for the past five weeks, currently ranking as the third most sold fiction title on the site, up
Dorman has played the lead on the Amazon Studios’ quirky genre-bending spy drama series Patriot whose second season was ordered 16 months ago but is yet to air. Because of the delay, Dorman was able to book a new series. I hear Amazon will likely not make a formal renewal decision on Patriot until Season 2 is released and should they opt to do another season, they will have to work around Dorman’s schedule on the Apple series.
Kinnamon, who played the lead, Takeshi Kovacs, on the first season of Netflix’s Altered Carbon, was recently tapped to star on the upcoming Amazon drama series Hanna in what is currently a one-year deal.
A veteran TV actor, Peck has been cast to play the iconic Starfleet officer Spock in season two of CBS All Access drama “Star Trek: Discovery.” Executive producer Alex Kurtzman confirmed at Comic-Con in July that Spock, one of the best-loved characters in the “Star Trek” franchise and in all of science fiction, would appear in season two of “Discovery.” Set to premiere in 2019, the new season, which takes place years before the original “Star Trek” television series, will feature an encounter between the USS Discovery and the USS Enterprise.
The child of a human mother and an alien father from the planet Vulcan, Spock serves aboard the Enterprise and is foster brother to Discovery’s second officer Michael Burnham.
Spock was created in the original “Star Trek” series by Nimoy, who also portrayed
The anthology drama will return with a “wholly original” story in its second year, the streamer’s senior vice president and head of content Craig Erwich tells Variety.
“It was a deeply original idea from two of the world’s greatest storytellers, and it was centered around something that’s been beloved and familiar to many of Stephen King’s legion of fans, which is the town of Castle Rock. So expectations were high to begin with, but it exceeded them,” he says. “The reaction from the variety of audiences has
Joe Wright is directing with Tracy Letts adapting the screenplay. Gary Oldman, Wyatt Russell, and Brian Tyree Henry are also on board to star. Scott Rudin and Eli Bush are producing “Woman in the Window.”
“Woman in the Window” debuted at No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list and remains the best-selling adult fiction title of the year. With more than one million copies sold in the U.S., the novel has topped the bestseller charts in multiple countries and is currently in print in 38 languages.
Mackie is best known for his roles in “The Hurt Locker” and as Falcon (aka Sam Wilson) in the Captain America films. He will wrap the Netflix remake of the French thriller “Point Blank” before shooting “Woman in the Window,
Leading the way is the international premiere of the Joel Edgerton film “Boy Erased.” That film, which stars Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, and Lucas Hedges, is getting plenty of awards-season buzz.
Guillermo del Toro is producing the project with David Goyer and Miles Dale, who produced del Toro’s Oscar-winning “The Shape of Water.”
“Antlers” follows a teacher (Keri Russell) who takes an interest in a mysterious and withdrawn student. As they become closer, she discovers that the boy is harboring a secret that could have deadly consequences.
It is unknown who Plemons will be playing in the film.
Nick Antosca and Henry Chaisson wrote the script, which is based on Antosca’s short story “The Quiet Boy.” Cooper did additional revisions. Kevin Turen and Antosca are exec producing.
Plemons and Cooper have a solid history, going back to Cooper’s mob movie “Black Mass” as well as the recently released western “Hostiles,” which also starred Christian Bale.
That film is Warner Bros.’ “Crazy Rich Asians,” the first film to feature an all-Asian cast since “The Joy Luck Club” was released in 1993. In an attempt to help build word of mouth heading into the weekend, WB is releasing the film on Wednesday, with projections expecting a $26 million opening over five days.
But analysts who spoke with TheWrap say that the film has a big upside, and that an opening of at least $30 million should be expected. Even though it doesn’t have the superhero pedigree of “Wonder Woman” or “Black Panther,” like those films, “Crazy Rich Asians” is fulfilling a long-standing demand for a section of the moviegoing populace to see themselves on-screen.
Jost, who will host next month’s Emmy awards with his “Weekend Update” co-anchor Michael Che, received some push-back Tuesday after telling The Los Angeles Times about his desire to see “good, fun” things win awards rather than only “good, artsy” things.
“Remember when movies like ‘Gladiator’ won best picture? Why can’t good, fun things win and not just good artsy things? They’re both good and the fun ones are sometimes a lot harder to make,” Jost said in an interview with the paper about hosting the Emmys.

Moh was named as a member of the cast last month, but his role was not officially released. Individuals with knowledge of the project told to TheWrap this week that Moh will play Lee. That’s fitting, because Moh has honored Lee in YouTube videos (see below) and a tweet last month on the 45th anniversary of Lee’s death.
“It’s been 45 years since this man passed,” tweeted Moh, who is best known for playing Triton on Marvel’s “The Inhumans.” “#brucelee has inspired me in so many ways… Martial arts, acting, his philosophies on life. But look at the loving way he looked at his children.
Starting in 2020, the Academy is planning to move Oscar Sunday out of its late February/early March airdate to the weekend following the Super Bowl on Feb. 9. The Oscar nominations announcement and voting periods will also be moved up into late December and early January, meaning that the period between nomination announcements and the night Best Picture is awarded will now take place in a movie theater landscape that will likely be dominated by popular holiday releases.
And that spells trouble for indie titles looking for an Oscar-buzz boost at the box office.

“Gilmore Girls” alum — and on-screen Life and Death Brigade member — Tanc Sade is reuniting with his “Gilmore Girls” co-star Matt Czuchry on the latter’s Fox medical drama, a spokesperson for the network tells TheWrap.
Sade played Finn, Logan’s (Czuchry) Yale buddy, on the Amy Sherman-Palladino-created CW series and reprised his role for the 2016 revival. When he stops by Czuchry’s new series for Season 2, he’ll play Josh Robinson, a professional extreme adventure guide whose story takes a highly unexpected turn when he is treated by Condrad at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital.

According to papers filed Tuesday and obtained by TheWrap, Mack is seeking the relaxed conditions because she “is interested in contributing to society.”
Mack’s legal representation is asking for the home detention component of her bail conditions to be amended so that she can leave her residence without seeking the court’s permission for the purposes of “stationary and verifiable employment,” as well as to attend religious services once a week and for schooling.

In 2010, Manigault Newman starred in the reality dating show. And if you didn’t know it was produced by Trump, you weren’t reading the title: “Donald Trump Presents: The Ultimate Merger.” The show was something of a cross between “The Bachelorette” and “The Apprentice,” with Trump himself picking the 12 suitors, who stayed at (guess where) a Trump International Hotel in Las Vegas.
“The Ultimate Merger” also featured a spiritual adviser, Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant, who was pastor of the Empowerment Temple A.M.E. Church in Baltimore.
