Hallmark Channel to Add Hanukkah Movies to Holiday Lineup Next Year

Holiday TV movies aren’t just for Christmas anymore: Hallmark Channel is planning to add a pair of Hanukkah-themed movies to its traditional holiday slate next year, according to a report from Forbes.

The two Hannukah movies are still in the early stages, a network source stresses, and details are sketchy, but one is tentatively titled Holiday Date and will feature “Hannukah elements… which is a lot of fun, as Hanukkah and Christmas overlap in 2019.” (Ah… so maybe a cross-denominational romance between a Christmas celebrant and a Hanukkah devotee? Mazel tov!)

Hallmark, of course, already has the market cornered on Christmas movies: The network,

Danny Leiner Dies: Director Of ‘Harold & Kumar’ And ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’ Was 57
Danny Leiner, the director behind comedies Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle and Dude, Where’s My Car?, died Thursday from lung cancer. His death at age 57 was confirmed via a Facebook post by Ross Putman, who produced several films with Leiner.

“If there’s one thing I can say about Danny the professional, it’s that he refused to let us settle for anything less than our best,” Putman wrote on Facebook. “He pushed us to do what he knew we were capable of. Danny the person was sardonic, sharp, and savvy, with a love for culture and comedy of all kinds. It hasn’t really sunk in yet, but the world has lost a good one.”

Actors John Cho and Kal Penn, the stars of the Harold & Kumar films, praised Leiner via Twitter as a “funny, thoughtful, encouraging person.”

Marvel Series About Female Superheroes From ‘Wonder Woman’s Allan Heinberg Set At ABC With Big Commitment
Exclusive: Wonder Woman writer Allan Heinberg is aiming to bring more female superheroes to the screen, this time in television.

ABC has given a production commitment to an untitled hourlong drama from Heinberg, Marvel Television and ABC Studios. Written by Heiinberg, it is about female characters with superpowers.

In typical Marvel fashion, further details are being kept close to the vest, but I hear the drama is based on lesser-known Marvel characters. There have been a number of fairly obscure female superhero team-ups that have appeared sporadically in Marvel comics over the years, including A-Force, Lady Liberators and Fearless Defenders.

Heinberg, who is under an overall deal at ABC Studios, is executive producing the potential series with Marvel Television’s Jeph Loeb.

Launching a new Marvel series has been a priority for ABC, with the Heinberg project emerging as a strong contender from the get-go, I hear.

Party of Five Is Officially Getting Rebooted on Freeform, But With a Huge Twist
Apparently, 2018 is the year we'll all become re-obsessed with our favorite '90s franchises.

If you're envisioning picking up where the original story left off - which was like Seventh Heaven meets The Boxcar Children - think again. The Hollywood Reporter reported back in January that Freeform had picked up the series, and now it's officially moving forward with a pilot order for the reboot, so we'll get at least one episode of the new series.

Reboot Fever Continues To Spread With Freeform Preparing A New Version Of 'Party Of Five'

Reboots, reboots, reboots! Everywhere we turn, it's reboots, though that's not always a bad thing. Sometimes it means we get to catch up with some old friends, like The Conners or Will & Grace, and other times we're getting old friends with new faces. Well now it's the return of Party of Five, courtesy of Freeform, and it's promising to be pretty different than the 1994-2000 version that ran on Fox. That show starred Scott Wolf, Matthew Fox, Neve Campbell, Lacey Chabert, and a number of twins as the youngest Salinger sibling (with Jennifer Love Hewitt playing Matthew's girlfriend). The concept of the original show is that the five Salingers are forced to fend for themselves in the aftermath of their parents dying in a car accident due to a drunk driver.
