‘Girls’ Writer Murray Miller Won’t Be Charged in Rape Accusation

‘Girls’ Writer Murray Miller Won’t Be Charged in Rape Accusation
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office declined to file charges Friday against Murray Miller, a writer for HBO’s “Girls” who actress Aurora Perrineau accused of sexually assaulting her in 2011, when she was underage.

The D.A.’s office said it investigated the possibility of charging Murray with one of two crimes: rape, specifically with an unconscious victim, and statutory rape.

Prosecutors said the three-year statute of limitations has expired on statutory rape, and declined to prosecute on the other rape charge, citing “inconsistencies and the delay in reporting.”

“[T]here are inconsistencies which cannot be overcome,” the Da’s office said in a declination of charge document.

Los Angeles D.A. Declines To Charge ‘Girls’ Writer/Ep Murray Miller After Sexual Assault Claim
The Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office’s has declined to move forward on criminal charges against Murray Miller, a former writer/executive producer on HBO’s Lena Dunham series Girls. He was accused last fall by actress Aurora Perrineau of sexually assaulting her in 2012 when she was 17.

Miller’s case was one of four rejected Friday by the Los Angeles D.A. Office’s task force, formed in the wake of the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement and the influx of allegations in Hollywood. Others dismissals today involved rocker Marilyn Manson and rapper Asap Bari.

Perrineau filed a sexual assault complaint against Miller in November with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. The case was turned over to the Los Angeles Police Department for investigation. Miller denied the allegations at the time, calling the claims “outrageous.”

  • Gold Derby
“I’m not fretting too much over this category,” Gold Derby managing editor Chris Beachum admits about the Emmy for Best Comedy Actress. “There are some where I don’t know what to do and I keep changing my mind every day. But this one, it’s Rachel Brosnahan all the way. She just fits every single criteria you would be looking for, so I am just not going to think too much about it.” Beachum recently teamed up with senior editor Rob Licuria, the original Gold Derby duo, in a series of slugfests this week about all six lead acting races at the Emmys. Watch their lively discussion about Best Comedy Actress above.

Experimental Nexus Blitz Mode Coming to ‘League of Legends’ Soon

  • Variety
Riot Games will start alpha playtesting a new experimental “League of Legends” mode called Nexus Blitz, it revealed in a forum post on Tuesday.

Nexus Blitz is designed for people looking for some low-pressure fun, the developer said. Matches last about 15 minutes and consist of two junglers in close proximity to three laners. Map-wide events kick off every few minutes and grant powerful rewards to the team that wins them. They could include King of the Hill competitions, payload escorts, or the closing death circle of a battle royale game.

“The compact map makes for constant action, and a roulette of new, unexpected events amplifies the frenzy even more,” Riot said.

Nexus Blitz’s other major mechanic rewards players who go on killing hotstreaks. While they’re “on fire,” they gain adaptive damage and shorter cooldowns, but also take more damage. Plus, those players are worth a ton of gold to shut down.

BoJack hails from Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co., which retained the series’ off-network rights for a domestic syndication sale. Those opportunities quickly disappeared,

‘Magnum P.I.’: Amy Hill To Recur In CBS Reboot
Amy Hill has signed on for a recurring role with a series regular option in Magnum P.I, CBS’ reboot of the classic 1980s show, from Peter Lenkov, Davis Entertainment, CBS TV Studios and Universal TV Studios,

Co-written by Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim, the reboot follows Thomas Magnum (Jay Hernandez), a decorated ex-Navy Seal who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. With help from fellow vets Theodore “Tc” Calvin and Orville “Rick” Wright, as well as that of disavowed former Mi:6 agent Juliet Higgins, Magnum takes on the cases no one else will, helping those who have no one else to turn to.

Hill will play the charming and irreverent Kumu, the cultural curator and de facto “house mom” of Robin’s Nest. Whip-smart, she makes sure neither Magnum nor Higgins get away with anything on “her” property. But if they’re ever in need, Kumu is the first person to offer help from herself and her dozens of cousins, “tutus” (aunties) and neighbors all over Oahu. She’s the funny and tart voice of the islands.

Hill currently recurs on Crazy Ex Girlfriend, UnReal, Preacher and Mom. She’s also a regular on Just Add Magic, which is now streaming on Amazon Prime. As a voice actor, she’s been heard as recurring or regular voice characters on numerous animated series or films including American Dad, Lilo and Stitch (film and series), King of the Hill and HBO’s Happily Ever After.

SpongeBob SquarePants 3 Gets New 2020 Release Date

SpongeBob SquarePants 3 Gets New 2020 Release Date
The third Spongebob Squarepants movie has been given a new release date by Paramount. The project was first announced in 2017 and has been delayed for a later than initially expected release. It looks like the studio has worked things out and has now dated SpongeBob Squarepants 3 for July 17, 2020. That should position the third big screen outing for the popular Nickelodeon cartoon character as one of the big family movies arriving that summer.

Paramount had previously dated what is officially titled, quite simply, The Spongebob Movie, for July 31, 2020, after delaying it a year from August 31, 2019. This new date puts it out a full two weeks earlier. There are no specific titles currently slated for the previous date, but Marvel Studios does have an untitled movie slated for release on July 31, 2020. Regardless of what that title ends up being, it's a date that other studios are likely to back off of, considering

Comedy Central Acquires ‘King Of The Hill’ & ‘The Cleveland Show’
Comedy Central is adding animated series King of the Hill and The Cleveland Show to its lineup. The network has acquired from Twentieth Television all 13 seasons of King of the Hill for premiere on Monday, July 23 and all four seasons of Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show for premiere in the fall.

It was the off-network run of Family Guy on Adult Swim after its cancellation by Fox that triggered its revival by the broadcast network. We will see if Comedy Central’s airings could have a similar impact on spinoff The Cleveland Show, which has the rare distinction of never been officially canceled by Fox.

On Comedy Central, the two library series join another 20th TV-produced animated series that aired on Fox, Futurama, which also airs on Syfy.

Pamela Adlon on Keeping Family Items Close to Inspire ‘Better Things’
The first thing you notice about Pamela Adlon is her laugh. Deep, throaty and decibel-shattering, her cackle echoes throughout the cottage in Beverly Hills that serves as her personal writing space for her FX comedy “Better Things,” which she not only produces, but also stars in and directs. The show has an official writers’ room deep in Hollywood, but this cozy, tchotchke-filled nook serves as her “sanctuary,” she says. It also serves as a refuge from her home, which is crowded with not just her own three daughters, but their coterie of friends. “I’ve aged out of my house,” she complains, only half-joking. “My house gets so chaotic!”

Bobby or Bust

One of Adlon’s most famous roles takes advantage of her trademark croak: She gave voice to Bobby on “King of the Hill” for 13 years, and won an Emmy for the effort. So a small Bobby statue now lives on her mantle,
