Remember Legally Blonde: The Musical casting show on MTV? Or how about The Glee Project on Oxygen? Both of these were such huge hits that Tony Award winner Andrew Lloyd Webber is currently in talks for a new reality television show that will scout talent for one of his esteemed musical productions. He has so many great stage spectacles to choose from (Evita, Cats, The Phantom Of The Opera, Sunset Boulevard and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, to only name a few), so which script and score will be the final prize of the upcoming televised talent contest?
If you watched the last episodes of The Voice this past June, you saw a teaser of Katharine McPhee singing Christina Aguilera’s hit song “Beautiful.” You probably wondered why for a minute and then forgot about it, because you never really saw or heard much about it again afterwards.
That placement was actually an incredibly early advertisement for Smash, the musical drama that is said to be NBC’s answer to Glee on FOX. Yet instead of following misfit teens in an after school club, Smash is set in New York City, and it’s studded with a talented cast — which, as of yesterday, now includes Uma Thurman.
Somehow, the Kardashians are famous. No one really remembers exactly how it happened or why it continues to happen, but it’s a constant in Hollywood and beyond. And like so many others, Daniel Craig has had enough of it.
The actor recently vented his frustrations in an interview for GQ though a quote so honest that Kris Jenner’s ears are ringing. Since she’s a Kardashian, she too has a few words of retaliation on behalf of her entire family.
TLC has always been the go-to channel for interesting reality shows–where else can you sit through marathons of couples with too many children, women recruiting their children to go dumpster diving for coupons, or people with strange addictions (apparently, laundry detergent is quite appetizing)?
On December 18th, TLC is premiering a new show that peeks into the niche world of sci-fi speed dating, complete with costumes, Chewbacca and all things Comic-Con.
Ryan Seacrest works a lot. He hosts a morning radio show on KIIS FM, films segments of E! News in the afternoon and picks up the microphone twice a week at tapings of American Idol. He produces reality shows (yes, he’s the one responsible for every Kardashian spinoff), serves as the managing editor of E! News and is more than just the face of The Ryan Seacrest Foundation. The man is pretty busy as it is, and he keeps busy with all things Hollywood.
So why is he meeting with executives of Today? And what is Matt Lauer’s opinion on all of this? Surprisingly, it’s all in alignment with Lauer’s own agenda, but such talk may be putting many of Seacrest’s projects in jeopardy.
The NBC vocal competition was huge hit earlier this year that a British version of the brand new show is scheduled to air on BBC1 in spring. Just confirmed to sit in a blinded judge’s seat alongside Jessie J is the Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am.
