Kaley is te zien in de nieuwe serie ‘Based on a True Story’ voor steamingsdienst Peacock.
A realtor, a former tennis star, and a plumber seize a unique opportunity to capitalize on America’s obsession with true crime.
With a revised book by Aaron Sorkin, the actor says that the upcoming Broadway production feels like a new musical, rather than a revival.
Four years ago, director Bartlett Sher asked Jordan Donica to star in a one-night-only gala performance of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot at Lincoln Center Theater. Ever since, he’s been digging into the character of the dashing Lancelot and will soon turn all his preparation to action in the upcoming revival of the musical at the Vivian Beaumont Theater.
Donica previously graced the Broadway stage as Raoul in The Phantom of the Opera and Freddy Eynsford-Hill in the 2018 production of My Fair Lady; on regional stages, he’s starred as Thomas Jefferson and Marquis de Lafayette in the Angelica tour of Hamilton. As the actor realized mid-conversation, “I’ve played a lot of French people.” It’s one of a few coincidences for Donica, who returns to the Vivian Beaumont for his second Lerner and Loewe musical there.
Kerry Washington, Oprah Winfrey and Sam Waterston are toplining Tyler Perry’s Six Triple Eight, the prolific director’s fourth film for Netflix.
Washington will also executive produce the film about the true story of the only all-black, all-female World War II battalion that proved key to the American war effort. The ensemble cast in the film, which has begun production, includes Ebony Obsidian, Milauna Jackson, Kylie Jefferson, Shanice Shantay, Sarah Jeffery, Pepi Sonuga and Jay Reeves.
Perry and his team also cast Jeanté Godlock, Moriah Brown, Baadja-Lyne Odums, Gregg Sulkin, Dean Norris and Susan Sarandon. Perry wrote the script for Six Triple Eight, which his based on an article by Kevin M. Hymel for WWII History magazine.
He will also produce the film alongside Nicole Avant, Keri Selig, Angi Bones, Carlota Espinosa and Tony Strickland, while Peter Guber will also executive produce.
Six Triple Eight recalls 855 women who joined the war effort with little knowledge of what exactly they would be doing, but were quickly given the mission to sort through and fix a three-year backlog of undelivered mail.
Their herculean task was done as the women faced discrimination, an unfamiliar land and a war-torn country as they sorted over 17 million pieces of mail, reconnecting American soldiers with their families and loved ones back home.
The story of the 6888th Postal Directory Battalion, until now kept out of history books, was restored on March 14th, 2022 when U.S. President Joe Biden signed a bill for the women to receive the Congressional Gold Medal, Congress’ highest honor.
Six Triple Eight will mark Perry’s latest film he directed for Netflix after A Fall From Grace, A Madea Homecoming, and A Jazzman’s Blues. Perry, WME and Johnson Shapiro recently inked a four-picture deal with Amazon Studios.
Washington is repped by CAA, Washington Square Arts, The Lede Company and Hansen Jacobsen.

Peacock heeft de officiële trailer uitgebracht voor Meet Cute, de aankomende romantische komedie met in de hoofdrollen Kaley Cuoco en Pete Davidson. De film is vanaf 21 september beschikbaar voor streaming.
De video toont Cuoco’s Sheila terwijl ze verliefd wordt op Davidson’s Gary. Om van Gary haar perfecte droomman te maken, gebruikt ze een tijdmachine om zijn problemen op te lossen terwijl ze voortdurend hun eerste magische date night herbeleeft.

De Amerikaanse TV zender Fox heeft besloten de nieuwe serie van Ser’Darius Blaine ‘The Big Leap’ geen tweede seizoen te geven door tegenvallende kijkcijfers en slechte reviews. Het gehele eerste seizoen van de serie dat uit 11 afleveringen bestaat is te bekijken via Disney+.
Fox has opted not to proceed with a second season of The Big Leap. The ballet drama-comedy, starring Scott Foley and Simone Recasner, had an 11-episode freshman run, which ended in December, with the network at the time deferring a decision on the show’s future until the spring.
It is one of two Fox freshman dramas on the bubble after soft limited runs, along with Our Kind Of People, which I hear looks promising for a second season due to a strong showing on Fox’s streamer Tubi.
With its music, stage performances and aspirational themes, The Big Leap was a favorite of Fox brass during the development process and arrived with a strong pre-launch buzz, drawing parallels to Fox’s breakout hit Glee.
But The Big Leap did not follow Glee‘s ratings trajectory. Linear ratings were soft, with the dramedy ranking as Fox’s lowest-rated series this season.
Still, Fox brass liked creatively The Big Leap, which scored a rare for a broadcast series 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The network met with The Big Leap team to hear their Season 2 pitch before making the final decision.
The Big Leap was a show-within-a-show that took viewers on a journey of self-acceptance, body-positivity and empowerment at any age. It was described as a modern tale about second chances, chasing your dreams and taking back what’s yours. The show revolved around a group of diverse, down-on-their-luck characters attempting to change their lives by participating in a potentially life-ruining reality dance show that builds to a live production of Swan Lake.
The Big Leap was produced by 20th Television and Fox Entertainment. Liz Heldens created the series inspired by the British reality series Big Ballet. She executive produced with the show’s director, Jason Winer, and Sue Naegle of Annapurna TV.
Één van Alyssa eerste rollen was die van Samantha in ‘Who’s The Boss’ en alle 8 seizoenen hiervan zullen vanaf 28 februari te zien zijn op Videoland! Er zijn al plannen voor reboot van de serie sinds 2020 die zich 30 jaar later afspeelt.
In 2020 maakten Tony Danza en Alyssa Milano ook bekend dat er gewerkt wordt aan een doorstart.
Videoland voegt deze maand alle seizoenen van Who’s the Boss? toe aan het aanbod. De sitcom werd destijds op de Nederlandse tv uitgezonden onder de titel De Baas in huis. Who’s the Boss? draait om weduwnaar en ex-honkballer Tony Micelli (Tony Danza), die aan het werk gaat als een hulpkracht in het huishouden van powervrouw Angela Bower (Judith Light), en daarvoor ook bij haar in huis komt wonen. Alyssa Milano geeft in de serie gestalte aan Tony’s dochter Samantha. Who’s the Boss? was van 1984 tot 1992 te zien op televisie. In 2020 lieten Milano (op Netflix te zien in Brazen) en Danza (op Netflix te zien in The Good Cop) tevens weten dat er gewerkt wordt aan nieuwe afleveringen, waarin de draad dertig jaar later weer zal worden opgepakt.
Who’s the Boss? S01-08 verschijnt 28 februari op Videoland.
Julian heeft besloten ‘FBI: Most Wanted’ te verlaten, zijn laatste aflevering zal zijn op 8 maart. In een verklaring laat hij weten al enkele maanden bezig te zijn om zijn vertrek te bespreken en dat hij ervoor kiest om andere creatieve werkaangelegenheden wil aanpakken. Inmiddels is bekend dat acteur Dylan McDermott de nieuwe lead-acteur zal worden in de serie.
This will come as a shocker for fans of the FBI franchise. Julian McMahon, star of FBI: Most Wanted, is exiting the CBS crime drama after almost three seasons. His final episode is slated to shoot next week and will air March 8. The show is expected to introduce a new character later this season who will fill the void left by the exit of McMahon’s Jess LaCroix, an “agent’s agent” and head of the team from the FBI’s Most Wanted Unit which is assigned the most extreme and egregious cases.
“Over the past few months, the producers of FBI: Most Wanted and I have had discussions about my departure from the show in favor of additional creative pursuits and the transition of my character Jess LaCroix,” McMahon said in a statement to Deadline. “These ongoing conversations have given us an opportunity to orchestrate a seamless and productive way for me to leave the show.”
McMahon also reflected on his time on FBI: Most Wanted and playing Jess LaCroix.
“I would like to express the gratitude and admiration I have had working with [executive producers] Dick Wolf and Peter Jankowski,” he said. “I’m extremely proud of the work we have done together and put the development of this show, and my character Jess, at the top of my professional experience list. I wish the show, and its cast & crew, the greatest success in the future. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to play Jess; he is a good man.”
It is unclear yet how McMahon’s character would be written off. LaCroix is now going through a major personal transition, with his daughter Tali, who has been his rock, leaving for a boarding school in Canada.
“We are saddened to see Julian leave,” Wolf said in a statement to Deadline. “His portrayal of agent Jess LaCroix has been a key factor in the success of FBI: Most Wanted. We will miss him and we wish him the best in his next chapter.”
McMahon made his debut as LaCroix in an April episode of the mothership FBI series, which served as a backdoor pilot for FBI: Most Wanted. The spinoff got off to a strong start in January 2020 and is now part of an FBI Tuesday lineup on CBS alongside the original FBI and newest addition FBI: International.
FBI: Most Wanted is executive produced by Wolf, Jankowski, David Hudgins, Todd Arnow and Arthur W. Forney. The series comes from Wolf Entertainment, Universal Television and CBS Studios.
Prior to FBI: Most Wanted, McMahon, known for his starring role in Nip/Tuck, had roles in Hulu’s Marvel series Runaways, BBC America’s Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, the miniseries adaptation of Childhood’s End as well as Charmed.
