Jessica Alba & Gabrielle Union's 'L.A.'s Finest' Picked Up by Charter

Jessica Alba and Gabrielle Union‘s upcoming series L.A.’s Finest, a spinoff of the Bad Boys movies, has officially been picked up by Charter Communications!

The show was originally produced as a pilot for NBC, but the network passed on it.

L.A.’s Finest will now get a 13-episode order and will premiere in 2019 on Spectrum’s platform.

The series “follows Syd Burnett (Union), last seen in Miami taking down a drug cartel, who has left her complicated past behind to become an LAPD detective. Paired with a new partner, Nancy McKenna (Alba), a working mom with an equally complex past, Syd is pushed to examine whether her unapologetic lifestyle might be masking a greater personal secret. These two women don’t agree on much, but they find common ground when it comes to taking on the most dangerous criminals in Los Angeles,” according to THR.

'Roseanne' Spinoff Officially Happening at ABC!

It’s official – a Roseanne spinoff is coming to ABC!

ABC announced on Thursday (June 21) that they will begin production on a 10-episode revival called The Conners – without Roseanne Barr.

“After a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before,” ABC said in a statement about the upcoming show. “This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging, and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.”

Original cast members John Goodman (Dan), Laurie Metcalf (Jackie), Sara Gilbert (Darlene), Lecy Goranson (Becky) and Michael Fishman (D.J.) have all signed on to be a part of the new spinoff.

Last month, ABC cancelled the Roseanne spinoff after Roseanne sent out a racist tweet about President Obama‘s adviser Valerie Jarrett.

The Conners is set to premiere this fall.

'The Gong Show' 2018 Host - Tommy Maitland Is Really Mike Myers!

The second season of The Gong Show reboot is premiering TONIGHT (June 21) on ABC and if you’re watching the show, you probably won’t recognize the man hosting the show.

Austin Powers actor Mike Myers plays a character named Tommy Maitland, who is the host of the show.

It was not confirmed until this past January that Mike was behind the stunt and he finally spoke out about it a couple months ago.

“I’m an old punk rocker, and there were a few things I would watch [growing up]: Saturday Night Live, Toronto Maple Leafs Hockey Club TV, and The Gong Show,” Mike said (via Vanity Fair). “There was something punk rock about the show . . . It was show business, but it had absolutely no ambition in it whatsoever—it was ambition-free. The show was kind of like performance art of a talent show. It’s not really taking itself seriously.”

“I just thought, if I’m doing this almost deconstruction of a talent show, I should be the ringmaster who is also deconstructed. It should be English in that way of keeping things moving, the super-gregarious [host],” he added.
