Will Smith may actually be working on a TV project that won't involve placing his kids in it, and another probably-painful series about a strong-willed career woman from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes, in today's news...
Sci-Fi Channel recently announced that they were developing a TV movie with Will Smith's production company called Unfinished Business, in which a cop with a brain injury starts hearing the voices of the recently deceased, who ask him to finish their, uh, "business." The movie will be a back-door pilot, meaning that Sci-Fi has the option to turn it into a regular television series, but we can't think of a more boring, oft-used plot device. Haven't these people watched Ghost Whisperer? Medium? Raines? (Okay, that last one is unfair -- nobody watched it.) Anyway, we'd much rather see a series based on one of Will Smith's numerous movies, most of which were blockbusters at the box office, and would likely deliver smash ratings on TV. Here's a few that we think would make for interesting television.
It was a lackluster year for musicals and a great year for plays, but, alas, the gay prom must go on. Last night's televised Tonys event (yes, they still televise the Tonys) was star-studded, upset-filled and full of enormous and pretentious egos. Host Sean Hayes was funny for the most part, and overall it was a fabulous way to spend a Sunday evening. But there were lowlights, of course. Read on as I list the best and worst parts of the show.
It's 4/20, booooy! While stoners at my alma mater celebrate what used to be known as Zonker Harris Day -- until they changed the name under threat of losing their funding, because apparently the potheads now need the administration to underwrite them -- I'm rolling up a big fattie of TV news for everyone to meditate on. It's not consciousness-expanding, but it will make you paranoid.
