In addition to the Rocky Horror Picture Show, FOX also has another musical in the works. The network gets biblical with The Passion Live, airing on Palm Sunday.

The two-hour musical event taking place live in New Orleans will be hosted and narrated by Tyler Perry. It’s based on a format originally created in the Netherlands. The yearly event has become a pop culture phenomenon in that country.

Seal has joined the star-studded cast. He’ll play Pontius Pilate. Read below to find out who else is starring in the highly-anticipated project.

NBC Drops First Promo For Friends Reunion

In: Donovan, TV Shows
friends-reunion-preview

The stars of television’s greatest comedies assembled to honor James Burrows for recently directing his 1000th episode. The gang from Cheers, the Taxi crew, and members from Will & Grace and Frasier were on hand to celebrate the veteran director. NBC just dropped the first promo for the all-star tribute.

Of all the reunions, it’s the Friends one that has most people excited. Only 5/6 of the Central Perk crew were on hand. Matthew Perry was away during the taping but did appear via taped message. To be perfectly honest, he was my least favorite ‘Friend,’ so I’m all good. They should’ve brought on Gunther instead 😉

The network tapped Andy Cohen to moderate the entire thing. Perfect choice if you ask me. My silver fox crush loves all things pop culture. A Tribute To James Burrows airs on NBC on February 21. Check out the teaser for the must-see event below.

Crossover episodes aren’t anything new. However, ones that involve shows on two different networks are rare. The fact both Supergirl and The Flash are both produced by Greg Berlanti definitely assisted in this coming to fruition. Also, since CBS and The CW have the same parent company also helped.

“We are so incredibly excited to announce something that we have dreamed of happening since we starting making Supergirl — The Flash and Supergirl are teaming up!,” stated series exec producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg. “Thanks to the fans and journalists who have kept asking for this to happen. It is our pleasure and hope to create an episode worthy of everyone’s enthusiasm and support.”

Read below to find out when this episode will air.

christina-milian-rocky-horror-picture-show

With such universal praise for Grease Live!, FOX must be feeling a little pressure for their next big musical production. Unlike Grease though, the Rocky Horror Picture remake won’t be a live staging. Reportedly, this decision was made to attract top talent who were fearful of performing without the safety net of retakes.

Personally, I think there’s more pressure this way. At least if it’s live you can chalk it up to nerves, technical issues etc… With it being taped, I guarantee critics and viewers alike will be much more critical.

Christina Milian is the latest to join the project. Find out what her role is below.

rupauls-drag-race-season-8-cast

During the New Now Next Honors earlier this week, LOGO took the opportunity to reveal the cast of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8. It’s about friggin’ time 😉

The premiere will be a supersized 90-minute extravaganza on Monday, March 7. As it turns out, the premiere also marks a drag milestone as it features the 100th episode and 100th drag queen to sashay into the work room. Expect an unpredictable season full of head-turning twists.

“This is an amazing time to be producing television,” said executive producer RuPaul Charles. “The fact that ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is celebrating its 100th episode is undeniable proof that there is an insatiable hunger for authentic, unfiltered and ribald voices that not only challenge the norm, but help redefine mainstream media.”

The drag queens will be competing for a $100,000 cash prize and more importantly, the coveted title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”

The ones that made a solid first impression for me right away include Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls, Acid Betty and Derrick Barry. If you’ve been to Las Vegas, you’ll recognize Barry. Girlfriend does a sensational Britney Spears impersonation. If she makes it to the Snatch Game, you just know Barry will bring out his best Brit. Meet all the 12 fierce queens vying for your hearts this season.

February is going to be a busy month for Lady Gaga. In addition to her David Bowie tribute at the Grammys and performing at the 88th Academy Awards, the 29-year-old singer will also perform at Super Bowl 50. She’s been tapped to perform the National Anthem.

Mother Monster follows in the footsteps of Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson and Jordin Sparks to name a few. Idina Menzel sang “The Star-Spangled Banner” at last year’s game.

Gaga is the latest big name scheduled to perform this Sunday. Beyonce and Bruno Mars will join Coldplay during the Half-Time Show. Sunday night is going to be epic.

Do you think Gaga is a good choice to sing the National Anthem? I think so. Given that she slayed her Sound of Music tribute at the Oscars last year, she should have no problem this Sunday. Weigh in below.

Showtime’s Twin Peaks revival keeps getting better. 2017 can’t get here soon enough.

Deadline reports that Naomi Watts has reportedly booked a ticket to the fictional Washington town. Her new gig reunites the 47-year-old actress with David Lynch. The director cast her in her breakout role in the 2001 psychological thriller Mulholland Drive.

Watts joins a star-studded cast which includes returning Sheryl Lee, Sherilyn Fenn, Tom Sizemore and Kyle MacLachlan along with newbies Laura Dern, Balthazar Getty, Robert Knepper and Amanda Seyfried. It’s worth nothing that only MacLachlan’s casting has been confirmed by the network.

Filming is currently underway in Washington state. The series is set to debut in early 2017 on Showtime. Excited that Watts is on board? Weigh in below.
