NBC Orders Law & Order Reality Spin-off

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Currently, Chicago Fire is the apple of NBC’s eye. Two spin-offs and counting have come from the Dick Wolf drama. Just when you thought the peacock network had bleed Wolf’s other franchise, Law & Order, dry, comes word another spin-off is coming. But here’s the twist. It’s a reality series.

NBC has greenlit a one-hour courtroom docu-drama series titled Law & Order: You The Jury. This isn’t the first time Wolf has toyed with the jury as the primary focus of a series. Law & Order: Trial By Jury starring Bebe Neuwirth was a one-and-done drama flop. This time though, it’ll be different. Not only will it be live, but interactive as well.

NBC Giving A Classic TV Show A Gay Reboot

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows

Here’s one reboot that I’m 100 percent on board with.

According to Deadline, NBC is developing a reboot of the 1979 mystery-adventure drama, Hart To Hart. But it’s doing it with a gay twist.

The two leads will be two gay characters. It is “described as a modern and sexy retelling of the classic series that focuses on “by the book” attorney Jonathan Hart and free-spirited investigator Dan Hartman, who must balance the two sides of their life: action-packed crime-solving in the midst of newly found domesticity.”

The series starring Robert Wagner and Stefanie Powers was co-produced by Aaron Spelling and aired for five seasons on the alphabet network. Carol Mendelsohn (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, Melrose Place and Wiseguy) is producing the potential new series. Christopher Fife (Revenge) is penning the pilot script.

Check out the original intro below which explains the premise of the show.

Although some have come close, no competitor had yet to achieve total victory and claim the prize. After seven seasons, somebody finally completed all four stages and 23 obstacles of Mt. Midoriyama. Correction. Two people did.

Geoff Britten was the first to complete the once-impossible course, but rock climber Isaac Caldiero bested his time by just a few minutes to earn the title of American Ninja Warrior and walk away with the $1 million prize. At least Britten has the distinction of doing it first, albeit just due to race order.

“Winning this event always seemed impossible,” said the 33-year-old Caldiero “As the first American Ninja Warrior I want to use this opportunity to inspire the world to find your impossible and conquer it.”

It’ll be interesting to see if more competitors conquer Mt. Midoriyama next season. Or will producers increase the difficulty even more now that two men have finished the course? Here’s hoping a woman can also reach the summit. If you missed it, check out both Britten and Caldiero’s incredible runs below.

When NBC cut ties with Donald Trump, a short list of personalities quickly emerged as ones being eyed to helm Celebrity Apprentice. Among them were Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Sir Richard Branson, Martha Stewart and George Lopez. It appears the network has gone with someone else. Variety reports The Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, will helm the next season.

Bob Harper Is New Biggest Loser Host

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Alison Sweeney has hosted The Biggest Loser since Season 4, replacing a departing Caroline Rhea. A few weeks ago, the Days of Our Lives actress revealed she was leaving the show after helming the reality series for 13 cycles.

Stepping into the vacant hosting position is Bob Harper. The 50-year-old trainer has appeared on the show since its inception for a whopping 16 seasons. For Season 17, he moves aside to let Dolvett Quince and Jennifer Widerstrom whip the contestants back into shape.

“I’m super excited about taking the position of host on The Biggest Loser, says Harper, who will continue to offer his training expertise to contestants at various points throughout the season. “I’ve been with the show since Season 1 so I know all of the ins and outs, and let me tell you, the weigh-in room is going to be a completely different ballgame with me at the steering wheel.”

Season 17 begins production this month and will return to the team-versus-team format. Excited to see Harper take on a new role? Sound off below.

Tracy Morgan Returns To Saturday Night Live

In: Donovan, TV Shows

From 1996 to 2003, Tracy Morgan was a cast member on Saturday Night Live. This October 17, the 46-year-old heads back to his former stomping grounds to host. I fully expect other alums to come back to celebrate this homecoming.

His return marks his first major appearance since he was critically injured in a car accident back in June 2014. That tragedy took the life of his longtime friend and colleague, James McNair.

NBC also revealed two other big names booked to host during SNL’s 41st season. Find out below which two ladies received a call.

The Wiz Live! Finds Its Good Witches

In: Donovan, Music

There were rumblings that Beyonce was being courted to play Glinda, the Good Witch of the South. Sadly for the BeyHive, that never came to fruition. Even though, I’m pretty sure the “Drunk In Love” singer was on top of NBC’s wish list, their final pick is a solid one.

Orange Is The New Black actress Uzo Aduba has scored the coveted role. Before her breakout role of Crazy Eyes, the 34-year-old actress appeared on Broadway in Godspell. Find out below who’s playing her sister on The Wiz Live!

After an exhaustive search, NBC has finally found its Dorothy. Relative newcomer Shanice Williams beat out the competition to play the iconic role previously played by Diana Ross and Stephanie Mills. The 18-year-old New Jersey native has appeared in local productions of West Side Story, 42nd Street, Pippin and other titles.

NBC made the big reveal on The Today Show. Williams joins recently-announced David Alan Grier as the Cowardly Lion and Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige as The Wiz and The Wicked Witch of the West respectively. Beyonce is reportedly being courted to play Glinda the Good Witch.

Congrats to Williams for what will undoubtedly be a star-making gig. Girls has some pipes. Check out her audition below. Williams eases down the road in The Wiz Live!, airing on Thursday, December 4 on NBC.
