VH1 Goes Scripted! One-Hour Dramedy Series Coming Next Month!

Filed under: TV NewsVH1Business BlitzReality TV

vh1 goes scripted with first one hour dramedy series

Guess we'll see if they'll keep up that success streak from Mob Wives.

While VH1 may be doing well with their new reality series, as we first mentioned back in October, the network has decided to move on to bigger and more scripted things with their new one hour dramedy series Single Ladies!

The show sort of premieres on May 30 with a "two-hour movie pilot," and then the first actual episode begins on June 6.

The network has ordered a 10 episode first season of the show, which "follows three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships." The actresses playing the friends are Stacey Dash, LisaRaye McCoy, and Charity Shea.

Here's what VH1's EVP of Original Programming and Production Jeff Olde had to say about the show:

"We are thrilled here at VH1 to be delving into our FIRST hour-long scripted series with Single Ladies. This series taps directly into relationship and love issues and shows women with real strengths, vulnerabilities, and flaws that many of our audience can directly identify with."

We give you lots of credit for expanding yourselves like this, VH1. Good luck!

Willie Nelson Busted Again Joins Jackass Crew For New Comedy!

willie nelson teams up with jackass crew

After the success of Jackass 3D, we're not surprised that Paramount would have lots of faith in Johnny Knoxville and co.

Back in 2008, Paramount purchased Mustache Riders, a comedy "about three small-time crooks who set off on an adventure to find a buried treasure with a grizzled old outlaw."

Now, we've learned that Knoxville, Bam Margera, and Ryan Dunn are attached to star in the project along with none other than Willie Nelson. Inneresting.

Looks like Paramount is re-working the script right now, to make sure that the Jackass crew will be able to "do all their own stunts" in the movie.

A scripted version of Jackass, eh? Could be amusing.

Plus, who could POSSIBLY miss out on a movie with a title like MUSTACHE RIDERS???

LOLz.

Still Happening! Nicole Richie To Star In Reality TV Show

Filed under: TV NewsNicole RichieParis HiltonReality TV

nicole richie to star in abc scripted comedy show

Another Simple Life would have been one unnecessary thing, but her own scripted TV show? Without Paris Hilton?!?!? We are intrigued.

ABC has closed a deal with Nicole Richie to star in a comedy about a professional woman/mom character. The show is being written by Jeff Rake, who wrote the 2009 comedy Miss March.

We'll be curious to hear more details about the show's plot as they emerge.

We wonder if this will start a trend. Will other former reality stars get their own scripted TV shows? Would people want to watch original Survivor winner Richard Hatch fighting crime with James Belushi?

Will U watch Nicole Richie when she makes her scripted debut on ABC?

The Donald Expands His Partnership With NBC Universal!

donald-trump-expands-business-partnership-with-nbc-universal-with-first-look-deal

We didn't think that he couldn't expand his empire anymore, but there he goes!

Donald Trump, on behalf of his company Trump Productions, has reportedly signed a multi-year first-look deal with NBC Universal, which will allow he and his company's president, Andy Litinsky, to create, develop, and executive produce any scripted, unscripted, animated, or syndicated TV projects for all of NBC's broadcast, cable, and syndication divisions!

Some of the projects currently in development include the reality business show Keep It In The Family, and the futuristic cartoon The Trump Universe!

Eh…we think it's probably best for The Donald to stick to reality television ventures! LOLz!

Thoughts??

Fresh From The MTV Butcher Shop!

Ugh! Why do they have to mess with things that were fine as they were?

MTV has picked up two new scripted TV series, which one would think was a nice departure from their god awful reality crap (that was not directed at you, Snooki) - if they weren't shiteous revamps!

The network will grant a series order to Teen Wolf, a reimagining of the 1985 Michael J. Fox film, and to a US version of the UK teen drama Skins!

Bleck! We can only imagine the werewolf costume! It's going to be absolutely HOrrific!

And we don't even want to comment on what they're going to do to Skins. The UK version is absolutely brilliant, why on Earth does it need to be re-done?!

You are on thin ice, MTV! Tread very lightly!
