Queen Latifah Teams Up With VH1

Filed under: TV NewsFilm FlickersQueen LatifahVH1

queen latifah teams up with vh1 for new tv series single ladies

Looks like VH1 is teaming up with the Queen!

The network has picked up Queen Latifah's movie and eight episode dramedy Single Ladies.

The show stars Stacey Dash from Clueless, and it's being billed as a "relationship, comedic drama set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity."

Here's more from the press release:

"Single Ladies" is a comedic drama about Val, Keisha, and April - three best friends with different philosophies on sex and relationships. Val (Stacey Dash) is an ambitious aspiring fashion mogul who wants to find a true partner. Keisha (LisaRaye McCoy), on the other hand, is a former video dancer just looking for a rich man to keep her in style. April (Charity Shea,) has supposedly found the perfect man and the perfect marriage - but is learning that marriage isn't necessarily a happy ending. "Single Ladies" is a modern, sexy series set in the world of Atlanta fashion, music, and celebrity that will constantly explore which woman has the right approach to relationships.

The show will be written by The Wanda Sykes Show writer Stacey Littlejohn, and it's being directed by Tamra Davis, of Grey's Anatomy and Ugly Betty fame.

Here's more on the project from VH1's EVP of Original Programming and Production, Jeff Olde:

"This movie and now the series is the perfect way for VH1 to jump into the scripted arena. It taps directly into relationship issues and life questions that we know our audience loves, and it does it via a gorgeous, funny, diverse and talented cast of strong female characters. Their complex lives and loves play out against a super hip Atlanta backdrop which is sure to be a character in the movie. Once we saw an early cut of the movie we knew right away we needed to make this a series."

Here's a statement by Queen Latifah from a press release:

"My partner Shakim and I are excited to collaborate with VH1, as they have a similar vision on how to bring this show to life. I think Single Ladies will really fill a hole in what is needed on television today."

Sounds like this def has potential to become a hit.

Will U tune in for Single Ladies on VH1?

Ugly Betty: The Movie???

americaferrerae.jpg

Could an Ugly Betty movie be on the horizon?

Here’s what America Ferrera’s had to say about the possibility of an Ugly Betty movie:

No news on it! I think that the rumor is well and alive — it’s always a possibility I suppose! But I don’t know about any plans.

At the very least, it sounds like Ferrera is open to the idea.

In the meanwhile, for those of us who need our America fix, she’ll be taking over hosting duties on the ninth season of PBS’s docu-series Independent Lens.

For those of us who like our America less serious, we seem to recall two separate movies about sisterhoods and traveling pants, both of which feature Ms. Ferrera.

Would U like to see an Ugly Betty movie?

Perez Hilton To Host Male View (Please?)

barbarabille.jpg

Hey…it worked for Betty White!

Co-creators of The View, Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie, are looking into developing a View spin-off, but this time with a male perspective.

Sources have said that if it makes it through development, the show would be produced in L.A.

Hmm….Los Angeles? Male Perspective? Hot Topics of the day?

PEREZ HILTON would be PERFECT for that!

A source has said that like the original show, the new View would feature five co-hosts. Walters and Geddie currently have a wish-list of four personalities, which include former Today Show host Bryant Gumbel, Ugly Betty alum Alec Mapa, former BET news anchor Jacque Reid, and Fox News alum E.D. Hill.

Walters and Geddie are undecided about who they would like for the fifth host.

Who do U think would be a good fifth host? cough…Perez Hilton…cough

Kings Of Leon Turned Down Glee!

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsMusic MinuteM.I.A.Glee

Oh, whatever, boys!

You guys sold out segued shamelessly into mainstream with Only By The Night, don't act like you're so 'above' popular culture now!

Kings Of Leon's frontman Caleb Folowill revealed that he and the band rejected opportunities for their music to be performed on Glee, as well as Ugly Betty (R.I.P.) and various movie trailers!

He says:

"We had some people call us up wanting to know if we'd allow Use Somebody to appear in the trailer for their next movie, and we turned them down. Next day, they called back and tried to put us through to the star of the movie — I won't name names, but he's an incredibly famous actor — to let him try and convince us to agree to do it. I was like, 'Man, don't even waste your energy'."

Oh, wow! You guys are sooooo cool!

BARF.

We sincerely hope they aren't going to take the MGMT and M.I.A. route and shit all over all of their fans, because they'd rather be nonconformist and 'above' mainstream instead of focusing on making decent music!

So lame!

Thoughts??

Congrats, bb!

Becki Newton, best known for her character on Ugly Betty, is pregnant with her first child.

Happy news right? Not for NBC!

Becki has been cast in a new show for the network called Love Bites. The show was supposed to start its run come this fall, but because of her pregnancy, the show's been pushed back to mid season. NBC’s executive VP of current programming, Vernon Sanders, explains:

“She plays a virgin [in the pilot episode], so we have to make adjustments to that."

Uh, yeah! That sounds like a plan!

Lucky they are willing to wait for her. Close call!

Just like Daniel Meade, he's heading to London!

Ugly Betty star Eric Mabius has been tapped to join Outcasts, and eight-episode, big-budget miniseries for the U.K.'s top producing company.

The sci-fi series, set in 2040, is about a group of people who flee from Earth after a biological catastrophe wipes out most of the human race. Some 50,000 emigrants from Earth find another life supporting planet in a neighboring solar system and get to work building a new civilization. Eric is set to play the vice president of the evacuation program.

You Brits will have to let us know how this one goes.

Yes! Ugly Betty Movie Possibly In The Works!!

ugly_betty_ver3jb.jpg

Well this would certainly be exciting!

For everyone who was devastated with Ugly Betty's disappointing premature cancellation, rest easy tonight! According to Anna Ortiz, who plays Hilda, there could be a big screen adaptation in no time!

She says:

“There may be a movie. It’s something that we’ve been talking about and it’s something that [Ugly Betty star] America Ferrera would really love to do. That woman has so much determination that I can’t imagine anything she puts her mind to not getting done. Ugly Betty has been the most important thing I’ve ever done, easily. I was able to do more with one character than I can ever imagine doing again — Hilda was hilariously funny and emotionally deep.”

Yes!

Make it happen!!

What do U think?? Would U go see an Ugly Betty flick??
