Reality TV show drops people into the wild for a year, doesn’t tell them show is canceled

After a year spent in the isolation of the Scottish wilderness, the contestants of BBC’s   Eden   have returned to civilization, where they’ve been greeted by a few surprises. “That’s why we did it and the story of their time, including the highs and the lows, will be shown later this year.”
In January,   The Press and Journal   reported that the makers of   Eden   had applied for planning permission for a second series. Tending livestock, growing food, and determining laws were all part of the experience. RELATED: Jersey Shore‘s 25 Most Outrageous Moments
The newspaper   reported “hunger, tiredness, and boredom” among the main reasons contestants gave up, along with “sexual jealousy” and a general disillusionment with the concept of the show. Eden   started airing in July 2016 on BBC’s Channel 4, but only the first four episodes   (covering the contestants’ experiences in March, April, and May) were broadcast. The first to leave, Tara Zieleman, reportedly faced some criticism from fellow cast members, but one of her biggest critics departed not long after. In September 2016, Scottish newspaper   The Press and Journal   reported that eight of the 23 original contestants had left the show. You're welcome. Happy Friday! Filming for   Eden   began in March 2016, when 23 strangers were placed in a remote, walled-off estate in the Scottish Highlands and tasked with building a society from scratch. Previous reports indicated the contestants were overwhelmed by insects and had resorted to smuggling in junk food. For starters, their country voted to leave the European Union and Donald Trump became president of the United States. The show’s last episode aired in August, while its last Twitter update came in October. But most relevant to them is the fact that the reality show they spent a year filming was pulled after only four episodes aired. #Eden pic.twitter.com/zo3Zbgyulj

In a statement to   The Guardian,   Channel 4 representatives promised that the remainder of the show would be aired sometime this year: “The appeal of Eden is that it was a real experiment and when filming began we had no idea what the results would be and how those taking part would react to being isolated for months in a remote part of the British Isles,” the network said. Unfortunately, problems cropped up quickly. Here's a cute animal pic.

Tom Hardy reads bedtime stories: 7 more we want to hear

Order it here. Order it here. Warren the 13th and the All-Seeing Eye by Tania del Rios and Will Staehle
This would be a double delight for viewers as not only are del Rios and Staehle’s books   filled with fun images and designs but the mystery-filled story of Warren, an orphan and future heir to his family’s hotel, is perfect for listeners of all ages who will be both surprised and delighted by the young hero’s quest to battle evil witches and save his beloved home. Jumanji by Chris Van Allsburg   
Both the 1995 fan fave flick and it’s   2017 “continuation”   can trace their roots back to Van Allsburg’ original literary creation that saw young Peter and Judy turn to the magical board game when they’re bored one afternoon. The progression would be elevated even further with Hardy’s deep voice capturing the pathos of Silverstein’s words, no doubt creating an experience that would stay with viewers well into the night. With this selection, kids get all the fun of Novak’s creativity with words — which will soon be applied to teaching the alphabet   — while parents (and fans in general) get all the joy of watching Hardy bring said words to life. He was Bane in   Dark Knight Rises and Max in   Mad Max: Fury Road, for goodness sake. Order it here. Order it here. Order it here. Well, he keeps doing it, so it must be true. Little Brown Young Readers
The Wild Robot   by Peter Brown
Brown’s book is a bestseller and one of EW’s Best Middle Grade Novels of 2016   for a reason. The earnest tale of Roz the Robot’s struggle to “grow up” and survive in the wild while making friends and adjusting to parenthood is utterly relatable and an instant classic —   something to which the actor could totally do justice. And yes, the text is long and doesn’t lend itself well to images, but the range of characters and the central puzzle   would be showcase of Hardy’s character work. 👉 https://t.co/QS4v1urSV3 @BBCiPlayer#TomHardy#MothersDay pic.twitter.com/7ZpFBHWfio
— CBeebies Grown-Ups (@CBeebiesHQ) March 26, 2017

With Hardy bringing his voice to so many book lovers young and   old, we put together a list of reading material that we’d like to see the dog-loving actor   apply his thespian skills to:
The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Dial Books
The Giving Tree   by Shel Silverstein
This perennial classic (which has since become real) has everything: iconic characters, an emotional sacrifice, and a deeply meaningful message. So he’s obviously the perfect guy to read a bedtime story, right? Penguin Random House

Show Full Article And the reason for his latest literary delight? None other than Mother’s Day, which was celebrated on March 26 in the United Kingdom this year. The Taboo   star’s third outing as part of BBC’s CBeebies Bed Time Stories   saw him read aloud from Ross Collins’   There’s a Bear on My Chair, which you can see a brief clip of below. Climo’s sweet illustrations of the tiny dino’s hilarious adventures would make for captivating visuals while letting Hardy have fun and get loose with the light-hearted story that sees Rory attempt to give his father some space and interfere with the older dinosaur’s simple desire for a nap. Order it here. Novak
Not only is this book fun to read aloud, but Hardy’s words are often accompanied by images from the book he’s reading. The award-winning story’s animal-filled twists and turns, combined with Hardy’s ability to speak in a low growl when needed, would allow fans excited for the movie to reacquaint themselves original while still getting a movie-worthy narration experience. Hardy first graced fans with his take on bedtime tales on special occasions like New Year’s Eve   and later Valentine’s Day. (Plus who doesn’t want to hear Tom Hardy’s impression of a monkey?)   Order it here. Rory the Dinosaur: Me and My Dad by Liz Climo
Rory is a young dinosaur with lots of imagination, and energy   — much to his patient father’s chagrin. Unusual Corporation & Quirk Books
The Westing Game by Ellen Raskin
The Westing Game is a solid all-ages mystery novel, and Hardy’s narration would allow for whole families to experience Raskin’s classic together — with parents getting the chance to travel back to their own childhoods as they hear the words read aloud once more. One more time? Not to mention the fact that a longer text would allow for more footage of a neatly-bearded, cardigan-clad Hardy. Tom Hardy is known for playing dark and twisty, action-packed characters.

Sarah Silverman will tackle politics in new Hulu series

Trailers from Hell: Karyn Kusama recalls the insanity of ‘Bugsy Malone’

“I have a very strong sense of how strange the experience was, of watching children play in a sort of gangster epic, and to see that Jodie Foster was playing this sort of gun moll tough-girl and Scott Baio was playing the hero, though his voice hadn’t begun to break, so there was a funny disconnect between her toughness and his little boy voice.”

Abby Lee Miller says she’s quitting ‘Dance Moms’ after being ‘manipulated and disrespected’

#dancemoms #season7 #ALDC #aldcalways #newbeginnings #aldcla #alllovedancecourage
A post shared by Abby Lee Miller (@therealabbylee) on Mar 26, 2017 at 9:35pm PDT

Miller   noted that she had recently defied a producer’s orders to have her popular piece “Where Have All the Children Gone” performed —   “ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS!” she said. I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT! I don't have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people's children successful! “FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL!”

The majority of children that follow me may be fast asleep, however now is the critical time to make the following statement: I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS. This story originally appeared on PEOPLE.com. In January,   the reality star   agreed to   forfeit $120,000 in Australian currency that she snuck into the country, the   Associated Press   reported. Abby Lee Miller is saying goodbye to Dance Moms. TODAY, I WAS SO PROUD THAT I WENT AGAINST THE PRODUCER'S IDEA (ONCE AGAIN) TO ENTER A COMMAND PERFORMANCE OF ONE OF MY FAVORITE NUMBERS… "WHERE HAVE ALL THE CHILDREN GONE?" ALONG WITH THREE BEAUTIFUL SOLOS! The 50-year-old dance instructor announced her resignation in an Instagram post on Sunday, accusing officials behind the popular Lifetime show of treating her “like dirt” after she wrapped filming for season 7B. Officials postponed Miller’s sentencing court date in February. “I JUST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH BEING MANIPULATED, DISRESPECTED, AND USED – DAY IN AND DAY OUT BY MEN WHO NEVER TOOK A DANCE LESSON IN THEIR LIVES AND TREAT WOMEN LIKE DIRT!”
Lifetime has yet to officially comment   on Miller’s announcement, which comes as the choreographer finds herself in the midst of a bankruptcy fraud case. “I WILL NO LONGER TAKE PART IN DANCE MOMS,” Miller wrote. “I don’t have a problem working with any kid, I love children and have dedicated my life to making other people’s children successful!” she continued. FOR THE PAST SIX YEARS/ SEVEN SEASONS I HAVE ASKED, BEGGED, AND EVEN DEMANDED CREATIVE CREDIT FOR ALL THE IDEAS, AWARD WINNING ROUTINES, THEMES, AND COSTUMING – TO NO AVAIL!

Pharrell Williams producing movie musical inspired by his childhood

Toy Story 4 writer Martin Hynes will write the screenplay. In all, Hidden Figures earned three Oscar nominations, including best picture, and it raked in more than $220 million at the global box office. After earning an Oscar nomination for producing Hidden Figures, Pharrell Williams has lined up his next project: a musical based on his own childhood. Williams is set to produce alongside Gil Netter and Mimi Valdes. EW has confirmed that Fox is developing the film, a movie musical titled Atlantis. Per The Hollywood Reporter, which first reported the news, Atlantis is being described as a “Romeo and Juliet style story (with a music element) inspired by Williams’ childhood in Virginia Beach.”

Broadway alum Michael Mayer, who won a Tony Award for Spring Awakening, is attached to direct Atlantis. A 10-time Grammy winner, Williams is best known for his music career, but he’s also been involved in some high-profile film projects. Show Full Article Mayer also directed the Broadway stage adaptation of American Idiot, as well as the 2006 film Flicka. He earned his first Oscar nomination in 2014 for writing the song “Happy” for Despicable Me 2, and he previously teamed up with Fox to produce and write the music for Hidden Figures.

‘The Flash’: Who is Savitar?

She has trouble doing that and when she does reveal what it is, it’s not something that Cisco sees coming.”
Subsequently, Barry will take a trip to the future in a bid for answers. However, bargaining with the villain may come with a price — more on that here. Show Full Article “The tricky thing in [Tuesday’s episode] is that what brings her over to our Earth and our reality is a secret from her past that Cisco spends most of the episode really grappling with her on and trying to get her to be open about. “Now you’re going to see how everything unfolds and it’s going to be a little bit different than what you’ve seen,” EP Todd Helbing says, cautioning, “Time is harder to change than even Barry realizes.”
Asked to tease one thing about the finale, Kreisberg offers: “You’re definitely going to cry.”
The Flash airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. “They need to figure out who he is first,” Grant Gustin tells EW. Either way, the team will get an assist with the return of Gypsy (Jessica Camacho), whom Cisco (Carlos Valdes) hopes to further his relationship with. As Team Flash — and therefore the viewers — inch closer to that fateful night where Iris (Candice Patton) is destined to die, Helbing also teases that the ultimate showdown is “going to be incredibly emotional and epic at the same time — not epic in a grand scale, but epic in how it impacts everybody.”
Whether Barry will be able to save Iris or not, the finale is slated to catch up to that grim future we’ve glimpsed several times over the last few episodes. While Barry was attempting to free Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) from the Speed Force during a recent episode of The Flash, Jesse Quick (Violett Beane) went toe-to-toe with this season’s big bad, piercing a part of his armor and discovering that he could actually be wounded, thus he can potentially be stopped. “Catching him could provide the key to Savitar’s identity,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg says. “It impacts everybody and makes them question everything that they’ve known for the past three seasons,” EP Aaron Helbing says. It’s going to be a challenge to stop this guy. “I love that our show is so involved that it can inspire people to come up with their own theories and conspiracies about what’s going on with the plot,” Valdes says. It’s going to be a different kind of challenge than we’ve ever had.”

So, who’s really under that mask? Of course, I know what’s going to happen, but it’s fun to watch fans just create labyrinths for themselves.”
Whoever is revealed under that mask will certainly change the show moving forward. “She’s very protective of her own emotions and her own vulnerabilities, but I think the magic of the chemistry between the two is that Cisco can cut right through that and see her for who she really is,” Valdes says. Now that Team Flash knows Savitar is not a god, but an actual person, the race is on to try to find out who’s under that armor. “Hopefully, if we’ve done our jobs right, you will be both shocked and also go, ‘That makes perfect sense.’ So hopefully we’ve laid the groundwork for it all to make sense not just in the moment, but hopefully you look back and you realize how important it was for Barry to face this particular villain in his journey as a hero and how this season ties into all the others.”
Some theories have emerged that a future version of Wally could be the villain — after all, Savitar did say he created himself — or he could even be a future version of — twist! All involved are staying relatively mum. “Barry is going to realize that the hunt for Savitar’s identity might not lie in the present, which will take the show in a fun and interesting direction,” Kreisberg teases of episode 19, aptly titled “The Once and Future Flash.” Adds Gustin: “This is definitely his most involved trip to the future or the past because he’s there for a predominant part of the episode and tries to get some clues as to how this went down in the future so he can come back and stop it. — Barry! “I honestly just prefer to stay out of it and watch it all happen, like a mastermind just watching all the pieces collect themselves. “They don’t even know where to start.”
They may get help in that department with the arrival of Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian), a metahuman villain from the future. ET on The CW. Barry starts to get some answers pretty soon. “When we have a masked villain, we do our best to subvert audience’s expectations,” Kreisberg says.

True Detective season 3 revived, David Milch joins team

Of course, you already know True Detective launched to considerable acclaim and fan fascination in 2014 and then fell into a sophomore slump with the critics during its second season in 2015. There is no movement on any follow-up to Milch’s former HBO show. At any rate, adding at least some of Milch’s voice into the   True Detective   universe could be very cool for fans of both franchises if this newfound alliance between two strong voices works out. And speaking of waiting a long time for dramas to return, any story about Milch and HBO cannot avoid addressing the extremely long-awaited return of 2006’s   Deadwood (as a movie or miniseries). We have also learned that Emmy-winning writer-producer David Milch — the mind behind dramas such as Deadwood and NYPD Blue — is coming on board to work with Pizzolatto. Obviously, Milch’s experience as a writer will be a key component, but for the record he’s not expected to serve as the   True Detective showrunner (at this stage, there is no specified season 3 showrunner). Show Full Article After two years off the air and plenty of speculation about its future, HBO’s   True Detective is making some progress behind the scenes toward a new season. We’re open to somebody else writing it and Nic supervising it. In July 2016, HBO head of programming Casey Bloys assured “…both Nic and HBO are open to another season. It’s a valuable franchise, it’s not dead, we just don’t have a take for a third season yet.”
Recently Matthew McConaughey — who starred in the first season — has publicly said he would be interested in reprising his role, but there’s no indication at this time what creative direction the next season would take. EW has exclusively learned that creator Nic Pizzolatto has penned at least the first two episodes for a potential third edition of the acclaimed anthology crime drama. Also keep in mind a third season has also not yet been greenlit, so new episodes are far from certain. I don’t think Nic has a take and he’s working on some other projects. And with star Ian McShane on the upcoming American Gods over on HBO’s premium cable rival Starz, I wouldn’t expect anything new on that front for longer still (McShane is locked up at least two years, according to a recent interview). Both seasons were successful in the ratings, but it’s been unclear whether Pizzolatto was going to produce a third season, and in what capacity he would serve in such an outing. The extent of Pizzolatto and Milch’s collaboration is still early days and not yet formalized.

Kim Kardashian wants baby No. 3 with Kanye West, despite rough pregnancies

Simply shocked. Latest updates And concerned. Some background for those not keeping up with the next generation of Kardashian Wests: Daughter North arrived a month ahead of time after mom dealt with early-onset preeclampsia and then, post-delivery, the placenta did not detach from Kim’s uterine wall;   son Saint West was breech, and the placenta issue recurred. Kim Kardashian West, whose two pregnancies have been far less than comfortable for the reality star, says she’s   going to try to have another baby.”I want my kids to have siblings, but the doctors don’t think it’s safe for me,” she says in a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it promo for the next episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.”   If the editing of the reactions from Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner and Kourtney   Kardashian is to be believed, the family was shocked by Kim’s smiling announcement.

Ted Koppel tells Sean Hannity he’s bad for America; Hannity fires back

He questioned why CBS only aired two minutes of his 45-minute interview in the 10-minute segment before demanding the network release the full interview so people could see the truth.This is not the first time that Koppel has found himself at odds with outspoken political pundits. (Appearing on O’Reilly’s   show last year, Koppel told the host:   “You have changed the television landscape over the past 20 years. During an interview with Koppel, Hannity   said:   “We have to give some credit to the American people that they’re somewhat intelligent and they know the difference between an opinion show and a news show.””You think we’re bad for America?” Hannity asked, to which Koppel immediately responded, “Yeah.””You think I’m bad for America?” Hannity   clarified. In 2010, Koppel   wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post bemoaning the rise of Fox News and MSNBC and their politically partisan personalities, including Keith Olbermann and Bill O’Reilly. In a decidedly unsurprising turn of events, veteran newsman Ted Koppel and Fox News personality Sean Hannity   have polarizing reactions to Koppel’s   “CBS News   Sunday Morning” segment on the political polarization of America.The 10-minute analysis attributed the growing rise in political discord to the Federal Communications Commission’s 1987 revocation of the Fairness Doctrine, which required broadcasters to present contrasting views for matters of public interest.In the wake of the revocation, highly politicized personalities and networks were given room to thrive, leading to   an environment where individuals on either side of the aisle are unable to agree on what are the facts.Enter Sean Hannity. You took it from being objective and dull to subjective and entertaining.”)Koppel   was the host of ABC’s “Nightline” for 25 years and now serves as a special contributor for “CBS News Sunday Morning.” Latest updates Again, Koppel   answered in the affirmative.It wasn’t the only notable exchange between the two in the segment, which featured Hannity calling for the defeat of liberalism and asserting that the press is out to destroy the president. Hannity went on a Twitter tear after the telecast Sunday morning.

‘Power Rangers’ director explains why romantic scene didn’t make final cut

“I think it was actually kind of lovely that the audience pushed so hard against that, and the moment we took it out, everybody liked Kimberly way more and felt she was much stronger, and I loved that we got that reaction.”
“I loved that we did it,” he adds, “because my intention was never to have a female character try and be there for the male’s arc. “Nobody liked the kiss,” he says of viewer   reactions early on. It was always that she needed to stand independent of him.” And besides, with more films likely to come   in the franchise (especially after its better-than-expected box office over opening weekend), there will be plenty more opportunities for Ranger romance. Power Rangers   is now in theaters. Kimberley French
“For that scene to culminate in some kind of romantic moment between her and Jason undermines her character and feels a little old-fashioned and becomes a movie trope of the female lead there to support some kind of male arc,” he explains. In a scene from the Power Rangers   big-screen   reboot   that   wound up on the cutting room floor, Kimberly the Pink Ranger (Naomi Scott) kisses Jason the Red Ranger (Dacre Montgomery) after sneaking into his bedroom to talk and confess why she wound up in detention. Love was in the air for a pair of Power Rangers — until   test audiences said no. Israelite says he agreed, noting that the transition from an intense conversation to a   romantic spark shifted the story from being about Kimberly supporting herself to being about Kimberly supporting Jason. The smooch made it into trailers including this one, around the 1:29 mark:

At test screenings, however, audiences liked the moment   about as much as Zordon liked Rita Repulsa, director Dean Israelite tells EW, which is why it was ultimately excised from the final cut. Show Full Article “It’s one of those rare times in a preview when something is so unanimous.”
But   the audience didn’t react negatively to the kiss simply because it was a kiss; instead, fans pointed out that having the pair lock lips   distracted from the intention of the scene itself, which up until then   was showing Kimberly’s growth as a character from a mean girl to a Power Ranger.
