Jane Lynch, Cyndi Lauper Developing ‘Golden Girls’-Style Comedy for Netflix
Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper just wanna have fun. The comedian and the 1980s music icon have joined forces to star in a new comedy project that may be heading to Netflix.

Lynch let it slip backstage at the Creative Arts Emmys that she and Lauper will co-star in a comedy that she described as “kind of a ‘Golden Girls’ for today.”

A quick Internet search revealed that writer and comedian Carol Leifer (“Seinfeld”) is behind the show as well. “It’s official, heading out next with a new half-hour comedy, starring Jane Lynch and Cyndi Lauper,” Leifer wrote on Facebook in July. “A writer’s dream to work with these two legends. Can’t wait to see where we land…”

According to Lynch, it’s Netflix: “I pitched a show to Netflix and they bought it,” she told reporters after winning the Emmy for guest actress in a comedy

No Offense Arrowverse, but Bones and Sleepy Hollow Already Had the Best TV Crossover of All Time

Forget "Scoobynatural." Forget "Crisis on Infinite Earths." Forget that time The X-Files crossed over with Cops. TV crossovers peaked in 2015 when Fox decided that Bones and Sleepy Hollow existed in a shared universe.

Full disclosure: I had never watched Bones in my life prior to the TV event of the

This Cursed Bones Promo Keeps Me Up at Night

Despite the fact that Bones ran for 12 seasons, I had never watched an episode of the Fox procedural, with the exception of its 2015 crossover with Sleepy Hollow (which is a whole other story). But that has never stopped me from talking about Bones. I don't know why, but I absolutely love talking

Quiz: How Well Do You Remember Bones?

The thing about Bones was that you almost never had to know anything about Bones to watch an episode of Bones. The Fox procedural, which racked up 246 episodes across 12 seasons, went out of its way to be as accessible as possible to casual fans -- but because it always seemed to be on, it was just

I Watched the 100th Episode of Bones Without Watching the Previous 99

Before Bones Day, I had never watched an episode of Bones, despite having 246 chances to do so. So when my colleague Kelly Connolly put together Bones Day, she assigned me the 100th episode to watch and give my immediate, unfiltered reactions. I wasn't sure how I'd be able to relate to the

No Bones Episode Could Ever Top Season 2's 'Aliens in a Spaceship'

Before we get started, I need you to know something important: I stopped watching Bones sometime around its fourth season. Despite this, I can say without any doubt that Season 2's "Aliens in a Spaceship" is the best episode of the entire Fox series. I don't need to have watched the final eight

Fox Settles ‘Bones’ Profit Dispute

  • Variety
Fox has settled its long-running profits litigation over the crime show “Bones,” during which an arbitrator accused top Fox executives of lying on the witness stand.

The arbitrator, Peter Lichtman, issued a blistering ruling in February, in which he accused Dana Walden, Gary Newman and Peter Rice of engaging a “reprehensible” cover-up of Fox’s behavior.

The plaintiffs — actors David Boreanaz, Emily Deschanel and producers Kathy Reichs and Barry Josephson — alleged that Fox had cheated them out of tens of millions of dollars in profit participations.

Lichtman awarded them $50 million in compensatory damages and another $128 million in punitive damages — one of the largest such judgments in Hollywood history. Fox’s attorneys, however, persuaded Judge Richard Rico that Lichtman had exceeded his authority, and Rico agreed in May to set aside the punitive damages award.

At the time, the plaintiffs’ attorneys vowed to appeal. Instead, they settled the dispute on undisclosed terms.

Fox Settles With ‘Bones’ Stars and Producers Over Profit Participation Lawsuit

  • The Wrap
Fox has reached a settlement over the long-running profit participation lawsuit with “Bones” stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, executive producer Barry Josephson and Kathy Reichs, the forensic anthropologist whose books inspired the show.

Both parties filed dismissal papers in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, which brings an end to the ongoing lawsuit that was first filed in 2015. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed.

The dispute centered on the license fees that the Fox network, Fox’s foreign affiliates and the streaming service Hulu — in which 21st Century Fox has a stake — paid to 20th Century Fox for the rights to air or stream the series. “Bones” aired on Fox from 2005 to 2017.

Zoe on The Young & The Restless — Everything You Need to Know

A new face arrived in Genoa City when Anna Grace Barlow joined the cast of The Young & The Restless as Zoe Hardisty on Aug. 15. The soap teased that "Zoe shares a surprising past with a member of Genoa City's jet set." And it turned out she was the secret that Theo and Kyle had been hiding from their time in NYC! "Thank you to everyone at Y&r and CBS Daytime," Barlow gushed on Instagram when the news of her casting broke. "This is a dream!" Summer Newman pressed Theo Vanderway to confess the secret he was holding over Kyle Abbott's head, and he came clean about how while they were partying it up in Manhattan, a young woman got so drunk she ended up in the ER. The pair found out Zoe was underage, and when her father showed up the next day, Kyle paid him off to keep the whole thing quiet.

That's Joseph C. Phillips Playing Judge Sanders on The Young & The Restless

If you thought Judge Sanders on The Young & The Restless, it's probably because you recognize actor Joseph C. Phillips from one of his many other roles! He got his start back in the mid-'80s as Cruiser on Search For Tomorrow, but soap fans would probably be more likely to recognize him from his role of Justus Ward, which he played on both General Hospital and Port Charles. In primetime, Phillips has appeared on series like The King Of Queens, Judging Amy, Bones, and NCIS among others and has had recurring roles on Vanished, Without A Trace, and 13 Reasons Why. Or perhaps viewers might recognize him from the classic NBC sitcom The Cosby Show, where Phillips played Navy Lieutenant Martin Kendall from 1989-91. Sanders held Christian's future in his hands. (Photo Credit: Howard Wise/jpistudios.com) This isn't actually Phillips' first appearance on Y&r. Judge Sanders was on back at

‘Veep’ set decorators Kimberly Wannop and David Smith on creating the Meyer Presidential Library and more [Exclusive Video Interview]

‘Veep’ set decorators Kimberly Wannop and David Smith on creating the Meyer Presidential Library and more [Exclusive Video Interview]
Shooting the final season of “Veep” was an “emotional” experience for set decorator Kimberly Wannop, who had joined the show in 2016. It was especially difficult given that production was halted for a year following Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘s cancer diagnosis. “We started up already saying goodbye, and then really had to shut it down,” she reveals. Once filming finally began it was “hard to say goodbye” to the characters. Watch our exclusive video interview with Wannop and fellow set decorator David Smith above.

See ‘Veep’ would be the rare comedy series to win for its last season

Because she was pregnant, Wannop brought on Smith to assist on the series finale, so it was the only episode of the long-running political satire he ever worked on. In fact, she gave birth on his first day of production. It was like “being thrown off the diving board into the deep end of the pool,

ABC Seeking Big Provocative Soap, Light Crime Drama & Adult Comedy This Development Season

  • Deadline
In her first full development season, ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke will be pursuing the goal she set for herself when she joined ABC last December — to bring back female viewers to ABC and reclaim the title as No.1 network with women. She is looking to do that by developing shows that would attract women while also not alienating ABC’s male viewers.

Top priority is finding “a big, provocative soap,” Burke told Deadline. Provocative does not mean sexy, she was quick to clarify. Instead, the word refers to bold, loud storytelling. It could be a family soap but the setting also could be workplace or sci-fi, Burke said, pointing to past ABC hits Lost and Desperate Housewives as examples. Burke also is open to a franchise soap like ABC’s flagship drama, the venerable Grey’s Anatomy.

Also on the wish list for one-hour series is finding a strong “crimedy,

James Wan's New Horror Movie, aka Silvercup: Cast and Details

David Crow Kayti Burt Joseph Baxter Sep 5, 2019

James Wan’s next film, before helming Aquaman 2, will be a mysterious new horror movie at New Line.

James Wan is at an interesting place in his career. While he proved his action movie bonafides several years ago with the stressful production of Furious 7, it was last year that he managed to successfully launch a new superhero franchise with a wild premise and little in the way of a popular shared universe to fall back on. Nevertheless, Aquaman was gonzo, bubblegum fun that grossed about $1.2 billion at the box office. So, in theory, he could do anything he’d want next. Which makes news that he’s returning to horror so intriguing.

The revelation came out of a rather cryptic announcement than Wan is locked in to direct a currently untitled horror movie set up at Warner’s New Line Cinema

Bones: All Of Brennan's Interns, Ranked

‘The Boys’ Review: What If Superheroes Broke Bad (Again)?
Superheroes — they’re so like us! We kid. Mere mortals can’t stop bullets and leap buildings in a single bound, or use our vast wealth to construct secret lairs and Batmobiles, or command the denizens of the seven seas, or run faster than the speed of light. But let’s say they were as petty and horrible as us. What if the Justice League’s headquarters was filled with as much with toxic masculinity and sexual harassment as your average workplace? What if caped crusaders preached anti-gay sentiments at
