Biography: Natalie Wood -- Sunday, July 17, 8 PM ET/PT, Biography

The lovely actress best remembered for her roles in 'Rebel Without a Cause' and 'West Side Story' lived a life that seemed designed for the tabloids. A child star at nine -- with a requisite pushy stage mother -- she blossomed into a serious actress and great beauty. Her on-again off-again relationship with Robert Wagner and her mysterious drowning death are all covered in this special.Also This Week:

The Future of Research in Motion
-- Tuesday, July 12, 8 PM ET, BNN

I wouldn't usually include live reporting from an annual general meeting in my TV highlights, but you have to admit the riches-to-rags story of RIM is more interesting than most. Once the undisputed leaders of hand-held technology with the BlackBerry, the company brought a tech boom to Canada, but now they're a possible takeover target. Honestly, it sounds like the plot of a TV show!

The Marriage Ref -- Sunday, July 17, 10 PM ET/PT, Citytv/NBC

Have I mentioned how much I like this show? I really do. And I love it when the list of the celebrities on the panel is totally cracked out, like it is this week. George Wallace -- the comedian, not the late former Alabama governor -- joins Charlie Sheen's ex, Denise Richards and 'SNL' star Seth Meyers, who recently reminded the world just how funny he can be with his White House Correspondents Dinner speech. This group will take on the long-standing arguments of three different couples. One of the couples is debating whether they should buy a bigger bed. They currently sleep in a twin bed. One twin bed.

Python Hunters -- Saturday, July 16, 7 PM ET/PT, OLN

This episode tracks Burmese pythons in the Florida Everglades, where -- as the name would suggest -- the species is not native. The thing about the Everglades, it's such a rich habitat that almost everything flourishes -- including invasive species. After watching, pick up a Carl Hiassen mystery for some fun summer reading -- you can imagine the pythons disposing of his villains.
