TNT & TBS have big plans for original content

by Brett Love, posted May 15th 2008 12:41PM

TNTAmong many announcements from TNT at upfront week was the stated goal to dramatically increase original content. The network aims to eventually reach 80% original content, with plans for three original nights a week by 2010. How are they going to reach those goals? With cops. Lots and lots of cops.

We've already heard about the new Donnie Wahlberg DEA series, Morse Code. Three other cop shows are in development at the network, including Delta Blues, from executive producer George Clooney, which follows the story of a Memphis cop who does a little Elvis impersonating on the side. 24 co-creator Joel Surnow is also joining the TNT family with an as yet untitled series built around an ATF agent. Finishing off the law enforcement party is Angel City. Written by L.A. cop Will Beall and Barry Schindel, Angel City is being compared to Adam-12. Read on past the jump for the less cuff-heavy goings on over at TNT.

The Daily Show: September 26, 2007

Jamie FoxxFirst of all, the Daily Show team must have been madly in love with that "translating gibberish" joke because that set up was way too elaborate, with very little pay-off. I'll just pretend they did it mainly as a segue to the UN Summit story. Yes. That's it.

"Showdown at the UN Corral": At the UN General Assembly, Bush and Iran's Ahmadinejad had a face-to-face showdown without actually coming face-to-face. Bush also seemed to get some, uh, interesting reactions from representatives from certain countries during his speech.

Foxx and Longoria, unpredictably close

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 21st 2006 8:11AM
eva longoriaThe other day I caught a glimpse of the video for Jamie Foxx's song "Unpredictable." The video was rather goofy in its attempt to be sexy, so I had to change the channel before I choked to death from laughing too hard. I didn't find out until later that Eva Longoria is in the video. If I had know I would have at least watched it with the mute button on.  Of course, now that she's starred in this "steamy" video and has been seen palling around with Foxx, most recently at the Golden Globes, rumors are abound that the two are an item, though they both claim the accusations are false. I personally don't believe they're an item at all. I think Longoria was hired to come to the set and watch over the team of twelve-year-old boys Foxx has hired to write lyrics for him like "I'll be yo Tylenol just take me till you doze off." As long as he pays them a living wage, I'm totally cool with it.
