  • 22:20 - MOVIES: Jem And The Holograms - Pulled From All Theatres - Deemed The Worst Film Flop Since 2000
    In what can only be deemed “truly outrageous,” Universal Pictures’ movie rehash of ’80s cartoon Jem has already been pulled from theatres after a mere two-week run.

    Jem and the Holograms, a more saccharine and less punky version of the popular classic, pulled in a meagre $1.37 million (all figures USD) in its opening weekend.

    As a result, Universal has pulled the movie entirely from theatres, in what industry insiders are calling an unprecedented move.

  • 22:20 - Arrow - Season 4 - Brandon Routh EW Interview
    Thanks to Spindae2 for the heads up.

    “Ray is fighting for survival, desperately trying to get somebody to pay attention and trying to get Felicity to respond,” Routh tells EW. “Nobody understands and thinks he’s dead. It’s a complete S.O.S., with drastic measures that he’s unleashed — as much as he can do in his current situation. Damien’s motivation is to understand my technology, and then maybe when he finds out a connection, to bait whoever may be coming after me.”

    Despite being MIA for more than six months, Ray doesn’t harbor animosity toward Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) over her failure to find him sooner. “She didn’t even know the experiments that I was doing,” Routh says of Palmer’s miniaturization tests. “It’s safe to say that there’s no reason for anybody to suspect that he might still be alive.”

    ABC is is developing El Chiringuito De Pepe, a comedic one-hour based on the popular Spanish series. Written/executive produced by Don Todd (Samantha Who?) and executive produced by Jason Winer, the project has received a script commitment with penalty. 20th Century Fox TV, where Winer’s Small Dob Picture Co. is based, is the studio.

    The project is described as a faithful adaptation of Spain’s hit comedy-drama about family, love, culture and class.

  • 05:00 - Texas Soap - In Development at ABC Produced by Eva Longoria
    Writer-producer Nikki Toscano has set up an untitled project produced by Eva Longoria and her UnbeliEVAble Entertainment as well as Conde Nast Entertainment. Both shows come from Universal TV where Toscano has an overall deal.

    The ABC drama is a Texas-sized soap about an ambitious political family with differing agendas loosely inspired by a 2013 Vogue article Pair Of Aces, which profiled Democratic rising-star twins Julián Castro, mayor of San Antonio, and Joaquin, then-newly elected U.S. congressman. UnbeliEVAble and ABC first took a stab at developing a Texas political family drama using the article as source material last season with a different writer. Toscano is writing and will executive produce with UnveliEVAble’s Longoria and Ben Spector and Conde Nast’s Dawn Ostroff. This marks Toscano’s return to ABC where she worked on another primetime soap, Revenge.

  • 05:00 - The Clan Of The Cave Bear - Pilot - Not Moving Forward at Lifetime
    The Clan Of The Cave Bear will not be moving forward at Lifetime. I hear the cable network has passed on the fantasy drama pilot after not being able to reach an agreement with studio Fox 21 TV Studios over the size of a possible episodic order. I hear the network was looking to do The Clan Of The Cave Bear as a four-hour event series, a proposition that did not work for the studio for economic reasons as Fox 21 has been seeking a regular cable series order. In light of the impasse between the two sides, I hear Fox 21 already had been quietly shopping the project, receiving some preliminary interest.

    Husband-and-wife producing duo Adam and Naomi Scott have sold two comedy projects, one to HBO and one to NBC, through their Gettin’ Rad Productions. Both hail from Universal TV where Gettin’ Rad is under a first-look deal.

    HBO has bought Deep S.I.X. with Wet Hot American Summer scribe Anthony King attached to write. Deep S.I.X. follows a rag-tag Homeland security team that no one believes in as they investigate paranormal threats that no one believes in.

    NBC has put in development Donuthead, a single-camera comedy set in the world of an anxiety-ridden 11-year old boy and his single mother. The series, written by Irene Mecchi (Brave, The Lion King) and Bridget Terry will feature a unique visual style to illustrate this kid’s one-of-a-kind imagination.
