TV Lands First Wive’s Club TV Series Out, Paramount Network First Wive’s Club TV Series In

The Wrap
Paramount Network to Adapt ‘First Wives’ Club Into TV Series
Carli Velocci | October 2, 2017 @ 12:16 PM

2017-09-20_3-09-12

Paramount Network announced Monday that it’s developing a new half-hour series based on the 1996 film “First Wives Club.”

Tracy Oliver, who most recently co-wrote the screenplay for the adult comedy summer hit “Girls Trip” is attached to the project. She became the first African-American woman to write a movie that grossed over $100 million domestically.

The series will have roughly the same plot as the film, which starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn as a trio of recently-divorced women who seek revenge on their husbands, who left them for younger women. In the meantime, the group also bonds together and finds strength to move forward thanks to their sisterhood. Read More

It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself.

It’s best not to be too pompous about yourself. It’s better not to need a limousine for your head. Although people think I’m just ‘divine,’ I have my share of worries. I worry about growing old and losing my shape, my looks, my hair. As an entertainer, that’s my stock and trade. Oh, and I also worry that I don’t dance as well as Michael Jackson. – Bette Midler

Freak Show: Trudie Styler shares first look at her directorial debut with Bette Midler

Freak Show: Trudie Styler shares first look at her directorial debut
By JOE MCGOVERN

First, let’s talk about the title. Freak Show is not about a traveling carnival or people living under the stairs. It’s the name of the 2007 YA novel by James St. James (Party Monster), which has now been turned into a feature film by actress and longtime producer Trudie Styler (Moon, Still Alice, American Honey).

“The title speaks to what a freak really is,” Styler tells EW. “All teenagers are freaks inside. Indeed, all of us have an inner freak flag to fly. If we cant be ourselves on the outside, we are being ourselves somewhere inside. And that’s what the film focuses on.” Read More

Riverdale

John L. Goldwater, the late Jewish creator of “Archie and Pals,” might have raised an eyebrow had he seen the trailer for the new dark and sexy television reboot of his beloved comic book series. On January 26, The CW is bringing back the whole gang, only this time it’s a live-action drama with a whole lot more mystery, and some very steamy teenage romance. Riverdale has never been more intriguing. Read More

Bette Midler can be aeen on the small screen in the HBO concert special ‘Diva Las Vegas‘ by anyone with cable TV – except her 10-year-old daughter Sophie.

The singer-actress maintains a strict TV ban at home, she says in the Jan. 25 TV Guide.

“I won’t allow It,” Midler said. “I made a pact with myself a long time ago. Never watch anything stupider than you. It’s helped me a lot.”

‘Diva Las Vegas,’ which premiered on HBO Saturday, isn’t the only TV show about her mom that little Sophie seems destined to miss. Midler, 50, has a movie musical project in the works for NBC. Read More
