'THE DRESSER' BBC MOVIE
STARRING IAN MCKELLEN AND ANTHONY HOPKINS
Hallow's Eve is closing up and with it the airing date of BBC Two's new TV movie THE DRESSER with Ian McKellen and Anthony Hopkins, which will also air later at Starz! The two of them are working together for the first time in the movie based on the famous play which tells the story of one fateful night in a small regional theatre during World War Two as a troupe of touring actors stage a production of Shakespeare’s King Lear. Bombs are falling, the sirens are wailing, the curtain is up in an hour but the actor Sir who is playing Lear is nowhere to be seen. His dresser Norman must scramble to keep the production alive but will Sir turn up in time and if he does will he be able to perform that night? Emily Watson is also in the cast!

TELEVISION HEADLINES 
'BABY DADDY' GETS 20 EPISODES
ABC Family (which will be renamed into Freeform from January) has ordered ten more episodes of BABY DADDY rounding its upcoming fifth season with usual 20 episodes which means the popular sitcom with its almost 100 episodes is close to syndication! Starring Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Tahj Mowry, Chelsea Kane, Melissa Peterman and Derek Theler BABY DADDY was second most watched TV comedy this summer and the best watched on Wednesday nights!
NBC CUTS DOWN SITCOM ORDERS
But over at NBC things ain't looking so bright, because they've cut both Eva Longoria's HOT & BOTHERED sitcom and Ben Feldman's SUPERSTORE to 11 episodes being trimmed from the original 13 episode order for the upcoming mid/season comedies! It's due to the lack of space in NBC's new schedule.

'FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS' 
 TRAILER WITH RUSSELL CROWE, AMANDA SEYFRIED, AARON PAUL
And a new, gorgeous, trailer has been released for one of our most anticipated movie dramas this year FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS! When the past won't let you go, let love see you through... that is the main motto of deeply touching drama with Russell Crowe, Amanda Seyfried, Aaron Paul, Jane Fonda, Octavia Spencer and Diane Kruger. In it, Crowe plays a Pulitzer-winning writer who grapples with being a widower and father after a mental breakdown, while, 27 years later, his grown daughter struggles to forge connections of her own. The movie should arrive to theatres next month around Europe.

  1. "Fathers and Daughters" looks like a real three-hanky weeper, as they say.

    4. I'm glad he's alive, he's just one of those people if we were playing that game "Dead or Alive" I would be stumped if you asked me if he was dead or alive. ;)

    5. yep, there are people like that for me as well... I've thought for decades that Gene Wilder is dead, but he is, God bless him, very much alive. And before Peter O'Tool died last year there were of an on times when I thought he was dead :(

  2. You must be thrilled about another 20 on Baby Daddy :)

    Fathers and Daughters I've been waiting for since you first told us about it. I'm sure I better take off the mascara before watching that one!

    1. Yep, and I kinda like their new concept in which they release first ten in winter and then the other ten in spring/summer so you have a feeling they're with you all year long :)

      FATHERS AND DAUGHTERS still doesn't have a US distributor

    2. I like it spread out like that too. However, I usually wait for a series to end before starting to watch it, so I always feel like a show is with me for months at a time ;)
