Actor Jerry O'Connell is returning to CBS with an untitled parenting comedy from Jeff Astrof and author Adam Mansbach.
The story will center on a writer who unexpectedly becomes a parenting expert after his tongue-in-cheek book becomes a surprise hit. The show will be loosely based on Adam Mansbach's book, Go The F**k* to Sleep, which is described as a "bedtime book for parents." Jeff Astrof and Adam Mansbach will write the pilot script. Jerry O'Connell will also share a story credit for hatching the idea with Jeff Astrof and Adam Mansbach. Jerry O'Connell is a father of two-year-old twins himself, and had been searching for a comedy project like this, when he came across Adam Mansbach's book.Read More
Hey folks. Brian Gallagher here with a look at all the crazy news that wasn't exactly fit for print this week. We have a lot to get through this week so lets kick things off with several news items about 3D evil fishies.
The craziest movie of the summer, Piranha 3D, opened in theaters this weekend to some dissapointing box office numbers but the film was making plenty of waves last week before the film debuted. First, The Hollywood Reporter got a hold of a threatening letter from all-around jackass Joe Francis' legal counsel to The Weinstein Company. See, Jerry O'Connell plays a character named Derrick Jones, a soft-core pornographer who is loosely based on Francis and his Girls Gone Wild franchise (the film's version is Wild Wild Girls). It's rather humorous how they don't want the film "maligning" Francis... especially since Francis does a pretty good job of maligning himself on his own.Read More
