As the cameras continue rolling on the new moviemaking competition series On the Lot, executive-produced by Mark Burnett and Steven Spielberg, actress, author and screenwriter Carrie Fisher (Star Wars, Postcards From the Edge) and director/producer Garry Marshall (Georgia Rule) are confirmed as the series' two permanent judges after appearing as guest judges in the audition rounds. Director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) will join Fisher and Marshall as a guest judge on the competition's first "Film Premiere" and "Box Office" results shows. CNN Entertainment news anchor Adrianna Costa serves as the show host.
The special two-hour first "Film Premiere" episode, featuring comedic short films individually produced and directed by the 18 finalists, who are competing for a $1-million DreamWorks development deal, airs Monday, May 28 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. While the judges will give their personal critiques of the films, it will be up to the American public to determine the first finalists to be eliminated from the competition; voting results will be announced the following night on the expanded first "Box Office" results show Tuesday, May 29 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). On the Lot's weekly "Film Premiere" episodes air in their regular time period beginning Monday, June 4 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), and the weekly "Box Office" results shows will air on Tuesdays (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) starting Tuesday, June 5.
