James Heerdegen, Christina Ricci
Christina Ricci married her longtime boyfriend, camera technician James Heerdegen,Saturday in New York City, People reports.
Imagine a world in which the NFL, the NBA and Major League Baseball all decided to move their seasons to the same time of year. It would be chaos, for fans and the professional sports business alike. And yet, in television, that's essentially what happens during pilot season.
The broadcast networks traditionally order pilots during the first few months of the year. From there, it's a race to find the best actors, hire a crew, build sets and produce a show before May, when the upcoming fall schedules are announced. The field has always been crowded, but this spring, several cable networks and online retailer-turned-programmer Amazon are also developing new shows that they hope will go to series (cable networks typically produce pilots throughout the year, usually avoiding the spring).

The broadcast networks are desperate for your attention. They know that you're overwhelmed with their programming and distracted by cable, the Internet and now even streaming services. Plus, they didn't produce a new major hit this season, and their ratings are suffering for it.
That's why this year's crop of nearly 100 series pilots at the five networks (48 comedy and 50 drama from the five networks) is all about being big: big stars, big producers, big concepts.

17. Craziest Crowd: This little British boy band called One Direction — perhaps you've heard of them? — appear on the Today show Tuesday in front of a record-breaking crowd to perform their hit "Live While We're Young" to throngs upon throngs of teenagers (and their very loving parents). Ironically, nobody can hear the performance they camped outside for four whole days to see over the cacophony of screams coming from the audience.

Expect to see more evil queens and disgruntled men on ABC.
The network announced full seasons of Happy Endings and freshman shows Once Upon a Time and Last Man Standing on Thursday. Five additional scripts for the '60s jet-setting period drama Pan Am have also been ordered.
For Pan Am star Christina Ricci, wearing the airline's iconic '60s flight attendant uniforms not only make her look the part, but also feel the part. And it all begins with squeezing into the historically accurate underwear.
"We have these undergarments that we wear, a girdle and a longline bra," Ricci told reporters in September. "The girdle keeps you from being able to do anything boyish like run or jump or take any large flights of stairs. The longline is a bra attached to a mini-corset so it basically makes you stand up really, really straight. ... You have to walk like a lady at all times, so immediately you're just put into this mindset of 'I'm a lady. I sit a certain way. I walk a certain way.'"
