Romancing the Stone
Get Billy Ocean on the horn! NBC is planning to adapt Romancing the Stone as a television series, Deadline reports.
The 1984 romantic comedy stars Kathleen Turner as romance novelist Joan Wilder, who travels to Colombia to save her kidnapped sister, with the help of con man/charmer Jack T. Colton (Michael Douglas). The box office smash, which launched Turner's career and is considered Douglas' comeback film, spawned an equally successful sequel, 1985's Jewel of the Nile — and two killer theme songs, Eddy Grant's funky original and Ocean's peppier follow-up.
George Lopez and Eva Longoria
Despite news of his TBS talk show's abrupt cancellation and her Desperate Housewives wrapping up after the upcoming season, there was a lot of laughter when George Lopez and Eva Longoria came together recently in a Hollywood warehouse. The two old amigos were shooting promos for their second go-round as co-hosts of the ALMA Awards, honoring the best in Latin music, film and television.
After taking a year off to retool, the ALMAs will air September 16 on NBC. I was the only print reporter invited to the shoot to talk to the pair about what we can expect from the show and how they're dealing with all the changes in their lives.
TV Guide Magazine: Eva, this will be your fifth year hosting the ALMAs. What's going to be different?

"The only thing harder than creating a hit show is knowing when to end it," Marc Cherry, creator of Desperate Housewives, told critics Sunday at ABC's fall previews.

Felicity Huffman, Desperate Housewives
When last seen on Desperate Housewives, Lynette Scavo (Felicity Huffman) was in the midst of another horrible night, though this was really worse than most. She and estranged husband Tom (Doug Savant) were putting on a happy front at a neighborhood dinner party that culminated with the Wisteria Lane ladies hiding a dead body in a trunk.
Felicity tells me that the September 25 season premiere will look a lot like the memorable 9 to 5 sequence when Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton comically conspired to hide a corpse, as Lynette, Susan (Teri Hatcher), Bree (Marcia Cross) and Gaby (Eva Longoria) come together to cover up Carlos' murder of Gaby's sexually abusive stepfather.
