"Claire DeWitt and the Bohemian Highway" (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), by Sara Gran
Author Angela Wilder had sued CBS, Sony TV and Relativity Media among others in October alleging that her idea for a talk show based on motherhood was the real inspiration for CBS’ The Talk. CBS immediately refuted the claim, a seven-count suit in which Wilder said she never actually met with anyone from CBS TV Studios or RelativityReal, the producers of the daytime talk show starring Sara Gilbert, Sharon Osbourne, Sheryl Underwood, Aisha Tyler and Julie Chen. CBS has always said that The Talk is based on an idea by Gilbert. Said Sony today: “Ms. Wilder brought her case in good faith, but after seeing all of the evidence, she decided to voluntarily drop her lawsuit with prejudice. No payment is being made to Ms. Wilder.”
Here’s an enterprising awards campaign from the folks at Netflix during Emmy-voting crunch time. Or rather, lunch time. Today and Tuesday between 11 AM-3 PM, the network’s House Of Cards is slinging grub in LA from the Rollin’ Rib BBQ food truck (masquerading as Freddy’s BBQ, favored joint of Kevin Spacey’s Frank Underwood) free to card-carrying members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. Deadline hears that some Emmy voters even received home deliveries. “I appreciate your vote,” Underwood menaces from the truck’s FYC ad wrap. Ballots are due June 28. Will Academy members vote with their stomachs?
New Year's Eve has a popular setting at the movies, providing the backdrop for romance, drama, comedy, horror and more. There is something about ringing in the New Year that raises the stakes and sets the tone for life changing events, and it's against this setting that "Liars All," the feature debut of writer/director Brian Brightly plays out. Starring genre fave Sara Paxton ("The Innkeepers," "Shark Night 3D," "Last House On The Left") and "90210" stars Matt Lanter and Gillian Zinser, the thriller follows a group of young people who start playing a dangerous game on New Year's Eve that winds up with someone dead, and a killer on the loose. In this exclusive clip, we see the opening stages of the game and how just a slight bit of peer pressure already starts to push things into uncomfortable territory. "Liars All" will be available on demand starting June 21st. Watch below.
