Wanna Write For British “Skins”?

Are you a wannabe screenwriter between the ages of 16 and 22 in the U.K.? Good, well then we’ve got a gig for you. “Skins” is looking for writers of the young, cool, not-at-all-professionals variety. “We’re looking for someone to come and help us with the development and writing of ‘Skins’ series six,” writes the show’s co-creator, Jamie Brittain. “We’re a bit obsessed with finding new, young, exciting voices to help us write our show, so we thought we’d run a competition to find some. We’ve done stuff like this before and it’s worked out really well.” Keep reading »

“Jersey Shore” Cast Is Moving To Italy

Mamma mia! The cast of “Jersey Shore” is moving to Italy to film season four, presumably so Ronnie can see what the inside of an Italian jail looks like, too. Sources tell TMZ that MTV is already scouting locations in Italy and working to get cast members their visas. Apparently, a dinner with Vinny’s “authentic Italian relatives” is already lined up, too. Get President Obama on the line … this qualifies as an international emergency, right? [TMZ.com] Keep reading »

The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of January 24, 2011

You have plans this Saturday night. Yes, you do. At 9 p.m. on the 29th, you will be watching Tiffany and Debbie (fine, Deborah) Gibson in their SyFy movie, “Mega Python vs. Gatoroid.” And it should be either (a) awesome or (b) so bad it’s fun to play “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ along with. I’m betting on the second. But there are other exciting things happening on the small screen, too, as this week brings the return of many of our favorite shows. Find out what after the jump.

Girl Talk: Sex With A “Top Chef”

At the end of last year, I was in Los Angeles for a TV appearance that required me to be dressed up and in full makeup. That ended in the early afternoon, and I walked around downtown all glammed up, excited to have the rest of the day free. A guy complimented me, and I started talking, then flirting with him. He was cute and seemed smart, and I felt like I was already very far from my daily New York life, so I flirted back. And because it was 2010, that flirting soon took to our phones as we traded numbers, and then I started following him on Twitter, and he did the same to me. Keep reading »

Jason Priestley And Luke Perry, Together Again


Earlier this week, Jason Priestley and Luke Perry—aka Brandon Walsh and Dylan McKay of “Beverly Hills, 90210“—sat down with George Lopez. The two have teamed up for the first time in years for a Hallmark Movie Channel flick called “Goodnight for Justice,” in which Luke stars and Jason directs. But of course the two had to talk about life in America’s most famous zip code. “Back then, it wasn’t about poking people on Facebook,” said Jason. “You just had to poke them for real,” replies Luke.

“American Idol” Plays Nice, Turns On The Waterworks


Last night’s “American Idol” sure was a tearjerker, huh? While the first episode of “Idol” on Wednesday had a bunch of standout bad auditions, last night’s most memorable performances were all good. First up, my new spirit animal, Brett Loewenstern, a 16-year-old ginger hippie freak from Florida, who I loved instantly, even before hearing him sing, because of his look and his story. Maura over at Popdust writes in her recap of the show, “Brett’s whole audition arc, which felt like a prologue to an It Gets Better video, made it obvious that the show is taking an anti-bullying cue from its Fox sibling ‘Glee.’ … That ‘Be Nice’ would be more of an unofficial show motto in the absence of Simon Cowell was a given, but the idea that ‘American Idol,’ which has trafficked in raking in ratings for ridiculing the oddballs during its first nine seasons, would embrace the outcasts is definitely a sea change for the show’s overall tone.” Keep reading »
