Debra Messing - American Theatre Wing's 69th Annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall - Red Carpet Arrivals at Radio City Music hall, Tony Awards - New York City, New York, United States - Monday 8th June 2015
Stars from romantic comedy drama 'Undateable' and fire department drama 'Chicago Fire' we snapped on the red carpet as they arrived at Radio City Music Hall in New York for the 2015 NBC Upfront Presentation.
Reggie is 12-years-old and living in a sprawling New York property with his wealthy parents, though he rarely gets to spend any time with them. His company is mainly servants, nannies and other young adolescents at school, who he struggles to mix with due to his age-exceeding wisdom and passion for playing the cello. However, this startlingly intelligent young boy is about to meet 23-year-old Eleanor, who is equally struggling to get to grips with her life. Constantly hopping between odd jobs, never seeing her family and trapped in a relationship with a volatile slacker, she finds herself lucky enough to land a job as Reggie's nanny after a brief interview with his preoccupied mother. The pair hit it off immediately and, as their friendship grows, they start to teach other the most important things in life; dreams, love and family.

Debra Messing returns in 'Mysteries of Laura'
We lost Fox's 'Dads' yesterday, but now it's time to focus on the new shows picked up for the 2014-2015 reason and it look as though NBC has a few crackers in-store. The network green-lit a couple of big-hitters on Thursday (May 8, 2014) including the return of Debra Messing.
Debra Messing Will Star in 'Mysteries of Laura'
The former Will & Grace actress stars in Mysteries of Laura, a drama based on the Spanish show Los Misterios De Laura. She plays a homicide detective with a crazy personal life including a demanding husband (Josh Lucas) and twin sons.

Liza Minnelli, queen of Broadway and Cabaret, is set to reprise a musical role in the song-driven television show 'Smash', reports the LA Times.
The NBC show revolves around a group of characters in the milieu of theatre, creating new shows on NYC's infamous Broadway. The setting is perfect for Minnelli whose career is based on musical theatre and movies. Robert Greenblatt, the president of NBC Entertainment knows what an honour it is to work with the theatrical veteran. "I had the pleasure of working with Liza when we restored her landmark television special 'Liza With a Z' at Showtime, and to see her artistry up close and personal is a thing to behold." He said, "Liza Minnelli is the essence of a multi-talented, singular show business sensation, particularly for her extraordinary contributions to Broadway... So what could be more fitting than to have her legendary talent on a show that celebrates a world Liza has dazzled for decades?"
Minnelli will perform a duet of an original song alongside the show's character 'Tom', played by Christian Borle. Other names and faces that you may recognise from the show are Debra Messing (Will&Grace), Anjelica Huston (The Addams Family) and Jack Davenport (Pirates of the Caribbean). So far the show has had rave reviews, proving to be the 'Smash' that the title yearns for. Undoubtedly Liza will only add to its success.
For the Rodriguez family, this Christmas is more trying than others. Father Edy (Alfred Molina) is still trying to talk his way out of the doghouse with wife Anna (Elizabeth Peña). She's angry over a past infidelity and is hinting at a divorce. He's angry that their Iraq War veteran son Jesse (Freddy Rodriguez) doesn't want to take over the family business. Wannabe-actress daughter Roxanna (Vanessa Ferlito) is anxious over the possibility of landing a prime role in a television series, while ignoring the local boy Ozzy (Jay Hernandez) who clearly pines away for her. But the couple's biggest concern is Mauricio (John Leguizamo) and his non-Puerto Rican wife Sarah (Debra Messing). Their marriage has yet to produce grandchildren, and for Edy and Anna, family is everything.

Like Cukor's film, English's effort boasts an all-female cast that ranges from raging, single Manhattanites to pot-smoking, transplanted Angelenos to Connecticut-rich ladies who lunch. The latter would be Mary Haines (Ryan), a fashion designer who gets the axe from her father after expecting him to hand over the keys to the castle. Before Mary even finds out, her best friend Sylvia (Bening) receives drive-by gossip about Mary's husband's affair with a counter girl at Saks named (appropriately) Crystal (Mendes). Mary's mother (Candice Bergen) expected it, and her lesbian friend Alex (Pinkett-Smith) wants to convert her. Needless to say, she finds her way through the fog of familial uprooting and finds herself a better mother, friend, and daughter for it.

Completed in 2005, Lucky legendarily shuffled around Warner Bros.' release schedule (bad sign) before the studio dropped it on the summer's first massive weekend (good sign) where it could compete with Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 3 for an audience (suicidal sign). Watching it, you easily forget the picture's age and subsequent shelf life until Drew Barrymore's character -- an aw shucks rube from Northern California trying to make it as a lounge singer in Las Vegas -- tosses off a Dr. Laura Schlesinger reference. Hanson even opens with Bruce Springsteen's "Lucky Town," an old-school track off The Boss' similarly titled album that brought me back a few years, but which actually fits the story well.

In a small rural town where camping and hunting are daily parts of life, Boog (Martin Lawrence) has a damn good life...99 for a grizzly bear, that is. He does a show with his friend, park ranger Beth (Debra Messing), and has a nice little bed and three meals a day in her basement. Then one day, Boog frees a deer named Elliot (Ashton Kutcher) from the hood of dumb-as-brick hunter Shaw's (Gary Sinise) truck. Elliot considers this an act of eternal friendship and begins to follow Boog around everywhere, eventually causing Boog to lose his show with Beth. Without a home or means of livelihood, Boog is sent back to the forest with Elliot. Here, Boog must find his inner bear (did I just type that?) and Elliot must find the courage to stand up to head buck Ian (Patrick Warburton). All of this happens while the pair are also trying to find their way back home and attempting to not get killed by Shaw.
