Fox Makes Up With 50

Actress VIVICA A. FOX has put her bitter split from 50 CENT behind her - the pair was spotted chatting on the set of the video for his forthcoming single.
Fox enjoyed a brief romance with 50 Cent in 2003, but the In Da Club hitmaker dumped her during a radio interview when photos of the pair from a private shoot appeared on the cover of a magazine without his approval.
The Independence Day star publicly bashed her ex after they parted ways, branding his handling of the split "ghetto love".
But is seems all is forgiven - Fox was seen visiting the rapper on the set of the promo for new track Governors Island, according to the New York Post's gossip column PageSix.
A source tells the publication, "They were very cordial and friendly. I guess the animosity has faded."

So '24' Is Basically Coming Back, on Fox 4295968 News

Jack Bauer is coming back. Basically. At the 2014 Summer TCA Press Tour on Sunday, Peter Price, chairman and CEO of Fox Networks Group was quizzed on whether '24' could return for a new season - and it sounds like pretty good news.

Rice said he's "always been a fan" of the show and said he thought the comeback "was fantastic." However, he confirmed that the network hasn't "had a specific conversation about it coming back yet. I'm sure we will in the future. It's a wonderful franchise.

"Kiefer, Evan [Katz], Howard [Gordon] and Manny [Coto] did a great job this year," he continued. "When you look at the show itself, I think it has many more stories to tell, but I think we need to sit down and talk to the creators about it."

Elsewhere, Rice spent time speaking about Bones, highlighting its importance on the Fox schedule and noting, "I hope this year's not the last year. It's a fantastic series."

Rice was pretty open about American Idol's struggles, saying, "If I have a criticism of the show for us last year, we haven't found in the last two years a group of kids who have captured the imagination of the public. They've been really talented kids, but for whatever reason, there hasn't been that catalyst behind the show."

Would you like see '24' back for a tenth season or is it time for Jack Bauer to head off into retirement?

Fox's 'I Wanna Marry Harry', A Royal Fake Wants A Date, But Is This The Lowest of the Low? 4207009 News

Poor Prince Harry, he really must be having a hard time getting over his breakup from Cressida Bonas because he’s just turned up on an American dating show entitled, ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’. Hang on, Britain’s fourth in line to the throne, pimping himself out on a reality show? Sounds completely preposterous doesn't it? Well if only the 12 American girls we met on Fox’s ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ last night thought the same way.

Prince HarryThe REAL Prince Harry

‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ is a reality dating show made by Fox, where 12 American girls compete for the heart of Matthew Hicks, a red haired English gentleman who kind of, slightly, I guess maybe if you squint, but really not so much, resembles Prince Harry. He never says he is Prince Harry, of course, because well, he isn’t. But he never really says he’s not, leading the girls to put two and two together, get five and think they’re competing for a date with a real Prince.

Matthew is actually a 23 year old redhead who isn’t even remotely royal and actually can't afford a car at the minute. But the show’s producers have seemingly turned him into a Prince, with a crash course in how to be royal (‘Harry School’ it’s called) and by giving him suitably extravagant surroundings to impress the obviously very impressionable ladies.

More: The Prankster Prince: Funny things the REAL Harry has done

The group of 12 American women, which includes a preschool teacher and a pre-med student, have travelled all the way across the pond in order to find love with an eligible English bachelor. From the first episode, which featured Harry, sorry Matt, arriving in a helicopter, it seems the girls may just believe they have an actual prince on their hands. One lucky girl, Rose, was given the ‘key to the crown suite’ so she could spend more time alone with Matt, causing another to say, “‘I feel like Rose isn’t good enough for Prince Harry.” Maybe not, but Matt probably doesn't mind.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

The emotional core of the show, yes there is one, is once Matt chooses his lucky lady, can their love survive when she finds out he is not actually prince Harry. Can a girl love Matt just as Matt? Or will any hope of a fairytale ending be over once the girl realises she’s definitely not about to move into Buckingham Palace? Somehow we imagine Matt and whichever lucky lady he choses probably aren't going to one day be telling their grandkids of how they met on a reality show where he was impersonating Prince Harry.

More: Prince Harry grew tired of proposal speculation

Part dating show, part elaborate TV prank, some have called ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ the lowest of the low. After all, these girls are being made fools of, supposedly for our entertainment. Even if none of them were to believe that Matt actually is Prince Harry, the whole rouse is so stupid that no one can walk away from this one unscathed. But really is it any worse than any other show of it’s genre? No. It might be a little crueler, given that Matt isn't exactly being honest with the ladies, but it’s no more ridiculous than shows such as the 'Bachelor'. Come on, there’s even been shows where girls have competed for the heart of Poison’s Bret Michaels and Flavor Flav, now that’s low. Yes ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ is very fake but, news flash, all reality shows are. The good news is we might just have hit the bottom of the barrel which could mean an end to this whole genre. The bad news is, we'll have to suffer through ‘I Wanna Marry Harry’ first.

Fox Finally Cancels Seth Green's Offensively Bad Sitcom 'Dads' 4185157 News

Ah, the ruthless machine that is the U.S. television industry. It's ruthless, but it's fun to watch sometimes - especially when the executives get it so, so wrong. This week, Fox cut ties with several series that is desperately hoped would be the next Big Bang Theory, Breaking Bad, etc, etc. 

Seth GreenSeth Green's 'Dads' Has Been Cancelled

In fact, of the network's freshman comedies for 2013-2014, only the excellent Brooklyn Nine-Nine survived the cull. Gone is Enlisted. Gone is Surviving Jack. Gone is Greg Kinnear's Rake. Oh, and it's also good riddance to the relentlessly bad 'Dads', which starred Seth Green and Giovani Ribisi.

There had been some talk that 'Dads' might get a reprieve and from Fox's perspective, it wouldn't have been the worst idea. Despite being mauled by critics, it's performed well and even better than several of the renewed comedies and it comes from sister studio 20th TV, and producer Seth MacFarlane. 

More: Is offensive Dads the worst reviewed show of recent times?

Upon its debut, the half-hour comedy was dubbed racist and inappropriate and Fox president Kevin Reilly told press not to judge the show so early.

"The thing about 'Dads' that I really ask you to put in context. That's a pilot.You know the lineage of these writers. They come out of 'Family Guy.' They are the best writers. These guys are going to try to test a lot of boundaries. They are going to try to be equal-opportunity offenders."

The reviews were awful.

"What makes 'Dads' so deeply and fundamentally racist is that it is MacFarlane's entitlement fantasy, in which the only castmembers of color are women who exist to serve and service the spoiled little boys' club at the show's core," said the Wall Street Journal.

"The truth is, viewers who celebrate MacFarlane as well as those who revile him should be equally dismayed by 'Dads.' It's just a mediocre multi-camera sitcom, complete with formula humor and unearned laughtrack," said the Huffington Post.

"In the case of 'Dads,' the pilot is terrible ... Not only is the show not funny, it has heavily racist overtones for Asians ... There's a stink to it. It's multi-camera on a network that doesn't really do multi-cams. The laugh track is annoying," said the Hollywood Reporter.

So it's goodbye for Dads, but Fox has also passed on a couple of comedy pilots that it green-lit. The network has passed on Dead Boss, with Jane Krakowski and No Place Like Home, with Jane Kaczmarek. However, Fox is still in talks to pick up Sober Companion - an interesting looking Justin Long project, and Cabot College, with Margaret Cho.

Fox has already bulked out its drama offerings, ordering the excellent looking Batman prequel 'Gotham' as well as picking up hip-hop drama 'Empire'.

Major Broadcasters Try To Take Aereo Streamer Down 4164810 News

The Internet TV start-up Aereo is facing what the business’ founder Chaitanya "Chet" Kanojia calls “the end” should the supreme court side with the myriad broadcasting companies accusing him and his company of copyright infringement.

Aereo logo

The Aereo lets people stream and record on the Internet the over-the-air signals of local broadcasters via remotely stored antennas. Then, they can watch said content on loads of different devices, like televisions, tablets, phones or computers.

CBS and Fox, amongst others including NBC, ABC, Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, PBS and Tribune, argue that the cloud-based digital video recorder, that can hold up to 60 hours of content, violates copyright law. 

The broadcaster's main argument is that Aereo is essentially retransmitting their content for profit. And without seeking approval, the service alters the format for streaming. Aereo argues that its remote antenna and DVR is just part of evolution. 

"This case simply concerns the next technological step: allowing a consumer to access broadcast programming using an Internet-connected device coupled with a remotely located, individually assigned antenna and segregated video storage," Aereo said in its Supreme Court filing.

“A consumer using Aereo's system captures a signal through an antenna available only to a particular user and enables that user to make an individual copy from a unique data stream that can be viewed solely by that user at the user's direction. That technology does not cause infringement because Aereo does not engage in any performance 'to the public,'" Aereo told the Supreme Court.

Aereo

Kanojia has said that if Aereo loses, "it may mean the end of our company."  Of course, that’s exactly the kind of outcome Aereo’s detractors are looking for. "We believe that Aereo's business model, and similar offerings that operate on the same principle, are built on stealing the creative content of others," CBS said this year.

Fox Executive Fired For Raising Money for Malaysian Airlines Families 4161452 News

Fox has fired a veteran executive who used her company email account to ask for donations for loved ones of passengers on the missing Malaysian Airlines plane. Darlene Tipton emailed a woman whose boyfriend was aboard the plane to propose a fundraising effort, though company spokesman Scott Grogin said Mrs Tipton's "conduct and communications" violated company policy. Which is crazy.

New Girl FoxNew Girl Put Fox Back Into The Top Tier Of Television

Ms Tipton - who has been confirmed to have left the company - said her hopes to continue her drive for donations for the Malaysian airlines families, soliciting contributions through a fundraising website. She has held numerous senior positions at Fox, including vice-president of standards and practices for the Fox Cable Networks Group.

"We want to raise money for families, to give them immediate relief," Tipton said during a phone interview with the Huffington Post, from her Los Angeles home. "Otherwise, they could be in court for years."

"If they're getting money through contributions," she said, "it isn't right for them to seek money through legal channels, too."

Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 was a Boeing 777 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 people on board. The plane lost radio contact and disappeared, with searches still continuing. On Saturday, teams began searches of a patch of the Indian Ocean seabed.

Ms Tipton's husband, Ken Tipton, a writer and producer said his wife plans to sue Fox for wrongful termination.

U.S. late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel has vowed to never have actress Vivica A. Fox as a guest on his show again after he stirred up controversy between her and best friend, U.S. Tv personality Star Jones.

The comedian was a guest on late night chat show Watch What Happens Live on Sunday (09Mar14), and host Andy Cohen put Kimmel on the spot with a series of tough questions, including which celebrity he would never ask back.

At first, Kimmel was blanking on the actress' name, and said, "You know, it's funny because all the guests I would never invite back, would never come back in the first place."

And when host Cohen tried to help jog his memory by asking what (show) she was on, the Tv host quipped, "drugs."

Kimmel finally remembered the banned celebrity's name and revealed, "Vivica A . Fox was the guest. She may have been invited to Star Jones' wedding and I may have asked her if I could be the date to that wedding, and Star Jones may hate me and may have yelled at her and she may have been very angry when she (Fox) came back to our show."

The funnyman had long poked fun at Jones, making jokes about her weight issues and her marriage to investment banker Al Reynolds, from whom she divorced in 2008.

A year after Jones' 2004 wedding, at which Fox served as a bridesmaid, the Kill Bill star made her last appearance on Kimmel and was not pleased with the fact he continued his tirade of jokes at her pal's expense once she arrived on the stage.

Fox said, "We usually have really great comical moments, but that's my friend and I love her... It's not funny to me, so let's start over."

But things failed to improve when Kimmel suggested that he, Fox, Jones Reynolds and her husband get together, she responded, "You would get your a** kicked... I would have to take off my shoe and beat you down, brother!"

The interview ended shortly afterwards.

True Detective Fans: Cary Fukunaga Has a New Project On The Cards 4084417 News

Fans of HBO’s True Detective will want to pay attention, as the show’s director, Cary Fukunaga – who was in charge for all eight episodes of the Louisiana drama – is at the centre of a pitch for a feature that Fox has bought pre-emptively for “mid-six figures,” Deadline report.

True DetectiveWoody Harrelson [L] and Matthew McConuaghey [R] as Hart and Cohle in 'True Detective'

Fukunaga will direct the project as well as produce alongside Anonymous Content’s Michael Sugar - Fox’s Kira Goldberg and Emma Watts are point on the project, too. Here’s what we know: it’s untitled, set in a contemporary wartime context and is written by Nicole Riegel, who, like Fukunaga, emerged from the Sundance Labs program. That, alongside the fact that Fox went ahead and bought it quicksmart, is all we know.

5 Things You Didn't Know About True Detective

Despite information being scant, though, anticipation for this project will be high. Fukunaga is in high demand following his work on True Detective, which stars Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson as the troubled cop partnership: Rustin Cohle and Martin Hart. Minor spoilers… 6 episodes into its finite, 8-episode run, TD has wowed critics and fans alike, with Fukunaga being praised for that 6-minute tracking shot in particular. Cohle goes deep undercover to extract a key informant, and whilst in the middle of a raid he must transport the target amidst an all-out battle.

Warner Bros has also chosen Fukunaga to develop - as well as to direct and write - a new adaptation of Stephen King's It which will be split up into two films. He’s also been confirmed to direct a sci-fi feature called Spaceless, which, according to The Hollywood Reporter, tells the story of “an assassin who wakes up inside a spacesuit tumbling helplessly through space, with a computer designed to keep him company until his air runs out. He must try to solve the mystery of his death, which began when he broke into an orbiting space station to carry out a hit.”

Could Greg Kinnear's Drama 'Rake' Be The New 'House'? 4038843 News

Greg Kinnear plays a brilliant but flawed professional in Fox's new legal drama Rake, which is clearly the bones for any decent show ever made, ever. Brilliant but flawed works. It worked perfectly with Hugh Laurie and House, and that's what Fox appear to looking to replace with their latest effort.

Based on Peter Duncan's Australian show of the same name, Rake premiered in the U.S. on Thursday. It stars Kinnear as Keegan Deane, a brilliant attorney who can't keep his personal life on track. He's a gambling addict, a womanizer, an alcoholic.

"I felt like in terms of my interest in this particular role that it would be fun to play, something that could evolve and something that could be a good starting point on an onward journey," Kinnear told TheWrap, "I wanted to do it because of what I saw on the page."

So far, the critical reception has been positive, if a little reserved.

"The writing is smart and the episodes well structured, but much of the credit goes to Mr. Kinnear, who maintains a veneer of charm without stinting on his character's underlay of seedy desperation," said Alessandra Stanley of the New York Times.

David Wiegand of the San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "Kinnear is great in the role because he doesn't look like a loser--quite the opposite--and that's important.... Perhaps because this is the pilot, most of the episode is devoted to showing Keegan screwing up and only a few afterthought scenes focus on Torrant's case. In order to succeed from week to week, the series needs more than just a lot of figurative pratfalls."

"Kinnear's particularly comfortable, perhaps too comfortable.... Roy could've been a cartoon thug, but instead he's allowed to gratifyingly embody the demons that truly threaten to carry an addict away into a realm of chaos," said Chuck Bowen of Slant magazine.

Speaking with NTdaily.com about the similarities of himself and Roy, Kinnear explained, "We're both horrible gamblers.  The most obvious connection is that I have no skills in that department and he seems to be tortured by his own lack of ability as well."

Rake returns next Thursday on Fox, at 8pm.
