Well after yesterday’s momentous news, here’s a short silly item from the Daily Mail that for all we know was made up:
Helen says I don’t
Curvaceous Helen McCrory may have to delay walking down the aisle with handsome Old Etonian and Forsyte Saga star Damian Lewis.
For less than a year after giving birth to their daughter Manon, the actress is pregnant again.
The new arrival in October has upset plans for a summer wedding. Helen, 38, who played Cherie Blair in the film The Queen, once said she would rather be “skinny and drunk” than “fat and sober” on her wedding day.
“They haven’t sent out wedding invitations yet because they are still deciding whether to postpone it until after the baby is born,” says a friend of the couple, who have moved into a five-bedroom house in North London to accommodate their growing family.
It’s official: NBC has picked up Life! ➡
Damian should be at Rockefeller Center on Monday when NBC officially unveils its fall prime-time line-up!
» The Hollywood Reporter “NBC picks up four dramas; ‘Friday’ back”
» New York Times “NBC Orders Five Dramas for Next Season”
So what does this mean? NBC has made an initial commitment to 13 episodes. However if ratings are not good, they can cut it and based on the production contract, film only 6 episodes, for instance. If it does well in its time period, the “back 9” will be picked up by mid-November to complete a full season of 22 episodes. Now if it doesn’t do so well, but it gets good critical acclaim and NBC believes in it, it has a chance of still staying on the schedule like the drama Friday Night Lights did this year. More details should come Monday, but assuming it’s a fall show, shooting should start in early to mid-August (unless there’s a writers strike).
