New York, NY – May 8, 2017 – Bravo Media is adding six new unscripted series to its development slate, it was announced today by Rachel Smith, Senior Vice President, Development. While the network recently announced six new greenlights that diversify across many genres, this move signifies the network’s commitment toward leading the industry in the high-end real estate space, building upon Emmy-nominated series like “Million Dollar Listing New York” and “Flipping Out.” In addition, the network is exploring several new formats to further expand its industry leading slate of established series with year-over-year growth.

“Bravo’s incredible equity in the high-end real estate space allows us to explore the biggest characters and most aspirational lifestyles, which are both key differentiators in this crowded landscape,” said Smith, “In addition, with a large stable of original series that continue to grow in the key demos, we’re able to take big swings in new spaces across many genres, and we’re excited to get these projects off the ground.”

Encore Presentation Will Air on Sister Network TCM

Following the 45th AFI Life Achievement Award Tribute to Diane Keaton on June 8 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, Turner’s TNT will televise the celebration as a one-hour special, AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton, premiering Thursday, June 15, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). Sister network Turner Classic Movies (TCM) will then encore the special on Monday, July 31, during a night of programming dedicated to Keaton’s work. This marks the fifth year the Emmy®-winning AFI special has aired on Turner networks.

In addition to the encore presentations of the special, TCM’s July 31 tribute to Keaton will include her Oscar®-nominated performance in Warren Beatty’s Reds (1981) and her comic turn in Woody Allen’s Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993).

The schedule is as follows:

TNT Premiere ­– Thursday, June 15
10 p.m. (ET/PT) – AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton

TCM Salutes Diane Keaton – July 31
8 p.m. (ET) – AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton
9:30 p.m. (ET) – Reds (1981)
1 a.m. (ET) – AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton
2:30 a.m. (ET) – Manhattan Murder Mystery (1993)
4:30 a.m. (ET) – AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Diane Keaton

Diane Keaton – multifaceted actor, director, producer, author, real estate developer and photographer – can boast more than 80 diverse credits across five decades. Her iconic roles span the cinematic spectrum, from long-suffering mob wife Kay Corleone in Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather (1972) to the “la-de-dah” heroine of Woody Allen’s Annie Hall (1977), a role which earned her an Academy Award® for Best Actress and turned her into a national fashion icon. Perhaps best known for her long comedic collaboration with Allen – including Play It Again, Sam (1972), Sleeper (1973), Love and Death (1975), Manhattan (1979) and more – she has proven herself equally adept at dramatic roles, with powerhouse performances in films such as Looking for Mr. Goodbar (1977), Reds (1981), The Little Drummer Girl (1984) and Marvin’s Room (1996). During th e 1980s, Keaton turned to directing – from feature narratives and documentaries to music videos and television. A perennial box office favorite, she has maintained her popular profile with films including Baby Boom (1987), Father of the Bride (1991) and Father of the Bride II (1995), The First Wives Club (1996), Something’s Gotta Give (2003), Morning Glory (2010), The Big Wedding (2013), And So It goes (2014) and Pixar’s Finding Dory (2016). She recently graced the small screen with her unique presence in the HBO miniseries The Young Pope and will next appear in the film Hampstead (2017), opposite Brendan Gleeson.


About the AFI Life Achievement Award

The highest honor given for a career in film, the AFI Life Achievement Award was established by the AFI Board of Trustees in 1973. It is presented to a single honoree each year based on the following criteria as mandated through a resolution passed by the AFI Board of Trustees:

“The recipient should be one whose talent has in a fundamental way advanced the film art; whose accomplishment has been acknowledged by scholars, critics, professional peers and the general public; and whose work has stood the test of time.”

In 2016, the 44th AFI Life Achievement Award Tribute brought together the entire entertainment industry to honor John Williams and his storied career as the composer behind many of the greatest films and television series of all time. AFI Life Achievement Award recipient Steven Spielberg (1995) presented the award, while J.J. Abrams, Drew Barrymore, Will Farrell, Kobe Bryant, Idina Menzel, Gustavo Dudamel, Bryce Dallas Howard, Peter Fonda, Deon Cole and many others, including past honorees Harrison Ford (2000), Tom Hanks (2002), and George Lucas (2005), paid tribute to Williams in an evening filled with laughter, memorable anecdotes and, most importantly, music.

“THE X-FILES” RETURNS TO FOX FOR 10-EPISODE SECOND INSTALLMENT OF EVENT SERIES

April 24, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

FOX has ordered a second chapter of THE X-FILES event series. The all-new 10-episode installment once again will be executive-produced by creator Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson returning in their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. The event series will air during the 2017-2018 season. Production is set to begin in summer 2017.

 

“Iconic characters, rich storytelling, bold creators – these are the hallmarks of great TV shows. And they are some of the reasons why THE X-FILES has had such a profound impact on millions of fans worldwide,” said David Madden, President, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Chris’ creativity, along with the brilliant work of David and Gillian, continue to propel this pop culture phenomenon, and we can’t wait to see what fresh mysteries Mulder and Scully uncover in this next chapter of THE X-FILES.”

 

In 2016, THE X-FILES drew an average Multi-Platform audience of nearly 16 million viewers and was last season’s No. 2 broadcast drama. It also was the season’s most talked-about event series on Twitter.

 

THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny) as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
Produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ten Thirteen Productions, THE X-FILES is created and executive-produced by Chris Carter.
