Fox’s Wednesday-night miniseries BH90210 is not precisely a reboot of that network’s BEVERLY HILLS 90210/90210, which ran from 1990 through 2000. Instead, BH90210 features seven of the original series’ stars – Gabrielle Carteris, Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garth, Brian Austin Greene, Jason Priestley, Tori Spelling, and Ian Ziering, all executive producers on the new show – as versions of themselves trying to get a remake of 90210 off the ground. Garth and Spelling spearheaded the move to get BH90210 going, but most of their colleagues enthusiastically came aboard. Holdout Doherty changed her mind and signed on after the unexpected death of […]Read On »

Discovery Channel’s new Sunday-night miniseries SERENGETI is unusual. This is not because it is set in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, Africa, which contains large populations of many of the continent’s most notable wildlife; the network has aired many documentaries made there. However, SERENGETI is not a documentary, but rather a drama, created by Simon Fuller and directed by award-winning wildlife documentarian John Downer, both of whom are producers on the miniseries. Downer shot footage of real Serengeti lions, elephants, hyenas, baboons and other animals going about their lives, which has been edited into a storyline, narrated in the […]Read On »

George Takei is proof that you can take the actor out of STAR TREK, but sometimes STAR TREK is still within the actor. Takei has been world-famous for over fifty years for his portrayal of Starfleet’s Lieutenant Hikaru Sulu on the original STAR TREK series. Sulu was eventually given command of his own vessel, The Excelsior, in the STAR TREK film franchise. Takei has long since added to his considerable legacy by becoming an author and an activist, working ceaselessly to educate people about the internment of Japanese-Americans by the U.S. government during World War II, as well as for […]Read On »
