Marvel comics legend Stan Lee is developing an animated series for MTV starring jailed hotel heiress Paris Hilton, the New York Daily News reports.

A separate source directly involved with the project likened it to the “Stripperella” cartoon developed by Mr. Lee in 2003 for Pamela Anderson, the newspaper said.

‘Dance Party’ up for Emmy

“Dance Party: The Teenarama Story,” a riveting account of the local dance program that showcased scores of area teens as they bopped and shimmied their way through the 1960s and early 1970s on the old Channel 14 (WOOK-TV), will vie for Emmy gold during tomorrow’s Capital Emmy Awards ceremony at the Ritz Carlton in Northwest.

The program — produced by WHUT’s (Channel 32) Beverly Lindsay-Johnson and Herb Grimes (with narration by Motown legend Martha Reeves) — will face “Through Our Eyes,” a documentary about the accomplishments of the District’s Latino community since the 1970s, for the top prize in the cultural documentary category.

Weekend highlights

Tonight: “Daytime Emmy Awards” (9 p.m., CBS): Sentimental accolades are likely to come to “The Price Is Right” host Bob Barker as he exits the show after a 35-year run. However, the night’s real drama may come when former “The View” co-hosts Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O’Donnell meet face to face for the first time since their big on-air blowout last month on the ABC chat fest. The dueling duo — along with “View” co-hosts Joy Behar and Barbara Walters — are nominated for outstanding talk-show host.

Tomorrow: “Confessions of a Matchmaker” (10 p.m., A&E;): Patti Novak, a professional matchmaker, has been warming up the lonely hearts of Buffalo, N.Y. — a city with one of the highest populations of singles per capita — with her no-nonsense style of tough love, A&E; says. Now she’s letting cameras into her sessions and on dates with her clients, sharing the secrets of her success with the world. Maybe it’s just what you need — especially if you’re at home and dateless again on a Saturday night.

Sunday: “Bridezillas” (10 p.m., WE): Hormones rage and tempers flare as the cameras capture frenzied brides-to-be at their worst while preparing for their big day.
