Tuning In to TV
Baltimore-filmed ‘Veep’ picked up by HBO
The show, planned to debut in fall 2012 features the “Seinfeld” and “New Adventures of Old Christine” star as a former senator who becomes vice president. The pilot was filmed in Baltimore as a stand-in for the District.
The Maryland Film Office estimated the pilot generated $6 million in economic impact for the state’s economy. The show could be a boon for the TV business in Baltimore after the end of “The Wire” in 2008.
Said Miss Louis-Dreyfus: “Although everyone says this is a comedy, I don’t think there is anything funny at all about me being a heartbeat away from the presidency.”
Beck leaving New York as well as Fox News
Glenn Beck is leaving Fox News — and the New York area, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
He announced in a live road show from Albany, N.Y., Saturday that he has sold his Connecticut mansion, which has been on the market for more than a year. He did not say where he would be moving, TVNewser reports.
As for his production company, Mercury Radio Arts, it’s going to develop a research department “that will utilize the idle brains that we have — retired CIA and military,” Mr. Beck told the audience.
“What you are about to see in a few months is a new way to communicate with each other,” Mr. Beck said, adding that he’s going to “build a way to deliver news directly to the youth of America.”
“The last thing I will be doing,” Mr. Beck said, “I will be leaving New York City. As we build a new media, I’m not building it in New York.”
TVNewser reports that Mercury Radio Arts’ more than 50 employees will continue to work out of a New York office.
Mr. Beck announced the end of his Fox News show earlier this month.
