‘Idol’s‘ Nigel Lythgoe to revive ‘Fame’
Nigel Lythgoe and MGM Television are prepared to re-imagine “Fame” for the small screen.
As music-themed series such as “Glee,” “Smash” and ABC’s upcoming “Nashville” continue to generate buzz, Mr. Lythgoe said he has high hopes for a reboot of the classic 1980 MGM film and follow-up TV series, which chronicled the lives of talented students paying their dues on the road to success.
Mr. Lythgoe, best known for his work on “American Idol” and “So You Think You Can Dance,” will serve as an executive producer. The project — which has yet to hire a writer, much less a cast — will be produced under the new MGM TV group banner.
“In my lifetime, I’ve discovered a great many incredibly talented individuals,” Mr. Lythgoe said. “Some have achieved stardom. Simultaneously, I’ve seen many dreams shattered, egos destroyed and lives changed forever. … I look forward to stripping away the glitter and glamour and revealing the true mixture of passion, humanity, exhaustion and sacrifice that these richly talented individuals endure on their road to fame.”
‘Walking Dead’ actor charged with driving drunk
An actor on the television show “The Walking Dead” has been charged with driving drunk in Georgia, where the show is filmed.
Peachtree City police arrested Scott Wilson at 2 a.m. Aug. 18 after someone called 911 to report a Chrysler PT Cruiser driving erratically.
On the AMC drama, Mr. Wilson, 70, plays a farmer and recovering alcoholic who is part of a band of survivors after a zombie apocalypse.
The arresting officer wrote in a report that Mr. Wilson said he had been drinking scotch and wine at a restaurant. The officer said Mr. Wilson was swaying and asked to do yoga poses instead of a field sobriety test.
It was not immediately clear whether Mr. Wilson had a lawyer. A message seeking comment from the network was not immediately returned.
