How to Live to 100 Greenlit to Series

Categories: News, Opinion

I generally don't publish a whole lot of television news. Never, actually. It's a rat race to cover everything. So I tend to skip it all together. The company I work for doesn't believe food shows are worth covering in their news department. I, on the other hand, feel that someone needs to cover it and get the word out there. Last winter Cooking Channel aired a special called How to Live to 100. It was a cooking show hosted by Detroit-born chef, ... Read More

Categories: News

Sci-Fi Channel has announced that they will be cancelling the hit series Stargate Atlantis at the end of the fifth season. It's one example of how a show's budget has just gotten too out of control. Factor in the production costs (Canada is no longer a cheap place to film these days), actor salaries, etc and it's just too much. But there is some good news from all of this. There will be a two-hour movie to follow the conclusion ... Read More
