"Crazy Rich Asians" Begins Filming in Singapore and Malaysia

Filming Commences on “Crazy Rich Asians”
BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Filming began today on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Crazy Rich Asians,” based on the acclaimed worldwide bestseller by Kevin Kwan.

Jon M. Chu (“Now You See Me 2”) is directing the contemporary romantic comedy, which features an entirely Asian international cast. The film stars Constance Wu (“Fresh Off the Boat”); Henry Golding, making his feature film debut; Gemma Chan (“Humans”); Awkwafina (upcoming “Ocean’s 8,” “Neighbors 2”); and Michelle Yeoh (upcoming “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”).

Color Force’s Nina Jacobson (“The Hunger Games” films) and Brad Simpson (“World War Z”), and Ivanhoe’s John Penotti (“Hell or High Water”) are producing the film, with Tim Coddington, Robert Friedland and Kwan serving as executive producers.

“Crazy Rich Asians” follows native New Yorker Rachel Chu (Wu) as she accompanies her longtime boyfriend, Nick Young (Golding), to his best friend’s wedding in Singapore. Excited about visiting Asia for the first time but nervous about meeting Nick’s family, Rachel is unprepared to learn that Nick has neglected to mention a few key details about his life. It turns out that he is not only the scion of one of the country’s wealthiest families but also one of its most sought-after bachelors. Being on Nick’s arm puts a target on Rachel’s back, with jealous socialites and, worse, Nick’s own disapproving mother (Yeoh) taking aim. And it soon becomes clear that while money can’t buy love, it can definitely complicate things.

The film’s large ensemble cast also includes Chris Pang (“Marco Polo”), Sonoya Mizuno (“La La Land”), Jing Lusi (“Stan Lee’s Lucky Man”), and comedian Ronny Chieng (“The Daily Show”), as well as a number of Singaporean actors, including Pierre Png, Fiona Xie and Tan Kheng Hua.

The behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Vanja Cernjul (“Marco Polo”), production designer Nelson Coates (“Fifty Shades Darker”), costume designer Mary Vogt (“Kong: Skull Island”) and editor Myron Kerstein (“Going in Style”).

“Crazy Rich Asians” is being filmed entirely on location in Singapore and Malaysia.

The film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.

"LA 92" Documentary Gets Companion Pieces On NatGeo and on Facebook

National Geographic Announces Companion Pieces to Bookend April 30 Network Premiere of Los Angeles Riots Feature Documentary LA 92

Special Program, RIOT, and Facebook Live Aftershow Provide Firsthand Accounts of the Los Angeles Riots as Well as Examine the History and Future of Human Rights Protests

Civil Rights Lawyer Connie Rice, Former LAPD Detective Tom Lange and Former Los Angeles Time Columnist Sandy Banks Among RIOT Interviewees

Soledad O’Brien to Moderate LA 92 Facebook Live Aftershow

WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On the heels of the recent announcement that National Geographic Documentary Films’ television debut for LA 92 — an archival footage-focused look back at the controversial Rodney King trial and subsequent protests, violence and looting of Los Angeles — was set for Sunday, April 30, 2017 at 9/8c, National Geographic announced two companion pieces. RIOT, a one-hour special airing the day before LA 92 on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 9/8c, will provide firsthand accounts of the events in Los Angeles in April 1992 by those who lived it, helping also to shed light on the evolution and future of human protest. The LA 92 Facebook Live Aftershow, moderated by acclaimed journalist Soledad O’Brien and featuring key LA riot eyewitnesses, will take place Sunday, April 30, at 11/10c, on National Geographic Television’s Facebook page.

In 1992, Los Angeles erupted in turmoil. The frustration between African-American citizens and the Los Angeles Police Department reached a tipping point with the acquittal of four officers who had been caught on tape using what the public deemed excessive force. Riots that reflected this public outrage ensued. Although at their core these riots were a protest for equality, this meaning was lost in the destruction and chaos. RIOT will feature stories from and interviews with key eyewitnesses and spokespeople who can provide insight into the city’s race relations and how the city made it to the “point of no return”: from world-renowned graffiti artist Kelly Graval (aka RISK) and hip-hop star Rakaa from Dilated Peoples to former LAPD Detective Tom Lange, civil rights lawyer Connie Rice and LA Times columnist Sandy Banks.

Psychologist Abigail Marsh and sociologists Fran Buntman and Antwan Jones will use history and biology to examine why some people demonstrate their frustrations in the form of a riot while others use organized protest. With human rights issues consistently making headlines and social media giving every citizen public forums in which to share his or her opinions, these experts will attempt to answer the looming question: Are we on the precipice of more disastrous riots in the future?

Immediately following LA 92’s premiere, National Geographic will host a Facebook Live aftershow on National Geographic Channel’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/natgeotvUS). Moderated by O’Brien, the program will include such guests as Congresswoman Karen Ruth Bass of California’s 37th Congressional District; Najee Ali, director of Project Islamic Hope (a civil rights group based in south LA); Christafire Lundy, a resident of south LA; Hyepin Im, president & CEO of Faith and Community Empowerment; Karen Slade, Vice President/General Manager of KJLH Radio; and longtime Los Angeles journalist Bob Brill.

The Facebook Live will stream from multiple locations in south Los Angeles and Koreatown. Viewers will have the opportunity to engage in the discussion, ask questions of the panelists and comment in real time.

LA 92 is produced by Lightbox’s two-time Academy Award winner Simon Chinn (“Man on Wire”) and Emmy winner Jonathan Chinn (“American High”) with Academy Award-winning directors Dan Lindsay and TJ Martin (“Undefeated”), and featuring original music from Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans (“OA,” “Enemy”).

National Geographic Announces Second Season of "Genius"

National Geographic Announces Official Greenlight of Second Season of Scripted Anthology Series Genius

From Imagine Entertainment, Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Fox 21 Television Studios, Next Profiled Genius Will Be Revealed During Season One Finale on June 20

Showrunner/Executive Producer Ken Biller and Executive Producer Gigi Pritzker On Board for Season Two

WASHINGTON & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--National Geographic announced today the official greenlight of a second season of the scripted anthology series Genius, which tells the untold stories of the world’s most brilliant innovators. The announcement comes as the first season is set to premiere tonight.

Season two will chronicle the life of another renowned mastermind and tell the untold narrative of the person behind the genius. The identity of this virtuoso will be revealed during the season one finale of Genius on June 20.

“We are thrilled to bring back Genius for a second season and establish National Geographic’s presence in scripted television. The Genius franchise has proved to be the epitome of the premium, smart and highly entertaining content that our brand embodies and our audience craves,” said CEO of National Geographic Global Networks Courteney Monroe.

“Season one of Genius tells the fascinating backstory of the influential physicist Albert Einstein, and we are excited to delve into the life of another brilliant icon in season two, continuing our successful partnership with National Geographic and Fox 21 Television Studios,” said executive producer Ron Howard. “But we also love a little mystery, so the world will have to wait until our season one finale on June 20 to see our big unveil of the season two genius.”

“Our friends at Nat Geo have been spectacular partners, and we’re excited to continue the journey with them next season,” commented Bert Salke, President of Fox 21 Television Studios. “Ron, Brian and Ken are master storytellers who have outdone themselves on this first installment, and considering the stellar work of our cast led by Geoffrey, Johnny and Emily, the bar for the franchise has been set incredibly high. But it is also so rich with possibilities, that we can’t wait to get to work identifying and profiling our next genius.”

“Einstein is a project that we have a long history with. It took several years of development, while diligently working to find the right avenue to tell this story,” added Pritzker. “Einstein lived a large and vibrant life during a tumultuous time in history. To be able to dive in with 10 hours of programming allowed us to tell the story of the man with the depth it deserved. It was a joy and we are thrilled to be partnered with Imagine and Nat Geo, and we look forward to future seasons of this series.”

Season two will again hail from Fox 21 Television Studios, whose recent “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” dominated every awards contest and critics’ list; Imagine Television and executive producers Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, the team behind “24” and “Friday Night Lights”; OddLot Entertainment and executive producer Gigi Pritztker, which earlier this year produced the Academy Award-nominated film “Hell or High Water”; and show runner and executive producer Ken Biller. Also returning for season two are Sam Sokolow and Jeff Cooney from EUE/Sokolow as executive producers and co-executive producer Noah Pink.

Premiering Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 9/8c, the first season of Genius — based on Walter Isaacson’s book “Einstein: His Life and Universe” — reveals how Albert became Einstein, exploring his extraordinary professional achievements along with his volatile, passionate and complex personal relationships. Featuring Einstein’s lovers, enemies and fellow scientific luminaries, the all-star cast includes Geoffrey Rush (“The King’s Speech,” “Pirates of the Caribbean,” “Shine”) as the celebrated titular scientist, Johnny Flynn (“Clouds of Sils Maria,” “Song One,” “Lovesick”) as Einstein in the years before he rose to international acclaim and Emily Watson (“The Theory of Everything,” “The Book Thief”) as his second wife — and first cousin — Elsa Einstein.

Genius season one is executive produced by Imagine’s Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Francie Calfo, and co-produced by Anna Culp; showrunner, executive producer and writer is Ken Biller. From OddLot Entertainment, Gigi Pritzker and Rachel Shane are executive producers and Melissa Rucker is co-producer. Sam Sokolow and Jeff Cooney from EUE/Sokolow are also executive producers. Writer Noah Pink, who adapted the series for television, is co-executive producer. For National Geographic, Carolyn G. Bernstein is executive vice president and head of global scripted development and production. The series is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and Imagine Television.

BET Networks Says YES to Comedy Superstars and Music Legends with Original New Scripted, Late Night and Mini-Series

BET Networks Reigns as the #1 Cable Network for African American Viewers 18-49 for 16 Consecutive Years

BET Networks Prevails as a Top 20 Ad-Supported Cable Network among Coveted P18-49 Demo

With over 15 Billion Annual Social Impressions, BET Networks Boasts the #1 Most Socially Engaged Audience in Television in Its Competitive Set

BET Networks Teams with Twitter in First-Ever “Black Twitter” Impact Study

Companion Network, CENTRIC, is Refreshed to “BET Her” as the Premiere Destination for African American Women

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BET Networks announced today its upcoming 2017-2018 fiscal year programming slate at its annual Upfront presentation in New York. From comedy powerhouses Kevin Hart, Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, and Wanda Sykes, BET is bringing funny to the forefront with new original primetime and late night series. BET is also following up its smash hit and ratings juggernaut, “The New Edition Story,” with new biopics and documentary series based on the real-life intrigue of musical icons. From fresh new comedy and biting late night series, to culture-defining movies and returning network hits, BET is saying YES to indomitable talent and premium original programming.

BET Networks’ influence is ubiquitous, persisting as the #1 Cable Network for African American viewers 18-49 for 16 consecutive years. With a broad reach, BET also prevails as a Top 20 ad-supported Cable Network among the coveted P18-49 target demo.* The network debuted its refined positioning as the first and only network to always - and in all ways - showcase the power of black culture. BET is also continuing to tap into the power of African American women on its sister network, Centric, which is being refreshed to “BET Her.” Targeting AA Women 25-54, BET Her takes its rightful place within the BET family as it more closely aligns with the flagship brand. BET Her will invite viewers on a journey through music, culture, travel and lifestyle - everything that is important to “Her” being. The only network dedicated to African American women 24 hours a day, BET Her will officially launch on October 1, 2017. BET Her joins BET Jams, BET Soul and the flagship network, as BET Networks delivers more channels and premium original content to drive viewer engagement and amplify brand love.

BET is proud to hold the top spot with the most socially engaged audience in its competitive set. With over 15 billion annual social impressions, no one tweets, posts, snaps or Instagrams like the BET audience, which led all major cable networks for the second consecutive year.** BET Digital’s Snapchat Live Stories are among the industry leaders, garnering 22.5 million global unique users and 381 million global total Snap views for the combined 2016 “BET Awards,” BET Experience and “BET Hip Hop Awards.”

In addition to viewers, the New York Times hailed BET’s signature tentpole events as “the award shows that get it right.” Touted as “outstanding,” BET’s unrivaled awards shows define authenticity and excellence, claiming six of the top ten Cable Award Shows in CY 2016 among AA P18-49.***

“Over the last 37 years, BET has cultivated a deep and lasting relationship with our viewers, as we remain the premiere destination for lovers of African American culture. This year, we are saying yes to all things black, with more premium original programming and best-in-class tentpoles that reflect and invigorate our viewers,” said Debra Lee, Chairman and CEO, BET Networks. “BET’s global influence is stronger than ever and we are continuing to expand beyond the television screen to impact our audience – and the world – across multiple platforms.” Some networks offer reach and some engagement, but no other network offers reach, engagement, culture, lifestyle and influence.

BET SAYS YES TO BLACK IN JOINT TWITTER STUDY OF “BLACK TWITTER”:

As BET’s breakout biopic, “The New Edition Story,” soared to 29MM total viewers on television, it also lit social media on fire as “Black Twitter” drove global trending topics all three nights. Now, BET has joined forces with Twitter for the first-ever industry analysis of the overall impact and importance of “Black Twitter.” What is “Black Twitter”? It’s a digital water cooler where African Americans exchange ideas and opinions that are centered on the Black experience, all dialogue is unapologetically Black and is exclusive to things that impact the Black community. As evidenced by BET’s social domination, the network is a critical part of the “Black Twitter” conversation, and in turn drives mainstream culture.

The analysis includes a set of top Twitter hashtags, consisting of over 10MM Tweets and over 20MM Retweets since 2014. Early data continues to support a strong correlation between Tweeting and watching live TV at home via traditional delivery methods. People on Twitter see TV as a social opportunity and source of information for what's happening, best enjoyed live and viewed with others on Twitter. Twitter and BET will release findings in a joint session in June. As one of few brands that organically speaks to this phenomenon, BET will be creating a model to help predict future trends in “Black Twitter” as they emerge.

From unparalleled premium original programming to best-in-class tentpole specials, BET Networks is delivering more powerful content and influence in 2017-18 across more platforms than ever before. BET Networks highlighted the following programming at its annual Upfront presentation:

Hailed as the King of R&B, Bobby Brown is undisputedly one of the genre’s original “bad boys.” His hits may have kept him at the top of the charts, but his antics kept him on the front page.

Part true-crime murder mystery and part hip hop drama, this compelling docu-series will comb through mountains of misinformation, uncovering key evidence and witnesses who will reveal the truth about the bitter rivalries surrounding its legends. The limited series will also celebrate the groundbreaking music of Death Row, explain how it reflected society at the time, and how it influenced some of today’s biggest hip hop artists.

Archie Comics Returns to Classic Look with "Your Pal Archie"

Classic Archie is back with a twist: YOUR PAL ARCHIE launches in July from Parent, Templeton

Legendary artist celebrates 30 years with Archie by reinterpreting beloved look

Classic Archie is back with a fun twist in YOUR PAL ARCHIE, a new all-ages comic book series launching in July from artist Dan Parent and writer/inker Ty Templeton.

Parent, in his 30th year drawing Archie and the gang, continues his legendary run at the company with a tweak on the hugely popular Archie look, keeping his iconic style fresh and vibrant.

“I've been fortunate enough to be drawing in the classic style for so long, that I eventually formed my own style based on the Dan DeCarlo/Bob Montana model,” said series artist Dan Parent.

“In addition to drawing lots of classic Archie stories for the digests, I've been working on the digital first series LIFE WITH KEVIN, starring Kevin Keller. I had a feeling a classic monthly title might come back into the fold. So here it is!”

Parent’s artwork will be influenced from the styles and fashion of The CW’s hit new RIVERDALE TV series, but will remain familiar for fans of the classic style.

“The influence from the show is more of a fashion makeover for me. I've changed the hairstyles a bit, and the clothes. And the faces are a little more detailed, but the line work is still the simple classic lines I've always used.”

Comics mainstay Ty Templeton will be making his Archie Comics debut with YOUR PAL ARCHIE, joining Parent as the series writer and inker.

“This made me a hero to my children,” said Templeton. “I consider it an honor to write Archie’s latest adventures and a big responsibility that I take very seriously until I remember that it's my job to dump Archie in a bucket of squid now and then or it won't be fun.

Speaking of fun, I get to work with the legendary Dan Parent! He's given the characters a new updated look, but they still feel like group we've all grown up with. I could not be happier for this opportunity and I hope the fans are as happy with the result.”

Victor Gorelick, Archie Comics Co-President/Editor-in-Chief, will edit the new series. Gorelick, whose tenure at Archie Comics will hit 60 years toward the end of 2017, is excited to be working on the new series.

“Archie and I have been real close pals since October 6, 1958. That’s when I started working at Archie Comics. My goal is to make Archie your pal, too. Your Pal Archie will have stories filled with humor. The kind of stories that have, over the last 75 years, made Archie an American icon,” said Gorelick.

“I have two of the most talented people in the industry, Dan Parent, who has been writing and drawing Betty & Veronica, Archie and Jughead stories for almost 30 years and Ty Templeton, who is new to Archie. He’s a terrific writer and artist. I’m looking forward to working with him."

YOUR PAL ARCHIE launches on July 26 in comic book stores and digital platforms. Issues #1-5 will feature a special connecting variant cover by artist Les McClaine that forms a giant image of Pop’s Chock’lit Shop featuring Archie Comics’ most beloved characters!

CASTLE IN THE SKY PICTURE BOOK

The legends were true! Somewhere high in the clouds, human beings have again set foot on the floating island of Laputa, for centuries a peaceful, parklike ruin, tended only by its silent, faithful robots. But just behind Pazu and Sheeta are soldiers from the aerial dreadnought Goliath – who have captured Dola and her pirate crew, and are now looting the gold and jewels of the Castle in the Sky for themselves! But the man who guided them there, Muska, has his eyes on power, not money – and he alone knows how to activate the castle’s ancient superweapons that could make him master of the world! Can Pazu and Sheeta stop his sinister plan? Includes scene-by-scene illustrations and character dialogue from the film.

PRINCESS MONONOKE PICTURE BOOK
Debuts December 2017

Marked with the curse of a rampaging boar god, young Ashitaka sets off on a journey to cure his mysterious affliction. From behind the walls of an iron-mining town, Lady Eboshi arises to smash all obstacles to technological development.
