Hagman, Turner, Shields go in for Nip/Tuck

Larry Hagman, Kathleen Turner, and Brooke Shields will guest-star on cable channel FX's Nip/Tuck next season.

Hagman will play the much older husband of a beautiful thirtysomething woman (Sanaa Lathan), who buys McNamara/Troy, the Miami-based plastic surgery practice of Dr. Sean McNamara (Dylan Walsh) and Dr. Christian Troy (Julian McMahon).

Turner will play Cindy Plumb, a scotch- and cigarette-voiced phone-sex operator who comes to McNamara/Troy to rejuvenate her voice through a vocal cord surgery.

Advertisers missing boat on baby boomers' bucks

By focusing their marketing muscle on teens and young adults, entertainment firms and advertisers are missing out on key opportunities to sell their wares to well-heeled baby boomers, an industry consultant said Monday.

Speaking at a breakfast sponsored by oldies cable channel TV Land, Ken Dychtwald said Americans aged 40 to 59 are the fastest-growing segment of the population. They also spend more than any other demographic on cars, vacations, airline fares, movie and theater tickets, computer hardware and software, and even DVD players and cell phone service.

"If we're going to create communications that tell everybody over the age of 35 they're failing, that they're not it, that they don't measure ...

Serenity Now-- It's TV.COM's rundown of television-to-movie conversions

The Dukes of Hazzard is the latest in a long and illustrious line of television shows that have been ported over to the big screen. Television shows being turned into movies used to be a novelty; now, it's a necessity. With spiraling budgets and jaded audiences, Hollywood is searching for surefire hits. Sometimes it works. Other times, it's The Mod Squad.

Cartoons from the 1980s are the "vein du jour" for filmmakers. Hong Kong action guru John Woo is prepping a megabudget He-Man starring Sex and the City's Jason Lewis as the blonde, leather-clad sword-wielder who's "got the power." Recently, N.E.R.D. front man Pharrell Williams announced he is producing and scoring a big-screen treatment of the pre-Power Rangers cartoon Voltron: Defender of the Universe. In the "you can't get any bigger than this" category, megamoguls Steven Spielberg and Michael Bay will ...
