Alan Arkin"Whatever kind of role he plays – whether as a confused Russian in a cold-war comedy or stalking Audrey Hepburn in a thriller, Alan Arkin is always a joy to watch," said Osborne. "His career has spanned more than four decades, and he still continues to be one of the most interesting and creative actors working today. I very much look forward to sitting down with him and hearing about his life and his work on such classics as The Heart is a Lonely Hunter, Wait Until Dark, Catch-22 and The Russians are Coming, The Russians are Coming, as well as more recent successes like his Academy Award-winning performance in Little Miss Sunshine and his Oscar nominated performance in Argo. We'll also be talking about his award-winning theater career as both an actor and director and his equally successful career as an author. He is a remarkable, multi-faceted man, one who has always let his work speak for him. I'm particularly eager for this chance for all of us to better get to know Alan Arkin, the person and the artist."

Will and Sonny to marry on 'Days of our Lives'

Freddie Smith and Guy Wilson of Days of our LivesFrom Examiner: Will and Sonny to marry on 'Days of our Lives'

 "WilSon" fans rejoice! “Days of our Lives” is having a wedding next week when Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis invite you to join in their nuptials beginning April 1st through April 4th, weekdays on NBC. The network's longest running soap will make television history next week by airing the first gay marriage (between two men) in soap opera history!


The fan favorite couple, Will (Guy Wilson) and Sonny (Freddie Smith), will tie the knot in a beautiful ceremony presided by a surprise officiant. As “Days” fans remember, Will came out as gay in some of the show's most powerful episodes to date. Since their first meeting Will and his soul mate Sonny became one of the show's most popular super couples to root for, garnering the shipper name, "WilSon." The episodes promise lots of loving moments and surprises as they profess their love for one another.

“Will and Sonny have an ability to communicate on a level that is pretty impressive given how relationships fair in daytime drama,” Wilson said about the couple in an interview with Daytime TV Examiner earlier this month. “There's almost sort of an intuitive nature about them approaching it, In that sense for an actor, its exciting to get to work with another actor and breathe life into two characters that are so ready. To be vulnerable with one another, in my experience...in my opinion that's a rarity in daytime drama. That's a dynamic that's going to continue to evolve through thick and thin going forward, the strong sense of nonverbal intimacy between Sonny and Will.”
Days of our Lives” received their third GLAAD Award nomination for the story line earlier this year.
Catch the marriage of Will and Sonny next week on Days of our Lives” airing weekdays on NBC.

Wilson was a true television pioneer in his day and all-around comedian, hosting his hosted his own weekly variety series in the 70s called "The Flip Wilson Show." Only Carol Burnett with "The Carol Show would match the show's success. The series earned Wilson a Golden Globe and two Emmy Awards. In January 1972, Time magazine featured Wilson's image on their cover and named him "TV's first black superstar.

He was best known for his portrayals of such outrageous, over-the-top characters as the Reverend Leroy of the Church of What's Happening Now and Geraldine, the sassy but proud black woman whose flamboyance, enthusiasm and screeching, high-pitched voice were recognized by millions of Americans. Her trademark quips -- ''When you're hot, you're hot; when you're not, you're not,'' ''The devil made me do it'' and ''What you see is what you get'' -- became national catch phrases inserted into everyone's vocabulary in the 1970's, when Mr. Wilson's variety show became one of America's best-watched programs.

“BLACK BOX” – PREMIERES THURSDAY, APRIL 24

Catherine Black is a world-famous neurologist at the state-of-the-art medical institution known as “The Cube.” Catherine is brilliant, beautiful, and at the top of her game, though she’s hiding a secret of her own: she’s bipolar. Each week, the doctors on staff attempt to unravel the mysteries of the brain and are constantly challenged by cases never-before-seen on television. The medical stories are moving, bizarre and a visual feast. The personal stories are riveting. The patients have rare, highly visual, often hallucinogenic and startling conditions, which we’ll see through their eyes as Catherine diagnoses and treats them.
“Black Box” stars Kelly Reilly as Catherine Black, Ditch Davey as Dr. Ian Bickman, David Ajala as Will Van Renseller, Ali Wong as Dr. Lina Lark, Laura Fraser as Reagan Black, David Chisum as Joshua Black, Siobhan Williams as Esme Black with Terry Kinney as Dr. Owen Morely and Vanessa Redgrave as Dr. Hartramph.

Ilene Chaiken (“The L Word”), Amy Holden Jones, Bryan Singer (“House,” “X-Men”), Anne Thomopoulos (“Oz,” “From the Earth to the Moon”), Oly Obst, Gary Michael Walters (“Drive,” “Bobby”), David Lancaster (“Drive,” Broadway’s “The Bridges of Madison County”) and Michel Litvak are the executive producers. The series is a production of Bold Films Television.

“MOTIVE” – PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, MAY 21

“Motive” returns for an exciting second season with gripping new cases featuring more complicated killers and intricate crime scenes. Homicide detective Angie Flynn is as determined as ever, and her pursuit for justice never falters. Her partner, Detective Oscar Vega, continues to be her rock with his no-nonsense attitude and methodical approach. Detective Brian Lucas is no longer the rookie at the station, a role he’s happy to hand over to the very keen and ambitious Officer Wendy Sung. And confident and charismatic new Team Commander Sergeant Mark Cross shakes up the station when he joins the team. He and Angie share a mysterious and strained connection, one she would prefer to leave in the past. The tension leads to a breakdown in trust between Angie and Vega, and Angie realizes she must find a way to work with Cross, even if it means confronting the truth and the secret that drove them apart years ago.

 “MISTRESSES” – PREMIERES MONDAY, JUNE 2 

Based on the hit UK television series of the same name, “Mistresses” returns for a second season on the ABC Television Network. The provocative and thrilling drama will continue to focus on the scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends, each on their own path to self-discovery. When it comes to love, these friends find support and guidance with each other as they push the limits, test their boundaries and discover just how far they are prepared to go. They are willing to brave love’s turbulent journey, as well as its excitement, secrecy and betrayal, all the while bound by the complex relationships they’ve created.

“NY MED” – PREMIERES TUESDAY, JUNE 24

Fans of ABC’s widely acclaimed real life medical series can take heart. A fresh edition of the multi award-winning “NY Med” will air this summer after nearly two years of production. Expanding their scope, the producers offer a riveting tale of two cities. Each episode in this eight-part series toggles between the renowned surgeons of Manhattan’s New York Presbyterian Hospital and the gritty world of trauma surgeons at Newark’s University Hospital where the ER is a doorway to the mean streets of one of America’s most violent cities. Sometimes poignant and often uproarious, this limited series takes a deep dive into high stakes medicine through the eyes of unforgettable characters, including a hilarious trio of returning ER nurses who must cope with tricky personal crises while caring for some of the nation’s most bossy patients. Mehmet Oz rounds out the character roster with his extraordinary surgical skills on full display as his deft hands work to fix damaged hearts and save lives.
Terence Wrong is executive producer of “NY Med.”

“ROOKIE BLUE” – Premieres THURSDAY, JULY 17


In keeping with last season’s theme of ‘change’, 15 Division welcomes two new characters who shake up the familiar dynamic. Inspector John Jarvis (Oliver Becker, Rent-A-Goalie) strolls into 15 Division with a serious agenda. He wants the real story: is this a division full of heroes or a minefield full of screw-ups? Seamlessly flipping from pleasant to menacing, Inspector Jarvis is a political spin-master of epic proportions. He’s out to shake things up and make his mark. Also new to the team is 15 Division’s brand-new rookie, Duncan Moore aka “Selfie” (Matthew Owen Murray, Degrassi: The Next Generation). He is the very picture of a fresh-faced millennial: confident, eager to impress, and excellent at pointing out mistakes, particularly other people’s. But when Duncan struggles to fit into the group at 15, the officers soon have their hands full with this challenging and well-connected new recruit.
Andy McNally (Missy Peregrym), Dov Epstein (Gregory Smith), Sam Swarek (Ben Bass), Chris Diaz (Travis Milne), Traci Nash (Enuka Okuma), Gail Peck (Charlotte Sullivan), Nick Collins (Peter Mooney), Chloe Price (Priscilla Faia), Oliver Shaw (Matt Gordon), Marlo Cruz (Rachel Ancheril), Noelle Williams (Melanie Nicholls-King), Steve Peck (Adam MacDonald), and Holly Stewart (Aliyah O’Brien) all return for Season 5.

“RISING STAR” – PREMIERES SUNDAY, JUNE 22

ABC’s new reality series “Rising Star” completely reinvents the traditional singing competition as–for the first time ever–the audience has the final say in real time. The show follows a group of aspiring singers as they audition in live performances.  During the performances, viewers vote via an App in real time to determine if the singer will advance in the competition.  If the voting reaches a certain threshold, the performer moves on, and the performer can see how the voting is going during the performance, so the feedback is immediate and dramatic.

“Rising Star” is from Keshet DCP, the joint venture between Keshet International (KI), the global distribution and production arm of Keshet Media Group, and DC Media, the parent company of dick clark productions (dcp). Keshet DCP was formed to leverage Keshet’s globally successful unscripted business with DC Media’s expansive U.S. infrastructure and production expertise. The singing competition for ABC will mark the company’s first foray into the market since its formation in October. Ken Warwick (“American Idol”) and Nicolle Yaron (“The Voice”) are executive producing.

'Jeopardy' to fill the void of 'Katie' on most ABC stations

March 15, 2014

When "Katie" leaves the airways of ABC in June, most ABC stations are putting "Jeopardy" in its place. The long-running, Emmy winning game show will be shown in the daytime talkers timeslot in the four major markets of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Raleigh-Durham and New York.


Putting "Jeopardy" in the slot gives the network time to find a suitable replacement in its daytime programming  for much less than it cost to produce the show which is ending its two-year run in June.
