"THE WALL"
From executive producer and NBA superstar LeBron James comes the second season of "The Wall," the fastest and simplest game with more than $12 million on the line every night - and up to $3 million on a single heart-stopping drop. At four-stories high, "The Wall" was built for one purpose - to change peoples' lives. With tremendous cash prizes waiting at the bottom, this game can change lives in an instant. Hosted and executive produced by actor, comedian, author and TV personality Chris Hardwick, "The Wall" offers a pair of teammates life-altering cash prizes. The rules are simple: Get a question correct and a green ball will fall down the wall and add the value of the slot to the players' winning total. Miss a question and an ominous red ball with fall and deduct the value from the teams' total. Teammates have to work together to build a huge cash prize. Last season "The Wall" ranked as television's #1 primetime game show, averaging a 1.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 6.2 million viewers in "live plus seven day" Nielsens. "The Wall" is a collaboration between SpringHill Entertainment and Glassman Media with LeBron James, Chris Hardwick, Maverick Carter and Andrew Glassman serving as executive producers. "The Wall" was developed by Glassman Media in conjunction with CORE Media and produced in association with Universal Television Alternative Studio.

"BETTER LATE THAN NEVER"
NBC's hit series "Better Late Than Never" is back for season two with more fun, comedy and adventure as the five globe-trotting stars - Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and comedian Jeff Dye - set off on a wildly entertaining journey to Europe and North Africa. The five friends will immerse themselves in the culture, customs and traditions of each new destination - all the while dealing with the unexpected twists and frequently hilarious turns that any trip presents. Last year "Better Late Than Never" scored as the #1 new summer broadcast series in both adults 18-49 and total viewers, with an average 2.0 rating in 18-49 and 8.9 million persons in "live plus seven day" Nielsens. The series ran undefeated in both 18-49 and total viewers in its Tuesday 10 p.m. timeslot versus the hour's ABC and CBS competition. Henry Winkler, Craig Zadan & Neil Meron, Jason Ehrlich, Lisa Higgins, Alex Katz, Tina Bachmann, Tim Crescenti and Chul Yeon Kim are the executive producers. "Better Late Than Never" is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio in association with Storyline Entertainment, Small World IFT and CJ E&M.

"ELLEN'S GAME OF GAMES"
Multi-award winning television host, producer, writer, actress and entertainment powerhouse Ellen DeGeneres brings her hilarious, high-energy comedy to primetime with NBC's newest reality competition show, "Ellen's Game of Games." DeGeneres serves as host and executive producer of the hourlong comedy game show, which includes supersized versions of the most popular and action-packed games from her award-winning daytime talk show, "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." Contestants, who are pulled right from the audience, will have to maneuver massive obstacles, answer questions under crushing time pressure and face gigantic plunges into the unknown - all in a quest to win a big cash prize. Every episode will feature DeGeneres' one-of-a-kind comedy and irrepressible personality, along with a unique roster of games, including "Blindfolded Musical Chairs," "Dizzy Dash" and "Scary Go Round." The thrill of the pressure cooker situations and the instant wins will keep audiences on the edge of their seats. At the start, contestants play games over four rounds. The winner of each round advances to play "Know or Go." The person who wins advances to the final round to play an epic game of "Hot Hands," where they will have to guess as many answers as they can in a designated amount of time. "Ellen's Game of Games" is executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, Kevin A. Leman II, Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin, Andy Lassner and Jeff Kleeman. David A. Hurwitz also serves as executive producer.

'Coco' is a must see

November 26, 2017

Aspiring musician Miguel, confronted with his family's ancestral ban on music, enters the Land of the Dead to find his great-great-grandfather, a legendary singer.

Over the course of one night during Dia de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead) is a Mexican holiday where the living celebrate their ancestors.
Coco is the story of Miguel, a young boy eager to follow his passion for music in a family that—puzzlingly—has banned music for several generations. The title refers to Miguel’s great-grandmother Mamá Coco, whose father is key to the anti-music mystery. This tale unfolds in an unspecified Mexican town on the eve of El Día de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) as the entire community is preparing to honor their departed loved ones. Miguel finds himself transported to the place of the dead just as the dead are making their way to the land of the living to be with their family and friends. Adventures ensue as this living boy tries to navigate the land of the dead, a visually vibrant and whimsically reimagined illustration of this traditional realm.

Theatergoers will find Coco to be a powerfully communicated story about the importance of family, community, a sense of belonging, tradition and remembrance.

The titled movie "Coco" reports the story of a Mexican child who wanted to be a musician, but because of family tradition it was prohibited to be a musician. Therefore, the child decides to play his guitar in a talent contest undercover of its relatives to demonstrate to the world the great musician he was. For his luck, the day of the contest was the same day of the Day of the Dead and he had to spend the whole day along with his family to celebrate it. While they all were in the cemetery remembering their family, the child decides to escape to find an instrument to play in the contest so he decides to steal a guitar from one of the biggest musicians and most successful one of the Mexican history who had already died. At the moment of stealing it from him, he appears in the world of the dead persons and he can only escape with the blessing of a relative and accepting the requisites that the relative proposes to him. After accepting, it begins the passage of the boy to look for a relative who offers him its blessing along with the permission of being able to become a musician.

'The Bachelor: Countdown to Arie' Special annouced

Get ready  Bachelor Nation! ABC is giving you a look at new Bachelor, Arie Luyendyk Jr., and the women who will vie for his heart in the upcoming special "The Bachelor: Countdown to Arie," airing Monday, December 11 at 10:00 p.m. EST on ABC. Chris Harrison hosts the one-hour special preview where viewers will catch up with their favorite couples and for the first time get an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at Arie Luyendyk Jr.'s life, his family and his love of racing.

The 22nd season of "The Bachelor" premieres January 1 at 8:00 p.m. EST on ABC. Relive Arie's journey to find love with one of America's favorite Bachelorettes, Emily Maynard (now Emily Maynard Johnson). Five years ago, Arie fell madly in love with Emily and was ready to get down on one knee to propose when his heart was broken. Relive one of the most heart-wrenching breakups in Bachelor history and discover how Arie finally got closure.

Arie's father, two-time Indianapolis 500 Champion, Arie Luyendyk Sr., will weigh in on his son's decision to find love again as the Bachelor. Arie admits that Emily was his last true love, and he will share why it has been so difficult for him to fall that completely in love again. His friends and family offer their insight into why they believe the second time around will be totally different.
"The Kissing Bandit," as Arie was known during Emily's season, showcased his legendary technique, but not every Bachelor's kiss is as sweet. The "Worst Kisses in Bachelor History" will be featured.

Check in with the most popular Bachelor and Bachelorette couples for the latest on their love stories. What have Rachel Lindsay and her fiancé, Bryan Abasolo, been up to in Dallas? Evan and Carly Bass, who met, fell in love and got married on "Bachelor in Paradise," are eager to share exciting news about the upcoming birth of their baby. Fan favorites Sean and Catherine Lowe also have an update on their growing family. Finally, new parents Jade and Tanner Tolbert will introduce their baby girl to Bachelor Nation.

A special sneak peek at the women who hope to capture Arie's attention and his final rose will be presented, as well as an exclusive preview of this season's romance, tears and dreams of true love as Arie takes the wheel to start the journey to find his soul mate.
