Paramount Network picks up First Wives Club reboot as half-hour series
By Alakananda Bandyopadhyay · 19:51 PST, 3 Jun 2018
Paramount Network’s latest venture is in the form of a new comedy series, “First Wives Club” – 10 half-hour long episodes of which have been picked up from Paramount Television. The blockbuster hit film ‘Girls Trip’ writer, Tracy Oliver, is attached to write and serve as executive producer.
Based on the favorite 1996 film from Paramount Pictures, which featured Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn, the half-hour series resembles the movie in its setting, which is New York City. The plot revolves around a group of women who band together after their marriages fall apart, and who find strength in their sisterhood – and of course a little revenge.

So much of TV entertainment footage in the past has been wiped out, including ABC-TV’s Countdown and GTK. However the National Film & Sound Archive has started to put online footage from the daytime The Mike Walsh Show which ran in the 1970s and 1980s to a weekly audience of 5 million. Footage included Johnny Cash, Bette Midler, Village People and Queensland singing nun Sister Stansilaus Zgrajewski, whose debut appearance caused such a storm (a good one) that she was invited back the next day.

By Shannon Hames
October 3, 2017
When Out on Film released the roster for 2017’s festival, “Freak Show” was one of the films set to be screened at the festival on Oct. 5 at Landmark Midtown Art Cinema. This brilliant movie is about boldly confident, eccentric gay teen Billy Bloom, raised by a fabulous (although alcoholic mother) played by Bette Midler. Billy is forced to move to a “red state” to live with his Southern father in a small town where Christ is king and girls are homecoming queens — that is, until Billy decides to run.

She and her All Girl Productions partner Bonnie Bruckheimer are executive-producing a sitcom titled â€œThe Harlettesâ€ â€” which, of course, is the name of Betteâ€™s backup group. It will deal not only with the personal lives of the trio, but with their professional responsibilities and pressures working with a temperamental superstar. Guess who? You donâ€™t have to guess.

Kissy red lips practically pressed to the screen, body bent low in a puppy-dog grovel, celebrity interviewer Ruby Wax begs you not to
touch that remote.
â€œYouâ€™ll really like me in a few minutes,â€ she half-whines, half-wisecracks.
â€œThree minutes, max.â€ Yup, three minutes will be enough for you to decide whether â€œThe Ruby Wax Showâ€ (8:30 p.m. Mondays on Fox, atarting today) is your cup of whatever. By that time, Wax has already gushed over Pamela Anderson Leeâ€™s famous accessories, disparaged her own (â€œAfter you have children … your breasts will leave you and try to run awayâ€) and generally behaved like the woman your mother either warned you not to become or dreaded youâ€™d bring home, depending.
