DISNEY XD PICKS UP A SECOND SEASON OF HIT COMEDY SERIES “CRASH & BERNSTEIN”
Disney XD has ordered a second season of its hit comedy series “Crash & Bernstein,” a “bro-comedy” about an everyday kid and his surrogate brother, a funny and spontaneous puppet who has come to life, loudly. The announcement was made today by Adam Bonnett, Senior Vice President, Original Programming, Disney Channels Worldwide. “Crash & Bernstein” ranks among Disney XD’s most popular series in Total Viewers and across target kid and boy demographics. Production will resume in Van Nuys, California in July for a fall 2013 premiere.
In making the announcement, Bonnett said, “Disney XD continues to push creative boundaries for a sitcom and ‘Crash & Bernstein’ delivers on this promise week in, week out. Crash has quickly become an iconic character on the network, and we look forward to a second season of more purple attitude and disruptive fun with this talented cast and creative team.”
The filmmaking team behind 2011’s celebrated film “The Muppets” reunites as Disney’s “The Muppets … Again!” kicked off production last week in London. The all-new global Muppets adventure welcomes Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey to the mayhem, along with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Walter and rest of the Muppets. The film is directed by James Bobin (“Flight of the Conchords,” “Da Ali G Show”), who was just nominated for a BAFTA for “The Muppets” (Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer), and produced by the Academy Award®-nominated team of David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (“The Fighter,” “The Proposal”). With a screenplay by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller (“The Five-Year Engagement”), who is also executive producer with John Scotti, “The Muppets … Again!” will feature music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie (“Flight of the Conchords”), who won an Oscar® for best original song for “The Muppets” (“Man or Muppet”). The new film will hit the big screen March 21, 2014.
“It’s great to be back working with the Muppets,” said Bobin, “some of them even remember my name occasionally now. As for the movie, it’s a tip of the hat to the old-school crime capers of the ’60s, but featuring a frog, a pig, a bear and a dog—no panthers, even pink ones—along with the usual Muppet-y mix of mayhem, music and laughs.”
ABC has acquired the television rights to “BAD25,” a documentary film by the award-winning director Spike Lee. Airing at Thanksgiving, “BAD25″ shares fresh insights into the King of Pop’s creative vision that resulted in his landmark “BAD” album, this year marking its 25th anniversary.
“This will be a very special Thanksgiving for all families to enjoy the genius of Michael Jackson,” said Spike Lee. “Big thanks to ABC for allowing people to witness the making of Michael Jackson’s ‘BAD’ album. Shamon.”
Academy Award nominated filmmaker Spike Lee teamed with The Estate of Michael Jackson and Legacy/Epic Records, carefully culling The Estate’s archives for rare and never-before-seen footage for the film which focuses on the creative forces that pushed Jackson to make the “BAD” album and launch the BAD Worldwide Tour. “BAD25″ marks the first ever in-depth, behind-the-scenes film project to chronicle a Michael Jackson album and tour, and was filmed in advance of the 25th anniversary celebration of the iconic album, the record-breaking world tour and the groundbreaking short films that changed music history. The album’s 25th Anniversary will be celebrated on September 18, 2012 with the Legacy/Epic Records release of deluxe 25th Anniversary editions of the album.
