    “The Baby-Sitters Club” could be making a television comeback, according to multiple reports. >> Read more trending news Walden Media and producer Michael De Luca are shopping a modernized television series based on the wildly popular young adult books by Ann M. Martin, according to The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline Hollywood. The books sold more than 176 million copies between 1986 and 2000, and spawned both a movie and a TV show in the 1990s. The series followed a group of girlfriends as they tackled issues like sibling rivalry and divorce after starting a babysitting service in the fictional town of Stoneybrook, Connecticut. “We feel incredibly honored that Ann M. Martin has allowed us the chance to introduce the BSC to a new generation of future thought leaders and influencers,” Walden Media’s senior vice president of development and production, Naia Cucukov, said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. The entertainment news site reported that De Luca is slated to serve as an executive producer on the television series. Lucia Aniello, an executive producer of Comedy Central’s 'Broad City,” is in talks to direct the show, while Rachel Shukert, a writer and executive story editor on Netflix's 'GLOW,' is in talks to become the showrunner, according to The Hollywood Reporter. “As lifelong fans of ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’ and its enduring messages of entrepreneurialism, empowerment, diversity and most importantly, female friendships, we couldn’t be more thrilled to work on this special project with Rachel and Lucia,” Cucukov told the entertainment news site. The revival project will feature all of author Ann M. Martin’s original characters in half-hour episodes and focus on issues like racism, divorce and belonging, Deadline Hollywood reported. “The Baby-Sitters Club” spawned an HBO TV series in 1990. The series was adapted into a movie in 1995, starring Rachael Leigh Cook, Schuyler Fisk and Larisa Oleynik, among others.

  • Katie Couric shared her opinions about Matt Lauer's firing from the 'Today' show in an exclusive People interview published Saturday. Couric's opinion on the controversy was sought last month immediately after the bombshell sexual harassment and assault allegations against Lauer were made public, but at the time, Couric said that while the news was 'incredibly upsetting,' she wasn't ready to talk about it. >> Read more trending news  Couric, 61, and Lauer hosted the 'Today' show together for 15 years.  Couric told People that the allegations have been painful for her to learn, and that she had no idea such activity was going on during her 'Today' tenure. Couric said that she and Lauer had a 'brother-sister' relationship and that he treated her with respect. She also addressed a 2012 clip of her on Andy Cohen's late-night show when she said Lauer pinched her on the buttocks a lot. Couric told People the comment was a joke.

Truly, the Lord’s mercies are new every morning! Now, the journey has taken an exciting turn: We are expecting our first child!” They also shared a Bible verse (Psalm 139:13-14) to commemorate the occasion: 13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Jinger Vuolo, 24, and Jeremy Vuolo, 30, tied the knot in November 2016. The couple has been looking forward to having children for some time, and whether or not Jinger Vuolo was pregnant was a frequent topic on their show, “Counting On.” “I love kids,” Jeremy Vuolo told Us Weekly in 2016. “I really share Jinger’s love for children.” The couple’s child won’t be the only Duggar baby ushered in this year. Joy-Anna Duggar and her husband, Austin Forsyth, are also expecting their first child later this year. The Cox Media Group National Content Desk contributed to this report.
  • Nearly two decades after its series finale aired, talks are on for a possible revival of NBC’s hit show “Mad About You,” according to multiple reports. >> Read more trending news “Mad About You” followed the lives of newlyweds Paul Buchman, played by Paul Reiser, and Jamie Stemple Buchman, played by Helen Hunt, as they built a life together in New York City. Its seven seasons aired on NBC from 1992 to 1999 and earned a Golden Globe Award and a Peabody Award, among other accolades. Producers with Sony Pictures Television Studios have started informal talks with Reiser and Hunt about reviving the series for a limited run, television news site TV Line reported Tuesday, citing unidentified sources. The site reported that Reiser, who co-created the show with Danny Jacobson, has spearheaded the effort to bring the show back. Sources confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that Sony TV producers were eyeing a potential reboot of the series with Reiser and Hunt reprising their roles, although NBC was not expected to be involved in the revival. The series reboot would be set in the present day and follow the Buchmans as they deal with life after their daughter, Mabel, is accepted to college, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Reiser hinted at the possibility of another season of “Mad About You” in October, while promoting the second season of Netflix’s “Stranger Things.” He plays a doctor in the series. “If we can find the story to tell, and anybody’s interested, I’d be open to it,” Reiser said, according to People. “For years, I would’ve said, ‘Absolutely no. We never would do it,’ because I was very proud of how we ended it really well.” The series ended with a flash forward episode set 22 years in the future, an episode that will likely be set aside if “Mad About You” gets an eighth season. “Our thinking at the time was, ‘Let’s make sure we never get tempted to come back. Let’s tell them what happens,’” Reiser told People. “Now, because everybody’s talking about it, I started to think, ‘Maybe if there’s a story we could come up with. … To me, it’s interesting when I see my kids are growing and leaving the house. It’s like, ‘Oh.’ It’s like that moment when you get married. It’s like we’re in a new world that we don’t know the rules of.”

  • CBS is working on a reboot of its classic show “Magnum P.I.,” according to reports. >> Read more trending news The first eight seasons of the original series aired on CBS in the 1980s. The show starred Tom Selleck. The series reboot “follows Thomas Magnum (Selleck’s former role), a decorated ex-Navy SEAL who, upon returning home from Afghanistan, repurposes his military skills to become a private investigator. With help from fellow vets Theodore ‘TC’ Calvin and Orville ‘Rick’ Wright, as well as that of disavowed former MI:6 agent Juliet Higgins, Magnum takes on the cases no one else will, helping those who have no one else to turn to,” Variety magazine reported. The reboot has already been given a “pilot-production commitment” from the network, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It’s unclear whether Selleck will return for the reboot, but as he is currently under contract with CBS for the hit show “Blue Bloods,” it’s plausible that he could appear on the new “Magnum P.I.” The reboot comes after a recent attempt to revive the series flopped. Last year, ABC attempted to develop a sequel series, titled “Magnum,” which would have followed Magnum’s daughter who returns to Hawaii to take over her father’s P.I. firm. However, the show did not move beyond the development stage. The Cox Media Group National Content Desk contributed to this report.

Brown has been a staple on the Food Network for years on shows such as “Iron Chef America” and “Cutthroat Kitchen.” Lucky Yates, a regular character on the original “Good Eats,” said that he’s “absolutely thrilled to don the ol’ Dungeon Master’s robe again.”
