The Call Sheet sifts through the day's glut of Hollywood news to find the stories even non-industry types care about. Today: Jimmy Cameron's done it again, Bravo unveils even more new shows, and Ryan Seacrest's announcement is kinda boring.
Well, how about that. No one was really sure it could do it, but James Cameron's disaster film Titanic is on track to do quite well at the box office this weekend. Matinees of the 3D film sold surprisingly well today, so it's looking like the movie, which stars Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, could gross up to $30 million by Sunday. We might have a hit on our hands here, folks. Not a Lorax-sized hit, but a hit nonetheless. [Deadline]
You wanted new Bravo shows? You got new Bravo shows. But what's that? You insatiable monsters want more new Bravo shows? What do you think Bravo is, some kind of new show-making factory? Hm, what's that? Oh, it is? As a television network, that's what it does, make new shows? Oh, OK, my b. And hey, look, there are more new Bravo shows, recently unveiled during up fronts! These are all legit, and all have greenlights. There is a Top Chef spin-off which follows the chefs home and looks at their post-show lives. Mean Jen will be on that one, and Mean Jen is great! There's a show called Miss Advised featuring former New York blog gadabout Julia Allison, which is crazy that it's actually happening considering how long we've been hearing about it. There's a show about Real housewife Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant. Gallery Girls is about young gallery employees in New York City and actually sounds pretty interesting. Plus there are two scripted shows in the works, one of which is described as "a group of parents at an exclusive private school, with each episode centered around an extravagant and lavish birthday party." Which sounds very fun. So basically well done, Bravo! Bravo, Bravo! Haha. If loving Bravo shows is wrong, then just call us complete monster people. What can you do. [Entertainment Weekly]
