Celebs to Continue Slumming for Surprise CBS Hit


· CBS ordered another three episodes of I Get That a Lot, its surprise hit show in which Heidi Klum, Jessica Simpson and other celebrities fool regular folks by pretending to be average wage-slaves just like them. The new round of stars has yet to be announced, though expect Bret Michaels and his beaten face to warrant strong consideration as a suitably abused DMV clerk-for-a-day. [THR]

VH1 goes OCD, Roy Rogers returns and a new indie superpower emerges as Hollywood Ink continues after the jump.

· Tilda Swinton, Ben Silverman and veteran indie producer Ted Hope are a few of the heavy hitters behind DF Indie Studios, a new production and distribution entity planning an annual slate of films budgeted around $10 million each. No projects have yet been announced, but with one investor promising "an unlevered business model with 105% downside risk protection," it's hardly too early get! Excited! [indieWIRE]


· Can't get enough Roy Rogers? Oh. Well, 821 Entertainment is going ahead with a planned King of the Cowboys big-screen trilogy, animated TV series and interactive game anyway. [Variety]

· All the fun, glamour and drama of obsessive-compulsive disorder is coming to VH1 in an as-yet-untitled reality show. [Variety]

· Former GE kingpin Jack Welch will also soon have his own, slightly less-fancy advice show online, bringing his sage, cutthroat corporate acumen to MSN. [Variety]

    1. I thought Lindsay Lohan was doing a segment for the show when I found her working at a McDonalds. But it turned out that she just needed the work.
    2. It is too early to get excited.
    3. Wow, Roy Rogers' been dead for over 10 years, and he's still working, now that's a professional. If only some of today's actors had that sort of work ethic, instead of being lazy and lying around after they've died.
    4. Let me guess, the show will be sponsored by a hand-soap company.
    5. It was GE, not GM. Sorry to nit-pick.

  • Correcting obvious, absent-minded mistakes is hardly nitpicking, Furious. I regret the error.

    Please, hollywood, don't let Kid Rock be the new Roy Rogers?

  • Furious D says:

    Just trying to help in my own little way.
