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]
