Nellie Andreeva

EXCLUSIVE: Dreama Walker, who is recurring on the CBS drama The Good Wife, is set to star in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot Don’t Trust the Bitch in Apt. 23 (working title), which is directed by Jason Winer. The 20th TV-produced project, written by Nahnatchka Khan, centers on June (Walker), an  earnest, honest, optimistic girl from the heartland who, due to circumstances beyond her control, is forced to move in with Chloe, a sexy, unstable New York City party girl who has the morals of a pirate. Gersh-repped Walker, who plays Zach Florrick’s conniving ex-girlfriend Becca on The Good Wife, also recurred on Gossip Girl.

Meanwhile, veterans Rita Moreno and Robert Walden and Everybody Hates Chris alumna Tichina Arnold have joined TV Land’s comedy pilot Happily Divorced starring Fran Drescher as a woman who re-enters the dating scene after finding out her husband is gay. Moreno and Walden will play her parents, Arnold – her best friend.

Mike Sitrick, Shame On You…

sitrick.jpgI’ve known Mike Sitrick for a long time. He’s a PR maven who prides himself on being a family man. Which is why he should be filled with self-loathing for allowing his firm to promote a torture porn pic like Captivity, much less an even more disgusting premiere party whose selling point was its political incorrectness. (Let me make it perfectly clear: I support talent’s right to make the movie, just not business people profiting from it.) Sure, I received all those inane emails announcing the bash, and I did the right thing: I trashed them. Other journalists fell all over themselves covering the event so as to diss it: really, they’re lemmings hurling themselves off the cliff. There is only one way to stop the business of these torture porn movies: by shaming the people who receive money for releasing them, publicizing them, having anything to do with them. So, Mike, how could you? (And how could you, After Dark’s  Courtney Solomon and Allan Zeman?) Take that Captivity money and donate it to charity and pledge publicly right now you’ll never get involved with torture porn pics again. Until Mike does, I urge Hollywood and other companies to shun Sitrick and Company because there is such a thing as guilt by association.
