Been shooting #Jumanji for months now and I've been waiting patiently for this night to come… In the original movie, the world of #Jumanji came to us. Now 20yrs later in our continuation of the story, we go to the amazing and deadly world of #Jumanji. For months we've shot everything.. all the comedy, all the jungle action and all the heart. Finally, tonight – Saturday night – all night – I get to knuckle up with my stunt brothers and I get to beat some ass like a drum. My stunt brother here @taitfletcher is going night night. And when he wakes up, I'll be good as gone cause he can rearrange my face with one punch. Let's get it on boys and have some fun. #OnSet #KnuckleUp #BeatingAssesLikeDrums #BeenWaitingForMonths #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji #Tonights4YouAlanParrish💫
This bad man is an asshole and I must throw him thru this cement pillar. My hand strength is like vice grips… he has no choice. For the record, this man is roughly 6'8 and well over 350lbs – he's massive and mean – I must run away now to preserve my health. #OnSet #MySaturdayNights #KnuckleUp #StuntBrotherLuv #Jumanji
The CW is currently developing a dramedy titled REAL LOVE, from Faking It writer Stefanie Leder, Bull star Michael Weatherly and his Solar Drive Productions and CBS TV Studios.
Written by Leder, REAL LOVE is described as a whimsical romantic dramedy centering on a brilliant female programmer who writes the code for “the perfect boyfriend” but unexpectedly falls for her creation when he becomes self-aware. Leder and Weatherly will executive produce.
Real Love hails from CBS TV Studios and Weatherly’s Solar Drive Productions. Tiffany Grant of Solar Drive will co-executive produce.

E! is developing Swimming With Sharks, a series based on the 1994 feature Hollywood satire, which starred Kevin Spacey and Frank Whaley. Spacey will be executive producing the TV series, which is being written by actress-writer Kathleen Robertson. It is one of the two cable projects Robertson has in the works as a writer, along with the dramedy Your Time Is Up, which is set up at Lifetime, starring Christina Applegate. Both projects hail from Lionsgate TV.
Swimming With Sharks is expected to become a co-production with Universal Cable Productions and also a contemporary update on the original film which skewers and celebrates the Hollywood studio system. In the TV series, a young female assistant is at the center of a wildly competitive, struggling studio chock-full of manipulators and masters. Little do they know she is poised to outwit and outmaneuver them all. Robertson will write and executive produce with Spacey and his producing partner Dana Brunetti through their Trigger Street Productions banner.
Meanwhile, Your Time Is Up is described as a family saga in the vein of Six Feet Under and centers around a disheveled psychologist (Applegate). In an attempt to get her life back together after a family tragedy, she implements a unique approach to help her patients, insisted by her unconventional upbringing. Gil Netter will produce.
No plans yet for Robertson to act, but the consideration is a possibility. She was last seen playing the female lead on Stephen Bochco’s crime drama Murder in the First which recently wrapped its third and final season on TNT.
NBC is developing an hourlong legal drama co-starring and co-executive producing Sex and the City and White Collar star Willie Garson.

Garson is best known for playing Mozzie on USA Network’s hit drama White Collar and as Stanford Blatch on HBO’s hit comedy Sexy and the City. Currently, he recurs on CBS’s hit Hawaii Five-0. His upcoming features includes The Polka King and Feed.
This marks Feltes return to NBC where she served as a writer and consulting producer on another legal drama series, the network’s adaption of Josh Grisham’s The Firm.
