‘Trophy Wife' draws over 4 million premiere viewers, three more scripts ordered
By Eunice Moseley
"It's the complete opposite of a ‘trophy wife," laughs Malin Akerman, who plays
Kate the "trophy wife" on ABC's new comedy series "Trophy Wife," with Bradley Whitford (her husband)
and Michaela Watkins. "I'm part of a family that is mixed with steps - sister, brother, mom - my husband has
been married several times."
The premiere last month attracted 4.2 million, according to TheDisneyBlog.com,
with CinemaBlend.com reporting 4.3 million. Last week the network reported the new series is still bringing in 4.3
million viewers and has ordered three new scripts (without guarantee of pickup) at this point. That is a good sign
for the comedy series executive produced by Emily Halpen, Sarah Haskins and Lee Eisenberg.
"She is 20 years younger than her husband," said Lee about "Trophy Wife". "The title is meant
to be ironic...it's been the most fun ... to make her fall on her face and not look like it."
"Trophy Wife" is a creation of Sarah and Emily that is loosely based on Sarah's life.
"This show seems to fit well with ABC...I feel it's the right home for it," said Emily about the series.
"Trophy Wife" also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Bailee Madison, Ryan Scott Lee, Natalie
Morales and Albert Tsai. ABC's "Trophy Wife" airs on Tuesdays at 9:30pmET.
Bounce TV rolls out the red carpet
for Bentley Kyle Evans' two new comedy series
I was invited to an "exclusive sneak peek" at Bounce TV's two new original programming creations
of Bentley Kyle Evans. Evans is the creator and producer of such hit comedic series as "Martin Lawrence,"
"The Jamie Foxx Show" and "Love That Girl." His Bounce TV creations premiered on Bounce TV last
week - "BRKDWN" and "My Crazy Roommate."
During a sit-down interview
with the cast of "My Crazy Roommate" I realized that each of their personalities fit perfect with their
characters. The "My Crazy Roommate" cast included Laila Odom as roommate Brooke and Brittany Richards as
roommate Chloe. Gregg Wayans is Sloan and Hari Williams is Future, friends of the polar opposite roommates.
"It's loosely based on my life," said Bentley. "I would be a little bit of both."
Sloane's character is a friend of the roommates with a sought of attraction for one of them
which never really ‘seem' to develop. Future is a friend, with spoken-word skills, that works with one of the
Executive VP of Programming at Bounce TV, Billy Hall, was there to support the
launch of the series promising to not let it die in the rating war but to nurture it. The premiere of Bounce TV's
"My Crazy Roommate", according to BWWTVWorld.com, gave the two year old network's highest viewing audience
in its history.
Bounce TV's "My Crazy Roommate" airs on Tuesdays at 10:00 pm.
Vicki Yohe wants you to know worshipping
is free with new album release
Such an emotional and on fire singer Vicki Yohe is a powerful vocalist in the Gospel industry. In talking
with her about her newest album release "Free Worshipper: A Praise and Worship Experience" (Shanachie) she
was so in love with the power (and high) that you get when you give God the burdens.
This album is a testament
of that power that makes you feel uplifted to the utmost. The first single "I Know a Name" is a sweet song
of appreciation for that love and it's one of my favorite selections on the album. Yohe even broke out and started
singing the single to me with as much passion as if she was on stage before 1,000s.
Worshipper" was record live at Faithworld Church in Orlando, Florida with a five-piece band and produced by Kendall
Duffie and Ayron Lewis.
Vicki's first label was Giant Records in 1994 where she released three projects: "The
Mercy Seat," "Under the Blood," "Something About My Praise". In 2002 she signed to CeCe Winan's
Puresprings Gospel and her project's single, "Because of Who You Are," garnered a Dove Award and her 2005
release "He's Been Faithful" was nominated for a Stellar Award. Vicki released two albums on Aluminum Records
- "Christmas Present" and "Beyond the Stone".
Currently on Shanachie Entertainment
Yohe released a live project in 2009, "Reveal Your Glory," "I'm At Peace" in 2011 and this year
her current release "Free Worshipper."
Also a minister, who at age 19 was music
director at her family church in Baton Rouge, LA, Vicki Yohe's voice will keep you in "glass ½ full"
status. My favorites, aside from the single, is "Four Words," featuring the vocals of Clint Brown, for its
powerful and emotional appreciation the love and sacrifice Jesus gave; "God is Good," a great Contemporary
Gospel heart-felt testimony; "Waves of Glory," a powerful Praise & Worship song with an awesome choir
as the backdrop, with a sweet lead guitar support at the beginning, and "God Loves the Broken," a masterpiece
which belongs on the soundtrack to a dramatic film, I also love the violin support.
