And on a personal note …   Cannes is a beautiful city. At least my Cannes is – my limited “neighborhood” between various meeting places and my apartment. And it’s amazingly clean with streets swept nightly, trash picked up daily, etc. Of course all that cleanliness comes with a price. Somewhere around 6am each and every morning, the trash on my street is collected from the 3 hotels around my building. The large diesel garbage truck arrives, takes great pains to back up to each of the dumpsters, all the while making the universal “I’m backing up – watch out!” beeping noise trucks make whenever they back up. Then the large unoiled, metal-on-metal screeching arms are hydraulically flipped up and over the truck, lowered, aligned, more beeping, more aligning, until finally the arms find the slots on each side of the dumpster. Those arms, still unoiled by the way, painstakingly slowly lift, tilt, and shake repeatedly the dumpster before its finally lowered again, and the arms slid back out. The process begins anew for each of the five dumpsters on the block.  And watching from there perches are the truck’s fan club – a band of marauding seagulls cheering on the process.  There is little one could do about the seagulls, but you’d think in a country with such amazing food, wines, fashion, scenery, history … they could come up with a can of WD-40.


WE tv approved a reality show centering on Tammy Pescatelli, a married mom and comedian, reports THR. The docu-series with six one-hour episodes follows Pescatelli who moved away from L.A. where she had a comedy career to raise her family in Meadeville, PA. 2C Media and ITV Studios are producing and Pescatelli will also serve as executive producer. Production will begin in November and WE tv will likely debut the new show in January as part of a new comedy block along with the previously announced reality series helmed by Joan and Melissa Rivers.

Charles Dance landed a role in Syfy’s and Sky Movie HD’s four-hour miniseries, Neverland distributed by RHI Entertainment. Dance will play Dr. Richard Fludd, a 400-year old former alchemist to Queen Elizabeth who has the ability to transport people back to the their own time. Neverland is currently in production in Genoa, Italy and Dublin, Ireland and is scheduled to premiere next year. Parallel Films is producing for MNG Films in association with Syfy and Sky Movies HD.

Casting Call: A new reality series pilot titled The Pain Whisperer will be shooting in Los Angeles on December 4 and 5. If you live in the Los Angeles area or can be in LA during those days, and if you suffer from chronic pain, you may receive complimentary treatment from Tom Chi, known as The Pain Whisperer. The show is interested in people who may be scheduled for a hip or knee replacement, have carpal tunnel, joint pain/arthritis, repetitive stress injuries, failed back surgeries or any other debilitating pain. If this describes you, please make a 3-5 minute video explaining your situation and how pain has affected your life, family and work to be considered for this treatment.
