Bon Jovi, the Beastie Boys, Neil Diamond, Alice Cooper, Donovan, Tom Waits and LL Cool J are among the 15 artists nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011. Also on the list: Chic, Dr. John, J. Geils Band, Darlene Love, Lauro Nyro, Donna Summer, Joe Tex and Chuck Willis.
CBS sitcom based on Bon Jovi’s Livin’ on a Prayer has been greenlit.
The Bays/Thomas multicamera comedy revolves around an unmarried couple, Tommy (Kyle Bornheimer) and Gina (Lindsay Sloane), who are in love, but Tommy has commitment issues. Gina is a waitress who fantasizes about running her own business. (via THR)
I’m surprised this wasn’t part of JBJ’s “Artist in Residence” program at NBC.
Is this a first? A sitcom based on a song? Better than a sitcom based on a Twitter account. Look at CBS, thinking outside of the box. ALSO Bays/Thomas created How I Met Your Mother. Down grade.
I heard Bright/Kaufman/Crane are going to do a sitcom based on “Scenes From An Italian Restaurant.” About separated, middle age couple Brenda and Eddie who own a pizza place.
