Credit goes to Shannon Rose HollyWood for getting this published. The article quotes Dilee’s husband Jeffrey and Dilee says “Jeffrey who’s believed in me more than I have believed in myself and it quotes Bill Hare top, front and center thank you ever so much! You are a joy to work with! Heartfelt quote from Armand Hutton my soul brother from another mother thank you I’m so very blessed to have you and Bill on my team with many more songs to come! So appreciate the quote from Joanne Lazzaro on her flutes aiding in her own interpretation of my song “Twist Like a Dragon” co-written by Nel Gerome (he and I wrote all the album songs). Thank you Kori L Carothers for your quote as well you’re such a wonderful person and that means the most to me that everyone I worked with on this album is a good human being first and foremost. Millions have talent but without heart it is meaningless.” The article shines light on the two charities Dilee serves on the Board for and helps out with regularly:  She’s on the Board of Directors for www.drivehope.org and on Advisory Board for www.safepassagelives.org.

Usher portrays an FBI agent and a cyber expert, and the partnership with his father is an uneasy collision of old school meets new school. Producers are John Davis and Barris. New Line will have North American rights and Netflix will have international rights.

Democrats Warn FCC Chairman Against Waiving TV Ownership Cap – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


WASHINGTON — House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other congressional Democrats are warning FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and other commissioners against waiving the national TV ownership cap, as the agency considers the proposed merger of Sinclair Broadcast Group with Tribune Media and further relaxation of broadcast regulations.

Currently, a company cannot amass a group of stations that reach more than 39% of the country.

The rule regarding ownership, in place since 2004, is an issue in the Sinclair merger, as the combined company would reach 45.5% of the country, according to FCC filings.

“When each of you was sworn in as Commissioners, you swore to faithfully discharge the duties of your office,” Pelosi wrote in a letter, along with Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) and Rep. Mike Doyle (D-Pa.). “These obligations include enforcing the laws of the United States as passed by Congress.  The majority of the Commission correctly believes that Congress imposed a 39% national cap for broadcasters and that we did not create any loopholes around this cap.  To comply with your oath, you are required to order divestitures when necessary to stay within the restraints of the law.”

There has been speculation that the FCC will take up the ownership cap at its next meeting on Dec. 14, as Pai and other Republicans have taken aim at a series of broadcast ownership regulations they see as outdated.

The letter seemed to be aimed as much at the controversial merger of Sinclair-Tribune as it was meant to be a warning to Pai and other Republican commissioners that they lacked authority to raise or even eliminate the ownership cap.

In the letter, Pelosi, Pallone and Doyle also referred to comments made by Commissioner Michael O’Rielly, another Republican, on whether the FCC actually had the authority to modify the cap. O’Rielly last year said that he rejected the idea that the FCC could modify the national ownership rule “in any way,” as only Congress had the authority.

Fox Developing ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ Sequel ‘Death on the Nile’ – Variety – Sharing Variety Magazine


Twentieth Century Fox Film is working on a follow-up to “Murder on the Orient Express,” developing Agatha Christie’s “Death on the Nile.”

The studio has hired “Orient Express” screenwriter Michael Green to return for “Death on the Nile.” It has not yet signed a deal with Kenneth Branagh, but he is expected to return to the director’s chair and reprise his role of the mustachioed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot.

Murder on the Orient Express” has performed solidly at box office with $50 million domestically and another $100 million internationally. In addition to Branagh, producers were Ridley Scott, Mark Gordon, Simon Kinberg, Judy Hofflund, and Michael Schaefer. Executive producers were James Prichard and Hilary Strong of Agatha Christie Ltd. along with Aditya Sood and Matthew Jenkins.

Christie first published “Death on the Nile” in 1937, three years after her “Murder on the Orient Express” was published. The plot places Poirot on a vacation in Egypt, discovering a murder on the Nile River as a result of a love triangle gone bad. The book was adapted into a 1978 movie with Peter Ustinov as Poirot along with Bette Davis, Mia Farrow, Maggie Smith, Angela Lansbury, George Kennedy, Jane Birkin, Jack Warden, and David Niven.

The movie was not a hit, grossing $14 million. It won an Academy Award for best costume design.
