“This Is Us” is being shuffled back and forth and has been moved back to its original night. In movie news, Gabrielle Union and Will Packer are teaming up again for a new movie titled, Breaking In. More inside…
NBC is still trying to lock down its fall schedule. And one of your new favorite shows has been caught up in the shuffle.
A few weeks ago, we told you our latest obsession “This Is Us” would be returning on a new night for season two. But, that’s no longer the case. “This Is Us” has been moved BACK to airing on Tuesday nights, according to Variety. The show will be followed by “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.”
The hit family drama will now air nine to ten consecutive episodes, rather than being broken up by Thursday Night Football. A source close to the network told Variey it’s “vitally important” that the show airs on its original timeslot because moving it could be “disruptive” to fans who are accustomed to watching the series on Tuesday nights. Damn right!
Now we can watch the final season of “Scandal” in peace.
In fact, 20th Century Fox Television executives were concerned about the move to Thursdays as it would have been in direct competition with Shonda Rhimes’ TGIT block on ABC AND Thursday Night Football on CBS.
In movie news…
Reunited and we can't wait!
Actress Gabrielle Union and producer Will Packer, who worked together on Almost Christmas, are teaming up again for a new project.
The dynamic duo are working on a new film titled Breaking In where Gabby will star and work behind-the-scenes to produce. She did the same for Almost Christmas. She’s teaming up with Will along with James Lopez and Practical Picture’s Craig Perry and Sheila Taylor. This is the “Being Mary Jane” star’s fourth producing project.
According to Deadline, the upcoming project will follow a woman who fights to protect her loved ones during a home invasion. We predict Gabby will be playing the woman doing all the protecting.
James McTeigue will helm the film and the script is based on a screenplay by Ryan Engle. Production is set to start in July.
By the way, Season 3 of "Being Mary Jane" returns July 18th on BET. Will Packer's Girls Trip, starring Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith, hits theaters July 21st.
