Fox Orders New Drama Starring Angela Bassett
Angela Bassett is coming to Fox. According to published reports, the American Horror Story actress will be teaming up with the show’s producers, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, for a new series titled 911. The as yet unannounced show will reportedly be unveiled at the network’s Upfront event next week and debut as a mid-season replacement in early 2018.
The Second Annual BET Honors were held last night in Washington DC at the Warner Theatre. This year’s show was hosted by actress Gabrielle Union and paid tribute to such luminaries as B. Smith, Mary J. Blige, Judith Jameson, and many others. The night’s biggest surprise guest however turned out to be singer Whitney Houston, who presented an award to actor/director Tyler Perry. Singers Monica and Keyshia Cole were also on hand to perform and pay tribute to Mary J. Blige.
