kojak“Who loves ya, baby?” Universal Pictures has hired the writing team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade to script a movie version of Kojak. They wrote Skyfall, the current James Bond movie, as well as four previous Bond films.

Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in May 2009

June 7, 2009
Dom DeLuise and Linda DangcilSome more talented individuals left us this month. It's amazing how so many people have contributed so much to the medium of television. Some of the losses this month include Dom DeLuise (The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The New Candid Camera), Linda Dangcil (Dynasty, Quincy M.E., 3rd Rock From The Sun, and The Flying Nun), Frank Aletter (M*A*S*H, All In The Family, Dallas, Kojak, and Murder, She Wrote), Wayne Allwine (movies Splash, Three Men And A Baby, and Star Trek V: The Final Frontier and as the voice of Mickey Mouse), Michael Ross (All In The Family, The Jeffersons, and Three's Company), and veteran news producer Jack Reilly (The Mike Douglas Show, David Frost Show, Good Morning America, and Entertainment Tonight). Here are the details... Comedic actor Dom DeLuise passed away in his sleep on May 4th in Southern California. He was 75 years old. DeLuise was a staple of variety shows in the 1960s and hosted his own from 1983 until 1990. With his seemingly endless enthusiasm, DeLuise was also a frequent guest on talk shows like The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, a co-star in many Mel Brooks movies, and hosted The New Candid Camera in the 1990s. Frequent co-star and close friend Burt Reynolds told Entertainment Tonight, "I was dreading this moment... Dom always made everyone feel better when he was around. I never heard him say an unkind word about anyone. I will miss him very much."
