The Sopranos – Nick D’Urso, the manager of New Jersey’s Satin Dolls (better known to HBO viewers as the Bada Bing!), has been holding off on performing renovations on the club. He told NorthJersey.com, “I got an inside tip that they’re going to do a [Sopranos] movie, so I don’t want to make any major changes. I’m not going to reveal my sources, but we got a call from somebody [working] on the script.” Sopranos creator David Chase was skeptical of the news while an HBO spokesperson gave a firm “no comment.”
The Pitts – Allison Janney (The West Wing) has been cast as mother Liz Pitt in FOX’s animated remake of The Pitts. The live-action sitcom about the world’s unluckiest family was cancelled in 2003 after a brief run. Dylan Baker (Drive) and Lizzy Caplan (The Class) have already signed on to reprise their roles from the original series as father Bob Pitt and daughter Faith. Andy Milonakis (The Andy Milonakis Show) has been cast as son Petey. If next week’s table read goes well, The Pitts will go straight to series.
