Halle Berry Will Executive Produce ‘Boomerang’ TV Series With Lena Waithe

It's been 26 years since "Boomerang" wowed moviegoers... It’s been more than two decades since Eddie Murphy brought the story of Marcus Graham, a handsome, high-powered marketing executive to life in Boomerang. After BET announced it was adapting the 1992 hit comedy for the small screen, now we know Boomerang star Halle Berry will partner with Lena Waithe to executive produce the series. “I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trail blazer in her own right,” Berry said in a statement. “I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen.” Waithe, who made history as the first Black woman to win an Emmy Award for comedy writing, will pen the pilot episode with writer and producer Ben Cory Jones, who will also serve as Boomerang’s showrunner. While many may be weary about yet another reboot, Waithe assured fans that she’s not trying to simply recreate the magic of the original film, but rather tell a modern story based on a film many of us love. “This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story,” Waithe explained. “There’s no point in trying to remake a classic,” she continued. “It can’t be done. So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!” According to Deadline, the show will center on the children of the film’s main characters — Marcus (Murphy), Angela (Berry), and Jacqueline (Robin Givens) — and will premiere on BET in early 2019.

Bill Cosby Begs Wife: Get Me Out of Prison Before I Die In Here!

As you've likely heard by now, Bill Cosby was sentenced to 3-10 years in prison yesterday after being convicted of sexually assaulting Andrea Constand... The disgraced comedy legend was handcuffed and taken into custody shortly after the judge delivered his sentence. It's been less than 24 hours since he was imprisoned, but already, Cosby's booking photo has become a viral sensation, and reports about his first day behind bars are being gleefully shared on every social media platform. (A report from TMZ that Cosby's first meal will include Jell-O has proven particularly popular.) Naturally, Cosby took advantage of his first opportunity to place a phone call, and insiders confirm that he contacted his wife of 54 years, Camille Cosby. Now, a new report Radar Online claims that Cosby spent most of his time on the phone imploring Camille to do everything in her power to get him out of jail. "They took my cane, tie and shoelaces because they think I will harm myself,” Cosby reportedly told his wife. A witness who listened in on the call, says Cosby complained about the conditions and led his wife to believe he was in immediate physical danger: "He said he had a stale hotdog bun thrown at him and he fell down a few steps because he wasn’t being guided,” the source recalls. “He told Camille, ‘Grab the checkbook and hire anyone and everyone’ who could get him out as soon as possible." Obviously, as a lifelong serial rapist, Cosby is deserving of absolutely zero sympathy. But if the idea of a mostly-blind 81-year-old grandfather living out what might be his final years in state prison strikes you as tragically pathetic, fear not. Life is easier for rich people everywhere -- including prison. Cosby will likely serve his sentence in a relatively cushy facility for "low risk" inmates, and a team of lawyers will descend on the place every time a guard so much as looks at him askance. Fortunately, his treasured "legacy" has been thoroughly decimated, and Cosby's many victims can hopefully rest easier knowing justice has somewhat been served. And with any luck, Camille Cosby will soon see the value in being free of her monstrous husband.

Meek Mill Says Jay-Z Quietly Spent Millions On His Legal Fees

After spending five months in prison for a controversial probation violation, Philadelphia rapper Meek Mill has spent the past two weeks getting his head together and speaking out about the injustices in the criminal justice system... So far he’s been on a media blitz, sitting down with NBC’s Lester Holt, veteran broadcaster, Angie Martinez, CNN, CBS This Morning, and now New York’s popular morning show, The Breakfast Club. During his Breakfast Club interview, Meek said that he feels a responsibility to speak out about the inequalities in the justice system because of the support he received throughout his ordeal. “I’m just reaching back the same way people supported me,” he said. “I know a lot of people were supporters of my music, but when it came to real life...people standing outside in the rain, protesting and actually being a part of helping me get back on these streets, I felt like I’m entitled to give back.”   Throughout his imprisonment, one of Meek Mill’s biggest supporters was rapper Jay-Z. While Meek is signed to Jay-Z’s artist management company, Roc Nation, Jay-Z’s support extended beyond exclaiming, “Free Meek!” in the media. Jay not only wrote a passionate op-ed for The New York Times about Mill’s unjust imprisonment but, according to the Philly rapper, Jigga also spent millions of dollars helping him get free. “JAY-Z is actually responsible for some of my legal fees, which I thought was the dopest in the world because it was some millions of dollars. I don’t even think I could have afforded it,” Mill admitted, though he said he was still able to take care of his family while he was locked up. Jay wasn’t the only one in the Carter household supporting Meek’s cause, Beyonce was also on board. On DJ Khaled’s song, “Top Off,” she shouted out the rapper. Meek Mill Says He’s grateful For the Support Jay Z & Beyonce Showed Him When He was Locked Up.  “I played that joint back. I was like ‘I know Beyoncé ain’t say no sh-t like this out of her mouth.’ I had to play it back again,” he said. “Then I heard her say ‘I’m in the hood screaming Free Meek’ ... That’s mega support—from Beyoncé and Jay-Z—because they don’t have to say it. You know Beyoncé ain’t shoutin’ no n----s out in jail.” As Meek readjusts to life on the outside and eases back into music, he also said he won’t forget about the people who are incarcerated who do not have the means to get out. Instead, he’s going to partner with some of his powerful new friends to advocate for those behind the wall. “I’m trying to use my platform and my voice,” he explained. “We’re in the process of starting an organization now. It’s going to be big.”

A 29-year-old man saved numerous lives during Tennessee Waffle House shooting.

Shaw Jr. said he was grazed by a bullet, treated for a minor gunshot wound and released from the hospital later in the morning... “I don’t know if it has hit me yet as far as witnessing other people dying,” Shaw Jr. said. “It's kind of, it shouldn’t have happened. When I was in the ambulance to hospital I kept thinking that I’m going to wake up and it’s not going to be real. It is something out a movie. I’m OK though, but I hate that it happened.” The suspect then fled on foot, nude, after shedding his coat, police said. Police said they are drafting warrants for murder charges against Travis Reinking, 29, of Morton Illinois, in connection to the shooting. Authorities continue to search for Reinking. A man believed to be Reinking was last seen in a wood line near Discovery at Mountain View Apartments on Mountain Springs Drive, near the Waffle House. The man was wearing black pants and no shirt, police said. The "hero" suffered an injury to his elbow, along with some other abrasions, Aaron said. He was taken to TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, was treated for minor injuries and released, according to a hospital spokeswoman. Shaw Jr. can’t recall how many shots there were, just that a man was on the floor. Shaw Jr. said a bullet grazed and he jumped toward the bathroom. "I remember I was like ‘Dang, I’m basically in a barrel,’ ” Shaw Jr. said. “There is no place for me to go.” As the suspect came through the door, he needed to reload, Shaw Jr. said. That’s when he said he rushed him. “When he came in, I distinctively remember thinking that he is going to have to work for this kill,” Shaw Jr. said. “I had a chance to stop him and thankfully I stopped him.” He added: “I grabbed the gun and kept it down. He had one hand on it. I pulled it away and threw it over the bar.”
