Per Deadline, "[i]t’s been 20 years since her band had its ubiquitous — and only — hit, but Linda Perry has kept busy as a songwriter and producer. Now the former 4 Non Blondes singer is coming to VH1 with The Linda Perry Project, a docuseries in which she works to relaunch her record label and mentors young artists in the hope of signing them. Perry serves as an EP of the show, along with John Irwin, Damian Sullivan, Rob Buchta, and Mark Herwick. It’ll premiere in the summer. The ’90s are suddenly hot on VH1, as the Linda Perry Project  announcement comes a week after the cable net drew 4.5 million viewers for its biopic about TLC."

The Walking Dead has been renewed for a 5th season, to no one's surprise. 

Olivia Pope is pregnant.  Mazel tov.  So is Kristin Cavallari.

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski is pitching an animated series called The Gronks ?  Please no.  According to Deadspin, "The Gronks  would be a lightly fictionalized look at adventures of the Gronkowski clan, the five brothers, Gordy Jr., Chris, Dan, Glenn, and Rob, three of whom are in the NFL, and scion Gordy, aka Papa Gronk. Adventures like the time Rob emailed his teacher and told him to suck his dick, or took a Viagra pill before a Las Vegas pool party to impress women with his 'semi-boner.'

"We're told the concept is being shopped around by by the Gronkowskis' managers, Henry Penzi and Wayne Carmona, but the heavy lifting will come in the offseason, when the plan is to have the entire Gronk family walk in on pitch meetings and 'instantly sell it.'"

Six shows on the verge of being canceled

From TV Guide: "It's business time:  Bret McKenzie, half of the popular music-comedy duo the Flight of the Conchords, is developing an animated comedy for Fox.

"The New Zealand native came up with the idea for the untitled show, set in the world of NASA. Fox has given a script and presentation order to the project. McKenzie is executive producing along with King of the Hill alums Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May; all three are writing the project via 20thCentury Fox TV.

"The untitled workplace comedy follows the exploits of a group of employees toiling away at an almost-obsolete NASA space center in Boulder, Colorado. McKenzie hasn't yet committed to voicing a part on the show, but that remains a possibility."

Ke$ha : My Crazy Beautiful Life premieres tonight on MTV.  I haven't been shy about my affinity for this show and I'm looking forward to season 2.  Get in.
