Pictures: Eartha Kitt as Catwoman




David Tennant and Catherine Tate reunite for Shakespeare production

The "Doctor Who" duo will appear on stage together in a new West End production of "Much Ado About Nothing."

Plans for Wonder Woman TV series reportedly scrapped

Too bad. I think an updated Wonder Woman TV series has potential, but I guess network execs disagree. From Entertainment Weekly:

Late Friday, NBC was the final network that declined to bring back the superhero.

Warner Bros. TV was actively shopping a script from David E. Kelley that updated the period tale about an Amazon princess who battled Nazis and other bad guys during World War II. One source close to the project said the Wonder Woman team won’t give up on the project, even though it’s “not moving forward at this time.”
