E! is making a regal entry into scripted programming. The network has picked up one of its first two scripted pilots, The Royals starring Elizabeth Hurley, to series. The one-hour drama about a fictional British Royal family set in modern day London that is informed by the regal opulence of the British monarchy and framed by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, hails from Lionsgate and a trio of One Tree Hill alums. OTH creator Mark Schwahn wrote and directed The Royals, which he is executive producing with Brian Robbins and Joe Davola. Getting E! into scripted space had been a priority for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment topper Bonnie Hammer. Sibling cable channel Bravo had been put on a similar path and just greenlighted its first scripted series, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. E!’s second pilot, musical drama Songbyrd, remains in contention. “The Royals will offer a fictional look behind the very public gilded façade of the palace gates to imagine the private, lush, fun, sexy world of the most-watched celebrity family on the planet,” said VH1′s EVP of original programming and development Jeff Olde. Added the network’s scripted executive Kevin Plunkett who spearheads E!’s scripted efforts, “This is a big idea and Mark, Brian, Joe and the Lionsgate team delivered.” Set and shot in Great Britain, The Royals stars Hurley, Vincent Regan, ...

E! has just greenlit its first original scripted series. From Lionsgate, the one-hour drama “The Royals,” starring Elizabeth Hurley, is set to premiere in 2015.
The series is executive produced, written and directed by Mark Schwahn (“One Tree Hill”), and executive produced by Brian Robbins and Joe Davola (“One Tree Hill,” “Smallville”).
“The Royals” follows a modern day British royal family and sheds light on their lives both in the public eye and in their personal moments.
“We are excited that E!'s first original scripted series will transport viewers into a world that they are already intensely interested in, but reality cameras would never give them access to. ‘The Royals’ will offer a fictional look behind the very public gilded façade of the palace gates to imagine the private, lush, fun, sexy world of the most-watched celebrity family on the planet,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming & Development. “It's a perfect series to introduce E! viewers to scripted pop culture programming on the network.”
Read E!'s synopsis for the series below:
Queen Helena (Hurley) has the power, beauty and intelligence to get anything and everything she wants. And failure isn't an option, especially when it comes to protecting her family's image, which she will stop at nothing to control. King Simon (Regan) is a moral compass amidst the chaos of palace life. He is a good king, yet one who controversially places his own family above the people he rules. The youngest son of Simon and Helena, Liam (Moseley) is thrust into the spotlight when he unexpectedly becomes the heir apparent in the pilot. Liam enjoys the many perks of being the world's most eligible bachelor while coping with the rigors and pressures that come with being the future King. Sole daughter Eleanor (Park) is a controversial princess whose bad choices play out in the tabloids, much to the Royals’ chagrin. She is raw, intelligent and forever waging a battle between her desires to be young and independent and the rules and tradition she was raised to live by. Ophelia, a young American girl, is modern, self-reliant and independently thinking, which causes her to butt up against the traditions and rigidity of the Royal family when she embarks on a romance with Liam. The monarchy is a world she has known for a long time as her father is the head of security, but she now experiences the spotlight in a different, more personal way when she starts dating the prince.

Paul Reiser has been set to recur on Andrew Gurland’s new FX series Married, which was picked up to series in January and will debut this summer. Created, directed and executive produced by Gurland, Married stars Nat Faxon and Judy Greer as Russ and Lina Bowman, who can barely remember what was like before kids, debt, and suburbia rained on their romance. But every once in a while they are reminded what drew them together in the first place — they’re best friends. Riser will play the older love interest of co-star Jenny Slate’s character. Brad Gelman also co-stars. Reiser, who had a pair of films — Whiplash and Life After Beth — premiere at Sundance this year, most recently appeared in HBO’s Behind The Candelabra. He is repped by Gersh, New Wave Entertainment, and attorney Jeff Finkelstein. Treme actor Michael Cerveris has landed a recurring role on CBS’ drama The Good Wife. He will play James Castro, the charming and well-liked Cook County state’s attorney. Cerveris, whose TV credits include Fox’s Fringe and on the film side in 2009′s Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, is repped by Innovative.

Upskirt photos are legal, a Massachusetts court actually ruled this week ... at least until the indignant state legislature now passes a bill outlawing them.
Lawmakers and officials widely criticized the ruling and spoke of criminal penalties for offenders, who they called “peeping Toms” empowered by technology.
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court ruled on a Boston-based case in which a man took upskirt pics of female straphangers riding the subway.
It found that a Massachusetts law criminalizing the covert photographing of nude or partly nude people does not apply to “upskirting,” for one simple reason:
The photographed women are wearing clothing.
This is true of countless celebrity pics (see Kate Middleton, below), but does that mean it should be legal? This has become a surprisingly heated debate.
Michael Robertson was arrested in August 2010 for taking cellphone videos and pictures up the skirts of two women riding on the MBTA’s Green Line.
One of them was a transit police decoy. He was charged with secretly photographing a partially nude person, but fought the case all the way to the end.
A Boston Municipal Court judge rejected his bid to toss the case, but Robertson appealed, and the Supreme Judicial Court, finding in his favor, dismissed the charge.
"A female passenger on a MBTA trolley who is wearing a skirt, dress, or the like covering these parts of her body is not 'partially nude,'" wrote Justice Margot Botsford.
"No matter what is or is not underneath the skirt by way of underwear or clothing,"
A law that criminalizes upskirting “is eminently reasonable,” she added, however, the current law, passed in 2004, “does not address it," she wrote.
The court also noted that a pair of proposed measures, introduced in January 2013 and still pending in the legislature, that would make upskirting illegal.
Both measures “appear to attempt to address the upskirting at issue here."
This is not the first time that a court has found that existing laws do not apply to upskirting, a somewhat new problem made possible by technology.
The Erin Andrews peephole video seems almost archaic nowadays.
In some states, such rulings have prompted lawmakers to revise laws, a kind of legal catch-up also seen in new legislation on "revenge porn," for example.
In both Indiana and Washington, lawmakers reacted to court rulings that upskirters had to be let off, under current laws, by approving new laws to make it illegal.
New York and Florida have also enacted laws explicitly criminalizing upskirt photos, as the court’s decision noted. Massachusetts lawmakers will likely follow.
“Every person, male or female, has a right to privacy beneath his or her own clothing,” Daniel Conley, district attorney for Suffolk County, said in a statement.
“If the statute as written doesn’t protect that privacy, then I’m urging the legislature to act rapidly and adjust it so it does. No respectable citizen wants this to continue."
