Go Now: Latest News in the Addictive World of Entertainment

By Garrett Godwin

Hello, this is Garrett Godwin, and it is time to Go Now once again for the latest news in the addictive world that we all know and love so much as the world of entertainment, so let`s get started, shall we?

  • The first two seasons of "10 Items or Less" is coming to DVD. The half-improv, half-scripted comedy follows a mildly successful businessman (John Lehr) from New York who returns home to run his family supermarket after the death of his father. The series has been on TBS since November 2006, and recently been picked up for a third season, which is scheduled to air early 2009. You can pick up 10 Items or Less` first and second seasons on DVD on January 13.
  • For nine seasons on CBS, he was "The King of Queens", and now Kevin James is back on the big screen as Paul Blart: "Mall Cop", as a security guard who gets a chance at heroism when an elite group of thieves take over his mall. James co-wrote the script and is also one of the producers, along with Adam Sandler, in which they co-starred on 2007`s "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry" and recently "You Don`t Mess with the Zohan", where James made a cameo. Mall Cop is scheduled to be released in theaters next month.
  • And get ready to get even with Oscar winner Timothy Hutton in the new cable series Leverage, about a team of expert thieves and con artists led by a former insurance investigator (Hutton). As modern-day Robin Hoods, they steal from the rich and powerful on behalf of the victimized. The series debuted with limited interruptions this Sunday night at 10pm, and began airing new episodes in its regular Tuesday timeslot at 10pm on TNT.

And that is all the time we have here today, so thanks for joining me. But don`t forget to check out what`s happening right here on The SOP. I`m Garrett Godwin, and I have to "Go Now" once again, so I`ll see you later.
