'Scandal' ATAS Event - Arrivals

Scandal lovers, we have a situation on our hands.

Kerry Washington is pregnant and will soon welcome her second child with husband Nnamdi Asomugha, a blessing that could affect Kerry’s TV personality Olivia Pope. According to Entertainment Weekly, the network is weighing three options: delay the show, hide the baby bump, or knock Olivia Pope up – again.

Which do you think ABC will choose? Tune into Scandal on #TGIT at 9 p.m. EST.

El Chapo

We’ll soon welcome the notorious ‘El Chapo‘ into our living rooms, courtesy of the History Channel.

Deadline reports Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman is all set to have his own drama series titled #Cartel. As for what the show will entail, the site reports:

“Written by Brancato, #Cartel will explore the global drug wars through the true story of Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman, called the most powerful drug lord in history. Described as a story of power, money, sex and the human cost of the drug wars, the drama will chronicle the kingpin’s rise to power, taking a look inside the stranger-than-fiction world of drug cartels who use social media to maintain their image, recruit new members and threaten rivals.”

El Chapo’s legacy lives on.

Star Wars actor John Boyega will play in a 2017 theater adaptation of Woyzeck, this according to Deadline. The news hit the ‘net in the wee hours of the morning and here’s what the site knows so far:

The ubiquitous Jack Thorne will script the adaptation of the iconic story about a lowly, downtrodden soldier who ends up killing his wife. The Old Vic’s Matthew Warchus cast Boyega in the title role. Boyega has previously had minor roles in the National Theatre and The Tricycle in Kilburn but this will be his first leading role in a major theatrical production.

We’ll keep you updated as more information surfaces.

Blac Chyna‘s moving on up, so of course she needs to trademark her name.

According to TMZ, the bootylicious half of #BlacRob filed the paperwork last month, as her “biz opportunities are exploding, so she’s making sure she has the exclusive right to promote products with her name. Same goes for TV gigs, movie deals and party appearances.”

The site goes on: “Sources connected to Chyna tell us the concern is some other chick — stripper or otherwise — coming along and using the “Blac(k) Chyna” moniker. The docs were filed just 2 weeks before she got engaged to Rob Kardashian, but we’re told that’s just coincidence — it should’ve been done years ago.”
