Coming Attractions This Week:  
January 27th to February 2nd  


We never get tired of Sherlock Holmes as he again demonstrates outstanding forensic scientific skills in this week's two back to back episodes. They are textbook cases of his amazing abilities of deduction. All the more brilliant when we move away from Holmes's astute logical reasoning into the world of mass hysteria. First, with George Orwell's disturbing animated drama, Animal Farm. Then on to Morons From Outer Space where interplanetary  silliness reaches epidemic proportions. And finally, a glimpse at the early days of rock & roll as we witness  how the new born-in-the-US  musical genre captivated an entire generation in Alan Freed's Rock Rock Rock. Pop music was never the same again!

Mick Jagger Starts Up New Career As Hollywood Producer

Jagger is in talks to turn the Oscar-nominated documentary 20 Feet From Stardom into a one-hour scripted TV series and Broadway musical. He would executive produce the series with Victoria Pearman through their Jagged Films banner alongside the  film's director Morgan Neville.
Like the film, the TV series and Broadway musical adaptation follows the lives of backup singers who perform in the shadows of some of the biggest music stars in the business. The TV series would depict contemporary performers.
20 Feet From Stardom debuted at the Sundance Film Festival last year. The crowd-pleasing picture went on to become the highest grossing documentary of the year and an Oscar nominee for best documentary. Though Jagger isn't a producer  on the 20 Feet From Stardom documentary, he appears extensively in interviews and footage.
Legendary Actor, Filmmaker and Humanitarian Jerry Lewis To
Receive Lifetime Achievement Award at Fifth Annual TCM Classic Film Festival

Lewis, 87, will participate in a hand and foot ceremony in front of the refurbished TCL Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard on Saturday April 12th and attend a screening of The Nutty Professor which he starred in and directed.
"Jerry Lewis is a very important name whenever movie comedy is discussed and enjoyed" TCM host Robert Osborne who also serves as official host of the TCM Film Festival said in a statement. "Jerry has provided the world with great merriment and laughter, while also showing in such films as Martin Scorsese's The King of Comedy what an exceptional
dramatic actor he can be. Add to this his many credits as a popular director, producer and writer and you see the reason we are pleased to be able to honor him for his more than 60 years of contributions to the world of motion pictures."
For more than 60 years Lewis has also been the driving force behind the fight against Muscular Dystrophy, raising more than $2 billion for patient care and research.

Everyone's A Philanthropist
On the Warner Bros. Lot 
The Studio's Impact Program invites employees to determine
the company's charitable partners.

When it comes to corporate social responsibility, Warner Bros likes to enlist some help from its employees---all of them. That's the philosophy at the core of Warner Bros. Impact, started in 2008 to give those working in the company a voice in its philanthropic efforts. While WB has year-round staff dedicated to implementing the donations it chooses to make, everyone at the studio gets to decide exactly where the money will go.
Warners invites each employee to submit one organization for the company to support over a two-year cycle. A steering committee whittles down the submissions to 24 nonprofit candidates from which
employees vote on the final twelve partners.
Eligible organizations earn a two-year partnership with Warners  and they are invited to collaborate with employees on events and fundraisers.
According to a Warners spokesperson, a key tenant of the Impact initiative is to focus on strategic giving rather than checkbook philanthropy. Still, the company will contribute to an organization in which the employee sits on the board for at least a year or donates 30 volunteer hours. Warner Bros. also matches annual employee charitable donations with a set limit per individual.
As much as Impact is about philanthropy, it's also about brining WB employees together around something other than the water cooler. For example, one WB exec asked an entire department to join in a Habitat for humanity build.
And with Impact events staged at least once a month, another often-seen rallying point around the studio these days should surprise no one. It's a pop-up puppy kennel located by the commissary, courtesy of the local Best Friends Animal Shelter.

See you on every day. Where the films are always fabulous and always free. On desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
