*Comedy Central has given a pilot green light to “Legends,” an animated comedy centering on a trio of high school basketball players who are legends in their own minds – and really, nowhere else.
According to Deadline.com, freshmen benchwarmers and friends Jamal, Grover and Milk try and mostly fail to make an impression at Bluford High, whether it’s on the court or with the ladies.
The project from Bento Box Entertainment was created and developed by animator Brad Ableson (“The Simpsons”), Bento Box head of Creative Development and Original Programming Mike Clements, sports producers Quinn Hawking (ESPN, Fox Sports, NFL Network) and Josiah Johnson (NFL Network, “Jim Rome” On Showtime) as well as writer Michael Starburry (“The Inevitable Defeat Of Mister And Pete”).
Additionally, Hawking will voice Jamal and Johnson will voice Grover and Milk as the two are bringing their experience as former UCLA basketball benchwarmers to the project.

Chestnut will next be seen in Universal’s November release “The Best Man Holiday.”
Detroit woman, Mercedes, is outraged by the lack of support from civil servants when she was involved in a fight in front of Legend’s Coney Island on Detroit’s westside, Saturday, April 27, 2013.
*The voyeurism in the U.S. has hit a new moral low with the level of crimes being committed on video.
Too many people are focusing on becoming amateur cameramen and bullies rather than being helpful.
A Detroit woman by the name of Mercedes was caught, literally, ass out, on camera during a brawl at a Detroit Coney Island restaurant called Legends on West Davison on the westside of Detroit.
Mercedes said that she and a friend walked into the restaurant and immediately, women she did not know, started talking about her.
It gets fuzzy as to who threw the first lick at Mercedes, but a video captured them in a brawl with several women on top of her and her bare bottom exposed along with her breasts.
The super sugar bear that came charging out of nowhere and fell on top of her had ripped underwear and her bare behind exposed as well.
*New details about this year’s Grammy Awards show have surfaced regarding the scrambling producers had to do to honor singer Whitney Houston.
Her death occurred less than 24 hours before the live telecast and the show’s staff was forced to put something together in a hurry.

He decided to open up in prayer, an unusual happening for any televised Hollywood awards ceremony.
The last minute changes and scrambles are all detailed in new documentary, “A Death in the Family: the Show Must Go On.”
The film premiered Monday at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
From the time the call was made to the finishing touches, the awards ceremony was more than a memorial; it affected so many others who were involved.
