The Memory Book Opens on Hallmark Movie Channel July 26

The Memory Book

When you comb through a bin of swap meet finds, have you ever wondered about the items’ past owners? Love-wary photographer Chloe (Meghan Ory) stumbles upon an old photo album chronicling the perfect love of a young couple from the 1970s. “Life has taught her that you can’t trust love and you’re really better off just trusting yourself. She loves her friends and her art and that’s enough for her,” says Ory. But suddenly, Chloe’s art is no longer enough; inspired by and skeptical of the images of the couple in the album, she vows to find them and learn their … Continue reading

“Sharknado 2″ highlights Syfy’s “Sharknado Week”

"Sharknado 2" highlights Syfy's "Sharknado Week"

Syfy’s original Sharknado was a social-media hit when it debuted last summer (though not necessarily a ratings smash, interestingly enough; more people seemed to snark about the film on Twitter than perhaps watched it). Naturally, then, there is now a sequel, which — after soliciting entries for a subtitle from fans via Twitter — Syfy and production company The Asylum have called, somewhat pedestrianly, Sharknado 2: The Second One. (A Sharknado 3 is also already in the works, set to debut in summer 2015, so Syfy is really going to ride this franchise until it jumps the shark, which may … Continue reading

Now Ray and her no-nonsense mom Kristie — who also made a splash on both series — have landed a 14-episode gig of their own. Raising Asia will premiere July 29 on Lifetime, at the oddly kid-unfriendly hour of 10/9CT. Each half-hour episode will feature the eight year old, California-based singer/dancer and her glamorous momager chasing Asia’s dreams of international fame, with bodybuilder dad Shawn, and baby sister, Bella … Continue reading
