Showtime has ordered a Boston-focused pilot from Ben Affleck and Matt Damon.

Based on an original idea by Affleck and Chuck MacLean (“Boston Strangler”), who wrote the script, “City on a Hill” is a fictional account of what was called the “Boston Miracle.”

The pilot will be directed by Gavin O’Connor (“The Accountant”), who will serve as executive producer along with James Mangold (“Logan”) and Jennifer Todd (“Memento”) of Pearl Street Films.


Quincy Jones was awarded $9.4 million by a Los Angeles jury Wednesday in a trial over royalties and production fees from the recordings he made with Michael Jackson, the Associated Press reported.

Jones had sought $30 million in his suit, which he filed in 2013. Michael Jackson’s estate had countered that the producer was owed $392,000.


The upcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm has announced the stars guest starring.

Previous guest stars Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen will be returning and Elizabeth Banks, Bryan Cranston, Jimmy Kimmel, Ed Begley Jr., Carrie Brownstein, Nick Offerman, Nasim Pedrad and Elizabeth Perkins are amongst the new guest stars on the show.

Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm will premiere on October 1st on HBO.
