Will “Saul” hold court in spin off history?

Posted by on April 5, 2014 | 2 comments

UPDATE 4/6/14: Aaron Paul has made no secret of his wish & intent to be a part of the Breaking Bad prequel, Better Call Saul…

Well, TONIGHT a source very close to the actor and the production tells OneHeadlightInk EXCLUSIVELY that all the i’s have been dotted and t’s crossed, officially adding the actor to the upcoming shoot schedule!!!!

Filming is set to begin in Albuquerque by the end of May and continue through early July.

Better Call Saul Spin off success story

With new character developments emerging and production set to begin within weeks right here in Albuquerque, die hard Baddies around the world await with bated breath.

As anticipation and speculation mounts, separate camps are already beginning to form. Some being of the mindset that Saul can do no wrong as far as being capable of delivering the same level of top tier dark-dramedy so exquisitely executed by its parent, Breaking Bad. While other more paranoid types (count me in here) are terrified that the beloved offspring could turn out to be a bad seed. Please, oh please dear lord (aka Vince Gilligan) don’t let this chip off the old masterpiece devolve into another Joanie Loves Chachi.

Now while sitting in the proverbial waiting room until this project finally airs in November, there is a middle ground to be found which looks a lot like hope. After all, it has been done before – success, even surpassed success of a spinoff from its jump off. Maybe nobody really loved Chachi, but those Milwaukee beer factory workers, Laverne and Shirley too spawned from Happy Days and have since rightfully earned their place in television history.

Just look at how all the hairspray, stone washed denim and shoulder pads of some over privileged teenagers set forth the hit 90s twenty-something prime-time soap opera that was and always will be the one and only Melrose Place. Cynical curmudgeon Archie Bunker and all of his family gave us George and Weezie.

Frasier’s success surpassed that of his ensemble on Cheers. And then there’s Mary. The Goddess who is Mary Tyler Moore and the vast talents behind her shows and characters wrangled her her own show after the Dick Van Dyke Show and even further from Mary Tyler Moore, were we gifted with RHODA!

From the stand-up comedy stages whence he came, Bob Newhart carved out a solid spot for himself in a prime-time comedy show of his very own – AND THEN went on to do it again in the very next decade, dropping the Bob from his Newhart and coming back as a whole new man in an even more successful show. So it can be done.

While it’s still too early to tell who will spinoff from where and what will be what in the prequel world of “Saul Goodman”, a few things are a certainty – Odenkirk can bring it, Gilligan and (Peter) Gould are ferocious and clever beyond our wildest dreams, and there is a standing fan base at the ready to embrace this chapter of the best bad experience of our lives.

In the meantime chew on this: Thursday Showbiz 411 published a scoop claiming that new “Saul” characters will include, “regular players named Burt, Dr. Thurber, Beth, Eddie, and Zak and Luke. Burt is described as a “Kennedy” type lawyer in a white-shoe law firm. Dr. Thurber and Beth are also supposed to be lawyers. Eddie is a career criminal, a cool guy who speaks Spanish. Zak and Luke are skateboarding twins around 20 years old.”

Come on November!

Touring Like Rock Stars: #NMFilm 50 to 1 on track to Box Office success

Posted by on March 20, 2014 | 9 comments

OneHeadlightInk-50-to-1-premiere-Kimo-marquee-3

No, I didn’t go to the world premiere of 50 to 1 in Albuquerque, then hang out with the stars all night and bring them with me to 94 Rock this morning (but that would’ve been pretty cool) – it just looks like I did!

Here is this blogette’s little segment on the KZRR 94 Rock Morning Show, including a quick rundown on the premiere:

Starting where it all began en route to the winner’s circle; just like the majestic horse who lifted his New Mexico team to the top of racing’s most coveted contest, the filmmakers and stars behind this big screen adaptation of the triumph are a bunch of tough guys & gals who are taking their little dynamo on a tour that just won’t quit!

On one of their many stops on the first leg of their mega movie tour to discuss their film, tireless producer/director Jim Wilson and star Christian Kane were full of admiration about filming in New Mexico, giving major praise to local crew!

Joined by jockey Calvin Borel in studio, Kane also took a moment to give a very heartfelt thanks to his beloved #Kaniacs!

THE ALBUQUERQUE MUSEUM PRESENTS: EVERYBODY’S NEIGHBOR: VIVIAN VANCE

Posted by on March 18, 2014 | Comments Off

Vivian Vance exhibit in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE, NM– So many of us grew up watching I Love Lucy throughout the years, and we probably do our best to catch re-runs on TV whenever we get the chance. There is something about the nostalgia of it all that proves irresistible. But I bet that most of us never knew that one of this famous TV show’s beloved stars was actually an Albuquerque talent.

Everybody’s Neighbor: Vivian Vance features the history and popular culture of vaudeville star and actress Vivian Vance, who appeared regularly at Albuquerque Little Theater (ALT) and the KiMo. Vance, who spent part of her young adult life in Albuquerque, eventually won her most endearing role as Ethel Mertz on the TV situation comedy, I Love Lucy. The exhibition will be on view at the Albuquerque Museum from March 29, 2014 – January 31, 2015.

Vivian Roberta Jones, known as “Viv” to her friends and family, was born in 1909 in Cherryvale, Kansas. As a teenager she decided to pursue acting career, against the wishes of her religious mother, Mae. Vivian’s large family eventually moved to Albuquerque and Vivian and her husband Joe Danneck joined the Joneses. She found a job modeling clothes, but in 1930 she defiantly announced that she had landed a role in the racy vaudeville show, Cushman’s Revue, playing at the KiMo Theater. She traveled with the show, then returned to Albuquerque.

Under the guidance of ALT director Kathryn Kennedy O’Connor, Vivian appeared in the theater’s first two seasons. Convinced that she had potential, O’Connor and the theatre held a benefit in 1932 by selling tickets to The Trial of Mary Dugan. Critics raved, writing, “Whether Vivian Vance can make good in New York will be decided next month, but the Albuquerque actress…showed that she can make good before a hometown audience.” With the proceeds, O’Connor sent Vivian to New York to study under actress Eva Le Gallienne.

Soon Vivian started landing chorus roles, eventually graduating to supporting roles in Hooray for What! and Let’s Face it! with Danny Kaye and Eve Arden. In between productions Vivian returned to Albuquerque. Vivian always felt that she owed a debt of gratitude to the people of Albuquerque for supporting her early career, and returned often to appear at the ALT free of charge. By the early 1940s, Vivian was living in New York but had also purchased a small adobe ranch house in Cubero, west of Albuquerque near Grants.

Vivian then moved to California to work on film and theatre projects. While visiting the La Jolla Playhouse in 1951, Desilu Studios producer Desi Arnaz watched Vivian’s amazing performance as Olive Lashbrook in Voice of the Turtle. Convinced that she was perfect for the role of Ethel Mertz in I Love Lucy, Desi Arnaz brought Vivian into the studio for a surprise introduction to his wife and star of the show, Lucille Ball. Because of Vivian’s good looks, impeccable comedic timing and a street-smart sense of how to play to an audience, she shined throughout the run of I Love Lucy. The 1953 episodes brought her an Emmy® Award for Best Supporting Actress in a Series, with additional nominations in 1954, 1956, and 1957.

I Love Lucy secured Vivian Vance’s place in television history. After a wondrous career in theater, film and television, the accomplished actress passed away in 1979. Many of her family members still live in New Mexico, and her sister Lou Ann holds local comedy workshops. Their stories, awards, photographs, and memorabilia contribute greatly to the exhibition, celebrating a small-town girl who hit the big-time.

COPS is returning to the Q, though the Duke says nay

Posted by on February 13, 2014 | Comments Off

COPS coming back to Albuquerque

From the Associated Press: A decade after Albuquerque’s mayor banned “Cops” from filming in New Mexico’s largest city, the reality show is returning.

But this time, it is partnering with the county. And a spokeswoman for current Mayor Richard Berry made it clear the city still wants no part in the show that follows officers making drug busts and responding to calls in mostly run-down, crime-ridden neighborhoods.

Bernalillo County Sheriff Dan Houston said Thursday that the show will begin filming with his department in April for its 26th season, to air this summer.

One of television’s original reality shows, “Cops” used to film Albuquerque police officers. But former Mayor Martin Chavez put an end to that partnership more than a decade ago, saying the show portrayed the city in a bad light.

A spokeswoman for current Mayor Richard Berry says the city was not approached about participating when the production returns.

“Had we been,” said Erin Thompson, “Mayor Berry has made it clear that he would have declined, as he is concentrating his efforts on opportunities to highlight Albuquerque as a center of innovation, arts and diversity which we believe will bring consistently positive attention to Albuquerque as a model place to live and do business. ”

While the show has become one of the longest-running in U.S. history, it has over the years drawn fire from critics who say it shows street crime without putting it in a broader context of contributing social conditions.

Houston said the Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Department is excited to be part of the show. It’s a great way to showcase the county’s high quality deputies, he said.

The Albuquerque Police Department, meantime, is struggling to repair its reputation. The department currently is under a U.S. Justice Department civil rights investigation into allegations of excessive force and three dozen shootings by officers since 2010.
