HBO preems ‘Cinema Verite’

Reality TV's first family gets biopic

Paramount turned itself into a time capsule from the 1970s to bring back the Louds of “An American Family” fame. HBO preemed its “Cinema Verite” pic, about reality TV’s first family, and a few members of the real-life Loud brood were present Monday night to walk the carpet with their movie counterparts, including Diane Lane and James Gandolfini, who plays the original PBS series’ producer, Craig Gilbert.

Thomas Dekker, who essays eldest son Lance, claimed he would never do a reality TV series after shooting “Cinema Verite.” Director Robert Pulcini wasn’t so sure. “Never say never,” he said. Also, Pulcini’s wife and co-director, Shari Springer Berman, revealed that if they could come up with an original idea, the couple might just be interested in directing a reality TV series.

While much of the cast insisted they don’t watch reality TV — or any TV, for that matter — Lane made a confession.

” ‘America’s Funniest Home Videos,’ I am guilty as charged,” she of a fave show.

The reception following the screening stuck to the 70’s theme with floral print table clothes and oldies playing in the background.
