RELEASES

American M.C,” a docu-series from LTB Productions in association with Natural 9 Entertainment, is now available exclusively on iTunes. “American M.C” follows a group of 17 motorcyclists from across the Southwest who come together to form a real motorcycle club. The seven-part series also features guest appearances by Gary Busey and the NFL’s Brian Bosworth.

    Kudos to Ms. Shields for her taking a modest talent and parlaying it into a long career. However, I don’t watch her awful turns on The Middle and won’t warch her on SVU.

    Best show on the air.

    Looking forward to Brooke again telling the camera “Nothing Comes Between Me and My Calvins.” Yes, it sold jeans. Yes, the girls took it to heart. And why not? The only way to go. I mean even Taylor Swift gave us a 21st Century twist on this. And why not? Real hand or phantom hand, proving once again there’s no such thing as bad publicity. Even if David is now out of a job when his boss was told “to do the right thing” and interpreted this the only way you could interpret it and put David out in the street. But maybe Brooke will give us a reason to watch L & O. That’s why she’s been recruited. And this kind of change is always good.

    Great she’s terrific so happy.
