A Response From TV One Denying Bankruptcy Claim

Today we received an email from the TV One Network disputing the claims that they were filing for bankruptcy. Also the network claims that the closing of their Los Angeles offices was a move that they chose to do, and they are still striving in this tough economic market. Despite their claim, we believe our source is very credible and we would have not printed this story otherwise. Stay tuned for more from this story as we will investigate further into this claim.

Martin Lawrence New Prince Of Zamunda?

Our sources have discovered that actor and comedian Martin Lawrence is about to tackle a film with similar traits to Eddie Murphy's Coming To America. We hear that production company Alcon Entertainment has acquired the film Back to America, a film that is about a working-class man from Queens who discovers he is heir to the throne of an African country and travels there to claim his birthright.

In Coming To America, Murphy, playing the Royal Prince of Zamunda, came to the United States to seek his bride.

Lawrence will produce the film via his Runteldat Entertainment banner alongside Alcon.
