Entertainment News Advisory

--

Good afternoon from the Canadian Press entertainment department!

As of last week, we've been sending out a new advisory designed to better highlight the top stories of the day and the coverage plans we can share for the week ahead. The advisories will hit the wire around 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. ET and will also be sent to editors by email. If you'd like to be added to the email list please contact Michael Oliveira at michael.oliveira@thecanadianpress.com.

What we're talking about:

- TV-Anne-Of-Green-Gables : Martin Sheen says "Anne of Green Gables" is a great classic with a strong family message rarely seen on TV these days. It's one of the reasons the "Apocalypse Now" star signed on to a new TV movie about the feisty red-headed orphan. 315 words. By Cassandra Szklarski.

- Ask-A-Celeb: We asked Jose Bautista, Ian McKellen, the Barenaked Ladies, Ben Heppner and Joannie Rochette: Who should play you in a biopic movie? 485 words.

- US-TV-Transgender-Reality-Show: "This family would make a great TV show!" That's what Evanston, Illinois, teen Ben Lehwald told his mother a couple of years ago. Clearly, Ben was on to something. "Becoming Us," the show that resulted, follows him as a 16-year-old dealing with the usual challenges of high school and encroaching adulthood -- plus the recent news that his father is becoming a woman. 950 words.

- Brioux-on-the-Box: CBC's search for edgy, HBO-like fare has led to "Blackstone". 675 words. By Bill Brioux.

Coming Sunday:

- MUSIC-James-Taylor: How sweet it is: James Taylor says he wants to keep making new music, and he promises it won't take another dozen or so years to release it. That's how long it took the soul-soothing singer-songwriter to put out "Before This World," on sale Tuesday. 600 words. By Victoria Ahearn. Moves at 9 a.m.
