LOS ANGELES, CA (January 4, 2016) – The psychedelic summer of 1969 comes to life in the Lifetime Original Movie, Manson’s Lost Girls, featuring the next generation of Hollywood stars MacKenzie Mauzy, (Into the Woods), Eden Brolin (I Dream Too Much), Greer Grammer (Awkward) and Christian Madsen (Divergent). Premiering Saturday, February 6 at 8pm ET/PT, the film paints a new picture of Charles Manson’s (Jeff Ward, The Mentalist) world, as told through the stories of Linda Kasabian (Mauzy) and the other women who fell under his demonic spell to create one of the most famous cults of all time. Brolin stars as Susan Atkins, Grammer is Leslie Van Houten, Madsen portrays Tex Watson, Grace Victoria Cox (Under the Dome) is Lynnette “Squeaky” Fromme, Isabel Shill (Orange is the New Black) stars as Patricia Krenwinkel and Garrett Coffey (Battle for Skyark) is Bobby Beausoleil.

Manson’s Lost Girls follows Linda as she first arrives at the seemingly idyllic Spahn Ranch hippie commune where she is embraced with open arms. Seduced by the group’s free-love lifestyle, Linda revels in the sisterhood and acceptance. Taken with Manson, he soon draws her into criminal activities, including late-night “creepy crawls” to steal from lavish homes. Linda reluctantly becomes an accomplice in Manson’s “Helter Skelter,” a drug-fueled murder spree that included the brutal death of actress Sharon Tate. She ultimately breaks away and turns herself in as a witness for the prosecution and helps to convict Manson.

With original 1960’s music from iconic bands such as Donovan, The Turtles and CCR, the film captures the bohemian clothing, hairstyles and makeup of the time.

Manson’s Lost Girls is produced by Asylum Entertainment with Emmy(R) Award-winning Steven Michaels and Jonathan Koch (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe) and Nancy Bennett (The Red Tent) serving as executive producers. Leslie Libman (NCIS) directed from a script written by Matthew Tabak (Plain Truth) and Stephen Kronish (The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe).

Two months ago we brought you the news that the ABC-aired 2014 series Forever – starring Ioan Gruffudd, Alana de la Garza, and Judd Hirsch – was being prepared for DVD release. Show creator Matt Miller had said back then on Twitter that the set, “will be released in states pre-Xmas and int’t after Jan 1!”

Now we’ve gotten word from the studio that Forever will be released in the United States via the Warner Archive Collection, as an MOD (manufacture on demand) title, available in the near future. Will it be out before Christmas, though, as Miller has said? No, sorry, it won’t make it under the tree. Our contact with the Warner Archive informs us that this item won’t be available until 2016. A specific date for this MOD release in the States has not yet be finalized.

However, things are a bit different north of the border. Warner Home Entertainment of Canada hasn’t officially announced the title yet, but this morning we received word from our friends up north, in Canada’s home video retail industry, that the first (and only) season of Forever will be available in stores on DVD beginning January 19th in Canada. Package art, pricing and details aren’t available yet, however, since the studio has not made it official.

Nor is box art, cost or detailed info available for the State-side Warner Archives release, either. But this split-method release between the two countries isn’t the first of its type: Mom – The Complete 2nd Season – an award-winning sitcom currently airing on the CBS network – was similarly released differently in each country just this past month, with the releases in each nation two weeks apart from each other. It’s possible that the USA and Canadian release dates of Forever will also be on different dates, but that’s yet to be determined.

Hilarie Burton, Emily Kinney and MacKenzie Mauzy Guest Star
“Memories of Murder” – The death of a young college woman sends Henry and Jo back to the cultural hotbed that was New York in the 1970s. Murder victim Sarah Clancy’s fascination with authentic 70’s attire is more than just a fashion statement, it is revealed that she had an unhealthy obsession with the past. The investigation ironically leads Henry and Jo back to college professor Molly Dawes (aka Iona Payne, the dominatrix), who taught Sarah in a course on sexual identity. Molly not only agrees to help in the search for the killer, but she and Henry spark a hot, romantic connection. Flashbacks to 1979 reveal Henry and Abigail’s struggle coming to terms with their age difference as they try to celebrate their anniversary with a night on the town, on “Forever,” TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 24 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network.

Forever” stars Ioan Gruffudd as Henry, Judd Hirsch as Abe, Alana De La Garza as Detective Jo Martinez, Lorraine Toussaint as Lt. Joanne Reece, Donnie Keshawarz as Detective Hanson and Joel David Moore as Lucas.

Guest starring are Mackenzie Mauzy as Abigail Morgan (1955), Hilarie Burton (“One Tree Hill”) as Molly Dawes (Iona Payne) and Emily Kinney (“The Walking Dead”) as Jennifer Schroeder, Cotter Smith as Neville and Janet Zarish as Abigail Morgan (1979).

Billy Magnussen and Mackenzie Mauzy, both seen in the “Into the Woods” film, will join “American Horror Story” star Finn Wittrock in a Feb. 9 industry reading of Diana Amsterdam’s new play The Dodgers, about a group of musicians and friends facing the Vietnam draft lottery.

Wittrock, Magnussen and Mauzy are joined by Hannah Bos (The Open House), Greg Hildreth (Peter and The Starcatcher) and Preston Sadleir (Next to Normal) in the reading, to be held at the Davenport Theatre. Dave Solomon directs.

According to press notes, the play, by Amsterdam (Fast Girls, Carnival Round the Central Figure), “examines the ramifications of the Vietnam draft from a unique and intimate perspective. When two members of the band pull low numbers, one is forced to choose between an unthinkable dodge and an amoral war. This choice tests his sense of brotherhood, and shatters his idealism – ending the mythic sixties.”

The reading will be presented by Ashley Kate Adams of AKA Studio Productions (“Rules of Cool,” “photo op”). The general manager for the reading is Evan Bernardin, and the stage manager is Melanie T. Morgan.

“The Man in the Killer Suit” — When all the ingredients for a sensational, scandalous murder investigation are combined — a fairytale romance gone wrong, a jealous mentor and lover, an anxious, wealthy father of the beautiful fiancée – does love really conquer all? An engaged British aristocrat turns up dead in Central Park, and his identity is called into question, as well as who killed him. The trail leads Henry and Jo through one of New York’s top luxury department stores and from working class to upper crust New York society. Henry remembers back to 1957 when, once again, he and his family had to pack up and move to protect his secret. Coincidentally, Abe crosses paths with the woman who he memorably shared his first kiss with as a youngster, on “Forever,” WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 7 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET), on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD: 12/2/14)

Movie-musical Into the Woods fell just short of Unbroken, opening in third place with $31 million. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomband Annie each dropped two spots, to Nos. 4 and 5 with $20.6 million and $16.6 million, respectively.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 also slipped, falling to No. 6 with $10 million in its sixth week in theaters. The Gambler opened in seventh place with $9.3 million.
After opening wide, The Imitation Game pulled into the Top 10, landing at No. 8 with $7.9 million. Rounding out the Top 10 were Exodus: Gods and Kings (No. 9, $6.7 million) and Wild (No. 10, $5.4 million).


If your Into the Woods characters were in Toronto, where would you do your scenes?

BM: CN Tower! Boom baby, it’s right there, it’s so high. There’s also the Ontario College of Art. That would be cool.

If you could swap roles with anyone in the film, who would you play?

MM: Jack (Daniel Huttlestone). I think it’s such a fun role. I like giants in the sky and he’s such a passionate character and there’s a great arc to his story.

BM: I guess the Baker (James Corden) because he overcomes such a huge obstacle of breaking the chain of his father’s choices and to have the courage to become the father he needs to be and wants to be.

Both of you are teamed onscreen with big stars. What was it like working with Chris Pine (Cinderella’s Prince, brother of Rapunzel’s Prince) and Meryl Streep (the Witch, who takes Rapunzel and raises her as her daughter)?

BM: I can say I have a friend now (in Pine). He’s generous, a smart actor and just a good friend now. I really think he’s wonderful.

MM: Amazing. (Streep) gives you so much in a scene and you receive it and give something back as a product of that and something new is created … and she’s a wonderful human being. Very aware of the effect she has on a room and does everything she can to make you feel comfortable. She’s a wonderful woman: mother, friend, actress, leader, she really brought this cast together.

You both come from daytime dramas. (Magnussen on As The World Turns and Mauzy on Guiding Light, and The Bold and the Beautiful). Who from Into the Woods would you like to see on a soap?

BM: The Witch is the aunt that comes in and says: “I slept with your brother!” I have to say soaps were the hardest thing I’ve ever done. It’s like boot camp for acting.

MM: I think Chris Pine’s Prince is such a daytime drama hunk character.

Do you believe in happily ever after?

BM: I realized at least for Rapunzel’s Prince, you’re not Prince Charming but you can be right for someone. You’re not prefect.

MM: Happily ever after has this thing attached to it that implies things have to be perfect and that’s the misconception. I do believe in long-term relationships that can be really beautiful that doesn’t mean there isn’t gong to be a struggle along the way. There is a level of it that requires work, not just a relationship but happily ever after in a job or whatever that means to you. I think that’s what Into the Woods addresses: these people getting what they wanted and then having to deal with the consequences.
