Amazon Prepping Three New Kindle Fire Tablets for Fall
Disney tried they really did to relaunch older/new franchises but they botched it and audiences didn’t respond. “John Carter” and “The Lone Ranger” will go down as expensive, money-losing flops and one could argue that “Tron: Legacy” barely did what the studio wanted (it’s hardly shocking that talk around that sequel has quieted down “Star Wars” will fill the sci-fi niche and then some is our guess…) And with studio going live-action with “Cinderella,” starting production later this year, why not use another proven title which everyone already knows back to front? So here we go with “The Jungle Book,” as THR reports Disney has hired Justin Marks, who penned an early draft of the studio’s “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” reboot, to write the script. Hooray! Listen, it’s just the bare, franchise necessities which is why this is happening, though since Rudyard Kipling’s stories are in the public domain it means they have competition from Warner Bros. who have their own Mowgli feature brewing, penned by “Harry Potter” dude Steve Kloves. So keep calm, carry on it’s another day at Disney where they figure what to make next that they can turn into toys, merchandise and theme park rides.

Theater Students Prepping for Beauty and the Beast
The untitled effort comes as NBC is looking to experiment with alternative forms of comedy outside of the sitcom. The network in recent years has struggled with scripted comedy, most recently failing to return a freshman half-hour series for a second year. For its part, NBC is only bringing back two comedies — Poehler’s Parks and Recreation and Community, which earned an eleventh-hour fifth season pickup and won’t likely premiere until midseason. PHOTOS: NBC’s 2013-14 Season: ‘About a Boy,’ ‘Ironside,’ ‘Believe,’ ‘Crisis’ NBC has not yet settled on a premise for the series, instead opting to search for writers/performers/comedians to build the show around. However, a number of format ideas have been floated early under Wallach’s oversight. While the entry would not be live like Saturday Night Live, the goal would be to have a similar concept to Fox’s In Living Color and The Carol Burnett Show, save for the former’s studio component. (Worth noting: Fox recently scrapped plans for an In Living Color reboot.) During his stay at Comedy Central, executive-turned-producer Wallach helped oversee Chappelle’s Show, The Colbert Report, Crank Yankers and more.

NBC Prepping New Sketch Comedy Series (Exclusive)
The pixel upgrade would thereby improve screen resolution on par with the current Kindle Fire HD. But the upcoming version of the Kindle Fire HD will actually jump to a 1920 x 1200 display. Finally, the 8.9-inch Kindle Fire will bump up to an impressive 2560 x 1600-pixel screen, besting the Retina display of Apple’s iPad. No pricing was confirmed by the sources, however Amazon is allegedly striving to keep all three Fire tablets at the same price levels as current models. The Kindle Fire HD will apparently receive an aesthetic upgrade in the form of a more “angular” back plate. Power and volume buttons are now moved from the side of the Fire tablets, alleviating issues with accidental presses. All three Kindle Fire models may launch as early as September.
