Project Greenlight may return; Feast will be released in January.

Project Greenlight 3‘s horror/slasher/alien film Feast now has a release date: January 20, 2006. No word yet about how wide the release will be.

More significantly, the HBO-turned-Bravo series that gave birth to it may actually return. Chris Moore’s blog post at the end of the season said the series was probably over. But he tells Entertainment Weekly that “[Bravo] called me after the blog went up and said, ‘You know, Chris, we’re still thinking about it.'” But he’s pessimistic, adding, “All that means is right now, while everyone is paying attention, we don’t want to say we canceled it.” He says if the series returns, it’ll be changed somewhat. “I’m not saying Greenlight is dead forever, but the present configuration is over. I’m not the kind of person who has the balls to ask someone to pay for a TV show that no one watches.”

Too bad he’s not in charge of NBC.

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
