KANDYSE MCCLURE reports from location in Iowa… shooting Stephen King’s CHILDREN OF THE CORN
What happens in the cornfield stays in the cornfield…Part One
No truer words have ever been spoken, especially when you’re doing a Stephen King remake in the middle of (choice expletive) Iowa.

GREETINGS FROM LA…
So far the new fall television season still seems to be a bit nebulous. Because of the condensed pilot season and writer’s strike last year it seems that everyone was trying to cram things, and they didn’t have the proper time to develop their shows. What we got was a lot of shows that are either retreads like KNIGHT RIDER or 90210 or remakes of shows shot in other countries like THE EX LIST and KATH & KIM. It is estimated that the writer’s strike lost the networks 33% of their business and this is pertaining to the juggernaut shows like: GREY’S ANATOMY and CSI. Yet the television season is business as usual, even though studio feature production is at a stand still. We can thank SAG for that. (click ‘more’ tab to continue reading) more
