TLC will offer a tough-love model reality show, hosted by tsunami survivor Petra Nemcova. So when walking in high heels proves too much for the hopefuls, they’ll have to listen to her story about having survived hell and high water to make it to the catwalk. Tommy Mottola, a force of nature himself, and Dave Broome (Biggest Loser) will EP.

The WGA has assembled an all-star team to negoiate their new contract. Marc Cherry, Bill Condon, Susannah Grant and 15 others will hammer out the terms. A committee of bigshots should mean all parties concerned will take this very seriously. New media reuse rights and what WGA members can get paid for those will be an important issue. Right now, they get bupkis.

Adam Sandler will star as a reluctant Mossad agent in You Don’t Mess With the Zohan, written by Sandler, Judd Apatow, Robert Smigel. Sandler’s character fakes his own death so he can move to the Apple and become a hair stylist. But is it good for the Jews?
