Hollywood Highlights: Thursday June 27th


Demi Lovato plans to clear the air with her upcoming album.

On Tuesday, the songstress took to her Instagram Story to share a proclamation regarding the new music she’s making, which stated: “You know what’s great about making an album? You get to say anything you want, be as open and honest as possible and finally tell your side of the story regardless of who might not like it.” She followed that up with a shrugging emoji.

It’s unclear if the 26-year-old singer intends to share the events that led to her overdose last July on her seventh album, but, whatever territory she plans to explore, it’s a safe bet there will be revelations along the way.

On July 24, 2018, ET learned that Lovato had been transported to a hospital following an apparent overdose. Soon after, we learned she was “awake and responsive.” For months following her release from the hospital, she largely shied away from the spotlight.

David E. Kelley is returning once more to the court of legal dramas.

CBS has issued a series production commitment for “The Lincoln Lawyer,” with Kelley in position to pen and executive produce.

Based on the series of bestselling novels by Michael Connelly, the show hails from A+E Studios in association with CBSTV Studios. It will center around Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist who runs his law practice out of the back of his Lincoln Town Car, as he takes on cases big and small across the expansive city of Los Angeles.

Connelly’s original “The Lincoln Lawyer” novel, which came out in 2006, was adapted for the big screen in 2011 with Matthew McConaughey playing Haller. The Brad Furman film was a box office hit and also starred Marisa Tomei in the role of Haller’s ex-wife Maggie McPherson. There is yet no word on who will be playing the maverick criminal defense attorney in this new series.
