Groupon is ready for its prime-time close-up. CBS is picking up "Friend Me," a sitcom about two friends who move to LA to work for the daily deals website. Christopher Mintz-Plasse, who played McLovin in "Superbad," will star.
Warner Bros. finally had enough of Sheen's antics. The producers figured that the show's star -- who was reportedly paid nearly $2 million an episode --- was no longer worth the considerable trouble he created. Still, the move is a financial risk.
Whether Sheen can resurrect his faltering career may depend on something as mundane as an insurance physical. Hollywood producers won't shoot a frame of film nor a second of video without insurance policies on their cast members in case they can't do their jobs.
