Reality show contestants left abandoned in woods after show canceled

A reality show set in the wilderness was canceled because of poor ratings, but no one told the contestants.

According to the Guardian, a group of 23 strangers “were brought to the remote west Highlands of Scotland to build a self-sufficient community away from technology and modern tools.” The show, called “Eden,” was to document their year-long experience.

But only four episodes of “Eden,” which debuted in July 2016, were aired before the show was pulled. 

At the time the show was pulled, 10 contestants remained. But according to E! News, no one informed those contestants of the news, and they were left abandoned with the belief that their experiences were being showed on television.

Those 10 people spent the year in the woods and continued to film their lives on handheld cameras.

The contestants missed important events that occurred during their isolation, including Brexit, the election of Donald Trump and the deaths of many celebrities, including British singer George Michael.

The show’s creator said the footage will air in some form later this year.

Review: 'Lola' is tough, gritty, graphic crime thriller

Melissa Scrivner Love's "Lola," her first novel, utilizes her television background and familiarity with law enforcement to craft a tough, gritty and graphic crime thriller.

Lola, who had a rough childhood, now lives with her boyfriend, Garcia, leader of a South Central Los Angeles gang called the Crenshaw Six. Every moment of every day feels both exhilarating and deadly to her. An opportunity for the gang to move up the social ladder of respectability and fear occurs when a Mexican drug cartel wants help recovering a lot of money and drugs. The leader of the group threatens to kill Lola if the contraband isn't retrieved.

In this world of gangs, street crime and vulnerability, Lola is not merely Garcia's woman or eye candy. She's the leader of the Crenshaw Six, and she's more ruthless than anyone can possibly imagine. She uses her brother as an example of the length she will go to show that a woman can be just as tough as a man, and create an even bigger empire.

The environment and neighborhood that Love creates on the page feels vivid and real. As a character who is strong, vibrant — and a true villain in every sense — Lola is the star of this tale. Although there are too many characters to juggle in the story, the focus on Lola and the people she surrounds herself with makes this one of the best written crime dramas to be published in quite some time.

Documentarian Ken Burns making film on Muhammad Ali

The late Muhammad Ali is getting the Ken Burns treatment.

The PBS documentarian announced Tuesday that he and two partners will make a two-part, four-hour film about the former heavyweight champ, who died last June. Burns, his daughter Sarah and David McMahon collaborated for a PBS documentary on Jackie Robinson that debuted last year.

The tentative plan is to air the Ali film in 2021.

Sarah Burns said the outpouring of good will at Ali's death made it easy to forget how divisive it was when the former Cassius Clay took the Ali name when he converted to Islam and refused to join the Army during the Vietnam War. She said filmmakers want to examine what influenced Ali's choices and how he stuck with them despite public condemnation.

Darlene Cates, the mother in 'Gilbert Grape,' dies at 69

  Darlene Cates, who played the housebound mother in the 1993 film "What's Eating Gilbert Grape," has died.

Cates died in her sleep Sunday morning at her home in Forney, Texas, according to her son-in-law, David Morgan. She was 69.

  Cates was cast in the film as the morbidly obese mother of Johnny Depp, in the title role, and his younger brother, played by Leonardo DiCaprio. She had been spotted by the film's screenwriter, Peter Hedges, while appearing on the "Sally Jessy Raphael" talk show, where she discussed her struggles with her weight.

The film, directed by Lasse Hallstrom, won acclaim for its sensitive portrayal of a troubled but loving family in a small Iowa town.

Cates later appeared on episodes of the series "Picket Fences" and "Touched By an Angel."
