  • Danity Kane singer Aubrey O’Day will star in her own reality TV show on Oxygen. The Aubrey O’Day Project will follow the singer as she attempts to forge a comeback in the music industry. Looks like Diddy’s getting more cheesecake! [THR]
  • Borat and Brüno director Larry Charles will helm Pierre Pierre, a comedy starring Jim Carrey as a Frenchman who carts a stolen painting to London from Paris. Très genial! [Deadline]
  • CBS Films and Sony Pictures have acquired It Takes a Village, a Keenen Ivory Wayans project about a woman who must prove to a South Pacific tribe that she has what it takes to adopt one of the tribe’s children. [Insert tired Bradgelina joke here.] [Deadline]

  • The Science Channel has ordered a second season of Through the Wormhole With Morgan Freeman, the series that “asks questions that ponder the ‘deepest mysteries of existence.’” I’m not watching until they tackle this. [Variety]
