Telemundo Vying for Emmy; 'Avenue Q' Altered

Lisa • The Spanish-language network Telemundo is beginning its first Emmy campaign for "La Reina del Sur" ("Queen of the South") and the telenovela's star Kate del Castillo. No Spanish-language program has garnered an Emmy in any of the big categories. Read the story at The Hollywood Reporter.

• The Tony Award-winning musical "Avenue Q" will soon be licensed for school productions, but not without some changes. The show was known for having risqué and raunchy material, so Music Theatre International has worked with the musical's creators to make edits and new numbers. For example, the number "Internet is For Porn" has been swapped for "Social Life is Online." Same thing. Check it out at Playbill.

• Even though "Fast Five" and "Bridesmaids" are box office hits for Universal, the studio has had trouble finding buyers for their television rights. Los Angeles Times explained that films are rarely sold individually; rather, they are bought in a package. Potential buyers have qualms over purchasing box office flops, such as "Your Highness" and "The Dilemma," along with these two hits.

• To advertise its shows "White Collar" and "Covert Affairs," USA Network will air a trailer in 2,484 theathers throughout America this weekend reported Deadline. For those who think there are too many movie previews, you're welcome.
