Injured 'Hobbit' Workers; Jane Lynch Hosting Emmys?

Jane • Two people were hurt in an "explosion" on the set of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit." The individuals went to the hospital and reportedly had minor injuries. Read the story at The New York Times.

• It's another technical malfunction for "Spider-Man," but not the one you think. Though Broadway's "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has suffered several breakdowns and injuries, the upcoming Hollywood film "The Amazing Spider-Man" had its own bout of bad luck. For three hours today, three production workers were stuck on a crane six stories above the New York set. Check it out at New York Post.

Deadline reported that Fox wants "Glee" co-star Jane Lynch to host this year's Emmy Awards. Lynch has done well hosting the network's upfront presentation for the past two years. She also has experience as a comedian and singer. The ceremony airs this September on Fox.

Variety looks at whether or not the poor performance of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" in 3-D theaters means people don't want to see every single movie in three dimensions. Say it ain't so.

• Amid the news NYC Opera is looking for a new venue, Lincoln Center's New York City Ballet announced its 2011-2012 schedule. Read it at The New York Times.

• The History Channel and reality-tv producer Mark Burnett are making a 10-hour series based on the stories of The Bible. Billed as a "docudrama," it will be a scripted program. Earlier this year, History refused to air the scripted mini-series "The Kennedys" because it wasn't accurate enough and didn't fit the History brand. According to The New York Times, this History series will not try to put any historical context to Biblical events.
