Before we get all hot and bothered about Magic Mike, let’s take a moment to congratulate Channing Tatum on his Peabody Award honor. The star and wife Jenna Dewan-Tatum served as executive producers on the HBO documentary, Earth Made of Glass, which focused on the 1994 genocide in Rwanda.
Peabody Award winner Sir Patrick Stewart hosted the 71st Annual George Foster Peabody Awards in New York City, today (May 21) inside the historic Waldorf-Astoria on Park Avenue. Honoring 38 winners for excellence in electronic media for 2011, attendees included Parks and Recreation‘s Adam Scott and Amy Poehler, Alex Trebek, Fred Armisen, Lorne Michaels, Jonathan Krisel, Carrie Brownstein, Stephen Colbert, Deborah Scranton, and Reid Carolin.
Parks and Rec was just renewed for a fifth season, which is music to Jim O’Heir‘s ears (Jerry!). ”There’s never been a lot of breathing room with this show—we’re always waiting: ‘What’s gonna happen, what’s gonna happen?’” O’Heir told E! backstage. “Some shows—your Modern Family—they know they’ve got two years, three years. We’ve never had that. So to get that call—’We wanna do season five’—hell, yeah!”
