R. Kelly faces federal kidnapping, child sex, racketeering charges

Less than a day after he was arrested for charges in Chicago, singer R. Kelly was faced with five new charges in New York City Friday that accuse him of racketeering, kidnapping, forced labor and sexual exploitation of a child.

Prosecutors said Kelly and his entourage recruited women and girls at concerts and other venues to "engage in illegal sexual activity." Kelly is the only person named in Friday's indictment. He's also accused of having sex with women younger than 18 and not disclosing a sexually transmitted disease. He also produced child pornography by asking minors to send him photos, prosecutors said.

"Today that comes to an end," U.S. Attorney Richard Donoghue said in New York City Friday. "This indictment makes clear that neither fame, power nor status will not shield from prosecution predators who victimize members of our communities for their own sexual gratification."

Officials said Friday's charges supersede a 13-count indictment unsealed in Chicago Thursday night. Those accused the singer of child pornography and obstructing justice.

The U.S. Attorney in Chicago said the 52-year-old R&B singer was arrested by local and federal authorities in New York Thursday.

Prosecutors said the accusations against the singer began in 1999.

Born Robert Sylvester Kelly, R. Kelly pleaded not guilty in June to felony charges of sex abuse involving four women, a couple of whom were underage. He was acquitted after a separate child pornography case in 2008.

'How to Get Away With Murder' to end with Season 6

ABC announced on Thursday that How to Get Away With Murder starring Viola Davis will be ending with Season 6.

The sixth and final season is set to premiere on Sept. 26 at 10 p.m. ET. ABC released a teaser trailer for Season 6 that hints at a violent conclusion for the crime drama series.

Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Matt McGorry, Aja Naomi King, Charlie Weber, Liza Weil, Conrad Ricamora, Rome Flynn, Amirah Vann, Karla Souza and Timothy Hutton also star.

How to Get Away With Murder hails from creator and showrunner Pete Nowalk. Shonda Rhimes executive produces through her Shondaland production company.

"Viola Davis made television history with her unforgettable portrayal of iconic female anti-hero Annalise Keating," ABC entertainment president Karey Burke said in a statement.

"I am eternally grateful to her, Pete Nowalk and Shondaland for creating and bringing to life such a smart, sophisticated and groundbreaking series that has long been an integral part of Thursday nights on ABC."

How to Get Away With Murder, Grey's Anatomy and Station 19 are the three remaining Shondaland dramas on ABC after Rhimes signed a new deal with Netflix.

Mattel releases David Bowie-themed Barbie

Mattel released on Thursday a new Barbie doll based on late singer David Bowie.

The collectible doll, which can be purchased for $50, pays homage to Bowie's iconic Ziggy Stardust persona from the 1970s.

The Barbie, designed by Linda Kyaw, is dressed in Ziggy Stardust's metallic red and black space suit, red platform boots, red hair and forehead emblem.

"Musician, artist, icon. Introducing #Barbie as #DavidBowie, the pioneer of sound and vision whose music continues to show the world how to reach for the stars!" Mattel said on Twitter.

Bowie died of liver cancer in January 2016 at the age of 69.

Mattel is teaming up with Warner Bros. to release a live-action Barbie film starring Margot Robbie in the lead role.

Jon Favreau describes great pressure to live up to original 'Lion King'

Filmmaker Jon Favreau said on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he felt pressure directing Disney's remake of The Lion King to live up to the original film.

"A film like this, you feel a sense of responsibility to the original filmmakers, you feel a sense of responsibility to the fans who grew up with it, you feel a responsibility to new audiences who are seeing it, to the cast that trusts you," Favreau said Thursday.

"So this was a film where there was more pressure than I've ever felt before."

Favreau said the filmmakers behind the original 1994 Lion King attended the premiere and seemed to like his version, which was a relief.

Favreau's The Lion King, which features photo-realistic graphics, is set to arrive in theaters on July 19.

Donald Glover, Beyonce, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Billy Eichner, Seth Rogen, John Oliver, Keegan-Michael Key, Eric Andre, Florence Kasumba, JD McCrary and Shahadi Wright Joseph star.

Favreau also discussed his upcoming Star Wars television series, The Mandalorian, which will stream on Disney+ in November.

"It's after Return of the Jedi, so the empire is gone and all hell is breaking loose in the outer rim," Favreau said about the show, which follows the adventures of a bounty hunter.

"Once you take out the rule of law, what happens? Chaos takes over," he said.

Which former 'Friends' star is joining the new series based on 'Last Chance U'?

Courteney Cox will star in a new series based on the Netflix docuseries Last Chance U.

Entertainment Weekly confirmed Thursday the 55-year-old actress will star in and executive produce the new scripted show for Spectrum Originals.

Deadline said Cox will play Brittany Wagner, the former academic advisor at East Mississippi Community College who worked to help struggling athletes realize their fullest potential.

Last Chance U premiered on Netflix in 2016 and will debut its fourth season July 19. The series follows the coaches, players and staff at a top community college football team -- East Mississippi Community College in Seasons 1 and 2 and Independence Community College in Season 3.

The new show will mark Cox's first series regular role since Jules Cobb on Cougar Town, which ended in March 2015. Spectrum Originals' slate also includes L.A.'s Finest with Gabrielle Union and Jessica Alba, and a Mad About You revival.

Cox is known for playing Monica Geller on the NBC series Friends. She reunited with former co-stars Jennifer Aniston and Lisa Kudrow in June after Aniston discussed the possibility of a revival.
