Journalist Ann Curry is returning to PBS to tell the harrowing tales of survivors of major historical events.

The former “Today” show co-anchor, who was unceremoniously dismissed from her NBC post in 2012 and has remained relatively mum on the recent firing of her former costar Matt Lauer, is heading up “We’ll Meet Again,” a six-part historical series on PBS that premieres on Jan. 23.

Curry serves as executive producer and the main reporter on the program, which is co-produced by Blink Films and Ann Curry, Inc. The program explores some of history’s most dramatic events through the personal stories of those who experienced them, PBS said in a statement on Wednesday.

The impressive cinematic feat of Ridley Scott’s “All the Money in the World” has been undercut yet again by reports that Mark Wahlberg earned a whole lot more money than his costar Michelle Williams during reshoots of the film.

Looks like somebody figured out how Forbes’ highest-paid actor is making all the money in the world.

According to USA Today, Wahlberg reportedly negotiated a $1.5-million payout for the last-minute work on the drama, while Williams earned a meager per diem fee for her work — an estimated $80 each day.

Mark Hamill may be one with The Force, but he's taking on another franchise-building character in the go90-streamed animated series “Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy.” 

Hamill makes his debut as Megatronus (The Fallen), one of the thirteen original Primes, in the finale of the trilogy’s 10-episode second chapter, “Transformers: Titans Return,” released Tuesday.

Megatronus was exiled from Cybertron after murdering one of the other thirteen, Solus Prime, effectively becoming the first Decepticon. In the “Titans Return” finale, Hamill's Megatronus has a deadly showdown with one of the show’s beloved heroes.

This year marks the first time the ceremony will have an emcee, an honor that falls to actress Kristen Bell.

"She's not our first female host, she's our first host, period, and that says a lot," said Screen Actors Guild Awards committee member Elizabeth McLaughlin on Tuesday at the casting of the statuettes that will be given out at the Jan. 21 ceremony. "I think she's going to do an amazing job. She's hilarious and charming and smart, and I think she's really going to set the tone for the awards this year."

And that's not the only thing this year’s show will be doing different.

Taking it from social media into real life, Lana Del Rey spoke onstage about her escalating dispute with Radiohead over her song “Get Free” at a show in Denver Monday night.

Del Rey claims that the rock group has threatened legal action over the song, which bears some resemblance to its 1992 hit, “Creep.” Though it’s unclear what — if any — measures the band has taken, Del Rey has already posted on Twitter about the dispute, writing, “Although I know my song wasn’t inspired by ‘Creep,’ Radiohead feel it was and want 100% of the publishing.”

At Monday night’s show, Del Rey directly addressed the quarrel onstage and how it may affect future pressings of the album.
