NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 In bid to fight art fraud, Sotheby's announced Monday that it had purchased a forensics firm whose founder once helped the auction house belatedly identify a $10 million painting as a fake.

Sotheby's said that Orion Analytical, based in Williamstown, Massachusetts, will be folded into the company and its founder, the artist, conservator and forensic scientist James Martin, will lead a new scientific research department charged with making sure the works the auction house deals with are authentic.

The purchase comes amid a number of recent art forgeries in the art world, including a supposed Old Master painting that was sold by Sotheby's to an art collector for $10 million in a private sale in 2011.

In March of this year, Sotheby's declared \"Portrait of a Man\" by Frans Hals a fake after questions arose about its authenticity. An in-depth technical analysis by Orion, reviewed by another conservation scientist, confirmed the suspicion. The forger remains unknown.

Sotheby's said Monday that the acquisition of Orion and Martin's appointment would add to collectors' confidence in the auction house.

Martin, who founded Orion Analytical in 1990, has analyzed the chemical and structural composition of disputed artworks for clients around the world, including private collectors, museums, galleries and the FBI.

\"Rather than being retained on a series of one-off assignments when issues arise, Jamie will be establishing a set of protocols to determine which works should be examined proactively, as well as training our specialist staff to identify potential issues, placing us in a position to provide even greater service to our clients,\" in the areas of art, objects and wine, Sotheby's said.

New York art attorney Peter Stern called Sotheby's move \"brilliant\" and said Martin was \"one of the most highly respected art analysts in the world.\"

Among his nearly 2,000 investigations, Martin examined the paintings in a sensational art fraud case involving the once highly respected Knoedler & Company, a Manhattan gallery accused of selling forged fakes of modern masters like Jackson Pollock and Mark Rothko for millions of dollars.

The 150-year-old gallery closed in 2011. The bogus paintings, created by a Chinese immigrant in New York City, were sold between 1994 and 2011. The civil trial ended in a settlement in February. The terms were not disclosed.

\"Knoedler's lesson may well be that art attorneys need to educate clients who are buying artworks to require warranties relating to authenticity,\" Chicago-based art attorney Scott Hodes said. \"The Orion Analytical acquisition has spotlighted this need.\"

\"Sotheby's will definitely be in a better position than its competition to detect forgeries,\" he added.

Artworks have long been authenticated based on provenance, style, and paint pigments. But in an art market where buyers think nothing of spending several millions of dollars on one piece of art, scientific examination that uses state-of-the-art technical imaging, molecular analysis, magnified visual inspection and other sophisticated methods, adds another layer of assurance that a work is real. It also can protect buyers and sellers from monetary losses and protect the integrity of artists and their works.

Martin has taught at The Getty Conservation Institute and The Smithsonian's Museum Conservation Institute and will continue to teach and consult with museums and conservators as part of his work at Sotheby's.

\"The range of works offered by Sotheby's, as well as the breadth of existing expertise and experience, provides for a unique opportunity to leverage my capabilities across the company's global platform,\" Martin said in a statement.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) \u2014 Damaging testimony that Bill Cosby gave in an accuser's lawsuit, including admissions that he gave young women drugs and alcohol before sex, can be used at his sex assault trial, a judge ruled Monday.

The defense has insisted Cosby testified only after being promised he would never be charged over his 2004 encounter with accuser Andrea Constand. But his lawyers at the time never had an immunity agreement or put anything in writing.

\"This court concludes that there was neither an agreement nor a promise not to prosecute, only an exercise of prosecutorial discretion,\" Montgomery County Judge Steven O'Neill wrote in his ruling.

Cosby, 79, acknowledged in the 2006 deposition that he had a string of extramarital relationships. He called them consensual, but many of the women say they were drugged and molested. Cosby, questioned about the 2004 encounter at his home with Constand, described being on his couch and putting his hand down her pants.

\"I don't hear her say anything. And I don't feel her say anything. And so I continue and I go into the area that is somewhere between permission and rejection. I am not stopped,\" he said in his testimony.

Prosecutors describe Constand as being semiconscious after Cosby gave her three unmarked blue pills for stress that night. The release of the deposition testimony last year prompted them to reopen her 2005 police complaint and arrest Cosby days before the statute of limitations expired. O'Neill has vowed to try the case by June.

The ruling on the deposition is one of two key pretrial issues that will determine the scope of the evidence against Cosby. The other question is how many other accusers will be allowed to testify in prosecutors' attempt to show a pattern of similar conduct. Prosecutors hope to call 13 additional women who say they were assaulted by Cosby as far back as the 1960s. Two days of arguments on that issue are set for next week.

At a pretrial hearing earlier this year, O'Neill said that Cosby's decision to testify at the deposition could have been strategic. The actor \u2014 known as America's Dad for his top-rated family sitcom, \"The Cosby Show,\" which ran from 1984 to 1992 \u2014 could have invoked his Fifth Amendment right not to incriminate himself. But jurors would have heard of that decision if the case went to trial.

Cosby instead settled Constand's lawsuit, for an undisclosed amount, after finishing four days of testimony about his extramarital affairs, his friendship with Constand and other topics.

In another excerpt, Cosby described a phone call with Constand's mother a year later, when he refused to say what the pills were.

\"I'm not going to argue with somebody's mother who is accusing me of something,\" he testified. \"And I'm apologizing because I'm thinking this is a dirty old man with a young girl. I apologized. I said to the mother it was digital penetration.\"

Cosby also described getting seven prescriptions for quaaludes in the 1970s, which he said he kept on hand to give women he hoped to seduce, \"the same as a person would say, 'Have a drink.'\"

Constand had met Cosby at Temple University when she managed the women's basketball team. He was a prominent booster and university trustee. She went to police in 2005 to report that he had sexually assaulted her a year earlier after taking what Cosby described as an herbal product. Constand, then 30, was dating a woman at the time and had no romantic interest in the 66-year-old Cosby, her lawyer has said.

District Attorney Kevin Steele called the ruling on the deposition an important development in the 12-year-old case.

\"Allowing the jury to hear Mr. Cosby's deposition testimony is another step forward in this case and will aid the jury in making its determination. It's important that we are able to present all of the evidence available,\" Steele said.

Defense lawyer Brian McMonagle had no comment on the decision.

The defense will fight strenuously to block the testimony of the other women, arguing that their accounts are vague, decades old and impossible to defend. Cosby's lawyers had hoped to question the women in person to assess their credibility and relevance, but O'Neill rejected the idea.

Defense lawyers also say Cosby is legally blind and can no longer recognize his accusers or help his legal team prepare for trial.

Constand, 43, is now a massage therapist in her native Ontario. She signed off on the decision by prosecutors to reopen the case. The Associated Press does not typically name people who say they are sexual assault victims, but Constand has given permission for her name to be used.

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 Former \"Daily Show\" correspondent Jessica Williams flexes her dramatic chops, Cate Blanchett pays homage to great 20th century artists and \"Silicon Valley\" star Kumail Nanjiani tells a very personal story in some of the films premiering at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.

Festival programmers announced their selections for the documentary and narrative premiere sections Monday, which has launched films like \"Boyhood,\" ''Manchester by the Sea\" and \"O.J.: Made in America.\"

As with many years, the Sundance premiere slate can be a place for well-known comedians to take a stab at more dramatic and serious roles.

In what's expected to be one of the breakout films and performances of the festival, comedian Jessica Williams stars in Jim Strouse's \"The Incredible Jessica James,\" about a New York playwright recovering from a breakup and finding solace in a recent divorcee.

Nanjiani is another who might surprise audiences in \"The Big Sick,\" which he co-wrote with his wife Emily V. Gordon and is based on their own courtship. He stars alongside Zoe Kazan in the Michael Showalter-directed pic.

The Festival also has films featuring veteran stars in different kinds of roles. Shirley MacLaine stars in \"The Last Word,\" about a retired businesswoman who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a journalist (Amanda Seyfried) after writing her own obituary. Festival founder Robert Redford, too, is in Charlie McDowell's \"The Discovery,\" about a world where the afterlife has been proven. Jason Segel and Rooney Mara also star.

Cate Blanchett re-enacts artistic statements of Dadaists, Lars von Trier and everyone in between in \"Manifesto\"; Michelle Pfeiffer and Kiefer Sutherland co-star in the drama \"Where is Kyra\"; and \"Avengers\" Jeremy Renner and Elizabeth Olsen re-team in the FBI crime thriller \"Wind River,\" the directorial debut of \"Hell or High Water\" writer Taylor Sheridan.

\"Bessie\" director Dee Rees is also poised to be a standout with \"Mudbound,\" a racial drama set in the post-WWII South and starring Carey Mulligan, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell and Mary J. Blige.

\"It's quite topical to this time even though it's a period piece,\" said Festival Director John Cooper.

Among the documentaries premiering are a look at the Oklahoma City bombing from Barak Goodman; Stanley Nelson's examination of black colleges and universities, \"Tell Them We Are Rising\"; and Barbara Kopple's account of a champion diver who announces he is transgender, \"This Is Everything: Gigi Gorgeous.\"

\"The beauty of independent film is it's not a copycat world, unlike some of the Hollywood stuff where they follow trends,\" said Programming Director Trevor Groth. \"Independent film has always been about originality and choice and something different.\"

The 2017 Sundance Film Festival runs from Jan. 19 through Jan. 29.

CHENNAI, India (AP) \u2014 Jayaram Jayalalithaa, the hugely popular south Indian actress who later turned to politics and became the highest elected official in the state of Tamil Nadu, died Monday. She was 68.

The Apollo Hospital in the southern Indian city of Chennai said Jayalalithaa died at 11:30 p.m. local time Monday after undergoing surgery following a heart attack on Sunday night.

Known by her followers as \"Amma,\" which means \"Mother\" in the Tamil language, Jayalalithaa inspired intense loyalty among film fans and political supporters alike.

As news of her death spread, thousands of people thronged the road long past midnight to watch as the ambulance carrying her body from the hospital to her home sped by in a motorcade. Police had a hard time controlling people from rushing onto the road. Many people wept and beat their breasts overcome by grief.

Earlier Monday, thousands of Jayalalithaa's supporters, wailing and crying, gathered outside the hospital to pray for her recovery. Police were deployed across the state to ensure security out of fear that her death could trigger widespread violence and riots.

The neighboring state of Karnataka stopped public buses from traveling to Tamil Nadu after one of its buses was attacked Monday.

The U.S. Consulate in Chennai put out an advisory urging Americans to be careful in the city and avoid large crowds.

The Tamil Nadu government declared a seven-day mourning period beginning Tuesday. Schools, colleges, offices and businesses were to be closed for the next three days, which have been designated a public holiday in the South Indian state.

Her body will be taken Tuesday to a public hall in Chennai to allow people to pay their respects. The date and time of her funeral has not yet been announced as the state government needed time to put in place security arrangements to handle the hundreds of thousands of people who are expected to attend.

Within hours of Jayalalithaa's death, her trusted lieutenant, O. Panneerselvam, was sworn in as chief minister of the state.

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was \"deeply saddened\" by Jayalalithaa's death. \"Her demise has left a huge void in Indian politics,\" Modi tweeted.

Jayalalithaa's body would be kept in a public hall in Chennai for people to pay their respects. The date and time of her funeral had not been announced as the state government put security arrangements in place to control the hundreds of thousands of people who are expected to attend the funeral.

Jayalalithaa had already been in the hospital for two months since Sept. 22, when she was admitted with a fever, dehydration and a respiratory infection.

At the time, thousands of people prayed and fasted outside the hospital for her recovery. Doctors barred visitors, sparking rumors that they were withholding bad news out of fear it could trigger the same outpouring of grief, riots and suicides that followed the death of Jayalalithaa's political and acting mentor, M.G. Ramachandran.

Jayalalithaa was kept on a ventilator in the intensive care unit for weeks, doctors said. She also suffered from diabetes.

Jayalalithaa was 13 when she began her film career and quickly became known as a romantic lead in many of the nearly 150 Tamil-language movies that she worked on.

She entered politics in the early 1980s, under the guidance of Ramachandran. Soon after his death in 1987, she declared herself his political heir and took control of the All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhgam party.

She served as Tamil Nadu's chief minister, the highest elected position in the state of 71 million people, for nearly 14 years over five terms beginning in 1991. She regained her office last year after a corruption case against her was overturned. Her supporters praised her efforts in fighting rural poverty with handouts like laptop computers for students, cows and goats for farmers, and spice grinders for homemakers.

Such free gifts are commonly used by Indian political parties in courting voters, but her handouts were still criticized by some as wasteful pandering and unfair bribery. But Jayalalithaa defended the giveaways as welfare measures aimed at helping the poor.

She herself was known for leading an extravagant lifestyle. In 1997, police found more than 10,000 saris and 750 pairs of shoes after raiding her home as part of a corruption investigation.

In the first half of 2014, Jayalalithaa made a bid to become India's prime minister job by saying she would form a coalition in New Delhi if no party dominated elections. But the Bharatiya Janata Party won a clear majority, catapulting Narendra Modi into the nation's top job.

Later that year, she was forced to step down as chief minister in Tamil Nadu state when she was sentenced to four years in prison for amassing more than $10 million during her political career, a wealth the court said was disproportionate to her income.

She spent 21 days behind bars before the Indian Supreme Court released her on bail. In May 2015, an appeals court overturned the corruption charges, clearing the way for her return to power. She returned to office as chief minister on May 23 and a month later was re-elected in a by-election.

Jayalalithaa was born in 1948 in the village of Melukote, in what is now the state of Karnataka. Her birth name was Jayalalitha, but she reportedly added an \"a'' on advice from a numerologist.

Her lawyer father, also named Jayaram, died when she was 2, prompting her mother to learn shorthand and typing so she could work in a clerical position to support the family and put Jayalalithaa and her brother through school. Her brother died in the early 1990s.

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) \u2014 Luis Carlos Montalvan, a decorated Iraq war veteran who became a strong critic of the war and wrote a best-selling book about it, has died in El Paso. He was 43.

Montalvan was found in a hotel room in downtown El Paso late Friday, El Paso police Sgt. Enrique Carrillo said Monday.

The medical examiner's office has not completed a preliminary autopsy report.

Montalvan served 17 years in the Army, doing two tours in Iraq. He received two Bronze Stars and the Purple Heart.

His service dog, Tuesday, was the subject of Montalvan's book, which became a New York Times best seller.

Some Army colleagues said Montalvan, who retired from the Army as a captain in 2007, embellished his account of the incident that led to his Purple Heart.

Tuesday is now being cared for by a loving family in the Northeast, according to a statement from Montalvan's family.

\"He was an extremely dedicated activist nationwide for multiple causes, including rights and benefits of veterans and the disabled, as well as the promotion of service dogs,\" the statement reads. \"His spirit lives on through his family and friends, Tuesday, his writings, and all the people he touched during his years of service to his country and his humanitarian work.\"

Montalvan's book, \" UNTIL TUESDAY: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him,\" was praised by Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota, made him a leading advocate for wounded veterans and even led to an interview on David Letterman's show. But several men who served with him told The Associated Press in 2011 that he had exaggerated or fabricated key events from his service abroad. The AP also obtained documents that contradicted Montalvan's statements about the extent and severity of his injuries.

Montalvan, who earned his bachelor's degree at the University of Maryland \u2014 College Park and a master's degree from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism, declined to speak with the AP at the time, but issued a statement through his lawyer that his book \"is a reflection of my experiences in the United States Army (and after) during one of the most controversial military actions since the Vietnam War. Some of the events described in 'Until Tuesday' resulted in wounds to myself \u2014 both visible and invisible.\"

Hachette Book Group, which published his first book and will publish his second, \"TUESDAY'S PROMISE: One Veteran, One Dog, and Their Bold Quest to Change Lives,\" said in a statement that it was \"deeply saddened\" at Montalvan's death.

\"With his beloved service dog Tuesday at his side, Luis spent the past decade educating the public about trauma and advocating for veterans and people with disabilities,\" the statement reads. \"He will be missed greatly and our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time.\"

The organization that united Montalvan with Tuesday has set up a webpage in his honor. Donations can be made at www.ecad1.org/Luis .

BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) \u2014 Two doors from the first store owned by Wal-Mart founder Sam Walton have been donated to the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History in Washington and The Walmart Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas.

The doors from Walton's first shop, opened in 1945 in Newport, Arkansas, were stored for years by Ivy Brother Construction co-owner Gene Ivy, who renovated the store in the 1960s, according to the Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/2gZed0P ).

The doors were a great find because nothing else was kept from the first store owned by the man who started the world's largest retailer, said Alan Dranow, senior director of the Wal-Mart Heritage Group.

One door, its frame scattered with scratches and nicks from use, is currently on display in an illuminated case at the Arkansas museum.

\"It means that the very beginning of Sam's journey is represented here,\" Dranow said.

Ivy stored the doors in his business' warehouse until his retirement, and later moved them to his garage. After he died in 2014, his family decided to donate the doors to the museums.

\"This just seemed like where they needed to be since this is where (Walton) started,\" Ivy's daughter Terri Ramsey said.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) \u2014 The Guthrie Theater has reported a modest surplus under its new artistic director.

The Tony Award-winning Minneapolis theater reported Monday it finished the fiscal year with an operating surplus of $47,408 on a budget of $28 million.

In a statement, artistic director Joseph Haj said he is \"incredibly proud\" of his inaugural season at the Guthrie and \"so moved\" by the community's response. Haj took over last year from Joe Dowling, who had only one year with a deficit in his 20-year tenure.

The Guthrie reported its highest grossing revenue for a production in its 53-year history, with Rodgers and Hammerstein's \"South Pacific,\" directed by Haj, playing to 97 percent capacity.

The season had 29 productions and 578 performances across three stages. Despite a decrease in the number of performances from the previous year, the Guthrie saw a slight growth in attendance, bringing total attendance to 380,108.

LONDON (AP) \u2014 Helen Marten, who turns the detritus of everyday life into sculpture, has won the prestigious Turner Prize for art.

Marten was named winner of the 25,000-pound (US$32,000) award at London's Tate Britain gallery on Monday.

The judges praised the \"poetic and enigmatic qualities\" of Marten's work, made from found objects including nails, shoe soles, cotton buds and bicycle chains.

Marten, 30, hailed the three other \"brilliant and exciting\" finalists \u2014 Anthea Hamilton, Michael Dean and Josephine Pryde.

Founded in 1984 and given annually to a Britain-based artist under 50, the prize often sparks heated debate about the value of modern art.

Named for 19th-century landscape painter J.M.W. Turner, the award has helped make stars of potter Grayson Perry, shark pickler Damien Hirst and \"12 Years a Slave\" director Steve McQueen.

WASHINGTON (AP) \u2014 First lady Michelle Obama will talk about her time in the White House during an interview with Oprah Winfrey that will air Dec. 19 on CBS.

The network says Mrs. Obama will talk about her legacy as first lady and what's in store for her future. CBS is billing the event as Mrs. Obama's final one-on-one interview inside the White House.

While there has been much speculation about what the first lady will do after leaving office, the president has discounted a life in politics. He told Rolling Stone magazine that \"you can see the incredible resonance she has with the American people. But I joke that she's too sensible to want to be in politics.\"

Childish Gambino, \"Awaken, My Love!\" (Glassnote Records)

It's OK not to \"get\" Childish Gambino's third studio album \"Awaken, My Love!\" With its lush soundscapes and sparse lyrics, one can only gather that the funk-drenched latest release from the multi-talented Donald Glover is a collection that is to be felt first and understood second \u2014 if understanding is possible at all.

Outstanding first single \"Me and Your Mama\" and equally arresting follow-up track \"Redbone\" are the easiest to digest of the 11-song set. Twinkling chimes and a haunting chorus give way to fiery electric guitar and crashing drums on the former, while Gambino coos and cries out in his falsetto across the swaggering production of the latter.

Both were produced by Gambino's longtime collaborator and Swedish music composer Ludwig Goransson, who has a hand in the majority of the tracks. But Gambino and Goransson's latest project together is nothing like the previous albums and mixtapes. The cartoonish production and silly wordplay are gone. Instead of rapping, Gambino sings from the gut, sounding like Rick James on the spine-tingling \"Zombies,\" featuring up-and-coming singer-rapper Kari Faux.

\"They can smell your money, and they want your soul,\" Gambino sings, in a warning that could easily be about the music industry or Hollywood \u2014 the \"Atlanta\" show creator and music artist knows both. His voice is ghoulish on the uplifting Parliament-Funkadelic-inspired \"Have Some Love\" and desperate on the chaotic \"Riot,\" which includes in its credits members of the legendary funk collective.

Gambino channels an easier 70s vibe on \"Baby Boy.\" (Think: Sly and the Family Stone.) \"Little hands, little feet, tiny heart, tiny beat,\" he sings before pleading, \". don't take him away.\"

It's easy to get lost in the music, with one psychedelic-tinged track washing into another. That is, with the exception of the beachy, annoyingly catchy and slightly out of place \"California.\" Gambino pushes the limits of his sound on \"Awaken, My Love!\" and while it's not all smooth sailing, it's a trippy ride worth taking.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. (AP) \u2014 In the steadily escalating battle of the TV musicals, NBC's \"Hairspray Live!\" is the most ambitious contender yet.

It's got a deep bench of stars, including Kristin Chenoweth, Jennifer Hudson, Ariana Grande and Martin Short. It boasts strong themes of racial equality, tolerance and self-acceptance. And it has the outsized, joyful talents of Harvey Fierstein as writer and actor, reprising his Tony Award-winning role as Edna Turnblad.

Executive producer Neil Meron also counts the TV musical's timing as a bonus, calling it impeccable despite its 1960s setting and roots in John Waters' 1988 film and, more directly, in the 2002-09 Broadway musical with Fierstein.

\"People already were excited about it, but after the election they were saying, 'Boy, do we need this now,'\" Meron said recently on a Universal Studios set as the cast rehearsed \"I Can Hear the Bells\" for Wednesday's telecast (8-11 p.m. EST).

With the country in a \"divisive place,\" he said, viewers are eager for entertainment \"that can be really healing.\"

\"Hairspray Live!\" is set in 1962 Baltimore, where \"The Corny Collins Show\" is TV's hot dance program and the focus of teen Tracy Turnblad's dreams. When she's chosen to perform and gains instant celebrity, the plus-sized dynamo uses it to fight the show's whites-only rule.

Tracy is played by Maddie Baillio, 20, of League City, Texas, a college student plucked from more than 1,300 hopefuls in an open-casting call for her first professional role. Short plays husband to Fierstein's supportive wife and mother.

The cast includes Derek Hough as Collins; Grande as Tracy's pal Penny; Hudson as record-store owner Motormouth Maybelle; Ephraim Sykes as her son, Seaweed; Chenoweth and Dove Cameron as mean mom-daughter duo Velma and Amber Von Tussle, and Garrett Clayton as Link, Tracy's squeeze. Two former \"Hairspray\" Tracys, Ricki Lake (the movie) and Marissa Jaret Winokur (the play), are set for cameo appearances.

Among the catchy songs sure to rattle around in viewers' brains for days: \"Good Morning Baltimore\" and \"You Can't Stop the Beat.\"

The production is big (55 cast members, 600 costumes, 18 sets) and sprawling, designed to shift between the confines of two Universal Studios soundstages and a variety of backlot locations. It's also got an element of risk, following other recent musicals that aired live to ramp up the excitement factor (and keep viewers tuning into broadcast networks and commercials).

The TV musical competition is both intra- and intermural: The bar for \"Hairspray Live!\" was set at varying heights by NBC's \"Sound of Music,\" ''Peter Pan\" and \"The Wiz\" broadcasts. \"The Wiz\" aired live in 2015, as did this year's \"Grease\" on competitor Fox, and \"Hairspray\" plucked its pair of directors, Kenny Leon and Alex Rudzinski, from those respective telecasts. Jerry Mitchell, who choreographed the Broadway musical, also is aboard.

The \"Hairspray\" producers have \"certainly upped the ante,\" said Hough. \"The people who are part of this, including some who worked on 'Grease' as well, they want to try to top themselves.\"

Exactly, said Meron, who is producing \"Hairspray Live!\" with Craig Zadan. The partners also produced the 2007 movie version of the stage musical, with Nikki Blonsky as Tracy and John Travolta as Edna.

While \"Grease\" made creative use of backlot locations, Meron said the \"Hairspray\" plan is to spend more of the show, about 40 percent, outdoors on the lot.

That will include mundane facades transformed into a colorful Baltimore downtown, one that happens to be in sight of the clock tower featured in \"Back to the Future.\" Neon signs advertise businesses including Waters Plumbing, a bow to the story's free-thinking originator, and Divine Pet Food. That honors the original film's Edna, the late Divine (Harris Glenn Milstead), who set the template for a male to own the role.

As with \"The Wiz,\" which starred newcomer Shanice Williams, \"Hairspray\" is rolling the dice with Baillio. But Fierstein says it's no gamble.

She \"has a voice that is just wonderful. ... She's excited about life. She's excited to do this,\" he told a teleconference, adding, \"it's given me a whole new light to have this terrific new young star.\"

Fierstein showed plenty of spark on the set recently, interrupting an interview to playfully admonish a group of boisterous cast members on break.

\"Don't make me come over there!\" he shouted. Turning serious, the stage veteran said the demands of the TV musical, including learning to remain aware of multiple cameras, have proved a challenge.

\"In the theater, I'm in charge of telling the audience where to look and what's important. Here, you need to very much give up all control\" except over one's own performance, Fierstein said.

Director Leon explained that the production \"is not theater, it's not TV, it's not a film \u2014 it's a hybrid of all of that. That's half the problem, understanding that. So we have to take this team of actors, get them in the same world, and present it in a way so that the viewers at home feel they are the live audience.\"

What they'll discover in \"Hairspray,\" said Baillio, are themes that are as relevant as ever.

\"One of the things I love about Tracy is her body positivity, and that she sees everyone as equal and believes everyone should be dancing together on 'The Corny Collins Show' and in life,\" said the sophomore at Marymount Manhattan College in New York. \"It's bold to say, but I hope it changes opinions.\"

NEW YORK \u2014 Almost 30 years since \"thirtysomething\" went off the air, the now 50-something cast of the drama about a group of American baby boomers remain friends.

Mel Harris, who played Hope Steadman on the show, says she and cast mates Ken Olin, Timothy Busfield, Patricia Wettig, Polly Draper, Melanie Mayron and Peter Horton bonded while making the show, which aired on ABC from 1987 through 1991.

\"We were also there for each other as co-workers, as friends and that bond has continued outside of it. Do we have dinner every Friday night together? No, which would be a hoot, but I would say every few years we get together. We see each other. \"

Harris says she just recently ran into Olin in Vancouver, Canada, where she's filming the Hulu series, \"Shut Eye.\"

\"We went to dinner. It was just lovely.\"

The new series, which begins streaming on Dec. 7, is about fake fortune teller Charlie Haverford, played by Jeffrey Donavon (\"Burn Notice\"), who starts having real visions after suffering a severe head trauma.

Harris plays Nadine Davies, a wealthy socialite and one of Haverford's marks.

\"It's her second bout with psychics,\" Harris says. \"They're very good at getting her to trust them in the face of, 'Oh, I've already been burned once,' and in the course of the journey when she realizes that maybe she can't trust them. It's an awakening event for Nadine Davies.\"

The role marks the first regular one in almost a decade for Harris who in recent years has been focusing on fixing up old houses and working on TV pilots with her writing partner and husband Bob Brush. She decided to take on \"Shut Eye\" after Brush took a break from writing pilots to work on a book.

Harris says she's not sure yet if she'll continue acting when her writing partner frees up but says for the moment she's having fun.

\"Otherwise, I wouldn't do it thirty-something years later.\"
