He gave me a lot of freedom, and over the years we became friends. He was very proud of Knight Rider. With Knight Rider, we had a great statistic: We had more viewers per family than anyone except The Cosby Show... He never got the respect that he wanted or deserved. In his heyday, he had seven shows on the air at the same time."Larson, who also created hit detective series Magnum P.I. and The Fall Guy passed away at a hospital in Los Angeles on November 14, following a battle with cancer.

25th Anniversary of the Fall of the Berlin Wall

on March 17, 2013 in Berlin, Germany.Today marks the 25th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall in Germany."I had been in Berlin in 1987 and in 1988 but the first time I really got into what was going on with the wall was in ’89, when my song “Looking for Freedom” was #1 for eight weeks in West Germany," David tells TIME magazine."And then the Berlin Wall mysteriously, through the grace of God, came down. The last time I’d seen my German promoter before that day, I’d asked him when he thought the wall was going to come down. He was just about 60 years old then, and he said, “Not in my lifetime.” I remember that statement. On November 9, he called me and said, “You’re not going to believe this! The wall is down! The people are free!”David recounts his time in Berlin before and after the wall came down. Read the complete article at TIME Magazine's website here.Actor David Hasselhoff returned to Berlin in 2013, this time to save the Wall — what's left of it.David tells NPR, "I was a guy who happened to do a show called Knight Rider, who happened to sing a song called 'Looking For Freedom,'" says actor, activist and singer David Hasselhoff.Hasselhoff was a certified heartthrob in the States, but he built his European reputation on that pop song. NPR's Rachel Martin asked him how he came to sing an unforgettable concert in Berlin on New Year's Eve back in 1989 after the Wall fell."I had been behind the Wall eight or nine times since 1987, to kind of further my music career with the Knight Rider car; if they wouldn't come and see me, they would come and see the car," Hasselhoff says. "I hit big with a single and they invited me to sing, and I said, 'Only if I could sing on the Wall.' And they said yes!"Even with the massive crowd singing along, Hasselhoff says he had no idea whether the performance would have any lasting impact. It wasn't until he saw people holding signs while on tour, thanking him for the fall of the Wall, that he realized how much it meant."I didn't know if it was a joke or not, I really didn't," he says. "It wasn't a joke; it was like 'Thank you for the fall of the Wall and thank you for our childhood.'"Read the rest of the article at NPR.Buzzfeed: 25 GIFs That Pay Tribute to Germany's Love of David Hasselhoff

It's the story of Lucifer exacting a revenge plot against Heaven, but God and his agents are ready for battle. The feature-length film will be shopped at AFM by Execution Style Entertainment. The filmmaker has usually bypassed traditional distribution models, and instead become hits on the midnight circuit.“Securing financing, getting distribution, getting anything off the ground these days is a damn miracle,” he said. “The Carnival is our answer to that. We found a way to circumvent the catch-22 by making this more than just a movie. The Devil’s Carnival is an experience that demands more of you than sitting there and just being passive.”“With episode one, we proved there was a market for our anti-Glee content and punk rock business model,” said Zdunich, who also plays Lucifer. “The Devil's Carnival is now back by popular demand, and Alleluia is bigger and badder than the first one.”Heat Vision has the exclusive first-look at the trailer for Devil’s Carnival: AlleluiaSource: HoffArmy and The Hollywood Reporter
