At 84, Carol Burnett Ready for Return to TV Comedy Full-Time

LOS ANGELES — Carol Burnett typically spends her mornings doing crossword puzzles with her husband, but the comedy legend could return to a full-time work schedule if the pilot she recently shot for ABC becomes a regular series.

In Household Name, produced by Amy Poehler, Burnett plays an eccentric, aging movie star who arranged to continue living in her old mansion even though the home’s new owners, a young family, have already moved in.

Burnett says Poehler would play her daughter in future episodes.

“I’m looking forward to actually locking eyeballs with Amy because I know her and we’re friends,” Burnett said in a recent interview. “So I’m looking forward to the show in which, as I say, we’ll be able to lock eyeballs and get in the sandbox together.”

The actresses are appearing at a luncheon in Beverly Hills, California, on Wednesday to benefit the Children’s Institute. ABC is expected to announce its slate of new shows later this month.

Burnett also continues to appear onstage in live Q&A sessions around the country, and she’s developing a screenplay by her late daughter, Carrie Hamilton, into a movie with CBS Films.

The occupation and blockade of Wounded Knee began as a demonstration for Lakota rights organized by members of the AIM. For the Lakota people, the community has great significance. In 1890, Wounded Knee was the site of a major clash between the Lakota and the United States Army, an event many consider to be the end of the Indian Wars.

Body of former NFL player James Hardy found in Indiana river

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Authorities say former NFL wide receiver James Hardy has been found dead in a river in northeast Indiana.

The Allen County Coroner’s Office says the 31-year-old’s body was identified Thursday, but that the cause and manner of death are still being investigated.

The coroner says the former Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens player was reported missing a few weeks ago by relatives. His body was discovered Wednesday in the Maumee River in Fort Wayne.

The former Indiana University star was drafted in the second round of the 2008 NFL draft by the Bills. A series of injuries limited him to 16 games over two seasons in Buffalo. He also played for Baltimore before being released in 2011.

Police say an employee of Fort Wayne’s water filtration plant discovered his body.
