PEOPLE & PLACES

August 15, 2007

Oscar winner Anjelica Huston will drop by NBC's Medium next season.

The trade paper says that Huston will play a character named Cynthia Keener, an investigator who enters into an unusual partnership with Patricia Arquette's Allison Dubois.

Are we ready for this?

A Los Angeles court commissioner said yesterday that he would consider a motion by a magazine and a TV station to unseal documents in the Britney Spears-Kevin Federline divorce case.

"They're appropriate participants in here," Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon said of the request by KNBC-TV and People magazine.

Spears and Federline weren't present for the hearing. Gordon scheduled another hearing for Sept. 14 to give their attorneys time to make their case for keeping the documents under seal.

Spears' divorce from Federline became official July 30.

More `Today'

NBC's Today show will tack on a fourth hour at the end of its 7 a.m.-to-10 a.m. program starting Sept. 10.

The new hour will be co-hosted by Today news anchor Ann Curry, national correspondent Natalie Morales and correspondent Hoda Kotb.

Staying put

Luciano Pavarotti has been given the go-ahead by doctors to leave the Italian hospital where he was admitted last week with a fever, but he plans to remain for a few more days just to be sure, his wife said yesterday.

Manager Terri Robson had said in an e-mail to the Associated Press that Pavarotti, 71, would be leaving the hospital in Modena "imminently" after doctors had "given him the go-ahead to leave ... and resume his summer holiday."

Later in the day, however, Pavarotti's wife, Nicoletta Mantovani, told reporters outside the clinic that he had chosen to remain a few more days because he feels more tranquil there than at home, the ANSA news agency reported.

Quick clicks

HBO took little time in deciding to cancel David Milch's "surf noir" drama John From Cincinnati, letting the ax fall a day after the show's season finale, which aired Sunday. The cryptic, metaphysically inclined series, which divided critics and viewers alike, won't be back for a second season.
