Valorous TV to Exclusively Premiere New Documentary, Black Hawk Down: The Untold Story

C3 Entertainment, Press Releases

Los Angeles, CA – November 5, 2018 – Valorous TV, the all new digital streaming subscription
service from Valorous Media, will be premiering the brand new documentary, Black Hawk
Down: The Untold Story in honor of the 25th anniversary of the rescue mission, in conjunction
with Veteran’s Day, on Monday, November 12, 2018. This documentary film features never before
seen footage, with stories told directly by the troops who were on the ground during the
Battle of Mogadishu, as well as commentary by General Mark A. Milley, the 39th Chief of Staff
of the U.S. Army. Valorous TV is the exclusive streaming service to premiere this impactful
documentary.

Black Hawk Down: The Untold Story is a one-hour documentary on the heroic efforts of the
soldiers from the 2nd Battalion 14th Infantry Regiment, 10th Mountain Division (2-14). The story
of 2-14 was left untold in the feature motion picture, Black Hawk Down (2001). These soldiers
from the 10th Mountain Division demonstrated extraordinary courage, skill, and discipline as
they fought their way into a “baited ambush” to rescue the 99 special operations forces pinned
down at the crash site of Super Six-One while also attempting a rescue at the crash site of
Super Six-Four–what many have described as the most ferocious urban combat since the
Battle for Huế during the Tet Offensive in 1968.

“It is very special for Valorous TV to premiere this exciting new documentary,” said Earl
Benjamin, President and CEO of Valorous TV. “The film finally tells the whole story behind this
incredible display of valor, bravery and sacrifice by our great United States Military.”

Executive produced and directed by Colonel Randall Larsen, USAF (Ret). Larsen is the CEO of
Randall Larsen Presents, a company dedicated to bringing great stories in film and print to the
American public. He previously served as a professor and department chair at the National War
College.

“I am extremely proud to help tell the untold story of the soldiers from Task Force 2-14,” says
Larsen. “After a quarter of a century, it is time to set the record straight.”

Ritchie Valens in his 1958 T-Bird

Ritchie Valens Festival To Celebrate Memorial Highway Named in His Honor

Press Releases, Ritchie Valens

LOS ANGELES, CA – August 6, 2018 – A stretch of the 5 Freeway in the Northeast San Fernando Valley will be renamed the Ritchie Valens Memorial Highway in honor of the local rock legend.

A family-friendly festival and movie screening of La Bamba will be held at Ritchie Valens Park in Pacoima (10731 Laurel Canyon Blvd) on August 25th from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm to celebrate the official unveiling of the Ritchie Valens Memorial Highway signs.

“Ritchie Valens exemplifies the talent and greatness that Ritchie Valens Fest 2108exists in this community — breaking barriers as one of the first Latino musicians to cross over to mainstream rock and roll,” said Los Angeles City Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez. “His music was the soundtrack for generations of Angelenos and his legacy is a source of pride for our Pacoima community.

“His music inspired and influenced a generation of Chicano artists in our community and throughout the world. It’s only fitting to name this segment of the I-5 after a Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Famer who grew up right here in Pacoima,” Assemblyman Raul Bocanegra, D-Pacoima, said when he announced the legislation’s passage. This event is presented by Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez and the Ritchie Valens Tribute Committee, the event will feature live entertainment, food trucks, and a screening of the movie, La Bamba at 7:30 pm.

Confirmed performers include DJ Rhythm Donor (Bobby Arias), Backyard Blues Band (featuring Mario Valens, and the Ritchie Valens tribute performers, Ernie Valens Band.

About Ritchie Valens: A legendary artist who still resonates today, Ritchie Valens rose to fame in the late 1950’s as the first Latino rock star and a pioneer of rock ’n’ roll with hits such as “La Bamba,” “Come On, Let’s Go,” and “Donna.”

Valens began recording for Del-Fi Records in 1958. In a career spanning only eight months, he recorded three albums of over 30 songs and released nine singles including five chart-toppers with “Donna” peaking at #2 on the Billboard pop chart in 1958.

Ritchie Valens along with legendary musicians Buddy Holly and The Big Bopper died in a tragic plane crash on February 3, 1959, during their Winter Dance Party tour; a day referred to as the day the music died.

Since his untimely death at the age of 17, his music has gained in popularity and influenced generations of musicians. Jimi Hendrix and Carlos Santana are both cited as influenced by Valens’ guitar playing. Artists from Led Zeppelin to Los Lobos have recorded his music.

Valens who was inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 2001, is remembered with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a major motion picture, La Bamba, a U.S. Postage Stamp, and namesake soft drink.

Press Releases, Uncategorized

Larry, Moe and Curly are face-slapping and eye-poking their way to India.

U.S.-based C3 Entertainment’s iconic Vaudeville comedy franchise, “The Three Stooges,” is set to be adapted for Indian television. With a working title of “Three Stooges Bole Toh Hungama Ho Gaya,” the Hindi-language series is being developed by Mumbai-based Galani Entertainments.

A broadcaster has yet to be identified for the show, whose title translates into English as “When You Say ‘The Three Stooges’ You Mean a Laugh Riot.”

Galani Entertainments is linked to Vijay Galani Moviez/Film Folks, whose credits include Salman Khan vehicles “Veer” and “Suryavanshi” and “Ajnabee,” starring Akshay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor. New talent will be cast in the roles of Larry, Moe and Curly.

The original comedy trio featured in some 190 film shorts from 1934 to 1958, with U.S. television syndication beginning thereafter. “The most appealing factor for recreating ‘The Three Stooges’ in India is the universal appeal of the boys’ comedy,” said producer Pratik Vijay Galani of Galani Entertainments.

“This is the perfect time to extend ‘The Three Stooges’ franchise in India to the 1.3 billion population,” said Earl Benjamin, president of C3. Television is the largest component of India’s media and entertainment industry, growing at 8.5% a year and valued at $9 billion.

Separately, C3 is currently developing the family feature “The Three Little Stooges.” Also in the works is a follow-up to the 2012 “The Three Stooges Movie” with Sean Hayes, Chris Diamontopoulos and Will Sasso reprising their roles as Larry, Moe and Curly.

MICHAEL GRANDINETTI AIMS TO EXCITE AND MYSTIFY AMERICA THIS SUMMER WHEN HE RETURNS FOR HIS FOURTH SEASON ON THE HIT CW TV SERIES “MASTERS OF ILLUSION”

Michael Grandinetti, Press Releases
MICHAEL GRANDINETTI AIMS TO EXCITE AND MYSTIFY AMERICA THIS SUMMER WHEN HE RETURNS FOR HIS FOURTH SEASON ONTHE HIT CW TV SERIES “MASTERS OF ILLUSION”
This Season, Michael Will Perform His 20th Illusion For The Series, Along With Many Other Spectacular Feats, Never Seen Before on TV.  The Series Premieres Friday, June 30, At 8:00PM.
LOS ANGELES, CA – June 13, 2017 – Illusionist Michael Grandinetti is always up for a challenge.  For the past 20 years, Grandinetti has made a name for himself across the country with such stunning feats as levitating in a stadium while surrounded by 70,000 people, causing a 200 piece orchestra to read the minds of an audience and play songs only thought of, and even making a 20ft American Flag appear on the White House Lawn for Easter.
Returning as one of the featured performers on The CW’s hit series “Masters of Illusion”, Grandinetti, who has been named by Entertainment Weekly as “a great magician who can truly communicate with a TV audience” and by Hidden Remote as “a fan favorite”, is aiming to top his past performances in all three seasons with a batch of brand new illusions that combine his signature elements of drama, suspense, and comedy, with music, personality, and audience participation.
Since the show’s premiere in the summer of 2013, Michael has performed some of his favorite illusions on the show’s Hollywood stage, including levitating an unsuspecting audience member under bright lights, shrinking a dancer to the size of a basketball, causing live goldfish to appear from his bare hands, and vanishing from high above the stage and reappearing in the center of the audience.  The video of Michael’s performance on last season’s premiere went viral and this season will include Michael’s 20th illusion that he has performed on the series (a stunning, never before seen illusion with a 40″ spinning buzz saw).
Currently airing in over 100 countries around the world and hosted by actor Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Masters of Illusion is a show the entire family can enjoy, with weekly illusions, escapes, comedy magic, sleight of hand, and more, all performed before a live audience.  Premiering on June 30 at 8pm, 13 all-new episodes were filmed for the season.  A few of the new surprises Michael has in store this year include:

 

Melting Through An Industrial Fan
Michael attempts to pass his body through the spinning metal blades of a 5ft diameter industrial aircraft fan, and hopefully emerge unharmed on the other side. 
The Mind Reading Mouse
In this surprising effect, Michael uses a live, white mouse to read the mind of an audience volunteer.  This has to be seen to be believed.  
Visible Buzz Sawing in Half
Giving one of magic’s classics a modern touch, Michael visibly divides a girl in half with a 40″ spinning buzz saw.  Then, without any cover, her halves are separated across the table top, as she continues to smile, laugh and interact with the audience
The Borrowed Object Challenge
Watch as Michael creates a slow motion close-up illusion, as a borrowed pencil dramatically melts right through the center of a borrowed twenty dollar bill.  This effect, which takes place only inches away from the audience, looks like a Hollywood special effect, LIVE.
Test Conditions Levitation
Known for his stunning levitation illusions, Michael suspends a dancer in mid-air while the camera films the magic from 360 degrees. 
Michael’s career history includes performances on television series and specials (NBC’s The World’s Most Dangerous Magic, CW’s Masters of Illusion, Pop’s Don’t Blink, FOX’s Bones, Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood, SportsCenter, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Hollywood Christmas Parade), for NFL halftime and NBA halftime shows in massive stadiums and arenas, with Oscar-winning composer Marvin Hamlisch and symphony orchestras, in theaters, casinos, and arenas around the country and even at The White House.  Michael was also the first illusionist ever invited to appear in the National Independence Day Parade in Washington DC, where he levitated a girl high above a float as it moved down Constitution Avenue as 250,000 people lined the streets. 
Masters of Illusion is produced by Associated Television International, with executive producers David McKenzie (The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” “Marie”), Al Schwartz (The 38th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards,” “The Golden Globe Awards” 2013 & 2014, “The Gulf is Back”), Gay Blackstone (“The World Magic Awards 2007-2009) and David Martin (“Marie”), along with co-executive producers Justin Pierce (“The Rocky Saga: Going the Distance”) and Jim Romanovich (“Inside Story: Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”).  Sony Pictures Television will handle the show’s international distribution.

TV and film icon Adam West, who starred alongside The Three Stooges in the 1965 feature film The Outlaws is Coming, passed away last Friday, June 10th, after “a short but brave battle with leukemia,” his family said in a statement. West was 88.

Born William West Anderson in Walla Walla, Washington, he moved to Seattle at age 15 with his mother after his parents divorced. He graduated from Whitman College, a private liberal arts school, in Walla Walla. After serving in the Army, he went to Hollywood and changed his name to Adam West, and began appearing in television series, including Bonanza, Perry Mason, and Bewitched.

West is well remembered for his starring role in the 1960’s TV series Batman. A new generation of fans knew West as the voice of Mayor West on the long-running animated series Family Guy. West received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2012.

Adam was a favorite of Three Stooges fans since his starring role as Bruce Cabot opposite Larry, Moe & Curly Joe in The Outlaws Is Coming.  He was a special guest at the 2016 Three Stooges Convention in Trevose, PA and a hit with all the fans in attendance.

Earl Benjamin, President & CEO of C3 Entertainment said “Adam was a long-time and valued member of The Three Stooges family. We will miss him and we extend our sincere condolences to his family, his friends and fans.”

NVR shoes are designed and decorated out of their facility in Los Angeles, CA. Sneakers will retail for $99.00.

Nick Romero, owner of NVR Shoes, shared, “I couldn’t be more excited about our partnership with C3, Motor Marc, and The Three Stooges. The opportunity to partner with this company and these brands to offer footwear is huge for us, and I think the fans will agree.”

The Three Stooges are ingrained in the pop culture lexicon and are forever popular through their timeless physical comedy and quotable dialog in their film shorts and movies. The Three Stooges popularity continues to rise in large part due to their massive online and social media presence.
