MTV has set Saturday, April 20th at 9:00PM ET/PT for the highly anticipated TV premiere of “How High 2”, the much buzzed-about sequel to the iconic stoner classic. Mike Epps reprises his role as ‘Baby Powder’ alongside the previously announced all-star cast including Lil Yachty, D.C. Young Fly, Alyssa Goss, DeRay Davis and Mary Lynn Rajskub, with special appearances from Blac Youngsta, NeNe Leakes, Cynthia Bailey, Lil Baby, and Justine Skye. The follow up to the 2001 pop-culture phenomenon, previously led by Method Man and Redman, chronicles two young “potrepreneurs” on a magical weed-filled journey to fund their on-demand munchies delivery start-up. Lil Yachty (Roger) plays an entrepreneur and stars opposite of D.C. Young Fly (Calvin) who plays his best friend.

Taraji P.Henson and Ed Helms will team for Netflix comedy “Coffee and Kareem”. Michael Dowse will direct, based on the Blacklist script by Shane McCarthy. In the film, a Detroit cop reluctantly teams with his girlfriend’s 11 year-old son to clear his name and take down the city’s most ruthless criminal.

David Dobkin will direct “Eurovision”, to star Will Ferrell, for Netflix. Based on a script by Ferrell and Andrew Steele, “Eurovision is a comedy set around the “The Eurovision Song Contest” – the longest running annual international TV song competition.

Rio Mangini and Del Zamora have joined the cast of The CW’s “Lost Boys” pilot. The former plays Sam, “Michael’s younger brother, whose high level of literacy is matched by an equally high level of snark”; while Zamora is Frank Garcia, “Lucy’s father, a cantankerous old hippie who owns a beloved local bed and breakfast,” respectively. Corey Haim and Barnard Hughes played the roles in the original Joel Schumacher-directed film.

“That should have been another franchise because that character was so cool. And I blew it. My personal life got in the way. But we’re trying to bring it back as a streaming TV series. Bring out the zombie squad. I’m long gone, but the idea is really good.”

The film, released in 1986 and directed by George P.Cosmatos, told of a tough-on-crime street cop must protect the only surviving witness to a strange murderous cult with far reaching plans.
