On the one-year anniversary of the helicopter accident that killed Kobe Bryant, his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven others, the world is once again mourning. Several celebrities and athletes posted social media tributes on Tuesday to honor the NBA icon’s life and legacy. Among them was Bryant’s former Los Angeles Lakers teammate Pau Gasol, who shared a lengthy letter addressed to his late friend. “I miss you, hermano… not a day goes by that you are not present in what I do. Your spirit, your drive, your ambition, your love… continues to shine in my life and in many others,” Gasol wrote. “I hope you and Gigi are smiling down seeing how strong, sweet and amazing your girls are… they are growing so fast brother. I wish you could’ve met our little Elisabeth Gianna. We will make sure she knows where her middle name comes from… how extraordinary, loving and inspiring her cousin Gigi and her uncle Kobe were.” Also Read: Kobe Bryant Posthumously Receives LA Area Emmy Governors Award Magic Johnson, another of Bryant’s former teammates, tweeted a photo of them together and wrote, “Kobe will always be my Lakers brother for life.” Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon and Kerry Washington were among the other stars who marked the anniversary of Bryant’s untimely death.

The Writers Guild of America and William Morris Endeavor have agreed to postpone their upcoming federal trial until February 2022 as the two sides continue to work towards a deal to sign a franchise agreement that will allow the Hollywood agency to represent writers again and end an industry dispute over packaging fees and agency-affiliated production companies that dates back to 2018. In court documents obtained by TheWrap, attorneys for both sides filed a request to push back the trial six months from its previous trial date of August 24. The trial stems from a lawsuit filed by WME, CAA, and UTA last summer accusing the Writers Guild of participating in an illegal boycott by having its members terminate their representation with any agency that does not agree to phase out packaging fees, payments from a studio to an agency in exchange for packaging talent on a project that have been called a conflict of interest by the WGA. Since then, every agency except WME has signed a franchise agreement requiring them to phase out packaging fees by June 30, 2022; including CAA and UTA, which have withdrawn from the lawsuit. The major sticking point between WME and WGA is the agency’s controlling interest in affiliate production studio Endeavor Content. The franchise agreement requires agencies and any private equity firms that own those agencies, such as WME’s equity owners Silver Lake, to hold no more than a combined 20% share in an affiliate production studio. The two sides have been at odds over how the agency should adhere to this rule, leading WME to request federal judge Andre Birotte Jr. to order the guild to end the boycott. Birotte refused, saying that federal law prohibits judges from intervening in non-violent labor disputes. Pamela Chelin contributed to this report.

Robert Rodriguez will look to re-imagine the “Spy Kids” franchise of family films, teaming with Skydance Media, which optioned the rights to the trilogy of films, and Spyglass Media Group, which owns the franchise. Rodriguez will write and direct the new film, and like the original series, the new “Spy Kids” movie will focus on a multi-cultural family of international spies. The original film from 2001 was a critical and box office success, grossing $147.9 million worldwide and starred Antonio Banderas and Carla Gugino alongside its young stars Alexa PenaVega and Daryl Sabara. The franchise became so popular it spawned three more sequels, all of them directed by Rodriguez, and as a whole the films grossed over $550 million at the worldwide box office. Also Read: 'We Can Be Heroes' Sequel in the Works After Original's Big Debut Spyglass owns the “Spy Kids” franchise. Skydance will serve as the lead studio and oversee development and production. Spyglass’ Gary Barber and Peter Oillataguerre will executive produce. Rodriguez recently had big success on Netflix with “We Can Be Heroes,” which is in the same universe as Rodriguez’s other popular 2000s family film, “The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lava Girl. And Rodriguez is already at work on a “We Can Be Heroes” sequel. “Spy Kids” however was a major change of pace for Rodriguez, who was known for his stylized, more mature films such as “El Mariachi,” “Desperado” and “From Dusk Till Dawn.” In recent years he’s directed “Alita: Battle Angel” and an episode of “The Mandalorian.” Rodriguez is represented by WME and his attorney Craig Emanuel.

Anheuser-Busch recently announced its Super Bowl plans, and one of its beloved beer brands will be absent from the big game. In order to raise awareness for the COVID-19 vaccination effort, Budweiser will forgo its national advertising spot during the broadcast for the first time in 37 years.A 30-second Super Bowl ad cost $5.6 million in 2020, according to CNBC. Spots for this year's Feb. 7 broadcast are slightly cheaper—only $5.5 million. The money that would have went toward a Budweiser ad will instead be reallocated to support awareness about the COVID-19 vaccine all year long, Anheuser-Busch said in a statement. (Related: The Saddest Restaurant Closures In Your State.)But other beverages under the Anheuser-Busch umbrella will be featured in four minutes of air time, as well as a corporate spot focusing on the beverage giant's role in recovery efforts."A key learning from 2020 is that we must prioritize humanity and purpose," Marcel Marcondes, the U.S. CMO of Anheuser-Busch, said. "So you'll see us show up differently at the Super Bowl this year, starting with a bold commitment from Budweiser, alongside spots from Michelob ULTRA and Stella Artois that provoke us to think about what matters most in life, as well as Bud Light who is celebrating all of their legends in an epic spot."This isn't the only company scrapping commercial plans for this year's NFL championship. Pepsi is also forgoing a minute or less ad to focus on its 12-minute halftime show featuring The Weeknd, which Matt Voda, CEO of marketing company OptiMine, calls interesting."This way, they get the best of all outcomes: they avoid the risks of striking the wrong tone with poorly executed spots, they still get the awareness-generating boost from sponsoring the halftime show, and their brand can be all about the party," he says.

Plano, Texas–based buffet pizza chain Cici's is going bankrupt. The company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday with a pre-approved sales deal which will see the chain bought by its primary lender, B&G Investors.Just a decade ago, Cici's operated more than 650 locations and had ambitious plans to open another 500 restaurants in the following decade. Instead, its footprint dwindled down to just over 300 locations, which is what the chain currently operates along with its franchises across 26 states. (Related: The Saddest Restaurant Closures In Your State.)The buffet restaurant, which is home to bottomless pizza, pasta, salad, and dessert, had slowly been squeezed out by larger competitors which were better prepared to meet the demand for digital ordering, delivery, and takeout services, according to the court filing.Once the pandemic hit, buffet-type restaurants proved to be particularly vulnerable due to the open nature of their food displays and self-serve lines which don't allow for proper social distancing, adding to the company's declining sales. The mandated dining room closures "significantly disrupted Cici's restaurant operations and severely limited customer demand," as the vast majority of the chain's pre-pandemic sales came from their dine-in operations.B&G Investors is acquiring Cici's alongside its $82 million debt, and will provide the chain the necessary financing to see it through the bankruptcy process, which is supposed to be completed by March. The company itself owns 11 restaurant while the rest are owned and operated by franchises, which are not part of the bankruptcy filing.Don't forget to sign up for our newsletter to get the latest restaurant news delivered straight to your inbox.

YouTube on Tuesday said it was extending its suspension of former President Donald Trump’s account. The Google-owned company isn’t offering a timeline on when Trump could possibly return to the world’s biggest video site, instead saying he’ll merely “remain suspended” for the time being, according to CNET, the first outlet to report the news. “In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,” YouTube said in a statement to the outlet. “Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments.” That wording echoes YouTube’s reasoning for suspending Trump’s account earlier this month, about a week after his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. YouTube initially suspended Trump for a minimum of seven days and extended its suspension once already last week. Trump’s removal from YouTube came as he was kicked off several top tech platforms, including Facebook and Twitter.
