A beaming 50 Cent, tough questions part of TV critics event
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) -- Every summer, the TV industry meets with the Television Critics Association to coax attention and coverage from its members.
The just-ended annual meeting included more than 100 Q&A sessions with stars, producers and executives.
Among the highlights: rapper and "Power" drama series producer Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson delighted by a reporter who called him this generation's Quincy Jones.
That prompted Courtney Kemp, creator of the Starz series, to jokingly wonder how Jones will feel about the comparison.
There were serious moments as well, including when reporters raised questions about how networks are handling misconduct allegations.
ABC said it's awaiting results from an investigation of "The Rookie" co-star Afton Williamson's claims of sexual misconduct and racism by crew members leveled a day before the network's presentation.
