Kid Rock tape is blocked
Lawyers for Kid Rock and a California company have reached a tentative agreement to extend a judge's order blocking the release of an explicit sex video featuring the rap-rocker, former Creed singer Scott Stapp and four women.
Last month, federal Judge John Feikens in Detroit signed a temporary order that stopped World Wide Red Light District from distributing or promoting the tape.
Kid Rock's lawyers sued Red Light, which made headlines in 2004 by distributing the Paris Hilton sex video. The lawsuit sought a permanent court order halting sale or distribution of the video.

NBC adds a fall drama
NBC has taken another step toward filling out its schedule for next season, picking up the drama Kidnapped for a fall premiere.
The show, a serialized thriller a la Prison Break, chronicles the efforts of police, the FBI and a private kidnap-and-retrieval expert to locate the abducted teenage son of a New York millionaire. It will also follow the kidnappers.
The story is set in motion with the kidnapping of teenager Leopold Cain (Will Denton); his bodyguard (Mykelti Williamson, Boomtown) is left for dead after the abduction. The boy's parents, Conrad (Timothy Hutton) and Ellie (Dana Delany), hire a professional kidnap expert (Six Feet Under's Jeremy Sisto), even as the FBI, led by veteran Agent Latimer King (Delroy Lindo) is called in.
