A 27-year-old member of a crew filming a biopic about Southern rock musician Gregg Allman was struck and killed by freight train this week in southeast Georgia. Investigators Friday were collecting video, emails and statements to figure out who might be at fault in the death of a 27-year-old second camera assistant Sarah Elizabeth Jones of Atlanta. Jones was struck and killed Thursday afternoon by a freight train roaring along a bridge where the biopic was being filmed. Jones had also worked as a camera assistant on "The Vampire Diaries" television show, several commercials and a couple of made-for-TV movies, according to her resume and IMDB . Seven other crew members were treated at a hospital for injuries suffered on the 110-year-old trestle above the Altamaha River in Wayne County.

Matt and Danny may be pulling good ratings with their fictional TV show, but NBC's real-life numbers for "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" are another story. Matthew Perry and Bradley Whitford star as a bickering writing duo on "Studio 60," a show that presumes to rescue a once-funny late-night comedy show a la "Saturday Night Live." But it's become clear that writer Aaron Sorkin's backstage drama needs a lifeline of its own.

That cutting-edge narrowcaster Jay Tarses is at it again. The brilliantly inventive mind behind "Buffalo Bill," "The 'Slap' Maxwell Story" and "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd," Tarses is known for creating indelibly memorable half-hour series that are as baffling to most mainstream viewers as they are beloved by his fans. Yours truly is one of the biggest. Yet his new NBC series, "Black Tie Affair," is evidence that the gap separating Tarses from the rest of humankind may have widened.

"Billy Madison" looks as if it were made to fill the void left by Pee-wee Herman. We never needed Pee-wee more. Adam Sandler plays Billy Madison, a spoiled rich nudnik who stands to inherit the family business from his hotel tycoon father (Darren McGavin)--except Madison Sr. seems to think his jerky scion isn't up to it. For one thing, the only reason he graduated public school is because his father paid off the teachers.
