ABC's "Empire" has shrunk a bit, but at least it still exists. The network was considering bailing from the $30-million series, an epic about ancient Rome being shot in Italy. Executives were especially concerned about cost overruns on the ambitious project, several sources said, and "Empire" also lost a key champion in Susan Lyne, who departed last month as ABC entertainment president.

Premiere, the slick, new NYC-based film monthly, has jumped from a press run of 300,000 for its June trial issue to 430,000 for its formal October debut issue. And it's getting lotsa hyperbolic promotion from NYC/LA P.R. firm PMK. Whoa! Isn't November cover boy William Hurt a PMK client? Ditto Faye Dunaway and Glenn Close, treated so favorably in the October issue? Will we be seeing a parade of PMKers in forthcoming issues, thanks to a cozy connection?
