Detroit Pistons owner Tom Gores and his wife, Holly, have listed their house in gated Mulholland Estates at $10.75 million. Although the Multiple Listing Service considers the community in the 90210 ZIP Code to be the Beverly Hills Post Office area, The Times' Mapping L.A. database shows the mansion sits within Sherman Oaks. The Mediterranean, custom built in 1992, features a family room with exposed beams, a paneled library, two bars, five fireplaces, a screening room, six bedrooms and eight bathrooms in 11,107 square feet.

Once again Walt Disney Co. has pushed back the deadline for bidders making offers to acquire the specialty label Miramax Films, to Monday, according to people with knowledge of the situation. As the deadline approaches, one prospective bidder has dropped out: Washington Redskins owner Daniel Snyder, whose RedZone Capital investment firm decided not to submit an offer after reviewing documents and having discussions with Disney executives, two people close to the process said.
