HOLLYWOOD, California -- Touchstone Television is laughing it up at two deals it recently sealed with actors Hank Azaria and Jim Belushi.

The Disney-owned production company signed Azaria to a TV pilot that will air on NBC. Azaria, best known as the voices of Moe, Apu, Chief Wiggum and other characters on "The Simpsons," will star as a sketch comedy writer who uses his own life as material for his show.

A film and TV actor for more than two decades, Belushi is set to star in his own TV pilot for ABC. Writers from "The Drew Carey Show" and "Ellen" will create the show, a half-hour family comedy.



Boy band stays '2gether' on MTV

HOLLYWOOD, California -- MTV's boy band show, "2gether," is no flash in the pan. The music cable network just ordered six more episodes of the parody show.

"2gether," which follows the overnight creation and success of a fictional boy band, was originally a made-for-TV movie, but was expanded to a series.

Pamela Anderson and Melissa Joan Hart are scheduled to appear in guest roles on the show.

NEW YORK -- Billy Joel and Elton John just can't get enough of each other. The two singers are hitting the road together for a third time.

The pair first went on tour together in 1995, and again in 1998. This time, the Joel-John tour kicks off in San Diego, California, on January 19.

The singers are also set to appear together on a TV special, "Elton John: Greatest Hits Live," which airs Friday on CBS.




Coroner probes Steve Allen traffic accident

LOS ANGELES, California -- The Los Angeles County Coroner's office is investigating whether a minor traffic accident contributed to the death of entertainer Steve Allen on October 30.

Allen, 78, was en route to his son's home in Encino when his car was struck by another car backing out of a driveway. Family members said when Allen arrived, he was "not steady on his feet," and went to lie down. A short time later, he was unresponsive and taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Scott Carrier, a spokesman for the coroner's office, said an autopsy was performed November 9. Results from the autopsy are expected at the end of the week or early next week.

"It was a very minor traffic accident," Carrier said. "If a traffic accident is noted on the death certificate, we are required by California law to investigate it."
