John Grisham’s
‘The Exchange,’ sequel to ‘The Firm,’ out in fall

NEW YORK (AP) — One of literature’s most famous whistleblowers, attorney Mitch McDeere of John Grisham’s “The Firm,” will soon be back in action — and back in trouble.

Doubleday announced Wednesday that Grisham’s “The Exchange,” a sequel to his million-selling breakout book from 32 years ago, will be published Oct. 17. The new novel takes place 15 years after McDeere and his wife, Abby, helped expose underworld ties at a Memphis firm and fled for their lives. The McDeeres are now in New York, where he’s a partner in the world’s largest international legal practice.

“His work takes him across the globe, and not always to safe places,” Grisham said in a statement. “During a trip to Libya, his trusted associate is kidnapped, and an execution is threatened unless an enormous ransom is paid. Only Mitch can facilitate the exchange, and I hope readers have as much fun with the novel as I am writing it.”

“The Firm” was Grisham’s second book, after “A Time to Kill,” and the basis for the hit film of the same name starring Tom Cruise. In 2012, it was adapted into a television series starring Josh Lucas and set a decade after the original story.

Dolly Parton and
Garth Brooks to host ACM Awards in May

NASHVILLE (AP) — Dolly Parton will return for a second consecutive year as host of the Academy of Country Music Awards but this year she’s bringing a new plus-one to help — Garth Brooks.

The show is set for May 11 and will stream live on Amazon Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.

A full rebroadcast of the ceremony and performances will stream the next day for free on Amazon’s Freevee.

It’s the second consecutive year that the show will be hosted by Parton but marks the first time Brooks will take the stage to host an awards show.

WWE’s WrestleMania extravaganza draws sponsors to the ring

NEW YORK (AP) — WWE’s WrestleMania arrives this weekend to a massive audience and vastly larger sponsorship revenue as it seeks to establish itself as a serious contender for major dollars from such partnerships.

Craig Stimmel, WWE’s senior vice president and head of global sales and partnerships, exclusively tells The Associated Press that sponsorship revenue for this year’s event has doubled to more than $20 million, a record for any WrestleMania ever.

Those numbers are critical in light of the return in January of Vince McMahon, the founder and majority shareholder of WWE, who said WWE could be up for sale.

WrestleMania 39, a two-day event that begins Saturday at SoFi Stadium near Los Angeles, has 12 sponsors, half returning from last year’s event. While there has been pushback by fans in some sports leagues that have tried to introduce more advertising, it does not appear to be an issue for WWE.
