NEWS: William Levy Faces Sexual Battery Charges, British TV Offerings for Americans

Telenovela star William Levy Faces Sexual Battery Charges
Jennifer Lopez has been in the media spotlight over her split from husband of seven years Marc Anthony, and now her name is tied to a different media story. The hunky actor, William Levy, who played J. Lo’s love interest in her recent “I’m Into You” music video is being sued for sexual battery of a minor.

Radar Online obtained court documents filed one year ago that accuse Levy of battery.

“Through deception and trickery Levy, with the aid of several members of his entourage, lured Plaintiff back to the Hilton Hotel in Glendale. Plaintiff, who was infatuated with Levy — a rising star of international renown for his work on Spanish language telenovelas — wanted his autograph,” the official papers state.

He's also been accused of an affair with Jennifer Lopez. Levy's rep denies there is or ever has been anything romantic or sexual between his client and Lopez.

"The only relationship there was or is, is a professional relationship. That's all there’s ever been," the rep said.

The series from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk and starring Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton and Jessica Lange should premier in October, possibly around Halloween.

"I actually played her 10 years ago in a play at the Old Globe Theater, so when I found this play, I knew I had to do it," says the actress. "I had done a lot of research before, but now my research was much more in depth. I had to really explore her, since it will be only me on stage, going through every single relationship, every single moment cross-referenced of what was happening in her life, and how she really felt about that. I'll be exploring the darkness and the light. It thrilled me at first, and then terrified me!"

New Online Slate of British TV Offerings for Americans
If your taste in television runs toward British detectives — not to mention British soap operas, British literary classics and British colonial romances — then a new streaming video making its debut on Monday may be just your cup of tea.

Acorn TV, a project of the DVD distributor Acorn Media, is aimed at an audience that is slightly underserved by current online offerings in America.
