Anthony, Lopez to perform

Braff

Marc Anthony says working with Jennifer Lopez is like second nature, which is good since the exes are uniting for one night in concert.

The pair have announced that they’ll perform together May 26 in Las Vegas as part of “Q’Viva! The Chosen Live,” which will feature the top talent from their televised talent show.

“Q’Viva! The Chosen,” which airs on Univision and Fox, features the former couple as they travel across the globe to find the best Latin talent.

Olbermann sues

Keith Olbermann is moving his grievances with his former bosses at Current TV from the airwaves to the courtroom, suing the network for more than $50 million and blasting it for what he claims were shoddy production values.

Olbermann’s breach-of-contract lawsuit filed in Los Angeles on Thursday also seeks a judge’s ruling that he didn’t disparage the network before his firing, and that his former bosses violated his agreement by disclosing how much he was being paid.

Show on auto race

Patrick Dempsey is bringing his passion for auto racing to television with a new documentary series.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star will produce “Road to Le Mans,” a four-part series about his competition in the venerable French race next year, the Velocity channel said Thursday.

Dempsey, who has a professional auto racing team based in Georgia, will be both owner and driver at the 24-hour endurance race.

“Road to Le Mans,” set to air by mid-2013, will include his team’s preparation for the event, including sponsor acquisition, training and time trials, and the race itself.

Own series due

Two of “The Real Housewives” are getting their own shows on Bravo.

The network announced Wednesday that Beverly Hills cast member Lisa Vanderpump will get her own reality show centered on the inner workings of her new Hollywood restaurant, SUR.

Kandi Burruss from the Atlanta “Housewives” will star in “The Kandi Factory,” inspired by a special of the same name that aired in March. Burruss will work with wannabe pop stars.
