'Mob Wives' star drops video teaser

* Speaking of "Mob Wives," star Renee Graziano and her creator sister Jennifer Graziano will be on "Celebrity Corner" hosted by Dorothy Cascerceri on independent TV channel WMCN (channel 44 on Comcast) at 7:30 tonight.

'Broad' off Broad

The stars of Comedy Central's "Broad City," featuring Wayne's own Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, will hit the road with a show at the Trocadero Theatre on March 5.

The Amy Poehler executive-produced show about two 20-something New Yorkers who find themselves in wacked-out situations airs at 10:30 p.m. Wednesdays.

Tickets to Broad City Live cost $25 and go on sale tomorrow.

J.Lo and Viola Davis get Stone

Jennifer Lopez and powerhouse actress Viola Davis will star in "Lila and Eve" about two women who go on a killing spree after their children are killed by gang violence.

Directing the picture? Charles Stone III, son of former Daily News columnist Chuck Stone, whose previous credits include "Drumline."

What is local?

Philadelphia's Maura McKenna, a legal technology consultant, will appear on "Jeopardy!" at 7 tonight on 6ABC.

'50 Shades' Philly connection

"50 Shades!" a musical comedy based on the megapopular erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey, has its roots in Philly. Emily Dorezas, who created the show, grew up in Aston, where her mom still lives.

Dorezas said that musical's influences include shows like "Saturday Night Live" and "South Park." In fact, many of the show's writers - whose CVs include "The Daily Show" and "Tosh.0" - come from the improvisational musical company Baby Wants Candy, which spun the careers of "SNL" alums Rachel Dratch, Aidy Bryant, Seth Meyers and Jack McBrayer of "30 Rock."

"If I could cast anyone as [main character] Anastasia, Aidy would be my dream choice," Dorezas told me about the "SNL" standout.

Dorezas told me the musical wasn't just for the ladies, but sees it as a big date night.

"It's really fun to see those guys get on board. After the show, we got private messages and emails saying, 'Thank you, I had no idea what my girlfriend was reading,' " Dorezas said. "One guy said, 'The party hasn't stopped since we got home last week.' "

The musical runs at the Merriam Theater today and tomorrow. For tickets, go to kimmelcenter.org.
