NEW YORK — Welcome, Holly Golightly, to the digital revolution.

Vintage Books has announced that “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” Truman Capote’s classic New York City novella, has come out as an e-book for the first time.

Other Capote favorites also will debut in digital form. Vintage, a paperback imprint of Random House, is planning paper reissues of Capote’s work, including the true crime classic “In Cold Blood.”

LOS ANGELES — TV Land, for the first time since the launch of the network 16 years ago, is unveiling a re-imagined logo, redesigned on-air packaging and graphics.

The retro-style logo with the classic TV screen has been replaced with a logo that acknowledges the network’s roots but reflects that the network is also programming original series.

At the same time, TV Land is launching a second night of original sitcoms, with the Wednesday night lineup starting June 20.

The new series “The Soul Man,” starring Cedric “The Entertainer” and Niecy Nash, will premiere, followed by the second season premiere of “The Exes.”

On June 26, “Retired at 35” will return for a second season.

NEW YORK — Dan Stevens, who is shooting the third season of “Downton Abbey,” is joining the cast of Broadway’s “The Heiress,” which opens in October.

Producers said Stevens, who plays the aristocratic Matthew Crawley on the PBS show, will make his Broadway debut opposite Jessica Chastain and David Strathairn. The play is based on the Henry James novel “Washington Square” and became an Academy Award-winning film with Montgomery Clift and Olivia de Havilland.

LOS ANGELES — Michael Jackson’s glittery gloves, spangled jackets, stage-worn costumes and personal fashion effects are going on a world tour.

Celebrity auctioneer Darren Julien says clothing created by Jackson’s longtime costume designers will be exhibited in South America, Europe and Asia before being sold to the highest bidder in December.
