The leading man of the most unconventional, unrelentingly meta sitcom ever to air on broadcast is moving to CBS for a multi-camera show, “The Great Indoors,” which pokes fun at the pop culture punchline of the moment: those wacky millennials. McHale plays a maverick photojournalist who is brought in from the field to rescue a magazine overrun by young staffers.
Across the dial, from broadcast to cable to streaming heavyweights, the number of comedy series is rising as networks seek a counterweight to the explosive growth of original dramas during the past five years. The expansion has opened up the playing field for traditional three-camera sitcoms as well as more esoteric single-camera fare.

Once upon a time, conventional wisdom in TV suggested that any shows debuting outside of the fall were in some way lesser than the ones launching in September and October. Thanks to cable, streaming, and even a transformation of the way the broadcast networks schedule things, the roles have almost entirely reversed: now the really special stuff gets saved for January or later, while a lot of what's scheduled for a more traditional launch can be viewed as cannon fodder. This TV season, for instance, Fox is saving its revivals of 24 and Prison Break for 2017, and the CW is doing the same with its highest-profile new series, Riverdale. But there's still a lot of promising stuff coming this fall across broadcast, cable, and streaming — not just the welcome return of shows like Rectify, You're the Worst, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but a far more exciting batch of new series than were »

Sarah Jessica Parker is headed back to HBO, but her new role in Divorce is a far cry from the flirty, single Manhattanite she made famous on Sex and the City. "She's less buoyant than Carrie Bradshaw and believes she is less resilient," Parker, 51, says in the current issue of People of her character, Frances, a suburban mom who's "in battle with a man she loved" (Thomas Haden Church). While Parker's own 19-year marriage, to Matthew Broderick, is going strong, Parker says her family played a big part in her decision to star in the new half-hour dramedy, which she also produces. »

The Divorce actress took to Instagram on Sunday to wish her former Sex and the City costar, Kim Cattrall, a happy 60th birthday. "Happy birthday you beauty," she captioned the gorgeous still of Kim. "Sending love and the very best for a perfectly marvelous, joyous, healthy and adventure filled birthday year. Your ol' pal, fellow mischief maker and 'sister', Sj xxx."

Hollywood isn't always as it seems. Such is the case for many of the iconic characters we know today. While Sarah Jessica Parker and Tom Cruise are now synonymous with the characters that catapulted them to endless stardom, there was a time when the roles of Carrie Bradshaw and Joel Goodsen almost went to another famous face. In a new book titled Powerhouse: The Untold Story of Hollywood Creative Artists Agency, author James Andrew Miller takes readers into the offices of the industry's most powerful casting agents at the time of major decisions, whether it was convincing Matthew Broderick to take the role of a lifetime or letting down Goldie Hawn after being rejected for a coveted »
