‘Cardboard Boxer’ Trailer: Thomas Haden Church Struggles To Escape Dark World of Fighting Homeless Men for Pay

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Knate Lee, known for producing the Johnny Knoxville-led “Jackass 3D” and “Bad Grandpa,” has stepped behind the camera to direct his first feature film “Cardboard Boxer,” starring Thomas Haden Church.

The drama – which appears to have skipped the festival circuit – centers on Willie (Church), a homeless man who is paid by two rich teens to fight other men for cash and then struggles to escape the dark world he’s gotten himself into. With the help of a new pen-pal and a trusting new friend (Terrence Howard), he hopes to turn his life around. 

Written by Lee, “Cardboard Boxer” also co-stars “Narcos’s” Boyd Holbrook, Rhys Wakefield, and musician Macy Gray. Check out the first trailer below.

Comedy’s Comeback: Networks Push Boundaries With Bold New Half-Hours

30 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

To students of television comedy, “Community” star Joel McHale is making a big transition this year.

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.

Art Streiber for Variety

To McHale, the significance, in creative terms, of the single-camera vs. multi-camera format has been wildly overstated at a time when the boundaries of »

20 new fall TV shows to get excited about

30 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

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 on Her Big Return to TV: The Question Became 'How Does My Family Feel About Me Walking Away for a While?'

24 August 2016 12:55 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

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. »
