Netflix hungry for more 'Arrested Development'

1 hour ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Netflix just can't get enough of the Bluths. Maybe. While "Arrested Development" producer Brian Grazer recently indicated that the streaming service is full steam ahead on a fifth season of the comedy, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos seems a little more reticent -- though optimistic. At today's TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour, Sarandos said that Netflix is in "negotiations" now to bring the show back. “We are plugging along,” Sarandos said. “It’s a very long complex deal to make for these guys, both because the talent is very busy and working on other shows, but also because the show is owned by Fox… It is our intent to have a new season of 'Arrested Development.' All the negotiations are underway.” The fourth season was plagued by complex scheduling problems due to the stars' hectic professional lives, so similar complications may be slowing the train a bit. »

Netflix Renews ‘BoJack Horseman,’ Reveals Premiere Dates for ‘Longmire’ and Aziz Ansari Series

3 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

BoJack Horseman” has been renewed for Season 3 by Netflix. The third season of the streaming service’s animated series will consist of 12 episodes set to premiere in 2016.

Netflix Renews BoJack Horseman for Season 3 (and Announces a Bunch of Other Stuff)

3 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix kicks off the Television Critics Association's summer press tour this year with a packed schedule for the fourth quarter. But the biggest — and probably least surprising — piece of news is that Raphael Bob-Waksberg's depressingly funny BoJack Horseman is returning for a third season in 2016, with another 12 episodes. The regular cast will return — Will Arnett, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, and probably a bunch of other celebrity cameos. To celebrate, let's just tell our partners we're in Cordovia when we're actually just binge-watching television until 2016.In other news, here's what else we can expect from Netflix later this year: Aziz Ansari's sitcom Master of None airs November 6. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville (20 Feet From Stardom) has a documentary on Keith Richards called Keith Richards: Under the Influence, which will air September 18. As we reported earlier, Chelsea Handler's docuseries would feature a series »

BoJack Horseman Season 2 Episode 5 Review – ‘Chickens’

27 July 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the fifth episode of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman season 2…

Episode 5 tackles a fairly meta subject for BoJack Horseman: in a world populated by intelligent, humanoid animals, who gets eaten as food?

Spoiler Ahead – You Have Been Warned!

‘Chickens’ is yet another example of the BoJack Horseman writing team throwing around some big concepts, albeit in nonsensical surroundings. Straight out of the gates, Season 2’s fifth episode begins with some entirely necessary exposition, as it is explained how certain animals are ‘friends’, while others are ‘food’.

As you can imagine, a thinly veiled commentary on animal testing and cruelty is quite a bold move for a comedic cartoon for adults, especially one in which half the characters are animals. Fortunately, the show pulls the masterstroke of having this particular plot-thread revolve around the show’s most oblivious character, Todd (Aaron Paul).

BoJack Horseman, Season 2: TV’s best show about being sad

26 July 2015 7:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

BoJack Horseman, Season 2

Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg

Premiered on Netflix on July 17, 2015

“Have fun being sad!” Todd yells at BoJack early on in the second season of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman, and this line works well in describing the series as a whole. This is perhaps the greatest TV show ever about depression and pain, and it’s padded by hilarious gags and talking animals. It’s brilliant, and so sad.

Depression is an awfully difficult subject for any series to dive into with any depth, especially an animated comedy. The format, however, works in the subject matter’s favour, as most manifestations of that sadness are offset by cathartic jokes. This is a classic way for any comedy to feature dramatic material while maintaining its light mood, but it takes on greater significance here. Indeed, binge watching BoJack Horseman becomes difficult because of how raw it feels. Sadness is »

BoJack Horseman Season 2 Episode 4 Review – ‘After The Party’

24 July 2015 2:16 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Jackson Ball reviews the fourth episode of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman season 2…

Relationships of all shapes and varieties are put under the microscope in this episode. BoJack (Will Arnett) struggles to adjust to his blossoming romance with Wanda (Lisa Kudrow), while married life isn’t all it cracked up to be for Diane (Alison Brie) and Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F Tompkins).

Spoiler Ahead – You Have Been Warned!

‘After the Party’ is an early indication of how the dynamic between the show’s core characters has changed since Season 1. Three different couples are put in the spotlight here, all of whom suffer through a heated argument before the credits roll.

It all kicks off at Diane’s surprise birthday party, arranged by her husband Mr. Peanutbutter. The married couple explodes into a huge screaming match over the seemingly mundane subject of whether or not the actor Tony Curtis was still alive »

'BoJack Horseman,' 'Rick and Morty,' and Our Love/Hate Relationship with TV

21 July 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Boob tube. Idiot box. Couch potato. Binge watch. If slang is a side door into the psyche, the language we've come to associate with television suggests it may be time to see a therapist. Even better, tune into insanely inventive animated comedies "BoJack Horseman" (Netflix), featuring voice work from the likes of Will Arnett, Lisa Kudrow, and Aaron Paul, and "Rick and Morty" (Adult Swim), from Justin Roiland ("Adventure Time") and "Community" creator Dan Harmon. They're both hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking examinations of our love/hate relationship with television.   Americans now spend half their leisure time watching TV, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and the proliferation of new series—not to mention the growing number of classic titles available via Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu—means that there's more worth seeing than even an insomniac critic can keep up with. Yet the form still provokes ambivalence, apologetic paeans »

Review: 'BoJack Horseman' Season 2 Brings the Comedy, But Finds True Depth in Its Questions

17 July 2015 11:41 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If we've learned anything from Netflix shows, it's this: You have to evaluate new seasons of a series as a whole. Just watching the first few episodes of "Sense8" doesn't really give you a sense of how weirdly human and intimate the series shaped up to be. "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" only hints at the dark underbelly fully exposed in later episodes. And this season, just like last year, it takes some time with "BoJack Horseman" before you're able to see past the comedy to hear what it's really saying.  Season 2 of the animated comedy, created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg continues the tale of BoJack (voiced by Will Arnett), who lives it up like the Hollywood (well, technically "Hollywoo") star he's been for decades, but really only barely getting by with the help of his best friend Todd (Aaron Paul), agent Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), biographer Diane (Alison Brie) and quasi-rival Mr. »

Michael Cera to voice Robin in Lego Batman movie

17 July 2015 3:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The caped crusader’s crime-fighting partner returns to the big screen for the first time since 1997’s ill-fated Batman and Robin

Michael Cera has signed on to voice Robin in Lego Batman, the forthcoming spin-off from the surprise 2014 critical smash The Lego Movie, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The 27-year-old star of Superbad and Scott Pilgrim vs the World will join Will Arnett, who is returning in the role of the gruff-voiced caped crusader. Chris McKay, animation supervisor on The Lego Movie, is taking the director’s reins on the spin-off, which is based on a screenplay by Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter’s Seth Grahame-Smith.

Michael Cera Will Play Robin in 'Lego Batman' Movie

17 July 2015 2:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Batman has found his sidekick: Michael Cera is set to voice Robin in the upcoming "Lego Batman" movie.

The Hollywood Reporter writes that Cera has just finalized a deal to play the plastic version of the comic character, alongside Will Arnett's titular hero. Arnett is reprising his role from 2014 hit "The Lego Movie," which is being spun off into a tale centered around his brooding Batman.

While there's no plot yet for "Lego Batman," the flick will retain much of the creative team that made the first flick so fun. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller are producing the spinoff, and "Lego Movie" animation supervisor Chris McKay is directing. Screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith is penning the script.

"Lego Batman" will also be a reunion for Arnett and Cera, who starred together on "Arrested Development." That series is due for another round of episodes on Netflix sometime next year, though no »

BoJack Horseman season 2: spoiler-free review

17 July 2015 12:39 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Fans of animated Netflix comedy Bojack Horseman will find the new run deeper, richer and funnier than the first...

“This is a situation comedy! No-one watches this show to feel feelings!”

It’s fair to say that Bojack Horseman was one of the more surprising hits among last year’s new programming. A dark animated comedy featuring Will Arnett as an out-of-work sitcom actor who also happens to be an anthropomorphised horse, the show launched on Netflix with relatively little fanfare. But as word of mouth spread, Bojack Horseman found an audience of loyal fans, spawning a Christmas special and now a second series.

One of the biggest surprises of Bojack Horseman’s first season - and something that perhaps wasn’t obvious from the six episodes made available to reviewers at the time - was that beneath the dark, cynical exterior lay a strong, beating heart. Yes, the titular »

The Lego Batman Movie: Michael Cera is Robin

16 July 2015 10:27 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Michael Cera is set to be Robin to Will Arnett's Batman...

The last time we saw Batman's crimefighting sidekick, Robin, on the big screen things didn't go well. Chris O'Donnell realised the role in two Joel Schumacher-directed Batman films in the 1990s, and it would be fair to say that he wasn't in danger of winning too many awards for his take on the character.

Michael Cera, however, we suspect may fare better. He's lending his voice to the character of Robin in the upcoming The Lego Batman Movie, which sees Will Arnett voicing Batman, as he did in The Lego Movie.

Chris McKay is directing the new movie, with Seth Grahame-Smith having penned the screenplay for it.

Thus far, no plot details for the film have been released. We do know that The Lego Movie's Chris Miller and Phil Lord are overseeing the project, having previously »

Michael Cera Voicing Lego Batman's Robin

16 July 2015 5:45 PM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

The team behind The Lego Movie’s Lego Batman spin-off (currently known, somewhat logically as Lego Batman), already have Will Arnett back as the Dark Knight. So who would you cast as his Robin? They've picked his on-screen Arrested Development nephew, of course, with Michael Cera taking on the role. Cera feels like the perfect choice for this one, and we can already imagine his Robin as a nerdy, nervy and slightly whiny take on Bruce Wayne’s ward, most likely a little sick of his boss’s arrogant style and tired of his own sidekick status. The people in charge of bringing the new film to life include Seth Grahame-Smith on script duty and Chris McKay, animation co-director/editor on Lego, directing. Franchise overlords Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are producing. Promising to cover all aspects of the character’s long history, Lego Batman will be with us on February 10, 2017. In related Cera news, »
