‘NewsRadio’ stars look back in a new oral history

1 hour ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

1990s nostalgia has been popular lately. Variety reports that Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood) is reprising his role in a Coach sequel for NBC, Fox brought back the X-Files,  Netflix is turning Wet Hot American Summer into a series, and Showtime is bringing Twin Peaks out from the Black Lodge. It is only appropriate that another favorite nineties TV series is remembered, albeit in oral history form. Uproxx has interviewed the writers and stars of NewsRadio to find out how influential this sitcom was.

NewsRadio starred Dave Foley, Stephen Root, Maura Tierney, Phil Hartman, Andy Dick, and Khandi Alexander, and focused on characters who worked at Wnyx, an Am News Radio Station in New York. Although NewsRadio aired for five seasons between 1995 and 1999, it changed time slots eleven times, and was considered a failure by Must-See TV standards. Executive producer and creator Paul Simms was known to lash out at NBC executives, »

Second Opinion – Get Hard (2015)

8 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get Hard, 2015

Directed by Etan Cohen

Starring Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Craig T. Nelson, Alison Brie, T.I, Edwina Findley Dickerson, Ariana Neal, Paul Ben-Victor

Synopsis:

When millionaire James King is nailed for fraud and bound for San Quentin, he turns to Darnell Lewis to prep him to go behind bars.

Let’s just address the elephant in the room; Get Hard is one of the most relentlessly offensive movies to be released in quite some time, which is a loaded statement considering that pretty much all R-rated comedies are about being juvenile. That isn’t a bad thing though; complete stupidity can yield hilarious material so long as the execution is not malicious, but intended for fun. Yes, Get Hard goes for broke with racial and sexual content (there is literally a scene where Will Ferrell comes inches away from sucking on a penis) but I’ll be damned »

Classic NBC sitcom Coach set for sequel series

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

NBC is dipping into the archives for its newest project, which will see the classic 1990s sitcom Coach return to the small screen, reports EW.

Original star Craig T. Nelson (Parenthood, Blades of Glory) is to reprise his role almost 20 years since the end of the show. But rather than a reboot or a retool, the new series will act as a sequel to the original, which ran from 1989 to 1997, and run for 13 episodes.

No news on whether any other original cast members will also return, but original creator Barry Kemp will write and executive produce the new run.

The new series will reportedly see Coach Hayden Fox (Nelson), in the present day having retired from coaching. He is called back to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy league school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team. »

Film Review: ‘Get Hard’ is Less Than the Sum of Its Parts

18 hours ago | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Will Ferrell is a funny guy. Kevin Hart can be a funny guy. But the prison buddy comedy “Get Hard” is woefully less than the sum of its comedic parts. It fires buckshot of lame jokes at its audience, but precious few come anywhere near their targets as it squanders nearly every comic opportunity that comes its way.

Rating: 2.0/5.0

Ferrell stars as a wealthy hedge fund manager with a gold-digging fiancée (Alison Brie), and a house full of servants who can barely conceal their disdain for him. His life begins to crumble when he’s accused of fraud and embezzlement, and arrested at his own birthday party. No one is asking for “The Verdict” in a Will Ferrell/Kevin Hart comedy, but even by the lackadaisical standards of a studio comedy, Ferrell is convicted and sentenced to 10 years hard labor in San Quentin based on alarmingly little evidence and with little or no provocation. »

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart Work Hard to ‘Get Hard’

27 March 2015 10:35 AM, PDT | Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy | See recent Leonard Maltin's Movie Crazy news »

Full disclosure: I am not a fan of Will Ferrell’s comedies. I hoped that Kevin Hart’s brand of energy and the boldness of dealing head-on with racial stereotypes might give Get Hard a different dimension. No such luck. My students at USC laughed fairly often at our screening last night but I did not. Ferrell’s stock-in-trade is a self-aware silliness. In this film he plays a clueless money manipulator who’s enjoyed the fruits of success. He lives in a ridiculously opulent home with a social-climbing fiancée (Alison Brie) whose father (Craig T. Nelson) is also his boss. He treats his Latino house staff with the same irritating condescension as the fellow (Hart) who ...

Coach to Return to NBC for 13-Episode Run, with Craig T. Nelson

27 March 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Get that letterman jacket out of storage and get ready for more old white people on TV. Following this week’s announcement that Fox will be backing a six-episode return of Chris Carter’s The X-Files, NBC has now announced that they have ordered a 13-episode renewal of Coach, the inexplicably long-running sitcom that made a star out of Craig T. Nelson. The basic plot find’s Nelson’s Hayden Fox playing second-fiddle to his son, the head coach of an Ivy League school in Pennsylvania that has never had a football team before. Barry Kemp, the creator-producer-writer of the original series, which went off the air in 1997, will return to write the new series, while also executive producing the show with Nelson. [caption id="attachment_87541" align="alignright" width="352"] Image via Pixar[/caption] Little else is known about the casting or salient narrative details of the new series, other than it will be a multi-cam sitcom. »

Sitcom 'Coach' With Craig T. Nelson Is Coming Back To TV & 'Alien Nation' Is Getting A Reboot

27 March 2015 8:22 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Maybe it's time to say enough already: "24" got a limited series renewal, "The X-Files" and "Twin Peaks" are both set to return, and now, another show is returning probably for no other reason than the respective rights holders still have this sitting around and it's a bit cheaper than producing something from scratch. And so, over at NBC, they are reviving the '90s sitcom "Coach," and it will actually be a sequel series. Craig T. Nelson is back in the titular role, but there's a bit of a twist. Here's the synopsis from EW: Coach Hayden Fox, in the present day, has retired from coaching. He is called back to become assistant coach to his own grown son, who is the new head coach at an Ivy league school in Pennsylvania that is just starting up a new team. As concepts go, it's not a bad one, but we're »

Get Hard – The Review

26 March 2015 9:30 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

It’s team-up time for twin titans of comedy once again . Actually one of the stars of this new film was attempting this just a couple of months ago. The in-danger-of-over-saturation star Kevin Hart made an attempt to broaden his fan base by joining up with another rising comic star, Josh Gad, In the modest hit (couldn’t have cost that much) The Wedding Ringer. Well it certainly worked for Kevin’s comic predecessors Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, and Chris Tucker. But this time out he’s truly going for it, making a run for the comedy big leagues, by teaming with an established superstar of laugh-filled flicks, Will Ferrell (sure he’s had some duds, but when he scores, he scores big). And this new film takes some hot-button current topics, and gives them a spin that may remind you of certain Pryor and Murphy classics. So, let’s »
