The Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life TV show on Fox has been officially cancelled after its first and only season. This comes as a shock to no one who has been following the low-rated freshman comedy series. Fox previously demoted the show out of primetime, then wiped it completely from the schedule during May sweeps, replacing it with reruns of The Simpsons.

There is no word from Deadline, on whether Fox will burn off the remaining episodes of Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life, but that seems unlikely. Thirteen episodes have been produced. “How to Survive Your Parents’ Visit,” guest starring Alan Ruck, Jane Kaczmarek, and »

‘Holy Rollers’ Director Kevin Asch Boards Crime Drama ‘Zealous’

27 April 2016 2:29 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Holy Rollers” director Kevin Asch is on board to helm Israeli crime drama “Zealous,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Asch will re-team with “Holy Rollers” actor/producer Danny A. Abeckaser on “Zealous,” which will be set in New York City with shooting starting in the fall.

The story, written by Asch, Abeckaser and Jon Carlo, centers on an Israeli ex-con with a violent past who joins a burgeoning Israeli crime syndicate in Brooklyn amidst a brutal turf war with the Russian mob. Abeckaser will star and produce.

“I was instantly drawn to the material of the film,” Asch said. “Danny and I are fascinated with exploring cultural components in classic crime dramas. The challenge as a director is to not let the trappings of the genre confine the narrative, but rather, to create flawed characters with souls, who provide a deliberate voice and direction to our story.

Holy Rollers” starred Jesse Eisenberg, »

Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life: Cancelled? Is Tonight the Fox Series Finale?

[caption id="attachment_47326" align="aligncenter" width="590"] courtesy of Fox[/caption]

The Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life TV show seems to have been cancelled by Fox. The show, starring Jack Cutmore-Scott, Meaghan Rath, James Earl, Charlie Saxton, Justin Bartha, and Liza Lapira, is off the Fox schedule.  A rerun of The Simpsons, "Lisa the Veterinarian," has now been scheduled to air in Cooper Barrett's 7:30pm timeslot, on May 8th. As reported last week, the network had already preempted the episode once slated for April 24th.

Fox ordered 13 episodes of Cooper Barrett's Guide but tonight's episode, "How to Survive Your Parents' Visit," guest starring Alan Ruck, Jane Kaczmarek, and Juicy J (Jordan Houston), is only the 10th to make it to air. It could be Cooper Barrett's TV series finale. Watch three previews, below. The first season finale was originally scheduled for May 8th, but the preemptions have ruled that out. »

Will Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life survive its first season? Fox is preempting the April 24th episode. It will be replaced by a rerun of the The Simpsons, season 27 episode, "Paths of Glory." The preemption comes just weeks after Fox moved Cooper Barrett from 8:30pm to 7:30 and shifted Bob's Burgers to its old slot. None of this is good news. Cooper Barrett's Guide to Surviving Life is likely to be cancelled.

‘Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life’ Nearing Cancellation With Fox Schedule Change

12 April 2016 6:48 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Though a cancellation has not been made official, “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” is nearing its end with recent changes on Fox’s schedule, Variety has learned.

This weekend’s upcoming April 17 episode will air as scheduled at 7:30 p.m., but the following Sunday April 24 episode has been preempted with an encore of “The Simpsons,” leading into a new episode of “Simpsons.” On Sunday May 1, as always planned, the entire night is preempted with the second annual “American Country Countdown Awards.” No word yet on the May 8 episode, which was the original airdate for “Cooper Barrett’s” season finale — meaning two produced episodes could potentially never air.

While Fox has declined to comment on the fate of “Cooper Barrett,” it’s crunch time for a number of bubble shows as the Upfronts approach in May.

Sneak Peek: ‘Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life’ Tackles the Mystery of the Missing Phone

10 February 2016 10:44 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Cooper Barrett and his gang are returning to Fox this Sunday with a new episode of “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life,” an action-comedy that follows a problem-ridden twentysomething and his group of friends as they attempt to navigate their way through the inevitable mishaps of post-grad life.

In the latest “Cooper Barrett” installment, titular hero Cooper (Jack Cutmore-Scott) and his crew grapple with the disappearance of Cooper’s cell phone.  In an attempt to nab the phone thief, the guys resort to the “find my phone” mobile app, which leads them to a series of random destinations including an ice cream shop and a sketchy house that Neal (Charlie Saxton) refers to as the “Bates Motel.” While Cooper and the guys are dealing with his missing phone predicament, Leslie (Liza Lapira) and Kelly (Meaghan Rath) participate in a karaoke duet that escalates into a bar brawl.

[Sundance Review] White Girl

4 February 2016 8:53 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Testing the patience and sanity of its audience, White Girl plays like one of those nights where a friend lets their freak flag fly while you’re the sober one explaining why what they are about to suggest is not a great idea and will probably get you arrested. We’ve all been there before, usually around sophomore year of college, which is where Leah (Morgan Saylor) finds herself.

White Girl is a more than simple voyeurism, watching a pretty junky’s downfall as she does things the patriarchy would loudly object to. The lessons along the way are not quite learned as Leah adapts to street life using her sexuality and drug stash to get herself in and out of trouble. White Girl presents a bleak picture even if it offers some liveliness along the way; it’s not all doom and gloom, rather there’s a real love story at its core. »

Sundance: Looking Beyond the Winners’ Circle

2 February 2016 9:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Justin Chang: Well, I called it. Then again, who didn’t? Nate Parker’s “The Birth of a Nation” cemented its standing as the sensation of Sundance 2016 by winning the grand jury prize and audience award on Saturday night — an outcome that was hardly surprising, in light of recent double winners like “Precious,” “Fruitvale Station,” “Whiplash” and “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” as well as the undeniable cultural weight that a film about slavery, featuring a black hero and told from a black filmmaker’s perspective, now carries. Later this year, when Fox Searchlight launches its not-so-secret weapon to prevent another #OscarsSoWhite, there will be plenty of opining (as there is already) that “The Birth of a Nation” is a cultural landmark but a far-from-great movie, one whose import and relevance overshadow some of its artistic shortcomings.

I’ve written plenty about Parker’s film, which strikes me »

Sundance Review: 'White Girl' Goes On A Wild Ride Through New York City

28 January 2016 12:54 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

White Girl” is a movie you can’t easily shake off, not even days after you’ve seen it. It’s beyond brash, playing like “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” gone off to college and hooked on coke. The film is not a self-reflective melodrama, choosing instead to follow its lead character through a series of horrific crashes and burns on the unsympathetic streets of New York City. Leah (Morgan Saylor) is an easy-going, thrill-seeking sophomore in college. Like many newcomers to NYC, she's barely getting by, holding down a magazine internship and little else. Outside of routine work and thinly-veiled sexual harassment from her editor (Justin Bartha), Leah spends much of her free time in search of her next high. This leads her to an unlikely romance with Blue (Brian 'Sene' Marc), her corner dealer in Queens. The sensitive Puerto Rican pusher with a heart of gold is »

Sundance Film Review: ‘White Girl’

24 January 2016 3:25 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Even if “White Girl” weren’t inspired by incidents in writer-director Elizabeth Wood’s life, it would be a hard pill to swallow. The story of a New York college freshman who hooks up with a Puerto Rican drug dealer, sees him arrested before her very eyes and then proceeds to sell his monster stash of coke in order to pay for his release, Wood’s semi-autobiographical shocker is wall-to-wall drugs and depravity, offered up as proof that white girls can be as “hard” as the best of them. Served up as an extreme survival story, Wood’s gut-wrenching experience packs the same sickening effect as past Killer Films productions “Party Monster” and “Kids,” albeit with even less social value. The sensational style and subject will surely be a selling point, though in the end, such rampant negativity serves little purpose other than to establish Wood’s reputation.
