'Another Period' is the vulgar manners comedy we deserve

27 May 2015 3:34 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Comedy Central is giving period comedy a shot, and it looks like it's going to be a decadent affair. Check out Natasha Leggero (who flambeed Justin Bieber at his recent roast) and Riki Lindhome in the trailer for the snooty "Another Period." (Nsfw, language.) "Another Period" is a cute title. Would've been down for "Snide and Prejudice" or "Withering Heights" too, but "Another Period" will do. The season will include guest appearances from Christina Hendricks and Michael Ian Black, so I'm expecting this will be a simultaneously glamorous and droll affair. Yes to that. I'll take this waltz.  »

7 Images From Netflix's 'Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp' Have Arrived

22 May 2015 11:09 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Reboots have gotten pretty annoying in their excess, but we are not complaining about this one. David Wain and Michael Showalter are offering up a 8 episode prequel to their cult classic 2001 movie "Wet Hot American Summer," and the gang is all here: Janeane Garofalo, Bradley Cooper (hopefully offering up more of the man-on-man action he had in the movie), Amy Poehler, Molly Shannon, Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Ken Marino, Elizabeth Banks and Michael Ian Black all return, while Jon Hamm, Josh Charles, Chris Pine and Kristen Wiig are among the newcomers. We could not be more excited, especially now that those first official images have been released... "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp" arrives on July 31st on Netflix.

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D. MilesMarisa RyanKevin Sussman, and David Wain (who will again write and direct, with Showalter serving as showrunner). New cast members will include Michaela Watkins, Josh Charles, John Slattery »

'Review' premiere, 'Key & Peele' return lead Comedy Central summer plans

20 May 2015 9:53 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Riding an impressive hot streak of originals, Comedy Central is looking to continue that momentum with a slew of summer premieres and returns including the long-awaited -- by some people, at least -- return of "Review." Starring Andy Daly as life reviewer Forrest MacNeil, "Review" was my No.2 show of 2014 and it came in at No.4 on Sepinwall's Top 10. The first season, which had already been held for a while, premiered last March and was done by the start of May. Season 2 premieres on Thursday, July 30 at 10 p.m. and Comedy Central's season description teases life experiences including "bare-knuckle brawling, joining the mile high club, and even leading a cult." Excellent. What of the other premieres? *** Created by Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome, "Another Period" is a Gilded Age satire featuring Christina Hendricks, Michael Ian Black, David Koechner, Jason Ritter and more and it'll premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:30 p. »

Hulu Sets April 20 Release Date For ‘Deadbeat’ Season Two

5 March 2015 12:21 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu has more stories to tell about an apathetic New York City dude who sees ghosts. The streaming video platform announced its original supernatural comedy series Deadbeat will return for a second season on April 20, 2015.

Deadbeat features Kevin (played by Tyler Labine), a medium who is competent at helping ghosts complete their unfinished business but utterly incapable of making his own life better. Season two will include special guest stars James Franco (who just signed on to star in Hulu’s upcoming adaptation of a Stephen King novel), Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Zach Levi, Gilbert Gottfried, Finn Wittrock, and Jim Norton.

When Deadbeat debuted back in April 2014, we noted how Kevin’s lazy behavior and appearance appeals to the binge-watching, pot-smoking crowd. It seems appropriate, then, that Hulu has opted to release Deadbeat season two on 4/20, a day renowned for marijuana smoking. The teaser and key art »

5 March 2015 10:30 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

A stoner and a slacker, Kevin “Pac” Pacalioglu has trouble paying rent, but on the plus side, he has the awesome ability to communicate with ghosts. Tyler Labine stars in Deadbeat, a Hulu original series that debuted last year with a stellar 10-episode season. Channeling his excellent horror comedy performances in Tucker & Dale vs. Evil and Reaper, Labine makes for a delightfully unconventional ghost whisperer who will be joined by an interesting lineup of guest stars in the sophomore season that's slated to premiere in April.

Deadline reports that James Franco, Danny DeVito, Fred Armisen, Michael Ian Black, Gilbert Gottfried, Jim Norton, Zachary Levi and Finn Wittrock play guest starring roles in Deadbeat’s second season. TVLine revealed in January that Levi plays the ghost of Abraham Lincoln in the ninth episode of season two, but it's uncertain at this time who the other guest actors play, though you can »
