Following the first photos that debuted last month, Netflix has released a new trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which debuts Friday, July 31 with an eight-episode season. Based on the 2001 cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, the prequel series tells the story of the first day of Camp Firewood's famous summer season, now fourteen years after the film's debut.

"Oh, he knows what a snood is!" Natasha Leggero releases what can only be described as a squeal of delight, and then she and Riki Lindhome start laughing in tandem. "The fact that at least one viewer can actually say, 'Snoods, right'. . .we're halfway there already," Lindhome jokes. The item in question, an old-fashioned scarf-like piece of clothing, serves as the punchline for a gag roughly 30 seconds into the first episode of Leggero and Lindhome's new TV series Another Period; as this parody of Masterpiece Theatre-style aristocratic dramas takes »

All the fun, sun and near-death experiences Maine's Camp Firewood has to offer are highlighted in the hilarious first trailer for Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Netflix's upcoming mini-series prequel to the 2001 cult comedy.
The warped, VHS-quality clip plays out like a promo for Camp Firewood and includes quick snippets of its beloved, moronic counselors as they show campers the joys of drama, archery and breakdancing. H. Jon Benjamin — who voiced the can of vegetables that speaks to Gene, the shell-shocked Vietnam vet-turned-camp chef played by Christopher Meloni — narrates the video, »
Camp Firewood’s marketing team has really outdone itself this time: Witness the new trailer for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer series in all its VHS glory.
The streaming video service has released a first real look at the 8-episode comedy Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, which brings us the opening of the camp that was made famous in the 2001 cult flick.
Back in 2001, "Wet Hot American Summer," a sly satire of teen movies, made a splash in theaters. It then built up a cult following over the years. Part of the appeal was seeing a slew of now-famous faces -- Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Paul Rudd, and Christopher Meloni -- make merry before they hit it big. -Break- Fourteen years on, these stars have reunited for an eight-episode prequel, "The First Day of Camp," that will stream on Netflix beginning July 31. Among the others from the ensemble who are back for more fun and games at Camp Firewood are: Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. Below: Enjoy the teaser trailer and start counting down the days till we can all go back to camp. »
Are you ready to return to Camp Firewood? Are you? Are you really ready though? Because “the summer of your life is just around the corner,” according to a new trailer for Netflix’s Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Styled as an 80s promotional video (complete with the occasional random scene that pops up from taping over something else) on a VHS player that needs a head cleaner (you either know about this or you don’t!), the video gives us our first look at the upcoming series, and it seems absolutely amazing. One, two, three, let’s go! Did you spot all of the cameos? Is that Christopher Meloni with a mop of hair?? 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, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, »

There’s a delicate balance that exists when creating a series that spoofs a genre like costume dramas, seen through the lens of a reality show. The jokes need to be specific enough to appeal to fans of that genre, yet broad enough to rope in everyone else. But Natasha Leggero (Are You There, Chelsea?) and Riki Lindhome (Garfunkel and Oates), co-creators, writers, and stars of Comedy Central’s half-hour comedy series Another Period, haven’t quite found the right alchemy yet for those dueling facets to exist in harmony. [caption id="attachment_476571" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Comedy Central[/caption] Another Period chronicles the exploits of the wealthy Bellacourt family in early 20th century Newport, Rhode Island. The time period is reminiscent to Downton Abbey, but the show’s setup and directorial beats mirror series like Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and other vanity-based reality programming. Leggero and Lindhome play the vapid sister Lilian and Beatrice, »

At the end of each episode of Comedy Central's new series "Another Period," we get a montage of what we're told are clips from the next episode, which are entirely comprised of the characters screaming, crying, and/or smashing plates and overturning furniture. In a literal sense, these aren't an accurate depiction of what's coming next week, and not just because the clips aren't all from the same episode. But those montages really capture the anarchic, hilarious spirit of the thing: a show that will do anything — usually at top volume, and with all standards of good taste thrown out right along with the fine china — for a laugh. It's the kind of show that resorts to a prolonged Helen Keller joke at the end of its first episode — but not any kind of Helen Keller joke you've heard before. The series (it debuts tonight at 10:30, though the »

Two episodes were provided for review prior to broadcast.
In the decade since Laguna Beach first washed up on MTV, socialite reality television has proliferated to the point where many states are more distinguishable by their Real Housewives than a flag or motto. There’s been no lack of time or content to figure out the hallmarks of reality TV that takes you into the homes of the rich and would-be-famous-but-will-settle-for-infamous. Another Period, a new Comedy Central series premiering this Tuesday, looks to mine these riches for a healthy vein of humor, and thanks to a clever spin, modestly succeeds.
The problem with parodying reality television in 2015 is two-fold, the first issue being that the balance between the two words in the genre’s name tipped heavily towards “television” pretty early on. Every expository talking head interview, every sound effect sourced from a morning zoo DJ’s keyboard, it all »

The Collider Weekly TV Guide is a rundown of notable episodes, premieres, returns, finales, and opportunities to catch up on great shows (or cast an eye to the occasional TV train wreck). This week is a little less hectic than last (finally). Still, let’s skip right on over to Tuesday: Tuesday, 6/23 Another Period Series Premiere, “Pilot” (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.) — Basically The Real Housewives of Downton Abbey, this new series follows the trials and tribulations of an aristocratic family in Newport, R.I., in the early 20th century. Michael Ian Black, Paget Brewster, Christina Hendricks and Brett Gelman star. Review forthcoming. Wednesday, 6/24 Mr Robot Series Premiere, “eps1.0_hellofriend.mov” (USA, 10:01 p.m.) — This psychological thriller series about computer hackers kicks off with a vigilante (Rami Malek) at odds with an anarchist underground hacker (Christian Slater) in order to breach an evil corporation’s data … one he also is paid to protect. »

There’s an inherent developmental disconnect in “Another Period,” a Comedy Central series that seeks to spoof programs like “Downton Abbey,” laboring to find the elusive sweet spot between a knowing send-up for those who watch such fare and a farcical take-down for those who wouldn’t be caught dead doing so. Series creators/stars Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome have certainly attracted a first-rate cast to assist with the silliness, only to settle for the below-the-belt aspects of turn-of-the-century mores. There are amusing moments, but the conceit ultimately seems better suited to a “Saturday Night Live” sketch than another series. Period.
Set in Newport, R.I. in 1902, the show focuses on the Bellacourts, a filthy rich family vastly outnumbered by their doting servants, whom they generally treat like furniture. Indeed, a sexual tryst is dragged out as the two upper-crust participants wait for their butlers and maids, silently standing watch, »

Smosh Trailer. Alex Winter‘s Smosh (2015) movie trailer stars Anthony Padilla, Michael Ian Black, and Jenna Marbles. Smosh‘s plot synopsis: “An embarrassing video of Anthony surfaces online right before his fifth high school reunion. The Smosh dudes then race to pull down the clip before it blows Anthony’s chances of reconnecting with his teen crush Anna.”
We have entered a new era. This is the time of young, clean, well-kempt L.A. youths who make Vine clips and YouTube videos getting their own theatrical films. I have never heard of these people in my entire life. Somehow, this terrible premise for a movie has received funding for its own feature film outing. They’ve probably done the math – if the…Smosh…? channel has this amount of subscribers, at x dollars per ticket, they’ll make their money back. Most likely. I hope not.
This does not look funny. »

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. »

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 Benjamin, Nina Hellman, A.D. Miles, Marisa Ryan, Kevin 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 »
