This July, the Robot Chicken television series heads back to Blu-ray and DVD - and this time, the DC Comics universe is at the center of its Emmy Award-winning stop-motion lampooning. Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, in partnership with DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation, continues to build its repertoire of dishing out hilarious sketch comedy parodies in the all-new Adult Swim Blu-ray and DVD release, Robot Chicken DC Comics Special. The special, which boasts an all-star cast as well as characters Robot Chicken fans have grown to love, provides a unique take on some of the most iconic superheroes from the DC Comics universe - along with others whose powers can't really be called "super." It will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on July 9, 2013 for the suggested retail price of $19.98 and $14.98, respectively.
With more than two hours of bonus content created by the special's producers, including deleted scenes, commentaries, outtakes and more, »
A Us remake of BBC Four's Getting On has been picked up to series.
The original Getting On ran for three seasons on BBC Four with star Brand winning a BAFTA for her performance.
Scanlan recently told Digital Spy that HBO's remake is "fantastic", adding: "It's really, really well done and I like it very much. It's very truthful to the original spirit of the show, yet they've been able to make it their own."
Big Love creators Mark V. Olsen & Will Scheffer are returning to HBO’s primetime. The pay cable network has picked up the duo’s comedy pilot Getting On to series with a six-episode order. An U.S. version of the award-winning BBC Four medical comedy of the same name, HBO’s Getting On stars Laurie Metcalf, Alex Borstein and Niecy Nash. Set in a women’s geriatric extended care wing of a down-at-the-heels hospital as put-upon nurses, it follows anxious doctors and administrators as they struggle with the darkly comic, brutally honest and quietly compassionate realities of caring for the elderly in an overwhelmed healthcare system. BBC Worldwide Prods. is producing. The creators and stars of the original series, Jo Brand, Joanna Scanlan and Vicki Pepperdine, executive produce the HBO series. Olsen and Scheffer, who wrote the adaptation through their overall deal at HBO, are executive producing though their Anima Sola Prods. »

Speaking about the HBO pilot, Scanlan said: "We have had some input. In fact we've actually seen an edit of it recently, which I thought was fantastic.
"It's really, really well done and I like it very much and we really hope HBO pick it up [for a series]. It's very truthful to the original spirit of the show, yet they've been able to make it their own.
"We told them not »
Whether she's playing the lovable Den in Getting On, the brilliant Terri Coverley in The Thick of It or taking a lead role as hopelessly incompetent lifestyle coach Toria in Sue Perkins's new sitcom Heading Out, Joanna Scanlan has proved herself to be one of the UK's most bankable comedy actresses.
Was Heading Out as much fun to make as it looks?
"It was really good fun to make. It's got a lovely script that is lovable and quirky and Sue is a fantastic person to be around. She's hugely entertaining and she's got together a cast of thoroughly lovely people. Sue is like a machine with jokes, she just fires them out one after another and she's a delight to be around.
"She has a lot of integrity »
Somehow, against considerable odds - including a Gay Men's Chorus, copious musical numbers and Barbra Effing Streisand - last night's Shameless actually managed to out-gay the Oscars.
We start with Brittany from Social Services packing the Gallagher kids into a minivan like Chicago's most dangerous tee-ball team. She's apparently managed to place wee Liam and Carl (Ethan Cutkosky) in a foster home together, while Debs (Emma Kenney) will be on her own at another home and Lip (Jeremy Allen White) and Ian (Cameron Monaghan) will be housed in some sort of juvie prison camp. This has Lord of the Flies written all over it, and I don't like it. As they depart, Fiona (Emmy Rossum) asks Brittany who reported them but she's not talking. Fiona assures the kids that they'll be home before long, reminding them that last time it was only for nine days.
This is very sad. »
