12 April 2016 6:09 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Aisha Tyler is heading towards “Axis” as her first feature directing gig, thanks to a week-old Kickstarter campaign she launched to fund the thriller.

Plans are to start shooting for nine days in Los Angeles in June. The cast includes Emily Bett Rickards (“Arrow”), Jerry Ferrara (“Entourage”), Amber Nash (“Archer”), Paula Malcomson (“Ray Donovan”), Ted McGinley, Jonathan Sadowski and Jean-Luc Bilodeau.

Emmett Hughes wrote the script about an Irish actor, set on the morning he is set to star in a career-changing blockbuster film. As he tries to live down his rocky past, he confronts a series of devastating events that threaten his sobriety, his loved ones, and ultimately his life.

“Because we have such limited time, the lead actor is learning and rehearsing the entire film like one would a play, and that’s how we’ll shoot it,” Tyler said. “He’s the only actor on screen for »

'New Girl' creator on Megan Fox: 'She's funny in a cool way'

8 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A couple of weeks ago, I noted that New Girl had evolved into such an ensemble comedy that it would be just fine during Zooey Deschanel's six-episode maternity leave. So far, we've had two episodes — both of them, like the last few with Deschanel, filmed immediately after production on last season wrapped, so the show could get them done before they lost the star for a while — just featuring the remaining castmembers (plus guests like Fred Armisen, Bill Burr, and Lennon Parham), but the remainder of Deschanel's absence will revolve around the introduction of a temporary addition to the loft: Reagan, a pharmaceutical sales rep played by Megan Fox. Fox has some comedy on her resume, so it's not a complete surprise that she works out quite well in the two episodes I've seen with her. But it's a significant change in the show's usual dynamics, since Reagan is »

New Girl Recap: Mi Leche Es Su Leche

2 February 2016 5:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

New Girl seems to be settling into a Jess-less routine, one that relies on half of the gang playing around with guest stars while the other half goes off on a character-building adventure. This routine may eventually get stale, but right now it feels like a solid groove to settle into. Last week's LoftBnB bit went over quite well; this week's Bill Burr and Lennon Parham as Nick's Boston cousins are even better. Plus: No seriously troubling racist lodger plot! Just some good old-fashioned Boston jokes, which surely we can all get behind.So Bob (Burr) and Carol (Parham) come to town, an event which initially has Nick concerned that they're going to ask him for money once again. He is, after all, the wealthiest Miller — a fact he knows to be true because when a waiter asks him if he still wants avocado even though the avocado is extra, »

Watch: ‘New Girl’ Star Jake Johnson Makes Directorial Debut as Nick and Schmidt Ponder the Future

2 February 2016 9:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New Girl” star Jake Johnson, who portrays Nick Miller on the Fox comedy, is playing a new role in the hit series — director. Johnson directed “Bob & Carol & Nick & Schmidt,” the fifth episode of “New Girl’s” fifth season.

While Johnson is a seasoned veteran on “New Girl,” this episode marks his first time directing.

Above, Variety has an exclusive sneak peek from the episode, in which Nick and Schmidt (Max Greenfield) have a vaguely horrifying discussion about Nick’s potential future.

“Let’s face the facts, my love life is a disaster. Schmidt, this might be my only chance of having a kid,” Nick says in the clip. “If I can’t have a kid with a woman, then maybe I’ll have one with my cousin.”

Want context? You’ll have to watch the episode.

“Bob & Carol & Nick & Schmidt,” marks Johnson’s directorial debut, but the actor has previously »

New Girl Sneak Peek: Jake Johnson Takes a Seat in the Director's Chair

2 February 2016 6:30 AM, PST | | See recent news »

On tonight’s episode of New Girl (Fox, 8/7c), Jake Johnson masters the art of being in two places at once.

In addition to starring in a Nick-heavy episode — in which members of Nick’s family (played by comedian Bill Burr and Playing House‘s Lennon Parham) pay him a visit for a very specific reason — Johnson also takes the reins behind the camera in his directorial debut.

Why Matt Weiner 'would lose' if he wanted to make a weekly Netflix show

26 January 2016 11:16 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Over the last few years, Netflix has arguably done more to change the way we watch, talk, and think about television than anyone since HBO in the turn of the century days of "The Sopranos," "Sex and the City," and "Six Feet Under." Between their library of titles licensed from more traditional TV operations and their ever-growing stable of original series, Netflix has conditioned viewers to binge-watch shows, has encouraged its creators to design shows made explicitly for that model, and has pushed television in general into a more serialized direction, since the most lucrative afterlife for many shows lies in being sold to a streaming service rather than into traditional rerun syndication. During an appearance at the TCA press tour earlier this month, Netflix's chief content officer Ted Sarandos said that the service would be offering over 600 hours of original content this year, and spending over $6 billion to »
