Law-enforcement officers, who do not suspect foul play, further told TMZ that the engine was running when Yelchin’s body was discovered and that the car was in neutral.

Tuesday nights of comedy begin Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the return of Brooklyn Nine-nine, New Girl and Scream Queens. Entering its fourth season, Brooklyn Nine-nine (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt) returns after a season finale cliffhanger in which Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his by-the-book boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), were forced to enter the federal witness protection program. Then, the sixth season of ensemble comedy New Girl (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) continues to follow Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the gang as they attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – from marriage to career advancement – with often hilarious results.

Empire (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), broadcast television’s biggest hit, is a powerful drama about a family at the center of a music dynasty. This season, Empire Entertainment founder Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) sets his sights on a new streaming service; as his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson) pursues a new romantic interest; and his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers), struggle with fame and ambition.

Then, The Exorcist (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) returns as a contemporary psychological TV thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession.

There's no getting around it: Breakups are rough. But before you crawl into a cave and declare you'll never love again, check out these TV shows that demonstrate exactly how to, and how not to, deal with the loss of love before you rejoin the world. Your next partner will thank you.
'Man Seeking Woman' (2015 - )
Based on Simon Rich's novel "The Last Girlfriend on Earth," "Man Seeking Woman" is an absurd and terrifically filthy comedy about a man surviving a devastating breakup. Each episode takes one particular reality of single life to a wickedly funny extreme. In the pilot, Josh (Jay Baruchel) must deal with the fact that his ex-girlfriend has found a new boyfriend immediately -- and while everyone around him is encouraging Josh to be the better man and embrace her new beau, he's the only one concerned that the new boyfriend is literally »

At this point, the question isn’t whether Julia Louis-Dreyfus will score her fifth consecutive nomination for her role as President Selina Meyer on the HBO comedy “Veep,” but whether her winning streak will end. The actress has watched her character go from the titular vice president to leader of the free world, collecting a string of statues along the way. While Candice Bergen managed to score five wins for “Murphy Brown,” even she didn’t do it in a row.
But there are some new faces poised to take the prize this year, from Golden Globe winner Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) to Amy Schumer (“Inside Amy Schumer”), who is on a hot streak herself. In addition, many actresses who have never scored a nom are coming off great second seasons, including Ellie Kemper (“Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), Tracee Ellis Ross (“Black-ish”) and Constance Wu (“Fresh Off the Boat. »

Kirsty Capes with ten stock female characters Hollywood needs to stop writing…
From Mary Sues to Disposable Women, Hollywood seems to have a problem with writing interesting and original female characters. It’s not a problem, I would argue, that seems to happen with male characters, and I for one find it interesting, if not a little disheartening, to pick apart some of my favourite women in film and realise that they are just another trope.
In an attempt to better identify when we’re presented with one of these tropes, I’ve put together a list of the most commonly occurring ones. My disclaimer is that, as you will see, some great characters and movies appear on this list, and identifying a character as a trope is in no way a reflection upon her or the movie as a whole. Some of the most fundamental tropes are also some »

Spoilers for New Girl's fifth season finale, "Landing Gear." The episode just aired on Fox last night. Creator and showrunner Liz Meriwether spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future direction of the series and the eventual New Girl TV series finale.

There's nothing like an actual rain cloud to interrupt your day.
Branch (Justin Timberlake) and Poppy (Anna Kendrick) are searching for a troll tree, when Cloud Guy appears, and tries to set them off track. Rain clouds are kind of known for doing that, although this particular cloud does seem to have good intentions.
The fun clip is getting us super excited for Trolls, which could very well be like Shrek for this generation. With a voice cast including Timberlake, Kendrick, Zooey Deschanel, James Corden, Russell Brand and Gwen Stefani, the film is bound to be both musical and hilarious.

The Cannes Film Festival is in full swing this week, with DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox hitting the Croisette to debut new footage from their animated feature Trolls, arriving in theaters November 4. For those who aren't at the film festival in France, the studio has released a first look clip from the movie, featuring Justin Timberlake's Branch and Anna Kendrick's Poppy meeting a new friend. It's been several months since the first trailer arrived in January, so hopefully we'll be getting a second trailer very soon.
From the creators of Shrek comes the most smart, funny and irreverent animated comedy of the year, DreamWorks' Trolls. This holiday season, enter a colorful, wondrous world populated by hilariously unforgettable characters and discover the story of the overly optimistic Trolls, with a constant song on their lips, and the comically pessimistic Bergens, who are only happy when they have trolls in their stomach. »
It was a steady night of comedy farewells on Fox on Tuesday as New Girl ended its fifth season with a wedding and Grandfathered (0.6/2) and The Grinder (0.6/2) went out with a bit of whimper. With NBA and NHL playoff action elsewhere on the dial last night, The networks’ Jon Stamos-led show was down a tenth from last week while its Rob Lowe-led series was up a tenth from its May 3 offering. Fox hasn’t renewed either newbie yet, while the Zooey Deschanel show was picked up… »
“New Girl” producers probably aren’t tossing much wedding rice this morning, as Tuesday’s second nuptials episode actually slipped from the first. That said, 9 o’clock viewers are harder to attract than 8 p.m. eyeballs are, and both half-hours ticked up one-tenth of a Nielsen ratings point from last week. CBS and NBC once again tied atop the key 18-49 demographic in primetime, as “NCIS” and “The Voice” both rose. CBS again easily topped total viewers.

Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick just performed the duet of your dreams. After a screening of select footage from their upcoming film Trolls, Timberlake, 35, and Kendrick, 30, took the stage to surprise one Cannes Film Festival audience with a special musical performance. The two sang a cover of Cyndi Lauper's hit "True Colors" from the film's soundtrack. "We are Anna and Garfunkel," Timberlake joked as he introduced the pair. "Okay, we are going to give this a go but you guys have to be nice, okay?" Before they began singing, Kendrick joked about how nervous she was for the performance. »

The 69th Cannes Film Festival doesn’t actually kick off until this evening with Woody Allen’s 2016 effort Café Society, but that didn’t stop the recently sold DreamWorks. After around 20 minutes of footage was screened very positively to a very warm audience, mostly made up of its target demographic, Kendrick took to the stage to perform their rendition of True Colors, which features in the movie.
Here’s a little more about Trolls before we share footage of the duo performing.

Like any good sitcom, New Girl's season five finale had a beautiful wedding that was only able to take place after about a billion obstacles got in the way of the bride and groom. But don't worry, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) and Cece (Hannah Simone) actually tied the knot! We'll get into that in a minute, because first we need to talk about what happened with our other favorite New Girl couple, Nick and Jess (sorry, Winston and his prank wife), seemingly made some strides in their relationship. But did they really? Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and Sam (David Walton) realized they weren't meant to be, and decided to part ways. That opened the door for Jess to realize her true feelings for »
Tonight’s Schmidt and Cece wedding won’t be the “New Girl’s” first nuptials; it won’t even be the second. But it will be the series’ best one (so far), if showrunner Liz Meriwether has anything to say about it. This has been a terrific season for the underrated comedy, one that had to endure six weeks without its titular character, due to Zooey Deschanel‘s real-life pregnancy. “It definitely scared me,” Meriwether told TheWrap of life without her quirky lead. “But then it worked out really well.” “Once we knew we were gonna do the show without »

In the weeks since Prince's passing, there have been numerous remembrances of the superstar's hilarious appearance on Fox sitcom "New Girl" back in 2014. Now, star Zooey Deschanel has opened up about her own experience working with the musician, and how the artist had some very specific demands about just who was -- and definitely was not -- allowed to cameo in the episode.
Deschanel appeared on "Conan" and discussed the surreal shoot, telling host Conan O'Brien that the concept for the episode -- Prince throws a party at his house in Los Angeles, which the "New Girl" characters attend -- demanded that some celebrities be there, too, since The Purple One wanted the experience to be as authentic to real life as possible (and obviously, when Prince has a party, his famous friends are going to show up).
But unfortunately for the "New Girl" crew, the decision to invite »

“New Girl” fans remember Prince’s cameo on the popular sitcom, but little do they know that he vetoed a Kardashian appearance – unfortunately, his request came a little too late. When Zooey Deschanel was a guest on “Conan” on Monday night, she explained how the late singer, who died in April at the age of 57, came to be on the show. “I got an email from his manager saying that he liked watching the show and wanted to come on,” she said. “I was definitely more than surprised, I didn’t picture him watching a sitcom, let alone my sitcom! »

Zooey Deschanel visited Conan Monday to talk about the time Prince made a rare appearance on an episode of New Girl. The actress first explained how the Prince casting came together before revealing that the late rocker nixed a major cameo for the 2014 episode.
The episode centered around a party scene with models Alessandra Ambrosio and Ana Beatriz Barros and Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw among those shown during the sequence. Absent from the episode, however, was an unspecified number of Kardashian family members, even though a few – including »
“Juliet, Naked” centers on Annie, the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan, and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered singer-songwriter Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan’s musical obsession.
CAA and UTA set up “Juliet, Naked” and are co-repping the rights.
