Cargo Entertainment and Radiant Films Intl. have entered into a strategic partnership to expand their combined production, finance and sales operations.
Cargo has made an investment in Radiant, with Radiant’s president and CEO, Mimi Steinbauer, assuming the additional role of Cargo’s president of distribution. Steinbauer and the sales team, which includes newly appointed Radiant senior VP John Short, will handle foreign sales for all Cargo titles under the newly formed partnership.

The companies will work side by side on joint initiatives, but continue to operate as two separate entities. Radiant Films Intl.’s slate of titles being sold at Cannes include the newly announced romantic comedy “Carrie Pilby,” starring Hailee Steinfeld and Tom Wilkinson. »

Fall’s primetime schedules may wind up being light on laughs as networks opt to wait out the crunch for the tricky business of launching new comedies.
NBC’s fall campaign features only two scripted comedies, both on Friday. The Peacock is sticking with its plan to remake Thursday as a drama night after years of uphill battles in launching new half-hours on what used to be Must-See TV turf. NBC has ordered five new comedies but only one of them will be on in the fall.
“Undateable,” which is taking the promotion-friendly step of airing all live episodes in its third season, and newbie “People Are Talking” will likely be the first comedies to air Fridays on NBC since the fall of 1991. That year, the Peacock parked the final season of “Dear John” in the Friday 9 p.m. hour in tandem with the short-lived “Flesh ‘N Blood.”

Nick and Jess, round two?! In addition to a surprising and totally perfect proposal, which we're still swooning over, New Girl's season four finale saw two other major happenings on Tuesday night: Coach's (Damon Wayans Jr.) bittersweet exit, as he moved to New York with Mae (Meaghan Rath), and Nick (Jake Johnson) and Jess (Zooey Deschanel) complicated relationship was finally re-addressed via a "sex mug." While the former couple didn't end up hooking up, the door was definitely left open for a potential reunion, as both Nick and Jess admitted they still think of each other in that way. After chatting with creator Liz Meriwether all about Schmidt and Cece's major finale moment, as well »
Schmidt and Cece are tying the knot! That means New Girl season 5 is going to have plenty of wedding talk when it returns to Fox in the fall. Because of star Zooey Deschanel's pregnancy the cast has already filmed the first few episodes of the new season, and they dished to Us Weekly about what to expect from the upcoming installments.

Here's hoping New Girl threw Zooey Deschanel quite the baby shower! In tonight's epic season four finale (one of our favorite episodes of the show ever), one of the Fox sitcom's main couples took a major step in their relationship: They got engaged! Warning, spoilers ahead! That's right, Schmidt (Max Greenfield) finally made good on the (five dollar addition to the douchebag jar worthy!) promise he made to Cece (Hannah Simone) when he first met her, asking, "Girl, will you marry me?" Cue the waterworks! But the couple's surprise proposal, which you can re-watch and cry over below, almost went down in a completely different way, creator Liz Meriwether tells E! »
Zooey Deschanel is going to be a mom later this year—and slipping into a bikini post-baby is apparently dead last on her list of priorities. In fact, such a triviality didn't even make the list. "Haven't we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person," Cosmopolitan's June 2015 cover girl, who's expecting her first child with producer boyfriend Jacob Pechenik, told the magazine. "I've always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny." We wouldn't exactly call the fab cleavage and teeny waistline that Deschanel is flaunting for Cosmo average... but she insists that she has »
Principal photography is set for September on Carrie Pilby, in which Steinfeld plays a genius Harvard graduate who tries to find love and happiness in New York with the help of a simple checklist.
“I knew I had to come aboard the project as soon as I finished reading the script,” said Steinbauer (pictured). “It is one of the most delightful and heartwarming screenplays I’ve read in ages. This »

Zooey Deschanel is speaking out against the "Skinny-is-better" mentality. The "New Girl" star is looking red hot in the cover of Cosmopolitan’s June issue, where she opens up about why she won’t be posing in a "body after baby" photo shoots. The actress is pregnant with her first child with fiancé Jacob Pechenik – and says she won’t be sharing any pics of her bikini bod with her fans after she gives birth. "Haven’t we all seen those pictures of a sexy new mom in a bikini after one month? I will not be that person," she tells the mag. "I’ve always gone my own course and never been someone who had the need to be super skinny. I like a healthy look." "I don’t buy into that skinny-is-better mentality," the 35-year-old continues. "I just eat healthy and work out and don’t worry about my weight too much. »

New Girl, new house! Zooey Deschanel is entering the final months of her pregnancy, and the New Girl leading lady is prepping for baby by selling her three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom Hollywood Hills home. Asking $2.195 million for the property, Deschanel, 35, originally purchased the country-style estate from Mark Ruffalo, Variety reports. Fitting with the actress' adorkably quirky personality, the 2,957-square-foot home is filled with down home, country accents, like the living room's green plaid wallpaper, and a bedroom's floral drapery. As for amenities, the hit actress keeps [...] »

This week, Variety reported on a study that was released confirming what many already know about the film industry, or at the very least anecdotally: Women are having an increasingly hard time breaking in.
The study showed that there’s a large gender gap between independently financed and directed projects by women when compared to projects within the studio system. The Sundance Institute and Women in Film looked at movies in competition at Sundance between 2002 and 2014 compared to the top 1300 grossing films between the same time period. Men appeared at Sundance at a ratio of 3 to 1 more often than women, but an even more staggering 23 to 1 when looking at studio films.
Further, half of the industry executives surveyed believed that films directed by women did not appeal as broadly as films directed by men. A quarter of those surveyed added that they shared a “perceived lack of ambition” in women directors, »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jimmy Fallon and Russell Crowe celebrated Earth Day by performing Jimmy's protest song about the Bp oil spill, which is basically a work of poetry. Both Jimmy and Russell need to abandon their careers and become full time folk singers immediately. Also the name of this song is "Balls In Your Mouth," so there's that....
Time for another edition of Obama Expressions on "The Tonight Show!" It's pretty simple, really: Jimmy Fallon analyzes and names Potus's lesser-known expressions. This week's favorites include the "'Sup, Bae" and the "Bitch, please."
Speaking of Obama, Blake Lively visited "Late Night" and dished about the super-awkward time she met Potus and completely word-vomited. »

Who's that girl? It's Jess—not Zooey Deschanel. The pregnant New Girl star recently spoke to the Huffington Post about her character's "adorkable" persona—one that she personally doesn't identify with. "That was something that was calculated, you know what I mean?" she said of the term, coined in 2011 to promote New Girl's premiere. "That was our marketing department at Fox and they did a really good job with our first season, but that's a word that describes the character that I play, not me. I don't personally have identification with that word myself." "In addition, I don't really care what people think of me," added the »
Unfortunately I have to tell you that "The Peanuts Movie" is using a Zooey Deschanel catchphrase to describe one of its classic characters. Do I like Zooey Deschanel? Yes! But I think it's kind of a shame that a classic comic strip is lifting ad copy from a 2010s Fox series. In fact, I feel like the Red Baron just socked me in the gut. Here's the new poster featuring Marcie, who is easily one of the greatest comic strip characters of all time. She trolled Peppermint Patty like an actual troll, lingering behind her with murmured objections all day. Here's how "The Peanuts Movie," out November 6, is choosing to describe Marcie. Yep. Adorkable. It's 2011 and Marcie is strumming her ukulele and bugging Siri about the rain. She's even reading "War and Peace," which is a pretty twee move on her part. I love the Peanuts and always will, but »
