After four seasons, Fox has canceled Raising Hope. The show, starring Lucas Neff, Martha Plimpton, and Garret Dillahunt, will end with an hourlong episode to air on April 4 at 9 p.m. Though the show will live on in syndication, fans will no doubt be disappointed that no new episodes will be produced. The decision comes days after Fox greenlit a handful of shows for new seasons, including The Mindy Project. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia, and Raising Hope's amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," producer Mike Mariano said in a statement. "We planned our season-four finale with this possibility in mind and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we've chosen to say good-bye to the Chances and to Natesville." »

Given its consistently low ratings, it's somewhat astounding that "Raising Hope" managed to get four often terrific seasons on Fox. It's still sad to report that "Raising Hope" will have its series finale on Friday, April 4 with an hour-long send-off. "On behalf of myself, Greg Garcia and 'Raising Hope's' amazing cast and crew, I would like to thank our audience for tuning in and supporting us over the last four seasons," blurbs executive producer Mike Mariano, who took over as showrunner for Garcia this season. "We planned our Season Four finale with this possibility in mind, and hope our loyal fans enjoy the way we’ve chosen to say goodbye to the Chances and to Natesville. Thanks again, and we’ll see you in syndication." Often aired in erratic patterns with lengthy hiatuses, doubled-up episodes and early finales, "Raising Hope" will still hit 88 episodes by its finale. During its run, »

Any Day Now, 2012.
Directed by Travis Fine.
In the 1970s, a gay couple fights a biased legal system to keep custody of the abandoned mentally handicapped teenager that comes to live under their roof.
First of all it has to be said that this film isn’t like many other dramas of a similar ilk. Rather than bombard you with sentimentality and emotional set-pieces, it lets you make your own mind up about what’s happening.
We don’t waste much time in getting to the story as we see how Rudy and Paul (Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt respectively) first meet. Rudy performs in a drag act and Paul is a man who has only recently come to terms with his sexuality but as soon as their eyes meet, they almost immediately fall for each other. »
