The title “Girls Night Out” was a fitting name for the panel that Fox held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood on Monday, as some of the net’s most prominent female figures turned up to talk their career beginnings, their shows and the challenges that come with working in the industry.
Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project”), Jane Lynch (“Glee”) Chelsea Peretti (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Alex Borstein (“Family Guy”), Yeardley Smith (“The Simpsons”), Liz Meriwether (“New Girl”) and Heather Kadin (“Sleepy Hollow”) were all in attendance at the panel. Lynch was sure to tease the audience with some info about “Glee’s” final season.
The Emmy winner said that they hope the last handful of “Glee” episodes all carry a very strong message with them, and even revealed they might get “some of the old kids back” to close out the show. She grew somber, however, when asked about Cory Monteith, »

The Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre, it's not. Fox's chosen venue for a June 2 Sleepy Hollow screening and Q&A, one part of a big Emmy push for the freshman drama, speaks volumes about how the network is positioning its Mvp from the 2013-14 season -- they'll woo voters at a mausoleum. The Hollywood Forever Cemetery mausoleum, specifically, is where stars Tom Mison and Nicole Beharie and executive producers Roberto Orci, Len Wiseman, Mark Goffman and Heather Kadin will show off the series (as well as footage from the upcoming sophomore run) to members of the TV Academy, WGA and DGA.

“I think that’s the point of any art, even one as lowly as TV comedy, is to make a connection,” Gervais said Tuesday night at the premiere of the second season of “Derek.”
Gervais told Variety that all of his work is “semi-autobiographical” and “Derek” was inspired by people like his mother, sister and sister-in-law, who were all care workers.
“Everything I do has been a labor of love to some degree. I’ve always written about what I know,” he said, »

If you're of the mind that there's already too much "Girls" in the world, well, take heed: The following just may send you over the edge.
During an event at the Television Academy's Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (March 13), "Girls" executive producer Ilene S. Landress, alongside the cast of the HBO series, teased a sold-out crowd with the possibility of a future film adaptation.
With the premiere of the "Veronica Mars" film on everyone's mind and the "Entourage" movie in production, the "Girls" team was asked if the polarizing comedy might ever see its own theatrical release, to which Landress responded, "Sure. Why not?"
Of course, her answer came with a caveat: "...if Lena [Dunham] and Jenni [Konner] and Judd [Apatow] have something left to say."
Somehow, it's hard to imagine a time may ever come when Dunham doesn't have anything to say.

Lena Dunham squashed rumors of her quitting acting , giving E! News a flat-out “no” when she was asked point-blank about her career Thursday night at the Television Academy’s an Evening With “Girls” panel.
The rumors started earlier this week with the release of a Glamour magazine piece where she is quoted as saying, “I don’t know if I’m going to want to act anymore.”
Dunham was joined at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in NoHo Arts District by cast mates Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke, Zosia Mamet, Andrew Rannells and producer Ilene S. Landress. They discussed criticism of the HBO show, whether “Girls” is scripted and rehearsed and even the time Mamet’s character had a doughnut-shaped hairstyle.
“It is rehearsed, but there’s a nice amount of improv in it … Lena uses it to help get us into the scene and character,” Kirk said.
The panel was moderated by Dave Karger, »
