ABC Pickups Include Comedy About African-American Donald Trump — But He’s An Unlikely Mayor, With Advisors Who Actually Help

ABC Pickups Include Comedy About African-American Donald Trump — But He’s An Unlikely Mayor, With Advisors Who Actually Help
ABC has picked up four new series from its sister ABC Studios, including a new drama from Shonda Rhimes’ company, a drama about saving the world (starring Jason Ritter), a series about refugees… from America, and comedy that sounds like it might take a few cues from the recently installed White House inhabitant.

In “The Mayor,” Brandon Micheal Hall plays an aspiring young rapper, Courtney Rose, who decides – as a publicity stunt – to run for mayor. He did it solely to generate buzz and become rich and famous. Instead, he is actually elected mayor, an outcome he never predicted. Now he must lean on his mother (Yvette Nicole Brown) and friends, including Valentina (Lea Michele) to become the mayor he didn’t think he wanted to be.

Sound a bit Trumpy?

The series also stars Bernard David Jones and Marcel Spears. Executive producers include Daveed Diggs (Broadway’s “Hamilton”), writer Jeremy Bronson (“Speechless,

The Adventures Of Pete And Pete: a 90s Nickelodeon classic

Seb Patrick Aug 23, 2016

We look back fondly at the innate weirdness of Nickelodeon's 90s show The Adventures Of Pete And Pete...

At some point in the early 1990s – I forget the exact year, but research tells me it must have been somewhere around late 1993 or early 1994 – something unbearably exciting happened in our suburb of Merseyside. The rumours went around the school playground in hushed whispers: “Have the cable vans been to your street yet?” Yes, cable TV was on its way to Crosby, meaning that for the first time, a world of viewing beyond the ordinary four terrestrial channels was available to homes without a whacking great ugly satellite dish glued to the outside.

Aside from the three major Sky titans – the football, the movies and The Simpsons – by far the biggest reason we all wanted to get cable was access to not one, not two, but three channels dedicated

Watch the Unaired 'Clerks' TV Pilot Based on Kevin Smith's Movie

Watch the Unaired 'Clerks' TV Pilot Based on Kevin Smith's Movie
You may know that director Kevin Smith's first film Clerks spawned the Clerks animated TV series in 2000, although it only ran for one season. What you may not know is that, five years earlier, the indie hit was actually adapted for a live action TV pilot, starring Jim Breuer as Randall Graves and Andrew Lowery as Dante Hicks. The pilot was never picked up as a TV series, and now you can see why, since the full Clerks pilot has now surfaced online.

The pilot also features a few more faces you may recognize. Keri Russell, three years before starring on Felicity, plays Sandra, a tanning salon employee, with Rick Gomez, best known as Ada David Vasquez from FX's Justified, playing an ice cream parlor worker named Todd. Screenwriter Andr&#233 Nemec, who went on to write the fourth Mission: Impossible movie, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Promotions Invade Target (Exclusive)

‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ Promotions Invade Target (Exclusive)
With the May 1 release of Marvel-Disney’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” only two weeks away, dozens of promotional programs are kicking into high gear.

Products and promo campaigns tied to “Age of Ultron” and the superhero team — Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, the Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye — are ramping up at Acura, Dr. Pepper, Visa, Wyndham hotels, Harley-Davidson, Land O’Frost lunchmeats, Farmers Insurance, Hershey and the 1,800-store Target retail chain.

Target is selling 150 “Avengers” products, including 20 that are exclusive to the chain, including a voice-changer mask. Stores will have a giant Hulk on display — with eyes that follow shoppers.

“We are aiming these for fans, but as much for parents as kids,” noted Rick Gomez, senior VP of marketing. “We pride ourselves on doing original rather than cookie-cutter products.”

It’s a familiar path for Target, which has annual revenues of over $70 billion and has racked up more than 100 licensing partnerships,

See the first teaser for the final season of 'Justified'
FX's Justified will return for its sixth and final season in January, and while the additions of Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt to the cast recently made headlines, the first teaser puts the focus firmly on Timothy Olyphant's Raylan and Walton Goggins' Boyd. Watch EW's exclusive first look below. It's a reminder that Raylan was ready to leave Harlan (alive) until he decided to do one final thing—set Ava (Joelle Carter) up to rat on Boyd, presumably to help Vasquez (Rick Gomez) and Rachel (Erica Tazel) get to Boyd's new business partner, Katherine Hale (Mary Steenburgen).

Justified, Ep. 5.11: “The Toll” shakes up, but doesn’t fix, the season’s endgame

Justified, Season 5, Episode 11: “The Toll”

Written by Benjamin Cavell

Directed by Jon Avnet

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX -

It’s been a pretty dark week for lovers of fine TV drama, and Justified compounds the issue with one of their grimmest episodes ever. “The Toll” doesn’t do much to clarify exactly what this season has been about, or make the Crowes a more compelling central force, but it at least shakes up the dynamics enough to make for a season endgame that…well, frankly, I have no idea will consist of, beyond the Raylan v. Daryl Jr. element.

Two major acts of violence punctuate the episode, though only one of them really works to raise the stakes. The first, and the most obviously game-changing, is the shooting of Art. Just to get it out of the way: I highly doubt Art is headed for the

'Justified' Season 5 premiere: 'A Murder of Crowes' sets sights on Harlan

In discussing the Season 5 premiere of "Justified" before it aired Tuesday night (Jan. 7), I used the words "lived-in" and "familiar" to describe it. Depending on how you read them, those might not be the most flattering terms to describe a TV show in its fifth year.

Parts of "Justified" have always felt familiar, built as it is on the foundation of westerns and cop shows. What really stands out in the premiere, though, is how the show has succeeded in creating a world where Raylan Givens, Boyd Crowder and most everyone else we spend time with is surrounded by their past. Old associations, acquaintances and grudges are next to impossible to shake. There's now an almost physical feeling of the past hanging over them.

It's what's driving Boyd in his new heroin business with Wynn Duffy -- he needs fast money to help get Ava out of prison, only to

Justified: A Marathon Diary – Four Seasons in One Week

  • HeyUGuys
A week ago I knew very little about Justified. It was a show that had been recommended to me on a number of occasions since it first debuted in 2010, but one that I’d just never gotten around to watching. I had a vague idea that it was about a detective of some sort, and that an actor I like a lot, Timothy Olyphant, was in the lead role, but not much more than that.

Luckily for me, this week sees the release of Justified Season 4 on DVD and Blu-Ray, as well as the Season 1-4 box-set, the latter of which I was able to get my hands on to put together this feature. I decided to set myself a viewing challenge and catch up with the entirety of the show so far in just seven days. Four seasons. 52 episodes. Approximately 36 hours of television goodness. An extremely attractive, but also incredibly daunting prospect.

Band of Brothers – Where are they now?

Twelve years ago, HBO put to screen a miniseries that was one part Television event, one part historical drama, which had the considerable backing of executive producers Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks and the hype of being something of a spiritual successor to their highly acclaimed war film Saving Private Ryan. Through ten one hour long episodes, essentially using TV as a medium to explore a vast and epic journey through the Second World War that would simply be impossible to map on the big screen, and with Stephen E Ambrose’s critically acclaimed non-fiction book as source material and a huge cast representing a collective of real world heroes, one of the most ambitious storytelling exercises the small screen has ever mounted was brought to life. The result was much fanfare, both critically and among the masses, a recurring trope that continues to this day, and the fledgling start

Justified, Ep. 4.05: “Kin” rallies a great supporting cast for a rollicking hour

Justified, Season 4, Episode 5: “Kin”

Written by Fred Golan and VJ Boyd

Directed by Peter Werner

Airs Tuesdays at 10pm Et on FX

As a preface, can we just…? Along with the outstanding regular cast (and an appearance by underrated ex-regular Natalie Zea), “Kin” finds time for past guests Stephen Tobolowsky, Patton Oswalt, Jim Beaver, Romy Rosemont, Jere Burns, and Raymond J. Barry, adds the great Gerald McRaney, and even carves out a little for Jacob Pitts to actually get some substantial material. It’s taken a while, but finally, another drama series can challenge The Good Wife for the most ludicrously stacked cast on television. (All the Deadwood alum shouldn’t be a surprise given Olyphant’s producer status, but that doesn’t temper the greatness. Too bad John Hawkes will be busy courting Oscars for the foreseeable future.) If “Kin” went and trotted out that cast list and

Watch: Funny or Die Explores the Dark Side of the 'Pete & Pete' Reunion
Nickelodeon TV series "The Adventures of Pete & Pete" ran from 1993 to 1996 and won the hearts and minds of late Gen-Xers with its charmingly surreal take on childhood and guest stars like Steve Buscemi, Iggy Pop, Chris Elliott, Janeane Garofalo, Debbie Harry, LL Cool J and Patty Hearst. Created by Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi, the show developed a considerable cult following over the years since its run ended, leading to cast and crew reunions taking place in New York and L.A. in 2011 and 2012 and once again last month as part of Sf Sketchfest in honor of the show's 20th anniversary. But is it possible that all this nostalgia comes at an unseen and dark cost? Funny or Die came up with the following spoof video featuring Michael C. Maronna (Big Pete Wrigley), Danny Tamberelli (Little Pete Wrigley), Toby Huss (Artie, the Strongest Man in the World) and Rick Gomez

'Adventures of Pete & Pete' reunion courtesy of Funny or Die

The Adventures of Pete & Pete 20th Anniversary Reunion from Michael C Maronna

There is definitely a generation of us adults who are completely bonkers over their favorite Nickelodeon shows from the early to mid-1990s -- "Hey Dude," "Salute Your Shorts," "Fifteen," "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

Wouldn't reunions of those shows be a ton of fun? Well, Funny or Die got the band back together from the classic "Adventures of Pete & Pete" for its 20th anniversary at the Sf Sketchfest in January and above is the video of the reunion.

Nice to see titular Petes Michael C. Maronna and Danny Tamberelli on hand, plus Endless Mike Hellstrom (Rick Gomez) and Artie (Toby Huss), though we're disappointed that Ellen (Alison Fanelli) is nowhere to be seen. The video is extremely Nsfw, but it's still a lot of fun.

Remember Them?

Remember Them?
The cast of beloved Nickelodeon kids show, "The Adventures Of Pete & Pete," got back together for a 20th anniversaryreunion show at this year's Sf Sketchfest, much to the delight of 90s kids everywhere. But how do the former co-stars act when they're not on stage?

Funny Or Die has the answer to that question in the new sketch above, which shows Big Pete (Michael C. Maronna), Little Pete (Danny Tamberelli), Artie (Toby Huss) and "Endless" Mike Hellstrom (Rick Gomez) meeting just a few hours before their reunion show.

So what has everyone been up to these last 20 years? Well, Artie, Mike and Little Pete could probably be doing better, but Big Pete is the "V-Neck Sweater King Of America!" Not bad for a former child star.

The Apparition - Blu-ray Review

Despite an eerie premise, The Apparition quickly squanders any of the chills the opening sequence managed to create and instead presents a .by the numbers. haunting movie that fails to give the audience one real scare. Written and directed by Todd Lincoln, the film stars Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton, Julianna Guill, Luke Pasqualino, Rick Gomez, Anna Clark, and Marti Matulis. The film opens with grainy documentary footage of 1973 experiment, called "The Charles Experiment," where six people attempted to contact a dead man named Charles Reamer by staring at a drawing of his picture in hopes of harnessing their combined psychic powers to summon his spirit into the room. This opening sequence is the scariest moments

The Apparition Fails to Materialize: A Movie Review (Blu-Ray)

*full disclosure: a Blu-ray screener of this film was provided by Warner Bros. for review. **some spoilers are below. Director/writer: Todd Lincoln. Cast: Ashley Greene, Sebastian Stan, Tom Felton, Julianna Guill, Luke Pasqualino, Rick Gomez, and Anna Clark. The Apparition is a dreadful film. It seems created by a machine as the film lacks soul and power. This title is ineffective as a horror film on so many levels. The characters are drab, the premise is bare bones and there is almost nothing in this film that creates for any thrills. The Apparition is likely targeted towards the tween market with its PG-13 rating. Even this audience might find themselves yawning at this lackluster production. The weak story centrally focuses on Ben (Sebastian Stan) and Kelly (Ashley Greene). This couple has recently moved into an abode outside of Los Angeles. Their new house begins to sprout mold and dirty
