The Late Late Show With James Corden Premiere: Glad You Stayed Awake?

23 March 2015 11:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

“I know what you’re thinking: Oh look, Andy Richter’s got his own show!” giggled James Corden, kicking off his stint as host of The Late Late Show in utterly self-deprecating fashion.

And throughout his mild-mannered opening monologue, the British comic repeatedly referenced his surprise at being chosen to succeed Craig Ferguson in CBS’ 12:37/11:37c weeknight slot and his belief that most Americans have no idea who he is.

This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

Michael Chiklis, Cheryl Hines Join NBC Comedy Pilot ‘Cuckoo’

20 March 2015 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Chiklis and Cheryl Hines have joined the cast of the NBC comedy pilot “Cuckoo.”

The Lionsgate TV series is based on the BBC3 comedy series that starred Andy Samberg in its first season as a hippie who winds up married to the daughter of a conservative couple.

Chiklis will play a successful lawyer who is determined to rid himself of his son-in-law. Hines will play a fun-loving woman who welcomes the new member of the family, played by Flula Borg, and the changes in her daughter, played by Rachel Dipillo.

Landing Chiklis is a coup for the project. The Emmy-winning star of “The Shield” is known for his versatility with both comedy and drama.

Tim Long is showrunner and exec producer along with writers Robin French and Kieron Quirke. Ash Atalla, who shepherded the British series, is also an exec producer.

Doc Nominee Rory Kennedy Celebrates at Chateau Marmont

20 February 2015 7:02 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar week festivities made room for the serious on Friday as docu filmmaker Rory Kennedy, Oscar-nommed for “Last Days in Vietnam,” was celebrated at Dom Perignon’s fourth annual Academy Awards luncheon.

A mix of industryites (“American Experience’s” executive producer Mark Samels; producer Ron Yerxa; thesps Minnie Driver, Peter Fonda, Julian Sands and Cheryl Hines), fashionistas (Valentino’s Carlos Souza, Nicky Hilton) and friends of the producer-director (including “Still Alice’s” executive producer and Kennedy first cousin Maria Shriver) joined Kennedy at the Chateau Marmont for a flower-filled and bubbly-fueled luncheon on the hotel’s scenic garden terrace.

Hotelier Andre Balazs was the host along with executives from the French champagne house. First-time nominee Kennedy found that documentaries and champagne “go very well together, as it turns out.” Notably, the documentary feature category (unlike the director category) includes two women director nominees — Kennedy as well as “Citizen Four’s” Laura Poitras. »
