28 July 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

As the critical acclaim and commercial audience for television has increased over the years, the demand for festivals dedicated to television, outside of over-arching festivals such as the San Diego Comic-Con, has proportionally increased. One of the most prominent television festivals that has arisen as a result has been Paleyfest. Conducted by the Paley Center for Media, the newest incarnation of the event is poised to be held once again in Los Angeles, running in September 2015 from the 9th to the 17th, and now the first wave of the lineup for the event has been announced.

Things will get kicked off on the 9th with two shows from NBC. The two panels from the channel will be for Truth Be Told and Undateable, with the Truth Be Told panel including castmembers Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Tone Bell, and Vanessa Lachey, among others. The Undateable panel shall include »

‘Community’ Stars Want Another Season & Movie; Ken Jeong Teases Cast Reunion

24 July 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Community” was granted a sixth season, after being axed by NBC and resurrected by Yahoo, but could there be a seventh? If were up to Ken Jeong, season seven couldn’t come quicker.

“If they had a seventh season, I would be begging to be on it,” Jeong told Variety, as he was leaving a day of work on his upcoming ABC comedy “Dr. Ken,” in which he stars and serves as an exec producer.

“I will do anything ‘Community’ related. That show was so important to me and I’ve learned so much from Dan Harmon and my fellow castmates about television, and I’ve really become a better actor from that show,” he added. “I’m really setting my hopes on a movie.

Watch the ‘Muppets’ Pilot Pitch for New ABC Series With Elizabeth Banks, Topher Grace (Video)

21 July 2015 4:04 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

If you’ve ever wondered what a TV pilot pitch meeting run by the Muppets would look like, now’s your chance to find out. ABC teased its upcoming primetime reality series featuring Jim Henson’s iconic puppets in a very unique first look on Tuesday. In the 10-minute video, Kermit the Frog introduces the idea of a reality show about them to the other Muppets, so Floyd suggests to do it in a crazy “documentary style video and cut to interviews,” which Gonzo secretly thinks is a bad idea.

Party Down: a Us sitcom that richly deserves your time

20 July 2015 9:27 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Hollywood-set comedy Party Down ran for two great seasons, with a cast including Adam Scott, Lizzy Caplan, Jane Lynch and more…

David Brent-isms. “The Gareth” (a haircut inversely as popular with the viewing public as “The Rachel”). Making us well up at the mere mention of Only You by Yazoo. Martin Freeman’s face.

Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s The Office gave us so much, not least its intermittently excellent Us remake and the many other sitcoms it inspired. Its hand-held single camera style and wryly observed mundanity became so seminal that for a period in 2009, it was technically illegal to launch a new Us sitcom that didn’t emulate them.

Thus arrived Modern Family and Parks And Recreation, two shows filmed in the mockumentary style for no discernible reason besides a love of The Office and its Us remake. (Parks And Rec grew out of NBC originally »

ESPYs 2015: Best Burns and Highlights

15 July 2015 10:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joel McHale opened the 2015 Espys Wednesday at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles with a lot of jokes for athletes and sports fans. As always, the host of “The Soup” nailed the sarcasm: “I know I’m the E! personality that you are so interested to see.”

He didn’t hold back anything during his opening monologue, handing out the digs left and right. He came out playing horse to Triple Crown-winning jockey Victor Espinoza and then noted that Donald Trump’s first act as president would be deporting Espinoza back to Mexico; and that the jockey would be fined by the NFL for whipping a three-year-old… horse, that is.

The evening also supplied many more burns and highlights:

Burn: There’s nothing like having friendly faces in the crowd when you’re hosting a big awards show. McHale had his “Community” co-star Ken Jeong in the audience for support, »

How Healthy is Your Dietc Watch the Trailer for 'That Sugar Film'

13 July 2015 4:58 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I have recently started building my diet around the Whole30 concept. I read Dallas and Melissa Hartwig's book and have been prepping the kitchen for the switch. Not because I necessarily need to lose weight (though there are a few lbs I'd like to shave), but because after talking to a friend and him telling me how much better he feels and sleeps, not to mention the waist trimming benefits, I figured I'd give it a twirl. Now the Whole30 way of eating means removing things like dairy, grains, soy and other items from your diet, but obviously one big contributing factory to unhealthy eating is sugar and man, it's in everything. I haven't officially started the Whole30 program (not doing the full 30 days until the second week of August), but I've basically been eating as well as I can without the proper preparation -- it isn't easy.

Ken Jeong on his biggest acting mistake: 'I cringe watching it back'

24 June 2015 12:26 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

In the seven years since his breakout role in "Knocked Up," Ken Jeong has played a string of extremes. His role on "Community" as the insane and diabolical Ben Chang has been unpredictable, but his turns in the "Hangover" series and "Role Models" (as the King of Laire, or Live Action Interactive Role-playing Explorers) have been just as funny and unsettling. That's why it's downright intriguing to watch him play a sensitive English teacher in "The Duff," a high school comedy starring Mae Whitman as a girl dubbed The Designated Ugly Fat Friend, a buffer for her hottie pals. We caught up with Jeong to discuss "The Duff," which was just released on Blu-Ray and DVD, and how he relished the chance to play a character who isn't threatening community college students for a living.  When you first heard about the "The Duff" and inevitably learned that the title meant "Designated Ugly Fat Friend, »

‘Seoul Searching’ Director: ‘This Country is Half Made Up of Minorities, But Cinema Doesn’t Reflect That’

18 June 2015 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Diversity stood front and center at Wednesday night’s premiere of Benson Lee‘s ensemble dramedy “Seoul Searching” at the Regal L.A. Live on the next-to-closing-night at the Los Angeles Film Festival.

“I was a huge fan of John Hughes and the ’80s except for the depiction of Asians,” he told the crowd. “This country is half made up of minorities but the cinema doesn’t reflect that.”

Lee noted that “Seoul” — the story of foreign-born Korean teens returning to a summer camp in their homeland — is the third film centered on Asian-Americans during the past two decades after 1993’s “Joy Luck Club” and 2002’s “Better Luck tomorrow.” It’s set in 1986, the same year that Lee attended such a camp.

The film debuted at Sundance in January — 17 years after Lee had first come up with the script — with a price tag of $2.2 million. “It’s not the kind »

'The Muppets,' 'Wicked City' lead ABC's Fall 2015 premiere plans

10 June 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Like CBS the day before, ABC announced its Fall 2015 premiere dates on Wednesday (June 10) morning, putting most of its launches in the traditional post-Emmys Premiere Week starting on Monday, September 21. Perhaps the most interesting detail in ABC's premieres announcement was the the official fate of the Tuesday 10 p.m. time period, which became vacated when ABC announced that it was pushing "Quantico" to Sunday and holding "Of Kings and Prophets" for midseason. That slot will now be filled by "Beyond the Tank" to start the fall and then the formerly midseason drama "Wicked City" beginning in late October. ABC's official roll-out will begin on Friday, September 11 with the premiere of "20/20," though you can decide if that really counts and a full roll-out. The following Monday, on September 14, "Dancing with the Stars" will have its two-hour premiere in its ordinary space, with "Castle" premiering the following week as premieres begin in earnest. »
