Comedy Central has given a return date to a pair of sketch comedians so close, they’re separated by a mere ampersand: Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele. Key & Peele, which picked up four Emmy nominations earlier this month, will kick off season 4 on Sept. 24 at 10:30 p.m. The 11-episode season will include such famous guests as Ty Burrell (who also appeared in season 1), Rashida Jones, Retta, Chelsea Peretti, and Jason Ritter, EW has learned.
But new episodes of their sketch show aren’t the only thing on their collective plate right now. During a Key & Peele panel at Comic-Con on Thursday afternoon, »

Now available to watch via various Video On Demand platforms, and coming to DVD next week (July 29), Cuban Fury stars Nick Frost in the tale of a man who learns how to dance the salsa so he can woo his new boss, Rashida Jones. But the two clips we have to share today do not feature Rashida Jones, who is the radiant love of my fantasies a very lovely woman. No, we have strictly manly men in these clips, specifically Nick Frost and Chris O'Dowd, the latter of whom looks to be an evil nemesis. In the first clip, O'Dowd boasts about his date with the aforementioned boss, while Frost seethes. Then, in the second clip, it looks like Mr. Frost has taken his salsa...

It’s hard out there for a Weir. For Sam and Lindsay Weir, high school is a constant stream of insecurity, embarrassment, painful self-discovery, and getting bullied by Rashida Jones in the middle of the hallway for not having any armpit hair. Hellish.
Freaks and Geeks is their attempt to survive that hell while finding some comfort and understanding in their assembled bands of like-minded outsiders: Sam’s Star Wars-quoting, rocket-launching geekburgers, and Lindsay’s too-cool-for-school, barely-tolerating-her-presence (or anything else) freaks.
We’ve seen 17 kabillion high school shows come and go, but pretty much all of them bleed together into a shallow, forgettable slush of debutante brunches, aggressively worthless love triangles, and vaguely blonde CW hair. In just 18 episodes, Freaks and Geeks rises above that by featuring the most beautifully bizarre outcasts in school (characters we actually want to meet instead of punch—usually) and inviting us into their hilarious, »

NBC's presentation at the Television Critics Association's 2014 Summer press tour took place on Sunday, and we were on hand to get all the juicy details on the network's fall schedule. We learned a few goodies about highly-anticipated new shows "Constantine" and "State of Affairs," plus, new info on the Emmys, their upcoming live musical, and more.
1. Walken the Plank?
Perhaps the biggest news of the day was the announcement that Christopher Walken has landed the role of Captain Hook in the live musical version of "Peter Pan" -- an event planned for a December 4th airing. The actor "will be the first tap dancing Captain Hook you've ever seen," according to NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt.
2. A Maya Rudolph show isn't off the table
There may be more Maya Rudolph coming to the network in the future. Her "Maya Rudolph Show" special was considered an "imperfect first episode" and she »

NBC's relationship comedy "A to Z" will answer a question TV fans never even thought to ask: Do Cristin Milioti (the Mother on "How I Met Your Mother") and Ben Feldman (Ginsberg on "Mad Men") have chemistry? That, and the conceit of following a relationship from beginning to end over the course of a single season, were the hot topics at the show's panel at the TCA 2014 summer press tour. Executive producer Ben Queen (a writer on "Cars 2" and creator of that short-lived Fox series "Drive" with Nathan Fillion and Emma Stone) said chemistry was the primary concern in casting. "When they got together to do the network test they had met each other literally a hour before. It was real electric chemistry. I had been told this existed and it's there," Queen said. While Feldman was more self-effacing ("Cristin had her job, they needed to bring in a »

Is A to Z‘s central romance already destined for failure?
Given that the new NBC comedy’s title suggests a beginning and, more importantly, an end, talk at the Television Critics Assoc. summer press tour in Beverly Hills on Sunday turned to the fate of the courtship for Andrew Zelda (played by Mad Men‘s Ben Feldman and How I Met Your Mother‘s Cristin Milioti).

Remember how much you loved Beyoncé and Jay Z's star-studded "On the Run" video? Well, get ready to freak out all over again, because she just shared a series of behind-the-scenes snaps from the shoot on her blog. The photos feature Beyoncé and her husband filming bank-robbery and getaway-car shots, as well as stills of a heavily bearded Jake Gyllenhaal, sisters Kidada and Rashida Jones, and Emmy Rossum, who portrayed a police officer in the clip. Also in the photo album is a black-and-white picture of Beyoncé and Blake Lively; Blake played the role of the singer's supportive best friend and looked just as smiley next to Bey as she did during their recent night out together at Gucci's Chime For Change event. Scroll through to see all the pictures of Jay Z and Beyoncé on set with their famous pals. Source: Beyoncé Knowles »

The Television Academy of Arts & Sciences released this year's Emmy ballots last week. Now that the ballots are out, it's time for our annual two-pronged experiment, in which Dan tries to predict the likeliest nominees in each major category, while I pretend that I'm an actually TV Academy member and pick the six nominees that would make me the happiest. We are, as always, playing by the Emmy rules, which means we can't argue for someone who didn't submit themselves (say, Alan Cumming for "The Good Wife"), can't move someone from lead to supporting or vice versa, and can't declare that "True Detective" is a miniseries and therefore clear more room in the drama categories. I'm also obviously limited by what I watched and what I haven't. I think I saw maybe three episodes of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" this season, for instance, and while I like the show a lot, »

The dance culture has seen an explosion of cinematic adaptations in recent years. There was Step Up in 2006 - the dan-com that launched the career of one Channing Tatum; MTV-funded urban success Save the Last Dance in 2001; and everyones favourite rags-to-Rojo story Billy Elliot in 2000. Going further back, classics such as Footloose (starring Kevin Bacon. Yes, believe it or not he used to appear in films), Dirty Dancing and Saturday Night Fever slide into shot, while one could even argue the suitability of Gene Kelly’s infamous musical number Singin' in the Rain...although for the purpose of this review, we’ll stick with dance as the main focus as opposed to an entertaining side-plot.
However, Cuban Fury is a beast like no other. While it may tap along to a similar beat, it’s underlying study is of a comical nature. Viewers are presented with 98 minutes of unadulterated ‘slapstick »
Director: James Griffiths
Running Time: 98 minutes
Special Features: Extensive hour-long Behind-the-Scenes Documentary, Outtakes, Deleted Scenes and More.
Cuban Fury is based around an original idea from Nick Frost, which follows the life of 30-something Bruce Garrett (Frost) who was once a child prodigy at Salsa but lost his passion for the dance after a rather horrible incident with older kids who took a dislike to his style. After he’s basically bullied out of his love for Salsa, his life flips forward 25 years and he’s working for an engineering company and lost his vibrancy for life.
When new boss Julia Matthews (Rashida Jones) joins the company that Garrett works for, he accidentally finds out that she’s dancing salsa in her spare time and his fire is relit and he’s »

Cuban Fury, 2014.
Directed by James Griffiths.
Beneath Bruce Garrett’s under-confident, overweight exterior, the passionate heart of a salsa king lies dormant. Now, one woman is about to reignite his Latin fire.
Adequacy. Cuban Fury is not a bad film. Nick Frost is a charismatic lead, Rashida Jones is an entertaining presence and Chris O’Dowd adds “something.” Exactly what that something is is debatable. Maybe it lies in his newfound ability to play uptight arsehole with a concerning sense of glee and accuracy. Ian McShane appears, as if patiently awaiting a cheque and Kayvan Novak doesn’t play a terrorist. All this culminates in what can only be described as truly adequate.

1987: Poised to sweep the floor at the UK Junior Salsa Championships, 13-year-old Bruce Garrett has fire in his heels and the world at his feet… Until a freakish bullying incident robs him of his confidence and his life is diverted down a very different path. So it is that 22 years later, having locked away his boyhood dreams, Bruce finds himself out-of-shape, unloved and »
Tubby funster Nick Frost steps out as the lead in salsa-based rom-com Cuban Fury. Frost plays Bruce, a former teenage salsa dancing extraordinaire who dons his Cuban heels once more in order to woo his new boss Julie, played by the lovely Rashida Jones. Standing in Bruce’s way are unpleasant colleague Drew, a none-more sleazy Chris O’Dowd and his own paralysing neurosis and shattered confidence.
Despite coming from a very televisual background – its director, James Griffiths, is best known (insomuch as he is known at all) for his work on Episodes and its writer and most of its stars made their names in TV – Cuban Fury stands up as one of the better examples of a British rom-com in recent years. »

The final few minutes of last month’s season finale of Parks of Recreation catapulted its characters all the way into 2017, leaving viewers with binders and binders of questions about what happens next. And while they might be wondering about the future on the show, they no longer are speculating about the future of the show: NBC announced last week that the upcoming seventh season of the much-loved, smart-and-sweet local government comedy would be its very last, with the final 13 episodes getting a midseason debut. Why is Parks coming to an end now? What can you expect from the final season? »

Elizabeth Banks, Elton John, Josh Groban and Tim Robbins are catching school spirit. The stars are joining the White House's Turnaround Arts program and adopting low-performing public schools, increasing the number of art teachers and musical instruments in those schools and using their household names to increase student engagement. The four along with Chad Smith, Frank Gehry, Clarence Greenwood (Citizen Cope), Doc Shaw, Marc Anthony, Rashida Jones, Russell Simmons, the Silk Road Ensemble and Troy “Trombone Shorty” Andrews are the latest “Turnaround Artists” added to a public-private program in the President's Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
