Louis C.K. and Pamela Adlon bring Better Things to FX

20 January 2015 9:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Louis C.K. and FX have been tight since as early as 2010 when the comedian launched his hit show Louie on their basic cable network. The show has brought to audiences a whole new level to self-deprecation-style humor and promises to continue to push boundaries with its upcoming fifth season coming later this year. C.K. has no doubt brought good things to the network, like Emmy nominations as well as wins, but now he has his sights on Better Things.

The new comedy pilot will feature longtime friend and fellow comedian Pamela Adlon in the driver’s seat, says Deadline. It aims to mirror her real life, playing an actress and a divorced mother and is being referred to as “a female version of Louie.” C.K., who co-wrote the pilot, will executive produce Better Things, through FX Productions and C.K.’s Pig Newton Productions, and direct the pilot episode. »

Watch: 'Bad Day at the Office' Short to Start Your Week with Laughter

19 January 2015 10:48 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Some days you wake up, and life just kicks you in the bollocks." Yep. It's Monday, no ones wants to be at work, it's cold out there, the office probably has pranks planned. It's not going to be a fun day. Or is it? The short film Bad Day at the Office from director Nick Scott tries to put a spin on the old fashioned idea of a "bad day at the office". I won't even make the obvious Office Space comparison, because this is much more like Wes Anderson meets Lars von Trier than anything from Mike Judge, but whatever it takes to convince you this is worth 10 mins of your time. There's a polished, professional feel to this and the FX (including all the make-up) look great. It's not the best film I've ever watched, but it's the perfect short to start the week.

14 January 2015 10:34 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Half is a much more equal percentage than zero, no? Four women were nominated for five DGA awards in episodic television Wednesday morning, marking a giant step up from the film side of things where zero women made the cut — including "Selma" director Ava Duverney, who many expected to earn a slot. Jodie Foster earned nominations for directing episodes of both "Orange is the New Black" and "House of Cards," while "Homeland" dominated the drama category with two of the five nominations. Other big names to land nominations include Cary Joji Fukunaga for "True Detective," Louis C.K. for "Louie," Mike Judge for "Silicon Valley" and Jill Soloway for "Transparent."

HBO Announces Game Of Thrones' Season 5 Premiere Date

8 January 2015 3:48 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

We all know that winter is coming, but when will the premiere of the fifth season of HBO's smash hit series Game of Thrones arrive? Today, we find out. Game of Thrones, Silicon Valley, and Veep will premiere back-to-back-to-back on Sunday, April 12th, 2015 beginning at 9:00pm. Set your DVRs now - or if you can't, make sure to set an alarm to remind yourself to set your DVR when that date gets closer, because you definitely don't want to miss this night of television.

I haven't seen any of Veep (I know, I know - I've heard it's great, but I just haven't had time), but Silicon Valley was a pleasant surprise last season. The hilarious comedy about a start-up tech company skewers practically everything about the industry right now, and creator Mike Judge's comedic chops are just as strong as ever. Game of Thrones, of course, delivered another stellar season last year, »
