NBC Seeks TV Comedy Talent for New ‘Playground’

8 April 2014 4:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC aims to find fresh comedy voices through a talent-search initiative dubbed “Comedy Playground.”

The Peacock is inviting aspiring writers to submit short video pitches for original comedy projects to the website starting on May 1.

An advisory board of NBC-affiliated comedy talent will help execs select up to 10 finalists who will receive funding to produce a presentation.

The two winners selected will see up to five episodes of their show produced for airing on NBC in summer 2015. But the presentations of all finalists will be made available on the NBC Comedy Playground website. Viewers will be encouraged to vote for their favorite project to be developed as a digital series.

The Comedy Playground effort is part of NBC Entertainment prexy Jennifer Salke’s effort to find creative ways to develop new material for the network, something she has said is a priority for her department.

NBC Creates Playground To Lure Comedy Writers Outside Of NY/La Film Schools And Comedy Clubs

8 April 2014 4:02 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

NBC wants to find fresh comedic voices. NBC’s Entertainment President Jennifer Salke today announced “NBC Comedy Playground,” which the network is calling a “grassroots” initiative designed to invest in new “cutting-edge comedy” through a national campaign that offers aspiring comedy writers from across the country the opportunity to pitch ideas with the winners getting a show on the NBC schedule. Salke made the announcement at NBCU Press Day — a sort of itty bitty Summer TV Press Tour — in Pasadena. “In our quest to break new comedy at the network in addition to our team doing great work, I felt it was time to push forward a marriage between what’s happening on the internet and the network,” Salke said. NBC has lined up what it’s calling an all-star comedy Advisory Board comprised of A-list talent, including Aziz Ansari, Jason Bateman, Robert Carlock, Sean Hayes, Mindy Kaling, Jason Katims, »

'The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon' hosts Michelle Obama, but not Pope Francis

17 February 2014 11:00 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

With ratings-challenged NBC struggling to find its feet as the broadcast network world shifts and rolls beneath it, and with broadcast television itself being regularly lamented as having one foot in the grave and the other on slippery ground, one might be tempted to think the Peacock might as well fold its tail feathers for good.

But there is a center of gravity to the NBC universe, and it is every weeknight, right after your local news -- "The Tonight Show." On Monday, Feb. 17, that center shifts from its longtime home in Los Angeles (aka "beautiful downtown Burbank") to its ancestral home of New York, where it launched with host Steve Allen in 1954.

After the departure of host Jay Leno (again) following a 22-year run -- briefly interrupted by a failed experiment with Conan O'Brien in 2009-10 -- "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" makes its debut from Studio 6B at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in Manhattan. »

Jimmy Fallon talks 'Tonight Show': First guests? Will Smith and U2

19 January 2014 5:37 PM, PST | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

A month before he takes over NBC’s The Tonight Show from Jay Leno, Jimmy Fallon hosted a room full of reporters at a Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour panel. To help facilitate the transition (and possibly to unscrew Leno from the host chair), Fallon will appear on Leno’s last installment of The Tonight Show on Feb. 6 before relocating the L.A.-based talk show to New York for his Feb. 17 debut. Here are some highlights from Fallon’s Q&A during and after the session, which also included new Tonight Show executive producer Josh Lieb.

5 Burning Questions About Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show, Answered

19 January 2014 5:23 PM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Next month, Jimmy Fallon will be taking over The Tonight Show, and he came to the Winter TCA to talk about his takeover. He answered lots of burning questions we've had about the format of the show, including why the title has changed slightly, who'll be his first guests, and why he wanted to bring the show back to New York so badly. Why is the title changing? The new show is being branded The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which differs from The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, and Fallon says it's an homage to the origins of the show. "Starring" had been using from the beginning until Leno took over and used "with." Fallon says he wanted "starring" because it's more exciting. "'Starring' makes it like, 'Hey! we're in the business,'" Fallon said. Who's the first guest? Fallon was allowed to reveal the first guest of his Tonight Show: Will Smith! »

Jimmy Fallon Sets Will Smith, U2 As First Guests On ‘Tonight Show’

19 January 2014 4:44 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Jimmy Fallon has settled on Will Smith and U2 as the guests for his Feb. 17 debut on ‘The Tonight Show.”

Fallon was low-key and looked a little tired Sunday as he discussed plans for the regime change at the latenight institution. He’s been in regular contact with his predecessor Jay Leno, who gave him an important piece of advice.

“He said ‘You have to make your monologue longer,’ ” Fallon said. On “Late Night” Fallon’s monologues have been running three to four minutes; Leno’s run about nine to 10. Leno impressed upon Fallon the importance to covering a good slice of the day’s big news.

Fallon said he intends to continue to do the taped skits and bits that have been a highlight of his five-year tenure on “Late Night.” Moving the show back to New York was a priority for him, but he said he intends to »
