Betty White will put that big brain of Dr. Brennan (Emily Deschanel) to the test in this season of “Bones.” In an episode scheduled to air in October, White will play a “sharp as a tack, absolutely fabulous ‘squintern'” with a deep knowledge of fantasy football — a subject that just happens to be related to the crime in question. “Bones” comes back to Fox on Oct. 1, and, as TV Line reported earlier this week, »

Has Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s Charles found The One?
24 alumna Mary Lynn Rajskub will guest-star on Season 3 of the Fox comedy as the detective’s possible perfect match, the network announced Thursday.

A ‘X-Men’ favorite is heading to the courtroom on “How To Get Away With Murder,” plus another “X-Men” alum is “The Blacklist’s” new baddie. “The Good Wife’s” Archie Panjabi has booked her first TV role, after departing the CBS drama, and “Empire” is bringing a new pop singer into the studio in Friday’s casting roundup…
Much like Annalise Keating’s (Viola Davis) secretive nature, the network is staying mum on the “X-Men’s” star’s character details, but TV Line reports Janssen (“Hemlock Grove,” “Taken”) will play a brilliant defense attorney who takes her job very seriously — sounds like Prof. Keating may be meeting her match this fall.

Kalinda Sharman is taking her “in-house” investigating out onto the streets, as Archie Panjabi has copped her first post-Good Wife TV role. The Emmy-winning actress will guest star in a Season 3 episode of Fox’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine this fall. TVLine was the first to report the casting news. Per TVLine, Panjabi will play Lieutenant Knox, “a police officer who has her eye on Joe Lo Truglio’s Detective Boyle.” If Knox is anything at all like Kalinda, any type of interaction between her and Boyle, especially if it’s of the romantic kind, should be pretty terrific. Panjabi will appear in the second episode of Brooklyn‘s third season, which is scheduled to air on Oct. 4. In addition to starring as Kalinda on The Good Wife throughout the show’s first six seasons, Panjabi’s other TV credits include The Fall, the minseries The Widower, and the original British version of Life on Mars. »

It’s been a long road back to Camp Firewood.
It seems that ever since the release of the original Wet Hot American Summer movie back in 2001, writers David Wain and Michael Showalter have been teasing the idea of a reunion. However, given that the film featured a cast which included Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd - each only a fraction as famous at the time as they are now - the idea fast became a dangled carrot which seemed to get further and further from anyone’s grasp. It was going to take a Goliath to make it happen.
Enter Netflix, who in January announced (following a long period of speculation) that it would be stumping up the cash to get the band back together. »
Former “Good Wife” star Archie Panjabi is heading back to TV via Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” TheWrap has confirmed. Panjabi, who starred on CBS’ “The Good Wife” for six years, will guest star as Lieutenant Knox, a police officer with a crush on Joe Lo Truglio’s Detective Boyle. Her first return to the small screen since “The Good Wife” will come on Season 3’s Episode 2, which is slated to air Oct. 4.

This just in: Kalinda Sharma has joined the NYPD!
The Emmy winner will guest star as Lieutenant Knox, a police officer who has her eye on Joe Lo Truglio’s Detective Boyle. She’ll appear in Season 3’s second episode, slated to air Oct. 4.
This marks Panjabi’s first TV stint since wrapping her six-year run as Good Wife‘s high-skirted, »
Creators and co-writers David Wain and Michael Showalter, members of ’90s MTV sketch group “The State,” premiered “Wet Hot American Summer” — featuring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Amy Poehler — at Sundance in 2001. The summer-camp satire, set in 1981, floundered in limited release. But word-of-mouth, special screenings and the ever-rising profile of its cast cultivated a rabid fanbase.
Rumors about a sequel and other ways to revisit the source material circulated for years. In May 2014, Variety exclusively confirmed Netflix’s interest in returning to the fictional Camp Firewood. Now, with the July 31 debut of an eight-episode prequel series, the talent and execs recount 15 years of false starts, creative hurdles and scheduling snafus leading to “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.”
Wain (director): It first came out in New York. It grossed seven thousand dollars that weekend and we were like, “That’s not bad!” because it was only in one theater. »

Netflix’s usage metrics remain shrouded in mystery, but one needn’t be a genius to see what attracted the streaming service to “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp,” an improbable and wholly silly prequel to a 2001 movie most notable for all the people in it who went on to bigger and better things. Victory here was delivered before production began just based on who the producers got to return or, impressively, join in the festivities, to the point where it’s almost easier to rattle off who isn’t involved than provide a comprehensive list of who is.
In terms of garnering attention, pretty much everything after that is sheer gravy. The conceit of doing a “prequel” 14 years later to a production that already featured adults playing teenagers is, of course, the big joke. But director David Wain and writer-star Michael Showalter go one better by actually »

Six episodes were provided for review purposes.
For a platform offering instant pop culture gratification, it’s not surprising that Netflix’s original programming slate has leaned heavily on two things: name recognition and wish fulfillment. Breaking into a crowded market of prestige dramas and genre TV? Bring in Kevin Spacey and the Wachowskis. Courting comedy and comic book fans? Resurrect Arrested Development and Daredevil. Improbably combining the appeal of both is Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, an eight-episode miniseries that acts as the prequel to a little-seen 2001 comedy starring a collection of erstwhile unknowns. Wet Hot American Summer was ridiculous, unpredictable, and hilarious. The same can be said of both the new Netflix miniseries, and how it came to be.

Summertime is sleep-away camp time, but a new mock orientation video makes it clear parents probably wouldn’t want to send their kiddies to “Wet Hot American Summer” getaway Camp Firewood. Netflix unveiled the star-studded camp counselor film advertising its upcoming prequel to the 2001 cult classic on Thursday, and the event series looks like more fun than rope-swinging into a lake. In the clip, viewers will get to know a little about Susie (Amy Poehler), Gail (Molly Shannon) and Neil (Joe Lo Truglio), among others. All we get from Vic (Ken Marino) is an off-camera “Suck my dick!” response to Neil’s. »

With Wet Hot American Summer you tend to expect the unexpected, and that's exactly the route that the Netflix revival series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has taken per the hilarious first trailer.
Netflix Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp is a prequel to the original film and set during the first day at Camp Firewood rather than the last. What makes this turning back of the clock hilarious is that the cast is substantially older and now playing younger versions of themselves from the original film.
Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander, Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon, and Michael Showalter are all back from the Wet Hot American Summer movie to reprise their roles for the Netflix series. They are joined by newcomers Jon Hamm, »
Just a week after the second Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp trailer debuted, Netflix has released the third trailer, which features tons of new footage and famous cameos, arriving along with an awesome theatrical-style poster. The video re-introduces us to several stars from the original 2001 movie Wet Hot American Summer, such as Paul Rudd, Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Christopher Meloni, along with new casting additions Jordan Peele, John Slattery, Michael Cera, Josh Charles, Chris Pine, 'Weird Al' Yankovic and Jon Hamm. Netflix has also issued a few friendly reminders for "new campers" before the series debuts on July 31.
Welcome to Camp Firewood! Just in time for the July 4th holiday weekend, here are some reminders for all new campers: Remember to wear suntan lotion. It's totally normal to cry on the first night of camp. The sign up sheet for archery is posted on the target. »
After teasing the upcoming Wet Hot American Summer reboot with a goofy, VHS-tinted teaser, Netflix has offered an official trailer with a hilarious, enticing look at the star-studded prequel series, First Day of Camp.
The clip begins with talk of blossoming summer love and fun, as well as an uncomfortable Camp Firewood meeting that's literally crashed by Paul Rudd's surly, too-cool counselor Andy. When chastised for being a week late, Andy replies: "Whatever. It smells weird. Who beefed?" (Notably, the counselor supervisor is played by H. Jon Benjamin, and with any luck, »
After years of chatter about a prequel to David Wain’s 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer, Netflix finally stepped up to the plate and green-lit a miniseries reteaming the co-writer/director with a stacked cast of comedy all-stars. Now, the first full trailer for the series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, has arrived, and it’s an absolute riot.
The limited eight-episode series unfolds over the course of everyone’s first day at Camp Firewood back in the summer of 1981. Inexplicably, Wain was able to pull together literally everyone who appears in his movie, despite their staggeringly busy schedules, and also tap a bevy of newcomers for the prequel, including Jon Hamm, Kristen Wiig, John Slattery and Jordan Peele.

After a brilliant VHS-tinged teaser, Netflix has released the first full trailer for the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. This is the culmination of years of talk about a follow-up to the 2001 cult comedy film Wet Hot American Summer, as co-writer/director David Wain and his cast were keen on making a prequel in which the now fortysomething actors would be playing younger versions of their 2001 selves. They finally got to make it in the form of a Netflix miniseries, and result looks absolutely fantastic. As the title suggests, the eight half-hour episodes take place on the first day of camp back in 1981. Logistics be damned—Wain was able to wrangle nearly every single original cast member to reprise their roles, plus a slew of new faces like Jordan Peele, Kristen Wiig, and “introducing Jon Hamm.” This trailer highlights all of them, and it’s »

If you’re at work, make sure to plug in your headphones before watching the new Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp trailer.
Why? Let’s just say that Amy Poehler and F-bombs look like they’re going to be very cozy bunkmates in the buzzed-about Netflix series.
The Parks and Recreation star is just one of many famous faces showing up for the start of the fictional Camp Firewood’s summer season, which will be the focus of Netflix’s 8-episode series based on the cult comedy film.
