Seven months after it was first announced that Netflix is planning a 10-episode TV series sequel for the 2001 indie comedy Wet Hot American Summer, E! Online reports that the series is now moving forward. Production is scheduled to begin in January, although none of the original cast members from Wet Hot American Summer have been confirmed to return quite yet. David Wain, who made his feature directorial debut with Wet Hot American Summer, is executive producing alongside Michael Showalter, who co-wrote the movie with David Wain, Jonathan Stern, Peter Principato and Howard Bernstein.
Back in June, Michael Showalter revealed they plan on bringing the entire original cast back, which includes Paul Rudd, Christopher Meloni, Molly Shannon, Michael Ian Black, Zak Orth, Janeane Garofalo, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, Joe Lo Truglio, Elizabeth Banks and Bradley Cooper. Michael Showalter also revealed that the entire 10-episode series will take place on the first day of camp, »
Continuing its swift domination of the world’s collective free time, Netflix is apparently moving ahead with a miniseries that will serve as a follow-up to David Wain’s beloved 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer. E! News reports that the series, which will either be a prequel or a sequel to the original film, is set to begin production this January.
Wet Hot American Summer, though hardly seen at the time of its release, starred a ridiculous number of actors who would go on to become comedy A-listers, including Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks. One would imagine that most or all of the cast members would return for this series, though none of them have yet been confirmed (Netflix also has yet to comment).

Netflix has two bona fide original series hits on its hands with House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, but the streaming service is also very much in the business of “adapting” existing IP. Netflix gave us the fourth season of Arrested Development, it premiered the fourth and final season of The Killing, and it’s also home to the sixth season of The Clone Wars. While it continues to develop its own original programming in-house (including The Wachowski Siblings’ Sense8 and a slate of Marvel shows), it appears that Netflix is set to continue another existing property: Wet Hot American Summer. We heard earlier this year that discussions were taking place to produce a TV series continuation of David Wain’s star-studded 2001 cult comedy, and now word comes that Netflix is indeed moving forward with a sequel miniseries. More after the jump. The folks over at E! »

The 21st Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards Nominations were revealed Wednesday morning, serving as yet another precursor on the long road to the Oscars.
In the film categories, Birdman was the big winner, scoring four nominations, including for Michael Keaton, Edward Norton and Emma Stone, as well as the collective ensemble cast. Boyhood followed right in its footsteps with three nods for Ethan Hawke, Patricia Arquette and another ensemble nomination.
The big surprises of the morning’s nominations started with Jake Gyllenhaal for Nightcrawler, a bubble contender in a crowded Best Actor race, Jennifer Aniston for Cake, a bubble contender in a disappointingly less crowded Best Actress race, Robert Duvall in the poorly reviewed The Judge and Naomi Watts for St. Vincent (Watts was in Birdman as well, but that must’ve slipped SAG’s minds).

The Screen Actors Guild has announced the nominations for the 21st SAG Awards, with Alexander Gonzales Inarritu’s Birdman leading the pack with four nods, including the most prestigious, Outstanding Cast, where it will compete with Boyhood, The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Imitation Game and The Theory of Everything.
On the television front, HBO racked up 14 nominations in total, including mentions for True Detective, Boardwalk Empire, Veep and Game of Thrones. Meanwhile Modern Family is gunning for a record fifth consecutive win in the category of Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series. Check out the full list of nominations here…

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

As some of you may know, I'm a bit of a jack(ass) of all trades. I follow the film industry for Lr, and critique films. But I'm also an actor, I front a rock band, I'm a DJ, film editor, and director as well. Basically, when it comes to entertainment, there's nothing I don't do. For some time now, I've been mulling over bringing some of my other interests to Lr, and I'll be starting with the SAG Awards. How? Well, I've been a member of SAG for 6 years now and I also am part of the voting process. That means every year I am sent screeners of all the films being considered for awards.
Here's where a new running feature comes into play:
As I start receiving these screeners, I will write special reviews for each one and publish them here. Then, as we near the voting deadline, »

Earlier this morning, Universal released the first trailer for the upcoming musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2 and it was kind of fantastic. The follow-up looks to be every bit as fun and surprising as the first film, and it has Elizabeth Banks in the director’s chair to boot. Continuing on with today’s festivities, Universal has released a batch of new Pitch Perfect 2 images from the film, which reveal what Adam Devine’s Bumper has been up to since the first movie (hanging with Joe Lo Truglio, of course) and also give us a look at the Barden Bellas’ new addition Hailee Steinfeld. I’d go so far as to say that the first movie was the most entertaining movie I saw in theaters in 2012, so I’m fairly excited for this one. Check out the new Pitch Perfect 2 images after the jump. The film also stars Anna Kendrick, »

He had the numbers. And then he lost them. Josh Canfield thought he had won the battle against adversary Jeremy on Survivor: San Juan del Sur. But then Jaclyn — feeling dissed and dismissed by the men in her alliance — jumped ship and brought her boyfriend with her. They then twisted the knife by voting Josh (who appeared to be one of the few people in that alliance not burping and farting) out of the game and onto Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105) to discuss where it all went wrong. And you can now hear the entire chat right here on the InsideTV Podcast. »

Paramount Digital Entertainment, the studio that previously provided a pair of hits in Burning Love and The Hotwives of Orlando, has officially released its third reality TV parody. Beef, which stars Christopher Meloni as a deli owner-turned-judge, can now be downloaded from on demand platforms. Beef, created by Michael Ian Black, Joe Lo Truglio, and Jonathan Stern of Abominable Pictures, has Judge Judy in its sights. While Meloni's satirical take on daytime TV judges is the main attraction, Beef will follow the lead of other Paramount Digital series by loading up on guest appearances. Lizzy Caplan, Stefanie Beatriz, and Reckless Tortuga's James Pumphrey are a few of the familiar faces who show up across Beef's two-and-a-half-hour runtime. Here's the series trailer, courtesy of Paramount Digital: This time around, Paramount Digital is trying something new by opting for a direct release to VOD platforms rather than online streaming sites

For the third time, Paramount's digital studio is looking to strike gold with a reality TV parody. The first two attempts were both excellent; now, it's Beef's turn. Christopher Meloni (Law and Order: Svu's Elliot Stabler, among many other roles) is the star of a courtroom comedy that will combine heated arguments, guest stars, and cold cuts. If Burning Love is Paramount Digital's spoof of The Bachelor, and The Hotwives of Orlando is its take on The Real Housewives, then Beef is the studio's attempt to skewer Judge Judy. Meloni stars as Lou, a butcher who doles out justice from behind his deli counter. Want to air your grievances in front of him? Take a number. Once you reach the stand, be careful not to lose your head, or Lou will order you to cool down in the meat locker. As with Paramount Digital's other reality TV parodies, Beef »

Prepare to meet the woman who brought Gina into the world and the man who is at least half-responsible for Charles: Sandra Bernhard and Stephen Root will guest-star as parents on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fox confirmed today. Bernhard (Roseanne) will play the quirky mother of Chelsea Peretti's off-kilter administrator, while Root (Office Space) will pop up as the New York Italian father of Joe Lo Truglio's klutzy detective. Both will appear in the Nov. 9 episode of the police comedy and may return for additional installments. TVLine first reported the news. »

Disclaimer: Some sort of mishap happened and my review copy came without disc 2. Without any legal means to watch them online, I’ve done the review not watching 6 episodes, so when I refer to ‘all the episodes’ for example, I’m obviously not including those ones.
I’ve been waiting for an excuse to watch this show for months. I usually don’t go for TV shows, mainly because I don’t find time, but this is a show I didn’t stop hearing about. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to review it, thinking I’d get through it in a few days. Instead, I blitzed the whole thing in one awesome day.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Season 2, Episode 1, “Undercover”
Written by Prentice Penny
Directed by Dean Holland
Airs Sundays at 8:30pm Et on Fox
Brooklyn Nine-Nine is back on a new Sunday night slot, and it doesn’t take long for the series to settle back into its groove. The season premiere, entitled “Undercover,” recaptures the magic of season one, opening with Detective Peralta (Andy Samberg) ending an undercover sting operation after infiltrating the local mafia. Upon his return to the precinct, he’s quickly brought up to speed on the events of the past few months (the best gag comes when Boyle and Santiago arrive to the office wearing the same outfit). This is followed by Captain Holt allowing Jake 12 seconds to fill us in on his own highlights while covert: “I fixed a boxing match, smoked a whole cigar, found myself in a room with 12 guys named Sal, and missed you all so very much. »
Brooklyn Nine-Nine Fox Returns: Sept. 28 at 8:30pm Et/Pt Where We Left Off: Jake (Andy Samberg) professed his feelings for Amy (Melissa Fumero) before going undercover. Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) and Gina (Chelsea Peretti) got it on. What To Expect: Brooklyn Nine-Nine moves to Sunday night for Season 2, where it should continue to thrive. Jake’s undercover assignment will add a new dimension to the comedy. “We are going super dark,” jokes executive producer Mike Schur. “It’s going to make Law & Order: Svu look like a cartoon. It’s super bleak.” Also See: Fall TV Preview 2014: Returning series premiere … Continue reading →

If you don't love Brooklyn Nine-Nine, chances are, you're not watching it. Andy Samberg's cop comedy scored big at the Golden Globes this year (despite being nearly overlooked for Emmy nominations), and season two is airing on Sunday, Sept. 28. That's right: it's now airing right after The Simpsons on Sundays. Fox invited a group of reporters to Brooklyn Nine-Nine's La set this Summer, and we got some good details from the creators and cast about the second season of the hit. As a reminder, the first season ended with Jake (Samberg) getting "fired" from the NYPD and going undercover in a drug sting. Here's what's in store next! There will be a time-jump. Creator Dan Goor confirmed that no, the series will not pick up directly after Jake professes his feelings for Santiago (Melissa Fumero), and Gina (Chelsea Peretti) and Boyle (Joe Lo Truglio) wake up next to each other. »
