‘Family Guy’ Won’t Do Any More ‘Star Wars’ Parodies, and Here’s Why

23 July 2016 2:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Don’t expect to see any more “Star Wars” parodies from Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy.”

The show produced three “Star Wars” homages (2007’s “Blue Harvest,” 2009’s “Something, Something, Something Dark Side” and 2010’s “It’s a Trap!”) several years ago. But that was back before Disney acquired Lucasfilm and jumpstarted the franchise.

“The new regime is a little more difficult to deal with,” executive producer Alec Sulkin said. “Before we were just dealing with Lucasfilm. Seth [MacFarlane] had a good relationship with them. It’s not that Seth has a bad relationship with Disney, but they’re a bit more rigid.”

Executive producer Rich Appel said it was understandable, as “they’re a little more careful now that they’re rolling out new movies.”

‘Blunt Talk’ Season 2 Teaser: Patrick Stewart Gets His Own Porn Parody

21 July 2016 9:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

With “Blunt Talk” just a few months away from debuting its sophomore season, Starz has released a new trailer signaling the return of its Patrick Stewart–led comedy. As his eponymous character, a British newscaster who moves to Los Angeles, apparently has fans in the adult-film industry, Stewart finds himself in a compromised position in the 30-second clip first uploaded to the show’s Facebook page. Watch it below.

The straitlaced seriousness of Professor X and Jean-Luc Picard isn’t exactly on display here, of course, with Stewart tapping into a rather different set of skills for the show. Stewart has said previously that the show has provided many occasions for him to say, “I’ve never done that before”; this, presumably, is no exception.

‘Blunt Talk’ Season 2 Trailer: Walter Blunt Gets Spanked In Porn Parody

21 July 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

A porn parody of Blunt Talk. Yes that’s what coming up in Season 2 of Jonathan Ames’ Starz’s comedy, executive produced by Seth MacFarlane. There’s spanking, groping, well, you’ll see. Patrick Stewart’s Walter Blunt and company have some big fans in the adult film industry who want to immortalize Blunt’s cable broadcast, but perhaps not the way they envisioned. In Season 2 will Walter will reunite with an old flame (Lesley Anne Warren), who’s in town to investigate a… »

Why you should be watching the great 'BoJack Horseman'

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman is one of the very best shows on television. It was in its first two seasons (even if it took me a while to realize that in the first), and it still is in its third, which Netflix debuts tomorrow. I burned through all 12 episodes of the new season over a couple of days, loving all of them, yet also feeling at a bit of a loss for what to write in a traditional advance review of the series. BoJack Horseman is gonna BoJack Horseman at this point, and while the show has become more narratively and technically adventurous in some ways — the new season's fourth episode, set at a film festival on the ocean floor, is a delight in both ways — it's still fundamentally the same series it's always been: an improbable blend of cartoon absurdity and profound melancholy that makes it a great comedy and drama at the same time. »

Both ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ defeated the haters at the box office

18 July 2016 5:18 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

After months of speculation, YouTube video mass disliking, and vitriol-spewing across the Internet, the Ghostbusters reboot finally hit theaters this weekend. And it did just fine, thank you very much. Ghostbusters earned $46 million in North America in its first weekend. While that number’s having some outlets blast out headlines like “Is a $46 million weekend big enough?” and “Why the Ghostbusters reboot may haunt Sony,” there is one positive milestone I have to highlight here. Ghostbusters amassed the biggest opening weekend gross for any live-action comedy in 2016. Last year’s largest opening weekend for a non-animated comedy: Pitch Perfect 2. (The a cappella sequel also went on to be the highest grossing live-action comedy of the whole year.) Pitch Perfect 2 earned more than other 2015 comedies like Seth MacFarlane’s Ted 2 and Seth Rogen movie The Night Before. This weekend, Ghostbusters grossed more than twice as much as this year’s Rogen comedy, »

‘Childrens Hospital’ Emmy Nominations: How Rob Corddry’s Web Experiment Turned Into an Awards Contender

15 July 2016 1:37 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In May 2007, Rob Corddry was out of a job for the first time in years. He had just left a plum correspondent role on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart,” to headline Seth MacFarlane’s first live action comedy, “The Winner.” But that sitcom was cancelled after six episodes. Then, the television writer’s strike hit.

“I had nothing to do and no money and a baby,” Corddry told IndieWire. “Luckily, we were allowed to do Internet stuff during the strike.”

That led Corddry to create “Childrens Hospital,” the absurdist hospital drama satire that began as a web series on the now-defunct TheWB.com in 2008. Adult Swim then picked it up, and “Childrens Hospital” ran for seven seasons and 86 episodes before wrapping up in April.

“Children’s Hospital” received four Emmy nominations this year, the most of any show in the expanded short form programming categories. “It always just seemed beyond a possibility to me, »

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »

Will ‘Secret Life of Pets’ Make Chris Meledandri a Household Name?

10 July 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Meledandri doesn’t exactly exude power.

Many studio chiefs thrive on the grip and grin of Hollywood events, hogging the attention and drinking in the approbation. When the Illumination Entertainment chief, however, took the stage at the Lincoln Center premiere of “The Secret Life of Pets” last month to introduce the film, he seemed almost apologetic about taking the spotlight. Sporting jeans and a blue blazer, the low-key, even keeled Meledandri looked more like an estate planner settling in for casual Friday than a mogul at an A-list gathering. In look and demeanor, he is far removed from Pixar chief John Lasseter’s Hawaiian shirt-clad, visionary vibe or DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg’s coiled intensity.

But the animated film’s massive $103.2 million launch this weekend solidifies Meledandri among the most successful people in the animation space and reaffirms his status as one of the movie industry’s biggest hit-makers. »

Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton and Tori Kelly star in an animated feature about finding the shining star that lives inside all of us.

Set in a world like ours but entirely inhabited by animals, Sing stars Buster Moon (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey), a dapper Koala who presides over a once-grand theater that has fallen on hard times.  Buster is an eternal optimist—okay, maybe a bit of a scoundrel—who loves his theater above all and will do anything to preserve it.  Now facing the crumbling of his life’s ambition, he has one final chance to restore his fading jewel to its former glory by producing the world’s greatest singing competition.

Watch: Extended 4-Min Trailer for Illumination's Holiday Musical 'Sing'

7 July 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"If I had a voice in Meena's, I'd be a superstar by now!" Universal has released a brand new extended 4-minute trailer for Illumination's latest animated movie titled Sing, a musical about a singing competition hosted by an ambitious Koala named Buster Moon, voiced by Matthew McConaughey. This trailer has much of the same footage from the first trailer, but spends more time introducing the various characters who make it into the competition. Many of them are misfits and the movie seems to play up the idea that some of the best musicians are hidden in society and must be given the chance to express themselves. It could be enjoyable, lots of songs used in it. The cast includes Reese Witherspoon, Seth MacFarlane, Scarlett Johansson, John C. Reilly, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly. Arrives in theaters Christmas week. Here's the new extended 4-minute trailer for Garth Jennings' Sing, direct from »

Toward the end of Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, a new doc about the TV visionary and political activist, Amy Poehler attempts to sum up Lear's impact. "Do you know how fucking hard it is to make people laugh, to tackle big issues and get big ratings?" she tells an audience at an event honoring Lear. "It's so hard that people don't even do it anymore."

The audience claps, and Lear smiles, but the TV game-changer says now that he doesn't quite agree with the assessment. There's hope, »

Steven Soderbergh's Comeback

7 July 2016 5:45 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Steven Soderbergh is retired no more. The director, who had previously announced Side Effects (2013) as his last feature film, is making two movies in the next year or so. It was just announced that he will be directing a feature film about The Panama Papers, the leaked documents which revealed how many of the super-rich employ legal, but dodgy accounting systems to avoid taxation. Even some luminaries in the film world (Emma Watson, Pedro Almodovar and the estate of Stanley Kubrick) were named in that scandal. The film will be based on Secrecy World, a to-be-published book by the Pulitzer prize-winning reporter Jake Bernstein. The adaptation will be written by frequent Soderbergh collaborator Scott Z Burns (Contagion, Side Effects, The Informant!).

Sounds like another Contagion, no? Taking a global incident and examining it from different points of view. Before that he will make Ocean’s Fourteen -- well not exactly, »

17 times movies and TV shows were refused rights to songs

Not every artist is happy to have their song featured in a particular TV show or film. Here are 17 times the rights were refused...

It's not only political campaigns that inspire musical artists to exercise the power of veto on the use of their songs. For reasons of finance, reputation, ego, taste and more, the following TV shows and films weren't able to secure the use of the recordings they originally sought...

This Express piece quotes an Empire Magazine interview with Martin Scorsese’s long-time editor Thelma Schoonmaker in which she relates how the original plan was to have Frank Sinatra’s original recording of My Way play over the end credits of modern gangster classic Goodfellas instead of the Sid Vicious cover that was eventually used.

4 Pieces of Must-Know Casting News

27 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Rev up those engines—Steven Soderbergh wants to take you to the Nascar races. There are no ponies to be had in his next film, “Logan Lucky,” that’s set to begin shooting in Atlanta in August. The cast for the project, put together by Carmen Cuba, is already an oddball mix of familiar faces. Those already attached to the project include Hilary Swank, Adam Driver, Daniel Craig, Channing Tatum, Seth MacFarlane, Katherine Heigl, and Riley Keough. The drama will follow a desolate West Virginia father, who’s down to his last dollar. In an attempt to help his family he teams up with a group of thieves to steal $14 million from a motor speedway. The sparse additional casting will continue as the project moves toward production at the end of summer. The streaming universe is bulking up this week with multiple projects for the big three—Netflix, Hulu, and »

Steven Soderbergh’s Heist Thriller Logan Lucky Casts Jack Quaid

16 June 2016 1:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

After finding some wiggle room in his commitment to HBO’s acclaimed music drama VinylJack Quaid has closed a deal to join Steven Soderbergh’s star-studded Nascar drama Logan Lucky.

Deadline has the scoop, revealing that the up-and-comer now joins an ensemble that features Channing Tatum, Katherine Heigl, Daniel Craig, Hillary Swank, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Alien: Covenant’s Katherine Waterston. That’s a casting call that once made room for Michael Shannon, before a scheduling clash forced the Midnight Special star to bow out of the project in favor of Guillermo del Toro’s as-yet-untitled Cold War romance.

Rooted in North Carolina, Logan Lucky is pitched as a family drama revolving around two daring brothers who stage a heist during the midst of a Nascar race. It’s a feature that has been simmering on the back-burner for some time, particularly when you factor in the ‘will he, won’t he?’ debacle that ensued before Soderbergh eventually decided to return behind the lens for the first time since Side Effects three years ago. Mark Johnson, Gregory Jacobs and Reid Carolin are on board to produce.

With an enviable ensemble in tow, Logan Lucky is expected to enter production in the coming months ahead of a theatrical release at some point next year. Currently, Soderberg is still in search of a distributor. »

“What fresh hell is this?” Fox has officially set calendar slots for their fall TV schedule, including the premiere dates for The Exorcist, Scream Queens Season 2, and Lucifer Season 2.

Inspired by the 1971 novel and the 1973 film that both bear the same name, The Exorcist will make its series premiere on Friday, September 23rd at 9:00pm Est. Scream Queens, meanwhile, will return for its second season on Tuesday, September 20th at 9:00pm Est, and fans of Mr. Morningstar can watch Lucifer Season 2 debut on Monday, September 19th at 9:00pm Est. Below, we have the official press release with full details:

Press Release: Fox has set the fall premiere dates for its new and returning series.

All-new episodes of Gotham and Lucifer return Monday, Sept. 19. On Season Three of Gotham (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt), the origin story continues and the stakes are higher than ever, as Super-Villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City. Season Two of Lucifer (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) promises to be a mother of a season, as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is tasked with finding his family’s matriarch, while continuing to take down criminals alongside Lapd Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Tuesday nights of comedy begin Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the return of Brooklyn Nine-nine, New Girl and Scream Queens. Entering its fourth season, Brooklyn Nine-nine (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt) returns after a season finale cliffhanger in which Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his by-the-book boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), were forced to enter the federal witness protection program. Then, the sixth season of ensemble comedy New Girl (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) continues to follow Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the gang as they attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – from marriage to career advancement – with often hilarious results.

From award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (“The People V. Oj Simpson: American Crime Story,” “American Horror Story,” “Nip/Tuck”), Brad Falchuk (“American Horror Story,” “Glee,” “Nip/Tuck”) and Ian Brennan (“Glee”), Season Two of Scream Queens (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) graduates from the college campus and into a hospital with a haunted past, as a new and terrifyingly funny mystery begins. Returning for Season Two are cast members Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin, 2016 Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis as Cathy Munsch, Lea Michele as Hester Ulrich, Abigail Breslin as Chanel #5, Keke Palmer as Zayday Williams, Billie Lourd as Chanel #3, Glen Powell as Chad Radwell and Niecy Nash as Denise Hemphill. Additional cast members to be announced.

Beginning Sept. 21, Wednesdays are explosive, with the series premiere of Lethal Weapon and the return of Empire. Based on the hit movie franchise of the same name, Lethal Weapon (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) follows iconic cop duo Riggs (Clayne Crawford, “Rectify”) and Murtaugh (Emmy Award nominee Damon Wayans, Sr., “My Wife and Kids,” “In Living Color”), as they work a crime-ridden beat in modern-day Los Angeles. Empire (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), broadcast television’s biggest hit, is a powerful drama about a family at the center of a music dynasty. This season, Empire Entertainment founder Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard) sets his sights on a new streaming service; as his ex-wife, Cookie Lyon (Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson) pursues a new romantic interest; and his sons, Jamal (Jussie Smollett), Hakeem (Bryshere “Yazz” Gray) and Andre (Trai Byers), struggle with fame and ambition.

All-new episodes of Rosewood return, followed by the series premiere of Pitch, beginning Thursday, Sept. 22. Set against the vibrant backdrop of one of the world’s hottest cities – Miami – medical procedural Rosewood (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) enters its second season as top private pathologist Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and tough-as-nails Detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz) solve the Miami Pd’s most challenging cases. Pitch (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) is the dramatic and emotional story of Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury, “Under The Dome”), who becomes the first woman to play Major League Baseball – under the glare of a white-hot media spotlight. From executive producer Dan Fogelman (“Crazy, Stupid, Love.”), the inspiring series also stars Mark-Paul Gosselaar (“Franklin & Bash,” “NYPD Blue”), Ali Larter (“Legends,” “Heroes”), Mark Consuelos (“Kingdom,” “All My Children”) and Dan Lauria (“The Wonder Years”).

Friday nights are terrifyingly entertaining, beginning Sept. 23, with the return of Hell’S Kitchen and the series premiere of The Exorcist. Season 16 of Hell’S Kitchen (8:00-9:00 Pm Et/Pt) welcomes a new batch of ambitious chefs who will brave Chef Gordon Ramsay and his fiery command of the kitchen as he puts them through an intense culinary academy. Then, The Exorcist (9:00-10:00 Pm Et/Pt) returns as a contemporary psychological TV thriller following two very different priests tackling one family’s case of terrifying demonic possession. Directed by Rupert Wyatt (“Rise of the Planet of the Apes”), the series stars Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Geena Davis (“Commander in Chief,” “Thelma & Louise”), Alfonso Herrera (“Sense8,” “The Chosen”) and Ben Daniels (“Flesh and Bone,” “House of Cards”).

Sunday Funday returns beginning Sept. 25, with the season premieres of Emmy Award-winning comedy Bob’S Burgers (7:30-8:00 Pm Et/Pt) and the unprecedented 28th season of The Simpsons (8:00-8:30 Pm Et/Pt), followed by the premiere of hybrid live-action/animated family comedy Son Of Zorn (8:30-9:00 Pm Et/Pt). Featuring the voice of Jason Sudeikis (The Last Man On Earth, “Horrible Bosses,” “We’re the Millers”), Son Of Zorn follows an animated warrior from a faraway island in the Pacific Ocean, who returns to Orange County, CA, to win back his live-action ex-wife (Cheryl Hines, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”) and teenage son (Johnny Pemberton, “21 Jump Street”). Rounding out the night are the 14th season premiere of creator Seth MacFarlane’s Family Guy (9:00-9:30 Pm Et/Pt) and Season Three of the critically acclaimed live-action comedy The Last Man On Earth (9:30-10:00 Pm Et/Pt), created by and starring Emmy Award nominee Will Forte.
