“Jurassic World”: Ten Movies to see in June

29 May 2015 1:49 PM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Ahoy! As always, I like to take a look at the month in advance to see what cinematic offerings are coming our way. This time out, it’s the June releases that I’m going to be prepping you for, and as an added bonus, I’ve seen a fair number of them already. In fact, if you include one that I’m seeing this coming Monday, there are only two or three that I’ve yet to lay eyes on at this point. That hopefully lends a little bit of extra credence to my picks, though clearly your mileage may ultimately vary. Regardless, June is shaping up to be a very solid month for film, so you’ll undoubtedly have multiple things to see starting next week. Take a look below and obviously stay tuned fore more on many of them… Here now are the ten best bets for »

I’m not that stupid.”

Starz Sets Premiere Date for Patrick Stewart’s ‘Blunt Talk’

13 May 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Get ready for some “Blunt Talk.”

The half-hour comedy series from executive producer Seth MacFarlane — and starring Patrick Stewart — will debut on Saturday, August 22, at 9pm Et/Pt.

The 10-episode first season tells the tale of Walter Blunt, a cable newsman and U.K. transplant on a mission to teach Americans how to think, act and behave. But his wild off-air antics suggest a highly unorthodox teaching style.

Jonathan Ames, who created the series, serves as showrunner, writer and executive producer, along with Tristram Shapeero (“Community”) and Stephanie Davis (“Bored to Death”). The show hails from Mrc.

The series also stars Jacki Weaver (“Silver Linings Playbook”) as Blunt’s producer-manager; Adrian Scarborough (“The King’s Speech”) as his manservant; Dolly Wells (“Doll & Em”) as his senior producer; and Timm Sharp (“Enlightened”) as his head writer.
