'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Season 11 Smackdown: The Parody of 'The Slopes' vs. Satire in 'The Suburbs'

4 February 2016 6:00 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

So far, this season of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" has exemplified much of what the series does best. It kicked off with a sequel to one of its most popular episodes, reminding fans of how creator Rob McElhenney and fellow writers/producers Glenn Howerton and Charlie Day often reward long-term viewers for their devotion. In the same vein, Season 11 also included a redo, of sorts, when Frank got hit on the head and started reliving the episode when he first joined the gang — a meta-callback to redundancies implemented a few times prior. Paddy's gang also tried to scam some folks in last week's episode, "Dee Made a Smut Film," which is another popular trope of these hard-drinking dreamers.  Read More: Watch: 'Archer' Season 7 Teaser is The Greatest Event in Television History But it's the two other episodes of this young season that best epitomize what "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" does best. »

Tracy Morgan Teams with Jordan Peele on FX Comedy Pilot

16 January 2016 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tracy Morgan’s plan to star in an FX comedy series is back on track now that writer-actor Jordan Peele and John Carcieri have signed on to write a pilot for the former “30 Rock” star.

Morgan’s life was up-ended 18 months ago by a car crash that came two months after he signed a straight-to-series pact with FX Networks.

The new project will see Morgan playing a career criminal who struggles to reintegrate into society after serving a 15-year prison sentence.

Peele and Carcieri will write the pilot and exec produce with Eric Tannenbaum and Joel Zadak, an alum of Peele’s Comedy Central sketch series “Key and Peele.”

“What an unbeatable combination – Tracy Morgan and Jordan Peele – two exceptional comics joining forces with a great team of writers and producers to create and produce this pilot for FX Networks,” said Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Prods. »

Read: Watch: 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' Season 11 Trailers Introduce Charlie, the Paint-Drinking Lawyer The delinquents from Paddy's Pub are at it again, reveling in the garish excess of the '80s in this promotional clip for the new season. The decade of their childhood and adolescence is revisited with love and affection by the South Philly natives, complete with an over-enthusiastic narrator, a greedy ski resort owner and bikini-clad blonde bimbos. With noticeable nods to "Porky's," "Better Off Dead," and "Hot Dog...The Movie," "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" is keen on keeping themselves fresh by parodying the films and TV shows that the creators grew up loving.  The fun doesn't seem like it will stop anytime soon, as series creator Rob McElhenney (who plays Mac on the show) has acknowledged the fact that he would likely keep the show going, noting that "the audiences is still there. »
