‘Han Solo’ Directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord Reveal Departure Reason: ‘Our Approach Was Really Different’
It’s never easy to get let go from a project, but in their first public appearance since exiting what’s now been titled “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” Phil Lord and Chris Miller handled it gracefully.

“The experience of shooting the movie was wonderful,” Lord said to the crowd at Vulture Festival Sunday. “In terms of us leaving the project, everyone went in with really good intentions and our approach was really different from theirs… The gap was too big.”

Added Lord, “Sometimes people break up and it’s sad. We learned a lot from our collaborators, we’re really proud of our work and wish everyone with the best.”

Talking TV comedy with 'Undateable' producer Bill Lawrence
Every few years at press tour, I find myself sitting down with Bill Lawrence — creator, co-creator and/or showrunner of “Spin City,” “Scrubs,” “Cougar Town,” “Ground Floor” and NBC’s “Undateable,” which returns for a second season Tuesday night at 9:30 — to talk about the state of TV comedy. As a guy who broke into the business during the ‘90s sitcom boom (his early jobs were on “Boy Meets World” and “Friends”), who’s worked extensively on both traditional multi-cam sitcoms and filmed single-cam comedies, and has now worked for both broadcast and cable (with “Cougar Town,” which concludes its run at the end of this month, he’s done both), he can take a global view of the genre in a way many of his contemporaries can’t, and he remains one of the champion talkers among showrunners of comedy or drama. Back in January, we talked about letting

Cougar Town: Season Six Ratings

TBS has already announced that season six will be the final round for Cougar Town so fans don't have to worry about it being cancelled this time. The ratings fell quite a bit last season. Will they rise in the final year -- so the TBS execs regret not ordering a seventh season -- or will the ratings drop even lower? We'll have to wait and see.

Cougar Town continues to follow Jules Cobb (Courteney Cox) and her wine-loving friends and family in Gulfhaven, Florida. The rest of the cast includes Christa Miller, Busy Philipps, Dan Byrd, Josh Hopkins, and Ian Gomez. Brian Van Holt departed at the start of the season.

Looking back at Clone High

Mark looks back at Phil Lord and Chris Miller's ahead-of-its-time animated MTV series, Clone High...

Feature

Previously, on a very special episode of Clone High...

“Way, way back in the 1980s, secret government employees dug up famous guys and ladies and made amusing genetic copies. Now the clones are sexy teens and they're gonna make it if they try.”

So goes the theme tune to Clone High, the MTV animated series that ran for one season from 2002 to 2003. As a concept for a TV series goes, there's a hell of a lot of mileage in doing a teen drama featuring the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Gandhi, Joan of Arc, John F Kennedy and Cleopatra in school together.

The series was animated in the style of Genndy Tartakovsky’s hand-drawn animated series, such as Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, with stylised character design and slightly more limited movement, making
