The first original comedy series to launch on CBS’ streaming service, “No Activity” is set against the world of a major drug cartel bust. It follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met.
The cast of the first season included series co-developer Patrick Brammall along with Tim Meadows, with guest stars Mark Berry, Arturo Castro, Mackenzie Davis, Bridget Everett, Will Ferrell, Darren Gilshenan, Travis Guba, Jake Johnson, Sunita Mani, Jason Mantzoukas, Adrian Martinez, Jesse Plemons, Fred Pohl, Alex Rodriguez, Amy Sedaris, J.K. Simmons, Courtenay Taylor, Michaela Watkins, and Daniel Zolghadri.
A nonsensical much-ado-about-nothing tenor is established immediately as Clara (Paula Niedert Elliott) and Ted (Chris Elliott) drive along a lonely country road at night. She’s frantically looking for something that turns out to be no more than a shoe she thinks fell out of the car earlier — but she views this as crisis

“BoJack” producer Tornante Co. was among the first production companies to work with Netflix on original programming. “BoJack” premiered in 2014, when Netflix was still ramping up its originals strategy and wasn’t as focused on locking up global rights in all-encompassing deals that essentially buy out the syndication window that is so crucial to profitability for producers.
Tornante, headed by Michael Eisner, clearly had the foresight to retain the off-network rights in “BoJack” for a domestic syndication sale. The offbeat comedy about a washed-up sitcom horse (voiced by Will Arnett) from the 1990s dropped its fourth season on Sept. 8. The series has racked up 48 episodes to date and has already been renewed for Season 5.
“I’m very proud of ‘BoJack Horseman.’ Who knew a
The Real Housewives ringleader made his debut as the new co-host of CNN’s annual New Year’s Eve bash. He succeeded Kathy Griffin, who anchored the broadcast alongside Cooper for 10 years before her contract was terminated in May for reasons well documented.
The countdown to 2018 kicked off a full four hours before the annual ball drop — but it only took 18 minutes for a CNN correspondent to drop trou. (Yes, really!) Cohen and Cooper

As more and more programming floods the airwaves, competition is rising. Seasons don’t have as many episodes. Shows don’t run for as many years. Greetings are savored because goodbyes are often just around the corner — or, at least, they feel like it.
So it should come as no surprise that time plays an integral role in the best television series of 2017. From the exciting new friends found in “American Vandal,” “Dear White People,” and “The Handmaid’s Tale,” to the beloved vanishing faces in “Halt and Catch Fire,
In a new clip from “At Home with Amy Sedaris,” Theroux joins the best man at his wedding as an astronaut who just doesn’t “find astronaut relationship jokes that amusing… after what I’ve been going through.”

We’ll leave it to Theroux to tell you more about Commander Colonel Gary Commander’s unique problem, but be warned, for your own safety: There are puns.
Yes, it’s quite an epic journey on Sedaris’ homemaking and entertaining truTV series, which has brought her quirky tidbits to life, with Jane Krakowski, Neil Patrick Harris, Rachel Dratch and Stephen Colbert all passing through for firsthand demonstrations.
In Et’s exclusive first look at Tuesday’s all-new episode, Justin Theroux makes an unexpected appearance as an ill-tempered astronaut, who doesn’t seem to care for his host’s space jokes.
Of course, fans of Sedaris know that she and Theroux are longtime friends -- she stood as best man during his and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding -- so it’s no surprise to see him on At Home. And his appearance

It seems like just yesterday the first season of Stan’s original Seinfeldian cop series No Activity tore down the freeway, with the actors Patrick Brammall and Darren Gilshenan in the front seats as dunderhead cops on a stakeout.
And by “tore down” I of course mean “parked in a stationary car”. And by “freeway” I mean “cargo wharf at night where nothing ever happens”.
In other words, nothing happens. There’s literally no activity (barring the final moments of the first two episodes), and the entire comedy relies on banter between various partners to carry the show.
Improbably, it works. Buoyed by strong comedic performances from likable personalities, both new and familiar, and the sharp dialogue courtesy of series creator Trent O’Donnell and star Patrick Brammall, “No Activity” is a low-key pleasure. It goes down easy,

The Sex and the City star is known for turning heads with her keen sense of style, but her latest fashion statement had fans doing a double take because she wore it twice on the red carpet in less than 10 days.
Parker was first spotted in her long-sleeved, oh-so-fall, leopard-print dress when she posed with her friend, Amy Sedaris, at a screening and party for truTV.s new comedy series, At Home With Amy Sedaris at The Bowery Hotel on Oct. 19 in New York City.

Sarah Jessica Parker was spotted wearing the same leopard print dress at two separate events all during a span of under two weeks, which made us pose the question: What would Carrie Bradshaw say about recycled fashion?
The actress, 52, was first pictured in the look that featured lilac lace paneling on Oct. 19 when she attended the premiere screening and party for her truTV new comedy series At Home with Amy Sedaris held at The Bowery Hotel in New York City. Parker accessorized that night’s ensemble with a blue crossbody bag and bright yellow stilettos.
No Activity celebrates the mundane in what should be a high stakes sting operation. Set against the world of a major drug cartel bust, the series follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican
