ITV Studios Global Entertainment has now sold the rebooted show to Npo Netherlands, ITV Choice Africa, Yes in Israel, MTV Oy Finland, Ruv Iceland, TV4 Sweden and Nrk Norway. The deals were closed by the company’s newly reorganized Emea regional sales team.

Gravitas Ventures has bought rights to the stand-up comedy documentary “Dying Laughing,” which includes Jerry Seinfeld, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Jamie Foxx and the late Garry Shandling.

Gravitas made the deal with filmmakers Paul Toogood and Lloyd Stanton with plans to release the movie in theaters and on demand in the first quarter of next year.

Billy Connolly, Steve Coogan, Cedric The Entertainer, Mike Epps, Eddie Izzard, Jerry Lewis, Chris Rock, Sarah Silverman and  Keenen Ivory Wayans are also featured in “Dying Laughing,” which premiered at this year’s Los Angeles Film Festival.

“Over two years, as the film began to emerge from the thousands of miles traveled and hundreds of hours or interviews, we learned about the physical and emotional dedication that it takes to become a stand-up comedian, and that the prospect of failure haunts even the most experienced and celebrated practitioners,” said Toogood and Stanton. “We hope »

Grimsby review: : “Gloriously grotesque though throughly entertaining.”

24 February 2016 8:09 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Grimsby review: It’s Carry-On Spying with Sacha Baron Cohen in this grotesquely funny original comedy that will have you both wincing and weeping with laughter.

Grimsby review by Paul Heath, February, 2016. Sacha Baron Cohen returns to the screen in this offensively funny Grimsby, a film that targets the British working classes, football hooliganism, international espionage and Daniel Radcliffe.

Louis Letterier‘s film, co-written by Sacha Baron Cohen, along with Peter Baynham and Phil Johnson, focusses on Grimsby native Nobby (Baron Cohen), a father of eleven who pines for his long-lost brother Sebastian (Mark Strong), who has been missing from Nobby’s life for 28 years. Sebastian, as we learn over the gloriously shot first person Pov opening credits, is now a top British spy tasked with averting a global terrorist attack. When Nobby learns that Sebastian is going to be present at a top political event in London, his mates »

The Cold Feet reunion warms up – will the 90s hit work in 2016?

20 January 2016 7:46 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Robert Bathurst, Fay Ripley, John Thomson, Hermione Norris and James Nesbitt have been seen together on the set of ITV’s revival – but will the show survive without Helen Baxendale?

From six thirtysomethings to five fiftysomethings, Cold Feet is well and truly back. ITV has released the first image of the reunited cast, posing cheerfully at a read-through of the script ahead of filming. It has been 13 years. How do they look? Weirdly, almost exactly the same but with marginally better hair. This does not necessarily bode well for a show as firmly rooted in the 1990s as a floppy disk. As we all know, great telly from that particular decade, characterised as it was by successful, sharp-suited horny people hooking up in glass-fronted soulless bars, does not update easily. About as easily as a floppy disk, you might say. We all remember, or rather are still trying to forget, »
