Steve Carell reveals his 'Anchorman' Brick Tamland inspiration

19 December 2013 2:30 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Unfortunately your browser does not support IFrames.

For the character of Ron Burgundy, Will Ferrell based his character on Mort Crim. For Brian Fantana, Paul Rudd went full Geraldo Rivera. But where did Steve Carell find the inspiration for his lovable "Anchorman" doofus Brick Tamland?

While promoting "Anchorman: The Legend Continues" on "Good Morning America," Carell reveals who the people are that he used as his muses for Brick. Surprisingly enough, they're his blood relatives.

"For the first one, I really thought about my kids -- not that they are brain-drained -- but that they are very innocent and naïve," he says of his children: Elisabeth Anne, who was three at the time, and John, who was only a month old. "I thought, well that's kind of cute and funny. Yeah, he just stands there and looks like an idiot."

Now that his children are 12 and 9, respectively, they likely won't »

Steve Carell Co-Wrote and Will Direct Cop Comedy Pilot for TBS

6 November 2013 12:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Steve Carell is returning to TV, albeit behind the camera. TBS announced today that Carell will direct the pilot for Tribeca, a police procedural satire he co-wrote with his wife Nancy Carell. Despite the name, the show is actually set in Los Angeles. The title refers to its lead Angie Tribeca, a detective in the Rhcu (Really Heinous Crimes Unit). It's kind of like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, if the detectives didn't have to wear jackets when they went outside — you know, because, like eighties comedians pointed out, L.A. is historically warmer than New York. »

Steve Carell writing and directing TBS comedy pilot 'Tribeca'

6 November 2013 11:50 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Steve Carell will soon be returning to the small screen. After saying goodbye to "The Office" in 2011, he is now developing a new comedy at TBS.

The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Carell and his wife Nancy Carell are writing and executive producing a new pilot called "Tribeca." The single-camera comedy is described as a "satirical look at a police procedural."

"The single-camera comedy explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served ... sort of," THR writes. "These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive."

Carell is planning to direct the pilot, though it's unclear if he'll star in the show as well. The central character is named Angie Tribeca, who is a 10-year veteran of the Really Heinous Crimes Unit (Rhcu) of the Lapd. Are you intrigued by this new project? »

TBS Orders Police Procedural Spoof Pilot From Steve Carell

6 November 2013 11:04 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Thom Hinkle is relying on his own development for his first pickup as head of scripted development at TBS. The network has greenlighted half-hour pilot Tribeca, written and executive produced by Steve Carell and Nancy Carell and to be directed by Steve Carell, whose company Carousel Television is producing. Hinlke ran Carousel and developed and sold Tribeca to TBS before joining the network as VP Comedy last month. Described as the brainchild of Steve and his wife, actress Nancy Carell, Tribeca is a satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the Lapd’S elite Rhcu (Really Heinous Crimes Unit). This single-camera comedy explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served…sort of. These dedicated men and women are more than counter-intuitive; they are non-intuitive. »

"They know I'm not a cool guy," the 50-year-old actor told Access Hollywood at the junket for his new movie, "Despicable Me 2" in Los Angeles, when asked if voicing the lead in the blockbuster animated movie has made him "cooler" with his kids.

Steve, who has two children with wife Nancy Walls, said that as his kids get older, they are easily embarrassed by his antics, and he thinks parents fall into traps when they try too hard ...

The Office Series Finale Recap: 'Best. Prank. Ever.' – Do You Agree? [Updated]

16 May 2013 7:14 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: This recap contains major spoilers from Thursday’s series finale of The Office. Read on at your own risk!

Though it was long in coming, The Office‘s emotional final episode went by too quickly and was, at times, hard to handle (that’s what she said).

The 75-minute episode capped nine seasons with laugh-out-loud moments and tender tributes — a job almost as tough as medalling in Flonkerton or fulfilling the duties of Assistant (to the) Regional Manager.

The episode contained too many great jokes, throwaway »

Frank Darabont's 'Lost Angels' sets 2013 premiere on TNT; Diablo Cody reality show in development at TBS

15 May 2013 12:25 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The Turner networks' upfront presentation to advertisers in New York City didn't have much in the way of news, but did reveal TNT plans to finally premiere Frank Darabont's "Lost Angels" (starring Jon Bernthal of "The Walking Dead" and formerly known as "L.A. Noir") in late 2013 and TBS is developing a reality show starring Oscar-winning "Juno" writer Diablo Cody.

TNT already made most of its notable programming decisions -- renewing "Dallas" and "Boston's Finest," cancelling "Southland" and "Monday Mornings" and ordering "The Last Ship" and "Legends" -- ahead of the upfronts.

But both TNT and TBS unveiled a laundry list of shows in development that may or may not ever see the light of day as pilots, let alone series.

Among those titles at TNT:

- "Portal House" executive produced by Steven Spielberg, about a group of young scientists who "stumble upon a portal into the time-space continuum"
