‘The Mindy Project’ Season 4 to Launch Sept. 15; ‘Casual’ Debut Set for October

9 August 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The fourth season of “The Mindy Project” will premiere Sept. 15 on Hulu. The streaming service has also set an Oct. 7 premiere date for the comedy series “Casual,” directed by Jason Reitman.

Hulu announced both launch dates Sunday at the Television Critics’ Assn. press tour at the Beverly Hilton.

“‘Mindy’ was such a huge performer on Hulu before we even considered picking up the original version,” Beatrice Springborn, Hulu’s head of originals, recently told Variety, adding that the new season won’t see any big changes in tone, but star Mindy Kaling was excited about the extended length of each episode.

"Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp" Recap & Review

3 August 2015 9:40 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Comedy is a tricky thing to talk about critically. There are methods to break down jokes or gags into their component parts and explain why each is objectively funny. But unless you are writing a doctoral thesis, there is no faster way to suck all the fun right out of humor. Comedy's power comes from the involuntary nature and immediacy of the response it can elicit. Everything about it is subjective and that's the way it should be. Discussing an entire season of a show all at once is also a difficult task. We've talked about it several times but for something like the broad absurdist comedy of "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp", which essentially plays as a four hour movie, binging might actually be a benefit. Seeds planted in early episodes can be paid off later without losing the intent of the joke resulting in even funnier punchlines. »

Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp review

31 July 2015 12:25 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and roughly a million other stars go back to Camp Firewood in Netflix's latest comedy series...

It’s been a long road back to Camp Firewood.

It seems that ever since the release of the original Wet Hot American Summer movie back in 2001, writers David Wain and Michael Showalter have been teasing the idea of a reunion. However, given that the film featured a cast which included Bradley Cooper, Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd - each only a fraction as famous at the time as they are now - the idea fast became a dangled carrot which seemed to get further and further from anyone’s grasp. It was going to take a Goliath to make it happen.

Enter Netflix, who in January announced (following a long period of speculation) that it would be stumping up the cash to get the band back together. »

New Wet Hot American Summer: First Day Of Camp Trailer Online

2 July 2015 7:08 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

With the show arriving at the end of the month on Netflix, Wet Hot American Summer prequel First Day Of Camp has brought a full trailer online. And – joy! – it’s a thing of comedy beauty.While the movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981, the show, as you might be able to guess, takes place on the first. And despite the idea of the Camp Firewood ensemble largely playing teenagers being part of the joke, they all look pretty darned good. Talking of, pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni, H. Jon Benjamin (who is promoted from voicing a can of veggies in the film to appearing in the series, seen giving out the rules of camp “no dry humping. No necking. No wet humping…”) and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

New Images From The Wet Hot American Summer Prequel

24 May 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It might have been more of a post-cinema release cult hit, but Wet Hot American Summer boasted so much comedy acting talent packed into its cast that it was somehow natural that someone would try to bring it back. That someone was Netflix, which commissioned follow-up series First Day Of Camp, which will arrive on the streaming service in July. The first full batch of images from the show is now online.  The series, according to co-writer/director David Wain, is “a prequel to the original movie. In real life we’re 15 years older but in the show we’re playing two months younger. The movie took place on the last day of camp in the summer of 1981. The show takes place on the first day.”Pretty much the entire original cast – which included Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Elizabeth Banks, Bradley Cooper, Christopher Meloni and Molly Shannon – is back for this one, »

Netflix has released the first images from its Wet Hot American Summer revival series, First Day at Camp, and they are everything fans could hope for. The prequel to the 2001 film again takes place in 1981, which of course only augments the hilarity that the cast (originally in their 30s playing teenagers) are 15 years older now, and playing even (ever so slightly) younger characters. All of the film's original cast will be returning, including Elizabeth Banks, Michael Ian Black, Bradley Cooper, Judah Friedlander,Janeane Garofalo, Joe Lo Truglio, Ken Marino, Christopher Meloni, Marguerite Moreau, Zak Orth, Amy Poehler, David Hyde Pierce, Paul Rudd, Molly Shannon and Michael Showalter. And, as previously reported, other returning actors are H. Jon BenjaminNina HellmanA.D.

10 awesome feminist comedy sketches

27 April 2015 3:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Every time Amy Schumer comes out with a new sketch, it's impossible not to think about how necessary it is that a female standup comic has the platform on Comedy Central to be as irreverent, truthful, and damning as she wants. It wasn't so long ago that females in sketch comedy were reduced to one-note roles. (Check out "Laugh-In" sometime and note how many times the point of a bit is "Oh, Goldie. Such a space cadet.") We picked ten examples of feminism in sketch comedy dating all the way back to the heyday of Carol Burnett. Comb the hair on your Asian-American doll and enjoy. 1. Carol Burnett is "movie star crazy" One of the enduring treats of "The Carol Burnett Show" is the feminist undertones in many of her sketches. The fact that she's so outlandish and having so much fun is a triumph in itself, but in this sketch, »
