'Veep' and other TV shows that outgrew their titles

11 June 2014 1:14 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One thing that makes television so great (and different from film) is the luxury of multiple years and seasons to explore different moments and experiences in a character’s life as they naturally progress. Because of that, TV shows frequently evolve drastically from their tidy season 1 concepts, which can make their original titles a bit confusing.

With some minor spoilers ahead, here are six TV shows that might have benefited from a name change during their runs:

When the HBO comedy premiered back in 2012, Veep was the perfect fit for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Vice President Selina Meyer dealing with a »

Cancelled Comedies Seek a New Home, “Days” Murder Mystery Begins and an Eddie McClintock Double-Feature

12 May 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

News

The TV network upfronts have begun and NBC has released its fall schedule. Katherine Heigl‘s political drama State of Affairs will get that powerful time slot after The Voice while The Biggest Loser bumps what has long been a home to comedy on Thursday nights.

NBC also ordered three new comedies including the gay parenting comedy One Big Happy, which stars Elisha Cuthbert as a lesbian who has a child with her best friend (Nick Zano) when he meets the woman of his dreams. It also ordered Mission Control where Krysten Ritter plays an engineer dealing with sexism in 1960s space race. Mission Control also reunites Jonathan Slavin with his Better Off Ted co-star Malcolm Barrett.

The network also put together a last-minute renewal for Parenthood (They first needed to convince the expensive cast to agree to appear in fewer episodes). Furthermore, NBC announced that this will be »

NBC Cancels "Dracula," Picks Up Three

11 May 2014 10:29 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The final decisions have been made regarding which shows the various networks plan to cancel or renew, and which new ones they intend to pick up.

At NBC the fate of its last two undecideds - "Parenthood" and "Dracula" - have been sealed. "Parenthood" will be getting a sixth and final season which will serve as a proper conclusion. Similarly, the network's long-running comedy "Parks and Recreation" will finish up with a seventh and final season sometime early next year.

Meanwhile "Dracula" has been cancelled. The lavishly produced series scored good reviews for its ambitious reinvention of the story - turning it into something more akin to "The Count of Monte Cristo" meets "The Prestige" but with romanticism and throat ripping.

The series was produced under a lower license fee model and had a passionate fanbase. For its Friday timeslot, ratings were consistent but underwhelming.

Upfronts 2014: NBC tries to build on its first-place finish by leaning on 'The Blacklist'

11 May 2014 9:35 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A very strange thing happened to NBC this year: for the first time in a decade — a period during which it has mostly been a laughingstock — it will finish a season in first place among the adults 18-49 demographic that advertisers care about most. Ordinarily, a network that wins a season can play things conservatively for the next year, but NBC's success isn't entirely replicable. Yes, the network's buoyed by regular, season-long programming like "The Voice" and hit freshman drama "The Blacklist," but a lot of credit for that win comes from "Sunday Night Football," which always goes away in January (leaving the network's ratings on that night a shambles), and some from the Winter Olympics, which won't be back for another four years. So the schedule that NBC announced for next season seems on the one hand a fairly stable one. "The Blacklist," for instance, will stay in a »

NBC reveals fall TV schedule: Thursday comedy shakeup

11 May 2014 9:30 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

NBC’s two-hour Thursday night comedy block will come to an end this fall. The broadcaster is scaling back its comedy investment on TV’s most lucrative night for advertising. Instead, NBC plans to gives its breakout hit The Blacklist the post-Super Bowl spot next year, then shift it to Thursday nights at 9 p.m. in midseason.

All told, seven new dramas and comedies will join NBC’s lineup next season, along with two event miniseries. Stand-out dramas include the return of former Grey’s Anatomy star Katherine Heigl to prime-time in the thriller State of Affairs (which will receive »

Will Ferrell puts 2 comedies on NBC's 2014-15 schedule

9 May 2014 4:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Just keeping busy before its big schedule announcement on Sunday, NBC picked up a trio of comedies on Friday afternoon, including two from executive producer Will Ferrell. The "Anchorman" star and "Anchorman" director Adam McKay's Gary Sanchez Productions is behind "Bad Judge" and "Mission Control," which will be joined by "One Big Happy" on NBC's slate for next season. Sadly, Ferrell has nothing to do with "One Big Happy," but with Ellen DeGeneres executive producing, it doesn't lack for behind-the-scenes starpower. Let's look at the three new NBC comedies and let's try not to resent that they were ordered while "Community" was cancelled... In addition to DeGeneres, "One Big Happy" is executive produced by creator Liz Feldman and pilot director Scott Ellis. The comedy focuses on best friends Lizzy (Elisha Cuthbert) and Luke (Nick Zano). She's a Type-a lesbian! He's a laid-back straight guy! They've decided that they want to have a family together, »

NBC's next 'New Normal: 'One Big Happy'

9 May 2014 2:26 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

The network that tried and failed to tell a very modern parenting story with A New Normal will try yet again with One Big Happy, a new comedy starring Elisha Cuthbert as a lesbian who’s pregnant with her best friend’s baby.

The executive producers on the comedy are Ellen Degeneres, Liz Feldman and Scott Ellis (2 Broke Girls).

Here’s the official logline for the sitcom that’ll premiere as part of NBC’s midseason lineup: Best friends Lizzy (gay and a bit type-a) and Luke (straight and more laid back) are like family. When they were kids and »

Update: NBC Picks Up Comedy Pilots ‘Bad Judge’, ‘Mission Control’ & ‘One Big Happy’

9 May 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Update: NBC has ordered a pair of Gary Sanchez Productions comedy pilots — the Kate Walsh-starring Bad Judge and the Krysten Ritter-starrer Mission Control – and with a third series order is back in the multi-camera game adding One Big Happy for midseason. I hear Mission Control and One Big Happy orders were for six episodes eyed for midseason. I also hear this will wrap the network’s pickups for the day. Related: NBC Pilots: What Is Still Alive? NBC has been high on the gay-straight relationship sitcom One Big Happy produced by Ellen DeGeneres and starring Elisha Cuthbert and Nick Zano, though there had been questions whether the single-camera-heavy NBC would be open to dabble back into multi-camera sitcoms. (Besides One Big Happy, NBC brass also liked the Jerrod Carmichael multi-camera presentation, though it has not been picked up) Written by Liz FeldmanOne Big Happy from Warner Bros »

'Happy Endings' alum Elisha Cuthbert joins 'One Big Happy' from Ellen DeGeneres

20 February 2014 3:45 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Elisha Cuthbert is staying "Happy" ... although it's not the "Happy" fans want.

The "Happy Endings" alum just joined Ellen DeGeneres' gay-themed pilot "One Big Happy," Deadline reports. She will play the female lead in the NBC comedy pilot opposite Nick Zano

"One Big Happy" is about two platonic friends since childhood -- a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano). They live together and try to have a baby via artificial insemination, and they finally get pregnant ... just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life. Oops?

At least "Happy Endings" fans will get to see Cuthbert in another sitcom with "Happy" in the title, right? »

We were thrilled when Nick Zano was cast as the male lead on NBC’s One Big Happy, and there’s more cause for celebration as his Happy Endings co-star Elisha Cuthbert has snagged the female lead. The show “centers on two platonic friends since childhood — a lesbian, Lizzy (Cuthbert), and her straight male best friend, Luke (Zano) — who have been living together and trying to have a baby via artificial insemination for some time. They finally get pregnant — just as Luke meets and impulsively marries the love of his life.”
