"Rules aren't for everyone." CBS Films has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life, an adaptation of the bestselling book series of the same name. Young actor Griffin Gluck stars as Rafe Katchadorian, a boy with a "wild imagination" bored of middle school who decides to break every rule and see what happens, bringing along his friends with him. The full cast includes Lauren Graham, Rob Riggle, Thomas Barbusca, Andy Daly and Adam Pally, and Efren Ramirez. This looks like it might be entertaining, I like the hand-drawn text they use throughout the trailer. Have fun.

Luke Owen sifts through the rumours…
We’re only a few days away from Paul Feig’s reboot of Ghostbusters arriving in cinemas, and there has certainly been a lot said about it already. From its first trailer confusing the message, to people rejecting the idea of a female Slimer, Ghostbusters is going to have to try really hard to win round the haters. But while certain members of the cast and the film’s director are positive, it might not be all sunshine at Sony.
Since it went into production last year, there have been a lot of rumours about a troubled production on sites like 4Chan and Reddit from those claiming to be either involved or close to the film. I decided to go through each one, and add in my own two cents into what could have happened behind the scenes.

If there were an award for most independent film acting and directing talent to appear in the same trailer, it would likely go to “Joshy,” the 2016 Sundance comedy starring Thomas Middleditch and Jenny Slate.
Directed by Jeff Baena (“Life After Beth”), the film also stars indie directing darlings Joe Swanberg and Alex Ross Perry alongside Aubrey Plaza, Nick Kroll, Jake Johnson, Alison Brie, and Adam Pally. The movie made news in March when Lionsgate and Hulu teamed up on a theatrical and streaming rights acquisition deal. Here’s the film’s synopsis:
After his fiancée breaks off their engagement, a man takes a trip with friends on what should have been his bachelor party weekend, and his self-absorbed friends are so focused on their own issues that they fail to ask him how he’s doing.

We’re sort of due for a new generation of big-screen comedy stars. It’s been a decade or so since the Seth Rogens of the world broke out thanks to “Knocked Up,” and recent hits in that genre have mostly relied either on stars of that vintage or earlier (see Will Ferrell and co), or actors […]

After Silicon Valley had one of its best seasons yet, you may be looking for some more Thomas Middleditch this summer — and you are in luck. He leads Joshy, which finds him recovering after his fiancée (Alison Brie) commits suicide on his birthday. Four months later, he can’t get the deposit back on the house in Ojai, California he rented for his bachelor party, so he decides to make the best of it and invite his closest friends to spend a weekend together.
Featuring the stacked ensemble of Adam Pally, Nick Kroll, Jenny Slate, Brett Gelman, Alex Ross Perry, Joe Swanberg, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Lauren Graham, and Jake Johnson, the first trailer has landed today. Coming from Jeff Baena, it does a strong job of selling the mix of comedy and drama.

Television is hooked on time travel. At this spring’s TV upfronts, every major network except CBS announced that it will air a show that involves time travel during the 2016-17 television season.

ABC will air “Time After Time,” the television adaptation of a book that speculates over what would have happened had H.G. Wells — who is widely credited for popularizing the idea of time travel with his 1895 novel “The Time Machine” — actually had the ability to travel through time. And The CW has “Frequency,” an adaptation of the 2000 thriller about a father and son communicating across time with this use of a ham radio, »

In a television landscape full of nostalgia grabs and reboots, “Happy Endings” is one show that has yet to find its second life. The David Caspe-created sitcom about six friends living in Chicago fostered a small but passionate audience, and was cancelled in 2013 after three seasons on ABC.
During a reunion panel at the Vulture Festival on Sunday, Caspe said that he has received offers bring the show back, but joked that none of them have been seriously considered (“six episodes, shot on an iPhone”).
Still, the creator seemed open to the possibility of a revival in the future. “I think that if someone would actually let us do it the real way, that everyone [in the cast] would want to do it.”

Everything old is new again on Fox. Now that the network no longer has "American Idol," it's looking to new dramas and comedies to fill that ratings void.

And to capture the magic that "Empire" brought to Fox, the network has ordered another Lee Daniels' series in "Star."
Here are the trailers for Fox's new shows:
"24: Legacy," with Corey Hawkins as a new agent seeking to save the world from terrorists:
"A.P.B", with Justin Kirk as a tech billionaire who buys himself a police precinct:

Produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (“Lego Movie,” “21 Jump Street”), and written by Julius “Goldy” Sharpe (“The Grinder,” Family Guy), the new comedy Making History follows three friends from two different centuries as they try to balance the thrill of time travel with the mundane concerns of their present-day lives. Two shows in one, it’s both a rollicking historical adventure, and a contemporary comedy about love, friendship and trying to fit in to an increasingly complex and impersonal world. Dan Chambers (Adam Pally, “The Mindy Project,” “Happy Endings”), a computer science professor at a small Massachusetts college, recently discovered time travel and has been transporting himself back to the 1700s to spend time with the colonial woman he’s fallen for. »
