Susanne Daniels Throws Out the TV Rulebook to Lead YouTube Red

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When YouTube decided to get serious about developing high-end content for its YouTube Red subscription product, the Internet behemoth turned to a seasoned TV pro.

Susanne Daniels, who joined YouTube as global head of content in July 2015, helped birth such notable series as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Dawson’s Creek” during her tenure in programming at the WB Network. She also logged stints at ABC and Fox and, more recently, Lifetime and MTV.

All of that experience at broadcast and cable networks taught Daniels, one of this year’s Brandon Tartikoff Legacy Award honorees at the Natpe conference in Miami, the rules of the road for developing TV series, even those that were unconventional from the start such as “Buffy.” But most of that rule book has been thrown out now that she’s working in the always-on environment of the world’s most-watched video platform.

TBS Orders Animated Comedy From Louis C.K., Albert Brooks, Greg Daniels

14 January 2017 12:20 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

TBS has ordered 10 episodes of animated comedy series “The Cops” from creators Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks, to premiere in 2018.

C.K. and Brooks will be executive producers on the show, along with Greg Daniels, Dino Stamatopolous, Dave Becky, and Howard Klein.

“The Cops,” which is still a working title, will follow two patrolmen in Los Angeles, voiced by Brooks and C.K. “Al” and “Lou” try their best to protect and serve, but don’t always succeed.

“We have made the bold decision to put Louis C.K., Albert Brooks and Greg Daniels at the forefront of what is going to be a serious push into animated comedy for TBS in 2018,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “I only hope these newbies know what they’re doing.”

The project is a joint production between FX Productions, C.K.’s shingle Pig Newton, and Turner’s Studio T. A »

The Lonely Island: saluting 15 of their finest moments

Gem Wheeler Jan 12, 2017

Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone are comedy trio The Lonely Island. Here are just some of their finest songs and sketches...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was – yep, it’s time to call it - the funniest film of 2016. For those who blinked a little too long and didn’t catch it on its brief appearance in UK cinemas, the DVD release is your chance to find out what you’ve missed: a hilarious parody of current pop music’s excesses that blends acerbic criticism of predatory gossip shows and social media mobs with a sweet story of three feuding rappers struggling to mend their friendship. The fact that this touching tale also features Seal fending off a pack of wolves, Justin Timberlake dressed as a fish, and a bagpiper playing a lament at a beloved pet turtle’s Viking-inspired funeral comes as no surprise »

Jim Carrey proved his acting range in the late 90s and 2000s. We salute the likes of The Truman Show, The Cable Guy and Man On The Moon.

You know you're a fan of something when that fandom is put to the test. Did you stick with Community when Dan Harmon wasn't writing it? During the barren 90s did you cling onto the hope that Doctor Who would return and be fantastic? Those moments when your patience and perseverance are tested are what make the privilege of being a fan important.

Though I have to admit, in recent years, admitting to being a Jim Carrey fan has been more difficult than it used to be. Long gone are the youthful days when hits such as Ace Ventura, »
