Jeri Ryan Joins “Helix,” Lifetime Plans the End of “Drop Dead Diva” and Dwayne Johnson Goes to HBO

News

Once Upon a Time has cast a Glinda for its Wizard of Oz story arc. TVLine reports that Sunny Mabrey has been picked to play the Good Witch.

Lifetime has announced that Drop Dead Diva will end with the upcoming sixth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. I just hope another show quickly steps in to fill the upcoming Brooke Elliott shortage on TV.

Dave Holmes sings the praises of Brit soap Coronation Street, though a lot of his praise highlights the ways UK soaps trump their U.S. counterparts.

EW reports that Jeffrey Dean Morgan is set to appear on Shameless as Fiona‘s new boss. Judging from Morgan’s roles on Weeds, Supernatural and Watchmen, I’m already starting a deathwatch for his character.

Seth Meyers promises that Stefon will eventually appear on Late Night, saying that Bill Hader wants to bring his Saturday Night Live character to Meyer’s show eventually. »

5 Scenes From 'Broad City' to Show You Why You Should Be Watching Comedy Central's New Series

13 February 2014 11:16 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

On its surface, Comedy Central's "Broad City" isn't an easy sell. Created by comedians Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, two Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre alums who managed to turn their web series into a television one, "Broad City" is mainly about being young and broke and not giving a damn, which is general and not unexplored territory. The show has the occasional guest star -- Fred Armisen, Rachel Dratch and Janeane Garofalo have all turned up in the four episodes that have aired so far -- and it has the approval of Amy Poehler, who's the executive producer, but the focus is primarily on newcomers Glazer and Jacobson as exaggerated versions of themselves, with Hannibal Buress as Ilana's dentist fuckbuddy Lincoln and John Gemberling as Bevers, Abbi's roommate's freeloading boyfriend. And "Broad City" is very, very funny, in a joyfully slovenly way -- it manages to capture the feeling »

TV Review: Comedy Central’s ‘Broad City’

20 January 2014 7:02 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Like a lot of Web-to-tv transplants, “Broad City” feels a trifle narrow, and occasionally labors to find enough material to fill even a half-hour. At its core, though, this Comedy Central series has an endearing pair in cash-strapped twentysomething pals, Abbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, struggling to survive in New York. The demo, gender and location will likely invite comparisons to “Girls,” but with a zanier tone and less angst-ridden self-indulgence, these girls are clearly all about the comedy – a spritz of fresh air on a network where most offerings have the pungent aroma of a men’s locker room.

Counting Amy Poehler among its producers and featuring cameos by the likes of Fred Armisen and Janeane Garofalo, “Broad City” surrounds its relatively unknown Upright Citizens Brigade alums with some veteran players but derives most of its charm from its struggling heroines and some of the miscreants that populate their world. »
