Comedy series “2 Broke Girls” has been canceled after six seasons at CBS, Variety has learned.
The series starred Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs as waitresses at a Brooklyn diner who one day dream of opening their own business. The only thing standing in their way is the fact they are dead broke.

Keep up with the always-hopping film festival world with our weekly Film Festival Roundup column. Check out last week’s Roundup right here.
– The Human Rights Watch Film Festival will be presented June 9 – 18, with 21 topical and provocative feature documentaries and panel discussions that showcase courageous resilience in challenging times. In an era of global advances by far-right forces into the political mainstream, assaults on the free press, and the rise of “citizen journalism,” festival organizers hope that the films in this year’s program can serve as inspiration and motivation for the audience, from seasoned activists to those searching for a role in local and global movements.
Now in its 28th edition, the Human Rights Watch Film Festival is co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and IFC Center. All screenings will be followed by in-depth discussions with filmmakers, film subjects, Human Rights Watch researchers, and special guests. »

"I will let you guys know when/if there is to be a reboot of Roseanne," she tweeted, adding, "Of course I want to do a reboot of Roseanne-new political reality in our country will make for some great jokes!"
A source confirmed to Et on Friday that a revival of the hit '90s sitcom was still in early discussions, but should the deal close, Roseanne's on-screen husband, John Goodman, would be a part of it. Also reportedly returning for the reboot is Sara Gilbert, Laurie Metcalf and other original cast members.
According to Deadline, the eight-episode revival will be executive produced by the »
Time for another cinematic trek to the land of “second chance” romance, where those wounded lovers get another try at happiness in a picture-perfect little town complete with a cozy home (fireplace included, of course) and an adorable moppet. But this journey to a happy ending can’t be a smooth one. The fly in the ointment (or the more crass “t%#d in the punch bowl) is the more than a little unhinged ex. Then the trip goes from hearts and flowers to demented nannies and boiled bunny rabbits. Perhaps as a way to mark the 30th anniversary of Fatal Attraction, movie-goers are now treated to a “female-centric” take on torture and turmoil mixed with thwarted desire and homicide in Unforgettable.

A Roseanne revival is in the works!
The '90s comedy is getting an eight-episode reboot starring Roseanne Barr, John Goodman and Sara Gilbert, according to Deadline. Laurie Metcalf and other original cast members have also reportedly signed on.

Whitney Cummings — co-creator of 2 Broke Girls — proved her dedication to comedy when she submerged herself up to her neck in water for the cover of her new book, which she revealed today.
“Oh dear. Today is the day I get to reveal the cover of this book,” wrote Cummings on her Instagram on Tuesday. “And yes I almost drowned shooting this.”

Get ready to read Whitney Cummings. The comedian just revealed the cover of her debut book, a memoir called I'm Fine...And Other Lies. The cover shows a smiling Cummings in a water tank with her head just above water. According to her publishing house, the funny lady's tome will detail her "struggles with codependence, love addiction, workaholism, eating disorders and vagina steaming." "I always told myself I would wait to write a book until I had accumulated enough humiliating mistakes to actually make the read worth your time," Cummings told People when the book deal was announced last May. "I've dated a gay guy, had my hair fall out from not eating enough fat, put »
The ultimate uptight blond turns psychotic ex-wife in a silly thriller that tries – and heroically fails – to be the new Fatal Attraction
Poor Katherine Heigl has been typecast as the uptight blond (think the unfortunate trifecta of Knocked Up, 27 Dresses and The Ugly Truth). Here, she at least has fun with that typecasting as tightly wound and sleekly coiffed troublemaker Tessa. A Bay Area psycho Barbie, Tessa is determined to make life difficult for her beer-brewing, rent-a-hunk, ex-husband’s (Geoff Stults) new girlfriend, Julia (a heroic Rosario Dawson, playing it as straight as the hammy script will allow). Enjoyable, too, is the inversion of the black best friend trope, with Julia’s supportive, zany bestie played by Whitney Cummings of 2 Broke Girls.

There are few surprises in “Unforgettable,” the first feature film from longtime producer Denise Di Novi. In hair color, clothing and personality type, the two female leads of this custody-battle-turned-murder-mystery are diametrically opposed at every turn, hurtling toward a final showdown that will probably not end in hugs and an exchange of floral arrangements. But there’s something about the way that Di Novi and writer Christina Hodson never stray from this dynamic that gives the movie a strange heightened, camp-adjacent appeal.
“Unforgettable” treats this central struggle over the heart of a family in the same way that a recent Ken Watanabe character does, by surveying the battlefield and coming to a simple, definitive conclusion: “Let them fight.”
The setup for this feud is as simple as its execution. New SoCal transplant Julia Banks (Rosario Dawson) is fresh off a move from a publishing gig in New York to be »

The actress revealed that she was “still swollen” from freezing her eggs when she recorded her audition on tape.
“I was on bed rest because I had had this thing called hyperstimulation, so I should’ve been in bed,” she tells People in this week’s issue. “I was in so much pain, on painkillers. But when a doctor tells me like, ‘Take it easy for a couple days’ — that, in my head, »

Judd Apatow likes nothing more than topping his own joke.
The filmmaker is putting together a sequel to his best-selling Sick in the Head, which featured conversations with Mel Brooks, Jerry Seinfeld and other comedians. The new book will be called Sicker in the Head and will feature interviews with Norman Lear, Kevin Hart and Whitney Cummings.

As expected, Universal's The Fate of the Furious debuted in grand fashion last weekend, setting a new box office record for a global opening weekend of $531.9 million, although its $98.7 million domestic debut was far from any sort of record. Over the past few years, the Fast & Furious franchise has established its dominance in the month of April, typically posting huge debuts and repeating atop the box office charts for several weeks in a row, before the summer movie season officially gets under way. The Fate of the Furious is expected to follow that pattern, repeating atop the box office with $49.2 million, easily beating out five new films arriving in nationwide release.
Box Office Mojo reports that, of the five new releases, most will debut in less than half the theaters that Fast & Furious 8 debuted in last weekend (4,310). Warner Bros.' Unforgettable will have the widest release of the bunch with roughly 2,350 theaters, »

Katherine Heigl (“27 Dresses,” “Knocked Up”), Rosario Dawson (the “Sin City” films) and Geoff Stults (TV’s “The Odd Couple”), star in the film. “Unforgettable” marks a reunion for Heigl and Di Novi, who previously collaborated on “Life as We Know It.”
Heigl stars as Tessa Connover, who is barely coping with the end of her marriage when her ex-husband, David (Stults), becomes happily engaged to Julia Banks (Dawson)—not only bringing Julia into the home they once shared but also into the life of their daughter, Lilly (Isabella Rice). Trying to settle into her new role as a wife and a stepmother, Julia believes she has finally met the man of her dreams, the man who can help her put »

"She's messing with me." Ugh. Another trailer for this movie. Warner Bros has released a second trailer for the romantic thriller titled Unforgettable, about a vengeful woman who sets out to make life hell for her ex-husband's new wife. The man-in-the-middle is played by Geoff Stults, and the two women are played by Katherine Heigl with some impressive blonde hair, and Rosario Dawson. The film is also a reunion for Heigl and director Denise Di Novi, as they previously collaborated on Life as We Know It. The cast includes young actress Isabella Rice, Simon Kassianides, Whitney Cummings, Robert Wisdom and Cheryl Ladd. This is an ironic title, because this movie seems instantly forgettable, and I'm certain it's going to be sitting in the Bargain Bin in a few months. This looks terrible, even with these two women leading the cast. Here's the second trailer (+ new poster) for Denise Di Novi's Unforgettable, »
