Josh Widdicombe webchat – your questions answered on politics, fans, and the best of Blur

6 December 2016 6:09 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The standup comedian and Last Leg host fielded your questions on niche 90s football references, ribbing Devon for a living and how much of a posh boy he is exactly

2.09pm GMT

That’s it folks … thank you all for your questions.

2.08pm GMT

Thank you so much for all of your questions. I can honestly say that's the most fun I've ever had in the Guardian building. My DVD, What Do I Do Now? is out now, and will make an ideal Christmas present/drinks coaster.

2.07pm GMT

royleslie asks:

Which do you prefer – writing your own stand-up routines or writing for your sitcom?

I find writing is the most fun I have in comedy. I think writing for the sitcom more fun, because I get to do it with someone else - my co-writer Tom Craine. However, writing a sitcom is far more time-consuming and far more difficult than I think anyone realises. »

AMC Orders ‘Loaded’ to Series, Partners With Channel 4 for Tech Dramedy

26 October 2016 7:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

AMC is teaming with Channel 4 for comedy-drama hybrid “Loaded.” The series, a co-production between AMC, Channel 4, Hillbilly TV and Keshet UK, will star Mary McCormack, Jim Howick, Samuel Anderson, Jonny Sweet and Nick Helm.

“Loaded” is based on the Israeli sitcom “Mesudarim,” produced by Keshet International. Channel 4 had initially commissioned the series in January, with AMC now signing on for U.S. distribution. The first season of “Loaded” will be eight episodes, set to premiere in 2017 on Channel 4 and AMC.

The original series is based on the premise of four friends who find themselves almost unfathomably wealthy after selling their gaming start-up to an American company. “Loaded” will take a similar tack, with a British twist: Tech entrepreneurs Josh (Howick), Leon (Anderson), Watto (Helm) and Ewan (Sweet) have just sold their company, Idyl Hands, for a metric tonne of sterling. That money brings out everyone’s best and worst sides, with »

The world of 70s snooker becomes an iPlayer exclusive while Nick Helm’s Bafta nominated short resurfaces

The picaresque world of 70s and 80s snooker was so obviously ripe for retrofitted TV drama that the only surprise is that this feature-length tragicomedy is an iPlayer-only affair. Luke Treadaway (pictured, right) and Will Merrick enjoy themselves as broad, even scurrilous, caricatures of Alex Higgins and Steve Davis, respectively. Higgins is cast as snooker’s darkly irresistible demon who self-destructs even as Davis, in cahoots with ruthless promoter Barry Hearn, is taking the game into every living room. This narrative thrust is a slight over-simplification but does make for high drama.

"Bridge of Spies," "Carol" Lead BAFTA Nominations! Where's "Mad Max?" What About "Star Wars?"

9 January 2016 10:59 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

Leave it to the Brits! The BAFTA nominations were announced and they gave us a slightly different look at the awards season! For instance, Tom McCarthy's "Spotlight," the leading Oscar contender in the U.S. just received 3 noms including Best Film, Supporting Actor for Mark Ruffalo and Original Screenplay. No Director nomination for McCarthy.

Meanwhile, Steven Spielberg's "Bridge of Spies," a handsomely-produced period piece led the pack along with Todd Haynes' "Carol," another handsomely-produced period piece. Both films garnered nine nominations each including Best Picture. "Bridge of Spies" and "Carol" will duke it out with "Spotlight," Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu's "The Revenant" (eight nominations), and Adam McKay's "The Big Short" (five nominations) for the Best Picture trophy.

So where's "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" you ask? They're relegated to the technical categories. Apparently, sequels, no matter how great they are, can't compete with originals. »
