Newswire: Katie Aselton to star in horror-comedy that’s “a softcore version of Pleasantville”

5 June 2017 9:01 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

The League and Legion’s Katie Aselton is among those set to star in a movie described as a “basically like a softcore version of Pleasantville,” according to Variety. To clarify: This is a wacky-sounding, high concept project called Deep Murder, about denizens of the porn world who start to develop beyond their stereotypes once a serial killer is in their midst. So essentially, the murderer takes on Reese Witherspoon and Tobey Maguire’s job in the aforementioned Gary Ross picture. In addition to Aselton, the film is also set to feature reliable character actor Christopher McDonald; Johnny Simmons of Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World; Stephanie Drake, otherwise known as Mad Men secretary Meredith; and two of its own writers, Josh Margolin and Quinn Beswick.

Margolin and Beswick are responsible for the screenplay, along with Nikolai Von Keller and Benjamin Smolen, while Nick Corirossi, who has worked for Funny Or »

Christopher McDonald, Katie Aselton Duplass, Johnny Simmons Star in Horror Comedy ‘Deep Murder’ (Exclusive)

5 June 2017 6:12 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Christopher McDonald, Katie Aselton Duplass, Johnny Simmons and Stephanie Drake will star in “Deep Murder,” Variety has learned.

The horror comedy is set inside the world of soft core pornography. It follows a group of adult film stars and filmmakers who start getting picked off by a killer. According to the logline the characters originally come off as sex-obsessed archetypes but begin to evolve from cliches into real people as they are forced to figure out how to survive.

McDonald is best known for playing Shooter McGavin in “Happy Gilmore.” He’s had a string of memorable character roles in such films as “Thelma & Louise” as Geena Davis’ caddish husband and most recently appeared on HBO’s “Ballers.” Aselton Duplass wrote and starred in “The Freebie” and appeared in FX’s “The League.” She most recently appeared in the comic book drama “Legion,” another FX series that scored strong reviews in its inaugural season. »

Girlboss Review: Britt Robertson Shines in Netflix Series

14 April 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Movies may not have found the strength of women in motion pictures yet, but television has realized their full potential.

Everywhere you look lately, there is another television show proving talented women can easily carry a series on their firm shoulders, and Girlboss is no different.

Girlboss is a series loosely (don't lose the word loosely) inspired by a book about a woman, written by a woman, starring women, and at least half produced and directed by women. And it's awesome.

I haven't read the book on which it's based, but as the opening credits will tell you, it's a very loose adaptation of New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal. In fact, it's more of an inspiration than an adaptation.

The series itself was created by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect 1& 2, 30 Rock), who also serves as showrunner and wrote 9 of the 13 episodes. »

Girlboss (Nsfw) Trailer: Welcome to Adulthood Mother F&$@*%$

3 April 2017 1:30 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Girlboss is inspired by the New York Times best-selling book #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, founder of the fashion brand Nasty Gal.

The series centers on Sophia (Britt Robertson), who began selling vintage clothes on eBay and, by the age of 28, had built the multi-million dollar fashion empire, Nasty Gal.

The trailer is as nasty as a girl can be, with swearing from Sophia and pretty much everyone around her.

It looks like it will be a lot of fun getting to know this young lady ah, nasty gal.

And lest you think your time to create a fortune on Ebay has passed, with so many people moving toward everyday processed goods for the ease of their markets on the Bay, there are fortunes to be had in all kinds of exciting places on Ebay.

Maybe you'll be the next Girlboss or Boyboss if you just give it a try!

‘Girlboss’ Trailer: A Nasty Gal Learns That Online Retail Can Be a Bitch in New Netflix Series

3 April 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The world of online retail can be a bitch, but it takes one to know one. In Netflix’s new series “Girlboss,” one young woman is going to find out what it takes to go into e-commerce for herself.

Inspired by the best-selling book “#Girlboss” by Sophia Amoruso, the series tells her story of starting out by dipping her toes in the eBay pond by clothes-flipping her vintage finds at local thrift stores. The first scene in the trailer below riffs off of a real-life event in which Amoruso bought a vintage Chanel jacket for $8 and sold it for $1,000.

It’s not clear how much the series will follow Amoruso’s entrepreneurial trajectory, but there’s plenty to mine from her experiences. After some highs and lows, Amoruso launched her own fashion brand, Nasty Gal, which became a popular and fast-growing retailer. »
