This week in TV news: The Academy hands down rulings on hourlong comedies

21 March 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Following a ruling last month that the Television Academy would only consider half hour shows eligible for the comedy category at the Emmys, a panel of nine analysts have now begun handing down the rulings for exemptions in the selection process. The panel, which was set up to determine the category assignment of hour-long shows that appealed their placement in drama, has now ruled, as per Variety, that the Fox show Glee, the Showtime series Shameless, and the CW series Jane The Virgin can compete as comedies at the upcoming primetime Emmys. The decision will apply to all categories, from Acting to Directing, and so on.

One show that notably wasn’t granted a waiver, however, is the Netflix serial Orange Is The New Black. The series, which revolves around the inhabitants of a women’s prison, was categorised as a comedy at last year’s Primetime Emmys, where it picked up three wins. »

17 March 2015 1:58 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Judd Apatow has an impressive number of big hits on his resume, both as a director and as a producer, but one thing that he has never really specialized in is sequels. There is Anchorman 2, and semi-spinoffs like This Is 40 and Get Him To The Greek, but for the most part the movies he.s made have been largely one-and-done. If it were up to him, however, that wouldn.t be the case, as he has evidently spent a good amount of time trying to fight for a Superbad 2 With his new movie Trainwreck screening as a work in progress cut at SXSW this past weekend, I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down for a one-on-one with Apatow while in Austin, Texas yesterday, and it was during our chat that he revealed his long interest in bringing back Jonah Hill.s Seth, Michael Cera.s Evan, and »
