R-Rated Comedy Rock That Body Cast Expands

17 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Previously titled Move That Body, the upcoming R-rated comedy Rock That Body, starring Scarlett Johansson, has now expanded its cast list ahead of an August production start. Zoe Kravitz had already joined Johansson on the project, and the two actresses will now appear alongside Kate McKinnon (Saturday Night Live), Jillian Bell (Workaholics) and Ilana Glazer (Broad City).

Details on the plot of the film are few and far between, beyond the simplest of plot outlines: five friends rent a Miami beach house for a bachelorette party and accidentally kill a male stripper. The only man currently listed in the cast is co-writer Paul W. Downs, so it could well be that he will be the one performing for the women, with fatal consequences. Downs wrote the script with Lucia Aniello, who will also direct – and the two are known for their collaboration on Broad City.

While the concept seems straightforward, »

Time Traveling Bong: Doctor Who for the 4/20 generation

21 April 2016 10:04 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

What would it be like if time travelers got high? Broad City’s Ilana Glazer and Paul Downs turn an absurd premise into an incisive history lesson on oppression

One of the (many) benefits of being a successful artist is the accrual of cultural capital and collective goodwill. Someone with a hit has the opportunity to make a passion project or God forbid, a solo album. Sometimes that passion leads to a miniseries about stoners exploring civilization’s history of oppression using a highly technologically advanced implement for smoking marijuana.

In this case, the hit that paved the way for Time Traveling Bong is Broad City, the wildly successful comedy about two young women navigating New York while smoking copious quantities of bud. Time Traveling Bong comes from three of the primary creative talents behind the show: star and co-creator Ilana Glazer, Paul Downs, a Broad City writer who also plays Trey, »

Time Traveling Bong Review

20 April 2016 8:33 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

All three nights of the miniseries were made available ahead of broadcast.

Time Traveling Bong is so fucking stupid,” Ilana Glazer has said recently of Comedy Central’s new sci-fi stoner miniseries. “But I think it is so good and I love it so much that I’m like ‘it’s smart.'” Leave it to the Broad City co-creator, co-star, and co-writer to encapsulate her new series (created along with star Paul W. Downs and writer/director Lucia Aniello) with all of the low-brow intelligence and brevity that its patently quirky title suggests.

The show – which will unfold over three nights beginning, you guessed it, on 4/20 – is as equally slovenly as that title: the jokes are hit-and-miss, the plot is scatter-brained, and the short three-episode run doesn’t exactly help build a comedic duo as instantly engaging as that of Broad City. Still, in spite of its idiocy and see-what-sticks mentality, »

'Time Traveling Bong': Welcome to Stoner Comedy, 'Broad City' Style

20 April 2016 7:54 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

The time machine has taken many forms over the centuries: Dr. Who, Bill and Ted all ventured through the fourth dimension in a phone booth; Doc Brown used a Delorean; Homer Simpson a toaster; and an illegal Russian energy drink was all it took to send a certain hot tub hopping through the spacetime continuum. When Broad City stars Ilana Glazer and Paul W. Downs, and writer/director Lucia Aniello, decided to put a stoner spin on the genre, they centered their time travel pipe dream around the only logical choice: A bong. »

Ilana Glazer: 'Time Traveling Bong' Is Comedy Central's 'The People v. O.J. Simpson'

19 April 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

"Weed is magical." So said Ilana Glazer said at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of "Time Traveling Bong." The three-part Comedy Central miniseries takes that statement literally: Two cousins, Sharee (Glazer) and Jeff (Paul W. Downs) find a mysterious bong that allows them to travel to different time periods whenever they smoke up. It’s a bulletproof premise, and Glazer says it was born out of a (stoned) conversation about "old New York, before the sewer system was invented and it was so fucking disgusting" and how terrible it would be to go back to that time period. "Imagine if you were stoned and experiencing that," Downs added. "It would be so intense. It would be horrible.” From there, they made a one-off video and, as they kept hanging out together, they kept having more and more time travel ideas. According to director Lucia Aniello, eventually "it got to a point where we were like, »

Ilana Glazer, Paul W. Downs, and Lucia Aniello — the smoke-filled brains behind Comedy Central hit Broad City and the network’s 4/20-premiering miniseries Time Traveling Bong [Note: Comedy Central and MTV News are both owned by Viacom.] — have long trafficked in the surreal and the stoned.

‘Time Traveling Bong’ at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival

18 April 2016 9:18 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Broad City is the voice of a new generation: one where kids turn to adults, drunken hijinks are the new norm, mimosas and bloody marys are never too early to drink, and of course, traveling around a city that’s huge and rather stereotypical in its ways. This is what a millennial calls normal, and the creators behind Broad City has brought us a new future, present, and past, to see what it would be like when the 21st century mixes with time.

And that’s why Broad City director Lucia Aniello, along with writing and romantic partner, Broad City co-star Paul W. Downs, and star Ilana Glazer, came together to make Time Traveling Bong. Originally written in 2004 for a College Humor video, Glazer brought up the idea with Aniello and Downs (who made Paulilu Productions together). Given the title of the mini-series, it would make perfect sense for its »

Ilana Glazer, ‘Time Traveling Bong’ Stars Talk Stoner Humor, Rejected Plots for Comedy Central Series

16 April 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ilana Glazer, Paul W. Downs and Lucia Aniello blazed through a Q&A on Saturday following the premiere of their subversive time-travel limited series “Time Traveling Bong.” The conversation was held at the SVA Theater in Manhattan as part of the Tribeca Film Festival.

In the three-part series, directed by Aniello, Glazer and Downs play cousins who whirl through history after discovering the titular time traveling bong. “Bong” premieres on April 20 (of course) and will air over three consecutive nights.

Glazer, co-star and exec producer of Comedy Central’s “Broad City,” joked that the team is inspired by a certain recent FX hit. “Have you guys been watching O.J.?” Glazer asked, referring to “The People v. O.J. Simpson.” “We think of this as Comedy Central’s O.J.”

The discussion revealed that Comedy Central shot down a storyline involving a young Bill and Hillary Clinton. »
