Awkward's Beau Mirchoff Previews His Favorite Scene as a Director — Plus: Will Matty and Jenna Ever Get 'Closure'?

26 April 2016 8:11 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

From the moment Beau Mirchoff (aka “Matty F–ing McKibben!”) sat in the director’s chair for Tuesday’s episode of Awkward (MTV, 10/9c), the first-timer knew he had his work cut out for him.

After all, following last week’s intense final scene — if you’re really quiet at night, you can still hear Jenna wailing, “I’m f–ing sorry!” — this Mirchoff-directed episode could make or break the Saga of Jenna and Matty.

‘Three’s Company’ Movie in the Works at New Line

20 April 2016 9:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New Line is in talks to pick up the movie rights to the sitcom “Three’s Company,” and has hired the writing team of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein.

Robert Cort, whose credits include “Runaway Bride,” is attached to produce.

ABC’s “Three’s Company” aired from 1977 to 1984 and starred John Ritter, Joyce DeWitt and Suzanne Somers as roommates who pretended that Ritter’s character was gay in order to placate their hard-nosed landlord, played by Norman Fell. Somers left the series in the fifth season and was replaced by Jenilee Harrison and later by Priscilla Barnes.

The show was based on the British sitcom “Man About the House.” New Line is planning to set the movie in the 1970s.

Kohn and Silverstein have collaborated with New Line on “Valentine’s Day” and “How to Be Single.” They also wrote the script for the love story “The Vow,” starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams. »

DVD Review – The Secret of My Success (1987)

4 April 2016 12:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Secret of My Success, 1987.

Directed by Herbert Ross.

Starring Michael J. Fox, Helen Slater, Richard Jordan, Margaret Whitton, John Pankow, Fred Gwynne.

Synopsis:

A college kid from Kansas moves to New York and blags his way to the top of a multinational corporation, falling in love along the way.

For a few years during the mid-to-late 1980s you couldn’t really get away from Michael J. Fox as the fresh-faced young actor seemed to be everywhere, appearing in several successful movies alongside his regular TV role in sitcom Family Ties. But in between his breakout movie role in Back to the Future and critical acclaim in more serious material like the Vietnam drama Casualties of War there was The Secret of My Success, a comedy that doesn’t always get the same recognition as Fox’s other hits but is probably worth another look if it has been a while. »
