The Simpsons (1989– )

Since you, as we do, probably wonder when This Is Us, The Good Doctor, Big Bang Theory, 9-1-1, The Flash and other favorite broadcast shows will resume their seasons, I did that chart/list/grid thing that I do.
Herewith are the return dates for any broadcast-tv seasons that were in progress when the Olympics torch got lit , as well as a curated smattering of season and series premieres. This is by no
This week sees the release of Father Figures, which stars a fresh-from-Zoolander 2 Owen Wilson and Ed Helms, himself recently recovered from The Hangover films. The film, a light-hearted tale of a pair of twins searching for their real father, marks the directorial debut of veteran cinematographer Lawrence Sher and has a fine supporting cast including Katt Williams, J. K. Simmons, Glenn Close, Ving Rhames, Harry Shearer and Christopher Walken.
Recently we had the chance to sit down with three stars of the new film, and Danielle DeLaite talked to Wilson and Helms about why their characters were so much fun to play, and how it was working with Christopher Walken and Terry Bradshaw. They also talk about their own parents growing up, and how this influenced their choices in the film. Owen Wilson also gives his reaction to seeing the lightsaber video where his voice
It’s a reminder to broadcast and cable networks alike that even if they cultivate A-plus talent, those superstar producers will eventually head to greener streamer pastures.
At the same time, it’s no longer a surprise. Murphy, after all, follows Shonda Rhimes, the “Grey’s Anatomy” executive producer whose Shondaland brand was too valuable to remain inside a traditional company. Rhimes signed a rich deal last fall to join Netflix after 15 years at Disney/ABC.
And it’s also another aggressive play by Netflix to secure, in Rhimes and Murphy, two producers whom might have otherwise been producing new hit shows for
Sivero sued in 2014 and claimed that the Simpsons character of Louie misappropriated his likeness. Sivero alleged in his complaint that just as The Simpsons was getting off the ground in the late 1980s, he was living in an apartment complex in Sherman Oaks,...
"No rest for the wicked here as James spent a few of his days between tour dates in front of the camera once again for Academy-award nominated director @joeberlingerfilms as he filmed scenes for Joe's upcoming film Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, and Vile. The movie follows the relationship between notorious serial killer Ted Bundy, played by Zac Efron, and his longtime girlfriend, played by Lily Collins, who at the time, had no knowledge of the crimes."

In the Alcon Entertainment comedy “Father Figures,” Owen Wilson (“The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wedding Crashers”) and Ed Helms (“The Hangover” films, “We’re the Millers”) star as fraternal twins Kyle and Peter who accidentally discover they’ve been living with a lie all their lives. The kindly man in the photo on their mantle isn’t their father after all, but an invention their mother (Glenn Close) concocted to conceal the truth: that she actually doesn’t know who their real father is. See, it was the seventies, and things were crazy, and…well, you know. Armed with only a handful of clues, the brothers resolve to find the mystery man in what results in a wild road
As the country’s highest profile women’s rights attorney, Allred understands that the court of public opinion can sometimes find justice that even the nation’s top courts cannot, and so, she has learned to generate media attention, organize press conferences, and even stage demonstrations for the benefit of cameras. That tactic has earned her many enemies over the years (one clip in Roberta Grossman and Sophie Sartain’s “Seeing Allred” shows Jimmy Kimmel saying she “seems to be in league with the devil,” without explaining why), but it also makes her uniquely suited to a documentary — one that can bring a megaphone to her causes, while offering a more intimate, personal side of her story.
Available exclusively on Netflix three weeks after its splashy Sundance debut, “Seeing Allred” differs profoundly from nearly every other time Americans
Lil Kev is the story of a 12-year-old, pint-sized, optimistic, highly imaginative kid who navigates growing up in the crime filled inner-city of North Philly with the help and sometimes hindrance of his strong, quick-tempered mother, drug addicted father, pessimistic older brother, ex-con uncle and wise-ass talking dog.
Hart will be providing the voice of the main character and he will be joined by Wanda Sykes, Keith Robertson, Gerald “Slink” Johnson and Deon Cole.
The project is one of many animated projects being developed at Fox. It's being written by Michael Price (The Simpsons) and Matt Claybrooks (Everybody Hates Chris), so we know
Amid talk of Lucasfilm’s far-away galaxy, though, CEO Bob Iger addressed the company’s proposed merger with 20th Century Fox, and why he still feels “enthusiastic” about the landmark deal, one which will eventually see the X-Men join forces with Marvel’s cinematic heroes, despite interest from Comcast.
Before we discuss the quarter and other developments across the company, a quick update about our recently announced acquisition. The regulatory process has begun in numerous jurisdictions across the world. And I spent the last several weeks meeting with a number of business leaders at Fox, gaining insight that will be invaluable when
A live-action movie based on the animated series Kim Possible is in the works, TVLine has learned. Casting for all roles — including the title character, a high school student who juggles cheerleading and crimefighting — is currently underway.
Original series creators Mark McCorkle and Robert Schooley are penning the script, along with Josh Cagan (The Duff). McCorkle, Schooley and Zanne Devine (I, Tonya) will executive-produce.
Kim Possible ran on Disney Channel for 87 episodes from 2002 to 2007, additionally spawning two
Remember that old episode of The Simpsons in which Homer enters a magical portal and is transported into the real world? The more I watch the comedian Sam Simmons, the more I come to think perhaps this episode was inspired by actual events – that the 40-year-old performer was a former Springfield resident who snuck through the portal undetected.
No comic in Australian history has looked so much like a cartoon character. Despite no shortage of dick jokes in his standup routines, Simmons is a “waist-up comedian”: his face is so animated he doesn’t need the rest of his body. He is, then, a perfect choice for ABC TV’s six-part comedy series, Squinters, in which he plays a flustered George Costanza-like everyman caught behind the wheel during the daily rush-hour commute.
The actor/comedian will star in and executive-produce an animated Fox sitcom based on his childhood, according to our sister site Deadline. Fox has ordered a pilot presentation for Lil Kev, which follows a highly imaginative 12-year-old boy as he navigates the streets of North Philadelphia with the help of “his strong, quick-tempered mother, drug-addicted father, pessimistic older brother, ex-con uncle and wise-ass talking dog.”
Along with Hart, Lil Kev will feature the voices of Wanda Sykes (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Deon Cole (black-ish), Gerald “Slink” Johnson (Black Jesus) and stand-up comic Keith Robinson.
I’m not saying “Life Of The Party” might want to send some royalty cheques to “The Simpsons,” but the concept is identical, with Melissa McCarthy playing a grown woman who heads back to school.
