Watch: 7 Episodes From Short Lived 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High' Spinoff TV Series 'Fast Times'

2 December 2015 12:05 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Film-to-television show adaptations have been popular across genres for quite some time. Most recently, there’s been the success (and undue cancellation!) of “Hannibal” and the eerie A&E drama “Bates Motel.” Noah Hawley’s brilliant reimagining of “Fargo” for FX is perhaps the most prominent example of the practice and has already been renewed for a third season. Of course, there are certain television shows that spun-off popular films but didn’t pan out (looking at you, Jennifer Aniston in the short-lived tv version of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), and we’ve found one in the lost episodes of “Fast Times,” a small-screen version of Amy Heckerling’s cult classic “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Read More: The 20 Greatest Musical Moments In The Films Of Cameron Crowe Famously penned by Cameron Crowe and which provided his entry into filmmaking, the script for the film was based on his »

The Films That Should Be TV Shows

4 October 2015 3:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This week, Neil Calloway suggests some films that would work well as TV shows…

With the new series of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. now underway, the Limitless TV show having just debuted in the Us, and talk of a Game of Thrones movie being made (later denied). There’s even a TV show (the second, following a short-lived 1990 show) of the John Hughes/John Candy classic Uncle Buck coming soon. Add in the Minority Report TV show, and the just announced Lethal Weapon series and we have truly entered the age of the TV and film crossover.

The line between TV and film is growing smaller. The “small screen” is no longer seen as a step down from the cinema, largely because our TVs are no longer small, and people are watching what awful people call “content” in the same way – streaming it to their TV, laptop or tablet.

‘Smosh: The Movie’: The Biggest Test Yet for Crossover Appeal of Digital Stars

22 July 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Meet Ian Hecox and Anthony Padilla — accidental international comedy superstars.

Ten years ago, the Internet-famous duo behind Smosh were teens hanging out in the Sacramento suburbs making funny videos and song parodies just for the hell of it, and sharing them with friends on this new site called YouTube.

Today, Smosh is a multimillion-dollar enterprise, counting more than 30 million subscribers across its six YouTube channels, and encompassing merchandise, comics and game apps. The guys are on the vanguard of a trend Hollywood is eyeing closely: They’re starring in “Smosh: The Movie,” a slapstick-y caper in which Hecox and Padilla teleport into different YouTubers’ channels in a quest to delete an embarrassing video of Anthony. The comedy is set for digital release July 24, after a red-carpet premiere in Los Angeles and fan screening in Anaheim, Calif., timed for the annual VidCon online-video confab.

Happy birthday, Jennifer Aniston!

The actress celebrates her 46th birthday Wednesday, so we're taking a trip back to 1990 when Et first sat down with then-21 year old star, who had just landed a supporting role as Jeannie in the short-lived TV adaptation of Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

“You had one day, and now you're just going to see the continuation of what this kid is all about and all the other things he gets himself mixed up in and it should be fun,” Aniston told Et of the role.

Realizing the role was a farcical one, she decided to just have fun with it.

“That's what makes it fun because you can go just a little bit overboard, make it really crazy,” said Aniston, “Makes it more fun for me!”

The show was cancelled after just one season -- but as you’re probably well aware »
