The George Lucas Family Foundation has established the Robin Williams Endowed Chair in Comedy at the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

“Robin was a comedy genius with a boundless talent,” Lucas said. “He was singular in every way, yet had great respect for the genre and for the dedication it took to succeed. His talent was only matched by his work ethic. That’s why he made it to the pinnacle of comedy success, and why his legacy will be to motivate and inspire young storytellers.”

Williams won a best supporting actor Academy Award for “Good Will Hunting,” along with two Emmys and seven Golden Globes. He died in 2014 at the age of 63.

‘Dear White People’ Review: How Biting Satire and a Sincere Love Story Make Season 1 Essential TV — Spoilers

28 April 2017 1:20 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “Dear White People” Season 1. Please watch the 10 episodes, now available on Netflix, before continuing — or read the spoiler-free review.]

Romance is an all-encompassing experience. Once you’re in it, there’s nothing else out there. It’s just the two of you against the world, as they say. But generally, you’re not against anything: life, and everything in it, is improved. When you’re in love, the day-to-day is all sunshine and rainbows, leaving little time for concern, let alone cause.

This kind of overwhelming emotional state is why there’s a whole genre dedicated to romance, and why it can be hard for shows to establish a truly great relationship without letting it overwhelm everything else in the series. Viewers relate to the concept of a happy ending with a happy couple, and such an instinctual reaction can prove daunting if the will-they-won’t-they drama plays out as it does in many relationships: indefinitely.

Here’s… the first trailer for Seeso’s new Johnny Carson show!

Feast your eyes on the colors of the 1970’s, also known as “the decade that taste forgot”: The putrid chartreuse of a shag carpet, blinding mustard swivel chairs, busy cutouts on a wood paneled desk. Set to the hum of a snappy tune evoking earlier days, this trailer drums up enough excitement without actually showing anyone’s face — though the talent on board boasts Seeso’s biggest names to date.

7 April 2017 1:13 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Once upon a time, Helen Hunt’s romantic advances were rejected by former pop star and soap opera actor Rick Springfield. During an appearance on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Thursday, the former “Mad About You” star, who rose to fame as a teen actress, appearing opposite Sarah Jessica Parker on the ’80s movie “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” revealed that not even she could get Springfield’s attention. “He wouldn’t date me but I was madly in love with Rick Springfield,” Hunt told host Andy Cohen when asked if she had any celebrity crushes as a teenager. »

Rick Springfield may have wished he had Jessie’s girl, but Helen Hunt wished she had him!

TV Review: ‘Brockmire,’ Starring Hank Azaria

31 March 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hank Azaria has spent his career playing some kind or another of comic relief — whether that is his well-known voice acting work on “The Simpsons” or his live-action arcs on shows like “Mad About You” and “Friends.” He has the remarkable ability to mold his voice to any number of situations and characters, some less culturally sensitive than others; it makes him a kind of chameleon of a comic actor, one where his own voice is sometimes hard to hear underneath all the impressions.

Which is why it is so fitting — and unexpectedly affecting — that Azaria plays a plaid-blazer wearing baseball announcer named Jim Brockmire, whose biggest claim to fame is an on-air meltdown he had in 2007,

hours after discovering his wife in a compromising position. The show begins after 10 years of exile abroad, when he returns stateside only to discover that his greatest disgrace has become one of the first viral memes. (His »

Santa Clarita Diet season 2 confirmed by Netflix

29 March 2017 9:17 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Joseph Baxter Mar 30, 2017

Santa Clarita Diet season 2 is a go at Netflix with a confirmed renewal of the horror-comedy series.

Netflix won't be falling off the wagon with Santa Clarita Diet. The horror-comedy series, unveiled earlier this year with a series of conceptual promos, may have arrived as a bizarre and random genre amalgam of irreverent comedies with the ubiquitous trope of zombies, but it has apparently managed to make enough of a quantifiable impression with streaming audiences to justify the greenlighting of a second helping.

Andrea Wong to Exit as Sony Pictures International TV Production Chief

3 February 2017 2:04 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Andrea Wong is leaving her post at Sony Pictures TV’s head of international TV production.

Wong has served in the London-based role since the fall of 2011. She was also president of international for the larger Sony Pictures Entertainment division. The specifics of her departure, first reported by Deadline, are unclear.

Sony’s international TV production activity grew on Wong’s watch through acquisitions and entrepreneurial efforts including the sale in China of a Mandarin-language remake of the 1990s sitcom “Mad About You.” Wong’s unit has recently made a mark with the success of Netflix’s “The Crown.” The series hails from Sony’s Left Bank Pictures, an investment that Wong championed in 2012.

Wong relocated to London for the Sony post after spending three years as head of Lifetime. Before Lifetime, she had a 14-year run at ABC. During her time as ABC’s head of alternative programming Wong developed two franchises that remain pillars of »

Sundance Review: ‘Landline’ Has Enormous Heart and Authentic Characters

22 January 2017 11:55 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Although it was marketed as an “abortion romantic comedy,” Obvious Child went beyond that basic moniker, using the set-up to mine humor from the fears and anxieties tied with such a personal decision. Writer-director Gillian Robespierre and star Jenny Slate have now reteamed in Landline, a 1995-set drama about the dysfunctional lives of one family in Manhattan. Refreshingly scraggly in its structure and plotting, with an enormous heart and affecting honesty permeating every scene, it marks an impressive step up for the duo.

The Jacobs are a mess. The oldest sister Dana (Slate) is having second thoughts about marrying her good-natured fiance Ben (Jay Duplass), while her young sibling Ali (Abby Quinn), still in high school, sneaks off to party and experiment with drugs and sex. Things aren’t faring much better on the parental side, with their father Alan (John Turturro) feeling undermined by his wife Pat (Edie Falco »

‘Landline’ Review: ‘Obvious Child’ Duo Reunites For A Bigger, Better, Messier Comedy That’s Totally Off The Hook

20 January 2017 8:31 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Sex happens in the shower, love happens in the bath. Among its other virtues, Gillian Robespierre’s “Landline” is the rare movie that appreciates the difference between the pleasure of standing in the water and the satisfaction of soaking in it — the difference between trying someone on for size and swishing around in their dirt until your skin prunes and the water runs cold. Almost everything that a second feature should be, the film is bigger, richer, shaggier, and more satisfying than Robespierre’s “Obvious Child,” though obviously a product of the same irreverent imagination. It’s that most elusive of indie dramedies: An honestly told story about the messiness of human relationships.

Set in the fall of 1995, a magical time when people kept all of their secrets on floppy discs and Donald Trump was still just a punchline, “Landline” unfolds like a less caustic version of “The Squid and the Whale, »

Sundance Film Review: ‘Landline’

20 January 2017 6:36 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When a director crafts a youth comedy that’s also a pop-culture period piece, like “Everybody Wants Some!!” or “Twentieth Century Women,” it’s important for the audience to feel they know why — to know what it is about that moment that ignited the filmmaker’s imagination, beyond his or her desire to sprinkle a movie with the mix-tape nuggets, hipster TV choices, and hairstyles of their youth. “Landline,” the pleasingly spiky and confident second feature directed and co-written by Gillian Robespierre (“Obvious Child”), is set in Manhattan in the long-ago, far-away, now-exotic year of 1995, and it’s fun to hook into the movie’s remember-this? vibe — the references to slam poetry and Lorena Bobbitt and eyebrow rings and Must-See TV, to renting “Curly Sue” at Blockbuster (and actually thinking it’s funny), to Hillary Clinton as a fashion role model, to second-hand CD stores with world-music listening stations.

‘Feud: Bette and Joan’ Will ‘Lean Into the Pain’ of Aging Actresses in Hollywood

12 January 2017 2:17 PM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Feud: Bette and Joan” may focus on two of Hollywood’s most glamorous stars, but it also highlights the struggle that actresses have trying to find work as they age into an industry that favors the young.

At the Television Critics Association panel for the series on Thursday, creator Ryan Murphy acknowledged that despite the campier aspects of the feud between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford and their collaboration on “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?,”  the series would also focus on the more emotional aspects of the women’s lives.
