Watch the Unaired 'Clerks' TV Pilot Based on Kevin Smith's Movie

5 August 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

You may know that director Kevin Smith's first film Clerks spawned the Clerks animated TV series in 2000, although it only ran for one season. What you may not know is that, five years earlier, the indie hit was actually adapted for a live action TV pilot, starring Jim Breuer as Randall Graves and Andrew Lowery as Dante Hicks. The pilot was never picked up as a TV series, and now you can see why, since the full Clerks pilot has now surfaced online.

The pilot also features a few more faces you may recognize. Keri Russell, three years before starring on Felicity, plays Sandra, a tanning salon employee, with Rick Gomez, best known as Ada David Vasquez from FX's Justified, playing an ice cream parlor worker named Todd. Screenwriter Andr&#233 Nemec, who went on to write the fourth Mission: Impossible movie, Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, »

Film Review: ‘H.’

21 July 2015 11:14 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

After a mysterious meteor explosion, residents of a rural area in upstate New York begin to fall into what newscasters call “spontaneously induced narcoleptic states” — and unfortunately, so will audiences — in “H.,” an atmospheric yet impenetrable low-budget twist on end-is-nigh blockbusters, enigmatically crafted by hipster filmmaking duo Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia. The first and only pic to put this critic to sleep on three separate viewings, “H.” imagines itself a cross between classic Greek tragedy and an M. Night Shyamalan creepfest, but was made in haste to qualify for the Venice Biennale’s College-Cinema Program, with the result that its many original and inspired ideas were forced into a cold, audience-alienating format. Beginning with berths at Sundance and Berlin, and boosted by an Independent Spirit “Someone to Watch” award, the confounding project has found widespread fest support, while commercial prospects look grim.

The Romantic Comedy Is Having a Revolution — And It's Happening on TV

6 July 2015 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Deciding to stick with a TV series is no small commitment. It demands a certain level of trust, as week after week (or, in the era of binge-watching, hour after hour) we invite characters and their stories back into our living rooms. As a relationship, it's interactive. It's volatile. And most importantly, it's intimate. In that sense, TV would seem an ideal medium for romantic comedy. After all, from "Mad About You" to "How I Met Your Mother," sitcoms have been delivering romantic stories with good humor for decades. But the beats and aesthetic of the rom-com as we know it — think "You've Got Mail" — has long been the domain of studio movie-making. Read More: 11 of the Most Unconventional and Innovative Romantic Comedies Eventually, the "You've Got Mail" formula turned into a trend. The trend turned into a trope. And as for where we stand now, the 90-minute rom-com is »

It’s Time to Add New Actresses to the Emmy Comedy Mix

4 June 2015 11:42 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

By any measure, television’s renaissance has been good for women. But the long list of compelling female characters gets shorter when drama series are taken out of the mix.

Across broadcast, cable and digital, traditional half-hour comedies don’t pack the same pop-culture punch as the antics of Olivia Pope, Carrie Mathison, Alicia Florrick or Daenerys Targaryen. It’s harder to generate consistent laughs than it is consistent gasps, based on the ratio of dramas to comedies across the dial these days.

The only thing harder, it seems, than fielding a fresh comedy hit is for an actress to become a breakout star in a new comedy. This is where a little Emmy attention could offer a big boost to a promising show and budding talent. But Emmy voters are inclined to favor incumbents, which leaves little room for fresh faces.

“There are Medium and Little-Sized Movies about People, and There are Big Movies About Robots”: Helen Hunt on Ride

29 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

As an actress, Helen Hunt has thrived in the entertainment industry for over four decades. She’s won an Oscar, Golden Globe Awards and Primetime Emmys. She has succeeded on a large scale as both a film and a television actress, which is no small feat considering that, until recently, film and television actors have been largely kept in distinct and relatively immutable categories. Hunt has been directing for years, too, from episodes of Mad About You to her first feature film in 2007, Then She Found Me. But not until her latest effort, Ride, has she taken it upon herself […] »

12 February 2015 2:32 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actress and singer Alexandra Socha has been upped to a series regular on Amazon’s ’80s-set comedy from Steven Soderbergh, “Red Oaks,” Variety has learned exclusively.

Socha, who’s had recurring arcs on “Royal Pains,” “The Big C” and “Damages” and replaced Lea Michele in “Spring Awakening’s” original Broadway production in 2008, was a guest star in the pilot for Amazon Studios, which premiered last year on Amazon Prime Instant Video. The full series is set to bow later this year.

The coming-of-age series, set in suburban New Jersey in the mid-’80s, follows college student David Myers (Craig Roberts), working the summer as an assistant tennis pro at the Red Oaks Country Club, during the last hurrah before his adult life begins. Paul Reiser (“Mad About You”) and Jennifer Grey (“Dirty Dancing”) also star.

Socha will continue her role as Skye in the series.

Oscar Nominees Blur Lines Between Big and Small Screens

5 February 2015 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the divide between film and TV becomes increasingly difficult to discern, it’s far less uncommon to see well-known TV actors playing juicy roles on the big screen. And now that TV is no longer the death knell it once was for performers hoping for a film career, some of the industry’s best talent is emanating from TV. It’s also the medium actors are most frequently recognized for. As frontrunner supporting actor nominee J.K. Simmons told Variety last year before “Whiplash,” with his breakthrough role, opened, “It’s rather sobering to realize more people have seen my Farmers Insurance commercials than everything put together.”

Among the year’s acting Oscar nominees, several are known for their series work, including Steve Carell (NBC’s “The Office”), Benedict Cumberbatch (PBS’ “Sherlock”), J.K. Simmons (TNT’s “The Closer,” NBC’s “Growing Up Fisher”), and Laura Dern (HBO’s “Enlightened”). Patricia Arquette »

Watch: Anton Yelchin & Berenice Marlohe Have A '5 To 7' Romance In New Trailer

26 January 2015 4:10 PM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

French stereotypes in American cinema, you’re going to have to wait a little longer. Writer/director Victor Levin’s feature directorial debut, “5 to 7,” is an unorthodox romance about an aspiring novelist, Brian (Anton Yelchin), who engages in an affair with Arielle (Berenice Marlohe), a gorgeous, free-spirited French woman (is there any other kind in American movies?) who also happens to be happily married. This open affair becomes complicated when Brian and Arielle fall in love, which doesn’t sit well with Arielle’s diplomat husband, Valery (Lambert Wilson a.k.a. Merovingian from the two shitty “Matrix” sequels), who’s also seeing someone on the side (Olivia Thirlby). Is it too much to hope for a foursome in the third act to perhaps bring something genuinely interesting and “thought-provoking” to such a maudlin-looking romance? Levin primarily hails from the world of the small screen, having written many episodes of "Mad Men, »

Judd Apatow on Hauling 24-Year-Old Simpsons Episode from 'Deep Storage'

9 January 2015 12:39 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Writer-director Judd Apatow (Bridesmaids, Girls) can officially add “Simpsons scribe” to his IMDb page resumé this Sunday — and he owes it all to being a hoarder.

Sunday’s episode, in which Homer becomes Bart’s new best friend after being hypnotized into thinking he’s a 10-year-old boy, was written as a spec script by Apatow in 1990 during the show’s first season.

TVLine spoke with Apatow and Simpsons executive producer Al Jean about Sunday’s throwback episode (Sunday, 8/7c), its two-decade journey to the screen and whether it could mark the beginning of a beautiful writing partnership.
