Chuck Lorre sells CBS on the comedic premise of single mothers

11 December 2012 3:16 PM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Though he has seen his greatest success of late mining humor from being a nerd (The Big Bang Theory), being fat (Mike And Molly), and having a penis (Two And A Half Men), Chuck Lorre got his start in the exciting start-up industry of single mother jokes—jokes that hit their mid-'90s boom with his work on Grace Under Fire and Cybill, and were instrumental in loosening social attitudes toward laughing at divorced moms, rather than drowning them in burlap sacks. Now Lorre is ready to return to those roots with a new multi-camera sitcom for CBS—one that »

CBS Buys Single-Mother Comedy From Chuck Lorre

11 December 2012 12:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chuck Lorre has sold another multicamera sitcom to CBS. The newest offering from the Chuck Lorre Lafeteria is Mom, about a single mother in Napa coping with her newfound sobriety; according to Deadline, CBS has ordered a pilot. Lorre co-wrote the script with Two and a Half Men's Eddie Gorodetsky and Gemma Baker, and it sounds a bit like one of Lorre's previous creations, Grace Under Fire, about … a single mother coping with newfound sobriety. Maybe you can go home again. »

CBS Orders Single Mom Comedy Pilot From Chuck Lorre & ‘Two And A Half Men’ Writers

11 December 2012 11:44 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Comedy king Chuck Lorre is expanding his relationship with CBS with a new half-hour project, which is instantly becoming a top prospect for the network’s fall 2013 schedule. The network has given a pilot production order to Mom, a multi-camera comedy from Lorre, who is behind half of CBS’ comedy series: Two And A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly. Lorre co-wrote Mom on spec with two members of his Two And A Half Men team, executive producer Eddie Gorodetsky and story editor Gemma Baker. Mom centers on a newly sober single mom who tries to pull her life together in Napa Valley. The project, which was developed internally at Warner Bros TV, marks Lorre’s first project under the blockbuster new four-year deal he inked with the studio in September. It also marks Lorre’s return to comedies with a female lead where he had »

"American Horror Story: Asylum" Recap: Dark Lady

29 November 2012 8:48 AM, PST | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

Confession time, y'all: I have no idea what the f*ck is going on. This week's American Horror Story: Asylum has had the effect on my wee brain of a Jolt Cola-sponsored 48-hour horror movie marathon held in an operating steel mill. I'm no longer able to discern heroes from villains, the dead from the living, or a fake Boston accent from a real German one.

Asylum, you have finally broken me with these four simple, yet impossibly beautiful, words:

We begin with a bit of background nunsense: two smiling nursing sisters titter about Lilies of the Field as they arrive for their shift through Briarcliff's front doors. I'm half expecting them to punch a clock on the way in as a sheepdog punches himself out. ("Mornin', Sam." "Mornin', Sister.") They arrive in the medical ward, where a very grey, very sweaty Grace (Lizzie Brochere) lies barely conscious under a sheet. »

A TV Fan’s Guide To Broadway Stars Arriving In Fall Lineup

19 September 2012 10:51 PM, PDT | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Sam Negin

Theater Editor & Columnist

***

This year’s fall TV lineup boasts an exciting number of Broadway stars popping up in the mix, particularly in new shows. I’d like to introduce some of these theater vets to avid TV fans — not only to support Broadway actors but also to see if they can, through their TV work, lure TV viewers out of the house and into a Broadway show (or several!).

Tony winners Laura Benanti (Broadway’s Gypsy, Women on the Verge of A Nervous Breakdown) and Julie White (TV’s Grace Under Fire and Broadway’s The Little Dog Laughed) are coming to TV on a series called Go On, starring Matthew Perry (TV’s Friends). In the show, Perry’s character joins a support group run by Benanti and becomes friends with another member of the group, a lesbian widow played by Ms. White. The show »

Birthday shoutouts go to Chandler Massey (above), who is 22, Colin Firth is 52, Ryan Phillippe is 38, Johnathon Schaech is 43, Siobhan Fahey is 54.Here's something special for fans of Doctor Who. Ae member Carlos has started a Doctor Who Forum for fans of the show to discuss this season. Speaking of, how great did Rupert Graves look on the last episode, 25 years after Scudder? Out Aussie Rules footballer Jason Ball has launched a petition calling on the Afl to do more to wipe out homophobia. Zac Efron talks to The Advocate about his gay fans and the inevitably of playing a gay role: "I’d never take a role just for the sake of playing gay, but I’m always looking for a role that’s challenging, different, and entails some risk, so there’s no doubt in my mind that one of those characters will be gay at some point in the future. »

Focusing On Charlie Sheen’s ‘Anger Management’ as FX Orders 90 More Episodes

31 August 2012 12:13 AM, PDT | BuzzFocus.com | See recent BuzzFocus.com news »

It’s true, I like Anger Management and no, it didn’t happen overnight. While I’ve been a major supporter of FX’s comedy lineup, it’s definitely not made in the same cloth as It’s Always Sunny, Archer, The League, Louie or Wilfred (all of which are vastly different from each other). It was never billed to ape a certain tone or look like any of its older siblings at FX, it was created to lure fans of Two and a Half Men who chanted for Charlie Harper’s return, as well as viewers looking for a simple, entertaining comedy. Why? Ratings for one. The series delievered 4.53 million total viewers (2.5 million in the 18-49 demo) for several weeks before the Olympics altered ratings in August. FX will take those kind of numbers any day. Louie dreams of those numbers. Anger Management got a 10-90 deal, which meant »

Clyde Phillips Inks New Deal With Lionsgate TV, Talks About Rebooting ‘Nurse Jackie’

7 August 2012 4:33 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: Clyde Phillips has signed a new two-year overall deal with Lionsgate Television. Phillips recently joined Lionsgate’s dark comedy Nurse Jackie, and his duties as executive producer/showrunner on the Showtime series will fall under his new pact with Lionsgate, which also covers development. Phillips was already talking to Lionsgate about renewing his overall deal when the opportunity to take over Nurse Jackie came up when original showrunners Linda Wallem and Liz Brixius stepped down. “All the stars aligned,” Phillips said. “I thought Nurse Jackie was really good, and I thought it could be great.” He also liked the prospect of working with Nurse Jackie star/exec producer Edie Falco and the fact that he was not asked to just come in and “babysit” an established series. “I was asked to reboot the show, and that’s a challenge I willingly and happily accept.” Related: Showtime Renews ‘Nurse Jackie »

Chuck Lorre Releasing $100 Coffee Table Book

1 August 2012 12:30 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Chuck Lorre is releasing a coffee table book composed of selections from the vanity cards he airs at the end of each of his shows (Grace Under Fire, Cybill, Dharma & Greg, Mike & Molly, Two and a Half Men, The Big Bang Theory). What Doesn't Kill Us, Makes Us Bitter will cost $100. Yes, $100. The money goes to charity, but that still seems like a lot just to read a rich guy complain about how critics don't like Two and a Half Men enough. The book doesn't include all the vanity cards, but they did throw that extra comma in the title for free, so »

Emmys: Chuck Lorre Of ‘Two And A Half Men’, ‘The Big Bang Theory’, ‘Mike & Molly’

16 June 2012 4:34 PM, PDT | Deadline | See recent Deadline news »

Chuck Lorre has experienced the lows and highs of network TV situation comedies, from the challenging situation with Grace Under Fire (1993-98) and Cybill (1995-98) to his current status as co-creator and driving force behind a trio of CBS comedies: Two And A Half Men, The Big Bang Theory and Mike & Molly. It doesn’t sound like it’s gone according to any kind of plan, and in fact that’s the case, as the sometimes fiery, always funny, veteran showrunner makes clear. If he deserves at least a humanitarian Emmy for surviving the ordeal of Two And A Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s three-and-a-half men meltdown the previous season, he’s been in the game long enough not to expect much. Awardsline: Let’s start with Two And A Half Men. Why was it important to you to keep it on the air even after part of that eighth season got scratched? »

Tim Doyle Joins ABC’s ‘Last Man Standing’ As New Showrunner

11 June 2012 2:00 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Veteran comedy writer-producer Tim Doyle (Rules Of Engagement) has joined ABC’s comedy series Last Man Standing as executive producer/showrunner for its upcoming second season. Kevin Abbott, who held the post for most of last season stepping in for creator Jack Burditt, will continue to serve as an executive producer and will remain integral to Last Man Standing but non-exclusive; his pilot, ABC’s Malibu Country, was picked up to series. (Abbott serves as executive producer/showrunner on Malibu Country, which he’d had in development prior to coming aboard Last Man Standing.) On Lms, which will be paired with Malibu Country on Fridays in the fall, Doyle and Abbott will executive produce alongside Marty Adelstein, Becky Clements, Shawn Levy, Tim Allen, Kevin Hench, Rick Baker, and Richard Messina. In addition to the behind-the-scene showrunner change, there will be an on-screen one too on Lms next season. As our sister site TVLine first reported, »

Oprah Praises Tyler Perry For Keeping Calm Amid Studio Fire

2 May 2012 12:06 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oprah Winfrey has heaped praise on director pal Tyler Perry for keeping his cool after a major fire broke out at his Atlanta, Georgia film studio on Tuesday night.

More than 100 firefighters were called to tackle the blaze at the huge complex, which includes a back lot, a 400-seat theatre, five sound stages and a gym.

Although no one is thought to have been injured in the fire, part of the building collapsed before emergency officials managed to contain it.

Perry has yet to comment on the incident, but Winfrey, who co-executive produced 2009 movie Precious with the filmmaker, reveals he managed to remain calm and collected throughout the chaos of the blaze and showed "real grace" while handling the situation.

In a series of Twitter.com posts on Wednesday, she writes, "my friend and younger big brother @tylerperry; his backlot studio was damaged by fire last night.

"His attitude in the midst of it all was calm and feeling blessed no one was injured. Real Grace under fire".

Investigators have yet to establish the cause of the fire. »
