Charlie Saxton and Dave Foley join Misfits U.S. remake

Last month it was announced that the British series Misfits is set for a U.S. remake from Freeform, and now we have word on two more additions to the cast, with Deadline reporting that Charlie Saxton (Hung) and Dave Foley (NewsRadio) have joined the project as series regulars.

Saxton will play Simon, who is described as “Intelligent and odd, Simon makes his way through life ignored by the world at large. Alternately tormented and shunned by his roommates, Simon has just as much trouble connecting with the other misfits he meets at community service.” Foley is set to portray Bernie, “a disheveled driver (think Uber), he’s clumsy, dorky and wearing clothes from 1990. Everything about this guy screams ‘desperate’”.

The two new additions join the previously cast Ashleigh Lathrop (Siren), Tre Hall (Rebel), Allie MacDonald (Orphan Black) and Jack Cannavale (Nurse Jackie) in the series, which has been written

Newswire: R.I.P. Brad Grey, legendary manager and producer and ex-Paramount CEO

WB Announces Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition On Blu-Ray

With the Wonder Woman live action movie set to arrive in theaters in just over two months, it’s understandable that Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment will want to put out as much merchandise bearing the likeness of the Amazon Princess as possible. One item in particular that’s worthy of attention is that of the forthcoming Wonder Woman: Commemorative Edition.

Truth be told, it’s technically not a new offering, but rather a repackaging of the amazing animated film originally released back in 2009. Unfortunately, no R-rated cut will be included as was previously reported. Despite any second guessing you may have, do know that one exists out there somewhere, as the filmmakers have admitted they had to make some alterations in order to get the PG-13 rating because, at the time, WB didn’t afford as much leeway with mature content as they do now.

Review: Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with 'Divorce'

Review: Sarah Jessica Parker returns to HBO with 'Divorce'
For decades, the TV business operated under the mistaken belief that audiences wouldn't watch shows about unlikable characters. What the last 20-odd years of television has proved, however, is that viewers are just fine with unlikable characters — provided the shows understand that they're unlikable. Many of the best comedies of this period — from Seinfeld to Veep, Curb Your Enthusiasm to It's Always in Philadelphia, Arrested Development to BoJack Horseman — understand from the jump that they're about fundamentally terrible individuals. Even if the audience doesn't catch on at first, the people making the shows understand and embrace the nastiness and stupidity of it all, and that only makes the comedy more effective. On the flip side, some of the lamest and most insufferable comedies of recent vintage — say, Mixology or Happyish — don't seem to recognize how irritating their main characters are, which only doubles down on other creative problems. It's bad

From ‘Catastrophe’ to ‘Divorce,’ Sharon Horgan Wryly Observes Relationships

Sharon Horgan is not, in fact, divorced. She is happily married, with two daughters aged 12 and 7. But the 46-year-old British executive producer and creator of HBO’s new series “Divorce” — starring “Sex and the City” luminary Sarah Jessica Parker, in her highly anticipated return to TV — has made a career out of marital comedies with a brutally honest touch.

Most Americans discovered Horgan through Amazon’s “Catastrophe,” which she and Rob Delaney write and in which they star, playing a couple struggling with married life after an unplanned pregnancy. But the comedy that launched her career was the BBC’s “Pulling,” about a woman who calls off her wedding the night before the big event. So you might say that “Divorce,” which debuts Oct. 9, is the final chapter in Horgan’s trilogy of the wryly observed life cycle of a relationship.

“It’s quite nice that there’s a pattern, because

Comedy’s Comeback: Networks Push Boundaries With Bold New Half-Hours

Comedy’s Comeback: Networks Push Boundaries With Bold New Half-Hours
To students of television comedy, “Community” star Joel McHale is making a big transition this year.

The leading man of the most unconventional, unrelentingly meta sitcom ever to air on broadcast is moving to CBS for a multi-camera show, “The Great Indoors,” which pokes fun at the pop culture punchline of the moment: those wacky millennials. McHale plays a maverick photojournalist who is brought in from the field to rescue a magazine overrun by young staffers.

Across the dial, from broadcast to cable to streaming heavyweights, the number of comedy series is rising as networks seek a counterweight to the explosive growth of original dramas during the past five years. The expansion has opened up the playing field for traditional three-camera sitcoms as well as more esoteric single-camera fare.

Art Streiber for Variety

To McHale, the significance, in creative terms, of the single-camera vs. multi-camera format has been wildly overstated at a time when the boundaries of
