Slasher."

Synopsis

Summer sitcom rewind: 'NewsRadio' - 'The Public Domain/Super Karate Monkey Death Car'

4 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As I announced last week, instead of picking one classic drama season to revisit over the summer, I'm trying an experiment, highlighting different classic sitcom episodes from the past. First up for this summer sitcom rewind: "The Public Domain" and "Super Karate Monkey Death Car," a pair of "NewsRadio" episodes from early in the show's fourth season, coming up just as soon as I have fancy plans, and pants to match... In terms of their status at the time they aired, "NewsRadio" is among the more obscure shows I expect I'll be dealing with this summer. The mid-'90s was a pretty great period for TV comedy: "Seinfeld" at its peak, "The Simpsons" at its peak or close to it, "Frasier" presenting classical excellence each week and each season, "Friends" being a phenomenon, etc., plus other series like "3rd Rock from the Sun" and "The Drew Carey Show" that had »

Peabody Awards: Tom Brokaw Shines In Stellar Last Act

16 May 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Tom Brokaw spent more than 20 years in a pitched three-way battle as anchor of the “NBC Nightly News.” Yet his greatest legacy, frankly, might be how classily he has defined what the transition to emeritus status can look like.

Since gracefully handing the anchor reins to Brian Williams in 2004, Brokaw has remained a welcome presence on NBC, but has branched out beyond that — writing books devoted to “The Greatest Generation,” a demographic TV hardly chases; and hosting documentaries for various channels.

Networks always talk about keeping such personalities in the family, but it rarely happens. Brokaw’s last act elegantly bucks that trend.

Tipsheet:

What: Peabody Awards

‘Scandal,’ ‘House of Cards,’ ‘The Bridge,’ ‘Orphan Black’ Among Peabody Winners

2 April 2014 6:11 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This year’s Peabody Award winners are a typically eclectic list ranging from hits such as ABC’s “Scandal” and AMC’s “Breaking Bad” to Netflix’s groundbreaking drama “House of Cards” to BBC America’s buzzworthy “Orphan Black.”

Among the scripted series selections were FX’s “The Bridge” was recognized for its focus on border and immigration issues in the context of a murder-mystery drama; Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”; the French zombie drama “The Returned” (which aired on SundanceTV with subtitles); the BBC America mini “Broadchurch” (now being remade for Fox); and Comedy Central’s sketch series “Key & Peele.”

The lone unscripted series getting the nod was CNN’s culinary travelogue “Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown.” Feature docs on the list include HBO’s “Six by Sondheim” and TCM’s “The Story of Film” and Alex Gibney’s latest for HBO, “Maximum Mea Culpa: Silence in the House of God. »

Best TV Pilots: NewsRadio

28 March 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

NewsRadio Season 1, Episode 1 “Pilot”

Written by Paul Simms

Directed by James Burrows

Aired 3/21/1995 on NBC

 

Airing as a mid-season replacement after the failure of The Martin Short Show and the Gene Wilder vehicle Something Wilder, it still boggles me to this day that NewsRadio wasn’t more popular in its time. Debuting between Wings and Frasier (two shows it would often be sandwiched between over the years), NewsRadio never achieved the same mainstream penetration as other seminal NBC comedies from the same era, teetering on the edge of cancellation and ending in tragedy, airing a creative but deflated fifth season in the shadow of Phil Hartman’s murder.

Revisiting NewsRadio‘s pilot, it still astounds me the show never took off. Mixing farce with hilarious ironies, the pilot opens with Wnyx’s new news director Dave Nelson (a post-Kidz in the Hall Dave Foley) arriving (approximately) 35 seconds early to »

Greatest TV Pilots: Newsradio ‘Pilot’

12 March 2014 9:17 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Newsradio, “Pilot”

Written by Paul Simms

Directed by James Burrows

Original air date: March. 21, 1995 on NBC

As far as sitcoms go, Newsradio is a diamond in the rough.  Despite a not-so-unique workplace setting, the show successfully combines wit and physical comedy, without ever feeling dull or predictable.  It has the kind of quick, self-sustaining energy that we love about sitcoms, and it all began with the pilot episode.  Of course, every series begins with a pilot, but with Newsradio, the first episode never feels forced or stiff in the way many others have.  Often times, sitcoms struggle with comedic timing in their first few outings.  Featuring a veteran cast, boasting a strong background in comedy (Dave Foley, Kids in the Hall; Phil Hartman, Saturday Night Live; Andy Dick, The Ben Stiller Show), Newsradio hits its stride right from the get-go.

The episode opens with Dave (Dave Foley) arriving at Wnyx, »

Danny McBride Up For Knight Rider Remake?

14 February 2014 2:20 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Handle this story with your sturdiest pair of rumour gloves, but the courageous bloggers at Schmoes Know believe they have a major exclusive on the Weinsteins' developing Knight Rider movie. According to the Schmoes' intelligence, Danny McBride and Chris Pratt have been offered central roles.Knight Rider, should you need reminding, was a 1980s TV action series about David Hasselhoff and a talking car. Or, if you prefer, it was a shadowy flight into the dangerous world of a man who does not exist. The Hoff played Michael Knight, a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law. You know what's sad? We didn't even have to look that shit up.What we know for certain about this new version is that Brad Copeland has been tasked with the first draft of the screenplay. »

Community Ep. 5.06 “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking” is an amusing little head-scratcher

30 January 2014 7:51 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Community Season 5, Episode 6 “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking”

Written by Monica Padrick

Directed by Tristram Shapeero

Airs Thursday nights at 8pm Et on NBC

With the dust finally settling from the whirlwind of change Community’s been through the last few weeks, “Analysis of Cork-Based Networking” is our first real look at the “new” Greendale – and despite a flurry of guest stars, it feels much like it did in its early days, before “Contemporary American Poultry” and “Modern Warfare”. Despite the cast changes, gas-leak infected season, and creative turnover the show’s experienced in the last few months, “Corked-Based Networking” shows there’s still plenty of gas in the comedic tank – and with a few new elements thrown into the mix, new characters and directions to explore.

The most interesting new wrinkle to the Community formula is Buzz Hickey, whose character unexpectedly becomes the focus of episode in its climatic moment. »

The L.A. Slasher Wishes Death on Reality TV

21 January 2014 2:11 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Reality TV has long been a thorn in our sides. No matter how you slice it, there's no reason for the cast of "Honey BooBoo" or "Duck Dynasty" to be celebrities, and while we are at it... who gives a shit what the real housewives of wherever are fighting about now? It's about time someone took this kind of nonsense to task!

Even cooler? Our own Sean Decker co-produced, and the film features cameos by Ashlynn Yennie (The Human Centipede), Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), Carlee Baker (Lucky McKee's The Woman), and Allison Kyler (Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2).

From the Press Release

Post-production on the independent feature film L.A. Slasher, directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (Girls Against Boys, The Alphabet Killer), has been completed.

Justified Premiere Recap: Counting Crowes

7 January 2014 8:10 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

A new Justified season hath brought new adversaries for U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens and new headaches for his frenemy Boyd Crowder.

Related | Justified Casting: We Spy Red John, NewsRadio Stars, House‘s Honey and Others

The FX drama’s Season 5 premiere opened with daft Dewey Crowe reaping a payday in court, for wounds physical and otherwise inflicted upon him by Raylan. But then the action moved over — and about 700 miles south — to another dimwitted Crowe, Dewey’s Florida cousin Dilly, who is short by half his payoff to a Coast Guard officer. When the guy makes fun of Dilly’s stutter once too often, »
