Jon Stewart and HBO Made The Right Call to Kill Their Animated Cable News Parody, and Here’s Why

4 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For Jon Stewart, the idea seemed like a natural fit: An animated daily show parodying cable news that could comment on current events in real time.

But after a lengthy development, Stewart and HBO officially pulled the plug this Tuesday. And it was probably for the best.

As part of its 4-year deal with Stewart, HBO built him an animation studio in New Jersey. He started working with 3D graphics company Otoy on the creation of short-form video projects.

The idea: Stewart would come up with a way to produce animated shorts online throughout the day that would post almost immediately after news arises. A web destination (think “The Onion”) would be created, and the shorts would be collected into a half-hour version that would also air on the linear HBO channel.

Sadly, Jon Stewart’s long-gestating animation project with HBO will never see the light of day.

The network announced that it would not proceed with the short-form digital venture that was supposed to comment on topical events. The problem comes from the difficulty of marrying the longer production times of the medium to the quick turnaround needed to stay newsworthy.

HBO Scraps Jon Stewart-Led Digital Animation Venture

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO and Jon Stewart have scrapped plans for a short-form animation venture that was designed to provide topical segments to various HBO platforms.

The venture was announced in November 2015, shortly after Stewart signed off of “The Daily Show” after a 17-year run. HBO said it would continue to pursue other projects with Stewart. HBO set a four-year production pact with Stewart that included the animation project and a first-look option on film and TV projects.

“HBO and Jon Stewart have decided not to proceed with a short form digital animated project. We all thought the project had great potential but there were technical issues in terms of production and distribution that proved too difficult given the quick turnaround and topical nature of the material,” HBO said in a statement. “We’re excited to report that we have some future projects together which you will be hearing about in the near future.”

Jordan Klepper is gearing up for his big debut.

The Daily Show correspondent may be leaving Comedy Central's flagship series to take over the coveted 11:30 p.m. slot once held by Stephen Colbert and most recently Larry Wilmore — but he'll still continue to work closely with Trevor Noah, as the Daily Show host is an executive producer on the yet-to-be-named series.

"The goal of [the new show] is for it to be a companion piece with The Daily Show, so we’re going to deal with politics and the news of the day, but also attack it from a different perspective and »

Trevor Noah Takes Super-Classy High Road on Donald and Melania Trump’s Marriage (Exclusive Video)

12 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Many people are speculating about the state of Donald and Melania Trump’s marriage, but “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah isn’t one of them. Never, nope, definitely not. For the second time in two days, the first lady has spurned her husband’s attempt to hold her hand in public, with both moments quickly going viral. TheWrap asked “The Daily Show” host for his take, but he took the high road. Maybe a little sarcastically.

Donald Trump Shakes Up the Emmy Talk Show Race, As Stephen Colbert, Samantha Bee, and Trevor Noah Get In The Game

15 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As host of “The Apprentice,” one thing eluded Donald Trump: an Emmy. The fact that the Television Academy never awarded him one drove Trump — whom you might know is now the President of the United States of America — completely bonkers.

Trump wanted an Emmy bad enough that he went on the Hollywood campaign trail in 2008, taking trade newspaper reporters (including, um, this one) to lunch in an attempt to curry attention and grab a win for “The Apprentice.” But that was in the middle of “The Amazing Race’s” hot streak. Ultimately the closest Trump came to Emmy glory was singing the “Green Acres” theme with Megan Mullally on stage at the 2006 ceremony.

It’s a bit ironic, then, that Trump may play a hand in which shows are nominated — and ultimately win — this year’s Emmy for Outstanding Variety Talk Series.

"Then one day you came and you said, 'I got a new agent!'" the host recalled, adding that Garner told them she was moving to Los Angeles. "And we said, 'That poor thing' because you were so nice, you are so nice… We thought »

The Personal Is Communal: Crowdfunding Picks

19 May 2017 7:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

“Beba”

We all have that friend who constantly “knows how you feel.” You know what we’re talking about. Well, trust us, this group of crowdfunding picks really know how you feel. Each respective women-centric project is all about taking the personal and exuding it into the world for one very important purpose: to create a sense of community.

The Feels,” Jenée Lamarque’s second feature, combines two subjects rarely portrayed and discussed onscreen: a lesbian bachelorette party and the female orgasm — or lack thereof. Featuring a unique mixture of comedic actresses, stand-up comedians, and real life friends, this improvised comedy allows a space for women to “to reflect on trust, love, and their journeys to experiencing their first orgasm.”

“Beba,” directed by Sofia Geld and Rebeca Huntt, is both a documentary and a memoir. It follows Rebeca Huntt as she navigates her racial identity as an Afro-Latina activist before, during, and after attending an elite, mostly-white college. Employing various forms of media, “Beba’s” multi-layered visual composition matches its thematic mission as a “love letter to black life, in all of its complexities.”

Though she loved reading “Peter Pan” growing up, writer-director Rebecca Woolf soon realized that she was “always looking for a Wendy she couldn’t find” in J.M. Barrie’s work. Inspired by this invisibility, Woolf’s film, “Pans,” puts a feminist and ‘90s twist on a universally known tale, poignantly tackling the “timeless and systematic complexities of growing up girl” head-on.

The idea for the comedy web series “Nonprofit” also stems from personal experience, as creator Luann Algoso’s pulls inspiration from her own career in nonprofit organizations. Its main protagonist, Gabby Antonio, is just beginning her career as a community organizer. She quickly learns that doing “good work,” particularly as a woman of color, may not be as effortless as it seems.

Finally, Ruth Leitman’s latest documentary crucially highlights those who continue to fight for reproductive rights. “Lady Parts Justice in The New World Order” follows Lizz Winstead and Lady Parts Justice, a team of comedians and cultural influencers who are — now, more than ever — “using humor and outrage to expose the bad and elect the good.”

Here are our women-created and women-centric crowdfunding picks for May 2017.

The Feels” — Directed by Jenée Lamarque; Written by Jenée Lamarque and Lauren Parks

The Feels

Right away, it’s clear that “The Feels” is a bachelorette party film like no other. As a group of friends celebrate not one, but two brides (played by Constance Wu and Angela Trimbur), they discover that Lu (Trimbur) has never had an orgasm. This immediately surprises her partner, and, as a result, this weekend of fun transforms into a humorous yet touching reflection on female relationships and sexuality.

Writer-director Jenée Lamarque wanted to make an improvised film not just for the “natural humor that arises between girlfriends,” but also as a way to ensure that its discussions of sexuality “feel real, true, and particular.” Moreover, Lamarque describes this film as specifically “engineered to create opportunities for women, Poc and the Lgbtq community.” It features an 80 percent female cast and a 68 percent female crew. “The Feels” sounds like a refreshing approach both behind and in front of the camera, to say the least.

Help “The Feels” with its final stages of postproduction on Kickstarter.

“Beba” (Hybrid Documentary) —Directed by Sofia Geld and Rebeca Huntt

https://medium.com/media/b3977a92874f870d2ebf78de9f6cf673/href

Rebeca Huntt and Sofia Geld’s hybrid documentary, which explores the complexities of Huntt’s racial identity, is narratively structured by her time in college. As she grapples with a friendship with a wealthy white classmate, she also faces the loss of a fellow activist of color. In true documentary form, “Beba” introduces Huntt’s family, former teachers, and childhood friends as a means of exploring “memory and personal insight.” These verité segments are also intercut with other forms of media; for instance, animation sequences “depict the duel weights of institutional racism and systematic violence that shaped [Huntt’s] adolescence.”

As the subject and film progress, Huntt develops more self-awareness, and “Beba’s” narrative becomes much more psychological. This project therefore offers a unique and poetic insight into race relations that is both “intersectional and deeply personal.”

Help “Beba” deliver this coming of age story on Kickstarter.

Pans” — Written and Directed by Rebecca Woolf

https://medium.com/media/5614d9435ddf8b5934109ab6029cbe67/href

Though “Pans” is inspired from J.M. Barrie’s work, the two are far from the same thing. In fact, amidst its teenagers, surfers, and skateboarders, Rebecca Woolf’s grunge-inspired film is arguably darker and much more complex. It explores sexual assault, as well as the isolation and shame that accompanies it. Wynne Darling (who is also struggling with the separation of her parents) must handle not only her assailant, but the female community who refused to believe her truth, which is a theme that Woolf recognizes as particularly appropriate in today’s America.

Pans” was written for all teenage girls, urging them to “be unapologetic in their art, awareness, and necessary rebellion.” As a result, its ultimate product arises in unlikely sisterhood and solidarity. As it trailers stresses, “you will know these girls not by [their] silence, but by [their] noise.”

Help “Pans” rewrite fairytales on Kickstarter.

“Nonprofit” (Web Series) — Created by Luann Algoso; Written by Jessica Yen

https://medium.com/media/edb4b69ca025e4c3442779923f6fb833/href

“Nonprofit” follows Gaby Antonio as she begins her career at Apiisa (Asian Pacific Islanders in Solidarity Alliance). Faced with planning her first major event, Gabby quickly learns just how great the divide is between nonprofit “ideals and reality.” Ultimately, she learns that community and social change go hand in hand.

“Nonprofit’s” premise offers something not yet touched in mainstream media, and does so in a quirky and sentimental way. However, what is perhaps most exciting is its setting: Portland, Oregan — also known as America’s whitest metropolitan area. By specifically exploring stories of women of color, Algoso’s series works to “push back on racially homogenized narratives,” and is an important testament to both activism and representation.

Embrace the “Nonprofit” sector by contributing to its Seed&Spark campaign.

“Lady Parts Justice in The New World Order” (Documentary) —Written and Directed by Ruth Leitman

https://medium.com/media/95c230dc297544a10130295aa257cfc7/href

Co-founded by Lizz Winstead (co-creator of “The Daily Show”), Lady Parts Justice (Lpj) is a group of feminist activists who seek to create media that not only entertains, but also educates the public on the history and legality surround abortion rights. Leitman’s documentary follows Lpj as they confront the 2016 election and their own shortcomings as an activist group.

This summer, Leitman and her crew will follow Lpj on their Vagical Mystery Tour, which will stop at various abortion clinics throughout the country. Alongside a kickass comedy show to raise funds, this tour will provide hands-on support to each respective local clinic. Before moving on to the next city, Lpj aims to “build an army of local volunteers” that will continue to fight for the clinic once they are gone. This documentary will highlight those who stand willing to fight in this uncertain time, and will therefore remind its viewers that they are not alone. As Leitman stresses, “Sometimes you need the funniest person in the room to hit home what’s most important.”

Help Leitman and Lpj laugh back at this administration by donating to their Seed&Spark campaign.

To be considered for Women and Hollywood’s biweekly crowdfunding feature, please write to womenandhollywoodinterns@gmail.com. All formats (features, shorts, web series, etc.) are welcome. Projects must be by and/or about women.

Throughout its sixth season, Scandal was forced to handle its toughest adversary yet: President Trump.

As star Kerry Washington revealed on Thursday’s The Daily Show, the results of the real-life presidential election heavily influenced Season 6 of the ABC drama — and an entire storyline had to be scrapped when it too closely mirrored the actual investigation into Trump’s ties with Russia.

‘Daily Show’ Blasted for ‘Transphobic’ Donald Trump Tweet

Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show” was hit with heavy criticism on Wednesday after tweeting a message that was interpreted by many as transphobic. The tweet, which no longer appears on the show’s Twitter account but was preserved by the New York Daily News, was published shortly after reports broke that House Majority Leader once suggested that Donald Trump was being paid by Russian leader Vladimir Putin. The tweet offered a number of suggestions for news that would break between 5 and 6 p.m. on Thursday, with the final option being, “Donald Trump announces he is now Donna Trump.” Also Read: James Woods. »

It took the apocalypse to bring Michael Moore back to television.

TNT has ordered the series “Michael Moore Live from the Apocalypse” (that’s a working title), a new non-fiction series from Moore set to premiere in late fall.
