Upfronts: Nat Geo Will Revive ‘Explorer,’ Test Comedy

15 April 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Explorers for the adventure-and-science organization National Geographic have long traveled to new places. Now the cable network that is aligned with the 127-year old society wants to do more of the same.

The National Geographic Channel, owned in tandem with 21st Century Fox, said it would test a comedic series in 2016 while rebooting its signature “Explorer” program by returning it to the schedule for the first time in five years, all as part of the network’s efforts in the upfront, the annual process through which U.S. TV outlets try to sell the bulk of their ad inventory.

Speaking at a lunch held Wednesday, Nat Geo CEO Courteney Monroe said the network wanted to place more emphasis on its affiliation with the nonprofit educational institution while trying bolder programming concepts that may push the boundaries of the organization’s signature yellow rectangle.

The 22 Coolest TV Nerds: An Evolutionary History

14 April 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It seems quaint that there was a 1984 movie called "Revenge of the Nerds." Thirty-one years later, it's clear that the nerds have won. They dominate movies and TV with their superhero and sci-fi sagas. They've made Comic-Con the central pop cultural event of the year. They got us all to care about Jedi knights and hobbits and Lannisters. They built the hardware and the software that you're using to read this article.

And they've even made that process entertaining in the HBO comedy series "Silicon Valley," which returned for its second season on April 12. Created by "King of the Hill"'s Mike Judge, the live-action show follows a group of entrepreneurial coders in the cutthroat land of Google as they join the digital gold rush and try to invent the next killer app. In just one season, Richard, Erich, Dinesh, Bertram, and Jared have become some of our favorite nerds on TV. »

Deadline reports that FX is teaming up with Sean “Diddy” Combs and his production company Revolt to produce the animated comedy Brightmoor. Written by Detroit comedian Cp and former King of the Hill writer Chip Hall, the show is described as a "black South Park" that takes place in inner-city Detroit and focuses on the young African-American students of Brightmoor Elementary.

How 'Parks and Recreation' found all-time greatness in simple goodness

23 February 2015 6:00 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Early in the debut episode of "Parks and Recreation," Leslie Knope turned to the camera and announced, "It's a good time to be a woman in politics: Hillary Clinton, Sarah Palin, me, Nancy Pelosi. I like to tell people, 'Get on board and buckle up, because my ride's going to be a big one.'" At the time, Leslie (Amy Poehler) was a low-level functionary in the small town government of Pawnee, Indiana — moments before that declaration, we saw her at work, trying to coax a homeless man off of a playground slide — and that speech marked her as delusional. In hindsight, she was prophetic. Leslie began the series a powerless civil servant who was an object of derision and/or pity. She ends it (the series finale airs tomorrow night at 10 on NBC) an influential federal official who counts Madeleine Albright as a confidante and scares the bejeezus out of John McCain, »
