Pilot Episode For AMC’s Halt And Catch Fire Is Currently Available Online

20 May 2014 2:51 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

At the moment, there does not appear to be much buzz surrounding AMC’s upcoming series Halt and Catch Fire, but perhaps there should be. The show has an intriguing cast which includes Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies), Scoot McNairy (Non-Stop), Mackenzie Davis (That Awkward Moment) and Kerry Bishé (Argo). But more intriguing is the premise: a dramatic thriller set in the early 1980s right in the midst of the PC revolution, where the series’ stars attempt to exploit aspects of Ibm’s PC design in order to create their own personal computer. AMC ordered 10 episodes for the first season and this week, the pilot was made available online.

Halt and Catch Fire was created by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers and the pilot episode was directed by Juan José Campanella, a man who has plenty of television experience under his belt. Campanella has directed multiple episodes of House M.D.Law and Order: Svu, »

Stephen Colbert Reads First Top 10 List on ‘The Late Show’ (Video)

23 April 2014 7:28 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Stephen Colbert did more than just discuss his future plans for “The Late Show” with current host David Letterman on Tuesday, he read his very own Top 10 list that he dug up from the past. The list, “Top 10 Cocktails for Santa,” was part of a packet Colbert had submitted to the show in 1997 to be considered as a writer. By the time Letterman's team reached out, however, Colbert was working on his Comedy Central series, “Strangers with Candy.” See video: 7 of David Letterman's Most Popular ‘Top Ten’ Lists on YouTube “He doesn't have the job  yet,” Letterman joked when. »

David Letterman Welcomes 'Boob' Stephen Colbert With Selfie

23 April 2014 5:15 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

"You look right at home," David Letterman joked as he welcomed his successor Stephen Colbert to Late Show With David Letterman Tuesday night. Colbert's appearance on Letterman marked the first time the two have been seen together publicly since Letterman announced his retirement earlier this month.

Why Stephen Colbert Is a Smart 'Late Show' Pick

In the clip above, Colbert tells the host, "I'm going to do whatever you have done here. It seems to have gone pretty well, Dave."

"It's gone...on," replied Letterman in typical sardonic wit.

Tribeca: Amy Sedaris on Never Aspiring to Do Film and Why She Couldn't Host Late Night

21 April 2014 7:24 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Sedaris appears only very briefly in the 2014 Tribeca Film Film Festival drama "Goodbye to All That" as the cat-loving boss to Paul Schneider's lead character. But like anything the actress and author stars in (including her recent appearance as a broker from hell in Comedy Central's hit new comedy show "Broad City"), she walks away with the most memorable performance. Indiewire caught up with Sedaris -- best known still to this day for creating and starring in Comedy Central's beloved comedy series "Strangers with Candy," which she helped adapt into the 2005 feature-length film of the same name -- to discuss her scene-stealing role in "Goodbye to All That" (the directorial debut of "Junebug" screenwriter Angus MacLachlan), her guest stint on "Broad City," and how she thinks her friend Stephen Colbert will fare as David Letterman's "Late Show" replacement. Like many of the indies that you've »

Jon Stewart, David Letterman congratulate Stephen Colbert on new 'Late Show' gig

10 April 2014 11:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Colbert on Letterman by poppadiddypuff New York (AP) — With the announcement that Stephen Colbert will be the new host of CBS' "Late Show," his fans likely feel a clash of emotions: — Happiness that their hero has landed a sweet promotion. — Regret that he's leaving his Comedy Central post. — Uncertainty over who the Stephen Colbert hosting "Late Show" will be. For nine years on "The Colbert Report," he has reigned as the founding father of Colbert Nation. He has won four Emmys, two Peabody awards and a stake in the national conversation. He hasn't just satirized politics and culture, he has rolled up his sleeves to organize a "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on Washington's National Mall with his Comedy Central colleague Jon Stewart, and to create a super Pac to draw attention to the tyranny of money on elections. And he has done it all behind a mask — the mask of "Stephen Colbert, »

Stephen Colbert’s Rise: From South Carolina to Second City to Pop Culture Player

10 April 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Stephen Colbert has made a career out of playing a bombastic conservative commentator, first on “The Daily Show” and for nearly 10 years on “The Colbert Report.”

But his next move, succeeding David Letterman on CBS’ “The Late Show,” might be the toughest assignment yet. Colbert’s comedy will no longer be guided by his faux personality, but his real one.

Earlier: Stephen Colbert to Replace David Letterman on ‘Late Show’

“Colbert Report’s” longevity has defied the odds and the skeptics who didn’t think the joke would remain funny week in and week out for an extended run. To the credit of Colbert and his team, they’ve been savvy about keeping it fresh with an eclectic mix of guests, performers, running gags (as elaborate as him running for President) and the occasional out-of-town stand.

The move to “The Late Show” will introduce America to the real Stephen Colbert, »
