Revealed: Bob Dylan's planned slapstick comedy series for HBO

12 November 2014 4:18 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

The songwriter apparently became obsessed with Jerry Lewis, prompting him to propose a slapstick comedy series to Seinfeld writer Larry Charles before dropping the idea just after being greenlit by HBO

It recently emerged that Bob Dylan once tried to start up a band featuring both the Beatles and the Stones. And now theres news of an equally half-baked endeavour: an attempt to make a slapstick comedy with celebrated Us TV network HBO.

According to Larry Charles, a one-time writer on Seinfeld who went on to direct Borat and Curb Your Enthusiasm, Dylan approached him back in the 90s for a meeting to discuss a potential slapstick comedy TV series, after getting deeply into Jerry Lewis.

'The Comeback': TV Review

9 November 2014 4:54 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Before Lisa Kudrow’s The Comeback aired on HBO in June of 2005, the channel had already run four full seasons of Larry David’s cringe-comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm. Ricky Gervais had already completed the entirety of The Office. And so, too, had the entire six-episode first season of the American remake of The Office aired on NBC. In short, what Kudrow and creator Michael Patrick King were doing with The Comeback is not, as so many people seem to think, being original. HBO aired 13 low-rated episodes of it and canceled it. For a reason. Read more Into the

‘The Comeback’ Review: HBO Parody Returns With Bigger, Edgier Laughs

7 November 2014 5:15 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Isn't it funny how time can make all the difference? Such is the case with HBO's reality TV spoof “The Comeback.” Nine years ago when the Lisa Kudrow-helmed comedy aired on the premium cable channel, it failed to find its footing and as a result, lasted a singular season. Blame it on low ratings, being ahead of its time or an unfair comparison to its time-slot neighbor, “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” but “The Comeback” never took off the way it should have. That will likely change when the second season debuts Sunday, nearly a decade after Kudrow's narcissistic but well-meaning character Valerie Cherish. »

Movie Review – Say When (2014)

6 November 2014 10:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Say When (a.k.a. Laggies), 2014

Directed by Lynn Shelton

Starring Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell, Mark Webber, Jeff Garlin, Gretchen Mol, Ellie Kemper, Eric Riedmann

Synopsis:

A woman in her late twenties experiences a quarter-age crisis, setting her off on a path to rediscover her youth and enthusiasm for life…

When do you know that you’re an adult? Is it when you have to pay for everything and realise few things are worth it, or, is it when you know you have to try a different approach?

Originally known as ‘Laggies‘ in the Us, this charming and intermittently insightful romantic comedy offers an amusing study of how it can feel when life feels likes it’s slipping you by. Featuring a likeable lead performance from Keira Knightley as the 28 year old ‘lagging’ behind her peers, the film is based around the idea that there is no »

Review: HBO's 'The Comeback' is as mortifying as ever 9 years later

5 November 2014 6:05 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There are TV shows I race through because I can't wait to see what happens next, and TV shows I pause frequently, either because I want to savor the experience or because I would really rather be doing anything else. And then there is "The Comeback," whose episodes take me twice as long to watch as anything else, good or bad, because I have to stop the action every few minutes just so I can clear my head, take a walk in nature, call my wife and do other feel-good activities in the hopes that when I press play, the latest mortification facing Lisa Kudrow's Valerie Cherish will have magically gone away. The mortification never goes away. Ever. "The Comeback" first aired on HBO back in 2005, during a fallow period when the channel kept trying ideas that didn't quite click — many of them about life in the entertainment industry. »

The Good Wife Recap: Questions Are for Dopes

3 November 2014 5:46 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

My threshold for secondhand awkwardness is very, very low (I have to watch inarguably mild scenes on The Office muted, with subtitles on, and can't watch shows like Curb Your Enthusiasm at all), so I found an episode of The Good Wife largely focused on Alicia's inability to ask and answer questions really difficult to watch. But my discomfort speaks to the quality of the episode — Julianna Margulies, David Hyde Pierce, and The Good Wife's writing team absolutely nailed the agony of awkward conversations.Alicia's partner in awkwardness is Frank Prady (played by Pierce), a CBS journalist who is, unsurprisingly, a total delight, all Panama hats and cookie tins and professorial facial hair. When Eli intuits that he's going to jump into the State's Attorney race, he sends Alicia to his dressing room to force his hand by asking him to endorse her. Awkwardly. Prady won't agree to endorse »

Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards Reunite in 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' Teaser

24 October 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Seinfeld is one of those shows that I think could have gone on for a lot longer than it did. But it had a great run and went out on top, and I can still enjoy watching all those episodes over and over again. Jerry Seinfeld and Michael Richards have reunited in this teaser clip for the upcoming season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. The last time I saw them together was in Curb Your Enthusiasm, when they did the Seinfeld reunion. It's great to see them together again, even if they aren't the characters that we came to know and love from the show.

In the clip, Richards plays Dick Corcoran, the president of Crackle.com, which is the online distributor of Seinfeld's amusing series. He goes off on a rant to Seinfeld about his concerns that Crackle is dead because of other streaming sites like Netflix and Hulu. »

David Hasselhoff on new Dave sitcom: 'Kumars meets Curb Your Enthusiasm'

24 October 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

David Hasselhoff has teased his upcoming new sitcom on Dave.

The Baywatch star will play a fictionalised version of himself in the new comedy series Hoff the Record.

"It's a fun and wacky show," he told Digital Spy. "I want to say it's The Kumars meets Curb Your Enthusiasm.

"It's really funny and goofy, but also intelligent. It's a real send-up. [In the show] I have five wives and I find out my son was actually born on the Berlin Wall the night it came down. It's just non-stop jokes."

Hasselhoff revealed that he had a very similar idea for the show before a team of producers invited him to a meeting.

"The funny part about this, was that I was approached by Me & You Productions who did The Ricky Gervais Show, and they pitched this show to me, the exact show I had in my head, on paper!
