Check out the brand new poster for This Is Where I Leave You.
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
The dramatic comedy is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (“Arrested Development »

If you’re a human being, you probably don’t watch Community. The show’s audience is engaged, empowered, and one-sixth the size of the audience accidentally watching whatever’s on after The Big Bang Theory. And I know why you don’t watch. Even by the standards of low- rated cause-célèbre wonder shows, Community is hard to like. The lead characters are pricks, lunatics, deluded mock-intellectuals, and self-important gasbags. The most likable »

L.A.-area dealers, beware: Tony Hale will not pay for his drugs.
That’s one of the many takeaways from “Comedians in Cars Getting Cocaine,” The Soup’s Joel McHale-hosted spoof of Jerry Seinfeld’s friendlier, Coffee-ier web series. The video shows the cult-sitcom star picking up the, um, other cult-sitcom star for a nice top-down ride around Southern California. They discuss Arrested Development, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and how Tony Hale likes to numb away his shameful past with the power of cocaine.
Funny stuff! And hey, it’s not a bad day for an on-point homage to Jerry »

Not even Inspector Spacetime might have imagined the alternate universe in which this would take place: "Community," the cult-fave NBC comedy that survived five seasons of low ratings, the firing (and re-hiring) of its creator, and the departures of two major cast members, is also going to survive its cancellation by the broadcast network -- it'll be resurrected for a sixth season (and maybe more?) online at Yahoo Screen.
"Community" isn't the first show to find new life on the Internet, but its salvation by Yahoo is unique in a number of respects. Unlike "Arrested Development" -- which Netflix revived for one reunion season many years after its network TV cancellation by Fox -- "Community" will barely miss a beat, picking up right where it left off with the Season 5 cast intact and no older. (Yahoo reportedly picked up the actors' contracts on Monday, just hours before they were set to expire, »

After tapping two new VPs and a Director of Development in April, Hollywood-based TV and film production company Dakota Films has promoted Tally Barr to Evp Development and Production. Barr has more than a decade in comedy, animation, unscripted, and shortform production with credits including Celebrity Deathmatch, Brand X With Russell Brand, Status Updates, Popzilla, the Emmy Awards and the MTV Movie Awards under her belt. She recently served as associate producer on Arrested Development on Netflix and is supervising producer on Dakota’s Deadbeat for Hulu. »
Earlier this week, a former NBC sitcom made headlines by improbably returning from the dead, thanks to a website most people didn't even know was in the streaming video business. But the story of how "Community" will live again on Yahoo isn't nearly as far-fetched as the tale of another NBC Thursday sitcom, which few of the executives at the network understood, which was considered too weird and self-referential to ever succeed, and which — unlike "Community," the little cult engine that could — actually turned into the most popular show on television. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Let's look back at some of the key markers on the road from when NBC premiered a pilot called "The Seinfeld Chronicles" — 25 years ago this Saturday, in fact — to when the show that became "Seinfeld" turned into a pop culture-altering smash: * On July 5, 1989, NBC aired "The Seinfeld Chronicles" pilot, starring Jerry Seinfeld, »

On June 30th, mere hours before the cast’s contracts were up, fans all but assumed that the show would officially end at the cusp of its much proclaimed #SixSeasonsandaMovie goal. The goal, which began as a joke in Season 2′s episode Paradigms of Human Memory and grew into a social media staple, became more and more tangible as the series moved through its third, fourth, and fifth season. After years of narrow ratings, however, NBC formally ended the show, clearing it from its fall programming.
Through the rise in online streaming sites such as Netflix and Hulu, fans had hoped for an online revival akin to Netflix’s licensing of Arrested Development. Sadly, Hulu, which had previously streamed episodes of Community, declined the offer to produce future episodes. With the deadline approaching and fewer outlets emerging in discussion, Community was all but finished in the darkest timeline.
Until Yahoo. »

Seth Gordon’s Horrible Bosses, starring Jason Bateman (Arrested Development), Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), and Jason Sudekis (We’re the Millers), was one of the biggest surprises of 2011, both critically and financially. While the film didn’t quite reach unanimous acclaim, it was well received and grossed $209 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing black comedy of all time. Considering the film’s budget was $35 million, it came as no surprise when Warner Bros. quickly put a sequel into production.
Horrible Bosses 2 hits theaters on November 26th, and reunites the trio of stars, who decide to become their own bosses this time and start their own business. But when a slick investor (Django Unchained‘s Christoph Waltz) pulls the rug out from under them, they hatch a misguided plan to kidnap his adult son (Star Trek‘s Chris Pine) and ransom him in order to regain control of their company. »

Here’s to some more time in a dream. Community was picked up by Yahoo Screen yesterday, rescued from cancellation after its original home, NBC, declined to give it a sixth season. Dan Harmon is back and so is the cast, whose contracts were set to expire Monday night.
Yahoo’s 13-episode order puts the show that much closer to fulfilling its fans’ perpetually hashtagged mantra—#sixseasonsandamovie, a quote from Abed’s season-two love of NBC’s now-cancelled The Cape. But even as it’s time to pull out the old hashtag (and invent new ones—#sevenseasonsandasearchengine, anyone?), Community’s »

Community fans can rejoice, because operation #SixSeasonsAndAMovie is still alive. Yahoo has announced that it has picked up the cancelled NBC comedy for a 13-episode sixth season, which will air exclusively on Yahoo Screen. Community was seen as a strong candidate for online renewal as soon as NBC axed it on May 11th. Inquiring minds first turned to Netflix, in hopes that the platform responsible for the Arrested Development reboot would do the same for Community; however, Netflix immediately stated that it would not host a sixth season. A few weeks later, rumors began to circulate that Hulu would claim Community's sixth season, since the show's episodes consistently ranked among that site's most popular. Two weeks later, it was Community creator Dan Harmon who shot down the Hulu rumor, explaining that he was "pessimistic" about the possibility of a sixth season. Enter Yahoo Screen.

Holy cow, boys and girls: "Community" has been renewed, after all. The dream of six seasons and a movie is still alive — thanks to Yahoo, of all places, which closed a deal for an additional season of the cult NBC comedy. The deal closed on the last day it realistically could, since the actors would all be released from their contracts at midnight tonight. The new season, comprised of 13 episodes, will debut this fall. Creator Dan Harmon and producer Chris McKenna, who returned to the show for season 5 after a year away, will stick around. The regular cast from the end of last season — Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Yvette Nicole Brown, Alison Brie, Danny Pudi, Ken Jeong and Jim Rash — will all return. Donald Glover left midway through last season, and Jonathan Banks (who was a guest star for most of season 5) will be otherwise occupied with AMC's "Better Call Saul. »

After reigniting his career with "Arrested Development," Jason Bateman has pivoted toward being a filmmaker. Earlier this year he dropped his foul mouthed feature directorial debut "Bad Words," and he's already set to direct "The Family Fang" starring Nicole Kidman. And another project is coming that will find him both behind and in front of the camera. Over at Universal, Bateman has signed up to direct and star in "an FBI-themed wedding comedy." David Bar Katz penned the screenplay, and the reason this sentence is ending so soon, is that plot details have not been released. [La Times] "Jurassic World" got a bit bigger, adding James Dumont to the cast of Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio and Irrfan Khan. He'll be playing "Corporal Dooley, a Uso envoy" in the Colin Trevorrow directed movie. [THR] Famke Janssen and AnnaSophia Robb will lead "Jack Of The Red Hearts." The indie drama follows »

David Wain and Michael Showalter make a great team. Their respective approaches to comedy complement each other perfectly, creating projects that capture the hearts of the audience, and cling on – like stubborn limpets – until the end of time. One such project is Wet Hot American Summer. A box office disappointment on its release in 2001, it became something of a cult classic soon after, commanding strident loyalty among its fans. Those fans have longed to re-visit Camp Firewood, ever since they discovered the film, and their vociferous nagging was recently rewarded with the news that a prequel would be coming to Netflix.
“We’re talking about doing Wet Hot American Summer now as a Netflix series. So we have an outline, but »

Following in the footsteps of the cult favorite television series Arrested Development, which got a fourth season that debuted on Netflix last year, it was reported that the streaming service would be resurrecting David Wain and Michael Showalter’s cult film, Wet Hot American Summer. The 10-episode season will act as a prequel to the original movie and will be executive produced by Wain and Showalter, who are also planning to return as writers.
Wet Hot American Summer starred a laundry list of well-known comedy actors and actresses: Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Janeane Garofalo, Michael Ian Black, Molly Shannon, Bradley Cooper, and Christopher Meloni (just to name a few). Much of the original ...

Many Emmy categories, such as Best Drama Actress, are so overcrowded this year that we wonder which contenders will be left out, but not Best Comedy Actor, which has plenty of space available. There will certainly be fresh faces in this race. The trouble is figuring out who they will be. -Break- What happens when co-stars compete in same category at Emmys? [Photo Gallery] Two of last year's six nominees are out of the running this time around -- Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development") and Alec Baldwin ("30 Rock") -- but the other four are eligible again: Louis C.K. ("Louie"), Don Cheadle ("House of Lies"), Matt LeBlanc ("Episodes"), and winner Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory"). For the sake of argument, let's assume all four of them are guaranteed to return. Let's even assume this year's Golden Globe champ Andy Samberg ("Brooklyn Nine-Nine") is a safe bet for a bid. - »
