It was in those halcyon days of 2010 when Judd Apatow announced he’d be producing a new Pee-Wee Herman movie. Nearly five years later, its possible that the Paul Reubens and Paul Rust co-written film will be released via Netflix. That’s right folks, The Wrap is reporting that the as yet untitled Pee-Wee Herman movie is close to making a deal with the streaming giant, solidifying its stature as a worthy foe for studios and TV networks. A new Pee-Wee movie makes perfect sense for Netflix, which in recent years has revived shows like “Arrested Development” and “The Killing.” And more recently, the company has moved heavily into original film content, signing a four-picture deal with Adam Sandler, acquiring documentaries for streaming release (such as "The Battered Bastards Of Baseballs"), and throwing their weight behind the martial arts sequel "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green »

Continuing its swift domination of the world’s collective free time, Netflix is apparently moving ahead with a miniseries that will serve as a follow-up to David Wain’s beloved 2001 cult comedy Wet Hot American Summer. E! News reports that the series, which will either be a prequel or a sequel to the original film, is set to begin production this January.
Wet Hot American Summer, though hardly seen at the time of its release, starred a ridiculous number of actors who would go on to become comedy A-listers, including Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper and Elizabeth Banks. One would imagine that most or all of the cast members would return for this series, though none of them have yet been confirmed (Netflix also has yet to comment).

Netflix has two bona fide original series hits on its hands with House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black, but the streaming service is also very much in the business of “adapting” existing IP. Netflix gave us the fourth season of Arrested Development, it premiered the fourth and final season of The Killing, and it’s also home to the sixth season of The Clone Wars. While it continues to develop its own original programming in-house (including The Wachowski Siblings’ Sense8 and a slate of Marvel shows), it appears that Netflix is set to continue another existing property: Wet Hot American Summer. We heard earlier this year that discussions were taking place to produce a TV series continuation of David Wain’s star-studded 2001 cult comedy, and now word comes that Netflix is indeed moving forward with a sequel miniseries. More after the jump. The folks over at E! »

The third season of HBO’s Girls is very much one of renewal and reinvention. Characters who find themselves at highs or in happy situations at the end of the previous season are quickly brought low, while others are finally free to soar as the season goes on. Coming off of the high of season two’s over-the-top (but nonetheless touching) finale, season three has the thankless job of bringing everyone back to reality. Charlie and Marnie are broken up, Ray and Shoshanna are broken up, and Hannah and Adam are seeing that their reconcilliation may be more short-lived than they imagined. Meanwhile, Jessa has finally reached the bottom of the barrel and is no longer free to live her indulgent and presumptuous lifestyle.
Life has a way of complicating things and so do the people in our lives, and further still, so do we, ourselves. What has always »
Disney-owned network ABC Family has ordered a docu-series about a family whose father, Charlie, is divorcing the mother to transition into life as a woman named Carly. The show, My Transparent Life – whose title not so subtly alludes to the Amazon Instant series Transparent – will also focus on the couple's teenage son, Ben. Ryan Seacrest Productions, which makes the family reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is handling the series' development, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"At Rsp, we love family stories, and we couldn't be more excited that »
Part of Arrested Development‘s legacy comes from the people Mitch Hurwitz and company were able to get appear on it through four seasons (but particularly the first three, before Ad was revived by Netflix and became a cameo-fest). Here are six of the show’s most memorable guest stars (not named Julia Louis-Dreyfus, of course): Ben Stiller (Tony Wonder) The reviews on Arrested Development‘s fourth season may have been mixed – but it seemed everyone enjoyed the return of Tony Wonder, who ends up in a game of chicken with Gob that neither man can escape (“Same…” “Same!!!”; also “I’m here, I’m queer… now I’m over here!”). Introduced in season two as Gob’s magician nemesis (when Tony appears on the cover of Poof magazine), Tony Wonder’s series of “illusions” are a great compliment to Gob’s own ‘magic’ show – plus when the two »

Amazon's Transparent received two Golden Globe nominations on Thursday, and Et special correspondent Janet Mock sat down with the show's star, Jeffrey Tambor, to discuss how the series is breaking ground in entertainment.
Jeffrey was honored to sit down with Janet, who is a New York Times best-selling transgender author for her book Redefining Realness. He was equally humbled to be playing the role of a trans woman on the streaming series.
2015 Golden Globes: And the Nominees Are...
"The honor of being able to play Maura is transformative," Jeffrey told Janet in his Et interview. "I'm 70 years old. I should be in a reading room, reading Dickens or something."
While the show racks up accolades (it was nominated for Golden Globes for Best TV Series, Comedy and Best Performance by an Actor in a TV Series, Comedy for Tambor's impressive turn) not everyone is quick to accept the notion of a non-trans actor playing a trans character »

Right. We’ll wrap things up there. Things to take away from today’s nominations:
Peter Bradshaw has file his thoughts on the Globes. Here’s a snippet:
It’s the Globes! Hardly any institution has benefitted more from the rise of the awards-season and the predominance of celebrity culture. Once mocked for being the rackety and faintly preposterous creation of Hollywood’s grandly-titled Foreign Press Association, the Globes is now not just a curtain-raiser for the Oscars, but an event which visibly luxuriates in being »

Aside from the occasional plot detail and set image, Marvel has been keeping details on Ant-Man on the down low, especially concerning the roles its actors are playing. Sure, it.s great that we know who all the main players are, like Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, but c.mon, Marvel! Throw us a bone on some of the supporting cast! Fortunately, we can scratch one of those mystery roles off the list. After months of staying quiet, Arrested Development actress Judy Greer has spilled the beans on who she.ll be playing in the 2015 blockbuster. While talking with HeyUGuys.com about her new movie Men, Women and Children, Greer revealed that she will be playing Scott Lang.s ex-wife in Ant-Man - though she was wary to say anything else. Said the actress: "I.m Paul Rudd.s estranged ex-wife. We have a »
Judy Greer just told Marvel to "Say Goodbye To" the secrecy surrounding her role in their upcoming Ant-Man. In an interview with HeyUGuys, the actress spoke candidly about her experience working with Marvel Studios, and what we can expect from her role in Ant-Man, which stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas.
On how exciting it is to be working with Marvel:
"It really is, and the energy is so electric on set. After Guardians, which I loved, and I’m friends with James Gunn and I’m so happy he did that movie and killed it, everyone is in such a good mood at work."
On who she'll actually be playing in Ant-Man:
"I’m Paul Rudd’s estranged ex-wife. We have a daughter together and our relationship is, well, estranged, but I feel like my character is still rooting for him to succeed. »

After just a dozen days we’re back in comedy sequel land! Mid November saw the return of Harry and Lloyd after 20 years in Dumb And Dumber To, which grossed (accent on gross) enough to shoot to number one at the box office for that weekend. Now, this film’s trio hasn’t been away for two decades, merely three years. But it was a surprise flick that came out of left field to quickly become a fan favorite (especially on premium cable and home video). As opposed to the Farrelly brothers’ duo, these guys aren’t really kid friendly. It, and this follow-up, truly earn their R ratings (for raunchy and rude). Now, could their outrageousness become deluted by a another visit, just as with the Hangover best buds? I’m happy to report that has not happened with return of those 2011 foul-ups in Horrible Bosses 2.

Jason Bateman would love to return to 'Arrested Development' to be back with his ''beloved'' Will Arnett. The 45-year-old actor - who has been married to Amanda Anka since 2001 - is keen to reprise his role as Michael Bluth in the Us sitcom so he can see the 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' actor on a daily basis once again. He said: ''Times were sweet when I could start my days with him and end my days with him on 'Arrested Development', you know. ''I'd get to work while the sun was still down and I'd get home after the sun's down. I'm with him all day, I didn't even see my ... you know ... the beard [his wife]. I'd leave before the beard gets up. ''So more 'Arrested Development' would be great, just so I could be back with my beloved.'' Jason - who has daughters Francesca, eight, »
Jennifer Aniston is known for being one of our favorite Friends and a sex-crazed dentist in the Horrible Bosses movies, but it's her dark turn as chronic pain-sufferer Claire Bennett in Cake that's garnering her early Oscar buzz. Aniston, 45, was committed to everything about the role from the first time she sat down with the film's director, Daniel Barnz. "I said to him, 'I have a whole plan.' And he allowed me to go where I wanted to go, and we were together every step of the way," she told the audience during a Q&A following the American Cinematheque screening of Cake, »
