America Ferrera returns to television as the star and producer in NBC’s mid-season replacement "Superstore," a workplace comedy. The make-up of the cast is reminiscent of "The Office’s" employees which is no accident since Justin Spitzer, the co-executive producer and writer from "The Office’" is now serving as "Superstore’s" executive producer. Ferrera spoke about her return to television at a Los Angeles press conference with the cast and executive producer on the NBC/ Universal backlot.

This story first appeared in a special awards season issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. If you glance back at reviews of Ricky Gervais' three-year stint as Golden Globes host, you see a lot of heightened rhetoric about the British comedian's "blistering," "scathing" "insurrection" — about how the co-creator and star of the U.K. original of The Office "went too far," made things "uncomfortable" and "bit the hand that fed him." And fed him. And fed him. And then took a three-year break. And fed him again. The Myth of Ricky Gervais, courageous

Casting and chemistry can, occasionally, trump concept. So NBC’s big-box-store development approach receives an unexpected (and slightly ironic) infusion of energy from “Superstore,” thanks largely to America Ferrera and Ben Feldman as its adorable, meant-for-each-other leads. While much of this is familiar – and even echoes that “People of Walmart” Web meme – the show comes closer to approximating the desired mix of sweetness and silliness than most of the network’s workplace series have since “The Office.” Receiving an early preview behind “The Voice,” “Superstore” returns in January with the also-ok “Telenovela,” offering a pretty good comedy hour, at reasonable prices.
Despite a single-camera format, “Superstore” only once ventures beyond the parking lot of the fictional wholesaler, Cloud 9, during the four episodes previewed. The premiere introduces Jonah (“Mad Men’s” Feldman, last seen on NBC in the short-lived romantic comedy “A to Z”), who immediately antagonizes the level-headed Amy »

Chicago – He may be Dwight Schrute of “The Office” forever in reruns, but he is also – according to his new memoir – “The Bassoon King.” Rainn Dietrich Wilson created the offbeat Schrute, and has had a diverse and high profile career. He was at the Yellow Box Theater in Naperville, Ill., recently, being interview by Chicago artist Tony Fitzpatrick, in an event sponsored by Anderson’s Bookshop.
Born in Seattle, Washington, Wilson’s family moved to the Chicago area during his high school years, and he attended New Trier High in Winnetka, Ill. He began his career after college in New York City, and made his on-screen acting debut in the soap opera “One Life to Live” in 1997, followed closely by his film debut in “Galaxy Quest” in 1999. He worked steadily in TV and film before landing the role »

Adult Swim has green-lit Dream Corp, LLC, a new animated series from creator Daniel Stessen, who made an acclaimed animated short called The Gold Sparrow. John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant, who first worked together on the U.S. version of The Office, are serving as executive producers alongside Allyson Seeger, Krasinski's Sunday Night Productions partner. The comedy will follow the "absent-minded" Dr. Roberts (voiced by Jon Gries) and his team of lackluster analysts at a neglected dream-therapy facility as they treat a rotating cast of "desperate" patients. A pilot for Dream Corp was originally ordered in 2014, and it will be the first of Adult Swim's series to use rotoscope technology, the process by which live-action footage is traced over, frame by frame. The show will begin production in Los Angeles later this year. »

Stars Elijah Wood, Rainn Wilson and Alison Pill can't keep a straight face in our exclusive gag reel for Cooties. This indie horror comedy is currently available through VOD formats before arriving on Blu-ray and DVD December 1. This behind-the-scenes clip features Elijah Wood cracking up, jokingly calling this production "a comedy of errors," while Alison Pill stumbles on the set and Rainn Wilson inadvertently looks at the camera, making a joke about his time on NBC's The Office.
School lunches will forever be tainted after the disturbing and hilarious Cooties arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital) and Digital HD December 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. The "funny, gory and brilliant" (dallasmoviescreenings.com) film is currently available On Demand.

Of all the current century’s most cataclysmic world-historical events, the 2008 financial crisis is probably among the most poorly understood. Filmmakers looking to rectify this have already approached the story from a number of angles, from sober-minded documentary (“Inside Job”) to operatic boiler-room drama (“Margin Call”), but the route taken by “The Big Short” is by far the most radical, turning a dense economics lecture into a hyper-caffeinated postmodern farce, a spinach smoothie skillfully disguised as junk food. Taking style cues from hip-hop videos, Funny or Die clips and “The Office,” Adam McKay’s film hits its share of sour notes; some important plot points are nearly impossible for laypeople to decipher even with cheeky, fourth-wall-obliterating tutorials, and the combination of eye-crossing subject matter and nontraditional structure makes it a risky bet at the box office. But there’s an unmistakable, scathing sense of outrage behind the whole endeavor, and »

Social media is filled with complaints about retailers jumping the gun on Christmas. Hey the jack-o-lantern’s not yet ripe when the tinsel and wreaths go on sale. Well at least this inspired one of the great double holiday flicks, The Nightmare Before Christmas. So, if the mall starts early, why not the attached (usually) multiplex theatres. Hollywood loves sending out movies at the end of the year set around the staples of the season. So, before you even think about grabbing the turkey (let’s not get ahead of this piece) for Thanksgiving, here’s a flick about a big, big family getting things set for the big Christmas Eve shindig. Now Mom’s a perfectionist, so everything has to be plotted out and just right. Of course, like most families, things are far from perfect. Doesn’t mean they can’t try their darndest in the new star-packed cinema stocking, »

Aside from championing cringe comedy and cursing the world with “that's what she said,” one of the The Office's early trademarks was its theme song, which, let's be honest, you're probably tapping out on your laptop right now. But according to Rainn Wilson's memoir The Bassoon King, the show almost went with a few other choices. “Many songs were being considered seriously, including ‘Better Things’ by the Kinks and ‘Float On’ by Modest Mouse,” the man behind Dwight Schrute writes. “The one we all wanted most of all was ‘Mr. Blue Sky’ by Electric Light Orchestra. It’s a sensational song and its jubilant, upbeat refrain would have fit perfectly over the drab video of the opening credits.” For better or for worse — let's be honest, for better — “Mr. Blue Sky” was taken by Lax, another member of NBC's 2005 TV class. The show ended up with its now-famous »
