"No Clue" Makes Its Case

22 July 2014 11:17 PM, PDT | JustPressPlay.net | See recent JustPressPlay news »

Where's everyone getting guns?  This is Canada!

If your last name is "Butt", then there's really only two things you can be: a cigarette filter manufacturer or a comedian.  Brent Butt took the latter route.  Stand-up comedy took him into television with two Canadian series, Corner Gas (2004-09) and Hiccups (2010-11), and a feature film, No Clue (2013), that is basically a 90-minute pilot for a detective sit-com.  It's a busy field especially and the light Canadian touch is certainly popular in American television at the moment.  Shows like Better off TedPushing Daisies, and Psych take the same gentle approach to laughs out of goofy awkwardness and verbal inanity as No Clue.  However, this Butt vehicle is a step above those shows by looking sleeker and pushing the jokes without winking at the audience.

TNT Considers a “Major Crime” Spin-Off and John Barrowman Wants a New “Arrow” Costume

News

For three seasons now, RuPaul’s Drag Race has announced its winner at a reunion special. Does that make it the best reality show with the worst finale? While I preferred the old way of announcing a winner, I don’t miss the “surprise” of seeing someone like Tyra Sanchez take the crown.

TVLine reports that TNT is developing a spin-off series of Major Crimes, one that sounds more like a spin-off of The Closer. The series will focus on Jon Tenney‘s Special Agent Fritz Howard. An episode in the upcoming season will set it up. TVLine says there’s also talk of a spin-off focusing on Malcolm-Jamal Warner‘s character from last season.

During the WGA strike a few years back, one break from reality TV I found was Corner Gas, a charming Canadian sitcom that found a home on Wgn. Now there’s a movie in »

Canadian sitcom Corner Gas for movie spin-off

20 May 2014 6:50 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Canadian sitcom Corner Gas is set to get a film spin-off.

The show, which ran for six seasons, was the top-rated sitcom in Canada with a record-breaking three million people watching the series finale in 2009.

The film already has funding from Canadian broadcaster Bell Media and film financier Telefilm Canada but is looking for an extra $100,000 from crowd sourcing to fund the spin-off.

Eric Peterson, Janet Wright, Gabrielle Miller, Fred Ewanuick, Lorne Cardinal, Tara Spencer-Nairn and Nancy Robertson are all set to return as their characters.

Writer and star of the show Brent Butt said of the 90-minute project: "I'm excited. The entire gang is back."

Picking up five years after the TV finale, residents of Dog River will discover their town has been mismanaged and they all have to move away.

CW Sets Summer Timeslots for ‘Backpackers,’ Other New Shows

17 April 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW is joining the comedy and magic club this summer.

The net, which throughout the year typically airs nine drama series as part of its 10-hour schedule, is experimenting with a pair of new half-hour comedies, “Backpackers” (originally a digital series) and “Seed,” as well as magic series “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” and “Masters of Illusion,” as part of its summer lineup.

CW kicks off its summer June 2 with improv comedy “Whose Line Is It Anyway” on a new night; each week, an original episode will be followed by a repeat. Original episodes of sophomore drama “Beauty and the Beast” will air from 9 to 10.

Reality docuseries “Famous in 12″ bows the next night, airing from 8 to 9. It’s an unscripted series/social experiment that will film one fame-seeking family around the clock for 12 weeks straight.  The family will be guided by the TMZ machine, which will create a series of opportunities for them. »
