According to reports, Amy Schumer is in talks to star in a live-action adaptation of Barbie for Sony Pictures. While the negotiations are early and nothing is confirmed, Variety states that the picture is quickly coming together.

Currently, the idea and screenplay came from Hilary Winston (Community, My Name is Earl). However, according to Variety, if Schumer decides to star in the project, she and her sister and writing partner, Kim Caramele, will give the script a new draft.

The comedian and actress is the somewhat inspired to choice to lead the toy movie, that will be penned by sibling writers Hilary Winston (“The Lego Ninjago Movie,” “My Name Is Earl“) and Kim Caramele (who has worked with Schumer, as a producer on “Trainwreck,” and producer/writer on “Inside Amy Schumer“).

As we stand on the precipice of December, chatter of New Year Resolutions is beginning to take hold, particularly for those coming off a weekend of Thanksgiving-themed indulgence. Netflix is no exception, as the online streaming giant has today vowed to begin its Santa Clarita Diet on February 3, 2017.
Word comes by way of Entertainment Weekly, revealing that the original single-camera sitcom, one which stars Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in lead roles, has now been earmarked for a February premiere.

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.
The actor: Since breaking into the business as a teenager in the mid-’90s, Ethan Suplee’s cultivated a remarkably diverse career. After stepping toe-to-toe with Cory Matthews and Shawn Hunter as lovable lug Frankie Stechino on Boy Meets World, Suplee found an artistic home in Kevin Smith’s View Askew universe.

In the era of peak TV, there’s no single path to becoming a showrunner.
Writers used to work their way up through a system and patiently wait their turn to run their own show. But the proliferation of outlets, increasing demand for bold content, and opportunities to scale a show to specific creative needs have combined to open the door for showrunners of various backgrounds and experience levels.
Six freshman series from the past year made Variety’s TV Producers Impact List with first-time showrunners at the helm: Showtime’s “Billions,” NBC’s “The Carmichael Show,” The CW’s “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” Netflix’s “Master of None,” Hulu’s “The Path,” and Wgn’s “Underground.” The only common link among the six is that they don’t conform to traditional notions of TV.
