10 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Booth Colman, who had a long career as an actor including the role of ape scientist Dr. Zaius in the 1970s “Planet of the Apes” TV series, died in his sleep on Dec. 15 in Los Angeles. He was 91.

NBC’s Crisis of Comedic Identity In The Post-Parks and Recreation Age

12 December 2014 6:05 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

The last ten years have been rough for NBC’s once-famous comedy line-up: although 30 Rock, The Office, and early seasons of Scrubs were able to help soften the blow of Friends and Frasier‘s departure in 2004, recent years have only seen failure after failure make it to air. Even shows with passionate fan bases like Community and My Name is Earl struggled to keep their shows on the air – and more importantly, never enjoyed enough mainstream success to keep NBC heavily invested in them. Parks and Recreation has an interesting history within NBC’s larger post-Golden Age story: nearly cancelled after its first season, Parks and Recreation has enjoyed just enough success to keep it on air for seven seasons. In the process, Amy Poehler became one of America’s sweethearts, Chris Pratt became a legit movie star, Nick Offerman became a cultural landstone, and Aubrey Plaza and Rashida Jones »

30 years since Gremlins: Stars of the Christmas cult classic then and now

9 December 2014 9:15 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without a heavily tinseled tree, a tipple before midday and Gremlins on the telly at some point during the day.

The Joe Dante-directed black cult comedy sees protagonist Billy Peltzer being gifted with Gizmo, a cute furry Mogwai discovered by his inventor father in a mysterious Chinatown antique store.

Of course the creature comes with three special instructions which, if not adhered to, result in the spawning of grizzly Gremlins hell-bent on havoc.

The Steven Spielberg-produced movie - which is

currently being fast-tracked by Warner Bros for a remake - celebrated its 30th anniversary earlier this year, and here's what the main cast members got up to after the movie's success:

Zach Galligan plays William 'Billy' Peltzer who becomes enthralled by his unusual Christmas gift - yet careless with the three golden Gizmo rules.

Scrotal Recall: don't be put off by the title

30 September 2014 9:15 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Underneath its laddish title is a new comedy with a surprising amount of heart. Here's our preview of Channel 4's Scrotal Recall...

Channel 4's latest, arrestingly titled, comedy series begins with a rude awakening. Dylan Witter has tested positive for chlamydia and he doesn't know from whom he contracted it. Along with his lothario best friend Luke, he must build up the courage to contact all of his sexual partners and inform them. You could see it as a new take on My Name Is Earl but with STDs instead of karma.

Let's deal with the elephant in the room here. There are going to be a lot of people taking one look at the name and possibly writing this series off based on that alone. It's obviously going to be the first question I asked series creator and writer, Tom Edge. "It was kind of a joke for the producers. »
