The audience had a rousing good time and I know we are all looking forward to seeing what Kelsey comes up with this year.” Stevens said, ?Kelsey is the consummate entertainer ? between his sharp wit and archly-raised eyebrow, and his long history in this community on both sides of the camera, the show promises to be »

The Canadian teen pop megastar has conquered the music world, and now his life is to be the inspiration for a comedy. This could set a worrying precedent
Everyone, deep down, thinks that their life would make a brilliant sitcom. Taxi drivers do. Hairdressers do. Even I do, and I spend my entire life in a tiny room, stripped of all human contact, glumly tapping at a piece of failing machinery with my fingers until I fall asleep in my clothes. And we're all wrong. Our lives would make terrible sitcoms.
The only people who could ever successfully adapt their lives into a sitcom are either so relentlessly wacky that they will one day end up permanently alienating everyone they have ever loved, or rich enough to bend the world to meet their every demand. There's going to be a sitcom based on Justin Bieber's life. I don't know »

And thus begins our looks at films of note that will make their debuts at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival next January. And as he did last year, Tambay should be providing us with first-hand coverage of films and talents, which I'm sure will include this highly-anticipated one... Isaiah Washington stars as John Allen, and Tequan Richmond, best known for TV's Everybody Hates Chris, as Lee Boyd Malvo, in the appropriately titled Blue Caprice, directed by Alexandre Moors - the New York-based film, music-video and commercial director. You've likely seen some of his work, as he's directed videos for the likes »
"Go On" returns to NBC Tuesday (Nov. 13) after a two-week break -- and the first episode back is one of the best the series has done so far.
It's called "Videogame, Set, Match" and revolves heavily around the relationship between Ryan (Matthew Perry) and Owen (Tyler James Williams), who recognized each other as kindred spirits in their therapy group early on but haven't spent a ton of time together outside the group.
That changes when Ryan offers Owen an internship at his radio station -- a nice gesture that goes somewhat awry for the characters. It's a good thing for the audience, though, because Williams and Perry have very good comedic chemistry.
"It's been great," Williams ("Everybody Hates Chris") says of working with Perry. "The good thing is, the way it's written, we have a lot to play off of with each other. Owen and Ryan are I think [two] of »
In addition to the much-ballyhooed fourth season of Arrested Development, Deadline reports that Jason Bateman is solidifying his return to television by teaming with Up All Night executive producer DJ Nash to produce the single-camera sitcom Then Came Elvis, which they’ve recently sold to NBC. Loosely based on Nash’s life growing up in the 1980s, Then Came Elvis takes a Wonder Years (or, sure, Everybody Hates Chris) approach to tele-biography, using voiceover from the adult son character to provide perspective on his life in the wake of his parents’ divorce. That description doesn't do much to explain »
Since last we saw them, it appears that Arrested Development‘s Bluths have made some new friends.

Cee Lo Green may be going from coach to comedy star at NBC.
Green's third season as coach on hit singing competition "The Voice" kicks off next week, but the Grammy-winning singer and Renaissance man is also developing a multicamera comedy inspired by the way Green balances his professional life in the music industry and personal life at home with his family, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Green would play the lead role and executive produce alongside "Everybody Hates Chris" co-creator Ali Leroi, who will also write the script.
It's the latest move in Green's burgeoning acting career. He had a supporting role in the recent Jordin Sparks musical feature "Sparkle," voices Murray the Mummy in the upcoming animated comedy "Hotel Transylvania," and co-stars with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo in next year's "Can a Song Save Your Life?" In addition to pursuing acting, the ever-busy Green is also working on a book, »

Now that he’s conquered the competition reality show genre, Cee Lo Green is setting his sights on the network sitcom biz.
NBC will develop a comedy that is based, in part, on Green’s relationship with his ex-wife and kids. He would potentially star and executive produce the sitcom, while Ali Leroi (Everybody Hates Chris) would pen the script. Green would play a top recording artist in the sitcom, natch. But make note: This is in the early stages of development, Voice fans, so it’s unclear whether the show will even go to pilot.

Cee Lo Green a sitcom star? The Voice mentor is expanding his relationship with the network to the scripted side with a comedy project loosely based on his real-life relationship with his ex-wife and children.

A deal for the project at NBC is now in final negotiations. This would mark the TV acting debut for Green, who added actor to his resume with the feature Sparkle.

Tichina Arnold has tied the knot. The actress, who formerly starred on Martin and Everybody Hates Chris, wed Rico Hines on Aug. 18 in Honolulu, Hawaii, People confirms. "We decided to forego lots of the traditional elements such as a wedding cake and a white dress for me,” Arnold, who planned the event with Diann Valentine, tells Essence.com. "We both wanted a wedding that was reflective of our personalities and our normal everyday lifestyles - and that is good friends, good food and good fun." Seventy guests, including Arnold's 8-year-old daughter Alijah, witnessed the ceremony at Oasis Oceanfront Estate. "The »

Let It Shine is the latest in a string of Disney Channel musicals geared to America's pre-teens. The best way I can describe the movie is this way: if you are 12, you'll love it. The older you get, the less you may enjoy it.
At times a very entertaining musical with a good heart, the film suffers when it tries to cater to a young audience. This drama/musical is so over-Disneyfied that it borders on silly at times. »

Since Friends ended in 2004, Matthew Perry hasn't had the best of careers. The few movies he's been in have been forgettable, his ABC show Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip was cancelled after one season and his Fox show Mr. Sunshine was cancelled before it got a full season. Now he's returning to NBC for Go On. Could this be the show that finally wins over critics and audiences or will it go the same way as his last two efforts?
In Go On Matthew Perry stars as Ryan King, a sportscaster whose wife has recently died. After taking a brief period off from his job, he abruptly comes back to the surprise of everyone he works with. His boss (John Cho) tells him that he needs to take more time off and makes him go »
