Fox makes space for 'Boldly,' 'Glee'

11 December 2008 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fox's half-hour space comedy "Boldly Going Nowhere" and the hourlong musical comedy "Glee" appear close to series pickups.

That's the word from the network's screenings held Thursday and Friday.

As part of its split development season, Fox brass are viewing four pilots: the 20th TV-produced "Boldly," "Glee" and "Ernesto" and Ums/BermanBraun's "Virtuality."

The execs are said to be very high on "Boldly" -- which hails from the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" trio of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton -- and on Ryan Murphy's "Glee," whose cut-down 44-minute version of the pilot is being well received.

"Boldly" and "Glee" can go into production quickly because their pilot orders were accompanied by a pickup of additional scripts. With its setting at a high school glee club as well as musical numbers, "Glee" is being eyed for a post-"American Idol" slot.

Meanwhile, the Wilmer Valderrama-starring drama "Ernesto" is not expected to go forward. »

Two pilots add cast

25 November 2008 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jason Butler Harner has joined the cast of Showtime's drama pilot "Possible Side Effects."

Meanwhile, two recurring players on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia," David Hornsby and Artemis Pebdani, have been added to Fox's single-camera comedy pilot "Boldly Going Nowhere," from the "It's Always Sunny" trio of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton.

Tim Robbins' "Side Effects" revolves around the Hunt family, which runs a pharmaceutical firm.

Harner will play the middle son, Silas, peacekeeper and perhaps the only sane member of the clan.

Jason London originally was tapped for the role. The recasting was done after the table read for the pilot this week. Harner is repped by Endeavor.

"Nowhere," from 20th TV, is about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by the rogue Capt. Ron Teague (Ben Koldyke).

Hornsby will play Lt. Lance Grigsby, the captain's devoted right-hand man, who supports his most misguided »

Read This: Rejected 'Twilight' Script

24 November 2008 9:45 AM, PST | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

Here's something I bet you didn't know: Some of us who write for Cinematical also enjoy a variety of other similar gigs. Like, for example, Patrick Walsh (who used to write for us) now writes episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia ... and Scott Weinberg (who still writes for us) likes watching Philadelphia Eagles games for some odd reason when he's not contributing to this site. Then there's the fabulous Eric D. Snider, who, over on his personal site, has posted his rejected Twilight screenplay -- as in, the one Summit Entertainment didn't turn into a box office behemoth. You can check out the complete script over at Snider's site, but here are two snippets (read one below and one after the jump):

'Boldly Going Nowhere' Expands Cast

1 November 2008 6:42 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox's upcoming sitcom Boldly Going Nowhere has added two new actors to its growing cast. Lennon Parham will play the female lead alongside newcomer Chad L. Coleman. The two join Ben Koldyke, previously cast as the lead character Captain Ron Teague, and Tony Hale of Arrested Development as the ship's robot.

Boldly Going Nowhere is produced by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. The show focuses on the day-to-day events of an intergalactic spaceship. McElhenny, Day and Howerton do not consider the series as a science fiction, but rather a unique twist on the workplace sitcom. Wayne McClammy (I'm F--king Matt Damon) directs the pilot.

Parham, a newcomer from the Upright Citizens Brigade, plays Joyce, the ship's by-the-book pilot. McElhenney describes her as "a diamond in the rough," found only due to the recommendation of co-star Tony Hale. »

29 October 2008 8:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Following the casting of Ben Koldyke as the lead in Fox's comedy pilot "Boldly Going Nowhere," another unknown, Lennon Parham, has landed the top female role. Chad L. Coleman also is cast in the 20th TV-produced project.

"Nowhere," from the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" trio of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton, is about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by the rogue Capt. Ron Teague (Koldyke).

Parham will play Joyce, the ship's by-the-book pilot. Coleman will play Cobalt, the self-absorbed, intimidating head of security.

McElhenney admits that he and other co-creators had never heard of Upright Citizens Brigade performer Parham until Tony Hale, whom they cast in the pilot, suggested her.

"She was a diamond in the rough," McElhenney said. "Really, unbelievably funny."

Coleman comes from "The Wire," which "you wouldn't normally say it in the same sentence with a broadcast comedy, but we've been »

Rookie takes lead in Fox's 'Boldly'

21 October 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Fox is boldly going with a newcomer as the lead of one of its hottest comedy pilots.

After his first studio and network test, Ben Koldyke has landed the central role in "Boldly Going Nowhere," which also has tapped "Arrested Development" alum Tony Hale.

The high-concept comedy, from the "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" trio of Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton, is about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by a rogue captain (Koldyke).

Hale, repped by Icm and Framework, will play the ship's robot, who thinks he's superior to the human race. He next appears in the features "The Informant," "The Goods: The Don Ready Story" and "The Dream of the Romans."

Koldyke's casting stems from a chance meeting two years ago at the Rose Cafe in Venice, Calif., where "Philadelphia" creator-star McElhenney regularly had breakfast.

That day, instead of the check, McElhenney was given an anonymous note -- "Hey, »

McClammy Directing 'Boldly Going Nowhere'

6 October 2008 8:53 PM, PDT | Comicmix.com | See recent Comicmix news »

The director of almost softcore porn viral videos I'm F--king Matt Damon and I'm F--king Ben Affleck is set to tackle an all-new frontier: space.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wayne McClammy will direct Fox's single-camera comedy pilot Boldly Going Nowhere. The series is a "high-concept comedy is about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by a rogue captain." Sounds something like The Office in space.

Boldly Going Nowhere comes from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia masterminds Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton. McElhenney acknowledges McClammy's relative inexperience with studio projects, but still has full confidence in the director.

"He might not have a ton of experience, but he had a creative and specific vision for the look, the feel and the tone of the show and how he wants to shoot it," McElhenney said. "And he makes you laugh with what he's does."

Fox comedy lands director

5 October 2008 7:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Wayne McClammy, director of viral hits "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" and "I'm Fucking Ben Affleck," has been tapped to direct Fox's hot single-camera comedy pilot "Boldly Going Nowhere."

The high-concept comedy is about what happens day-to-day on an intergalactic spaceship helmed by a rogue captain. It's from "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" masterminds Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Glenn Howerton; their Rcg; 20th TV; and 3 Arts,

McClammy has no network experience, having only directed a couple of episodes of Comedy Central's "The Sarah Silverman Program" and segments for ABC's "The Jimmy Kimmel Show." And that's exactly what the "Sunny" trio -- themselves outsiders to the system who burst into the scene with their quirky FX series -- were looking for.

A VERY Special Episode of 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' (Very.)

18 September 2008 9:03 AM, PDT | Cinematical | See recent Cinematical news »

I know, I know: Why would Cinematical be writing a story about It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia? NO, there are no plans to turn this blisteringly funny little series into a movie -- at least none that I know of. I think I'll just extend the suspense a little longer...

Is it because yours truly was born and raised (and is currently seated in front of a computer) in Philadelphia? Despite the fact that this wonderful city gave us Rocky, The Sixth Sense, and Mannequin 2: On the Move -- the answer is no: We're not posting about It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia because it takes place in an awesome city. (Go Phils!)

OK, maybe I'm just blathering about the comedy series because, let's face it, Sunny is much funnier than most Hollywood comedies. It just is. But that's not the reason either. Here's why you're reading a TV story »
