Rob Corddry Debuts ‘Childrens’ Hospital’ on TheWB All at Once

7 December 2008 11:36 PM, PST | Tilzy.tv | See recent Tilzy.TV news »

Childrens’ Hospital Is the best web series. Ever. There, I said it. It was predicted right here and let me tell you, this tidal wave of genius has no problem living up to all that hype. This show gives the McSteamys and McDreamys all a collective punch in their McPlace-where-their-catheters-go. This might be the best piece of comedy I’ve seen, in any format, all year. It’s not surprising, really. Childrens’ Hospital has one hell of a pedigree. It is produced for TheWB.com by Rob Corddry, David Wain and Jonathan Stern. I don’t even know if these guys need an intro anymore. But I’ll break it down for you last remaining comedy neophytes out there. Corddry is possibly the best Daily Show correspondent ever (next to Carell and Colbert). He was the star of the short lived sit-com, The Winner, and recently had scene stealing turns »

Worst Week: CBS Pulls Low-rated Sitcom for One Week, Good News for Gary Unmarried

23 October 2008 9:18 PM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's no big surprise that CBS is considering making a change to its Monday night line-up. Though Worst Week was hailed by critics as the best new sitcom of the season (not that there's much competition for that title), the public doesn't agree.

Worst Week debuted on September 22nd on CBS. The quirky, single-camera sitcom follows unlucky Sam (Kyle Bornheimer) as he tries to make a good impression on the family of his pregnant fiancé. The series, a remake of a UK sitcom, also stars Erinn Hayes (The Winner), Nancy Lenehan (Grace Under Fire), and Kurtwood Smith (That '70s Show).

The sitcom premiered in the plum spot following CBS' most-watched sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Unfortunately, Week doesn't seem to be a good fit. The show debuted to 9.3 million viewers and a 3.1/7 rating/share in the 18-49 demographic. It was nearly tied for second place in viewers (with the »

Beverly Hills, 90210: More Spin-off Casting, Another Original Castmember's Interested

3 May 2008 11:24 AM, PDT | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The 90210 zip code is really filling up with new residents as casting is in full swing for the CW's Beverly Hills, 90210 spin-off.

Former Arrested Development matriarch Jessica Walter has signed on to play Tabitha Mills. Tabitha is an aging Hollywood star whose alcohol issues are the reason that her son, Harry, and his family relocate from Kansas to Beverly Hills.

The Wire's Tristan Wilds has been cast in the lead role of Dixon Mills. He's the adopted son of the Mills family who's bright but has his share of emotional baggage.

Jessica Stroup, previously seen on CW's Reaper as the devil's (maybe) daughter, has been cast as Silver. She's the ambitious best friend of new girl Annie Mills (Shenae Grimes) and who is likely some relation to David Silver (Brian Austin Green) from the original series.

Michael Steger (The Winner) will portray Navid, a consummate student politician and the »

30 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

UPDATED 7:14 p.m. PT March 31, 2008

Diablo Cody's comedy pilot "The United States of Tara" is moving closer to a series order at Showtime with the hire of writer-producer Alexa Junge.

Additionally, Portia Doubleday and Keir Gilchrist have joined the cast of the DreamWorks TV-produced pilot, which stars Toni Collette as Tara, a wife and mother with multiple-personality syndrome.

Junge has been tapped to serve as executive producer should the single-camera project get a series pickup. She would exec produce alongside Cody, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.

Junge was a supervising producer on NBC's "The West Wing" and co-exec producer on "Friends". She is repped by WMA, manager Ann Blanchard at Mosaic Media Group and attorney Michael Gendler.

Production on the pilot for "Tara", which Craig Gillespie is directing, will begin in April in Los Angeles.

Newcomer Doubleday and Gilchrist (Fox's "The Winner") will play Tara's teens. John Corbett recently was cast as her husband.

Gilchrist is repped by ICM, Thruline and Amanda Rosenthal in Canada. Doubleday is repped by IFA Talent Agency. »

CBS orders comedy pilot 'Millionaire'

4 March 2008 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

CBS has picked up Single White Millionaire, a comedy pilot from The Winner creator Ricky Blitt.

The multicamera comedy, which has received a cast-contingent order, centers on an unassuming millionaire in his thirties who is ready to settle down.

Warner Bros. Television is producing Millionaire, which was written on spec.

Family Guy alum Blitt most recently collaborated with "Guy" creator Seth MacFarlane on Fox's comedy series Winner, which starred Rob Corddry as a successful fortysomething man who looks back at the time when he was a 32-year-old slacker living with his parents.

The pickup for Millionaire follows CBS' pilot orders last week of the dramas The Mentalist, Ny-Lon, Mythological X and Can Openers. »
