Pop will soon have new programming taken straight from Rainn Wilson’s YouTube channel SoulPancake. The cable network previously known as TV Guide Network has picked up the Impress Me web series for distribution on Pop’s linear TV channel.
Created by Ben Shelton, Impress Me follows Ross Marquand (The Walking Dead, Mad Men) and Jim Meskimen (Parks and Recreation) in a fictional setting as they try to transition from celebrity impressionists to serious actors. Future guest stars will include well-known faces such as Angela Kinsey, Josh Groban, and “Weird Al” Yankovic.
Pop will release the six episodes of Impress Me which previously debuted on SoulPancake, along with seven entirely new, never-seen episodes. The show will be released after the time slot currently occupied by Pop’s first original scripted series Schitt’s Creek, acquired from Canada’s CBC network.

With Mad Men beginning its final spate of episodes on April 5, cast members have been reliving their characters’ antics over the past seven seasons. And none of those characters has lived quite as hard as Sc&P’s Roger Sterling, played by John Slattery. Case in point: When Vulture asked Slattery where he sees Sterling in ten years, he quipped, “That’s easy, dead!”Vulture caught up with Slattery at the Atlantic Theater Company’s 30th Anniversary Gala at the Pierre, and he shared one character in particular he wished they’d spent a little more time on — his real-life wife, and onscreen ex-wife, Talia Balsam: Talia [Balsam] and I shot a scene that never aired, and I wish that they’d unearth that thing. It was a scene in a car [and] we were coming home from a dinner. The first dinner in that first episode with Don and Betty, »

Following on from news that director Kelly Reichardt (Night Moves) was reteaming with her Wendy and Lucy star Michelle Williams on her new as yet-untitled film, it looks like Kristen Stewart is now set to join them.
Deadline has reported that Stewart, fresh from her famous win at the French Cesar Awards, will join the cast of the film, which has also added Laura Dern (Wild), Jared Harris (Mad Men) and James Le Gros (Justified) to its impressive ranks.
Written and directed by Reichardt, the film is “a series of vignettes that revolve around the lives of people in small-town Montana.” Stewart will play “a young lawyer from Boise who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. Despite her nerves about teaching, she’s determined to prove to herself that she can do it. Soon after taking the job, Beth develops a close friendship with Jamie, a local »

The best new play of this young year has brought pros Diane Lane and Tony Shalhoub and relative newcomers Gayle Rankin and Mamoudou Athie to Lincoln Center Theater At The Mitzi Newhouse in The Mystery Of Love & Sex. Bathsheba Doran’s keenly satisfying comedy of sexual matters and manners is a coming-of-age tale in the age of coming-and-going that bears a palpable kinship with <a title="'Mad Men's Elisabeth Moss On Peggy Olson, Heidi Holland & Moving On: Conversations With… »
Fox’s deceptively titled new comedy, which bowed Sunday, quickly introduced the rule-abiding Carol Andrew Pilbasian (Kristin Schaal, 30 Rock) to play opposite series creator/star Will Forte as possibly the last woman on Earth, and Phil’s future bride.

Back in January, we reported that Fox had given a pilot order to their small-screen Minority Report sequel and over the past week, with production expected to begin soon, Fox has finalized its main cast for the upcoming sci-fi series. Stark Sands (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Meagan Good (Think Like A Man) have landed the lead roles with Sands playing the dual roles of Dash and Arthur, the two male Precogs, and Good playing Lara Vega, a detective haunted by her past, who will work with Dash to help him find a purpose for his gift.

Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth McCord is always one cool politico, no matter what tricky feat of international diplomacy is demanded of her. But those behind the scenes of CBS’ Sunday-night drama admit that its Season 2 pickup last month provided a welcome respite from the nerve-racking renwal waiting game.
“It was a big relief to get it early,” executive producer Lori McCreary says with a laugh.
“Huge,” chimes in fellow Ep Barbara Hall.
And now that the pressure is off the series’ team, they can focus on how it’s about »
Did you know that Kristen Stewart made history a week ago? The 24-year-old actress became the first American woman to win a prestigious Cesar Award, France's own version of the Academy Award. She also won it for an English-speaking role. Think about that for a second. This honor hasn't been bestowed upon Meryl Streep, Michelle Williams, Sigourney Weaver, Natalie Portman, Glenn Close, Susan Sarandon or any other globally acclaimed American actress over the past 30 years. No, it was Kristen Stewart who broke the French's reticence to reward anyone but their own. Stewart, an actress who continues to (mostly) put studio work behind her following a string of acclaimed performance in indie films over the past year. That career path continues with her next endeavor, the "Untitled Kelly Reichardt Project," In case the name is unfamiliar to you, Reichardt is an acclaimed director whose movies include festival favorites "Night Moves," "Meek's Cutoff" and "Wendy and Lucy. »

Looks like most of those rumors turned out to be true. The director of modern minimalist classics like “Wendy & Lucy,” “Old Joy,” “Meek’s Cutoff,” and “Night Moves” — that latter film we just placed on our 50 Best Films Of The Decade So Far list — a new Kelly Reichardt film is always cause for celebration. And so we greatly anticipate her upcoming project, an untitled, vignette-driven drama set in small town Montana. And the already-terrific cast just got even better. Kristen Stewart, coming off two great performances in “Clouds of Sils Maria” and “Camp X-Ray,” has joined the film. According to Deadline, she will portray a lawyer from Boise, Idaho who takes a teaching job several hours from her house. Stewart’s character develops a friendship with a local woman who’s auditing her class. Michelle Williams “stars” (or just might be the biggest name in the cast), and the cast also includes Laura Dern, »

After a bombardment of terrible sequels and remakes, the horror movie genre is undergoing something of a renaissance of late with the excellent Babadook and this week's It Follows leading the charge.
Both films are driven by strong performances from up-and-coming female stars (Essie Davis and Maika Monroe), which brings to mind a classic horror movie trope: the Final Girl. Most prevalent in slasher films, the Final Girl is the last character standing who confronts a killer/ghost/demon and lives to tell the tale.
Digital Spy looks back at 7 of our favourite horror movie Final Girls, why they're iconic and what they're up to now...
Many horror fans thought Drew Barrymore would end up being Scream's Final Girl when they first watched Wes Craven's 1996 horror, but the director offed her in the opening moments leaving Neve Campbell's Sidney Prescott to face down Ghostface. »

The story behind "Life in Color" is the epitome of independent filmmaking; write what you know and work your hardest to turn it into a film. Premiering in the Narrative Spotlight section of this year’s SXSW Film Festival, Katharine Emmer's debut "Life in Color" is "a grounded romantic dramedy about two strangers who are stuck house sitting together. Mary, a live-in-nanny and Homer, a clown-magician, meet at a 10-year-old's birthday party and both get fired by the end of the day. With nowhere to go, they are forced to house sit for Homer's successful and pompous childhood friend, Adam. This odd couple gets off to a rocky start. They soon realize the gravity of their situation and the necessity of joining forces, making money and pulling themselves out of the emotional hole they have lived in for years."
