Wait! Whatc Sony Has Greenlit an Emoji Moviec

Sony Pictures Animation must certainly be enjoying how people are taking in the Pac-Man-heavy marketing for this weeks' Pixels (and, to the film's mild credit, he is the best part of it), because the suits in charge have ponied up the near seven figures to have some other yellow-faced friends transition to the big screen. In a heated three-studio audition, Sony won the right to have their banner placed in front of an Emoji movie. With Warner Bros and Paramount reported to be the other two studios vying to get the expressive, social media/text message-based personalities their cinematic due, it's apparently a ripe opportunity to take this property (c) to the next level, as the Japan-hatched ideograms don't subside themselves to any pesky rights, making them essentially free-reign when it comes to marketing, promoting and all that jazz. Does it matter that they'll have to take the extra route

Jim's Notebook: Open to Smash, The Mindy Project and More!

  • TVfanatic
This week’s Jim’s Notebook gets emptied out with remnants of my East Coast trip, where I hit the set of Smash as well as New York Comic-Con. But once I landed back in La-la-Land, I was off and running to cover a slew of other TV happenings...

Smash If you read last week’s Notebook, you caught part of my chat with Law & Order: Svu star Danny Pino. The day after visiting Svu on location in Brooklyn, I was off to Queens to spend some time at the set of Smash, where the cast was busy shooting episode eight of the second season.

With new blood coming in like Jennifer Hudson, Broadway’s Jeremy Jordan and a Will & Grace reunion with Sean Hayes and regular Debra Messing, NBC is giving it their all to shape Smash into a, well, smash when it returns, more than likely in January

New BBC Three Series Cuckoo Will Star Andy Samberg

SNL star, and one third of musical comedy trio, The Lonely Island, Andy Samberg, will star opposite Welsh comedian, Greg Davies (The Inbetweeners), in the forthcoming six-episode BBC Three series, Cuckoo. BBC Three targets 16-34 year olds, and they have obviously cottoned on to the immense popularity garnered by Mr Samberg from this demographic. His SNL skits and musical parodies with The Lonely Island, as well as Greg Davies’s appearance in The Inbetweeners could mean they have a sufficient potential audience before the show is even broadcast.

The first episode of the show sees Ken (Davies), and Lorna (Helen Baxendale), go to collect their daughter (Tamla Kari) from the airport, after her gap year away. They are epically peeved then, when they discover she is not alone. Her new husband, Cuckoo (Samberg) – a ‘squared-jawed, self-appointed spiritual ninja’ – is with her, and he is here to stay, much to Ken and Lorna’s chagrin.

Felicia Day Interview: What to Expect From ‘The Guild’ Season 2

It's official. Felicia Day is a certified web star. The creator, lead actress and producer of what has become the gold standard for independent web series, The Guild, has redefined what it means to be a star.
