Rosie Perez Is Heading To TV To Star In ABC Remake Of BBC Comedy Series 'Bad Education'

17 December 2013 8:59 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Rosie Perez has booked a starring role opposite Jack Whitehall in ABC’s comedy pilot An American Education, which is based on the BBC series Bad Education (no relation to the Pedro Almodóvar 2004 movie). The original series also starred Jack Whitehall as young teacher Alfie Wickers – "the worst teacher ever to grace the British education system" – at the fictional Abbey Grove School, in Watford, Hertfordshire. In the American TV remake, the character will instead be a British transplant teaching within the San Diego public school system.  Rosie Perez has signed up to play Rita Gomez, the school’s tough-as-nails Vice Principal, who rules with an iron fist, and who Alfie is intimidated by. I can see her in that role, very clearly. The busy actress who's done some voice work on The Cleveland Show, was most recently seen on the big screen in The Counselor. Up next, look for her »

‘Family Guy’: New Site Hints At Brian’s Return From The Dead

26 November 2013 8:23 AM, PST | HollywoodLife | See recent HollywoodLife news »

A countdown clock teases a major announcement coming Friday, Dec. 6, at 12 p.m. Est! Is Brian coming back?

When Brian Griffin died on the Nov. 24 episode of Family Guy, fans reacted with a flood of emotions — mostly fury, directed at creator Seth MacFarlane for offing one of his show’s most beloved characters. But a cryptic new website hints that fans might soon be feeling a new emotion: relief! BriansAnnouncement.com promises “a special announcement” from the Griffin family’s dearly departed pet, complete with a countdown clock promoting the mysterious reveal.

Unfortunately, that’s where the well dries up. The website offers no further information about what said announcement might be, leaving fans to speculate what could be in store for the late, great Brian Griffin.

Also weird: A Fox source tells HollywoodLife.com‘s sister site TVLine that the network has no involvement with the site. (TVLine also »

Family Guy: 5 Reasons It Was A Huge Mistake To Kill Brian Griffin

25 November 2013 10:44 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

I’ll be honest: I haven’t watched Family Guy religiously for a long time. The show took a noticeable dive in quality a few years ago when the originality seemed to drain out from within, almost as if the writers – and creator Seth MacFarlane – had given up caring. There wasn’t a particular thing about the show that put me off, but it became increasingly mean-spirited, the jokes more obscure and less funny, and the popular culture “references” were bizarrely hollow – Peter on a skateboard whilst the Back to the Future theme plays. That’s not a joke. That’s just… something.

So even though I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan, I’ve spent enough time with Family Guy to say I’m probably more familiar with it than your average schmo. I don’t keep up with it anymore, but I’ll check it out »

‘Family Guy’ Season 12 DVD Review

15 November 2013 2:00 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Creator: Seth MacFarlane

Starring: Seth MacFarlane, Mila Kunis, Seth Green, Mike Henry, Patrick Warburton, Alex Borstein, Adam West

Running Time: 457 Mins

Certificate: 15

Extras: Deleted Scenes, looking back at the pilot, scene animatic from “Seahorse Seashell Party” with side-by-side commentary, full episode animatic from “Back to the Pilot”, fishin around with Ricky Gervais, audio commentary on select episodes, audio outtakes with Ricky Gervais, Ron MacFarlane reads viewer mail, scene animatic from “Family Guy viewer mail #2″ with side-by-side commentary

 

With Family Guy now in its twelfth season and dominating ratings on a weekly basis, it’s hard to believe that 20th Century Fox ever cancelled the show and it’s even harder to believe they did it twice in the early 2000’s. Now in its prime Family Guy is looking sharper than ever with the animation almost as beautiful as a Disney classic in this glorious time of high definition that we live in. »

Seth MacFarlane’s Bordertown Receives Series Order From Fox

11 November 2013 12:47 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Multi-hyphenate Seth MacFarlane is set to expand his ever-increasing comedy empire this fall as Fox has just announced that they have given a 13-episode order to the animated Bordertown. Co-created by MacFarlane and Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann, the show will be “taking on immigration and the undergoing cultural shift” which is presently enveloping 2013 America. Sounds interesting and we have no doubt that these hot-button issues will receive an unmerciful skewing at the hands of MacFarlane and his comedic-desperados.

Set to tak place in a fictional town on the U.S./Mexico border, the show centres on the following:

“The intertwining daily lives of neighbors Bud Buckwald and Ernesto Gonzales. Bud, a married father of three, is a Border Patrol agent who feels threatened by the cultural changes that have transformed his neighborhood. Living next door is Ernesto, an industrious Mexican immigrant and father of four, who is proud to be making it in America. »

Fox Orders Seth MacFarlane Animated Series ‘Bordertown’

11 November 2013 8:51 AM, PST | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Seth MacFarlane may have his critics, but there’s little point in denying that the man who created Family Guy and American Dad has established himself a highly-marketable brand both on television and the big screen.

Despite Ted earning over $500 million worldwide (and a sequel on the way), it looks like MacFarlane is determined to balance both his television and film projects. In addition to Family Guy and American Dad, he has only new live-action comedy Dads on Fox, as the network has reportedly opted not to renew The Cleveland Show (its lead will be re-introduced on Family Guy). Now it looks like the always-busy MacFarlane is taking on yet another series ...

Seth MacFarlane Serves Up New Animated Comedy For Fox

11 November 2013 4:03 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Seth MacFarlane continues his ‘animation domination’ of the television schedules it seems, as Fox announces a new series commission from the Family Guy and American Dad creator.

Entitled Bordertown, the animated comedy from MacFarlane and Family Guy scribe Mark Hentemann will make it’s debut on Fox in autumn 2014, and tell the stories of the Buckwald and Gonzalez families, both living in a fictional southwestern town on the Us/Mexico border. Bud Buckwald is a border patrol agent “threatened by cultural change”, while Ernesto Gonzalez is an unspecifically employed “industrious Mexican immigrant”. No confirmation yet as to whether there’ll be a talking animal character, though we’re placing our bets on a anthropomorphic Mexican Tree Frog making an appearance!

It sounds like there’ll be a nice little bit of satirical humour, but does it have enough in terms of story potential to last several seasons? We’re not sold as of yet. »

Fox Orders New Seth MacFarlane Animated Comedy Series For Next Season

8 November 2013 6:35 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Seth MacFarlane is taking on immigration and the undergoing cultural shift in America. Seriously. With American Dad! moving to TBS and The Cleveland Show quietly getting cancelled, MacFarlane‘s animated presence on Fox had gone down to one show, flagship Family Guy.

Star Wars Episode 7: 8 Actors Who Should Be Cast

29 October 2013 12:22 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

In June, Star Wars fans everywhere breathed a collective sigh of relief when rumours emerged that Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson had been blacklisted from appearing in Episode 7. Apparently in order for the producers to avoid having to deal with hysterical Twilight fans. Which was a wise move since it means we can watch the film without Twilight fangirls squealing because Robert Pattinson whipped out his Lightsaber (No, it’s not a euphemism).

But away from the horrifying idea of a possible inextricable link between Twilight and Star Wars, the question of who will be joining the cast of Episode 7 is still largely unanswered. So we’ve compiled a list of eight actors who we think should be cast in Episode 7…

‘Office’ Alums Gabe Miller, Jonathan Green Set Comedies at CBS and NBC

28 October 2013 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Comedy writers Gabe Miller and Jonathan Green (“The Office”) have set two development prospects, one at CBS, the other at NBC.

The untitled CBS entry revolves around a lifestyle expert who has trouble connecting with people, particularly the woman who falls for him. It’s a single-camera vehicle set up through Warner Bros. TV.

The untitled NBC project, hailing from Universal TV, is also a single-cam. It centers on two overachievers whose childhood rivalry flares anew when they find themselves working at a Huffington Post-style website. Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan are also exec producers.

Miller and Green’s credits also include “The Cleveland Show” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.” The pair served as co-exec producers on the final season of “The Office,” and they exec produced with “Office” boss Greg Daniels an NBC comedy pilot produced earlier this year starring another “Office” mate, Craig Robinson, which remains »

When The Cleveland Show wasn’t renewed in the spring, Family Guy fans wondered when and how Cleveland might make his return to his original home.

At Comic-Con in July, it was revealed that after spending the last four seasons in Stoolbend headlining his own animated comedy, the genial, mustachioed character would journey back to Quahog in an episode this season titled “He’s Bla-ack.” Now, more details about his homecoming have emerged.

‘The Simpsons,’ ‘Family Guy’ Animation Domination: An Evolution

15 October 2013 8:55 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Of all the shows 20th Century Fox Television produces, it’s the animated ones that have taken on a life of their own.

“The two most profitable TV series the studio has ever done are ‘The Simpsons’ and ‘Family Guy,’ ” says 20th TV chairman and CEO Gary Newman, who joined the company in 1990, shortly after the yellow-skinned Springfield family branched off from “The Tracey Ullman Show” and became its own animated sitcom, battling NBC’s top-rated “Cosby Show” to a near-draw in its second season. A decade later, he worked with Seth MacFarlane to adapt his animated short “Larry and Steve” into what would become “Family Guy.”

“I think what really stands out about those two series is both came from creators who had a very specific and strong vision, and in both cases, the people responsible for that vision have stayed in control of the show,” Newman says.

Fox’s Shrinking Animation Domination: Midseason Series ‘Murder Police’ Scrapped

8 October 2013 3:05 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Fox has nixed midseason animated comedy series Murder Police. I hear the decision was made by Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly after reading scripts and watching footage of upcoming episodes. Because of the nature of animation production, there is work done on various episodes at the same time though I hear there is no completed episode yet. (The series order was made off a presentation.) I hear producer 20th Century Fox TV is planning to continue fulfilling the 13-episode order and shop the series elsewhere. There has been only one addition to Fox’s “Animation Domination” Sunday block that has stuck since Reilly joined the network in 2007 — cult (and Fox brass) favorite Bob’s Burgers, which was recently renewed for a fifth season. Murder Police was Fox’s first animated series order in more than two years — since the 2010 pickups of Jonah Hill’s Allen Gregory and Napoleon Dynamite, which only aired for 7 and 6 episodes, »

'The Simpsons' Season 25 premiere: 'Homerland' tackles terrorism, sort of

29 September 2013 5:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

The historic 25th season of "The Simpsons" has arrived. The season premiere takes on "Homeland" as Homer comes home from a work convention a changed man. He's polite, he's eating healthy, he's not strangling Bart. There's only one possible answer, he was kidnapped and brainwashed by terrorists before coming home.

Of course, Lisa is the only one who sees something wrong, so she calls the FBI. That's where Kristen Wiig comes in as a guest voice, playing a bipolar FBI agent, in the same vein as Claire Danes' CIA operative Carrie Mathison on "Homeland," but way more over the top.

In the end it was all a crazy mix up, of course. Homer actually befriended a bunch of hippies who taught him a better lifestyle. Oh, those hippies. They also enlightened him about the damage a nuclear power plant could cause, which leads to him finding a peaceful way of closing Springfield's, »
