Interview: 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' star Andre Braugher still isn't sure he's funny

4 October 2014 10:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Andre Braugher has a pair of Emmy wins for drama and one could easily argue that it's a minor travesty he only won one Emmy for "Homicide: Life on the Street." He's mastered a wide range of portrayals of heroes who are stern, capable and flawed, giving them authentic, raw life. And at least for the foreseeable future, it's going to be hard to interview Andre Braugher without suddenly finding humor in his thoughtful and entirely earnest answers.  Captain Ray Holt on "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" isn't Braugher's first role to feature humor. As he correctly notes, "Men of a Certain Age" offered him the chance to get humane, ego-free laugher and earned him two Emmy nominations, though they were technically for drama. Braugher's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" nomination was his first for comedy and was a recognition of how swiftly Braugher has eased into the rhythm of the single-cam and how instantly proficient »

What happened to the stars of Big? Elizabeth Perkins, more then & now

1 October 2014 11:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Big remains one of our favourite Tom Hanks childhood movies (perhaps losing out to Turner and Hooch, boy did that make us blub, we barely held it together) so we're slightly unnerved by reports that a TV series based on the film has been commissioned.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are now said to have received a script plus penalty commitment from broadcaster Fox for the half-hour comedy series, which will explore what it means to be both an adult and child in today's world.

The 1988 Oscar-nominated movie, written by Gary Ross and Anne Spielberg, sees a boy's simple wish to be big come true as a 13-year-old is transformed into a 30-year-old overnight.

We take a nostalgic look at the cast of the huge hit - including Tom Hanks and John Heard - and what came next below:

Tom Hanks Classic 'Big' Gets TV Adaptation

1 October 2014 6:47 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Good news, fans of Eighties coming-of-age comedy: Zoltar has granted your wish for a half-hour TV show loosely based on Big, the 1988 classic starring Tom Hanks. According to Variety, Fox has acquired the project from Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce, executive producers of that network's Enlisted.

The as-yet-untitled show will explore themes similar to the movie, specifically "what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever." Biegel, who also co-created the comedy Cougar Town, »

Tom Hanks Comedy Classic Big Is Getting A TV Adaptation

30 September 2014 12:36 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Wrap reports that Fox is yanking the cord from the Zoltar machine.  For those craving another dose of bodyswap comedy hijinks, prepare yourself for another trip to the world of Big.

The network has acquired the title with plans to adapt the original movie into an event series told through 30 minute episodes. Penny Marshall’s original 1988 caper told the story of Josh Baskin, a 13-year old kid who makes a wish on a fortune-telling arcade machine. The next morning he wakes to find his dream – to become ‘big’ – has become a reality. Whether or not he also muttered that he’d like to look like Tom Hanks is by the by, as the floppy-haired actor absolutely killed it as the kid trapped in the body of an adult.

Shepherding this move to the small screen are TV comedy pioneers, Kevin Beigel and Mike Royce.  The executive producers behind Fox’s military smash, »

Fox Is Turning Tom Hanks' 'Big' Into a TV Show

30 September 2014 12:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Fox is teaming up with Enlisted producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce for a half-hour comedy series based on the hit 1988 movie Big starring Tom Hanks.

Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are writing the pilot episode, loosely based on the movie, which explores what it means to be a kid and also an adult in the 21st Century, and how confusing each part of one's life can be.

Tom Hanks played Josh in Big, a young boy who makes a wish to be big through a magical machine, only to wake up the next day as a full-grown adult. Elizabeth Perkins, Robert Loggia and John Heard co-starred in the comedy, which was directed by Penny Marshall. The film earned over $150 million worldwide during its theatrical run.

Before working together on Fox's Enlisted, Kevin Biegel co-created Cougar Town and served as a writer and producer on the ABC sitcom Scrubs. Mike Royce »

Fox remaking Tom Hanks film 'Big' with 'Enlisted' producers

30 September 2014 11:54 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Fox has ordered a comedy adaptation of the Tom Hanks film Big from Enlisted producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce, EW has confirmed. Loosely based on the film, Big will tell a new story that explores the line between being a kid and an adult—and how those two things are more confused than ever in today’s world. (Here’s hoping Hanks has been practicing on his giant piano in case he wants to drop by.) The original 1988 film starred Hanks as kid who wished to "be big" after failing to get on a carnival ride and was shocked »

Fox Buys ‘Big’ TV Show Remake From ‘Enlisted’ Team

30 September 2014 11:28 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Continuing with the current TV trend of mining Gen X and Gen Y nostalgia for project ideas, Fox has bought a half-hour comedy loosely based on the Tom Hanks movie “Big” from “Enlisted” exec producers Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce via 20th Century Fox Television Studios.

The event series, which Biegel and Royce will write and executive produce, follows the message of the 1988 movie and plans to delve into “what it means to be an adult and what it means to be a kid, and how in today’s world those two things are more confused than ever.”

Aside from their partnership on “Enlisted” for Fox, which Biegel also created, Biegel is known for co-creating “Cougar Town” while Royce was the co-creator/executive producer of “Men of a Certain Age” and the executive producer/showrunner of HBO’s “Lucky Louie” and NBC’s “1600 Penn.” Both men are represented by UTA and Morris Yorn. »

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine's' Andre Braugher on Season 2, His New Nemesis and Trying Not to Crack Up

27 September 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

In the wake of Detective Jake Peralta's (Andy Samberg) undercover FBI assignment, the dynamics at Brooklyn's 99th precinct have changed — at least behind the scenes, co-star AndreBraugher says. As the hit sophomore comedy kicks of its second season Sept. 28, the Emmy nominee behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Capt. Ray Holt says the cast of characters behind Fox's second-year comedy has turned into a finely tuned machine.

5 Things You Should Know About NCIS: New Orleans Star Scott Bakula

24 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Seventeen million viewers can't be wrong. At least that many tuned in Tuesday night to see Scott Bakula make his debut as Dwayne "King" Pride, the special agent in charge over at CBS's burgeoning hit, NCIS: New Orleans. While most fans remember that Bakula played Dr. Sam Beckett in the cult sci-fi series Quantum Leap for four years, what else is there to know about the attractive 59-year-old actor? A lot, actually. Here are five of them: 1. He can sing! He started a rock band as a kid, crooned in high school musicals and even sang with the St. Louis Symphony. »

TV Review: ‘NCIS: New Orleans’

22 September 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Produced with factory-like precision, “NCIS: New Orleans” seems determined not to give viewers watching lead-in “NCIS” any reason to reach for the remote or clap off the TV. And other than the jazz riffs (which no one will confuse with “Treme”) and Scott Bakula subbing for Mark Harmon (who doubles as an exec producer), audiences probably won’t notice much difference between the two shows. Despite conspicuous creole flavoring, this second spinoff looks likely to pick up pretty seamlessly where the “L.A.” edition left off – with Bakula providing good company, and justice served up faster than street-vendor gumbo.

Of course, the series really started last season, when CBS featured a planted spinoff within the context of “NCIS.” And the prospect of regular crossovers between the two series is made clear right off the bat when Cch Pounder’s medical examiner consults via TV monitor with her counterpart played by David McCallum. »

Michael Wright to Replace Stacey Snider at DreamWorks as CEO

4 September 2014 9:11 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

DreamWorks Studios has named Michael Wright, former president and head of programming at TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, as its new CEO, replacing Stacey Snider who will leave the company at the beginning of January.

Wright will not be a partner at the studio as Snider was, and will not be involved with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television operations when he starts the job Jan. 3, 2015.

Spielberg made the hire as Snider is prepping to leave DreamWorks for 20th Century Fox. He had previously worked with Wright on several DreamWorks TV series that aired on TNT, including “Falling Skies,” and the miniseries “Into the West,” and often praised the executive.

“I have had the pleasure of working alongside Michael for many years and have come to know him as a talented executive whose creativevision, leadership, and passion are a perfect fit for our company,” Spielberg said in a statement announcing Wright’s hire. »

Sneak Peek: Scott Bakula Previews NCIS: New Orleans

26 August 2014 5:31 PM, PDT | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

If you're seeking a metaphor for acting, you couldn't do much better than the body-jumping premise of Quantum Leap. In the 21 years since that series went off the air, its star, Scott Bakula, has leaped into a striking array of characters, with an initial emphasis on more sci-fi (Star Trek: Enterprise) eventually offset by a turn toward naturalistic dramedy (Men of a Certain Age). But playing a cop on a network procedural? Inexplicably, that seemingly inevitable move had proven a leap too far.

This oversight has finally been rectified with Bakula's role as the lead in NCIS: New Orleans, premiering on CBS Sept. 23 in the coveted Tuesday time slot immediately following the franchise's flagship series...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Andre Braugher on Latest Emmy Nod (and One He Forgot)

10 July 2014 2:59 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

You can never have too much of a good thing, or so the old saying goes. But in Andre Braugher‘s case, you can have so many Primetime Emmy acting nominations (eight to be exact), that you’ll need a few moments — and perhaps a little help — to remember ‘em all.

Conspiracies and Devious Doings Dominating Drama Series

9 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

I started to get a little paranoid last month while sitting through the major networks’ upfront presentations in Gotham.

One after the other, the nets rolled out new dramas rooted in the high-intensity conspiracy/mystery/post-apocalypse/everything-you-think-you-know-is-wrong milieu that has worked so well for cablers in recent years. Call it the “Homeland”-meets-“Breaking Bad” effect. To name a few: NBC has “Allegiance,” “Odyssey” and “State of Affairs”; Fox has “Hieroglyph”; ABC has “American Crime,” “How to Get Away With Murder” and “The Whispers”; USA Network has “Dig”; TNT has “The Last Ship” and “Legends.”

I fear there are so many international global conspiracies unfolding in primetime next season that not even the flawed anti-hero love child of Jack Bauer and Carrie Mathison would be able to keep us safe from harm. And there has been an explosion in the number of seemingly innocuous suburbanites harboring deep dark backstories that »

Inside the Office of TNT’s President of Programming Michael Wright

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Michael Wright, TNT’s president of programming, clearly loves television. A former actor who transitioned into the executive suite, Wright strives to set a welcoming mood in his spacious Burbank office, with its sweeping view of the Warner Bros. lot. (“Look, there’s Peter Roth’s office,” he jokes. “I wonder what he’s doing now?”) “I’ve always maintained that network executives don’t create hit television shows — really talented showrunners do,” he says. “So the single best thing you can do is create an environment where the Howard Gordons and Steven Bochcos and Steven Spielbergs of the world want to come work with you.”

Oh Captain: Wright keeps his grandfather’s captain’s bars in the credenza behind his desk. “I know it sounds corny, but my grandfather is my hero,” he says. “I never met a human being to this day with a better character, better brain, »

3 June 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Slackerwood | See recent Slackerwood news »

Austin television fans have been gearing up for the 3rd annual Atx Television Festival (or as the festival likes to say, "Season 3"), running from Thursday, June 5 to Sunday, June 8 in downtown Austin. The relatively new festival features a handful of current television shows as well as a few retrospectives and panels that focus on the behind-the-scenes world of TV. Venues include Alamo Drafthouse Ritz and Stateside at the Paramount.

The full lineup was recently released, and Nineties kids will once again rejoice at the fact that another childhood favorite is coming to Atx. A cast and crew reunion of Hey Dude! is one of the headliners, bringing fan favorites such as Christine Taylor and David Brisbin to town. That's not the only reunion the fest has planned, though. Everwood and Roswell cast members are also coming together again to discuss what it was like to work on these popular shows. »

Ray Romano has joined the cast of HBO‘s untitled Rock ’n’ Roll drama pilot, from executive producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, George Mastras and Terence Winter. The pilot is eyeing a production start in early summer with Scorsese directing.

Romano will play Richie’s close confidante and right hand man Zak Yankovich, the tough and sharp-witted Head of Promotions of American Century with years of experience dating back to the shady, mob-infested days of the recording business. The cast also includes Olivia Wilde and Juno Temple. Victoria Pearman, Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Rick Yorn also executive produce. »
