UTA Lands Chris Pratt: ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy’ Star Moves From CAA With Longtime Agents

17 hours ago | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Exclusive: The first big shoe has dropped after the exit of five senior CAA comedy agents to UTA. I’m told that Chris Pratt has followed his reps Jason Heyman and Martin Lesak to UTA. When Pratt began working with those agents, he was a comedy client, a cast member on Parks And Recreation. That series has just finished its run, and now Pratt has become so much more than that. He has emerged as perhaps the brightest leading man to come along in a long time. He starred in Gu… »

Wait, They're Making A Theme Park Based On The Hunger Games?

22 hours ago | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Theme parks based on dangerous concepts tend to be terrible ideas. Just ask the folks behind Jurassic Park, who apparently didn’t learn their lesson. So you’ll forgive us for not embracing the concept of a theme park based on The Hunger Games, because from what we remember about those first two Games movies, not a lot of people make it out of the arena alive. Lionsgate, however, has started down the path to bring both a Hunger Games and a Step Up theme park to Dubai through a partnership with Dubai Parks and Recreation. THR reports that the Motiongate Dubai parks would open in October 2016, and feature attractions, retail shops and stage shows inspired by both the Hunger Games and Step Up movie franchises. See, one of those makes a lot of sense! Step Up is a high-octane dance franchise that could inspire several Diy showcases »

NBC Sets Summer Premiere Dates for Pair of New Comedies, Eight Other Shows

26 March 2015 1:05 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBC has added to its busy summer slate, pairing new comedies “Mr. Robinson” and “The Carmichael Show” for an hour block on Wednesday and scheduling eight more new and returning series that will premiere between Memorial Day and early August.

New alternative entries “The Island” and “I Can Do That” are the first newcomers to come aboard, and each will get a lead-in from “American Ninja Warrior,” which had been previously announced for a May 25 premiere date.

“The Island,” based on the hit Channel 4 U.K. series of the same name, sends 14 American men to a deserted island with only the clothes on their backs and minimal survival skills. The twist is that there will be no prizes, eliminations, winners or producers. The six-episode series comes from Endemol Shine North America and Bear Grylls Ventures and will air Mondays at 10 starting May 25.

One night later, on Tuesday at 10 p. »

What Have Been Your Favorite New TV Shows of 2015 So Far?

26 March 2015 12:24 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

2015 has already seen the end of many long-running series, including Parenthood, Parks and Recreation, and Glee, and in a matter of weeks, Justified and Mad Men will also be joining that list of concluded shows (and that’s all within the first six months of this year!). Yet while myself (and probably others) have looked at 2015 as merely a year in which many great (or, if not great, at least impactful) series are ending, it’s also been a terrific year for new shows, even within these first three months. Since January, 2015 has gifted us with so many quality programs, some big and some small, that it’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite, especially because there’s so much variety. A little over a week ago, The CW premiered its newest series, iZombie, which I’ve been fortunate enough to review for TVOvermind, and in my write-up of the show’s second episode, »

TVLine Items: First Scream Queens Photo, Top Gear Axing and More

Say hello to Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens.

The creator of Fox’s upcoming comedy-horror anthology series on Wednesday tweeted a picture of his leading ladies, Jamie Lee Curtis and Lea Michele, together on set — and we’ve got a few questions.

VideosScream Queens: Meet Keke Palmer’s Creepy Co-Ed Character in New Promo

For example, what’s up with Michele’s dated windbreaker? Unless the former Glee star is going though a retro fashion phase, could this be a hint that Scream Queens is going to be set in the ’80s or ’90s? It’s no secret »

Review: 'Marvel's Agents of Shield' - 'Love in the Time of Hydra': Shield vs. Shield

24 March 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Agents of Shield" coming up just as soon as it's a little early for Taco Tuesday... "Love in the Time of Hydra" doesn't explain exactly who is funding Real Shield (to the point where they have their own helicarrier, which Coulson's group would kill for), what kind of authority they have within the U.S. government, how neither Coulson nor Talbot seems to know they exist, or any other pesky details. It does, however, explain why this group, led by Edward James Olmos' Robert Gonzales(*), feels the need to have their own group independent of Nick Fury's desires. And it presents them as good guys who just differ on certain philosophical issues from our heroes. That's a change from the Hydra arc introduced in "Winter Soldier," and hero vs. hero conflicts can often be more interesting than hero vs. villain. (There's a reason one »

The 25 Most Iconic Things About ‘Pretty Woman’

23 March 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

It’s been 25 years since the release of Garry Marshall‘s timeless fairytale, Pretty Woman. When it arrived in theaters back in 1990, the film opened to mixed reviews, but the dramedy starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere would become a box office smash and a cultural touchstone.Twenty five years later, Pretty Woman is a beloved classic, not to mention a pop culture reference in movies like Romy and Michele’s High School reunion and TV shows like Broad City and Parks and Recreation. From those unforgettable outfits to those endlessly re-quotable lines, we’ve picked the 25 most iconic things from Pretty Woman.

1. It Turned Julia Roberts Into a Full-Fledged Movie Star

Yes, the actress broke out in Hollywood in the late ’80s thanks to her work in Mystic Pizza and Steel Magnolias, but it wasn’t until she nabbed the role as bubbly, sexy hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold Vivian Ward that she became an A-list leading lady. »

Girls Recap: Lean In

23 March 2015 5:42 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Sometimes sentimental season finales feel like a cheat. The season it caps doesn't jibe with overwhelming sweetness, or perhaps it's been so bad it's undeserving of such a magnanimous end. I felt that way about the Parks and Rec series finale (contrarian opinion, I know); the last episode of season two of Girls, in which Adam suddenly returns to rescue Hannah from her Ocd meltdown, and Charlie and Marnie inexplicably get back together, ushered in a similar conclusion. It's all so Vitamin C, you know? So it just goes to show how far this show has come in just a couple of seasons that this week's finale, whatever its flaws, felt completely worthy of its sap factor, after such a string of truly great episodes.  This week, we've got ourselves a cold open: Hannah bursts out of the school where she works and sits on a low wall, breathing heavily. »

Review: The Final 'Mad Men' Season Premiere Asks If Don, or Anyone, Can Ever Be Happy

22 March 2015 9:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When series come to a close, especially long-running and critically-hailed television series, knowing that the ending is right around the corner can be so daunting it becomes a distraction. Some shows completely change their rhythms, as "Parks and Recreation" certainly did thanks to a three-year time jump in Season 7. Others are almost too lackadaisical with their sameness, allowing the finale to feel like a monotonous slog (think "Californication" or the overly-long "Lost"). But the greats — we're talking about "Breaking Bad," "The Wire," "Friday Night Lights" and even "Friends" — find a way to be both surprising and the same, because that's exactly how it should be remembered: As it always was. Though it's impossible to tell if "Mad Men" will join the ranks of those elite endings based on just one episode (even in an abbreviated half-season), the final season premiere of Matthew Weiner's game-changing...

Pretty Little Liars Author Sara Shepard Spills Her 'A' Theories, Shares Backstage Photos

Did you spot the special guest star in Tuesday's episode of Pretty Little Liars? Sara Shepard, whose hit book series inspired the show, made a cameo as a court reporter who revealed devastating news: A surprise witness from Mona's (Janel Parrish) past had evidence that helped seal Alison's (Sasha Pieterse) fate. (Spoiler alert: She's still rocking an orange jumpsuit after the trial.) "To come back and have a role was really fun," Shepard tells People. "It's the same crew and the same writers and kind of the same team that was working on the show from the very beginning, and »

Video of the Day: Watch ‘The Sarah Silverman Program’ pay tribute to Harris Wittels

17 March 2015 12:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The comedy world was recently rocked with the news that 30 year old comedian Harris Wittels was found dead in his house. Many comedic performers who had worked with Wittels paid tribute to him in the ensuing days, with fans also feeling his loss. Wittels was a notable presence both in front of and behind the camera, having made his mark as a guest in numerous podcast appearances, as well as a host of the Earwolf podcast Analyze Phish. Wittels was also famous for his work on twitter, and was an established writer as well, with his book Humblebrag: The Art of False Modesty getting published in 2012.

In addition to his solo accomplishments, Wittels was also known for his writing contributions to numerous comedies, most notably Parks and Recreation, whose final frame famously said “We love you, Harris”. Among the other shows he was a member of the writing staff »

Review: ‘One Big Happy’ illustrates sad state of NBC comedy brand

17 March 2015 10:57 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With "Parks and Recreation" ascended to heaven, "Community" descended to Yahoo and "Marry Me" and "About a Boy" preparing to evaporate into the ether, you might say that NBC's comedy brand was in jeopardy. That, however, would make the completely false assumption that NBC has a comedy brand. As the network heads into the heart of the Spring 2015 development season, NBC has a couple half-hour blocks of laugh-intended programming, which does not a "comedy brand" make.  The network's confusion at its place-filling strategy is evident in the new Tuesday block of "Undateable" and "One Big Happy," which premieres on Tuesday (March 17) with the not insignificant boost of "The Voice," which NBC presumably hopes will prevent the ignominy of a network having to start 100 percent from scratch, comedy-wise, at the May upfronts. On the surface, "Undateable" and "One Big Happy" feel similar, at least if your concept of similar is "All »

Jim Rash and Danny Pudi Want a ‘Community’ Movie with A Lot of Paintball

17 March 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

Community has been resurrected from the dead for season six by Yahoo!, which means its goal of #sixseasonsandamovie is thisclose to actually happening. At the sitcom’s press day, cast members Jim Rash, Danny Pudi, and Gillian Jacobs all gave their thoughts on what that feature film should look like.

Pudi, who plays the show’s resident pop culture junkie, and Rash, famous for his role as the inept Dean Pelton, both called for a paintball episode (which made its debut in season one’s “Modern Warfare,” and had two season-two sequels, “A Fistful of Paintballs” and “For a Few Paintballs More”) blown to epic proportions. “[Paintball] is the biggest thing we’ve done and it has the most movie ‘stuff,’” said Rash. “If that day comes, and we’re at a place where we want to cap off the whole thing, it would be good to put that on grand scale. »
