22 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Time to take a trip down memory lane!  Rashida Jones chatted with Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig as part of the 31-year-old musician's new Apple Beats 1 radio show, where she revealed that she almost went to prom with none other than Robin Thicke.  "I was 12, 13. His dad was on Growing Pains and my mom was on Twin Peaks at the same time so we met at an ABC party and we flirted and exchanged numbers, landlines obviously," the 39-year-old actress recalled.  But turns out, the Parks and Recreation stunner was quite the heartbreaker as a teen and later revoked the "Blurred Lines" singer's invitation so she could attend the dance with another »

What We Know About Aziz Ansari’s Master of None So Far

29 July 2015 7:14 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Netflix revealed a few details about Aziz Ansari’s new show on Tuesday, including its title — Master of None — and premise: Ansari will play Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who "has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of life … Dev's story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner." Ansari stopped by the Summer TV Critics Press Association Tour Tuesday to discuss the show alongside fellow co-creator Alan Yang and Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur, who serves as executive producer alongside Ansari and Yang.  So what should we expect when “Master of None” premieres November 6?Ansari’s character will be loosely based on himself.Don’t expect Ansari’s character Dev to be a Tom Haverford redux. “He’s in his early 30s, »

Aziz Ansari Explains Casting His Mom And Dad In Netflix’s ‘Master Of None’ – TCA

28 July 2015 5:34 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Netflix’s Master of None is sort of based on Aziz Ansari’s stand-up, and kinda based on his book Modern Romance, but "we're really trying to do a wide breadth of topics and subject matter," Ansari told TV critics this afternoon at Summer TV Press Tour 2015. Unlike Parks And Recreation, the NBC ensemble comedy on which Ansari previously starred, Netflix affords producers the freedom of structure and form to only feature characters relevant to each episode.

Aziz Ansari on Taking Charge in ‘Master of None': ‘There’s No Time for Dicking Around’

28 July 2015 5:18 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Aziz Ansari is going from supporting player on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” to the writer, star and sometimes director of new Netflix comedy “Master of None,” which is also partly autobiographical. To hear the comedian tell it, the job is as all-encompassing as it sounds. “I always said ‘Parks’ would be the best job I ever had, it was great,” Ansari said onstage during the Television Critics’ Association summer press tour. “It was a few days a week, I was there for a few hours, I’d dick around for a while. With this , there’s no time for dicking around. »

Netflix renews 'BoJack,' sets premieres for 'Longmire' & Aziz Ansari comedy

28 July 2015 8:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Today's the first day of the summer 2015 Television Critics Association press tour (here's my traditional explainer of what tour is and how it works). I won't be going to tour until next week, but the magic of the internet allows me to pass on much of the news that breaks out there, starting with a bunch of Netflix announcements from day one: * "BoJack Horseman" has been renewed for a third season, 12 episodes of which will premiere next year. Since "BoJack" is now one of my favorite shows on TV, this news makes me happy. (Interestingly, Netflix is paneling "Sense8" today but has not announced a renewal yet for the expensive, strange, but at times amazing sci-fi series. That they're paneling a show that debuted almost two months ago speaks to the Netflix model versus the traditional one — new viewers could be discovering the first season at any time — but it's still odd. »

Parks and Recreation: another acclaimed Us show without the UK audience it deserves

27 July 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

It took a long time to come here and its fourth season is going out on Dave. But Parks and Recreation’s struggles put it in good company with Seinfeld, Breaking Bad and others

There’s good news for UK fans of the hardest-working local government department in Indiana, as the fourth season of Parks and Recreation is finally set to surface on Dave.

The series took an age to reach British shores, with BBC4 picking up the first seasons at the same time as the penultimate season was airing in the Us. But despite a top-drawer cast, with Amy Poehler, Nick Offerman, Aziz Ansari and Jurassic World star Chris Pratt playing some of the most enjoyable characters in modern sitcom history in a pitch-perfect caricature of small midwestern city life, the show hasn’t really managed to grab the British audience it deserves.

A corsets-free portrait of the Bloomsbury group in Life In Squares, a forbidding trek along The Pennine Way and joyous comedy in Parks And Recreation. Plus: hooligans face 24 Hours In Police Custody and the BBC opens The Secret Files

This is the sort of handsome, avuncular series the Beeb does really well. Polar adventurer and diver Paul Rose presents a four-part documentary (showing daily) in which he takes on the Pennine Way, a forbidding trek that runs like a spine through the north of England. It was opened in 1965, following resistance from the landed gentry. As well as telling that story, he meets theatre director Barry Rutter, who recalls past literary residents along the route, including Ted Hughes. David Stubbs

Tyrese Really Wants to be a Green Lantern

25 July 2015 11:10 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tyrese Gibson sure does like talking about Green Lantern. It's a definite change of pace from Marvel Studios who really dislike when their actors talk about roles before officially signing. Hell, online chatter said Asa Butterfield was the front-runner for Spider-Man until he went on social media and starting talking about it. However, this isn't Marvel, and Tyrese is openly campaigning for the role of John Stewart in Green Lantern Corps. Speaking to Collider, he had this to say about the role: "I've already had a couple of meetings at Warner Bros., so we'll see what happens. I do believe that there needs to be more black superheroes out there, but that's not even my motivation. I think I would be the best Green Lantern and based on my fans and supporters that spent around $6 billion in box office receipts, I feel like there's a fanbase of fans out there »

Amy Poehler and Pete Docter discuss ‘Inside Out’

24 July 2015 4:38 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The director, producer and star literally play with our emotions in Pixar’s latest adventure, Inside Out.

Pixar Animations Studio has introduced audiences to a number of cinematic treasures over the years including Wall-e (2008), Finding Nemo (2003) and the beloved Toy Story Trilogy (1995-2010). It is safe to say that their latest creation, Inside Out from director Pete Docter, is an impressive addition to the Pixar canon.

Inside the mind of 11-year-old Riley live five emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Disgust, and Fear. All emotions work together to make sure that Riley is feeling the right sentiments, reactions, and feelings. However, Joy works the hardest to make sure that Riley is happy as much as possible, keeping Sadness away from the controls. Joy’s task becomes harder when Riley’s parents decide to move from Minnesota to San Francisco turning Riley’s life upside down.

Inside Out is directed by animator, screenwriter and Oscar-winning filmmaker Pete Docter, »
