Is Episodes the One Where We Still Get To Enjoy Friends-style Sitcom Fun?

30 June 2015 7:32 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Now in its fourth series, the Anglo-American show-within-a-show has got looser, broader, dafter, ruder – and as unmissable as Matt LeBlanc’s greatest hit

We’ll probably never get a Friends reunion, mainly because the cast are all mind-bogglingly rich, and they’re all doing pretty well for themselves anyway.

Of course, nobody will ever match the divine ascendance of Lisa Kudrow (everyone loves The Comeback, but if you haven’t binged on Web Therapy yet, then what is wrong with you?). David Schwimmer has been having a dignified time of it on Broadway and as a director. Matthew Perry has fun lurching from cancelled show to cancelled show, picking righteous fights with Peter Hitchens as he goes; Courteney Cox enjoys median success with Cougar Town; and Jennifer Aniston has forged a stellar career as a professional Jennifer Aniston.

11 Original TV Show Titles That Just Wouldn't Have Been the Same

19 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Choosing a title for a TV show is tricky business. A name has to basically sum up the entire concept of the series and be compelling enough to make you want to give it a try. You don't want a "Cougar Town" or the soon-forgotten "It's Like, You Know..." on your hands. Some of the most popular TV shows of all time could have been known as something else, and we understand why most of these titles didn't make the cut... Find out what could have been and learn some titles that were in the running for 11 TV shows we know and love.

The Weirdest Emmy Ballot Omissions and Oddities

15 June 2015 7:15 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The race for the Emmys has officially begun. Voting for the TV Academy’s top honors is now open until June 26 — exclusively online for the first time ever — and ballots for all categories are available for viewing.

Variety perused some of the top categories to check out the inevitable oddities, including series left out of consideration (wherefore art thou, “Cougar Town”?) and key performers guaranteed not to get nominated because they’re not on the ballot (sorry, Max Greenfield).

– It was news when the TV Academy’s new attempt to define half-hours as comedies and hourlong series as dramas resulted in “Orange Is the New Black” moving to drama series contention this year. (Meanwhile “Glee” and “Shameless” stayed in comedy, along with newcomer “Jane the Virgin.”) But somehow hourlongs “Devious Maids” (Lifetime) and “Hart of Dixie” (the CW) wound up in the comedy category too, with no fanfare.

25 Years in La Part 3: Showtime, the Silverado, and the rise of Ain't It Cool

10 June 2015 11:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The first and most important thing that happened as a result of the staging of "Sticks and Stones" at the Met Theater as part of the Act One Festival was that Scott Swan and I got our first agent. Barbara Baruch worked for Ambrosio/Mortimer, a smaller boutique agency at the time, and from the moment we met her, she seemed like what I imagined an agent to be. She was nurturing, she was a cheerleader, she was a ballbuster, and she was always, always, always in our corner. Our time with her was unfortunately too short, and by the time the agency imploded in accusations of embezzlement, we were already repped by Gersh out of New York. Barbara was first, though, and she was the first one to start pushing people to come see our show and to read our work. The strangest thing about those early days is »

17 May 2015 12:13 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

They may be best known today for their later roles, but these six stars all got their first break by playing super heroes on TV. Maybe these shows aren’t the most memorable or well-made super hero projects, and they aren’t the highlight of the actor’s career, but these little shows jump-started the careers of some future celebrities.

Bruce Lee

Started out as—Kato, the Kung-Fu fighting sidekick to the Green Hornet in the TV series The Green Hornet (1966).

After that—Lee had a recurring role in the detective series Longstreet before returning to Hong Kong to star in a highly successful trio of films; The Big Boss (1971); the Chinese Connection (1972) and the Way of the Dragon (1972). His first and only Hollywood film was Enter the Dragon (1973). Lee died young and his legend has grown ever since. He is considered by many as the greatest martial arts star in the history of film. »

Today it’s CBS’ turn to announce which pilots it is moving forward with, and unsurprisingly the theme is franchises. The network announced that the Rush Hour and Limitless TV show adaptations will be greenlit, as will a Criminal Minds spinoff, a medical drama, and two comedies. Let’s take a closer look… Rush Hour is, of course, an adaptation of the feature film trilogy of the same name that starred Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan. This hourlong dramedy revolves around a by-the-books Hong Kong police officer (Jon Foo) who is assigned a case in Los Angeles where he’s forced to team up with a cocky Lapd officer (Justin Hires). The pilot was penned by Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence and Cougar Town alum Blake McCormick, with the two are executive producing alongside Jeff Ingold and the film’s Brett Ratner, Arthur Sark, and Jon Turtletaub, who directed the pilot. »
