National Treasure Helmer Set To Direct Rush Hour Pilot Episode

11 February 2015 9:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

National Treasure and Last Vegas director Jon Turteltaub has signed on to helm the pilot episode of Rush Hour for CBS, according to Deadline. Based on New Line’s eponymous buddy cop franchise, the show is poised to revitalize the series in an entirely different medium while still retaining that fish out of water comedy heritage.

Fans of the original may disappointed to note that CBS’ rendition of Rush Hour won’t bring back stars Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – once described as the fastest hands in the east meeting the biggest mouth of the west – for another bout of crime fighting action, but with Brett Ratner and Arthur Sarkissian returning to executive produce, the network’s small screen reboot could very well channel the gleeful, on-the-nose magic of the trilogy.

The pair will team up with Scrubs and Cougar Town‘ producer Bill Lawrence on the production, which will still »

5 February 2015 7:58 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Call this the worst secret kept in Hollywood.

Cougar Town star Busy Philipps appeared on Bravo's Watch What Happens Live on Wednesday, and was honest when a viewer asked who the biggest stoner was on the set of NBC's Freaks and Geeks. Philipps starred in the now beloved comedy series alongside Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jason Segel and Linda Cardellini from 1999-2000.

Though host Andy Cohen initially guessed Franco, Philipps said that Franco doesn't smoke pot, and revealed that it was actually Rogen who used to provide her with weed.

"Yeah, I would say Seth," she shrugs. "He used to give me my pot, so ..."

CBS places pilot order for Rush Hour TV series, along with Joe Time and Super Clyde

30 January 2015 4:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in October, it was revealed that Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) was developing a pilot for a TV series based upon the action buddy comedy franchise Rush Hour, and now it has been announced that CBS has placed a pilot order.

The series will follow a similar plot to the first movie – albeit without Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker – with Entertainment Weekly stating that the pilot will revolve around “a stoic, by-the-book Hong Kong police officer who is assigned to a case in Los Angeles, where he’s forced to work with a cocky African-American Lapd officer who has no interest in a partner.”

As well as Rush Hour, CBS has also placed orders for family man comedy Joe Time, and Super Clyde, which was originally intended to feature Rupert Grint as a fast food worker who comes into money and decides to put it to good use fighting crime. »
