The Ranch was created by Don Reo and Jim Patterson, and is set on a Colorado spread, with Colt Bennett (Kutcher) returning home after a brief semi-pro football career to run the family business with his brother Jimmy (Danny Masterson). Cuthbert (who is next going to be seen opposite Seann William Scott in Goon: Last Of The Enforcers) will apparently play Cold’s old flame, a former cheerleader. Debra Winger and Sam Elliott have already been cast to play Colt and Jimmy’s parents in the series.
That’s an impressive cast, and it’s been a pretty busy week for Netflix as well, as they also recently cast Christopher Mintz-Plasse in another comedy series they’re working on titled Flaked. »

Can you make an entire sitcom out of the fact that John Stamos looks really, really good for a man in his 50s? As it turns out, yes. With Daniel Chun (“The Office,” “Hello Ladies” and “Happy Endings”) penning a quick-witted script, “Grandfathered” subverts every hokey cliche that it nearly crashes into by maintaining a savvy self-awareness. Stamos plays Jimmy Martino, a successful Los Angeles restaurateur who’s a fixture in the dining room at Jimmy’s every night, delivering the same flattering line to every female who walks through the door. He’s always found at the center of a glamorous coterie of. »

There’s a pervading sweetness running throughout Fox’s new sitcom Grandfathered, premiering alongside The Grinder this fall. Although both shows feature a somewhat cliche structure that’s largely the same, in reverse – Rob Lowe returning to his family in The Grinder, John Stamos discovering he even has one in Grandfathered – where this show prevails slightly over Lowe’s sitcom is in two important areas. One: it’s funny. Two: I wouldn’t mind spending a few weeks getting to know these characters more. Both facts run right in the face of the show’s stock playboy-settles-down plot arc, which lets its characters move around and have fun thanks to its simplicity, unlike The Grinder‘s stifling, largely humorless stranglehold over nearly everyone on screen.
The show opens with Jimmy Martino (John Stamos) making the rounds at Jimmy’s, the local fancy restaurant he owns and operates. »

Would anybody mind if The Mindy Project worked its way through the cast of Happy Endings as the casting department stocks the show with hilarious guest actors?

Maybe they should call it One Degree of Mindy?
Fox is developing a comedy pilot produced by two former costars of Mindy Kaling: Adam Pally (Happy Endings, The Mindy Project) and Paul Lieberstein (The Office), according to our sister site Deadline.
Niether, Pally (who played the series-regular character of Peter Prentice on Mindy for a season and a half) nor Lieberstein (who played The Office‘s hapless Toby while also serving as executive producer), is attached to appear in the potential project.
Amazon has released first looks at its line-up for its next pilot preview season, which includes shows starring Max Martini (The Unit), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Tig Notaro and others.

No, Mindy Lahiri is no longer drunkenly riding bicycles into swimming pools, but please don’t think that means she’ll have her stuff together when The Mindy Project returns — on Hulu — on Tuesday, Sept. 15.
Executive producer Matt Warburton tells TVLine that the comedy is viewing its expanded, 26-episode fourth season as an opportunity to mess with its main character, who seems like she’s gotten pretty much everything she wanted.

You're the Worst might not be on your radar. But it should be. The twisted romantic comedy's second season debuts Wednesday night on Fxx - moving over from sister network FX - and is really the only show of its kind on the air right now. Starring Aya Cash as romance-averse music publicist Gretchen and Chris Geere as her bitter Brit-novelist love interest, Jimmy, it's smart, entertaining, and yes, even heartfelt, even though Gretchen and Jimmy would hate to admit it. Here are six reasons you need to be watching: 6. It's from the same guy behind Weeds and Orange Is the New Black. Stephen Falk, who is co-executive-producer on Oitnb and previously held down the same job on Weeds, is also at the helm of this series. So if you expect the same acerbic wit, outlandish situations, and flawed-but-somehow-appealing characters he's had such success in dreaming up and writing for in the past, »

The Mindy Project will be providing some Happy Endings in Season 4. Eliza Coupe, an alum of the ultra-beloved ABC sitcom, will guest star in an upcoming Season 4 episode of Mindy. Coupe shared the news on Instagram yesterday, posting a photo of her and Mindy Project actor/writer Ike Barinholtz together and writing, “Starting off the day (in my underwear) with this maniac.” Although no details are yet known about Coupe’s character, it appears that, at least from the photo below, she will be getting pretty close to Barinholtz’s Morgan. Perhaps the ever-eccentric nurse has found himself a new girlfriend?

It looks like The Mindy Project‘s Morgan is getting a happy ending of his own.
No word yet on who Coupe will play, but judging by the actress’ Instagram photo from the Mindy set, her character will be getting up close and personal with Ike Barinholtz’s quirky alter ego.
The Mindy Project premieres Tuesday, Sept. 15, on Hulu.
