Hold. The. Phone. Could Awkward actually continue after the upcoming season five after all?!  Although MTV previously announced that season five of their cult favorite hit series would be the final season (which broke our Awkward-loving hearts into a million tiny pieces, Fyi), it sounds like there might actually be hope to continue keeping up with the lives of Jenna Hamilton (Ashley Rickards) and her BFFs and BFs after season five ends! Executive producer Chris Alberghini exclusively tells E! News that the writers were so excited about their plans to jump forward one year in the future in the back half of season five (aka to life after high school) that it "intrigued" them about all the new possibilities »

Indie Spotlight: “The Incredible Life Of Darrell” Delivers Deadpan Laughs

3 April 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Many web series claim to offer awkward moments from the lives of their protagonists. This week's featured indie series takes that formula one step further: The protagonist is himself a walking, talking awkward moment. Actor Darrell Lake is the creator and star of The Incredible Life of Darrell, which delivers the funny through its deadpan lead.

The Incredible Life of Darrell is set in Wakooki, a fictional Arizona town. Darrell and his friends all grew up together, and that plot point drives a lot of the comedy. In the debut, for example, Darrell has a "Date Night" with his longtime crush (played by Tru Collins of MTV's Awkward), an event that mostly consists of a stilted conversation on the couch.

The decision to introduce characters who have known each other since childhood complements the fact that they are all varying types of grown-up kids. The second episode centers around a »

‘Kevin From Work’ Gets Series Order as ABC Family Expands Comedy Slate

24 March 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

ABC Family has ordered workplace comedy “Kevin From Work” to series, set to premiere this summer. The pickup is a step in the cabler’s expansion into more original scripted comedy.

Kevin From Work” follows Kevin (played by Noah Reid, pictured with Paige Spara), a young man who professes his love to a co-worker Audrey (Spara) in a letter, before accepting another job overseas, thinking he’ll never see her again. When the new offer is rescinded, Kevin has to continue working with Audrey, despite her knowing his true feelings.

“Single camera represents the evolution of our comedy brand,“ Karey Burke, exec VP of programming and development at ABC Family, commented Tuesday. “‘Kevin From Work’ is an endearingly awkward love story — this time from the guy’s point of view.”

The half-hour laffer comes from Barbie Adler (“How I Met Your Mother”), who penned the pilot and will serve as writer on the series. »

Greer Grammer feared Golden Globes Awards 2015 fall

Greer Grammer feared becoming an online laughing stock at the Golden Globe Awards. The 22-year-old actress - the daughter of Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Buckner - handed out the trophies at last night's (11.01.15) ceremony and had been careful to select ''sturdy'' shoes to minimise her chance of falling over. She said of her Jimmy Choo footwear: ''I gotta make sure they're sturdy, they can handle the stage. ''They're ready to make a montage of me just falling and falling and falling and falling, just over and over again. It's something you have dub-stepped to a song of something.'' And the 'Awkward' star had spent hours practicing walking in her shoes ahead of the prestigious show at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. She added to 'Access Hollywood': ''I will not [fall. I've been practicing. We had rehearsals yesterday and I walked in my heels and I think I've got it down. »
