Inside the Emmy Parties: Mptf’s Evening Before, Showtime, NBC, ICM Partners Cap Emmy Eve

25 August 2014 11:47 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Emmy Awards are on NBC at 5 p.m. Monday, but the celebrations start early. Variety will be on hand inside the best parties around Hollywood as the stars mingle, nibble and toast to TV’s finest. Here’s our party report for Sunday, Aug. 24:

11:55 a.m. ICM Partners’ annual brunch has become a welcome respite from the swirl of nighttime events on Emmy weekend. Waiters with cups of Sangria spiked with apple slices and grapes greeted guests on the steps of Chris Silbermann’s Santa Monica home. The brunch  was fantastic — fresh crepes made on the spot, blintzes, all manner of egg dishes and fruit. There’s a reason we skipped breakfast.

12:05 p.m. No ICM Partners brunch is complete without a chat with “Breaking Bad’s” Vince Gilligan and his rep Mark Gordon. Vince was cheery as usual with a pink shirt to match. He »

First teaser for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul

11 August 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

AMC has given Breaking Bad fans our very first look at Better Call Saul with the release of a teaser for the upcoming spin-off – and by teaser, we do mean teaser. It runs for just nine seconds, and features Bob Oedenkirk’s shady lawyer Saul Goodman comparing lawyer’s to health insurance: “You never hope you need it, but man oh man, not having it? No.”

Watch the first teaser here…

Better Call Saul is set to premiere in February 2015, with AMC airing the show in the States and Netflix snapping up the UK rights. Also returning from Breaking Bad is Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehremantraut, along with new cast additions Michael McKean (This Is Spinal Tap), Rhea Seehorn (Whitney), Patrick Fabvian (The Last Exorcism) and Michael Mando (Orphan Black).

Sandra Bullock's 50th Birthday Was a Little Bit Nsfw

28 July 2014 6:57 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sandra Bullock kicked off her birthday celebrations with a fun-filled night on Thursday. The actress joined pals Chelsea Handler and Whitney Cummings at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar in Jackson Hole, Wy, for a night of dancing, where Sandra cozied up to her sister, Gesine Bullock-Prado, for a cute Instagram snap. But the fun really happened on her actual birthday on Saturday, and things got . . . cheeky. When Sandra and her friends posed for a picture, someone bent over and flashed her thong at the camera. Considering that Whitney is the only one whose face is not seen in the pic and she shared one of herself on the hike, our bet is that she's behind the Nsfw mooning. Clearly Sandra shows no signs of slowing down after her 50th bash, and after all of her fun in Hollywood over the years, it's no surprise that she had such a hilarious celebration. »

Interview: Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel on 'Undateable' and The State of TV Comedy

29 May 2014 1:21 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

I interviewed "Undateable" executive producer Bill Lawrence and Adam Sztykiel at a noisy bar in Pasadena shortly before a press conference in mid-April. Going back and transcribing the 35-minute interview is bittersweet. At the time, Lawrence had two shows in limbo -- TBS' "Cougar Town" and Fox's newly premiered "Surviving Jack," which he EPed along with creators Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. While Lawrence wasn't directly involved with "Enlisted," he has a close relationship with "Enlisted" and "Cougar Town" creator Kevin Biegel, whose comedy was newly shelved. Since that time, "Enlisted" and "Surviving Jack" were both cancelled. "Cougar Town" was renewed for a final season on TBS. At the time, Lawrence also wasn't feeling especially confident about "Undateable." The multi-cam sitcom, which features Chris D'Elia as seemingly cocksure ladies man Danny, who mentors the less confident Justin (Brent Morin) and his group of allegedly "undateable" friends.

Review: NBC's 'Undateable' starts off clumsy, but gets better

28 May 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Bill Lawrence is among the smartest producers in TV comedy today, but even smart people make mistakes — sometimes, the same mistakes. Five years ago, Lawrence (who had previously created "Spin City" and "Scrubs") gave us "Cougar Town," a sitcom with an awful title and an awful premise to match. No one much wanted to watch Courteney Cox work her way through a series of interchangeable hot guys in their 20s, and by the middle of the first season, Lawrence and Kevin Biegel had dropped the idea in favor of one that was much lower-concept, but also much more entertaining: just let the very funny people in the cast be funny together. By that point, the title and the memory of those early episodes had proven too big a barrier for (re)entry for many viewers, but "Cougar Town" has been one of TV's better comedies for most of its run, »

Fox has ordered an additional 10 episodes of its multi-cam comedy starring comedian-writer John Mulaney, bringing the total episode order for the series to 16.

Originally developed at NBC last year, the show is produced by Universal Television, Broadway Video and 3 Arts Entertainment. Mulaney, a former “Saturday Night Live” writer, is exec producing with Lorne Michaels, David Miner, Dave Becky and Andrew Singer. Andy Ackerman (“Whitney”) directed the pilot.

Fox’s other comedy orders so far this season are “Last Man on Earth,” starring fellow “SNL” alum Will Forte, and “Weird Loners,” starring “Ugly Betty’s” Becki Newton.

Filmmaker Daryl Wein on Partnering with Vice and At&T for a Short Film, and What Working With Brands Means for Indie Filmmakers

24 April 2014 8:49 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For indie filmmakers who are wondering when and how their big break will come, the route through which to get financing and distribution can be a very troublesome one to say the least. However, independent filmmaker Daryl Wein ("Breaking Upwards," "Lola Versus") has managed to overcome the countless obstacles by working with both Vice and At&T, whose recent partnership aims to break new ground in the digital media world. Wein's past success in the romantic comedy genre may have cemented what seems like a mutually advantageous opportunity whereby product placement plays a role in the creation of his latest short film "Let's Get Digital." Check out the film, which stars Ryan Hansen ("Veronica Mars"), Jon Heder ("Napoleon Dynamite"), Zoe Lister-Jones ("Whitney"), and Megan Ferguson ("Love and Other Drugs"), below: How exactly did you first get involved with the Vice/At&T partnership?

'Friends With Better Lives': James Van Der Beek and Kevin Connolly, 'Friends' by any other name

31 March 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Right after one group of friends signs off, new friends will be introduced ... by a former writer-producer of "Friends," no less.

Immediately following the series finale of CBS' "How I Met Your Mother" Monday (Mar. 31), the network will debut the sitcom "Friends With Better Lives." The premise of longtime acquaintances in amusing situations -- mainly revolving around their differing relationship levels -- may seem familiar, but it's served up by a fresh ensemble cast merging established TV faces and relative newcomers.

Will (played by "Dawson's Creek" alum James Van Der Beek) is struggling to adjust after his recent divorce; Jules (actress-model Brooklyn Decker) is newly engaged to visibly amorous Lowell (Rick Donald); Kate (Zoe Lister-Jones, "Whitney") is a career-driven serial dater; and the married Bobby (Kevin Connolly, "Entourage") and Andi (Majandra Delfino, "Roswell") observe their friends' allegedly better lives somewhat enviously.

Gratified that sitcom-directing master James Burrows ("The Millers," "Will & Grace") guided the premiere, »

Kevin Smith, late-night TV host?

We could easily see that. AMC is developing a late-night talk show titled Hollywood Babble-On, starring Smith and the co-host of his popular podcast, Ralph Garman. AMC also has renewed Smith’s docu-series Comic Book Men for a fourth season. And that’s not all: AMC is  teaming with Smith on the development of a docuseries featuring collector Comic Book Men regular Robert Bruce, following him and other expects as  they comb the country searching real estate sales, auction houses and flea markets to find rare items (sort of like Antiques Roadshow for geeks).

27 January 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Thanks to her sitcom's success, Beth Behrs hardly is broke.

She and Kat Dennings are two of television's most recognizable actresses as the stars of "2 Broke Girls," Mondays on CBS, to the degree they were enlisted as hosts of the network's telecast of the 40th Annual People's Choice Awards recently. (Their series had two nominations, after winning favorite new TV comedy honors its first year.)

In the show's third season, which has seen it return to its original slot after a move to a later time, the lively Behrs still feels good about the weekly misadventures of waitresses, roommates and cupcake-selling entrepreneurs Caroline and Max. "We got shifted around, but I think it's all working out from what I can tell," Behrs, aka "Caroline," tells Zap2it.

The show also has opened up to include a pastry school plot involving recurring guest stars Gilles Marini and Mary-Lynn Rajskub ("24"). "It's so new for Max and Caroline, »

Nothing really surprises Lena Dunham. If you've seen Girls, you know she's seen, imagined, or tried nearly everything. But Justin Bieber's alleged choice of drugs on the wild night that landed him in jail? That little discovery inspired the actress to chime in on the pop star's misfortunes this week. Meanwhile, in an attempt to understand what has led Justin astray, Seth Meyers pinpointed the moment everything went downhill. In other can't-miss tweets, Ellen is cashing in on marijuana trends, and Kelly Osbourne had a pretty crappy time at Barney's. Keep reading to Lol at all that and more! The only crazy part of Justin Bieber arrest is that he was "popping anti-depressants all day."
