Hayley Atwell’s Peggy Carter is trading the mean streets of New York for the bright lights of Los Angeles in season two of “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” and ABC has released the first teaser trailer for the midseason spy series.
While the specific threats that Peggy must face in the new season are being kept under wraps for the time being (this is Marvel, after all), the promo showcases Peggy’s trademark combination of dry British wit and ass-kicking skills, in addition to hinting at a new romance with Reggie Austin’s Jason Wilkes, a quirky but charming scientist.

With a firm premiere date now in place – January 5th, to be specific – Marvel has unveiled the first teaser clip for the hotly-anticipated Agent Carter season 2, which sees Hayley Atwell’s brilliant covert agent descend on Hollywood.
Aiming to retain the stylish aesthetic and brisk, compelling storytelling of its initial run, the show’s sophomore season will continue to explore the battle-tested bond between Peggy and Edwin Jarvis, as played by Broadchurch star James D’Arcy. They’ll reunite once again to foil the dastardly plans pitched by Hydra, along with an impressive cast that includes Chad Michael Murray, Enver Gjokaj, Lyndsy Fonseca and Bridget Regan.
Headed up by showrunners Tara Butters and Michele Fazekas, Agent Carter season 2 isn’t merely changing location ahead of its return, with Marvel welcoming aboard a series of newcomers including Wynn Everett as the nefarious Whitney Frost (Aka Madame Masque), Ken Marino as crime boss Joseph Manfredi, »

I posted my review of Aziz Ansari's "Master of None" last week. Netflix's binge-release business model makes episodic reviews impractical (I've tried a hybrid model with "Orange Is the New Black" the last few seasons, with very mixed success), so I thought I would try something different. You already know my overall thoughts from the prior piece, so I'm going to offer up quick thoughts on each individual episode (with spoilers for all), coming up just as soon as I begin the night with an aggressive Cartman impression... Episode 1: Plan B The broken condom anecdote is pretty terrific and unusual as a way into the Dev/Rachel relationship that will play out over the rest of the season. Like so much of the show, the devil winds up being in the details, like the way the Uber driver is blasting rap music to make things extra uncomfortable for them. »

The character first appeared in "Daredevil" as the costumed villain Blackwing before turning his eye toward a more traditional mob boss role - that latter incarnation likely to form the basis of his 'Carter' appearance.
In the new season, Peggy (Hayley Atwell) must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home - and perhaps even a new love - she's about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.

The cast of Marvel's Agent Carter continues to grow in Season 2 with the addition of Ken Marino. Marino (Childrens' Hospital, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp, Vinyl) will play Joseph Manfredi, a volatile leader in the Maggia crime syndicate who will help Peggy Carter's adversaries further their agenda. Here's what executive producers Tara Butters, Chris Dingess and Michele Fazekas had to say about reuniting with the actor, who they previously worked with on Reaper.
"We've loved working with Ken ever since he played a gay ex-demon for us on Reaper, and we were so happy he was available for this role. His range is incredible - he can go from comedy to romance to drama with ease. Writing for him is easy, because he can do pretty much anything. And he used to have a karaoke room in his house, which makes him even more awesome."

As previously announced, Hanks will be honored with the Trailblazer Award in recognition of his Oscar-winning role as a man grappling with HIV/AIDS in Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia" (1993); Cholodenko is receiving the Visionary Award, which recognizes artistic and creative contributions to Lgbt media visibility, for her myriad Lgbt-oriented films and television efforts (including "The Kids Are All Right"). Presenters this year will be actors Aaron Eckhart and Rosemarie Dewitt. Master of Ceremonies will be comedian Whitney Cummings (whose sarcastic spirit made cancelled NBC sitcom "Whitney" a very guilty pleasure). Grammy winner and Lgbt advocate Linda Perry, most famous for her much-remixed 4 Non Blondes single "What's Up?," will perform at the Legacy Awards. The 2015 Legacy Awards, co-chaired by Dan Bucatinsky, Peter Gal and Ari Karpel, will take place on Thursday, November 5th at performing arts venue Vibiana in downtown Los »
The pressures to succumb to society’s "skinny" standards are greater now than they’ve ever been before. With actresses and models posting pics of their petite figures left and right, it’s easy for women to compare – and resent – their own bods. But Whitney Cummings isn’t about that life. The 32-year-old comedienne took to Instagram today to proudly show off her recent 25 pound weight gain by going topless. And man, does she look awesome. "I did this weird thing that nobody likes to do anymore where I gained weight," she said to Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb on "Today" earlier this week. "I gained like 25 pounds, which I think I needed to." The actress has received a lot of flack from the media for appearing too thin -- something she now says she agrees with. "I was way too skinny before," she continued. "Here’s the thing: When you’re on television, »

As “Mad Men” closes its accounts for the last time, AMC and Film Independent found a unique way to celebrate the Madison Avenue period drama that fans have loved (and sometimes mocked) for seven seasons: Invite Jason Reitman to direct a stage reading of one of the show’s most iconic episodes.
On Sunday night, fans gathered at the Ace Hotel Theatre to watch a reading of the “The Wheel,” the show’s very first season finale in 2007 that earned series creator Matthew Weiner and Robin Veith an Emmy award nomination.
The cast of readers was clearly made up of fans. Kevin Pollack, shoes in hand, appeared on stage to read the part of Bert Cooper (played by Robert Morse on the show) while Colin Hanks — who actually appeared in season two of the show — came with a drink in hand to play Jon Hamm’s boozing Don Draper.

If the departure of How I Met Your Mother left you with a yearning for shows that are half single-cam, half multi-cam, NBC just picked up the show for you: People Are Talking, which is not a Harry Nilsson biopic, but instead a half-hour sitcom that follows two "wildly outspoken" couples who have long conversations about "sex and race, [and] the fact that the trusted new babysitter might just be a porn star." Those couples will be made up of Frankin & Bash's Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Being Human's Meaghan Rath, Whitney's Tone Bell, and Grey's Anatomy's Bresha Webb; Himym vet Pam Fryman is directing the pilot. Will there be flashbacks? »

Most recently, Sanchez-Witzel was a co-exec producer on Fox’s “New Girl.” Prior to that, she was under an overall deal with CBS Studios, where she worked on sitcom “The Millers,” plus her own development. For six seasons she has also been working with NBC, where she was a co-exec producer and consultant on “Whitney,” “Love Bites,” “100 Questions” and “My Name Is Earl.”
“Our relationship with Danielle dates all the way back to ‘My Name Is Earl,’ and she’s been doing terrific work for us on ‘New Girl’ this season,” said Jonnie Davis, Twentieth Century Fox Television president of creative affairs. “When we found out there »

Whitney Cummings is returning to television. After co-creating CBS's "2 Broke Girls" (still going strong) and creating/starring in NBC's "Whitney" (canceled after two seasons), Cummings is heading to cable. The comedienne will headline her own HBO stand-up special and is currently developing a new series, which has received a pilot order from the premium cable network. Based on Maureen Dowd's "Are Men Necessary?: When Sexes Collide," the half-hour comedy is described as "a comedic portrait of modern relationships that focuses on human nature and social construction using documentary elements and appearances from experts to help the characters understand the biological basis of their behavior." Cummings will star as well as executive produce in the new series alongside Dowd. Her stand-up special will air in Fall 2016. [via Deadline]

Are men necessary? Whitney Cummings wants to find out, and HBO wants to help her do so.

"I'm totally crushing it as a dude." Following the first mildly amusing trailer for Hot Pursuit, our friends from across the pond have just gotten a new trailer for the comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara in what's basically their own version of Midnight Run meets The Heat. There's a bunch more new footage in this UK trailer that we didn't see in the Us trailer, including new stuff with comedian Jim Gaffigan. Plus, there's a scene where Witherspoon has to dress up like a man, and ends up looking like Justin Bieber. I feel like this just might be a little too silly, but it doesn't look downright terrible. Watch? Here's the new UK trailer for Anne Fletcher's Hot Pursuit from Warner Bros. UK: You can still watch the first trailer for Hot Pursuit right here. Hot Pursuit is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses) and »

"We have been set up, shot at and hunted down." If you watched The Heat and thought to yourself, "Hey, I wish this was more like Midnight Run," then we have some good news for you. Hot Pursuit stars Reese Witherspoon as a feisty, uptight police officer tasked with escorting the widow/potential witness (Sofia Vergara) in an important investigation of a drug lord. But of course, shit goes down, and the two are forced to go on the run. Witherspoon and Vergara seem like a fun enough mismatched pair, but the comedy is a little broad, though I do like the bit about the news messing up their height and age respectively. Watch! Here's the first trailer for Anne Fletcher's Hot Pursuit from YouTube: Hot Pursuit is directed by Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses) and written by David Feeney ("New Girl") and John Quaintance ("Whitney"). An uptight and »

If you're like us and value your sleep, you probably nodded off into your Ambien dreamland before the party started on post-prime time TV. Don't worry; we've got you covered. Here's the best of what happened last night on late night.
Jamie Dornan of "Fifty Shades of Grey" was on "The Tonight Show" Monday night (charming guy, but not into the beard - not that anyone asked) and he and Jimmy Fallon played "Fifty Accents of Grey." They were given an accent (Scottish, French, Italian, Cowboy...) and had to read real passages from the book in the accent assigned. Somehow they managed to make "Fifty Shades" even more ridiculous, but it's not like anyone was confusing it with Proust. (Jamie's panties quote was said with a French accent.)
