New trailer for AMC’s Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul

23 December 2014 2:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We’ve seen a few brief teasers [see here and here], a behind-the-scenes featurette [see here], and even a music video [see here], but now we have our first real look at Vince Gilligan’s Better Call Saul with a trailer for the upcoming Breaking Bad spin-off, which you can check out below…

Set six years before Saul Goodman meets Walter White. When we meet him, the man who will become Saul Goodman is known as Jimmy McGill, a small-time lawyer searching for his destiny, and, more immediately, hustling to make ends meet. Working alongside, and, often, against Jimmy, is “fixer” Mike Ehrmantraut, a beloved character introduced in ‘Breaking Bad.’ The series will track Jimmy’s transformation into Saul Goodman, the man who puts “criminal” in “Criminal lawyer.” The series’ tone is dramatic, wove with dark humor.

Better Call Saul will premiere on February 8th, with a cast that includes the returning Bob Odenkirk as Jimmy McGill / Saul »

Aziz Ansari on Playing Madison Square Garden and the Last Season of Parks and Recreation

8 October 2014 1:15 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Tomorrow night, Aziz Ansari will perform two stand-up comedy shows at Madison Square Garden in front of more than 10,000 people, a truly impressive feat. (One could count the number of stand-up comedians who have played Msg on two hands.) Vulture spoke with Ansari about the immensity of the task and the last season of Parks and Recreation.I've heard that you really responded to our Sarah SilvermanWhitney Cummings interview, in which Whitney talked about how people always ask her if she's working on a movie, like that's the be-all, end-all. I just remembered that chunk when they were talking about doing stand-up versus movies. It was just an interesting perspective that you don't hear as much. It's kind of how I feel about movies. Whenever I have a hiatus from Parks, I usually face this option of, "Okay, well here's a couple movies you can maybe do." And I'm »

'Bad Judge' taps Betsy Thomas to showrun after Liz Brixius' departure

17 September 2014 12:07 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Bad Judge has found a new showrunner: Betsy Thomas has been tapped to takeover duties for Liz Brixius, who exited the new NBC comedy earlier this month, EW has confirmed.

The series stars Private Practice alum Kate Walsh as a respected judge whose personal life is often messier than the criminals she sentences. Will Ferrell, Anne Heche, Adam McKay, Jill Messick, and Walsh are executive producers.

Thomas (Whitney, My Boys) joined the comedy after four episodes had been filmed, but the showrunner swap isn’t expected to impact the show’s Oct. 2 (9 p.m. on NBC) launch, according to Deadline, »

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 »

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?
