Jordan Peele developing Nazi hunting drama

24 September 2017 9:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Get Out director Jordan Peele has set his first project under a new TV development deal with Sonar Entertainment, with THR reporting that he is developing a 1970s-set Nazi hunting drama entitled The Hunt, which is being scripted by David Weil.

The potential series is based on true events and “follows a diverse band of Nazi hunters in 1970s America as they set out on a quest for revenge and justice — tracking and killing hundreds of Nazis who, with the unconscionable help of the U.S. government, escaped justice and embedded themselves in American society.”

After starring in comedy shows such as Key and Peele and MADtv, Peele made his feature directorial debut earlier this year with the acclaimed horror Get Out, which went on to gross over $250 million worldwide from a budget of just $4.5 million. »

Jordan Peele Is On ‘The Hunt’ For Nazis

21 September 2017 7:47 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Thanks to the huge success of “Get Out,” Jordan Peele has quickly established himself as one of this year’s biggest movers and shakers in the film world. The actor and director certainly conquered television thanks to “Key and Peele,” but his breakout horror hit showed he had a lot more gifts to share. And while his next feature isn’t due in cinemas until 2019, he’s flexing the creative clout he has in Hollywood.

‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ Is the Best Sketch Show on American TV, and It Was Made by Four Canadian Women Over Forty

7 September 2017 11:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For too long, American sketch comedy has been so dominated by “Saturday Night Live” that any other attempts at the form have seemed futile. The trick to not competing directly with the NBC behemoth seems to be to addressing a niche audience that is sorely underserved by the mainstream, such as Comedy Central’s “Key and Peele,” IFC’s “Portlandia,” and now, the brilliant “Baroness Von Sketch Show,” also on IFC. The network bought the series from the CBC, and has been airing the first two seasons for American audiences who are hungry for something different.

Now in the middle of its IFC run, “Baroness Von Sketch Show” is written and performed by Aurora Browne, Meredith MacNeill, Carolyn Taylor, and Jennifer Whalen. Browne, Taylor, and Whalen met at Second City in Toronto, and MacNeill is a classically trained actor who came to comedy after studying at Rada. While the show has a decidedly woman-centric bent, »

Nathan Fielder: How The Cult Comedian Rules the Outer Limits of Awkward

7 September 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Comedy has taken Nathan Fielder to some pretty strange places, but nothing quite compares to the time he found himself walking a high wire between two seven-story buildings in downtown L.A. It was the finale of the third season of Nathan for You, the hit Comedy Central series in which Fielder offers preposterously elaborate assistance to small-business owners and other regular folks. For this episode, he took on his biggest project yet: transforming a deeply nerdy, semi-employed man who lives with his parents into a genuine hero. Fielder assumed the identity of Corey Calderwood, »

Brenda Song, Jason Biggs to Star in Freeform’s ‘Angry Angel’ (Exclusive)

17 August 2017 12:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brenda Song and Jason Biggs will star in the Freeform original Christmas movie “Angry Angel,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The film, which began production this week in Toronto, follows a young woman turned angel, Allison Pyke (Song), who is stuck on Earth and can’t seem to do what is required in order to get into heaven. When the love of her life, Patrick (Ricky Mabe), shows up in New York City, it complicates Pyke’s journey, as well as frustrates her angel mentor Jason Biggs (Biggs). The not-so-merry situation also turns into an unexpected love-triangle with her friend with sometimes benefits, Barker (Andy Favreau). The film will also star Andrew Bachelor.

Freeform was formerly ABC Family and is part of the Disney-abc television group. Song has a long history with Disney television, having starred in “The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” and “The Suite Life on Deck.” She has also appeared on “Key and Peele,” “Scandal »

Exclusive: ‘Baroness von Sketch Show’ Co-Creator Carolyn Taylor Finds the Funny in Life's Absurdities

15 August 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Cult comedy Baroness von Sketch Show may already be on its second season in its native Canada, but U.S. audiences are getting the chance to catch up on all the laughs now that the show is airing on IFC.

With shows like Portlandia, The Birthday Boys and Comedy Bang! Bang!, the network has been a haven for quirky, creative sketch comedy, but Baroness is a welcome niche in the crowded field: four women over 40 skewering the absurdities of everyday life. Where many other sketch shows are wildly over-the-top or lean towards bonkers scenarios, actor-writers Carolyn Taylor, Aurora Browne, Jennifer Whalen and Meredith MacNeill take things far enough to be hilarious, but not so insane that scenes are unrelatable.

‘Get Out’ Is The Most Profitable Movie Of 2017 So Far

4 August 2017 1:24 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

First-time director Jordan Peele, one-half of the comedic duo Key and Peele, had the time of his life messing with our heads this past spring with the horror-satire “Get Out.” The clever film packed plenty of tension, but also found a way to skewer and make critical insights about the race relations in America. “Get Out” wasn’t just a horror comedy, but it was filled with political fireworks that made it a lot more nuanced and thought-provoking than your average B-movie flick.

Keegan-Michael Key Resurrects Obama’s Anger Translator Luther to Rant About Trumpcare

18 July 2017 7:17 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

We miss the Comedy Central sketch series “Key and Peele” for no shortage of reasons, but high up on the list was Luther, as the “Obama’s Anger Translator” sketches might have been one of pop culture’s most coherent and wise takes on President Obama during his years in office.

The sketch concept didn’t officially retire after the end of the series in 2015, but it’s only reappeared irregularly — like, say, during a talk show appearance Keegan-Michael Key (who, as Luther, voiced the more angry side of Obama) made during this interview on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

Earning one Emmy nomination is honor enough for any actor, but some are lucky enough to earn multiple bids in a single year.

Film Review: ‘Becks’

28 June 2017 5:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Becks” is the kind of modest, non-earthshaking indie enterprise that ends up being so satisfying mostly because it’s about a character type familiar from real life but all too under-represented at the movies. In this case, that’s a woman — played with consummate lived-in assurance by Broadway veteran Lena Hall — whose primary personality traits would be considered banally typical if she were a slacker-type dude, yet they can still seem exotic and frightening to some when they come in the form of a young lesbian.

A not-yet-successful musician who parties too hard, horndogs too much and seeks gainful employment too little, Becks (née Rebecca) might be a staple in any gay scene. Still, she remains a stubborn outsider in the hometown she’s been forced back to in Elizabeth Rohrbaugh and Daniel Powell’s narrative feature debut. What happens during her stay there is not particularly surprising or original, but »

HBO Has Ordered A Series From Jordan Peele!

16 May 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Jordan Peele is hot, hot, hot right now! After attaining fame in Comedy Central's popular sketch show, Key and Peele, Jordan Peele and Keegen-Michael Key were catapulted into movies, starting with Keanu. Keanu's success is nothing compared to that of Peele's smash hit Get Out, which he wrote and directed. The film earned Peele's production company, Monkeypaw Productions, a first-look film deal with Universal Pictures. Now it looks like Peele is returning his sights to the land of TV.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that HBO has given Lovecraft Country a straight-to-series order. Peele's Monkeypaw Productions is creating the show with J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions and Warner Bros. Television, based on the 2016 novel Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff. The hour-long series will be written by Misha Green, executive producer on Underground. She will also serve as the showrunner.

Do We Really Need Coming to America 2?

7 May 2017 11:20 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1980s seem to have come back in an odder way than we could have ever imagined. In 2017, we have a President who is a former reality TV star. In the 1980s, we had a President who was a former actor. Today, we have social media running our lives and giving us innumerable ways to compete with each other. In the 1980s, MTV had us under its thumb. It made us compete with one other about being the first to see the new media known as music videos. And now, in 2017, there's talk of Eddie Murphy writing and actually making a sequel to 1988's wildly successful Coming to America, which, like the first movie, will be released by Paramount Pictures.

Today's cinematic landscape is mired in nostalgia. For most of the 1990s and 2000s, we had films that looked back fondly (and not so fondly) at the go-go times of the 1970s. »

‘Get Out’ Opens Hollywood’s Doors for a Promising Director: Here’s Why Jordan Peele Should Be Wary

4 May 2017 8:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

It was only a matter of time before Jordan Peele signed a flashy first-look deal with a major studio. Peele’s directorial debut “Get Out” has taken in $195 million at the worldwide box office on a budget of roughly $5 million, and his deft handling of racial issues within the horror-thriller genre has put him in a class of storytelling all by himself. “Get Out” distributor Universal Pictures now has a two-year overall production deal with Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions, giving the studio the rights to his untitled social thriller that he will write, direct and produce.

Get Out Director Jordan Peele Selects His Next Project

3 May 2017 12:15 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Who would’ve thought that Jordan Peele of Key and Peele fame would have had such an amazingly strong directorial debut with the horror film Get Out. Now, that’s not to say we didn’t expect the film to be good. Given his track record and sensibilities, we expected it to do pretty well. However, the film went on to be the best reviewed film of the year.

Out of 233 reviews, all but one were positive. Of course, this led to a very strong box office performance, and the film ended up taking in nearly $200 million on its miniscule $4.5 million budget. Without a doubt, Peele seems destined for great things, and there were rumors circulating that he may be up to helm the eventual Akira adaptation, but it sounds like those talks amounted to nothing.

According to a press release from Universal Pictures, Peele is working on another “socially-conscious” thriller for his next film. »
