‘Saturday Night Live’ Review: Kumail Nanjiani Helps Deliver The Season’s Strongest Episode Yet

15 October 2017 3:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

An actual comedian hosting “Saturday Night Live”? That’s a concept as simple as… Well, as simple as an actual comedian hosting “Saturday Night Live.” While there’s definitely nothing wrong with actors, musicians, etc. hosting the show, there’s typically a better chance for a comedian’s creative voice to come through in a show that’s known for often having a static voice. So it’s no surprise “The Big Sick”/”Silicon Valley”/”Burning Love”/plenty of funny things star Kumail Nanjiani and his voice make the perfect choice for “Saturday Night Live” host.

Of course, you can’t expect any host — comedian or not — to singlehandedly change the structure of the show. Especially when the season is already off to a wobbly start.

Exclusive: From 'Undressed' to 'StartUp,' a Career Retrospective With Adam Brody

28 September 2017 8:03 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

For better or worse, Adam Brody will always be remembered as Seth Cohen from The O.C. The affable and awkward teen is easy to find inside the weathered and wiser 37-year-old Brody, but the San Diego native might never be able to shake his early-aughts pop culture iconography. Despite that infamous role, Brody has had a pretty consistent career over the last two decades, playing opposite Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr. & Mrs. Smith, being directed by famed playwright Neil Labute and making guest appearances on beloved TV shows like House of Lies and The League. This month, he’s in the buddy comedy Big Bear, where he gets to sport a pretty mean mustache, and returns with the second season of StartUp on Crackle. 

With two such diverse roles coming out in the same month and nostalgia for shows like Gilmore Girls and The O.C. at an all-time high, Brody sits down »

‘The Bachelorette’: Why The Show’s Parodies Are Better — Yet Hard to Separate From Reality

30 May 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

A grown man wears a penguin onesie. An gimmicky moron shrieks his catchphrase (which, if you happen to forget it, is emblazoned on his T-shirt). A puppet expresses his existential crisis in French, with subtitles. It sounds like a “Saturday Night Live” sketch, but those are all things that really happened during the season premiere of “The Bachelorette.” You know, the real show.

Even if you’ve never seen a complete episode of either “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette,” ABC’s legendary reality franchises, you probably know them well thanks to the depth of its penetration within pop culture.

June Diane Raphael Is Writing a Book About Women Running for Office

11 May 2017 12:31 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

June Diane Raphael in “Burning Love

June Diane Raphael wants more women to run for political office — so she is writing a book encouraging women to do just that. As People reports, the actress-comedian will pen “Represent: The Badass Woman’s Guide to Running for Office and Changing the World” with Emily’s List Chief of Staff Kate Black. The book will see Raphael and Black coach women on “how a campaign might work in the messiness of their real lives, how to harness their passions/anger/humor/intelligence in public office, and what they actually need on their resumes to lead,” according to its description.

The “Grace and Frankie” actress told People that she’s writing “Represent” because she is tired of the persistent gender gap in politics. “Women represent less than 20 percent of Congress and less than 25 percent of state legislatures,” she explained. “Last time I checked we make up over half the population. I’m no mathematician — despite the rumors — but these numbers are haunting. I’m collaborating with Kate Black on this book because we both truly believe we need our government to reflect the actual population.”

“We can’t look at another photo of a bunch of older white dudes making decisions about women,” Raphael added. Truer words were never spoken.

Per “Represent’s” official synopsis, the guide “acknowledges the barriers standing in front of women [in politics], and helps them jump right over them.” For women who prefer to stay behind-the-scenes, the book “includes information on the next best option — how to support, uplift and nominate other women.”

“Represent” will be published by Workman Publishing and is expected to hit shelves in 2019.

Raphael recently wrapped The Big Hundred Instagram campaign, which saw the actress and her husband, Paul Scheer (“The League”), providing followers “bite-sized” activism tips during the first 100 days of the Trump administration. Raphael’s acting credits include “Veep,” “New Girl,” and “Lady Dynamite.” She is developing “Unhinged,” a Hulu series about a woman with rage problems, with her frequent collaborator Casey Wilson (“Happy Endings”).

Family Comedy from Erica Oyama in Development at Fox

26 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Erica Oyama: Steamy Awards/YouTube

Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon’s “UnREAL” has earned rave reviews for depicting the disturbing drama and ugliness behind the scenes of a “Bachelor”-esque reality show. But before the Lifetime series came along, E!’s “Burning Love” took a more comedic approach to riffing on the long-running Chris Harrison-hosted series. “Burning Love’s” creator, writer, and executive producer, Erica Oyama, has a new project in the works. Deadline reports that she has a half-hour single camera comedy series in development at Fox.

“Based on Oyama’s life, the family comedy centers on Olivia, a single mom who returns to Alabama where her Japanese karate-master father still lives and teaches,” the source summarizes. “She joins the family business while enlisting her father’s help in toughening up her pessimistic nine-year-old son.”

A parody of “The Bachelor” and its spinoffs, “Burning Love” originally debuted on the web on Yahoo! Screen’s Comedy Channel before being picked up by E!. The Emmy-nominated series ran for three seasons. Its rotating cast included Jennifer Aniston, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman (“Billions”), June Diane Raphael (“Grace and Frankie”), and Natasha Leggero (“Another Period”).

“Children’s Hospital,” “Ntsf:sd:suv,” and “The Eric Andre Show” are among Oyama’s other credits.

“It’s just so funny to hear, ‘female comedies are so hot right now,’ because, of course, they’re just comedies that have females in them,” Oyama said in a 2014 interview. “I guess it’s just encouraging that everyone’s sort of like, ‘Yes, these women are hilarious, and we should be watching them as much as we’re watching these guys be ridiculous, too.’ I hope it keeps going. I want to be a part of it, of writing it. Obviously, women are just as funny — it’s such a silly discussion that people are still having,” she emphasized.

Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer’s Latest Digital Comedy Is Go90’s ‘Drive Share’

31 January 2017 2:21 PM, PST | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Since Burning Love burst onto Yahoo in 2012, Jonathan Stern and Keith Quinn have served as executive producers for some of the web’s funniest shows, including Hulu’s Hotwives, Fullscreen’s Filthy Preppy Teen$, and the video on-demand special Beef. These shows have often featured the same comic actors within their respective casts, and two of those stars -- Rob Huebel (Human Giant) and Paul Scheer (The League) -- are the co-creators of Stern and Quinn’s latest concoction, a Go90 series called Drive Share.

Drive Share takes places within the cars-for-hire of a fictional ridesharing app called Drvshr. While that in itself is not the most novel idea for a web series, Drive Share manages to be particularly funny by adopting a “semi-scripted” approach and letting the skills of its talented cast members shine through. The first episode, for example, features Huebel, Love’s Claudia O’Doherty, and several »
