Kyra Sedgwick Talks ‘Controversial’ Fashion and Becoming a ‘More Authentic Self’
First-time director Kyra Sedgwick — who scored four Emmy nods and one win for playing Brenda Leigh Johnson on “The Closer” — saw something in “Story of a Girl” others didn’t. “The experience of being in a very complicated family … and feeling a lot of self-doubt and shame and searching for myself, that’s something that is a lifelong process,” she says of her Lifetime film. She’s also navigated the style world: “When I first started out in this business, no one thought about fashion, but I have to say that dressing up … is fun.”

Netflix’s ‘6 Balloons’ Trailer: Abbi Jacobson is Desperate to Help Her Drug-Addicted Brother, Dave Franco — Exclusive
Abbi Jacobson has lately spent off-weeks from Comedy Central’s “Broad City” giving dramatic, festival-friendly performances. Last year she co-starred in the Sundance premiere “Person to Person” alongside Michael Cera and Tavi Gevinson. This week she was at SXSW for the debut screening of “6 Balloons,” a forthcoming Netflix feature from writer-director Marja-Lewis Ryan.

Seven-time Emmy nominee Jane Kaczmarek plays their mother. The actors were cast in October 2016.

Who ‘Mr. Robot’ Is Really Attacking, And R.I.P. ‘The Get Down’ — The Week in Showrunner Tweets
One fascinating aspect of today’s media landscape is that many creators and executive producers enjoy using Twitter to engage with their audiences, share behind-the-scenes information about their shows, chat about politics, and otherwise communicate about what matters to them. So, each week, we’ll compile some of our favorite exchanges representing the wide variety of discourse seen on social media.

Chips Review

Let’s be clear. Any attempt to adapt a television series for the big screen is inherently an effort to wring an influx of cash out of an often-dormant property, leveraging name recognition in the hopes that it will translate into solid box office. Rarely is such a move inspired by any real necessity or sharp creative vision, and perhaps this overt disinterest in reviving a beloved show with an infusion of fresh ideas is why we have far more films like Bewitched and Lost in Space and far fewer like Mission: Impossible and The Addams Family, both of which reinvigorated their respective franchises decades after the shows went off the air.

One approach that filmmakers have routinely taken in recent years is to apply a comedic lens to properties like Starsky and Hutch and 21 Jump Street. Chips – the latest film based on a popular TV series – takes a similar route.

Movie Review – Chips (2017)

Chips, 2017.

Written and Directed by Dax Shepard.

Starring Dax Shepard, Michael Pena, Jessica McNamee, Kristen Bell, Ryan Hansen, Vincent D’Onofrio, Adam Brody, Maya Rudolph, Ben Falcone, Justin Chatwin, Rosa Salazar, Isiah Whitlock Jr., and Jane Kaczmarek.

Synopsis:

A rookie officer is teamed with a hardened pro at the California Highway Patrol, though the newbie soon learns his partner is really an undercover Fed investigating a heist that may involve some crooked cops.

Chips opens with a message explaining to viewers that the actual California Highway Patrol is not associated with this reboot of the semi-popular television series (it ran throughout the 70s and 80s), and to be honest, why would they want to? This comedy is straight-up lowest common denominator trash that is agonizing torture to sit through for 100 minutes. Dax Shepard is responsible for producing, writing, directing, and starring (as Jon Baker) in this new take on the property,

‘Chips’ Review: Dax Shepard’s 1970’s TV Reboot Is Offensive and Awful

‘Chips’ Review: Dax Shepard’s 1970’s TV Reboot Is Offensive and Awful
It’s hard to pinpoint when Dax Shepard’s “Chips” takes a sharp turn into indefensibly racist humor, but one place to start would be a passing reference to Michael Peña as “the little brown one.” It’s not the only cringe-worthy moment.

It may be unfair to pigeonhole Shepard as endorsing ugly stereotypes, even if he did write, produce, and direct a movie that derives 90 percent of its humor from gay jokes, race jokes, and punchlines about attractiveness that basically amount to a beta version of the pre-Facebook website “Hot or Not.” But they’re all there, in this overblown and completely baffling adaptation of a 1970’s TV series that literally nobody asked for.

First Chips Movie Trailer and Poster Show That It's Nothing Like The 80s TV Show

These aren’t the CHiPs your dad watched decades ago.

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, the first trailer of Chips was revealed, which stars Dax Shepard and Michael Pena as the buddy motorcycle cops.

The trailer shows lots of jokes, fun and plenty of raunchiness. They’re not quite the cool and serious Poncherello and Baker from the television show.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Jon Baker and Frank “Ponch” Poncherello have just joined the California Highway Patrol (Chp) in Los Angeles, but for very different reasons. Baker is a beaten up pro moterbiker trying to put his life and marriage back together. Poncherello is a cocky undercover Federal agent investigating a multi-million dollar heist that may be an inside job—inside the Chp. The inexperienced rookie and hardened pro are teamed together, but clash more than click, so kickstarting a partnership is easier said than done. But with Baker’s
