Showtime Orders Don Cheadle, Andrew Rannells, Regina Hall Comedy ‘Black Monday’ to Series
Showtime has given a series order to the comedy series “Black Monday.”

The show, which was ordered to pilot under the name “Ball Street,” goes back to October 19, 1987 – aka Black Monday, the worst stock market crash in the history of Wall Street. To this day, no one knows who caused it…until now. It’s the story of how a group of outsiders took on the blue-blood, old-boys club of Wall Street and ended up crashing the world’s largest financial system, a Lamborghini limousine, Don Henley’s birthday party, and the glass ceiling.

Dog Days Teaser Trailer Hopes To Sell Relationships With Cute Overload

Dog Days may seem like a film that screams to be dismissed out of hand, assuming you aren’t instantly sold on all things dog related, but when you look at it a little closer you see that this one might actually be a lot of fun. First, and easiest to miss, it’s directed by Ken Marino, who you know from all sorts of things, including Children’s Hospital. It isn’t perhaps a guarantee that this is a winner, but if he’s involved there is something about the comedic sensibility that is worth giving the benefit of doubt. Beyond Marino, the film has a cast that is worth noticing, even if the teaser trailer wants to focus on all the dogs and more generally the angsty antics of the film’s dog owners. The film stars Nina Dobrev, Vanessa Hudgens, Adam Pally, Eva Longoria, Rob Corddry, Tone Bell,

Star Trek: Discovery Season 2 Adds Tig Notaro As Guest Star

Season 2 of CBS All Access’ Star Trek: Discovery will bring stand-up comedian Tig Notaro on board for a guest starring role, though she probably will be too busy to deliver too many punchlines. The series is busy prepping for its next run of episodes and has been busy making deals in the offseason, adding more familiar faces to the cast and casting at least one major character from Star Trek lore with former Inhumans star Anson Mount stepping in as Captain Pike. In addition to performing stand-up, Notaro is a regular fixture in both film and television, having had roles on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, TV Land’s The Jim Gaffigan Show, and Netflix’s recently canceled Lady Dynamite. She’s also had roles in films like Walk of Shame, as well as Lake Bell’s In a World, and can be seen in the upcoming Dog Days,

‘Disjointed’ Trailer: Kathy Bates Lights Up Again in New Season of Netflix’s Stoner Comedy
Pivoting off of the success of the Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda vehicle “Grace and Frankie,” Netflix is filling out its roster of comedies starring beloved older actresses with stoner sitcom “Disjointed.” In it, Kathy Bates plays Ruth a former advocate for legalizing marijuana who opens a dispensary in Los Angeles with the help of her son. The newly released trailer promises plenty of high-induced hijinks, with Ruth parading around in a weed-adorned headdress in an epic 4/20 celebration. “Wet Hot American Summer” star Ken Marino makes a guest appearance in the trailer, although his wig-choice seems questionable at best.

Critics Pick the Best Scripted Sports Shows Ever — IndieWire Survey

Critics Pick the Best Scripted Sports Shows Ever — IndieWire Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which is your favorite scripted TV show about sports? Old and current shows are fair game.

June Thomas (@junethomas), Slate

I was a big fan of the Freeform show “Make It or Break It,” about the lives of a group of elite gymnasts working toward their dream of competing in the Olympics. Even typing that sentence, I know how hokey it sounds, and yes, it touched on all the clichés about women’s gymnastics – eating disorders, overburdened parents, inappropriate relationships with coaches – but you know what, all those things bubble up in the real sport with depressing regularity.

The show had more than its fair share
