‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger

‘Grace and Frankie’ Review: A Strong and Surprising Season 4 Dares to Face Death — and Gives It the Finger
When does a funny story become sad? Typically in television, this kind of question is framed around arrested development: A grown man is still acting like he’s in college, and certain events force him to look himself in the mirror and say, “Getting that drunk and acting that dumb isn’t funny anymore. It’s sad.”

But what if it’s not arrested development? What if it’s unstoppable regression? Continuing its fearless quest to address the anxieties associated with aging, “Grace and Frankie” dares to ask if its characters’ wild misadventures aren’t actually funny anymore. Maybe they’re scary. Maybe these two best friends are losing control of their minds, bodies, and lives. Maybe they don’t even know it’s happening, as it’s happening. Maybe they need help.

The It Crowd getting a U.S. remake at NBC

NBC is hoping it will be third time lucky in its efforts to remake the British sitcom The It Crowd for American audiences, with Variety reporting that the network has tapped original series creator Graham Linehan to write and executive produce a reimagining of the cult show.

The It Crowd premiered on Channel 4 in 2006 and ran for four seasons, followed by a one off special in 2013. The show takes place in the offices of the fictional Reynholm Industries, and featured a cast that included Chris O’Dowd, Richard Ayoade, Katherine Parkinson, and Matt Berry.

NBC originally produced a pilot for a U.S. remake in 2007, with Ayoade starring alongside Joel McHale and Jessica St. Clair, although it failed to move forward. The network took a second stab in 2014, but again the project failed to get off the ground.

In addition to The It Crowd, Linehan’s other credits include Father Ted,

NBC Is Trying To Reboot The It Crowd Yet Again

NBC refuses to give up on adapting The It Crowd for an American audience. On its third attempt to revitalize the British comedy, Deadline writes original series creator Graham Linehan is working on another script in an attempt to make his cult hit franchise a success in the U.S..

NBC first attempted to do this in 2007 and commissioned a pilot featuring Joel McHaleJessica St. Clair, and cast member from the original series Richard Ayoade (far left in the picture). The series never made it to air as new NBC executive Ben Silverman gave it the ax before any episodes could be shown. In 2012 the pilot for the series was leaked online and many who were fans of the original series critiqued it for not being nearly as good.

In 2014 it was announced yet again that an American version of The It Crowd was in development, although nothing has
