“It’s like how I love when I see a diner and it’s just called ‘Food,'” said executive producer Judd Apatow, speaking to IndieWire with stars Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs. “No need to come up with a fancy name.”
“You can’t get angry,” Rust added. “They’re like, ‘Hey, we promised food.'”
In a similar fashion, with the title “Love,” Apatow, Rust, and co-creator Lesley Arfin have promised to depict that most complex yet most simple of human emotions on the screen. But they don’t promise a happy ending, which makes the quasi-comedy at times a nerve-wracking experience. Perhaps that’s because the show remains firmly grounded in the real world, where happy endings are rarely a guarantee.

Life after college graduation is not exactly going as planned for Will and Jillian who find themselves lost in a sea of increasingly strange jobs. But with help from their family, friends and coworkers they soon discover that the most important (and hilarious) adventures are the ones that we don’t see coming.
Get a Job‘s very first joke is a freeze-frame shot of Miles Teller’s character as a child, surrounded by his family on the toilet after dropping his first deuce, delivering a voiceover monologue about receiving congratulations and physical rewards for every non-accomplishment in life.
The first produced screenplay by Kyle Pennekamp and Scott Turpel may well have seemed bright and busy on paper, but the end result looks all too much like
“Funny or Die Presents America’s Next Weatherman” is set to bow at 11 p.m. Aug. 8. The series will feature a competition among 12 contestants — male and female — to win $100,000 and the chance to deliver a weather report on CNN’s “New Day” morning show.
The series will put a comedic twist on reality-competition tropes but producers emphasized that the competition is genuine. TBS has ordered eight episodes. Matt Oberg (“The Comedians,” “The Mindy Project”) is set as host.
“America’s Next Weatherman” promises to take “everything we know — or think we know — about weathercasters and then uses it to put 12 competitors through the wringer for a chance at the big time,” said David Eilenberg, senior VP of unscripted development, latenight and specials for TBS and TNT.

Do you remember how last season’s Girls run ended? Well this season things culminated in an entirely different tone. This time, there were no grand gestures or fireworks. Season three isn’t quite as dark as season two, but man is the finale rough. If the season two finale frustrated fans because it suggested that Hannah might be too dependent on the man in her life, the season three finale seems intent on underlining that Hannah’s ready to move on, with or without Adam. And she isn’t the only one moving on, but she seems to be the only one moving in the right direction: Hannah gets into the country’s best grad school, Adam gives a truly “bad” performance in his Broadway debut, Marnie finds herself in another destructive relationship, Shosh
NBC has released the first episode of "The Hapley Group," their "Parks and Recreation" digital series meant to satisfy fans' cravings while the sitcom breaks for the Winter Olympics and, boy, is it a heaping helping of Hapley.
In the episode, everyone's favorite newscaster (played by Jay Jackson) sits down with some of Pawnee's brightest luminaries -- Joan Callamezzo (Mo Collins), Crazy Ira (Matt Besser), The Douche (Nick Kroll) and a new character, conservative pundit Mike Patterson (Seth Morris), host of "Eagleton Now" -- to chew the fat on the topics of the day.
Not only do we learn that Perd believes Obamacare is short for Alabamacare, but we're also treated to a commercial for the Pawnee Farmers' Market After Dark, featuring the sultry Chardbodies.
This month NBC will roll out original Web series based on characters from “Chicago Fire,” “Parks and Recreation,” “Grimm” and “Parenthood,” airing them on NBC.com, Hulu and YouTube.
“Chicago Fire” leads things off on Tuesday with a four-part digital series titled “I Am a Firefighter.” It follows Monica Raymond’s Dawson, who must put her training and confidence to the test when she is alone in the station during an emergency.
“Parenthood’s” digital series actually celebrates a former NBC show: “Friday Night at the Luncheonette,” which debuts Thursday, features guest stars Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips who reprise their “Friday Night Lights” roles when “Parenthood’s” Amber (Mae Whitman) is tasked
NBC announced on Monday (Feb. 10) that "Parenthood" would be getting a four-part digital series, "Friday Night at the Luncheonette," as a way of keeping viewers engaged in the series during the 2014 Winter Olympics hiatus. The series will follow Amber (Mae Whitman) as she watches after cousin Max (Max Burkholder) while working after hours at the studio.
During her adventures, "Fnl" stars Jesse Plemons and Derek Phillips reprise their roles of Landry Clarke and Billy Riggins, respectively, showing up as the band Crucifictorious. (And presumably explaining how Billy came to be part of the band.) Phillips has appeared on "Parenthood" as a different character in the past, so continuity sticklers would be advised to look the other way.
"Go On" (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. Et on NBC), which stars Matthew Perry as a grief-group participant, has blossomed into an enjoyable little gem. I won't make any grand claims for "Go On" -- it's still way too early for that -- but what's reassuring is that I don't think the NBC comedy would make any grand claims for itself. "Go On" is just plugging along and using the strengths of its star and its talented ensemble cast judiciously to create comedy that is melancholy, surreal and pleasingly goofy. I'm eager to see more (like "Mindy," "Go On" has gotten a full-season order).
"The Mindy Project" (Tuesdays at 9:30 p.m. Et on Fox), on the other hand, is a puzzling disappointment. It's not a good
Premieres: Tuesdays September 11 at 9Pm on NBC (Global in Canada).
In A Nutshell: A group of wacky misfits are brought together each week by their study group… er, support group. (Just try to not compare it to a tamer Community. Double-dog dare you.)
Names You’ll Know: Something tells us you’ve heard of this young upstart, Matthew Perry (Friends), who plays sportscaster Ryan King. Laura Benanti (The Playboy Club) is the leader of the group, while such kinda-familiar faces as Julie White (Grace Under Fire), Tyler James White (Everybody Hates Chris), Sarah Baker (In Gayle We Trust) and Seth Morris (Children’S Hospital) comprise his fellow transitioners, as they’re known. On the work front,
From first glance, this show is seemingly a tired retread of a lot of things we’ve seen before, with no real addition.
Much of that credit goes to host and creator Scott Aukerman, who has a unique perspective informed by his time as a writer and sometime cast member on the seminal Mr. Show, and his years spent developing CBB from a weekly stage show, to a local Los Angeles radio program (Comedy Death Ray Radio), to a popular podcast, and now to television. Throughout that time, Aukerman has cultivated meaningful relationships with seemingly everyone in the comedy community,
