The straight-to-series comedy sees Garner portraying Kathryn Siddell-Bauers, a controlling L.A. Mom who takes part in a camping trip to celebrate the 45th birthday of her husband Walt (Tennant). However, when the camping trip gathers Kathryn’s meek sister, holier than thou ex-best friend and a free-spirited tagalong in one place, it becomes a weekend of tested marriages and woman-on-woman crime that won’t soon be forgotten.
Skye has been cast in the series regular role of Carleen, who has spent her life in the shadows as a sister, as a hospice worker and as an unsuccessful equestrian. It has left her meek, terrified and relying on her own strange passions, like crocheting with polyester yarn, to get her through the lonely days.
The series is based on the U.K. series of the same name created by Julia Davis. It tells

At the Barnard College-based eighth annual celebration of female leadership, organizers and honorees such as J.J. Abrams, Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Barbara Kopple, writer-director Amma Asante and comedian Bridget Everett were wearing black and sporting Time's Up pins.
Abrams told The Hollywood Reporter that the accessory was simply a sign of his belief in the initiative, adding...
Amma Asante has an easy idea to help emerging female filmmakers: bring them to set. More specifically, to her sets, where the “Belle” and “A United Kingdom” filmmaker can assist burgeoning creative minds as they learn the ropes of production. Asante has been quietly mentoring fellow filmmakers this way for years, as part of a grassroots commitment to help raise up the next generation of women in the industry, an initiative she’s happy to carry out without much in the way of publicity or fanfare.
“I’ve made a commitment to ensuring that whenever I’m on set and whenever I’m filming that I always have an emerging female filmmaker there to shadow me,” Asante told IndieWire. “Not to work on the set, because I want them to be able to focus on learning whatever they can,
With that idea in mind, the Athena Film Festival was founded in 2010 by Kathryn Kolbert and Melissa Silverstein in the hopes of seeing more female voices in filmmaking. Finding itself housed out of all-women’s Barnard College’s Athena Center for Leadership Studies, the festival has seen a variety of fearless female filmmakers showcasing their skills to the world.
Among previous participants honored at the festival included Catherine Keener and Courtney Moorehead Balaker, the respective director and writer of Little Pink House – a film in itself featuring a strong lead woman based on the true story of Susette Kelo vs. City of New London. Gloria Steinem and
The Trainwreck star, 36, shared more photos from her surprise nuptials to chef Chris Fischer to Instagram over the weekend, revealing that her sister Kim Caramele was overcome with emotion on the big day.
“Kim crying like a lil baby when she saw me in my dress,” Schumer wrote in the caption, referring to an adorable photo of Caramele with her hand over her heart as she visibly fought back tears.
The comedian chose a traditional white wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier, which was described by the
Written by Rob McEveety and inspired by true events, the film centers on an unhinged oil baron who gets in a bruising standoff with a stubborn farmer after the water on his farm was poisoned by her company.
The first original comedy series to launch on CBS’ streaming service, “No Activity” is set against the world of a major drug cartel bust. It follows two low-level cops who have spent far too much time in a car together; two criminals who are largely kept in the dark; two dispatch workers who haven’t really clicked; and two Mexican tunnelers who are in way too small a space considering they’ve only just met.
The cast of the first season included series co-developer Patrick Brammall along with Tim Meadows, with guest stars Mark Berry, Arturo Castro, Mackenzie Davis, Bridget Everett, Will Ferrell, Darren Gilshenan, Travis Guba, Jake Johnson, Sunita Mani, Jason Mantzoukas, Adrian Martinez, Jesse Plemons, Fred Pohl, Alex Rodriguez, Amy Sedaris, J.K. Simmons, Courtenay Taylor, Michaela Watkins, and Daniel Zolghadri.
The event is set for June 1-3 at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza and Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. Comedy Central has partnered with event firm Superfly to produce the festival.
“After last year’s spectacular success with fans, talent and the entire comedy community, we’d have to be insane to not return for another round,” said Kent Alterman, president of Comedy Central. “While we are concerned anything better than last year might blow Bay Area minds into oblivion, we are prepared to take that chance.”
Other participants will include Jim Jefferies, Third Eye Blind, David Cross, Michael Che, Roy Wood Jr., Maria Bamford, Salt-n-Pepa, Bridget Everett & The Tender Moments, Action Bronson, Desus & Mero, Kyle Mooney & Nathan Fielder’s Video Treasures, This Is Not
Women accounted for just 10 percent of the writers behind 2017’s 100 highest-grossing films. The Athena Iris Screenwriting Lab is designed to help improve this figure and get more female leaders behind the scenes and on-screen. This year’s participants have been announced.
A collaboration between The Athena Film Festival (Aff) and Iris, The Lab consists of two days of intensive script development with industry mentors. The program is designed for female writers who haven’t had a feature-length fictional script produced yet. In order to be eligible, screenplays must be feature-length narratives and include one or more strong female characters in leadership roles at the center of the story.
This year’s Lab Writers are Joy Goodwin, Kellee Terrell, Elizabeth Richardson, and G. Michelle Robinson. Their selected scripts include a portrait of three enslaved men and women in antebellum Maryland, and
