  • Deadline
‘The Cool Kids’ Gets Back 9 Pickup From Fox For Full-Season Order
Fox has picked up nine additional episodes of new multi-camera comedy series The Cool Kids, bringing the full-season order to 22 episodes. It joins its Friday companion, the breakout Last Man Standing revival, which had a full-season 22-episode order from the start.

The Cool Kids has done a respectable job holding onto a significant part of its Last Man Standing lead-in. The Season 7 premiere of the Tim Allen starrer drew a 2.7 Live+7 adults 18-49 rating and 13.4 million multi-platform viewers to date to rank as the most-watched Friday regular comedy telecast on any network in 15 years, and Fox’s most-watched comedy on any night in 4 1/2 years. Leading out of that, the debut of The Cool Kids was the most-watched Friday broadcast comedy debut in almost six years. While both shows slipped in Week 2, Last Man Standing‘s ratings actually ticked up in Week 3 while The Cool Kids stabilized with a very small dip.

"Curb Your Enthusiasm" Season 10 Finally Begins Production

Well this is prettay, prettay, prettay good news: Filming has finally begun on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" Season 10.

HBO confirmed to TheWrap production started Friday, 10 months after the premium cable network announced the Larry David-led series had been renewed. No plot details or premiere date was given for the return of the "Seinfeld" co-creator’s neuroses-laced program.

David’s comedy was renewed for a tenth season by HBO last December, with production set to begin in spring 2018 and a yet-to-be-determined debut date yet given. Obviously, something stalled filming for a bit, but hopefully that doesn’t mean you’ll be waiting six years for another season of "Curb" again.

The Five Best Thriller Movies from 2000-2010

In a big way it seems like thrillers got more and less complicated as the years rolled by. People wanted more of a thrill and less of a neurological chill as they want to think less and feel more. Of course that’s true with everyone but it does seem to be what the masses want at times since the physicality of a thriller can excite people in a way that little else can when it comes to cinema. However banking on just that seems like a bad idea since it seems to invite the idea that there’s no real thought

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Picks TV’s Best Pilots — Turn It On Podcast

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Picks TV’s Best Pilots — Turn It On Podcast
Aline Brosh McKenna has always been a fan of the television pilot. First episodes are tricky, as they have to introduce characters and plot while servicing enough of a story to hook network executives — to pick up the series — and then audiences, to come along for the ride.

“I am really interested as a writer in how you lay out your story and how little you can use to do that,” the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” co-creator told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “A lot of the signature moments in a series happen in the pilot. I definitely am attracted to well-made pilot because it’s also the on-ramp. And I know in our show, the pilot is something we went back to frequently to say, ‘This is where we set the language of the show.'”

McKenna cites the pilots for Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s “Girls” and Vince Gilligan

Matthew Broderick To Be Jackie’s Love Interest on ‘The Conners’ – Also Joining Pamela Adlon’s ‘Better Things’ and Zombie Show ‘Daybreak’
Fans of seeing Matthew Broderick on a TV screen, today you’ve presumably been waiting for.

Good Times at ‘Bad Times at the El Royale’

Earlier this month, the Oxford English Dictionary formally added over one hundred different film words to the English lexicon. Among those lucky few additions were the terms giallo (a slasher-esque Italian horror subgenre), hard R (what Venom was supposed to be rated), Kubrickian (as in the 2001: A Space Odyssey director), kaiju (the Tokyo-sized monsters that Guillermo del Toro is obsessed with) and J-horror (the substrata of horror movies that originated in turn-of-the-century Japan), all of which go a long way to bringing the way people talk about movies to the forefront of the language. One of these newly sacrosanct

Super Deluxe to be Shut Down as Part of Warner-at&T Merger

The latest fallout in the aftermath of the At&T-Time Warner merger is the shuttering of Super Deluxe, the multi-platform digital venture that had been a part of the Turner Entertainment family since 2015.

Citing the company’s achievements over those three years, a WarnerMedia statement outlined reasons for ending its production. “There are now massive changes in the social and mobile-first ecosystem and duplication with other business units in our new WarnerMedia portfolio. Super Deluxe found inspiring ways of connecting with a new generation and many of their best practices will be adopted by other Turner properties as we redirect this investment back into our portfolio,” the statement read.

Super Deluxe had made headway in various corners of the entertainment world, offering up digital series like Dean Fleischer-Camp’s “David” (starring Nathan Fielder) and Sarah Ramos’ “City Girl,” which made IndieWire’s list of the Best Web Series of 2017. Earlier this year,
