‘The Simpsons’: Gal Gadot Plays Herself In Season Premiere Episode ‘Bart’s Not Dead’ — Exclusive First Look
The Simpsons” takes on the recent trend of religious films at the box office in the show’s Season 30 premiere, “Bart’s Not Dead.” The episode features several guest vocal stars, including “Wonder Woman’s” Gal Gadot. Scroll down below for a first look at Gadot, playing herself — auditioning for a role in “Bart’s Not Dead,” a religious film being spearhead by Ned Flanders (naturally) and Homer Simpson (really).

In the episode, which premieres Sunday, Sept. 30, at 8 p.m. Et on Fox, Bart ends up in the hospital after taking a dare and jumping off the Springfield dam. At Homer’s urging, Bart claims he went to Heaven and met Jesus — and that attracts Christian producers to offer the Simpsons a movie deal, which they turn into the religious film “Bart’s Not Dead” (a riff on the real box office hit “God’s Not Dead”).

A Look at Ecam Incubator Documentary Project ‘The Garcias’

San Sebastian — Part of The Screen’s Incubator – a new initiative from Madrid-based film school Ecam intended to promote the production of feature films and develop emerging talent – Paco Nicolás’ “The Garcias” received a €10,000 grant to be used in the production of the family reunion-themed documentary.

In Spain series like “The Middle” and “The Goldbergs” dominate the daytime airwaves, with “The Simpsons” occupying an arguably larger part of modern Spanish culture than it does in the States – for decades “Los Simpson” has been on every day, year round during Spain’s famous siesta hour.

That penchant for family entertainment representing a bygone era is something that Nicolás will look to tap into with his found-footage documentary “Los Garcia.” That and the ever-present meme of recreated family photos mixed with last year’s Goya and Karlovy Vary winner for best documentary, the similarly-Spanish “Lots of Kids, a Monkey and a Castle.

How 'The Simpsons' Crowned Its Summer Box Office Champion

Ryan Koh has just secured his place alongside a group of legends from The Simpsons — but this has nothing to do with Bart, Homer, Lisa or any of the Springfield gang.

Instead, Koh, a writer and executive producer on the Fox animated series, just earned a first-place finish in staff’s uber-competitive fantasy summer box office league. As part of the prize, Koh was gifted a bold red sign that sits in front of his parking spot that reads “Simpsons Box Office Champion” and gets his name added to a banner hanging from the ceiling in the staff office....

‘BoJack Horseman’ Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg on the Show’s 10 Biggest Influences

Of the approximately 953 shows Netflix has debuted in the last five years, BoJack Horseman is far and away the best. The animated story of a half-man, half-horse former sitcom star grappling with depression, alcoholism and his own shrinking fame has also been one of the best shows on all of television for each of its first four seasons. That streak continues with Season Five, which debuts on September 14. I’ve seen all 12 episodes (and will be writing about the best and most unconventional of those a few days after premiere

Toronto: Correspondences #5 — Present Portraits, Grand Illusions

The Notebook is covering Tiff with an on-going correspondence between critics Kelley Dong and Daniel Kasman.Monrovia, IndianaDear Kelley,I'm glad you were delighted by A Star Is Born, a film I admit I reserve considerable skepticism for due to my love of the Janet Gaynor and Frederic March version from the '30s—as well as because I'm still lamenting the fact that Clint Eastwood's production, which was to star Beyoncé, never got made. I first need to see the Barbara Streisand version before catching the new one, but isn't it strange and wonderful how many times and through such different eras this story has been told? I look forward to this 2018 one and wonder what kind of artist the inevitable 2050 remake will revolve around—one can only hope some kind of populist A.I. hologram.But back to the present epoch, one which, from the looks of the films I've seen,

‘Rick And Morty’ Wins Outstanding Animated Program Amidst Dan Harmon Controversy – Emmys
First-time Outstanding Animated Program Emmy nominee Rick and Morty won their first trophy at the Creative Arts Emmys Saturday.

Presented by Saturday Night Live alum Molly Shannon and Silicon Valley & Crazy Rich Asians star Jimmy O. Yang, co-creator Justin Roiland spoke for the group thanking everyone for “believing in this weird concept.”

“We didn’t think we were going to win, so thank you to the Academy!” said an excited Roiland.

In his acceptance speech, he cited as many he could in the short amount of time, including his co-creator Dan Harmon, who earlier this year issued a statement about a disturbing video that surfaced which featured a skit from a 2009 Harmon pilot called Daryl, a spoof of Showtime’s serial killer drama Dexter, in which he simulates raping a baby doll. Considering its win, the controversy seems to not have an impact on the show.
