Media Theatre's Wizard Of Oz Plays Through 1/10/2010

"The Wizard of Oz", L. Frank Baum's family friendly fantasy in which a young Dorothy travels over the rainbow after a twister hits her Uncle's farm, is one of the most popular stories of all time due to the iconic film version. While the film celebrates its 70th anniversary this year, the stage version of the musical based on the movie claims The Media Theatre stage as its home this holiday season (Nov. 24, 2009-Jan. 10, 2010).

The Media Theatre will produce The Royal Shakespeare Company's version of the musical, which includes all of the well-known songs from the film ("Over the Rainbow", "If I Only Had A Brain", "Follow The Yellow Brick Road") and a number cut from the original movie ("Jitterbug"). Temple University's Peter Reynolds, who directed Media's popular "Altar Boyz" last season, will take the helm for "Oz".

Blu-ray review: Kevin Smith 3-Movie Collection (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back)

The newly released Kevin Smith three-movie box set contains the popular director’s three most popular films in beautiful Blu-ray quality. Containing his debut Clerks, along with Chasing Amy and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, Smith’s new box set captures a lot of crap you missed the first time around.

Kevin Smith is usually a big hit with internet writers thanks in part to his humble origin, legendary (or hyped, depending on who you ask) beginnings and his rather soft physique. He also represents the film/comic book/video game subculture, which has made serious strides to becoming a mainstream, high covered phenomenon on the verge of losing its trademark and sarcasm.

Or he just makes funny movies.

The legend of Kevin Smith is a classic American success story. A film school reject, Smith decided to break away from schools, books and teacher’s dirty looks and make his

Blu-Ray Review: Beloved Kevin Smith Films Released in High Definition

Chicago – Very few filmmakers provoke the same kind of passionate adoration as the sometimes-great Kevin Smith, a man who has such a following that he can sell out large theaters filled with people who merely want to ask him questions for hours. Smith is a charismatic, interesting, clever filmmaker and his best work reflect his gregarious personality. Three of his best are captured in “The Kevin Smith Collection,” including two films with all-new Blu-Ray material.

Blu-Ray Rating: 4.0/5.0

If you were designing the Kevin Smith set and could only pick three films, what would you choose? The man has directed eight full-length feature films and we can probably cut “Jersey Girl” from consideration from the beginning, leaving seven to choose from. Personally, I would go with three different periods of his work and choose “Clerks,” “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back,” and “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” but then that

Kevin Smith 3-Movie Collection (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) – Blu-ray

Blu-ray Review

Kevin Smith 3-Movie Collection (Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back)

Directed by: Kevin Smith

Rating: R

Due Out: November 17, 2009

Who’S It For? With the fan-based nature of his movies, if you like these titles from writer/director Kevin Smith, then you probably own them already. It’s really up to you if you want to shell out ninety dollars to have their latest incarnation, though none of them really demand a high definition presentation except for maybe the more Hollywood Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. The documentaries about each movie are fun watches, but perhaps you should put this on your wish list before your immediate shopping list.

Kevin Smith embraces the suckage of work by finding the amusing nature of the weird sh*t that can go on during one shift. Slaving away at a beat down convenience store on

Blu-ray Review: The Kevin Smith Collection

I am an unashamed Kevin Smith fan, and primarily of his earlier, less mature work. If there's such a thing as quality dick and fart joke movies, I would say Kevin's pre-Jersey Girl films fit the description. While I wasn't a big fan of either Clerks 2 or Zack and Miri Make a Porno, films such as Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Mallrats and Dogma are personal comedic favorites of mine and Miramax's Kevin Smith Blu-ray collection brings two of those along with what may be Smith's most respected film, Chasing Amy, home in a tidy little package.

To begin, the collection includes the first ever Blu-ray releases of Clerks and Chasing Amy as well as the previously released Blu-ray edition of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. If you already own the Jay and Silent Bob Blu-ray this is the exact same thing with the included audio commentary,

Commercial ad rates on the broadcast networks - nowhere near the riches of 2004

Ad Age's annual charticle on commercial ad rates may reveal that ABC’s FlashForward is commanding the richest, per-30-second ad rate out of all new shows this season ... but it ain't no According to Jim. Say what? Just take a look at the ad rates from only five years ago when Jim -- yes, that benign, so-so rated comedy that stayed on the air for an astonishing seven seasons -- was generating some $204,212 per 30-second spot for ABC. Obviously, the market was a lot better in those days -- you know, when everyone was working for bloated companies while

Clive Owen And Catherine Keener Sign On To Trust

Clive Owen and Catherine Keener will topline the dark drama Trust, which marks David Schwimmer's first foray into the non-comedic directorial world.

Schwimmer has directed several comedy TV shows in his time, most notably Friends, Joey and Little Britain USA, and his feature directorial debut was in 2007 with the comedy Run Fatboy Run, starring Simon Pegg. His new film, Trust, will pose a new challenge for him, telling the story of a couple (Keener and Owen) who are shocked to discover that their teenage daughter (played by Liana Liberato) has been victimized by a sexual predator whom she met in an online chat room.

Filming begins this November, so presumably the film will be released some time next year.

How would a Comcast-nbc Universal deal shake up the executive ranks?

The flood of reports that Ge is looking to spin off NBC-Universal and give Comcast control of half of the company doesn't exactly come as a shock if you consider the myriad of problems that continue to plague the entertainment division. The movie division has endured a horrible box office run of late (Land of the Lost, Bruno and Funny People all underperformed for the studio this summer) so rumors have been floating for months that Universal Pictures' co-chairmen David Linde and Marc Schmuger would be replaced. And though the ailing TV division did a little housecleaning of its

Matt LeBlanc's new series: How you doin'?

Matt LeBlanc is getting a new show? Get thee behind me, thoughts of Joey! The Showtime project, created by David Crane and Jeffry Klarik, follows "a British couple whose hit UK show is turned into a dumbed-down American sitcom starring LeBlanc (as himself)." I...am optimistic, particularly because this has been an otherwise solid week for Friends alums. First, I'm loving Cougar Town almost as much as Slezak is -- Courteney Cox is great in it, and totally not Monica, which is both good (the show needs it) and bad (I loved Monica). Second, Lisa Kudrow sang "Smelly Cat" at

Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc is hoping to make TV audiences laugh again with a new comedy - three years after the actor's spin-off series flopped.

LeBlanc made Friends fans laugh as Joey Tribbiani for a decade, but failed to find success with his spin-off series Joey, which was cancelled in 2006 after two seasons.

Episodes will begin shooting in London and Hollywood this winter. The programme is set for a 2010 debut on America's Showtime network and the U.K.'s BBC Two.

'Friends' Star Matt LeBlanc Going to Showtime for New Comedy

Five years after he ended his successful run as Joey on "Friends" and three years after the spin-off, "Joey", was canceled, Matt LeBlanc gets a job in a new sitcom. Showtime in partnership with BBC 2 present a new comedy titled "Episodes" which will put LeBlanc as an actor of a dumbed-down TV show.

The show however won't only revolve around LeBlanc's character. The main idea is about a British couple whose TV show is turned into a dumb American sitcom when the format rights are sold in the U.S. "We jumped at the chance to get involved with this cock-eyed look at network television told through the eyes of unsuspecting British producers who don't know what hit them when they enter the lion's den of Hollywood," Showtime Entertainment President Robert Greenblatt said.

Responsible for making the single-camera show alive are co-creator of "Friends", David Crane, and "Mad About You" producer,

  • Aol TV.
A lot of people have wondered what happened to Matt LeBlanc. After Joey died, he seemed to fall off the face of the Earth.

But no one really knew what LeBlanc. was up to (besides wondering about a Friends reunion movie).

Now we know. LeBlanc has signed on to star in a new comedy for Showtime titled Episodes.

'Friends' star Matt LeBlanc to spoof self on Showtime series 'Episodes'

Matt LeBlanc has been little seen since his ill-conceived "Friends" spinoff "Joey" crashed and burned three years ago. While that show sputtered out after two seasons on NBC, it's failure should not take away from the enormous success LeBlanc enjoyed with "Friends." And no doubt he hopes to recapture some of that magic with his newly announced series "Episodes,"  a co-production between Showtime and the BBC set to air next year. This showcase for LeBlanc is being shepherded by two sitcom veterans -- "Friends" co-creator David Crane and "Mad About You" producer Jeffrey Klarik. The single-camera comedy will follow the misadventures of an English couple whose urbane Britcom is dumbed down for American audiences with the casting of LeBlanc, who will play an exaggerated version of himself. As he said in today's news release: "I am so glad I got the part, seeing someone else play Matt LeBlanc would have been devastating.

Breaking: Showtime and BBC Pact on Matt LeBlanc Comedy Series "Episodes"

Penance for Joey perhaps? Showtime and BBC Two have joined together to co-produce new comedy series Episodes, set to star Matt LeBlanc (Friends). The single-camera comedy series, which received a six-episode commitment from Showtime and BBC Two, revolves around a British couple whose smash-hit British skein is adapted into a "dumbed-down" Us sitcom starring Matt LeBlanc (who will play himself).
