The legendary stand up comedian will release his first special in ten years this Wednesday, Feb. 14, on Netflix. Titled “Chris Rock: Tamborine,” the special will see Rock cover the gamut of contemporary issues like relationships, race, and society. It was directed by Bo Burnham and filmed at New York’s Brooklyn Academy of Music (Bam).

Rock’s last stand up special was “Kill the Messenger,” which premiered on HBO in 2008. He also directed the special “Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo” for HBO in 2015. Rock has won four Emmys, three Grammys and is an Oscar nominee. Some of his most notable credits include “[link

The actor/comedian will star in and executive-produce an animated Fox sitcom based on his childhood, according to our sister site Deadline. Fox has ordered a pilot presentation for Lil Kev, which follows a highly imaginative 12-year-old boy as he navigates the streets of North Philadelphia with the help of “his strong, quick-tempered mother, drug-addicted father, pessimistic older brother, ex-con uncle and wise-ass talking dog.”
Along with Hart, Lil Kev will feature the voices of Wanda Sykes (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Deon Cole (black-ish), Gerald “Slink” Johnson (Black Jesus) and stand-up comic Keith Robinson.

From creators Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil, the series is based on the true story of the husband and wife team, telling the story of a power couple navigating the landscape of Black Hollywood. The new regulars join the previously announced series leads Michele Weaver, who plays Nuri, and Will Catlett, who plays Yasir.
Idara Victor has been cast in the role of Angela. A member of the same writing staff as Nuri, Angela doesn’t always agree with everything Nuri says, mainly because she is a disgruntled drama writer stuck in a comedy she doesn’t believe in. Victor has appeared on shows like “Law & Order,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “Mad Men.” She was also a series regular on the TNT series “Rizzoli & Isles” and recurred on all four seasons of AMC’s “Turn: Washington

Recency bias would suggest “Halt and Catch Fire,” even though its strongest season, this last one, took place in the 1990s, or “Stranger Things,” which is an extremely fun show but not an all-timer. That leaves two clear-cut favorites: “Freaks and Geeks,” Paul Feig and Judd Apatow’s ode to high school outcasts; and FX’s Cold War spy thriller “The Americans.” The former is one of the great one-season wonders, one of the best shows ever made about teenagers, and — between Feig,
After a woman was told she couldn’t get a picture of Crews on her debit card without the actor’s permission, she asked for the Internet’s help getting his attention — and it worked.
It all started on Monday, when a woman named Darrel Kennedy announced on Twitter that she was ordering a new debit card with an image of Crews from his role as the very frugal father on Everybody Hates Chris — which she later joked would help inspire her to spend less money.
“Ordering a new debit card,” Kennedy wrote, alongside a

The dramedy starred Vanessa Williams (Ugly Betty) as Maxine Robinson, the host and creator of a View-esque talk show, though her scandalous personal life — which included a sordid love affair, a murder cover-up, etc. — frequently overshadowed her on-air persona.
