Zoe Lister-Jones Comedy Scores Put Pilot Commitment at ABC
ABC has given a put pilot commitment to a single-camera comedy project that hails from Zoe Lister-Jones.

Lister-Jones is known for her acting work, but will serve as the writer and executive producer on the project. It is titled “Woman Up” and follows two former teen moms who have worked their asses off to see their daughters all the way through high school graduation. And now, at 37, they’re ready to make up for the youth they never had.

Lister-Jones will executive produce under her Ms. Lister Films banner. In addition to Lister-Jones, Liz Meriwether will also executive produce. Meriwether recently co-created the ABC comedy series “Single Parents” and worked with Lister-Jones when the latter guest starred on “New Girl.” Jason Winer and Jon Radler will also executive produce via their Small Dog Picture Company. 20th Century Fox Television will produce.

The 20 Best Adult Swim Comedy Series, Ranked: From ‘Rick and Morty’ to ‘Robot Chicken’

There are few communities as obsessive as Adult Swim fans. The Cartoon Network nighttime programming block debuted in 2001 as a subversive spin on the animated channel’s daytime fare, and soon grew into a catch-all for bold creators. It eventually shook off its animated-only ethos to allow for surreal visions and adventurous filmmaking that fostered some of Hollywood’s most off-the-wall thinkers, and even brought in game celebrities to join in the insanity. Nearly every As title has disparate cults to fight for the programs that speak to them, whether it’s the rockers who ride for “Metalocalypse,” the Tim & Eric faithful who crowd the duo’s live shows, or the chemically enhanced who get their kicks on “Off the Air.”

Here are our picks for the network’s top 20 original comedy series, taking cultural influence into account alongside laughs.

‘Jon Glaser Loves Gear’ Star Isn’t A Douchebag, But He Plays One on TV

‘Jon Glaser Loves Gear’ Star Isn’t A Douchebag, But He Plays One on TV
Jon Glaser loves gear. “Jon Glaser” really loves gear.

TruTV’s new series “Jon Glaser Loves Gear,” which premieres Wednesday night, defies classification. It’s a fake reality show about a celebrity who loves cool gadgets, but it includes segments with real people showcasing real cool gadgets. It’s heavily improvised, but with real scripted story tangents, as comedian Jon Glaser, playing an awful version of himself, watches the narrative unravel.

“It is weirdly hard to describe,” Glaser said. “And when people ask, ‘What is gear?’ that has an even wider definition.”

Jon Glaser Loves Gear” follows the fictional Glaser as he pitches TruTV on the show, which the network quickly greenlights. He finds a sidekick (Steve Cirbus, “Delocated”) and in the first episode, and sets out to go camping. After his wife refuses to play along, he auditions models to play his spouse… and things fall apart once the camping gets started.

Amy Schumer’s First Sex Scene Involved ‘Scream-Crying and Drooling’

Amy Schumer’s First Sex Scene Involved ‘Scream-Crying and Drooling’
Amy Schumer makes the many trysts in her new comedy Trainwreck look easy and breezy, but her first time, like all first times, was anything but. “My first sex scene was with [Eugene Mirman]. He was supposed to be losing his virginity to me, and we were supposed to be wasted,” Schumer explained to the overflowing crowd at the Apple Soho store on Monday evening. Schumer had a recurring role as Trish, the girlfriend of Yvgeny (played by Eugene Mirman), an inept Russian hit man with a penchant for vodka-centric stand-up, on Adult Swim’s mockumentary-style TV series Delocated. Schumer continued: At the same time he’s having his first orgasm, he finds out that his dad dies. So he was scream-crying and drooling and coming, and I’m under him. It was the kind of thing where at first I was trying to make him comfortable because he was shy, so I was like,

Robot Chickens and Selfish Milkshakes: 'Adult Swim' 101

There was a certain point in history, somewhere between The Simpsons and Daria, when TV animation ceased to be the sole provenance of kids drooling over their morning bowls of Lucky Charms. These days, cartoons for grown-ups are not only ubiquitous, but hilariously twisted and high-quality to boot — and that's due in large part to a phenomenon called Adult Swim. What began as a freaky little block of late-night programming has evolved into a vast, even-freakier universe of animated and live-action series with a sardonic, absurdist sense of humor that's

Jon Glaser Takes an Adult Swim With Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter

The innuendo of the above headline has us snickering like tiny schoolgirls, but sometimes we just cannot help ourselves. Some shaggy fun is on its way to the Adult Swim programming block. Read on for details.

According to Variety, Adult Swim is ready to sink its teeth into “Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter,” a pilot from creator Jon Glaser (pictured) that follows a man who happens to have both a particular fashion sense and a desirable skill set.

The show’s hero is Neon Joe, someone with a mysterious past and a craft that comes in handy when a sudden plague of inexplicable werewolf fatalities strikes, leaving the sheriff’s department of the pretend sleepy enclave of Garrity, Vermont (aka “B&B Town, USA!”), at a loss and the townspeople fearing for their lives. Will he catch the beast before the next full moon, or will it live another day and kill again?

The Stealthy Genius of Andy Daly's New Comedy Central Series 'Review'

The Stealthy Genius of Andy Daly's New Comedy Central Series 'Review'
There's no gap between Comedy Central's new series "Review" and the show-within-a-show on which it's focused, "Review with Forrest MacNeil." Everything that Forrest MacNeil, played by Andy Daly ("Eastbound & Down," "Delocated"), is shown doing is part of the fictional series he's hosting, one in which he reviews life experiences at the request of his viewers. "Life... it's literally all we have. But is it any good?" he thunders in the introduction, before taking on and then rating things like "stealing," "prom" and "eating 15 pancakes" on a five-star scale. That the show-within-a-show is all we see is part of the stealthy genius of "Review," which aired its third, funniest and darkest episode last night. "Review" takes place in sketch-like shorter chunks, but Forrest doesn't go unscathed by his experiences. A request that he review "addiction" in the first episode leads him to reluctantly dabble in cocaine use ("Some people simply

'Wonder Showzen' Creators Vernon Chatman and John Lee Talk 'The Heart, She Holler' and Making TV's Strangest Shows

  • Indiewire
Under their production company Pffr, Vernon Chatman and John Lee have made some of the most brilliantly and aggressively weird programming to ever air on television. Their children's show parody "Wonder Showzen," which ran on MTV2 for two seasons from 2005 to 2006, used the bright, chipper tone of a "Sesame Street"-style series to achieve dark, caustically funny moments -- like an apparently instructional segment on the importance of hand-washing that becomes an ode to Ocd ("The shame never seems to scrub off," notes the child voiceover). Since then, the pair and their collaborators Alyson Levy and Jim Tozzi have found a fitting home for their work at Adult Swim, where they've had first the computer-animated saga "Xavier: Renegade Angel," then "Delocated," a fake reality series about a man in witness protection starring Jon Glaser. Pffr's latest series "The Heart, She Holler" may be the most singular and strange yet, a

5 dumb questions for Todd Barry
Todd Barry has a lovely speaking voice. I mean yeah, he’s amazingly funny and puts out great comedy albums and seems to pop up on all the best TV shows (“Louie,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Delocated” to name a few), but the thing to remember about Todd is that has a really terrific and lovely speaking voice. Or remember that other crap instead, I’m not here to control your goddamn hippocampus. What I am here to do is concoct immeasurably stupid questions and thrust them upon funny people like Todd.

TV Review: Parks and Recreation 5.21, “Swing Vote”

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars

It’s funny that Councilman Jamm serves as the eponymous “Swing Vote” this episode as he’s also become the hinge upon which Leslie’s arc this season has rested, and unfortunately it’s almost as weak as that travesty known as the Hoover Dam. Jon Glaser is a very talented performer (if you don’t know Delocated, get on that right now) who has made me laugh every episode in which he’s appeared as Councilman Jamm, but the character is pretty two-dimensional, essentially Tom’s fragrance rival, Dennis Feinstein, with a penchant for stealing patients’ putters from his dentist’s office waiting room. I’m fine with a simple character whom makes me laugh, but if that character’s going to serve as the personification of our protagonist’s greatest idealistic challenge, especially after that idealism has been so well defined over the course of four previous seasons,

Jon Glaser Pitches His New Show Idea: Neon Joe: Werewolf Hunter
Last night, the pretty bonkers series finale of Delocated aired. So it's hard not to wonder what its creator, Jon Glaser, will do next (aside from reprise his roles on Girls and Parks and Recreation). If his recent conversation with Eugene Mirman is any indication, Glaser has plenty of new show ideas: There's Stayin' Put!, his show about comedians who don't move to L.A.; and Chiquitas, which is "sort of like Girls but it’s in Cancun." However, at the New York Delocated finale party at Comedy Bar last night, he might've announced to Vulture his best project yet: Neon Joe: Werewolf Hunter. "It’s about a guy that wears neon but he also hates werewolves," he told us. "He wears Coors Light pants because they call Coors Light the silver bullet, so those are his silver bullets to combat werewolves." As for how this brilliant idea came to

Watch: How To Not Get Hired On 'SNL'

Watch: How To Not Get Hired On 'SNL'
Comedian Jon Glaser has had a big year: He's had big guest spots on two zeitgeist-y shows, "Girls" (as an ex-junkie with a crush on Hannah) and "Parks and Recreation" (as a councilman who hates Leslie). Plus, his own Adult Swim series, "Delocated," about a man in Witness Protection who happens to have his own reality show, sees its series finale this Thursday, March 7.

HuffPost Live's Ricky Camilleri interviewed Glaser about his long career in comedy on Friday. At least, he attempted to conduct the interview, but in typical Jon Glaser fashion, Jon was more content to make fun of the host and the very idea of the interview.

In the clip above, Jon tells his story about getting rejected from "SNL" after deciding that the show was sorely lacking in impressions of King Hussein of Jordan.

Eugene Mirman Talks to Jon Glaser About Parks and Rec, Girls, and the End of Delocated

Eugene Mirman Talks to Jon Glaser About Parks and Rec, Girls, and the End of Delocated
Delocated star and creator Jon Glaser has been a fixture of the comedy community for well over a decade: He started at Chicago's Second City; joined the now-storied writing staff of The Dana Carvey Show, alongside Louis C.K., Robert Carlock, and other greats; and went on to write for Late Night with Conan O' Brien for a half-decade. But this year is shaping up to be his biggest yet. In the past two months alone he's had roles on Girls (as Hannah's former-addict neighbor Laird) and Parks and Recreation (as the show's only villain, Councilman Jamm). And although his Adult Swim program is coming to an end March 7, it had a good three-year run. With all this going on, Vulture enlisted Eugene Mirman (Glaser's friend and repeat Delocated guest star) to check in on his fellow comic. Herewith, a slightly condensed version of their conversation, including a glimpse at
