Aidy Bryant to Topline and Write Hulu Series Based on Lindy West’s “Shrill”

Bryant: IMDb

Aidy Bryant is taking “Shrill” to the small screen. Lindy West’s non-fiction feminist book was optioned by Elizabeth Banks back in December 2016, and now the project has landed at Hulu with “SNL’s” Bryant set to star in the single-camera comedy series that’s currently in development. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news.

Penned by Bryant, West, and Ali Rushfield (“Love”), the adaptation is said to tell “the story of a fat woman who wants to change her life, but not her body.”

Banks is among “Shrill’s” executive producers.

Published in May 2016, “Shrill: Notes From a Loud Woman” saw former Jezebel blogger West tackling topics such as online harassment, self-esteem, and prejudice against fat people. West is now a contributing Op-Ed writer for The New York Times, where she’s recently written about abortion rights, quitting Twitter due to trolls, and transforming the power structure of Hollywood.

‘The Americans’ Review: ‘Mr. and Mrs. Teacup’ Mixes Joy and Pain with Distinct Potency, as an Old Friend Returns

‘The Americans’ Review: ‘Mr. and Mrs. Teacup’ Mixes Joy and Pain with Distinct Potency, as an Old Friend Returns
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “The Americans” Season 6, Episode 4, “Mr. and Mrs. Teacup.”]

Who thought a montage involving Paige making out and Philip line dancing could be so heartbreaking?

Thus is the power of “The Americans,” as showrunners Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg almost simultaneously doled out pleasure and pain in a bone-chilling fourth episode. Philip (Matthew Rhys) clung to his simple pleasures while he could, retreating to his favorite country bar to kick off his boots with coworkers before snacking on potato chips over a pile of mounting bills. Paige’s (Holly Taylor) date turned from a fun night out to a professional conflict as she stared at her sleeping beau’s valuable ID badge. And then there’s Elizabeth (Keri Russell): so close to getting what she needs, only to be left with nothing yet again.

She’s tired, and we’re scared. Much like joy and sorrow are contradictory emotions, each

The guest list, which included Molly Sims and her family, was missing one notable face: Garner’s ex Ben Affleck. Although Garner and the 45-year-old actor,

Kyle Chandler Will Replace George Clooney in Hulu's New Miniseries, Catch-22

It's official - nearly two decades after ending his run as Dr. Doug Ross on E.R., George Clooney is returning to the small screen - albeit behind the scenes - thanks to Hulu. The streaming service, which is riding high on the award season success of its critically acclaimed drama The Handmaid's Tale, has claimed the Suburbicon director's limited series adaptation of Joseph Heller's 1961 novel Catch-22. Award-winning and nominated jumps to "prestige" TV shows are all the rage with big movie stars like Nicole Kidman and Anthony Hopkins, so Clooney's decision to do so himself seems like a smart choice.

The actor was originally slated to star in and direct a six-episode, limited-series adaptation of the iconic novel, but has now opted out of acting in it due to worries he'd "spread himself too thin." Luckily Hulu has found the perfect replacement for him: Bloodline star Kyle Chandler.

‘Truth or Dare’: Stars Praise New SAG-aftra Rule, Jason Blum Talks Making More Films With Messages After ‘Get Out’

The stars of Universal’s ‘Truth or Dare‘ are game for the new stipulation from SAG-AFTRA prohibiting holding professional meetings in private residences or hotel rooms.

At the premiere of the horror film held at ArcLight Hollywood’s Cinerama Dome Thursday night, “Teen Wolf” star Tyler Posey praised the idea of feeling more comfortable in a professional setting.

“Even I have had meetings with directors at their house–and this was before #MeToo and #TimesUp surfaced–where I would pull up and feel like: ‘This is kind of weird.’ And that it didn’t feel right, you know? So, you should definitely rent an office or just meet in a public space,” Posey said.

Lucy Hale, who currently stars in “Life Sentence” on The CW, agreed that supporting “anything to protect men and women” is necessary, but laments the fact that SAG-aftra has even had to go to

But a rogue genetic experiment gone awry mutates this gentle ape into a raging creature of enormous size. To make matters worse, it’s soon discovered there are other similarly altered animals.

HBO Boss on 'Big Little Lies' Impact, "Earned" Raises and Addressing Pay Parity

When Casey Bloys got his first of two major promotions in early 2016, the HBO executive took a good hard look at the suite of dramas he had inherited and wondered just one thing: Where were all the women?

On the comedy side, where Bloys had been in charge since 2013, he and his team had championed such female-fronted series as Enlightened, Veep, Getting On, Insecure and, of course, Girls. But now the drama lineup that he was suddenly responsible for skewed heavily male, with a mix of series that included True Detective, Game of Thrones and, then, the forthcoming Westworld....

The Incredibly Sweet Reason Blockers Is One of Leslie Mann's Most Personal Films

Image Source: Everett Collection

Leslie Mann has so many genuinely hilarious scenes in Blockers that it's difficult to narrow down a favorite. Could it be when she persuades John Cena to butt-chug a beer? Or when she channels Vin Diesel in a car chase reminiscent of Fast and Furious? Maybe it's when she army crawls out of a hotel room in a dress roughly the size of a circus tent? While her physical comedy had both me and the rest of the people in an early screening of the film howling with laughter, she truly shines in the movie's quieter, more emotional moments.

Leslie stars as Lisa in the raunchy feminist comedy directed by Kay Cannon. Lisa is a single mom who's having trouble with the idea that her teenage daughter Julie (Big Little Lies's Kathryn Newton) might choose to go to college all the way in La instead

Watch Channing Tatum Surprise Ex Jenna Dewan with a Visit from Beyoncé in Epic Lip Sync Battle
There will always be the good times.

Although Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan announced Monday they have decided to split after nearly nine years of marriage, they have plenty of memories that they can look back on — like the time they faced off in an unforgettable episode of Lip Sync Battle that aired back in January 2016.

After Dewan trolled her then-beau with a playful (and sexy!) rendition of the Magic Mike lap dance to Ginuwine’s “Pony,” it seemed like she had the match in the bag. The actress and dancer recreated moves from Tatum’s film, and finished the

‘Barry’ Review: Bill Hader’s HBO Series Is a Must-See Tour de Force

The Second Golden Age of Television may have given us some of the best hourlong dramas ever made, from The Sopranos to Mad Men to The Wire, but this era of Prestige TV has also elevated the half-hour format. Series like 30 Rock or Parks and Recreation have pushed the boundaries of what was possible for a network sitcom, while cable half-hours like Atlanta and Girls blur the lines between drama and comedy altogether. It’s a great time to be making television because the sky’s the limit when it comes to creating original stories in ambitious …
