Us comedy-drama Lemon by writer-director Janicza Bravo will open the 46th International Film Festival Rotterdam (Iffr) on 25 January.

A spokesperson for Adult Swim said the network declined to comment.
On Twitter, Gelman cited recent remarks by Mike Lazzo, an Adult Swim executive vice president, about the absence of female creators associated with the network, as a reason for why he planned to “sever ties” with Adult Swim. On Redding, Lazzo recently noted that “women don’t tend to like conflict, comedy often comes from conflict, so that’s probably why we (or others) have so few female projects.” But he also acknowledged that “this was a dumb answer to a good
Here's how truTV describes it: "The half-hour show follows three trouble-making teachers, played by show creators Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix. More inept than the kids they teach, they're out to beat the system as they struggle to survive each day on their own terms. Joining them is Maria Thayer (Eagleheart) as the school librarian with an insuppressible passion for life."
The series revolves around three frustrated and dysfunctional high school teachers in Denver who are as screwed-up as the students they teach.
The half-hour laffer will star show creators Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy. The trio hails from Denver-based comedy troupe the Grawlix. Maria Thayer (“Comedy Bang! Bang!,” “Eagleheart”) rounds out the cast as Abbey Logan, a new librarian who questions, denies and then ultimately joins in on the antics of her co-workers.
“‘Those Who Can’t’ has exactly the kind of fresh, slightly off-kilter humor we’re looking for as we venture into the world of scripted comedy,” said Chris Linn, president, head of programming for TruTV. “Adam, Andrew and Ben have created a terrifically funny show that’s a perfect fit for the

Of all the recent pilots released by Amazon, The New Yorker Presents is easily the most interesting. A half hour smorgasbord of content, this first episode is completely fascinating in terms of its form and what that could mean for both Amazon’s original series and television in general going forward.
The conceit of The New Yorker Presents is simple: a little bit of this, a little bit of that. This first episode contains a short film, a conversation/interview with an artist, a short documentary and a recorded performance of a poem. The ultimate success of a series like this is similar to that of a sketch comedy in that episodes and individual segments will be hit or miss week-to-week. Obviously, the goal becomes bringing together a collection of talent that is of
