Tawny Cypress, Jasmin Savoy Brown Join Showtime Pilot ‘Yellowjackets’
Both Tawny Cypress and Jasmin Savoy Brown have been cast in the Showtime drama pilot “Yellowjackets,” Variety has learned.

‘What Just Happened??!’ Host Fred Savage Wants His Real Aftershow to Turn Its Fake Show Into a Real Show

‘What Just Happened??!’ Host Fred Savage Wants His Real Aftershow to Turn Its Fake Show Into a Real Show
Fred Savage makes his talk-show host debut Sunday on Fox’s “What Just Happened??! With Fred Savage” — a very real aftershow based on a very not real sci-fi series called “The Flare.” Well, not real for now, at least, as the “Wonder Years” alum is thinking maybe his show could help its fake lead-in get the green light.

“I’ll be honest, we’re hoping that it’s not so fake,” Savage — who hosts, co-created and executive produces “What Just Happened??!” — told TheWrap. “I mean, ‘The Flare’ does exist — just a scene at a time. The books are obviously completely made up, but the show itself, like, we have a real cast, a real director, and I think it’s a good show.”

“The Flare” is based on fictional author Tj Whitford’s sci-fi book series, “The Moon is the Sun at Night,” which has been a favorite of Savage’s since childhood.

‘Russian Doll’ Trailer: Natasha Lyonne Relives Death On An Endless Loop In Netflix Comedy

  • Deadline
Set to the tune of “Crimson and Clover”, the new trailer for the Netflix comedy Russian Doll starts over not once, not twice, but three times… and it makes sense considering the main character relives death on an endless loop.

Created by Natasha Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland, Russian Doll, which debuts Feb. 1, follows a young woman named Nadia (Lyonne) on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City. As you can see from the trailer above she dies repeatedly while at this party and she is just trying to figure out what the hell is going on.

In addition to the female trifecta of female creators leading the Russian Doll charge, the series features an all-female writing and directing team, with all episodes directed by Headland, Lyonne, and Jamie Babbit.

Lyonne, Poehler, and Headland serve as executive producers,

‘Russian Doll’: Netflix Reveals Release Date for Natasha Lyonne Dark Comedy

‘Russian Doll’: Netflix Reveals Release Date for Natasha Lyonne Dark Comedy
Natasha Lyonne has had an epic career, beginning with her early days as a child star and continuing with roles like the lead role of “Slums of Beverly Hills” and the most sardonic inmate at Litchfield in “Orange Is the New Black.” But her newests Netflix series could be the showcase she’s been looking for since the beginning. “Russian Doll,” co-created by Lyonne, Amy Poehler, and Leslye Headland, is set to premiere February 1, 2019, on Netflix.

The official synopsis reads as follows: “‘Russian Doll’ follows a young woman named Nadia (Natasha Lyonne) on her journey as the guest of honor at a seemingly inescapable party one night in New York City.”

Vague, but intriguing. What that means for Nadia and her sanity is a question that the show will have to answer, but considering that playwright and filmmaker Headland co-created it, the story will be accompanied by the writer/director’s trademark wry wit,
