Actress, writer, and director Lake Bell is teaming up with “New Girl” creator Liz Meriwether for a comedy series. According to Deadline, Fox has given a pilot production commitment to “Bless This Mess,” a single-camera project about newlyweds who leave New York City to pursue a more down-to-earth life in Nebraska. Bell will star as one half of the central couple and serve as director. She and Meriwether will write the series. Joining them as executive producers is “New Girl” Ep Katherine Pope.

Justin Cook chats with SuperMansion’s Zeb Wells, Matthew Senreich and Tom Root at New York Comic Con about SuperMansion: Drag Me to Halloween, horror inspirations and potential guest stars on SuperMansion

On October 5th, Crackle debuted SuperMansion: Drag Me to Halloween, a SuperMansion holiday special that follows the League of Freedom and their spooky misadventures on Halloween night. The creators of the show, Zeb Wells and Matthew Senreich, also collaborated on Adult Swim’s long-running Robot Chicken; writer Tom Root lends his talents to both shows as well.

Are there any actors that you’d like to see guest star on future episodes of the show? I know you had Lake Bell and Phil Lamarr on this episode.

Matthew Senreich: That’s a tough one. We joked at one point about getting Aaron Paul to play with Cranston. I think that would be a lot of fun.

This includes a tour of the sets, a meet-and-greet with the puppet designers, and even a look at how individual costumes are handcrafted, while a 3-D printer is used to fabricate the artist’s designs for each tangible, miniature character.

Amy Ryan on Playing Difficult Women: ‘I’ve Become Their Advocate’

Amy Ryan on Playing Difficult Women: ‘I’ve Become Their Advocate’
In “Abundant Acreage Available,” Amy Ryan plays a tough-minded woman who reunites with her brother (Terry Kinney) to bury their father on the farm where he raised them. As they argue about where to lay him to rest, another set of siblings from their father’s past show up to further complicate matters, laying claim to the land and injecting themselves into the center of this parochial setting.

Ryan’s character remains a fierce, defiant voice who pushes back against her brother’s religious convictions and the interlopers who question her solitary way of life. It’s a commanding performance that dominates this quiet, understated movie, and it makes you wonder why Ryan — an Oscar nominee for “Gone Baby Gone” — doesn’t land such impressive leading roles more often.

Home Again review – Reese Witherspoon sparkles in silly but watchable romcom

Familiar romantic comedy tropes abound in the debut film from Hallie Meyers-Shyer, daughter of the genre’s empress, Nancy Meyers

Reese Witherspoon brand loyalty kept me on board for this, as well as a hapless addiction to what we now have to call the Meyers house style: like salivating at the sight of crème et oignon Pringles. Making her feature debut is writer-director Hallie Meyers-Shyer, daughter of feelgood-romcom empress Nancy Meyers, who has a producer credit here. The film has a lot of Nancy’s key ideas, including miraculously available and manageable younger men and outrageously expensive Martha Stewart interiors. (This film seems to use some locations from Nancy Meyers’s It’s Complicated – La’s fabulous hacienda-style homes might all look alike – and Lake Bell reprises her role as the uptight drama queen whom no one likes.)

Emmy Weekend: Inside Friday’s Starry Festivities at UTA, Wme, CAA, Variety/Wif, Netflix, and Gersh

  • Variety - TV News
The Emmy weekend Grand Prix got off to a busy start on Friday as industryites raced around the Westside to eat, drink, schmooze and be merry in advance of Sunday’s big show.

The weather cooperated with balmy temperatures just right for outdoor gatherings, and for the most part, so did the traffic and the valet lines. However, a regular sight outside of every event was a partygoer or two struggling to communicate with Uber and Lyft drivers.

UTA

The annual gathering at the Brentwood home of Jay Sures was the first stop of the night for many. By 7:45 p.m., Sures’ spacious backyard was packed with executives including ABC’s Ben Sherwood, Channing Dungey and Patrick Moran, NBC’s Bob Greenblatt, Jennifer Salke and Bruce Evans, AMC’s Josh Sapan and Charlie Collier, FX’s Nick Grad, Paramount’s Brian Robbins, Amazon’s Roy Price, Netflix’s Bela Bajaria, Discovery

TV Stars Celebrate Emmy Weekend at Variety and Women In Film’s Nominees Party
The 69th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony isn’t until Sunday, but the celebration has already begun. The weekend kicked off in style Friday night at Variety and Women in Film’s annual nominee party, presented by Halo Top Creamery.

Emmy nominees including Viola Davis, Samira Wiley, Claire Foy, Alexander Skarsgard and Cicely Tyson walked the gray carpet before entering the party held again at Gracias Madre in West Hollywood.

This Halloween, The League of Freedom will face their fears on Crackle in an all-new original special, “Supermansion: Drag Me To Halloween.” A nod to Sam Raimi’s “Drag Me To Hell,” fans can only guess at what the horror film’s influence will make on the comedy.

Larry King, 83, Reveals Secret Lung Cancer Surgery: ‘I Was Lucky’
Larry King felt fine, but he decided to keep his annual physical appointment — and that decision may have saved his life.

“I didn’t have any pain, but when they took a chest x-ray the doctor said, ‘There’s a little cloud here…,’ ” the legendary interviewer, 83, tells People of his July 2017 appointment.

A Cat scan and Pet scan followed, and King was diagnosed with stage 1 lung cancer.

“They said I was lucky and smart to get annual chest x-rays because lung cancer doesn’t give you any signs until it’s in late stages,” King says. “And by then it’s too late.

Lake Bell Is Desperate for Advice on Parenting a Toddler and a Baby Simultaneously: ‘It’s Complicated!’
Although Lake Bell is known for her comedic timing, she wasn’t kidding around when she recently attempted to crowd-source some parenting advice.

Speaking to People about the difficulties in being a mom to two young children, the Home Again actress admitted that she asked Twitter for some help.

“It’s complicated,” she said about her expanded family. “I tweeted recently, ‘Does anyone have any advice about this two-kids thing?’ And I think people thought I was joking, but I was not joking. I was like, ‘Seriously, what do you do?’ ”

Film Review: You’ll Be Counting the Minutes Until You Too Can Be ‘Home Again’

  • HollywoodChicago.com
Chicago – Seeing so many films on a daily basis, you would think that I would grow tired of them. I don’t. Instead, I begin to notice the same formulas in films, like the one in “Home Again”. Unfortunately for “Home Again” you’ll spend most of the film wondering just how much longer before you can be the same.

Rating: 1.0/5.0

The film uses the tried-and-true formula we have come to expect from many of these types of family comedies, except this one feels more tried than true. Much like Reese Witherspoon’s character in the film, we as an audience deserve better. Too long have films like this one taken us (the audience) for granted. We deserve better than these stagnant, one-sided films that ultimately don’t respect our time and leave us unfulfilled by the time they reach their predictable ends. We deserve something new, refreshing and exciting in our lives,
