“Strangest press junket I’ve ever done. #CentralPark from home in quarantine where I am the cameraman, lighting tech, and sound engineer. I love this show so much I would frankly do ten more jobs to make this happen. Get ready. May 29th on @AppleTV” Josh Gad is glad to be introducing us to Central Park!
National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) and its Los Angeles Regional Council will host an exclusive Women Making History Awards brunch in Los Angeles on September 15.
With the warm weather issuing in summer binge watching and season reruns, the NBCUniversal Upfront red carpet showed us what we have to expect for the fall. With appearances from Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo for World of Dance to Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman for The Handmade Project, NBC made sure everyone knew of its new and continuing projects for next season.
We had the chance to speak with several showrunners on their shows and what viewers can expect to see. We spoke with Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt for their new, Seth Meyers/Mike O’Brien written show, A.P. Bio, a show that follows Howerton as a former college philosophy professor teaching A.P. Biology to high school students. Check out the informative banter the two offered us.
What can viewers expect for the new show?
GH: Two comedy legends going head to head on NBC.
PO: There could only be one. Wait a minute, that sounds weird.
PO: Yea, only one of us is going to survive the pilot.
GH: It’s like Highlander, only it’s funnier than Highlander, I hope.
PO: We kill each other with jokes. Then we cut the other’s head off and we absorb his comedy skills.
GH: That’s right.
PO: The quickening happens. And then the Queen song plays.
GH: And that’s basically what the show’s about.
PO: You can expect a lot of very funny awkwardness on this guy’s part. Yes, but this is on a different level then It’s Always Sunny, you’ll see.
Kristen Bell stopped for us as well on the carpet, telling us there’s plenty on Ted Danson’s side of their show, The Good Place, that we can expect for season two. She said the show will have, “More weird stuff. Season two takes on an entirely different meaning because of the reveal at the end of season one, and it’s a lot more from Ted Danson’s character’s perspective this season, so it’s a little bit nastier. And it’s a lot of fun.”
Among The Handmade Project, A.P. Bio, and World of Dance, other new shows coming to NBC next season include Tina Fey’s highly talked about project, Good News, as well as The Brave, and a revival of Will & Grace.
‘The Good Place’ is an upcoming fantasy-comedy set in the afterlife. And if that sounds crazy, wait until you here Ted Danson describe his character.
Written and Directed by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore, Bad Moms is an ode to hard-working mothers everywhere, but especially a love-letter to the directors’ wives.
We love Ben Falcone and Melissa McCarthy, and we’re pretty sure they love each other almost as much. So when there’s another movie with the duo, we just could not help but find out more about it and our next obsession.
The Boss is the next film written and directed by Ben Falcone and written and starring Melissa McCarthy. Coming on April 8, 2016 by Universal Pictures, the film will follow the story of Michelle Darnell, played by McCarthy, who is sent to prison after being found guilty of insider trading. After she is released, she hopes to start afresh and make herself known as a caregiving and wonderful person, although she is haunted by the people whose money she took and must make amends.
The film will star a huge boatload of people we would love to see in a comedy like this, including Kristen Bell, Peter Dinklage, Tyler Labine, Margo Martindale, Kathy Bates, Cecily Strong, Kristen Schaal, Annie Mumolo, Timothy Simons, Ella Anderson, Carrot Top, and more. With Falcone, McCarthy, Will Ferrell, Adam McKay, and Chris Hency producing the film, we sure can bet it’s going to be laugh out loud hilarious. Filming began on March 12, 2015 in Georgia.
