the munsters reboot

The Munsters are moving to Brooklyn. The macabre 1960s sitcom is getting a reboot in the hipster New York City neighborhood.

Seth Meyers and Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman will be reviving the monster-comedy at NBC, several years after NBC’s failed attempt to resurrect the series with American Gods showrunner Bryan Fuller at the helm.

hannibal season 4

Like the rest of us Fannibals, Bryan Fuller is eager to bring Hannibal back from its watery grave.

The former Hannibal showrunner has confirmed that “conversations” have begun around reviving Hannibal for a potential fourth season after NBC canceled the series after its third season in 2015. While that’s exciting news for any cannibal serial killer lover, Fuller did caution fans that it could still be some time before the show returns.

Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci

Even as a die hard Saturday Night Live fan, I’m not entirely sure that we need a summer edition of Weekend Update for a few weeks before the full 43rd season of the late night sketch series kicks off on September. But after last night’s first episode of Weekend Update: Summer Edition brought back one of the best cast members to ever appear on the show, I’m so glad Colin Jost and Michael Che came back to end the summer with some laughs.

Former cast member Bill Hader made a surprise return to Studio 8H last night, and he brought with him an incredible impression of former White House communications director Anthony Scarmucci, the financier who only worked at the White House for 11 days before being unceremoniously fired from the position before he had even officially started the job.

Watch the sketch featuring Bill Hader as Anthony Scaramucci below. Read More »

Donald Glover Lando Calrissian

The final verse of the 2010 song “Fuck It All” from Childish Gambino – the rap alias of multi-hyphenate Donald Glover – ends with this line: “To all my fans who sayin’ ‘Donald Glover ’bout to blow,’ just give me six months so you can say ‘I told you so.'” It’s hard to believe it’s been seven years since then, but Glover has indeed lived up to that promise: the dude has blown up in multiple entertainment fields, culminating with being cast as Lando Calrissian in Lucasfilm’s upcoming Han Solo movie.

In a new profile, the actor speaks about the director switch-up on that film, and we learn some more details about his meeting with original Lando actor Billy Dee Williams. Plus, there are new revelations about Glover’s roles in Spider-Man: Homecoming and Community that fans should find worthwhile.

The Office Revival

This year NBC is bringing back the fan favorite sitcom Will & Grace for a new season, and they’re so happy with the proceedings that they’ve already ordered a second season of more episodes. But that might just be the first of several revivals the network brings to the table.

During publicity rounds at the Television Critics Association panels, NBC Entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt revealed the network’s strong interest in bringing back the hit comedies The Office and 30 Rock at some point, as well as the staple political drama The West Wing and medical drama ER.

Tina Fey Joining Great News

It’s been over four years since Tina Fey and Robert Carlock‘s hit, Emmy-winning comedy series 30 Rock came to an end on NBC. Thankfully, their series The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix has helped fill the void, but the network that turned Tina Fey into a star on Saturday Night Live is about to bring her back to primetime.

Earlier this year, NBC brought the freshman comedy series Great News to air. Created by 30 Rock producer and writer Tracey Wigfield (and again executive produced by Tina Fey and Robert Carlock), the series follows a news reporter (Briga Heelan) who is forced to deal with her eccentric mother (Andrea Martin), who has just become an intern at the network news program for which she works. Surrounding them is quite the odd team of news anchors, producers, and staff members, making for a show that’s like The Newsroom meets 30 Rock.

Great News had a solid first season that shows the potential for greatness, just like 30 Rock, and for the second season coming this fall, they’ll be getting a little help from Tina Fey, who is joining the series for an extended arc. Find out more below. Read More »
