The Tanners rarely faced a problem they couldn’t resolve in 22 minutes, but the first clip from Lifetime’s The Unauthorized Full House Story reveals it wasn’t all smooth sailing behind the scenes. For one thing, it seems John Stamos (played here by Justin Gaston) wasn’t sold on the Olsen twins. And that Bob Saget (Garrett Brawith) was prone to making awkward R-rated jokes around his TV kids.
Meanwhile, the real Full House cast is welcoming some more new faces to Netflix’s Fuller House spinoff. Uncle Jesse’s twin sons Nicky and Alex (Blake and Dylan Tuomy-Wilhoit) are confirmed to return, while Eva LaRue joins the family in an entirely new role. Watch the first Unauthorized Full House Story clip and get details on the new Fuller House casting after the jump. Read More »

The March sisters are coming to The CW, sort of. The network has put into development Little Women, an adaptation of Louisa May Alcott‘s classic coming-of-age novel about four sisters in Civil War-era Massachusetts.
In the new show, however, the March girls won’t be sisters but half sisters. Also, they now live in dystopian Philadelphia. And they’re out to uncover a massive conspiracy. Plus, the tone will be “hyper-stylized” and “gritty.” But other than that, it’s totally the Little Women you remember, they swear! Get all the details on the Little Women gritty reboot after the jump. Read More »
Right now Netflix is streaming the documentary Tig, focusing on the life story of comedienne Tig Notaro, a stand-up comic who skyrocketed to instant fame after a set about her being diagnosed with cancer went viral, despite the fact that there was no video available for anyone to watch.
Now Tig Notaro is getting her own semi-autobiographical series on Amazon, and it has some pretty exciting executive producers on board. Find out more about the Tig Notaro Amazon series below! Read More »
While we were at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this month, we learned quite a bit about the forthcoming sixth season of The Walking Dead premiering in October (check out our full panel recap right here). And the lengthy trailer for the new season also teased plenty of confrontation, zombie action, and even a few new characters in Alexandria.
Now some new photos from the sixth season of The Walking Dead have surfaced, giving us another look at a new character played by Ethan Embry (who can be seen in the aforementioned trailer), as well as previously unseen characters played by Merritt Wever (Nurse Jackie) and Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton). See the new Walking Dead season six photos, and find out more about the new characters after the jump! Read More »
Steven DeKnight had to leave Marvel’s Daredevil series to direct a feature film, so he will not be working on season two, which features The Punisher.
DeKnight was around when they discussed bringing Frank Castle, who will be played by Jon Bernthal, into the show, and he was at the Television Critics Association summer press tour today for Netflix’s Showrunners panel. After the panel, I approached DeKnight to ask if this could finally be a chance to do The Punisher right after three wildly different movies starring Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. The good news is that the Daredevil season 2 Punisher may be the closest to the comics version we’ve seen on screen. Read More »

Currently on stage before the Television Critics Association is a panel of Netflix showrunners representing a selection of the streaming service’s top original shows. Melissa Rosenberg is on the Showrunner Panel representing Marvel’s Jessica Jones TV series, which stars Krysten Ritter (pictured above in Breaking Bad). Asked about her upcoming show, the edgy tone Rosenberg described seems akin to their Daredevil series, though she emphasizes the two shows are very different.
And while Jessica Jones is based on the Marvel Comics series Alias (no relation to the TV show), which was one of the first “R-rated” runs from Marvel’s MAX imprint, Rosenberg says the Netflix series goes even further than the comics did. Read More »

Today, however, Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos of Netflix offered an update, saying the Olsen twins could still appear in the series. He also talked about the filming of the first episode, which began this week. Find out about the possible Olsen Twins Fuller House return and more, after the jump.

Not long after the the video presentation that landed The Muppets a new show on ABC surfaced online after a debut at Comic-Con, we have a batch of new posters for the “more adult” TV comedy series that you’ll likely start seeing around major cities very soon.
Featuring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Gonzo, each of the character posters have a clever little tagline, with Kermit’s taking the cake as the boldest and funniest tagline to promote a Muppets production I’ve ever heard.

Summer camp isn’t just about woodland hikes and friendship bracelets. It’s also a place to learn some some valuable life lessons, like the art of negotiating as taught in this very first Wet Hot American Summer First Day of Camp clip. Lindsay (Elizabeth Banks) strikes a deal with J.J. (Zak Orth), and does so with a no-nonsense steeliness that’d do Jack Donaghy (her former TV husband from 30 Rock) proud.
