Greeting card writers don’t get a whole lot of movies made about them, but maybe they should. Between (500) Days of Summer and now Girlfriend’s Day, I’m starting to suspect their lives are actually super exciting.
Directed by Michael Paul Stephenson, Girlfriend’s Day stars Bob Odenkirk as Ray, the former “Bill Shakespeare of romance cards,” who finds himself stuck in a miserable rut. When a politician establishes a new holiday called “Girlfriend’s Day,” and announces a contest for the most romantic card, Ray decides to put himself out there… and soon finds himself tangled in a web of conspiracy and intrigue. Watch the Girlfriend’s Day trailer below. Read More »
A new Netflix original comedy series is coming to the streaming service next month starring Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore, but it’s not exactly what you would expect from either of them.
Santa Clarita Diet might sound like the latest weight loss craze for people to make their New Year’s resolutions come to fruition (and the teasers from a little while back certainly played into that). But it’s actually the new comedy series that finds Drew Barrymore as a normal suburban woman who happens to have died at some point, and yet has inexplicably kept on living her life, but with one big change: she is now hungry for raw flesh.
As any devoted husband would do, Joel (Timothy Olyphant) decides to help her satisfy her cravings, and her teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) is totally cool with it too. Watch the new Santa Clarita Diet trailer to see how this all shakes out. Read More »
Archie is under a lot of pressure in the messy Riverdale pilot. He can’t get over what happened between him Miss Grundy and he clashes with his dad (Luke Perry), as he struggles between going into the family business or pursuing his musical aspirations. The town of Riverdale is even worse off, following the death of Jason Blossom. There’s a lot of angst and misery going on in Riverdale, which gets off to a rough start but isn’t without potential.
Below, watch a new Riverdale teaser.

We didn’t get a new movie from director Judd Apatow this year, and part of the reason for that is because he’s producing a new TV series for HBO as another one is wrapping up. Girls will begin its final season in February, but Judd Apatow will stay comfy at HBO with a new comedy series starring stand-up comedian Pete Holmes.
Crashing follows Pete Holmes playing a version of himself from years ago. The HBO series follows Holmes as an up and coming, naive stand-up comedian in New York City whose seemingly happy life is uprooted when he finds his wife cheating on him. As he tries to get some stage time and recover from his destroyed marriage, he couch surfs across New York City, staying with his various comedian friends played by Holmes’ real-life comedian friends who you’ll definitely recognize in a new trailer for the show.

Though most of Hollywood is interested in remaking, rebooting or retooling the highest rated TV shows and highest grossing blockbusters franchises, some attention is being paid to giving the treatment to cult classic titles. Such is the case with a series adaptation of Guy Ritchie’s crime comedy Snatch.
Snatch has been turned into a 10-episode series at Sony’s free streaming service Crackle (the same company behind Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee and the Joe Dirt sequel no one asked for). It doesn’t follow the same story as the movie, but it tries to capture the spirit and style with the chronicle of a real life heist that happened in London. It also features Harry Potter franchise star Rupert Grint and Gossip Girl heartthrob Ed Westwick in the ensemble cast, but will it be enough to get people to watch?
Check out the Snatch TV series trailer below and decide for yourself, but beware it’s slightly NSFW. Read More »
Last fall we got a teaser for The Disney Channel’s new Tangled animated series. Instead of being computer animated like the original movie, this is a 2D stylized animated series that takes place after the events of the hit movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios. But before that series begins, it will be preceded by a TV movie, and the first trailer for it has just arrived.
Tangled: Before Ever After has Rapunzel and Eugene back (voiced again by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi), and while the end of the movie saw the long, flowing blonde hair done away with in favor of a short, brunette style, it looks like that doesn’t last long. Some kind of magic gives Rapunzel back her golden locks, but I’m not entirely sure why that’s a bad thing.

Now that we’re into the year 2017, shows are coming back from their midseason hiatus to finish out the rest of their season. In addition, there are some new shows arriving on TV for the first time. And following their panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour this week, FOX has released some new trailers for the shows coming to their network over the next few months.
24: Legacy resets the clock with Corey Hawkins as the new lead of a series set in the universe of the original starring Kiefer Sutherland (though he won’t be back as Jack Bauer for now). Prison Break is also making a comeback with the return of Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.
Outside of the returning shows, FOX also has two new crime dramas. APB follows a police precinct in Chicago taken over by a billionaire in an effort to fight crime properly, reduce corruption and create an efficient private police force. Then there’s Shots Fired, a 10-part event series that takes a look at the broken criminal justice system.

There have been plenty of great series on Showtime. However, personally, I’ve never felt compelled to subscribe in order to watch any of them. That might change with the cable network’s new series set in the world of 1970s stand-up comedy.
I’m Dying Up Here follows a group of stand-up comedians (played by Clark Duke, R.J. Cyler, Ari Graynor, and more) hoping to make it big at a time when stand-up comedy was one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the country. Every comedian was hoping to land an agent and end up on Johnny Carson, and if the Tonight Show host shook your hand and welcomed you to sit down, then you had it made.
