Before Mickey (Gillian Jacobs) and Gus (Paul Rust) return for season two of Love, Netflix decided to share the good news: they’ve already renewed the Judd Apatow-produced series for a third season. We’re already guaranteed more time with these charming but flawed characters.
But before we see the current state of their relationship, another show — an entirely different show — premieres on FX. That series is called Feud: Bette and Joan, which you can watch a new trailer for.
Below, watch a full Love season two preview and the Feud: Bette and Joan trailer.

If, like me, you’ve lately been wondering when we’re going to see season two of Netflix’s Love, then you’ll likely be happy to learn the series returns on March 10th. Paul Rust and Gillian Jacobs are back as Gus and Mickey. In season two of the delightfully honest romantic comedy series, which Rust co-created with Judd Apatow and Lesley Arfin, the couple face commitment.
Below, watch the Love season 2 teaser.

At the Sundance Film Festival, indie romantic comedies are a dime a dozen, and it takes something really special to make one stand out among the horde of movies playing in Park City, Utah. Thankfully, one of those special movies premiered at the festival this weekend.
The Big Sick tells the story of up and coming Pakistani-American comedian Kumail Nanjiani (who just so happens to be played by the Silicon Valley star of the same name, Kumail Nanjiani), living in Chicago and trying to land a gig at the Montreal Comedy Festival. After one of his sets at a local comedy club, he flirts with a woman named Emily (Zoe Kazan), and what starts as a one night stand eventually turns into real romance, and we all know how that goes. But the true story of how real life comedian Kumail Nanjiani met this woman has quite the curveball, making this one of the most unique and authentic romantic comedies I’ve seen in years.

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.

February will bring a new HBO comedy series to air from comedian Pete Holmes, fresh off his recent stand-up comedy special on the cable network. Inspired by his own trials and tribulations in life as an up-and-coming comic who married young only to end up divorced, Crashing follows a comedian not unlike Holmes himself as couch surfs around New York City, staying with friends and trying to figure out just what the hell to do with his life.
Now a new Crashing trailer has debuted, showing off more of Pete’s comedy struggles, trying to hand out flyers to shows, having odd gaps in his knowledge of pop culture while making obscure references to things like Will Smith rap albums and coming to terms with the fact that he’s actually homeless.

Much of the finest entertainment in the world isn’t free. But that doesn’t mean you can’t find great content that won’t cost you a dime. Case in point, Jerry Seinfeld has his web series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee available to watch for free through Sony’s Crackle, and the eighth season is on its way this summer.
The first Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee season 8 trailer has just debuted online, teasing Seinfeld’s fascinating discussions with some of comedy’s most brilliant minds. This season includes Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels, director Judd Apatow, former Daily Show correspondent and Last Week Tonight host John Oliver, and plenty more. Watch below!

We’re just one week away from the release of Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. The R-rated comedy from the comedic rap trio known as The Lonely Island (Andy Samberg, Akiva Shaffer and Jorma Taccone) features an endless array of cameos, some playing themselves, some playing ridiculous characters. However, there’s one cameo in the movie where instead of seeing a well-known face, you only see a certain part of their anatomy that is sparsely seen on film.
In Popstar, there’s a really funny sequence involving a fully exposed penis, and while you never see the face of the person the male member belongs to, the identity of this person is more than surprising. Find about the Popstar nude scene below. Read More »
By now, author and Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Nick Hornby (Brooklyn) has had a few of his novels adapted for the big screen. Since 1997’s Fever Pitch (which starred Colin Firth), we’ve seen adaptations of High Fidelity, About a Boy, A Long Way Down, and a second attempt at adapting Fever Pitch. Another one of Hornby’s stories, Juliet, Naked may soon join that list. Our Idiot Brother director Jesse Peretz is currently attached to direct the adaptation.

Netflix presented its new Judd Apatow-produced series Love to the Television Critics Association on Sunday. The show stars Paul Rust (who created the series) and Gillian Jacobs as single people working in the entertainment industry who meet awkwardly and develop a relationship. After the panel Apatow spoke with reporters further, and praised the new television climate that allows shows to blend comedy and drama more commonly. When he was producing network shows, it was much harder.
“When we did Freaks and Geeks, our show seemed crazy to everybody,” Apatow said. “It was just a vibe that didn’t exist on television and as a result, there wasn’t a lot of energy behind making it survive. The same with Undeclared. It was a single-camera show about college but there were no other single-camera shows to put it with because it didn’t exist. It was just us, Bernie Mac and Malcolm in the Middle so I’m glad there’s tons of them now.”
After the jump, Apatow also discusses the freedoms of working with Netflix, the recurring themes in his work, his daughter’s role in Love, and his upcoming pilot for HBO. Read More »
