Netflix Vice President of Original Programming Cindy Holland made her first appearance before the Television Critics Association to take questions from reporters about some of their upcoming programming on the streaming service, including a couple shows whose future has remained somewhat uncertain.
During the session, /Film asked if they’re still in the market to make Master of None season 3, and the sensitivity with which that might be required to launch it following a controversial story about star and creator Aziz Ansari. There was also a brief discussion on the possible future of Arrested Development in the wake of Jeffrey Tambor‘s controversial behavioral allegations. Read More »
Last night, the 75th Golden Globe Awards aired on NBC, and while the night wasn’t particularly exciting, it was full of a handful of big firsts for the awards presented by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
To kick off the night, Seth Meyers delivered a monologue targeting all of the missteps by Hollywood in the wake of sexual assault allegations against a wide variety of producers, actors and more. After that, there were a few awards handed out to actors of color for the first time ever. It’s kind of crazy that’s still happening, but at least Hollywood is finally embracing diversity more across the board.

We have good news, and we have bad news.
The bad news is that FXX has officially canceled the comedy series Man Seeking Woman after three seasons after the ratings just weren’t strong enough to support another season of the series.
The good news is that you can take solace in knowing that the second season of Aziz Ansari‘s Netflix series Master of None is just over a month away, and a new trailer gives us some more insight into what’s in store for Dev after the first season finale took everyone by surprise in the fall of 2015.

Last year Netflix doubled the amount of original programming that they put out in 2015, and it seems like this year they’re going to have even more as they move towards having a library where 50% of their content is original. That includes a slew of new shows and movies, but it also means the return of some Netflix favorites, and one of them has just announced a return date.
Master of None marked comedian Aziz Ansari‘s first solo outing in the world of comedy serials, and his work as a creator, writer, director, executive producer and star resulted in four Emmy nominations (including Outstanding Comedy Series) and one win for Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series. Therefore it should come as no surprise that the show is coming back for a second season, and Netflix has just announced when we’ll get new episodes, along with a tease of what’s to come.
Watch the Master of None season 2 release date teaser below, but beware that we’ll dive into spoilers from the first season below the video. Read More »

Netflix has the habit of renewing their shows as fast as possible, announcing new seasons the Monday after a new batch of episodes has dropped. In the case of House of Cards, they renewed their flagship series for a fifth season weeks before season four dropped. Since Netflix is in the business of you watching their original content as fast as possible, they have developed the habit of letting everyone know as soon as possible that yes, there will soon be new episodes for you to binge.
So it’s a little weird that it took this long Master of None season 2 to officially get put in the pipeline, which makes you wonder if series star, co-creator, and occasional writer/director Aziz Ansari deliberately pushed pause to recharge his batteries. In any case, Ansari has revealed that a new season will arrive in 2017, which is excellent news for anyone who likes good things.

Aziz Ansari has a new comedy series coming to Netflix and it looks like a great, hilarious look at life in the year 2015. And, perhaps more importantly, Master of None is giving the always funny Parks and Recreation veteran a new platform from which he can brutally honest about the topics that he’s obviously passionate about. Like the state of race and Hollywood and that time he turned down a role in Transformers because of some general racial ickiness associated with the part.
You can read the Aziz Ansari Transformers story (as well as some of his other insightful, sad comments) after the jump.

While we eagerly await the first full-length Jessica Jones trailer, Netflix has dropped the first promo for its other big November debut, Aziz Ansari‘s brand-new comedy series Master of None. And it looks every bit as intriguing, albeit for completely different reasons.
The show centers on a character not very unlike Ansari himself: Dev, a 30something actor trying to navigate love and career in New York City. Which may not be the most unique-sounding premise in the world, but Ansari brings his own unique perspective to things. Kelvin Yu, Lena Waithe, Eric Wareheim, Noël Wells, and H. Jon Benjamin also star. Watch the Master of None trailer after the jump. Read More »
Comedians Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel have collaborated with each other countless times, at various venues, in several different mediums. Maybe you’ve seen them on their MTV sketch show Human Giant, in any of the dozen movies and TV shows they’ve appeared in or at the UCB Theatre doing their show Crash Test. If you’ve seen the latter, then you’re going to love this news.

Hosting the Oscars is no easy task. You have to be entertaining, funny, and upbeat, but not too offensive. Pop culture savvy, smart, engaging, but not off-putting.
