Antoine Fuqua is directing a remake of the Danish thriller The Guilty for Netflix with Jake Gyllenhaal set to star. So far, so good. But now a surprisingly large cast has been added around Gyllenhaal, including Peter Sarsgaard, Paul Dano, Ethan Hawke, Riley Keough, and more. And that’s where things grow slightly confusing. To be clear: these are all good actors, but their addition here suggests that The Guilty remake is going to be very different than the original. Because the original film is almost entirely a one-man show.

Saturday Night Live got off to a bit of a rough start last weekend with an uneven episode and a production that was full of hiccups. But perhaps it was just season premiere jitters for the first show back in the studio since the coronavirus pandemic forced the series to do three remotely produced episodes to close out the previous season. The new episode of SNL with comedian Bill Burr hosting for the evening saw a big step up in quality, and it was even a little more edgy and dark than what we usually get from the sketch show.

Saturday Night Live is back this weekend with the show’s 46th season premiere, back in good ole Studio 8H at 30 Rock in New York City. It’s the first of five back-to-back shows in all five weekends in October, the longest run of consecutive new episodes in recent history. Chris Rock is hosting the first episode back in the studio after last season ended with three remotely produced episodes with sketches performed from the cast members’ houses. But what about the rest of month?
Comedian Bill Burr, star and creator of the Netflix animated series F is for Family, and Issa Rae, Emmy-nominated star and creator of HBO’s Insecure, have been slated to host the next two episodes of Saturday Night Live. Read More »
Plenty of industries are hurting because of the coronavirus pandemic, and that includes entertainment. But while movies and TV shows are starting to get back into production, live stand-up comedy shows are still mostly non-existent because gathering a bunch of people in a single room to open their mouths and guffaw incessantly isn’t the smartest movie when there’s a contagious virus kicking around. But Netflix recently put together a little video to hold us over with some of their biggest comedy stars.
Netflix asked comedian Neal Brennan to check in with some of his fellow comics like Adam Sandler, Kevin Hart, Amy Schumer, Tig Notaro, John Mulaney, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tiffany Haddish, David Letterman, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Steve Martin, and many more. Brennan wanted to provide some levity not just for the comedians stuck at home without an audience, but also for their fans who miss seeing the on stage, so he asks them all about their favorite jokes, comics, previous jobs, and more.

Bill Burr is one of those comedians that you either love or hate. He’s not shy about voicing his opinion, no matter how blunt or controversial it may be, and he doesn’t coddle his audiences by skirting around things like racism, sexism or anything politically incorrect. But that’s part of his charm. He’s a real salt-of-the-earth kind of guy, and a bit of an asshole, but he brings an immense amount of wit, intelligence and common sense with him. That’s why I’m pretty excited to see what he can bring to the animated family sitcom.
F is for Family is a new Netflix show created by Burr himself and The Simpsons writer Michael Price, and the full trailer for the series has just arrived, showcasing the comedian’s unique approach to raising a family back in 1973, when men were men and women weren’t astronauts. But beware, because, there’s some salty NSFW language. Read More »

Netflix has a lot of exciting original content coming out in the next few months. For me, their next must-see show is F is for Family. The animated show, created by comedian Bill Burr and Michael Price (writer on The Simpsons), is loosely based on Burr’s childhood. If you’ve ever seen the comic’s standup, then you know his childhood would make for a hilarious television show.
Watch the teaser for F is For Family after the jump.
