The Goldbergs is currently in the middle of its fifth season, but you might remember that over a year ago we heard about the world of the 1980s-set sitcom expanding with a spin-off that would take us to the 1990s. Unfortunately, that series didn’t get ordered to series, but the pilot was ordered and shot, and fans will get a chance to see it on this season of The Goldbergs.
Find out more about The Goldbergs spin-off pilot below. Read More »

It’s been three years since Broken Lizard’s last film, The Slammin’ Salmon, and six years since their last semi-hit, Beerfest, but the comedy group is coming back this summer with a fresh new feature. Well, kinda. The Babymakers isn’t technically a Broken Lizard film — while troupe leader Jay Chandrasekhar directs, not all the team members appear, and the ones that do play supporting roles to non-Lizard stars Paul Schneider and Olivia Munn. Still, I’m betting fans will be happy to see at least a partial reunion, and the premise of the film sounds right up their alley.
Written by Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow, The Babymakers centers around a married couple (Schneider and Munn) trying for their first child. When it becomes apparent that husband Tommy is shooting blanks, however, he enlists the aid of his friends in breaking into a sperm bank to retrieve a deposit he made several years ago. Kevin Heffernan, Nat Faxon, Wood Harris, M.C. Gainey, and Aisha Tyler also star. Watch the first trailer after the jump.
