Now, it’s being made into a film with Amazon Studios overseeing the project.

Remember Scream? No, I don’t mean the movie. I mean the TV spin-off series that aired on MTV. The series had its moments, but after two seasons, it seemed like any real enthusiasm for the show had evaporated. Despite all this, a third season was announced back in 2016…and then nothing happened. Until now. The series has been rebooted as Scream: Resurrection – and it’s found a new home. Instead of airing on MTV as originally planned, the new season will debut on VH1. Watch the Scream season 3 trailer below.

There used to be a time when summer was a dead zone when it came to finding good television. But nowadays there’s an overabundance of programming to be found at every turn. Netflix always has something cooking, which means broadcast and cable networks are trying to keep up with great fresh content of their own, and Showtime looks to have something great on their hands.
I’m Dying Up Here is a new one-hour drama series at Showtime that follows an ensemble cast of up and coming comedians in 1970s Los Angeles, when the art of stand-up comedy was seeing a surge in popularity from the stages of comedy clubs to being in front of the curtain on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson. A new I’m Dying Up Here trailer showcases even more of the drama and laughs that come from trying to deliver a set that kills, and you can watch it below (but beware of some NSFW language).

Editor’s Note: Below is our review of from the Sundance Film Festival. We’re republishing it now that Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is open in limited release. Find theaters here.
On paper, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl doesn’t seem particularly exciting. An adaptation of a book by Jesse Andrews, it’s the story of a high school senior who is forced to become friends with a school acquaintance who is diagnosed with leukemia.
Interesting, yes but not that exciting. Thankfully, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl isn’t merely on paper. It’s a film — in fact, a film that loves film, celebrates film, and is very much about the medium – with beautiful shot composition, tense long takes and elaborate tracking shots. It tells a touching and incredibly funny story with very realistic, honest characters and enough self-awareness to make it all feel modern. Directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon and adapted by Andrews, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival this weekend.
