As you may have noticed, this is the week of Upfront presentations and today it's CBS who offered a peek at their fall 2013-2014 lineup. We're certainly inclined to check out Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar's single-camera 'The Crazy Ones,' as well as Chuck Lorre's latest show 'Mom,' Will Arnett's 'The Millers' and new dramas 'Hostages' and 'Intelligence,' so preview the newest offerings inside!
As if 'Two and a Half Men,' 'The Big Bang Theory' and 'Mike & Molly' weren't enough, sitcom magnate Chuck Lorre has all-but-officially gained a new sitcom outlet at CBS. Sources report that Lorre's new Anna Faris-starring sitcom 'Mom' will soon receive a series order from CBS, bringing together an impressive cast, but will 'Mom' perform as well as Lorre's other CBS offerings?
Many share mixed opinions about sitcom magnate Chuck Lorre, and his CBS comedy monopoly that includes 'The Big Bang Theory,' 'Two and a Half Men' and 'Mike & Molly,' but will upcoming pilot 'Mom' prove the most star-studded yet? In addition to comedienne Anna Faris in the lead role of the buzz-worthy pilot, veteran actress Allison Janney has signed on in the regular role of Faris' own 'Mom.' Find out the latest on Chuck Lorre's new sitcom 'Mom' inside!
A few weeks ago we heard that sitcom magnate, and 'Two and a Half Men, 'Mike & Molly' and 'The Big Bang Theory' creator Chuck Lorre was looking to get even deeper into the CBS pool, developing new female-centric sitcom 'Mom.' At the time it was thought that 'Mom's' development could mean the end of one of his other series, but now it seems all four might be on track. We've just learned acclaimed comedienne and Hollywood star Anna Faris has signed on to play the titular mother, but what's 'Mom' all about?
The fourth ‘Scary Movie’ hit theaters in April 2006, and topped out at $90.7M at the domestic box office. It didn’t set the world on fire, but it earned enough to warrant ‘Scary Movie 5,’ which tentatively is set to open on Jan. 11, 2013. Just don’t look for series staple Anna Faris, who plans to pass on the franchise that launched her comedic career.
The picture above from 'Scary Movie 4' should tell you everything you need to know about the 'Scary Movie' franchise at this point. By the end there weren't enough horror movies to parody, so they started taking on any major movies (including 'Brokeback Mountain'), and were basically doing what Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer did with their spin-off parodies (which started with 'Date Movie' and'Epic Movie'). The franchise and parody films in general wore out their welcome, so perhaps it'll be a breath of fresh air when 'Scary Movie 5' hits theaters January 11, 2013.
The first trailer for 'The Dictator' didn't give much in the way of plot and instead promised a fictional narrative version of the mockumentary characters we've come to expect from Sacha Baron Cohen. This first official clip strips away a bit of the goofy caricature in favor of plot...
