We're not happy with all of NBC's renewal and cancellation decisions today, but at least one of its newest offerings for the coming season will soften the blow. NBC's "Anchorman Astronaut" period comedy 'Mission Control' with 'Breaking Bad' star Krysten Ritter has officially been given a series order under the watchful eye of Will Ferrell and Adam McKay themselves. Plus, what else has NBC given the green light to?
We figured that NBC was blowing a bit of smoke in touting both Will Ferrell and the 'Anchorman' name for its new astronaut comedy pilot 'Mission Control,' but its first major casting is pure crystal. 'Breaking Bad' and 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' star Krysten Ritter will blast off into the leading lady role, but will 'Mission Control' fall apart on the landing pad?
It's been months in the making (try six years, at that), but finally the 'Veronica Mars' movie is starting to look like a complete picture. Following the brief behind-the-scenes snippets from Comic-Con 2013, marshmallow fans of the Kristen Bell detective drama have a new sneak peek to obsess over, complete with plenty of new plot details and footage from the big 'Veronica Mars' reunion in spring 2014.
Only three episodes remain in all of 'Breaking Bad' and while the show's final hours have grown so tense and action-packed that the latest preview for next week's episode "Ozymandias" didn't release a shred of new footage, outdoing even 'Mad Men''s notoriously spoiler-tight promos. A new rumor has emerged however, that suggests 'Breaking Bad's greatest characters will return Sunday night, in the spoiler to end all spoilers!
Though the most recent pilot season gave us plenty to work with in the future, we were disappointed to learn that Craig Robinson's post-'Office' vehicle had failed to earn a pickup, as well as Krysten Ritter's 'Assistance.' Now, NBC has issued new hope that either drama could remain alive for a potential pickup down the line.
Just the other day 'Veronica Mars' announced the news that Tina Majorino's Mac would return for the upcoming Kickstarter movie, and now the fan-funded feature film has added two more returning favorites. 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' star Krysten Ritter will reprise her character Gia Goodman, while 'Party Down' favorite Ryan Hansen will be back as Dick Casablancas, and we have the dance number to prove it!
Despite the fact that ABC viewers had plenty more to mourn by the recent cancellation of 'Happy Endings,' the sadness truly first began when the show's frequent timeslot partner 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' fell to the cancellation axe some months prior. Yet even with 'Apartment 23' firmer in the ground than 'Happy Endings,' guess which has eight new episodes you can watch right now?
Though it seemed like ABC had been intent on moving around struggling comedies 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' and 'Happy Endings' with the intent of finding new audiences, many a fan found themselves disappointed that ABC ultimately pulled the plug on 'Apartment 23,' while banishing 'Happy Endings' to Friday for the moment. Now, 'Don't Trust the B's' Krysten Ritter believes ABC will in fact air the remaining eight episodes of the series, so find out when you can see the finale inside!
No one was exactly surprised to hear that 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' had been pulled from the ABC schedule, effectively cancelling the series, but the timing of the show's removal may yet have produced a bit of good luck. Series lead Krysten Ritter has reportedly landed the lead role in forthcoming NBC pilot 'Assistance,' to be executive produced by FunnyOrDie founders Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, but will Ritter have better luck this time around? Get the latest on 'Assistance' inside!
