It wasn’t any surprise to hear that NBC was mulling a full Will and Grace revival after the surprise election special, though star Debra Messing certainly pumped the brakes on claims the deal was done. Someone may have been doing a bit of fibbing, as NBC now confirms a 10-episode revival in the works.
Will & Grace fans eager for a revival after the 2016 election short got a shot in the arm with star Leslie Jordan’s announcement that a 10-episode order was already placed, but you know what they say when things sound too good to be true. That Debra Messing will publicly humiliate you over them.
Considering the ease with which Will & Grace revived its brand for a short election-themed “episode,” it wasn’t any surprise that NBC would look into an official revival. Word has been vague since then, though star Leslie Jordan says the new series is “absolutely” happening, and has already picked out a shoot date.
The entertainment industry has done Bryan Cranston dirty. His award-hoarding turn as mild-mannered meth kingpin Walt White on Breaking Bad should have cracked Hollywood wide open for him, with high-power producers lining up to cast him in the next big prestige release. But for every Trumbo (which earned Cranston an Oscar nomination, despite plenty of shortcomings), there is a Why Him?, and the soggy prosthetic moose scrotum that goes with it.
The stars of NBC’s Will & Grace went surprisingly all-out for a recent reunion video breaking down the 2016 election, practically staging an entire new episode in the process. Naturally, the viral video made NBC see dollar signs, and an official Will & Grace reunion series is now in development.
It’s not much of a stretch to say James Franco is every parent’s worst nightmare. Could you imagine your kid — hypothetical or actual — dating the self-proclaimed artist occasionally known as Semaj? That’s the gist of Why Him?, in which Franco plays an obnoxious, foul-mouthed, tattooed billionaire dating the daughter of Bryan Cranston’s doting dad. He’s not technically playing himself, but it’s a pretty believable nightmare scenario.
Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally: greatest celebrity couple, or the best celebrity couple? The comedic character actors have been married since 2003, and as anyone who has seen Parks and Recreation can attest, they have an explosive onscreen...
Compounding the shortage of post-apocalyptic TV these days, NBC has made some curious choices in the realms of dystopian drama and comedy (goodbye ‘Revolution’ and ‘Parks,’ hello three-camera!), so why not combine the two? The peacock has recruited Rob Lowe, ‘The Office’’s Jenna Fischer and Megan Mullally for a new hour-long dramedy, fittingly enough titled ‘Apocalypse.’
Dismayed though we are that 'Parks and Recreation' will come to a close with the impending seventh season, NBC looks to be giving the revered comedy the send-off it deserves. To wit, past series stars Megan Mullally and Natalie Morales have been confirmed to return for important final season arcs, while the full season 6 gag reel has made its way online as well.
Now this is quite the late-night coup, as 'Late Night' host Seth Meyers managed to entice both halves of Hollywood's best couple, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, to hit up his show. At the same time. As guests. For the first time ever!
