According to Vulture, Michael J. Fox (Back to the Future, obviously) is “readying his return to prime-time series television”. The series would be “inspired by [his] own life”. This already sounds great, not to mention that director Will Gluck (Easy A) and writer Sam Laybourne (Arrested Development, Cougar Town) are also attached. They are looking at a 2013 launch and here is what else they say:
We’re still trying to track down plot details, but our sources tell us the show will be inspired by Fox’s own life. All four major network chiefs have heard the pitch, and two industry sources — using phrases such as “feeding frenzy” and “bidding war” — tell us it’s now just a matter of which network will offer the most attractive deal to Fox, Gluck, and Sony. Our spies say the project will, at the very least, get an automatic pilot production commitment; there’s even industry buzz about one network offering to go straight to series, something that hardly ever happens in broadcast TV anymore.
Fox was great on Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm (watch the entire clip below) and his other memorable guest spots on The Good Wife and Boston Legal. He’s the man, that’s all you can say at this point.
Welcome to The CoF Weekend Preview where we take a look at what’s going on this weekend in entertainment. Check back Sunday night for the Box Office Report and return Monday for The City Strip. Don’t forget to check out the CoF Summer Movie Guide 2011 for what else is coming soon to theaters. The City of Films Show Episode 3 is happening next week, check out the previous episodes here.
Sadly I have a feeling that this great looking movie [trailer here and here] isn’t going to fair too well up against the returning robots and Kevin James falling all over the place. Still, strong word of mouth and images like this one won’t hurt business in the long run.
Go see Horrible Bosses.
Curb Your Enthusiasm – (HBO, Sunday) – The Season 8 premiere.
Speaking of bosses, the Office UK edition is celebrating 10 years, we did our part with Ricky Gervais Week II but here is a classic scene below with a retrospective with Gervais and Stephen Merchant. Best boss ever.
The most celebrated victim of circumstance Larry David is back, and bringing his reign of right to NYC for the eighth season of Curb Your Enthusiasm on HBO. Ricky Gervais will show up at some point, and from the trailer another hero of mine is making an appearance, Michael J. Fox!
The season premiere hits HBO on Sunday, July 10th. (more…)
One of the best TV shows of all time is returning, and it’s looking great as usual. Curb Your Enthusiasm comes to New York and we have a short behind the scenes look to get you excited. In the eighth season of the hit HBO series we see guest stars Ricky Gervais, Michael J. Fox and Rosie O’Donnell making appearances as well as the always welcome J.B. Smoove as Leon. Note: There was another teaser floating around the net this week but HBO has since taken it away, so this one which I hadn’t seen before might be a rerun for some.
Check it out Sunday, July 10, at 10 pm.
Larry David is back and this time he takes on New York City. The new season of Curb Your Enthusiasm premieres this year only on HBO and they were kind enough to send over a great teaser trailer for the highly anticipated season. I can’t wait!
Also, as an added bonus I’ve included one of Leon’s best moments. Watch both after the jump: (more…)
Variety tells me that Ricky Gervais is going to be on an episode of Curb in the next and 8th season. They wouldn’t lie to me, would they? That is fantastic news. One of the best TV shows of all time and the greatest living person working together is exactly what we need.
Gervais will play himself (although obviously a heightened reality version) in the eighth episode of the season, shooting later this summer to air next year.
Gervais appeared in one episode of the upcoming Louie C.K. show on FX and I am told it was absolutely hilarious. Here is a video (part 1 of 6) you should watch, Larry David and Gervais meet and basically fall in love. Sweet really. (more…)
Curb Your Enthusiasm, HBO’s longest running scripted series and one of the best comedies ever is going returning for an 8th season. Of course it’s on HBO and of course every season seems better than the last. Last season’s Seinfeld reunion was, dare I say it, gold Jerry! Every year Larry David keeps quiet about returning, leaving people only to speculate that the show is over. People who have read his interviews or listened to some DVD commentary via Seinfeld know that the man hates to work, so we should thank him for coming back every year. Here is the press statement that he made: (more…)
