From executive producer Kenya Barris, grown-ish follows Zoey (Yara Shahidi), Dre (Anthony Anderson) and Rainbow Johnson (Tracee Ellis Ross) from the Emmy-nominated ABC comedy as they embark on a new chapter of their lives: Zoey’s freshman year of college.
People can exclusively reveal the first promo for the upcoming spinoff, which kicks off with a special two-episode premiere Jan. 3 on Freeform — and you’re probably not shocked that the Johnson family patriarch doesn’t take the transition all that well.
“It hurts so bad,” he wails into the phone in the sneak peek above.
The Disney-owned cable network has handed out an early 10-episode season-two renewal for the comedy ahead of its series debut.
In the single-camera comedy — produced by Lonely Island trio Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Schaffer — Esther Povitsky and Benji Aflalo star as two overlooked millennial misfits from different backgrounds trying to make their way in the vain and status-obsessed culture of L.A. These two only find salvation in their male/female strictly platonic friendship. The series will premiere its first 10 episodes Jan. 10 at 8:30...
Originally produced in 2005, “House of Cosbys” was one of the first major successes for Channel 101, the screening series/digital platform created by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab. “Channel 101” featured a number of comedy stars, including Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, and The Lonely Island’s Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone – while also leading to the collaboration between Harmon and Roiland that would eventually give birth to “Rick and Morty.”
It also, however, attracted the ire of Cosby, who for some reason didn’t see the humor in the show. “Cosbys” focused on Mitchell (voiced by Jeff B. Davis, who would

It’s a pretty big ask for a movie that debuted over six months ago. It’s also part of the reason why the first-time filmmakers are so high on their distributor, Sony Pictures Classics, which made it clear from their first meeting that they were all-in on the childhood best friends’ big vision — even if it meant keeping mum on some of its most inventive twists.
20th Century Women (Mike Mills)
That emotional profundity most directors try to build to across an entire film? Mike Mills achieves it in every scene of 20th Century Women. There’s such a debilitating warmness to both the vibrant aesthetic and construction of its dynamic characters as Mills quickly soothes one into his story that you’re all the more caught off-guard as the flurry of emotional wallops are presented.

“This seems like a good time to mention the movie we are making with The Lonely Island is about a music festival that goes Horribly Wrong,” tweeted Rogen, with The Lonely Island adding that: “For real, thinking about suing #FyreFestival for stealing our idea.”

Fyre Festival was touted as a “luxury” music festival with scheduled performances from acts like Blink-182, Migos, Major Lazer, Pusha-t, and Disclosure. However, after headliners Blink-182 canceled last minute Thursday night, concert-goers quickly realized the Exumas event was a disorganized mess.
Disgruntled ticketholders shared images of the disarray on social media, prompting organizers to apologize. Ja Rule admitted to being “heartbroken” by the failed fair, which some disappointed music fans have even been calling a scam.
Rogen and The Lonely Island — Andy Samberg, Akiva Schaffer, and Jorma Taccone — jumped on the viral Twitter trend to announce their upcoming comedy.

Not only has the cable network put together several new series with performers of color at the center, but the three shows picked up Tuesday by Comedy Central are all very different.
Ordered to series are the stand-up/musical show “The New Negroes,” the comedy game show “Taskmaster” and the scripted comedy “Corporate.” In development are shows from creators including Awkwafina, Neal Brennan, Arturo Castro, Franchesca Ramsey, Noël Wells and Flint Wainess, among others.
“The network when I got here was pretty traditionally targeted toward young white guys, both in terms of who the audience was and who was creating the shows for the audience,” said Comedy Central president Kent Alterman. “We started changing that a few years ago by expanding that into having funny women on the network, with Amy Schumer and Broad City and a lot more since.

As a matter of fact, here’s what happened when Aukerman told IndieWire how he and “Michael Bolton’s Big, Sexy Valentine’s Day Special” co-director Akiva Schaffer had fun pushing the iconic crooner into such absurd heights.
That’s how IndieWire’s interview with a few of the men behind the Netflix special began, and things certainly didn’t get any less weird — very befitting, considering the premise of Bolton as a super-sexy troubadour out to change the world.
