Following word of a handful of drama pilots that received series orders at Fox for the 2013-2014 season, comes another batch of series orders at Fox, this time for comedies. Among the pilots going to series at Fox is the cop comedy starring Andy Samberg, and Surviving Jack, which will star Chris Meloni.
It's disappointing that things didn't work out for Shawn Ryan's Last Resort. The ABC submarine drama was cancelled last fall and has since finished up its 13-episode run, leaving its cast free to pursue other projects. For Andre Braugher, it looks like the future may include a return to comedy. The Men of a Certain Age star has signed on for a Fox comedy pilot, which will also put him back in a uniform.
Fox has found a co-star for Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg in the currently untitled detective comedy pilot from Mike Schur and Dan Goor. Tyler Perry’s Are We There Yet star Terry Crews has signed on to star opposite Samberg for the single-camera project.
Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur's comedy pilot with Dan Goor still doesn't have a name, but it does have an order at Fox, which makes it the first pilot order for Fox's 2012-2013 TV season. And that brings the comedy one step closer to us having Andy Samberg back on television stateside.
Since his departure from NBC's long running sketch comedy series Saturday Night Live, Andy Samberg has moved on to star in the BBC Three sitcom Cuckoo. We may be seeing him back on the small screen stateside soon enough, assuming things go well for Michael Schur and Dan Goor's untitled comedy pilot, in which Samberg is now set to star.
Andy Samberg just made his farewells to Saturday Night Live, and new TV gig is officially confirmed – he's going across the pond. He’s headed over to BBC Three to take on a role in a new comedy series called Cuckoo. The six-part series is gearing up for summer filming, so Samberg isn’t wasting any time with his next career move it seems.
Samberg is set to appear in Cuckoo, an upcoming comedy that will air on BBC Three across the pond. Samberg’s role will follow him as an indolent dude who marries a British lady. In the series, trouble will arise after Samberg strikes the wrong chord with his new wife’s father.
Saturday Night Live has often been a rather large stepping stone for comedic actors, many of whom have gone on to create names for themselves beyond their place on the sketch comedy series. Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg and Jason Sudeikis have already begun to do just that, having appeared in various films while also appearing on SNL. While it isn’t a huge surprise to hear rumors that they’re set to depart the show after this season, it’s still disappointing.
An upcoming episode of 30 Rock is looking stocked up with guest appearances. The NBC comedy series is set to return for its sixth season this Thursday night and in a few weeks, fans of Emma Stone, Andy Samberg and Nick Cannon will guest star on the show in the same episode.
Great bits from comedians always remain rattling around in my brain and, in light of this post, I can't help but recall Ricky Gervais' TV watching habits of only The Discovery and History Channels, meaning that he knew everything there was to know about sharks and Nazis. Of course Gervais was exaggerating, that's not all these two great channels air... well, except for the former during Shark Week. Here's the first promo...
One of the biggest annual events on television is just around the corner. Yes, Shark Week is coming to Discovery at the end of July, and EW has our first look at this year's host, Andy Samberg...or, sorry, their Chief Shark Officer.
Sidibe does the usual spiel about the musical guest (MGMT, by the way) with Andy Samberg by her side, then alternately propositions Samberg, points a gun at him or tells him to take off his pants
Comedian Andy Samberg will reunite with his former Saturday Night Live co-star when he makes a March guest appearance on Parks & Recreation with Amy Poehler. Samberg will be playing the head of security for Pawnee's parks, putting him at odds with Leslie when she feels he slacked in his duties after a resident is accosted.
