Expect both Other Space and Sin City Saints to hit the Yahoo Screen airwaves next year. At this point, Yahoo is saying they’ll all be released at once, so have your binge clothes ready.
Looking at the reunion photos of the cast of Freaks and Geeks, one thing is very clear. These actors definitely did not peak in high school, in spite of the fact that the Paul Feig-created comedy didn't make it through its freshman season. The whole cast got back together for an upcoming Judd Apatow-focused issue of Vanity Fair.
The first episode of Freaks And Geeks essentially drops the audience into the middle of a story. It doesn’t begin with a grandiose or life-changing moment, and it doesn’t pause to fill in the details. It just lets viewers watch, and through careful screenwriting, makes them understand. It’s not about what choices the characters make, it’s about why they make them and what they hope to get out of them.
Martin Starr, one of my favorite, and surely one of the most underappreciated and underused comedic supporting actors, has just signed on to do a guest spot on one of my favorite sitcoms, NBC's Community. The former Party Down-er and member of the "Apatow troupe" will be at Greendale Community College for (at least) one episode in the upcoming third season.
Judd Apatow, current A-list raunch director and one-time creator of brilliant but prematurely canceled television shows, has revealed a live Freaks And Geeks reunion is coming together for the 2011 William S. Paley Television Festival
IFC announced today that they have acquired the rights to air the excellent (but sadly short-lived) dramedy series Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. Both created by popular filmmaker Judd Apatow (before he was popular), neither show lasted more than a season on TV before cancellation.
I’m not really all that surprised to see that Busy Philipps has been signed on for a new series. She’s been keeping pretty busy (heh) since her F&G days. She’s had roles in a number of other shows, including Dawson’s Creek, Love, Inc, ER, and more recently, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. She’s also been seen in some films, including He’s Just Not That Into You.
