Netflix Snags Tina Fey’s NBC Comedy

In: Donovan, TV Shows
unbreakable-kimmy-schmidt

Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s comedy Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was originally slated to debut midseason on NBC. The peacock network gave Fey a straight-to-series commitment for her new project when it ordered it earlier this year. So, it’s a little puzzling why it’s moving to Netflix. It’s not like the network has a riches in successful comedies on their schedule.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to debut Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt exclusively on Netflix, which has proven to be such an outstanding place for distinctive, original programming,” Fey and Carlock said in a statement. “Happily, we will still collaborate with our longtime partners at Universal Television to fulfill Netflix’s two-season order. We grew up at NBC and will continue to develop broadcast projects with them as well. We found the inspiration for this series in Ellie Kemper’s shining all-American face, and we know that she and Kimmy Schmidt have found their best possible home at Netflix.”

All 13 episodes of the first season will be available to stream sometime in March 2015. Ellie Kemper, of The Office and Bridesmaids fame, plays a woman who starts a new life in New York City after leaving a doomsday cult. Tituss Burgess, Lauren Adams, Sara Chase, Sol Miranda, Carol Kane and Tina’s former 30 Rock colleague Jane Krakowski round out the cast. Read below to learn NBC’s reason why the series is changing mediums.

2014-american-music-awards

The 2014 American Music Awards were handed out Sunday night at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles with Pitbull presiding over the ceremonies once again. Heading into the evening, Iggy Azalea led the pack with six AMA nominations. One Direction, however, ended up being the night’s big winner, taking home three awards- Artist of the Year, Favorite Pop/Rock Band/Duo/Group, and Favorite Pop/Rock Album for Midnight Memories.

Unlike the VMAs though, Azalea didn’t go home empty-handed this time. The Aussie femcee won two categories. Taylor Swift also got in on the action by earning the event’s most prestigious honor. The legendary Diana Ross presented the “Blank Space” singer with the first-ever Dick Clark Award of Excellence!

Katy Perry and Sam Smith took home honors for Favorite Pop/Rock Female Artist and Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist respectively. Check out all the winners below.

In between all the acceptance speeches, there was a whopping 18 performances crammed into the three-hour telecast. There was something for everyone with artists ranging from teen dreams 5 Seconds of Summer to R&B veteran Mary J. Blige. My favorites of the night were Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Sam Smith, Jennifer Lopez, Iggy Azalea and Jessie J reuniting with Nicki Minaj and Grande.

On the flip side, I took bathroom breaks during Selena Gomez, Magic! and Fergie‘s set. Was it me, or did the Duchess move awkwardly slow and look a tad stiff? No disrespect but she looked like Iggy’s grandmother on stage. Check out the performances below.

The Queen Latifah Show Canceled Once Again

In: Donovan, TV Shows
queen-latifah-show-canceled

Queen Latifah just can’t get past that two-year hump. For the second time, The Queen Latifah Show has been canceled. The daytime talk program will shut down production at the end of the year, with broadcasts ending in March. Her first talk show ran from 1999-2001.

Had it not been for a two-year deal she inked for the show, I’m pretty sure it would’ve been canceled during its freshman season. Honestly, it’s not very good. Clearly hosting a talk show isn’t in the cards for Latifah. Maybe the third time’s a charm.

In such a crowded market, it’s getting harder and harder to successfully launch a new chatfest. Katie Couric, Bethenny Frankel and countless others couldn’t do it. Hopefully, Meredith Vieira has better luck. Latifah whose real name is Dana Owens posted a note on her Facebook. Read it below.

greer-grammer-miss-golden-globe

Every year the Hollywood Foreign Press Association picks a spawn of Hollywood’s elite to assist on stage during the live ceremony. During the first event of the Golden Globes Awards season held at Fig & Olive in West Hollywood, Greer Grammer was named Miss Golden Globe 2015. She’s the daughter of Frasier actor Kelsey Grammer and Barrie Buckner. Kelsey dated Barrie after his first of three divorces. The 22-year-old was named after actress Greer Garson.

“I am flattered to have been chosen by the HFPA for this year’s Miss Golden Globe,” said an excited Greer. “It’s truly an honor to be included in this experience that so many incredible men and women have been a part of.”

Greer currently stars in the MTV series Awkward. She will next be seen in the upcoming An Evergreen Christmas with Naomi Judd and Robert Loggia which will be released this Christmas, and in the new season of ABC Family’s Melissa and Joey. The rising star also appeared in Life Partners with Leighton Meester and Adam Brody.

After an exhaustive search, Ellen DeGeneres finally hired a new gardener earlier this week. It’s about time. Her bushes were getting out of control ;)

I don’t blame the talk show host for dragging out the well-publicized search. All the sexy submissions of shirtless men have undoubtedly given the show great exposure (literally and figuratively).

Derek Yates beat everyone to snag the vacant gig left by Nick aka Bill Reilich while he’s filming Magic Mike XXL. Speaking of which, I thought production had already wrapped shooting. Oh well. I guess he’s too big to come back :) Who is Derek you ask? The 30-year-old is an actor slash model. He’s also a philanthropist who started a non-profit after his brother was killed in an accident by an impaired driver.

Check out more pics of Yates below, along with his crowning moment. Weigh in if you think DeGeneres picked the right person for the job out of the Final 3 contenders.

evan-peters-covers-nirvana

On American Horror Story: Freak Show we’ve seen the cast cover David Bowie, Fiona Apple and Lana Del Rey so far. On last night’s episode, the FX anthology took on Nirvana. It was Evan Peters’ turn to step up to the mic to show off his vocal chops. I have to say, he did the grunge classic “Come As You Are” justice. I can’t wait for Kathy Bates to show what she’s got in an upcoming episode when she covers Hole’s “Doll Parts.”

If you’ve been scratching your head trying to figure out Ryan Murphy’s decision-making process for why he chooses the songs, he recently revealed his reasons to Entertainment Weekly. “We decided we only were going to highlight musical artists who at some point in their career had identified themselves as feeling like freaks or misfits or outcasts, which our people are going through,” Murphy shares. Kinda makes sense, doesn’t it?

If you missed Peters’ performance, give it a whirl below. And if you have, give it another spin. Definitely worth it. It’s one of my favorites this season, in addition to Sarah Paulson’s “Criminal.”

taylor-swift-victorias-secret-fashion-show

Is Taylor Swift clairvoyant or something? During last year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show performance, the 24-year-old singer joined Fall Out Boy wearing a Union Jack-inspired outfit. Did she already know that the annual event would be holding the 2014 extravaganza in London? Based on the fact she’s once again booked for the show, conspiracy theorists would tend to think so.

At this point, Swift might as well become an honorary VS Angel given her back-to-back performances and close friendships with supermodels Karlie Kloss and Lily Aldridge. Find out who else is on tap to hit the stage at the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show below.

antm-cycle-21-22-renewal

After the CW cast America’s Next Top Model to Fridays during the Summer, I thought it was on its last svelte legs. Leave it to Tyra Banks to reinvent it by implementing social media scores and including men in the cast. Bravo on the latter.

In addition, the network’s decision to air it only once a year also made fans actually crave for the next cycle. Witnessing all of Banks’ antics only once a year is the perfect amount. All of these changes seem to have worked in the show’s favor.

The CW just announced it’s ordered a 22nd cycle of ANTM. Once again, it’ll feature men and women. Dates for the start of production and premiere will be announced at a later date.
