Warning: You’re going to fall hard for Ellie Kemper on this. She’s absolutely adorable in the trailer. How can you not feel for a woman who has an inexplicable fear of velcro ;)

The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt was originally going to air on NBC but Netflix snatched up the Tina Fey-produced comedy. Their gain is definitely the peacock’s loss. It’s too early to judge a sitcom based on a few seconds but I have a feeling this is going to be another hit for the streaming service.

Kemper plays a woman rescued from an apocalypse cult who starts her life over as a nanny for an Upper East socialite played by Jane Karkowski. The latter isn’t the only alum from 30 Rock on the show. Tituss Burgess who played D’Fawn on the NBC sitcom reunites with Fey and Krakowski for this charming gem.

Check out the first trailer below. The series debuts March 6.

Don’t like the high expectations of New Years Eve? Planning on avoiding the huge parties and opting instead for a quiet night home in front of the television. If the idea, however, of watching Ryan Seacrest in Times Square nauseates you, spend the evening with Netflix.

Like clockwork every month, the streaming service pulls several titles from their library. A few of my favorites expiring January 1, 2015 include Titanic, You’ve Got Mail, Hitch, The Wedding Planner, Big Trouble In Little China, the original Can’t Buy Me Love and Red Dawn, Roman Holiday, Gladiator and The Breakfast Club.

If you still have the Christmas spirit, revisit Love, Actually one more time. That holiday classic is also getting the heave ho. Check out below all the titles receiving the axe. Weigh in afterward on which ones you’ll miss the most.

benedict-cumberbatch-doctor-strange

It’s been a busy week for big budget superhero flicks. Earlier this week, Warner Bros finally confirmed the crew starring in Suicide Squad. Now comes a trio of major cast announcements for comic book television and movie adaptations.

First comes confirmation of Benedict Cumberbatch’s involvement in Marvel’s upcoming film Doctor Strange. Reportedly, the 38-year-old actor beat out Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto, Tom Hardy and several others for the part. Don’t feel too bad for Leto and Hardy. Both actors rebounded by snagging roles in Suicide Squad together.

Doctor Strange is a brilliant neurosurgeon whose career is destroyed. He gets a new lease on life when he becomes Sorcerer Supreme and ends up protecting Earth against magical and mystical threats with powers of sorcery, mysticism, and martial arts. The film is slated to hit theaters on July 8, 2015.

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.

Netflix Orders Live Action Richie Rich Series

In: Donovan, TV Shows

I’m a little ashamed I’m going to say this, but the second I discovered this, I shouted out in glee… inside of course ;) Richie Rich was one of my favorite comics to collect as a child.

The world’s richest kid is getting the Hollywood treatment once again. The classic cartoon character previously inspired two animated series and the live-action 1994 film starring Macaulay Culkin.

Netflix is altering the backstory a little for its adaptation. Richie Rich won’t be the son of a wealthy industrialist. Instead, he’ll be self-sufficient. As a result of inventing a “cool new green technology” he’s earned a trillion dollars. The show will follow his adventures with his friends as he “moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever,” reads the press release. Check out the cast after the jump.

netflix-marco-polo-trailer

Who knew 13th century China could be so exciting and sexy for that matter? Netflix just unveiled the first trailer for their new series Marco Polo and it looks like it’ll be the streaming service’s next big hit.

Newcomer Lorenzo Richelmy plays the titular explorer. The series follows Polo on his adventures through Kublai Khan’s court. As the release states, we get a glimpse into Marco’s “greatest adventure of all.” Benedict Wong plays Chinese emperor in the 10-episode period original series. It promises to be a thrilling, violent and entertaining affair.

The entire first season will be available to binge watch starting at 12:01 a.m. PT on Friday, December 12 on Netflix. I’m definitely going to carve out some time to watch it during the hectic holiday season. Check out the trailer below.

friends-netflix-streaming

They said they’ll be there for you, and pretty soon, they’ll only be a click away. Netflix announced it’ll start streaming all 236 episodes from the sitcom’s 10 seasons starting January 1, 2015. That’s roughly 83 hours. I know how I’ll be nursing my New Years Eve hangover ;) Sure, I have all the DVDs, but this is far more convenient. What can I say? I’m a lazy bitch ;)

The internet streaming service shared the awesome news with a video featuring The Rembrandts singing the comedy’s theme song. Naturally, Gunther makes an appearance in the clip, serving java as he’s done throughout the series’ run.

As if Friends being available whenever I want wasn’t fantastic enough, fans will get a chance to check out the “lost” episodes where Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) “became a thing.” Who else is excited?

Check out the video announcement below, along with Warner Bros’ recent clip celebrating 236 seconds of the show and NBC’s look back at the sitcom before the series finale aired. Enjoy.
