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.

Truthfully, I don’t even care what Sisters is all about. The fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler star in the film along with fellow Saturday Night Live alums Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph and Kate McKinnon is enough to motivate me to buy a ticket. It’s a good thing plot isn’t important to me because the first teaser trailer doesn’t divulge much.

Fey and Poehler play estranged sisters who find out their parents are about to sell their childhood home. They decide to relive their hey day one more time by throwing one last party at their house. The film previously titled The Next hits theaters this Christmas. Check out the first teaser for Sisters below.

72nd Golden Globes: Complete Winners List

2015-golden-globes-winners

The Tina Fey/Amy Poehler hosting trilogy came to an end Sunday night. The hilarious duo ended their reign by presiding over another memorable show.

Just like two years ago, the four major broadcast networks walked away with nothing. HBO which is normally a big winner only snagged one award. FX, Showtime and Amazon lead the way with two awards apiece. The latter’s Transparent became the first streaming series to win a major series prize- comedy series, along with best actor for Jeffrey Tambor.

The CW scored its first Golden Globe ever, winning TV comedy actress for Jane the Virgin. It’s star, Gina Rodriguez, is the eighth person in the last 11 years to win the category for the first season.

The night saw several upsets including Showtime’s The Affair winning for Best Drama Series, How To Train Your Dragon 2 besting the popular Lego Movie and much more. It definitely made it a difficult night to predict winners. I didn’t do very well at our viewing party and only scored 10/25. One of my worst showing in years.

Some of the night’s other big winners were Amy Adams, Matt Bomer, Kevin Spacey, Michael Keaton and Julianne Moore. Check out all the winners below.

2015-golden-globes

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are back for a third time to host the Golden Globes. Hopefully, their stint doesn’t end as a trilogy and somehow NBC convinces them to sign on for more years. Not only is their turn well received by critics, but by viewers as well. Last year saw a 10-year high for the telecast.

The 2015 Golden Globes air live on January 11 on NBC. Kelsey Grammer’s daughter Greer Grammer was recently named Miss Golden Globe 2015 while George Clooney is this year’s recipient of the Cecil B. DeMille Award.

For the first promo, the comedic duo joke about what they’re wearing for the big night. Both spout out hilarious nonsensical fashion jargon complete with faux designer names. Check it out below.

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.

Movie Review: This Is Where I Leave You

this-is-where-i-leave-you-movie-review

This is Where I Leave You hit theatres this week and having witnessed some of the director’s past transgressions such as Cheaper by the Dozen and Night at the Museum I had my hesitations. The film features an all-star cast so at least I had that to look forward to.

The film, adapted from the novel by Jonathan Topper, tells the story of a dysfunctional family brought together by the death of their not so religious father whose last request was that the family sit Shiva, the seven day Jewish mourning period. As you can expect hilarity ensues as the family struggles to cope with being around each other while also dealing with their own personal issues.

Tina Fey Gets Witchy For Disney

In: Donovan, Movies

Rumors of Tina Fey developing a Hocus Pocus sequel have been greatly exaggerated. In fact, Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t even currently in the works by anyone for Disney. However, Fey has teamed up with the Mouse House for a bewitching movie of her own.

Deadline.com uncovered that Fey has teamed up with Cinderella producer Allison Shearmur for a supernatural-themed feature film in the vein of Ghostbusters. Tentatively, it’s being referred to as Untitled Witch Project. Fey will not only produce the film but will also star in it. If Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler or Kathy Najimy somehow get involved, expect those Hocus Pocus rumors to resurface once again.

What do you think of this new project from Tina Fey? Witches are certainly hot these days. Tina can certainly give them a hilarious spin. Bummed that Hocus Pocus 2 isn’t in the works? Sound off below.

Based on the book of the same name by Jonathan Tropper, the story follows four siblings who come together for a week of sitting Shiva to bond/mourn the death of their father. Tropper himself adapted his novel for the script. Playing the colorful combative siblings are Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver and Corey Stoll. Taking the role of the matriarch is Jane Fonda complete with ‘bionic breasts.’

This Is Where I Leave You is full of hilarious awkward moments typically found in a family-oriented dramedy. Rounding out the cast are Connie Britton, Rose Byrne, Kathryn Hahn, Timothy Olyphant, Abigail Spencer and Dax Shepard. The Shawn Levy-directed film hits theaters on September 12. Check out the amusing trailer below.
