Pam Beesly is one of the fan-favorite characters of the brilliant American sitcom The Office.

Jim Jefferies-Suzanne Martin Comedy, Justin Spitzer’s ‘American Auto’ Get NBC Pilot Orders

  • Deadline
NBC has given pilot green light to two comedies, multi-camera Jefferies, starring Jim Jefferies, from the stand-up comedian, writer-producer Suzanne Martin and Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner’s Hazy Mills; and single-camera American Auto, from Superstore creator Justin Spitzer and Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment. Both projects hail from Universal Television where Hazy Mills and Spitzer are under overall deals.

Jefferies and American Auto both had a put pilot commitment at NBC — six years apart. Jefferies was pitched this past fall, while Spitzer and Kaplan originally teamed up and sold American Auto to NBC in 2013. The script did not go to pilot back then, and Spitzer went on to create another single-camera blue-color workplace comedy series for the network, hit Superstore, now in its fifth season. With Spitzer stepping down as Superstore showrunner last summer to focus on development under his Universal TV overall deal, he and Kaplan took a new stab at American Auto,

Comcast Strategy Sees Streaming Cash Boosting All Ships

  • Deadline
Comcast brass made the bold claim that it is better positioned to push ahead in streaming than any other in the world as it leverages its newly announced Peacock service with divisions across the board, and that’s good news for linear TV too.

Peacock’s ability to tap resources from wireless, cable and broadcast, distribution, programming, tech and international through Sky means, “We could make more money in streaming than anyone else,” insisted chairman-ceo Brian Roberts on Thursday during a conference call with analysts after fourth-quarter earnings.

To start, Comcast will be tying Peacock, which unspools in April, to renewal talks with Mvpd players — and said that there are a lot of deals coming up for renewal.

Peacock revenue, Roberts said, will provide a stream of cash that will make more funds available for linear television.

“It will mean more money for the TV ecosystem [and] to invest in linear systems,

‘Little America’ Creators on Bringing Life to a New American Dream

  • The Wrap
In the episode of the Apple TV+ anthology series “Little America” written by creators Lee Eisenberg, Emily V. Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani, a man goes to battle with a really, really big rock.

Aptly titled “The Rock,” the episode centers on Faraz, an Iranian man who buys a plot of land in Yonkers with big dreams of building his family a house, only to find that removing the giant rock that sits on the land is a far bigger challenge than he’d expected. It’s an intensely idiosyncratic story — the man also sells quail eggs and keeps bees and teaches rollerblading lessons on the side — but one that the creators hope can speak to something bigger.

“This guy wanted to own a piece of America,” Nanjiani said in an interview with TheWrap. “And he gets this place that has a massive rock on it, and then he has to

Netflix Executive Team Shrugs Off ‘Friends’ Exit: Impact Is “Nothing We Can See”

Netflix Executive Team Shrugs Off ‘Friends’ Exit: Impact Is “Nothing We Can See”
The high-profile departure of Friends from Netflix after its run as one of the most-watched shows on the streaming service elicited shrugs from the company’s management team during their fourth-quarter earnings interview Tuesday.

Asked by Michael Morris, the Guggenheim Securities analyst who moderated the earnings interview, whether the show’s exit had affected user engagement, head of content Ted Sarandos replied, “Nothing we can see or we can measure.”

The comment came after the company reported a rise of 8.8 million global subscribers in the fourth quarter. Friends officially went dark on Netflix on January 1 and will resume streaming in the U.S. in May when WarnerMedia launches its subscription streaming entrant, HBO Max.

As the streaming competition intensifies, many analysts and media observers point to avid viewing of titles like The Office, Friends and Gray’s Anatomy — all of which are of leaving Netflix — and questioned how the company will cope.

The Making of ‘Little America’

The Making of ‘Little America’
The anthology series Little America has turned out to be both the first great new show of 2020 and the first great series from AppleTV+. Across its eight-episode first season (Apple has already ordered a second), the series follows immigrants from all over the world as they experience America in different ways, with stories as apt to generate smiles as well as tears.

One of the key creative forces on the series is Lee Eisenberg, who in his days writing for The Office shared responsibility, ironically, for some of that show’s darkest episodes,

2020 SAG Awards TV report: ‘Maisel,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fosse/Verdon’ lead with 2 victories each

2020 SAG Awards TV report: ‘Maisel,’ ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Fosse/Verdon’ lead with 2 victories each
The 26th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards aired Sunday, Jan. 19, honoring acting and stunt achievements in film and television in 2019. And after two straight years with a host, the two-hour show, produced by four-time SAG Award winner Sean Hayes and Todd Milliner, went back to a hostless ceremony this year.

Nominations were determined by the nominating committee — about 2,500 randomly selected members of SAG-aftra every year — and all 121,000 members of the union, which now includes radio and TV personalities, and other media professionals in addition to actors after the 2012 AFTRA merger, are eligible to vote for the winners.

While the SAG Awards are a major precursor to the Oscars on the film side, it was the last stop for most TV folks, whose awards season began at the Emmys in September. “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” which swept the SAG Awards last year, had a field-leading four nominations. “Fleabag” had three bids

A Quiet Place 3 Might Be On The Cards Says John Krasinski

“Your father will always protect you. Your father will always protect you. Always.”

Named as Rotten Tomatoes’ best-reviewed horror movie in 2018, A Quiet Place was nothing short of a monumental success for writer-director-actor, John Krasinski. With a huge box office haul of over $340 million, off a budget of around only $20 million, it’s clear why a sequel was ultimately greenlit by Paramount.

And with A Quiet Place: Part II on track for its scheduled March 20th release, questions have now arisen regarding a third outing in the critically acclaimed science fiction horror series. Interestingly, The Office star – who co-wrote and directed the first duo of flicks – says he’s open to the idea of A Quiet Place 3.

Courtesy of Total Film, Krasinski explained that he “set up a couple of tiny Easter eggs” in A Quiet Place: Part II that “would allow for more mythology” and a possible third movie.

The Office: The Worst Things The Women Of Dunder Mifflin Ever Did

The characters on The Office often get up to a lot of inappropriate and unprofessional things while at work as well as outside of it. These characters are often over the top, with a few who are more realistic and normal, and this leads to a lot of hilarious situations. While most of the main characters are men, so they often get talked about as doing some pretty bad things, the women of Dunder Mifflin also have their bad moments.

Coming to ‘Little America’, As Told By the Apple TV+ Anthology’s Executive Producers
Debuting today, Apple TV+’s latest original offering is the eight-episode anthology series “Little America.” Based on the first-person photo essay feature of the same name from Epic Magazine, “Little America” is a slice of life series that dramatizes real-life immigrant stories. As Apple TV+ describes it, the series goes beyond current events headlines “to look at the funny, romantic, heartfelt, inspiring and unexpected lives of immigrants in America, at a time when their stories are more relevant than ever.”

Born out of an idea from showrunner and executive producer Lee Eisenberg, “Little America” is also executive produced by Alan Yang, Kumail Nanjiani (“The Big Sick”), Emily V. Gordon (“The Big Sick”), and Epic Magazine co-founders Joshuah Bearman and Joshua Davis. How it all came to screen is a tale of how personal histories inevitably intertwine with projects that most resonate with creatives.

Why Peacock’s Bet on Ad-Supported Streaming Could Be Genius Move

  • The Wrap
NBCUniversal’s new Peacock streaming service is still months away from its attempt to win over viewers in an increasingly saturated streaming market, but it’s already made a strong first impression with Wall Street analysts. Peacock, which NBCU execs like chairman Steve Burke unveiled Thursday at its 30 Rockefeller Plaza headquarters in New York, will launch on April 15 for Comcast Xfinity X1 and Flex subscribers, before rolling out nationwide on July 15 — about a week before the 2020 Tokyo Olympics kick off. NBCUniversal unveiled a deluge of shows and films — both original and classic — that will be available on the platform at launch, and in the year to come. Old titles such as “The Office,” “Parks and Recreation” and “Battlestar Galactica,” as well as new revivals like the “Saved by the Bell” and “Punky Brewster” were already known. What has analysts especially intrigued, though, is Peacock’s multi-pronged pricing structure. A free option,

Director John Krasinski discusses the possibility of A Quiet Place Part III

  • JoBlo
Although John Krasinski is a multi-faceted talent in the entertainment landscape, I don't think audiences really appreciated that fact until a few years ago. Despite serious roles in films like 13 Hours and Detroit, Krasinski still carried the stigma of being "Jim from The Office." Then A Quiet Place came along in 2018 and blew people away. Suddenly audiences took notice of Krasinski's…
