Bless This Mess Is the Most Wonderful Comedy You're Not Watching
I've always had a soft spot for half-hour comedies. Whether it's Seinfeld or Schitt's Creek, there's something intensely comforting about watching a group of characters crack jokes and overcome challenges in a tight 22 minutes. Now that we find ourselves universally in need of something warm and fuzzy, I have a recommendation for a show that's gone painfully under the radar for too long: Bless This Mess on ABC. If you just came here looking for a recommendation, there it is. Go watch it on Hulu now. If you need more convincing, read on.

Bless This Mess kicked off on ABC during the Spring TV season last year, meaning it didn't get the mega-marketing push that is granted to a lot of Fall TV releases. It's a fish-out-of-water story starring Dax Shepard and Lake Bell as Mike and Rio, two New Yorkers who move to Nebraska to take over the farm once managed by Mike's family.

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Are True Friendship Goals and We Have the Pictures to Prove It!

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler Are True Friendship Goals and We Have the Pictures to Prove It!
Three cheers for Tina Fey! Today is her birthday and we think that's a cause for celebration, don't you? Beginning in the late '90s, circa 1997 to be exact, Fey has been making us laugh as a writer on Saturday Night Live and then a star on the sketch comedy show and our world hasn't been the same since...thank goodness. After SNL, the fierce female took comedy to the next level with her own series, 30 Rock, and films like Mean Girls, Baby Mama, Sisters and more as an actress, writer and producer. Oh, and then there was Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. Clearly, Fey has been keeping herself busy, but she hasn't been doing it all alone. She's had one of the funniest...

Isla Fisher, Matt Walsh to Star in Comedy ‘Unplugging’
Isla Fisher and Matt Walsh will star in a new comedy from award-winning editor Debra Neil-Fisher, titled “Unplugging.”

Radiant Film International will handle foreign sales at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival; The Gersh Agency and UTA Independent will co-represent domestic sales.

So Dan plans a quiet, relaxing weekend in a remote mountain town with no kids, no phones and no social media. Of course, everything goes crazy as cranky locals and strong edibles get thrown in the mix.

Netflix: 10 Best Movies And TV Shows Leaving In March

In addition, Disney continues to pull films from the streaming service ahead of the launch of their own competitor streaming service, Disney +, which means that both the recent live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast, and another of the Pirates of the Caribbean films are both leaving this March. While there are also plenty of new series and films arriving over the next few weeks, these are the best of the ones that fans must bid farewell to.

‘Manhunt’ Anthology Series Nears 2-Season Pickup At Charter From Lionsgate With Eric Rudolph As Next Subject

‘Manhunt’ Anthology Series Nears 2-Season Pickup At Charter From Lionsgate With Eric Rudolph As Next Subject
Exclusive: Charter Communications continues to ramp up the original scripted series slate for its Spectrum cable systems. I have learned that the company is in advanced negotiations with Lionsgate Television for a two-season order to anthology series Manhunt. I hear the first of the two 10-episode seasons would chronicle the manhunt for domestic terrorist Eric Rudolph, known as the Olympic Park Bomber. It will be shepherded by the core creative team behind Manhunt: Unabomber, led by executive producer John Goldwyn and writer/executive producer Andrew Sodroski. Reps for Charter and Lionsgate declined comment.

Manhunt was originally set at Discovery Channel with its first installment, the 2017 Unabomber, marking the cable network’s first limited scripted series. Manhunt: Unabomber, starring Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany, drew strong reviews, delivered respectable numbers on Discovery and reportedly also did well in its Svod window on Netflix.

Film Review: ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation’
In the first “Hotel Transylvania,” Count Dracula’s refusal to conform to the clichés of vampire legend was a mantra for the whole movie, a fast-paced and joke-filled riff on monster mythos that, in its best moments, played like a self-contained Looney Tunes version of “Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein.” After that mildly pleasant surprise, the sequel mostly abandoned the monster hotel conceit in favor of a lackadaisical venture into the human world and Drac’s vain attempt to coax fangs out of his half-human grandson. Now “Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation,” by far the worst of the series, spends virtually no time in the hotel and runs out of commentary on classic monsters, despite renewing the rivalry between Dracula and the vampire slayer Van Helsing. In the dead of summer, younger audiences won’t likely care that it’s blah, blah, blah, and it seems destined to drain another $150 million out of parents’ pockets.
