The premise of ABC’s new half-hour comedy SELFIE, premiering Tuesday September 30 at 8 PM, may sound a little familiar to anyone familiar with the musical MY FAIR LADY and/or its play progenitor PYGMALION, though there’s a contemporary twist. Eliza (Karen Gillan, previously of DOCTOR WHO) still has Henry (John Cho) helping her remake her image. However, rather than a Cockney flower seller, this Eliza is addicted to social media, so much so that she lacks skills to interact with actual human beings. Henry tries to help Eliza become someone who can make real friends, and Eliza tries to help […]Read On »

As NBC begins to transition from its aging comedy series to finding the next big breakout hits, change is inevitable. And even though THE OFFICE, PARKS AND RECREATION, COMMUNITY (now on Fridays) and 30 ROCK are critics darlings, ratings have been on the decline and NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt says they are looking to find broader based shows to fill those holes if and when those series go off the air. “The Thursday night shows are great shows,” says Greenblatt speaking at this week’s NBCUniversal Summer 2012 Press Tour. “They’re award-winning and incredibly sophisticated and clever, and we couldn’t […]Read On »

With COMMUNITY  getting new showrunners, only a 13-episode commitment and a new timeslot on Fridays, the question remains – how committed is NBC to the ground-breaking and highly original series? At today’s NBCUniversal Summer 2012 Press Tour, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt discussed the COMMUNITY situation and what’s happening with NBC’s comedy slate in general “I think we’re going to transition with our comedy programming trying to broaden the audience and broaden what the network does,” says Greenblatt. “Those Thursday comedies [30 ROCK, PARKS AND RECREATION, THE OFFICE), which the critics love and we love, tend to be a bit […]Read On »
