It's been eight months since HBO canceled writer/director Mike White's critically-acclaimed series Enlightened, but White is already getting back into business with the network. HBO is developing a new comedy series called Mr. Romance that White will executive produce, THR reports. The potential show will be co-written by Murray Miller (Girls, American Dad) and Casper Christensen (Klovn). Mr. Romance is based on Joshua Bearman's 2010 McSweeney's article, "The Only Muscle I Can't Control: In Search of the Next Romance Novel Cover Man." The original story is nonfiction covering the 14th annual Mr. Romance Cover Model Competition. There's no word on the plot of Mr. Romance, which will be fictional. Hopefully, if the project does go to series, HBO treats it better than they did Enlightened.
Tim & Eric debuted a new web series on their YouTube channel JASH today. Called Dr. Wareheim, each episode features Tim Heidecker visiting his digustingly gross doctor, Eric Wareheim.
Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues happens to be coming out right during awards season, and the studio behind the movie is actually campaigning for a "Best Original Song" Oscar nomination. Check out Paramount's "For Your Consideration" site to hear "Doby," a funny, overblown song from Anchorman 2 that Will Ferrell sings with backup from a childrens' choir. Ferrell and McKay co-wrote the song with the movie's composers, John Nau and Andrew Feltenstein. An Oscar nomination for the comedic song wouldn't be too surprising as the comedy Ted was nominated for "Best Original Song" last year and The Muppets won the category the year before.
Anchorman 2's soundtrack doesn't come out until December 17th, but it features several more original songs from the movie. That's no surprise considering that Ferrell and McKay originally wanted to do Anchorman 2 as a Broadway musical for six months and then go film the movie afterwards. The soundtrack features Ron Burgundy songs "Have an American Night" and "Life Isn't a Fairy Tale," a Burgundy/Fantana duet called "Ladykillers," a Burgundy/Tamland duet called "RV Reminiscing," and a cover of Christopher Cross's "Ride Like the Wind" by Ron Burgundy and Robin Thicke, which will also be made into a music video. Check out the full soundtrack listing (via The Playlist) below: READ MORE
Despite some early Oscar talk and some visually compelling trailers, Ben Stiller's new movie Secret Life of Walter Mitty has been receiving mixed/negative reviews so far.

Louis C.K. will be staying at FX for a while. The comedian/filmmaker just signed a new multi-year deal with FX to exclusively develop pilots and potential series for the network (or new sister channel FXX) via his production company Pig Newton, Variety reports. Under the deal, C.K. will have the option to serve as writer and/or director on any projects he develops for FX in addition to executive producer duties. Although C.K. is bound to FX for future TV work, the deal allows him to go outside of the network to release his standup specials. C.K.'s show, Louie, is set to return to FX for a 13-episode fourth season in May.
