Judd Apatow and Amy Poehler's 'Sick in the Head' Pilot Was a Real, Funny Thing

"I am in New York writing a pilot for the Fox network called Sick in the Head. It's about a very young therapist with no life experience. The president of Fox, Peter Roth, is a great guy. He loves the show. Got a call from my old friend Paul Feig today. He said he wrote a television pilot and he's sending it to me. There is nothing worse than reading your friends' scripts. They are always terrible." – Judd Apatow, in his "diary," October 16, 1998

Between the years of 1998 and 2001, The Ben Stiller Show and The Larry Sanders Show writer/executive producer Judd Apatow created five [...]

Check Out "Al Qaeda Meeting" from Last Night's 'Key and Peele' Finale

The first half of Key and Peele's fourth season wrapped up on Comedy Central last night, and in case you missed it, check out the above sketch "Al Qaeda Meeting" featuring Key, Peele, David Krumholtz, and more as a group of terrorists plotting against their toughest enemy yet: the TSA.

CBS Pulls the Plug on 'Partners'

Deadline reports that CBS is canceling its new Monday night sitcom Partners. The low-rated series, starring David Krumholtz, Michael Urie, Sophia Bush, and Brandon Routh, follows a pair architecture partners/best friends – one gay, one straight – and their significant others. In addition to not faring well in the Nielsen ratings, Partners, CBS's only new fall comedy, also scored low with critics. Deadline suspects that Partners' timeslot will be filled with CBS's old standby Rules of Engagement before the new comedy Friend Me makes its debut in the slot at midseason. Partners is the third sitcom cancellation of the season after NBC pulled both Animal Practice and the unaired Dane Cook vehicle [...]

IFC Is Developing a Show Starring David Krumholtz as a Jewish Grandmother

IFC just announced they're developing a new show, and it sounds pretty strange. In a press release today, the network revealed that they've ordered a presentation for a new comedy series called Gigi's Bucket List, which stars David Krumholtz as "72-year-old Jewish grandmother 'Gigi' from Boca Raton, FL pursuing everything she deprived herself of throughout her life after discovering millions in her dead husband’s bank account."

Jason Segel, Emma Watson, and David Krumholtz Maybe to Die in James Franco's Apartment

Emma Watson, Jason Segel, and David Krumholtz are going to play themselves in Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg's End of the World, which used to be know as The Apocolypse and before that Jay and Seth vs. the Apocalypse. The three, along with the already announced crew of Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, and Aziz Ansari, are all guests at James Franco's house party when the apocalypse comes, which stinks because that means they aren't coming to my apocalypse party. The bright side is some of them are supposed to die, which I read to mean that ALL OF THEM WILL DIE but in a [...]
