Ken Marino and Judy Greer Could Be in TV Love Forever

Ken Marino and Judy Greer are your dream double date couple-friends too, right? They will be now that Marino's starring in Greer's ABC pilot American Judy. Seriously, though, these two would be a good couple. In real life. I'm not kidding.

So, Judy Greer's Mom Was Sort of a Badass

Has Judy Greer told the writers of Archer all this stuff about her mom that she just told Conan? If not, WHY NOT? They could write that character into the show no problem. Archer would totally hit on an ex-nun nurse with a darkly violent family history. Or a regular nurse, or, you know, a woman with any other profession.

Jenny Slate and Brett Gelman Join Nat Faxon and Judy Greer's FX Pilot

There's a pilot at FX that's lining up one hell of an impressive cast of comedy people.

Great News: An 'Arrested Development' Fan Favorite Character Is Coming Back

ABC Picks Up American Judy Starring Judy Greer as a Cosmopolitan Big-Shot

ABC has picked up American Judy, a pilot starring and executive produced by Judy Greer. She'll play "a cosmopolitan woman who upon getting married becomes a 'fish out of water' in the suburbs, where she has to juggle step-kids, her mother-in-law and her husband’s ex-wife (who also happens to be the town sheriff)." As long as this doesn't prevent her from putting in an appearance in the Arrested Development movie, I am all for it. Especially since the pilot was written by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, the writing team behind the criminally underrated Can't Hardly Wait. Hands in the air if you still sip a drink and [...]

We may not have to "say goodbye to these" for some time.

She even suggests some plotlines: "Maybe there could be another Bluth? I don't know, maybe Kitty did get pregnant? That would be so awesome." Yeah. It would be.

These articles will be written from the perspective of someone watching the episodes sequentially, with no knowledge of future reveals or plot twists. That said, there may be some discussion of running gags or seemingly throwaway jokes, which, given the show's reputation, may very well [...]

The Jeff, Who Lives at Home Trailer: Sad in a Funny Way or Funny in a Sad Way?

Here's the trailer for Jeff, Who Lives at Home, written by the Duplass brothers and starring Jason Segel, Ed Helms and Judy Greer. Looks good! I'm gonna go with "sad in a funny way" but I reserve the right to change my mind if that Porsche scene ends with Judy Greer telling Ed Helms that he can "say goodbye to these!"
