Adult Swim announced that they'll be airing a couple of pilots from Adult Swim stars later this month. The first, Filthy Sexy Teen$, is a riff on Pretty Little Liars created by Paul Scheer and his NTSF:SD:SUV compatriots Jonathan Stern and Curtis Gwinn. Adult Swim hasn't ordered the pilot to series yet, but they're airing the pilot, which stars Marshall Allman, Hannah Kasulka, Steven Yeun, Johnny Pemberton, Casey Wilson, and Chris Parnell, on Thursday, October 10th at 12:15am.
The other Adult Swim pilot airing this month is for Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories, a Twilight Zone-esque anthology series created by and starring Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim that has [...]
Paul Scheer must be the comedic actor everyone can agree on because as of publication he’s appeared in shows on the following networks: MTV, Fox, Comedy Central, IFC, Adult Swim, NBC, FX, E!, HBO, ABC and Starz.
Sure, some of those are blink-and-you’ll-miss-him bit parts, but there are also plenty of starring roles, including his portrayal of Dr. Andre Nowzick on FX’s The League, as well as Trent Hauser on Adult Swim’s NTSF:SD:SUV, a show he also created.
Like many of today’s TV comedy regulars, Scheer got his start at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York. It’s become the norm for UCB talent to appear in [...]
It’s Wednesday, ya’ll, and that means you’re in for a web video treat!

Featuring original content from some of the biggest names in comedy (Sarah Silverman, Tim and Eric, Reggie Watts!), it’s what all web video should be. And with only 25,000 subscribers and 46 videos to date, you’ve got the chance to jump in on the ground floor. I suggest getting your feet wet with Paul Scheer’s The ArScheerio Paul Show (recently covered [...]
The Paley Center for Media, which has locations in both New York and LA, dedicates itself to the preservation of television and radio history. Inside their vast archives of more than 150,000 television shows, commercials, and radio programs, there are thousands of important and funny programs waiting to be rediscovered by comedy nerds like you and me.

The FX network just announced that it's picked up its long-running sitcom The League for a fifth season. Season 5 will kick off (get it? it's a sports show) next fall and run for 13 episodes. The League creators Jackie and Jeff Schaffer told fans they have big, mysterious plans for the first episode of Season 5 in a Reddit AMA in October, saying, "We pitched the Season 5 premiere episode to FX back in May when we presented all 13 of Season 4. They're crazy if they don't let you guys see that show. It will be insane." The League's double-episode Season 4 finale airs tonight [...]
