TV's craziest fake medical drama is about to get even crazier. This week, Adult Swim released info on Season 5 of Childrens Hospital, which is set to debut sometime in July, and the entire season takes place at a pediatric clinic on a U.S. Army base in Japan. It sounds pretty incredible and exactly like the kind of ambitious, unconventional stuff this show is known for. Here's a description of the season via Adult Swim:
Childrens Hospital returns for its fifth season to find the doctors relocated to a pediatric clinic on a U.S. Army base in Osaka, Japan. With the loss of recently murdered co-worker Dr. Blake Downs [...]
Here's the brand new trailer for Rapturepalooza, a comedy starring Craig Robinson, Anna Kendrick, John Francis Daley, and Rob Corddry that hits theaters later this year. This is just one of two apocalypse movies Craig Robinson is in this year. It's estimated that 50% of comedies released in 2013 will be apocalyptic comedies.
American treasure Rob Corddry wrote a guide to "America's Douchiest Bars" for Rundown.com, spotlighting some of the country's least-refined alcohol establishments. Corddry didn't limit it just to bar he dislikes either, including L.A.'s Bar Brix on the list before clarifying, "Just kidding. I love this joint. I hope the fine people that work there who ply me with wine and thick, delicious pork appreciate that a plug is a plug regardless of the title of an article."
After a series of billboards and bus ads for Rob Corddry’s Adult Swim series Childrens Hospital were plastered up all over L.A., a real hospital called Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) has, according to TMZ, received multiple complaints from people who didn’t know the TV show wasn’t affiliated with them (or that blood-covered clown doctors aren't a real thing and Henry Winkler – TV's The Fonz – doesn’t work there). Here’s the internal memo CHLA put out:
It has been brought to our attention that there is some confusion surrounding a series of area billboards and bus stop advertisements promoting the adult television show Childrens Hospital. Please be advised that [...]
Continuing its track record of perfect guest star casting, Rob "Dry Cord" Corddry is going have a multi-episode arc on Happy Endings. He'll play a "legendary" "Car Czar," which is the show's totes norm way of describing a car salesmen, who hires Jane to sell cars, a job she def won't be intense doing (j. kidding). Also, Rachael Harris is going to stop by to play [SPOILER ALERTING YOUR EYES] Alex and Dave's real estate agent. Say whaaaaaat? Cah-razy. So are they just going to get engaged again and have another wedding, which also won't go well, ultimately resetting the show, like it was "The One" in [...]
In January, news came out that a Hot Tub Time Machine sequel was in the works, but now, star Craig Robinson has revealed to Collider that the sequel is official and filming is scheduled to begin in June. The previous report on Hot Tub Time Machine 2 was that Robinson, Rob Corddry, and Clark Duke would be the focus of the new movie with John Cusack not reprising his role, but when Robinson was asked this weekend if Cusack is returning, he responded, "Negotiations are still going, and everybody's involved." The original movie's director Steve Pink is expected to return and to co-write the script with [...]
Community's Ken Jeong has booked a new sitcom pilot that could wind up being a new fall show. Deadline reports that Jeong has been cast in the ABC pilot Spy, based on the British comedy of the same name. The show stars Rob Corddry as the father of a highly-intelligent child (Mason Cook), who takes a job at the Secret Service in order to prove himself to his son. Jeong will play Corddry's mischievous boss, The Examiner. Paget Brewster and comedian Moshe Kasher have also joined the cast.
Gajillionaires is a new animated series coming to Comedy Central next year about a couple of super-rich old white brothers (who are definitely not based on the Koch brothers) and their adventures in conservatism. This here is the original pilot/presentation made for the network. Obviously, Comedy Central liked it, as it was picked up to series. And with good reason! This quick look is really fun, it'll be great to see it expanded into a full show. And the voice talent! Rob Corddry, Thomas Lennon, Paul Scheer, Jordan Peele and Riki Lindhome are all on board, which is a murderer's row you can't argue with. Look for more info [...]
Has anyone ever had more fun than these people? Seriously. This is the most fun ever had. (Watch the behind the scenes after the jump.) All fun, from here on forth, should be measured in terms of this music video. "Hey bro, how was the party last night?" "Oh, pretty OK. Like 15% the 'Do It Anyway' video."
Steve Carell, Toni Colette, Maya Rudolph, Rob Corddry, Amanda Peet, Sam Rockwell are starring in a film written, directed, and co-starring Nat Faxon and Jim Rash. No, you are not dreaming – you're reading a blog post about a real movie. That movie, which starts shooting on Monday, is called The Way, Way Back and is about a teenager (played by The Killing's Liam James) who befriends a water park manager (Rockwell). This movie is going to be like a waterslide; there will be some ups and downs and you will be leaning back and not wearing a shirt and Maya Rudolph will be there and— OK, yeah, [...]
Hell Baby, a horror comedy written and directed by Reno 911! and The State's Tom Lennon and Ben Garant, is coming your way this fall. Millenium Entertainment just bought up rights to the film, which premiered at Sundance yesterday, and they're debuting it on all VOD platforms this fall followed by a token theatrical release. Hell Baby follows an expectant couple (Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb) who move into a haunted house in New Orleans, only to have to call out the Vatican's exorcist team to save them from their new home's demonic curse. A whole slew of lovely comedy people (Paul Scheer, Rob Huebel, Michael Ian [...]
Childrens Hospital's Rob Corddry has been cast as the lead in a new ABC comedy pilot called Spy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Corddry will play Tim, the not-so-smart father of a super intelligent son who inadvertently takes a job at the secret service to impress his kid. Spy is based on the British show of the same name, which was created by Simeon Goulden, and Goulden is writing the US adaptation as well. The UK version of Spy recently wrapped its second season, and you can check it out on Hulu here. Rob Corddry recently appeared in a ton of movies and TV guest star [...]
Adult Swim just announced it has picked up its 15-minute live-action comedies Childrens Hospital and NTSF:SD:SUV for an additional year each. The shows are both in the midst of their current seasons, airing Thursday nights at midnight, but the new seasons – Childrens Hospital's fifth and NTSF's third – will debut sometime in 2013. This is good news for everyone except for Children's Hospital Los Angeles, who will probably have to issue a statement saying that their actual hospital wasn't picked up for a fifth season and is still a real hospital and not a TV show.
- Chloe Sevigny is going stop byPortlandia to play Fred and Carrie's new roommate Alexandra. If you made a list of perfect Portlandia guest stars, Chlo-Sev had to be in the top seven, if not the top four.
- Little Britain's Matt Lucas (aka the bald fellow in Bridesmaids) will be coming to Community to play Toby, a nerdish fellow who Abed meets at an Inspector Spacetime convention. The fast friends become faster friends when they learn they had previously "met" online. Sounds like a nice enough character, which makes me believe he will ultimately turn into a villain. A British villain. I smell a [...]
