‘Silicon Valley’ Star Zach Woods Reflects on the Final Season: ‘Characters’ Blind Spots are Funny’

Though he co-starred in “Avenue 5” in the spring, Zach Woods had already been an HBO mainstay on “Silicon Valley.” There, Woods played Donald “Jared“ Dunn, the uneasy Pied Piper COO with an intense attachment to the company’s founder Richard (Thomas Middleditch) and a horrifying — albeit comically vague — history. In the fourth episode […]

Did 'The SImpsons' Accurately Portray STEM Education and the Gig Economy?

Long-time Slashdot reader theodp writes: On Sunday, The Simpsons aired The Miseducation Of Lisa Simpson, an episode in which Marge — with the help of a song from John Legend ("STEM, it's not just for dorks, dweebs and nerds / It'll turn all your dumb kids to Zuckerbergs") — convinces Springfield to use a windfall the town reaped by seizing shipwreck treasure to build the Springfield STEM Academy to "prepare kids for the jobs of tomorrow." All goes well initially — both Lisa and Bart love their...

‘Downhill’ Trailer: Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus Are in Crisis in the American Remake of ‘Force Majeure’

When it was announced that there would be an American remake of Ruben Östlund’s excruciatingly good Swedish comedy-drama Force Majeure…well, it was all downhill from there. Fittingly, that remake, starring Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as a couple in crisis, is titled Downhill. But with a comedy all-star team in front of the screen and an Oscar-winning duo behind the camera, could Downhill actually reach the heights of its Swedish predecessor? Watch the Downhill trailer to find out. ...

‘Avenue 5’ Trailer: Josh Gad Invites You on a “Luxury” Space Experience

Josh Gad is not the best billionaire salesman, but he does his awkward, creepy best in the latest Avenue 5 trailer, which plays like a very bad advertisement for Gad’s luxury space cruise. In the new space comedy from Veep creator Armando Ianucci, Gad plays Judd Galaxy’s founder, Herman Judd, who uses stock footage and shots of Hugh Laurie to bring us a vision of the future of space travel. Watch the new Avenue 5 trailer below. Avenue 5 Trailer An Ianucci series isn’t complete without y...

‘Avenue 5’ Teaser: The Creator of ‘Veep’ Takes Us on a Luxurious Space Cruise with Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad

Veep creator and In the Loop director Armando Ianucci got bored with political satire a little while back, mostly because the real politics of today are far too ludicrous and depressing to effectively make comedy out of them. But that’s not stopping the masterful comedy writer and director from starting a new series. Avenue 5 has Armando Ianucci taking us to space aboard the luxurious space cruise ship of the same name. Hugh Laurie is the captain who seems to love his job, that is until the shi...

‘Avenue 5’, a Sci-Fi Show From ‘Veep’ Creator Starring Hugh Laurie and Zach Woods, Gets Series Order at HBO

Armando Iannucci, the director of movies like The Death of Stalin and In the Loop and the creator of TV comedies The Thick of It and Veep, is returning to HBO with a new TV show. Iannucci stepped away from being Veep‘s showrunner after season 4 and hasn’t worked in television since, but that’s about to change with Avenue 5, a HBO science fiction series that will star Hugh Laurie (House, Tomorrowland), Zach Woods (Silicon Valley, The Office), and Josh Gad (Frozen, Pixels).

‘Silicon Valley’ Season 6 Production Delayed, Unclear If It’s the Final Season

HBO’s tech comedy series Silicon Valley was already renewed for a sixth season back in April this year. However, the show was renewed alongside the freshman comedy series Barry, and both shows are executive produced by Alec Berg. That seems to have created a bit of a scheduling challenge, because now production on the Silicon Valley season 6 is being delayed until summer 2019 in order to allow Berg to finish up his work on the second season of Barry first. But there might be more to this story ...

The LEGO Ninjago Movie takes a cue from the LEGO building brick set of the same name, which has already spawned an animated series. But this feature adaptation has no narrative ties to the animated series, which means audiences o...
