TBS’s Full Frontal with Samantha Bee Announces “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” Saturday, April 29, 2017

January 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

NEW YORK— TBS’s late-night hit Full Frontal with Samantha Bee is pleased to announce its first annual “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner,” which will take place on Saturday, April 29, at The Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. (the Old Post Office being regrettably unavailable due to a Bahraini Press Freedom Consortium). Samantha Bee, noted purveyor of FAKE NEWS™, will host the gala affair, welcoming journalists and non-irritating celebrities from around the world. We suspect some members of the press may find themselves unexpectedly free that night, and we want to feed them and give them hugs.

“Executives at TBS offered their full support of the gala by nodding politely and then muttering under their breath as we turned around,” said Bee. “The evening is sure to bring plenty of surprises, music, food, and laughter—and if you’re not careful you just might learn something. Specifically, you’ll learn how screwed we’d be without a free press.”

Though unrelated, Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner will happen at the exact same time as the official White House Correspondents’ Dinner. What an incredible coincidence.

All proceeds for “Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner” will go to the Committee to Protect Journalists (cpj.org), whether they like it or not. They certainly didn’t ask for the support of a woman whom Newsbusters once called “an unfunny, feminist battle ax.”

“We’re really doing this,” said Bee. “This is not a joke.”
About Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee has grown its audience of adults 18-49 by huge margins since premiering last February, with Q4 2016 Live + 7 figures showing a +35% lift over Q1 2016 and initial 2017 numbers showing an even more impressive +80% increase. Hailed by The New Yorker as “America’s new Comedian-in-Chief,” host Samantha Bee took late night by storm with her bare-knuckled coverage of the 2016 Presidential election. Now the Full Frontal team is leading late-night’s efforts to keep the new administration honest. Or make them honest. Or just laugh at their dishonesty.

In addition to covering Washington politics, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee shines a spotlight on stories beyond the beltway, from untested rape kits in Georgia to abortion laws in Texas to diaper bills in California, as well as national tragedies such as the mass shooting in Orlando. Full Frontal also travels around the world to cover international stories, with segments from Jordan, Germany, Russia, and (this week) Scotland.

Full Frontal with Samantha Bee airs Wednesdays at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The series is executive-produced by Samantha Bee, Jason Jones, Jo Miller, Miles Kahn and Tony Hernandez.

ABC Celebrates Valentine’s Day With Themed Specials and New Episodes

January 27, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

OVE IS IN THE AIR WHEN ABC CELEBRATES VALENTINE’S DAY

Love is all around when classic Charlie Brown specials, ABC’s comedies, “General Hospital” and “The Chew” celebrate the most romantic time of the year, Valentine’s Day. Below are highlights of specials and episodes scheduled for February.  All times are EST:

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 3
 “ Dr. Ken” “A Dr. Ken Valentine’s Day” – Ken lets Allison, who is second-guessing her decision to have a low-key Valentine’s Day, think that a love poem Dave wrote for his sweetheart, Emily (guest star Zooey Jeong, Ken Joeng’s real-life daughter), is meant for her. Meanwhile, Molly and Jae consider Valentine’s Day a corporate concoction; Clark plans a romantic scavenger hunt to lead Connor to his present; and complications arise when Damona and Eric have dinner at a restaurant that she and Pat once frequented when they were dating. (8:31-9:00 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8
“The Goldbergs” “Agassi” – Adam feels like he’s losing his best friend, Chad, so he attempts to join the tennis team. When Chad picks Dave Kim as his partner, Adam vows to take him down with Barry in a tennis match, channeling Andre Agassi. Meanwhile, with the help of Beverly, Erica deals with her post-break up depression just in time for Valentine’s Day. (8:00–8:30 p.m.)

“Speechless” “V-A-L—VALENTINE’S D-A–DAY” – Maya attempts to give Jimmy a Valentine’s Day gift, with the help of his old roommate and her ex-fiancé (guest star Ken Marino as Ethan). Ray is elated to find out he has a secret admirer, but will he learn the truth of who it is?  Meanwhile, JJ is in charge of distributing candy-grams, which proves challenging for both he and Kenneth. (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

“Modern Family” “Do You Believe in Magic?” – Fearful that the romance between him and Claire is fizzling, Phil calls upon his alter ego, Clive Bixby, to get Valentine’s Day back on track. Jay shows a bit of child favoritism when he and Gloria must deal with Joe’s inappropriate Valentine gift-giving and Manny’s dating indecisiveness. When Cam and Mitch empower Lily, Haley and Sal (Elizabeth Banks) to stand up for themselves to the men in their lives, things don’t turn out quite as planned and in fact go a little overboard. Alex discovers she has a secret admirer who may be a little too involved with the family. Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks guest star.  (9:00-9:31 p.m.)

“black-ish” “The Name Game” – Dre and Bow have a gender reveal party, and Dre is thrilled because it’s his turn to name the baby. He decides on a culturally significant name that Bow and Ruby aren’t a fan of. Meanwhile, Zoey’s plan to have an anti-Valentine’s Day with her friend Shelly is thwarted when Junior asks Shelly out on a date, so Diane tries to fill in as Zoey’s BFF. (9:31-10:00 p.m.)

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 10
“Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown,” the 1975 special produced and animated by the same team that gave us the now classic holiday specials and taken directly from the late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz’s famed comic strip, will air with the classic “A Charlie Brown Valentine.”  In “Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown,” hearts are fluttering on Valentine’s Day at Birchwood School, and Linus has brought a huge box of candy for his homeroom teacher. Thinking that the candy is for her, Sally reciprocates with a homemade card for Linus. Meanwhile, Lucy demands some affection from Schroeder, and Charlie Brown waits for his cards in the mail… and waits… and waits. In “A Charlie Brown Valentine,” Charlie Brown finally works up the courage to call the little red-haired girl to ask her to the Valentine’s Day dance. But once again he ends up broken-hearted and empty-handed when he dials the wrong number and reaches Peppermint Patty instead. (8:00-9:00 p.m.)

WEEK OF FEBRUARY 13
“General Hospital” – On “General Hospital,” love is in the air in Port Charles as Kiki and Dillon make another attempt at a romantic first date.  Meanwhile, Anna seizes an opportunity to put one over on Valentin, and the custody battle clouds Valentine’s Day plans for Lulu, Dante, Maxie and Nathan. (2:00-3:00 p.m.)

 TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14
“The Chew”“The Chew” has a Valentine to its viewers with sumptuous recipes for your sweetheart that won’t break the bank and will have your taste buds swooning. (1:00-2:00 p.m. EST/check local listings)

“American Housewife” “Time For Love” – Katie’s least favorite holiday is Valentine’s Day, but her desire for a low-key approach is overridden by Greg’s over-the-top romantic gestures.  Meanwhile Oliver has an expensive gift for the girl he’s crushing on, and Taylor tries to put one over on her parents in order to attend a Valentine’s Day party. (8:30-9:00 p.m.)

“Fresh Off the Boat” “Neighbors with Attitude” – Jessica is disappointed to learn that she is excluded from the Neighborhood Watch, because she has the reputation of not being a team player.  But when Ann’s son goes missing, Jessica proves that her independent security measures work better than everyone else’s.  Meanwhile, Eddie sets the stage for the perfect first kiss with Alison, on a special Valentine’s Day-themed episode. Courtney Thorne-Smith (“Melrose Place”) guest stars as Ann. (9:00–9:30 p.m.).

TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28
“The Real O’Neals”“The Real Heartbreak” – Devastated by his break-up with Brett, Kenny tags along with Pat and Jimmy to a Lonely Hearts happy hour, but when they try to use Kenny’s sadness to get attention from single ladies, Kenny inadvertently steals the show. Meanwhile, Eileen shuns the usual Valentine’s Day traditions until a chance encounter changes her mind (9:30–10:00 p.m.)

SHOWTIME ORDERS FOURTH SEASON OF ITS GOLDEN GLOBE-WINNING DRAMA THE AFFAIR PRIOR TO THE SEASON THREE FINALE ON JANUARY 29

HOWTIME® ORDERS FOURTH SEASON OF ITS GOLDEN GLOBE®-WINNING DRAMA

THE AFFAIR PRIOR TO THE SEASON THREE FINALE ON JANUARY 29

 

LOS ANGELES – January 9, 2017 –  SHOWTIME has picked up a fourth season of the Golden Globe-winning hit drama THE AFFAIR, in advance of the series’ season three finale airing on Sunday, January 29 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. THE AFFAIR stars Golden Globe nominee Dominic West, Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson, Emmy Award® nominee Maura Tierney and Screen Actors Guild® nominee Joshua Jackson. The announcement was made today by David Nevins, President and CEO, Showtime Networks Inc. at the 2017 Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour.

THE AFFAIR explores the emotional and psychological effects of an affair that destroyed two marriages, and the crime that brings these individuals back together, as told through multiple perspectives. Season three picked up three years after Noah’s (West) shocking admission of guilt at the murder trial of Scott Lockhart. Noah attempts to restart his life, but the damage wrought by his past decisions has made him a ghost of his former self.  Alison (Wilson) has been raising daughter Joanie alongside Cole (Jackson) and Luisa (Catalina Sandino Moreno) in Montauk, but Alison’s past continues to rear its ugly head as Cole and Luisa attempt to build their own future. For Helen (Tierney), life appears to continue on, but just below the surface of a successful business and a bustling home lies uncertainty with her boyfriend Vik (Omar Metwally), instability amongst her children, and an unshakeable feeling of guilt. In season three, BAFTA winner Irene Jacob joined the cast providing the series’ fifth perspective, playing Juliette Le Gall, a new love interest of Noah’s, running from her own secrets, who helps him process a trauma from his past and understand himself a little better. Season three guest stars include Jennifer Esposito and Brendan Fraser.

Award-winning playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem (House of Cards, In Treatment) and Hagai Levi (In Treatment) created the series. Treem serves as executive producer, along with Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights).

January 27, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The Series Will Feature Inspirational “Everyday Heroes” Overcoming Obstacles on the Tough Mudder Course and in Life

 

NEW YORK, NY/BURBANK, CA (January 19, 2017) – The CW Network and Tough Mudder Inc., the leading active lifestyle brand, will debut a new multi-platform six-part series, TOUGH MUDDER: THE CHALLENGE WITHIN, Thursday, February 2 on CW Seed, The CW’s digital network. The finale will premiere as a one-hour broadcast special event on The CW, Tuesday, February 14 (8:00-9:00pm ET/PT).

 

The first two episodes of TOUGH MUDDER: THE CHALLENGE WITHIN will stream on CW Seed beginning Feb 2, with the subsequent three digital episodes to debut Feb. 6, Feb. 9, and Feb. 13. The episodes will focus on “everyday heroes” – the Granito brothers, Denise Florio, and Mirna Valerio – who must overcome their daily struggles and hardships to accomplish something they never thought possible: completing the 10-12 mile Tough Mudder obstacle course.

 

The one-hour broadcast finale of TOUGH MUDDER: THE CHALLENGE WITHIN on The CW Network will chronicle the group’s journey as they come together to accomplish completing a Tough Mudder. Deemed as “probably the toughest event on the planet,” Tough Mudder tests teamwork skills and pushes one’s physical abilities and mental grit.

 

Shot in a documentary style, the show will feature the rawness of real human experience and the high-stakes, unscripted drama of each team members’ own personal stories as they face different obstacles and fears not only on the course, but also in life.

 

“Each year we hear hundreds of thousands of participants who describe how the challenges of running a Tough Mudder inspire and help them overcome personal obstacles,” said Will Dean, CEO & Co-founder, Tough Mudder, Inc. “Tough Mudder is thrilled to partner with The CW Network to highlight inspirational stories and further expand our video content distribution bringing Tough Mudder to millions of people.”

 

Featured Participants on TOUGH MUDDER: THE CHALLENGE WITHIN:

 

MIRNA VALERIO – is a Spanish teacher, choral director, diversity practitioner and cross-country running coach in Rabun Gap, Ga., who also writes her own blog, “Fat Girl Running.” After a heart attack scare eight years ago, Mirna went on a quest to improve her cardiovascular health.

 

THE GRANITO BROTHERS – Bobby, Jim and their stepbrother, Brandt, are part of a tight-knit Italian-American family from Staten Island, N.Y. Bobby was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis just weeks before his 50th birthday. Determined not to feel sorry for himself, he declared it “an inconvenience” and is on a mission to keep his condition from progressing.

 

DENISE FLORIO – is an Army medic who suffered a traumatic brain injury in a tank accident and experienced severe PTSD upon her return home. A single mom to daughter Victoria, Denise has participated in multiple Tough Mudder events and has attributed the obstacle course challenge to being a huge part of her healing process. Denise resides in Manchester, N.H.

 

SEAN CORVELLE – Tough Mudder’s kinetic event warm-up motivator serves in a similar role to the team of four. Corvelle is one of Tough Mudder’s most prominent faces. He gets his stage presence from his years of doing stand-up comedy and acting in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Sean currently resides in Sacramento, Calif.

 

Flatbush Pictures and Judd Ehrlich, the award-winning documentary team behind We Could Be King, the 2014 Sports Emmy Award-winner for Outstanding Sports Documentary, and recipient of a Grand Clio, is the executive producer of the series, along with Jesse Bull of Tough Mudder. Ehrlich and his team also produced the Tough Mudder web series Finish Strong.

TBS’s CONAN Heads to Mexico City for Latest CONAN Without Borders Primetime Special To Air Wednesday, March 1

January 27, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

TBS’s CONAN will go international for the sixth time in two years as host Conan O’Brien travels to Mexico City for the brand new primetime special CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico. The hour-long special is set to premiere Wednesday, March 1, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), exclusively on TBS.

With all of the negative news about the current state of the U.S.-Mexico relationship, O’Brien has decided to strike a positive note by heading to Mexico City, where he’ll outsource his show by shooting his latest CONAN Without Borders special with the help of an all-Mexican staff, crew, guests and studio audience.

“Although I’m eager to make a show in Mexico, if the U.S. government meets my demand for $100 million in tax incentives, I will consider relocating production to Akron.” said O’Brien.

CONAN Without Borders: Made in Mexico marks O’Brien’s sixth international adventure in the past two years. Most recently he traveled to Berlin, where he experienced everything from a dominatrix to the refugee camp at Berlin Tempelhof Airport. He has made headlines as the first American late-night host to shoot in Cuba in more than 50 years. He also became the first American late-night personality ever to host a show from Armenia, as well as South Korea. Early last year, O’Brien joined former First Lady Michelle Obama at the international Air Force Base in Doha, Qatar, to perform for the troops stationed overseas. Last year also included a week of shows from San Diego during Comic-Con® International and an additional week of shows from the legendary Apollo Theater in New York. In previous years, O’Brien has also done special shows from New York, Chicago, Dallas and Atlanta.

CONAN airs MondayThursday at 11 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS. The show is produced by Conaco LLC, with Jeff Ross serving as executive producer.

Walt Disney Animation Studios “MOANA” on Digital HD Feb. 21 and Blu-ray March 7

January 13, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Epic Comedy-Adventure Sails Home on Digital HD Feb. 21 and Blu-ray™ March 7

Continue the journey with hours of fun-filled extras showcasing an all-new mini-movie, the charismatic cast, famed filmmakers, dynamic musical team, the beautiful people and cultures of the Pacific Islands, a deleted song, deleted scenes, and more!

BURBANK, Calif., Jan. 13, 2017 — Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Moana,” the sweeping story of a spirited teenager who sets sail on a daring adventure to save her people, starring newcomer Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of brave and tenacious Moana and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (HBO’s “Ballers,” “Central Intelligence”) as the larger-than-life demigod Maui, has dazzled both critics and audiences. The film earned a 95% critics’ consensus on Rotten Tomatoes and the No. 1 spot at the domestic box office opening weekend. Now, “Moana” sets a new course, arriving to homes on Digital HD/3D and Disney Movies Anywhere (DMA) on Feb. 21, and on Blu-ray 3D™, Blu-ray, DVD and On-Demand on March 7.

Continuing the fun-filled adventure, families can continue their journey filled with hours of extensive and entertaining bonus offerings including: a new, hilarious mini-movie featuring Moana and Maui; an in-depth look at how the people, cultures and heritage of the Pacific Islands shaped the story of “Moana;” revealing Q&A with co-stars Auli‘i Cravalho and Dwayne Johnson, and famed animation directors Ron Clements and John Musker; insider access to Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foaʻi, the trio behind the film’s moving music; four mini-documentaries highlighting the movie’s groundbreaking effects; deleted scenes; a deleted song; hidden Easter Eggs; music video; “Inner Workings,” the theatrical short film directed by Leo Matsuda that spotlights the internal struggle between a man’s Brain and Heart; and much, much more.

“Moana” stars Auli‘i Cravalho as the voice of Moana, Dwayne Johnson as the voice of Maui, Temuera Morrison (“Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones,” “Once Were Warriors,” “Six Days, Seven Nights”) as Moana’s no-nonsense father, Chief Tui; Rachel House (“Whale Rider,” “Hunt for Wilderpeople,” “Eagle vs Shark,” “Boy,” “White Lies”) as Moana’s trusted Gramma Tala; and Nicole Scherzinger (Grammy®-nominated singer, West End’s “Cats”) as Moana’s playful and strong-willed mother, Sina; Jemaine Clement (“The BFG,” “Despicable Me,” “Rio,” “Rio 2,” “What We Do in the Shadows,” Flight of the Conchords) voices Tamatoa, a self-absorbed, 50-foot crab; and Alan Tudyk (“Zootopia,” “Wreck-It Ralph,” “Big Hero 6”) lends his voice to stowaway rooster Heihei.

According to directors Ron Clements and John Musker, the story of “Moana” was inspired by the great explorers who masterfully navigated the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. “Voyaging is a real source of pride for many Pacific Islanders, a part of their identity,” says Clements. Many experts believe that about 3,000 years ago, those deep-sea exploratory voyages halted for about a millennium before resuming. This rebirth of exploration sparked the filmmakers’ imaginations, and the heroine at the heart of the story. “The idea of a teenage girl who dreamed of becoming a navigator—considering the abilities of her ancestors—was so appealing,” explains Musker. Moana’s quest to become a wayfinder also serves as a journey of self-discovery, empowering her to find her own identity – a beautiful and powerful message for audiences of all ages and genders.

Bonus features include*:
