TV Land Picks Up ‘Impastor’ & ‘Teachers’

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Alison is executive producer for Teachers and it has recently been picked up by TV Land!

TV Land continues its transformation toward single-camera, edgier comedy with 10-episode series orders to both of its pilots: Impastor starring Michael Rosenbaum and Teachers, topined by improv group the Katydids on whose web series the series is based. Both are single-camera and will premiere in 2015. While TV Land, once known as home for classic sitcoms, kicked off its original efforts with multi-camera series, single-camera comedies now outnumber traditional sitcoms on the network’s original slate. The streak started with a series order to the single-camera Jennifer Falls in January, which has been followed by series pickups of only filmed comedies — Younger, the Jim Gaffigan show and now Impastor and Teachers. The network has only three multi-camera original comedies on the air: Hot In Cleveland, spinoff The Soul Man and The Exes.
“Impastor and Teachers are perfect examples of the type of comedies we’re looking for as TV Land evolves its original series – innovative, unconventional, and hilariously funny for an audience that enjoys smart humor with a hint of heart,” said TV Land President Larry W. Jones.

Impastor, from Christopher Vane stars Michael Rosenbaum, Sara Rue, Aimee Garcia, Mircea Monroe, Mike Kosinski, and David Rasche. It revolves around Buddy Dobbs (Rosenbaum), a gambling, pot-smoking slacker on the run from a loan shark who steals a man’s identity and ends up posing as the new gay pastor in a small, tightknit town. Although he’s tempted to immediately run off with the pastor’s money, Buddy has a change of heart when he realizes that the people there, including his prim church assistant Dora (Rue), actually like this new and semi-improved alter ego — and he kind of likes them back. Impastor is executive produced by Vane and Rosenbaum, along with Eric and Kim Tannenbaum. Rob Greenberg directed the pilot.

“Teachers” PhotoTeachers revolves around six elementary school teachers who are trying to mold the minds and lives of America’s youth, even though they don’t really seem to have their own lives together at all. From refusing to read fairytales because “sometimes Prince Charming wants to date other people” to hitting on the resident “hot dad,” these teachers certainly are changing the world, one student at a time. The series stars improv group the Katydids – Caitlin Barlow, Katy Colloton, Cate Freedman, Kate Lambert, Katie O’Brien and Katie Thomas – who also wrote and starred in the web hit that the TV series is based on. In addition to writing for and starring in “Teachers,” they will also serve as executive producers alongside Alison Brie and showrunners Ian Roberts and Jay Martel. Matt Miller and Cap Gun TV also serve as executive producers

The Black List’s Live Reading of ‘The Seekers of Perpetual Love’

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Alison will be participating in the live reading of The Seekers of Perpetual Love on Sept 20.

The Black List announced the full cast list for its next live reading series. Alison Brie and Nathan Fillion will star in a staged reading of “The Seekers of Perpetual Love.”

Brie has had supporting stints in both “Mad Men” and “Community.” Fillion is best known for his starring role in the ABC series “Castle.”

Justin Burtha, Melanie Lynskey, Jean Smart and Dean Cameron also will appear at the Sept. 20 event. Cooper Thornton is set to return as Black List Live’s narrator.

As TheWrap previously reported, “Seekers” is a comedy script about three siblings from a dysfunctional upper-class family who recruit a New Age “deprogrammer” and head out on the road to save their sister, who has been enlisted by a doomsday cult.

Screenwriter Victoria Strouse will direct the 2008 Black List script, formerly known as “The Apostles of Infinite Love.”

The performance will take place Sept. 20 at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre in Los Angeles. Tickets are now on sale.

The Black List Live! Series launched earlier this summer with a reading of “1969: A Space Odyssey,” a screenplay about Stanley Kubrick faking the moon landing. Jared Harris, Kathryn Hahn and Thomas Sadoski all appeared in that live production.

Alison Brie on her Fav Sitcom

Posted by Jasmine with No Comments

Back in the Nineties, BoJack Horseman had it all: success, stardom, the lead role on the sitcom Horsin’ Around (imagine Who’s the Boss or Charles in Charge, only starring a horse). After the show was cancelled, however, BoJack fell on hard times. Like many a narcissistic former TV icon, he’s been living off the fumes of his fame for a while. Now, however, he wants to get back in the small-screen saddle. If he can just get that second great role, maybe he can move out of the messy apartment he shares with that twentysomething stoner and get back on top.

A landmark in bingeworthy stallions-behaving-badly TV comedies, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman comes with an impressive pedigree: Arrested Development’s Will Arnett voices the equine antihero, with Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), Alison Brie (Community), Amy Sedaris (Strangers With Candy), Paul F. Tompkins (Mr. Show) and Patton Oswalt (The King of Queens) lending their voices to the animal and human characters who circle around BoJack in the show’s warped version of Hollywood purgatory. Given that it’s a satire of cheesy primetime comedies as much as showbiz types on the skids, we asked a few of the cast members and showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg wax poetic on their favorite sitcoms.

Alison Brie on ‘Saved by the Bell’

“The first thing that came to mind, and I’m going to stick by this, is Saved By the Bell. I know, I know! Look, I’m aware there have been a number of amazing TV shows that have come and gone in the last 20 years, but this was the first show that affected me as a kid. I owned the board game. I had a crush on Zach Morris. I wanted to dress like Lisa Turtle, I wanted to be Kelly Kapowski.”

“I have to say, during all of the Community table reads we’ve had over the years, I’d find myself constantly re-evaluating which SBTB character the Community characters would be. Annie had started out as a Jessie, but as she’s grown up, maybe she’s become more of a Kelly? Troy really started as the Slater of the group, the football player who Annie had a crush on…then he and Abed sort of formed into one big super-Screech. And of course Joel McHale is Zach. [Pause] I’ve thought about this way too much, actually.”
