Ben Stiller’s Red Hour, which has brought you Burning Love and will be part of bringing The Secret Life of Walter Mitty to theaters this holiday season, is partnering with Legendary TV & Digital to hopefully have the capacity to make more groundbreaking comedy.
Also, you might notice that Legendary, at this point, has aligned with themselves with both Red Hour Films and Nerdist Industries, which is a pretty smart move on their producing comedy through various formats in the years to come.
Eric Andre just got the news that The Eric Andre Show will have a 3rd season at Adult Swim.
To celebrate, he appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show, but, of course, made it feel more like his show. Watch what happened here.
Bryan Cook, Matt Braunger, Kurt Braunohler, Kyle Kinane, Jake Weisman, Ben Roy, Matt Knudsen, Howard Kremer, and more really funny people audition what could make for Asylum's next great SyFy movie, Space Cops for Denver’s renowned comedy group The Grawlix.
Watch it Space Cops auditions here and now.
Unlike trying to redo The 3 Stooges, BBC is making a bunch better move by just revisiting the lives of Laurel and Hardy.
We have a feeling that will go much better.

Many times on late night shows, guests will have a pre-interview to determine what they will talk about on that night’s episode and roughly estimate how the interview will go. Often, that results in guests being weird facsimiles of themselves.
However, Tig Notaro did no such thing on The Pete Holmes Show last night and she was her wonderfully, unflinchingly honest self in doing an impression that only her girlfriend is impressed by and being the world’s first “cool down” comedian.
As reported earlier this week, Enlightened’s Mike White is returning to HBO in developing another comedy project.
For this show, White is keying in on the lives of romance novel models, which has us pretty much sold on the show. Let’s hope that whole pilot order to series order goes quickly.
