    Louie Anderson to Star as Talking Cat in Comedy in the Works at Fox (Exclusive)
    Louie Anderson may have found the purr-fect role.

    Variety has learned exclusively that Anderson is set to star in and executive produce the multi-camera comedy “Tigsley” at Fox. The project has received a script commitment with a penalty attached. “Tigsley” is described as an adult comedy about a family dealing with life, love, the pursuit of happiness, and their obnoxious insult-hurling talking cat (Anderson). According to an individual with knowledge of the situation, Anderson will appear onscreen in a cat costume rather than lending his voice to a CGI or puppet character.

    Anderson and Mike Sikowitz developed the story for the series together, with Sikowitz serving as writer and executive producer. Anderson’s frequent collaborator Abraham Geisness will also executive produce. Sony Pictures Television and Fox Entertainment will produce, with Sikowitz currently under an overall deal at Sony.

    In addition to his work as a stand up comedian, Anderson recently

    Fuller House Season 5 Trailer: Babies, Wedding Bells… But No Aunt Becky?

    That San Francisco townhouse is getting awfully crowded in Fuller House‘s final season… minus one notable absence.

    Netflix has released a trailer for the first half of Season 5 — debuting Friday, Dec. 6 on the streamer — and there are lots of big life milestones in the air: Stephanie and Jimmy bring their new (and still unnamed) baby home from the hospital, while D.J. and Steve consider walking down the aisle. “There’s gonna be a lot of people in this house,” Ramona — who gets a new love interest this season, too — notes. “You know, legally, if three more people move in,

    ‘The Feed’ Review: Amazon’s Answer to ‘Black Mirror’ Has a Solid, Eerie Vision of the Future

    Futuristic stories tend to upend the usual ways we judge an effective story. Every detail of some fictional, far-off future is a storytelling choice in itself. The elements of the recognizable world that get left behind are just as much a part of building out a future world as what’s included or how people interact.

    In the new Amazon series “The Feed,” there’s less of an initial attempt to come up with bizarre fashion choices or crazy-tech vehicles. The biggest change is the overall shift to fewer things and greater empty space. Office areas are sparse. Living rooms are bare. Even the streets seem less crowded. That’s due in major part to The Feed, a near-universal technology that works much in the way Google Glass was supposed to. Via a device implanted in each “enabled” user, people can send messages, watch video, even project augmented reality-like changes

    Live+3 Ratings for Week of Nov. 11: ‘This Is Us’ Tops ‘Masked Singer’
    First the first time in a while, “This Is Us” managed to top “The Masked Singer” in the Live+3 TV ratings.

    The NBC drama was the biggest grower of the week, jumping 80% from a 1.4 to a 2.5 after three days of delayed viewing, benefiting from a series low performance from the Fox singing competition show. “The Masked Singer” grew from a 1.6 rating to a 2.4.

    Grey’s Anatomy” and “9-1-1” tied for third among scripted shows, both growing 62% from a 1.3 in Live+Same Day to a 2.1 in L+3.

    ‘The Mandalorian’ Review: Predictable but Intense Episode 3 Sets Up Exciting Midseason Arc

    ‘The Mandalorian’ Review: Predictable but Intense Episode 3 Sets Up Exciting Midseason Arc
    [Editor’s note: The following review of “The Mandalorian” contains spoilers for the third episode, “Chapter 3: The Sin.”]

    “The Baby Yoda Show feat. Pedro Pascal as the Mandalorian” hits its stride in the Disney+ series’ third episode and sets itself up for an exciting midseason arc. Though the marquee Disney+ launch title still hasn’t managed to shake that nagging feeling of predictability, it’s an issue largely offset by the series’ genuinely fun moment-to-moment action and oodles of fan service.

    As expected, “Chapter 3: The Sin” focuses on the Mandalorian delivering his Force-sensitive quarry to Werner Herzog’s mysterious Imperial-connected character. But since abandoning Baby Yoda to Herzog would be a jerk move, the Mandalorian, armed with some impressive new gadgets and armor, sets off to rescue the series’ true breakout star.

    That’s the gist of things, and it plays out more or less how one would expect. That the early story beats on

    Carol Burnett Broke Down Comedy Barriers for Women That TV Is Determined to Rebuild

    Carol Burnett Broke Down Comedy Barriers for Women That TV Is Determined to Rebuild
    While accepting her Paley Honors Award in recognition of her groundbreaking achievements in television comedy, Carol Burnett took time to look back and share an anecdote with the audience about how she made it to this point in her storied career.

    “It was television that gave me my opportunities, but as a woman in this business, it wasn’t always easy to do what the naysayers said couldn’t be done,” Burnett said. “When I exercised a clause in a contract that I had with CBS way back in 1967 that would allow me to do an hour comedy variety show, I was told by the network executives that comedy variety was a man’s game: Sid Caesar, Jackie Gleason, Milton Berle, Dean Martin. They said, and I quote, ‘It’s not for you gals.'”

    Thanks to her contract, CBS had no choice but to put Burnett’s show on

    ‘The Mandalorian’: Carl Weathers on the ‘Many Possibilities’ of Baby Yoda and the ‘Blaze of Glory’ in Episode 3

    ‘The Mandalorian’: Carl Weathers on the ‘Many Possibilities’ of Baby Yoda and the ‘Blaze of Glory’ in Episode 3
    (Spoiler Alert: Do not read on if you have not watched the first three episodes of Disney Plus’ “Star Wars” spinoff series “The Mandalorian.”)

    Everything kicked off in episode 3 of “The Mandalorian.”

    “The Sin” ended in a massive shootout between the Mandalorian and the bounty hunter guild, led by the gruff Greef Carga. Pedro Pascal’s character only managed to escape thanks to a band of his jet-pack-fueled Mandalorian friends, who came along in the nick of time to blast a path for him to escape with Baby Yoda.

    The final sequence was undoubtedly the biggest, most exciting in the “The Mandalorian” series so far.

    ‘The Accident’ Review: Hulu’s British Drama Is an Unforgiving, Relentless Look at Family Tragedy

    ‘The Accident’ Review: Hulu’s British Drama Is an Unforgiving, Relentless Look at Family Tragedy
    It’s not that anyone is especially happy in the opening chapter of “The Accident,” but as the new four-part series progresses into a morass of dehumanizing corporate nightmares and horrific tales of physical and emotional trauma, it’s enough to make you appreciate the brighter prologue of this tale set in the fictional coastal Welsh town of Glyngolau.

    As with many aspects of creator Jack Thorne’s latest gutting TV drama, premiering Friday on Hulu after airing on Channel 4 last month, longing for any sort of relief and finding precious little is largely the point. To tell a community-wide story of tragedy and malfeasance, Thorne and director Sandra Goldbacher offer a relentless portrait of crisis that’s oppressive by design. That emotional vice grip is extremely affecting at times, but the more the show relies on recreating a feeling of emptiness, the more it gets what it’s going for.

    How Spencer Averick Built Suspense Through Editing Ava DuVernay’s ‘When They See Us’
    For most of the “When They See Us” shoot, director Ava DuVernay worked with two or three cameras, but when it came to shooting the tense courtroom seen where Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise are put on trial, DuVernay shot with four cameras. Editor Spencer Averick says, “We needed reactions from the parents, the legal team, the kids and the judge because there’s a lot going on.”

    Episode two in the four-part series picks up as the boys get ready for trial and the judge has ruled the admission tapes as admissible evidence.
