Comedy favorite Brett Gelman is starring in a movie he cowrote with writer/his wife Janicza Bravo. The movie is called Lemon and co-stars equally comedic favorites Judy Greer and Michael Cera. Variety says Gelman will star as a jobless actor trying to get his life together after being dumped by his blind girlfriend (Greer). The rest of the cast is stacked with Nia Long, Fred Melamed, Shiri Appleby, Rhea Perlman, David Paymer, Gillian Jacobs, Megan Mullally, Martin Starr, Jeff Garlin, and Marla Gibbs.
Adult Swim is already jumping the gun on its own upfronts (which were supposed to be announced next week). THR reports the network released information on its latest projects. Prepare yourself for data overload.
One new quarter-hour show, TV Sucks, was picked up to series from creator Brad Neely (China, IL) that will be a sketch show featuring the likes of songs and bits. Seth Green is also making another one of those DC Comic/Robot Chicken Specials, Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Friendship Is Magic. Along with Green's special, Tim and Eric will return with two new Tim & Eric Bedtime Stories chapters and Brett Gelman will make third Dinner special. Phew. Adult Swim must feel very exclusive right now.
On the new show front, Adam Scott and Jon Daly are making an untitled golf show in which the two play professional golfers. And Parks and Rec's own Councilman Jam, Jon Glaser, is making Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, a show that will most likely turn out the exact way it sounds.
Man. The late night network sure is packed with shows and specials. Here's a list of the pilots ordered too. Just in case you didn't want to wait to see what failed and what didn't.
