A 'CHiPs' movie will also weigh down on your already overburdened nostalgia

Old movies turning into shows (Lethal Weapon), shows turning into movies (Baywatch), not exactly old but still old shows (Charmed and Gilmore Girls) is a practice that does not seem to be slowing down any time soon. Last night's Jimmy Kimmel Live introduced yet another show-turned-movie in the form of CHiPs starring Dax Shepard and Michael Pena. If the trailer is any indication, the movie is full of penis jokes, small explosions and buddy cop shtick. Let's not forget the mild destruction of Los Angeles and the probable overuse of "California Love."

The cast is somewhat well packed with Kristen bell (appropriately playing Shepard's wife), Maya Rudolph, Ben Falcone, Adam Brody, Wilmer Valderrama, Ryan Hansen, and Vincent D'Onofrio playing the villain. Shepard actually takes the duty of writing, directing and producing making this his baby; much like 21 Jump Street and Jonah Hill. Still though. at this pace, every show from the 70's, 80's, 90's and early 2000's will probably be brought back in some form. I personally cannot wait to see who they get to play Arnold Jackson for the Diff'rent Strokes movie. CHiPs is set to release on March 24.

Comedy Central is making press junkets funny again

If you listen to podcasts that feature long form interviews with celebrities, then you know that they hate press junkets. Spending fifteen minutes with some JoBlo website is not optimal and those short segments can build up to long seven hour days. It’s maddening. Comedy Central is taking on that premise with their new digital series Junketeers. The story follows Brian Unger, Barak Hardley, Austin Lyon, Phil Augustus Jackson and Amanda Lund as self obsessed Hollywood reporters trying to snag certain quotes from stars. The show will also have its fill of cameo appearances by stars like Gillian Jacobs, Chloe Grace Moretz, Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell and more.

The series was created by MTV News correspondent Josh Horowitz, who’s presumably seen his share of junkets, and E! And Extra correspondent Ben Lyons, also in the same weathered junket boat. Junketeers is supposed to release today on all of Comedy Central’s platforms from its website to YouTube. Curiously, the show will also debut on Snapchat, Facebook, and and Twitter as a part of the channel’s social media push (as seen with The Daily Show at the national conventions).

Ted Danson returning to comedy in new NBC show from Mike Schur, Kristen Bell comes too

In a move seen by no one who really cares, Ted Danson joined Mike Schur's new NBC comedy. And he'll also be joined by House of Pie -- sorry, Lies' -- Kristen Bell. Good Place, the show, was ordered straight to series with 13 episodes according to Deadline. Bell is said to be staying on with Showtime's dramedy House of Lies while Danson will definitely not be returning to CSI: Cyber. The summer series "centers on Eleanor (Bell), a woman from New Jersey who comes to realize that she hasn’t been a very good person. She decides to turn over a new leaf by learning what it actually means to be “good” or “bad,” and then trying to make up for her past behavior. Danson plays Michael, who, through an unlikely set of circumstances, comes to be Eleanor’s guide through her self-designed self-improvement course."
