Goodbye Lena Dunham! Why John Early is millennial comedy’s new king

From his hipster satire in Search Party to Britney Spears impressions, the Tennessee comic’s joyful characters mark a departure from self-absorbed twentysomething humour

In one of the final episodes of subversive murder mystery series Search Party, John Early’s fantastically vainglorious character Elliott has an epiphany. He sits at the desk of his book publisher and addresses a room of staff who are impatiently waiting for a first draft of his autobiography. “Here’s the truth. I don’t want to work. I don’t like working. Work sucks,” he declares after a long, meditative sigh. “Working feels bad and I don’t ever want to work one more day in my entire life. Oh my God, it feels so good to say that!” Combined with his ridiculously contrarian outfit – a gaudy striped smock, a cream Sherlock cap and a pair of patterned swimming trunks – Elliott exudes the much-examined

Someone watched Bee Movie 357 times on Netflix in 2017

Kirsten Howard Dec 11, 2017

Shout out to the UK subscriber who watched Bee Movie 357 times this year. Your dedication has been duly noted by Netflix...

Bee Movie, the 2007 animated meme generator, has a very committed UK fan. Someone so enamoured by the adventures of Barry B. Benson, that in 2017 they were willing to spend 32,487 minutes of their time rewatching the film on Netflix.

Netflix, for their part, did not want this devotion to go unsung, so this week they specifically acknowledged the bee-witched viewer and created a little buzz (I'm sorry) surrounding the, er, achievement, by including the factoid in their 2017 'Year In Review'.

The Jerry Seinfeld-starring flick could have been consumed once a day, or for almost 24 days continuously. No one knows, as the streaming giant are naturally keeping the person's identity anonymous, and further details under wraps.

Oh, and Netflix also released a bunch of Top 10 lists, but

How ‘Search Party’ Gets Darker, Funnier in Season 2 (Exclusive)
Shows about the misadventures of twentysomethings are a television staple, but the TBS breakout Search Party -- with its sly combination of suspenseful thrills and tons of character-driven laughs -- is in a class all its own.

Alia Shawkat, whose rising profile includes work on Arrested Development and Transparent, plays Dory, the face of this ragtag search party. Dory’s restlessness to do something meaningful with her life leads her to look for former schoolmate Chantal Witherbottom after happening on a missing person sign at the series outset. She winds up dragging her reluctant friends into the search: her soon-to-be ex-boyfriend Drew (Stranger ThingsJohn Reynolds), her aggressively vapid-seeming besties Portia (Meredith Hagner, of Younger and Strangers on Facebook Watch) and Elliott (John Early, of the Wet Hot American Summer Netflix series and High Maintenance), and her ex-boyfriend-turned-journalist Julian (Brandon Micheal Hall, who also stars on The Mayor).

Alyssa Milano Has Gigs in the Works with Netflix, The CW, and Lifetime

Milano in “Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later”: Netflix

Alyssa Milano is lighting it up. Deadline reports that the “Charmed” alumna has three new gigs in the works, all at different networks. She just closed deals that will see her developing, executive producing, and starring in “Alyssa Milano for Mayor,” a comedy series in development at Lifetime, she’s been promoted to series regular on Netflix’s upcoming dramedy “Insatiable” after impressing as a guest-star in the pilot, and she’s working on a new adaptation of her graphic novel “Hacktivist” with The CW.

Described as being in the vein of “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Alyssa Milano for Mayor” features the former “Who’s the Boss?” star playing a version herself who ends up in public office. She becomes the mayor of a suburban La town and “is forced to deal with the minutiae of community politics,” the source writes. A+E Studios is producing the Lifetime project in association with Milano’s Peace by Peace Productions.

Insatiable” is based on a true story and centers on a disgraced lawyer (Dallas Roberts, “American Crime,” “The Good Wife”) who becomes a beauty pageant coach and accepts an unconventional client — a teen (Debby Ryan, “Jessie,” “Sing It!”) described as “vengeful” and “bullied.” Milano plays the coach’s wife.

The CW developed an adaptation of “Hacktivist” last season, but the cyber thriller wasn’t greenlit. Now the network is trying another approach with a new writer, Grant Thompson (“McFarland, USA”). The story follows “twentysomething best friends and co-founders of the most important social networking company in the world, who are recruited to work secretly for the CIA to bring about global social change,” Deadline summarizes. The project hails from Boom! Studios and CBS TV Studios, and Milano is among its executive producers.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later” and “Mistresses” are among Milano’s recent acting credits.
