Inside the Last-Minute Scramble to Save Community

"Six seasons and a movie" almost didn't happen. As June drew to a close, time was running out to save Community, which NBC had canceled in May. Talks to move the comedy to streaming service Hulu were falling apart, the deal options to keep the show's cast intact expired at the end of the month, and much of the crew and key writers had already moved on to new jobs. Even the comedy's offices on the studio lot had been taken over by a new series: Grace and Frankie, Netflix's upcoming sitcom starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

"When a show is canceled, it's usually canceled," says Sony Pictures Television programming president Zack Van Amburg, whose company produces Community. read more

First Look: SundanceTV's The Writers Room Tackles Netflix's House of Cards

Actress Molly Parker admits she doesn't know why she was invited to appear on this week's episode of SundanceTV's The Writers' Room. "But I'm happy to be here," she says, eager to celebrate the creative minds behind Netflix's House of Cards.

Parker, who joined the second season of House of Cards as Congresswoman Jackie Sharp, says she was drawn to the show because of executive producer Beau Willimon, who adapted the series for U.S. audiences. "Clearly not all television is created equal," Parker says. "To have the opportunity to work on a show that the writer-creator has such a strong vision and is just so talented, it's an honor."

On April 25's special comic book-themed episode, Kirkman recounts some of the obstacles he faced in getting the TV adaptation of... read more
