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

Sandra Bullock to Hold Special Screening for Boston FBI, Police

Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy will hold a special screening of their new comedy The Heat, which was filmed in Boston with law-enforcement support, for FBI agents and police, CNN reports.


The screening idea is in its early stages, and no date has been set, director Paul Feig said. It comes after this week’s bombing at the Boston Marathon, which killed three and injured more than 170 people. “The agents and police who are now busy with the bombing investigation gave the filmmakers so much help," Feig told CNN. "They are some of the finest people I've ever worked with," he said. "Boston is in good hands if they have to go through something like this. They are in the best hands possible." Added Bullock: "It's been an [amazingly] tight-knit community before this happened, and it just bonded a community even more. I don't think a screening would ever be enough, feel like it's enough to do for them."
