Our Cartoon President Returns for 2nd Season; Netflix Film from Fresh off the Boat Producer Coming in 2019

Our Cartoon President

The Showtime animated comedy series Our Cartoon President will return with seven new episodes starting on Sunday, July 15 at 10:30 p.m ET/PT. Executive produced by multiple Emmy(R) winner Stephen Colbert, showrunner R.J. Fried and Late Show executive producer Chris Licht, Our Cartoon President follows the tru-ish misadventures of the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, and his merry band of advisors and family members. The first season has already introduced audiences to Trump's attempts at "winning" the State of the Union address, comforting disaster victims and rolling back President Obama's accomplishments, as well as his co-dependent relationship with the media. The series averaged over two million weekly viewers in its first 10-episode run.


Netflix

A new Netflix comedy movie from director Nahnatchka Khan, who produces Fresh off the Boat and also produced Apartment 23, is coming in 2019. Netflix's Always Be My Maybe started filming this week in Vancouver, Canada. Ali Wong (Baby Cobra, American Housewife), Randall Park (Fresh off the Boat), Keanu Reeves (The Matrix), Michelle Buteau (Broad City), Vivian Bang, Karan Soni (Deadpool 2, Miracle Workers), Charlyne Yi (Paper Heart, Second Act), Daniel Dae Kim (Hellboy, Hawaii Five-0, Lost), James Saito, Lyrics Born, and Susan Park (Vice Principals, Fargo, Snowpiercer) star. Ashley Liao and Miya Cech will play Sasha at a younger age; Jackson Geach and Emerson Yin will play Marcus at a younger age; Anaiyah Juliette Bernier and Sasha Zoey Rojen will play Veronica at a younger age.

In the film, childhood sweethearts have a falling out and don't speak for 15 years. They reconnect as adults when Sasha, now a celebrity chef opening a restaurant in San Francisco, runs into Marcus, a happily struggling musician still living at home working for his dad. The old sparks are still there but can they adapt to each other's world? Netflix will release the film in 2019. Ali Wong's breakout Netflix stand-up special, Baby Cobra, launched on the service in 2016 and her most recent special Hard Knock Wife debuted this past Mother's Day, both to wide acclaim from critics and fans. Wong will voice the lead character of 'Bertie' and serve as executive producer of the series, for the upcoming Netflix animated comedy series Tuca & Bertie.

Roseanne

If you haven't heard the big news from yesterday, here it is. Statement by Channing Dungey, president, ABC Entertainment - Issued on May 29, 2018: "Roseanne's Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show." This means ABC has canceled a second season of the Roseanne revival after the horrible tweets (which we will not get into) from Roseanne Barr on Tuesday. The first season had already concluded on May 22. Reruns of The Middle will replace Roseanne reruns this summer, as of yesterday (May 29). No word yet what ABC will do come September when the second season was scheduled to launch. But that's not all -- reruns of the classic Roseanne have also been pulled on all outlets it currently airs on. It's no longer available on Hulu as well. The cable networks of Viacom - TV Land, CMT, and Paramount Network have all pulled the series as of today. And digital broadcast network Laff has also pulled it yesterday, replacing it with more reruns of Night Court. More to come on this, as we await what ABC will do Tuesdays at 8pm this September.

Another Sitcom Star Joins Kim Possible Live-Action; BYUtv Gets Original Sitcom

Alyson Hanningan - Kim Possible

Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother) and Connie Ray (The Big C) join the cast of Kim Possible, the live-action Disney Channel Original Movie based on the global hit animated series about an everyday high school girl who, in her spare time, saves the world from villains. Hannigan will play the role of brain surgeon Dr. Ann Possible (aka Mom Possible) and Ray will play grandmother Nana Possible. Also joining the cast are Todd Stashwick (12 Monkeys) and Taylor Ortega who will play fan-favorite villains Drakken and Shego, respectively; Ciara Wilson (OMG!) has been cast as new high school student Athena; and Erika Tham (Make It Pop) will play Kim's childhood frenemy, Bonnie. They join the previously announced leads, Sadie Stanley as Kim Possible and Sean Giambrone (The Goldbergs) as Ron Stoppable, in the comedy-adventure set to debut in 2019.


Dwight in Shining Armor

BYUtv, a family entertainment network, today announced the start of production for its original scripted adventure comedy series, Dwight in Shining Armor, slated to premiere in 2019. Sloane Morgan Siegel (Amazon Studio's Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street), Caitlin Carmichael (Young Sheldon) and Joel McCrary (The Princess Diaries 1 & 2) star in this new series created by LeeAnne H. Adams & Brian J. Adams (Amazon Studio's 12 Princesses) that is currently being filmed in Salt Lake City. Season one of the 30 minute adventure comedy series takes place in a suburban town where Dwight, a 21st century teen, falls into an ancient, underground chamber and lands lip-to-lip with Gretta, a gothic princess who has been magically sleeping for a thousand years. Dwight's "kiss" awakens Gretta, her court magician, Baldric, as well as scores of medieval villains, and makes Dwight her de facto champion until her hordes of enemies are defeated.

In this story of two worlds colliding, Gretta and Baldric come from a rough and tough gothic war zone. They have no way of understanding 21st century manners or political climate. And they're not really interested in adapting - they've got bigger concerns because all the problems from their world have followed them here. Dwight, on the other hand, fits perfectly in the 21st century. He's the model Generation Z kid: sensitive, open-minded, health-conscious, responsible, non-confrontational - all the qualities that Gretta's world associates with sniveling weakness. He seems like the least-equipped person to fight off Gretta's hordes of enemies, and he's not really interested in becoming a rough and tough champion. If he has to do this job, he's going to do it his way.

    Young & Hungry

    Young & Hungry will kick off its final season with back-to-back episodes of the fan-favorite comedy on Wednesday, June 20, beginning at 8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT on Freeform. The final season sees Gabi and Josh happily together and in love, but now navigating their new status as a full-fledged couple. Meanwhile, the rest of Josh's staff, Yolanda and Elliot, are grappling with the change in work dynamic with Gabi as the "woman of the house."

Trying to make things less awkward, Gabi asks Josh to spend more time at her apartment, but Josh is horrified when he learns how messy Gabi is. In the second episode, "Young & Third Wheel," Josh decides to set Sofia up with someone, in hopes she'll be less of a third wheel in his and Gabi's relationship. But when Sofia hits it off with Josh's dentist, Gabi isn't so sure he's the right one for her friend. Meanwhile, Elliot turns to Yolanda for help in reigniting the spark between him and Alan. Guest starring Bryan Safi, Lainie Kazan, and Tim Rock.

    Here's your first look at two new characters joining our offbeat preteen crew in season two of Big Mouth! "Gina", voiced by Gina Rodriguez (Jane The Virgin) is a girl on Missy and Jessi's soccer team who shakes up the social dynamics of the school... ...can you say "Drama Alert"?!

Honestly, EVERYTHING is embarrassing this season, so stay tuned for more!

    Big Mouth is a 10-episode, half-hour edgy adult animated comedy from real-life best friends Nick Kroll (Kroll Show, The League) and Andrew Goldberg (Family Guy) about the glorious nightmare that is teenaged puberty. Comedian John Mulaney lends his voice to the character of Andrew, while Kroll (who serves as co-creator, executive producer) voices many including best friend Nick.

    Love at Sea

    Amidst the glittering sea and sky of the Caribbean, real life cruise enthusiasts Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids franchise) and her husband Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) star in Love at Sea, a new, original movie airing on Hallmark Channel as part of the network's annual "Summer Nights" programming event. Based on Barbara Oliverio's book "Love on the Lido Deck," Love at Sea is the networks second collaboration with the PenaVegas, who also serve as first-time executive producers on the film.


    Sweeping viewers away on a dream vacation, Love at Sea spans the vast and breathtaking Caribbean, sailing through exotic locales including Nassau, Bahamas and Basseterre, St. Kitts onboard Royal Caribbean's Harmony of the Seas. Love at Sea follows Olivia Grayham (Alexa PenaVega), a child of the hotel business, striking out on her own as an event planner. Tasked with organizing a multifaceted event for the fans onboard and online, Olivia has plotted the journey down to the last detail and planned for every possible contingency, or so she believes. She's no sooner onboard when she faces her first curveball: the ship's longtime cruise director has been reassigned and instead she will be working with his second-in-command, Tony Rieves (Carlos PenaVega), who has already begun putting his stamp on the ship's activities. With no option but to adjust to each unexpected development that comes her way, Olivia realizes that there are some things that simply can't be planned or anticipated - like falling love.

He appeared as attorney Brian Darrell in The Bold Ones: The Lawyers from 1969 to 1972.

    SitcomsOnline Digest: Looking Back at the Upfronts; Fresh Off the Boat and Last Man Standing DVDs Arriving on Tuesday

    Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! It should come as no surprise that all of the big news this week is about the upfront this week, including fall lineups, cancellations, and even some series getting a new life on another network (or streaming service as is the case in 2018). Let's get going!

    HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
    • The broadcast networks all announced their plans for the 2018-2019 season this week, and we have a brief summary and analysis for the sitcoms. (SitcomsOnline)
    • Does the new fall lineup remind you of 1988? It should. (Deadline)
    • The CW's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (notorious for being the lowest rated series to be repeatedly renewed, thanks to being so popular on Netflix) and Jane the Virgin will be returning next season, but both will also end next season. (AV Club)
    • It has been widely speculated that the twelfth season of The Big Bang Theory would be the final season, but CBS has absolutely no interest in letting go of their biggest comedy hit and is hoping it will not be the final season. (TV Guide)
    • ABC has cancelled Designated Survivor, but could Netflix save it? (Deadline)
    • Joseph Campanella, who has appeared on numerous series as both a regular and guest star, died this week at age 93. (Hollywood Reporter
    • As always, MeTV is bringing back their Summer of Me lineup, and The Jeffersons and Charlie's Angels will be part of that lineup this year. (SitcomsOnline)

    HOME MEDIA RELEASES (MAY 22)



    WEEKLY PLANNER (MAY 19 - MAY 25)
    • The first season of the new episodes of Roseanne, which turned out to be a much bigger deal than anybody anticipated, will come to an end on Tuesday on ABC (not to worry, it will return for a second new season in the fall). 
    • Meanwhile, The Middle, a staple of the ABC lineup for nearly the past decade, comes to an end with a series finale immediately after Roseanne on Tuesday.
    • The current cycle of The Voice will wrap up Monday and Tuesday night on NBC.
    • The season finale of Saturday Night Live, featuring Tina Fey (and hopefully her 30 Rock co-star Alec Baldwin will appear as well), airs tonight on NBC.
    • You can binge on Hawaii Five-O on Decades this weekend.
    • It has already been airing for a few weeks now, but in case you missed it, you can catch Benson on OWN every Sunday.

    Fri-Yay: How Did Sitcoms Fare at the Upfronts?

    It's time for another edition of Fri-Yay! That means we will take a look back on some sitcom happenings in recent days or weeks or other fun sitcomy stuff. It's a sitcom lover's paradise! Happy Fri-Yay!

    by Vincent

    ABC
    Renewed: Roseanne, Modern Family, The Goldbergs, black-ish, Fresh Off the Boat, Speechless, American Housewife, Splitting Up Together
    Cancelled: The Middle (ending), Alex Inc, The Mayor
    New Sitcoms: The Kids Are All Right, Single Parents, Schooled (mid-season)

    ABC's strong roster of sitcoms remains almost entirely in tact, with only freshman series Alex Inc and The Mayor getting the ax, while The Middle ends its nine-year run with a planned series finale this spring (airing this coming Tuesday night). This comes as no surprise. ABC has the strongest roster of sitcoms on all of the big 4 networks, and its line-up also has significantly more depth than any other network's sitcom roster- no other network can say they seven sitcoms that have reliably performed well for them. The network's drama slate, however, is far less sturdy, so ABC has wisely expanded its comedy block to a third night - Speechless and Fresh Off the Boat will move to Friday nights, reinstating a comedy block there just a year after the network blew it up by cancelling Last Man Standing and Dr. Ken. Some may see this as a downgrade for Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless, but comedy has done well on Fridays on ABC in the past, so fans shouldn't see this as a death knell. That said, both of these shows have generally been "bottom-of-the-hour" performers with decent-but-not-stellar audience retention from their anchors, so it will be interesting to see how they do on an island on Fridays.

    The Tuesday and Wednesday blocks are fairly similar to what they were this spring. Roseanne gets its 8 PM Tuesday slot back and leads into new comedy The Kids Are Alright (pretty much the best timeslot you can ask for as a new sitcom), while the black-ish/Splitting Up Together hour remains in tact at 9 PM. On Wednesday, The Goldbergs and Modern Family remain the 8 and 9 PM anchors, respectively, while American Housewife shifts up to 8:30 and newbie Single Parents gets the 9:30 slot. With so many hours devoted to sitcoms and plum timeslots for their freshman comedies, it's clear ABC is going big on sitcoms next year - and they have good reason to.

    CBS
    Renewed: The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon, Mom, Life in Pieces, Man With a Plan
    Cancelled: Kevin Can Wait, Superior Donuts, Living Biblically, Me Myself & I
    New Sitcoms: Murphy Brown (revival), The Neighborhood, Happy Together, Fam (midseason)

    CBS had a rather mixed year in the sitcoms department. While The Big Bang Theory remained huge and spin-off Young Sheldon had a big debut season, the network saw its Monday sitcom line-up completely deteriorate, with all four shows struggling to even hit a 1.0 in the 18-49 demo for most of the season. The network responded by cancelling the entire block with the exception of Man With a Plan (which was somewhat surprising, given that Kevin Can Wait was generally the block's highest performer), cutting half of the block and slotting in two new sitcoms, The Neighborhood and Happy Together, in the only two slots that remained. Leading off a night with two untested new sitcoms is a big gamble, especially when those sitcoms don't have any particular buzz around them. The network does have Life in Pieces and Man With a Plan left unscheduled, perhaps as emergency back-ups if either of those sitcoms fail. Even more interesting is that the previously announced Murphy Brown revival has been buried to 9:30pm on Thursdays rather than used as an anchor, showing that CBS doesn't seem to have faith it can be a Roseanne or even a Will & Grace-sized player. CBS's sitcom block had a lot of uncertainty this year, and that continues into its 2018-2019 line-up.

    NBC
    Renewed: Will & Grace, Superstore, The Good Place, AP Bio, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (acquired from Fox)
    Cancelled: Great News
    Fate TBD: Champions
    New Sitcoms: I Feel Bad, Abby's (midseason)

    NBC's return to its "Must See TV" comedy block on Thursdays went pretty decently this year, even if the Will & Grace revival couldn't keep up its early momentum and shows like Champions and Great News hit some cringe-worthy numbers. The network has a solid pairing in Superstore and The Good Place, and hopes to keep that brand of comedy going with Michael Schur-produced Abby's and the newly acquired Brooklyn Nine-Nine midseason. Amy Poehler-produced I Feel Bad gets the post-Will & Grace slot in the fall, and NBC hopes it will find more of an audience than its freshman comedies this season did, even if AP Bio mananged to squeak out a second season that its ratings didn't exactly call for. NBC still has a long ways to go before they relive their Must See TV sitcom glory days, but it certainly has the building blocks of a solid comedy roster, which is why the acquisition of studio-owned Brooklyn Nine-Nine makes perfect sense and should be a good fit with its sitcom block.

    Fox
    Renewed: The Simpsons, Family Guy, Bob's Burgers
    Cancelled: Brooklyn Nine-Nine (moving to NBC), New Girl (ending), The Last Man on Earth, The Mick
    Fate TBD: Ghosted, LA to Vegas
    New Series: The Cool Kids, Rel, Last Man Standing (revival)

    If ABC has banked on sitcoms next season, Fox has done exactly the opposite, wiping its entire live-action sitcom slate clean (unless Ghosted or LA to Vegas manage to pull through) and renewing only its animated anchors. After Fox cancelled all of its veteran sitcoms and revived Last Man Standing, there was a lot of chatter about the network's new direction and how its sitcom slate would likely favor broad, conservative-friendly comedy like Last Man Standing. That didn't really happen - yes, the Last Man Standing/Cool Kids block kind of looks like that, but it's relegated to Friday nights, the network's lone live-action sitcom block. This does make sense given that Last Man Standing spent most of its ABC run on Friday nights and did fairly well there, but it's still a bit of a surprise after all of the buzz around the revival. The network's only other new sitcom other than The Cool Kids is Rel, which doesn't even get the plum post-Simpsons slot and instead gets shafted to 9:30. The post-Simpsons slot instead goes to Bob's Burgers, which is an interesting move - given that The Simpsons and Family Guy are aging while Bob's Burgers has steadily been gaining momentum, is it possible they're prepping Bob's to be their new animated anchor? Regardless, this line-up certainly shows just how little confidence Fox has in its comedy brand right now, and it certainly screams "this is a network going through a major conglomerate change."

    So, once again, the future of sitcoms largely depends on what network you're watching. Nevertheless, there's certainly a lot of sitcoms to look forward to next fall, both new and returning series alike. It'll be interesting to see how the networks' line-ups fare, but we'll have to wait until the fall to see what happens!

Also claiming the title of No. 1 most social cable network for the 7th year in a row and the No. 1 network in digital viewing, Freeform is delivering on its new tagline "A Little Forward."

    New programming includes: Besties, a half-hour multi camera comedy from co-creators Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard has been ordered to series by Freeform following the enormous success of Barris's breakout coming-of-age show, grown-ish, the No. 1 cable comedy season-to-date (women 18-34.) This multi-cam sitcom explores friendship, identity, race, and class as two lifelong best friends use each other to get through some of the toughest challenges that they will ever face - figuring out who they are and who they want to be. Kenya Barris and Ranada Shepard are executive producers; the series is produced by ABC Signature Studios.

    I. Marlene King will expand the universe of Pretty Little Liars for Freeform with a 10-episode series order for Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists, featuring returning fan favorites Sasha Pieterse as Alison and Janel Parrish as Mona and starring Sofia Carson (Disney's Descendants) as Ava.

In Beacon Heights, a seemingly perfect town, a group of three college friends struggle with the stress of being overachievers. In the aftermath of the town's first murder, each Perfectionist hides behind a secret, a lie and an alibi.
