SitcomsOnline Digest: Fuller House Preview Trailer Debuts Online; YouTube Red Adding Original Series; NBC Giving Maya Rudolph Variety Show a Try

Welcome to SitcomsOnline Digest! This week, we're getting closer to the release of Fuller House on Netflix, preparing for a new variety show on NBC, and more. Also, CBS is bringing more of The Beverly Hillbillies to DVD. Let's get going!

HIGHLIGHTS FROM SITCOMSONLINE.COM AND AROUND THE WEB
  • People tend to get excited with every new detail that comes out about Fuller House, and this week, a "fuller" preview was released. (The Verge)
  • YouTube Red is getting into the original series business, though not quite on the level of Netflix, Amazon Prime, or Hulu... yet. (Deadline)
  • Even though NBC has already had one variety show that didn't work out, they're going to go ahead and try another one, with Maya Rudolph and Martin Short starring, and Saturday Night Live executive producer Lorne Michaels running the show. (Variety)
  • Fans of daytime soap operas will be pleased to know that NBC has renewed Days of Our Lives for an (almost) unheard of 51st season. (Deadline)
  • Ray Colcord may not a household name, but he was the man behind the theme songs and scores of series such as 227, Boy Meets World, Dinosaurs, Silver Spoons, Facts of Life, and My Two Dads, and he died this week at age 66. (Variety)
  • Before it could even debut, there was speculation that the CBS series Angel from Hell would be cancelled quickly, and now CBS has pulled it from the lineup. (SitcomsOnline)

HOME MEDIA HIGHLIGHTS
  • CBS has released the second, third, and fourth seasons of The Beverly Hillbillies on a sporadic basis since 2008, and now, they're going backwards (a bit) to release The Beverly Hillbillies - The Official First Season. Previously available only in public domain releases, as well as from some decent (though not perfect) releases from MPI, this set will arrive on April 26.

    Claim to Fame: Marcus Scribner plays Andre Johnson Jr. on the ABC series black-ish. Born in Los Angeles in 2000, he just recently celebrated his 16th birthday, and the whole idea of "fame" is something that is relatively new to him. His first TV role came in an episode of Castle in 2010, followed by a role in New Girl in 2012, and of course his regular role began on black-ish in 2014. While he is still a child actor right now, we don't really know what will be next for him as his role on black-ish continues (the series is doing fine in the ratings, so we aren't seeing an end to that role anytime in the immediate future), but we're sure he'll have more to add to his resume as he ages.
