SNL Backstage - Zach Galifianakis Shaves His Head Like Mr. T

(Source: amyohconnor)

On Sunday, February 20th at 9pm, NBC is premiering a new two-hour SNL special called Saturday Night Live Backstage. It’ll be “a behind-the-scenes tour throughout the show’s long history highlighting previously untold stories of auditions, censorship, Weekend Update, and more.” 

But what about James Franco’s SNL documentary?

Chelsea Handler will star in After Lately, a new scripted comedy series on E! The 35-year-old comedian will begin work in a few weeks on the show, which will show what it’s like to be backstage at Chelsea Lately, similar to the format of HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show. “The show is a behind-the-scenes look at what happens at our office when the cameras are off,” Chelsea told Variety. “A perfect platform for people who have no business being on camera.” While no premiere date has been set yet, eight episodes are in the works.

Look at E! taking a risk on a scripted comedy show. Anything that’s drawing similarities to The Larry Sanders Show is a good thing. Considering it’s a backstage show I do have to ask, is Aaron Sorkin writing it?

NBC and the TV Academy will produce a behind-the-scenes look at the Emmy Awards that will stream online.

For the first time in Emmy history, organizers are creating a concurrent companion awards coverage program consisting of backstage content.

 

Dubbed “Backstage Live @ the Emmys,” the show will run on Emmys.com, NBC.com and Ustream.com.

Seven cameras will be positioned in various areas backstage, capturing reactions from the stars. Viewers will see nominees and presenters preparing before going on stage, making speeches at a special “thank you camera”  and in other locations.
