Releasing Fix-It Felix Jr (the game from ‘Wreck-It Ralph’) as a playable flash app was smart (if not inevitable) by Disney. But if the Mouse House was really smart, they’d get it out on iOS and Android too.
Maron announced on his podcast this week that he recently wrote, produced, and starred in a scripted TV pilot based on his popular WTF Podcast.
Sounds to me like he got the ever elusive “Louis-CK-deal.”
The filming went down last week at his home and around his neighborhood. Television comedy icon Ed Asner plays Maron’s father; rising comedic voices like W. Kamau Bell and Sean Patton co-star– not to mention Seth Morris, Matt Jones, Erin Daniels and Trimbur.
The script was written by Maron and Duncan Birmingham.
The studio in charge is Fox TV Studios and Apostle (headed by comedian Denis Leary and Jim Serpico) is the production company, and the show is executive produced by Olivia Wingate and Serpico.
The show was shot as a presentation. It’ll likely be at least a month before we know if the show will proceed to the next step.
Let me remind you that season 5 takes place during Corey, Shawn, and Topanga’s senior year of high school and not only does it feature the classic horror send up “And Then There Was Shawn” (Best episode ever? Maybe.) but it’s got the gut wrenching “Starry Night.” If you buy only one season of Boy Meets World, five would be an excellent choice.
Though the rest of the seasons are available at ridiculously good prices as well. So why not get ‘em all?
“Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America,” a book “written by” Leslie Knope but really worked on by Schur and many other members of the “Parks and Rec” cast and creative team.
As Schur explained it to [Alan Sepinwall], in the “Time Capsule” episode, we see that Leslie has prepared a book on Pawnee’s history, and this is that book - “but the professsional version. From her POV, with contributions from every character and many minor characters. Got contributions from Fred Armisen (who appeared in season two’s “Sister City”), Ben Schwartz (who plays Jean-Ralphio), (Nick) Offerman, Amy (Poehler), and a bunch of others. Part history, part travel guide, (with) sections on raccoons, Eagleton, Joan Calamezzo, Crazy Ira and the Douche — basically everything that’s ever appeared in the show.”
“Pawnee: The Greatest Town in America” won’t come out until October 4 (by which point season 4 will have hopefully begun), but if there’s one thing this delayed season of “Parks and Rec” has taught us, it’s that things having to do with Pawnee are almost always worth the wait.

NBC and Ben & Jerry’s are set to announce Jimmy Fallon’s “Late Night Snack” Ice Cream Wednesday at a press conference at 30 Rock. The above image leaked on Tumblr, with the food stuff already shipping to some stores.
FUDGE COVERED POTATO CHIP CLUSTERS. GAH.

I got the Jimmy Fallon ice cream.
***For people asking, I got it at Giant.
I just opened this week’s People magazine and was greeted by this fabulous ad. Very clever, definitely strikes at their key demographic, especially those who watch The Big Bang Theory, like me. And then I looked at it closer. Maybe I’m reading too much in to this, okay, of course I am. But look at Leonard, Sheldon and Penny. Clearly they’re Luke, Han and Leia. Have you noticed it yet?
Yup, Sheldon is the one the posing as Han, and since Penny is Leia (being the only girl) I can only draw one conclusion from this. Sheldon and Penny are meant for each other!! Okay, I doubt that it would ever happen but it would just make my life if it did. I think they’ve got the perfect ‘opposites attract thing’ going on. I mean, sure Leonard’s great but we all know a “relationship” between Sheldon and Penny would be effing hilarious!
Like I said, I though waaaaay too much about this.
I’m going out to buy a People magazine just for this. I want this poster size for my wall.

Want. Though they wouldn’t need this on the Enterprise considering their food materializes out of nothing.
