Amy Poehler: There's a same-sex hookup on 'Broad City' this season

Broad City is a lot of things, but it is not necessarily parent-appropriate: The Comedy Central show covers topics ranging from hiding weed in vaginas to accidental foursomes. But as it turns out, Broad City first began as a web series in part because of its creators’ parents.

“We came to a point where we wanted to make more permanent material,” Broad City‘s co-creator and star Ilana Glazer said at Sunday’s Paley Center and New York Comedy Festival event, “Id Isn’t Always Pretty: An Evening with Broad City.” Before the web series, before the half-hour show, Glazer and Abbi Jacobson were doing improv at New York’s Upright Citizens Brigade. “Something we say is we wanted to send our parents links.” READ FULL STORY

10 great reveals and moments at 'The Wire' PaleyFest reunion panel

The cast of The Wire had a whole lot of fun during Thursday’s reunion panel at New York’s Paley Center for Media.

Show co-creator David Simon, executive producer Nina Noble, cast members Michael Kenneth Williams, Wendell Pierce, Sonja Sohn, Seth Gilliam, Jim True-Frost, John Doman, Lawrence Gilliard Jr, and Jamie Hector took the stage, while surprise guests and cast members Tristan Wilds, J.D. Williams, Bob Wisdom, and Michelle Paress took seats in the audience. The show’s Brits, Dominic West and Idris Elba, were both unable to make the panel, but popped their heads in (quite literally) with video messages. HitFix TV critic Alan Sepinwall moderated the event.

The panel delved into a variety of topics Wire obsessives were frothing at the mouth to discuss, including the show’s low ratings and high acclaim—which frustrated the cast and crew—and the show’s increasingly perilous livelihood every season. The talk also covered whether Simon is interested in continuing the series, which beloved character wasn’t supposed to make it past the first season, and Williams’ initial reluctance at the focus on the dock workers in season two. Here are a few things that EW heard and saw throughout the night.

10 things we learned about 'Bob's Burgers' at its PaleyFest panel

New York’s Paley Center for Media is in the middle of its TV-centric PaleyFest, which includes several panel discussions with the casts and crews of critically beloved shows. Last night, EW caught one with the people behind Bob’s Burgers—including voice actors H. Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal, John Roberts, and the show’s creator, Loren Bouchard.

The hour-long conversation frequently detoured into improvisational riffing by the cast, but it also delivered some interesting information about the show. Here are ten of the best tidbits we learned.

The show works at its own pace. Its creators are willing to sacrifice the kind of up-to-the-minute timeliness of a show like South Park in order to concentrate on small details. Some episodes have taken up to a year to produce from start to finish. READ FULL STORY

'Cougar Town' cast pounds grape at NYC Paley Center event

Okay, so the Cougar Town cast and creators weren’t pounding grape quite like the cul-de-sac crew does, but they came with red wine in hand to last night’s Paley Center panel. The event was just the latest of a series of viewing parties that the cast and co-creators and executive producers Bill Lawrence and Kevin Biegel organized as part of a grassroots campaign. With the ABC comedy stuck in TV schedule limbo, they decided that sitting around and doing nothing was not an option. “For Bill and for me it was kind of a no brainer,” Biegel said. “Why would you not do this?
