Deadline is calling it “Modern Family from a toddler’s point of view.” I’m calling it “something to report on a slowish news day.” Darren Star, who has previously ventured into the world of the self-involved with 90210, Melrose Place, and Sex and the City, will now be tackling an adaptation of The Honest Toddler: A Child’s Guide to Parenting.

I’m so happy that this will mesh with our readership’s taste. Screen Junkies readers LOVE stories based on child-raising books. Oh, it warrants mentioning that the series of books is based on a Twitter account that was created during a particularly trying day for a housewife.

It’s not quire the the origin story of 50 Shades of Grey, but it’s still bad enough to report.

Judd Apatow’s New HBO Series ‘Girls’ Gets A Trailer http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/judd-apatows-new-hbo-series-girls-gets-a-trailer/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/judd-apatows-new-hbo-series-girls-gets-a-trailer/#comments Tue, 13 Dec 2011 00:44:44 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=239463 I want these girls to challenge the 'Sex and the City' girls to a fight.

The new HBO series Girls, from comedy wunderkind Judd Apatow, appears to be HBO’s take on a Sex and the City mulligan. It’s about a group of girls that live in New York in their 20′s, and rather than predicating the show on fantasy, outlandish situations, and labored penis puns, Girls appears to focus on broke, smart characters trying to keep their heads above water.

It’s Apatow and HBO, so the trailer more than hints at some comical raunchiness, but there seems to be some underlying charm courtesy of the creator and star of the show, Lena Dunham. Her sensibilities offer an endearing optimism as the characters repeatedly get kicked by many aspects of life.

The show premieres in April, one of seemingly dozens of new shows from the network, but I expect this to stand out and transcend gender in a way that Sex and the City never could.

‘Sex And The City’ Prequel Series Will Show Us How They All Became So Shrill And Insufferable http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sex-and-the-city-prequel-series-will-show-us-how-they-all-became-so-shrill-and-insufferable/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/sex-and-the-city-prequel-series-will-show-us-how-they-all-became-so-shrill-and-insufferable/#comments Mon, 12 Sep 2011 16:43:34 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=227964 It's scheduled to come out in fall 2012. Come on, Mayans. Do your thing!

Yeah, this is something that’s happening. Sex and the City will be back, in prequel form on the CW, presumably to cater to the younger set with even baser, more euphemistic puns and the promise of side-al nudity. The program will be called The Carrie Diaries, which probably tested well in focus groups because The Carrie Diaries sounds like something that would have tested pretty well in focus groups.

Because Sarah Jessica played a character that was roughly 78 years old on the HBO version, The Carrie Diaries will begin with Carrie’s senior year in small-town America. “From the big farm to the big apple.”

That’s what a tagline will probably be.

A young (read: 63 or so) Samantha will join Carrie in her small town exploits, but she will be the only one of the NYC guard joining Carrie, which reinforces my theory that Stanford was the result of a secret government experiment to make the perfect homosexual stereotype.

In case you couldn’t have just assumed, the show will be produced by Gossip Girl producers Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage. Original SATC creator Darren Star isn’t attached to the CW version, which means that the show will find a totes new way to be horrible.

I’m sorry I ruined your week. It’s 9:35 AM Monday. I held out as long as I could.

‘Entourage’ Just Won’t Die http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/entourage-just-wont-die/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/entourage-just-wont-die/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 "Entourage" is on its way out at HBO. According to Latino Review, the show will air its final episode next summer. But that doesn't mean that (insert douche bag lead character's name here before you publish) and the gang are finished. It seems they'll be living on in movie form. Mark Wahlberg recently mentioned the likelihood of an "Entourage" film, and now creator Doug Ellin is expressing interest in writing a script. And if HBO's other *sshole-based show, "Sex and the City," is any indication, the network is all about a movie spin off. The real question is whether the show will stay relevant long enough to warrant a film, or will a movie version suffer from the same indifference as X-Files: I Want to Believe. Based on this season's reviews, fans are already losing interest, and I can't say I blame them. If I wanted to watch a bunch of Hollywood D-Bags having sex, I'd get a part-time job as a maintenance man at the Roosevelt Hotel and secretly plant webcams in all of the suites and public bathrooms. I mean, ya know, if I were so inclined, which I'm totally not.
