Friends from College is a comedic exploration of old friendships, former romantic entanglements and balancing adult life with nostalgia for the past when a group of friends from college begin to deal with the fact that, as they reach their forties, things haven’t necessarily worked out as they hoped.
Friends From College stars Keegan Michael Key, Cobie Smulders, Fred Savage, Annie Parisse, Nat Faxon and Jae Suh Park – and will premiere on Netflix this summer.
Fred Savage will host Ricky Gervais’ new game show Child Support on ABC. The one-hour game show will feature adult contestants and priceless interactions between funny man Gervais and a group of five kids, ages 6–9 years old, who say the most unpredictable things.
Contestants are asked to answer 10 questions correctly to earn the top prize. If they answer incorrectly, the contestants have a chance to be saved by the five kids who have been asked the same question by Gervais. A premiere date has not yet been announced.
Savage commented, “When I’m stumped, I turn to Google and my kids. I had no idea there was a television show in that, but now that there is, I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
FOX has given The Grinder – an odd couple/sibling rivalry legal comedy – an order for a full season.
The series – in which Lowe plays a former TV lawyer who intrudes into his family’s legal practice, overshadowing his younger brother (played by Fred Savage) – has given the network a 70% increase in ratings over last year. Follow the jump for more.
