Friends From College Gets a Second Season at Netflix
Renewals don’t come so easily at Netflix these days, so Nicholas Stoller and Francesca Delbanco’s Friends From College did pretty well for itself.
The series had plenty of different nuanced and complex relationships woven between “friend from college” that one has to wonder where exactly they’ll go with a second season. Maybe if this’ll end up being a more grounded Wet Hot American Summer where the cast actually plays roles that are more age appropriate and return a few years older.
We’ll just have to wait and see.

The Intervention Might Just Be the Dramedy of the Year
Clea DuVall’s debut as a writer/director is a pretty damn fine one.
Her film, The Intervention, following a “marriage intervention” is simultaneously well crafted, emotionally charged, and laugh out loud hysterical. The notable ensemble cast of Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Ben Schwartz, Natasha Lyonne, DuVall, Alia Shawkat, and Vincent Piazza do not disappoint either in handling the delicate material.
If you want more comedy in your dramedies or want to see something that exhibits the real nitty gritty of several different relationships, but does actually celebrate the idea of love without seeming too heavy handed, The Intervention just might be for you.
Trailer for “Intervention” Dramedy from Clea DuVall Brings Up a Different Sort of Intervention
The A&E series Intervention brings to mind the struggles of those with various drug and substance abuses and the harrowing journey that all of that entails.
The Clea DuVall movie of the same name does track an Intervention, but it has nothing to really do with the ‘usual suspects’ that force an intervention.
Instead, Ben Schwartz, Alia Shawkat, Clea DuVall, Melanie Lynskey, Natasha Lyonne, and Jason Ritter give Vincent Piazza and Cobie Smulders the sort of intervention that might become more commonplace after this movie hits theaters.
Look for Intervention, the dramedy feature film, in theaters on August 26th.
Check Out The Trailer for Andrew Bujalski’s Rom Com of Sorts “Results”
The man behind the wonderfully out there Computer Chess, Andrew Bujalski, brings his take on a romantic comedy with Results.
A very strange love triangle forms between personal trainers played by Cobie Smulders and Guy Pearce and a new rich client played by Kevin Corrigan in Results which seems to go a little off on a tangent from typical rom com fare.
Watching this trailer, we’re into it.
Look for results in limited release starting May 29th.
