“I’m going to keep trying to come up with original stories and meet the expectations the audience has for me,” Jordan Peele said on a recent edition of Variety’s podcast. “I hope to continue to lift original filmmakers up.”And he’s been true to his word.

Clayton Davis Jordan Peele is looking to push boundaries as a writer, director and producer every time he creates something new. “I’m going to keep trying to come up with original stories, and meet the expectations the audience has for me,” Peele says. “I hope to continue to lift original filmmakers up.” On this episode of the award-winning Variety Awards Circuit Podcast, we sit down with Academy Award winner Peele to discuss his two feature film projects in the awards conversation: the sci-fi horror film “Nope,” which he wrote and directed, and the animated feature “Wendell & Wild,” which he voiced, co-wrote and produced.

Scott Huver “Reboot” creator Steven Levitan admits that having a cast stacked with Hollywood veterans, including Keegan-Michael Key, Judy Greer, Johnny Knoxville, Rachel Bloom and Paul Reiser, was almost like having a second writers’ room when it came to war stories for the show’s inside-Hollywood view of rebooting a beloved, 20-year-old sitcom. “We would just be sitting around talking and then someone would say this, ‘Oh, this reminds me of the time this has happened,’ and then [the writers] refined it in next week’s script,” laughed the “Modern Family” co-creator at the premiere of his new Hulu series, held on the Fox lot that also serves as the backdrop for the show.
Rachel Bloom, Keegan-Michael Key and Judy Greer hit the red carpet for the premiere of their new series, Reboot, held at the Fox Studio Lot on Monday (September 19) in Los Angeles.
James Corden had Keegan-Michael Key on Monday’s episode of “The Late Late Show,” and he roped to “Key and Peel” and “Schmigadoon!” star into one of his more fun recurring gags, “Improvised TED Talks.” The topic was “The life-changing power of vacuuming in the nude,” and since we can’t top that here, we’ll just get right to it.So the gag, for those who don’t know, is Corden has one of his celebrity guests give a totally unrehearsed, unresearched TED Talk on a topic they don’t know about in advance. Comedy very generally ensues, especially on Monday’s episode since Key is, you know, something of a well regarded comedy person.“You know, ladies and gentlemen, I find that, when I’m at home and I’m, uh, doing the house work, that my wife becomes very happy,” Key said as he kicked off his awkward lecture. “I have also found that when I have no clothing on in my home, my wife also is happy.
Reboot on . I haven't been this excited about a new comedy since premiered in 2009. Makes sense: Reboot also comes from Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan. In the series, a writer (played by ) decides she wants to reboot a popular '90s sitcom, which will remind you of Full House meets My Two Dads.
Keegan-Michael Key) who unsuccessfully pursued a film career after the show (but nobody appreciated his insights from having attended the Yale School of Drama); Bree Marie Larson (Judy Greer), who has a romantic past with Reed, followed up the sitcom with a stint on a terrible sci-fi show, then left Hollywood to marry the Duke of a small Nordic country; Clay Barber (Johnny Knoxville), who did some stints of stand up comedy after “Step Right Up,” in between getting arrested for disorderly conduct, and Zack (Calum Worthy), the show’s former child star who’s all grown up now and feels the need to prove it by driving a red sports car and telling his fellow cast members that although they’re back together for this show, “It’s different now, because we’ve all had sex.” Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex Girlfriend”) co-stars as Hannah, a writer pitching this reboot who wants to make an edgier version where the sitcom characters “don’t do the right thing anymore”, and Paul Reiser co-stars as Gordon, the original “Step Right Up” creator who wants the reboot to be more traditional. Naturally, this leads to some awkward clashing between Gordon and Hannah, as they have different creative approaches to this reboot project. Shows that attempt to be meta can sometimes get too inside baseball with showbiz references, but “Reboot” is clever and funny, for the most part.
Matt Donnelly Senior Film Writer Legendary improv and sketch comedy haven The Second City has named Ed Wells as chief executive officer. The former global head of media and education for Sesame Workshop joins the company to drive strategic growth in areas including content creation, distribution and consumer products. It’s a no-brainer for the incubator to comedy all-stars like Bill Murray, Tina Fey, Chris Farley, Tim Meadows, Amy Poehler, Jason Sudeikis, Eugene Levy and Keegan-Michael Key. At Sesame, where Wells also served as executive vice president, he oversaw an aggressive international expansion for all things Elmo and Big Bird.
It must be tough to work with Jordan Peele – not because he seems a particularly difficult collaborator (quite the opposite, frankly), but because lazy and/or SEO-hunting websites tend to ascribe his ownership to just about anything he touches. We saw it with last year’s “Candyman” (which he co-wrote and produced but did not direct), with Spike Lee’s “BlackKklansman” (producer), with the recent “Honk For Jesus.
There’s something depressing in watching talented comedians struggle to get laughs from weak screenwriting. This repeatedly happens in the first three-to-four episodes of Hulu’s “Reboot,” a show with a great cast and even a clever idea but faulty comic timing and clichéd joke writing.

Marc Malkin Senior Film Awards, Events & Lifestyle EditorAccording to Chris Pratt, his voice performance as Mario in the upcoming feature adaptation of the Super Mario Bros. video game will be “unlike anything you’ve heard.”Variety got the chance to catch up with Pratt at the Wednesday night premiere of his new Amazon Prime Video series “The Terminal List” (more on that later!) to talk about finding his voice for the film, which co-stars Charlie Day as Luigi.There’s been much internet discussion over Pratt’s casting in the animated film as the Italian plumber despite his non-Italian background, with critics expressing concern that his accent could potentially be offensive.
