Hanging Out In the ‘Writers’ Room’
Community‘s Jim Rash hosts Sundance’s Writers’ Room, which reveals what it’s like inside the writers’ rooms of televisions most popular shows. The show is not for everyone. Two types of people will like it: fans of the show being featured on that week’s episode and aspiring television writers, who will tune in for every episode. The former group will only watch an episode or two. They will agree with Zap2it‘s assessment of the show feeling like “a glorified DVD box set extra.” Aspiring television writers will disagree because the show provides important insight into how a writers’ room operates, such as some people stressing over how the story progresses and others taking the role of cheerleader.
Fox Takes New Girl On The Road
New Girl, the Fox sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel, is hitting the road with “The New Girl True American Bus Tour.” The tour will feature the party school bus that Jess borrowed for Schmidt’s birthday and will visit various cities all over the country. At each stop, fans will be able to watch exclusive videos and various New Girl merchandise, such as Jess’s signature glasses and New Girl T-shirts with logos and catchphrases from the show. Some of the catchphrases available on the shirts are “Pink Wine Makes Me Slutty” and “Schmidt Happens.” You will also be able to reenact the New Girl‘s opening theme song in a photo, eat Jess’s cupcakes, and play “douchebag jar” pong for prizes.
