More sign on to Sarah’s HBO pilot

Posted by Gator on February 27th, 2015

DavenportAndKenneyIt is being reported today that Jack Davenport, star of the TV musical series, Smash, has signed onto Sarah’s yet untitled HBO pilot, as the male lead.  Sarah’s role, Jude, has been called “a pathologically honest woman having a modern midlife crisis.” Davenport will play Blake, “a broken Brit and eventual boyfriend [of Jude] who gets caught up in his own virtual reality.”  Also in the pilot will reportedly be Kerri Kenney (of Reno 911!) as Melissa, “Jude’s older sister who is proudly holding the family together, with no idea her home is built on lies.”

Earlier this month, it was reported that the pilot will be directed by Charlie McDowell, who previously directed the romantic comedy, The One I Love. The initial announcement of the HBO plans, last December, touted Lucy Prebble, creator of Secret Diary Of A Call Girl, as slated to write the show.

Handler describes creating ad with Sarah

Posted by Gator on February 2nd, 2015

Chelsea Handler was on Access Hollywood Live this morning, and she briefly described the creative contributions she and Sarah made during the filming of their Superbowl 2015 T-Mobile commercial.

 [We excerpted just the relevant piece.]

Video: Sarah’s Superbowl Ad

Posted by Gator on February 1st, 2015

Here’s the actual Superbowl 2015 ad Sarah and Chelsea Handler did for T-Mobile.

UPDATE: Turns out that controversy has followed the airing of this ad. Some people are on the Internet ranting about the “Sorry, it’s a boy” line in the hospital delivery room.  We’re not posting any of those comments; we just mention their existence as news here, and respond: Get a sense of humor. It was obviously a joke in a commerical whose concept was total irony.
