Screenwriter Dan Fogelman Talks THE GUILT TRIP, LAST VEGAS, THE NEIGHBORS, Being on the 50 SHADES OF GREY Shortlist, and More

This holiday season, you can celebrate family at the movies with The Guilt Trip, which tells the story of Andy Brewster (Seth Rogen), as he embarks on a cross-country road trip with his mother, Joyce (Barbra Streisand), to turn one of his inventions into a success. With both funny and poignant moments on their mother-son adventure, each realizes that they just want the other to be happy.

At the film’s press day, writer/executive producer Dan Fogelman spoke to Collider for this exclusive interview about taking a road trip with his own mom to inspire the script, that Barbra Streisand was his mom’s hero, making sure everything in the film came from a place of love, the scene he was most looking forward to seeing brought to life, why mother-son relationships are rarely explored in film, and how he loves it when actors improvise.  He also talked about how cool it is to have Robert DeNiro, Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas and Kevin Kline make up the cast for Last Vegas, which he wrote with Jon Turteltaub directing, what made Imagine (with Al Pacino, Julianne Moore and Jeremy Renner) the right film for him to make his directorial debut with, how much he’s enjoying the success of the ABC comedy series The Neighbors, which he created, and what interested him in the possibility of writing the 50 Shades of Grey movie (he was on the shortlist).  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

ABC Cancels LAST RESORT and 666 PARK AVENUE, Gives THE NEIGHBORS a Full-Season Order

by     Posted 2 years, 11 days ago

last-resort-666-park-avenue-slice

ABC will let freshman dramas Last Resort and 666 Park Avenue finish out their 13-episode seasons before giving them the ax. The network recently picked up two additional scripts for each show, but decided to pass on a renewal due to underwhelming ratings. Co-creators Shawn Ryan (The Shield) and Karl Gajdusek spoke recently on the challenges of keeping the rogue submarine drama Last Resort afloat, but the network has torpedoed it. (Apologies for the nautical puns; I’m out of my depth.)

Fans of the show will be able to see the first season of Last Resort, starring Andre Braugher and Scott Speedman, air in its entirety in its original time slot of Thursdays at 8pm. Don’t feel too bad for Ryan, who has the Beverly Hills Cop series in development at CBS with Eddie Murphy and Brandon T. Jackson attached. Ryan also has a U.S. Marshal project underway at TNT. Hit the jump for more on the demise of 666 Park Avenue and the upcoming slate of new shows on ABC.

Wednesday night’s TV ratings are in, and it’s not pretty.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • NBC’s comedy series Whitney kicked off its second season last night with a 1.4 rating and 4.23 million viewers for a drop of 13% from its season one finale rating of 1.6.  That matches the show’s series low performance and is even with Animal Practice’s Wednesday launch numbers, the now-cancelled series that Whitney replaced.
  • It appears that last week’s high numbers for the NBC drama Chicago Fire were short-lived, as it was back to business as usual this week with a 1.6 rating and 5.7 million viewers.  That’s a drop of 27% from last week’s 2.2 rating.
  • ABC’s drama Nashville also dropped despite the fact that it recently received a full season pick-up, as last night’s episode drew a 1.8 rating and 5.9 million viewers.  That’s down 10% from last week’s 2.0 rating.
