<i>Brooklyn Nine-Nine</i> Star Chelsea Peretti Finds the Fun in Everything
Huffington Post - about 3 years
I've been dining at a quaint little Italian café in Los Feliz called Little Doms with actress/comedian/writer Chelsea Peretti for two only minutes, but she's already teasing me about our interview. "I mean, can I just say a string of lies?" she asks with a devilish grin. "How much do you guys fact check over there?" When I encourage her that feeding this publication a string of lies -- essentially "trolling" proper journalism -- would offer an enlightening and entertaining perspective for me as a writer, she rolls her emerald-green eyes. "Aw, well that takes the fun out of it." Peretti looks for the fun in everything. Our banter is off the cuff and down to earth. She touches upon the times she sat next to West Coast hip-hop pioneer, Too Short, on a plane ("He was writing raps right beside me, so it was a real Oakland moment."), the addictive nature of iPhone app Candy Crush ("Sometimes I spend entire breaks between scenes glued to that game") and horsing around with co-stars on se ...

Tough Guys Help Children With Disabilities
Huffington Post - about 3 years
When most people in this country think of autism, they think of Adam Lanza, who shot and killed 20 young children and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012. But Lanza, who reportedly had been diagnosed with autism, was an outlier. The vast majority of those in the spectrum of disorders are not violent. Anne Schneider Costigan, deputy executive director of the Foundation of the Center for Disability Services in Albany, N.Y., has worked with children, teens and adults with disabilities for nearly thirty years. The center, which was started by seven families in 1942 with a mission primarily to treat patients with cerebral palsy, has expanded over the decades to service 15,000 people with 307 types of disabilities, including autism, Asperger's Syndrome and other behavioral and physical diagnoses. Costigan, who is in charge of fund-raising and special events at the center, recently held the organization's annual telethon, which in its 54 ...

Golden Globe Nominations For Latinos Are Lacking In 2014
Huffington Post - about 3 years
While recent award shows have been host to a sea of Latinos, the upcoming Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 12, 2014 in Beverly Hills, Calif. seem to be a little more than lacking. The nominations roster for the 71st edition of the Golden Globe Awards was released a couple of weeks ago in L.A and surprisingly not many Hispanic last names made the cut. Household name Sofia Vergara is one of the few names that did nab a Golden Globe nomination. This is her 4th time being nominated in the category of Best Performance by a Supporting Actress in a Series, Mini Series or Television Film, though Vergara has never taken the Golden Globe to her ‘casa.’ Still, Vergara shared her excitement saying: “My Golden Globes are still going strong!…Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this nomination and for nominating the cast of Modern Family. It’s truly an honor.” The Latino behind Gravity and a Guatemalan Hunk Mexican director Alfonso Cuaron must feel just as excited as the ov ...

The Tuesday Playlist: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Dads Premiere; Covert Affairs, Suits Depart
Seattle Pi - over 3 years
Even gifted veterans like Martin Mull and Peter Riegert, as obnoxiously exasperating parents who move in with their dismally unpleasant business-partner sons (a flip Seth Green and whiny Giovanni Ribisi), can't do much to elevate material that in the pilot episode (Tuesday, 8/7c) fancies itself shocking when it stoops to racially insensitive humor - and in next week's second episode, falls back on the tired cliché of everyone acting goofy when stoned on pot brownies. Whereas Brooklyn Nine-Nine (8:30/7:30c), a police comedy that aspires to the humanistic grit and heart of a Barney Miller, earns its badge of distinction with smart irreverence and sharply defined characters in an admirably diverse ensemble, led by Saturday Night Live ex-pat Andy Samberg as Jake Peralta, the precinct cut-up who's actually a first-rate detective, and the estimable Andre Braugher proving a deft hand at subtle comedy as the Nine-Nine's deadpan new captain Ray Holt, whose intriguing back story makes him mu ...

The Portland Mercury - over 3 years
Recommended for old people who like new things. by Wm.™ Steven Humphrey For those who pride yourselves on your oh-so-interesting "social lives," you're gonna have to think of something else to bore us to tears with—because the new fall season of TV shows starts this week! HURRAY!! Boooooo old things! Yaaaaaaay new things! And sure, while most of the shows debuting this week range from somewhat-to-downright terrible—hey! THEY'RE NEW. And I'll take a semi-terrible new thing over a semi-terrible old thing any day of the week. (And yes, I'm looking at YOU, Dancing with the Stars and Speaker of the House John Boehner!) So let's take a look at these shiny, new, somewhat terrible baubles, shall we? Getting out ahead of the rest of the networks, Fox is debuting three of its new shows this week, and here's the lowdown: • Sleepy Hollow (Fox, Mon Sept 16, 9 pm).

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Is More Than You Think It Is
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" stars Andy Samberg (who is also a producer on the series), Andre Braugher and Terry Crews as cops in Brooklyn, and the show shares more creative DNA with "The Office" and "Parks and Recreation" than with cop spoofs. "This is not 'Police Squad' -- this is a workplace comedy that happens to be set in a police precinct," "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" executive producer Mike Schur said at the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour panel on Thursday morning. "The idea is that they're real cops and the crimes that they're investigating are real crimes ... We want it to seem like a real precinct. It's hard sometimes because of 'Police Squad' and 'Naked Gun,' but we have a cat of nine tails, and when one of us pitches a joke like that, we whip each other." "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has much more in common with "Barney Miller," which the producers cite as a major influence. "The most realistic depiction of police work ever on TV was 'Barney Miller," a ...

Melissa Fumero Lands Big Role
Huffington Post - about 4 years
By Michael Lopez As we mentioned before, you can expect a lot more Latinos on the small screen this fall. And one rising star who you should definitely keep your eye on is Melissa Fumero. The One Life To Live vet just booked a role on a high-profile TV pilot starring Andy Samberg. Poking fun at all the cop dramas we know and love, the untitled Samberg show has some impressive talent behind it. Parks and Recreation masterminds Mike Schur and Dan Goor are producing and The Expendables’ Terry Crews has committed to the cast. But our attention will definitely be focused on Fumero. The 30-year-old Cubana is fresh off a very memorable stint on Gossip Girl. Now she’ll be playing a hard-nosed detective (and a possible love interest for Andy). According to, Melissa’s pilot is one of the most promising of the season and Fox has all but confirmed it to the schedule. Let’s just hope it finally gets a name before the premiere date.
