Here is a wrap-up of all the news you need to know from Thursday, April 27, 2023.
Adam Brody is teaming up with Kristen Bell.
Netflix announced that The OC alum will star in the untitled series from Erin Foster.
“A comedy centered on the unlikely relationship between an outspoken, agnostic woman (Bell) and an unconventional rabbi (Brody),” the short and sweet logline reads.
Brody will play Noah, a charming rabbi who is stuck in his ways and used to playing things safe.
He starts to stumble when he meets a brutally honest and provocative Joanne, totally upending his safe life plan.
Aside from the above, details are scarce about the project, so we’ll need to wait until more information is revealed.
Meanwhile, FX has confirmed It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia will return for season 16 on Wednesday, June 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FXX and streaming the next day on Hulu.
The premiere will include the first two episodes, with a new episode each following week. Season 16 of Sunny will be available on Star+ in Latin America and Disney+ under the Star banner in all other territories.
The Gang(TM) is ripping straight from the headlines – Inflation, US-Russian relations, mental health, gender equality, injury liability, gun control, and… celebrity-branded products.
But there’s nothing sweet about them as Ronald “Mac” MacDonald (Rob McElhenney), Charlie Kelly (Charlie Day), Dennis Reynolds (Glenn Howerton), Dee Reynolds (Kaitlin Olson), and Frank Reynolds (Danny DeVito) yearn for the past as they attempt to survive in 2023.
This year alone, Mac battles with allergies and long-distance dating, Charlie takes on his long-forgotten sisters, Dee fights for rent control and women’s athletics, Frank wrestles for his gun, and Dennis struggles to improve his mental health.
At the end of the day, they’re navigating 2023 with 16 years of baggage as a few figures from their past rear their heads.
