The panel will “playfully dissect the week’s televisual complaints, looking for resolutions, and ultimately deciding whether the viewers’ feedback will be upheld or rejected.””. https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/6453/complaints-welcome-channel-4-series/

CBS Sitcoms – Will be returning in September and October, with a list of dates here: https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/hit-and-run-premiere-date-netflix-teaser-tv-news-roundup-1235016287/

Created by Jordan Weiss, “Dollface” centers on a young woman named Jules (“2 Broke Girls” and “WandaVision” star Kat Dennings), who, in the aftermath of a breakup, tries to rekindle long-forgotten female friendships amid a battle with her own imagination. Brenda Song, Esther Povitsky and Beth Grant also star in the series, which Hulu renewed for a second season in January 2020 but the COVID-19 pandemic subsequently caused a protracted delay in production”. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/lilly-singh-dollface-season-2-1235019951/

iCarly – The revival has been given a second season at Paramount+. “The new series picks up 10 years after the original show left off, with Carly navigating life as an adult: In the first episode, her boyfriend dumps her, setting her on a new path. The more grown-up tone of the show is established early on, with Carly saying to her roommate, “For you, parties are a never-ending buffet of people who want to sleep with you. Cute guys, hot girls, ridiculously gorgeous non-binary lawyers who get your name tattooed on their thigh.” (Carly’s roommate, Harper, played by Laci Mosley, is bisexual.)”. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/icarly-renew-paramount-plus-miranda-cosgrove-1235020231/

I Love This For You – Starring Vanessa Bayer and based on her own story of overcoming childhood leukaemia, this has been given a full season. “Bayer co-created the series and will executive producer and star in it. Fellow “SNL” alum Molly Shannon will also star, while Cybill Shepherd, who had originally signed on to star opposite Bayer and Shannon, has departed the project. Her role will be recast. Bayer co-created “I Love This For You” with Jeremy Beiler (“Saturday Night Live,” “Inside Amy Schumer”), who will also executive produce. On board to serve as showrunner and executive produce is Jessi Klein (“Inside Amy Schumer,” “Dead to Me”), along with Michael Showalter (“The Big Sick,” “Wet Hot American Summer”). “I Love This For You” stars Bayer as Joanna Gold, a woman looking to shed her past cancer identity and dreaming of becoming a host at a home-shopping channel. Joanna moves away from her parents, falls in love and befriends Jackie (played by Shannon), the star of the home shopping channel run by an eccentric billionaire (the role originally slated for Shepherd). The series also stars Paul James (“Soundtrack”), Ayden Mayeri (“Homecoming”), Matt Rogers (“Haute Dog”) and Punam Patel (“Special”).” https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/vanessa-bayer-showtime-i-love-this-for-you-cybill-shepherd-1235017880/

Mammals – James Corden is making a dramedy with Sally Hawkins that’s written by Spectre co-writer and Britannia co-creator Jez Butterworth. “Amazon has ordered six 30-minute episodes, to co-star Colin Morgan, star of Simon Amstell’s 2018 film Benjamin, Meilia Kreiling (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Henry Lloyd-Hughes (The Inbetweeners) and Samuel Anderson, who appeared alongside Corden in 2006 film The History Boys. Plot details are scarce, but Butterworth, who has also co-written the next Indiana Jones film, hints that it’s about the challenges of marriage. “A good marriage is the most magical thing. In a world of eight billion, you’ve found the one who gets you, ignites your body and soul” he said. “Who allows you to grow and flourish. Who gives you the spark, the confidence to become you. You’re also never going to have sex with anyone else, ever, and then you’re going to die, and be dead forever.”” https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/6448/james-corden-comedy-drama/

Never Mind The Buzzcocks – Will be coming back to our screens with Greg Davies hosting, Noel Fielding and Daisy May Cooper are the team captains, while Jamali Maddix will also be a regular pannelist. Eight episodes have been ordered, at the far too long length of 45 minutes because dragging out panel shows to annoying lengths seems to be popular these days. https://www.comedy.co.uk/tv/news/6451/greg-davies-hosts-never-mind-the-buzzcocks/

The Other Two – Is finally set to return to our screens, though this time will air on HBO Max. “The 10-episode season sees Brooke and Cary (Heléne Yorke and Drew Tarver, respectively) contending with a famous family member once again, but this time, instead of pop star younger brother ChaseDreams (Case Walker), it’s their 53-year-old mother, Pat (Molly Shannon), now the host of a daytime talk show. Ken Marino also stars, while the recurring cast includes Brandon Scott, Gideon Glick, Josh Segarra and Wanda Sykes. Ali Ahn, James Anderson, Justin Bartha, Jordana Brewster, Alessia Cara, Marcia DeBonis, Andrew Keenan-Bolger, Ryan Farrell, Jimmy Fowlie, Noah Galvin, Zosia Mamet, Debi Mazar, Derek Peth, Alison Rich, Tuc Watkins, Bowen Yang and Ian Ziering guest star”. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/outer-banks-trailer-netflix-season-2-1235019337/
