Ragtag Productions

Ragtag Productions, the brains behind the awesome webseries We Need Girlfriends, have announced their newest webseries, My Future Girlfriend. An excerpt from the press release:

“MY FUTURE GIRLFRIEND” ANNOUNCEMENT

Ragtag Productions is proud to announce they have begun production on their latest webseries “MY FUTURE GIRLFRIEND.” This five-part mini-movie is described as a “romantic comedy Terminator” and marks the team’s first foray into sci-fi comedy. It follows Clark, a schlubby underachiever, who is visited by Kelly, his girlfriend from five years in the future who tells him that due to a rift in the timeline, she must help him fall in love with the present day version of herself.

Ragtag’s first webseries, “We Need Girlfriends,” gained over one million visitors a month to its official site. It was written about in the New York Times, Huffington Post, Slate, USA Today, Yahoo News, The Guardian Unlimited and numerous other publications, before it was sold to Sony Pictures and CBS as a half-hour pilot script, which is currently in development.

“My Future Girlfriend” will be directed by Brian Amyot based on a script by Steven Tsapelas. It will be produced by Amyot, Tsapelas and Patrick Cohen.

For more information on the series, including the cast (along with photos), click here.

I was a big fan of the Iron Man comic while growing up and thought that the first Iron Man flick was perfect.  Yahoo has posted a new teaser poster for the superhero’s sequel (shown below), and it features fan favorite War Machine!

What do you think? Will your butt be in the theater on May 7th? Are you excited to see War Machine?

TV Tonight 11-30-09

Tonight at 9pm on the CW is an all new episode of Gossip Girl. The episode has a very dysfunctional Thanksgiving dinner where Serena is forced to share thanks with the man’s wife who she is having an affair with.  Also on tonight, and keeping with the Holiday spirit is the classic Christmas toon, How the Grinch Stole Christmas and the modern animated classic, Shrek the Halls. Both specials are on ABC, starting at 8pm.  I love the Holidays and all of the specials and themed episodes that it brings along with it.

What else is on tonight?

8PM

  • ABC: How the Grinch Stole Christmas/Shrek the Halls (Holiday Specials)
  • CW: One Tree Hill (Melodrama)
  • FOX: House (Medical Drama)
  • NBC: Heroes (Sci-Fi Drama)

9PM

  • ABC: Find My Family (Reality)
  • CW: Gossip Girl (Teen Drama)
  • FOX: Lie to Me (Crime Drama)
  • NBC: Trauma (Medical Drama)

10PM

  • Jay Leno Show (Talk/Sketch Comedy)

It will be interesting to see if the ratings for the Jay Leno Show begin to rise as all other shows in its timeslot go on hiatus and it continues to air new episodes.  The next few weeks will really show if this experiment by NBC will work in the long run.

People have already submitted a variety of entires into the contes, including original music videos, videos on boxing and swimming, and general videos that show (and explain) how their lives would improve by having improved vision. You have creative freedom with the video you make. To stand out in contests like these you need to be original and make a splash. To enter the contest, you just have to make a video that fits into one of the above categories, submit the video to the contest website (the link at the top of this article) and get your friends and family to vote for your video.

I’m a big fan of ItsJustSomeRandomGuy’s YouTube superhero spoof series that features toys. I’ve spotlighted them in the past (also here) and have to do so again with their genus Twilight/New Moon spoof using the Joker and Harley Quinn.
