Crazy Fun Trailer for Action Comedy Spy Show Film 'Espionage Tonight'

"We'll send you on missions - and then you guide us through your adventure." The Orchard has launched a trailer for a film titled Espionage Tonight, which we've never heard of before now. This action-comedy satire is about a reality show that is created about spies, following them on real missions and broadcasting it. The ensemble cast includes Joe Hursley, Saïd Taghmaoui, Sean Astin and Lynn Whitfield. The trailer gives a quick introduction to the plot, and then the rest plays out almost like a twisted reality TV show, or something. This actually looks cooler than expected, but perhaps a bit too wacky. Honestly I'm not really sure what to make of it. But I might want to watch it sometime to see if it's any good. Fire it up below. Here's the first official trailer for Rob Gordon Bralver's Espionage Tonight, direct from YouTube: Espionage Tonight centers on

Bralver wrote and directed the film, billed as “an inventive and sly critique of American media culture and politics,” which blends some timely issues around politics, “fake news,” the value of supposedly fact-based entertainment, and good old-fashioned espionage into a very amusing mix.

But there is some real meat here and, as Bralver explained in an official statement, some warnings, too. Said Bralver, “What used to be an intersectional space

Hcff Review: The Origins of Wit and Humor

Charming indie film The Origins of Wit and Humor, which screened earlier this month at the Hill Country Film Festival, appears at first to be a romantic comedy, but ultimately leans heavily on the comedy, as hinted in the title. In fact, you could argue that this movie is a romantic comedy in which humor portrays the femme fatale the protagonist pursues -- the storyline chronicles the repercussions of his entanglements with this demanding love interest.

Les (Joe Hursley) is a comedy writer who's completely devastated when seemingly out of nowhere, his longtime girlfriend moves out. He can't write, he can't function, he has no idea how to approach women, despite encouragement from his best friend Pops (Steve Lemme). On a whim, Les sends off a mail-order form from the back of an old book (with the same title as the film) and receives a "potion" that will allegedly make

Episode Recap: CSI: Crime Scene Investigation - 11.16: "Turn On, Tune In, Drop Dead"

  • PopStar
Ray (Laurence Fishburne) still having to battle his demons with Haskell (Bill Irwin) being on the loose. News reports of Haskell's escape and Ray doesn't want Brass (Paul Guilfoyle) turning off the TV due to him. Brass can't report there have been any sightings of him. Ray explains Haskell isn't any ordinary criminal and so the search for him, that should be manhunt, should also be different. Ray: "Until he makes a mistake, we just satisfy ourselves picking up bodies." Well, like it or not, it's what they do; unfortunately. A man presumed a Db is picked up and brought to autopsy. Before David (David Berman) can cut him open, he gets up and walks out of the morgue. David faints. Lucky for the Db, David got a call otherwise he'd be cut open; but he turns out to be not so luck after all. CSI delving into zombies for the twenty-first century.

‘The Clinic’ Pilot Coming, Trailer Smoking

To say that the trailer for upcoming Calico Arts series The Clinic intrigued me is an understatement. From beginning to end, the trailer is tight, entertaining, fresh, and it had me begging for more. Created by Danny Lee, the series provides a mockumentary look at the people behind one of California's many medical marijuana clinics. This isn't completely fantastical, however; the way Lee describes it, he was inspired by a real club. "One of my friends happened to own a local medicinal marijuana dispensary in Hollywood, so out of pure curiosity I decided to pay a visit. Within 5 minutes, I knew right away this world would provide great material for a series...however, my objective was to make a show about the people who try to make a living there. The owner Marty (played by Joe Hursley) is morally conflicted about his career choice, but does everything he can to justify why he's there,
