Jenny Slate Covers Bust Magazine and Discusses New FX Pilot

28 Jul

The last four Bust covers have featured TV Ate My Wardrobe faves Gillian JacobsAbbi Jacobson and Ilana Glazer, Ellie Kemper and most recently, Laverne Cox. This is a lot of excellent TV ladies and it feels like the editorial department at Bust are pretty much reaching into my brain at this point. Especially when factoring in the new Fall Preview cover star; the incredible and amazing Jenny Slate.

IMG_1774When it was announced that FX was shooting a pilot with the team that delivered the devastating, heart smooshing and hilarious Obvious Child I declared it my new favorite show and then they cast Ari Graynor opposite Slate pretty much guaranteeing this title.

In the new issue of Bust (available on both digital and physical newsstands) Slate discusses this still untitled show saying “It’s just the pilot so maybe no one will ever see it, but I have really high hopes.” Me too Jenny. Me too. A show about “friend love” and “female partnerships” instantly aroused my attention and as a woman in her early 30s this part of Slate’s description really resonates with me:

“There are a lot of shows about women in their early-and-mid 20s trying to figure it out and be wild. That’s wonderful, but I think for more small-minded people, they start to think of that as the ‘authentic woman’ – the woman with no boundaries, who will pee in front of other women – and it just becomes over-simplified. That’s just not enough. I’m not that woman anymore. Gillian [Robespierre] and Liz [Holm] aren’t that woman. We’re all older now. What about the examination of a woman who is in her early 30s who is having some success and starting to understand what she wants out of a partnership romantically and sexually. Is a woman who suddenly has a little bit more power not worth a look? Is she passed over or done? I am a 33-year old woman. I am married and have a nice momentum in my career and I find that I am faced with more questions than ever before. I just approach them differently, with new wisdom.”

It is a long quote, but a really interesting discussion point because while shows like The Mindy Project and New Girl explore a lot of these aspects there is always room for different takes. Plus both those shows are very much a single-cam network formula (it will be interesting to see how/if Mindy changes now it is on Hulu) and have different restrictions. I know You’re the Worst is being paired with The League when it returns September 9, but now I want to see a comedy block of Slate’s new show and You’re the Worst.

The rest of the interview is just as great with Slate discussing her long friendship with Gabe Liedman, plans for Marcel the Shell and her journey to becoming a comedy queen. The editorial covers summertime fashion with jorts and gingham rompers, sliding into fall with a really fabulous 70s inspired Chloe jumpsuit.

An accurate representation of how excited I am for this show. Don’t let me down FX.

Behind the Insta-Scenes: Photos from the Set

8 Jul

Plenty of away from set photos this week with Independence Day celebrations including a whole lot of swimwear, inflatable animal floats and sunshine. Reunions aplenty and Magic Mike XXL outings are also on the cards so dive in to our Instagram highlights.

Last one…!

A post shared by Diane Kruger (@dianekruger) on

 

Rivaling Taylor Swift for most fun on a swan (or rather a flamingo) float and we’re sounding the adorable couple klaxon for Diane Kruger and a beardy Joshua Jackson.

 

January Jones was also at Diane Kruger’s to celebrate the holiday weekend and Kruger shows off her excellent hosting talents with plenty of July 4th themed treats, an excellent way to use a watermelon and listening skills so good they make the hashtag.

Happy #Merica day mañana

A post shared by January Jones (@januaryjones) on

 

Wearing very patriotic looking swimwear and the Jones/Kruger Instagram crossover is quite possibly my new favorite. And for breakup texts look no further than January Jones’ post holiday upload.

 

Parks and Rec reunion happiness. These super sunny photos mean plenty of excellent sunglasses.

 

Unicorn float (well it looks like a unicorn sans the vital horn) for Serayah and Taylor Swift with more excellent swimwear to behold.

 

The Taylor 4th party is a well documented extravaganza and this shot looks like it could be straight out of a Tommy Hilfiger or Ralph Lauren lookbook. Also prompting me to ask the forever question – is there someone who is employed by Swift as the official Insta photographer?

 

Balcony barbecue for Jessica Williams in a super laid back outfit which I am coveting.

PUSHING DAISIES REUNION

A post shared by @ bryanfullergram on

 

Now this is one reunion I would like to see translated into a Pushing Daisies return to TV in whatever capacity (pretty much alternating between this and Wonderfalls for bedtime watching at the moment). Nice beards boys.

 

I love everything about Gabe Liedman’s Urkel tee story and it should definitely be hung on a wall.

 

Does this mean we can expect to see Matt McGorry on the You’re the Worst Sunday Funday sequel or are they just having a Sunday Funday of their own? Another excellent dress from Kether Donohue.

 

Broad City has found a new home on UK TV and will be airing on 4 Music. Abi and Ilana are excited about this and so am I.

 

Perfect Magic Mike XXL viewing girl squad vibes.

 

Ending things this week on sleepy prettiness from Jussie Smollett on the set of Empire.
