There was waffle wedding cake. A friendly pit bull. Place-settings adorned with the silhouette of Lil Sebastian (RIP). A cool jazz club. A menu that contained Chicky Chicky Parm-Parm, steak and a big ol’ cookie. This Parks and Rec themed wedding had everything a Pawnee resident would expect at such a magical ceremony (warning, the post from Buzzfeed contains some explicit language). The “wedding” was the work of a photography duo from Michigan who collaborates with local caterers and vendors to stage a wedding for the purpose of showcasing their work. Each year, they choose a new theme for the faux-ceremony, and this time, they made the obvious choice: The union of Leslie and Ben. Almost everything used in the fake wedding was a nod to their favorite show—including the wardrobe choices, distinguished guest (including FBI agent Burt Macklin and the mysterious Janet Snakehole) and show references on all of the invitations. Sure, no one was actually married at the Parks and Rec wedding, but we can only hope that the photo shoot will serve as inspiration for a real couple to make this dream a reality ... Discuss

If you watch the zombie action series The Walking Dead, you may have noticed that during a scene in a church sanctuary in this week’s episode, instead of hymn numbers (as Uproxx, who posted the image below, notes) posted on a board at the front of the room, there was what appeared to be Bible verse references. The makers of the AMC series are known for their attention to small details and hidden Easter eggs, so it didn’t take long for viewers to start investigating. An observant Redditor posted the evidence, and found that all of the verses displayed (Romans 6:4, Ezekiel 37:7, Matthew 27:52, Revelation 9:6, Luke 24:5) had one thing in common: They each talk about the dead rising ...

As Parks & Rec gets ready to bow out of its delightful run, its stars are gearing up for other projects. Long careers seem assured for the likes of Chris Pratt, Aziz Ansari Aubrey Plaza, Rashida Jones, Nick Offerman and Adam Scott, but what of beloved team leader Amy Poehler? Well, it turns out she'll be re-teaming with Parks & Rec executive producer and staff writer Aisha Muharrar to write a new single-cam comedy for NBC, and the premise is one that might interest you. It will center around a young, agnostic woman who inherits a church building and a bevy of wild and wacky congregants. It's being described as "a work-place comedy" so it will probably be tonally similar to Parks & Rec, but word is, Poehler will be writing, not starring in the series. So you might want to get working on that audition tape, dear reader ... Discuss

25 years in, the Simpsons are casting a long shadow Read More

Today is a big day for fans of The Simpsons. A year after purchasing the rights to the classic animated franchise, the cable network FX is finally launching the all-encompassing Simpsons World app. The good news is it’s made to be used on almost all of your devices. The bad news is it’s only available to authenticated cable subscribers and there are also ads (Doh!).

Along with all 500+ episodes of the series, the app is essentially made to convert any casual fan into a full-fledge Simpsons nerd by giving them access to tons of extra features like custom playlists, a Simpson-centric newsfeed, crazy specific search capabilities, behind the scenes content and more. As Simpsons producer Al Jean told USA Today, "Hello Simpsons World, goodbye free time! Seriously” ... Discuss

NBC wants to bring one of the U.K.’s most popular sitcoms to U.S. audiences. Producer Bill Lawrence—the guy behind an upcoming Rush Hour TV series—is working with NBC to produce an American version of the acclaimed British workplace comedy The IT Crowd. Remaking a beloved show isn’t easy (though it worked for The Office), but Lawrence is working with the writing team of Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan (who’ve worked on shows including Community, Scrubs and Family Guy) to see if they can bring the concept new life in the U.S. Weirdly, it’s not the first time NBC has tried to remake the show. Back in 2006, they actually produced a version starring a pre-Community Joel McHale they never ended up airing ... Discuss
