Angela to write and possibly star in call center comedy for TBS


The Office alumna Angela Kinsey has sold semi-autobiographical comedy 1-800 to TBS, I have learned. Kinsey will write 1-800, loosely based on her experiences working at a call center when she was starting out, with an eye toward co-starring as well. The workplace comedy reunites Kinsey with TBS, where she recently recurred on the comedy series Your Family Or Mine. Kinsey also starred on the Hulu original series The Hotwives Of Las Vegas and recurred on Fox’s New Girl. She is repped by UTA, Link and attorney Fred Toczek. – Source

Hamburger Hummus

From Entertainment Weekly:

Shalom, Shamericans! Introducing Hamburger Hummus, a new web series directed by Jay Karas (Workaholics) that satirizes blogging culture and pokes fun at clueless Americans embarrassing themselves in foreign countries.

“Six Americans in Israel; one holy s—show,” the trailer teases. Jillian Bell, Betsy Newman, Paul Welsh, Angela Kinsey, Peter Gardner, and Marque Richardson star as culturally oblivious American bloggers visiting Tel Aviv for a conference. The pilot introduces them with the telling epithets, “The Hot Mess,” “The Teenage Crusader,” “The Techie,” and the trio of “The Mommy Blogger,” “The Paranoid Dad,” and “Their Baby.”

“Their interests across technology, beauty, environmentalism, and shameless one-night stands lead to a bounty of Clark Griswold-like, fish-out-of-water moments,” the series description reads, and episode titles like “Tech Aviv,” “#BlessedDayEver,” and the pilot, “Shalom Shamericans,” deliver on that promise. – Source

Hamburger Hummus launched Tuesday and all episodes are now available at!

Mini ‘Office’ reunion at the Emmys

Even though NBC’s hit comedy The Office ended two years ago, that doesn’t mean the cast isn’t still friends. Also, it isn’t going to keep at least part of the cast away from awards shows. On Sunday, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey reunited at the Emmys. To be clear, they didn’t attend the awards show itself, but they did hit up the after parties and you know Michael Scott was feeling left out. Fischer (aka Pam Halpert née Beesly) and Kinsey (aka Angela Martin) are real-life best friends, unlike their characters on The Office, which they proved on Instagram with all of the adorable photos they shared from the Emmys.

The night before the actual awards show, they hit up some pre-Emmy parties, where they also had some mini-Office reunions. To my fellow Scranton and Dunder Mifflin fans, it’s as glorious as it sounds. If that isn’t enough, on Sunday night they had another Office reunion, which just might make those on Team Jim squirm. That’s right, Fischer met up with David Denman, who played Pam’s former fiancé Roy. Don’t worry, they didn’t look super cozy or anything like that. I’m pretty sure Fischer is still very much dedicated to John Krasinski’s Jim.

With that said, check out all of these adorable pictures and enjoy their #BFFEmmyParties fun. – Source


‘The Hotwives of Las Vegas’ cast reveals favorite ‘Real Housewives’ role models

The stars of the satirical Hulu series “The Hotwives of Las Vegas” have revealed the “Real Housewives” on which they based their portrayals.

And one is a shocker – that, gasp, one of the “Hotwives” stars doesn’t watch any “Real Housewives” shows.

Can you imagine?

“Hotwives” launches its second season Aug. 18 on Hulu, which will release a new episode every week.

As part of the drumroll, each actress told TV writers which of Bravo’s many “real housewives” she is aiming to capture.

Casey Wilson (Tawny): “I was kind of a mix this season, Kim Zolciak (‘Atlanta’), maybe some Kenya Moore thrown in with a dash of Phaedra (‘Atlanta’) and Tamra Barney (‘OC’).”

Dannah Feinglass Phirman (Leona): “She’s based on Caroline Manzo from ‘New Jersey.’ Yeah, that’s pretty much what I was going for.”

Danielle Schneider (Shauna): “I kind of had a conglomerate of people. I was going for Shannon from ‘OC,’ who is just a little bird trying to keep up. And then there’s Taylor from ‘Beverly Hills.’ A lot of damaged, damaged ladies.”

Tymberlee Hill: (Phe Phe): “Mine was a mix, too. There was NeNe Leakes (‘Atlanta’) and I threw some Phaedra in there. I also had a big dose of Wendy Williams, who is not a housewife, but is an honorary housewife for all of the traffic she has brought through her show.”

Angela Savage (Veronica): “Yolanda Foster (‘Beverly Hills’) is the launching-off point for my character.”

Erinn Hayes (Callie, new this season, replacing Kristen Schaal’s Amanda): “My character is based on Carlton, from ‘Beverly Hills,’ who is a Wiccan.”

Angela Kinsey: (Crystal): Okay, I don’t watch ‘The Real Housewives.’ So I just tried to be someone who was really important about nothing.”

Watch ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’

While you wait for ‘The Hotwives of Las Vegas’ to come out on August 18, why not go back and watch Angela on the first season of Hulu’s Real Housewives parody, ‘The Hotwives of Orlando’?

A parody of one of the most popular franchises in reality television, “The Hotwives of Orlando,” takes you inside the uber-exclusive and glamorous world of six hot housewives livin’ large in Central Florida’s sexiest city, Orlando. The show follows a cast of ladies as they fight over pretty much everything except for their love of shoes, plastic surgery, and the pursuit of spending all of their husbands’ money.


The Office’s Dwight and Angela had lunch together, and now we celebrate

Jim and Pam might be The Office’s most iconic couple, but Dwight and Angela will forever be the weirdest. Two years after the series finale, stars Rainn Wilson and Angela Kinsey are still good friends, though Wilson looks a lot different than his Dwight days. The two met for lunch this week, and he was sporting a beard that, in his words, is “literally bigger” than Kinsey’s body. If you still miss The Office, you’re going to love the pictures. Take a look!
