Divergent in name but not in trend. Borrowing a page out of successful franchises like Harry Potter and The Hunger Games, Lionsgate announced today that the Divergent trilogies’ final book, Allegiant, will be split into two films.

Pro: Double the Shailene Woodley!

Con: Double the cost.

Pro: Double the fun!

“The storytelling arc and world of the characters lend themselves perfectly to two films, a storytelling strategy that has worked very well for us on the two Twilight Breaking Dawn films and about which we’re tremendously enthusiastic for the two upcoming Mockingjay films of The Hunger Games franchise,” said Lionsgate Motion Picture Group Co-Chairmen Rob Friedman and Patrick Wachsberger in a statement.

NBC Asks Fans For Sitcom Ideas. Here Are 5 They Should Pick Up ASAP!

By Josh Sorokach | 3:10 pm

Do you have an idea for the perfect television sitcom? If so, pitching it has never been easier. NBC announced an exciting new crowd-sourcing comedy initiative yesterday called NBC Comedy Playground, which allows TV fans to directly pitch their show ideas (via video) to a panel of well-known actors and producers including Aziz Ansari, Seth Meyers, Mindy Kaling, and Amy Poehler. Up to 10 finalists will be selected, after which NBC will help each participant create a pilot presentation based on their pitch. Two winners will be selected and have their projects broadcast on NBC.

Sound exciting? NBC’s approach to discovering new talent inspired us to pitch a few ideas of our own. Here are 5 new sitcoms we’d love to see on NBC!

1. Tina Fey and Amy Poehler Buddy Cop Comedy

You don’t need algebra when simple arithmetic will do. Tina Fey + Amy Poehler = Success. Not only do they arguably possess two of the most incisive comedy minds in the entertainment business, they also have tons  of chemistry. Place them together in an odd couple scenario and allow these comedic virtuosos to breathe new life into the cozy “by the book/loose cannon” partnership trope. If a Tina Fey/Amy Poehler buddy cop sitcom were announced today, Twitter would be forced to take a sick day. (Don’t believe us? Just take a look at the buzz surrounding their potential movie reunion.)
