Crazyhead (Season 1): A hilarious new horror series from the creator of the hit show Misfits, Crazyhead sees two young women from Bristol team up to kick demon butt while simultaneously navigating their own personal lives.

This is the End: How’s this for a comedy pitch: the apocalypse has arrived, and now Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Craig Robinson and Danny McBride (all playing exaggerated versions of themselves, mind you) are stuck together at Franco’s Hollywood home. How long before they turn on each other? Better yet, who will get the biggest piece of the household’s last Milky Way? Hilarious and profane, fans of films like Pineapple Express and Superbad will love This is the End.
