What Makes Brooklyn Laugh

Posted by andre with No Comments

ESQUIRE.COM: This is your first big role in a TV comedy. Are you a funny person?

BROOKLYN DECKER: I’m more one of those people you laugh at and not with. I’m not the one with the jokes, I’m the one who falls on her face going up a flight of steps. I’ve made people laugh my whole life, it’s never been willingly. This was a highly different format for me: having jokes, letting them breathe, and making people laugh at you.

ESQ: What’s your type of humor?

BD: I have a very dirty sense of humor.

ESQ: You do?

BD: Yeah, I like pressing the envelope. I think it’s funny when something bold comes out of someone’s mouth that you’re not expecting, things that catch you off guard. That’s what I really like. I like an English sense of humor: dry, dirty, a little bit off. That’s kind of my taste.

ESQ: One of the first lines that comes out of your character Jules’s mouth is “I had sex for 12 straight hours.” Have you ever known anyone who’s been open about their sex habits like that?

BD: I have a group of friends who are very open in that way. I feel like I’m more of the Andy-Bobby [played by Majandra Delfino and Kevin Connolly] couple in my life. Most of my friends have lived at my house, we talk about everything, there are no boundaries. For me, that’s something people would talk about. But I have personally never known a person to have sex for 12 hours straight, no.

Brooklyn’s Tv show “Friends With Better Lives” gets green light!

Posted by clau with No Comments

We are SO happy about this! It’s been announced today (May 13th) that CBS has chosen Brooklyn’s new sitcom Friends With Better Lives for the Fall season! We don’t know many details yet but we’ll be posting everything as soon as we know.

CBS Picks Up James Van Der Beek’s Friends with Better Lives

CBS has ordered the series Friends with Better Lives, starring James Van Der Beek, Brooklyn Decker and Kevin Connolly, TVGuide.com has learned.

The multi-camera comedy follows a group of thirtysomethings who each think that the other has it better. Dana Klein and Aaron Kaplan will executive-produce, with Klein also writing.

Friends with Better Lives is the eighth series CBS has ordered. Read about CBS’ other series pickups here.

‘Friends With Better Lives’ Gets Series Order At CBS

CBS has given a series order to multi-camera comedy pilot Friends With Better Lives, which I hear CBS topper Les Moonves, who developed Friends back in his Warner Bros. days, had been hailing as a potential new incarnation of the blockbuster NBC comedy. With its setup as a young ensemble, Friends With Better Lives could certainly become a successor to CBS’ departing comedy How I Met Your Mother. Written by Dana Klein and directed by James Burrows, Friends With Better Lives revolves around a group of 30-something friends who each think the other has it better. I hear the series pickup deal came after 48 hours of intense negotiations, spearheaded by executive producer Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment. He is exec producing Friends with Klein for 20th Century Fox TV. The ensemble cast includes James Van Der Beek, Brooklyn Decker, Rick Donald, Kevin Connolly, Zoe Lister Jones, Majandra Delfino. Friends With Better Lives was one of two CBS comedy pilots at the network still in contention. I hear the other, Bad Teacher, is still a possibility for midseason. CBS’ current tally of new comedy series stands at five — Friends and Crazy Ones, We Are Men, The Millers and Mom. That is more than double what CBS ordered on the comedy side last May and the most comedy orders at the network in a long time.
