The new comedy series "Worst Week" is about an entertainment magazine editor who repeatedly gets himself into embarrassing and troublesome situations with his fiancée's conservative parents. The pre-screening is part of Danes after Dark’s First-Run Movie Series.
Pamela Malatesta, assistant director of Student Involvement and Leadership, explained that the movies that are shown are "no longer in the theater, but haven’t come out on DVD yet, so it’s the only place students can see the movie at this point." This week’s First-Run Movie is the "Sex and the City" movie. "The event is completely free and we’re expecting a turnout of over 100 students at the PAC," said Malatesta.
Next week CBS will air another pre-screening of a different new show. "The Ex List" will be shown at Danes after Dark on Thursday, Sept. 18, at 8 p.m. in the Terrace Lounge (before the First Run of "The Hulk") and again on Friday, Sept. 19, at 8 p.m. in the PAC Recital Hall.
"The Ex List" is a romantic comedy about a single, successful woman who has an unusual encounter with a psychic. She learns that she has already dated her future husband, and if she doesn’t find him in the next year, she’ll remain alone forever.
Students who come out to watch the pilot episodes can stay for a free movie, directly afterwards. Or they can just be the first to catch a CBS new comedy. The popcorn and entertainment are free, thanks to Danes after Dark.
