Madam Secretary, Ep. 1.12-17 builds on good stories with a great cast

23 March 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Madam Secretary, Season 1, Episodes 12-17

Created by Barbara Hall

Airs Sundays at 8pm (Et) on CBS

Madam Secretary‘s first season has been built on the backbone of the mysterious murder of the former Secretary of State and the question of what he was involved in that would cause him to be murdered. The answers have been coming in slowly throughout the season, as Elizabeth McCord’s list of suspects are cut shorter and shorter. One of the main suspects that McCord had under investigation in the first half of the season was White House Chief of Staff Russell Jackson, whom she confronted with her suspicions in the mid season finale “Game On”, concluding that arc in away that fell in line with the tone of the series.

The show’s return has seen Russell Jackson brought into the loop, but not the President himself, as they all agree not »

Movistar Series Galvanizes U.S. TV Buys in Spain

10 March 2015 4:20 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madrid –Giant Spanish telco Telefonica’s pay TV operator Movistar TV is making one of Spain’s highest-profile drives into U.S. TV content in the last 20 years, creaming dozens of high-quality TV series for its nre Svod service Movistar Series.

Latest announced deals take in CBS, HBO, Sony Pictures TV and ABC. More will follow. Launching Dec. 10, Ms currently offers 45 series. It aims to raise that number to 70 at least.

Telefonica launched a pay TV operator, Iptv service Imagenio, in Madrid and Barcelona in 2004. But it traditionally played second fiddle to the dominant pricey premium pay TV service Canal Plus Spain.

That has now changed. From 2013, Telefonica begun to load up on premium contents: the Roland Garros tennis tourney, Formula One, the Road Racing World Championship and then bought Canal Plus Spain outright in a $1.0 billion May 2014 deal which still has to be cleared by Spain’s anti-trust authorities. »

If you haven’t been able to catch an episode of CBS’ The Odd Couple reboot yet, fret not: The network uses many of the same elements in its newest procedural crime drama, Battle Creek, which debuted Sunday.

Smith to Have One of His Worst Domestic Openings Ever: 'Focus'

1 March 2015 1:58 AM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

'Focus' movie: Will Smith has third weakest weekend box-office debut of his career (photo: Will Smith in 'Focus') According to those referred to in polite society as "conservatives," winter storms and freezing temperatures are evidence that there's no such thing as global warming. Let's not even go there. Instead, let's focus (bad pun intended) on the Focus movie starring Will Smith and Margot Robbie as a con couple, which opened below expectations – with wintery weather as a possible culprit – in North America this weekend, February 27-March 1, 2015. According to box-office tracking, as late as a couple of days ago Warner Bros.' modestly budgeted Focus was expected to take in between $22-24 million. Barring a miracle akin to a sudden halt to rising ocean temperatures (pardon the hyperbole), that's not about to happen. Now, before I proceed: "modestly budgeted"? Well, for a Will Smith movie, $50 million – after »

28 February 2015 3:37 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Madam Secretary‘s Elizabeth McCord is always one cool politico, no matter what tricky feat of international diplomacy is demanded of her. But those behind the scenes of CBS’ Sunday-night drama admit that its Season 2 pickup last month provided a welcome respite from the nerve-racking renwal waiting game.

“It was a big relief to get it early,” executive producer Lori McCreary says with a laugh.

“Huge,” chimes in fellow Ep Barbara Hall.

PopPolitics: How ‘Madam Secretary’ Became an Antidote to Dark D.C. Dramas (Listen)

28 February 2015 1:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Madam Secretary,” which returns on Sunday on CBS after a brief hiatus, has made a mark for what it isn’t — a tick-tock thriller or dark serialized drama that is part of the current wave of D.C.-set shows.

The show stars Tea Leoni as a CIA analyst who is unexpectedly nominated to the top role at the State Department.

Executive producers Barbara Hall and Lori McCreary tell Variety‘s “PopPolitics” on SiriusXM that the show avoids polarization — even though it has featured very-close-to-reality storylines about negotiations over Iran’s nuclear capabilities and the standoff over the Texas border with Mexico.

“Certainly there is an aspirational aspect to the show that this is the way we would like to think the way things could be resolved, because we do want to stay within the realm of reality and we do want to invite people into the process,” Hall says. »

Tea Leoni Talks Aging in Hollywood, Says Sometimes She Wants To "Throttle" David Duchovny!

24 February 2015 2:45 PM, PST | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

Tea Leoni's stronger than ever these days! The actress covers the March issue of More magazine, where she opens up about aging in Hollywood, her relationship with ex David Duchovny and learning to let go of her "fears." While we think the 48-year-old looks amazing, Tea says she's struggled with the idea of getting older ... especially when it comes to her career. "[Brett] Ratner (her director on the 2000 film 'The Family Man')—whom I really like, by the way—was going around telling people that despite my age, I was ‘still doable.’ I think I was 34 then. And he was something like 28. I asked myself, 'Do I still care about that?' And at that time, I did. I felt that pressure to be 'doable.' It was the meanest thought I’d had for myself in a long time," she tells the mag. Today, the blonde beauty »

Téa Leoni looks radiant and fresh on More magazine's March cover, but the 48-year-old Madam Secretary star is the first to admit she used to worry far too much about getting older.

"It's not like I'm thrilled to turn around and catch my can in the mirror, but I can see now how much of my happiness could be a victim of trying to stay young and desirable. And it feels like peace and victory to be relieved of that burden." The mother of two describes her marital status as "divorced and liking it, thank you." But »
