Anna Gunn, Samantha Mathis, Alex Karpovsky, and Logan Miller have joined Jim Gaffigan in Miranda Bailey’s upcoming comedy “You Can Choose Your Family.”

Friday, May 12

Master of None” Season 2, Netflix

Episode Title: Season 2 (10 episodes)

Network Synopsis: Best known for his role on the award-winning series “Parks and Recreation,” comedian Aziz Ansari stars, writes, and directs “Master of None,” a new Netflix original comedy series loosely based on his own life experiences. “Master of None” follows the personal and professional lives of Dev, a 30-year-old actor in New York who has trouble deciding what he wants to eat, much less the pathway for the rest of his life. Ambitious, funny, cinematic, and both sweeping in scope and intensely personal, Dev’s story takes him through subjects as diverse as the plight of the elderly, the immigrant experience, and how to find the most delicious pasta for dinner.

Why You Should Watch: “Master of None” is more confident in its second season, focusing its cinematic influences and inventive narrative structuring into a moving personal story. »

Martin Scorsese says The Irishman will be tonally different from Goodfellas

11 May 2017 6:03 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas is one of the few movies which I make a point of watching each and every year. It's a truly excellent crime drama filled with utterly fantastic performances from Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta and Joe Pesci, but I'm sure I don't need to tell you that. It would be a tall order to follow up that film, but Martin Scorsese told The... Read More »

The Story of How Shades of Blue Became a Television Show

8 May 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Jennifer Lopez shines bright in her action packed role as Santos on the recent series “Shades of Blue.” Complimented by co-star Ray Liotta who adds a load of corruption and intense drama, the series is gaining in popularity in the cop show genre. There is an interesting story behind the development of the television series. We believe that readers will have a greater appreciation after hearing how writer Adi Hasak developed and marketed his masterpiece. An unlikely television script writer Hasak was born to Russian Jewish parents in Holland. He moved to the United States long enough to finish his

Film Feature: HollywoodChicago.com Remembers Jonathan Demme

2 May 2017 6:50 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – The impact that director Jonathan Demme had on the last couple generations of cinema will live beyond his passing last week, at the age of 73. The Oscar-winning filmmaker also made an impact with the film writers of HollywoodChicago.com – Jon Espino, Patrick McDonald and Spike Walters.

The director was described as “the last of the great humanists” in the HollywoodChicago.com obituary, and followed through on that description with an incredible run of films in the 1980s and ‘90s, which included “Melvin and Howard” (1980), “Something Wild” (1986), “Swimming to Cambodia” (1987), “Married to the Mob” (1988), “The Silence of the Lambs” (1991) and “Philadelphia” (1993). He also created one of the greatest rock documentaries ever, “Stop Making Sense” (1984, featuring the Talking Heads) and worked extensively with Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young on other rock docs.

How Will Film Critics Remember Jonathan Demme? — Critics Survey

27 April 2017 11:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can typically be found at the end of this post.) This week, however, in light of Jonathan Demme’s death — and in reaction to the immense outpouring of love for the man and his movies that followed the news of his passing — we’ve decided to switch things up with a special mid-week edition of our usual survey. 

We asked our panel one simple question: How will you remember Jonathan Demme? The responses we received can be found below.

Jonathan Demme Appreciation: A Filmmaker Who Turned His Humanity Into Art

26 April 2017 2:25 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The great filmmakers who came to prominence in the 1970s — and Jonathan Demme, who died Wednesday, was one of them — had stylistic traits that made them iconically identifiable. Robert Altman had his multi-character hubbub, Martin Scorsese had his volcanic rock ‘n’ roll virtuosity, and Francis Ford Coppola had his lavishly scaled operatic grandeur. But Demme, vivid and stirring as his filmmaking voice was, had no such obvious signature. You could almost say that he was defined by his lack of signature.

What defined a Demme film was the open-eyed flow of its humanity, the way his camera drank in everyone on screen — it didn’t matter whether the character was a goofy truck driver, a derelict billionaire, the troubled wife of a mobster, a new wave rock ‘n’ roller, or a serial killer — and took the full measure of their life and spirit. For Demme, the magic of movies resided »

Peter Travers on Jonathan Demme: The Movies' Great Humanist

Jonathan Demme, dead of cancer at 73. It's hard to take in those words.

Or to stop feeling the gut punch of his loss. High praise will flow, deservedly, about Demme's virtuosity as a filmmaker; about the Oscars he won for The Silence of the Lambs; about his concert films, from Stop Making Sense to Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids, that brought audiences closer than ever before to the sweaty intimacy and creative pulse of music. His influence is everywhere. Paul Thomas Anderson was once asked for a list of the »

Jonathan Demme, ‘Silence of the Lambs’ Director, Dies at 73

26 April 2017 8:10 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Oscar-winning director Jonathan Demme died Wednesday in New York of cancer complications, his publicist told Variety. He was 73 years old.

Demme is best known for directing “The Silence of the Lambs,” the 1991 horror-thriller that was a box office smash, a critical triumph, and introduced moviegoers to Anthony Hopkins’ Hannibal Lecter, a charismatic serial with a yen for Chianti, fava beans, and cannibalism. The story of a novice FBI analyst (Jodie Foster) on the trail of a murderer became only the third film in history to win Academy Awards in all the top five categories ( picture, actor, actress, director, and adapted screenplay), joining the ranks of “It Happened One Night” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.”

Though he had his greatest success terrifying audiences, most of Demme’s work was looser and quirkier. In particular, he showed a great humanism and an empathy for outsiders in the likes of “Melvin and Howard, »
