Given how beloved “Trainspotting” is for many cinephiles across the country, it’s a bit surprising that Danny Boyle’s long-awaited sequel “T2 Trainspotting” tapped out at the $2.4 million mark at the U.S. box office earlier this year. Reviews may not have been as positive, but you would think the chance to catch up with Renton and the gang after two decades would’ve moved the needle way more than it did.

Exclusive: Watch a heartbreaking deleted scene from T2: Trainspotting

Author: Jon Lyus

When Danny Boyle reunited Ewan McGregor, Ewen Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle for a twenty-years-later catch up with the Trainspotting boys few were prepared for the collision of emotions and expectations. T2: Trainspotting detailed the two decade fallout of the events of the first film, but went to a deep well of confusion and longing. The ghosts of a long-lost past shared space with a difficult present. It was a perfect return.

The recent spate of revivals, rather than reboots, play on the nostalgia inherent in revisiting old friends. What Danny Boyle did with T2 was expand the story beyond the confines of the original. Rather than replaying, he simply picked up the story years later and successfully used the emotional baggage of the intervening years in compelling fashion.

The Top Five Jonny Lee Miller Film Roles of his Career

Jonny Lee Miller is one of those performers whose presence on screen can never be overlooked. Always polished, often with more than a touch of sophistication, the third generation artist who 20 years ago was known as the guy married to Angelina Jolie, has since managed to build a solid fan base entirely in his own right. Despite his archetypal British looks he has proved to be strikingly versatile, inhabiting successfully a range of personas from Sherlock Holmes to heroin addict and anything in between. Here are the top five feats of his illustrious career so far (in no particular

None of CBS’ New Fall Series Are Women-Centric

Yeah, we can’t believe this shit, either: Cush Jumbo and Rose Leslie on “The Good Fight

CBS has unveiled its fall 2017 lineup and, in terms of women-centric programming, it’s a wasteland. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the network is moving forward with eight pilots: four dramas, four comedies. And none of them feature a female protagonist.

Four of the projects are standard CBS-fodder (i.e. procedurals and “The Big Bang Theory”): “Instinct” with Alan Cumming, David Boreanaz-starrer “Seal Team”; “Swat,” starring Shemar Moore and Jay Harrington; “Wisdom of the Crowd,” toplined by Jeremy Piven; and “Big Bang Theory” prequel “Young Sheldon.” The other series are “By the Book,” a comedy about a man (Jay R. Ferguson) who lives his life according to the Bible; Bobby Moynihan-starrer “Me, Myself and I,” which depicts the protagonist at three different phases of his life; and family sitcom “9Jkl” with Mark Feuerstein.

CBS also renewed five of its freshmen series: “Bull,” “Kevin Can Wait,”

“MacGyver,” “Man With a Plan,” and “Superior Donuts.” All of those shows are male-centric and “Superior Donuts” is the only one not toplined by a white dude.

The lack of of women in the schedule might seem egregious, but CBS CEO Les Moonves isn’t particularly concerned. “We do a number of pilots, a lot of them have women in starring roles. There are a lot of women in the schedule,” he told the press at before the CBS upfronts. “The best pilots went at the end of the day and we think our track record is Ok.”

Yeah, it’s not. Women, indeed, were the leads or co-leads on six projects — but CBS decided not to pursue any of them. Among the rejects are Amy Brenneman-starrer “The Get,” “Perfect Citizen” with Kristin Chenoweth, and an untitled Jenny Lumet project starring Sharon Leal.

Driving home his point — and painting himself further into the corner — Moonves referenced the current slate of women-centric projects at CBS. “I don’t think we’ve ever had to apologize for having [Tea Leoni-starrer] ‘Madam Secretary’ and Lucy Liu [of ‘Elementary’] and ‘The Good Fight’ and ‘The Good Wife’ and I think we do fine in that area.”

Yes, Liu is great on “Elementary” — but she is not the star. When push comes to shove, it is Sherlock’s (Jonny Lee Miller) story, not Watson’s (Liu). Second, we’re happy that CBS aired “The Good Fight,” a women-centric, diverse show starring a woman over 40. Good on them, but Moonves shouldn’t pat himself too hard on the back. “The Good Fight” is only available on CBS All Access, a streaming platform with few offerings that costs $5.99 per month. Most viewers aren’t willing to sign up for a streamer in order to watch only one original series, so “Good Fight” shouldn’t be your go-to example to explain why CBS doesn’t hate women. Also, “The Good Wife” isn’t on the air anymore, so it’s time for Moonves and CBS to forfeit their bragging rights on that one.

Even more frustrating? This is the second consecutive year CBS has been called out for its lack of inclusivity — and the second consecutive year they’ve shrugged off the criticism. Matt LeBlanc, Kevin James, Michael Weatherly, and a bevy of other white (and mostly male) leads dominated the network’s fall 2016 schedule. Network president Glenn Geller responded by citing “Madam Secretary,” “Mom” with Allison Janney and Anna Faris, long-running comedy “2 Broke Girls,” and “Doubt” with Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox. He described the 2016 slate as “are more diverse this year than last year” in his defense and concluded, “We are definitely moving in the right direction.”

It’s worth pointing out that both “2 Broke Girls” and “Doubt” have since been cancelled. So much for that argument.

So, it’s time that Moonves realizes that CBS’ fall 2017 lineup isn’t “fine” and the network’s track record is far from “Ok.” If the network truly wants to move “in the right direction,” they should try greenlighting shows — hell, a show s— focused on women. Supporting multiple shows with inclusive casts and women of color in prominent roles would be even better. Because, honestly, no one wants to have this conversation about CBS again in 2018.

None of CBS’ New Fall Series Are Women-Centric was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

CBS Renews ‘Elementary’ and ‘The Amazing Race’

CBS Renews ‘Elementary’ and ‘The Amazing Race’
CBS has given a sixth season renewal to “Elementary” and a 30th season nod to its durable reality franchise “The Amazing Race.”

Elementary,” from CBS Television Studios, has been a workhorse for CBS with multiplatform viewing factored in although viewership is down in its fifth season. The Sherlock Holmes-inspired procedural starring Jonny Lee Miller and Lucy Liu has averaged 7.7 million viewers and 1.2 rating in adults 18-49 this season in Nielsen’s live-plus-seven ratings.

There’s speculation that the show could be a midseason entry next season. This year the show delivered 24 episodes in the Sunday 10 p.m. time slot behind “Madam Secretary.” “Elementary” has also been a success for CBS Television Studios in international markets and through its Svod deal with Hulu, which made its down-to-the-wire renewal something of a surprise.

Robert Doherty created the series and is exec producer and showrunner for Timberman/Beverly Productions.
