This season saw the premiere of Shades of Blue and the rise of Quantico, two of the latest dramas to feature strong female detectives. And while your average, real-life female cop or detective probably doesn't look like Jennifer Lopez, the average law enforcement woman on television does. Who's the sexiest?
Is it Mariska Hargitay on Law & Order: Svu, Gillian Anderson on The X-Files, or Jaina Lee Ortiz on Fox's new drama Rosewood? What about the classics? Kyra Sedgwick on The Closer, Kathryn Morris on Cold Case or Heather Locklear on Tj Hooker?

After five nominations for playing Sheila Jackson on “Shameless,” Joan Cusack finally took home the guest actress prize last year. And just in time — she didn’t appear in the show’s most recent season.
That opens the cateogry to a whole new winner, and it might just be someone who will be doubling up on noms this year. Ellen Burstyn [“Mom”] is also a potential nominee for her work on the drama “House of Cards,” as is Carrie Fisher [“Catastrophe”] for “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Tovah Feldshuh stole the show with her “Where’s the Bathroom” number in “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but could also score a nod on the drama side for her guest work on ‘The Walking Dead.”
Natasha Lyonne [“Portlandia”] did standout work on “Orange Is the New Black,” where her character is sorely missed. Cynthia Nixon [“Broad City”] and Judy Greer [“Mom”] are other actresses pulling double duty on the comedy and drama sides. »

Stx sources confirmed to Screendaily that the project is not the mob film Scarpa, which Stallone has been shopping around.
“I’ve joined their family,” Stallone told attendees at the Colosseum. “We have an incredible film coming up. I’m not going to give you the name right now because I don’t want you to all go crazy.”
The appearance of Stallone, who thanked attendees for their support of 2015 hit Creed, was one of several high-profile talent to take the stage in a pure statement of intent by Bob Simonds’ fledgling studio.
They explained that the studio was well capitalised, backed by Tpg »

Las Vegas — Stx Entertainment motion picture chairman Adam Fogelson reiterated the 18-month-old distributor’s mission statement at CinemaCon to release “moderately and appropriately priced films made for adults.” The batch of content on display Tuesday appeared to make good on that promise, featuring a wide array of genres and storytelling for the company’s first-ever presentation at the annual movie exhibitors trade show.
Beginning with what could be an awards season player, the studio revealed a scene from Gary Ross’ upcoming Civil War drama “Free State of Jones.” Oscar-winning actor Matthew McConaughey stars in the film as Newton Knight, a little-known historical figure who led a band of Confederate deserters.
Though Stx has released four films to date (“The Gift,” “The Boy,” “Secret in Their Eyes” and “Hardcore Henry”), “Free State” was the first project greenlit by the company. And Ross has been eager to make it for a decade, »

The Road Within, 2016.
Directed by Gren Wells.
After his mother passes away, Vincent (Robert Sheehan) is sent to an experimental treatment centre for his Tourette’s. While there, he befriends an anorexic girl called Marie (Zoë Kravitz) and together, the two steal a car to escape. As they leave, the pair are confronted by an Ocd patient called Alex (Dev Patel) who joins them on a painful journey of self-discovery.
The first few minutes of The Road Within are a nightmare for politically correct audiences. Opening with the funeral of Vincent’s recently deceased mother, we sit and watch as he struggles to control his Tourette’s during the sermon. Vincent’s condition is clearly making the other attendees uncomfortable, including his own father (Robert Patrick), and as his physical tics and vocal outbursts worsen, things escalate »
