Women Leads on TV Decline As Networks Discover White Dudes in Crisis

19 May 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For the broadcast networks this fall, women need not apply. With a few notable exceptions — Kyra Sedgwick (ABC’s “Ten Days in the Valley”), Edie Falco (NBC’s “Law & Order: True Crime – The Menendez Murders”), and Anne Heche (NBC’s “The Brave”) — female leads are few and far between.

Networks announced fewer new shows this year, practicing a little restraint rather than buying too many that wind up as late-season castoffs. However, women-led shows were hit hardest: Of approximately 36 new series, just 11 have a first-billed female. Last year there were 41 new shows, of which 20 had a female lead.

Blame might go to a handful of trends on this year’s schedules: More military-themed dramas led by tough guys, a rise in male-dominated sci-fi and comic book shows, and a TV trend that IndieWire has dubbed “Dude-Life Crisis.”

This year, (mostly white) middle-aged guys at a crossroads are a phenomenon. Jason Ritter »

The 4 Worst New Fall TV Show Titles & How We’d Fix Them

18 May 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that the Big 5 networks have unveiled their new fall shows (with a few midseason offerings thrown in), we can get down to really investing in what we’re going to see this year. But first, let’s address an issue that we’re sure many viewers have when it comes to getting excited about new shows: really awful titles.

What’s in a name? Well, if you ask “Trophy Wife,” everything. The critically acclaimed series didn’t feel like the usual sitcom fare. Its humor was smart, ironic and a little bit daffy, and the performances were delightful and nuanced. Sadly, during its entire 22 episodes, it couldn’t ever escape bubble status, and in the end, really lame marketing tactics was its downfall. The show wasn’t about a trophy wife at all, and in fact, that title undermined its strong, feminist voice. The show never saw a Season »

‘The Good Doctor,’ ‘The Gospel of Kevin,’ ‘Alex, Inc.’: ABC Fall TV Trailers, Ranked and Reviewed

16 May 2017 3:51 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Upfronts trailers are always tricky things. Movie previews have a hard enough time selling a 90-minute movie in two minutes. Convincing people to get excited about an entire season of television is another.

As ABC’s fall lineup hinted at earlier today, it’s a male-heavy new slate of shows, but there’s always more below the surface. We’ve gathered our thoughts on these nine new sneak peeks and ranked them for your perusal.

“Ten Days in the Valley”

Kyra Sedgwick plays Jane, a single mom who’s woken in the middle of the night for an urgent script rewrite, and when she comes back to bed…her daughter…is gone! While the implication that moms will be punished for working hard isn’t ideal, we were ready to forgive anything for the great Kyra Sedgwick. But then, well, the tagline flashed across the screen: “What happens when fiction becomes all too real? »

Diane Keaton loves on-screen kisses!

"It's the best. Quite frankly it doesn't get better than on-screen romance," the 71-year-old actress explained during an appearance on an upcoming episode of BBC America's The Graham Norton Show.

Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick's Nearly 30-Year Romance in Pictures

22 April 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

After 27 years together, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are still going strong. The couple, who first met on the set of their 1988 film Lemon Sky, always look so in love on the red carpet, but their relationship wasn't exactly love at first sight. Even though Kyra thought that her costar was "cocky" at first, Kevin didn't stop pursuing her. In September 1988, the two tied the knot and have since welcomed two children, son Travis and daughter Sosie, who has followed in her parents' acting footsteps with her recent role in 13 Reasons Why. Keep scrolling to see their nearly three-decade-long romance in pictures. RelatedHollywood Couples Who Have Been Together the Longest »

These Photos Are Proof Sosie Bacon Inherited Her Father's Sense of Humor

21 April 2017 7:32 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

While celebrating the premiere of his show I Love Dick on Thursday, Kevin Bacon had a very special date on the red carpet: his daughter, Sosie Bacon. While posing together at the Linwood Dunn Theater in La, the 25-year-old 13 Reasons Why star couldn't help but goof off a little bit in front of photographers, and (as usual) we couldn't help but notice that she's the perfect mix of her superstar parents. Kevin, who shares Sosie with wife of 27 years Kyra Sedgwick, has brought his daughter along to plenty of fun events, from a Knicks game with Norman Reedus to the Golden Globe Awards (where she served as Miss Golden Globe in 2014!). You might as well get used to seeing Sosie around now, because with all of the roles she's been racking up recently, there's probably going to be a lot more of her in all of our futures. »

Proof That Sosie Bacon Is the Perfect Mix of Her Famous Parents

20 April 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Sosie Bacon, the daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, has been slowing building up her acting résumé ever since her dad cast her in her first role in 2005's Loverboy. While she's had a few small parts since then, her career hit a very big high note this year with the recent release of 13 Reasons Why on Netflix. Sosie plays Skye in the show (which sounds like it will probably get picked up for a second season) and absolutely crushed her portrayal of the high school outcast with a good heart. While the 25-year-old is pretty unrecognizable on the show with her dark makeup and various tattoos, she looks so much like her famous parents in everyday life. You know how kids usually take after one of their parents more than the other? Nope, not Sosie. She's equal parts Kevin and Kyra, and it's kinda trippy. RelatedKevin Bacon Teaches »

Why Trump and a Slew of Celebs Have Their Eyes on a Democrat Rookie Running for Congress Near Atlanta

18 April 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

All eyes — including the president’s — are on the Atlanta suburbs on Tuesday as voters cast their ballots in a special election to determine who will represent Georgia’s 6th Congressional District.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to urge Republicans to “get out today and Vote” against Democratic candidate Jon Ossoff, the 30-year-old former congressional aide running for the House seat vacated earlier this year when Tom Price became Trump’s secretary of health and human services.

“Democrat Jon Ossoff would be a disaster in Congress,” Trump tweeted. “Very weak on crime and illegal immigration, bad »
