4 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s that time of year again: Emmy season is upon us, and Variety’s coverage will begin in earnest in next week’s issue. But before we kick off a brand new race for TV’s top trophy, we’re taking a look at nine key categories and breaking down which of last year’s nominees are in and out of the race, who might stage a dramatic return and what newcomers have already made an impact on the kudos landscape.

Vasya Kolotusha for Variety

What’s out: HBO’s “Game of Thrones” won’t return until the summer, ensuring a new winner will be crowned this year. And PBS’ “Downton Abbey” closed its doors last year.

The Devil's in the Details: Close-Up on Guillermo Del Toro's "Hellboy"

19 May 2017 12:20 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a column that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Guillermo Del Toro's Hellboy (2004) is showing on Mubi from May 14 - June 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom.It is hard to imagine a more perfect marriage of director and source material than Guillermo Del Toro with Hellboy. Mike Mignola’s graphic novel series about a demon put to work by the Feds could have been tailor-made for the Mexican fantasy auteur. Hellboy’s panels pit brutish monsters against mad visionaries in dank subterranean crypts, drawing on European folklore and making a fetish of clanking machinery, crumbling ruins and otherworldly magic. Mignola’s primary theme is always the past’s unshakeable hold over the present, the dead’s habit of returning to haunt the living. All of the above are the sort of gothic tropes that have recurred again and again in some form or other throughout Del Toro’s filmography too, »

‘Portlandia’ Star Carrie Brownstein to Direct ‘Fairy Godmother’ Movie for MGM

18 May 2017 4:28 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

MGM has tapped Carrie Brownstein, the “Portlandia” co-creator and star, to direct its fantasy comedy “Fairy Godmother.”

The project was set up in October at MGM, which won a bidding war for Chiara Atik’s script about a fairy godmother hired by a teenage client to find her true love with a prince. Complications ensue when the prince starts falling for the fairy godmother instead.

Helen Estabrook, whose credits include “Whiplash,” is producing and MGM’s Cassidy Lange is overseeing the project for the studio. Brownstein has directed segments of “Portlandia” and Hulu’s “Casual.”

Brownstein, Fred Armisen, and Jonathan Krisel created the satirical series “Portlandia,” which debuted on IFC in 2011. The show stars Brownstein and Armisen, and won a Peabody Award and an Emmy and completed its seventh season in March.

The trio all serve as executive producers, writers, and directors. “Saturday Night Live” creator Lorne Michaels also executive produces. »

Newswire: Jeffrey Tambor would like to remind you that he’s not “the guy from Ghost”

17 May 2017 5:04 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Jeffrey Tambor is a fantastically prolific actor, appearing in everything from Hill Street Blues to Star Vs. The Forces Of Evil, with a ton of rightly celebrated comedic and dramatic performances in between. One cinematic milestone he was not in, however, was Ghost, as he was forced to remind Ryan Seacrest this week during an appearance on Live With Kelly And Ryan.

Now, given the fact that Tambor mentions that people frequently confuse him with the late Vincent Schiavelli—who played the terrifying Subway Ghost in the aforementioned Patrick Swayze flick—in his new book, and the fact that Seacrest seemed to have a question about the confusion prepped and on-hand, it seems pretty likely that the host’s “flub” was less than genuine. That being said, Tambor’s reaction seems perfectly real, quickly switching into a smirking, pitying faux-anger at Seacrest that’s a lot of fun to behold »

Ryan Seacrest Confuses Jeffrey Tambor for Dead Actor in ‘Ghost’

17 May 2017 4:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ryan Seacrest had an awkward moment with actor Jeffrey Tambor on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” Wednesday when he mistook Tambor for the late “Ghost” actor Vincent Schiavelli.

Seacrest referred to Tambor’s roles on “The Larry Sanders Show,” “Arrested Development,” and “Transparent” as “unforgettable” while introducing his guest to the audience, and then went on to recount his fond memory of watching Tambor in “Ghost” as a child. Tambor, however, never appeared in the film.

“We talked about the things you have done and are doing, but to me, you’re the scary guy on the subway in ‘Ghost,'” Seacrest admitted.

Tambor took the error in stride and drew out his reaction for comedic effect.

“Oh, this is horrible,” he said in his signature bass. “You’re gonna be embarrassed. That’s not me. He’s dead.”

Seacrest and co-host Kelly Ripa tried to play along with the mistake, with »

The Bluths Are Back! Season 5 Of Arrested Development Is Officially Confirmed

17 May 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s officially time to fire up the stair-car, as Netflix and Imagine Entertainment finally concede that to leave the Bluth family on the shelf for much longer would be a huge mistake. The award-winning Arrested Development – which cultivated a devoted audience during its original run from 2004 to 2006 – was resurrected by Netflix back in 2013 as part of the earliest days of the streaming channel’s push into original programming. Now, the company is honouring a continued commitment to the show because, as Michael Bluth (Jason Bateman) always says, the most important thing is family.

Arrested Development was always ahead of its time – featuring, back in 2003, the patriarch of a prominent and renowned building-empire family being prosecuted for fraud and some “light treason.” The 2013 fourth season saw that patriarch – played by Golden Globe winner Jeffrey Tambor – propose the building of a wall between Mexico and the United States, and the rest »

Arrested Development Season 5 Officially Happening

17 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Variety is reporting that the dysfunctional Bluth family will return for a fifth season of Arrested Development. After many rumors and delays the fifth season is finally official. Series creator Mitchell Hurwitz, who will executive produce, is returning along with the shows full cast.

“In talks with Netflix we all felt that that stories about a narcissistic, erratically behaving family in the building business — and their desperate abuses of power — are really underrepresented on TV these days,” said Hurwitz on Wednesday.

On the other side of that conversation, chief content officer for Netflix, Ted Sarandos said, “Arrested Development brings us structures, outerwear and choreography like no other comedy in history.”

While expectations on the fourth season were insanely high due to the series having produced some of the smartest and most well written episodes of any show within the last few decades, the new season was met with mixed feelings from fans. »
