Paris — French mini-major Gaumont has poached former Snd exec Alexis Cassanet to co-head the company’s international sales team alongside Adeline Falampin.

Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Her Fifth ‘Veep’ Emmy: IndieWire’s Emmys Endorsements (Comedy)

Comedy Series

Black-ish

Master of None

Modern Family

Silicon Valley

Transparent

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Veep

IndieWire’s Vote: “Veep

It hurts us to think “Transparent” and “Master of None” may never get a turn at the table, especially this year after both delivered such stellar seasons: Jill Soloway’s follow-up far surpassed her already impressive first season, and Aziz Ansari’s Netflix debut showed just how diversity in front of and behind the camera can benefit our culture (not to mention how smart, insightful writing can still appeal to mainstream audiences). But David Mandel pulled off an equally impressive feat by matching (if not besting) “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci’s Emmy-winning prior season, stepping into massive shoes and running a six-minute mile without tripping. The best comedy, nay, the best series on TV remains the one to beat this Emmys season. All hail the queen.

Emmy Predictions 2016: Production and Costume Design Races Reflect Cultural Upheaval

12 August 2016 1:48 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“The Times They Are a Changin'” pretty well sums up this year’s Emmy craft contenders for production and costume design. The series all deal with social, political and cultural upheaval, which provided creative opportunities in designing and dressing characters on the cusp of change.

Production Design

In the race for production design (fantasy or contemporary), Amazon’s adaptation of Philip K.Dick’s “The Man in the High Castle” is building buzz for its retro-future vision, in which the Nazis and Japanese won World War II.

For production designer Drew Boughton, that meant three distinct looks for New York City (run by the Nazis), San Francisco (occupied by the Japanese) and Canon City, Colorado (the neutral zone). New York offered an austere, concrete, gray vibe reminiscent of the Eastern block, San Francisco went more wood and aqua blue and Canon City was rural, like a Western.

Emmy Lead Actor Race Analysis: Jeffrey Tambor vs. Anthony Anderson

12 August 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year there was no question. Jeffrey Tambor was destined to win his first Emmy (in a remarkable TV career that includes “The Larry Sanders Show” and “Arrested Development”) for his transformative performance as Maura Pfefferman on Amazon’s freshman sensation “Transparent.” This year, there’s a decent chance he’ll repeat. But the outstanding lead actor in a comedy series race doesn’t feel nearly as cut and dried. Five formidable competitors stand in his way, each with his own strong case for a win. Just don’t be surprised if it boils down to a battle royale between the Pfefferman family matriarch and Anthony Anderson’s Johnson family patriarch.

The Odds

Given Emmy’s fondness for repeat winners, and the continued excellence of his performance, Tambor remains the safe bet by a mile. But there’s always the chance that someone sneaks in for an upset, and the field is full of rich possibilities. If »

21 Reasons Comedy Is Great on TV

11 August 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series Anthony Anderson, “Black-ish”Anderson has remained bracingly consistent as a father of four trying to maintain career, family, and his kids’ sense of blackness in the lily-white surroundings of upper-middle-class suburbia. Plus, in facing tough issues like police brutality, the actor proves himself as adept at drama as he is at comedy. Aziz Ansari, “Master of None”Audiences laugh at Dev—mostly at his expense—as he navigates love in the modern age and working as an actor of Indian descent in whitewashed Hollywood. As portrayed by Ansari, the series’ creator, Dev and his exploits feel remarkably familiar, relatable, honest. Bonus: Ansari’s Emmy nomination means we might get to see what he’s been reading since picking up a copy of “Losing to Jeffrey Tambor With Dignity” at the Golden Globes.

Supporting Actor Emmy Nominations Offer Breakthroughs for New and Longtime Roles

9 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Every year there’s talk about the need for new blood. But this was the year Emmy voters did something about it, and there were several notable breakthroughs in the supporting race. Riding the “Game of Thrones” wave, Maisie Williams and Kit Harington scored their first noms after six seasons. Meanwhile Matt Walsh was recognized in season five, and Maura Tierney and Judith Light landed noms in their sophomore seasons. Louie Anderson and Constance Zimmer were nominated for the first time for new roles, in shows that — compared to “Game of Thrones” — had pretty low profiles.

After winning a Golden Globe in January for “The Affair,” in which she plays a woman divorcing her cheating husband, Tierney was a welcome Emmy breakthrough this year. She was last Emmy-nominated back in 2001 for “ER.” She says she’s “just thrilled to still be around,” and notes that this time, the nod feels different. “ ‘ER »

Amazon Releases ‘Transparent’ Season 3 Trailer

8 August 2016 8:11 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Moppa will be no more if the “Transparent” Season 3 trailer is anything to go by. The Amazon original series will drop Sept. 23 and the trailer shows Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) asking to be called mom instead of the affectionate mom-poppa combination her daughter came up with. In addition to the phenomenal core cast made up of Tambor, Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass, Judith Light, and Amy Landecker, audiences will see the return of favorites Kathryn Hahn and Anjelica Huston. According to Entertainment Weekly, the theme of the latest season will center on coming out of one’s shell, and will include more flashbacks from Maura’s character in the 1950’s to show what it’s like to feel in the wrong body at 12 years old.

Transparent Season 3 Trailer: What's Next for Maura?

8 August 2016 4:06 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

One of the best shows on television will return with new episodes on September 23.

And we can't wait.

Transparent Creator Jill Soloway, star Jeffrey Tambor and others associated with the Emmy-winning show sat down on Sunday for a panel discussion with the Television Critics Association.

Previewing footage of of the upcoming third season, which finds central character Maura Pfefferman getting a plastic surgery consult, the team offered a few insights into what we can expect from Transgender this fall.

"Season three, the theme is to come out of your shell," said writer Our Lady J, explaining that a key flashback will take place when a 12-year-old Maura is struggling with her identity.

"Most people think of someone who has transitioned is as going from male to female, not as being assigned the wrong gender at birth," she adds.

The series has already been renewed for a fourth season and writer »
