“Transparent” is more than just a television show. “This is a moment. It’s a perfectly timed creative explosion,” said creator Jill Soloway from the stage at the Ace Hotel’s United Artists Theater Monday night. In welcoming cast, friends and guests to the premiere of the new Amazon comedy, Soloway took the opportunity to thank everyone who has been involved in the show in some way, from her actors to the transgender community who inspired the piece.
“Transparent,” follows the Pfefferman family as father Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) finds who he really is, and transitions to Maura, “but really it’s a story about everyone in the family,” said Jay Duplass, who plays middle child Josh. “And everyone is undergoing a massive sort of evolution so, five different family members, very different types of people, and there’s something in there for everybody.”

Ever since he turned on the club back in season 4, Juice Ortiz has been the Sons of Anarchy character you love to hate. Or is it hate to love? Or is it both? Because while Juice is a man that has made some downright terrible decisions as a member of Samcro, he also seems like a good guy deep down. As a result, viewers have been left to alternate between wanting to see Juice pay for his sins (like killing a fellow Son) and hoping he can get a fresh start. Theo Rossi, the man who plays Juice, loves hearing »

Over the past few days, Guardians Of The Galaxy officially won the weekend box office for the fourth time since its release. That might not sound like a huge deal, but that almost never happens. In fact, only 4 movies including Guardians have done that since 2000, and only 32 movies have done it since these things started being closely tracked and made available in the early 1980s. So, yeah, Guardians Of The Galaxy is a hit. You probably knew that already, but in order to properly contextualize it, let.s take a closer look at those 32 movies that won five or more consecutive weekends. Let.s take a trip down memory lane to revisit these incredibly popular movies from our past and remember why they had such a huge impact at the box office. #32) Mr. Mom Release Date: July 22, 1983 Number Of Weeks Won: 5 Stars: Michael Keaton, Teri Garr, Jeffrey Tambor, Christopher Lloyd, »

Penned by Robin Schiff (Almost Perfect), the series centers on Logan (One Life to Live vet Josh Casaubon), a charming surfer who is left in charge of his ex-girlfriend’s yoga studio. Fonseca will play Winter, an instructor who becomes a love interest for Logan.
The series also stars Paget Brewster as Logan’s ex, »
Believe it or not, it's been nearly 11 years since Arrested Development first came into our lives. Personally, we still find this a little hard to wrap our heads around, not only because the first episodes of the show still feel as fresh as the newer TV comedies on air right now, but also because we still get excited thinking about the prospect of new episodes. Keep scrolling to see how Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, and the rest of the Bluth family have transformed over the years. Use the arrows over the pictures to see each star during the first season of Arrested Development compared to a more recent picture from the past year.

Gaby Hoffmann’s friends like her a little crazy and very naked. Her director pal Sebastian Silva cast her as a radical free spirit in last year’s Crystal Fairy and the Magical Cactus, and Lena Dunham turned her into Adam’s disturbed sister Caroline on Girls. In Amazon’s new comedy from Jill Soloway, Transparent, Hoffmann plays Ali, a lost soul whose father Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) is about to come out as Maura. We talked to the actress about how her new show feels like destiny and why she doesn’t understand the national fixation on her vagina.Just as the chatter about your vagina has quieted down, you’re naked again in the first episode of Transparent.I’m just very comfortable with nudity. For me, it’s normal [laughs]. I do think we could use a little bit of relaxing in that area in this country. It’s »

Continuing the theme of reviving unlikely TV superheroes….
Also starring Nestor Carbonell (Lost) as Batmanuel, Liz Vassey (All My Children) as Captain Liberty and David Burke (Brothers & Sisters) as Arthur, the live-action Tick originally ran for nine episodes on Fox in 2001.
Determined to be the next Netflix, Amazon is continuing its original programming plans with the company's third wave of TV pilots now available.
Five shows are in contention: Whit Stillman's Paris-set "The Cosmopolitans" starring Adam Brody and Chloë Sevigny; Marc Forster's "Hand Of God" starring Ron Perlman and Dana Delaney; the Mena Suvari-led medical drama "Hysteria"; David Gordon Green's coming of age comedy "Red Oaks", and Jay Chandrasekhar’s laugher "Really".
All five are available for viewing through Amazon’s Prime Instant Video in the U.S. and UK. Viewers can weigh in with opinions on which shows should be made into Amazon Original Series. Here's the sizzle real for all five:
This follows on from the first pilot wave of which only "Alpha House" and "Betas" made it to series and neither of which has made much impact. The second wave of pilots took place »

Brewster will play said ex, Amanda.
Amazon has released the trailer for its new dramedy “Transparent,” about an L.A. family dealing with the late-in-life decision of their father (Jeffrey Tambor) to live as a woman. Could this be the show that will catapult Amazon into the Netflix-sphere, where original online content like “Orange Is The New Black” and “House of Cards” wins awards and better yet subscribers? With a fresh and exciting cast including Gaby Hoffman, Jay Duplass, and Amy Landecker as the couple's children, Judith Light as Tambor’s ex-wife, and Carrie Brownstein in a small role, it very well could. The pilot debuted on Amazon in February and received enough buzz and acclaim to for the series to be greenlit, with Amazon likely seeing this as a strong contender to become must-watch material. Tambor helped draw the binge-watching crowd with Netflix’s “Arrested Development” revival, and creator Jill Soloway (“United States of Tara, »

If you haven’t heard of Transparent yet, I don’t blame you. Despite the pilot episode being available online to watch since February, Amazon’s newest original series has somehow managed to fly under the radar. I’m not sure why that is, either.
For one, Transparent stars Jeffrey Tambor. That alone should be reason enough to check it out. Then, there’s the fact that the series comes to us courtesy of Jill Soloway, who walked away with the Directing Award in the U.S. dramatic category at Sundance for her film Afternoon Delight. Most importantly, however, is that early reviews have all been extremely positive and the show is surely but steadily building some very strong word of mouth.
Today, in hopes of perhaps gaining some more publicity before its premiere next month, Amazon released the first trailer for their new series, and it does a great »

The new crop of pilots can be sampled in the »
The past few years has seen a rise in online streaming content, as services like Netflix and Yahoo have begun to create their own original content as well as pick up shows cancelled by networks. Amazon has similarly diversified into the streaming market, with their own twist; they often release a number of pilots online, letting their viewers vote on which of them shall get a series order. One of the successful pickups from their last set was Transparent. Created by Jill Soloway, who has previously written for Six Feet Under and United States of Tara, as well as writing and directing the 2013 feature Afternoon Delight, the series stars Jeffrey Tambor, Melora Hardin, Gaby Hoffmann, and Jay Duplass. The show focuses on the trials and tribulations of a family as the patriarch comes out as a transgendered individual. Amazon has now announced that the series first 10-episode season will be »

But will the entire cast be able to fit in one tiny car?
That’s one question to ask now that FX has ordered a 10-episode first season of Zach Galifianakis‘ single-camera comedy Baskets, about a man with aspirations of becoming a professional clown.
Galifianakis co-wrote the pilot and will serve as executive producer alongside Emmy winner Louis C.K. and Emmy-nominated writer/director Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, Saturday Night Live), who will serve as Baskets‘ showrunner and also directed the pilot.
FX describes the series as follows: »
