3 February 2017 10:25 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Former first daughter Malia Obama made a surprise appearance at the final season premiere party of Girls on Thursday night in New York.

Obama, who was an intern on the HBO series’ sixth season, bumped shoulders with the likes of Rita Wilson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Sarsgaard, Judd Apatow and Leslie Mann, as well as Lena Dunham and the entire cast of the hit series, at the star-studded event.

Obama did not walk the red carpet at New York’s iconic Lincoln Center, but made her debut at the after-party hosted by HBO at Cipriani 42nd Street. Attendees jumped at the chance to meet the 18-year-old, who is currently taking a gap year before attending Harvard University in the fall of this year.

Dunham’s buzzy comedy about four young women in their early 20s (Dunham, Allison Williams, Jemima Kirke and Zosia Mamet) navigating post-grad life in the Big Apple has clearly opened more doors for Obama »

‘Girls’ Cast Celebrates Final Season and Legacy of Empowering Women

3 February 2017 8:18 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The cast and producers of “Girls” celebrated the legacy of the HBO series Thursday night at the New York premiere of the sixth and final season.

Not surprisingly, the party at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall also turned into a conversation of the impact “Girls” has had on women.

“I think this show introduced the television audience to a new kind of heroine who doesn’t look like the way that people aspired to look,” said Allison Williams, who stars as Marnie Michaels. “It’s been such a privilege to be a part of something that people had opinions about. Even if they were bad, they were from people consuming media that was made by women. This is such a girl party tonight.”

Girls” garnered attention from the start thanks to auteur Lena Dunham’s feminist, outspoken and unapologetic approach to showing the good, the bad and the ugly of being a modern twenty-something woman. It »

'The Good Fight' Won't Feature Julianna Margulies Cameo, But Expect More Swearing -- Watch the New Trailer!

9 January 2017 11:28 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

The Good Fight is leaner, meaner and fans are in for a treat come February!

The hour-long spinoff, which picks up one year after the events of the series finale of The Good Wife, kicks off after the father of a young lawyer, Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie), gets caught in a national Ponzi scheme scandal, which wipes out her godmother Diane Lockhart’s (Christine Baranski) entire life savings. Forced out of Lockhart & Lee after her plans to retire go awry, Diane and Maia join Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo) at one of Chicago’s preeminent law firms.

For Baranski, who returns as Diane after playing her for six seasons on The Good Wife, she and creators/showrunners Robert and Michelle King had deep discussions over her character’s big life moments in the 12 months in between the two shows.
