Jane Kaczmarek discusses her recent personal turmoil

8 October 2010 9:35 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Marilyn Beck and Stacy Jenel Smith

HollywoodNews.com: Making Lifetime’s “Reviving Ophelia” movie that airs Monday (10/11) came as a much-appreciated lift for Jane Kaczmarek. The actress, who reigned for seven years as authoritarian mom Lois on “Malcolm in the Middle” — and for 17 as half of one of Hollywood’s favorite couples with ex-husband Bradley Whitford — admits, “It was a tough year. My husband filed for divorce. It was a very sad year.”

Many in the industry thought of the Whitfords as a great couple. “So did I,” she says. “I never thought I’d be single again.”

The divorce came in tandem with the disappointing cancellation of Steven Bochco’s ”Raising the Bar,” in which she played a judge, after two seasons.

Reviving Ophelia” represents “the first time I’ve worked since all of this happened. My manager liked the idea of getting me in front of a camera again, »

'Lone Star' faces cancellation after one episode

20 September 2010 9:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Now 20th Century Fox can claim to have produced both a Death Star and a dead "Star."

That the Fox drama "Lone Star" is on death watch is no surprise after its disastrous debut Monday, the first night of the fall TV season.

But unlike most series that experience television's ultimate indignity -- cancellation after one episode -- "Star" isn't being ushered out of existence to schadenfreude-fueled peals of laughter in the industry.

That's because unlike most shows consigned to the one-and-done club, the "Star" pilot drew critical acclaim and stood out from the pack of new pilots for being different than the increasing glut of procedural hours.

"No one in TV should be happy about this," said one agent who reps a writer on "Star." "This is going to have a chilling effect on networks taking chances on anything but cookie-cutter shows."

Flameouts are a ho-hum occurrence in the TV world, »

The 'A' List

9 September 2010 11:08 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Patricia Clarkson and Stanley Tucci share more in common than critical accolades and impressive resumes. Both actors enjoyed professional breakthroughs somewhat later in life, after struggling through their 20s and early 30s. Each credits the Steven Bochco series "Murder One" as a major turning point in their careers. And both share similar perspectives on their craft and the business -- not to mention a wicked sense of humor.Clarkson and Tucci have teamed up before in projects Tucci has co-written and directed, beginning with the 2000 film "Joe Gould's Secret." In 2007, the pair played a married couple estranged by tragedy who repeatedly pretend to meet for the first time in "Blind Date," inspired by a film from the late Dutch director Theo van Gogh. This month, the duo will reteam as a far more lighthearted couple in "Easy A," a smart new comedy from director Will Gluck and writer Bert V. Royal. »

Primetime to get racier after FCC ruling

15 July 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

There was a particularly unbridled episode of Fox's "American Dad" in January in which Stan, well, gave "full release" to a racehorse. That shenanigan was duly hit with an FCC fine. But five years ago, it wouldn't even have aired.

Fade whatever is left of the family hour: It's about to get even racier out there.

Primetime TV this fall is going to be chock-a-block with even more blatant sexuality and raunchy language. It's a trend that's been a long time coming and is now accelerating.

This week, the FCC's regulations on indecency were struck down by a federal appeals court that termed them "unconstitutionally vague," essentially loosening strictures against profane language on the small screen.

And it's not just about those fleeting expletives.

The CW has been upping the quotient of sexy goings-on on "Gossip Girl" and its updated "90210"; CBS turned a blind eye, as it were, to a »

Six to watch: La cop shows

1 July 2010 4:41 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

From Dragnet to Southland, the Lapd has had more than its fair share of TV love. Here are some of the best (and oddest) results

Southland, which starts tonight on More4, is the latest in a long line of TV shows featuring the La law. Benjamin McKenzie – last seen as the moody poolhouse-dwelling teen Ryan in The Oc – plays rookie officer Ben Sherman, learning the Lapd ropes with the help of seen-it-all officer John Cooper (Michael Cudlitz). Like so many recent Us shows, it's had a rocky start – but don't hold that against it. The first network to show it, NBC, decided that they didn't really want an authentic, gritty look at the Lapd once they'd seen just how gritty and authentic it was; in stepped TNT, where it's now heading for a third series: good news if there's a gritty, authentic cop show-shaped hole in your life. With that in mind, »

Cheers to Her

2 June 2010 6:01 AM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

Jane Lynch is not Sue Sylvester. Yes, this is tough to imagine, given how thoroughly she inhabits the towering inferno of a cheerleading coach on "Glee."In Sue, Lynch has created such a swaggering, barb-spouting, teenager-terrifying television icon, you half expect her to walk into a room proudly sporting one of the character's signature matchy-matchy sweatsuits.Yet, in person, Lynch is the polar opposite of her popular TV alter ego: affable, warm, and unfailingly modest. It's an attitude she has maintained throughout her decades as a recognizable character actor, bouncing from one scene-stealing turn to the next. After cracking audiences up with such standout supporting personas as Paula, the casually randy store manager in "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," and Gayle, the inappropriate catch-phrase-spouting ex-druggie of "Role Models," Lynch is finally having her breakout star moment on "Glee." But her veteran-actor status hasn't dimmed her enthusiasm one bit; if anything, she seems »
