The 25 Best One-Season Television Shows of the Last 25 Years

22 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In the age of peak TV, we’ve gotten to see many series which are constructed to be satisfying after just one season of storytelling. But it’s important to remember that this is a relatively new phenomenon, that all too often, potentially great shows will get cancelled before getting the chance to reach their full potential.

Read More:8 Cancelled TV Shows That Got A ‘Twin Peaks’-Style Revival

The list below focuses on scripted series, reaching back over two decades to cover some of television history’s most disappointing ends. The aim is to remember some of network and cable’s most audacious experiments, for better and for worse.

25. “Almost Human” (2013-2014)

In many ways, “Almost Human” was deeply flawed to a degree that made its cancellation understandable — it struggled to balance too many plot threads with an over-reliance on recycled world-building, ultimately failing to coalesce despite some ambitious »

'Wisdom of the Crowd' Boss Promises to Address "Potential Flaws" of Crowd-Sourced Justice

1 August 2017 3:48 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Crowd-sourcing as a way to solve crime?

That's the premise of CBS' forthcoming drama Wisdom of the Crowd, which stars Jeremy Piven as a visionary tech innovator creates a cutting-edge crowd-sourcing app to solve his daughter's murder and revolutionizes crime solving in the process. He and his team then go out and solve other crimes while Piven's character continues the season-long (or possibly more) for the person who took his daughter's life.

When speaking with reporters Tuesday at the Television Critics Association summer press tour, writer and showrunner Ted Humphrey admitted "It's an idea that, honestly, scared the hell out of »

In CBS’ upcoming procedural Wisdom of the Crowd , Jeremy Piven plays billionaire tech innovator Jeffrey Tanner who takes justice into his own hands by seeking out his daughter’s killer with the most recent means of internet crowdsourcing. “Honestly, the idea scared the hell out of me,” said Ep/showrunner Ted Humphrey who worked with Keshet in adapting the Israeli series for a network audience. “In the last year we’ve all encountered the ying and yang of the internet in… »

The Best War Movies of the 21st Century, From ‘Dunkirk’ to ‘The Hurt Locker’

28 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Ron Perlman would have us believe that war never changes, but the movies about it certainly have. The last 15 years have brought no shortage of films about the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan (for obvious reasons), but World War II continues to fascinate filmmakers most of all. That includes Christopher Nolan, whose recent hit “Dunkirk” manages to bring something new to a genre that constantly feels at risk of becoming old hat.

Read More‘Dunkirk’ Is Too Loud For Some Viewers, But Christopher Nolan Says That’s the Way He Likes It

And while those two conflicts have dominated the genre of late, everything from the Civil War to the Battle of Red Cliffs has found powerful expression onscreen. Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Hurt Locker” tells us that “war is a drug,” and the films below suggest that movies about war are just as addictive — maybe even more so. »

Uber the Movie: Who Will Play Travis Kalanick? (Photos)

21 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

A movie adaptation of ride-sharing tech giant Uber seems inevitable after CEO Travis Kalanick stepped down Tuesday. Scroll through for our dream cast and a few choices for lead role of Kalanick. Travis Kalanick played by Dave Franco We think the younger Franco brother can definitely tackle the role of executive asshole. Travis Kalanick played by Adam Devine We think the “Workaholics” and “Pitch Perfect” star could bring a good amount of “bro” to the role. Travis Kalanick played by Jeremy Piven Our next possibility for the ex-ceo is Piven. This seems like a good fit after “Entourage.” »

Israeli TV Makes Huge Inroads Stateside

8 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In 2008, “In Treatment,” a heady half-hour drama about a psychotherapist and his patients, landed on American TV screens, adapted for HBO from the original Israeli format “BeTipul.” It was created by Hagai Levi, who would later go on to co-create “The Affair.” Since then, Israel has exploded as one of the hottest markets for small-screen entertainment, with a rash of hit Israeli series — “Hatufim,” now “Homeland,” is the most famous example — immigrating Stateside to the tune of commercial success and a bounty of critical kudos.

Israel, a country oft solely recognized as a political powder keg rife with cultural and religious strife, has now firmly positioned itself as a TV content breeding ground — from silly game shows to subversive comedies — with massive global reach. Upcoming adaptations that will soon set sail for America include “Emmis,” adapted from “Shtisel,” an Israeli drama about an ultra-Orthodox brood in Jerusalem that was sold by Marta Kauffman’s Okay Goodnight! shingle »

La Screenings: Procedural Dramas, ‘Young Sheldon’ Draw Interest From International Buyers

26 May 2017 4:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

International TV buyers who gathered on studio lots this week for the annual La Screenings market were glad to see the broadcast networks embracing procedural dramas for the coming season.

New dramas such as CBS’ “Swat” and “Seal Team,” ABC’s “Deception” and “For the People,” Fox’s “The Resident” and NBC “The Brave” and “Reverie” were generating some heat among the roughly 1,500 international TV buyers who took part in the weeklong marathon of screenings of new series for the 2017-18 season.

Buyers and sellers alike agreed that this year’s crop didn’t have a clear breakout hit among the international buyers but the number of procedural dramas on the slate was a welcome change from the recent past.

“The more things change the more they stay the same,” said Armando Nunez, president of CBS Studios International. The largest broadcast networks in major TV markets in European, Latin America and Asia tend to gravitate to the »

L.A. Screenings: What Seven Major Studios Have on Tap

23 May 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s what seven major studios have on tap during the annual TV market.

CBS Studios Intl.

Big bets are being placed on military dramas “Seal Team,” starring David Boreanaz, and “Valor,” featuring a fresh-faced cast. Summer series “Salvation” also has a military angle (albeit crossed with sci-fi), while both Jeremy Piven’s “Wisdom of the Crowd” and Alan Cumming’s “Instinct” mix crime solving and modern technology. The studio is light on laughs this year, with just one solo-produced comedy: “9Jkl,” based on the life of creator and star Mark Feuerstein.

Disney Media Distribution

Not just one but four new Marvel series will be on display, including the much anticipated “Inhumans” and the youth-skewing “Cloak & Dagger,” “New Warriors” and “Runaways.” And although it’s not based on a comic book, “Grey’s Anatomy” officially becomes a franchise, launching a new as-yet-untitled spinoff. Shonda Rhimes also makes her case with legal drama “For the People,” while »

Women Leads on TV Decline As Networks Discover White Dudes in Crisis

19 May 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

For the broadcast networks this fall, women need not apply. With a few notable exceptions — Kyra Sedgwick (ABC’s “Ten Days in the Valley”), Edie Falco (NBC’s “Law & Order: True Crime – The Menendez Murders”), and Anne Heche (NBC’s “The Brave”) — female leads are few and far between.

Networks announced fewer new shows this year, practicing a little restraint rather than buying too many that wind up as late-season castoffs. However, women-led shows were hit hardest: Of approximately 36 new series, just 11 have a first-billed female. Last year there were 41 new shows, of which 20 had a female lead.

Blame might go to a handful of trends on this year’s schedules: More military-themed dramas led by tough guys, a rise in male-dominated sci-fi and comic book shows, and a TV trend that IndieWire has dubbed “Dude-Life Crisis.”

This year, (mostly white) middle-aged guys at a crossroads are a phenomenon. Jason Ritter »

The 4 Worst New Fall TV Show Titles & How We’d Fix Them

18 May 2017 4:13 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Now that the Big 5 networks have unveiled their new fall shows (with a few midseason offerings thrown in), we can get down to really investing in what we’re going to see this year. But first, let’s address an issue that we’re sure many viewers have when it comes to getting excited about new shows: really awful titles.

What’s in a name? Well, if you ask “Trophy Wife,” everything. The critically acclaimed series didn’t feel like the usual sitcom fare. Its humor was smart, ironic and a little bit daffy, and the performances were delightful and nuanced. Sadly, during its entire 22 episodes, it couldn’t ever escape bubble status, and in the end, really lame marketing tactics was its downfall. The show wasn’t about a trophy wife at all, and in fact, that title undermined its strong, feminist voice. The show never saw a Season »

‘Young Sheldon,’ ‘S.W.A.T.,’ ‘Seal Team’: CBS Fall TV Trailers, Ranked and Reviewed

17 May 2017 3:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

CBS came into today’s upfronts presentation ready for a splash. Boasting about the biggest new show of the season and with one of TV’s most prized bits of IP in its back pocket, the network looked to turn heads with its slate of fall programming.

With “Star Trek: Discovery” journeying forth to CBS All Access, that left eight other shows to make a notable impression with their trailer debuts. As we’ve done for other networks so far this week, we’ve gathered all the first looks below and ranked them from disastrous to “get this in our eyeballs posthaste.”

“Wisdom of the Crowd”

The show may miraculously find a way to dig itself out of its philosophically murky premise, but boy does this seem like a horribly misguided setup. Billionaire Mogul Jeremy Piven somehow makes sense, but a weekly crime procedural that extols the virtues of a »
