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.”

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 »

None of CBS’ New Fall Series Are Women-Centric

17 May 2017 11:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Yeah, we can’t believe this shit, either: Cush Jumbo and Rose Leslie on “The Good Fight

CBS has unveiled its fall 2017 lineup and, in terms of women-centric programming, it’s a wasteland. Per The Hollywood Reporter, the network is moving forward with eight pilots: four dramas, four comedies. And none of them feature a female protagonist.

Four of the projects are standard CBS-fodder (i.e. procedurals and “The Big Bang Theory”): “Instinct” with Alan Cumming, David Boreanaz-starrer “Seal Team”; “Swat,” starring Shemar Moore and Jay Harrington; “Wisdom of the Crowd,” toplined by Jeremy Piven; and “Big Bang Theory” prequel “Young Sheldon.” The other series are “By the Book,” a comedy about a man (Jay R. Ferguson) who lives his life according to the Bible; Bobby Moynihan-starrer “Me, Myself and I,” which depicts the protagonist at three different phases of his life; and family sitcom “9Jkl” with Mark Feuerstein.

CBS also renewed five of its freshmen series: “Bull,” “Kevin Can Wait,”

“MacGyver,” “Man With a Plan,” and “Superior Donuts.” All of those shows are male-centric and “Superior Donuts” is the only one not toplined by a white dude.

The lack of of women in the schedule might seem egregious, but CBS CEO Les Moonves isn’t particularly concerned. “We do a number of pilots, a lot of them have women in starring roles. There are a lot of women in the schedule,” he told the press at before the CBS upfronts. “The best pilots went at the end of the day and we think our track record is Ok.”

Yeah, it’s not. Women, indeed, were the leads or co-leads on six projects — but CBS decided not to pursue any of them. Among the rejects are Amy Brenneman-starrer “The Get,” “Perfect Citizen” with Kristin Chenoweth, and an untitled Jenny Lumet project starring Sharon Leal.

Driving home his point — and painting himself further into the corner — Moonves referenced the current slate of women-centric projects at CBS. “I don’t think we’ve ever had to apologize for having [Tea Leoni-starrer] ‘Madam Secretary’ and Lucy Liu [of ‘Elementary’] and ‘The Good Fight’ and ‘The Good Wife’ and I think we do fine in that area.”

Yes, Liu is great on “Elementary” — but she is not the star. When push comes to shove, it is Sherlock’s (Jonny Lee Miller) story, not Watson’s (Liu). Second, we’re happy that CBS aired “The Good Fight,” a women-centric, diverse show starring a woman over 40. Good on them, but Moonves shouldn’t pat himself too hard on the back. “The Good Fight” is only available on CBS All Access, a streaming platform with few offerings that costs $5.99 per month. Most viewers aren’t willing to sign up for a streamer in order to watch only one original series, so “Good Fight” shouldn’t be your go-to example to explain why CBS doesn’t hate women. Also, “The Good Wife” isn’t on the air anymore, so it’s time for Moonves and CBS to forfeit their bragging rights on that one.

Even more frustrating? This is the second consecutive year CBS has been called out for its lack of inclusivity — and the second consecutive year they’ve shrugged off the criticism. Matt LeBlanc, Kevin James, Michael Weatherly, and a bevy of other white (and mostly male) leads dominated the network’s fall 2016 schedule. Network president Glenn Geller responded by citing “Madam Secretary,” “Mom” with Allison Janney and Anna Faris, long-running comedy “2 Broke Girls,” and “Doubt” with Katherine Heigl and Laverne Cox. He described the 2016 slate as “are more diverse this year than last year” in his defense and concluded, “We are definitely moving in the right direction.”

It’s worth pointing out that both “2 Broke Girls” and “Doubt” have since been cancelled. So much for that argument.

So, it’s time that Moonves realizes that CBS’ fall 2017 lineup isn’t “fine” and the network’s track record is far from “Ok.” If the network truly wants to move “in the right direction,” they should try greenlighting shows — hell, a show s— focused on women. Supporting multiple shows with inclusive casts and women of color in prominent roles would be even better. Because, honestly, no one wants to have this conversation about CBS again in 2018.

None of CBS’ New Fall Series Are Women-Centric was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

CBS: Stop Saying That ‘This Is Us’ Is the Biggest New Hit of the Year; ‘Bull’ Is

17 May 2017 6:20 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

No “Bull,” CBS wants you to know that the freshman Michael Weatherly series is actually the No. 1 new show of the year in total viewers, over NBC’s lauded “This Is Us.”

“We congratulate them on their success, but we like winning,” CBS senior exec VP Kelly Kahl said. He also pointed out that even CBS’ “Blue Bloods” has a larger audience than any other drama on the other networks, except “This Is Us.”

The Big Bang Theory” is the “Wayne Gretzky of comedy,” he noted, arguing that no other half-hour comes close in total viewers, which is why they’re big on spinoff entry “Young Sheldon.” The show was recently renewed for two more seasons, a negotiation that Moonves characterized as amicable.

He also said he “hoped” that the show will continue even beyond that. “We’ll do these two years and we’re not going to just lay down, »
