UnREAL Ep Marti Noxon: Don't Blame Me for That Disappointing Season 2

19 September 2016 9:19 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Confession: I did not know Marti Noxon had completely abandoned Lifetime’s UnREAL after co-writing the Season 2 premiere when I interviewed her Sunday evening on the Emmys red carpet. I had read the reports of creative friction between her and fellow co-creator Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, but I assumed — mistakenly so, it turns out — that she had maintained at least a tangential involvement in the series.

UnREAL's Shiri Appleby Stands By Season 2, Predicts a 'Better' Season 3

19 September 2016 5:51 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Shiri Appleby knows that Season 2 of UnREAL was, shall we say, polarizing. But, ahead of Season 3 (which starts filming in February), the Lifetime drama’s writers are “really focused already on trying to figure out what worked and didn’t work,” she promised TVLine’s Michael Ausiello on the red carpet at Sunday’s Emmys.

In the wake of Season 2’s criticisms, the show’s scribes, she continued, are busy strategizing “how we can do better and improve for Season 3.”

Our reporter on the scene fills us in on what went on at Sunday’s ceremony when cameras weren’t around. 3:25 p.m. Security is much tighter around the ceremony.

Shiri Appleby Reveals She Attended Her First Emmy Awards as a Seat Filler

Shiri Appleby has come a long way from her first Emmys trip: As she shared Sunday, the UnREAL star first attended the award show as a seat filler, in college. So to come back with an actual invitation? "It feels like I really amounted to something," Appleby, 37, said during People & EW's Red Carpet Live Sunday, before the show. "I'm so happy to be here, it feels like Hollywood's prom," Appleby said. And her prom date this year is her husband, John Shook.

Emmy-Nominated Writers Talk Actors, Research & Changing Story Arcs at Sublime Primetime 2016

16 September 2016 5:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It was the television writers’ turn in the spotlight at the Writers Guild of America West’s Sublime Primetime event Thursday night, which was moderated by “Better Call Saul’s” Bob Odenkirk.

An assembly of TV scribes from across Emmy writing categories assembled at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills for a freewheeling forum on the work that earned them nominations this year.  The event, introduced by Wgaw president Howard Rodman and Variety‘s Debra Birnbaum, was presented by the Writers Guild of America West, the Writers Guild Foundation, and Variety.

Each of the scribes recounted various issues they encountered in their series over the past season. “The Americans” showrunners Joe Weisberg and Joel Fields noted that many of their notoriously long-simmering plot lines finally reached a boil after four seasons — a welcome payoff for patient viewers (prompting Odenkirk to quip, “This is what I was thinking: ‘Oh my God, this »

Devious Maids Canceled at Lifetime!!

1 September 2016 1:24 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Those maids are going to have to find their sexy time on their own time.

They certainly aren't going to be doing it for our eyes.

Lifetime has chosen to close the door on Devious Maids after Season 4. There will be no Season 5.

Devious Maids was somewhat of a spinoff of Desperate Housewives after came to an end, and seemed to carry the soapy torch for its first three seasons.

Devious Maids Season 4, however, has been met with some criticism. 

Apparently that criticism wasn't for nothing, as the ratings, while consistent for the season, remained steady at 0.923 million viewers (L+Sd).

That's after toppling from Devious Maids Season 1 high of 3 million viewers. Talk about a bleed!

Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sánchez, Judy Reyes, Susan Lucci, Rebecca Wisocky, Tom Irwin and Grant Show starred on the series for all four seasons.

The vehicle has also given Susan Lucci a place »

She's Calling the Shots Now! Shiri Appleby's Game-Changing Advice for UnREAL Costar Joanna Braddy

Johanna Braddy has found a "new obsession" thanks to Shiri Appleby. On Thursday, People caught up with Braddy at Good Housekeeping's 2016 Awesome Women Awards celebration and asked the 28-year-old actress who inspires her and why. "Shiri Appleby ... in so many ways, personal and career," Braddy gushed about her UnREAL costar. "One of the first scenes I had with Shiri where it was just us two, she started talking about the longevity of a women's career in the acting industry. She said 'You can't just rely on your face, you need to start directing,' and I was like, 'What? That's silly. »

‘Mr. Robot,’ ‘UnReal’ and the Perils of Big Swings in Second Seasons

24 August 2016 3:26 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It may not be entirely fair that “UnReal” and “Mr. Robot” are yoked together, at least in the minds of some TV critics and drama aficionados, but more than the proximity of their mid-2015 debuts unites them.

Both dramas engendered a lot of buzz by doing smart and provocative things with very tricky premises. Neither show was perfect — they had some first-season wobbles — but they were the kind of energetic rebels that weren’t afraid to play around with formulas and break the rules with frequently fruitful results.

And then they both lost the plot in their second seasons. That’s not a metaphor.

It’s hard not to wonder if the glut of television that led to the creation of these shows eventually brought about the self-inflicted wounds that marked their second years. The show’s creators (Sarah Gertrude Shapiro and Marti Noxon for “UnReal” and Sam Esmail for “Mr. Robot”) got their shots in part »

‘Homeland’s’ Lesli Linka Glatter and ‘UnReal’s’ Marti Noxon on the Challenges of Writing & Directing in Peak TV

18 August 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Amping up the drama on television is no easy feat, with viewer expectations rising amid increased competition across manifold platforms. Lesli Linka Glatter has become “Homeland’s” go-to director — she earned her third Emmy nomination for helming the episode that saw Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) protect Otto During from a terrorist attack in a refugee camp. And Marti Noxon, now juggling multiple projects include the upcoming drama “Sharp Objects” at HBO, earned her Emmy nod (alongside Sarah Gertrude Shapiro) for the pilot of “UnReal” which exposed the manipulations that drive reality television.

Lesli, you’re the only female nominee in your category. Marti, aside from Michelle King (“The Good Wife”), you and Sarah are the only female nominees. Why are we still having this conversation?

Lesli Linka Glatter: Oh my god, I wish we weren’t in 2016 we have the first female presidential candidate. I tell you, if you would have asked me when I started »

Plus: Burn Later Productions, Killer Films cast Lemon; and more…

Former Academy president Arthur Hiller, who earned an Oscar nomination for Love Story and also directed Silver Streak, died on Wednesday in Los Angeles of natural causes. He was 92.

“I was a member of the board during his presidency and fortunate enough to witness first-hand his dedication to the Academy and his lifelong passion for visual storytelling,” said current Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.

Hiller received the Academy’s Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award in 2001 for his philanthropic commitment to numerous charitable organisations, educational institutions and civil rights groups.

He served as Academy president from 1993 to 1997 and was president of the Directors Guild Of America from 1989 to 1993.

Hiller is survived by his daughter, Erica Hiller Carpenter, his son, Henryk, and five grandchildren. Gwen Hiller, his wife of 68 years, died in June.

Review: ‘UnReal’ Season 2 Finale Plays It Safe to Start Over in Season 3

9 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“This is what’s wrong with America: women constantly hurting other women.”

While absolutely on point, Yael’s (Monica Barbaro) comment to Rachel (Shiri Appleby) during Monday’s “UnREAL” finale might sound out of place to anyone who still remembers where we started in Season 2. Rachel and Quinn (Queen Constance Zimmer) began the year by snagging matching “money dick power” tattoos and promising to make “Everlasting” ever-relevant by featuring the first black suitor. The focus leaned heavily into race and how race was discussed on TV — as Rachel sacrificed everything to get there — but that worthy cause was all but forgotten by the finale.

Yes, when Darius (T.J. Britt) made the surprising choice to pick the previously disqualified contestant, Ruby (Denée Benton), the moment was meant to convey how Rachel had succeeded in orchestrating a genuine interaction without orchestration: actual reality in reality TV. But really, as the camera »
