28 June 2017 4:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Younger” gets attention for its look into the New York social circles and its attention-grabbing fashions, and that’s as it should be. After all, this is a series by Darren Star, who also brought us the delights of “Sex and the City.”

Sutton Foster stars as Liza Miller, a 40-year-old woman who’s just emerged from a failed marriage and must re-enter the work force. The only problem is that no one will even glance at her resume since she became a full-time mother nearly two decades ago. But after she’s mistaken for a 26-year-old at a bar, she decides to pass for much younger and lands a job at publishing firm Empirical Press.

Lauren Graham to Adapt Ya Novel “Windfall” for the Screen

7 June 2017 10:31 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Lauren Graham in “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life”: Saeed Adyani/Netflix

Gilmore Girls” star and author Lauren Graham is writing a screenplay. As Deadline reports, Graham has optioned Jennifer E. Smith’s Ya novel “Windfall” and plans to pen its film adaptation for her production company, Good Game Productions. No word on a director yet.

Released in May, “Windfall” is the story of Alice, who buys her best friend and longtime crush, Teddy, a lottery ticket for his 18th birthday. “To their surprise, he ends up winning $140M, which changes everything,” Deadline summarizes. Two of Smith’s previous novels, “The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight” and “Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between,” are also receiving big screen adaptations.

“Windfall” isn’t the only screenplay Graham has in the works. She is developing “Wedding for One,” which she wrote with “Jane the Virgin” showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman, for Lakeshore Entertainment. She previously adapted Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan’s novel “The Royal We” for CBS Films and is producing the project. Graham also adapted her own novel, “Someday, Someday Maybe,” for The CW in 2014. The bestseller about a young actress trying to make it in New York was published in 2013.

Graham recently reprised her most-famous role, Lorelai Gilmore, in Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” The four mini-movies picked up about a decade after the original WB series left off and followed Lorelai, her daughter (Alexis Bledel), and her mother (Kelly Bishop), throughout one calendar year. Graham previously portrayed Lorelai, a young single mother building a business from the ground up, from 2000–2006 on “Gilmore Girls.”

The “Parenthood” actress recently starred in the Fox pilot “Linda from Hr,” but the project is not moving forward. You can catch Graham next as a recurring guest star on HBO’s “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” Not much is known about Graham’s character on the long-running comedy, but she told TVLine she portrays “someone who has very colorful language.”

Lauren Graham to Adapt Ya Novel “Windfall” for the Screen was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

‘Somebody Needs to Put This Whole Movie in the Corner’: Twitter Has a Lot to Say About ABC’s Dirty Dancing Remake

24 May 2017 7:35 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The small-screen reimagining of Dirty Dancing aired Wednesday evening — and Twitter users candidly shared their opinions about the musical production.

Thirty years after the 1987 film favorite released, ABC gave it new life with its three-hour TV special, starring Abigail Breslin (Baby Houseman), Colt Prattes (Johnny Castle), Sarah Hyland (Lisa Houseman), Debra Messing (Marjorie Houseman), Nicole Scherzinger (Penny Rivera), Katey Sagal (Vivian Pressman) and Bruce Greenwood (Dr. Jake Houseman).

“This isn’t a replica of the original. This takes some liberties. It has the DNA of the original, but you are going to find out what happened to Baby and Johnny after that summer ended. »

TV Movie Review: ‘Dirty Dancing’ Rebooted on ABC

18 May 2017 7:21 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Here’s a thought experiment. Take any film you love, in any genre — “Star Wars: A New Hope,” “Eraserhead,” “9 to 5,” whatever — and imagine it reshot, nearly scene-for-scene, with a cast of new actors inhabiting the exact same story. Same location, same era, same characters, and frequently, even the same dialogue. Is it wide-eyed homage or larceny? Let’s add a confounding element: The only thing that’s changed is that the new version is bloated with seven or eight slick musical numbers, where the characters suddenly start singing the lyrics to the well-known songs that make up the soundtrack. Oh, and one of the characters solves racism. Now how do you feel about it?

There is not enough space here to fully engage with what is so lovely about the 1987 film “Dirty Dancing,” an unconventional, gritty, sexy dance-romance that has become one of the most beloved films of the ‘80s. The »

11 May 2017 11:22 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Lauren Graham would return to Stars Hollow in a heartbeat, even without a budget or real sets, for that matter.

“I would do that just as an actor in a barn in the middle of nowhere,” the actress said at a Netflix event in Beverly Hills on Thursday night. The Emmys For Your Consideration showcase, moderated by Graham’s former “Parenthood” co-star Mae Whitman, offered press and Academy voters a chance to revisit Graham’s moving performance in Netflix’s “Gilmore Girls” revival.

Amy Sherman-Palladino’s “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” Gets Two-Season Order

10 April 2017 10:01 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”: Amazon Studios

As die-hard “Gilmore Girls” fans would say, “Copper boom!” “Gilmore” creator Amy Sherman-Palladino’s newest series, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” just got a two-season order from Amazon, The Hollywood Reporter writes. This is reportedly the first time Amazon has ever given a multi-season order to one of its pilots.

Starring “House of Cards’” Rachel Brosnahan as Miriam “Midge” Maisel, the pilot centers on a 1950s Jewish housewife who supports her husband (Michael Zegen, “Brooklyn”) as he pursues his passion for stand-up comedy. After one her husband’s sets bombs, Midge ends up at The Gaslight Cafe herself, drunkenly taking the stage and telling jokes of her own. And she kills it.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” pilot was written, directed, and exec produced by Sherman-Palladino. Her husband and producing partner, Daniel Palladino, is also executive producing with Dhana Gilbert.

Citing the audience response as “digital applause,” Amazon head of comedy and drama Joe Lewis commented, “Like any great young stand-up, we’re excited to see what [‘Mrs. Maisel’] has to say next and for a long time to come. That made it an easy decision to order two seasons from Amy and her incredible cast. We can’t wait to bring it to customers soon.”

The “Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” pilot is currently streaming for Amazon Prime subscribers. No word on a first season premiere date yet.

It’s heartening to see Amazon showing confidence in Sherman-Palladino and “Maisel,” especially since the streaming service tends to be rough on its women-created offerings. Dana Calvo’s women’s liberation-themed “Good Girls Revolt” was cancelled after one season despite strong ratings and its prescient subject matter. Jill Soloway, the creator of Amazon tentpole “Transparent,” was forced to go through the streaming giant’s pilot process again with “I Love Dick.” This would be perfectly reasonable if Amazon hadn’t handed out series orders to film directors Woody Allen and Nicolas Winding Refn and “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner without asking for pilots.

Sherman-Palladino’s resume is full of TV shows centered around women, often those who can spit out pages-long monologues without blinking an eye. In addition to “Gilmore Girls,” Sherman-Palladino has created, written, and directed for the short-lived “Bunheads” and “The Return of Jezebel James.” Last November, she revived her most beloved project on Netflix with “Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.” It consisted of four mini-movies and brought back Lauren Graham, Alexis Bledel, and Kelly Bishop to reprise the roles of Lorelai, Rory, and Emily Gilmore. Almost all of the original main cast and supporting characters returned as well. Netflix is reportedly leaving the door open for additional “Gilmore Girls” installments, so Amazon might not the only placed you’ll find future Sherman-Palladino projects.

Blu-ray Review – Dirty Dancing: 30th Anniversary Collector’s Edition

30 January 2017 12:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Dirty Dancing, 1987.

Directed by Emile Ardolino.

Starring Patrick Swayze, Jennifer Grey, Jerry Orbach, Wayne Knight, Cynthia Rhodes, Kelly Bishop, Jack Weston, Jane Brucker, and Lonny Price.

Synopsis:

In the summer of 1963, teenager Baby Houseman goes on a family holiday and falls in love with a rebellious dance teacher.

Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and when you’re nostalgic about a film that celebrates nostalgia you know you’re a) overly sentimental and b) getting old. Yes, we’re at that stage now when those classic movies we loved growing up in the 1980s are getting anniversary editions and this year sees, amongst others, Dirty Dancing getting dusted down and re-packaged in a special 30th anniversary collector’s edition Blu-ray.

It is very doubtful that anybody reading this will need a plot rundown but just in case you’re totally oblivious to the charms of romantic musicals it goes like this: »
