‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Welcomes New Cast Regulars the Only Way It Knows How: Through Song

6 April 2017 6:52 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

TV shows usually aren’t able to turn a discussion of two seasons of television into a thoroughly enjoyable low-key cabaret night. But that’s precisely what the cast and crew of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” did on Wednesday at the Television Academy in North Hollywood.

Gathering in front of TV Academy voters for their 2017 For Your Consideration event, the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” cast performed eight songs from the show’s sophomore season, weaving in a discussion of the various challenges that the latest run of episodes provided for the whole team. In a surprise move (that, in retrospect, is the only way that one of these things should start), writer/co-creator/star Rachel Bloom introduced the evening’s participants via a re-worked version of the show’s song “I Have Friends.”

Though the audience had trouble getting the song’s distinct clapping rhythm in unison, stars Vincent Rodriguez III (Josh Chan), Donna Lynne Champlin »

Top Showrunners Give Their Take on a Writers Strike and the Influence of Trump on TV — IndieWire’s WonderCon 2017 Panel

1 April 2017 10:19 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Put six showrunners from some of TV’s most innovative shows on stage, and right now the talk will eventually turn to the possibility of a writers strike.

And indeed, the question of a strike came up midway through IndieWire’s first-ever Fan Favorites Panel, held Saturday during WonderCon 2017 at the Anaheim Convention Center. “It’s a complicated situation,” said “BoJack Horseman” executive producer Raphael Bob-Waksberg. “Nobody wants a strike… but also the writers would like to be paid fairly for the work that we’re doing. The business has changed a lot.”

Read More: Writers’ Guild Negations Stall as Leaders Call for Strike Authorization

Bob-Waksberg and “Arrow”/”DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim pointed out that many shows now produce only 10 episodes – which means fewer paychecks for some writers.

Writers Guild of America members will vote later this month on whether to give its board authorization to call a strike. »

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Signs Overall Deal With CBS TV Studios

17 March 2017 11:02 AM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Aline Brosh McKenna: CBS Television Studios

This calls for a celebratory song and dance number. “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer Aline Brosh McKenna is strengthening her relationship with the studio behind the critically acclaimed CW musical comedy series. Deadline reports that she’s signed a two-year overall deal with CBS Television Studios. The pact sees her developing new projects for the network and cable via Lean Machine, her production company.

“McKenna is one of the highest-grossing female screenwriters of all time with a combined box office total of over $850 million worldwide for films such as ‘27 Dresses,’ ‘Annie,’ and ‘The Devil Wears Prada,’” Deadline writes. And she probably has her biggest commercial success on the way: McKenna co-wrote Disney’s upcoming live-action “Cruella,” starring Oscar winner Emma Stone. She also penned a graphic novel that will be published this fall, a contemporary take on “Jane Eyre.” It seems possible that the multi-hyphenate will start directing features sometime in the future — she’s helmed two episodes of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” so far.

“I try to avoid what I call fauxmergencies,” McKenna has said of her job as boss on the set of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend.” “As far as I’m concerned, if no one’s bleeding it’s not really an emergency because we’re just making a TV show.” Clearly that mentality is working out for her. The Golden Globe-winning series will return for a third season, most likely this fall.

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” Co-Creator Aline Brosh McKenna Signs Overall Deal With CBS TV Studios was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

IndieWire Stands With Women: 27 TV Shows Created by Women, Starring Women, That We Absolutely Love

8 March 2017 7:43 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Today is not only International Women’s Day, but a day when many are choosing to strike for A Day Without Women, an economic protest to remind the nation just how important women’s contributions to society are. And as part of that, IndieWire has assembled a powerful list of shows, all currently streaming online, that would not exist without the brilliant female creators at their center. This is the great TV that happens when women show up. Don’t take it for granted.

“30 Rock” (NBC, Netflix)

Did we fully appreciate the gift we had in Tina Fey’s absurdist take on life behind the scenes of a sketch comedy show, while it was on the air? Maybe not, but here’s what matters: “30 Rock” was one of the most original, bizarre, hilarious and unapologetically female shows of its time, and it holds up damn well.

Why I love the TV show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

3 March 2017 10:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Who would have thought that a romantic comedy-drama with original songs would be a canny commentary on the narrow categories we put women in?

There are formulae that make sense: 1+1 will (almost) always result in 2; dogs eating peanut butter is always heartwarming. And then there are others that seem to defy basic logic. One such formula is exemplified by one of my favourite TV shows of the moment, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. Who would have thought that a romantic comedy-drama with original songs would be a) any good; b) a critical success (awards include a Golden Globe, two Emmys and a Critic’s Choice award); and c) a canny commentary on the narrow categories we put women into? I want to take this show out on the town and buy it a drink.

Boom! Studios reimagining Jane Eyre with new graphic novel

22 February 2017 8:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Boom! Studios has announced that screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Devil Wears Prada) and Eisner Award-winning illustrator Ramón K. Pérez (Jim Henson’s Tale of Sand) are reimagining Charlotte Bronte’s classic Jane Eyre with a new graphic novel entitled Jane.

Growing up in a small fishing town, Jane dreamed of going to art school and escaping to New York City. When that dream becomes a reality, however, it’s not long before she feels intimidated by her new home and the talent of her peers. Needing money, she gets a comfortable job as a nanny for a young girl, Adele, but her security soon upended when she falls for the girl’s father, Rochester, a somber man with charm, wealth, and a dark secret that could consume them all.

“I am so excited for people to read our new take on this classic story,” explains Aline Brosh McKenna, »

‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend’ Ratings Steady In Finale, CBS & ABC Tie To Top Night In Demo

4 February 2017 11:01 AM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Hard to tell if it was the wedding from Hell or the one heading to Heaven on last night's Season 2 finale of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (0.2/1) but it certainly took things in a whole new direction on the Rachel Bloom and Aline Brosh McKenna created series. However in the ratings Friday's finale on the CW was exactly the same as last week among adults 18-49 and almost the same in viewership with 580,000 watching. Finale-to-finale, Crazy Ex was down just a tenth from its Season 1… »

[Spoilers follow for Season 2, Episode 13, “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?”]

“Well, now it’s really going to be ‘Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, isn’t it?” co-creator Aline Brosh McKenna said with a laugh, following a press screening of “Can Josh Take a Leap of Faith?,” the Season 2 finale of the Golden Globe-winning show.

“They’ve really been together now so she really is an ex now,” she went on to clarify about the relationship between Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III) and Rebecca (Rachel Bloom), the titular “crazy ex” who moved to West Covina, California at the beginning of Season 1 thanks to a renewed obsession with her former drama camp sweetheart. Rebecca and Josh had their ups and downs over the last two seasons, but their romance became a trainwreck on the day of their hastily planned wedding, when Josh left Rebecca at the altar, and Rebecca embraced her inner craziness to declare her need for revenge.

'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' Boss Reveals What's Next For Rebecca After That Crazy Season 2 Finale

3 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you have not watched Friday's Crazy Ex-Girlfriend season two finale.

No, the wedding didn't happen. Of course it didn't happen. This is Rebecca Bunch and Josh Chan we're talking about here, two people who were very clearly never suited for each other romantically, despite Rebecca's obsession with her teenage crush.

Plus, this wedding came together in two weeks, due to the sheer fear Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) felt a couple episodes back after kissing her boss, Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster), in an elevator.

Watch: Rebecca and Josh Ignore Their Problems 'Soul Train'-Style in 'Crazy Ex-Girlfriend' 

We thought the biggest shock was if Rebecca was walked down the aisle by her distant, negligent father (who did actually show up for the wedding -- more on that later) and heard Father Brah (Rene Gube) tell Josh, "You may now kiss the bride, bro." Turns out, the most surprising »

Crazy Ex Boss on That Wedding Finale Shocker, What It Means for Season 3

3 February 2017 6:59 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s Season 2 finale was billed as Rebecca and Josh’s big wedding day, and we did see some vows being made… just maybe not the vows we were expecting.

Josh was feeling a bit jittery, especially when a stressed-out Rebecca blurted out the name “Robert.” (Who’s that now?) Plus, her psycho former fling Trent popped back into the picture to drop an envelope full of Rebecca’s past misdeeds in Josh’s lap. Josh nobly threw that envelope in the trash… but he also ditched Rebecca at the altar to join Father Brah in the priesthood (!). Rebecca »
