11 Things We Learned at the ABC TCA: Scoop on 'How to Get Away With Murder,' 'Once Upon a Time,' and More

16 July 2014 12:30 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

ABC had their Television Critics Association presentation on Tuesday, and we were there to get the latest scoop on their new fall TV lineup. Panels for Shonda Rhimes's new Viola Davis show, "How to Get Away With Murder" and the Anthony Anderson comedy "Black-ish" were among the highlights. What were some key takeaways from the network's big day?

1. ABC is "bullish" about Wednesday

So says ABC president Paul Lee, who was particularly enthusiastic about its comedy block that day this fall. "I personally believe 'The Goldbergs' is going to be discovered by a lot more people this year," he noted. There was a lot of love for the '80s-set comedy, which will now air between successes "The Middle" and "Modern Family."

2. There's a push for diversity

Lee also talked about the network's diverse programming."It is a mission statement to reflect America," he explained. "In a way it's »

Press tour: Why Karen Gillan can't be Scottish on 'Selfie'

15 July 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Speaking in her native Scottish accent, Karen Gillan has one of the most charming and endearingly goofy voices in all of show business. So why on earth would "Suburgatory" alum Emily Kapnek — creator of "Selfie," a modern-day twist on "Pygmalion" starring Gillan as social media-obsessed Eliza and John Cho as Henry, the man who will turn her into a genuine lady — ask her to play the role as an American? "I don't find Karen's (real) accent that convincing," Kapnek joked during the ABC comedy's press tour panel. "People are charmed by it, but I feel like she's in and out of it a lot." More seriously, Kapnek argued, "Obviously, it's a very different story if you tell the story of a Scottish girl who is shunned by her co-workers; it takes on a different meaning." For her part, Gillan — alum of "Doctor Who" and soon to appear on movie screens »

Selfie Creator Justifies Buzzy Title, Hopes for Suburgatory Visitors

15 July 2014 12:26 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The stars and creator of ABC’s fall comedy Selfie were forced to do a little self-examination Tuesday during the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour, beginning with a defense of the show’s seemingly unlikable main character.

“We meet her at a place where she has her flaws intact,” executive producer Emily Kapnek admitted of Karen Gillan’s self-obsessed — not to mention social media-obsessed — Eliza Dooley, adding that John Cho’s seemingly perfect Henry is also not without his flaws. »

Press tour: ABC goes diverse with 'Black-ish,' 'Cristela' & more

15 July 2014 11:30 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"If you look at shows now that seem to lack diversity, they actually feel dated. America doesn't look like that anymore, and people want to see an America that looks like where they live." This was ABC entertainment president Paul Lee at his press tour executive session, discussing by far the most notable aspect of the network's freshman lineup of shows for next season. Just among the newbies debuting in fall are "Black-ish," starring Anthony Anderson as an affluent African American executive who's worried his kids are losing touch with their culture; "How to Get Away with Murder," ABC's latest Shonda Rhimes-produced series, starring Viola Davis as a criminal law professor; "Cristela," starring Latina comedian Cristela Alonzo (who also created it); and "Selfie," a "Pygmalion" riff that casts John Cho in the Henry Higgins role. Among the shows on the bench for mid-season: "Fresh Off the Boat," about an »

Take Me To The Pilots '14: ABC's 'Selfie'

5 July 2014 2:33 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

[In case you've Forgotten, and as I will continue to mention each and every one of these posts that I do: This is *not* a review. Pilots change. Sometimes a lot. Often for the better. Sometimes for the worse. But they change. Actual reviews will be coming in September and perhaps October (and maybe midseason in some cases). This is, however, a brief gut reaction to not-for-air pilots. I know some people will be all "These are reviews." If you've read me, you've read my reviews and you know this isn't what they look like.] Show: "Selfie" (ABC) The Pitch: "It's a modern take on 'My Fair Lady.'" "Is there singing?" "No." "Then it's a modern take on 'Pygmalion.'" "Fine. Whatever.] Quick Response: [If I'm being honest, there actually Is a "musical" scene in "Selfie." I guess I don't want to spoil it.] For all of the people I like who are associated with "Selfie," the pilot itself is a grating mess on nearly every level. Emily Kapnek's script relies way, way, way too much on circa-2013 (and circa-2012) social media buzzwords and slang and it will, best case scenario, be a museum piece by 2015. Worse case scenario, it's already a museum piece and viewers who are already judging the show for its title won't last more than five minutes of the main character telling rivals not to be "jelly." And don't worry: I get that Karen Gillan's Eliza is Supposed to be annoying and awful and you're supposed to judge her for the "jelly" stuff and for her repeated references »

Roberto Orci says Star Trek 3 will take place in deep space during the Five-Year Mission

27 June 2014 8:57 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now that Roberto Orci has secured the director’s chair and Paramount has set a 2016 release date, development on the third instalment of the studio’s rebooted Star Trek series is moving up to full impulse power, and during a chat with the Humans From Earth podcast, Orci has spoken briefly about the threequel, stating that the story will take place in deep space during the crew’s five-year mission…

“In [Star Trek Into Darkness] they set out finally where the original series started. The first two films – especially the 2009 [Star Trek] – was an origin story. It was about them coming together. So they weren’t the characters they were in the original series. They were growing into them and that continues on in the second movie. So in this movie they are closer than they are to the original series characters that you have ever seen. They have set off on their five-year mission. So »

Tilda Swinton brings 'Snowpiercer' to La Film Fest and U.S. screens (finally)

12 June 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Los Angeles - After back to back years of opening night duds "To Rome with Love" and "I'm So Excited," the Los Angeles Film Festival kicked off its 2014 campaign with a real winner, Joon-ho Bong's "Snowpiercer."  Stars Tilda Swinton, Ed Harris, Allison Pill, Kang-ho Song, and Ah-sung Ko were on hand as Bong's critically acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller finally hit U.S. shores.  Chris Evans, who is essentially the film's lead, sent a video message from London where he's shooting "Avengers: Age of Ultron" proclaiming how happy he was over the La premiere. Like co-star Swinton, Evans has been publicly passionate over his love for "Snowpiercer."  He actually mentioned his genuine excitement over a long awaited resolution regarding the movie's American release during our interview for "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" in March.  Bong's follow up to his 2009 drama "Mother" was actually released in his native South Korea last August. »

Mindy Kaling Defends ‘Mindy Project’ First Season at Fox Panel

9 June 2014 11:27 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The title “Girls Night Out” was a fitting name for the panel that Fox held at the Leonard H. Goldenson Theatre in North Hollywood on Monday, as some of the net’s most prominent female figures turned up to talk their career beginnings, their shows and the challenges that come with working in the industry.

Mindy Kaling (“The Mindy Project”), Jane Lynch (“Glee”) Chelsea Peretti (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”), Alex Borstein (“Family Guy”), Yeardley Smith (“The Simpsons”), Liz Meriwether (“New Girl”) and Heather Kadin (“Sleepy Hollow”) were all in attendance at the panel. Lynch was sure to tease the audience with some info about “Glee’s” final season.

The Emmy winner said that they hope the last handful of “Glee” episodes all carry a very strong message with them, and even revealed they might get “some of the old kids back” to close out the show. She grew somber, however, when asked about Cory Monteith, »

More Women of Color Breaking Through Into Emmys Race

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Once upon a time, most women on television all looked like Donna Reed. Today, it’s a great time to be a woman of color working in television.

Last season, three women of color — “Scandal’s” Kerry Washington, “Modern Family’s” Sofia Vergara and “Steel Magnolias’” Alfre Woodward — were nominated for Emmys — lead actress in a drama, supporting actress in a comedy and supporting actress in a movie or miniseries, respectively. And this season, the broadcast networks rolled out show after show featuring African- and Asian-Americans and Latinos in lead roles. Half of ABC’s 12 new shows star actors of color.

“Pilot season hasn’t been this diverse in a long time, specifically as we are talking about women,” says Tiffany Smith-Anoa’i, CBS’ vice president of diversity and communications.

That said, there’s still plenty of work to be done.

In 2013, out of six categories featuring actresses — lead and supporting in drama, »

ABC Reveals Fall Schedule And Previews New Shows

15 May 2014 2:32 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Now that it is just barely summer, it’s time for the networks to try their best to get you excited for fall television. ABC wants you to get excited for their schedule, and their new shows, and I’ve got some previews for you, as well as some initial thoughts.

I have to tell you, ABC is looking more and more strange as time goes on, and the overall efforts of the network really have to make you wonder. While there are some hints of interesting shows, and one or two that might turn into worthwhile vehicles, in the Eddie and the Cruisers world of television, ABC is Joe Pantoliano, clutching his tapes, and furiously blathering about the lunacy of not giving the idiotic public what they want, especially since they keep demanding it.

To that end, ABC has declared Thursday, Shonda Rhimes night, largely because someone apparently had »

Does the trailer for ABC's 'Selfie' make you want to hit the like button?

13 May 2014 4:40 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

My initial reaction to the concept of ABC's new sitcom "Selfie" was a snarky expression (maybe one of those colon capital P emoticons) and possibly a Gif of a cat rolling its eyes. The show is a riff on "My Fair Lady," but in this version Eliza is "instafamous" and wants to find out how she can function in the real world! After seeing the trailer, I'm feeling more colon backslash. This could be a fun, light way to spend thirty minutes, or it could be the worst kind of romcom. The only way to know for sure is to watch.  In the plus column, we have two intensely likable stars -- Karen Gillan (beloved by "Doctor Who" fans everywhere) and John Cho (many more things, but always "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle"). While we get the sense there's a love match afoot, they aren't an obvious pairing (if »

ABC's new fall shows: A snap judgment

13 May 2014 4:36 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Superheroes and fairy tales dominated the midseason lineup at ABC’s upfront presentation, with shows like Galavant and Marvel’s Agent Carter coming soon. “We may be a terrible network,” joked Jimmy Kimmel, “but we are a great birthday party for a 6-year-old.” But for fall, ABC stuck to the basics: broad comedies, police procedurals, and Shonda Rhimes, whom ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee described as the Charles Dickens of our generation. Her latest show, How to Get Away With Murder, isn’t exactly Great Expectations, but it might be the only new ABC series worth watching. Quick takes on the others follow below. »
