From ‘Downton Abbey’ to ‘The Americans,’ Shows Retire Age Cliches

3 June 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Romance has always been the force that drives the PBS period drama “Downton Abbey.” This season’s most sizzling storyline wasn’t about widowed Mary Crawley’s (Michelle Dockery) secret getaway with a potential new spouse, but the surprisingly lively love lives of her grandmother, Violet (Maggie Smith), and mother-in-law, Isobel (Penelope Wilton).

“I think people have emotional lives until they, on the whole, die or at least get too old to care,” says “Downton” creator and writer Julian Fellowes. “I don’t see why a woman like Isobel Crawley, who has been widowed quite young and is still certainly in late middle age — the idea that it would be not be appropriate to have any love interest is something I just don’t understand. We all know these (older, single) women in our own lives … they’re still capable of a romantic story, they’re still capable of a relationship. »

Jane the Virgin, Ep. 1.19 to 1.22 is an entertaining finish to the season

12 May 2015 4:53 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justin Baldoni, Ivonne Coll, Gina Rodriguez

Jane the Virgin, Season 1, Episodes 19 to 22

Created by Jennie Snyder Urman

Airs Mondays at 9 pm Et on The CW

A combination of factors, most prominently Rafael’s discovery that his mother took a bribe to cut off communication with him, led Rafael to break off his relationship with Jane, leaving the latter single for the first time since her pregnancy, at a time when the baby’s arrival is precariously close. The last few episodes of the season explore how Jane deals with trying to be a single mother, asserting her independent character while focusing on the importance of family relationships to several individuals, in a solid finish to a strong first season for the series.

The show’s focus on family relationships over the past few episodes has been a great way to reinforce one of its key strengths. It’s nice to »

‘Jane the Virgin’ Finale Delivers on Pilot’s Promise (Spoilers)

11 May 2015 11:39 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

What a wire-to-wire run for “Jane the Virgin.” Having been greeted last fall with paeans of praise from critics, the show fulfilled the promise of its pilot, maintaining a sweet, whimsical tone throughout its first season. Anchored by a star-making turn by Gina Rodriguez, the series cleverly built on its telenovela-inspired conceit, chewing through story at an impressive pace. All that culminated Monday (and Spoiler Alert if you haven’t watched) with the inevitable cliffhanger, setting up plenty of intrigue for season two. Sure, there was an adorable baby, but all that really did was underscore how consistently “Jane” delivered.

Granted, some fans might feel a trifle let down by the nature of that cliffhanger, in which Jane’s newborn was promptly kidnapped. That rather unsettling moment followed more contortions in the on-again, off-again relationship between Jane and Raphael (Justin Baldoni), as well as the lingering presence of Jane’s »

‘Jane The Virgin’ Season Finale Sneak Peek: Will Xo Miss Jane Giving Birth? (Exclusive Video)

11 May 2015 10:14 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Jane is about to give birth, but on the season finale of “Jane The Virgin” big questions still loom even as the baby makes his or her way into the world. In this exclusive clip (above) from Monday’s finale, Jane (Gina Rodriguez) is contemplating whether to attempt a natural birth or get an epidural. Although her grandmother (Ivonne Coll) and baby daddy/ex-boyfriend Rafael (Justin Baldoni) are by her side, they provide little comfort.

Gina Rodriguez Discusses How Jane the Virgin’s Non-Latina Showrunner Makes the Series Work

16 March 2015 8:00 AM, PDT | VH1.com | See recent VH1.com news »

During the Jane the Virgin PaleyFest panel on Sunday, Golden Globe-winner Gina Rodriguez stepped up to answer an audience question about just how their showrunner, Jennie Snyder-Urman, depicts Latinos so accurately, despite not being one herself.

First up, Urman had this to say:

I set out to create very specific characters and create situations that were specific and the things that they wanted were specific. The more specific you get with characters, the less they become stereotypical… I thought about Jane a lot and, I’ve said this before, I have more trouble writing men than I do a 24-year-old very driven, type-a woman who wants to be a writer. And then I thought about who’s this 24-year-old virgin and from that I started to think about who were mother was and who her grandmother was. We all have friends that are multicultural. I’ve been in houses where, »

‘Jane the Virgin’ Star Gina Rodriguez Urges Networks to ‘Write for Human Beings’ in Quest for Diversity

16 March 2015 2:02 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When the “Jane the Virgin” cast took to the PaleyFest stage at the Dolby Theater on Sunday, the result was every bit as humorous, engaging and inspiring as quirky The CW show itself, touching on everything from star Justin Baldoni’s enviable abs to the ongoing struggle for immigration reform, prompting the cast to joke that they’d soon embark on a motivational speaking tour.

Golden Globe-winning star Gina Rodriguez kicked things off by eloquently discussing what the role of Jane meant to her, admitting, “Jane is a woman I wish I was more like… You seldom get the opportunity to even audition for a woman who is so strong and empowering and fearless and driven and a virgin.” Rodriguez pointed out that her parents are from Puerto Rico and speak Spanish and English, so she relates to relate to Jane’s dual identity and was eager for the chance »

'Jane The Virgin' Cast Inspired by Immigration Issue

15 March 2015 11:09 PM, PDT | backstage.com | See recent Backstage news »

The cast of “Jane The Virgin” felt at home tackling illegal immigration in the magical realism of the CW’s telenovela. The series’ mid-season premiere Jan. 19 revolved around Jane’s abuelita Alba (Ivonne Coll), who faces deportation after a traumatic brain injury (she’s since recovered). “I represent thousands of immigrants who came to this country,” Coll said Sunday at PaleyFest L.A. Her Spanish-speaking character, “puts a face on all of the thousands of illegal immigrants who are here who aren’t criminals. I think we’re doing something important.”  Others in the cast share Coll's sense of added pressure. Back in January, Gina Rodriguez said her Golden Globe win represented a “culture that wants to see themselves as heroes.”  It was the CW’s first Globe win and has helped push the ensemble cast to new heights. “When you’re in a scene with Gina, it makes you better, »

Jane the Virgin, Ep. 2.07 to 2.13 continues to impress with tricky mix

10 February 2015 5:46 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Justin Baldoni, Gina Rodriguez, Andrea Navedo

Jane the Virgin, Season 2, Episodes 7 to 13

Airs Mondays at 9 pm Et on The CW

While the premise of a show about a virgin who gets artificially inseminated could have been enough for a show to explore over a season, Jane the Virgin has refused to rest on its laurels, with the pregnancy being only one of several storylines. Even the voiceover has amusingly commented on this in the recaps, noting that “who cares? Lots of way more important stuff is going on.” The writers have managed to pull this off remarkably, building character development and plot momentum in tandem with each other while still keeping the humour in the show, resulting in a highly enjoyable set of episodes.

The show’s focus on characters continues to be a strong point. The biggest proof of that over the past few episodes has been the development of Petra. »

Glee Recap: Bacharach to the Future

6 February 2015 8:08 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Mercedes Jones may or may not be the truth, but she sure as heck spoke it in this week’s installment of Glee. And we can sum up her testimony in a simple mathematical equation: Rachel Berry + Broadway = Endgame.

No disrespect to those who ship Klaine or Brittana or Samcedes or even Samchel (a mashup moniker that makes me a little queasy every time I type it). But as the show sails into the midway point of its sixth and final season, I’m most interested in seeing the original members of New Directions stay true to their career goals »

‘Jane the Virgin': Rita Moreno Cast as Rogelio’s Mother

28 January 2015 3:27 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Are you ready to meet Jane Villanueva’s other grandmother?

Rita Moreno — who’s an Egot winner, best known for “West Side Story” — has been cast as the mother of Rogelio De La Vega (Jaime Camil), Variety has confirmed.

Jane’s paternal grandma, also known as “Glam-ma,” is described as “fiercely protective” of her telenovela superstar son, TVLine first reported. We have a feeling Moreno’s character might just ruffle some onscreen feathers with Xiomara (Andrea Navedo) and Alba (Ivonne Coll).

Moreno makes her debut on episode 18 this season.

On Monday’s Jane the Virgin (The CW, 9/8c), the titular heroine preps her boyfriend/baby daddy Rafael for dinner with her family, but winning over her disapproving mom Xo will prove even harder than the couple fears.

“There’s definitely tension. Let’s put it that way,” Andrea Navedo previews.

For starters, Rafael rubs Xo the wrong way when he says Jane should do whatever she wants when it comes to her career, since he’ll take care of her and the baby financially.
