Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Her Fifth ‘Veep’ Emmy: IndieWire’s Emmys Endorsements (Comedy)

17 August 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Comedy Series

Black-ish

Master of None

Modern Family

Silicon Valley

Transparent

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Veep

IndieWire’s Vote: “Veep

It hurts us to think “Transparent” and “Master of None” may never get a turn at the table, especially this year after both delivered such stellar seasons: Jill Soloway’s follow-up far surpassed her already impressive first season, and Aziz Ansari’s Netflix debut showed just how diversity in front of and behind the camera can benefit our culture (not to mention how smart, insightful writing can still appeal to mainstream audiences). But David Mandel pulled off an equally impressive feat by matching (if not besting) “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci’s Emmy-winning prior season, stepping into massive shoes and running a six-minute mile without tripping. The best comedy, nay, the best series on TV remains the one to beat this Emmys season. All hail the queen.

‘Black-ish,’ ‘Modern Family’ Prove Broadcast Comedy Can Still Score With Emmy

17 August 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Despite the power and prestige cable dramas carry with Emmy voters, their comedy counterparts have faced an uphill climb in the past.

Last year’s comedy series win for HBO’s “Veep” broke broadcast’s 13-year winning streak in the category, becoming only the second cable show after “Sex and the City” to claim the top prize. (Drama honors have gone to cable all but four times over the same period.)

This year, the comedy race includes two broadcast titles (ABC’s “Black-ish” and five-time winner “Modern Family”), a pair from cable (HBO’s “Veep,” up for reelection, and “Silicon Valley”), and three digital shows (Netflix’s “Master of None” and “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and Amazon’s “Transparent”).

“Even in the comedy race, we’re getting edged out,” says “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris, whose show is a first-time nominee in the category. “I think that a lot of the reason that networks are having to swim upstream »

Jerry Seinfeld Turned Down Offer to Do Live Seinfeld Revival Episode

12 August 2016 7:49 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Has Larry David’s recent decision to bring back Curb Your Enthusiasm inspired Jerry Seinfeld to revive his eponymous ’90s sitcom? The short answer: “No!” — not that there’s anything wrong with that.

In a new interview, the comedian revealed that he has previously turned down an offer to bring back Seinfeld for a live episode that would have reunited the self-involved foursome of Jerry, Elaine, George and Kramer.

Jerry Seinfeld on His Surprise Emmy Nomination for ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’

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

Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” is perhaps an overlong title for a series, but it’s an accurate reflection of just what happens in Jerry Seinfeld’s talk show. And now after eight seasons on Crackle over the last four years, it has broken through to the Emmy Big Leagues with a nomination for outstanding variety talk series, joining mainstream shows like “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.”

Much of the talk around the show tends to focus on the comedians — or, in the case of President Obama, public figures — who join Seinfeld in each episode. Seinfeld chums Larry David and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Don Rickles and Tina Fey, have all gone on a coffee run with the host, who describes himself as “a one-man car culture,” the owner of a veritable fleet of rare vehicles classic and contemporary.

But don’t skip out on the “coffee” part. “I »

FX Boss Hopeful For More ‘Louie’ – TCA

We are more than a year into Louie‘s indefinite hiatus. But in light of another comedian, Larry David, recently deciding to bring his semi-autobiographical HBO comedy Curb Your Enthusiasm back from hiatus after almost five years, would Lewis C.K. follow suit? “He said publicly that he just has no more Louie to make at the moment about the stage in life he is living, and right now his focus very aggressively is on producing,” FX Networks CEO John Landgraf told Deadline… »

Another Saturday Night Live Cast Member Is Leaving the Show Ahead of Season 42

9 August 2016 8:36 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

And the Saturday Night Live exodus continues. Following the surprising news that Taran Killam and Jay Pharoah will not be returning for season 42, E! News has confirmed that Jon Rudnitsky will also be leaving the show.  Rudnitsky made his debut during the 2015-16 season and was the only newbie in season 41, but really didn't have a standout moment until he performed a Dirty Dancing parody during Weekend Update in a February episode, hosted by Larry David. He also did impressions of Tom Cruise, Vladimir Putin and Anderson Cooper during his time on the show.  While Rudnitsky has yet to sound off on his departure, Killam, who had been on the show for six seasons, admitted in an interview with »

Seinfeld 9/11 Spec Script Author Says Episode Should've Existed, but Couldn't Have

5 August 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.Writer and comedian Billy Domineau has stumbled into viral fame after posting a Seinfeld spec script that imagines how its well-known sitcom characters would have reacted to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. The 44-page episode, titled "The Twin Towers," perfectly channels what Domineau sees as the "nihilistic, no-hugging-no-learning nature of the show" by focusing on how the core characters each react selfishly to the national catastrophe: Jerry develops a paranoia about dust, Elaine tries to break up with a survivor she's seeing, George masquerades as a first responder, and Kramer discovers »

Emmy Voters Play Politics With Guest Noms for ‘Veep,’ ‘House of Cards’ Actors

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

Emmy voters are playing right into the election year by pointing a spotlight on strong guest performances in drama, comedy, and satirical series with political themes. Among the 24 Emmy-nominated guest roles, nine have a direct political tie-in.

It raises the question: Who’s winning in the battle of most outrageous storylines — the fictional or the factual politicians?

In many ways, TV seems like it’s trying to keep up with real life: Be it “Veep” politico Selina Meyer’s determined, misguided attempt to navigate Washington, “House of Cards” power couple Frank and Claire Underwood’s power-hungry mission to manipulate and take down anyone who stands in their way, or “Saturday Night Live’s” vision of a presidential candidate seeking counsel from her former self.

While Hillary Clinton was scrutinized for using a private email server, Selina Meyer (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) deployed an internal investigation into which staffer called her a profane name (the verdict: everyone). Donald Trump caused »

HBO Chief Talks Violence Against Women, ‘Game of Thrones,’ Jon Stewart and ‘Vinyl’

30 July 2016 10:16 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

New HBO programming president Casey Bloys’ first Television Critics Association press tour executive session saw him field several questions about violence against women in his network’s shows — including “Game of Thrones,” “The Night Of” and the upcoming “Westworld.”

“I’d like to not think so,” Bloys said when asked whether HBO and other premium-cable networks in general relied too often on violence against women as a narrative crutch. “I can tell you violence, it’s not just specific to women. It’s indiscriminate,” he said of the series on HBO. “Plenty of men are killed as well,” he added.

Critics have in the past singled out “Game of Thrones” for its frequent depiction of the rape of female characters, and the first episode of “Westworld” features the implied rape of a main female character. One reporter asked Bloys about the complaints that such depictions “normalize” sexual violence against women. “I »

HBO Boss Explains ‘Game of Thrones’ Delay and Spin-Off Ideas

30 July 2016 10:02 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As long rumored, “Game of Thrones” will end after Season 8, but that doesn’t mean the franchise is over.

HBO programming president Casey Bloys, in his first meeting with reporters since taking over the top job earlier this year, said he was open to the idea of spin-offs… but nothing was concrete yet.

“It’s something I’m not opposed to. [But] it has to make sense creatively… I’m open to it,” Bloys said.

For now, showrunners Dan Weiss and David Benioff are focused on Season 7 production and don’t have time to kick around spin-off ideas.

‘Klown Forever’ Poster and Trailer: Lars von Trier Meets ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ In This Outrageous Danish Shock Comedy

29 July 2016 6:17 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

In 2010,  Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen took their long-running Danish comedy “Klown” and brought it to the big screen with director Mikkel Nørgaard. Similar to Larry David’s successful HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” Klown starred the duo as fictionalized versions of themselves and centered around their increasingly awkward shenanigans and encounters within the Danish entertainment scene (Hvam played a former popular comic and Christensen was his best friend).

Fortunately, the duo are coming to America in the sequel, “Klown Forever.” Still seeking fame, fortune and friendship, the pair arrive in the states to take on Hollywood and they come face-to-face with some of its biggest starts, from Adam Levine to Isla Fisher and “Game of Thrones’” star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. Will their attempts to find American success pay off? Probably not, and as the new trailer indicates, »

CAFÉ Society – Review

28 July 2016 4:37 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Woody Allen narrates CAFÉ Society, his 47th film and at age 80, his voice is sounding sadly geezerish.  Set in the mid-1930’s, CAFÉ Society has a cool period soundtrack, an older man courting a much younger woman, a Jewish family kibitzing around the dinner table, quotable dialog on love and life, and a neurotic Jewish hero channeling a much younger Woody. In other words, all the elements of a great Woody Allen film. It also has Vittorio Storaro’s rapturous cinematography (a Woody first) and a terrific and complex central performance from Jesse Eisenberg. CAFÉ Society is the most romantic Woody since Annie Hall and one of his best.

Leaving his (very) Jewish family back in the Bronx, young Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) heads west to “learn the movie business” from his Uncle Phil (Steve Carell), a bigtime Hollywood talent agent. Phil assigns his captivating, but romantically unavailable, secretary Vonnie »
