Louis C.K. Partner Talks Making of ‘Horace and Pete,’ Fate of ‘Louie’

9 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It took a village to keep “Horace and Pete” under wraps until Louis C.K. was ready to raise the curtain on his self-financed drama series.

M. Blair Breard, C.K.’s producing partner, spoke about the origins of “Horace and Pete” on Thursday during her appearance at Variety‘s Entertainment and Technology Summit in Manhattan. The 10-episode drama series debuted with no advance promotion on Jan. 30, distributed via C.K.’s website. The first episode was offered via streaming or download for $5, with the price dropping to $2 for subsequent episodes that were released each week on Saturdays.

“The most amazing thing really was we were able to keep it quiet,” Breard said. “Nobody knew about it.”

The surprise factor was notable given the level of talent involved with “Horace and Pete,” a story revolving around two brothers and a sister who inherit a bar in New York. In addition to C. »

Could Bernie Sanders Win the Nomination After His Surprise Indiana Victory?

4 May 2016 11:05 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Ted Cruz basically handed the reins of the Republican party to Donald Trump after the Indiana primaries on Tuesday, but things aren't looking so final on the other side of the aisle. Bernie Sanders pulled out a surprise victory in the Hoosier State, besting Hillary Clinton after weeks of setbacks. The Indiana win re-invigorated Sanders' campaign, which recently suffered massive campaign cuts. "It's an uphill fight for us. But you know what? I started this campaign 60 points behind Secretary Clinton. We've been fighting uphill from day one," the Vermont Sen. told CNN. "We will continue to fight uphill and I »

Bernie Sanders Gets Added to 'Seinfeld' Playing George Costanza

28 April 2016 3:35 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

It's gold, Jerry.  A video recently made by comedy site Break.com imagines what it would be like if Bernie Sanders had played George Costanza on the iconic TV sitcom Seinfeld.  Footage of the presidential candidate speaking is transposed onto the character played by Jason Alexander. The video is a little longer than two minutes and features numerous scenes from Seinfeld.  The bit is even funnier when it's realized that Seinfeld co-creator Larry David has been playing Sanders lately on Saturday Night Live.  Sanders himself had a small cameo on SNL, appearing on screen with David in a February

Ratings: Prince Tribute Scores Highest ‘SNL’ Spring Overnight Score Since 2013

24 April 2016 9:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

A special Prince tribute episode of “Saturday Night Live” delivered strong ratings for NBC last night, including the latenight program’s top overnight scores in both young adults and households in two months and its strongest household performance for an episode airing in spring since 2013.

“Goodnight Sweet Prince” was Saturday’s top-rated program, according to Nielsen overnights, averaging a 4.5 household rating/11 share and a 2.1/11 in the 25 markets where adults 18-49 numbers were available. This is the top household rating for “SNL” since Feb. 6 (5.1 with Larry David as host) and the best in the demo since Feb. 13 (2.3 with host Melissa McCarthy and musical guest Kanye West).

For its three originals in April, hosted by Peter Dinklage, Russell Crowe and Julia Louis-Dreyfyus, “Saturday Night Live” averaged a 4.0/10 in households and a 1.9/9 in adults 18-49. That translated in the final nationals to an overall average audience of 5.43 million viewers and a a »

Q&A: ‘Veep’ Showrunner on What’s Next for Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Embattled President

22 April 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The end of “Veep” season 4 left Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ President Selena Meyer where we often find her — in a state of consternation. Her bid for reelection has ended in a tie, leaving the outcome in constitutional limbo. The final scene is vintage “Veep,” with Selena struggling to put on a happy face, then fuming at her staff when out of public view.

It’s also the series’ final moment under creator and original showrunner Armando Iannucci, who departed after season’s end. Unlike other recent HBO showrunner changes, this one was not driven by creative concerns. “Veep” is one of TV’s most acclaimed shows, having earned nine Primetime Emmy Awards, including last season’s for best comedy series and four straight for Julia Louis-Dreyfus as best actress in a comedy.

Iannucci returned to his native U.K. intent on spending more time with his family. His successor, “Curb Your Enthusiasm” veteran David Mandel, »

Café Society trailer: first look at Woody's latest suggests sparky Coens-ish satire

22 April 2016 5:38 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jesse Eisenberg makes another bid to be the perfect Woody Allen substitute in La-set, Cannes-bound comedy also starring Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell

Many actors, over the years, have assumed a lesser or great quantity of Woody-isms standing in for him on screen. Some have been no-brainer good fits (Larry David, Owen Wilson) and less easy matches (Kenneth Branagh, Will Ferrell). But it is perhaps Jesse Eisenberg who shows the most promise as a true spiritual soulmate, from his brief appearance in the moderate To Rome With Love.

Playing Bernie Sanders on 'Saturday Night Live' could end Emmy drought for Larry David

18 April 2016 11:22 AM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

He may be behind in the delegate math but Bernie Sanders has been on a hot streak lately. He's won seven of the last eight states which could lead to a big victory later in the year. But I’m not talking about taking the White House which is looking unlikely. Rather, the Emmys may well ‘feel the Bern’ with Larry David winning for his socko "SNL" performance as the seasoned Senator from Vermont. -Break- Subscribe to Gold Derby Breaking News Alerts & Experts’ Latest Emmy Predictions David’s likeness to Sanders had the internet buzzing before his first appearances as the presidential candidate on “Saturday Night Live” several times last fall. He then hosted the show, which he wrote for briefly back in the eighties, in February and Sanders appeared alongside him. Last weekend, he returned to 30 Rock to play the politico and spar with "SNL" host Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who reprised. »

Saturday Night Live Review: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Hosts

17 April 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Our host for tonight is Julia Louis-Dreyfus, best known for her work on Seinfeld and Veep and for being something of an all-around comedy goddess. She held her own tonight in an episode that was a bit hit-or-miss, with pre-taped segments outshining weaker live sketches, but overall containing several memorably funny moments. Let’s dig in!   Cold Open: Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton go toe to toe in the latest democratic debate, in which they are faced with audience questions from New Yorkers Elaine Benes and Rachel Green. I’m ready for the primaries to be over not just because they’ve been so exhausting, but also because I want SNL to have some new material to play with in their cold opens. Right now, it’s pretty much Donald Trump isracist and repulsive, Ted Cruz is evil and repulsive, Bernie Sanders is poor and kooky, Hillary Clinton wants it real bad, »

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Brings Back Elaine, Reunites With Larry David on ‘SNL’

17 April 2016 10:32 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Elaine Benes met Bernie Sanders, and it went pretty much how you would think it would go.

While hosting “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Julia Louis-Dreyfus brought back her “Seinfeld” character Elaine, who grilled Bernie Sanders — who happens to be played by “Seinfeld” creator Larry David — during a debate.

During the show’s cold open, David’s Sanders went toe-to-toe with Kate McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton in typical fashion. Once the floor was opened to audience questions, however, Elaine took Sanders to task on how exactly he plans to break up the big banks. Sanders’ answer was surprisingly simple.

“I’ll go to the big banks, I’ll sit them down, and yada yada yada, they’ll be broken up,” he explained.

“You can’t yada yada at a debate!” Elaine replied. “Also, you yada yada’d over the best part.”

Elaine also had a question for Clinton, which may »

In the cold open sketch, revolving around this week's Democratic debate in Brooklyn, Elaine asks David's Sanders just how exactly he plans on breaking up the big banks, to which the Vermont senator replies, "I'll go to the big banks, I'll sit them down, and yada yada yada, they'll be broken up."

Julia Louis-Dreyfus on 'SNL': 3 Sketches You Have to See

17 April 2016 7:32 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Let's face it: April has been a pretty cruel month for Saturday Night Live fans. Aside from a killer sketch about space pants, there have been few memorable moments or big laughs. The fact that an episode hosted by Julia Louis-Dreyfus continued this streak almost defies reasoning. An SNL alum and one of the most celebrated comic actresses of the past twenty years, Louis-Dreyfus seemed like the perfect way to end this subpar month on a high note.

There is only one more three-week block to go before SNL is off for the summer. »

‘Saturday Night Live’ & Julia Louis-Dreyfus Summon ‘Seinfeld’ Spirit In Democratic Debate; Nick Jonas Gets The Jokes

17 April 2016 6:03 AM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

In one of the better cold openings on Saturday Night Live this season, Kate McKinnon and Larry David channeled Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in their latest CNN debate. The show was hosted by Veep star Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and the Seinfeld theme lent itself well to the upcoming New York primary, since the sitcom was the ultimate New York comedy. All that was missing was Jerry, George and Kramer, but Louis-Dreyfus asked Sanders (her former Seinfeld cohort David) for… »

The Veep funnywoman’s co-star, Tony Hale, popped up during the best part of her opening monologue — channeling fawning “bag man” Gary as her cue-card handler. Before that, she also had a chance to reunite with Seinfeld co-creator Larry David, who played Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Debate Cold Open, while Louis-Dreyfus, in a deliciously meta turn, revived her classic ’90s sitcom character (and New York primary voter) Elaine Benes (above).

Julia Louis-Dreyfus Brings Back Elaine Benes While Hosting ‘SNL’ (Video)

Julia Louis-Dreyfus brought former characters of many different spheres to this week’s “Saturday Night Live,” beginning with the very top of the show. In a cameo-rich episode, it was Louis-Dreyfus who dominated. The show opened with the Democratic presidential debate in NYC. Kate McKinnon‘s Hillary Clinton squared off with Larry David‘s Bernie Sanders, both impersonations spot-on caricatures, as the debate devolved into Clinton rapping “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” theme and giving Sanders a noogie. And then came a question from audience member and “longtime New Yorker” Elaine Benes, the character Louis-Dreyfus made famous on the show David co-created, »

Seinfeld's Larry David and Julia Louis-Dreyfus held a mini-reunion during Saturday Night Live's debate-themed cold open April 16.  Beck Bennett (as CNN's Wolf Blitzer) first introduced the candidates. “Hello, Brooklyn! I cannot wait to be your next president," said Hillary Clinton (played by SNL's Kate McKinnon). "If I'm elected, of course — not getting ahead of myself … in public. In private I’ve been president for 15 years.” Bernie Sanders (played by David) told the audience: “I’m not fancy, I’m not the elite. I put on my pants just like all of you. I sit on

Tribeca Review: Documentary 'The First Monday in May' Explores Art & Fashion With Anna Wintour And Andrew Bolton

14 April 2016 1:29 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Art, fashion, commerce and celebrity collide in this entertaining documentary from “Page One” filmmaker Andrew Rossi. Using the annual Met Gala and the corresponding launch of a new exhibit at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art as its centerpiece, “The First Monday in May” asks if fashion is truly a fine art or merely a decorative one. The film largely argues for fashion's placement in the pantheon with painting and sculpture, but commercialism and celebrity culture — as well as a few internal detractors like designer Karl Lagerfeld — threaten to undermine its status. Held on the first Monday in May, the Met Gala is an annual event to raise money for the museum and celebrate style. Accompanied by muses wearing their designs, top-tier designers attend, as well as celebrities as wide-ranging as Miley Cyrus, George and Amal Clooney, Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Larry David. At the heart of “The »
