Mark Duplass on HBO's Animals: 'The TV show world is terrible'

5 February 2016 8:32 AM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

We find out how the Duplass brothers got stars such as Jessica Chastain on board for their new show Animals, and why they are trying to revolutionise the way television works by using the pillowtalk of animated pigeons

One Friday night while sitting in their Bushwick apartment drawing the talking animals that would eventually become the HBO show Animals, Phil Matarese and his co-creator Mike Luciano heard a bunch of people having fun while heading to the bar. Matarese leaned over to Luciano to ask: “Why aren’t they at home working on their passion project?”

Animals, which debuts its first episode this Friday on HBO at 11.30pm Est, is a strange show, and it took an even stranger route to the television. It swerved through the indie film world, via producers Mark and Jay Duplass, in a process that could possibly upend the traditional way that most TV shows make it to air. »

Sundance Welcomes an Influx of TV Programming

20 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If this year’s unprecedented influx of TV series and the direction of the entertainment marketplace is any indication, the Sundance Film Festival may end up having to change its name.

After a few years of dabbling in episodic programming, following in the footsteps of fests like SXSW, Sundance is offering a record number of Special Events section series from the biggest names and networks in the business — including Hulu and Warner Bros. Television’s Stephen King miniseries “11.22.63” from exec producers J.J. Abrams and Bridget Carpenter, Netflix’s Chelsea Handler doc series “Chelsea Does,” CNN’s W. Kamau Bell travel series “United Shades of America” and Starz’s drama “The Girlfriend Experience” from exec producer Steven Soderbergh.

For some, like Starz CEO Chris Albrecht, the fest’s timing and his project’s pedigree (“Girlfriend” springs from Soderbergh’s 2009 Sundance-preemed feature of the same name) proved an irresistible match. “When you »
