Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce Season 2 Trailer: Are Abby and Jake Reconciling?

4 November 2015 12:35 PM, PST | | See recent news »

“Divorce can be fun,” Lisa Edelstein’s Abby declares at the start of the new Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce trailer — and if her conscious uncoupling from husband Jake involves as much cozy re-coupling as we see in the preview, we can see why she’d think so.

Season 2 of the Bravo drama picks up with self-help author Abby and her estranged hubs trying to give their marriage another go, despite her new gig (which requires her to write about the end of their union) and his big secret (his girlfriend is carrying his kid).

‘Odd Mom Out’ Renewed for Season 2 at Bravo

10 August 2015 12:12 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bravo has renewed its first scripted comedy, “Odd Mom Out,” for Season 2.

The laffer, created and exec produced by Jill Kargman (who also stars in the half-hour series), pokes fun at the ultra-wealthy society of elite cliques in New York City’s Upper East Side.

Based on her novel “Momzillas,” “Odd Mom” stars Kargman as Jill Weber, a born-and-bred Manhattanite who is well-off but seen as a charity case in the eyes of socialite-type Manhattan moms. Abby Elliott, Andy Buckley, Kk Glick, Sean Kleier and Joanna Cassidy round out the cast.

In addition to Kargman, exec producers are Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver, Tim Piper, Daniel Rosenberg, Tony Hernandez, Julie Rottenberg  and Elisa Zuritsky.

“Mom and non-mom viewers alike — from Beverly Hills to Brooklyn — have found a spirit animal in Jill Kargman’s hilarious and relatable depiction of a woman struggling to keep up,” said Lara Spotts, Svp of development for Bravo Media. »

'Batman v Superman' Introduces Tao Okamoto as Mercy Graves

28 July 2015 9:57 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Though it has been rumored for quite sometime, today we get official confirmation from DC All Access that actress Tao Okamoto is playing Mercy Graves in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The character was originally created for Superman: The Animated series back in 1996. And this is the first time she has been seen on the big screen. Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad has similar origins. Instead of springing forth from a comic book, she was created for the Batman animated series back in 1992.

Tao Okamoto was personally selected by director Zack Snyder for the role after her appearance in The Wolverine. The character can be seen in the second Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice trailer as she leads the dead body of super villain Zod through Lex Corp Industries, a hold over from Man of Steel. Early in the production process, Warner Bros. claimed that »

Mercy Graves Revealed In "Batman v Superman"

27 July 2015 8:20 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

It has been rumored and was suggested in the trailer, but now it's confirmed - Tao Okamoto will be playing Mercy Graves in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice".

A character originally created for "Superman: The Animated Series," Mercy serves as Lex Luthor's lethal bodyguard and personal assistant. Lisa Edelstein voiced the character in the animated series, whilst Cassidy Freeman's "Smallville" character Tess Mercer was heavily influenced by the role.

Warner Bros. Pictures originally claimed that "Hannibal" and "The Wolverine" star Okamoto would be playing a character created specifically for the film, but this week’s episode of DC All Access confirms Okamoto's true role.

"Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" is currently slated to hit cinemas on March 25th. »

8 TV couples who should never have got together, from Moonlighting to Doctor Who

23 July 2015 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

There are certain pairings on TV that we like to categorise as 'Be Careful What You Wish For' couples. You know what we're talking about. Two characters have such undeniable, simmering romantic chemistry that everyone, from the fans to the writers to the actors, is rooting for them to get together and make it work.

Maybe the writers drag it out for a few seasons, playing on the will-they-won't-they tension, before finally biting the bullet and putting the couple together. And when they finally do... you wish they'd never gone there.

Below are eight TV couples we were convinced we needed to see hook up, until they did.

1. Ten & Rose (Doctor Who)

Shippers, hear us out. The dynamic between Christopher Eccleston's haunted Time Lord and Billie Piper's fun, fiery Rose was a winner - not so much Will They / Won't They as an Are They / Aren't They (in love, »

Bravo Breaks Into Scripted Comedy With Jill Kargman’s ‘Odd Mom Out’

8 June 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bravo, known for glitzy “Housewives,” high-end real estate and well-to-do personalities, is expanding its slate with its first scripted comedy, “Odd Mom Out.” A sensible fit for the world the cabler’s audience already knows and loves (Bravo is the most upscale and educated ad-supported cable entertainment network among the 18-49 primetime demo), the series from exec producer and star Jill Kargman explores the upper crust in the Upper East Side.

Kargman stars as Jill Weber, a born-and-bred Manhattanite — much like herself — who’s wealthy, but poor in the eyes of her peers, better known as the “robot mom” club. The series is based on Kargman’s novel “Momzillas,” which critiques the elite cliques of New York City, where she grew up.

The first episode of the “really brash, crazy, dark comedy,”as Kargman described it, finds the mother of three feeling like an outcast for photographing her own children for their kindergarten applications, »
