Marti Noxon: Bravo’s ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ is ‘More Real Than Reality’

19 November 2014 11:37 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

As Bravo preps to launch its first scripted endeavor in “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” Marti Noxon and her cast could not have been more excited to talk about the show at its premiere Tuesday night at the Ace Hotel’s United Artists Theater in Downtown L.A.

The project is not just a first for Bravo, best known for its reality series — it’s also a first for Noxon. Though her name appears in credits for hits including “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Glee” and “Mad Men,” “Girlfriends’ Guide” is the first series with her name under the bill of “creator.”

“It just feels a little bit like a dream come true,” said Noxon. “How often do you get to write about real women with work problems and family problems, and they’re not a doctor or a lawyer or a cop?”

The series follows Abby McCarthy (Lisa Edelstein), a self-help »

Girlfriends Guide To Divorce: Marti Noxon and Lisa Edelstein on Bravo’s bold new dramedy

11 November 2014 2:02 PM, PST | ChannelGuideMag | See recent ChannelGuideMag news »

How you relate to Bravo’s new Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce will likely depend not on how you feel about The Big D itself, but how you feel about your own romantic connections — or lack thereof. And that’s just how the show’s creator Marti Noxon intended it. “For me, this show is much more about what it’s like to be men and women right now — and right now it’s really complicated,” says Noxon, who took over for Joss Whedon as showrunner on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, then worked with Shonda Rhimes on Private Practice, Matthew Weiner on Mad Men … Continue reading →

Bravo's ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ Ad Banned by NY, La Metro Authorities

9 November 2014 2:37 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

An advertisement for Bravo's new series “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” has been banned from city buses and subways in Los Angeles and New York because it was considered “inappropriate,” an individual with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap. The print ad (shown below) features the show's lead actress Lisa Edelstein holding up her ring finger — as she might her middle finger — with the tag line, “Go Find Yourself.” See photos: 11 TV Shows Canceled by Controversy - From 'Honey Boo Boo' to 'Politically Incorrect' Dom Camera & Company, a New York-based advertising agency which acts as Bravo's out-of-home media buyer, submitted the ad. »

Are we tired of reality TV?

31 October 2014 9:44 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

Maybe it was DC Cupcakes, because we didn’t need another cable reality show about cake bosses. Or perhaps it was the latest chronicling of blue-collar workers in Alaska or Louisiana. (Doesn’t Crawfish Catchers look tedious? And we bet you can’t even tell whether that title is real or not). Or it could have been Bravo’s seventh Real Housewives series. Or E!’s fourth Kardashians title. Whatever marked the official tipping point, it all feels familiar now: the master chefs, treasure seekers, tattoo artists, makeover experts, ghost hunters, dirty jobbers, untrained pets, C-list celebrity families, and glow-tanned bickering glambots overturning restaurant tables. »

'Scandal' appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers

17 October 2014 7:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Scandal" appears to have moved past its dependence on cliffhangers “Scandal” was written around cliffhangers in its first three seasons, but the cliffhangers have now passed on to “How To Get Away with Murder.” As Joshua Alston says of “Scandal,” "It’s no longer a political thriller with heavy-to-a-fault spy genre flourishes, it’s 'Grey’s Anatomy' in the White House. And if that’s indeed what the writers are going for, the absence of a central, hashtag-friendly mystery makes perfect sense. I’ve been suspiciously anticipating this direction, but I’m far less worried than I was. If 'Like Father, Like Daughter' is any indication, that version of Scandal would be well-worth watching, if perhaps not the Twitter fuel it once was.” Plus: “ScandalSecret Service agent talks about his big role.

30 September 2014 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

NBCUniversal is shaking up the management picture at E! Entertainment, the cabler that has been in a ratings slump as viewer interest waned in its celebrity-focused brand of unscripted series.

I'm Still Not Over... House and Cuddy's terrible relationship

28 July 2014 4:06 PM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

Some television characters just shouldn’t be together. I don’t care how much unresolved sexual tension there is or how funny the witty banter is or how much chemistry the two characters have. There are just some “will-they or won’t-they” couples who should absolutely won’t—because once you take away that conflict, the show and the two characters’ interactions become uninteresting. And this is no more truer than for Dr. Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) and Dr. Lisa Cuddy (Lisa Edelstein), whose relationship I’m still not over.
