Season two of “Odd Mom Out” earlier this year averaged about 1.1 million viewers. It’s part of Bravo’s push into scripted programming that began two years ago with the launch of Lisa Edelstein starrer “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Andy Buckley, Kk Glick, Sean Kleier and Joanna Cassidy co-star with Kargman »

‘Homeland’s’ Lesli Linka Glatter and ‘UnReal’s’ Marti Noxon on the Challenges of Writing & Directing in Peak TV

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

Amping up the drama on television is no easy feat, with viewer expectations rising amid increased competition across manifold platforms. Lesli Linka Glatter has become “Homeland’s” go-to director — she earned her third Emmy nomination for helming the episode that saw Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) protect Otto During from a terrorist attack in a refugee camp. And Marti Noxon, now juggling multiple projects include the upcoming drama “Sharp Objects” at HBO, earned her Emmy nod (alongside Sarah Gertrude Shapiro) for the pilot of “UnReal” which exposed the manipulations that drive reality television.

Lesli, you’re the only female nominee in your category. Marti, aside from Michelle King (“The Good Wife”), you and Sarah are the only female nominees. Why are we still having this conversation?

Lesli Linka Glatter: Oh my god, I wish we weren’t in 2016 we have the first female presidential candidate. I tell you, if you would have asked me when I started »

‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ to End After Five Seasons on Bravo

5 August 2016 12:35 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Bravo’s “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce” will be ending after five seasons, Variety has confirmed.

No, you didn’t blink and miss a few seasons of the Lisa Edelstein dramedy: Only two have aired—Season 2 finished its run in February—but Bravo gave the Universal Cable Productions series a three-season renewal back in April. Now, creator Marti Noxon says those five seasons will be the full run of the series. The three seasons coming down the pike will total 19 episodes: Season 3 will have seven, and Seasons 4 and 5 will have six. The show will shoot all the episodes in one go in Vancouver.

Doling out multi-season renewals is one way cable nets have fought back against streaming outlets like Netflix, which have raided traditional talent larders with the promises of multiple seasons and what cable execs like FX’s John Landgraf have called “shock-and-awe levels of money and commitment.” Another way is by renewing shows before they’ve »

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama

2 June 2016 3:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Last year, Viola Davis made history as the first African-American woman to win the lead actress prize, and she could well repeat this year for her searing work on “How to Get Away With Murder.” With the exception of Elisabeth Moss, whose “Mad Men” ended its on-air run last year, Davis’ competition is likely to be the same: Claire Danes (“Homeland”), Taraji P. Henson (“Empire”), Tatiana Maslany (“Orphan Black”) and Robin Wright (“House of Cards”).

Or, voters could choose to recognize Julianna Margulies, who has already won twice for “The Good Wife” — most recently in 2014 ­­— yet wasn’t even nominated last year. With the series finale still fresh in voter’s minds, they would be wise to reward Margulies for her seven seasons of remarkable work. Along those lines, Michelle Dockery, nominated in 2012, 2013 and 2014 for “Downton Abbey,” could slip back in now that the show has ended.

Bravo Super-Renews ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’

13 April 2016 6:12 PM, PDT | | See recent AreYouScreening news »

Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce ended its second season in February with season high ratings, and that’s apparently all Bravo needed to know.

The show is not just solid fun, but it continues to build on the scripts from the first season, and weave an entertaining story that pulls audiences along. In our era of a million shows, those that get better and better are rare, and apparently Bravo agrees.

While most fans are spending renewal season wondering if their new and old favorites are going to come back, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has been renewed for three seasons. It is becoming more and more common for certain networks to do strange things, like renewing shows for a second season before the first airs, but this is a pretty serious vote of confidence.

I imagine that a year from now it isn’t impossible for Bravo to say, “well… wait a minute, »
