High Maintenance: HBO's Potent New Comedy Delivers More Than Laughs

16 September 2016 8:30 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

With a runtime of 33 minutes, HBO’s High Maintenance premiere is roughly four times longer than any of the episodes in the web series from which it spawned — and we’re happy to report that it’s time well spent.

Unlike the webseries, which focused on one customer per episode, HBO sends the show’s leading man — an unnamed pot dealer played by Ben Sinclair, who also writes and directs the episodes with Katja Blichfeld — on multiple deliveries, as seen in Friday’s “series” premiere.

Sweet dreams are… definitely not made of these gorgeous, disturbing images featured in Westworld‘s latest trailer.

The new “Dreams” promo for HBO’s hotly anticipated sci-fi drama (posted above) offers a closer look at what visitors encounter when they arrive at the high-tech theme park: a stunningly detailed recreation of the Old West, with lifelike robots offering the chance to engage in authentic gunfights — and even a wild whorehouse orgy.

Vince Gilligan developing Jim Jones limited series for HBO

10 September 2016 10:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Vince Gilligan, creator of Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, is set to explore The Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ cult and its leader Jim Jones with Raven, a limited series which he will write for HBO. Breaking Bad director Michelle MacLaren will helm the series, as well as executive producing alongside Gilligan and actress Octavia Spencer.

Based on Tim Reiterman’s book Raven: The Untold Story of Jim Jones and His People – which is described as “the definitive history of Peoples Temple from its idealistic beginnings to its terrible end in Jonestown” – the series “will focus on Jim Jones but also on his followers, who, by and large, were ordinary people of good will. It tells the mysterious story of how so many of them came to give up their lives for this man.”

Jones was the founder and leader of the Peoples Temple, which once boasted over 20,000 members, »

Breaking Bad Duo To Develop A Jonestown Miniseries

9 September 2016 3:12 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

If you wondered what would be next on the agenda for the Breaking Bad team of Vince Gilligan and Michelle MacLaren, wonder no longer. The duo are reuniting for a miniseries about the Jonestown massacre for HBO.

The new series will be based on the book Raven: The Untold Story of the Rev. Jim Jones and His People, by Tim Reiterman, a journalist who actually survived the events in Jonestown, Guyana. Jim Jones was the leader of the Peoples Temple, a splinter group whose commune in Jonestown was eventually the site of a mass suicide of cult members. The book takes the reader through the formation of the Peoples Temple through to the deaths at Jonestown, looking at the personality of Jim Jones, the people who followed him, and his encouragement that they kill themselves by drinking cyanide-laced Flavor Aid. We can assume that the new HBO miniseries will follow »

Breaking Bad Creator Developing HBO Series About The Jonestown Massacre

9 September 2016 2:42 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

JIm Jones, Jonestown cult leader.

If you've ever fallen down a rabbit hole of awfulness online, then chances are you've stumbled on the Jonestown Massacre, a particularly horrific incident in human history. I'll give you the cliff notes version. Jim Jones was the head of a religious organization known as the Peoples Temple of the Disciples of Christ. This group preached socialism and racial equality, and in 1978, became notorious when Jones and over 900 of his members (including 276 children) committed mass suicide in Guyana. Since that time, there has been evidence to prove that at least some of those "suicides" -- especially those including the children -- were actually murders, but that's neither here nor there.

According to Variety, Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and Breaking Bad director and executive producer Michelle MacLaren are developing a limited HBO series (along with Sony Pictures) based on the Jonestown Massacre. The series will be entitled Raven, »

'Breaking Bad' creator Vince Gilligan is making an HBO series about Jim Jones

9 September 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

True Confession: after gobbling up all five seasons of Breaking Bad, I have yet to check out Better Call Saul, which I hear is excellent. I'm getting around to it! Alas, there's just too much good TV out there, and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan unfortunately isn't helping. Case in point: Gilligan is now developing a limited series about cult leader Jim Jones with his Breaking Bad exec-producer Michelle MacLaren, who directed several of the AMC series' greatest episodes. (It's also being executive produced by Oscar-winning actress Octavia Spencer.) There is literally no way I'm not watching this.  Titled Raven, the series will trace the origins of Jones's religious movement The Peoples Temple through its horrific end in November 1978, when 918 members of the group, including 276 children, died in a mass murder/suicide at their Jonestown settlement in northwestern Guyana. Prior to the massacre, United States Congressman Leo Ryan -- »

9 September 2016 11:55 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It’s now almost three years since “Breaking Bad” ended, and it’s perhaps fair to say that its creator, Vince Gilligan has mostly stayed within his wheelhouse. Since ending the show that made him famous, Gilligan’s only projects have been ‘Bad’ spin-off “Better Call Saul” (which is, we should emphasize, excellent), and the short-lived cop drama […]

The organization eventually moved to California, spreading throughout the state. Under intense media scrutiny, Jones and many of his followers fled to a settlement in Guyana in 1977. On Nov. 18, 1978, members of the Peoples Temple killed Rep. Leo »

Emmys 2016: 20 Must-See Episodes to Watch Before Awards Night

1 September 2016 11:30 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

TV: now more than ever! With online-streaming platforms firing on all cylinders, cable upstarts making their name in the game, and networks clawing at one another for viewership, there's an embarrassment of riches on the tube — and this year's lineup of Emmy nominees fully reflects that. In terms of sheer numbers, it's a lot to manage. Squeezing in all the Best Picture Oscar nominees every year? Solidly doable. Committing to two dozen full seasons of television? We hope you have stock in Visine and aren't big on that whole "sleep" thing. »

AMC’s Decline Isn’t Complicated, It’s Just Bad TV

20 August 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Samuel Brace on the decline of AMC…

I am old enough to remember when AMC, back in the day — that day being five minutes ago — were at the top of the TV ladder. There was a time when they unequivocally ruled the roost, when all competition bowed before them. After Mad Men‘s debut in 2007, a golden streak of AMC television was bestowed upon us, resulting in an equally wonderful golden age of television. Mad Men became a sensation, the best show on TV, and then Breaking Bad followed a year later to surpass it, the Vince Gilligan powerhouse becoming The greatest show of all time, a picture of how TV should be made, of how TV has to be made. Then, two years after Bad‘s premiere, we were given The Walking Dead — it was a good show back then — a quality drama that pulled in huge numbers for the zombie survival series. »

Emmy Awards: There’s Plenty of Drama in the Drama Race

18 August 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

When did drama become the underdog?

Traditionally the most prestigious category at the Emmys, somewhere along the line, drama lost a bit of heat.

The culprit: Those clever folks over at Team Comedy, who stole the spotlight thanks to the emergence of new bold, risk-taking, subversive voices (“Master of None,” “Black-ish”).

Also guilty of a bit of momentum theft: Team Limited Series. It’s hard to compete with the star power lured by the promise of 10-and-out (“The People v. O.J. Simpson,” “The Night Manager”). No series commitment necessary.

But don’t sell drama short. Even in the post “Mad Men,” “Breaking Bad” era, there’s still plenty of high-quality drama being made on television. From big-budget battles to intricate spy craft to emotional wallops, the seven drama contenders offer powerful storytelling, compelling narratives, stellar acting — and yes, even a few laughs.

Emmy-Nominated Drama Creatives Discuss Submitted Episodes

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

Each Emmy nominated drama series is asked to submit six episodes from their eligible season to serve as a sample of their work. Variety asked creatives behind each nominated series to discuss the decisions that went into those submissions.

The Americans (FX)

“We wanted to go with some sense of momentum in picking mostly [the season’s] later episodes, and one early on that had a big moment and set the table for what was to come,” says executive producer Joel Fields of putting episodes four, seven, eight, nine, 12, and 13 of season four before Emmy voters. “We very quickly settled on four of the six, and in choosing the final two it then became about thinking through, ‘Do we want to go more for flow, for favorite episodes?’ And we picked one early and one later to give a sense of the whole season,” says series creator Joe Weisberg.

Better Call Saul (AMC)
