Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor is, of course, thrilled simply to be nominated for an Emmy once again. But he does hope that if he wins again this year, the TV cameras find his wife in the audience and not - like last time - a total stranger. "If luck comes my way, we'll try not to do what we did last year," Tambor told People at Saturday's annual BAFTA Los Angeles TV Tea, recalling how his wife of 15 years, actress Kasia Ostlun, had taken an ill-timed restroom break just before his category came up during the ceremony.

Netflix’s Flaked Renewed For Season 2

30 July 2016 7:09 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite its paltry reviews and failure to register with mainstream audiences, Flaked is getting another season on Netflix, the streaming service confirmed on social media.

Posting on Flaked‘s official Facebook page, Netflix wrote, “We’re headed back to Venice for #Flaked Season 2. Can we stay in your guest house?” A return date for the second season was listed simply as 2017.

The series, set in the insular California city of Venice, follows Chip (Arnett) as he struggles with the deterioration of his image and sobriety even while falling for the beautiful London (Ruth Kearney) despite the rift this creates between him and his best friend, Dennis (David Sullivan).

It’s been well-established that Netflix doesn’t exactly operate by typical cable-network laws. Its pricey historical epic Marco Polo was far from the Game of Thrones-style smash that the streaming service had clearly hoped it would be, yet it was »

Arrested Development” fans anxiously waiting for Season 5 may be in for a bonus treat: A complete remix of 2013’s Season 4 now exists.

“Arrested” creator Mitch Hurwitz has gone in and totally re-cut the show’s inaugural Netflix season, something that has been hinted at in the past – but is now done. Originally produced as 15 episodes of varying time lengths (between 31 minutes and 38 minutes), the new edit is now more like a traditional TV season, made up of 22 episodes at 22 minutes each.

Besides the length change, Hurwitz re-edited the show to put all of the show’s characters in each episode. Originally, each episode of Season 4 mostly focused on an individual character’s journey.

“It really works!” Hurwitz said. “It’s totally different storytelling with all of these millions of pieces.”
