ABC Pickups Include Comedy About African-American Donald Trump — But He’s An Unlikely Mayor, With Advisors Who Actually Help

11 May 2017 4:30 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

ABC has picked up four new series from its sister ABC Studios, including a new drama from Shonda Rhimes’ company, a drama about saving the world (starring Jason Ritter), a series about refugees… from America, and comedy that sounds like it might take a few cues from the recently installed White House inhabitant.

In “The Mayor,” Brandon Micheal Hall plays an aspiring young rapper, Courtney Rose, who decides – as a publicity stunt – to run for mayor. He did it solely to generate buzz and become rich and famous. Instead, he is actually elected mayor, an outcome he never predicted. Now he must lean on his mother (Yvette Nicole Brown) and friends, including Valentina (Lea Michele) to become the mayor he didn’t think he wanted to be.

Sound a bit Trumpy?

The series also stars Bernard David Jones and Marcel Spears. Executive producers include Daveed Diggs (Broadway’s “Hamilton”), writer Jeremy Bronson (“Speechless, »

Exclusive interview: Supernatural’s David Haydn-Jones on what’s beneath the psychotic layers of Mr. Ketch

13 April 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Monsters and Critics | See recent Monsters and Critics news »

The CW’s Supernatural series has been knocking it out the park for the last 12 years and has brought us a colourful collection of quirky characters. One character in particular has stood out from all the others this year — the psychotic, stone-cold killer that is Arthur Ketch. Mr. Ketch, played by the fantastic David Haydn-Jones, was introduced early on in the season as a phantom motorcycle-riding assassin for The Men Of Letters.

‘Supernatural’ Producer on the Winchesters Being ‘Domestic Terrorists,’ Lucifer’s Baby

26 January 2017 12:53 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Winchesters have had a lot on their plate so far in Season 12. Lucifer is loose and free — hopping from vessel to vessel as he pleases — the British Men of Letters have taken it upon themselves to sort out the American chapter, which really just means Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), and the cherry on top is that the boys’ mom Mary (Samantha Smith) is back from the dead thanks to the Darkness.

To pile on even more, December’s midseason finale ended with the Winchesters being arrested by federal agents for endangering the President of the United States — who was possessed by Lucifer at the time — and one of the President’s aides on the run, pregnant with the devil’s child. That’s a whole lot to deal with.

Variety spoke with executive producer Andrew Dabb about Sam and Dean’s continued trouble with the law, baby »
