Fall TV Preview: The 25 Most Anticipated New Shows of 2017

5 September 2017 10:52 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The idea of a “fall TV season” feels particularly antiquated in 2017, as two of the year’s buzziest series (“Game of Thrones” and “Twin Peaks”) have already wrapped for the year. Fall may even be a bit of an afterthought now compared to spring, as networks aim to catch Emmy voters with prestige TV premieres when campaign season gets underway.

And yet, there’s nearly 70 years of tradition with the fall TV season. It’s when Nielsen still resets the calendar for the new TV year; when blue chip advertisers like the automotive sector roll out their own new wares; football season returns (don’t discount that huge impact on TV schedules); and the weather gets chilly, which conceivably means more viewers watching TV indoors.

This year, they’ll find a lot of familiar titles on broadcast TV, including the return of NBC’s “Will & Grace”; a prequel to “The Big Bang Theory, »

September TV Premieres: 12 New Shows To Look Out For This Month

31 August 2017 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Summer TV might not be the endless field of tumbleweeds the landscape used to be a few years ago. But there’s still something about fall approaching that signals a revitalized TV world, filled with plenty of new shows and returning favorites.

We’ll have more soon on the best of what’s to come among the fall’s returning shows, but here’s a helpful overview of the new series that might be worth adding to the queue.

American Horror Story: Cult” (September 5, FX)

This newest installment of the long-running FX anthology series may not be a new show, but it’s dealing with some new subject matter. In an election-inspired season of new horrors, standbys Sarah Paulson and Evan Peters, alongside newcomers Alison Pill and Billy Eichner, tackle the dangers of a hivemind. (Did we mention there are clowns? There are also a lot of clowns.)

Superbad Was the First Movie to Use This Raunchy Curse Word

18 August 2017 5:07 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Superbad came out 10 years ago this weekend and has gone on to become a true modern comedy classic. The movie did really well at the box office, but it has really taken on a life of its own in the years since its release. The movie was written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, who have become quite the duo in Hollywood these days. In honor of the movie's 10th anniversary, Rogen took to Twitter to reveal some pretty surprising facts about Superbad. For one, it was the first movie to ever use a particular curse word.

Seth Rogen revealed several things about Superbad on Twitter recently, but no doubt, one of the most hilarious is that the movie actually has a strange claim to fame. According to him, the MPAA said that they were the first movie to ever use the term "fingerf&%k" in a movie. Here's what »

‘The Deuce’ Trailer: James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before In David Simon’s Porn Drama — Watch

10 July 2017 8:14 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Fans of “The Wire” and “Treme” are about to see David Simon and George Pelecanos in a new light when they take on the dawn of the legal porn industry in HBO’s “The Deuce,” as seen in this juicy first official teaser released today. Finally, we get to see James Franco talking to himself, and not just for his IndieWire column. We also learn more about Maggie Gyllenhaal’s character — beyond the fact of that fabulous blonde perm.

Franco plays a dual role as Vincent Martino and Frankie Martino, two twins whose Times Square bar becomes a front for the mob just when pornography becomes legalized. Set to a 1970’s soundtrack and saturated in the requisite post-pantone hues, “The Deuce” shows signs of a dark sense of humor as well. “There’s been a change in the law about community standards,” says David Krumholtz (“The Good Wife”) from behind »

Celebs React to Trump’s Plan to Pull Out of Paris Climate Deal: ‘What the Covfefe Is Wrong with This Dude?’

31 May 2017 10:41 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

No “Bull,” CBS wants you to know that the freshman Michael Weatherly series is actually the No. 1 new show of the year in total viewers, over NBC’s lauded “This Is Us.”

“We congratulate them on their success, but we like winning,” CBS senior exec VP Kelly Kahl said. He also pointed out that even CBS’ “Blue Bloods” has a larger audience than any other drama on the other networks, except “This Is Us.”
