Who's the Boss? Reunion! Tony Danza and Judith Light Come Together at Broadway Opening of Disgraced

23 October 2014 8:10 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Tony and Angela back together again! Who's the Boss? stars Tony Danza and Judith Light had a mini reunion on Thursday night when they attended the opening night of the Broadway show Disgraced at the Lyceum Theatre in New York City. The two former co-stars from the '80s ABC series, who were each dressed conservatively in black blazers, wrapped their arms around each other and flashed their smiles for the cameras. Of course, there are three very important people missing from this photo: Samantha (Alyssa Milano), Jonathan (Danny Pintauro) and Mona (Katherine Helmond). It seems like Light has been keeping up with all of her Broadway shows. Just last night she tweeted, "What a nite in the theatre! »

Amazon's Transparent Is the Best New Show You're Not Watching

11 October 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Amazon has been experimenting with original programming for a couple of seasons now, but for the first time, it has a critical darling on its hands in Transparent. The full first season landed on Amazon Prime on Sept. 26 (the first episode is free; the rest you have to be a Prime subscriber to watch), and it's already gotten enough buzz to warrant a renewal for season two. This is not only because of its subject matter - a transgender woman and her family - but also because of the performances, characters, and storytelling, which make it one of the most talked-about new shows of the season. It's daring and real. It's also addictive, and this is coming from someone who went in planning to only watch the pilot and spent the next five hours glued to the screen devouring the whole thing. Jeffrey Tambor's performance as Maura (formerly Mort »

Remembering Superman Reeve Ten Years After His Death

10 October 2014 5:50 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Christopher Reeve: 'Superman' and his movies (photo: Christopher Reeve in 'Superman' 1978) Christopher Reeve, Superman in four movies from 1978 to 1987, died ten years ago today. In 1995, while taking part in a cross-country horse race in Culpeper, Virginia, Reeve was thrown off his horse, hitting his head on the top rail of a jump; the near-fatal accident left him paralyzed from the neck down. He ultimately succumbed to heart failure at age 52 on October 10, 2004. Long before he was cast as Superman aka Clark Kent, the Manhattan-born (as Christopher D'Olier Reeve on September 25, 1952), Cornell University and Juillard School for Drama alumnus was an ambitious young actor whose theatrical apprenticeship included, while still a teenager, some time as an observer at London's Old Vic and Paris' Comédie Française. At age 23, he landed his first Broadway role in a production of Enid Bagnold's A Matter of Gravity, starring Katharine Hepburn. »

‘Transparent’ Season 1 is an audacious, fully-realized piece of television

9 October 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Transparent, Season 1

Created by Jill Soloway

Released on September 26, 2014 by Amazon Studios

I imagine my feelings after finishing Transparent’s incredible first season were much like many people’s feelings after Orange is the New Black premiered. It is wholly original and seems to exist as a result of the ways online streaming has opened up the medium of television to previously unrepresented characters. I was enamored both with the show’s characters and the way it approached issues of gender identity and sexuality. I needed to keep binge watching.

Transparent follows the Pfefferman clan, a tightly knit Jewish family living in Los Angeles, as their lives are changed by one member’s brave announcement. Maura (Jeffrey Tambor) comes out to her family as a woman, despite being their father and going by the name Mort for all of their lives. Pfefferman matriarch Shelly (Judith Light) confronts this new knowledge »

Amazon Orders Second Season Of Transparent

9 October 2014 7:15 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Even with major networks pulling out ambitious series like Gotham and Gracepoint, the only new show that people are really talking about isn’t on television at all. Amazon’s hilarious, deeply affecting Transparent, which stars Jeffrey Tambor as Mort/Maura Pfefferman, a man transitioning to become a woman, is by all accounts the biggest breakout of the fall. And now, the tech giant has opted to order a second season, which will air in 2015.

A second season of the Jill Soloway-created series, which also stars Amy Landecker, Jay Duplass, Gaby Hoffmann and Judith Light, was a no-brainer given the reception and ratings. Transparent holds the distinctions of being both the number one ranked and most binge-watched TV series on Prime Instant Video.

Amazon Studios vice-president Roy Price released an official statement, saying:

“We are absolutely thrilled that the response to Transparent has been so positive. Our goal is »

Jill Soloway on Writing, 'Transparent', and What She Wishes She Knew Then

30 September 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

Jill Soloway got her start at a scrappy theater company in her hometown of Chicago, where she and her older sister, Faith, put on shows like “Miss Vagina Pageant” and “The Real Life Brady Bunch.” 

Their Brady Bunch show became a cult hit in the 90s, expanding to NYC and La, where Jill ended up breaking into TV writing with an episode of the Steve Harvey Show. A few years later, she was writing for another cult hit, Six Feet Under, which earned her three Emmy nominations.

But for many years, the story she’s wanted to tell is that of a family wrestling with the big topics of love, sex, gender and identity. It is the story that became Transparent, which has landed on the top of critics’ list for fall TV shows.

Back in February, before the release of her pilot for Transparent, Hollywonk asked Soloway a few »

Jeffrey Tambor: Amazon's Transparent Is Part of a Civil-Rights 'Revolution' (and Funny, Too)

26 September 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Don’t be afraid of Transparent, Amazon’s new comedy about a 70-year-old transgender woman breaking the news of her late-in-life gender transition to her three children and ex-wife.

Series star Jeffrey Tambor says that while the dramedy from writer Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) is “unlike anything you’ve seen on television before,” his character Maura (formerly Mort) Pfefferman is totally relatable.

'Transparent' Premieres Today! "Best New Fall Show" - Time, EW, Huffington Post, HitFix

25 September 2014 2:17 PM, PDT | Hollywonk | See recent Hollywonk news »

It’s been just eight months since viewers helped greenlight the pilot with their passionate reviews, and today, the entire first season of Transparent finally makes its much-anticipated debut on Prime Instant Video.  

The 10-episode half hour series, which stars Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffman (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), explores family, identity, sex, and love through the story of the Pfeffermans, a Los Angeles family forced to deal with their long-held secrets together. 

Critical reception for the series has been overwhelmingly positive, with critics from several major outlets recommending it as the best new fall TV show, including Time and Entertainment Weekly:

Transparent has the beginnings of a transformative, transcendent, transporting story of a person, a family–and a culture–going through a transformation.” – James Poniewozik, Time

“Beautiful, funny and touching…One of those rare shows that alters the complexion of the landscape with its quality. »

The Fall, Friday Night Dinner, Dallas: Tube Talk Q&A

25 September 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It's another outing for the Tube Talk Q&A - jam-packed as ever with the latest news, UK air-dates, teasers and scoop!

Once you're done reading this week's edition, please leave your newest telly-related queries below - and your words of praise too. We're all terrible, vainglorious egotists here at Digital Spy.

Any news on Sky Living showing season 3 of Chicago Fire?

Even though new episodes of Chicago Fire started airing this week in the Us, there's still no official word from Sky on when the crew of Firehouse 51 will return to the UK.

However, in previous years Sky Living has been a little under a month behind NBC - so we'd expect Chicago Fire to return to the schedules in mid-to-late October.

Just try and avoid the mahoosive spoilers circulating the interwebs - the news of who survived that explosion (and who didn't) is out there!

Review: Amazon's 'Transparent' clearly the best new show of the fall

24 September 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Are you saying you're going to start dressing up like a lady all the time?" Sarah asks her father, who stands before her in full feminine dress, hair and makeup. "My whole life, I've been dressing up like a man," her father explains. "This is me." This is the key conversation at the heart of "Transparent," the great new series — which couldn't be more timely in subject matter, form or distribution — that Amazon is debuting on Friday morning. (You can already watch the pilot here.) To Sarah Pfefferman (Amy Landecker), this is her father Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) standing before her in drag; to her father — who prefers to be called Maura — Mort Pfefferman was always the disguise. "Transparent" comes at a tipping point for social awareness of transgender issues. Earlier this year, the editors at Grantland took a pounding across the internet for publishing a story that outed a trans »

Transparent,” follows the Pfefferman family as father Mort (Jeffrey Tambor) finds who he really is, and transitions to Maura, “but really it’s a story about everyone in the family,” said Jay Duplass, who plays middle child Josh. “And everyone is undergoing a massive sort of evolution so, five different family members, very different types of people, and there’s something in there for everybody.”
