Is April 2017 Promising To Be One of TV’s Greatest Ever Months?

25 February 2017 7:02 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Yes. That’s the short answer to the question posed above, but if you would like some form of explanation then please, do keep reading.

TV has frustrated me endlessly in recent years. 2016 saw a downward trend as it pertained to the medium’s quality. The golden age had ended, led by the utter mediocrity of AMC, and the tide of entertainment that had crushed film under its weight was starting to recede. There were bright spots of course; Stranger Things was impossible not to like, Westworld was fascinating, and returning shows like Game of Thrones, Better Call Saul, and Bloodline continued to be series of sublime quality.

2017 has started off infinitely stronger than last year with regards to new series. Legion is a visually grand and downright scary affair, Santa Clarita Diet scratches an itch for those wanting a Weeds/Dexter mash up (though that may be a house »

Last Week’S Podcast: ‘Doubt’ Producers on Their Show’s Transgender Breakthrough – IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Dan Bucatinsky has one of the more interesting careers in television – an actor, writer, producer who can’t be pigeonholed into one category. Bucatinsky might be best known as playing James Novak on ABC’s “Scandal,” which earned him a Primetime Emmy Award in 2013, or from “The Comeback,” the HBO series that took a nearly 10-year break between seasons.

But he’s also a successful TV producer, having partnered in 2003 with Lisa Kudrow to launch the production company Is or Isn’t Entertainment. Together, they’ve been behind “The Comeback,” the digital series “Web Therapy” (which eventually ended up on Showtime), and the reality series “Who Do You Think You Are?” on TLC.

Now, Bucatinsky is one of the stars of Fox’s “24: Legacy,” the reboot of the popular “24” franchise that »

‘The Detour’ Review: Season 2 Switches Drivers, Keeps Pushing the Boundaries of Family Comedy

21 February 2017 7:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Even after Season 1, it was clear “The Detour” was a deceptive title. Though Nate Parker’s seemingly impulsive but truly diabolical decision to drive (rather than fly) the family from Syracuse, New York to Florida pushed the exceedingly wild story forward, the altered route wasn’t really the focus of a family comedy unraveling more mysteries than most soap operas. Week after week as the Parkers made their lengthy journey south, and new secrets were unveiled about Nate (Jason Jones), Robin (Natalie Zea), and their two kids, Delilah (Ashley Gerasimovich) and Jared (Liam Carroll).

But the titular detour wasn’t the road trip itself, nor was it what was uncovered because of it. “The Detour’s” larger purpose was to take us on a trip out of our comfort zone. The TBS original is built to deconstruct our understanding of family comedies and family dynamics in general.

Why ‘La La Land’ Was So Much Harder to Edit Than ‘Whiplash’

21 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

From an editing perspective, there couldn’t be two films more different than Damien Chazelle’s “Whiplash” and his “La La Land.” While both feature musical performances, “La La Land” is anchored by gliding, well-choreographed musical numbers, while “Whiplash” is driven by hard-pounding percussive cutting, for which editor Tom Cross won the Oscar for Best Editing.

“The thing with ‘Whiplash’ is we could always point to needing to keep up a certain amount of brutality and tension and suspense and velocity,” said editor Tom Cross who, along with Damien Chazelle, was recently a guest on IndieWire’s Filmmaker Toolkit Podcast. “We didn’t really have that to fall back on with ‘La La Land.'”

What Makes TV ‘Very Good’ in 2017? Damon Lindelof, Aya Cash, The Cast of ‘Casual’ and More Share Insights

20 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If television were a universe, it would be the Marvel universe: so large and loosely tied together, it’s kinda scary.

But within that universe lies more treasures than Thor has in all of Asgard. Comedy, drama, limited series, films, variety shows, talk shows — and those are just Emmy categories. Television provides challenging ongoing narratives like “The Leftovers” and momentary blips of brilliance (like this). Moreover, television opens doors to new worlds and provides revealing facts about the ones we already know. It’s a medium of great power and untapped potential. Television is very good, in many, many different ways.

So to celebrate the 100th episode of IndieWire’s Very Good Television Podcast, co-hosts Ben Travers (IndieWire TV Critic) and Liz Shannon Miller (IndieWire’s TV Editor) reached out to a few of their favorite influential people working in television today.

Here's What to Expect From the Final Season of The Leftovers

17 February 2017 10:30 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

There are two kinds of people in this mixed-up, TV-watching world we live in: those who powered through the first season of The Leftovers and were rewarded with an immensely nuanced second season, and those who gave up after a few episodes (or never cared in the first place). Those of us in the former group have been waiting a year to find out what happens to the Garvey family after the bonkers season two finale, and now we've finally got some answers on what to expect from the third - and final - season. The End Is Nigh The second-season finale would have been a perfectly acceptable ending for The Leftovers, but HBO is giving us one final season before we say goodbye for good. There's a New Setting Season one of The Leftovers takes place in New York, while the second season is mostly set in Texas. The »

Humanity's Final Departure in The Leftovers Season 3 Trailer

17 February 2017 9:42 AM, PST | QuietEarth.us | See recent QuietEarth news »

The Leftovers' final season has finally received a a premiere date of Sunday, April 16 and I for one can't wait to check out the end of the show.

Last season saw Damon Lindelof doing some of his best work to date ("International Assassin" anyone?) and most people who watched the show agree it's now one of the cable network's most interesting shows.

Synopsis:

This season finds the Garvey and Murphy families coming together as they desperately grasp for a system of belief to help better explain that which defies explanation.

The world is crackling with the energy of something big about to happen, a corresponding bookend to the Sudden Departure that sent them all spinning years earlier, bringing their journey Down Under.

‘The Leftovers’ Season 3 Trailer: One of the Best Shows on TV Returns More Nihilistic Than Ever

17 February 2017 8:38 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

HBO has released a new teaser for the final season of its cult hit “The Leftovers,” and it’s every bit as provocative as the show’s explosive second season.

The third and final season of the wrenching drama heads down under. Series creator Damon Lindelof (“Lost”) told Entertainment Weekly of the decision: “Australia is the end the world geographically, and our show is about the end of the world emotionally.” “The Leftovers” is based on a book by series co-creator Tom Perrotta, whose previous novel inspired Alexander Payne’s “Election.”

Damon Lindelof on the chances of a Lost revival or reboot

26 January 2017 9:56 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With an ever-growing list of old TV shows returning to our screens for new seasons, Entertainment Weekly caught up with Damon Lindelof, executive producer of Lost, to see if there’s been any talk of a return to the mysterious island for a revival of the ABC hit.

“Those characters not only died, but we showed you their experience post-death,” said Lindelof. “Any new take on Lost will probably have to feature new characters, as it should. As it relates to Lost, which was so heavily serialized, I do think it’s somewhat of a betrayal to go back in and say there’s more story to tell that I just came up with now, especially when we had ample time to end it on our own terms.”

While a revival looks off the cards, Lindelof left the door wide open for a reboot of the show, adding that: “[Executive producer] Carlton Cuse »

The Leftovers Season 3 First Look: This End Is Near

24 January 2017 12:35 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If The Leftovers Season 3 can come anywhere close to the amazement that was brought forth with The Leftovers Season 2, we're in for a treat.

The Season 3 poster, the first photo and first teaser are already piquing interest.

The double entendre is appreciated here. 

Not only do we know the end is near for the the series itself, but it's a question that has been posed within the story since it was first introduced.

Who are the leftovers, and why were they left behind? Behind for what? And where did their loved ones go in the blink of an eye?

The Peabody Award-winning drama series is created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta.

Considering where Lindelof has been in the past with Lost, all eyes will be on him to see if we'll get an ambiguous ending to The Leftovers or something more concrete.
