Fran Drescher is back on television after spending many years as The Nanny. On Happily Divorced, she's playing Fran Lovett, a Los Angeles florist whose husband Peter (John Michael Higgins) comes out of the closet after 18 years of marriage. They amicably divorce but, because of the economy, they must continue to live together in their house. Fran is back on the singles scene and so is her ex-husband. The TV Land sitcom also features the talents of Tichina Arnold, Rita Moreno, Valente Rodriguez, Robert Walden, and D.W. Moffett.
Happily Divorced was renewed for a second season of 12 episodes and those started airing in March. TV Land later increased that order to 24 installments and the remaining 12 are expected to air sometime this fall.

And now for something different. I'm definitely not within ABC Family's target demographic, but I've fallen head over heels in love with the cable network's drama Switched at Birth, which is a profound and reflective exploration of communication, identity, and self-expression. Over at The Daily Beast, you can read my latest feature, entitled "Switched at Birth: ABC Family’s Groundbreaking Deaf/Hearing Drama," in which I take a look at the teen soap, which explores self-expression and the communication gulf between the hearing and deaf communities, and talk to creator Lizzy Weiss and stars Katie Leclerc, Sean Berdy, and Marlee Matlin. When Marlee Matlin walked away with an Academy Award for her heart-wrenching turn as a deaf custodian in 1986’s romantic drama Children of a Lesser God, it seemed as though film had finally encountered a definitive depiction of a deaf individual and the often tenuous relationship between »

The Normal Heart, Larry Kramer's semi-autobiographical off-Broadway play about a New Yorker confronted with AIDS in the early years of the pandemic, has been a perennial "movie project." In the last couple of decades, Oscar winners Barbra Streisand and John Schlesinger have at some point in time announced they were going to tackle it, but to date no film version of The Normal Heart has reached the production stages. [Photo: Matt Bomer.] Now, enter Glee creator and movie director Ryan Murphy (Running with Scissors, Eat Pray Love), who optioned the film rights to the play last summer following its Broadway revival success: The Normal Heart won Tonys for Best Revival, Best Supporting Actor (John Benjamin Hickey), and Best Supporting Actress (Ellen Barkin). Murphy apparently hasn't been sitting idly. According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Normal Heart already has a cast: Eat Pray Love's Julia Roberts (who'll next be seen as the »

Are you Team Bay or Team Daphne? Who do You think Emmett should be with? Tensions between the Kenish and Vasquez families were still running high on the Jan. 3 winter premiere of ABC Family's Switched At Birth -- and it seemed like all of their feuds could be traced back to everyone's favorite deadbeat dad, Angelo (Gilles Marini)! Regina (Constance Marie) tried to convince John (D.W. Moffett) to let Bay (Vanessa Marano) spend time with Angelo alone, but her plan backfired when John suggested that she tag along instead. Needless to say, this caused some tension between Regina and Daphne (Katie Leclerc), who's still furious with Angelo for walking out on her when she was little. If you predicted that Regina, Bay and Angelo's night out at the jazz club would be super awkward, then feel free to pat yourself on the back. Because it was super awkward. Not »
