1 July 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

If there’s one thing to take away from this collection of Scream Queens cast portraits — besides Ryan Murphy’s penchant for casting gorgeous humans — let it be this: There are so many characters on this show.

Granted, if you’re planning to pick people off one by one, it’s probably wise to begin with a healthy stable of victims. And the stars of Fox’s horror-anthology series, premiering Sept. 22 at 8/7c, are certainly looking healthy.

How Premium Cable Led the Charge for Realistic Gay Characters

30 June 2015 10:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

If cultural progress for gay rights has tilted toward mainstreaming of characters via network television — with gradual acceptance reflected by a surplus of gay best friends, usually devoid of any onscreen love lives — pay cable emerged as the arena where gays could go for honest and open depictions of their experiences.

HBO, not surprisingly, was a trailblazer in this area, both in the movie and documentary arena. “And the Band Played On,” in 1993, explored the sad history of indifference toward AIDS, becoming the first prong of what amounted to a trilogy, each spaced by roughly a decade: “Angels in America” in 2003, and “The Normal Heart” last year. Many of the best pay-tv movies devoted to the topic were true stories, telling tales of pain and tragedy, a la Showtime’s “Soldier’s Girl.”

The most memorable series — a form where the audience has more time to bond with characters — generally arrived only this century, »

Max Landis And Nick Antosca Ready To Scare With Channel Zero

30 June 2015 10:36 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Chronicle writer Max Landis already has one big horror project on the way, with Victor Frankenstein, based on his script, landing later this year. He’s now teaming up with Hannibal TV writer Nick Antosca for Channel Zero, described as a new scary anthology show. The series will be based at the Us SyFy channel and aims to model itself roughly on American Horror Story by telling one narrative across each season. But unlike Ryan Murphy’s series, Channel Zero – in its first season at least – will be based on an existing story, in this case Kris Straub’s Candle Cove. It spins a yarn about a mysterious 1980s children’s TV series, the show’s role in a string of murders and one man’s dark secret.Straub’s story originated online as part of the communal creepypasta project, where users share tales and generally try to terrify the »

30 June 2015 7:43 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

“Our goal is to show you the behind-the-scenes mechanizations of crimes, stuff that you didn’t know... When I read the scripts, I didn’t know half the stuff [that occurred]. I’m like, ‘That happened?

TV Review: ‘Larry Kramer In Love & Anger’

29 June 2015 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The timing couldn’t be better for HBO’s premiere of the documentary “Larry Kramer In Love & Anger.” Although it bowed at Sundance earlier this year, the commercial debut now follows the landmark Scotus decision legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide. It’s a turn of events that tireless gay rights activist Kramer could only have dreamt of, and adds an extra layer of poignancy to a rather straightforward, if frequently stirring, doc.

In looking back at Kramer’s life and legacy, with a particular focus on his work raising awareness for AIDS victims and the need for research during the ’80s, “Love & Anger” covers much of the same ground already dramatized in Kramer’s autobiographical play “The Normal Heart,” which memorably reached screens on the cabler just a little over a year ago.

That gives the directorial debut of Kramer pal Jean Carlomusto a feeling of “been there, heard that” for »

NBC’s Bob Greenblatt Celebrates ‘Courageous’ Writers, Producers Displaying Gay Storylines

29 June 2015 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Milestones only feel monumental when you get some perspective, and you look back and see some of the tremors that started to pave the way for a seismic shift. The Supreme Court decision is a stunning victory for human rights and equality, but the big shift happened with the American people over the past few years, and there’s no putting the genie back in the bottle.

I feel privileged to work in a business where we can advance the political agenda just because we tell stories. No soapbox, no demonstrations, no voting. If a story moves you, the message gets sent, and the consciousness changes. Sometimes slowly, but it happens.

Over the past 40 years, the Lgbt social and political agenda has been moving forward in our pop culture in many ways, especially on good old-fashioned broadcast television, which reaches everybody, everywhere. Back in the ’70s, I remember Archie Bunker »

Best TV Episodes of 2015 (So Far): Individual Picks

27 June 2015 7:01 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While there are a number of excellent television episodes that aired during the first half of the year, not all of them made our list, due to a number of reasons, chief among them the simple fact that there are too many episodes potentially worthy of inclusion for the entire panel to watch them all. This is where our individual picks come in. Each panelist was given one slot to fill with any episode that hadn’t made the list, but which they felt belonged there. Here are our individual picks, to complement our list of the Best Episodes of 2015 (so far):

#LoveWins! Ryan Murphy's Thoughts on What the Supreme Court's Same-Sex Marriage Ruling Means, and How TV Helped Pave the Way

Just when we thought we were done crying. Today, after the historic Supreme Court ruling in which bans on same-sex marriages were ruled unconstitutional, we couldn't help but think of Ryan Murphy, the creative force behind such Lgbt landmark TV moments as Glee, The Normal Heart and The New Normal, and how pop culture truly can bring about more acceptance and tolerance. Because confession: We are diehard TV fans and the idea that TV can help to affect positive change is…just one reason to love it all the more. And feel Good about it.
