How ‘UnREAL’ Is Really Helping Female Filmmakers Break Into TV

18 July 2016 1:36 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

UnREAL” may wildly chronicle the difficulties attached to working in TV — specifically for women — but Lifetime’s highly-touted drama is doing everything it can to help real-life female filmmakers realize their dreams.

In December 2015, Lifetime and AFI struck a deal to create and offer production jobs for each graduate of the AFI Conservatory Directing Workshop for Women. That meant each member of the illustrious class would be getting hands on experience during production of Season 2, shadowing professional directors and creating behind-the-scenes projects of their own.

And, as if there was any doubt, it’s been a raging success.

Westworld Gets Fall 2016 Premiere on HBO

26 May 2016 2:28 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

HBO announced today that four new shows will debut on the cable network this fall, the highly-anticipated Westworld, Divorce, Insecure and High Maintenance. The network didn't reveal any exact premiere dates for each show, but we'll have to wait and see when these dates will be announced. Hopefully the network will also be debuting trailers for each show soon, but they did debut a number of photos.

HBO's one-hour drama series Westworld (ten episodes) is a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin. Set at the intersection of the near future and the reimagined past, it explores a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

The cast includes Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bols&#248 Berdal, Ben Barnes, »

‘Westworld’ Set for Fall Premiere at HBO

26 May 2016 12:07 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO has slated drama “Westworld” for a fall premiere, following delays that temporarily halted production on the series earlier this year. The network has also set comedies “Divorce,” “Insecure,” and “High Maintenance” to debut in the fall.

As Variety first reported, HBO shut down production of “Westworld” in January after the project fell behind schedule — previously having been slated to wrap production two months prior. Filming resumed three months later.

No specific premiere date has yet been set for any of the shows.

Production delays on “Westworld” were among a series of recent hitches in HBO’s scripted development that preceded this week’s departure of Michael Lombardo from his role as programming president of the network. Miniseries “Lewis & Clark,” from producers Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, suspended production in August and was put into redevelopment. HBO suspended drama series “Utopia” from David Fincher that same month, and »

The Final Six

Sony has scored the movie rights to Alexandra Monir's upcoming space thriller novel "The Final Six," a deal made even though only the book proposal and a few chapters were available - in fact the book's publishing rights are about to go up for auction.

The story imagines a present-day world under a first-of-its-kind coalition between the United Nations and the international space agencies, with a plot to send a team of six intrepid teenagers to create the first human settlement on Jupiter's moon, Europa. [Source: Variety]

Deadpool

Following the news about its massive success on Digital HD, Fox has released the full six-minute gag reel for the "Deadpool" film and - understandably - is definitely not safe for work.
