Norman Lear, 'One Day at a Time' Cast Reflect on Changing Opportunities for Latinos in Hollywood

3 June 2017 11:34 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Norman Lear thought he was heading to the City Club in downtown Los Angeles on Friday evening to support Netflix's reboot of One Day at a Time. He had no idea that the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute's inaugural Pioneer Award was specifically for him.

In characteristic self-deprecating fashion, the legendary television creator continuously deflected attempts by Rep. Joaquin Castro, chair of Chci (a nonpartisan nonprofit), to turn attention to him, telling those gathered with him onstage — One Day at a Time stars Justina Machado, Rita Moreno and Tony Plana, plus comedian Paul Rodriguez, star of Lear's »

Guest Actor in a Comedy: The Frontrunners and Dark Horses for 2017 Emmys

1 June 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This category caused quite a bit of buzz last year when Peter MacNicol was nominated for “Veep” and then deemed ineligible, as he appeared in too many episodes to qualify as a guest. He was replaced by Peter Scolari of “Girls,” who went on to actually win. Well, this year both Peters are eligible and should return to the category. They’ll face off against some stiff competition, including Louis C.K., who has landed three noms for hosting “SNL” already. Dave Chapelle also hosted a popular episode of “SNL.” Jon Hamm and Fred Willard have both been nominated here before for their roles on “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” and “Modern Family,” while Hugh Laurie has moved into the guest category for his returning character on “Veep.” Daveed Diggs was hilarious as Kimmy’s new love interest on “Kimmy Schmidt,” but he’s more likely to be recognized for his arc as Bow’s laidback brother on “Black-ish.” Guests »

USA Network Renews Colony for a Third Season

4 April 2017 12:52 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Whether you side with the Occupation or the Resistance, you can rejoice with the news that the USA Network has renewed Colony for a third season.

Multiple outlets, including THR, report that a 13-episode third season of Colony will premiere sometime in 2018 (the first two seasons had January premieres). Created by Carlton Cuse and Ryan J. Condal, the series takes place in a Los Angeles under siege by enigmatic aliens known as "Hosts." While the Hosts and their drones employ murderous methods to keep people in line, it's the humans that work for them that can be the most brutal. The second season finale of the series airs this Thursday, April 6th on USA.

Featuring a potent blend of family drama, political chess moves, and expertly choreographed action scenes (the show's long-take firefights are intensely realistic and marvelously shot) against the backdrop of an intriguing sci-fi mystery, Colony continues to »

Colony fans can watch the finale with the assurance the fight will continue!

USA Network renewed the sci-fi series ahead of the Colony Season 2 finale this coming Thursday.

"Along with our partners Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions, we can’t wait to see what’s in store for our heroes next season."

Colony could be compared to some of the greatest shows airing on television. »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from Thursday's episode of Colony, "Good Intentions."]

Colony took on the issue of fake news and alternative facts Thursday in a way only the sophomore USA science fiction thriller could.

After a spaceship exploded in the Los Angeles night sky one night, key political operatives serving the new not-from-our-world order gathered together the following morning to get their story straight. How would they sell the explosion to their subjugated civilians without revealing that it was an astonishing act of rebellion? Proxy Alcala (Tony Plana) comes up with a whopper of a pitch: »
