Steve Zaillian Brings Film-Style Grittiness to HBO Series ‘The Night Of’

13 July 2016 9:45 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The Night Of” may be Steven Zaillian’s first TV series, but the reality is it’s more like a nine-hour film. The Oscar-winning writer of “Schindler’s List” and occasional director (“All the King’s Men”) labored over every frame of the HBO limited series, from the scripts to the direction to the editing. The gripping eight-part murder mystery — which debuted July 10 and continues through Aug. 28 — grabbed hold of him, far more than he had expected.

“I couldn’t let go,” he says. “I just felt that I knew it inside and out.”

Along with writer Richard Price, Zaillian had planned to be hands-on only with the pilot. But once he delved into the production, he found he wasn’t willing to turn over the reins to another director.

“We both started to feel that the more we did, the more we wanted to do it all,” he says. “It »

TV Ratings: ‘The Night Of’ Debuts Strong for HBO

11 July 2016 4:17 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “The Night Of” got off to a strong start, attracting 1.3 million total viewers across three broadcasts for its premiere Sunday night, according to Nielsen live-plus-same day numbers. According to HBO, the miniseries’ first installment was also viewed by 1.5 million people on demand and on digital platforms HBO Go and HBO Now in the two weeks leading up to the television premiere.

That would bring the total number of viewers to 2.8 million across platforms. Though the long rollout gave viewers ample chance to sample the premiere, it appears to have drawn stronger interest than HBO’s other recent miniseries efforts. Last year’s “Show Me a Hero,” from executive producer David Simon, debuted its first two hours to an average 0.44 million people — though that was for only one telecast, compared to three for “The Night Of.”

Created by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price, “The Night Of” tells the story of a complex murder case in New »

The Night Of is the TV Crime Drama We Need Right Now

11 July 2016 10:35 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Drawing influences from The Wire, this HBO show boldly tackles race in the face of the criminal justice system.

After a string of disappointments and a lot of drama, HBO can finally rest easy with its promising summer murder mystery series The Night Of. Based on the BBC show Criminal Justice, The Night Of follows Nasir “Nas” Khan (Riz Ahmed), a smart young Pakistani American who finds himself at the center of a police investigation after a night on the town goes horribly wrong. The show recalls the procedural aspects of Law and Order and True Detective, but operates more like The Wire in its examination of race and the criminal justice system through the eyes of the investigators and the accused. The show’s first episode, titled “The Beach,” breaks down the events of “the night of” as Nas remembers it, and then some. In true procedural fashion, we get to play detective and guess what »

Review: 'The Night Of' gets off to a breathless start with 'The Beach'

10 July 2016 7:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Earlier this week, I published my rave review of HBO's new miniseries The Night Of, and I'm going to put it into the weekly review rotation for its run, starting with thoughts on the first episode, coming up just as soon as I can name two Yankees headed for the Hall of Fame... "Am I really here?" -Naz Because "The Beach" has been available for a few weeks through HBO's On Demand and streaming services, I've gotten to see the early reactions to it, which tend to break down along three paths: 1)That was unbearable to watch because I felt so bad for Naz as his night out went so horribly awry; 2)That was unbearable to watch because Naz acted like such a complete idiot at every turn; 3)Even though I felt bad for Naz, and/or couldn't believe how stupid he kept being, I was riveted by the whole thing. »

The Night Of Review

10 July 2016 2:58 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Eight episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

It takes a while to put your finger on why the opening episode of HBO’s The Night Of is so damnably unnerving. For most of its length, the premiere follows a fairly standard small-kid-big-city narrative, with Riz Ahmed’s nerdy college student Nasir Khan (that’s “Naz” for short) “borrowing” his father’s yellow cab to sneak out to one of the few parties he’s been lucky enough to score an invite to. Making his way through the maze of traffic lights and stumbling pedestrians, he’s surprised when a beautiful young woman (Sofia Black D’Elia) steps into the car, looking to catch a ride. The two lock eyes; from Naz’s perspective at least, it seems like there’s something there – and off they go on an unexpected escapade through New York.

At first, you wonder whether you’re simply a biased observer, »

TV Review: ‘The Night Of’

8 July 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO’s “The Night Of” begins with an after-school special come to life: A college kid trying to get to a party sneaks out in his dad’s cab and ends up, just hours later, in jail charged with murder. A pretty girl is dead, and the kid has her literal blood on his hands.

For the entire first episode, “The Beach,” the audience watches the night slowly unfold from the perspective of Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) — a wide-eyed boy so seemingly innocent that he feels like a child entrusted to the viewer’s protection. Naz, as he likes to be called, is feeble with girls, sheltered by his parents, ignored by most of his classmates. It makes the sense of portent hanging over the first episode nearly unbearable. As a funny situation goes south from weird to complicated to outright bad, Naz retains that essential vulnerable sweetness, that innocence that shouts that it must be protected »

Meet ‘The Night Of’ Star Riz Ahmed, Who Just Wants To Keep Things Honest

8 July 2016 8:44 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Night Of” didn’t happen overnight for Riz Ahmed. The actor first began work on the HBO drama four years ago, back when the late James Gandolfini first brought his passion project to network. “I started shooting this in 2012. I was a different person,” he recently told IndieWire. “I’ll never forget this experience. It’s emotional, because it was a lot of blood, sweat and tears for everyone to get to this point.”

James Franco’s Movie Column: Civil War Meets Mumblecore in ‘Men Go To Battle’

7 July 2016 6:15 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

James + Semaj is a column where James Franco talks to his reverse self, Semaj, about new films. Rather than a conventional review, it is place where James and Semaj can muse about ideas that the films provoke. James loves going to the movies and talking about them. But a one-sided take on a movie, in print, might be misconstrued as a review. As someone in the industry it could be detrimental to James’s career if he were to review his peers, because unlike the book industry—where writers review other writer’s books—the film industry is highly collaborative, and a bad review of a peer could create problems. So, assume that James (and Semaj) love all these films. What they’re interested in talking about is all the ways the films inspire them, and make them think. James is me, and Semaj is the other side of me. »

'The Night of': TV Review

5 July 2016 5:39 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

John Turturro is probably the biggest name appearing in HBO's new limited series The Night of, while British actor Riz Ahmed plays the drama's central figure, but the dark, lurching, spirit-crushing star, both protagonist and antagonist, is the American criminal justice system. It takes some moxie to tackle an entire institutional infrastructure and make gripping television, especially to do so on a network where David Simon has made a critically adored cottage industry of such storytelling, but Richard Price and Steven Zaillian don't lack for ambition, mostly realized. The Night of follows Nasir "Naz" Khan (Ahmed), an American-born

Review: 'The Night Of' is the great drama HBO very badly needs right now

5 July 2016 10:26 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

There's his name about a minute into the opening credits of The Night Of: James Gandolfini. That Gandolfini, who died three years ago, is still listed as an executive producer on the new HBO miniseries speaks to the deal he signed way back when he was going to co-star in the project (in a role now played by John Turturro), and to his role as one of the people championing it through development. It also evokes images of a time when HBO owned the Prestige TV game outright, benevolently renting space out to would-be challengers because its position was so strong. That was a long time ago, before the rise of Netflix and all the other Peak TV players, and before HBO skidded into its current rough patch. Executives keep leaving abruptly. Recent dramas have either failed outright (the expensive, star-laden Vinyl got unrenewed last month), imploded quickly (True »

4 July 2016 5:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

More than three years after the tragic death of James Gandolfini, the procedural show said to be his passion project is finally due to hit screens. HBO's The Night Of — an eight-part miniseries co-created by Steven Zaillian and Richard Price, with Zaillian directing seven episodes — is set to debut July 10 (and later in the year on Sky Atlantic in the U.K.). Based on the BBC drama Criminal Justice, the story follows Naz, a young Pakistani-American student (Riz Ahmed) accused of a brutal murder, with John Turturro as John Stone, his ambulance-chasing eczema-

The Best TV in July: 'Mr. Robot,' 'Vice Principals' and More

2 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

There's no shortage of exciting options for cord-cutters in July (we’ve already rounded up the cream of the streaming crop), but those viewers holding fast to the programming beamed into their living-room sets have plenty to get excited about too. While the major networks catch their breath before launching back into their fall hits and misses, fascinating things are happening in the world of cable.

HBO has historically held fast and run uniformly excellent programming during the hotter months, and this year will be no different, with a well-pedigreed »

‘The Night Of’ Review: HBO Miniseries Delivers The Procedural Goods

29 June 2016 4:53 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Debuting on July 10, The Night Of is a well-crafted miniseries that comfortably takes you to some very uncomfortable places. In the manner of the best of upmarket procedurals and like a thick thriller paperback, Richard Price and Steve Zaillian’s eight-parter based on the UK series Criminal Justice might, as I say in my video review above, prove a perfect summer distraction. The HBO and BBC Worldwide co-production, which has had its first episode on HBO Go and on-demand… »
