Writers’ Guild Negotiations Stall, as Leaders Call for Strike Authorization Vote

24 March 2017 8:05 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The Writers Guild of America is inching a step closer toward a potential writers’ strike.

The WGA’s negotiating committee sent a letter to members on Friday, recommending that the guild’s 12,000 members take a vote on strike authorization. It did not give a timetable for such a vote, however, and such a vote would not automatically lead to a strike.

Negotiations between the WGA and the Alliance of Motion Pictures & Television Producers started March 13, but without any movement, the guild is looking to take the next step.

On the last day of these two weeks, the companies’ proposal has barely a single hard-dollar gain for writers,” the letter said. “$51 billion in profits and barely a penny for those of us who make the product that makes the companies rich. But that’s not all. In response to our proposal to »

WGA Negotiators Call for Strike Authorization

24 March 2017 7:26 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Leaders of the Writers Guild of America have asked their 12,000 members for strike authorization, following two weeks of negotiations.

The WGA leaders have asserted that the talks with the Alliance of Motion Pictures & Television Producers, which launched March 13, have been unproductive and contain two major rollbacks in the guild’s health plan. The AMPTP accused the WGA of breaking off the talks.

“First, they have demanded that we make cuts to the plan – $10 million in the first year alone,” the WGA negotiating team said in a letter to members. “In return, they will allow us to fund the plan with money diverted from our own salaries. More, they’ve demanded the adoption of a draconian measure in which any future shortfalls to the plan would be made up by automatic cuts in benefits – and never by increases in employer contributions.”

“This, too, is unacceptable. The package, taken as a whole, »

The Shield creator on the possibility of a revival

18 March 2017 2:26 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Reviving old shows seems to be in vogue at the moment, and as his acclaimed cop drama The Shield celebrates its fifteenth anniversary, creator Shawn Ryan has been chatting to EW about the prospect of going down the same route as the likes of The X-Files, 24, Prison Break and Twin Peaks and catching up with Michael Chiklis’ Vic Mackey and the (surviving) police officers of the Farmington district of Los Angeles.

Jay Karnes and Michael Chiklis were over at our house [Ryan’s wife Cathy Cahlin Ryan played Vic’s ex-wife Corrine] a week ago, so it turned into a lot of reminiscing. We’ve all sort of worked and we’ve all enjoyed things we’ve done, but The Shield was a singular pleasure to do. To me, it’s hard not to want to recapture that feeling we all had when we were making the show. But nostalgia is a tricky thing. You’d also like the feel the »

‘Criminal Minds’ Alum Shemar Moore to Star in ‘S.W.A.T.’ Reboot at CBS

28 February 2017 11:48 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Shemar Moore is returning to CBS.

The “Criminal Minds” alum will star in the network’s reboot of “S.W.A.T.,” Variety has learned. He will also serve as a producer on the pilot.

Based on the movie of the same name, the pilot follows a locally born and bred S.W.A.T. lieutenant who is torn between loyalty to the streets and duty to his fellow officers when he’s tasked to run a highly-trained unit that’s the last stop for solving crimes in Los Angeles.

Moore will play the lead lieutenant, Daniel “Hondo” Harrelson, who exudes calmness, but is always ready for action. He has all the ability to become a leader — he’s just not happy with the reason he just became one.

Previously announced, the pilot will also star Stephanie Sigman, who will play Jessica, an ambitious and fastidious high-ranking S.W.A.T. member.

The “S.W.A.T.” pilot was written by Aaron Thomas and will be directed by Justin Lin »

What Canceled TV Shows Most Deserve a Better Ending? — IndieWire Critics Survey

28 February 2017 9:25 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: If you could give one canceled show one extra season (if only to wrap things up in a better way), which would it be?

Daniel Fienberg (@TheFienPrint), The Hollywood Reporter

It wasn’t that we were watching “Hannibal” just to see Bryan Fuller and company get to the events of “Silence of the Lambs,” but that was sure a fun thing looming on the horizon. The “Manhunter”/”Red Dragon” arc was probably the show’s most conventional, but it was all the more intriguing for that odd disconnect, of a frequently told story going through the mind of one of TV’s most original storytellers and »

The Get Down returns in April with Part II

23 February 2017 3:05 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Netflix has revealed that part two of season one of Baz Luhrmann and Shawn Ryan’s upcoming musical drama series The Get Down is set to premiere on the streaming service on April 7th; check out the date announcement trailer below…

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York – broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped – dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies with no one to shelter them – except each other, armed only with verbal games, improvised dance steps, some magic markers and spray cans. From Bronx tenements, to the SoHo art scene; from Cbgb to Studio 54 and even the glass towers of the just-built World Trade Center, The Get Down is a mythic saga of how New York at the brink of bankruptcy gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco – as told through the lives and music of the »

Timeless Season 1 Episode 16 Review: The Red Scare

20 February 2017 10:13 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Things all came together, then fell apart again.

Rittenhouse was everywhere on Timeless Season 1 Episode 16, the season finale.

And the surprises just kept coming.

The first surprise was that Lucy's ex-fiance Noah actually answers her calls.

Any self-respecting doctor loves to remove bullets in a warehouse hideout.

And his reward: Lucy telling him "it's not you; it's me" and "Don't let the door hit you in the ass."

Not her finest moment. But hey, she didn't choose him. Rather history forced him onto her. So her reaction is understandable.

Next up: Christopher smuggles Jiya out of Mason Industries, and she ends up going along as co-pilot because Rufus is woozy and may pass out again.

But it's Jiya that time travel doesn't agree with, as she ends up collapsing and seizing.

It looks like Rufus's job as the Lifeboat pilot is safe. 

And there's something funky happening during Jiya's seizures. »
