5 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Rapper Kanye West debuted the music video for his song “Famous,” the first single off of his seventh album “The Life of Pablo,” which features synthetic nude, sleeping bodies of many famous celebrities, such as George W. Bush, Bill Cosby, Donald Trump, and Taylor Swift. Though the video sparked controversy for its nudity, provocation, and the potentially unlawful use of celebrity likeness, there’s one person who’s outraged about the video, but for a different reason: It’s because he was cut out.

Emmy Awards: 18 Underappreciated Shows That Deserve a Vote

16 June 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Emmy Awards voting has never been more complicated, with more series than ever vying for those coveted few slots in 2016. And while the usual suspects will naturally get attention, it’s those hidden gems that tend to get buried in the stacks of “For Your Consideration” mailers. To cut through the clutter, Variety’s TV team has selected a few favorites that we think deserve your vote.

Baskets,” FX

Starring Zach Galifianakis as “non-identical” twins Chip and Dale, Louie Anderson as their Costco obsessed mother, Christine, and 47-year-old acting novice Martha Kelly as the romantic lead, Martha, FX’s “Baskets” is not like any other comedy, or show, on television. The funny-sad serialized storytelling of showrunner Jonathan Krisel takes all of these characters on unexpected journeys full of emotional discoveries, pratfalls, bittersweet self-reflection and fart jokes. It’s completely silly, completely serious and completely wonderful. — Geoff Berkshire

2016 Emmy Contenders: Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series

7 June 2016 2:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

After five nominations for playing Sheila Jackson on “Shameless,” Joan Cusack finally took home the guest actress prize last year. And just in time — she didn’t appear in the show’s most recent season.

That opens the cateogry to a whole new winner, and it might just be someone who will be doubling up on noms this year. Ellen Burstyn [“Mom”] is also a potential nominee for her work on the drama “House of Cards,” as is Carrie Fisher [“Catastrophe”] for “Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.” Tovah Feldshuh stole the show with her “Where’s the Bathroom” number in “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” but could also score a nod on the drama side for her guest work on ‘The Walking Dead.”

Natasha Lyonne [“Portlandia”] did standout work on “Orange Is the New Black,” where her character is sorely missed. Cynthia Nixon [“Broad City”] and Judy Greer [“Mom”] are other actresses pulling double duty on the comedy and drama sides. »

Will Arnett™ (@arnettwill) May 25, 2016

BoJack Horseman was created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg, and takes a satirical swipe at celebrity culture, and the machinations of Hollywood. Will Arnett voices the titular character who – in a world where anthropomorphic animals and humans live side-by-side – is the former of star of a popular 1990s sitcom. BoJack seeks to regain cultural relevance by dictating a tell-all biography to ghostwriter Diane Nguyen (Alison Brie), while dealing with a freeloading room-mate (Aaron Paul), a social and professional rival »

It’s last call for Horace and Pete.

Louis C.K. formally announced to his email distro list on Saturday that his self-financed, 10-episode web series won’t be ordering a double.

“So. That was it,” the multi-hyphenate entertainer wrote. “I didn’t want to say [before] that it was the last episode. Because I didn’t want you to know, as you watched the episode, that it would be the last one. But yeah, obviously, that was it.”

‘Horace and Pete’ Web Series Ends, Louis C.K. Announces

16 April 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s only fitting that “Horace and Pete” has ended just as quietly as it began.

Louis C.K., the creator, writer, director, producer and star of the surprise web series, annouced on Saturday morning in a newsletter to fans that the show’s tenth episode, released on April 2, was also its final.

“That was it. I didn’t want to say in the last email that it was the last episode because I didn’t want you to know, as you watched the episode, that it would be the last one. But yeah, obviously, that was it,” he wrote.

The online series, which co-starred Steve Buscemi as Pete to C.K.’s Horace — brothers and bar owners — launched on Jan. 30 exclusively on C.K.’s website, LouisCK.net. Alan Alda, Edie Falco and Jessica Lange also appeared in the drama. The first episode was available for $5, the second for $2 and the rest for $3 each. »

Ellie Kemper Previews Season 2 of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’

14 April 2016 6:28 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Ellie Kemper’s lovable fish-out-of-water character Kimmy Schmidt makes her way back to screens on Friday for the second season of “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.”

The show that almost didn’t make it to air now has seven Emmy nominations to its name, tons of critical acclaim and a third season renewal, which came far ahead of its second season launching.

And, it also has a slew of new guest stars, locations, surprises and a big cliffhanger, according to Kemper.

“It’s an excellent cliffhanger,” Kemper tells Variety of the upcoming season ender. “Season one, there was a number of cliffhangers and so, I don’t know if cliffhanger is the right word, but season two ends with some things not wrapped up, some things are addressed, but there’s a lot left open, which is good since we have another season.”

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Season 2 Review

13 April 2016 11:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Six episodes were provided prior to broadcast.

I stand by my praise of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s peerlessly bizarre freshman season. Co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock created a world that not only felt weirdly truthful as its characters ran rampant through satisfying emotional beats, but was just plain weird. Robot maids were killed off, Don Draper was a maniacal cult leader, and ATMs gave out negative dollar bills. To put it plainly, Netflix saved a show that undoubtedly would never have seen its due on NBC. The cherry on top was a central theme of individuality, polished to a shine thanks to some welcomely diverse personalities that could have veered into grating stereotypes in lesser hands.

Now that Fey and Carlock have the canvas to run rampant with Netflix’s nebulous time restraints, not to mention a newly devout fanbase that knows the ins and outs of every Peeno »

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Shocker: Season 2 Is Even More Delightful

13 April 2016 9:30 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

On paper, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt still sounds too bizarre to work: a woman escapes from a bunker after 15 years of imprisonment, moves to New York, meets a fabulous struggling actor, becomes his roommate and starts working for an extravagant millionaire. It's the stuff of those bad 1980s movies you watch hungover, but Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, now in season two, works so incredibly well that it's one of TV's best comedies. There is no better word to describe Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt than delightful. Ellie Kemper is delightful. Tituss Burgess is delightful. Jane Krakowski is delightful. Carol Kane is delightful. And the guest stars? Forget it. Zosia Mamet as a hipster from Austin, Texas? Spot on. Amy Sedaris as »
