The 2015 incarnation of the Atx Television Festival, the fourth one in the festival’s history, has added a number of new panels to their lineup to go with previously announced panels, which have included Justified, Bunheads, and Playing House.
The festival has added the Fox series Empire to its lineup. Titled “Empire: The Creatives”, the panel will feature the show’s producers Danny Strong, Ilene Chaiken, and Wendy Calhoun discussing the freshman series. The animated series Rick & Morty will also be making an appearance at the festival, as channel Adult Swim is set to present “Inside Rick and Morty”, which will feature a discussion with the show’s creators, Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland.
The most sizable presence, however, appears to be that of FX, as the channel has brought a number of its half-hour series to the festival. Among the panels will be the series Married, which will screen »

Austin, Texas, is starting to look a lot like Stars Hollow, Conn.

Brandy Norwood would “absolutely” take a part on Fox’s hit music business drama “Empire.” The actress and singer said she would accept an offer “in a heart beat” on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” on Sunday when host Andy Cohen inquired about possible involvement in show created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong. “I keep hearing that question,” Norwood, who appeared on the talk show alongside “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kandi Burruss, said.

"I lost my virginity – I don't know I would want to lose it again," Empire co-creator/Ep Lee Daniels said today about working in television and whether he'd do more during. He was among the panelist at a Hollywood Radio and TV Society luncheon. He said the transition from movies to TV was difficult for him and Danny Strong and that nothing he’d done in film had prepared him for it. “This wasn’t us fighting with [The Butler producer] Harvey Weinstein over a cut. This was a… »

Of the acquisition, Channel 4’s Chief Creative Officer, Jay Hunt said: “Empire has been a record breaking hit in the Us. It’s grown and grown as audiences have fallen in love with its unforgettable characters and soundtrack.

Edie Falco, “Boardwalk Empire” creator Terence Winter, “Recount” and “Game Change” writer Danny Strong and “Girls” alum Andrew Rannells were among those making the rounds. “Veep’s” Julia Louis-Dreyfus herself huddled for a long time at a table with Katie Couric. CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield was also hovering around, no doubt looking for scoops about Selina Meyer’s next moves.
Michael Lombardo and other HBO execs were on hand to cheer the launch of the latest campaign, but a group snuck off to an upstairs room every so often to catch up with the Ncaa men’s basketball championship game.
The setting was complete with an electric “Potus” sign parked behind the bar and a photo-op installation with plenty of American flags. Four more years, indeed.

The UK’s Channel 4 has acquired U.S. TV phenom Empire and will air the show this spring on youth-oriented channel E4. The acquisition is something of a coup for Channel 4, which has traditionally fared well in terms of diverse content on its grid. Lee Daniels and Danny Strong’s Empire was a ratings juggernaut for Fox earlier this year, following the travails of hip-hop CEO Lucious Lyon, played by Terrence Howard, and his dysfunctional family. The finale netted over 23… »
"Empire" co-creator Danny Strong is banking on his show going the distance -- he just scored a sweet new WeHo condo to keep him closer to his J-o-b. Our sources say Danny is only in town part-time when he's churning out the hit Fox drama -- and needed something a little cozier than a hotel ... so he scooped up the modest new crib. The docs show Danny only dropped $660k on the 1-bed/1-bath pad. »

File this one under: Big mistake...Huge! Ok, so we actually think this Mad Men star will be just fine, but still, John Slattery has to be kicking himself a wee bit for turning down a chance to star on the biggest breakout show of the year: Fox's Empire. It turns out that executive producer Danny Strong tried to get Slattery on the Fox show...and he turned that chance down. Strong guest starred on the AMC drama with Slattery before Empire came onto the scene, and Slattery reveals in an interview with The Daily Beast that Strong asked him to be on it. "That's Danny Strong who punches me in the balls!" Slattery says of Strong's Mad Men character. "That guy is on top of the »
As Mad Men's final episodes approach, it's natural to wonder where the show's performers might show up next. Elisabeth Moss is currently on Broadway, January Jones is on The Last Man on Earth, and John Slattery apparently could have been on Empire. Recall that Danny Strong, Empire's co-creator and executive producer, plays Roger Sterling's cousin-in-law Danny Siegel on Mad Men. Slattery tells The Daily Beast, "[Strong] actually asked me if I wanted to be on Empire, and I think I let that ship sail. I don't know who I would've played … some white dude." Please, Lord, don't let it be too late. We would all love to see John Slattery play some white dude on Empire. »

First off, let's take a moment to recognize this first Thursday morning in months where we weren't talking about those amazing Empire ratings dominating Wednesday's primetime. Those dizzying heights of last week's finale of the Lee Daniels- and Danny Strong-created drama already seem so long ago. What didn't seem that long ago, at least on Fox last night, was the 1980s. With appearances by Salt-n-Pepa, David Hasselhoff and a mentoring Boy George, the music of the Reagan… »
How would you pump yourself up to craft the twists and turns of hip-hop soap Empire? How about if you don't work in the music business? How about if you're a white guy? Danny Strong knows — he has to, as the show's co-creator. (He's also a part-time that guy, playing Elijah's ex on Girls, Danny Siegel on Mad Men, Jonathan on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Doyle on Gilmore Girls). Here's how, as he told Kcrw:“I was in my car in L.A., and I was driving around, and I heard a news story about Puffy, and I just thought, ‘Hip-hop is so cool. That’s what I should do next, something in hip-hop.’ And I immediately began thinking King Lear and The Lion in Winter, and that’s how I work. I go to classical archetypes.” And how else do you, a white guy, write that patented Empire drama? »

Warning: Empire season one spoilers ahead.
Vernon was the character who died on the Empire season finale — not that we’re entirely surprised. He is the one who knew Lucious killed Bunky, plus he already tried to take away Lucious’ control of the company and was dabbling in coke. The odds weren’t in his favor. Getting killed off a hit show is a tough break for any actor, especially when you weren’t that memorable to begin with. The TV veteran is going hard on a post-Empire press tour this week, discussing his not-so-dearly departed character. And honestly? It’s more than we ever got from him on 10 episodes of Empire. Although apparently that’s not his fault. “It’s bad enough y’all haven’t written anything real significant that I can sink my teeth into,” Yoba said during his interview with The Combat Jack Show. “People don »

There’s certainly no question that Fox‘s Empire is an absolute hit, and the series finale’s massive ratings prove it.
If you happened to miss the show, or just want to watch it over and over again, you now know where to look. Hulu has just announced that it has the exclusive ability to let you binge on the show people can’t stop talking about.
It may eventually be a show, and deal, worth studying as we have to wonder at some point if the law of diminishing returns doesn’t kick in when a show becomes popular enough that everyone who wants to watch it already did.
But, big news for Hulu as the streaming wars rage on.

Thoughts on last night's "Empire" season finale coming up just as soon as I clutch your pearls... Since last we discussed it (when I had only seen the very first episode), "Empire" has exploded from a promising show into the biggest phenomenon network TV has seen in a decade (going back to the season of "Desperate Housewives," "Lost" and "Grey's Anatomy"). Its ratings climbed almost every week it was on the air (overnight ratings aren't in as I write this, but Fox's former scheduling chief suggests they went waaaaay up for the finale) as it became The Show That Launched a Thousand Think Pieces. Was it feeding a ravenous appetite for a primetime soap set in the world of hip-hop? For a drama with a predominantly African American cast? Did people just want to see Taraji P. Henson wear fur jackets and tell people to kick rocks? As with any phenomenon, »

"Empire" creator Danny Strong seems fascinated by the prospect of a mashup between his show and "Scandal." Strong was out Wednesday night celebrating the season finale of his Epically popular show when we asked about the possibility of the two biggest shows on social media colliding. He was hip to the idea -- and even threw out a few storylines -- but man did he clam up quick when we asked him about Oprah Winfrey possibly appearing next season. »

“Empire” exec producer Ilene Chaiken can’t believe that her dream season has come to an end. The 12-episode run of Fox’s runaway hit soap has been an experience like no other for the veteran showrunner.
“The sense of mission and joy we’ve had about doing this show was really apparent to me from the moment we went to work,” Chaiken told Variety, two days before “Empire” aired its two-hour finale. “Every member of (the cast and crew) has loved working on this show like they’ve never loved anything else. There was great passion and conviction from the start. We were all dedicated to the mission of making this show great.”
Mission accomplished. “Empire” has been a jaw-dropping success for Fox — defying the odds and ratings gravity to grow its audience with each week’s airing since its Jan. 7 premiere. To date the show is averaging more »
