The Best TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs Now – IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs Now – IndieWire Critics Survey
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: Which character(s) on a TV show that aired in 2017 deserves their own spinoff?

I would be down for a show built around Laura Dern’s one-episode role on “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as Wendy Hebert, the flaky “mystery bitch” who wanted to marry Rev. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm). Mostly because Dern is the absolute shit and she should be doing more comedy. And secondly because this could be, as the theme song says, a fascinating transition from the lightly touched-upon trauma Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) endured at her kidnapper’s hand to a darker comedic exploration into the

Sundance Wish List: 70 Films We Hope Will Head to Park City in 2018
The fall is often perceived as the launch pad for awards season, as numerous prestige films compete for attention in the final weeks of the year. For much of the film community, however, it’s also the first major window into movies worth talking about next year. That’s because the Sundance Film Festival lineup typically drops in the middle of November, shaking up the holiday season with a mixture of familiar faces and newcomers who could make an impact in Park City this January. With programmers working in overdrive to complete the lineup in the coming weeks, and filmmakers praying to break through as the deadlines loom, we’ve cobbled together as much intel as we can for this extensive preview featuring dozens of promising titles that stand a good chance at making their way to Sundance this year. As usual, we’ve tried to avoid projects that are

Ewan McGregor Spotted Holding Hands with Girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Ewan McGregor Spotted Holding Hands with Girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Ewan McGregor has taken his new romance public.

The actor, 46, stepped out with his new girlfriend Mary Elizabeth Winstead, 32, in Los Angeles on Saturday. The two walked hand-in-hand as they made their way down the street.

The couple looked casually cool for the afternoon, both wearing leather jackets and jeans.

Their outing comes less than one month after they were spotted kissing and McGregor announced his split from wife Eve Mavrakis. The two were married for 22 years and have four daughters together: Clara, 21, Jamyan, 16, Esther, 15 and Anouk, 6.

Halloween 2017: Tamika’s Horror Double Feature – Honeymoon (2014) and 10 Cloverfield Lane

[To get you into the spooky spirit, the Daily Dead team is spotlighting double features that we think would be fun to watch this Halloween season. Keep an eye on Daily Dead for more double feature recommendations, and check here for our previous Halloween 2017 coverage.]

The two films in this Halloween season double feature recommendation seem like an unlikely pairing, but definitely have more in common than meets the eye. Despite little differences here and there, both films are small, loud, shocking, and out of this world. I also really enjoy films whose plots slowly unravel, and we learn what is going on as the truth is revealed to the characters. For me, that kind of pacing keeps you guessing from start to finish, and Honeymoon (2014) and 10 Cloverfield Lane have all of these elements in spades.

To set the mood for what will be roughly four hours of an extraterrestrial-beings-take-over-our-world marathon, I recommend that you start things off with Honeymoon, directed by Leigh Janiak and starring Harry Treadaway (Mr. Mercedes, Penny Dreadful), Rose Leslie (Game of Thrones), Ben Huber, and Hanna Brown. It tells the story of newlyweds Paul (Treadaway) and Bea (Leslie), who are

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut

Winstead in “Fargo”: FX Networks

Hot off the heels of her turn as con artist-with-a-heart-of-gold Nikki Swango on FX’s “Fargo,” Mary Elizabeth Winstead has booked her next role — and it’s in a woman-helmed film. Winstead is set to star in Eva Vives’ feature directorial debut, the semi-autobiographical “All About Nina.” The “Smashed” actress will portray the titular character, a professionally successful but personally dissatisfied stand-up comedian. Deadline broke the story.

“To escape a difficult ex and to prepare for a prospectively life-changing audition, Nina flees to Los Angeles where she meets Rafe (Common, ‘Selma’),” the source summarizes, “who challenges almost every preconception she has — including those around her own deeply troubled past.”

“All About Nina’s” supporting cast includes Kate Del Castillo (“Ingobernable”), Clea DuVall (“Veep”), Melonie Diaz (“Fruitvale Station”), Camryn Manheim (“Person of Interest”), Mindy Sterling (“Black-ish”), Angelique Cabral (“Band Aid”), Beau Bridges (“Masters of Sex”), Chace Crawford (“Gossip Girl”), and Jay Mohr (“Suburgatory”).

Deadline doesn’t specify, but it’s likely Vives will pen as well as direct the dark comedy, which originated at the 2016 Sundance Institute’s Screenwriters and Directors Labs. Vives will also produce with Diablo Entertainment’s Natalie Qasabian, Eric B. Fleischman, and Sean Tabibian. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Joshua Astrachan are exec producing.

Vives has previously directed the shorts “Me, Myself, & I,” “She Pedals Fast (For a Girl),” and “Join the Club.” She worked as a producer, editor, and casting director on the Sundance and Cannes awarding-winning short “Five Feet High and Rising.”

Winstead was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for playing an alcoholic trying to stay sober in “Smashed.” Her recent credits include “Mercy Street,” “BrainDead,” and “10 Cloverfield Lane.” She received a Saturn Award for her work in the latter.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead to Star in Eva Vives’ Feature Directorial Debut was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
