'Inside the FBI' Exec Producer Discusses Internal "Resistance," Election Fallout

16 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When prolific producer Dick Wolf first ventured to the FBI's New York office, it was supposed to be a simple meet and greet. The TV veteran behind the Law & Order and Chicago franchises was looking to do a new scripted drama about the government agency, when FBI director James Comey suggested he and Wolf Films' unscripted head, Tom Thayer, meet the real federal agents who would serve as the inspiration for the show's central characters. However, it didn't take long for Wolf to see the potential for more.

"He said, 'I want to do a six-hour docuseries before »

Et Obsessions: 'The Handmaid's Tale,' 'How to Be a Latin Lover' and 'Places' by Lea Michele

Normal 0 false false false En-us Ja X-none

Here at Et, we’re obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of April 24 to April 30, this is what we’re most excited about:

Why We’re Obsessed With ‘The Lost Tapes: L.A. Riots’

On April 29, 1992, following the acquittal of four white Lapd officers in the beating of a black motorist named Rodney King, Los Angeles became a war zone as protestors took to the streets to stand up to the injustice that had occurred. The protests quickly turned violent, leaving 50 people dead and hundreds more in hospitals, while laying waste to parts of the city. On the 25th anniversary of the event, a trio of documentaries -- A&E’s L.A. Burning: The Riots 25 Years Later, Showtime’s Burn Motherf**ker, Burn! and The Lost Tapes: L.A. Riots -- look back on what happened during those six days. The latter »

Law & Order: True Crime — The Menendez Murders continues to take shape at NBC, with up-and-comer Gus Halper (Power, Public Morals) set to star as Erik Menendez, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The inaugural installment of the eight-episode anthology series focuses on Lyle and Erik Menendez, brothers who were convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Halper, whose TV credits also include guest stints on Mercy Street and Chicago P.D., is the second actor to join the project, following the February casting of Edie Falco as tenacious defense attorney Leslie Abramson.

Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 9 Review: Comma

16 April 2017 9:20 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Gun control vs. gun ownership stories are hard to pull off on television.

Stories involving this hot-button issue usually end up horribly slanted, with one side being depicted as completely evil or ridiculous.

Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 9 wasn't entirely bias-free, but it provided a fresh angle and an interesting story that made it far more powerful than most stories about gun issues.

Making the left-wing professor so rabidly anti-gun that he harassed a student who didn't share his political views was a risky move. Americans are so polarized politically that many fans of the generally liberal Dick Wolf might have been turned off.

It worked, though, because it brought up questions that aren't often addressed on television.

Mr. Malone: She did have a run-in with another group of students. There was disciplinary action, but the charges were dropped.

Antonio: What was it about?

Mr. Malone: She was part of a group on campus. »

Bob Ingersoll: The Law Is A Ass #407

After Chicago Justice, I Need The Fifth

Things weren’t looking good. Not for Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone. And not for me. Not for Stone, because he was the star of Dick Wolf’s new TV show, Chicago Justice and things never look good for prosecuting attorneys in the first three acts of a Dick Wolf. Not for me, because I was watching Dick Wolf’s new TV show, Chicago Justice.

Stone was prosecuting Dylan Oates for arson and murder. Oates had set fire to a factory being used for a rave, resulting in dozens of injuries and 39 deaths. Oates was a smarmy, spoiled millennial whose condescending sneer alone should have made the jury want to convict him. But the case against Oates was coming in badly thanks to Oates’s high-priced and equally-smarmy defense attorney, Albert Forest. Stone decided he needed to establish a motive to secure a conviction. »

With 'Scandal,' Shonda Rhimes Notches Rare Third 100-Episode Milestone

13 April 2017 10:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Thursday's episode of Scandal will put showrunner Shonda Rhimes in a very exclusive club.

The "what if" themed hour marks the ABC political thriller's 100th episode and, for Rhimes, her third show — following Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice — to notch the impressive milestone. 

Prolific showrunners like Norman Lear, Dick Wolf and Chuck Lorre have all had at least three shows surpass the 100-episode mark, but the roster of female runners who have accomplished the same is very slim.

Chicago Justice Justice Not Believable

Between the Law & Order franchise, the Chicago franchise, and the ill-conceived, even ill-advised, attempt to revive Dragnet without Jack Webb, Dick Wolf may be responsible for more hours of television that I haven’t watched than Susan Lucci. I know he’s created and produced some of the most popular shows on TV, but I think his collected works are oeuvre-rated. So when I watched the first episode of his new show, Chicago Justice, I wasn’t expecting much. But even I wasn’t expecting so little.

First, there was the problem that the first episode of Chicago Justice was the third part of a three-part cross-over event that started in Chicago Fire and continued in Chicago P.D., neither of which I had watched. Fortunately, television still does something comic books seem unwilling to do nowadays, give recaps. So I was able to pick up »

Exclusive Interview: Carl Weathers talks Chicago Justice and his ‘Nam tour of duty

4 April 2017 4:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Adam Lowes

Carl Weathers will be forever associated by many with the iconic role of Rocky opponent turned confidant Apollo Creed in Stallone’s fabled movie series, but he’s also had a long and industrious career in both the film and TV industries.

His latest high-profile appearance in the latter is via a substantial part in Us TV drama über-producer Dick (Law & Order) Wolf’s latest effort, Chicago Justice. We spoke to him recently about some of his prior work, this new role and the challenges that came with it.

HeyUGuys: There’s been a solid mix of film and television work throughout your career. What was it about Chicago Justice in particular that tempted you to jump into another series? It must be quite a commitment.

Carl Weathers: Yes, it is. One of the series producers had written a script which I thought was really well »

Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 7 Review: Double Helix

2 April 2017 8:53 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Genes have been getting a bad rap lately on Dick Wolf shows.

On Law & Order: Svu Season 18 Episode 13, a rapist tried to use the "rape gene" defense while another worried about inheriting a predisposition to rape women.

And on Chicago Justice Season 1 Episode 7, a murderer tried using the same argument to claim she was not responsible for a brutal double homicide because she inherited irresistible urges to kill from her serial killer father.

I'm glad the defendant didn't get away with this ridiculous defense. I hope it's the last we hear of it for a long time.

Having David Zachariah's DNA turn up at a new crime scene could have gone in so many different directions instead of rehashing the bad genes defense to indefensible crimes.

Stone's story of the bad plea deal he made with Zachariah to give the victims' families closure was rich with dramatic possibilities. Maybe the »

Joelle Carter on Her Move From 'Justified' Outlaw to 'Chicago Justice' Crime-Solver

31 March 2017 9:30 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

When Joelle Carter was first contacted by Dick Wolf last year about joining his latest Chicago spinoff, she was a little hesitant about the gig.

"I was nervous they wanted me to be a lawyer," she tells The Hollywood Reporter with a laugh.

Thankfully, the prolific producer had other intentions. In the latest Windy City-set series, Carter stars as Laura Nagel, a tough investigator working for the State's Attorney's office.

The role is a full-circle moment for the actress, who 20 years earlier landed her first-ever acting gig on Wolf's long-running Law & Order. The 1996 episode saw Carter play »

Same but different: why Us TV is so obsessed with spin-offs

31 March 2017 5:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Us dramas like The Good Fight, Chicago Justice and The Blacklist: Redemption are being spun off hit shows – and that’s just this week. So Doctor Who aside, why is the UK so wary of them?

If you loved The Good Wife, prepare to reengage. After launching in the Us as the flagship drama for CBS’s new streaming service, the Christine Baranski-led continuation The Good Fight kicked off on More4 last night.

It’s not even the only spin-off to arrive on UK screens this week. If you’ve enjoyed watching fedora-sporting Machiavelli James Spader lead his maybe-daughter Megan Boone and her FBI squad on a merry dance for four seasons of The Blacklist, perhaps you were tempted to sample The Blacklist: Redemption on Wednesday. This spy-centric spin-off flips the gender dynamic of the usual Blacklist leads with secretive private military contractor Famke Janssen working with Ryan Eggold’s principled ex-cia spook who, »
