SundanceTV’s “Rectify” is about a man who must learn to live as a free man after a technicality sets him free from death row, where he had been in solitary confinement for 19 years. It’s a heavy subject to tackle, and no easy task for the actors who play those in Daniel Holden’s circle. Abigail Spencer had to mostly play it straight as Daniel’s (Aden Young) protective sister Amantha, who put her life on hold in order to work endlessly to free her brother. Not surprisingly, Spencer has particular fondness for one episode in the show’s second season in which. »

Read More: 'Rectify' Creator Ray McKinnon on the Benefits of Watching Weekly on SundanceTV vs. Binging on Netflix After generating substantial acclaim through two under-the-radar seasons, "Rectify" is hoping to land a little louder with the premiere of its third run of episodes. The slow-burn family drama examines the fallout of death row inmate Daniel Holden's (Aden Young) sudden release into the world, and more specifically its impact on his fractured family and tightly-knit small town community. Through two seasons, "Rectify" has won a Peabody Award, and both Young and supporting star Abigail Spencer have been nominated for Critics' Choice Awards for their performances. The series has a small-but-devoted fan base who should no doubt eat up an exclusive featurette (posted above) featuring the cast and crew discussing Season 3's major storylines. But it also works as a solid primer for anyone looking to get into what's frequently dubbed as "the best. »

SundanceTV’s Peabody Award-winning drama “Rectify” will return on Thursday, July 9, and Variety has an exclusive first look at the cast portraits for season three, which picks up immediately where the second season finale left off, on the very afternoon of Daniel’s (Aden Young) plea deal, with pressing questions still lingering over Daniel’s freedom: Will the deal be accepted? Will Daniel be forced to leave town? And when the body of a missing person is discovered, law enforcement once again turns to him for answers.
Elsewhere in season three, as Daniel’s devoted sister Amantha (Abigail Spencer) attempts to live her own life, she is given an opportunity at a local store that for the first time in a long time has nothing to do with her brother. Meanwhile, Tawney (Adelaide Clemens) and Ted Jr. (Clayne Crawford) struggle to see if their marriage has a future by delving into their pasts for answers. »

If voracious viewers find it hard to keep up with all the quality dramas on TV, just imagine how Emmy voters feel. Last year, 108 titles were submitted for consideration as outstanding drama series. This year, that number spiked to 145.
And the competition has grown increasingly cutthroat thanks to a number of critical darlings from small-but-aggressive new players like Wgn America, Pivot and Sundance.
This year, the TV Academy changed its rules to allow seven drama series battle for the top prize — up from six — sending studios and networks into a campaigning frenzy for a coveted slot. Since two of last year’s contenders — heavyweights “Breaking Bad” and “True Detective” — won’t be returning this year, there’s certainly room for a breakout. But favorites “Downton Abbey,” “Game of Thrones,” “House of Cards” and “Mad Men” are still firmly in the mix, while another of last year’s nominees — “Orange Is the New Black »

Day one and two of Atx Season 4 featured some fantastic programming and only minor line issues. Both sides of the festival were heightened in day three, which brought some great programs and events for attendees, but also the mess that was the Gilmore Girls Reunion panel line. The best and worst of the festival were on display and if Atx is going to continue to grow, it needs to learn from its many mistakes with the Gilmore Girls panel, and quickly.
The day started for me with Rectify, with a screening of the season three premiere and afterward, a Q&A moderated by The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman and featuring cast members Abigail Spencer, J. Smith-Cameron, and Aden Young, and executive producer Mark Johnson. It was lovely to watch the series, which benefits tremendously from its cinematic direction, in a theater, surrounded by an engaged audience. A show like »

“I wouldn’t have done this series had it been a long series because I’ve got too many passion projects I’m pursuing here in the U.K., movies and finishing up other TV stuff,” he says. “It would drive me a little crazy just doing the same thing over and over again. I mean 10 seemed like a lot to me, being British.”
Though Coogan usually spends more time on projects he’s written himself — he has two Oscar nominations for 2013’s “Philomena” — he immediately identified with Shalom Auslander’s advertising executive lead, Thom Payne. And being able to focus solely on the acting felt like a break.

The SundanceTV drama series "Rectify" tells the story of Daniel Holden (Aden Young), who is released from death row after new DNA evidence comes to light, but the audience doesn't know for sure if Daniel is innocent. Even Daniel isn't certain. How about series creator Ray McKinnon – does he know? "I'm going to take the fifth on that one," he says. "I don't want to incriminate myself by speaking about something that he or I may or may not have done, so at this time I'm going to refer all of those questions to my lawyer." (Watch our complete video chat below.) -Break- Aden Young ('Rectify') on playing 'confused and broken' ex-con [Exclusive Video] Whether or not Daniel turns out to be guilty, he has earned the unconditional support of TV critics. Last summer's second season earned a 92 score on MetaCritic, and Young recently picked up a Critics' Choice nomination for Best Drama Actor. »
It should come as no surprise that critically-acclaimed series such as "The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" took home top prizes at the fifth annual Critics' Choice TV Awards on Sunday night (it's right there in the name of the event, after all). But there was plenty of love for popular shows, too, proving that quality programming is becoming more widely available and amenable to audiences during this so-called golden age of television.
"The Americans" and "Silicon Valley" each claimed high honors in the best drama and comedy series categories, respectively, and their home networks were the biggest winners of the night: HBO snagged seven statuettes, while FX collected four. "Silicon Valley" was among the shows that won multiple awards, with T.J. Miller taking home the trophy for best supporting actor in a comedy.
Freshman series "Better Call Saul" and "Transparent" also walked away with two trophies apiece, while new sensation »

The 5th annual Critics’ Choice TV Awards took place Sunday at the Beverly Hilton hotel and aired live on A&E. “So You Think You Can Dance” host Cat Deeley emceed the proceedings — and also found time to accept the prize for best reality host midway through the show. Despite playfully jabbing rival host Tom Bergeron during her intro by joking she’d purposefully gotten him relegated to one of the back tables in the ballroom, she was spotted warmly embracing the “Dancing with the Stars” mainstay during the ad break.
The first prize of the night went to “Better Call Saul’s” Jonathan Banks for best supporting actor in a drama, and the thesp also had the dubious honor of earning the ceremony’s first (but far from the last) bleep during his acceptance speech. The “Breaking Bad” spinoff later won a second award for Bob Odenkirk’s lead »

Aden Young had just wrapped season three of SundanceTV's "Rectify" when he learned he had been nominated for a Critics' Choice TV Award for Best Drama Actor. "I was down in Griffin, Georgia, and I'd decided to stay on with my family on a little farm we'd rented for the duration of the shoot," he says. "I just got an email about it and was running around in my socks with my kids. We just danced a little bit, and then we got on with doing something – I think we went fishing to celebrate."

Scream Queens, which received a new trailer this week.
USA Network has formally given a series order to Queen of the South. The series will be based on the 2002 Spanish novel La Raina Del Sur by Arturo Pérez-Reverte, which has already been adapted into a Spanish-language telenovela, and will star City of God and Predators‘ Alice Braga in the lead role of Teresa Mendoza. The series synopsis is as follows.
Queen Of The South tells the powerful story of Teresa Mendoza (Braga). When her drug-dealing boyfriend is unexpectedly murdered in Mexico, Teresa is forced to go on the run and seek refuge in America, where she teams with an unlikely figure from her past to bring down the leader of the very drug trafficking ring that has her on the run. In the process, she learns the tools of the trade and strategically positions herself to become the leader of the Cartel. »

Yesterday, the nominations for the 5th annual Critics Choice Television Awards were announced. The sister group to the Critics Choice Movie Awards, this is what could be looked at as a bit of an Emmy Awards precursor, if you will. I’m not exactly an expert when it comes to TV and this awards season (it’s mostly film or bust for me in that regard), but I watch a handful of shows and follow along with the race. Not enough to accurately do predictions, mind you, but I did think this nomination announcement was worthy of a mention. As such, today we have the list of Critics Choice nominees, which I’ll be revealing to you shortly. Among the titles that fared best this year with the nominations, we have Justified lead the way with five nominations. Following that, we have The Americans, The Good Wife, and Transparent with four apiece. »
