Is Team Downey's 'The Judge' another October Warner Bros. Oscar power play?

13 June 2014 5:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Ever since Robert Downey Jr. revitalized his career, first proving he was for real on "Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang" and then making good on big-boy movie insurance with "Iron Man," I've been wondering if we'll see him really seize an awards season opportunity. Yes, he was nominated in 2008 for a hilarious turn in "Tropic Thunder," but that was as much a stunt as it was genius. When he really sinks his teeth into something non-genre again, will the Oscar machine be at his beck and call? "The Judge" could provide an answer in due time. We're not quite there on predictions and such yet. Cannes just wrapped up and there are still elements trickling out for the upcoming season. I understand the rush to be an early bird prognosticator — we did it ourselves around here for years before it just started to feel like wasted energy. We'll chime in around »

How do you defend someone who never defended you? That’s the heart of this thriller/family drama (out Oct. 10) starring Robert Downey Jr. as a Chicago defense attorney who returns to his small town to represent his hostile father (Robert Duvall) in a murder case.

Duvall plays the imperious title character: a living symbol of justice in their community and a tyrant in his own household — factors that compelled his son to flee years before. A family funeral brings Downey’s character home, but it’s another death that keeps him there.

“Against his own instincts and desire, he »

8 May 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is keeping its foot on the gas when it comes to scripted series development.

The cabler has given a cast-contingent pilot order to drama “Stanistan,” a dramedy about a group of State Department workers, CIA operatives and journalists working in a fictional Middle Eastern country. Project was developed at Fox earlier this year.

USA has also unveiled a slew of drama, comedy and limited-series development prospects from such producers as Jodie Foster (pictured), Carlton Cuse, Peter Tolan, Amy Poehler and Gregory Nava. The development slate reinforces USA’s focus on broadening the scope of its original series, particularly dramas, beyond the blue-sky and action fare that has clicked for the NBCU cabler in the past.

“This slate represents the next generation of originals at USA, with a focus on dramas that are more serialized, provocative and culturally resonant,” said USA prexy Chris McCumber. “We’re very much committed »
