Arrested Development, which producer Brian Grazer confirmed would be returning

Netflix’s upcoming series The Get Down has cast its four lead roles. The hip hop drama, set in New York in the 70s, has tapped Shameik Moore, Justice Smith, Skylan Brooks, and Tremain Brown Jr. to star in the series. Moore, who will soon be seen on the big screen in the Sundance feature Dope, will be playing Shaolin Fantastic, while Smith, who is in this summer’s Paper Towns, will play Ezekiel. Brown Jr. will make his acting debut on the series by playing Boo-Boo, while Brooks, who was one of the two leads in The Inevitable Defeat of Mister & Pete, will play Ra-Ra.

Netflix describes The Get Down thusly.

The Get Down focuses on 1970s New York — broken down and beaten up, violent, cash strapped — dying. Consigned to rubble, a rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are »

Q&A: USA Network’s Chris McCumber Talks New Shows, More WWE and VOD Experiments

9 April 2015 6:04 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

USA Network is in the midst of a major brand re-think led by president Chris McCumber. More sports, more WWE, more original dramas and more zeitgeist-y drama within those original series are key items on USA’s agenda for 2015.

McCumber in his team are also donning lab coats to experiment with new ways of making shows available on air and online in an effort to get the biggest bang for all the bucks they’re pouring in to programming. McCumber spoke with Variety in his office at 30 Rock last week about the body-and-fender work underway at USA.

You’ve been very vocal about trying to find a new breed of original USA drama series. What are you looking for?

This is an evolution. The goal now is to evolve our characters to better reflect what’s going on in society now. We’ve gone through a huge demographic shift where »

SXSW Interview: Jamie Babbit and Karey Dornetto Talk Fresno

19 March 2015 7:18 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Fresno is writer Karey Dornetto and director Jamie Babbit's first film collaboration and hopefully not the last. It is a crime comedy that tells the dysfunctional story of two sisters Shannon (played by Judy Greer) a registered sex offender fresh out of rehab and her bright and shiny yet unintentionally enabling sister Martha (played by Natasha Lyonne). When an accidental death occurs the sisters are stuck trying to figure out how to get rid of it or suffer the consequences. Cinelinx sat down with both Babbit and Dornetto to discuss the film.

Post-rehab, sister Shannon shacks up with Martha and they both work as maids at a nearby hotel. Shannon, not completely over her sex addiction, ends up having sex with a perv in the hotel and accidentally kills him. With a dead body on their hands, the two sisters decide to bring it to the local crematory to get rid of it. »

SXSW 2015, The Average: ‘7 Chinese Brothers,’ ‘Adult Beginners,’ ‘Just Jim’ and More

19 March 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

SXSW 2015 Film Review

complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015

7 Chinese Brothers

Director/Screenwriter: Bob Byington

A man unaccustomed to telling the truth learns to at least describe it. Cast: Jason Schwartzman, Tunde Adebimpe, Eleanore Pienta, Olympia Dukakis, Stephen Root. (World Premiere) (film synopsis from sxsw.com)

Overall

The film is almost about nothing, just like the title of the film. Most of the time this doesn’t matter because we get to watch Schwartzman do many Schwartzman things, including acting opposite his real-life dog. There is a very sweet and surprisingly authentic death involving a key character. Besides that moment, when the film ends, you’ll quickly forget about it and move on.

Final Score: 6/10

 

Adult Beginners

Director: Ross Katz, Screenwriters: Jeff Cox, Elizabeth Flahive

Out of a job after a disastrous product launch, a big-city yuppie retreats to his suburban childhood home, in this heart-warming and hilarious film about crashing hard, »
