Review: ‘The Grinder’ Becomes a Doctor, Moves to CBS and Goes Black—’Code Black’—in Shocking Season 2 Premiere

13 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: Whether it was the tragic cancellation of “The Grinder” this past May or Rob Lowe’s confounding decision to follow up a show mocking melodramatic procedurals by joining a melodramatic procedural, it appears IndieWire TV Critic Ben Travers has lost his mind. Despite obvious evidence to the contrary, Mr. Travers has become convinced the CBS drama “Code Black,” which began its second season Wednesday after adding Mr. Lowe to the cast in the offseason, is actually a continuation of “The Grinder.” We can’t, in good conscience, allow the piece below to run without clarifying this is not the case. But we also couldn’t bring ourselves to break his heart. Without further ado, our review of… “The Grinder: Code Black.”]

The Grinder” made a name for itself in its first season by taking it to the man. The man, of course, was the rest of broadcast TV — specifically, the redundant, nonsensical procedurals populating a medium desperate to hold onto viewers (even as their average age creeps closer and closer to our nation’s mortality limit). A particularly sharp edge of that Season 1 battle axe was its opening sequences. “The Grinder” always began with a glimpse at “The Grinder”: the show-within-a-show starring Dean Sanderson, that he and his family would watch to bookend many episodes.

It can be a little confusing discussing “The Grinder” — the comedy starring Rob Lowe — side-by-side with its fictional counterpart of the same name, but we’ll try to keep them distinct. (Lowe is a real actor, Dean is his character who’s also an actor — a fake actor, if you will.) But every week in these opening flashbacks, »

‘Now We’re Talking’ Rolls Out Its Comedy Of Errors On Go90

23 hours ago | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

A show about a pair of inept broadcasters is currently generating laughs on Go90. Now We’re Talking, a scripted series from Warner Bros.’ Blue Ribbon Content and Bleacher Report’s Uninterrupted, recently launched its third episode, with four more to come.

Now We’re Talking stars Tug Coker and Tommy Dewey as Tug and Tommy, a pair of washed-up NFL quarterbacks -- one starter and one backup -- who look to get into the commentary game. Due in part to the personal animosity they share toward one another, they make for a terrible on-screen duo. As the show’s trailer suggests, their chemistry is so awful that their broadcasts take on a “so bad it’s good” feel among fans.

Uninterrupted is known as a video platform on which athletes can share their thoughts directly with viewers, and Now We’re Talking features plenty of cameo appearances from pro athletes past and present. »

Performer of the Week: Jeannie Berlin

The Performer | Jeannie Berlin

The Show | The Night Of

The Episode | “Ordinary Death” (August 21)

The Performance | The Emmy for outstanding choreography is usually reserved for reality-competition series like So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars. But you’ll see no finer tango on TV this year than Jeannie Berlin’s courtoom cross-examination in Sunday’s episode of The Night Of.

Using the subtlest of gestures, inflections and pauses, Berlin put on a riveting show as her veteran D.A. Helen Weiss undermined the defense’s expert witness Dr. Katz (Chip Zien) with a lethal combination of humor and cynicism, »

‘Insecure’ Teaser: Issa Rae Is Torn Between Two Lovers In New HBO Comedy

26 August 2016 3:23 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Everyone struggles at some point in life and tries to navigate it as best as they can. For best friends Issa (Issa Rae) and Molly (Yvonne Orji), on the new HBO comedy “Insecure,” their own real-life flaws lead them to endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences, but thank goodness they have each other.

“Just when things are going good in your relationship, exes always have a way of popping back up,” says Issa in the first promo for the upcoming series.

Created by Rae and Larry Wilmore, the eight-episode first season explores the black female experience in an unclichéd and authentic way. Issa, like many of us, tries to figure out what – and who – she wants in life, and how to take control of it. Meanwhile, Molly is a successful corporate attorney who appears to have it all but struggles inside as she looks for external ways to fix her life. »

‘Miss Hokusai’ Trailer: Keiichi Hara’s Animated Film Explores an Artistic Father-Daughter Relationship

26 August 2016 11:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s this nutty old man who painted a huge Dharma on a huge sheet of paper and draws sparrows on tiny rice grains. Some may know him as Hokusai the painter, but his daughter, O-Ei, knows him as Tetsuzo.

A new trailer for Keiichi Hara’s animated coming-of-age tale, “Miss Hokusai,” has just been released, courtesy of Gkids and Japanese powerhouse Production I.G. The film follows the remarkable story of the daughter behind one of history’s most famous artists.

As all of Edo flocks to see the work of the revered painter Hokusai (voiced by Yutaka Matsushige), his daughter O-Ei (Anne Watanabe) toils diligently inside his studio. The latest trailer shows her as she begins to work on her own masterful portraits – sold under the name of her father – which are coveted by upper crust Lords and journeyman print makers alike.

‘The Fall: Series 3’ Teaser Trailer: Gillian Anderson is Haunted By Killer Jamie Dornan

24 August 2016 9:04 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It’s been two years since audiences last saw Gillian Anderson as the driven and obsessive Stella Gibson, the detective superintendent who’s been after serial killer Paul Spector (played by Jamie Dornan) in BBC Two’s drama “The Fall.” A new teaser trailer for the third installment has just been released and shows Gibson being haunted by the murderer who was last shot at the end of Season 2.

“You’re under arrest, you’re going to prison,” we hear Anderson’s voice say as she’s seen swimming, recalling the words that she last spoke to Spector and what he told her.

“I live at a level of intensity unknown to you and others of your type,” we hear him say. “You will never know the almost God-like power that I feel when that last bit of breath leaves a body. That feeling of complete possession.”

Review: ‘Casual’ Season 2 Finale Makes the Leap to Must-See TV

23 August 2016 9:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Casual” didn’t elevate to the level of truly great television by chance.

Under creator Zander Lehmann and his talented group of writers (including Liz Tigelaar, whose talents were recently recognized by Showtime), “Casual” has benefitted from the elevated communication and connection between the show’s characters. In IndieWire’s review of Season 2’s first half, we noted how the dialogue between those characters was enhanced by how comfortable we were with them.

And because we were getting to know more about Alex (Tommy Dewey), Valerie (Michaela Watkins) and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr), so, too, were they getting to know each other better.

In reality, that meant Lehmann and team had time to sit with their subjects, insightfully recognizing their strengths. The trio grew magnificently over the back half of Season 2 into the beautiful, unique individuals we TV devotees always want to see and so rarely get to glimpse.

Just as importantly, »

In IndieWire’s review of Season 2’s first half, we noted how the latest from “Casual” benefitted from communication and connection; the dialogue between characters was enhanced by our comfortability with them. And because we were getting to know Alex (Tommy Dewey), Valerie (Michaela Watkins) and Laura (Tara Lynne Barr) all the better, so, too, were they getting to know each other better.

In reality, that meant creator Zander Lehmann and his talented group of writers (shout-out to Liz Tigelaar, whose talents were recently recognized by Showtime) had time to sit with their subjects, insightfully recognizing their strengths. The trio grew magnificently over the back half of Season 2 into the beautiful, unique individuals we TV devotees always want to see and so rarely get to glimpse.

Just as importantly, their conversations became equally unique, culminating with a Season 2 finale that marked the best episode of “Casual” to date and elevated »

7 Emmy Nominations Snubs to Look for Thursday Morning

13 July 2016 1:07 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

“Snubbed” is an imperfect term for the series and performers whose Emmy campaigns conclude Thursday morning—voters intend no disdain, to be sure—but it does capture the feeling of the TV Academy’s annual nominations. Alongside the usual suspects and pleasant surprises, there are inevitably a few disappointments, longtime favorites that lose out and freshman sensations that fail to break through. For those of us on the Emmy beat, in fact, lamenting the Academy’s selections and, yes, “snubs” is as much a rite of passage as celebrating the honorees.

The list below is far from exhaustive. For one thing, it largely excludes series that appear to be on the bubble; I’m not ready to give up on Rachel Bloom (“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) in the Outstanding Lead Actress (Comedy) race, or on “The Americans” in the Outstanding Drama Series category, though both might well end up on the outside looking in. »

You Should Be Watching… Casual

6 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tony Black on why you should be watching Casual

Be honest, you’ve done online dating, haven’t you? I bet you have. I certainly have, infact I was lucky enough to meet the woman I’ve been with for over a year and will likely spend the rest of my life with via online dating. I bet most of you have tried it, or at least considered trying it, but how many of you were truly honest in your profile? How many of you are looking for friends with benefits or no strings attached? Or how many of you, secretly, are after that special someone to watch Netflix with and chill? That, simply, is the premise behind Casual, from writer Zander Lehmann, now midway through its second season on Hulu and already picked up for a third.

Inheriting from the late, lamented Californication, the mantle of dysfunctional, nihilistic comedy »

The Dewey System: How to Make Friends the ‘Casual’ Way

5 July 2016 9:28 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Editor’s Note: This post is presented in support of Hulu’s original comedy series “Casual.” Watch new episodes on Tuesdays, streaming only on Hulu.

Cities can be scary places to make new friends. It can be hard enough just navigating between boroughs or through traffic, let alone forming bonds with people you may only have time to see once a week. Sure, texts and tweets help connect people in the modern world, but — similar to romantic relationships — you don’t want to come off as overbearing, clingy or “too” interested. So how do you solidify those friendships without alienating your would-be friends?

Let “Casual’s” Alex and his family of students teach you.

Played by Tommy Dewey on Hulu’s hit comedy, Alex has a way with people that’s hard to emulate, but not impossible. Below, we’ve collected a list of his techniques for meeting and sustaining relationships. »

Season Two Of Golden Globe Nominee ‘Casual’ Arrives On Hulu

7 June 2016 11:58 AM, PDT | Tubefilter.com | See recent Tubefilter News news »

Hulu recently announced that one of its longest-running original series, Deadbeat, would not be back for a fourth season, but one day later, the video platform did roll out new episodes of what is perhaps its most-acclaimed comedy. Casual, created by Zander Lehmann, has begun its second season on Hulu.

Casual, which features Oscar-nominee Jason Reitman as one of its executive producers, premiered last October to generally positive reviews. It stars Michaela Watkins and Tommy Dewey as Alex and Laura, who move in together after Laura’s marriage falls apart. Tara Lynne Barr co-stars as Laura’s daughter, who has problems of her own. Hulu waited just two weeks after Casual’s premiere before renewing it for a second season.

Two months later, more good news arrived, as the show earned a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical category. The Globe nod was the »
