What Makes TV ‘Very Good’ in 2017? Damon Lindelof, Aya Cash, The Cast of ‘Casual’ and More Share Insights

20 February 2017 2:42 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

If television were a universe, it would be the Marvel universe: so large and loosely tied together, it’s kinda scary.

Television provides challenging ongoing narratives like “The Leftovers” and momentary blips of brilliance (like this). Moreover, television opens doors to new worlds and provides revealing facts about the ones we already know. It’s a medium of great power and untapped potential. Television is very good, in many, many different ways.

So to celebrate the 100th episode of IndieWire’s Very Good Television Podcast, co-hosts Ben Travers (IndieWire TV Critic) and Liz Shannon Miller (IndieWire’s TV Editor) reached out to a few of their favorite influential people working in television today. The question sounds simple: What makes for “very »

‘Casual’ Creator Zander Lehmann Rides Peak TV Wave

7 January 2017 4:14 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Whereas prior to texting, you had to pick up the phone and have a real human. »
