‘Emerald City’ Producers Shaun Cassidy and David Schulner Go Beyond the Wizard of Oz — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Last Week’S Podcast: ‘One Day at a Time’ Producer Gloria Calderon Kellett and Star Justina Machado on Reinventing Norman Lear’s Classic Sitcom — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

If you’ve seen “The Wizard of Oz” — and who hasn’t? — then you only know a fraction of L. Frank Baum’s “Oz” mythology (which spawned 13 sequel books).

“These stories are there and ripe for retelling,” says “Emerald City” executive producer David Schulner, who took over the NBC series with fellow executive producer Shaun Cassidy after Josh Friedman, who originally developed the show, departed.

“My only experience when I came to Josh’s script was seeing the movie,” he recently told IndieWire’s Liz Shannon Miller. “When you read the books it’s clearly written for kids, but its like the Pixar movies,” he says, noting there’s plenty for adults to latch on to as well. “The books »

‘The Librarians’ Star Noah Wyle: What’s Driving Him to Save Family Friendly TV

19 January 2017 9:51 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Noah Wyle knows “The Librarians” is one of television’s most unique shows— especially on TNT.

The show, which airs its season finale this Sunday, isn’t a dark drama like the network’s latest original series, “Animal Kingdom” and “Good Behavior.” But Wyle, who executive produces the show, appeared in seven episodes this season, directed two and even wrote one, believes “The Librarians” serves a purpose, as one of the few shows on TV crafted to serve as true family programming.

“There’s certain shows that have a big audience but don’t necessarily fit the edgier brand that I think TNT is trying to be. Yet, they bring an audience that’s a pretty good demographic,” he said to IndieWire. “They have been supportive, they have been marketing the show well this year, and the numbers speak to that. I’m hoping that they figure out that it’s not an either/or. »

2017 TV Preview: How the Next Two Weeks Shape the Year in Television — And You Can Help!

9 January 2017 2:54 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Thanks in large part to social media (and the internet in general), many of the walls surrounding industry exclusive events are starting to come down. In-person access may still be restricted, but diligent fans can speak directly to those lucky few getting in the doors, and in turn learn what they need to know from the discussion inside.

Such is at least the case with the TCAs, the biannual gathering of television critics who attend panels with the stars of upcoming TV shows. Every day for two weeks, hundreds of critics will fill a hotel ballroom to ask questions of stars, producers, creators, writers, and more talent filling the 2017 TV slate. And while you can always ask questions to the rich and famous yourself online, odds are much better that if you ask a good question to a professional interviewer and TV expert, that query might reach the ears of »

‘One Day at a Time’ Producer Gloria Calderon Kellett and Star Justina Machado on Reinventing Norman Lear’s Classic Sitcom — IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

Last Week’S Podcast: Seth Meyers Reflects on This Crazy Year, and How He’s Gearing Up for 2017 – IndieWire’s Turn It On Podcast

One Day at a Time” executive producer Gloria Calderon Kellett can’t be boxed in. The writer, producer and even performer has written countless plays, has worked on multi-camera sitcoms (“Rules of Engagement”), single-camera comedies (“How I Met Your Mother”), hour-long dramas (“iZombie,” “Devious Maids”) and more.

Now, along with Mike Royce (“Men of a Certain Age,” “Enlisted”) and the legendary Norman Lear, Calderon Kellett is behind Netflix’s new take on Lear’s “One Day at a Time.”

Together they have come up with a new show that has won over critics, most of whom are predisposed to hate remakes and reboots.

The basic concept of the new “One Day at a Time” remains the same: A single mother raising her teenage kids. But a lot is different. »

‘One Day at a Time’ Review: Netflix Reboot of Norman Lear’s Classic Shows ‘Fuller House’ How It’s Done

8 January 2017 5:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

With a few successful exceptions, multi-camera sitcoms have been on life support critically and commercially for years. Younger viewers brought up on movies and single camera series reject the bright lights and laugh tracks associated with one of America’s longest-running TV genres. Many networks, including broadcast, have invested heavily elsewhere, even as “The Big Bang Theory” continues to dominate ratings and “Fuller House” nets (presumably) big numbers for Netflix.

Combine the new generation’s disdain for the format with the fact most critics dislike its most popular entries, and it’s no surprise stories keep circulating that the genuinely great multi-cam sitcom is dying; a dinosaur impossible to resurrect respectably, no matter what mad scientist wants to open a park.

If that’s true, then “One Day at a Time” is the mosquito preserved in amber, and showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce the experts extracting Norman Lear’s DNA. »

Norman Lear on Ending His Long TV Absence With ‘One Day at a Time’

4 January 2017 9:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In the 1970s, Norman Lear reigned as TV’s most prolific and influential comedy writer and producer — the person responsible for such landmark shows as “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” “Good Times,” “Sanford and Son,” and “Maude.” This month, Lear will end his 22-year absence from series television with the premiere of “One Day at a Time,” a reboot of his classic comedy about a single mother raising two children.

His return to a TV landscape that has shifted radically in his absence could not be timelier.

Sony, which acquired rights to Lear’s library when it purchased Columbia in 1989, had long been toying with the idea of rebuilding one of Lear’s comedies around a Latino family. It was the idea of Lear’s producing partner Brent Miller to focus on “One Day at a Time,” but Lear’s involvement was never in question, even before the wheels were rolling on the project.

‘One Day At A Time’ Review: Netflix’s Norman Lear Reboot Is A Poignant Winner

3 January 2017 2:08 PM, PST | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

Like George Clinton and his resurrection of the funk, the Netflix reboot of Norman Lear's One Day At A Time has shown that if you stay true to your groove, old tunes can sound fresh — very fresh when you have Rita Moreno nailing it every time in what is one of the best sitcoms yet from the streaming service. Launching on January 6 for its 13-episode first season, the 2017 version from writers/executive producers Mike Royce and Gloria Calderon Kellett continues that best… »

'One Day at a Time': TV Review

3 January 2017 2:01 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

Netflix's second stab at remaking/rebooting a nostalgically relevant family sitcom is far more artistically successful than the first, as, rather than being beholden to the stars and comedic voice of the original, the new One Day at a Time has been made only with 2017 in mind. Anchored by a tremendous ensemble and a forceful creative team and led by executive producer Norman Lear and showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce, Netflix's One Day at a Time is timely, soulful, consistently funny and, more than anything, blessed with great warmth.
