Amazon Studios to Hire Commissioning Team in London to Amp Up U.K. Original Show Production

5 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Roy Price, head of Amazon Studios, said Wednesday the company would be appointing a commissioning executive in London soon, who will be head of original content for non-u.S. shows, and was looking to amp up its commissioning in the U.K.

Amazon Studios has already invested in eight U.K. shows, including comedies “Fleabag,” written by and starring Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and “Catastrophe,” written by and starring Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan, and was looking to build on that.

Price said that “a good show tends to travel,” and there were few differences in the tastes of his multi-territory audiences.

Speaking at the Edinburgh Intl. TV Festival, Price said that it was more of a winner-takes-all environment in the TV industry nowadays and his objective was to have people love his shows.

“In today’s environment where there are so many TV shows, having a show that 90% of people think is like pretty fair is not that »

Emmy Quickie: ‘Catastrophe’ Star Sharon Horgan Exclusive StudioWrap Portraits (Photos)

18 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Sharon Horgan’s “Catastrophe” character can occasionally be harsh, but the actress says that’s how she was envisioned from the beginning. “The Sharon character is cynical and she is a pessimist,” said Horgan, who also serves as co-creator and executive producer on the Amazon comedy alongside Rob Delaney. “She’s kind of hard on herself, and she’s hard on Rob. And that was kind of the plan, because we wanted to turn the male-female stereotype on its head a bit.” Even still, sometimes the character’s cynicism needs to be toned down a bit after the first draft of the script is completed. »

Why Julia Louis-Dreyfus Deserves Her Fifth ‘Veep’ Emmy: IndieWire’s Emmys Endorsements (Comedy)

17 August 2016 12:44 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Comedy Series

Black-ish

Master of None

Modern Family

Silicon Valley

Transparent

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

Veep

IndieWire’s Vote: “Veep

It hurts us to think “Transparent” and “Master of None” may never get a turn at the table, especially this year after both delivered such stellar seasons: Jill Soloway’s follow-up far surpassed her already impressive first season, and Aziz Ansari’s Netflix debut showed just how diversity in front of and behind the camera can benefit our culture (not to mention how smart, insightful writing can still appeal to mainstream audiences). But David Mandel pulled off an equally impressive feat by matching (if not besting) “Veep” creator Armando Iannucci’s Emmy-winning prior season, stepping into massive shoes and running a six-minute mile without tripping. The best comedy, nay, the best series on TV remains the one to beat this Emmys season. All hail the queen.

Emmy Nominees: Pay-tv Writers & Directors Rule Comedy Roost

10 August 2016 10:12 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

HBO racked up a tidy nine nominations for comedy series writing and directing, but the bigger story is that every nom went to a show on a subscription-based service; none went to basic cable or broadcast. HBO, Netflix and Amazon all need attention-grabbing shows to drive subs, and with these comedies, they have just that.

Veep” (HBO)

Directing: Chris Addison, “Morning After”; Dale Stern, “Mother”; David Mandel, “Kissing Your Sister”

Writing: David Mandel, “Morning After”; Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck, “Mother”

Chris Addison remembers walking onto the Paramount lot feeling worried. A lot of changes had taken place on “Veep” since he was last on set. Showrunner Armando Iannucci had left the show and there was a new man in charge. That wasn’t all. The comedy that for four seasons had shot in Baltimore in an old warehouse had now moved to Hollywood and even the set was looking just a little bit too… nice »

Sarah Jessica Parker Digs Into ‘Divorce,’ HBO’s Next Great Drama (That’s Also a Comedy)

30 July 2016 12:11 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Divorce is always thought of as this solitary endeavor, but what we discovered was to go through a divorce, you need the other person a lot. The process is so brutal and it can be made better by this other person — or not.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s explanation of “Divorce,” HBO’s upcoming half-hour series from “Catastrophe” creator Sharon Horgan, doesn’t exactly make it sound like a laugh riot. Despite “Divorce” being Parker’s first series at HBO since the Emmy-winning comedy “Sex and the City” and Horgan’s established work as a top-tier comedy writer, the series sounds far deeper than even Carrie Bradshaw’s most challenging moments.

During the half-hour panel discussion at HBO’s Television Critics Association press day on Saturday, Parker, Horgan, co-star Thomas Haden Church and executive producer Paul Simms certainly dug into some pretty scary territory — especially for anyone who’s ever been married. »

Westworld, Divorce and Insecure Score Premiere Dates on HBO

30 July 2016 11:40 AM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

We're one step closer to the whacky Westworld debut.

HBO announced at the TCA press tour today it would debut on Sunday, October 2 and be joined the following week, October 9, by new comedies Divorce and Insecure.

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, Evan Rachel Wood, James Marsden, Thandie Newton and Jeffrey Wright among others. The cast is large and impressive.

Hopkins plays Westworld's creator, Harris the evil Man in Black and Wood is Dolores Abernathy, a rancher's daughter who discovers her entire life is a lie.

Westworld had a long road making it to the air, with production delays, casting scandals and concerns about violence.

The series is produced for television by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy.

HBO officially describes Westworld as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, »

Sarah Jessica Parker on How HBO’s ‘Divorce’ Is Different from ‘Sex and the City’

30 July 2016 11:35 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

12 years after “Sex and the City” left the air, Sarah Jessica Parker is returning to HBO for a new comedy, “Divorce,” written by “Catastrophe” co-creator Sharon Horgan, who executive produces with Paul Simms. While Carrie Bradshaw still looms large in popular culture, Parker insists that her new character, Frances, could not be further removed from her previous lovelorn heroine — which is thanks in large part to Horgan’s writing.

“I don’t think that we actually talked a lot about trying to make her different, I think this story is different,” Parker admitted during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Saturday. “I was always interested in the story of marriage, and by virtue of that interest alone it was automatically different. The only time we were cognizant of distinction was when we started talking about the wardrobe. I think Frances was so much her own person from the moment I »

Sarah Jessica Parker Explains Biggest Difference Between Her Divorce Character and Carrie Bradshaw

30 July 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Sarah Jessica Parker is not channeling Carrie Bradshaw in her new HBO comedy series Divorce. For starters, unlike Carrie, her new alter ego Frances “was so much her own person from the moment I read the pilot,” the actress explained at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Saturday. “She was so distinct from not only Carrie, but from every other character I’ve ever played.”

Westworld” is described as a dark odyssey about the dawn of artificial consciousness and the evolution of sin, exploring a world in which every human appetite, no matter how noble or depraved, can be indulged.

Co-creator Jonathan Nolan explains, “Building on the incredibly evocative concept of the original film, we wanted to pose the question: If you could be completely immersed in a fantasy, one in which you could do whatever you wanted, would you discover things about yourself that you didn’t want to know?”

Fellow co-creator Lisa Joy adds, “We also wanted to explore what it means to be human from the outside in – through the eyes of the ‘hosts’: the »
