11 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

... Now this is a party we wish we could've attended!

It's already been established that Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon are basically having the best time ever shooting their rendition of A Wrinkle in Time in New Zealand, but on Wednesday, they took things to a whole new level at the wrap party. Director Ava DuVernay posted video of Winfrey getting behind the bar and making margaritas on her Instagram Stories, and the 63-year-old legendary media mogul is clearly pretty great at it!

"This is how we do it!" DuVernay joked as Winfrey blended up and poured the delicious-looking drinks.

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling Are Basically on Vacation While Shooting 'A Wrinkle in Time'

Where can we get an office like this?

Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling have been hard at work on set of the upcoming A Wrinkle in Time remake, though judging by their Instagrams, calling it "work" is a stretch.

Warning: This vacation porn is totally safe for work. In fact, you might just need it to get through another day in the office.  In honor of their upcoming 2018 remake of A Wrinkle in Time, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling and director Ava DuVernay boarded a plane and headed to New Zealand to get to work.  However, from the look of these stunning social media shots, it seems work and play collided in the ultimate trip for these lucky ladies.  "Never seen a sky like dis. New Zealo is off the chain," Kaling, who will portray Mrs. Who, captioned a shot of a vibrant blue sky and seafoam shoreline. The scenery was so beautiful, it could have passed for »

How I Completely Gave up on The Mindy Project Even Though it’s Still Good

20 February 2017 4:30 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

A weird thing happens when a show you like appears on another network.  It’s almost like when a friend of yours moves out of town.  You’re 100% bound to talk to that person less and when all is said and done you might not be great friends with them anymore.  It’s not The Mindy Project’s fault but for some reason ever since it moved to Hulu I haven’t watched it once.  It’s the same show.  It has the same actors.  It has the same writing.  Mindy Kaling is as funny as she’s ever been.  But I just don’t watch it

Seth Meyers Shreds Late Night Script in Wake of Trump's 'Bats—t' Presser

16 February 2017 7:42 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

President Trump’s incendiary, rambunctious, supremely awkward press conference on Thursday forced Seth Meyers to literally flip the script.

On Thursday’s Late Night, Meyers revealed that Trump’s presser was so bizarre that he had to jettison a planned Closer Look segment that focused on Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare. And to prove his point, he trotted out a paper shredder and destroyed the script on air.

Sweet/Vicious: proof of how vital female voices are to TV

15 February 2017 2:33 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Caroline Preece Feb 17, 2017

As the fate of MTV's Sweet/Vicious hangs in the balance, here's why TV in 2017 needs many more female voices calling the shots...

If you haven’t heard about Sweet/Vicious, the new comedy/superhero series airing on MTV in the Us, then you’re seriously missing out.

See related  The unmade films of Kevin Smith Why Mallrats 2 can’t get made Kevin Smith interview: Yoga Hosers, Arrow, Mallrats Clerks III dead, new Jay & Silent Bob movie coming instead

Dishearteningly, despite a growing cult following based on word of mouth, there’s been a distinct lack of noise around the show since it premiered. As of writing this it's ‘on the bubble’ and facing possible cancellation as MTV re-evaluates its scripted drama efforts, and there’s no word of a UK air date. All of this has the potential to limit the number of eyeballs that fall upon the show, »

Can New Voices Break Through in Pilot Season Dominated by Familiar Names?

8 February 2017 10:15 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The broadcast TV development process has changed dramatically during the past few years. The influx of competition from cable and streaming services with big budgets has forced the Big Four networks to move quickly, warm up to spec scripts, offer straight-to-series commitments, and in many instances, accept the fact that they are no longer the first stop for hot TV packages hitting the marketplace.

But one thing that doesn’t seem to have changed much in all of this upheaval is the reliance on tried-and-true hit-makers. As networks zero in on their last few pilot orders for the 2017-18 development cycle, the slate is dominated by a host of familiar uber-producers: Shonda Rhimes, Greg Berlanti, Tina Fey, Bill Lawrence. The “How I Met Your Mother” team is back at CBS with a comedy, and Marc Cherry of “Desperate Housewives” fame has come home to ABC, with Reba McEntire in tow, for »
