23 August 2016 10:36 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Joseph Fiennes has been cast in Hulu’s upcoming drama “The Handmaid’s Tale” opposite star Elisabeth Moss, Variety has confirmed.

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

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

A new Variety report suggests that the studio’s success hasn’t fully translated on the television end of the spectrum, as “Transparent” — a critical favorite and multiple Emmy winner credited with bringing transgender issues to wider cultural attention — is lagging in terms of actual viewership.
