Gina Rodriguez's star continues to soar. I can exclusively reveal that the Jane the Virgin star has signed her first major endorsement deal as the face and brand ambassador of Kipling's Summer 2015 campaign. Rodriguez is no stranger to the Kipling brand. "Kipling came into my life when I was a kid," the Golden Globe winner tells me. "We couldn't afford it at the time, so I saved my allowance." She was in junior high school when her mom helped by giving her half the amount to buy her first Kipling bag, a forest green book bag. "I kept it forever," Rodriquez said, adding, "When they came to me, it was like full circle. I mean, this is my childhood. This is the brand »

The Peabody Awards have grown to be a staple of media since their beginning in 1940, as the committee awards programs they see as excellent in quality. Beginning with only awards for radio, the group soon expanded to television, giving tv shows their due credit since 1948.
While the actual awards ceremony has yet to occur, the Awards committee follows an unusual process by announcing the winners ahead of the actual ceremony, where the recipients receive their prizes. With Fred Armisen confirmed as the host of the 2015 festivities, which will take place on May 31st, the group has now announced the Entertainment Program winners for the 74th incarnation of the awards, along with their reasoning. The winners, who join already-announced recipients Sir David Attenborough and Afropop Worldwide, can be seen below.

The 74th annual Peabody Awards will be handed out to a typically eclectic list of entertainment programs, ranging from the ribald “Inside Amy Schumer” to the incisive “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver” to lower-profile critical darlings including Channel 4’s “Black Mirror” and SundanceTV’s “Rectify.”
The CW continued its kudos hot streak with “Jane the Virgin” also landing the coveted trophy from the University of Georgia’s Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication.
FX grabbed two, with “Fargo” and “The Americans” making the cut. SundanceTV was also recognized for miniseries “The Honorable Woman.” HBO got the nod for Steven Soderbergh’s period medical drama “The Knick.”

Jane the Virgin, Season 1, Episodes 14 to 18
Created by Jennie Snyder Urman
Airs Mondays at 9 pm Et on The CW
Over the first season of Jane the Virgin, the evolution of the characters and how they relate to each other has been one of the show’s strengths. The past few episodes have continued that trend, as Xiomara and Rogelio’s relationship has progressed to the point where they live together, causing Rogelio to confront the friction between Xo and his mother. Rafael and Jane, however, have endured numerous ups and downs, from the health of their baby to rejected marriage proposals and breakups, in what has been a compelling set of episodes leading to the season’s last stretch.
The show’s development of relationships over the past few episodes has been fascinating to watch. While the writers wisely stopped sidestepping the central romance and got »

Original: Summit’s Deepwater Horizon, about the 2010 Bp oil-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that took the lives of 11 people and spilled oil into the ocean for a horrific 87 days, got a whole lot less interesting when A Most Violent Year director J.C. Chandor exited and was replaced by Battleship helmer Peter Berg, but the talent that’s being assembled in front of the camera for the pic is undeniably exciting. Mark Wahlberg and Jane the Virgin breakout Gina Rodriguez are already attached, and now The Maze Runner star Dylan O’Brien is in talks for a major role.
O’Brien, who first hit it big with the teen crowd back in 2011 with the hit MTV series Teen Wolf (now gearing up for its fifth season), has been a star »

There’s at least one person who isn’t so thrilled with the newfound friendship between Rogelio and Michael on The CW’s “Jane the Virgin.” That would be Jane (Gina Rodriguez) herself, who, in an exclusive sneak peek from Monday’s episode, is seen trying to talk her dad (Jaime Camil) into backing off a bit from his whirlwind bromance with her ex-boyfriend (Brett Dier). Rogelio and Michael bonded over impressions. That’s the kind of stuff for-life friendships are made of, and Rogelio’s boyish enthusiasm is almost tangible when Jane brings up the M word. But it »
