In the meantime: Is this a project you’d want to see? Tell us in the comments.

Clara’s Ghost

Logline: Set over the course of a single evening at the Reynolds’ Family home in suburban Connecticut, “Clara’s Ghost” tells the story of Clara Reynolds who, fed up with constant ribbing from her self-centered showbiz family, finds solace in and guidance from the supernatural force she believes is haunting her.

Elevator Pitch:

A middle-aged homemaker contending for attention within her ego-obsessed, show-biz family struggles to maintain her grasp on reality. This film explores the toxic side effects of the entertainment industry set against the backdrop of a classic New England ghost story. »

‘Thanksgiving’ Review: Amy Sedaris and Chris Elliott Carry Wacky Holiday Series By ‘Inside Amy Schumer’ Ep

18 November 2016 1:00 PM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Political dynasties may find no love from Americans these days, but that doesn’t mean we don’t love our comedy dynasties. Fans of David Sedaris and Amy Sedaris will agree a little nepotism isn’t always a bad thing, as well as those who ate crow when Abby Elliott proved herself worthy of the strings (real or rumored) pulled by her father, “Saturday Night Live” alum Chris Elliott, to get her an audition for the show that started his career. Now, two great comedic families finally join forces as Amy Sedaris and Chris Elliott play the world’s worst parents in “Thanksgiving,” a loopy family comedy that — like its target audience — could use an Adderall.

Welcome back to the Weekend Warrior, your weekly look at the new movies hitting theaters this weekend, as well as other cool events and things to check out. 

This Past Weekend:   

Another bad weekend where nothing really popped, which is bad news for a month at the box office where only Clint Eastwood’s Sully exceeded any expectations.  Tim Burton’s new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children came out just below my predictions with $29 million, but the Mark Wahlberg-Peter Berg disaster flick Deepwater Horizon was right around where I predicted with $20.2 million. The comedy Masterminds tanked with just $6.5 million for the weekend to end up in sixth place while Disney’s The Queen of Katwe did slightly better than predicted with $2.5 million.  

The first full weekend in October has a good deal of competition from the release of the video game Mafia III to the »

7 Great Independent Pilots from SeriesFest We Hope Become TV Series

30 June 2016 9:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The world of independent television is pretty chaotic right now, largely because, unlike the indie film scene, there’s no clear trajectory to success. Some shows threw all their money into shooting a pilot. Some shows have shot multiple episodes. Some shows have found alternate distribution opportunities already. Some shows remain unseen. All of them, though, want to go beyond their current status.

Some of these pilots were not world premieres, but all of the ones I saw represented the impressive state of independent production today; where a shoestring budget can still produce content on a level equal to what you might watch on TV. Below are just a few of the pilots that impressed me most, »
