Hollywood’s New Creative Leaders of 2017

18 October 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Each year Variety’s New Leaders feature profiles the most prominent up-and-comers in the entertainment business. To determine this year’s worthies, Variety looked for go-getters across disciplines, from television, digital, music and film, to law and finance, as well as content creators. They were proposed by their bosses and peers who have worked with them and seen their rise. All are age 40 or under, and Variety has measured them by the progress of their career trajectories: do they take calculated risks? How fast have they risen in their companies? Are they innovative and employ solutions to problems that are creative? While it’s hard to pinpoint the “it” factor, these folks embody that intangible. The people on the list have helped build the brilliant careers of their clients, shepherded hit television shows and successful movies, created small-screen series, films and animated shows, launched digital platforms, fostered hit music, counseled top dealmakers and financed them, and are some »

Digital Screenplay Market Scriptd Adds Curation Element to Bolster Scripts From Underrepresented Groups

5 October 2017 7:39 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Think of Scriptd like IMDb, but for unproduced screenplays. The digital marketplace boasts an intuitive interface that makes it easy to sort through (totally digital) stacks of scripts, all looking for a home to call their own. First launched in 2015, the website packages each script for maximum readability, first listed by title, author, and logline, along with tags denoting if it’s a film, television, or web project. Click on a script, and you can read its first few pages and reach out if you’d like to purchase the full script or are eager to chat about picking up the rights.

Perhaps it’s too easy. In an effort to maximize the browsing capabilities of Scriptd and help shine a light on the works of traditionally underrepresented groups, Scriptd has now added a curated function in partnership with industry experts. Per Scriptd, their aim is simple: “to both increase inclusion and quality, »

“Women Don’t Always Get to Play the Funny Parts”: Julie Klausner Talks Making Difficult People Herself at Ifp Week

21 September 2017 3:07 PM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

If there’s a common thread that runs through any truly original work, it’s this: The creators saw something that wasn’t in the world, so they created it themselves. You hear that a lot in independent films. You also hear it, increasingly, in TV now too. The lines separating cinema and television are getting blurrier. For further proof, witness Julie Klausner’s appearance at Ifp Week 2017. Klausner is the creator of Difficult People, which is not a movie but a hit TV show on Hulu. But the way she approached her TV show sounds a lot the way indie filmmakers talk […] »

Why the Woody Allen ‘Difficult People’ Parody Exposes the Power of His Legacy

9 August 2017 1:15 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

The news cycle surrounding Woody Allen these days tends to go as follows: Reminder of previous allegations, followed by announcement of new film, followed by talent in new project being asked about allegations, followed by new film receiving either critical acclaim or relative indifference, followed by new reminder of previous allegations.

Right now, we’re in the “announcement of new film” phase, with Tuesday’s casting of Timothée Chalamet, Elle Fanning, and Selena Gomez in Allen’s upcoming untitled feature film. But that same morning, Hulu premiered the most savage takedown yet of not just Woody Allen’s modern day work as an auteur, but the cult of personality around him.

Difficult People” in general and creator Julie Klausner in particular have never been shy about poking fun at certain topics the rest of Hollywood might consider taboo. Just consider the metric ton of jokes about Kevin Spacey’s sexuality »

Et Obsessions: 'Life of Kylie,' Kesha's 'Rainbow' Album, 'Difficult People,' and Everything Princess Diana

8 August 2017 6:45 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Here at Et, we're obsessed with a lot of things -- and for the week of Aug. 7 to Aug. 13, this is what we're most excited about:

Why We're Obsessed With 'Difficult People'

The sassy sitcom that raises self-involvement to new comedic heights is back! Difficult People's Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner return for a third season on Hulu, alongside the rest of the cast, including Andrea Martin, James Urbaniak, and Gabourey Sidibe, plus an impressive array of guest stars: Stockard Channing, Tony Hale and Vanessa Williams! Meanwhile, the show will also welcome back Fred Armisen and scene-stealer Jackie Hoffman. During Et's chat on the phone with the cast, Cole Escola -- who is also returning to the series -- dished on his on-screen ex-wife Trish, who will be played by Williams. "I don't think that anything gets better than that," Escola says of Williams, teasing that "she was so game" for the show's antics »

‘Difficult People’ Review: Season 3 Is The Deepest Yet, Taking On Woody Allen, Politics, and Happiness

8 August 2017 9:33 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Difficult People” isn’t for everyone, but that’s a big factor in its charm. The always whipsmart, fast-paced comedy created by Julie Klausner is extremely insular in its focus on Julie (Klausner) and Billy (Billy Eichner), pop culture-obsessed New York comedians whose bad attitudes are often the cause of their problems. But that focus means that as the show has progressed, the characters have had the chance to… well, maybe not “grow,” in the traditional sitcom sense. However, they do seem capable of change.

Which is good news, as Season 3 of a series like this could easily fall into a more-of-the-same trap. The core principles of “Difficult People” haven’t been altered — Julie and Billy are still best friends, and still relatively disdainful of anyone outside their friendship. But, based on the five episodes screened, “Difficult People” isn’t interested in treading water this season, contributing to a richer, »

Luann de Lesseps' biggest fan has a message for her.

8 August 2017 8:40 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Difficult People gets political, going wholly anti-“Bazinga!” in its Season 3 premiere.

The Hulu comedy returned Tuesday with three episodes, beginning with Billy and Julie interrupting CBS’ live broadcast of Sunday in the Park With George, which has been retitled Bazinga in the Park With George and stars the cast of The Big Bang Theory. Billy’s sign reads “Keep your Bazinga! out of my park,” and it’s perfect.

Exclusive: Tony Hale, Billy’s Love Life and More Revelations About ‘Difficult People’ Season 3

7 August 2017 8:35 AM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Normally a packed Italian restaurant and bar in the East Village of New York City, San Marzano has been transformed into Lola’s D’s Café (more on that name change in a bit), a less busy café run by Denise (Gabourey Sidibe) and Nate (Derrick Baskin), where Billy Epstein (Billy Eichner) works on Difficult People. During Et’s visit to the set of the Hulu comedy, which just so happens to be a day they’re filming scenes from the season three finale, things are noticeably different.

For one thing, there’s that name. Normally called D’s Café, the place has been taken over by Lola, an outspoken transgender waitress played by the bitingly funny Shakina Nayfack. “Lola saved us from Sephora,” Denise explains to the staff -- Billy, Lola, Denise, Nate and Matthew (Cole Escola), who has triumphantly returned from a Supermarket Sweep-turned-Scientology fiasco -- gathered around a table. But there’s »
